Important Safety Instructions
These cooktops have been design-certified by the
American Gas Association. As with any appliance
using gas and generating heat, there are certain
safety precautions that must be followed.
The cooktop must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes or, in their absence,
with National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No. 70 –
Latest Edition.
Installation of cooktop must conform with local
codes or, in their absence, with National Fuel Gas
Code ANSI Z223.1 – Latest Edition.
The cooktop itself is not equipped with a gas
shutoff valve. When installed correctly, a shutoff
valve will be in the main gas supply line "down-
stream" of the appliance pressure regulator.
Disconnect the electrical supply before servicing.
Wall coverings, countertops, and cabinets should
be able to withstand 200°F heat generated by the
cooktop.
Avoid placing cabinets above the cooktop.
If cabinets are placed above the cooktop, use
cabinets no more than 13 in. deep and allow a
minimum clearance of 30 in. between the cooking
surface and the bottom(s) of unprotected
cabinet(s).
If a 30-in. clearance between cooking surface and
overhead combustible material or metal cabinets
can not be maintained, protect the underside of
cabinets above cooktop with insulating millboard
at least 1/4-in. or gypsum board at least 3/16-in.
thick, covered with 28-gauge sheet steel or 0.020
in. thick copper.
Clearance between the cooking surface and
protected cabinets must never be less than 24 in.
Exception: Installation of a listed microwave oven
or cooking appliance over the cooktop shall
conform to the installation instructions packed with
the appliance.
Vertical distance from the plane of the cooking
surface to the bottom of adjacent overhead
cabinets extending closer than 1 in. to the plane of
the cooktop sides must not be less than 18 in.
Adjacent cabinets should be at least 8 in. from the
side of the cooktop.
