8 electrolux e:line gas cooktops installation
1. The bench cutout should be made as per cutout
dimensions in Table 2 and Figure 6.
2. Adjacent walls, cupboards and protection for
combustible materials: Ensure that the appliance is
installed with Section 5.12.1 of AS 5601 (Australia) or
Section 14.1 of NZS 5261 (New Zealand), regarding
clearances to combustible surfaces and materials, and
clearance to rangehoods and exhaust fans.
To ensure clearances of 200mm from burners to vertical
combustible surfaces observe the dimensions shown in
Clearances to combustible materials may be reduced if
combustible surfaces are protected in accordance with
clause 188.8.131.52 of AS 5601 (Australia) or section 14.1.2
of NZS 5261 (New Zealand).
3. optional barrier: A barrier can be installed to prevent
accidental contact with the cooktop base, where the
base of the cooktop is accessible from below (ie inside
a cupboard, etc). An impression has been incorporated
into the base to ensure a minimum clearance of 15mm is
maintained between the base and the barrier. This barrier
may be made of any non-combustible, rigid material.
4. A FOAM SEAL has been provided and is to be applied
along the perimeter of the hob.
5. Fit the pull down clamps supplied to ensure that the
cooktop cannot move after installation.
Failure to fix the cooktop to the bench could result in
loosening of the gas connection through movement of the
cooktop and a gas leak may result.
Four clamps and screws are supplied with 4-burner models
and six clamps and screws are supplied with 5-burner
models. Fit the clamps as shown in Figure 8. The clamp
location points are shown in Figure 9.
For flush fit installation or when benchtops are less than
33mm in thickness, it will be necessary to fit a spacer
between the benchtop and each clamp to ensure clamps
can be tightened sufficiently.

Important note: All cut-outs in the benchtop area are to
be carried out at a specialist workshop.
The cut must be clean and precise, since the cut edge is
visible on the benchtop surface. The stability of furniture
being worked on must be ensured following the cut-outs.
Use special heat and water resistant benchtops (e.g.
natural stone or tiled). See figures 6b and 8b for cutting
Place the hob into the cut-out and align it, ensuring the
gaps around the edges between the hob and the benchtop
are even on all sides. Fit clamps as shown in figure 8 at the
location points shown in figure 9.
Check the function and location of the hob.
Fill the gaps between the hob and benchtop with a suitable
commercial silicone sealant in a colour of your choice.
Use of an unsuitable silicone sealant on natural stone
benchtops can cause permanent discolouration.
Before the silicone sealant starts to form a skin, moisten
a blade or your finger with a soapy solution and smooth
it over. The hob should only be used once the silicone
sealant has hardened. Do not use foam seal in this
