IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
•
Have the installer show you where the gas shut-off
valve is located.
•
If a burner goes out and gas escapes, open windows
and doors. Wait until gas dissipates before using the
appliance.
•
If you smell gas, your installer has not done a proper
job of checking for leaks. If the connections are not
perfectly tight, you can have a small leak and,
therefore, a faint smell. Finding a gas leak is not a "doit-yourself" procedure. Some leaks can only be found
with the burner control in the ON position and this must
be done by a qualified service technician. See “WHAT
TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS” on page 1.
WARNING:
•
If the information in this manual is not followed exactly, a
fire or explosion may result causing property damage,
personal injury or death.
During a power failure, only the cooktop burners can
be lit manually.
•
To prevent carbon monoxide build-up, do not block
appliance air vents.
--
•
For proper lighting and performance of burners, keep
igniters clean and dry.
•

--
Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids
in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
•
•
•
•
•
--
Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act
requires the Governor of California to publish a list of
substances known to the state to cause cancer, birth
defects or other reproductive harm, and requires
businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to
such substances.
The burning of gas cooking fuel can generate some byproducts which are on the list. To minimize exposure to
these substances, always operate this unit according to
the instructions contained in this booklet and provide
good ventilation.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS
Do not try to light any appliance.
Do not touch any electrical switch.
Do not use any phone in your building.
Immediately call your gas supplier from a
neighbor’s phone. Follow the gas supplier’s
instructions.
If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call
the fire department.
Installation and service must be performed by a
qualified installer, authorized service agency or
the gas supplier.
English 1
•
Birds have very sensitive respiratory systems. Keep
pet birds out of the kitchen or other rooms where
kitchen fumes could reach them. Kitchen fumes such
as overheating margarines and cooking oils may be
harmful.
Fire Safety
•
Do not use aluminum foil to line any part of the
cooktop.
•
Set the burner control so that the flame does not
extend beyond the bottom of the pan.
•
Use this appliance only for its intended use as
described in this manual. For example, never use the
appliance for warming or heating the room. Never use
the appliance for storage.
•
Do not allow aluminum foil, plastic, paper or cloth to
come in contact with a hot burner or grate. Do not allow
pans to boil dry.
•
If the cooktop is near a window, forced air vent, or fan,
be certain that flammable materials such as window
coverings do not blow over or near the burners or
elements. They could catch on fire.
•
Always have a working smoke detector near the
kitchen.
•
Never leave the cooktop unattended when in use.
Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers may
ignite.
•
WARNING—TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGE
c) DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths or
towels - a violent steam explosion will result.
d) Use an extinguisher ONLY if:
1) You know you have a Class ABC extinguisher,
and you already know how to operate it.
2) The fire is small and contained in the area
where it started.
3) The fire department is being called.
4) You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.
5) Have an appropriate fire extinguisher
available, nearby, highly visible and easily
accessible near the oven.
•
Burn Prevention
•
DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR
UNITS - Surface units may be hot even though they
are dark in color. Areas near surface units may become
hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do
not touch, or let clothing, potholders, or other
flammable materials contact surface units or areas
near units until they have had sufficient time to cool.
Among these areas are the cooktop and areas facing
the cooktop.
•
Do not heat or warm unopened food containers. Buildup of pressure may cause the container to burst and
cause injury.
•
Use high heat settings on the cooktop only when
necessary. To avoid bubbling and splattering, heat oil
slowly on no more than a low-medium setting. Hot oil is
capable of causing extreme burns and injury.
•
Never move a pan of hot oil, especially a deep fat fryer.
Wait until it is cool.
TOP GREASE FIRE:
a) Never leave surface units unattended at high
settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite. Heat oils slowly on low or
medium settings.
b) Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat or
when flambéing food (i.e. Crepes Suzette, Cherries
Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef Flambe').
c) Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should
not be allowed to accumulate on fan or filter.
d) Use proper pan size. Always use cookware
appropriate for the size of the surface element.
•
In the event that personal clothing or hair catches fire,
drop and roll immediately to extinguish flames.
•
Smother flames from food fires other than grease fires
with baking soda. Never use water on cooking fires.
•
Take care that drafts like those from fans or forced air
vents do not push the flames so that they extend
beyond the edges of the pan.
WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS IN
THE EVENT OF A GREASE FIRE, OBSERVE THE
FOLLOWING:
a) SMOTHER FLAMES with a close-fitting lid, cookie
sheet, or metal tray, then turn off the burner. BE
CAREFUL TO PREVENT BURNS. If the flames do
not go out immediately, EVACUATE AND CALL
THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.
b) NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN - You may be
burned.
Whenever possible, do not operate the ventilation
system during a cooktop fire. However, do not reach
through fire to turn it off.
CAUTION:
All igniters spark when any single burner is turned on. Do
not touch any of the burners when the cooktop is in use.
Child Safety
•
When children become old enough to use the
appliance, it is the legal responsibility of the parents or
legal guardians to ensure that they are instructed in
safe practices by qualified persons.
•
Do not allow anyone to climb, stand, lean, sit, or hang
on any part of an appliance. This can damage the
appliance and potentially cause severe injury.
•
Do not allow children to use this appliance unless
closely supervised by an adult. Children and pets
should not be left alone or unattended in the area
where the appliance is in use. They should never be
English 2
allowed to play in its vicinity, whether or not the
appliance is in use.
•
Adjust burner flame size so that it does not extend
beyond the edge of the cookware. Proper relationship
of cookware to burner flame reduces safety risks.

Operation
About the Appliance
When a flame is present and a Low setting is used, the
igniter may occasionally spark. This is normal.
Use the cooktop for surface cooking applications such as
boiling, frying, simmering, steaming and sauteing.
In the Event of a Power Failure
Operation
WARNING:
The burning of gas cooking fuel can create
small amounts of Carbon Monoxide, Benzene,
Formaldehyde and Soot. To minimize exposure
to these substances, the burners should be
adjusted by a certified installer or agency to
ensure proper combustion. Ensure proper
ventilation with an open window or use a
ventilation fan or hood when cooking with Gas.
Always operate the unit according to the
instructions in this manual.
The cooktop has one control knob for each burner. Push
down and turn to the desired heat setting.
Normal Operation (Electronic Ignition/
Reignition)
The cooktop uses electronic igniters to light the burners.
There is no pilot light. Each burner has its own igniter. If a
burner flame blows out during use, the burner will
automatically reignite.
CAUTION:
Do not touch any of the burners when the
cooktop is in use. All ignitors spark when any
single burner is turned ON or the reignition
system is activated.
In the event of a power failure, the burners can be ignited
manually. If the cooktop is being used when a power failure
occurs, turn all the burner control knobs to the OFF
position. The burners can then be ignited manually by
holding a match at the ports and turning the control knob to
the HI position. Wait until the flame is burning all the way
around the burner before adjusting the flame to the desired
height.
WARNING:
The reignition feature will not work in the event
of a power failure.
Typical Flame Characteristics
The burner flame should be blue in color and stable with no
yellow tips, excessive noise or fluttering. It should burn
completely around the burner cap.
Yellow Flames:
Further adjustment is required.
Yellow Tips on Outer Cones:
Normal for LP Gas.
Soft Blue Flames:
Normal for Natural Gas.
If the flame is completely or
mostly yellow, verify that the
regulator is set for the correct fuel. After adjustment,
retest.
The ignitor should be clean and dry for proper operation.
•
Avoid getting water or food on the igniter.
•
If the igniter is wet or soiled, it may spark without
igniting the burner, or even spark continuously when a
flame is present.
NOTE:
If the burner does not light within 4 seconds, turn the burner
off. Check to see that the cap is positioned correctly on the
burner base and the igniter is clean and dry. If a burner still
fails to ignite, see “Before Calling for Service” on page 14.
Some yellow streaking is normal during the initial startup. Allow unit to operate 4-5 minutes and re-evaluate
before making adjustments.
Figure 10: Checking Flame Characteristics
Foreign particles in the gas line may cause an orange
flame during initial use. This should disappear with use.
Check burner to make sure port holes are not obstructed. If
the ports are clogged, see “Before Calling for Service” on
page 14.
English 10
NOTE:
An audible “pop” may be heard when the burner is turned
off manually. The “popping” may be louder with LP gas than
with natural gas. This is normal.

Proper Cookware
•
Use proper cookware. (See “Proper Cookware” on
page 11.)
Cookware Characteristics
•
Center the pan over the burner before turning the
burner on.
•
Aluminum or copper bottomed pans conduct heat
evenly.
•
Refer to the “Surface Burner Cooking
Recommendations” chart on page 11 for suggested
settings.
•
Steel pans, if not combined with other metals, may
cook unevenly.
•
Cast-iron cookware absorbs heat slowly and cooks
more evenly at low-to-medium settings.
•
Flat, heavy bottom pans provide even heat and
stability.
•
DO NOT USE pans that are thin, warped, dented or
ridged as they heat unevenly.
Choosing Cookware
Cookware Recommendations
Practice
Pan Bottom Diameter
•
•
•
The flame should be the same size as the
bottom of the pan or smaller. Do not use small
pans with high flame settings as the flames
can lick up the sides of the pan.
Oversize pans that span two burners are
placed front to back, not side to side.
For best cooking results, large pans should
not extend over the sides of the grates.
Use Balanced Pans
•
•
•
Balance is important for stability and even
cooking.
Pans must sit level on the cooktop grate
without rocking or wobbling.
Center pan over burner.
English 11
Practice
Use a Lid That Fits Properly
•
A well-fitting lid helps shorten the cooking
time.
Specialty Cookware
Use a Wok with a flat bottom.
Pans that span 2 burners, i.e. griddles, roasters and fish
poachers, may be used when placed front to back. Adjust
flame equally to cook evenly.
Canners and pressure cookers must meet the same
requirements as described above. After bringing contents
to a boil, use lowest heat setting possible to maintain a boil
or pressure (for pressure canners/cookers).
Cleaning and Maintenance
Daily Cleaning
•
Always use the mildest cleaner that will do the job. Use
clean, soft cloths, sponges or paper towels.
The entire Cooktop can be safely cleaned by wiping with a
soapy sponge, then rinsing and drying. If stubborn soil
remains, follow the recommended cleaning methods below.
•
Rub stainless steel finishes in the direction of the grain.
Wipe area dry to avoid water marks.
•
Before cleaning, be certain the burners are turned off
and the grates and burners are cool.
•
Do not clean removable cooktop parts in any selfcleaning oven.
•
After cleaning, place all parts in their proper positions
before using cooktop.
•
For proper burner performance, keep igniters clean
and dry.
•
Keep the ignitor ports clean for proper lighting
performance of the burners. It is necessary to clean
these when there is a boilover or when the burner does
not light even though the electronic ignitors click.
•
Do not use flammable cleansers such as lighter fluid or
WD-40.

STATEMENT OF LIMITED
PRODUCT WARRANTY
What this Warranty Covers & Who it
Applies to
The limited warranty provided by BSH Home Appliances
Bosch in this Statement of Limited Product Warranty
applies only to the Bosch appliance sold to you, the first
using purchaser, provided that the Product was purchased:
•
For your normal, household (non-commercial) use, and
has in fact at all times only been used for normal
household purposes.
English 15
Bosch warrants that the Product is free from defects in
materials and workmanship for a period of twelve (12)
months from the date of purchase. The foregoing timeline
begins to run upon the date of purchase, and shall not be
stalled, tolled, extended, or suspended, for any reason
whatsoever.
Repair/Replace as Your Exclusive
Remedy
During this warranty period, Bosch or one of its authorized
service providers will repair your Product without charge to
you (subject to certain limitations stated herein) if your
Product proves to have been manufactured with a defect in
materials or workmanship. If reasonable attempts to repair
the Product have been made without success, then Bosch
will replace your Product (upgraded models may be
available to you, in Bosch's sole discretion, for an
additional charge). All removed parts and components shall
become the property of Bosch at its sole option. All
replaced and/or repaired parts shall assume the identity of
the original part for purposes of this warranty and this
warranty shall not be extended with respect to such parts.
Bosch's sole liability and responsibility hereunder is to
repair manufacturer-defective Product only, using a Boschauthorized service provider during normal business hours.
For safety and property damage concerns, Bosch highly
recommends that you do not attempt to repair the Product
yourself, or use an un-authorized service provider; Bosch
will have no responsibility or liability for repairs or work
performed by a non-authorized service provider. If you
choose to have someone other than an authorized service
provider work on your Product, THIS WARRANTY WILL
AUTOMATICALLY BECOME NULL AND VOID. Authorized
service providers are those persons or companies that
have been specially trained on Bosch products, and who
possess, in Bosch's opinion, a superior reputation for
customer service and technical ability (note that they are
independent entities and are not agents, partners, affiliates
or representatives of Bosch). Notwithstanding the
foregoing, Bosch will not incur any liability, or have
responsibility, for the Product if it is located in a remote
area (more than 100 miles from an authorized service
provider) or is reasonably inaccessible, hazardous,
threatening, or treacherous locale, surroundings, or
environment; in any such event, if you request, Bosch
would still pay for labor and parts and ship the parts to the
nearest authorized service provider, but you would still be
fully liable and responsible for any travel time or other
special charges by the service company, assuming they
agree to make the service call.
Out of Warranty Product
Bosch is under no obligation, at law or otherwise, to
provide you with any concessions, including repairs, prorates, or Product replacement, once this warranty has
expired.
Warranty Exclusions
The warranty coverage described herein excludes all
defects or damage that are not the direct fault of Bosch,

customary and intended manner (including without

•
Any party's willful misconduct, negligence, misuse,
abuse, accidents, neglect, improper operation, failure
to maintain, improper or negligent installation,
tampering, failure to follow operating instructions,
mishandling, unauthorized service (including selfperformed "fixing" or exploration of the appliance's
internal workings).
•
Adjustment, alteration or modification of any kind.

A failure to comply with any applicable state, local, city,
or county electrical, plumbing and/or building codes,
regulations, or laws, including failure to install the

Ordinary wear and tear, spills of food, liquid, grease
accumulations, or other substances that accumulate
on, in, or around the Product.

Any external, elemental and/or environmental forces
and factors, including without limitation, rain, wind,
sand, floods, fires, mud slides, freezing temperatures,
excessive moisture or extended exposure to humidity,
lightning, power surges, structural failures surrounding
the appliance, and acts of God.
In no event shall Bosch have any liability or responsibility
whatsoever for damage to surrounding property, including
cabinetry, floors, ceilings, and other structures or objects
around the Product. Also excluded from this warranty are
scratches, nicks, minor dents, and cosmetic damages on
external surfaces and exposed parts; Products on which
the serial numbers have been altered, defaced, or
removed; service visits to teach you how to use the
Product, or visits where there is nothing wrong with the
Product; correction of installation problems (you are solely
responsible for any structure and setting for the Product,
including all electrical, plumbing or other connecting
facilities, for proper foundation/flooring, and for any
alterations including without limitation cabinetry, walls,

TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, THIS WARRANTY
SETS OUT YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES WITH
RESPECT TO PRODUCT, WHETHER THE CLAIM
ARISES IN CONTRACT OR TORT (INCLUDING STRICT
LIABILITY, OR NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE. THIS
WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES,
WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. ANY WARRANTY
IMPLIED BY LAW, WHETHER FOR MERCHANTABILITY
OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR
OTHERWISE, SHALL BE EFFECTIVE ONLY FOR THE
PERIOD THAT THIS EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY IS
EFFECTIVE. IN NO EVENT WILL THE MANUFACTURER
BE LIABLE FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL,
INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, "BUSINESS LOSS", AND/OR
PUNITIVE DAMAGES, LOSSES, OR EXPENSES,
INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION TIME AWAY FROM
WORK, HOTELS AND/OR RESTAURANT MEALS,
REMODELLING EXPENSES IN EXCESS OF DIRECT
DAMAGES WHICH ARE DEFINITIVELY CAUSED
EXCLUSIVELY BY BOSCH, OR OTHERWISE. SOME
STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR
LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES, AND SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW
LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY
LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY
TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC
LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER
RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
No attempt to alter, modify or amend this warranty shall be
effective unless authorized in writing by an officer of BSH.
