The bench cutout should be made as per cutout
dimensions in Table 2 and Figure 6.
Adjacent walls, cupboards and protection for
combustible materials: Ensure that the appliance
is installed in accordance with AS/NZS 5601.1,
or AS/NZS 5601.2 with regard to clearances to
combustible surfaces and materials, and clearances
to rangehoods and exhaust fans.
To ensure clearances of 200mm from burners to
vertical combustible surfaces observe the minimum
distance requirements shown in Figure 7.
Clearances to combustible surfaces may be reduced
if combustible surfaces are protected in accordance
with AS/NZS 5601.1, or AS/NZS 5601.2.
Barrier: A barrier must be installed to prevent
accidental contact with the cooktop base, where the
base of the cooktop is accessible from below (i.e.
Inside a cupboard, etc.). An impression has been
incorporated into the base to ensure a minimum
clearance of 15mm is maintained between the base
and the barrier. This barrier may be made of any non-
combustible, rigid material.
Note: An alternative to the above is to purchase a
barrier shield from Electrolux spare parts (P/No. ACC
072) which can be fitted directly to the underside
of the product. This shield protects the user from
accidently touching certain areas of the product.
Barrier protection is not necessary if the product
is installed above an underbench oven or similar
appliance and/or if the cupboard construction is such
that the underside of the cooktop is not accessible.
For Ceramic Glass models a FOAM SEAL has
been provided and is to be applied along the
perimeter of the hob.
For Stainless Steel models MASTIC TAPE has been
provided and is to be placed around the bench
cutout as specified in Figure 8. Take care to ensure
that the seals meet without overlapping.
Fit the pull down clamps supplied to ensure that the
cooktop cannot move after installation.
On Stainless Steel models remove any excess seal
visible after installation.
Failure to fix the cooktop to the bench could result in
loosening of the gas connection through movement of the
cooktop and a gas leak may result.
Four clamps and screws are supplied with 4-burner
models and six clamps and screws are supplied with
5-burner models. Fit the clamps as shown in Figure 8. No
clamps are needed for model EHG313BD as it is fitted with
spring clips on the sides which locate on the inner edge of
the bench cutout.
When benchtops are less than 33mm in thickness, it may
be necessary to fit a spacer between the benchtop and
each clamp to ensure clamps can be tightened sufficiently.
