NOTE: Do not use caulking compound; cooktop should
be removable for service when needed.
Do not remove the nylon spacers on the
edges of the cooktop. These spacers center the cooktop
in the space provided. The cooktop must be centered
to prevent excess heat buildup that may result in heat
damage or fi re (see Figure 10).
