Installation Tips

A few tips to extend the life of your stove.

Grounding Rod
A properly installed grounding system that will protect people from electrical shock, help safeguard expensive electronic equipment, prevent electrolysis, limit neutral-to-ground voltage and satisfy the NEC along the way.

Electrolysis of water is the decomposition of water (H2O) into oxygen (O2) and hydrogen gas (H2) due to an electric current being passed through the water.

Use only a 4GA wire or larger wire with proper grounding clips. Grind paint away were attached to stove to get a solid electrical connection.

GFI Outlet or GFI Breaker
It is recommended that use use a GFI outlet or GFI breaker on the stove. This will protect the electronics and prolong the life of the stove.

Grease the Solenoid
At least once a week grease the solenoid. As with any maintenance around the electrical, we recommend disconnecting the power first. We recommend using a Di-Electric grease on the solenoid shaft to prevent rusting and allow free movement of the solenoid. A regular grease will also work if needed. This will extend the life of the solenoid.
