I purchased a gas range (https://www.haierappliances.com/appliance/specs/hcr2250ads) and its electrical requirements are 208/240V;60Hz. How can I safely plug this into a standard US 120v wall outlet? I am ok with the electric system of the range being a little "dim" or less powerful. I just want to make sure that it is not dangerous to do so.

This is not safe to use 120v when the range calls for 220.  If you did this, the range could cause a short and cause a fire.  Please use the 220 as the range is called for.

If you do not have a 220 plug, you will have to hook one up to your breaker box and run the wire from the box to an outlet where your range is.
