Installation instructions

  • Read these instructions carefully before installing or using this product.
  • Please make this information available to the person responsible for installing the product as it could reduce your installation costs.
  • In order to avoid a hazard, this appliance must be installed according to these instructions for installation.

This cooktop has been designed and constructed in accordance with the following codes and specifications:

AS/NZS 60335-1 General Requirements for Domestic electrical appliances
AS/NZS 60335-2-6 Particular Requirements for Domestic electrical cooking appliances
AS/NZS 1044 Electromagnetic Compatibility Requirements.


Product dimensions and clearances

The installation shall comply with the dimensions in Figs. 1 and 2, bearing in mind the following requirements:

  • A minimum clearance of 40 mm for CE302 models and 30 mm for CE604 models has to be kept between the bottom of the cooktop and the top of an underbench appliance or a thermal protection barrier (see Figs. 5-7).
  • Overhead clearances - In no case shall the clearance between the highest part of the cooktop and a range hood be less than 600 mm. Any other downward-facing combustible surface less than 600 mm above the highest part of the cooktop shall be protected for the full width and depth of the cooking surface area in accordance with local regulations in force. However, in no case shall this clearance to any surface be less than 450 mm.
  • Side clearances - Where the distance from the periphery of the nearest hotplate to any vertical combustible surface is less than 50 mm (CE302 models) or 100 mm (CE604 models), the surface shall be protected in accordance with with local regulations in force to a height of not less than 150 mm above the cooktop for the full dimension (width or depth) of the cooking surface area.

One side of the cooktop must always be kept clear.

  • Protection of combustible surfaces - The required protection shall ensure that the surface temperature of combustible surfaces does not exceed 50 °C above ambient.
  • To comply with this requirement satisfactorily, fix 5mm-thick ceramic tiles to the surface or attach fire-resistant material to the surface and cover with sheet metal (minimum thickness 0.4 mm).

The underside surface of the cooktop can reach a temperature exceeding 95 °C during normal use.

 Installing a thermal protection barrier

If the cooktop is installed over drawers or cupboards and its underside surface thus becomes accessible after installation, a thermal protection barrier must be fitted at least 40 mm (for CE302 models) or 30 mm (for CE604 models) beneath the base of the cooktop (see Figs. 5 and 6). This barrier must be made of low thermal conductivity material installed according to the instructions for installation.

  • The requirement above is not applicable if the cooktop is installed directly above an oven.
  • For access to the cooktop for servicing or installation, ensure that the barrier can be removed from beneath.
  • A gap of 20 mm may be allowed at the rear of the barrier (see Fig.7) for electrical connection and ventilation.

Fastening the installation brackets

  • Each cooktop is provided with an installation kit including brackets and screws for fastening the cooktop to benches from 20 to 40 mm thick.
  • CE302 models are provided with four F type brackets.
  • CE604 models are provided with two R type brackets (for the rear of the cooktop) and two F type brackets (for the front of the cooktop).
  1. Create a cutout according to the dimensions in Fig.3 or Fig.4.
  2. Stretch gasket “D” (Figs. 10 and 11) over the edge of the cutout, being careful to overlay the junction edges.
  3. Turn the cooktop upside down, place it on a soft surface and fasten the brackets F and R to the appropriate socket holes, without tightening the screws B for the moment. Make sure that the tabs are mounted correctly, as shown. Rotate the tabs so that the cooktop can be put into the cutout.
  4. Put the cooktop into the cutout and position it correctly.
  5. Put the brackets F and R into place; tooth A of the brackets should go into the hole (Figs. 10 and 11).
  6. Tighten screws B until the cooktop is completely secured to the bench.
  7. Using a sharp cutter or trimmer knife, trim the excess sealing material around the edge of the cooktop. Take care not to damage the workbench.

Electrical requirements

  • The appliance must be connected to the mains electricity supply checking that the voltage corresponds to the value given in the rating plate and that the power supply cable sections can withstand the load specified on the plate.
  • Power supply cable and plug are NOT supplied with the appliance. A suitable cable has to be connected as shown in Figs. 12 - 14 (CE302 models) or Figs. 15-17 (CE604 models).
  • A suitable disconnection switch must be incorporated in the permanent wiring, mounted and positioned to comply with the local wiring rules and regulations. The switch must be of an approved type installed in the fixed wiring and provide a 3 mm air gap contact separation in all poles in accordance with the local wiring rules.
  • In Australia and New Zealand, a switch of the approved type with a 3 mm air gap must be installed in the active (phase) conductor of the fixed wiring.
  • CE302 models only: It is possible to fit a standard 15 A plug suitable for the power drawn by
  • the appliance. The plug must be connected to an earthed socket in compliance with safety standards.
  • CE604 models only: due to the rating of the appliance, it is NOT possible to use a standard plug. The cooktop must be connected to the electrical system by using fixed wiring.
  • The power supply cable must not touch any hot parts and must be positioned so that it does not exceed 50°C above ambient.
  • Once the appliance has been installed, the switch or socket must always be accessible.
  • If the power supply cable is damaged, it must only be replaced by the manufacturer or its Service Agent or a similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
  • This appliance must be earthed.
  • If the installation requires alterations to the domestic electrical system call a qualified electrician. The electrician should also check that the socket cable section is suitable for the power drawn by the appliance.

Connecting the power supply cable - CE302 models 

  1. Turn the cooktop over, place it on a soft surface, and unhook the terminal block cover by inserting a screwdriver into the two hooks A (Fig. 12).
  2. Open the cable clamp by unscrewing screw F (Fig. 14) and unscrew the terminal screws.
  3. Connect mains and earth wires to their respective terminals in accordance with the connection diagram (Fig.13).
  4. Tighten the power supply cable, and fix it with clamp F.
  5. Replace the terminal block cover correctly, keeping the power supply cable tight.
