General
Safety Procedures
1. The cooktop must be installed and/or repaired by
an authorized installer or servicer.
2. Never use the cooktop for warming or heating the
room.
3. Do not store items on the cooktop. Items stored on
the cooktop can become too hot and melt.
4. Wear proper apparel. Loose fitting or hanging
garments should never be worn while using
cooktop.
5. Do not repair or replace any part of the cooktop
yourself unless it is recommended in this manual.
6. Flammable materials should not be stored near
cooktop.
7. Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders
on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam.
Do not let a potholder touch an element. Do not
use a towel or a bulky cloth as a potholder.
Due to the nature of cooking, fires can occur as a
result of overcooking or excessive grease. Use the
following procedures to extinguish a fire in the
unlikely event one occurs.
Surface Element Fires
1. Do not turn on the vent hood. The fan can spread
the flames.
2. If it is safe to do so, turn the surface element to
OFF. Turn off main electrical supply.
3. Smother the fire with nonflammable lid or use a
Class “ABC” or “BC” fire extinguisher. Do not use
water on a grease fire.
Surface Cooking
1. Use the proper pan size. Select utensils with flat
bottoms large enough to cover the element.
Undersized utensils will expose the element to
direct contact with clothing.
2. Never leave surface units unattended. Boilovers
can cause smoking and may ignite.
3. To reduce risk of burns, ignition of flammable
materials or spillage due to unintentional contact,
utensil handles must be turned inward and not
extend over adjacent surface.
4. Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic,
ceramic, earthware, or other glazed utensils are
suitable for cooktop use. Unsuitable utensils may
break due to the sudden temperature change.
5. Clean cooktop with caution. To avoid steam burns,
do not use a wet sponge or cloth to wipe up spills
on a hot cooking area.
6. Do not place aluminum foil or foods packaged in
aluminum foil directly on element.

4. Route the edge of the cutout using a 3/4 inch
diameter router bit set 9/32 inches deep. Glue
reinforcing strips of solid surface material underneath
cutout perimeter. Allow strips to dry before installing
the cooktop. For island or peninsula installations, glue
reinforcing strips on all sides. For standard cabinet
installations, glue reinforcing strips just on the sides.
Standard countertops are supported in the front and
rear by the cabinets.
To avoid risk of property damage, the cutout
must be made by a professional cabinet
installer.
Inlay Kit Installation Instructions
1. Build jig for the cutout and router dimensions.
2. Set router guides to cut along solid line
corresponding to cooktop burner box size.
3. Use the carbide tipped router bit to make the cutout.
• 30” Cutout = 20-3/4” x 28-7/8”
• 30” Router = 21-5/8” x 29-3/4”
• 36” Cutout = 20-3/4” x 35-1/16”
• 36” Router = 21-5/8” x 35-15/16”

Installation Instructions
6. Apply foam tape to the underside of the cooktop
glass and flush with edge of the cooktop frame. The
foam tape prevents sealant from seeping between
the countertop and the underside of the cooktop.
Service problems may arise if foam tape is not
applied correctly.
7. Place metal reflective tape around the bottom inside
edge of the cooktop cutout. This applies only to solid
surface countertops.
8. Place cooktop in opening. The cooktop surface
should be 1/16 inches higher than countertop
surface. The 1/16 inch offset prevents hot cookware
from coming in contact with the countertop surface.
9. Align cooktop in opening. There should be 1/16 inch
clearance on all sides.
10. Using 3/4 inch masking tape, place a border around
the edge of the cutout. This prevents sealant from
sticking to the countertop.
11. Work in a well ventilated area when applying sealant.
Apply the provided sealant into the 1/16 inch opening
between the countertop and edge of cooktop, one
side at a time. The sealant will begin to form a skin
within 5 minutes. Wipe away excess sealant and
smooth with a spatula or wet finger. Use only the
sealant provided.
12. Do not touch sealant, move or use the cooktop for 24
hours. Protect the area from dust for at least 2 hours.
13. After 24 hours, clean up excess sealant on cooktop
with razor blade and on countertop with a spatula.
!

glazed utensils for cooking, although these
products are not recommended on glass top
cooktops. Sudden temperature changes may
break some utensils and easily scratch cooktop if
there are any imperfections in utensil bottom.
• Turn Utensil Handles Inward
A handle extending from the cooktop invites
accidents.
Do not use a wok with a ring stand. A wok with a ring
stand does not allow proper cooking. Use only a flat
bottom wok.
Flat Bottom Wok
Cooking Utensils
Utensils made of different materials react differently to
cooking temperatures. The best results occur by
matching cooking utensil and cooking style. The
following list describes the cooking characteristics of
various materials.
• Aluminum responds quickly to temperature changes.
It responds best for frying, braising and roasting.
• Cast iron responds slowly to temperature changes. It
responds best for long low heat cooking and pan
frying.
• Stainless steel combined with another metal such as
copper, responds better to temperature changes. Use
stainless steel for soups, sauces, vegetables and
general cooking.
• Copper, tin-lined utensils respond quickly to
temperature changes. It is excellent for gourmet
cooking, wine sauces and egg dishes.
• Utensil design is important. Select utensils with flat
bottoms, straight sides, handle weight that does not
tilt the pan, and pans that match the burner size. Do
not use pans that exceed the diameter of the burner.
The following should not be used with cooktops.
• Glass/ceramic responds slowly to temperature
changes. It responds best to long and slow heating of
liquids.
• Enamelware is stain resistant porcelain over metal.
The cooking time varies according to the base metal.
Lower temperatures are usually recommended.

AKE Unit Description
AKE model cooktops feature four solid, cast iron
elements. The heating coils beneath the elements are
embedded in a insulated material, which protects the
heating coils from damage and wear. This construction
increases the elements durability. These elements are
controlled by push-to turn control knobs that permit an
infinite number of settings.
Each element has a built-in temperature limiter. The
limiter prevents the surface temperature of an element
from rising above 880°F. This temperature limiter is
indicated by a red dot in the center of each element. The
element will not get red hot (a temperature of 1000°F is
needed for the element to glow), although the dots color
changes slightly when it is heated. A low surface
temperature decreases the risk of warping and/or
melting down cookware that has boiled dry.
NOTE: The red dot will fade over time as a result of use
and cleaning. This will not affect the
performance of the element.
The solid element has twice the surface area of a
conventional coil element and cooks by conduction
rather than radiant heat.

Troubleshooting Procedures
Power Supply
Infinite Switch Surface Controls
If no part of the cooktop operates or only part of it
operates, the cause may be a problem in the power
supply.
1. Verify supply circuit breakers or fuses are not tripped.
Check rating.
2. Disconnect power source. Check terminals at
terminal block for tightness.
3. Verify cooktop service wires are properly connected.
Be sure wires are in good condition. Check for
continuity with an ohmmeter.
Power Disconnected
All controls may be checked for continuity using the
schematic diagrams in this manual. When checking
continuity of suspected control contacts, disconnect
terminals to avoid false readings through other
components.
Internal Wiring
The bimetal heater burns open which causes the cycling
contacts to remain closed. The heating element would
be on full power at all control settings.
1. Disconnect power from cooktop. Disconnect wire
terminals from switch terminals H1 and H2.
2. Connect ohmmeter test leads to H1 and H2
terminals. The meter indicates no continuity if heater
is open. The heater resistance should be
approximately 15 KΩ.
The most common type of failures encountered with an
infinite switch are given in subsequent paragraphs.
Replace failed surface control.
1. Disconnect power from cooktop.
2. Place one ohmmeter lead at terminal block. Place
other lead at the line terminal of the non−functioning
parts control. Meter should indicate continuity.
Use the appropriate wiring diagram to repeat this
procedure from the output of the control to the next point
until each wire section is checked. Often a visual check
of the wiring will determine where a wiring fault is.
The internal switching may fail causing the element or
indicator light to be on constantly or not at all.
1. Disconnect power from cooktop.
2. Disconnect wire terminals from all switch terminals.
3. Test the small halogen ring by connecting ohmmeter
to L2 and H2. Set control to any setting. Meter should
indicate continuity. Turn control OFF. Meter should
indicate no continuity.
4. Test the large halogen by connecting ohmmeter
leads to L1 and H2. Turn control to OFF. Meter
should indicate no continuity.
Surface Control
Power Connection
1. Refer to schematic diagrams for assistance in testing
voltages in and out of control.
2. Connect a voltmeter to the element receptacle or the
terminals H1 and H2 of the surface control.
3. Turn control to LOW setting and allow it to cycle
approximately two minutes. Time the OFF and ON
cycle of the control and compare these to the
following table.

2. After cooktop cycles for one minute, take ON/OFF
readings over a five minute period to determine
whether the switch is cycling properly. If the switch is
not cycling properly with proper voltage applied,
replace the switch.
NOTE: If the switch is not supplied with proper voltage
(240 VAC), the cycling time will be affected. With
less than 240 VAC, the cycling time will be
longer. With more than 240 VAC, the cycling
times will be shorter.

Continuity Test
1. Remove all wires connected to the control.
2. Turn control to OFF. Check for continuity between
each contact (1−1a, 2−2a, 3−3a, ect.) except
contacts 7−7a. If continuity is found between any
contacts, the switch has failed and must be replaced.
3. There is a diode across contacts 7−7a. With the
control turned to OFF, check continuity across this
contact. Ohmmeter must be set at 10 KΩ setting to
check diode measurement. There should be no
continuity one direction and continuity the other
direction. If this indication is not obtained, switch has
failed and must be replaced.
