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.
  • If combining several Vario appliances of the 400 series, a connection strip VA 420 must be placed between the appliances. Depending on the type of installation, the corresponding connection strip must be provided.
  • The bearing capacity and stability,
    in the case of thin countertops in
    particular, must be supported using
    suitable substructures. Take into
    account the appliance weight and
    additional loads.
  • 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.
  • If installing several appliances in individual cut-outs allow for a division bar of inimum 1 " (50 mm) between the individual cut-outs.
  • Plan for an electrical connection (the appliance is not operable without power supply).
  • Air intake from above.
  • No intermediate shelf required.
  • The rear panel must consist of a non-flammable material. Wall trims must be resistant to heat.
  • A minimum lateral clearance of at least 12" from adjacent heat-sensitive furniture or contact surfaces must be observed or thermal insulation fitted.
  • Installation in a 36" wide lower cabinet is required.
  • The combination with VL 414 is not recommended, since the air extraction from the centre burner cannot be guaranteed due to the distance.
  • Minimum distance between gas cooktop(s) with more than 37,533 BTU (11kW) and ventilation hood must be 30" (76cm).
  • Appliance can be snapped into the worktop from above.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
