Installation Requirements
IMPORTANT NOTE: Installation of the induction cooktop
must meet location requirements shown in the installation
illustration for your specific model on the following pages.
All dimensions listed are minimum requirements for safe
operation.
Wolf induction cooktops are intended for indoor use. For
ease of installation, Wolf recommends using 33" (838)
wide cabinets with 30" (762) cooktops and 39" (991)
cabinets with 36" (914) cooktops. They are designed to fit
a standard 24" (610) deep base cabinet with a 25" (635)
deep countertop. Before making the countertop cut-out,
verify that the cooktop will clear the side walls of the base
cabinet.
A minimum height clearance of 6 1/4" (159) is required from
the top of the countertop to any combustible surface
directly below the cooktop. If a shelf is installed below the
unit, a 1" (25) gap at the rear of the cabinet shelf is necessary to allow for proper ventilation.
Clearance is required for the terminal block located at the
right rear of the cooktop. Refer to the illustration below for
dimensions.
Failure to locate the cooktop without proper clearances
will result in a fire hazard.

Unframed Installations
IMPORTANT NOTE: Unframed induction cooktops are not
designed to be installed in combination with other
cooktops.
Unframed induction cooktops can be mounted flush with
the top of the countertop or as a frameless installation
with the glass-ceramic top mounted on top of the countertop surface. In either installation the countertop cut-out
dimensions are the same. If the cooktop is to be mounted
flush with the countertop, a recessed area surrounding the
countertop cut-out must be provided. Refer to the installation illustrations on pages 10–11.
If the framed induction cooktop is to be used with any
combination of additional cooktops or modules with a filler
strip, the dimensions provided in the chart below are
derived by adding 11/4" (32) additional space for each
additional unit, to give you the total countertop cut-out
width. Dimensions include the filler strip.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For model CT15I/S, the cut-out width
should be increased from 13 3/8" (340) to 14" (356) when
installed with multiple cooktops.
When multiple cooktops are installed side by side, each
unit must have its own separate recommended electrical
circuit.
When two or more modules are installed together, an
integrated module filler strip is recommended. If a 30"
(762) downdraft ventilation system is also installed, an
integrated module support for downdraft ventilation is also
required.
The filler strip and other accessories are available through
your authorized Wolf dealer. To obtain local dealer information, visit the find a showroom section of our website,
wolfappliance.com.

Unframed Installations
FLUSH MOUNT INSTALLATION—OPTION 1
FLUSH MOUNT INSTALLATION—OPTION 2
For this flush mount installation, a recessed area
surrounding the standard countertop cut-out is required.
Fabrication of the recessed area must take place before
the final countertop installation. A template of the countertop cut-out is provided with the unframed cooktop for
fabrication purposes.
For this flush mount installation, the countertop cut-out
will be the same size as the outer edge of the glassceramic top. It is recommended that unframed cooktop
itself be used as the template for the cut-out. Turn the
cooktop over and mark the opening using the glassceramic top as a template.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This option is not recommended for
molded backsplash style countertops.
It will be necessary to attach L-shaped cleats to the inner
perimeter of the countertop cut-out to support the
unframed cooktop. The top edge of the cleat can be no
wider than 7/8" (22) and will be attached 5/16" (8) below the
surface of the countertop. Refer to the illustration below.
Attach the cleats wherever enough countertop material is
present.
In order to rout the required recessed area for this flush
mount installation, a second template must be made from
1/2" (13) plywood. The template will be used as a guide for
a top-bearing router bit.
Make the wood template wide enough so that clamps
used to hold the template to the countertop do not interfere with the router base. The cut-out dimension of the
wood template should match the outer perimeter of the
template supplied with the cooktop.
Center the wood template over the existing cut-out in the
countertop and clamp. Use double-sided tape to adhere
the template to the countertop to keep the template from
shifting during routing. Make sure that the adhesive can
be easily removed by testing it on a scrap piece of the
countertop. Using a top-bearing router bit with the wood
template as a guide, rout out a 5/16" (8) deep recessed
area in the countertop cut-out.
For additional support in the cut-out area, adhere scrap
countertop material to the bottom side of the countertop.
Consult your countertop supplier for the proper methods
of attachment.

Install the Cooktop
Verify Cooktop Operation
Attach the foam strip to the underside of the cooktop
frame. Refer to the illustration below. For unframed
cooktops, be sure to adhere the foam strip to the outer
edge of the glass-ceramic top, not the support frame.
Before operating the induction cooktop, be sure to read
the entire use & care guide included with the cooktop for
important safety, operating and warranty information.
Gently lower the unit into the cut-out area in the countertop and center. Check that the front edge of cooktop is
parallel to the front edge of the countertop. Check that all
required clearances are met.
Attach the brackets to the bottom of the cooktop, as
shown in the illustration below. Install clamping screws
into the brackets and tighten until the screws contact the
underside of the countertop. Do not overtighten screws.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not seal the cooktop to the countertop. It must be removed if service is necessary.
Clean the glass-ceramic surface as recommended in the
induction cooktops use & care guide. The cooktop surface
must be free of any foreign substances, especially those
that could melt and permanently adhere to the glassceramic.
Turn on the electrical supply to the cooktop. Check operation of the controls and verify that each of the induction
elements is coming up to temperature.
IMPORTANT NOTE: A small amount of smoke and odor
may be noticed during the initial break-in period.
Do not operate the cooktop if the glass-ceramic surface
is broken. Call a Wolf authorized service center.
