Before you install the cooktop, make sure that
  • the benchtop is square and level, and no structural members interfere with space requirements
  • the benchtop is made of a heat-resistant material
  • the cooktop will not be installed directly above a dishwasher, as the humidity may damage the cooktop
  • the installation will comply with all clearance requirements and applicable standards and regulations
  • a suitable isolating switch providing full disconnection from the mains power supply is incorporated in the permanent wiring, mounted and positioned to comply with the local wiring rules and regulations. The isolating switch must be of an approved type and provide a 3 mm air gap contact separation in all poles (or in all active [phase] conductors if the local wiring rules allow for this variation of the requirements)
  • the isolating switch will be easily accessible to the customer with the cooktop installed
  • you consult local building authorities and by-laws if in doubt regarding installation
  • you use heat-resistant and easy-to-clean finishes (such as ceramic tiles) for the wall surfaces surrounding the cooktop.
When you have installed the cooktop, make sure that
  • the power supply cable is not accessible through cupboard doors or drawers
  • there is adequate flow of fresh air from outside the cabinetry to the base of the cooktop if the cooktop is installed directly above an oven or its base is accessible through a cupboard or drawer space after installation, a thermal protection barrier is installed below the base of the cooktop (see below)
  • the isolating switch is easily accessible by the customer
  • you complete the ‘Final checklist’ at the end of these installation instructions.
The thermal protection barrier must be:
  • removable
  • heat-resistant
  • made from low thermal conductivity material
  • at least 20 mm below the base of the cooktop to ensure adequate ventilation

Thermal protection barrier

Fastening the cooktop to the bench
  1. Turn the cooktop upside down and place it on a soft surface.
  2. Spread the seal around the edges of the ceramic glass with the adhesive side facing down, making sure that the whole perimeter is sealed. Cut off any excess material.
  3. Mount the supplied clamps (A) and screws (B) onto the cooktop, as shown (without tightening the screws).
  4. Place the cooktop into the cutout, then tighten the screws to clamp the cooktop securely to the bench.
  5. Using a sharp cutter or trimmer knife, trim the excess sealing material around the edge of the cooktop. Take care not to damage the benchtop.

If your bench is thicker than 40 mm, recess the underside to between 30 and 40 mm.

Preparing the cooktop before installation (models may vary)


Fastening the cooktop to the beach

  • This cooktop must be connected to the mains power supply only by a suitably qualified person.
  • This cooktop must be earthed.
  • Before connecting the cooktop to the mains power supply, check that:
    • the domestic wiring system is suitable for the power drawn by the cooktop
    • the voltage corresponds to the value given on the rating plate
    • the power supply cable sections can withstand the load specified on the rating plate.
  • To connect the cooktop to the mains power supply, do not use adapters, reducers, or branching devices, as they can cause overheating and fire.
  • The power supply cable must not touch any hot parts and must be positioned so that its temperature will not exceed 75 oC at any point.

Power supply

CE302C 2900W @ 220-240V~ (12.6 A)
CE604L 6000W @ 220-240/380-415V 3N~ (26 A)
CE604C 6400W @ 220-240/380-415V 3N~ (27.8 A)
CE905C 8400W @ 220-240/380-415V 3N~ (36.5 A)

Check with an electrician whether the domestic wiring system is suitable without alterations. Any alterations must only be made by a qualified electrician.

Connection diagrams 




Is the cooktop earthed?

Check that the power supply cable is NOT touching the base of the cooktop. This will ensure that the cable is not damaged by heat from the cooktop.

Check that the power supply cable is not accessible via cupboard doors or drawers.

Is the cooktop clamped down securely?

Check that all the cooking zones function correctly. Turn on all of them to a high setting and leave them on for at least one minute.

Are all elements glowing?

Are all ‘Hot surface’ indicators glowing?

Have you shown the customer how to use the cooktop? Make sure you explain to the customer about the ‘Hot surface’ indicators. Encourage them to read the full user guide before using the cooktop.
