4. Provide an Adequate Gas Supply

This cooktop is designed to operate on natural gas at 4" 
(10.2 cm) of manifold pressure only.
A pressure regulator is connected in series with the 
manifold on the cooktop and must remain in series with 
the supply line.
For proper operation, the maximum inlet pressure to 
the regulator must be no more than 14" (35.6 cm) of 
water column (W.C.) pressure.
For checking the regulator, the inlet pressure must be at 
least 1" (2.5 cm) (or 2.5 kPa) greater than the regulator 
manifold pressure setting. The regulator is set for 4" 
(10.2 cm) of manifold pressure, the inlet pressure must 
be at least 5" (12.7 cm).
The gas supply line to the cooktop should be ½" (1.3 
cm) or ¾" (7.9 cm) pipe.

5. LP/Propane Gas Conversion

This appliance can be used with Natural gas or LP/
Propane gas. It is shipped from the factory for use with 
natural gas.
If you wish to convert your cooktop for use with LP/
Propane gas, use the supplied fixed orifices in the 
package containing the installation Instructions Manual, 
in a bag marked "FOR LP/PROPANE GAS CONVERSION". 
Follow the installation instructions packaged with the 
orifices.
The conversion must be performed by a qualified service 
technician in accordance with the manufacturer's 
instructions and all local codes and requirements of 
the authority having jurisdiction. Failure to follow 
instructions could result in serious injury or property 
damage. The qualified agency performing this work 
assumes responsibility for the conversion.

 Failure to make the appropriate conversion 

can result in personal injury and property damage.

Important: 

Remove all packing material and literature 

from cooktop before connecting gas and electrical 
supply to cooktop.

6. Install Pressure Regulator

Install the pressure regulator with the arrow on the 
regulator pointing up toward the unit in a position 
where you can reach the access cap.

 FIRE HAZARD. Do not make the 

connection too tight. The regulator is die cast. 
Overtightening may crack the regulator resulting in a gas 
leak and possible fire or explosion.

Use pipe-joint compound made for use with Natural and 
LP/Propane gas to seal all gas connections. If flexible 
connectors are used, be certain connectors are not 
kinked.
The supply line should be equipped with an approved 
shutoff valve. This valve should be located in the same 
room as the cooktop and should be in a location that 
allows ease of opening and closing. Do not block access 
to the shutoff valve. The valve is for turning on or 
shutting off gas to the appliance.

Open the shutoff valve in the gas supply line. Wait a few 
minutes for gas to move through the gas line.

Check for leaks. Leak testing of the appliance shall be 
conducted according to the manufacturer's instructions. 
After connecting the cooktop to the gas supply, check 
the system for leaks with a manometer. If a manometer 
is not available, turn on the gas supply and use a liquid 
leak detector (or soap and water) at all joints and 
connections to check for leaks.

 Do not use a flame to check for leaks from 

gas connections. Checking for leaks with a flame may 
result in a fire or explosion.
Tighten all connections if necessary to prevent gas 
leakage in the cooktop or supply line.
