Instructions for the installation technician
CAUTION: This appliance must only be installed and used in rooms with
permanent ventilation to local standards.
Installation of the appliance and its connection to the electrical mains must
only be carried out by QUALIFIED
PERSONEL.
Before doing any servicing, it is important to
check that the appliance is DISCONNECTED
from the electrical mains. The Manufacturer
declines all responsibility for any damage
arising from installation in breach of the
regulations in force or from failure to comply
with the accident prevention regulations.
Installation premises
For proper operation of a gas appliance, the air
necessary for the combustion of the gas must be able to
flow into the room naturally. The air must flow into the
room directly through openings in the outside walls.
These openings must have an unobstructed
cross-section not less than 2m3/hfor each kw of power
(see total power in kw on the appliance nameplate).
This opening must be constructed so that it will not be
obstructed from inside or outside, or constructed close
to the floor. The opening is recommended to be on the
side opposite to that on which the flue gases are
discharged. If it is not feasible to provide these
openings in the room where the appliance is installed,
the necessary air may be taken from an adjacent room,
provided that:
·this room is not a bedroom or a hazardous environment;
·this room has ventilation;
·the ventilation between the room where the appliance is installed and the adjacent
room has openings.
Discharge of flue gases
Gas cooking appliances must discharge their flue gases through hoods connected
directly to flues or the outdoors. If it is not possible to install the hood (fig. B) an
electric fan must be installed on the outside wall or the window of the room, provided
it is possible for the ventilation opening
to be increased in proportion to the delivery rate of the fan (fig. C). For a kitchen, the
delivery rate of this electric fan must guarantee an hourly air exchange of 3-5 times its
volume. In both instances, the use of flues already used by other appliances to
discharge the flue gases is forbidden.
Connection to the gas supply
The gas Connection must be made in accordance with the
local standards. When installing, fit a safety tap at the end
of the pipeline. The appliance leaves the factory tested and
set for the type of gas indicated on the plate inside the
bottom guard, close to the gas connection pipe. Make sure
that the type of gas to be supplied to the appliance is the
same as that shown on the plate. Otherwise, follow the
instructions provided in the “Adapting to different types of
gas” section.
For maximum efficiency and minimum consumption, make
sure that the gas supply pressure complies with the values
shown in the gas used is different from that specified (or
variable).a suitable pressure regulator must be installed on
the supply pipeline.
The union must be fitted on the end of the gas train. Complete with GJ1/2” other
places refer to G1/2” threaded nut, fitting the gasket between the components as
shown in the illustration. The gaskets must comply with the local standards. Screw the
parts together without forcing, fit the union so that it points in the direction required
then tighten all parts.
Gas Conversion Kit (U-LPG to NG)
This kit contains...
- NG Gas Type label
- Auxiliary Jet Ø0.72mm
- Semi-Rapid Jet Ø0.97mm (Arda:Ø0.98)
- Rapid Jet Ø1.15mm (Arda:Ø1.23) - Wok Jet Ø1.5mm (Arda:4-Ø0.72+Ø0.81)
Converting to a different gas type
When converting from Universal LPG to Natural Gas ensure that the ULPG test
point is removed and replaced with the AGA Approved NG Regulator supplied in
this kit. The test point pressure must be adjusted to 2.00kPa
with the largest
burner operating on maximum flame.
Changing the jets
1. Remove pan supports, burner heads and caps.
2. Use a size 7 socket wrench to unscrew and remove the jets,
replacing them with those supplied in this kit. Ensure you use
the correct jet for the corresponding burner.
3. Reassemble the burner heads, caps and pan supports.
4. Fit the Gas type label supplied with this kit next to the gas
connection point and remove the existing label.
Setting the minimum level
1. Light one of the burners and turn the tap to minimum flame.
2. Remove the corresponding control knob.
3. Use a thin blade screwdriver to turn the by-pass screw
located
in the brass shaft as shown right. Turn the by-pass screw fully
clockwise then turn it anti-clockwise 1/4 turn for the Wok and
1/8 turn for all other burners. The result should be a small,
stable flame which is uniform around the entire burner ring. If
not, turn the by-pass screw anti-clockwise until satisfied with
the flame.
4. Check that the burner does not go out when the tap is turned
quickly from the maximum to the minimum position.
5. Repeat for each burner.
Connection
Make the connection to the gas system using a rigid
metal pipe and regulation unions, or with a stainless
steel hose complying with the local standard. If
metal hoses are used, take care that they do not
come into contact with mobile parts and are not
crushed. This must also be checked if the hob is to
be combined with an oven.
The gas intake connection of the appliance has a
“male thread.”
When making the connection, take care not to apply
stresses of any kind to the appliance.
When the installation is complete, always check
that all the unions are absolutely tight using a
soapy solution.
Never use a flame to make this check.
Electrical connection
The appliance is profited to operate with a power supply voltage of 230Vsingle-phase.
The connection must be made in accordance with the regulations and laws in force.
Before making the connection, make sure that:
1) the safety circuit-breaker and the electrical system are able to withstand the load
of the appliance(see nameplate).
2) The power supply system has an earth connection in good working order in
accordance with the regulations in force;
3) The socket or omni polar switch used is easily accessible with the appliance
installed.
Fit a plug suitable for the load on the power lead and connect it to a suitable safety
socket.
If you wish to make a direct connection to the mains, an omni polar switch with a gap
between the contacts of at least 3 mm, of suitable rating for the load and complying
with the regulations in force, must be installed between the appliance and the mains.
The switch must not break a contact in the yellow/green earth wire.
The brown live wire (connected to the “L” terminal of the terminal board) must
always be connected to the live wire of the power supply
mains.
In all cases, the power supply lead must be positioned so
that it does not reach a temperature 50oC above the room
temperature at any point.
One example of an ideal route is shown in the illustration.
The cable is guided by means of band clamps fixed to the
side of the cabinet, in order to avoid any contact with the
appliance underneath the hob.
Building into fitted kitchen units
These hobs are designed for installation in fitted kitchen units up to 600mm deep with
suitable characteristics.
Any cabinet side panels taller than the height of the hob itself must be at least 150mm
away from the opening into which the hob is inserted.
The dimensions of the hob and the installation opening are shown in the illustration.
Insertion and fixing
Before inserting the hob in the installation
opening, place the special gasket around the
bottom edge of the hob.
It is important to fix this gasket evenly,
without gaps or overlapping, to prevent liquid
from seeping underneath the hob.
1) Remove the pan stands and the burner
caps and turn the hob upside down, taking
care not to damage the ignition plugs and
the thermocouples.
2) Place the gasket around the bottom edge
of the hob as shown in the illustration on
the right.
3) Place the hob in the installation opening
and push it down so that the hob is resting
firmly on the cabinet, as show in the
illustration. The side springs will hold it in
place.
Installation options
On base cabinet with door
When constructing the cabinet, suitable precautions must be taken to prevent contact
with the casing of the hob, which becomes very hot during operation. The
recommended method for overcoming this problem is illustrated in Fig.1
The panel underneath the hob must be easily removable to allow the hob to be locked
in position and released in case of servicing work
On base cabinet with oven
The installation compartment must have the dimensions shown in Fig.2 and Fig.3 and
must have supports to allow satisfactory ventilation.
Two possible methods for avoiding overheating are illustrated in Fig.4 and Fig.5. The
electrical connections of the hob and oven must be made separately both for electrical
reasons and to simplify removal of the oven through the front of the cabinet.
Wall cabinets or extractor hoods must be at least 650 mm above the hob.

Lighting the burners
To obtain a flame more easily, light the burner before placing a cooking
utensil on the pan stand
To light a burner, proceed as follow: for Version with lighting integrated in
the control knob push the knob of the burner fully down and turn it
anticlockwise to the “maximum flow” setting symbol, or press the button
if the appliance has individual lighting.
●
After lighting the flame, keep the knob pressed for about 10 seconds: this
time is necessary to heat up the “thermocouple” (Fig.1-C) and activate the safety
valve, which would otherwise cut off the gas flow.
Then check that the flame is even and turn the control knob to adjust the
flame as required.
If you have been using the hob over 45 minutes continuously, please wait for
the burner cooled down 3 minutes before you need to re-ignite again.
If the hob fails to light twice in a row, then you should wait for at least 1
minute before you try again.
In the instance of a power cut, place a flame near the burner and proceed as
already described.
If the flame does not light after a few attempts, check that the “burner cap” and
“flame cap” are correctly positioned.
To turn off the flame, turn the control knob clockwise to the ● symbol.
Before removing pans from the burners, always lower or turn off the flame.
For correct use of the hob
For lower gas consumption and better efficiency: Use only flat-bottomed pans of
dimensions suitable for the burners, as shown in the table on the right. Also, as soon
as a liquid comes to the boil take care to turn the flame down to a level that will just
keep it boiling.

Clean the hob regularly with a soft cloth wet with lukewarm water and a little liquid
detergent. Do not use the following products:
- household detergents or bleaches;
-alcohol or other flammable liquid;
- soaped scouring pads not suitable for non-stick utensils;
- steel wool scouring pads;
- stain removers for baths or sinks.
If the hob gets very dirty, use specific commercial products.
Ignition plug
Automatic burner ignition is provided (when installed) by a ceramic “plug” and a
metal electrode. Periodically clean these parts of the hob thoroughly. In addition, to
avoid ignition difficulties, check that the cavities in the burner are not obstructed.
To remove deposits from the burner cavities, remove the cap and separate the two
parts. After cleaning, put the two parts back together and return them correctly to their
position. After washing, replace the hob pan stands, checking that they are correctly
positioned.
Routine maintenance
Have the condition and efficiency of the gas pipe and the pressure regulator (if
installed) checked periodically. If anomalies are found, do not repairs but have the
faulty part replaced.
