Operation
Hob Burners
To light a burner:
push the electric ignition push button which
is marked by a little spark ( );
at the same time turn the relevant control
knob anticlockwise to maximum position;
then adjust the flame as required.
If the burner does not ignite, turn the control
knob to zero, and try again.
To ensure maximum burner efficiency, you
should only use pots and pans with a flat
bottom fitting the size of the burner used (see
table).

As soon as a liquid starts boiling, turn
down the flame so that it will barely
keep the liquid simmering.
If the control knobs become difficult to
turn, please contact your local Service
Force Centre.
If you use a saucepan which is smaller
than the recommended size, the flame
will spread beyond the bottom of the
vessel, causing the handle to overheat.
Take care when frying food in hot
oil or fat, as the overheated
splashes could easily ignite.
Before any maintenance or cleaning
can be carried out, you must
DISCONNECT the hob from the
electricity supply.
The hob is best cleaned whilst it is still
warm, as spillage can be removed
more easily than if it is left to cool.
The Hob Top
Regularly wipe over the hob top using a soft
cloth well wrung out in warm water to which a
little washing up liquid has been added. Avoid
the use of the following:
- household detergent and bleaches;
- impregnated pads unsuitable for non-stick
saucepans;
- steel wool pads;
- bath/sink stain removers.
Should the hob top become heavily soiled, it is
recommended that a cleaning product such
as Hob Brite or Bar Keepers Friend is used.
Pan Supports
The pan supports are dishwasher proof. If
washing them by hand, take care when drying
them as the enamelling process occasionally
leaves rough edges. If necessay, remove
stubborn stains using a paste cleaner.
Ignition candle
The electric ignition is obtained through a
ceramic "candle" and a metal electrode (fig. 1,
letter C). Keep these components well clean,
to avoid difficult lighting, and check that the
burner crown holes are not obstructed.
The Burners
The burner caps and crowns can be removed
for cleaning. Wash the burner caps and crowns
using hot soapy water, and remove marks with
a mild paste cleaner. A well moistened soap
impregnated steel wool pad can be used with
caution, if the marks are particularly difficult to
remove. After cleaning, be sure to wipe dry
with a soft cloth.

Installation
When the hob is first installed
Once the hob has been installed, it is
important to remove any protective
materials, which were put on in the
factory.
Connection to the gas supply should be with
either rigid or semi-rigid pipe, i.e. steel or
copper.
The connection should be suitable for
connecting to RC 1/2 (1/2 BSP male thread).
When the final connection has been made, it
is essential that a thorough leak test is carried
out on the hob and installation.
Ensure that the main connection pipe does
not exert any strain on the hob.
