2. Place cooktop in cutout.
NOTE: Make sure that the front edge of the cooktop is
parallel to the front edge of the countertop. If repositioning is
needed, lift entire cooktop up from cutout to avoid scratching
the countertop.
Style 2: Cooktop over cabinets
1. Determine whether your cabinet construction provides
clearance for installing clamp brackets at cooktop base ends.
This is the recommended location. Clamp brackets can be
installed on the front and back of cooktop base bottom, if
necessary.
