STEP #3
Countertop Preparation
Please read this section prior to making cutout for cook top.
It is important to plan ahead for installation of the cook top, keeping the following
dimensions in mind. (Please refer to Figure A.)
A - 13 inches maximum depth of overhead
cabinets
B - 36 inches is minimum height of
countertop above floor
C - The minimum flat countertop surface that
the cook top will rest upon must be equal
to or greater than the overall cook top
dimensions (refer to the following page for
overall cook top dimensions).
D - 30 inches minimum clearance between
the top of the cooking surface and the
bottom of an unprotected wood or metal
cabinet or 24 inches minimum clearance
when the bottom of wood or metal cabinet
is protected by not less than 1/4 - inch
thick flame retardant millboard covered
with not less than No. 28 MSG sheet
Fig. A
steel, 0.015-inch-thick stainless steel,
0.024-inch-thick aluminum or 0.020-inch-thick copper.
E - 1-inch minimum from backsplash of countertop to edge of glass (refer to the
following page for overall cook top dimensions).
Do Not Install Closer Than 1/2 Inch (12 mm) from Any Adjacent Surface.
!
Warning: To eliminate the risk of burns by reaching
over heated surface units, avoid having cabinet
storage space located above surface units. If cabinet
storage is to be provided, the risk can be reduced by
installing a range hood that projects horizontally a
minimum of 5" beyond the bottom of the cabinets.
Page 6
Before making the countertop cutout, check for clearance. Check to see if the
cook top will clear the front and side walls of the base cabinet. It is also
important to provide enough ventilation.
Adequate ventilation of the space
below the countertop must be provided
to ensure proper operation of the cook
top. Heat transferred from the cook
top bottom pan during operation will
overheat an improperly ventilated area.
Fig. B
Allow a 2" minimum clearance between the bottom of the metal pan of the cook
top and any combustible surface located below, i.e.: the upper edge of a drawer
installed below the cook top (see Figure B). Failure to provide proper clearances
and ventilation may result in a fire hazard.
Cook top dimensions and countertop cutout dimensions are shown in Figure C.
Fig. C
Note: When making the countertop, radius the corners of the cutout (1/4" radius
is typical). This will prevent cracking of the countertop. Follow the
countertop manufacturer's instructions regarding the minimum corner
radius and reinforcement of corners.

STEP #4
Installing the Cook Top (Figure D below)
There are two mounting brackets supplied with the glass ceramic cook top.
These brackets are designed to hold the cook top firmly in place. The cook top
does not have a metal frame and should be bedded to the countertop using a
soft bedding compound that will prevent damage if later removal for service is
necessary. We recommend a very small bead of silicone sealant.
Attach the two mounting brackets supplied with the cook top (as shown below) to
the inside vertical surface of the cutout. The brackets are to be mounted on
opposing sides. Center the bracket in the opening, flush with the countertop, and
secure with long self-tapping screws that are provided. Position the cook top in
the cutout opening and press firmly on all sides to seal the frame into the bedding
compound. Secure the cook top to the brackets from underneath with the small
sheet metal screws that are supplied.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVERTIGHTEN THE SCREWS.

STEP #5
Electrical Connection
Before proceeding further, verify that the power supply is disconnected. Verify
that the appropriate electrical supply requirements have been met. Please refer
to the table on page 4 for appropriate electrical requirements. The cook top is
supplied with a 48-inch long conduit for a connection to an accessible junction
box. The conduit consists of three insulated wires. There is a hot lead conductor
(black insulated-tinned copper), one insulated ground conductor (green
insulated-tinned copper) and a neutral conductor (white insulated-tinned copper).
Attach conductor wires to residence wiring in accordance with national, state and
local electric codes.
!
Warning – Grounding
The entire appliance must be grounded at all times
when the electrical power supply is on. Do not
ground the appliance with the neutral house supply
wire (white). A separate ground must be used.
STEP #6
Final Preparations Prior to Use
Remove the plastic film from the cook top. Clean the cook top before you use it
for the first time. A thorough cleaning with a recommended cook top cleaner
(Cerama Brite Ceramic Cook Top Cleaner) will provide a clean, shiny coating on
the cook top surface.
The next section of the manual covers cook top use, maintenance, safety and
service information.
Please keep these instructions with your cook top for future reference.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Read this section BEFORE operating the cook top.
The cook top, like all appliances, has the potential to create safety
problems through careless and improper use. Please observe all of
the following safety precautions.

Proper Installation
Be sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified
technician.

Never use your appliance for warming or heating the room.

Do not leave children alone.
Children should never be left alone or unattended in the area where the
appliance is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part
of the appliance. Do not store items of interest to a child in cabinets above
cook top. Children climbing on the cook top to reach such items could be
seriously injured.

Wear proper clothing/apparel.
Loose-fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while using the
appliance.

USER SERVICING
Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance. If service ever becomes
necessary, this appliance should be serviced by AUTHORIZED
PERSONNEL ONLY or call SUMMIT Customer Service at 1-800-932-4267.

Keep flammable materials away from cook top.

Do not store plastic material (such as plastic utensils) in storage areas
beneath cook top.
Plastic items with low melting temperatures should not be stored under, over
or near the cook top.

Do not soak removable heating elements.
Heating elements should never be immersed in water.

Do not use water on grease fires.
Smother fire or flame or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.

Use only dry potholders.
Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam.
Do not let potholder touch the heating elements on the appliance. Do not
use a towel or other bulky cloth in place of a potholder.
Page 10

Do not cook on broken cook top.
If cook top should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the
broken cook top and create a risk of electric shock. Immediately contact an
authorized service center or call SUMMIT Customer Service at 1-800-9324267.

Clean cook top with caution.
If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking surface, be
careful to avoid steam burns. Some cleaners produce noxious fumes if
applied to a hot surface. Read the cleaner label for details prior to using.

DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS
The heating elements on the cook top may be hot even if they are dark in
color. These areas may be hot enough to cause burns. Never touch heating
elements until they have had sufficient time to cool. Likewise, never allow
clothing or flammable materials to come in contact with heating elements or
cook top surfaces until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces
of the appliance may become hot enough to cause burns.

Use proper pan size.
This appliance is equipped with two 6"-diameter surface units. Select
utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit heating
element. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the heating
element to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper
relationship of utensil to burner will also improve efficiency.

Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat Settings.
Boil-over causes smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.

Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not Extend Over
Adjacent Surface Units.
To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due
to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a utensil should be
positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent
surface units.
Please keep these instructions with your cook top for future reference.
DO NOT DISCARD

Operation
READ SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE OPERATING YOUR APPLIANCE.
The cooking surface areas of your glass ceramic cook top are identified by
permanent patterns in the cook top. The appliance is easy to maintain and easy
to clean. Keeping the cook top at top performance can be achieved by following
the simple guidelines for use and cleaning below:
Cookware
Chances are that your existing cookware will work just fine with your glass
ceramic cook top. Cooking on a glass ceramic cook top does not require special
pots or pans. Since cookware plays an important role in cooking efficiency and
convenience, keep in mind the following information when selecting your
cookware.
The cookware should have a flat bottom. Although glass and other types of
cookware can be used, metal cookware with thick, smooth, flat bottoms will
generally conduct the heat well. Aluminum and stainless steel cookware usually
works best. Avoid cookware with shaped and rounded bottoms as well as
utensils that warp when heated.
Use cookware of the correct diameter only. The base of the pot or pan should be
about as wide as the cooking zone on which it is used – not much wider or much
narrower. By using utensils with the correct diameter, you should achieve
maximum heating efficiency with the shortest possible boiling times.
Be certain that both the cook top panel and the bottom of your pots and pans are
clean and dry before use. By doing so, you will help prevent scratches and
stains.
Heating Elements
This cook top contains ribbon-type, radiant heating elements. The radiant
elements will “light up” about 4-5 seconds after being turned on. The special
design of these elements directs the heat up through the ceramic glass, providing
efficient cooking. Temperature limiters are included in each element to ensure
that the safe operating temperature of the ceramic glass top is not exceeded.
The temperature limiter will cycle the radiant element off to prevent exceeding
the maximum safe surface temperature.
Page 12
Knobs & Indicator Lights
The cooking area controls are known as “infinite” controls. This type of control
has an infinite selection of heat settings. The control settings begin at low and
increase heat output by cycling the heating elements between “off” and full power
as you turn the knob clockwise. The heating elements will stay at full power for
longer periods and at zero power for shorter periods as you turn the knob
clockwise, thus controlling the heat output.
There are a series of lights that provide indications of burner operation and hot
surfaces. These lights are located adjacent to the control knobs. When the
control is in the “on” position, a red light is lit indicating which burner is on.
For your safety, we have incorporated a “HOT” indicator light. When lit, this light
indicates that some part of the glass ceramic cook top is too warm to touch or
place articles upon. Do not place articles other than cookware on the cooking
surface while this light is glowing.
Cleaning
To help ensure that your cook top stays clean, follow these easy-care tips:
 Clean the cook top before you use it for the first time. A thorough cleaning with
our recommended cook top cleaner (Cerama Brite Ceramic Cook Top
Cleaner) will provide a coating on the cook top prior to its first use. A sample
is included with your cook top.
 Always remove food spills, grease spatters and metal rub-off from cookware.
A razor blade scraper or the equivalent works well to remove spillovers.
 Clean the cook top with a paper towel or a clean, soft cloth and a
recommended cleaner. After cleaning, always wipe the cook top with a clean,
damp cloth to avoid cooked-on cleaner residue. Wipe the cook top dry.
 Do not use a dish towel or sponge to wipe off the cook top. A film may be left
by the detergent and may cause discoloration of the cook top surface.
 Avoid abrasive scouring cleaners of any kind. Also avoid using plastic, nylon
or metal cleaning pads. They may scratch or melt onto the cook top.
 Avoid chemical cleaners such as chlorine bleach, ammonia, hydrofluoric acid
or chemical oven cleaners. They can etch or discolor the surface.
 Do not let anything that melts – plastic, aluminum foil, sugar, etc., come into
contact with the cook top surface when it is hot. Should something melt onto
the surface, immediately move it to a cool area of the cook top with a razor
blade scraper and then remove it from the cook top as soon as possible.
