Electrical Shock Hazard

  • Electrical ground is required on this appliance.

  • Do not connect to the electrical supply until appliance is permanently grounded.

  • Disconnect power to the junction box before making the electrical connection.

  • This appliance must be connected to a grounded, metallic, permanent wiring system, or a grounding connector should be connected to the grounding terminal or wire lead on the appliance.

  • Do not use a gas supply line for grounding the appliance.

Failure to do any of the above could result in a fire, personal injury or electrical shock.

In cold weather shipping and storage conditions, make sure that oven is in final location at least three (3) hours before switching on power. Switching on power while oven is still cold may damage the oven controls.

3. Electrical connection

It is the responsibility and obligation of the consumer to contact a qualified installer to assure that the electrical installation is adequate and is in conformance with the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No. 70-latest edition, or with CSA Standard C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code, Part 1, and local codes and ordinances.

Risk of electrical shock (Failure to heed this warning may result in electrocution or other serious injury.) This appliance is equipped with copper lead wire. If connection is made to aluminum house wiring, use only connectors that are approved for joining copper and aluminum wire in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local code and ordinances. When installing connectors having screws which bear directly on the steel and/or aluminum flexible conduit, do no tighten screws sufficiently to damage the flexible conduit. Do not over bend or excessively distort flexible conduit to avoid separation of convolutions en exposure of internal wires.

DO NOT ground to a gas supply pipe. DO NOT connect to electrical power supply until appliance is permanently grounded. Connect the ground wire before turning on the power.

(If your appliance is equipped with a white neutral conductor.) This appliance is manufactured with a white neutral power supply and a frame connected copper wire. The frame is grounded by connection of grounding lead to neutral lead at the termination of the conduit, if used in USA, in a new branch circuit installation (1996 NEC), mobile home, recreational vehicles, where local code do not permit grounding trough the neutral (white) wire or in Canada, disconnect the white and green lead from each other and use ground lead to ground unit in accordance with local codes, connect neutral lead to branch circuit-neutral conductor in usual manner see Figure 4. If your appliance is to be connected to a 3 wire grounded junction box (US only), where local code permit connecting the appliance- grounding conductor to the neutral (white) see Figure 3.

NOTE TO ELECTRICIAN: The armored cable leads supplied with the appliance are UL-recognized for connection to larger gauge household wiring. The insulation of the leads is rated at temperatures much higher than temperature rating of household wiring. The current carrying capacity of the conductor is governed by the temperature rating of the insulation around the wire, rather than the wire gauge alone.

Where local codes permit connecting the appliance- grounding conductor to the neutral (white) wire (US Only) (see figure 3):

  • 1.

    Disconnect the power supply.

  • 2.

    In the junction box:

connect appliance and power supply cable wires as shown in Figure 3.
