Safety Information
As with all appliances, there are certain rules to follow
for safe operation. Verify everyone who operates the
cooktop is familiar with the operations and with these
precautions.
Use appliance only for its intended purpose as
described. Pay close attention to the safety sections of
this manual.
Recognize the safety section by looking for the symbol
or the word safety.
Recognize this symbol as a safety precaution.
!
!
WARNING
General
1. The cooktop must be installed and/or repaired by an
authorized installer or servicer.
2. Never use the cooktop for warming or heating the
room.
3. Do not store items on the cooktop. Items stored on
the cooktop can become too hot and melt.
4. Wear proper apparel. Loose fitting or hanging
garments should never be worn while using
cooktop.
5. Do not repair or replace any part of the cooktop
yourself unless it is recommended in this manual.
6. Flammable materials should not be stored near
cooktop.
7. Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders
on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do
not let a potholder touch an element. Do not use a
towel or a bulky cloth as a potholder.
!
WARNING
Surface Cooking
1. Use the proper pan size. Select utensils with flat
bottoms large enough to cover the element.
Undersized utensils will expose the element to direct
contact with clothing.
2. Never leave surface units unattended. Boilovers can
cause smoking and may ignite.
3. To reduce risk of burns, ignition of flammable
materials or spillage due to unintentional contact,
utensil handles must be turned inward and not
extend over adjacent surface.
4. Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic,
earthware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for
cooktop use. Unsuitable utensils may break due to
the sudden temperature change.
5. Clean cooktop with caution. To avoid steam burns,
do not use a wet sponge or cloth to wipe up spills on
a hot cooking area.

Safety Procedures
!
WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock, property damage,
personal injury or death; verify wiring is correct, if
components were replaced. Verify proper and
complete operation of unit after servicing.
Due to the nature of cooking, fires can occur as a
result of overcooking or excessive grease. Although a
fire is unlikely, if one occurs proceed as follows:
Surface Element Fires
1. Do not turn on the vent hood. The fan can spread
the flames.
2. If it is safe to do so, turn the surface element to
OFF. Turn off main electrical supply.
3. Smother the fire with nonflammable lid or use a
Class “ABC” or “BC” fire extinguisher. Do not use
water on a grease fire.

Safety Information
Safety Practices for Servicer
Electrical Requirements
Safe and satisfactory operation of electric cooktops
depends upon its design and proper installation.
However, there is one more area of safety to be
considered:
220-volt, 60 Hertz, individual circuit which is properly
grounded, polarized and protected by a circuit breaker
or fuse.
Installing the electric cooktop in compliance with local
electrical building codes results in proper operation and
consumer satisfaction with the cooktop.
The neutral of this unit is grounded to the frame through
the solid copper grounding wire. If local conditions do
not permit grounding of the neutral, untwist or
disconnect the solid copper wire and connect the soild
copper wire to ground in accordance with local codes.
Connect the white neutral to the service neutral.
Receiving Cooktop
Electrical Connection
Before Installing
• Inspect cooktop thoroughly at time of delivery.
• Immediately report any visible damage to carrier.
• Damage not discovered until after accepting delivery
can still be claimed by using a concealed damage
report form, available from the carrier’s agent.
All shipments, i.e., complete cooktop or parts, are
shipped at the buyer’s risk. Maytag responsibility ends
when the consignment is accepted by the carrier in
“good order.” Maytag supports damage claims by
supplying invoices, bills of loading and other
documentation as needed. Providing this assistance,
however, does not imply any responsibility for settling
claims.
• Do not deduct claims for loss or damage from the
invoice and do not withhold payment pending
adjustment of claims.
• Do not return any units or parts for credit without
written consent.
All wire connections must be in accordance with local
codes. Use National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No.
70-Latest Edition in the absence of local codes.
A three-wire, single phase, 120/240 VAC 60 Hz, electric
system (properly circuit protected to meet local Codes of
NFPA No. 70) must be provided. The chart below
recommends the minimum circuit protector and wire
size if the appliance is the only unit on the circuit. If
smaller sizes of wire is used, the efficiency will be
reduced and a fire hazard may be created. It is
advisable that the elctrical wiring and hookup be
completed by a certified electrian.

Component Testing Procedures
!
WARNING
To avoid electrical shock, personal injury, or death: disconnect power supply before servicing, unless testing
requires it.
Power Supply
If no part of the cooktop operates or only part of it
operates, the cause may be a problem in the power
supply.
1. Verify supply circuit breakers or fuses are not tripped.
Check rating.
2. Disconnect power source. Check terminals at
terminal block for tightness.
3. Verify cooktop service wires are properly connected.
Be sure wires are in good condition. Check for proper
voltage with a voltmeter.
Internal Wiring
1. Disconnect power from cooktop.
2. Place one ohmmeter lead at the terminal block.
Place the other lead at the line terminal of the
non−functioning part. Meter should indicate
continuity.
Use the appropriate wiring diagram to repeat this
procedure from the output of the control to the next point
until each wire section is checked. Often a visual check
of the wiring will determine where a wiring fault is.
Indicator Light
1. If the surface unit operates normally but the indicator
lights do not glow, check for voltage at the indicator
light terminals.
2. If voltage is present at the indicator terminals and the
indicator does not glow, replace the indicator light.
3. If no voltage is present at the terminals, check for
loose connections or broken wiring.
3. Turn control to LOW setting and allow it to cycle

Installation Instructions
Installing Cabinetry Over Your Cooktop
Electrical Wiring Information
A = 30" (76.2 cm) minimum clearance between the top of
the cooktop and the bottom of an unprotected wood or
metal cabinet.
The neutral of this unit is grounded to the frame through
the solid copper grounding wire. If used on new branchcircuit installations (1996 NEC), mobile homes,
recreational vehicles, or in an area where local codes
prohibit grounding through the neutral conductor, untwist
or disconnect the solid copper wire and connect the
ground wire to ground in accordance with local code.
Connect the white neutral to the service neutral. Connect
all wires to the branch circuit with approved connectors.
Use copper or aluminum wire. If aluminum wire is used,
use connectors recognized for joining aluminum to
copper.
A = 24" (60.96 cm) minimum when bottom of wood or
metal cabinet is protected by not less than 1/4" (0.635
cm). FLAME RETARDANT millboard covered with not
less than no. 28 MSG sheet steel, 0.015" (0.038 cm)
stainless steel, 0.024" (0.061 cm) aluminum or copper.
* To eliminate the risk of burns or fire by reaching over
heated surface units, cabinet storage space located
above the surface units should be avoided. If cabinet
storage is to be provided, the risk can be reduced by
installing a range hood that projects horizontally a
minimum of 5 inches beyond the bottom of the
cabinets.
Proper Electrical Supply
You must provide an adequate electrical supply system
as required for your cooktop. All wire connections must be
in accordance with local codes and properly insulated.
Check with local utility for governing electrical codes and
ordinances. In the absence of local electrical codes, the
National Electrical Code, NFPA No. 70, governing electric
range installations must be followed.
A copy of the National Electrical Code, NFPA No. 70, can
be obtained by writing to:
A*
National Fire Protection Association
Batterymarch Park
Quincy, Massachusetts 02269
Important Installation Suggestions
1. Chamfer all exposed edges of decorative laminate to
prevent damage from chipping.
2. Radius corners of cutout and file to insure smooth
edges and prevent corner cracking.
3. Rough edges, inside corners which have not been
rounded and forced fits can contribute to cracking of
the countertop laminate.
4. Countertop must be supported within 3" (7.62 cm) of
cutout.
!
CAUTION
Warranty is void on equipment installed other than as
recommended by manufacturer.
A–2
A three-wire, single phase, A.C. 120/240 volt 60 cycle
electrical system (properly circuit protected to meet Local
Codes of NFPA No. 70) must be provided. Unit must be
properly grounded in accordance with local wiring code.
The chart below recommends the minimum circuit
protector and wire size if the appliance is the only unit on
the circuit. If smaller sizes of wire are used, the unit
efficiency will be reduced and a fire hazard may be
created. It is advisable that the electrical wiring and
hookup be accomplished by a competent electrician.
