As servicing requires removing of the cooktop from the countertop 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.
