approx. 8-10 seconds, then let go.
15
How to use
How to adjust the flame
Wok ring
The burners can be variably adjusted
between the lowest and highest flame.
For added stability, especially for woks
with round bases, use the wok ring
(supplied).
Be sure to adjust the flame to a level
that does not jut out from under the
cookware. Because the edges of a gas
flame are much hotter than the center
of the flame, the tips must remain under
the bottom of the cookware. If the flame
is too large, excess heat will be
produced, which can damage the
handles on the cookware and cause
the risk of burns.
How to switch off
^ Turn the control knob to the RIGHT,
to "Off".
The gas supply is interrupted and the
flame goes out.
16
Make sure the wok ring is properly in
place, so that it won't move around.

– Choose cookware to suit the size of
the burner. In general, note that: a
larger diameter = a larger burner, a
smaller diameter = a smaller burner.
– It is better to use broad shallow pots
than tall narrow pots, because broad
pots will heat up more quickly.
– You can use any heat-resistant
cookware on a gas cooktop.
– When buying cookware, note that the
diameter given is typically the upper
diameter, rather than the bottom
diameter.
– Follow the recommended diameters
as listed in the Table. If the bottom
diameter is too small, the cookware
will be unstable. If the upper
diameter is too large, heated vapours
can extend out from underneath the
cookware, potentially causing
damage to the countertop, walls, and
appliance panels. The manufacturer
will not be held liable for such
damages.
– Whenever possible, keep pots and
pans covered while cooking. This
helps keep in the most possible heat.
– The burner grates supplied with the
appliance must always be used.
Never place a pan on the burner by
itself.
– When using a wok make sure that
the base does not touch the burner.
A distance of 1 cm should be
maintained between the burner and
the base of the wok pan above it.
– If you choose cookware with a thick
bottom, it will conduct heat more
evenly. Cookware with a thin bottom
may unevenly heat food and lead to
overheating in spots. It is important
to stir the food so it will heat evenly.
17
Safety cut-off
The gas cooktop is equipped with a
thermoelectric safety ignition. In other
words, if the gas flame goes out ( e. g.,
because of overflowing food or a draft),
the gas supply is interrupted.
^ To switch the flame back on again,
turn the control knob right to "Off"
then switch the burner on as usual.
The safety cut-off is independent of the
power supply. In other words, it
remains in effect even if there is a
power failure.
18
Cleaning and care
General
,NEVER use a steam cleaner to
clean this appliance. The steam can
reach the electrical components and
cause the appliance to short circuit.
To avoid damaging the surfaces, do
not use any
– cleaning products that contain
washing soda, acids/alkali, ammonia,
or chlorine bleach,
– lime removers,
Clean the entire appliance after each
use. Let the appliance cool down
before cleaning.
Dry the appliance any time water is
used to clean it - this helps prevent lime
spots.
To prevent changes to the stovetop
surface, promptly wipe away any salty
foods or liquids.
– stain and rust removers,
– scouring cleansers, e. g., scouring
powder, scouring liquid, pumice
stones,
– solvent-based cleansers,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– grill andoven sprays,
– glass cleaner,
– scouring sponges or brushes, e. g.
pot scrubbers,
– sharp objects
(they could damage the seals
between the frame and the
countertop).

NEVER clean the burner parts in the
dishwasher.
Instead, take off all the removeable
parts of the burner, and clean them with
a soft sponge dipped in warm water
and some dish liquid.
Wipe the immoveable part of the burner
with a damp cloth.
Gently wipe the ignition electrode and
the thermocouple with a well wrung-out
cloth.
The ignition electrode must not get
wet, or the spark will be extinguished.
After cleaning, dry all surfaces with a
clean, soft cloth.
Be sure to dry off all the flame openings
as well.
Over time, the surface of the burner
covers will become somewhat more
matte. This is normal and does not
represent any material defect.
^ Arrange the burner head b on the
lower part (base) of the burner d in
such a way that the thermocouple e
the ignition electrode f and the
retaining pins g align through the
holes in the burner head.
^ Place the burner cover b evenly onto
the burner head c, so that the
notches fit over the retaining pins. To
adjust the burner cover into place,
turn slightly left or right.
Once the burner cover is in the right
position, it will not move.
Be sure to assemble the burner parts in
the proper order.

SAFETY NOTICES FOR INSTALLATION
To avoid damage to the appliance, it
should not be installed until the
upper cabinet and exhaust hood
have already been mounted.
~ This appliance is not connected to
an exhaust vent. It must be installed
and connected to the power supply in
compliance with the applicable
installation requirements.
~3 The room will need to be at least 20
m in volume, with at least one door or
window opening to the outside.
~ The countertop veneers must be
affixed with heat-resistant glue
(100 °C), so that they do not become
deformed or detached.
The wall strips must be heat-resistant
as well.
~ Installation and assembly of this
appliance in non-stationary locations
(for example, aboard ships) should be
performed only by specialized
companies/technicians, to ensure that
the requirements for safe use are met.
~ Because there is the risk of
flameover, a gas cooktop should
NEVER be installed next to a
deep-fryer. A minimum distance of 12"
(300 mm) must be maintained between
these appliances. Other appliances
may be build in directly next to the gas
cooktop.
26
~ Storage cabinets above the cooktop
present a fire hazard.
~ This gas cooktop is not authorized
for installation atop
refigerators/freezers, dishwashers, or
washers/dryers.
~ Check to be sure that the gas line
and power cord will not come into
contact with any hot spots after
installation. Hot spots can cause heat
damage to the gas line and power
cord.
~ The power cord and a flexible gas
line must be arranged in such a way
that they will not come into contact with
moveable parts in the cabinetry (e.g., a
drawer) or be subject to any
mechanical strain.
~ Be sure to carefully observe the
clearance distances listed on the
following pages.
~ Never use caulking unless it is
explicitly called for in the instructions.
The sealing tape for the appliance
provides an adequate seal with the
countertop (see the section on "General
installation notices").
SAFETY NOTICES FOR INSTALLATION
Upper clearance
If there are various appliances with
different recommended clearance
distances beneath the exhaust
hood, e. g., a gas stovetop and an
electric cooktop, always choose the
greatest distance.
For an exhaust hood above the
appliance, the safe clearance distance
indicated by the hood manufacturer
must be maintained.
If there are no specifications from the
hood manufacturer or if flammable
materials (e. g., a hanging cabinet) are
installed above the appliance, the
clearance distance must be at least 30"
(760 mm).
The maximum depth of cabinets
installed above the cooktop must be
13" (330 mm).
27
SAFETY NOTICES FOR INSTALLATION
When installing a gas stovetop, the
cabinetry or walls to ONE side and to
the rear of the appliance can be as tall
as you wish. However, on the other side
there must not be any appliance or
furniture that is taller than the installed
gas stovetop (see illustrations).
You must ensure that the following
minimum safety clearances are kept:
– 4" (100 mm) to the right or left of the
countertop cut-out to the next closest
piece of furniture (e.g., tall
cupboard).

General installation information
Sealing
Tiled surfaces
NEVER use sealing unless it is explicitly
called for in the instructions. The
sealing strip under the edge of the
upper part of the appliance provides a
sufficient seal against the countertop.
The grouting a and shaded area under
the cooktop frame must be flat and
even, so that the frame will lie evenly
and the sealing strip under the edge of
the upper part of the appliance can
provide an adequate seal against the
countertop.
NEVER use sealing between the
upper appliance frame and the
countertop!
It will hinder access to the appliance
during servicing, and the frame and
countertop can be damaged as a
result.
