on the appliance, or in cabinets immediately above or next
to the appliance.
- use flammable or plastic items on or near the hob.
- use adapters, multiple sockets and/or extension leads.
- fill a deep fat frying pan more than 1/3 full of oil, or use a lid.
DO NOT LEAVE UNATTENDED WHILE COOKING.
- fry too much food at a time, especially frozen food. This
only lowers the temperature or the oil or fat too much, resulting
in greasy food.
- pull on the appliance or the supply able to unplug it from
the electrical outlet.
- allow power cables of other appliances to come into contact.
- with hot parts of this appliance.
- expose the appliance to atmospheric agents, such as
rain or sunlight.
- operate the appliance with wet hands.
- allow anyone to sit or stand on any part of the appliance.
- use misshapen pans which may be unstable.
- use round base woks directly on the pan supports.
- use fish kettles or large preserving pans across two burners.
- operate the appliance with wet parts of the body.
- operate the appliance when barefoot.
ALWAYS:
- make sure you remove all packaging and dispose of safely.
- check the soundness of the appliance after it has been
unpacked.
- make sure you understand the controls before using the
appliance.
- keep children away from the appliance during use.
- take care to avoid heat/steam burns when operating the
controls.
- make sure the controls are turned off when you have finished
cooking and when not in use.
- take care to avoid heat/steam burns when operating the
controls.
- disconnect from the power supply, and allow to cool, before
cleaning or performing maintenance.
- refer servicing to a qualified appliance service engineer.
- keep the hob clean as a build up of grease or fat from
cooking can cause a fire.
- follow the basic principles of food handling and hygiene to
prevent the possibility of bacterial growth.
- dry food thoroughly before frying and lower it slowly into the
hot oil or fat. Frozen food in particular, will cause frothing and
spitting if added too quickly.
- keep outside of pans clean and free from streaks of oil or
fat.
- place pans centrally over the burner making sure handles
are kept away from the edge of the hob and cannot be
heated by other burners/pans.
- keep any ventilation slots clear of obstructions.
SAFETY ADVICE
IMPORTANT - As with any cooking appliance there could be some fire risk attached to the heating of oil, particularly for
deep fat frying. Cooking utensils containing oil must not be left unattended (eg. to answer the telephone) on or in close
proximity to the cooking areas.
IN THE EVENT OF A CHIP PAN OR ANY OTHER PAN FIRE:
1. Turn off the burners.
2. Cover the pan with a fire blanket or damp cloth, this will smother the flames and extinguish the fire.
3. Leave the pan to cool for at least 60 minutes before moving it. Injuries are often caused by picking up a hot pan and
rushing outside with it.
NEVER USE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER TO PUT OUT A PAN FIRE as the force of the extinguisher is likely to tip the pan
over. Never use water to extinguish oil or fat fires.

Care and Cleaning
Before cleaning or performing maintenance on your hob,
disconnect it from the power supply.
•
To extend the life of the hob, it should be cleaned
carefully and thoroughly on a frequent basis, keeping in
mind the following:
• The enamelled parts must be washed with warm water
without using abrasive powders or corrosive substances
which could ruin them.
• The removable parts of the burners should be washed
frequently with warm water and soap, making sure to
remove caked-on substances.
• On hobs with automatic ignition, the end of the electronic
ignition device must be cleaned carefully and frequently,
making sure that the gas holes are not clogged.
Stainless steel can be stained if it remains in contact
with highly calcareous water or aggressive detergents
(containing phosphorous) for an extended period of time.
It is recommended that these parts be rinsed thoroughly
with water and then dried well. It is also a good idea to
clean up any spills.
Greasing the Gas Valves
Over time, the gas valves may stick or become difficult to
turn. If this is the case, the must be cleaned on the inside
and the regreased.
N.B.: This procedure must be performed by a technician
authorized by the manufacturer.
Troubleshooting
Before calling service for assistance, check through the
following list, there may be nothing wrong.
First of all, check to see that there are no interruptions in the
gas and electrical supplies, and, in particular, that the gas
valves for the mains are open.
If the burner does not remain on when set to "Low".
Check to make sure that:
• The gas holes are not clogged.
• There are no draughts near the cooking surface.
• The minimum has been adjusted correctly (see Installation
section, "Minimum Regulation").
If the burner does not light or the flame is not uniform
around the burner.
Check to make sure that:
• The gas holes on the burner are not clogged.
• All of the movable parts that make up the burner are
mounted correctly.
• There are no draughts around the cooking surface.
If the cookware is not stable.
Check to make sure that:
• The bottom of the cookware is perfectly flat.
• The cookware is centered correctly on the burner .
• The support grids have not been inverted.
If, despite all of these checks, the hob does not function
properly and problem persists, call Hotpoint Service (see
KEY CONTACTS, back page), informing them of:
- The type of problem.
- The abbreviation used to identify the model (Mod. ...) as
indicated on the warranty.
If the flame does not stay lit on a model with the
Flame Failure device.
Check to make sure that:
• You press the knob all the way in.
• You keep the knob pressed in long enough to activate
the flame failure device.
• The gas holes are not clogged in the area corresponding
to the flame failure device.
IMPORTANT:
Never call upon technicians not authorized by the
manufacturer, and refuse to accept spare parts that are not
original.

Installation
The following instructions are intended for the installer so that the
installation and maintenance procedures may be followed in the
most professional and expert manner possible. Important:
Disconnect the appliance from the electrical supply before
performing any maintenance or repair.
d) Liquidified petroleum gases are heavier than air and, as a result,
settle downwards. Rooms in which LPG tanks are installed
must be fitted with ventilation openings to the outside in order to
allow the gas to escape in the event of a leak. Therefore, LPG
tanks, whether empty or partially full, must not be installed or
stored in rooms or spaces below ground level (cellars, ect.). It is
also a good idea to keep only the tank currently being used in
the room, making sure that it is not near sources of heat (ovens,
fireplaces, stoves, etc.) that could raise the internal temperature
of the tank above 50°C.
Positioning the Hob
Important: this unit may be installed and used only in
permanently ventilated rooms in accordance with British
Standard Codes Of Practice: B.S. 6172 / B.S. 5440, Par. 2 and
B.S. 6891 Current Editions.The following requirements must be
observed:
Installation of Built-in Hobs
The gas hob is equipped with type X degree protection against
overheating. Therefore, the appliance can be installed next to
cabinets, provided the height of the cabinet does not exceed that of
the hob. For proper installation of the hob, the following guidlines
must be followed:
a) If the cabinet(s) located next to the hob are higher than the hob
itself, the cabinet(s) must be installed at least 110 mm from the
hob edge.
b) Hoods must be installed in accordance with the instructions
contained in the installation manual for the hoods themselves,
and no less than 650 mm from the hob.
c) In the case of the 600 mm cooker hoods, besides following
the recommendations in point b), the cabinets should be
positioned next to the hood at a height of at least 540 mm
from the top since this will make it possible to install the lid
and move it correctly.The cabinet should always be installed
at a height from the top which allows easy use of pots and
pans on the cooker.
d) Should the hob be installed directly under a cupboard, the latter
should be at least 700 mm (millimetres) from the top, as shown
in Figure C.
a) The room must be fitted with a ventilation system which vents
smoke and gases from combustion to the outside.This must
be done by means of a hood or electric ventilator that turns
on automatically each time the hob is operated.
Directly to the Outside
(exclusively for cooking appliances)
b) The room must have an air flow to allow for proper combustion.
This must be 2 m3³/h per kW of installed power. The airflow can
be created using an enclosed vent with an inner cross section
of at least 100 cm² which must not be able to be blocked. I the
appliance does not have a flame failure device, the vent must
have an internal cross section of 200 cm3³ (Fig. A). Alternatively
the room in which the hob is situated can be vented indirectly
through ventilation ducts as specified above, as long as the
adjacent room is not a shared area, a bedroom or present any
risk of fire (Fig. B).

installer. During installation of this product it is essential to fit an
approved gas tap to isolate the supply from the appliance for the
convenience of any subsequent removal or servicing. Connection
of the appliance to the gas mains or liquid gas tanks must be
carried out according to the safety standards currently in force, and
only after it is ascertained that it is suitable for the type of gas to be
used. If not, follow the instructions indicated in the section entitled,
“Adapting the Hob for Different Types of Gas”. If the hob is to be
connected to tanks containing liquid gas, use pressure regulators
that comply with current safety standards.
Important: To insure that the appliance operates safety, the gas
is regulated correctly and your appliance lasts over time, make
sure that gas pressure levels comply with the indications given
in Table 1, “Nozzle and Burner Specifications”.

Installation
Adapting the Hob for DifferentTypes of Gas
To adapt the hob to a different type of gas than that for which it
was designed, (see the sticker under the hob or on the packaging),
the burner nozzles must be changed, as follows:
• Remove the pan supports and slide the burners out of the
cooktop.
• Unscrew the nozzles using a 7mm socket wrench and
replace them with those for the new type of gas. (See table 1,
“Burner and Nozzle Specifications”).
• Reassemble the parts following the instructions in reverse order.
• On completing the operation, replace the old rating label with
the one showing the new type of gas; the sticker is available
from Hotpoint Service (see KEY CONTACTS, back page).
If the gas pressure is different than that prescribed, a pressure
regulator must be installed at the source, in compliance with national
standards governing the use of piped gas regulators.
Regulation of Air Supply to the Burner
The burners do not need a primary air regulator.
Minimum Regulation
• Turn the gas valve to minimum.
•
Remove the knob and turn the regulator screw (positioned
either on the side of the top or inside the shaft) clockwise
until the flame becomes small but regular.
N.B.: In the case of liquid gas, the regulation screw must be fully
screwed in (clockwise).
• Make sure that, when the knob is turned rapidly high to low, the
flame does not go out.
• In the event of a malfunction on appliances with the security
device (thermocouple) when the gas supply is set at minimum,
increase the minimum supply levels using the regulator screw.
Once the adjustment has been made, apply sealing wax, or a
suitable substitute, to the old seals on the by-pass.
