The ground wire in the conduit is connected to the
cooktop frame. Effective January 1, 1996, the National
Electrical Code will not permit grounding through neutral.
If used in new construction after January 1, 1996 or in a
mobile home, recreational vehicle or if local codes do not
permit grounding through the neutral white lead, attach
the appliance grounding lead (green or copper) to the
residence grounding conductor (green or bare copper)
in accordance with local codes. When connecting to a 3
A Remove all protective film, if present, and any
B Check to be sure that all wiring is secure and not
pinched or in contact with moving parts.
C Check level of appliance.
D Check that the cooktop is properly grounded.
A Remove all items from the top of the cooktop
B Turn on the power to the cooktop (refer to your
Owner's Manual). Verify that all surface burners
C Check that the circuit breaker is not tripped nor
the house fuse blown.
D Check that conduit is securely connected to the
conductor branch circuit, if local codes permit, connect
the ground connector lead of the cooktop to the branch
circuit neutral (gray or white in color).
If the cooktop is being installed into a
blind counter (one with no cabinet opening below), wire
connections must be made before putting the cooktop
into the cutout opening.
NOTE TO ELECTRICIAN: The power leads
supplied with this appliance are UL recognized for
connections to larger gauge household wiring. The
insulation of these leads is rated at temperatures
much higher than the temperature rating of
household wiring. The current carrying capacity
of a conductor is governed by the wire gauge
and also the temperature rating of the insulation
around the wire.
NOTE: ALUMINUM WIRING
IMPROPER CONNECTION OF
ALUMINUM HOUSE WIRING TO THE COPPER
LEADS CAN RESULT IN AN ELECTRICAL
HAZARD OR FIRE.
B. Splice copper wires to aluminum wiring using
special connectors designed and UL approved
for joining copper to aluminum, and follow
the manufacturer's recommended connector
NOTE: Wire used, location and enclosure of
splices, etc., must conform to good wiring
practice and local codes.
