Fig. 4
CONTROL
1. The fire controlled by using the spinwheel on the
ashpit door to govern air supply.
2. The adjustable flue chamber damper is for reducing
the chimney draught, and the more it can be closed,
the easier the cooker is to control. The line markings
on the flue chamber damper enable you to repeat the
best settings to suit your chimney, from No.1 in a
closed position to No.6 when fully open.
Fig. 5
3
Control Setting
Set spinwheel open which does not require to be open
more than:
1. Coke - Five complete turns.
2. Other recommended fuels - three complete turns
during cooking period.
Set the flue chamber damper fully open after refuelling
and reset to position which has been found by practical
experience to give the best results. Do not try to obtain a
fast increase in temperature by opening the flue chamber
damper to its fullest extent. This results in most of the heat
being wasted up the chimney.
Avoid excessive fire temperatures with solid fuel - they are
unnecessary and may do serious harm to the cooker.
The first symptoms of an overheated cooker is the
formation of clinker (melted ash) which will damage the
firebricks.
Damaged firebricks should be replaced as soon as
possible but may be temporarily repaired with fire cement.
Keep the ashpit door securely closed with the front
plate catch.
ALWAYS DE-ASH BEFORE REFUELLING AT
INTERVALS OF THREE TIME DAILY AT LEAST.
NOTE: SHOULD THE BOTTOMGRATE DE-ASHING
FAIL TO CLEAR AN ACCUMULATION OF STONES,
SHALE OR CLINKER IT MAYBE REMOVED AS
DESCRIBED IN SECTION ON REMOVAL OF CLINKER.
Open the ashpit door to give access to the ashpan which
must be emptied regularly (Fig. 3). The class of fuel and
cooker usage govern the frequency of refuelling.
NOTE: DO NOT ALLOW ASH TO ACCUMULATE IN
THE ASHPAN UNTIL IT TOUCHES THE UNDERSIDE
OF THE BOTTOMGRATE OR IT WILL QUICKLY BURN
OUT.
Ensure the ashpan is fully home otherwise the ashpit
door may not close and lock completely.
EXCEPTIONS: WHEN BURNING ANTHRACITE OR
PHURNACITE, ALWAYS REFUEL BEFORE EMPTYING
ASHPAN AND RIDDLING.
REMOVAL OF CLINKER AND
BOTTOMGRATE
Due to an accumulation of pieces of stone, clinker and
shale etc. it may not be possible to pass them through the
grate when riddling, and may even cause jamming.
Allow the fire to burn out and then open the ashpit door
and remove ashpan.
1. Engage the curved end of the grate assembly removal
tool, within the groove in the centre of the
bottomgrate support (Fig. 6).
2. Raise the front end of the tool slightly and draw the
tool forwards so that the grate support moves forward
over its support lugs.
3. Taking the weight of the grate assembly lower the
front of the removal tool and withdraw the complete
grate assembly. Clean out.
4. Replace in reverse order of withdrawal ensuring the
grate support is positively located on the front points
of the ashpit.
The amount of clinker formation is dependent on the
burning rate and should be checked weekly for any buildup. Excessive build-up will lead to a fall off in burning rate,
and reduction in life of the bottomgrate; so the
bottomgrate should be kept clear of clinker.
OVERNIGHT BURNING
The appliance is designed for continuous burning and the
best results will only be obtained if it is allowed to burn
overnight. It is no more expensive in fuel costs.
Last thing at night, de-ash the fire, empty and fully refuel
but do not overload.
Ensure that the firebox and ashpit doors are securely
closed and after closing the spinwheel, re-open it a
quarter of a turn.
NOTE: THE BEST POSITION FOR THE FLUE
CHAMBER DAMPER CAN BE FOUND ONLY BY
EXPERIMENT BUT ALWAYS TRY THE LOW SETTING
FIRST.
In the morning, open the spinwheel three complete turns,
the flue chamber damper to maximum and riddle the fire.
When it is burning brightly, close the flue chamber
damper, but do not refuel before use if the hotplate is
required immediately.
REFUELLING
The firebox should be filled to the recommended level of
the bottom firebox door opening and the firebox door
closed.
NOTE: A DEEP BED OF NEWLY CHARGED FUEL ON A
LOW FIRE WILL TAKE TIME BEFORE HEAT REACHES
THE OVEN, HOTPLATE AND BOILER. WHEN
BURNING COAL, PHURNACITE AND ANTHRACITE
ALLOW SEVERAL MINUTES FOR THE NEW CHARGE
TO IGNITE BEFORE CHANGING THE FLUE CHAMBER
DAMPER SETTING.
ONCE FUELLING HAS BEEN COMPLETED, CLOSE
THE FIREBOX DOOR IMMEDIATELY AND OPEN ONLY
FOR REFUELLING CHARGES.
REFUELLING
To de-ash, open the chimney damper to its maximum
setting then:
1. Engage the operating tool on the riddling lever knob.
2. Push the operating tool in a back and forth motion
about 12 times to free the grate of ash.
Fig. 6

USE OF THE HOTPLATE
FLUEWAY CLEANING
The best results can only be obtained by using machined
base utensils. The hottest part of the hotplate is
immediately above the fire, the other end being for
simmering.
The circular plug in the hotplate (near the flue chamber
end) is for flue cleaning and must not be removed for
cooking.
NOTE: TO OBTAIN HOTPLATE PERFORMANCE FOR
FAST BOILING OR HOTPLATE COOKING, FUEL THE
FIREBOX APERTURE TO A HORIZONTAL LEVEL .
WARNING: THE COOKER TOP PLATE SURFACE
AROUND THE HOTPLATE WILL BECOME HOT UNDER
USE AND CARE MUST BE OBSERVED.
When burning coke, anthracite and other smokeless
fuels, the appliance flueway should be cleaned on a
regular four weekly basis.
When burning bituminous coal, cleaning should be done
at weekly intervals.
Failure to ensure clean flueways, flue pipe and bends
may lead to emission of dangerous gases and an inferior
performance from your appliance.
Allow the fire to burn out. Open the flue chamber damper
to its maximum and remove the flue chamber door.
Brush the soot or fly ash from the flue pipe allowing it to
fall onto the top of the oven.
Remove the hotplate plug and rake the deposits forward,
pushing them into the firebox. Figs. 7, 8 & 9.
Replace the flue chamber door and hotplate plug and
riddle the bottomgrate for re-lighting.
NOTE: THE APPLIANCE IS DESIGNED AND
INTENDED TO BE UNDER CONTINUOUS FIRING BUT
IF IT IS NOT IN USE, ASHPIT AND FLUE CHAMBER
DOOR SHOULD BE LEFT OPEN TO ENSURE FREE
PASSAGE OF AIR THROUGH THE APPLIANCE AND
AVOID CONDENSATION PROBLEMS.
Chimney Sweeping
Sweep annually and inspect soot box at 3 monthly
intervals and remove any deposits.
NOTE: SWEEP BRUSHES MUST BE OF THE TYPE
WITH WIRE CENTRES AND GUIDE WHEELS.
MAIN OVEN
The correct adjustment of the spinwheel and flue chamber
damper to obtain the oven temperature required varies
with the chimney draught and can be found only be
experiment. The following is a suggested method only,
and may need modification to suit local conditions.
Suppose an oven temperature for roasting is desired and
that the cooker is idling. Thoroughly de-ash the fire as
described in the respective paragraph, and re-fuel.
Set the flue chamber damper to No.3 setting, and open
the spinwheel as described under ‘Control Setting’.
As soon as the fire has become red all through, close the
flue chamber damper. Do not allow the fire to become
white hot.
The temperature of the oven should now rise steadily.
When it reaches a point about 30ºC (50ºF) below that
required, close the spinwheel to approximately one turn
open. Thereafter control the temperature of the oven by
adjusting the spinwheel.
NOTE:
THE
APPLIANCE
SHOULD
PROVE
SUCCESSFUL IN ALMOST ALL CASES, BUT IF
CLOSING THE FLUE CHAMBER DAMPER CAUSES
THE FIRE TO SMOKE, IT SHOULD BE OPENED
GRADUALLY UNTIL THE SMOKING STOPS.
To reduce top heat in the oven, place the solid plain shelf
on the top or second pair of oven runners. The oven may
be cleaned with a stiff wire brush, when it is very hot.

CLEANING
REMEMBER: BE CAREFUL OF THE HOT APPLIANCE.
To keep the vitreous enamelled surfaces bright and clean,
wipe over daily with a soapy damp cloth, followed by a
clean dry duster. If milk, fruit juice or anything containing
acid is spilt on the top plate or down the cooker, be sure
to wipe it immediately or the vitreous enamel may be
permanently discoloured. Keep a damp cloth handy while
cooking, to wipe up spills as they occur, so they do not
harden and become more difficult to remove later.
If spills do become baked on a cream cleanser can be
used. For stubborn deposits a soap impregnated pad can
be carefully used on the vitreous enamel.
In the main oven, spills and fat splashes are carbonised
at high temperature, occasionally brush off with a stiff
brush. The oven door can be removed for cleaning - do
not immerse in water, and shelves can be soaked and
cleaned with a cream cleanser.
Check with pointer reading on oven door thermodial.
NOTE: DUE TO VARYING SITE CONDITIONS NONBOILER

WARMING OVEN
The oven is primary intended for heating plates and
keeping food warm. As a guide it is around half the
temperature of the main oven.
NOTE: THE DOORS SHOULD NOT BE SLAMMED
SHUT OR THIS WILL WEAR AWAY THE METAL
RETAINING CATCHES.

FIREBRICK REPLACEMENT
The firebricks fitted to the Rayburn Cookmaster Plus
212S are of first quality manufacture, and providing the
cooker has been installed and used correctly will have a
reasonable life. They are, however, expendable items and
in time will require renewal.
Replacement bricks either in sets or singly can be
obtained from your Rayburn distributor. Always quote the
manufacturing number.
The manufacturing number, which will be found on a data
plaque inside the ashpit door, should be quoted if any
questions arise in connection with this Rayburn Cooker.

COOKING HINTS
The oven is indirectly heated from outside by hot gases
from the heat source so no flames or elements within the
ovens means full use can be made of the whole cooking
space.
The main oven is slightly hotter towards the top than the
bottom. At a low idling heat the main oven can be used
for long slow cooking such as casseroles, stock, soup,
ratatouille, curries, meringues, creme caramels, rice
puddings, etc all of which benefit from gentle slow heat
and as the oven is vented into the flue, cooking smells
disappear to the outside.
One of the many benefits of the cast iron oven is that the
floor of the oven is hotter than that of a conventional
cooker. No need to bake quiche pastry cases “blind” just
place the flan dish on the oven floor for half of the cooking
time for “soggy-free” pastry. When the oven is hot the floor
of the oven can be used for shallow frying (a cast iron dish
is recommended) with the added advantages that fat
splashes are carbonised so cleaning is minimised and the
frying smells are taken away through the flue.
For perfect baking results turn food during cooking.
The top of a hot oven is where grilling takes place, use the
meat tray with a grill rack (optional extra) so that the fat
can drip into the tray.
The thermodial gauge, on the main oven door is a guide
to the internal oven temperature. Remember though, on
opening the door the temperature will appear to drop, do
not worry, close the door and after a few minutes the true
temperature can be read again.
Heat is not lost as quickly from a cast iron oven as a
pressed metal box type so you can peep at the cake to
see how it is cooking without it sinking.
As you have probably realised, the meat tray supplied
with your Rayburn fits the oven, hanging directly from the
runners, so leaving the grid shelves free for other dishes.
The oven grid shelves are designed to be non-tilt and
should be fitted with the upstand to the top and at the
back, so when pulled forward the shelf cannot come right
out.
The solid plain shelf, as mentioned before, can be used
as a baking sheet or as a heat deflector. If the oven is too
hot or food already in the oven is beginning to overbrown
slide in the solid plain shelf, above the food. To be
effective the shelf should be stored out of the oven, so it
is used from cold.
DO NOT USE ABRASIVE PADS OR OVEN CLEANERS
NOTE: IT IS NOT ADVISABLE TO PUT VERY WET
CLOTHES ON THE HANDRAIL, AS THIS MAY CRAZE
THE ENAMEL.
NOTE: SMOKE/SMELL EMITTED DURING INITIAL
USAGE.
Some parts of the cooker have been coated with a light
covering of protective oil. During initial operation of the
cooker, this may cause smoke/smell to be emitted and is
normal and not a fault with the appliance, it is therefore
advisable to open doors and or windows to allow for
ventilation. Lift the lids to prevent staining the linings.

The 28mm minimum diameter primary flow and return
pipes must not exceed 10m in length and pipes longer
than 5m must be lagged.
Ensure that the flow pipe has an open vent and rises
continuously from the boiler to the cylinder to ensure good
gravity circulation.
PREPARATION OF SITE
The water draw-off pipes to the taps must be dead-leg
connection from the vent/expansion pipe.
The non-combustible hearth must be solid and level and
together with the walls adjacent to the cooker and
chimney, conform to current Building Regulations.
A towel rail of not more than 0.5m2 heating surface may be
heated providing the flow and return pipes are not more
than 5m each in length, and provided the cylinder and
towel rail are lagged. When the hot water storage cylinder
is very closely coupled to the boiler, a towel rail is
advisable as a heat leak, and lagging should not be
applied. A radiator is not recommended.
The cooker and chimney flue installation should be in
accordance with the relevant recommendations of
BS8303, BS. 6461 Part 1 and BS. 7566 Parts 1 to 4.
Rayburn Cookmaster Plus 212S - The boiler installation
section must also be in accordance with the byelaws of the
local Water Undertaking and any relevant requirements of
the Local Authority.
To obtain the boiler outputs the fire must be idled
overnight, and daytime cooking take place.
COOKER POSITION
All installations must be fitted with a drain tap at the lowest
point of the system.
When the cooker is installed in a recess it must be
‘freestanding’ and not built-in solid at the sides.
IMPORTANT NOTE: THESE INSTRUCTIONS MUST BE
STRICTLY OBSERVED. IF THEY ARE DISREGARDED
(E.G. AN UNLAGGED OR OVER-SIZE CYLINDER),
CONSUMPTION OF FUEL MAY BE EXCESSIVE, AND
THE COOKER DAMAGED BY OVERFIRING.
Where the cooker is to stand in a recess or against a
wall which is to be tiled, in no circumstances should
the tiles overlap the cooker top plate.

THE CHIMNEY
Checking Existing Chimney
The internal and external location of the chimney should
be checked before the appliance is installed and
rectification made where necessary to prevent leakage or
porosity. The soundness of the chimney which should
have a minimum flue dimension of 150mm can be
confirmed by smoke testing.
Advice on the test method can be obtained from HETAS
Ltd.
When repairing or re-using existing chimneys it is
recommended that the building control officer be consulted
before the commencement of work with particular attention
to the chimney height and its termination
The chimney MUST be swept before installation.

CHIMNEYS OF PLAIN PIPE ARE NOT RECOMMENDED
BUT CERTAIN PROPRIETARY MAKES OF INSULATED
CHIMNEY ARE SUITABLE.Provision must be made for a
a) Rear Flue Outlet
This must only be used where there is a brick flue
immediately behind the cooker. Provision must be
made for a condensate collecting vessel and
cleaning door. See Fig. 3.
AIR SUPPLY
permanent unobstructed air vent having a minimum
effective area of 126cm2 communicating directly to outside
air or an adjacent room which has a permanent air vent of
at least the flue size direct to outside air.
EXTENDED HORIZONTAL FLUE PIPE CONNECTION IS
ALLOWED UP TO A MAXIMUM OF 150mm IN LENGTH.
NO BEND CONNECTIONS ARE ALLOWED.
Effect of Extractor Fan
Avoid if possible the installation of an extractor fan in the
same room as the appliance or the room where the
permanent air vent is located.
b) Top Flue Outlet
The cooker should be connected to the main flue via
a 125mm minimum diameter cast iron flue pipe or
appropriately internally/externally vitreous enamelled
mild steel pipe and be sealed to the cooker flue
chamber with soft rope and fire cement. Any bends
in the flue pipe must not be less than 135º (45º from
vertical) and be complete with a cleaning door.
Compensating extra air inlets must be introduced
equivalent to the capacity of the fan wheel when fitted.
HIGH UPDRAUGHTS
FLUE LAYOUTS
Tall chimneys may develop excessively high updraughts
which prevent the appliance operating correctly.
In Fig. 2 the cooker is installed in an existing recess. There
must be a clearance of not less than 150mm between the
top of the flue pipe and any overhanging brickwork.
It is recommended that a proprietary brand adjustable flue
draught stabiliser having an openable cross sectional area
of 126cm2 be fitted above the flue pipe connection, either
in the brickwork or into a right angle ‘T’ fitting in the flue
pipe position that will not inconvenience appliance
operation or maintenance.
Any cavities or pockets above the register plate should as
far as possible be filled and if necessary the flue pipe
should be extended into the throat of the chimney and a
soot door provided for chimney sweeping.
If a flue liner or insulated chimney is used, the size should
not be less than 150mm.
In Fig. 3 the cooker is connected direct to a brick flue.
Horizontal pipe runs between cooker and brick flue must
not be used.
In Fig. 4 the cooker is connected to an existing brick flue
with a length of flue pipe. Square bends and horizontal
runs must not be used. There must be a cleaning door at
every bend.
NOTE: WHATEVER METHOD OF INSTALLATION IS
EMPLOYED. AIR MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO ENTER
THE CHIMNEY EXCEPT THROUGH THE COOKER. ALL
JOINTS MUST BE AIR-TIGHT.
If the chimney is unlined, and there is any doubt about its
condition, it should be lined in accordance with Current
Building Regulations.

INSTALLATION
Place the cooker in the intended position and lift out the
surface ground hotplate, checking that the joint between
the underside of the hob and the top of the cooker are
intact.
Any joints which have opened should be made good
with fire cement provided.
Replace the hotplate making sure that it is seating
evenly on the soft rope and that it is approximately
1.5mm proud of the enamelled top plate, with an equal
space all round.
Connect pipework to boiler flow and return tappings.
Fig. 5
Fit the flue chamber which should be given a 1mm
smear of fire cement on the underside then screwed to
the cooker. Make sure there is a good seal between the
flue chamber and the cooker top (if there is an ingress
of air it can affect the flue draught and proper working of
the cooker). Before the fire cement hardens remove any
surplus with a damp cloth then polish with a dry cloth.
Open the firebox and ashpit doors and check that the
bottomgrate is in position. Operate the riddling lever to
ensure the bottomgrate operation.
Failure to do so can result in the enamel surface being
permanently marked.
The handrail brackets are held on the front end of the
cooker top-plate casting. Remove the travel nuts and
replace with the handrail brackets ensuring the fibre
protecting washers are in position. Insert the handrail
with fitted endcaps into the brackets, positioning them
correctly and tighten the locating bolts. (See Fig. 5).

TESTING AND COMMISSIONING
After completing the installation, the Heating Contractor
should demonstrate to the user, the operation of the
appliance and the routine flue operating method.
(i)
Check that the system is full of water and free
from air pockets. (Rayburn Cookmaster Plus
212S only).
(ii)
When lighting pull the flue chamber damper open
to maximum.
(iii)
Add paper and sticks with a small quantity of fuel
through the fuelling aperture onto bottomgrate
and close the firebox door.
(iv) Open ashpit door, ignite fuel and close ashpit door
when fuel is well alight with spinwheel on ashpit
door at required setting.
(v)
Allow the cooker to heat up gradually at first time
lighting.
FIREBRICK REPLACEMENT
The firebricks fitted to Rayburn Cookers are of first
quality manufacture, and providing the cooker has been
installed and used correctly will have a reasonable life.
They are, however, expendable items and in time will
require renewal.
The renewal of firebricks is not a major operation and
can be carried out by the average person.
Replacement bricks either in sets or singly can be
obtained from your Rayburn distributor.
