Planning notes

  • Depending on the type of installation — surface-/ or flush-mounted, with or without cover — the specific location of the control knob positions may vary. When using the appliance cover VA 440 or adjustment strip VA 450 additional space for cut-out depth needs to be considered.
  • In a combination of Vario cooktops with at least one appliance cover, the adjustment strip VA 450 is required.
  • In a combination of several Vario 400 series cooktops, connection strips must be used.
  • Depending on the type of installation — surface-/ or flush-mounted, with or without cover — the respective VA 420 connecting strip must be used.
  • For flush installation the edge height in the cut-out needs to be at least ½" and for surface-mount ⅜". Ensure a continuous cut surface of 90°.
  • The weight capacity and stability, especially in case of thin counter - tops, must be supported using suitable substructures. Take the appliance weight and additional loads into account.
  • Flush installation is possible in countertops made of stone, synthetics or solid wood. Heat resistance and watertight sealing of the edges must be observed. For other materials, please consult with your countertop manufacturer
  • The groove must be continuous and even, so that uniform placing of the appliance on the gasket is ensured. Do not use discontinuous lining.
  • The joint width may vary due to size tolerances of the combinations and of the countertop cut-out.


  • 60 Hz
  • Plan for a 6.6' connection cable between VL 414 downdraft and AA 490 control knob.
