Electrical Connection

 

To Avoid Electrical Shock Hazard, before installing the appliance, switch power OFF at the Service panel and lock the panel to prevent the power from being switched on accidentally.

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

This appliance is manufactured with a frame connected, green or bare ground wire. Connect the appliance cable to the junction box through the CSA or UL-listed conduit connector. Complete electrical connection according to local codes and ordinances.

Connect with Copper Wire Only

  • The flexible (4’) armored cable should be connected directly to the junction box.
  • Do not cut the conduit.
  • A CSA or UL-listed conduit connector must be provided at the junction box.
  • Do not ground to a gas pipe.
  • Do not have a fuse in the grounding or neutral circuit.
  • Fuse both supply (phase) lines.
  • A time delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended.
  • Connect directly to the fused disconnect (or circuit breaker box) through flexible, armored or non-metallic sheathed, copper cable (with grounding wire).
  • If codes permit and a separate grounding wire is used, it is recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the grounding path and wire gauge is in accordance with local codes.

If the Appliance is to be Completely Enclosed in a Cabinet, feed the appliance cable through the opening in the cabinet. Make the electrical connection following the appropriate steps for your installation.

  1. Disconnect the power supply.
  2. Remove the junction box cover.
  3. Connect the appliance cable to the junction box through the CSA or UL-listed conduit connector.
  4. Connect the two black wires together with twist-on connectors.
  5. Connect the two red wires together with twist-on connectors.
  6. Connect electrical connection according to local codes and ordinances.

If Local Codes PERMIT Connecting Cabinet-Grounding Conductor to neutral white wire in the junction box:

  1. Crimp the green & yellow (or green) and white oven wires.
  2. Connect the crimped green & yellow (or green) and white oven cable wires to the neutral (white) wire in the junction box (Fig. 6.1).
  3. Replace the junction box cover.

OR If Local Codes DO NOT PERMIT Connecting Cabinet-Grounding Conductor to neutral white wire in junction box:
