    Whirlpool w11432244 Front Control Electric Freestanding Range Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 26Tip-Over Hazard
    A child or adult can tip the range and be killed.
    Install anti-tip bracket to floor or wall per installation instructions.
    Slide range back so the rear range foot is engaged in the slot of the anti-tip bracket.
    Re-engage the anti-tip bracket if the range is moved.
    Do not operate the range without an anti-tip bracket installed and engaged.
    Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or serious burns to children and adults.

  2. Measure the distance from the top of the counter to the floor.
  3. Measure the distance from the top of the cooktop to the bottom of the leveling legs. This distance should be the same.
    If it is not, adjust the leveling legs to the correct height. The leveling legs can be loosened to add up to a maximum of 1″ (2.5 cm). A minimum of 3/16″ (5 mm) is needed to engage the anti-tip bracket.
    NOTE: If height adjustment is made when the range is standing, tilt the range back to adjust the front legs, and then tilt forward to adjust the rear legs.
  4. When the range is at the correct height, check that there is adequate clearance under the range for the anti-tip bracket.
    Before sliding the range into its final location, check that the anti-tip bracket will slide under the range and onto the rear leveling leg prior to anti-tip bracket installation.
    NOTE: If a Trim Kit will be used, the top of the cooktop should be higher than the counter. See the Installation Instructions included with the Trim Kit for the correct height.

Level Range

  1. Place level on the oven bottom, as indicated in one of the two figures below, depending on the size of the level. Check with the level side to side and front to back.
    Whirlpool w11432244 Front Control Electric Freestanding Range Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 27
  2. If the range is not level, use a wrench or pliers to adjust leveling of legs up or down until the range is level.
