Before you install the appliance, please make sure that

  • The countertop is made of a heat resistant material.
  • The power supply cable is not accessible through cupboard doors or drawers.
  • There is adequate flow of cool air from the cabinetry to the base of the cooktop. You may ventilate from adjacent cupboards, but ensure that the available air supply will not be restricted.
  • The ventilation area must be at least two 2” / 50mm diameter holes or of an equivalent area. the isolating switch is easily accessible by the customer.
  • You use heat-resistant and easy-to-clean finishes (such as ceramic tiles) for the wall surfaces surrounding the cooktop.
  • 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 the cooktop is installed above an oven, the oven has a built-in cooling fan.
  • The installation will comply with all clearance requirements and applicable standards and regulations.
  • You consult local building authorities and by-laws if in doubt regarding installation.
  • 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”/127mm beyond the bottom of the overhead cabinets.

When you install the appliance

  • We do not recommend you flush mount or seal this appliance into the counter with silicone or glue. Doing so will make future servicing difficult. Fisher & Paykel will not be liable for any costs associated with removing or replacing a sealed-in appliance, nor for repairing any damage that may be incurred by doing this.
  • 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 countertop.
  • 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.
