IMPORTANT: If installing a range hood or microwave hood
combination above the cooktop, follow the range hood or microwave
hood combination installation instructions for dimensional clearances
above the cooktop surface.
Before You Make the Electrical Connection:
To properly install your cooktop, you must determine the type of electrical
connection you will be using and follow the instructions provided for it here.
● A 3-wire or 4-wire, single phase, 120/240 volt, 60-Hz., AC only electrical
supply is required on a separate, 40-amp circuit fused on both sides of the
line. The model/serial number rating plate is located on the metal cabinet
underneath the cooktop. See the following illustration.

A. Model/serial number plate
The cooktop is rated 120/240 volt. Most models have a neutral (white) wire.
Model W5CE3024 does not have a neutral (white) wire.
● The cooktop should be connected directly to the junction box through
flexible, armored or nonmetallic sheathed, copper cable. The flexible, armored
cable extending from the fuse box or circuit breaker box should be connected
directly to the junction box.
● 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
becomes necessary in the future.
● Do not cut the conduit. Use the length of conduit provided.
● A UL listed or CSA approved conduit connector must be provided at each end
of the power supply cable (at the cooktop and at the junction box). A listed
conduit connector is already provided at the cooktop.
● If the house has aluminum wiring, follow the procedure below:
1. Connect a section of solid copper wire to the pigtail leads.
2. Connect the aluminum wiring to the added section of copper wire using
special connectors and/or tools designed and UL listed for joining copper
to aluminum.
Follow the electrical connector manufacturer's recommended
procedure. Aluminum/copper connection must conform with local
codes and industry accepted wiring practices.
