PREPARATION , oring Under the Range Your range , like so many other household items , is heavy and can settle into soft floor coverings such as cushioned vinyl or carpeting . When moving the range on this type of flooring , it should be installed on a 1 / 4 - inch - thick sheet of plywood ( or similar material ) as follows : When thefloor covering emis 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 . Leveling the Range Use a 1 N " open - end or adjustable wrench to equally back out the four legs . The flanges ( rims ) below the sides of the cooktop must be raised above the top of the countertop . Carefully slide the range into its installation space . Observe that it is clearing the countertop . Then place a spirit level or a glass measuring cup partially filled with water on one of the oven shelves to check for levelness . If using a spirit level , take two readings , with the level placed diagonally first in one direction and then the other . just the four legs carefully . Level the range front to L , ackand side to side . The range legs must rest on the fl _ x _ r . The range must not hang from the countertop . How to Remove Packaging Tape To assure no damage is done to the finish of the prtnluct , the safest way to remove adhesive left from packaging tape on new appliances is an application of a household liquid dishwashing detergent , mineral oil or ctx _ king oil . Apply with a soft cloth and allow to soak . Wipe dry and then apply an appliance polish to thoroughly clean and protect the surface . NOTE : The plastic tape must be removed from the chrome trim on range parts . It cannot be removed if it is baked on . Removing Packing Materials Check your range to insure all packaging materials and protective tape covering are removed from areas such as ' the door trim , cooktop frame , under burner caps , end caps , etc . before using . 7
