Installation Requirements
IMPORTANT NOTE: Installation of the induction or electric
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 and electric 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. For induction cooktops, if a
shelf is installed below the unit, a 1" (25) gap at the rear of
the shelf is necessary to allow for proper ventilation.
Clearance is required for the conduit located at the right
rear of induction and electric cooktops. Refer to the illustration below for dimensions.
11/4" (32)
2"
(51)

Conduit dimensions.
Failure to locate the cooktop without proper clearances
will result in a fire hazard.
It is recommended that you use a Wolf cooktop ventilation
hood, pro hood or hood liner with induction and electric
cooktops. Framed cooktops can accommodate a Wolf
downdraft ventilation system. Refer to the Wolf design
guide.

Multiple Cooktop Installation
Unframed Installations
IMPORTANT NOTE: Unframed induction and electric
cooktops are not designed to be installed in combination
with other cooktops.
Unframed induction and electric 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 12–13.
If the framed induction or electric 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 cutout width. Dimensions include the filler strip.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For models CT15I/S and CT15E/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. For local dealer information,
visit the find a showroom section of our website,
wolfappliance.com.

Flush mount installations are intended for granite, solid
surface or stone countertop surfaces only. Contact
with hot cookware may cause damage to countertop
surfaces that are not resistant to high heat.

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
Attach the foam strip to the underside of the cooktop
frame. Refer to the illustration. For unframed cooktops, be
sure to adhere the foam strip to the outer edge of the
glass-ceramic top, not the support frame.
COOKTOP FRAME
Gently lower the cooktop into the cut-out area in the
countertop and center. Check that the front edge of the
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. 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.
