It is recommended that all electrical connections be made by a
licensed, qualified electrical installer.

Location Requirements

Make sure you have everything needed for correct installation. It
is the responsibility of the installer to comply with the installation
clearances specified in these instructions.
IMPORTANT: Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
When installing cooktop, use minimum dimensions given.
To eliminate the risk of burns or fire by reaching over the
heated surface units, cabinet storage space located above
the surface units should be avoided. If cabinet storage is to
be provided, the risk can be reduced by installing a range
hood that projects horizontally a minimum of 5" (12.7 cm)
beyond the bottom of the cabinets.
The cooktop must be a specified cooktop that is approved to
be installed either alone or over an undercounter built-in
oven. Check the cooktop base for an approved installation
label for your cooktop model number and approved
combinations of cooktops and ovens that can be installed. If
you do not find this label, your cooktop may not be approved
for use over an undercounter built-in oven. Contact your
dealer to confirm that your cooktop is approved.
Ovens approved for this type of installation will have an
approval label located on the top of the oven. If you do not
find this label, contact your dealer to confirm that your oven is
approved. Refer to oven manufacturer's Installation
Instructions for approval for built-in undercounter use and
proper cutout dimensions.


Marker or pencil
When installing cooktop over an undercounter built-in oven,
do not fasten cooktop to countertop with clamps. This will
make the cooktop easier to remove if future servicing
becomes necessary.
Use the countertop opening dimensions that are given with
these Installation Instructions. Given dimensions are
minimum clearances and provide 0" (0 cm) clearance.
Grounded electrical supply is required. See "Electrical
Requirements" section.
