IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
• The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic
Enforcement Act requires the Governor of
California to publish a list of substances known to
the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive harm and requires businesses to warn
customers of potential exposure to such substances.
• Gas appliances can cause minor exposure to
four of these substances, namely benzene, carbon
monoxide, formaldehyde and soot, caused primarily
by the incomplete combustion of natural gas or
LP fuels. Properly adjusted burners, indicated by
a bluish rather than a yellow flame, will minimize
incomplete combustion. Exposure to these substances
can be minimized further by venting with an open
window or using the ventilation fan.
All appliances—regardless of the manufacturer—
have the potential through improper or careless
use to create safety problems. Therefore the
following safety precautions should be observed.
When You Get Your Cooktop
When you get your cooktop, have the installer
show you the location of the gas cut-off valve
and how to shut it off if necessary.
• Have your cooktop installed and properly
grounded by a qualified installer, in accordance
with the Installation Instructions. Any adjustment
and service should be performed only by qualified
gas cooktop installers or service technicians.
• Plug your cooktop into a 120-volt grounded
outlet only. Do not remove the round grounding
prong from the plug. If in doubt about the
grounding of the home electrical system, it is your
personal responsibility and obligation to have an
ungrounded outlet replaced with a properly-
grounded three-prong outlet in accordance with
the National Electrical Code. Do not use an
extension cord with this appliance.
• Be sure all packing materials are removed from
the cooktop before operating it, to prevent fire or
smoke damage should the packing material ignite.
• Be sure your cooktop is correctly adjusted by a
qualified service technician or installer for the
type of gas (natural or LP) which is to be used.
Your cooktop can be converted for use with either
type of gas. See the Installation Instructions. Your
model is factory adjusted for use with natural gas.
• Do not attempt to repair or replace any
part of your cooktop unless it is specifically
recommended in this guide. All other servicing
should be referred to a qualified technician.
