Free-Standing Electric Ranges
TOOLS YOU WILL NEED:
REMOVE PACKAGING MATERIALS:
Failure to remove packaging materials could result in damage
to the appliance. Remove all packing parts from oven, racks,
heating elements and drawer. Also, remove protective film
and labels on the outer door, cooktop and backguard.
NOTE: Cut the orange shipping ties from the power cord,
being careful not to damage the cord.

FOR YOUR SAFETY:
If you did not receive an anti-tip bracket with your purchase, call
1.800.561.3344 to receive one at no cost. For installation instructions
of the bracket, visit: www.geappliances.ca.
Before beginning the installation,
switch power off at service panel and lock the service disconnecting means
to prevent power from being switched on accidentally. When the service
disconnecting means cannot be locked, securely fasten a prominent warning
device, such as a tag, to the service panel.

NOTE: Use a 1.2 m (4') power cord to prevent interference with
the storage drawer. Power cords 1.4 to 1.8 m (4
⁄2' to 6') long
may have to be dressed to allow for proper drawer closing.
MINIMUM DIMENSIONS BETWEEN
COOKTOP, WALLS AND ABOVE
A. The range must be placed with
12 mm (1⁄2") minimum clearance
at the back wall and side walls of
the cabinet. Make sure the wall
covering, countertop, flooring
and cabinets around the range
can withstand the heat (up to
93.3 ˚C/200˚F) generated
by the range.
B. Allow 76.2 cm (30") minimum
clearance between surface units
and bottom of unprotected wood
or metal cabinet, or allow a 60 cm (24") minimum when
bottom of wood or metal cabinet is protected by no less than
0.6 cm (1/4") thick flame retardant millboard covered with not
less than No 28 MSG sheet metal (.015"), .015" thick
stainless steel, .024" aluminum or .020" copper.
C. A 15.2 cm (6") spacing to surfaces less than 38.1 cm (15")
above the cooktop is recommended to reduce exposure
to steam, grease splatter and heat.
To reduce the risk of burns or fire when reaching over hot
surface elements, cabinet storage space above the cooktop
should be avoided. If cabinet storage space is to be provided
above the cooktop, the risk can be reduced by installing a
range hood that projects at least 12.7 cm (5") beyond the front
of the cabinets. Cabinets installed above the cooktop must be
no deeper than 33 cm (13").
Flooring under the range
Your range, like many other household items, is heavy and
can settle into soft floor coverings such as cushioned vinyl
When moving the range on this type of flooring, it should be
installed on a 6 mm (1/4") thick sheet of plywood (or similar
material) as follows:
When the floor covering ends at the front of the range, the area
that the range will rest on should be built up with plywood to
the same level or higher than the floor covering. This will allow
the range to be moved for cleaning or servicing.
LEVEL THE RANGE
WARNING: Never completely remove the leveling leg
as the range will not be secured to the anti-tip device properly.
MODELS WITHOUT BAKING OR WARMING DRAWERS
A. Install the oven racks in the oven and position the range
where it will be installed.
B. Check for levelness by placing a spirit
level or a cup, partially filled with water,
on one of the oven racks. If using
a spirit level, take two readings—with
the level placed diagonally first in
one direction and then the other.
C. Remove the storage drawer, broiler drawer or kick panel.
The front leveling legs can be adjusted from the bottom
and the rear legs can be adjusted from the top.
D. Use an open-end or adjustable wrench to adjust
the leveling legs until the range is level.
E. Replace the drawer or panel.
MODELS WITH BAKING OR WARMING DRAWERS
A. Plug in the range.
B. Measure the height of your countertop
at the rear of the opening (X).
C. Adjust two rear leveling legs so that
the rear of cooktop is at the same height
as the counter (Y).
D. Slide unit into place.
E. Install oven racks in the oven and position the range where
it will be installed.
F. Check for levelness by placing a spirit level on one
of the oven racks. Take two readings—with the level
placed diagonally first in one direction and then the other.
G. Adjust front leveling legs until the range is level.
MODEL AND SERIAL NUMBER LOCATION
The rating plate is located above the drawer on the oven
frame or on the side of the drawer frame.
FINAL INSTALLATION CHECKLIST
• Check to make sure the circuit breaker is closed (RESET)
or the circuit fuses are replaced.
• Be sure power is in service to the building.
Note (on some models): If the clock flashes “bAd” and then
“LinE” with a loud tone, the neutral connection to the range is
miswired. Check the terminal block connections and/or house
wiring to correct.
• Check to be sure that all packing materials and tape have
been removed. This will include tape on metal panel under
control knobs (if applicable), adhesive tape, wire ties,
cardboard and protective plastic. Failure to remove these
materials could result in damage to the appliance once the
appliance has been turned on and surfaces have heated.
• Check to make sure that the door and drawer are parallel
to each other and that both operate smoothly. If they do not,
see the Owner’s Manual for proper replacement.
• Check to make sure that the rear leveling leg is fully
inserted into the Anti-Tip bracket and that the bracket
is securely installed.
• Turn on one of the surface units to observe that the element
glows within 60 seconds. Turn the unit off when glow is
detected. If the glow is not detected within the time limit,
recheck the range wiring connections. If change is required,
retest again. If no change is required, have building wiring
checked for proper connections and voltage.
• Check to make sure the Clock (on models so equipped) display
is energized. If a series of horizontal red lines appear in the
display, disconnect power immediately. Recheck the range
wiring connections. If change is made to connections, retest
again. If no change is required, have building wiring checked
for proper connections and voltage. It is recommended that
the clock be changed if the red lines appear.
• Be sure all range controls are in the OFF position before
leaving the range.

ANTI-TIP DEVICE INSTALLATION
To reduce the risk of
tipping the range, the
range must be secured by
a properly installed anti-tip
bracket. See installation
instructions shipped with
the bracket for complete
details before attempting
To check if the bracket
is installed and engaged
properly, remove the storage drawer or kick panel and look underneath
the range to see that the leveling leg is engaged in the bracket. On
models without a storage drawer or kick panel, carefully tip the range
forward. The bracket should stop the range within 4 inches. If it does
not, the bracket must be reinstalled. If the range is pulled from the
wall for any reason, always repeat this procedure to verify the range
is properly secured by the anti-tip bracket. Never completely remove
the leveling legs or the range will not be secured to the anti-tip
