- 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 rangehood that projects horizontally a minimum of 5 “ (127 mm) beyond the bottom of the cabinets.
B=30” (762 mm) minimum clearance between the top of the cooking surface and the bottom of an unprotected wood or metal cabinet; or B=24” (610 mm) minimum when bottom of wood or metal cabinet is protected by not less than 1⁄4-inch-thick flame-retardant millboard covered with not less than No. 28 MSG sheet steel, 0.015-inch-thick stainless steel, 0.024-inch-thick aluminum, or 0.020-inch-thick copper.
Only the oven models indicated in Fig.1 below may be installed below the cooktop.

Before you Install the Cooktop, Make Sure:
- The countertop is square and level, and no structural members interfere with space requirements the countertop is made of a heat-resistant material.
- The cooktop will not be installed directly above a dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washing machine or clothes dryer, as the humidity may damage the cooktop electronics.
- If an oven is installed below the cooktop, it must be one of the models indicated in Fig.1.
- The installation will comply with all clearance requirements and applicable standards and regulations.
- You check that the cooktop is not damaged after unpacking it. If you suspect that it is damaged, do not install the cooktop. Contact the dealer you purchased the cooktop from.
- You read these instructions fully and carefully before beginning to install the appliance.
- You do not remove any permanently affixed labels, warnings or plates from the appliance. Doing so may void the warranty.
- You switch the power off at the service panel and lock the panel to prevent the power from being switched on accidentally.
- The junction box will be easily accessible 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:
- The connection through conduit is not accessible through cupboard doors or drawers.
- The power supply cables of other appliances installed nearby cannot come into contact with the cooktop.
- There is adequate flow of fresh air from outside the cabinetry to the base of the cooktop.
- There is adequate slack in the conduit to allow for servicing.
- The junction box remains accessible with the cooktop installed.
- You complete the ‘Final checklist’ at the end of these installation instructions.
Additional Electrical Requirements
- Electrical installation must be carried out only by a licensed electrician.
- The cooktop MUST be connected to the proper electrical voltage and frequency as specified:
|Model||Rated Power||Required Power Supply|
|CE244C||5.9kW (4.4kW)||240V~,25A, 60Hz (208V~, 21.3A, 60Hz)|
|CE365D||8.4kW (6.5kW)||240V~,35A, 60Hz (208V~, 30.3A, 60Hz)|
- This appliance must be connected to a grounded, metallic permanent wiring system or a ground connector should be connected to the ground terminal or wire lead on the cooktop.
- This appliance is manufactured with a frame-connected, green or bare ground wire. Connect the cooktop cable to the junction box through the CSA or UL-listed conduit connector. Complete electrical connection according to local codes and ordinances.
Improper connection of aluminum house wiring to copper leads can result in an electrical hazard or fire. Use only connectors designed for joining copper to aluminum and follow the manufacturer’s recommended procedure.
- Connect the cooktop with copper wire only.
- The flexible (4’) armored cable should be connected directly to the junction box. Do not cut the conduit.
- A CSA or UL-listed conduit must be provided at the junction box.
- Do not ground to a gas pipe.
- Do not have a fuse in the grounding or neutral circuit.
- A time delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended.
- Connect directly to the fused disconnect (or circuit breaker box) through flexible, armored or non-metallic sheathed, copper cable (with grounding wire).
- If codes permit and a separate grounding wire is used, it is recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the grounding path and wire gauge are in accordance with local codes.
Connecting the Cooktop to the Power Supply
- The nameplate label is located on the underside of the cooktop, on the right hand side. See Fig. 5 below.
- If the appliance is to be completely enclosed in a cabinet, feed the appliance cable through the opening in the cabinet.
- Disconnect the power supply.
- Remove the junction box cover.
- Connect the cooktop cable to the junction box through the CSA or UL-listed conduit connector.
- Connect the two black wires together with twist-on connectors.
- Connect the two red wires together with twist-on connectors.
- Connect electrical connection according to local codes and ordinances.
- If local codes PERMIT connecting the cabinet-grounding connector to the neutral (white) wire in the junction box:
7a. Connect the green cooktop cable wire to the neutral (white) wire in the junction box (Fig. 3).
8a. Replace the junction box cover.
- OR If local codes DO NOT PERMIT connecting the cabinet-grounding connector to the neutral (white) wire in the junction box:
7b. Terminate the neutral (white) wire in the junction box (Fig. 4).
8b. Connect the green grounding cooktop cable wire to a grounded wire in the junction box.
9b. Replace the junction box cover.
- OR If connecting to a four-wire electrical system:
7c. Terminate the neutral (white) wire in the junction box (Fig. 4).
8c. Connect the green cooktop cable wire to the green grounding wire in the junction box (Fig. 4).
9c. Replace the junction box cover.
Location of Nameplate Label
Fastening the Cooktop to the Counter
- Turn the cooktop upside down and place it on a soft surface.
- Spread the seal around the edges of the cooktop with the adhesive side facing down, as shown in Figs. 6 and 7. Make sure that the whole perimeter is sealed. Cut off any excess material.
- Mount the supplied clamps (A) and screws (B) onto the cooktop, as shown (without tightening the screws).
- Place the cooktop into the cutout, then tighten the screws to clamp the cooktop securely to the counter.
- Using a sharp cutter or trimmer knife, trim the excess sealing material around the edge of the cooktop. Take care not to damage the countertop.
if the countertop is thicker than 1 9⁄16” (40 mm), recess the underside to between 1 3⁄16” (30 mm) and 1 9⁄16” (40 mm).

To be Completed by the Installer
- Is the cooktop grounded?
- Check that the connection through conduit is not accessible via cupboard doors or drawers. Is the cooktop clamped down securely?
- Make sure the cooktop is clean and free from any debris. Wipe with a clean damp cloth if necessary.
- 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?
- Is the ‘On’ indicator glowing?
- Are all the ‘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’ and ‘On’ indicators and the importance of taking note of the safety warnings at the beginning of this manual.
