Electrical requirements

If codes permit and a separate ground wire is
used, it is recommended that a qualified
electrician determine that the ground path is
adequate.
Do Not ground to a gas pipe.
Check with a qualified electrician if you are
not sure the cooktop is properly grounded.
Do Not have a fuse in the neutral or ground
circuit.
IMPORTANT:
Save Installation Instructions for electrical
inspector's use.
A.
A three-wire or four-wire, single phase,
240-volt, 60-Hz, AC-only electrical supply is
required on a separate, 40-ampere circuit, fused
on both sides of the line. A time-delay fuse or
circuit breaker is recommended. The fuse size
must not exceed the circuit rating of the
appliance specified on the model/serial rating
plate located on the bottom of the cooktop.
B.
THE COOKTOP MUST BE
CONNECTED WITH COPPER WIRE ONLY.
C.
Wire sizes and connections must conform
to the requirements of the National Electrical
Code ANSI/NFPA 70 – latest edition **, or CSA
Standards C22.1-94, Canadian Electrical Code,
Part 1 and C22.2 No. 0-M91 - latest edition ***
and all local codes and ordinances.
D.
The cooktop should be connected directly
to the fused disconnect or circuit breaker box
through flexible, armored or non-metallic
sheathed, copper cable. The flexible, armored
cable extending from the fuse box or circuit
breaker box should be connected directly to the
junction box.
E.
Locate the junction box to allow as much
slack as possible between the junction box and
the cooktop so that the cooktop can be moved if
servicing is ever necessary. Do Not cut the
conduit.
F.
A U.L.- or C.S.A.-listed conduit connector
must be provided at each end of the power
supply cable (at the cooktop and at the junction
box).
