When you install the appliance

  • As servicing requires removing of the cooktop from the benchtop we do not recommend flush mounting. To the fullest extent permissible by law, the owner carries all risk for flush mounting of the cooktop. The owner must ensure the cooktop has been cut out from the benchtop before servicing can be carried out. Fisher & Paykel will not be liable for any costs associated with removing or replacing a flush-mounted and/or sealed-in product, nor for repairing any damage that may be incurred by doing this. Fisher & Paykel does not exclude any statutory liability it may have and which by law cannot be excluded, because of the giving of this notice.
  • If installed with an approved flexible hose, the hose should not come in contact with the bottom of the appliance or any sharp edges. Flexible hose assemblies should be AS/NZS 1869 Class B or Class D certified with a maximum length of 1.20m.
  • Seal exposed bare edges of the cutout with an oil-based paint or moisture-proof polyurethane to prevent possible moisture creeping between the cooktop trim and the benchtop.
  • Take extreme care not to chip, crack, or break the top glass surfaces during installation. A heavy metal tool or part accidentally dropped on the glass could damage it.
  • If, after following the instructions given, correct performance cannot be achieved, please contact your nearest Fisher & Paykel Authorised Service Centre, Customer Care, or contact us through our local website listed at the end of this document.
