Step 1. Meeting electrical connection requirements
 CAUTION
For personal safety, do not use an extension cord with this appliance. Remove the house fuse or open the circuit breaker before beginning installation.

This appliance must be supplied with the proper voltage and frequency, and be connected to an individual, properly grounded branch circuit, protected by a circuit breaker or fuse having amperage as specified on the rating plate. The rating plate is located on the bottom side of the control panel. We recommend you have the electrical wiring and hookup of your range connected by a qualified electrician. After installation, have the electrician show you where your main range disconnect is located. Check with your local utilities for electrical codes which apply in your area. Failure to wire your oven according to governing codes could result in a hazardous condition. If there are no local codes, your range must be wired and fused to meet the requirements of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70–Latest Edition. You can get a copy by writing: National Fire Protection Association Batterymarch Park Quincy, MA 02269

Effective January 1, 1996, the National Electrical Code requires that new construction (not existing) utilize a 4-conductor connection to an electric range.
When installing an electric range in new construction, follow Steps 2 and 3 for a 4-wire connection.
You must use a 3-wire or 4-wire, single-phase A.C. 208Y/120 Volt or 240/120 Volt, 60-hertz electrical system. If the electrical service provided does not meet the above specifications, have a licensed electrician install an approved outlet. Use only a 3-conductor or a 4-conductor UL-listed range cord. These cords may be provided with ring terminals on the wire and a strain relief device.
A range cord rated at 40 amps with 125/250 minimum volt range is required. A 50 amp range cord is not recommended but if used, it should be marked for use with a nominal 1 3⁄8″ diameter connection openings. Care should be taken to center the cable and strain relief within the knockout hole to keep the edge from damaging the cable.

  • Because range terminals are not accessible after the range is in position, a flexible service conduit or cord must be used.
     NOTE
    If the power connection is plugged in improperly, the following message appears on the display.
  • LCD, PMOLED: Wire installation fails
  • LED : bAd LinE
    Reconnect the power connection properly, and the message disappears.
