and a frame connected green or bare copper
NOTE TO ELECTRICIAN:
The armored cable leads supplied with the
appliance are UL-listed for connection to larger
gauge household wiring. The insulation of the leads
is rated at temperatures much higher than the
temperature rating of household wiring. The
current-carrying capacity of the conductor wire is
governed by the temperature rating of the
insulation around the wire, rather than the wire
Observe all governing codes and local

recommended procedure closely.
You may not ground the cooktop through the
neutral (white) wire if cooktop is used in a
new branch circuit installation (1996 NEC),
mobile home, recreational vehicle, or where
local codes do not permit grounding to the
neutral (white) wire. When grounding to the
neutral (white) wire is prohibited, you must
use a 4-wire power supply cable. Failure to
heed this warning may result in electrocution
or other serious personal injury.
