    2. Align holes in leg/caster mounting plate with pre-drilled holes in bottom of range located in each of the four corners.
    3. Attach mounting plate to bottom of range using four ¼ – 20 x ⅝“ self tapping screws (provided). If

casters are being installed, the locking casters should be mounted on the front.

    1. After all legs/casters have been installed, carefully return the range to its upright position. (For additional leg information, see Leveling section of this manual).

A permanently connected appliance mounted on casters and intended to be secured to the building structure should adhere to the following:

      1. Adequate means must be provided to limit the movement of the appliance without depending on or transmitting stress to the electrical conduit;
      2. The location(s) where restraining means are to be attached to the appliance needs to be on the outside rear parts of the oven chassis frame of the Range. Attachment points are available on the riser supports, including thru holes and tapping holes for #10-24 screws. Strap clamps are also optional and included with caster accessory kits for attachment to the rear oven wall (screws not provided).
      3. ould

If the range is installed on casters and is moved for any reason, it is recommended that the range be re-leveled front to back and side to side for even baking.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS

ELECTRICAL AND GROUNDING CONNECTIONS MUST COMPLY WITH THE APPLICABLE PORTIONS OF THE NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE AND/OR OTHER LOCAL ELECTRICAL CODES.

DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL POWER SUPPLY AND PLACE A TAG AT THE DISCONNECT SWITCH TO INDICATE THAT YOU ARE WORKING ON THE CIRCUIT.

Position the range in its final location. Bring conduit containing the proper supply wire to the range through the knockout located on the bottom of the range. Select the size and type of field wire in accordance with the National Electrical Code suitable for carrying the equipment’s rated amps and voltage. Use field wires suitable for 75°C on units carrying more than 80 amps.

If you have purchased an EV48, EV60 OR EV72 model, it will have two (2) electrical connections. The left and the right portions of the range are supplied with individual branch circuits, the connection points are found under each oven or in the right hand side control panel.

THE 48, 60 AND 72 INCH UNITS HAVE MORE THAN ONE SOURCE OF ELECTRICAL SUPPLY. EACH SOURCE MUST BE CONNECTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE NATIONAL ELECTRIC CODE (LATEST EDITION) OR OTHER LOCAL CODES.

Connect supply leads to field terminal block and green grounding lead to the labeled ground lug. The supply wire should be anchored through the access hole with a bulkhead fitting.

Ranges ship wired for 3-phase service but may be changed to 1-phase, in the field. Refer to the wiring diagram and schematic decal attached to the range for necessary alterations.

LEVELING

Place a carpenter’s level on top of the range and level the range front-to-back and side-to-side by turning the adjustable feet.

  6. Going across the width of the Range install the next screw, as shown in Figure 2, set the alignment and tighten screw completely.
  7. Install the remaining screws and tighten all screws completely.

OPERATION

THE RANGE AND ITS PARTS ARE HOT. BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN OPERATING, CLEANING OR SERVICING THE RANGE.

Model EV36 Shown Fig. 6

Element Controls — Infinite load switches that control and maintain heat to the surface plates. The controls are arranged in pairs; the left knob controls the front plate and the right knob controls the rear plate. NOTE: On 480 volt units, French plates are controlled with a 3-heat switch (HIGH = 2000 watts, MED = 1000 watts, LOW = 500 watts).

Hot Top Switch — (Not shown.) A thermostat (1-10) controls and maintains heat to the top section.

Select desired heat level, (1 is minimum, 10 is maximum).

Griddle Thermostat — (Not shown.) Regulates the amount of heat needed to maintain the set temperature. Each 12″ (305 mm) section of the griddle has its own thermostat with a temperature range of 200°F (93°C) to 550°F (288°C).

Griddle Indicator Light — (Not shown.) Will be lit until the selected temperature is reached or when it is being maintained.

Oven Thermostat — Regulates the amount of heat needed to control and maintain oven temperature around the desired set temperature. The temperature range is from 200°F (93°C) to 550°F (288°C). Turn dial counterclockwise to increase temperature and clockwise to decrease temperature.

Infinite Switch for Oven — Provides control for top browning element. Adjust as needed for the amount

Top Heating Element of top heat required in order to brown product as desired. NOTE: Infinite switch not available on 480 volt units. This position on the panel will be filled with a panel plug.

Oven Indicator Light — Will be lit until the selected temperature is reached or when it is being maintained.

BEFORE FIRST USE

Cleaning

Clean the range and all accessories with water and a mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry with a soft clean cloth.

Griddle Seasoning

Before leaving the factory the griddle is coated with vegetable oil as a rust inhibitor. Remove this film when the griddle plate is being cleaned prior to its first cooking use. Heat the griddle to 200-300°F to loosen and melt the coating, then clean the surface with a non-corrosive, grease dissolving commercial cleaner, following the manufacturer’s directions. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry with a soft clean cloth.

A new griddle surface must be seasoned. The metal surface of the griddle is porous. Food tends to get trapped in these pores and stick; therefore, it is important to “season” or “fill up” these pores with cooking oil before cooking. Seasoning gives the surface a slick, hard finish from which the food will release easily.

To season, heat griddle top section at a low setting. Pour one ounce of cooking oil per square foot of surface over the griddle top section. With an insulated cloth, spread the oil over the entire griddle surface to create a thin film. Wipe off any excess oil with an insulated cloth.

Repeat this procedure 2 to 3 times until the griddle has a slick surface.

FRENCH PLATES

French plates are most efficient when used with utensils having a maximum inside diameter of 10″ (254)

or a minimum inside diameter of 9″ (229). Stock pots of 9, 12 and 16 qt. capacities are recommended for bulk cooking. (Fig. 7)

It is important that the utensil used has a flat bottom that sits uniformly on the surface of the plate. Utensils with curved bottoms (either through design or warped from use) will have poor contact and therefore poor heat transfer. This will result in poor cooking performance.

Fig. 7

The French (solid surface) Plates are rated for 2000 Watts and are controlled by an infinite heat switch. A French (solid surface) Plate will reach cooking temperature from room temperature in 5 to 7 minutes at a HI switch setting.

Each control knob is marked HI, MED, LO, MED-LO, and VERY-LO. The HI setting is full heat. Use the HI setting to start cooking quickly and to bring water to a boil.

Some DO’S and DO NOT’S of Surface Cooking

DO use utensils to fit the tops (9″ to 10″ [229 to 254 mm] inside diameter).

DO use flat-bottomed, straight-sided pots and pans.

DO use covers for stock pot work. Water will boil much sooner and much less heat is required for cooking in a covered container. Less water may be used, thereby retaining vitamins and minerals in the food.

DO turn off plates a few minutes before cooking is completed to use the heat stored in the plate.

DO NOT allow surface plates to idle unloaded at HI switch settings. The surface plates will reach very high temperatures, and this can cause the casting to warp or dome. Plates idled at a setting of MED-LO and turned to HI when loaded, will perform bulk cooking jobs just as rapidly, without damage to the plates. Damage caused by plates left running unloaded on HI will void the warranty.

HOT TOPS

Hot Tops can make up for the irregularity of stock pots that have an inside diameter of over 10”. Pots can overlap from one Hot Top section to another without any loss of heating area.

It is important that the utensil used has a flat bottom that sits uniformly on the surface of the hot top plate. Utensils with curved bottoms (either through design or warped from use) will have poor contact and therefore poor heat transfer. This will result in poor cooking performance.

The Hot Top section is rated for 2500 Watts and are controlled by snap action thermostatic controller, with knob indicator marks from 0 to 10 (with 10 being the highest temperature setting). A Hot Top section will reach cooking temperature from room temperature in 15 to 20 minutes at a 10 thermostat setting.

Some DO’S of Hot Top Cooking

DO use flat-bottomed, straight-sided pots and pans.

DO use covers for stock pot work. Water will boil much sooner and much less heat is required for cooking in a covered container. Less water may be used, thereby retaining vitamins and minerals in the food.

GRIDDLE

See BEFORE FIRST USE in this manual for griddle seasoning procedure.

This griddle plate is steel, but the surface is relatively soft and can be scored or dented by the careless use of a spatula or scraper. Be careful not to dent, scratch, or gouge the plate surface. Do not try to knock off loose food that may be on the spatula by tapping the corner edge of the spatula on the griddle surface.

Griddles are supplied with one 3400 watt heating element per 12” of griddle surface. Each heating element is

individually controlled by a thermostat with a range of 200°F to 550°F (93°C to 288°C).

OVEN

Never cover the oven deck or rack with aluminum foil. The oven will not operate properly and the range may be damaged.

Model EV24S, EV36S and EV48S ranges have a single oven; Model EV48SS, EV60SS AND EV72SS ranges have two separate ovens. Each oven is equipped with top and bottom heating elements. The top element has an infinite heat switch for browning. THIS IS NOT A BROILER ELEMENT. (infinite switch is not available on the 480 volt range for the top element)

The oven has an input of 5000 W., 3750 W. for the bottom element and 1250 W. for the top element.

Preheating

Thoroughly preheat the oven by setting the switch and the thermostat to the desired temperature. When the red light goes out, the oven is ready for use. For full loads and delicate baked products, it may be desirable to allow the oven to cycle (red light on and off) a second time before loading.

Baking

Most products can be baked with the top element infinite switch set between VERY LO and LO. Hard-to-brown products, such as corn bread or biscuits, may require a top switch setting of MED to HI. Start off by using a LO setting on top element and then increase only as needed.

Roasting

Place meat on a rack in an open pan with sides sufficiently high to retain the drippings. Roasting may be done on the oven rack or the deck. For best results, roast at the low temperatures of 200°F (93°C) to 325°F (163°C) recommended by the Department of Agriculture and the American Meat Institute. Most meats may be roasted with the infinite heat switch set at HI. If heavy browning on poultry is not desired, the switch should be set between MED-LO and VERY-LO.

The top oven element is not suitable for broiling, and will not operate independent of the oven thermostat (bottom element).

POWER OUTAGE

If a power outage occurs, the range will automatically shut down. When power is restored, the range will automatically resume normal functions. If the range is left unattended during the power outage, turn all control knobs/switches OFF. When power is restored, turn desired control knobs/switches back ON. The unit will be

preheated in 5 minutes and normal cooking operations can be resumed.

CLEANING

DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL POWER SUPPLY BEFORE CLEANING.

DO NOT use Dawn ® dish detergent to clean the exterior or interior components of the range.

DO NOT use scouring powder. It is extremely difficult to remove completely. It can build up accumulations that will damage the range.

DO NOT use cleaning products containing TSC.

Clean all parts of the range and the oven with a soft cloth and warm water and detergent. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry with a soft clean cloth.

Griddle

Scrape the griddle with an approved scraper after each use. The griddle grease can should be emptied on a routine basis. A weep hole is provided to indicate that the grease can is near full capacity. Failure to empty the grease can will cause it to overflow and may result in damage to the range. Weekly, or more often if necessary, thoroughly clean the griddle surface. You may use a griddle screen or stone with a little grease, rubbing with the grain of the metal while it is still warm, or use water and detergent with a steel brush. The detergent must be thoroughly removed. After each thorough cleaning, the griddle must be re-seasoned (see BEFORE FIRST USE in this manual).

Avoid build-up of caked grease under the drip edge and around the outside edges of the griddle.

If the griddle is to be shut down for an extended period, put a heavy coat of grease over the griddle plate.

Oven

Clean oven and oven door daily, especially if fruit pies or tomato sauces were baked, meats roasted, and if there have been spillovers. Failure to clean spills may result in corrosion of metal components.

If the oven liners and decks are heavily soiled, ammonia or oven cleaner may be used to remove spillage of burned on sugar and grease, but must be thoroughly rinsed with water to prevent corrosion.

After processing some foods at low temperatures, odors may linger in the oven. These odors may be cleared by setting the thermostat at 500°F (260°C) and allowing the oven to operate unloaded for 30 to 45 minutes.

MAINTENANCE

THE RANGE AND ITS PARTS ARE HOT. BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN OPERATING, CLEANING OR SERVICING THE RANGE.

Disconnect power supply and follow lockout / tagout procedures before cleaning and servicing the appliance.
