INSTALLATION For your protection, we recommend that a qualified electrician install this appliance. The electrician should be familiar with electrical installations and your local electrical requirements. The external wiring should be in conduit or an approved type of flexible cable and of suitable size to carry the load. The supply circuit should be properly fused and equipped with a means of disconnecting as required by local electrical code. The body of the hot plate should be grounded (Do not ground to a gas supply pipe). The connections are made in this unit at the pigtail leads located in the junction box on the back of the unit. To gain access to the pigtail leads remove cover on junction box. LOCATE THE UNIT Do not install the unit closer than 1 inch from a side wall and/or closer than 1 inch from a rear wall. LEVELING UNIT Level unit by adjusting the (4) feet for accurate and perfect line up with other Star-Max series units. DO NOT INSTALL WITHOUT FEET. CAUTION USE ONLY FLAT BOTTOM PANS AND POTS! DO NOT USE RAISED BOTTOM UTENSILS OR BUCKETS! GOOD HEAT TRANSFER DEPENDS UPON GOOD CONTACT BETWEEN THE ELEMENT AND POT. CAUTION NOTE: Using a 12” diameter or larger pan/pot may cause damage to the element or internal wiring. Such damages are not covered by warranty. Two (2) heating elements are used. For the 502FF each element draws 2,600 Watts on 240 Volts and 1,950 Watts on 208 Volts. For the 502CF element draws 2,100 Watts on 240 Volts and 1,575 Watts on 208 Volts. Each element is controlled by an infinite position switch. The right control knob controls the rear cooking element and the left control knob controls the front cooking element. On “HI” the element delivers uninterrupted full heat. Between “LO” and “5” any desired amount of heat can be obtained between 6% and 60% of full heat. Signal lights are provided above the control knobs to give a visual check if either one or both heating units are turned on. CLEANING The exterior surfaces can be kept clean and attractive by regularly wiping with a clean soft cloth. Any discoloration can be removed with a non-abrasive cleaner. For models 502D and 502DS, the heating elements may be raised for access to the drip pans, which may be removed for cleaning and the bottom pan may be removed by sliding pan forward. REPLACEMENT OF INFINITE CONTROL BE SURE POWER IS DISCONNECTED BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO SERVICE UNIT. 1. Pull control knobs on front panel forward to remove. 2. Remove 8 screws from front panel and tilt front panel forwards. 3. Remove the nut that mounts the inoperative control and pull the control to the side. 4. Remove one wire at a time from the inoperative control and connect at the same terminal on the new control. Carefully check to see that proper wires have been connected to the terminals of the control. See attached wiring diagram. 5. Assemble new control to the front panel.
