IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Electrical
Requirements
For Your Safety
• For Personal Safety remove house fuse or
open circuit breaker before beginning
installation. Failure to do so could result in
serious injury or death.
• Be sure your cooktop is installed properly
by a qualified installer or service technician.
• To eliminate the risk of burns or fire due to
reaching over heated surface elements,
cabinet storage located above the surface
units should be avoided. If cabinet storage
space 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. Cabinet
installation above the cooktop may be no
deeper than 13”.
• Make sure the cabinets and wall coverings
around the cooktop can withstand the
temperatures (up to 200°F.) generated by
the cooktop.
• The cooktop should be easy to reach and
lighted with natural light during the day.
• Always disconnect the electrical service to
the cooktop before repairing or servicing
the cooktop. This can be done by
disconnecting the fuse or circuit breaker.
Failure to do this could result in a
dangerous or fatal shock. Know where your
main disconnect switch is located. If you do
not know, have your electrician show you.
This appliance must be supplied with the
proper voltage and frequency, and
connected to an individual, properly
grounded branch circuit, protected by a
circuit breaker or a time delay fuse as
noted on rating plate.
We recommend you have the electrical
wiring and hookup of your cooktop
connected by a qualified electrician. After
installation, have the electrician show you
where your main range disconnect is
located.
Wiring must conform to National Electrical
Code. You can get a copy of the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-Latest
Edition, by writing:
National Fire Protection Association
Battery March Park
Quincy, MA 02269
The cooktop conduit wiring is approved for
copper wire connection only. If you have
aluminum house wiring, you must use
special UL approved connectors for joining
copper to aluminum.
You must use a two-wire, three conductor
208/240 VAC, 60 Hertz electrical system. A
white (neutral) wire is not needed for this
unit. The cooktop must be installed in a
circuit that does not exceed 125 VAC
nominal to ground.
Refer to the rating plate on your cooktop for
the KW rating for your cooktop.

Installation Instructions
Pre-Test Checklist
Remove all protective film if present,
and any stickers.
Check level of appliance.
Check to be sure that all wiring is
secure and not pinched or in
contact with moving parts.
Check that the cooktop is properly
grounded.
Operation Checklist
Remove all items from the top of
the cooktop surface.
NOTE: ALUMINUM WIRING
A. WARNING:
IMPROPER CONNECTION OF
ALUMINUM HOUSE WIRING TO THE
COPPER LEADS CAN RESULT IN A
SERIOUS PROBLEM.
Turn on the power to the cooktop.
(Refer to your Use and Care
Manual.) Verify all surface
bruners opate properly.
Check that the circuit breaker is
not tripped or the house fuse is
blown.
B. Splice copper wires to aluminum
wiring using special connectors
designed and UL approved for joining
copper to aluminum and follow the
manufacturer’s recommended
connector procedure closely.
Check that conduit is securely
connected to the junction box.
See Use & Care manual for
troubleshooting list.
NOTE:Wire used, location and enclosure
of splices, etc., must conform to good
wiring practice and local codes.
NOTE TO ELECTRICIAN:
The power leads supplied with
this appliance are UL
recognized for connections to
larger gauge household wiring.
The insulation of these leads is
rated at temperatures much
higher than the temperature
rating of household wiring. The
current carrying capacity of a
conductor is governed by the
wire gauge and also the
temperature rating of the
insulation around the wire.
