After making the countertop cutout, some installations may
require notching down the base cabinet side walls to clear the
cooktop base. To avoid this modification,
use a base cabinet with
sidewalls wider than the cutout.
If cabinet has a drawer, a 4" (10.2 cm) depth clearance from the
countertop to the top of the drawer (or other obstruction)
in base
cabinet is required. The drawer depth may need to be shortened
to avoid interfering with the regulator.
