Hide thumbs




• For Personal Safety, remove house fuse or open
circuit breaker before beginning installation. Failure
to do so could result in serious injury or death.
• Be sure your cooktop is installed properly by a
qualified installer or service technician.
• To eliminate the risk of burns or fire due to reaching
over heated surface elements, cabinet storage
located above the surface units should be avoided.
If cabinet storage space is to be provided, the risk
can be reduced by installing a range hood that
projects horizontally a minimum of 5" beyond the
bottom of the cabinets. Cabinet installation above
the cooktop may be no deeper than 13".
• Make sure the cabinets and wall coverings around
the cooktop can withstand the temperatures (up to
200°F) generated by the cooktop.
• The cooktop should be easy to reach and lighted
with natural light during the day.
• Always disconnect the electrical service to the
cooktop before repairing or servicing the cooktop.
This can be done by disconnecting the fuse or
circuit breaker. Failure to do this could result in a
dangerous or fatal shock. Know where your main
disconnect switch is located. If you do not know,
have your electrician show you.
Installation Instructions


This appliance must be supplied with the proper
voltage and frequency, and connected to an individual,
properly grounded branch circuit, protected by a circuit
breaker or a time delay fuse as noted on name plate
and the chart below.
We recommend you have the electrical wiring and
hookup of your cooktop connected by a qualified
electrician. After installation, have the electrician show
you where your main cooktop disconnect is located.
Wiring must conform to National Electrical Code. You
can get a copy of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/
NFPA No. 70-Latest Edition, by writing to:
National Fire Protection Association

The cooktop conduit wiring is approved for copper
wire connection only, and if you have aluminum house
wiring, you must use special UL approved connectors
for joining copper to aluminum.
You must use a two-wire, three conductor 208/240
VAC, 60 Hertz electrical system. A white (neutral)
wire is not needed for this unit. The cooktop must be
installed in a circuit that does not exceed 125 VAC
nominal to ground.
