Before Using your New Cooktop  

  • Carefully review this User Manual, taking special note of the ‘Safety Warnings’ section.
  • Remove any protective film that may still be on your cooktop.

CAUTION: Please read this section prior to making the cut-out for your cooktop. It is important to plan ahead for the installation of your cooktop, keeping the listed dimensions in mind.



  • A: 13” maximum depth of overhead cabinets
  • B: 36” minimum height of the countertop above the floor
  • C: The minimum flat countertop surface that the cooktop will rest on must be equal to or greater than the overall cooktop dimensions (refer to the next page for overall cooktop dimensions).
  • D: 30” minimum clearance between the top of the cooking surface and the bottom of an unprotected wood or metal cabinet OR 24” minimum clearance when the bottom of the wood or metal cabinet is protected by not less than ¼” thick flame retardant millboard covered with not less than No. 28 MSG sheet steel, or 0.015” thick stainless steel, 0.024” thick aluminum, or 0.020” thick copper.
  • E: 1” minimum from the backsplash of the countertop to the edge of the cooktop glass.

To eliminate the risk of burns by reaching over heated surface units, cabinet storage space located above surface units should be avoided. If cabinet storage is to be provided, the risk can be reduced by installing a range hood that projects horizontally a minimum of 5” beyond the bottom of the cabinets.

Before making the countertop cutout, check for clearance. Check to see if the cooktop will clear the front and side walls of the base cabinet. It is also important to provide adequate ventilation. Adequate ventilation of the space below the countertop must be provided to ensure proper operation of the cooktop. Heat transferred from the cooktop bottom pan during operation will overheat an improperly ventilated area.


  • Allow a 2” minimum clearance between the bottom of the metal pan of the cooktop and any combustible surface located below, i.e.: the upper edge of a drawer installed below the cooktop (see Fig. B). Failure to provide proper ventilation may result in a fire hazard.
  • Since the appliance requires a sufficient supply of fresh air to operate at maximum performance, the cabinet must be designed accordingly. The following is required for this:
    • The cabinet must have a minimum of two openings, one to allow fresh air to enter and the other for hot air to escape the cabinet.
    • Opening sizes must be equal to 8 square inches each. This is for ambient temperatures of 85ºF/30ºC and below. If the ambient temperature around the appliance is above 85ºF/30ºC, then larger ventilation opening sizes may be required.


Placing your Cooktop into the Cut Out

  1. Stretch out the supplied seal along the underside edge of the cooktop, ensuring the ends overlap at the corners. SUMMIT-CR2B228T-Ceramic-Cooktop-FIG-5
  2. Do not use an adhesive to fix the cooktop into the worktop. Once the seal is fitted, position the cooktop into the cutout in the worktop. Apply gentle downward pressure onto the cooktop to push it into the worktop, ensuring a good seal around the outer edge. SUMMIT-CR2B228T-Ceramic-Cooktop-FIG-6
  • The cooktop must be installed by qualified personnel or technicians. Please never attempt the installation by yourself.
  • The cooktop should not be installed above a dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washing machine, or clothes dryer, as the humidity may damage the cooktop’s electronics.
  • The ceramic cooktop should be installed such that better heat radiation can be ensured to enhance its reliability.
  • The wall and induced heating zone above the table surface shall withstand heat.
  • To avoid any damage, the sandwich layer and adhesive must be resistant to heat.

Connecting the Cooktop to the Power Supply

  • Improper connection of the equipment-grounding can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power cord of the unit is damaged, have it replaced by an authorized service center.
  • This appliance may be connected by mean of permanent “Hard Wiring” or “Power Supply Cord Kit”. A power supply cord is not supplied but is available through your local electrical supply house.
  • Use only 3-conductor UL listed cord rated at 20 amps with 240V minimum voltage range. These cords may be provided with strain relief or conduit connector.
  • This unit must be connected to the proper electrical voltage and frequency at specified on the rating label.
  • The unit should be connected directly to the junction box through a fixable, armored, or nonmetallic sheathed, copper cable. The flexible, armored cable extended from the fuse box or circuit breaker box should be connected directly to the junction box. Locate the junction box to allow as much slack as possible between the junction box and the unit so that the unit can be moved if servicing becomes necessary in the future.
  • DO NOT cut the conduit. Use the length of conduit provided.
  • For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.
  • Remove house fuse or open circuit breaker before beginning installation.
  • DO NOT attempt to repair or replace any part of the appliance unless it is specifically recommended in this manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician.
  • To minimize the possibility of electric shock, disconnect this appliance from the A/C power supply before attempting any maintenance.


Use the 3-wire cable from the power supply, where local codes permit, connecting the frame-ground conductor to the neutral (blue) junction box wire.

  1. Disconnect the power supply.
  2. Remove the junction box cover if present
  3. Connect the flexible cable conduit (3) from the cooktop to the junction box (4) using a UL-listed or CSA-approved conduit connector (7).
  4. Tighten screws on conduit connector if present.
  5. Connect the two brown wires (1) together using the UL listed wire nut (5).

Control Panel  


  • The controls respond to touch, so you don’t need to apply any pressure.
  • Use the ball of your finger, not its tip, as show below: SUMMIT-CR2B228T-Ceramic-Cooktop-FIG-9
  • You will hear a beep each time a touch is registered.
  • Make sure the controls are always clean, dry, and that there is no object (e.g., a utensil or a cloth) covering them. Even a thin film of water may make the controls difficult to operate.

Choosing the Proper Cookware

  • Do not use cookware with jagged edges or a curved base. SUMMIT-CR2B228T-Ceramic-Cooktop-FIG-10
  • Make sure that the base of your pan is smooth, sits flat against the glass, and is the same size as the cooking zone. Use pans whose diameter is as large as the graphic of the zone selected. Using a slightly wider pot means energy will be used at its maximum efficiency. If you use smaller pot, the efficiency could be less than expected.
  • Always center your pan on the cooking zone. SUMMIT-CR2B228T-Ceramic-Cooktop-FIG-11
  • Always lift pans off the ceramic hob – do not slide, or they may scratch the glass. SUMMIT-CR2B228T-Ceramic-Cooktop-FIG-12
