MINIMUM DIMENSIONS BETWEEN COOKTOP,
WALLS AND ABOVE THE COOKTOP:
A. Make sure the wall covering, countertop, flooring
and cabinets around the range can withstand the
heat (up to 200°F) generated by the range.
B. Allow 30” minimum clearance between surface
units and bottom of unprotected wood or metal
cabinet, or allow a 24” minimum when bottom
of wood or metal cabinet is protected by no less
than 1/4” thick flame retardant millboard covered
with not less than No 28 MSG sheet metal, (.015”),
.015” thick stainless steel, .024”
aluminum or .020” copper.
C. This appliance has been approved for 0” spacing to adjacent surfaces above the cooktop. However,
a 2” minimum spacing to surfaces less than 15” above the cooktop and adjacent
cabinet is recommended to reduce exposure to steam, grease splatter and heat.
To reduce the risk of burns or fire when reaching over hot surface elements, cabinet storage space
above the cooktop should be avoided. If cabinet storage space is to be provided above
the cooktop, the risk can be reduced by installing a range hood that projects at least 5” beyond
the front of the cabinets. Cabinets installed above the cooktop must be no deeper than 13”.
