Thanks to Owner-Manuals.com! This manual was exactly what I needed. As Amana was purchased by Maytag and later by Whirlpool, there was no way to receive it from their websites. I was lucky to find this resource.
Good quality instructions manual. Very useful to me. Quick and excellent service from Owner-Manuals... Thanks !!!

The supply pipe should preferably be of copper. If any other material is used, it must be of a type approved for use with continuously operating bottled- gas appliances, and have threaded compression connections throughout. PUSH-ON CONNECTIONS MUST NOT BE USED (We
230 V Supplies
Check that the voltage stated on the data plate is the same as the mains voltage in use (230 V). Electrical leads must be routed and secured so that they cannot come into contact with hot or sharp parts of the refrigerator.
do not approve the use of "rubber" type flexible tubing for connecting permanently operating appliances of this type in the United Kingdom). All connectors etc. should be of a type specifically designed for the type and diameter of the connection pipe used, and screwed joints should be sealed with a joining compound approved for use with bottled gas. The gas supply pipe should be connected to the gas inlet pipe on the right hand side of the gas control valve by means of a suitable threaded compression coupling. In making the connection to the refrigerator, a gas cock of an approved type for use LPG must be incorporated in the supply line in a position which is readily accessible to the user. For eventual servicing purposes, the union should be on the outlet side of the cock and the pipework should be positioned so as not to prevent the refrigerator from being readily withdrawn.
12 V Supplies
Connect the refrigerator to the vehicle battery by a direct cable. To avoid a voltage drop, the cross sectional area of the connecting cable between battery and refrigerator must be at least 2.5 mm2 if the distance is less than 9 meters, and at least 4 mm2 if the distance is more than 9 meters. To ensure satisfactory operation, the positive lead must be fitted with a fuse rated at max. 16 A. To prevent the refrigerator from draining the battery, make sure that the current supplied to the caravan is cut off when the vehicle engine is not running, for example by fitting an ignition control relay. Diagramme for the mains installation: fig. 9 Diagramme for the 12 V installation: fig. 10 (RM 4200/10) The notations in the wiring diagramme are: A. Electronic igniter/reigniter B. Electrode (at burner) C. 12 V heating element D. Switch for 12 V operation E. Switch for reigniter (gas op.) F. Electric thermostat G. Heating element, 230 V H. Switch for 230 V operation J. Terminal block L. Terminal block
The electrical installation must be carried out in a proper and durable manner, taking into account all relevant regulations and codes of practice. For mains voltage operation, it is important that the circuit to and in the caravan is effectively earthed. ALL MAINS VOLTAGE WIRING IN THE CARAVAN MUST BE INSTALLED IN ACCORDANCE WITH CURRENT I.E.E. REGULATIONS INCLUDING THE USE OF AN OUTLET AND COUPLER TO BS4343/-CEE17. For connection to a 230 V electricity supply, the refrigerator has a 3-core mains lead which is intended for connection to a properly earthed plug and socket outlet or fused spur. IMPORTANT: The wires in the mains lead of this appliance are coloured in accordance with the following code: GREEN-AND-YELLOW = EARTH BLUE = NEUTRAL BROWN = LIVE As the colours of the wires may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, in the United Kingdom, proceed as follows: The wire which is coloured GREEN-AND-YELLOW must be connected to the terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter E or by the earth symbolor coloured green or green-and-yellow. The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black. The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red. WARNING! THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED! In the United Kingdom, the plug or circuit to the refrigerator must be fitted with a fuse not greater than 5 amps. If a 13 amp.(B.S.1363) fused plug is used, it should be fitted with a 3 amp. fuse. In other countries, the fuse rating will depend upon the voltage and local practice.
12 V supply of reigniter (RM 4201/11)
Fig.12 /13 shows the wiring diagramme of the refrigerator as delivered. The 12 V supply enters at (L). The reigniter (A) is fed via two wires (1) and (2) at terminal block (L) (RM 4211). It is advisable to feed the reigniter and the lighting from a separate 12 V source. To do this: remove the wires (1) and (2) and connect the supply as is shown in fig. 11. The reigniter should not be connected directly to a battery charger but only over a battery.
