Information on connecting the Gas.
- Make sure the connection point will be accessible with the cooktop installed.
- To enable the gas supply to be readily shut off by the customer, make sure the connection is fitted with an isolating valve close to the cooktop.
- The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual shut-off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures at or less than 1/2 p.s.i. (3.5 kPa).
- Maximum inlet gas supply pressure 20” W.C. (5 kPa). Minimum gas supply pressure for regulator testing 5” W.C. Natural Gas / 12” W.C LP gas.
- Gas connection to the product must use the nipple supplied with a 1/2” NPT external thread. The supplied gas pressure regulator must be installed where it will be accessible for adjustment. The metal flexible hose used must be new, CSA or UL-approved, and must have a 1/2” NPT external thread on one end and a 1/2” NPT one on the other.
If connecting the gas with a flexible hose
- Ensure the hose is long enough to allow for removal of cooktop for servicing.
- Make sure the connector is located as shown in CLEARANCE DIMENSIONS.
- The hose assembly must be with an Rp 1/2” (ISO 7-1) female thread connection.
- The hose assembly must be as short as practicable and comply with the relevant requirements.
- The hose must not be kinked, subjected to abrasion or permanently deformed.
- The hose must not be near or in contact with any hot surfaces (e.g. base of metal hotplate, flue, or chassis of under counter oven etc.)
