CRITICAL ISSUES TO BE CONSIDERED
1. Beech Ovens must be installed with adequate
ventilation allowance both above and below the oven
including tube burner vent device. (Refer pages 37 – 42)
2. When using spray filters, ensure all necessary services
are
considered
and
installed
as
required.
(Refer page 58).
3. When using gas systems, ensure the correct supply
pipe sizes are installed to operate gas system on full
load. (Refer original drawing & page 119 - for gas usage)
4. For correct fitment of enclosures or facades, refer to
original supplied drawing for all dimensions including
critical recommended ‘Air Gaps’ for efficient insulation.
(Refer also page 19)
5. On ovens supplied with windows, ensure the supplied
vent device is connected correctly to the exhaust
system. (Refer page 62)
6. Avoid using combustible materials on the oven body
when building surrounding enclosures and facades.
(Refer page 13)
7. Oven installations require correct air flow requirements
with suitable temperature rated fans for correct
operation. (Refer page 31)
8. Ensure power supply to the gas control system is
correctly wired as the system is “Polarity Sensitive “.
(Refer page 64)
9. Follow correct “Heat-Up” procedures to avoid damage
to the oven when initially commissioning the oven.
(Refer pages 86 – 88)

WARNING: Improper installation, adjustment, alteration, service or
maintenance of a Beech Oven can result in property damage, injury or death.
Read the installation, operation and maintenance instructions thoroughly before
installing or servicing this equipment.
It is recommended that suitably qualified professional personnel install this oven.
Installation of the exhaust system must be in accordance with your local authority
guidelines.
The oven flue must be inspected at three monthly intervals to determine if soot, oil or
carbon deposits have occurred. If deposits have accumulated, these must be removed
to reduce the risk of fire (refer to the Maintenance section in this manual)
For your safety




Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid, or
similar liquids to start or ‘freshen up’ a fire in this oven. Keep all such liquids well
away from the oven when in use.
Do not in any way block the required air spaces with insulation or other materials.
Ventilation must be maintained.
Do not use products not specified for use with this oven.
Do not over fire. If flame spills out of the oven opening, you are over firing.
Disposal of ashes
Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tight-fitting lid. The closed container
of ashes should be placed on a non-combustible floor or on the ground, well away from
all combustible materials, pending final disposal. If the ashes are disposed by burial in
soil or otherwise locally dispersed, they should be retained in the closed container until
all cinders have thoroughly cooled. Local regulations may apply.

Preliminary checks
The oven is transported by truck, ship or plane to its destination. The oven is shipped in
two halves; the Upper Refractory and the Base. (The consignment document is a good
check to establish the correct oven weight.)
Upper Refractory on pallet.
(Weight between 500kg 1800kg)
Check carefully for transit
damage prior to unpacking.
(Document damage with
photos and report to supplier)
Do NOT remove clamps or Plywood
Oven Base on Pallet.
(Weight between 400kg - 1100kg)
Check that all parts and
accessories are present and free
from transit damage. DO NOT
remove plywood sheet from top of
oven, until base is in position for
final assembly.
Note:
It is strongly recommended to use proper lifting equipment for the
transportation and placement of these components. DO NOT attempt
to move these items by hand or by any other means that may damage
the goods or injure personnel.

Site Preparation
Once on the ground, the method of installation is dependent on the type of access. If
there is level access of sufficient width e.g. 1600mm (in the case of the round RND
1300 model) and no stairs, the oven can be moved by pallet trolley or forklift to its
desired location.
In the case where access includes
navigating through narrow corridors and
stairs, both halves of the oven must be
individually placed on their edge on a pallet
trolley (or similar) and moved through the
narrow passages.
Min 700mm
(Be sure to secure the oven to the trolley
during transportation using ropes or
strapping)
Leave timber supports on base
when transporting
The oven top and base will fit into a standard elevator. Be sure to check elevator load
capacity is adequate.
For installation purposes, we utilize thick sheets of ply to spread the weight of the oven
when we transport it over any surface which may be damaged by the wheels of the
trolley.
Beech Ovens

If there are stairs, there must be sufficient width to install the ’A’ frame to move the
halves up the stairs. If there are too many stairs or the corridor has corners that are too
sharp, or the opening is narrower than 700mm, the oven cannot be installed without
modifications to the building. Seek special advice from Beech Ovens Technical
Support. technical@beechovens.com.au
Investigation must be made to ensure that the floor both where the oven is to be
transported upon and the floor under where the oven shall be installed are sufficient to
support the oven.
Protection of Combustible floors
All Beech Ovens must be installed upon non-combustible material. The minimum hearth
extension areas to be covered with non-combustible material in relation to the door
opening of the oven shall cover at least the following areas:


750 mm to each side of the door opening.
900 mm in front of the door opening.
Combustible material
(e.g. Wood)
Non-Combustible
material
(e.g. Stainless Steel)
900mm
750mm
Door Opening
If you have an ash disposal container it must also be placed on non-combustible
material, have legs to raise it from floor contact and have a tight-fitting lid.

Oven Installation Procedure
Prior to installing the oven, visit the installation area and determine if there are
doorways narrower than the oven in an upright (normal) position. If there are no narrow
doorways, the oven can be kept in the horizontal plane i.e. not tilted on its side to go
through doorways. The oven has been designed to fit through any standard doorway on
its side and to fit in most standard elevators which are capable of the weight.
Lifting Positions
The above diagrams show the positions in which to lift the Base and Upper sections of
the Oven depending on access to the final installation position.
1. Lift here if the Oven Base is to be placed on pallet trolley on its side.
2. Lift here if the Oven Base is to be placed flat onto pallet trolley (pallet).
3. Lift here if the Upper section is to be placed flat onto pallet trolley (pallet).
4. Lift here if the Upper section is to be placed flat after having been transported on
its side.
5. Lift here if the Upper section is to be placed on its side to navigate narrow
passageways.
NOTE: Installation is to be carried out using suitable lifting equipment with
sufficient load capacity to suit the Oven weight. E.g. Hotel crane, mobile crane,
strapping, hooks, etc. Take care when lifting these sections.

Transportation
Take the Oven to the site.
Lift the Upper section from truck using hotel crane or
mobile crane of sufficient capacity.
Move the Upper section to kitchen. (Remove
from pallet and place on it’s side on pallet
trolley if it must go through narrow doorways See previous section - Lifting Positions)
Lift the Base section from truck using hotel crane or mobile crane of sufficient capacity.
(Remove from pallet and place on its side on pallet trolley if it must go through narrow
doorways - See previous section - Lifting Positions)
Do NOT remove plywood from top of Base.
Carefully remove the equipment stored
beneath the Base and store in a secure
location (ready for later assembly).
Now lift the Base onto pallet trolley. (On i’s
side if it must go through narrow doorways:
See previous section - Lifting Positions)
Remove legs from oven base to reduce its
width if necessary.
Carefully move this section of oven to
location (re-attach legs firmly with supplied
bolts if transported on its side).

Assembly
The procedure mentioned below uses an “A-Frame” lifting method for assembling the
oven. Other lifting methods may be used e.g. a fork truck or crane, however the
following principals still apply.
Assemble lifting frame in kitchen where space permits.
(The assembled oven must be able to be moved
within the kitchen area without obstruction later on the
trolley.)
Utilizing lifting point 3 on previous diagram, lift the
top free of the pallet and place on the ground, whilst
moving the base into position.
Lift the oven top to such a height to leave a
clear space underneath of minimum 1150mm to
enable the base of the oven to fit under oven
top.
(Lift the base of the oven to a horizontal position
and fit legs if previously removed.)
Move base under elevated top section using a lifting
frame or a stack of narrow pallets, being careful not to
damage any equipment under the oven; e.g.
burners, sensors, etc.
You may now remove the protective plywood from the
top of the base.

Place strips of 60mm x 13mm ceramic
insulation wool (supplied) beneath the top of
the oven where the top section touches the
base.
NOTE: No wool should come between the
steel of the top and base.
Position wool strips so that they
remain hidden when the two halves
of the oven are assembled together.
Align the top and base using
the positioning tabs welded to
the base, locating the rear tab
first. Ensure that the oven
mouth aligns with the cutouts in the base.
With the two halves together the oven is
now ready to have the supplied 50mm
ceramic insulation wool fitted to the
external surfaces.
The “A-frame” can now be dismantled
and removed.

The external surfaces (sides and top) of the oven are then completely covered with
ceramic insulation wool (50mm Superwool) using the high temperature “Kaogrip” glue
provided.
First cut all pieces required to
cover the sides and top using a
sharp knife. These should fit
closely up to each other with no
visible gaps to allow heat to
escape.
When all pieces are cut, place each piece on the floor and, one at a time, apply a
generous coat of “Kaogrip” glue to the wool as shown using a trowel or similar
application tool.
An important area to be aware of is directly in front of the exhaust
spigot of the oven. If the façade protrudes from the spigot there may
be an area between the spigot and the façade which is left uncovered
and vulnerable to soot and grease build up. This area is commonly
overlooked when constructing the oven façade and if not sufficiently
sealed creates a fire hazard.
Exhaust Spigot
Insulation between spigot
and façade face
Be sure to sufficiently seal
the area between the exhaust
spigot and the façade with a
metal infill to ensure high
temperatures and flame do
not enter the façade cavity

When fitting the ceramic insulation wool to the oven, be sure that the wool is firmly in
place and that all air pockets are removed. The glue will dry in approximately one (1)
hour depending on ambient conditions.
The oven is now ready to be moved carefully and exactly into its final position, using the
lifting frame and a pallet trolley (or similar).
Using a spirit level or similar, ensure that the oven floor is level.
25mm Air Circulation Gap
If required, fasten the legs to the
floor using approved fasteners for
the specific type of floor material.
NOTE: Fully assembled the oven can be extremely heavy. Be sure to use suitable lifting
equipment when moving to final position.
NOTE: A 25mm Air Circulation Gap is to be left between the ceramic wool
and any surface surrounding the oven after final installation. Failure to leave
this air gap will result in above normal temperatures being transferred to
exterior surfaces, causing a fire hazard.

Stainless Steel Hearth
When fitting the Stainless Steel Hearth (SSH), be sure that the top of the hearth is level
with the top of the floor bricks. Should the hearth be fitted too low, the floor bricks may
be damaged when using the oven. If adjustment is required, loosen the bolts used to
mount the SSH to the mounting tabs. Ensure these are tightened well when the hearth
is in its final position.

Flue Connection
Most Beech Ovens are supplied with either a Flue Transition or a Spray Filter. The main
function of the Flue Transition is to form a transition from the oven spigot to a standard
commercial flue duct connection point directly above the oven. The Spray Filter has the
same properties as the Flue Transition though it has the added feature of a fine mist
spray to remove particulate and dampen embers expelled from the oven. Both systems
have an integrated System Damper and two (2) inspection/ cleaning ports.
Both systems are of similar dimension though distinctively different.

Spray Filter
The improved Spray Filter, released into production in
August 2010, includes a removable cyclonic filter. The
cyclonic filter is permanently washed with a water
misting spray which is designed to adhere to
particulate such as soot, ash and grease and contain it
in the waste water, which is then drained away.
The basic function is outlined below.

The solenoid should be interlocked with the exhaust fan: When the exhaust fan is on,
the solenoid is open and water can flow - when the exhaust fan is turned off the
solenoid should close.
NOTE: The solenoid should ALWAYS be activated (open) whenever the oven
is hot – this includes approx 3 hours after shut down.
Waste Water Connection
1½” BSP fitting connected to rear of spray filter with 40mm (or equivalent) copper pipe
to be plumbed to the kitchen waste via a clearly visible tundish.
(The tundish should be clearly visible so that the operator can see that water is flowing
through the spray filter and it is operational)
NOTE: Do NOT use plastic or PVC pipe as the waste water can be warm/hot
and melt the plastic.
See System Connection section for connection locations.

Interlock System - Australian markets ONLY.
For all Gas fired Oven installations within Australia, there is a requirement by the
Australian Gas Association (AGA) for the Gas system of your Beech Oven to comply
with the Gas Installation Standard AS5601.
To meet this requirement, all Gas fired Beech Ovens are required to be fitted with a
“Power flue” system of exhaust extraction. This is to safeguard against spillage of
combustion product gases into the kitchen area. In line with this requirement, it is
required that the Gas system of the oven is interlocked with the performance of the
Flue. If the flue performance deteriorates (so that spillage may occur) the Gas system
should shut off and “lock-out” in such a manner that to re-start the Gas system, the
operator must manually reset the system. (This will give warning to the operator that

Beech Ovens supply a flue performance monitoring system that will fulfil the
requirement of this Standard. The system consists of an Interlock Thermocouple, a
mounting gland nut and a temperature controller, most of which are assembled into the
Gas control cabinet. The operation of this system is to monitor the temperature of the
exhaust gas at the top of the flue spigot above the oven mouth.
During normal operation with the flue fan operating, this area of the exhaust is around
120-170°C. This temperature is caused by a mixture of hot gases from the oven and
cool gases (air), from the area in front of the oven, being draw together into the exhaust
spigot.
Should the power for the system fail or deteriorate to an extent where there may be
spillage of combustion product from the oven, the amount of cool air from the kitchen
area being drawn into the flue spigot will decrease and the temperature in this spigot
area will rapidly increase.
The interlock temperature controller is preset to 200°C. When this temperature is found
in the flue spigot by the thermocouple probe, the system controller will interrupt the
power supply to the main oven gas system. This will in effect turn off the gas to the oven
burners.
The gas system will automatically relight and resume its pre-programmed operation
when the main control switch on the front of the Gas control cabinet has been reset.
(Turn OFF and turn ON.) Before this is done, to stop repeated cut-outs, the flue system
should be inspected to verify correct operation. (Refer to System Damper Calibration
in this Manual.)
The before mentioned 200°C limit is used, as this temperature is quickly achieved even
when the oven is started from cold and the fan has not been switched on. (In testing,
the Gas system will turn off in less than 2 minutes if this situation occurs)
Once the oven is hot, this interruption time is much less. 200°C is also a good flue
temperature to avoid because of the ability for spontaneous combustion to occur at
temperatures above this value.
The only additional work required outside of normal installation, is to fit the Interlock
Thermocouple probe to the Flue Transition (Adapter) above the oven mouth as
illustrated on the previous page.
NOTE: When coiling the cable to the Thermocouple, be sure not to kink or damage the
cable. The cable is to be routed in a tidy manner using the supplied clips and
cable ties under the oven base ensuring that it is not attached to other cables,
metallic or sharp objects.

Water Flow Sensor - UK market ONLY
For those ovens supplied to the United Kingdom with a Spray Filter, a Water Flow
Sensor is fitted to safeguard that the water supply to the spray filter is on and constant.
This device is fitted into the water inlet assembly and the electrical cable from the flow
switch should be connected to the dedicated plug on the back of the gas control
cabinet.
Because the water inlet solenoid should be connected to the exhaust fan (when the
exhaust fan is on the solenoid should be on/open) when the oven is switched on, the
flow switch should be activate which allows the oven to proceed to normal use.
In the event that the water supply is interrupted due to any of the following, the sensor
will close and the Gas supply to the oven will be stopped.





exhaust fan failing
exhaust fan being switched off (or not switched on)
water supply is interrupted (or not turned on)
spraying nozzles are blocked
in line mesh water filter is blocked
When the water supply has been restored, the system will then need to be manually
reset, by turning the main control switch to OFF, and then ON again. If the water supply
is no longer interrupted, the gas will turn on again and the system will function normally.
To test the system is working correctly, shut off the water supply to the spray filter. The
Gas system should shut down.
Should the sensor be faulty, replace and test before commencing normal oven
operation.

Exhaust Duct Design
The following section is for your guidance in establishing a design to suit your Exhaust
duct design requirements.
Exhaust ductwork should be carried out by a qualified, experienced trade team
with knowledge of local authority requirements. The following information is
supplied ONLY as a guide.
NOTE: The temperature of the oven is dependent on the size of the fire and the volume
of airflow to the exhaust duct. The ’exhaust flow’ is controlled by the system damper
and the fan capacity.
Access to the system damper is required for initial adjustment, for cleaning and
maintenance and for further adjustment should ambient conditions change.
Flue Material
Check your local authority requirements.
Also available and highly recommended are a variety of specialised proprietary flue
systems including stainless steel twin and triple skinned products. (Your local
mechanical contractor should advise you of available systems.)
Recommended Flue size
300mm square or equivalent cross-sectional area in round or rectangular section. For
ducted systems more than 6 metres long or containing more than 4 bends, professional
ducting advice should be obtained.
Nominal airflow required (at Flue Connection)
130Pa Static Pressure
Maximum total flue airflow - 700 litres / second for a single opening.
Maximum total flue airflow - 1000 litres / second for multi-door ovens.
The oven flue can be connected to any exhaust system with a much higher flow rate by
controlling the suction utilising a damper.

Methods of Exhaust ducting
The exhaust system is an integral part of the oven’s safe and reliable operation. It is
strongly recommended that all exhaust ductwork be carried out using a qualified and
experienced trade team with knowledge of local authority requirements. All ductwork will
require access for cleaning and require regular maintenance.
The following methods are to be used ONLY as a guide.
There are typically five (5) methods of exhaust ductwork for a Beech Oven. These
methods are using:





Natural Draft – Dedicated system
an Exhaust Fan – Dedicated system
an Existing Exhaust System – Shared system
a Spray Filter
Canopy method - Preferred
Method 1 – Natural Draft
Dedicated flue less than 15m in length with less than 3m
horizontal. Normally this system is used for Wood Only ovens
though if used with Gas, a special test should be performed to
ensure that no spillage occurs. Contact Beech Ovens Technical
Support for more information. technical@beechovens.com.au
Flue size 300mm x 300mm or equivalent (internal
dimension). The integrated system damper is designed to
control the draft. Access to the system damper is required to
allow small adjustments for varying conditions (In some
instances a fan may need to be fitted later if natural draft
does not work effectively or reliably.) Use of a weatherproof
vertical discharge capable of minimizing the effect of wind is
recommended. Allow access to duct for periodic cleaning.
Refer to local regulations for discharge and installation
requirements.
NOTE: Because of the residual build-up in the flue, it is highly
recommended that the flue be inspected after three (3) months and a
cleaning schedule be implemented as required.
Failure to properly maintain the flue, may result in flue failure and
potential fire hazard.

Method 2 – Use of Exhaust Fan
Dedicated oven system.
Optional high temp
sprinkler head connected
to sprinkler system
Flue size 300mm x 300mm or equivalent
(internal dimension).
For ovens that will be using wood fuel, we
recommend the use of a dedicated flue for the
oven connecting to a dedicated fan.
There are two methods of fan extraction,
(A) Low volume extraction. This is a very hot system
and is NOT recommended. As low as 150l/s can be
drawn through the system.
(B) High volume extraction. Extraction systems in
excess of 700l/s can be set up to extract approx
150l/s per door from the oven. With the use of the
system damper and the cool air make-up device
(Barometric Controller), cool air can be introduced to
add additional safety to the system by lowering the flue
temperature and increasing the flue gas velocity. This
helps to keep the system clean and efficient.
(Wherever possible, it is recommended that cool air from an outside environment
be connected to the cool air make-up device. Consult your mechanical service
consultant to design connection.)
Method 3 – Use of Existing System
In some instances it is possible to connect the oven exhaust
exhaust duct. These are generally available in kitchens that
place for other appliances. Professional advice should be
compatibility of the existing system to accept the additional
inclusion.

Method 4 – Use of a Beech Ovens Spray Filter
Beech Ovens have developed a system to treat all oven exhausts with a water misting
spray and cyclonic filter operation. Included in the system is a “cool air make-up device”
(barometric controller), which further dilutes the exhaust to a much lower temperature.
The misting spray is effective in treating the 150l/s (or up to 450l/s for multi door ovens)
of oven exhaust.

Specification in this manual.
This spray filter system is applicable to all (and only) fan driven systems.

General Information on Flues
Due to the nature of wood fired ovens, the exhaust temperatures can be quite high and
sparks or embers may be present (hence fire danger should be considered.)
To avoid problems there are a number of options to be considered:
 It is always important to keep the flue system clean.

When firing the oven with wood, we strongly recommend the use of good, clean
hardwood fuel only.
 A build-up of soot and/or creosote in the flue is not good in any
situation. We recommend inspections every three months.
Through these regular inspections you can develop a program
for regular cleaning of your system.
Flue Fires
To reduce the possibility of flue fire we recommend the following steps.
1. Keep the flue system clean. This includes the oven spigot (prior
to the Spray Filter if fitted) and all ductwork. Introduce regular
inspections to develop a program for regular cleaning of your
system.
2. For solid fuel ovens it is recommended they be connected to a dedicated exhaust
extraction system.
3. To further reduce the risk of fire, a high temperature sprinkler head can be
installed into the duct, connected to a constant/ secure water supply. This can be
included on any flue system. Contact your local fire safety consultant for more
information.
4. Where possible, if connecting to a communal kitchen extraction system, connect
oven to ducting from the dishwasher canopy.
5. For additional safety, use a Beech Oven Spray Filter.
6. Cool air from the ceiling void, restaurant or ideally from outside the building can
be introduced into the Cool Air make-up inlet.
7. Where possible, install the oven under a recommended canopy exhaust system.

Possible cause of Flue fire
Flue fires are primarily due to poor maintenance and the lack of a
rigid cleaning schedule. Most flue fires can be prevented by
implementing a regular and thorough maintenance schedule as
outlined in the Maintenance section of the Installation and
Operation Manual.
The illustration below outlines the possible cause of a flue
fire and highlights the most vulnerable area which
requires regular cleaning and maintenance.
Although all Spray Filters supplied from July 2010 are
designed to prevent the spread of fire past the
cyclonic filter, this should not be assumed to be a
fire blocking mechanism. Fire prevention by
regular maintenance and cleaning is always best
practise.
2. The fire, fuelled by a residual build up
of grease, fat and creosote, is drawn
into the Spray filter.

ESSENTIAL. WE RECOMMEND A 3

Possible cause of fire behind the façade
Poor sealing between façade and oven door leads to grease contamination between
façade and oven wall. This grease contamination is then ignited by a flash fire off the
grill.
Solution: Ensure that the area above the oven door and façade is fully sealed with a
fire proof material. (See Installation – Assembly section in this manual)
For added safety, install an Ansul sprinkler head directly above the oven in the event of
a fire in this area.
2. The fire, fuelled by a residual build up of
grease, is drawn into the area above the
oven igniting any flammable material in this
area.

Ventilation Requirement
A very important area which is commonly overlooked with gas fired Stone Hearth Ovens is access and,
most importantly, Ventilation to under and above the oven.
With many of Beech Ovens being gas fired there is either a Tube or Display burner mounted into the oven
floor, which needs a fresh air supply to function correctly.
A common problem with the oven installation process is that insufficient ventilation is allowed for. This
can result in the burner being starved of oxygen and not functioning correctly, or air is being drawn from
above or below the oven causing the flame to “disappear” below the oven floor, causing the burner to fail.
Both these cases result in poor oven operation and irregular temperature fluctuations.
Below is an image showing an example of the ideal location for Ventilation and Access panels in Beech
Stone Hearth ovens.
NOTE: The ventilation panel below the oven must be in the same room as the oven mouth
to ensure that a balanced air pressure is obtained within the oven cavity.

Tube Burner Ventilation
From October 2010, all ovens supplied with a tube burner will also be supplied with a
ventilation kit that should be installed as per the instructions below. This is designed to
eliminate any problems related to poor or insufficient ventilation resulting in the flame
being drawn or “disappearing” under the oven floor.
It is critical that this ventilation tube be installed correctly, and in the correct position,
to eliminate the risk of poor oven performance, erratic flame behaviour or flame failure.
In some instances the ventilation panels both below and above is not sufficient to
overcome excessive air movement from above and around the oven. This is commonly
caused by the ceiling space being used as a return air plenum for the restaurant air
conditioning and ventilation systems.

Even though a ventilation panel is fitted below the oven, the negative pressure above

installed in the floor of the oven, the hole in the oven floor is a clear passage for air to
flow, thus sucking the flame with it.

Gas Systems overview
The gas management system automatically controls and monitors the oven temperature
and can maintain an impressive display burner. The system features easily
programmable and adjustable components. The use of high quality, electronic ignition
and flame management components combine to give a simple and reliable system.
Gas Control Cabinets
There are three types of gas systems available. A single burner or Gas back-up system
(GB), a double burner or Full Gas (FG) system and an independent gas Char Grill (CG)
option. The Char Grill option is a fully independent system connected (in most
applications) directly to the reticulated Gas supply. (Australian systems require an
additional Grill Interlock.) The double burner system (FG) system is two independent
burners together with shared control components, ideally suited to larger ovens.
The Gas control cabinet has the following external controls and indicators:
Full Gas control cabinet
(Double burner)
Gas Back-up control cabinet
(Single burner)
Burner On indicator light
Main control switch
Digital Temperature controller
Fault/ Reset indicator button
The thermal input of the Gas system, depending on the application (oven size and

The Main Control Switch has three positions:
OFF
Both temperature controller & burner are off in
this position.
CONTROL
The temperature controller only is energized.
In this position the temperature controller will
read the current oven temperature (PV) and
the set point temperature (SV). The current
oven temperature (PV) is monitored at the
stone hearth (floor) level. The actual oven
temperature will be higher than indicated. This
is useful if firing on timber to easily see the
cooking temperature. This is a read out only and has no control over the oven
temperature with the control switch in this position.
ON
In this position the oven will start automatically, cycling the gas system to maintain the
preset temperature or set point temperature (SV) of the oven.
The operation of the gas flame will cycle automatically from Low Flame to High Flame
or Off as required to maintain the set point temperature.
See “Digital Temperature Controller” description below for more details.
Burner On Indicator Light
This light is lit when the ON position is selected on the main control switch and a flame
is preset inside the oven.
The main control switch should always be set to OFF when any service work or
inspections occur. Disconnect power from the wall socket. All service work
should be carried out by a qualified and authorized technician.

Gas Burners
There are three (3) types of burners available:
Tube burner
This burner mounts below the oven floor and fires
into the oven chamber through a floor brick with a
100mm hole. The advantages of this burner are little
oven floor space used and good back-up properties
for dual fuel use.
NOTE: Wood should not be placed on, or
lean against, the tube burner shroud – any
ash or debris that falls down the burner tube will
cause the burner to fail.
Display burner
This burner is primarily for full gas ovens and is used
for its spectacular visual appearance. The Display
burner has similar heating properties to the Tube
burner. It is not recommended for dual fuel as ash and
embers can easily contaminate the burner and Trielectrode.
Gas Char Grill
This option gives the added convenience of a slide
out grill drawer with a separate and independent gas
system of burners and radiants for grill cooking
inside the oven.
Both the Tube and Display burners are controlled by
the Gas Control system that monitors the oven
temperature using a sensor (thermocouple) located
within the oven space. This is connected to the Digital
Temperature controller which in turn controls a Flame Pack and a
Combination Gas Valve. The Char Grill is manually regulated.

Tri-Electrode/ Igniter Assembly
A high voltage spark, energized from the Flame Pack, (which also controls the Flame
Failure System) ignites the burner. This Flame Pack will also immediately close the
main valve (Combination Gas Valve) in the event of a fault, causing flame failure.
The Tri-electrode/ Igniter assembly includes 3 probes;

 Flame ignition probe
 Flame sensor probe
 Earth probe

NOTE: The Tri-electrode assembly shown is for the Tube burner. Size and connection
points for each Tri-electrode may vary between the different burner types.
It is imperative that the probes are correctly connected, as incorrect wiring will
cause damage to the Flame Pack.
Because the Flame ignition probe relies on the earth probe to create a spark, it is vital
that the Flame ignition probe, including its cable and connector, are not in contact OR
close proximity of any hot surface or sharp edges. If this occurs, a spark will not be
created at the spark point, resulting in the gas failing to ignite.
It is also vital that the “Spark point” and entire Tri-electrode assembly be kept clean and
free of foreign objects. If the probes are not clean a spark will not be created.

Duck Oven Thermocouple
The Duck Oven thermocouple is located directly below the spotlight and is accessed
using the spotlight access panel. It is located here to give a true indication of the
temperature where the ducks are situated in the oven, unlike a pizza oven which has
the thermocouple in the floor to sense the temperature where the pizzas are cooked.
Be sure that the thermocouple probe does not protrude through the wall of the oven. It
should be located flush with the inner wall of the oven.

System Connection
The Gas control cabinet is delivered pre-set from the factory, though should be rechecked upon connection. Gas pressure should be checked as per the Flame
Calibration section in this manual. The following section explains the installation and
connection procedures for the Gas and Electrical systems.
Contractors Responsibility
Fitting the Thermocouple, Tri-Electrode leads and Gas line connection are all part of the
connection procedure. Always check for correct set-up for local gas supply. The system
will require earthed mains electricity 220-240V at 50Hz and a gas supply line for final
connection. Please ensure that the gas supply line is sufficiently sized to handle the gas
load.
Refer to the Gas Data plate located inside the Gas control cabinet.
All work required for installation must be carried out by approved persons and
comply with all local codes and regulations in force at time of installation.
Venting the Oven
With all ovens using Gas, to sustain a flame,
the oven utilizes primary and secondary air
(oxygen) from below the oven floor. An open
vent must always be made available to the
underside of the oven for this reason.
Ventilation must come from the same
room as the door of the oven. This is
usually incorporated into a removable
inspection or access panel at the front of the
oven, or at a convenient location as to allow
easy access to the underside of the oven.
The size of the vent should be a minimum
of 600mm x 600mm.

The gas system is fully automatic and when switched to ON sends a high voltage spark
to the gas burner head. It continues to spark for 6-10 seconds. The flame will light
automatically, heating up the oven space on high flame, then drop to low flame once set
point temperature (SV) is reached.
(If the burner does not ignite in 6-10 seconds, the system stops sparking for flame
failure protection. The white FAULT/ RESET button will light. Press the white FAULT/
RESET button for successive attempts. Several attempts may be required for initial
purging of the gas line.)
As part of connection, the Gas supply lines are to be purged of any air that may be in

System Damper Calibration
For those ovens supplied with either a Flue Transition or a Spray Filter from Beech
Ovens, an integrated System Damper is fitted. Correct adjustment of the System
Damper is an extremely important part of commissioning to ensure oven efficiency and
safe operation.
The following section explains the relevant variables in flue suction levels and the
methods used to correctly calibrate the System Damper.
Oven Draw (Suction) variables
The amount of suction is affected by the following;

Relative pressure of the restaurant/kitchen area which is affected by whether
there is fresh air inlet for air-conditioning, open windows, doors, ceiling voids,
nearby extraction canopies, vents or other factors which may give different
pressure regions about the oven and flue system.

Whether the restaurant/kitchen is open air and if so the effect of wind on the
oven.

Whether the exhaust is affected by prevailing winds.

The specific geometric layout of the duct work.
The quantity of suction depends on the design of the exhaust system. There are a
number of options:
Exhaust Design
Natural Draft
Forced Draft (fan) with cool air inlet (Door 1)
Additional Doors Including Char Grill (per door)
Exhaust Canopy
Air Flow
~ 150 litres/ second
~ 700 litres/ second
~ 300 litres/ second
As per manufacturers specifications
The above airflow rates are indicative only for fan sizing and calculation of duct air flow
requirements. Static pressure of 130Pa within the duct is required.

Cool Air Make-up check
It is strongly recommended that the cool air make-up device (Barometric Controller)
have access to well ventilated fresh air, preferably an outside air source. Consult your
mechanical service consultant to design supply. This is done to eliminate the
possibility of the cool air make-up device drawing air from the underside of the oven
causing a negative pressure in the oven cavity. This can result in flame failure and/or
reduced oven efficiency.
Before calibrating the flue, check that the cool air make-up device functions properly. It
is important to make sure that the flap can move freely and that it has not suffered any
damage in transport or during the course of installation.
To check the cool air make-up device’s function, close the System Damper fully and
check that the cool air make-up flap opens to allow fresh air in. When the fan is
switched off, the cool air make-up flap should then close. This may have a delayed
reaction.

NOTE: Before preparing to calibrate the System Damper, ensure that all the variables
that will effect the oven such as air-conditioning, windows and doors and all ancillary

ensure that the calibration will be true when the oven is in full operation in conjunction
with other equipment.

The A4 Paper Test
Without access to suitable measuring equipment, the most effective method to correctly
calibrate the oven exhaust is using the A4 Paper Test as explained below.
The A4 paper test has been developed to be a simple and effective gauge to determine
the draw (suction) at the oven exhaust spigot (top of the oven mouth). This is a common
and often overlooked cause of poor oven performance.
Too much suction causes the oven to lose heat & use excessive fuel. Too little suction
allows smoke and combustion gas to escape into the kitchen. There is a fine balance
between too much and too little. To adjust the draw, you will need to access the System
Damper quadrant adjuster installed in the Flue transition or Spray Filter connected to
the oven spigot.
Too much draw (suction)
Not enough draw (suction)
For Australian installations using the Interlock System (AS5601) the Flue
temperature can be adjusted using the System Damper to achieve a PV (Interlock)
of 130°C -150°C (max) when the oven is fully heated.
For all other systems, it is advisable to check the exhaust spigot temperature
when the oven is fully heated and operational. Adjust the damper to obtain 130°C
-150°C.

suction should NOT be so much that it will hold the A4 paper when folded lengthwise.
NOTE: It is acceptable to use either A4 or Letter size paper.

If the sheet falls from position the System Damper will need to be adjusted (opened

the damper.
To adjust, loosen

required air flow is
achieved.

With the A4 sheet folded lengthwise the suction should not be able to hold the paper in
position at the flue spigot at the mouth of the oven. If the sheet stays in position the
System damper will need to be adjusted (closed slightly) to decrease the airflow.
In the case of multi door ovens or ovens fitted with a char grill, repeat these instructions
for all doors. (For ovens fitted with a Char Grill, suction is automatically biased to the
Char Grill side of the exhaust spigot)
Careful work here will increase performance and help to resolve problems otherwise
overlooked. Remember, too much suction removes great amounts of heat from this
style of oven. Correct calibration is critical.
This test is simple and approximate. Additional calibration may be required should
spillage be observed or if the exhaust spigot temperature exceeds the recommended
130-150°C (max).

Ventilation Test
As mentioned in the earlier section Venting the
Oven, for all ovens with gas, an open vent must
always be made available to the underside of the
oven. To sustain a flame, the oven utilizes
primary and secondary air (oxygen) from below
the oven floor.
When firing the oven with gas, if the flame
burns erratically check that the
flame is not being drawn
under the oven and
Burner blow-back
leaking from the blowchute
back chute.
If flames are visible here, this
means there is an ambient pressure
imbalance. (Higher pressure in the oven –
Lower pressure below the oven)
If smoke or flames are visible during the Ventilation test, shut the system
immediately and refer to the section Ventilation Requirement.

System Balancing
Having checked that the oven is correctly vented and that the Flue is correctly
calibrated, in some cases there may be external air pressure differences that can affect
the performance of the oven.
In some instances an imbalance may occur between the space above the oven and the
space below the oven. This may result in air being drawn from within the oven to
compensate for this imbalance.
A direct result of this may be that the flame, or smoke, is being drawn under the oven
causing the flame to behave erratically and the ovens performance deteriorates.
In most cases this is due to two (2) possible causes:

Insufficient ventilation below the oven
In the case of insufficient ventilation below the oven, refer to Ventilation
Requirement in this manual.

Excessive draw from above the oven
If there is excessive draw from above the oven, this may result in the ventilation
below the oven being insufficient.
In worst case scenarios it may be required that the base of the oven be sealed
off to prevent any air being drawn from within the oven cavity resulting in the
flame being drawn under the oven.
The following diagrams explains excessive draw from above the oven and the
most common solution to this issue.

Flame Calibration – Sit Nova 826
The following section explains the calibration procedure for the Sit Nova 826
Combination Gas valve. The valve allows for use with both Propane and Natural gas,
however the jet in the burner will need to be changed and the data plate updated when
converting gas types. Conversion kits are available to purchase from Beech Ovens
Head Office (sales@beechovens.com.au) or your local Beech Ovens representative.
Note: Never attempt to convert gas types without first changing the burner jet
and data plate in the Gas control cabinet.

The calibration procedure is identical for Propane and Natural gas systems, though the
reader must refer to the General Technical Details chart for adjusted pressure
requirements.
Note: This calibration procedure should be carried out by an experienced gas
technician and is performed in situ with the system fully operational.
It is very important to follow these instructions to set up the Combination Gas valve to
achieve maximum performance. Each installation will vary and although the factory
setting will produce a flame, it is necessary to fine tune the valve settings. This is
standard practice for most gas appliances on installation.
For ovens using Natural Gas, the burner will (in most cases) have been jetted at the
factory to produce 80MJ with a supply pressure (outlet pressure) of 1kPa. (Refer to data
plate inside the Gas control cabinet for oven specific details.) This is the High Flame
setting. The Low Flame setting is set to a lower pressure after the High Flame setting
has been adjusted. When this has been done it is necessary to re-check the High Flame
setting.
Before going further, you should familiarize yourself with the Sit Nova 826 Combination
Gas valve to be aware of the location of the test and adjustment points.
(Refer to the identification diagram above.)
Setting High and Low Flame Pressure
Before calibration, check that all other kitchen appliances connected to the main Gas
supply line are running at maximum capacity. If flame calibration of the oven is done
independently of other appliances being in use, the following steps will need to be
repeated when these appliances are running to ensure the main Gas supply is capable
of the supplying the required flow.
To begin adjustment, the main Gas supply pressure should first be checked on the inlet
side of the valve to confirm that sufficient pressure is being supplied.
The screw for the Inlet (supply) pressure test point (4 in above diagram) can be
removed and an appropriate fitting or hose used to connect to the test gauge. This
should confirm supply pressure in excess of the required pressure of 2.0kPa for Natural
Gas and 2.75kPa for Propane Gas. Should supply pressure fall below these levels, gas
supply to the kitchen will need to be improved.
Note: Supply pressure above 5.0kPa will damage the valve. If supply pressure
is above 5.0kPa, a pressure regulator must be installed.
Replace the inlet pressure test point screw and tighten to 2.5Nm.

Flame Calibration - Char Grill
The procedure for calibrating the Char Grill flame is outlined below.
Note: This calibration procedure should be carried out by an experienced gas
technician and is performed in situ with the system fully operational.
Before calibration, check that all other kitchen appliances connected to the main Gas
supply line are running at maximum capacity. If flame calibration of the Char Grill is
done independently of other appliances being in use, the following steps will need to be
repeated when these appliances are running to ensure the main Gas supply is capable
of the supplying the required flow.
To begin adjustment, the main Gas supply pressure should first be checked on the inlet
side of the valve to confirm that sufficient pressure is being supplied.




Remove the control knob from the Gas control valve. This is a ‘press fit’ type
knob.
Connect a Gas pressure gauge to the test point as shown below. Test for
incoming gas pressures as listed below. (For Natural Gas, adjust incoming
pressure at supply regulator prior to Gas control valve)
With the correct pressure at the control valve, proceed to check the High and
Low Flame settings, using the relative adjustment screws as shown below.
When the correct flame settings are calibrated, remove the test gauge and
replace control knob.

Inspirator Calibration
The main function of the inspirator is to allow fresh air to mix with the gas before it
enters the nozzle of the burner. The amount of air that is mixed with the gas governs
how the flame will burn. The correct adjustment of the air/gas mixture is critical to
achieving a suitable flame.

Air/ Gas mixture disc.
By screwing the disc upwards,
it limits the amount of air that

After Preheating is completed, adjust the Air/ Gas disc on the inspirator to achieve the
following flame characteristics:

For the Tube burner, the flame should reach the roof of the oven.

For Natural Gas, all flames should be blue at the base with light yellow tails,

For Propane or LPG, the flame will be mostly light yellow. The Air/ Gas mixture
disc will need to be nearly fully open for Propane. (Deep yellow to orange is NOT
correct and will deposit soot on the roof of the oven.)

Preheating with Gas
Before the oven can be used for cooking it must undergo a Preheat or curing stage.
This is a gradual, low flame stage designed to thoroughly “warm” the oven prior to use.
This is common practice for all ovens and must be done to ensure that the materials in
the oven are slowly “cured” to reduce cracking. The oven should be preheated for at
least 72 hours. (three (3) days)
Once the oven has been commissioned and all installation work is complete, the oven is
now ready for Preheating.
For ovens with two (2) burners, leave one (1) manual gas isolation valve closed.
To preheat the oven, turn the main control switch to ON.
While on High Flame, manually decrease the flame size to approximately half (approx
150mm high) by closing the manual gas isolation valve. This will allow a lesser amount
of gas to burn, allowing a smaller flame.
Manual gas isolation valve in
half open position.
Handle Vertical = OPEN
Handle Horizontal = CLOSED
With the settings in place from commissioning, the oven will now run continuously,
automatically keeping the set point temperature (SV) at 100°C.
After day one (1) raise the set point temperature (SV) to 150°C.
After day two (2) raise the set point temperature (SV) to 200°C.
NOTE: It is vital that only a small flame is used to preheat the oven. A large,
fierce flame may crack the walls. Cracking can not be repaired, though will not
effect the longevity or performance of the oven.

Preheating with Wood
As mentioned in Preheating with Gas, before the oven can be used for cooking it must
undergo a Preheat or curing stage. This is best done by making a fire just as you would
build any fire for a barbeque. The best wood to use is anything hard, dry and dense
which is untreated and without paint.
To start the fire follow the following steps:
1. Place a flattened cardboard box on the oven floor just inside the opening of the
oven.
2. Scrunch up several sheets of newspaper and place them in the middle of the
cardboard.
3. Place kindling (small pieces of wood) on the newspaper.
4. Place some larger pieces of wood on top of the kindling.
5. Light the newspaper.
6. Once the kindling is satisfactorily alight and the larger wood begins to burn, push
the whole lot to the position in the oven where you will normally locate the fire.
(Either to the side or to the back of the oven)
This fire of approximately 400mm diameter should be kept going for at least 72
hours (three (3) days), to thoroughly preheat the oven prior to first use. It is important
to keep the temperature rise below 100°C per day.
After day one (1) raise the oven temperature to 150°C.
After day two (2) raise the oven temperature to 200°C.
NOTE: It is vital that only a small fire is used to preheat the oven. A large, fierce
fire may crack the walls. Cracking can not be repaired, though will not effect the
longevity or performance of the oven.
The purpose of this fire is to dry out the oven mortar slowly to reduce cracking.
Once this preheating is complete, you can operate the oven with just wood, just gas or a
combination of both.

Adjustments for Normal use
After the three (3) days of preheating are completed, some adjustments must be made
to allow the oven to function normally. The following section explains the adjustments
required to set the oven for normal use.

Return the manual gas isolation valve to fully open. Restriction of gas flow is no
longer required.

Reset the Digital Temperature control to the required temperature. (Refer to
Digital Temperature controller for instructions)

Read and understand the following section Firing up to Cook.
Ensure to retain this manual in a safe and accessible place. This manual is to be
available for maintenance and kitchen personnel.

Firing up to Cook
From cold, allow the oven approximately 4-6 hours to heat up initially, depending on the
size of the oven and the fuel type. Thereafter, warm up should take about 2-3 hours,
depending on the size of the oven and installation conditions. These times are indicative
only and may vary depending on site conditions, firing methods, size of the oven and
venting arrangements.
The oven temperature is basically controlled by the size of the fire or the set point
temperature (SV) of the gas system and the draft up into the flue system.
The flue suction should be sufficient to not allow smoke into the kitchen during normal
operation. It is a fine balance. When firing with wood, the time of maximum smoke is at
ignition time in the morning. (To reduce the amount of smoke produced when lighting,
dry the wood in the oven cavity overnight. Be sure to keep the wood clear of embers.)
Optimum temperature for pizzas is approx. 250-350°C. If pizzas do not cook in around
five (5) minutes, the oven is too cool and a larger fire may be required. Check the
troubleshooting guide if a larger fire does not increase the temperature.
The pizzas should be rotated and moved about to cook them evenly. The chef soon
becomes familiar with the radiated and reflected heat properties of the oven and moves
the pizzas around to suit these different heat zones.
Most restaurants place the pizza base directly on the oven floor although they can be
placed on trays for time enough to toast the base a little before finishing off directly on
the oven floor. Others leave the pizzas on trays for the whole process. This is a decision
for the Executive Chef.
The oven can be used for cooking foods other than pizzas and many chefs experiment
with different wood types to get interesting flavours. Food can be roasted in cooking
trays and fried in black metal pans.
If required, we can arrange the services of an experienced Wood Fired Oven chef for
training purposes.

Gas Control Cabinet Functions
Main Control Switch
The Main Control Switch has three positions:
OFF
Both temperature controller & burner are off in
this position.
CONTROL
The temperature controller only is energized.
In this position the temperature controller will
read the current oven temperature (PV) and
the set point temperature (SV). The current
oven temperature (PV) is monitored at the
stone hearth (floor) level. The actual oven
temperature will be higher than indicated. This
is useful if firing on timber to easily see the
cooking temperature. This is a read out only and has no control over the oven
temperature with the control switch in this position.
ON
In this position the oven will start automatically, cycling the gas system to maintain the
preset temperature or set point temperature (SV) of the oven.
The operation of the gas flame will cycle automatically from Low Flame to High Flame
or Off as required to maintain the set point temperature.
See Digital Temperature Controller description below for more details.
Burner On Indicator Light
This light is lit when the ON position is selected on the main control switch and a flame
is preset inside the oven.
The main control switch should always be set to OFF when any service work or
inspections occur. Disconnect power from the wall socket. All service work
should be carried out by a qualified and authorized technician.

Temperature Control Procedures
Typical cooking temperature for pizza is 250-350°C and for breads 200-250°C. The
burner controls on this oven have been designed to enable the operator to fire the oven
using Gas, Wood or a combination of both.
Using Gas only
In this situation the burner will start on High Flame (intensive flame) and heat the oven
to the preset (SV) temperature on the Digital Temperature controller. Once the oven has
reached this temperature, the burner will automatically turn to Low Flame (less
intensive, maintaining flame).
This flame will maintain the oven temperature until the temperature starts to fall below
the set point (SV) at which time the High Flame will cut in and heat the oven back to set
point (SV).
Should the temperature continue to rise on Low Flame, the gas burner will cease to
burn at approximately 20°C above the set point temperature. It will automatically start
again once the temperature falls below the set point temperature. This cycle will
continue as long as the oven is in the ON position.
Using Gas and Wood
NOTE: Wood should not be placed on, or lean against, the tube burner shroud
– any ash or debris that falls down the burner tube will cause the burner to fail.
The above mentioned cycle is the same if
using a combination of both fuels.
However, once the oven has reached set
point and turned to Low Flame, should the
temperature continue to rise, (due to the
burning wood) the gas burner will cease to
burn at approximately 20°C above the set
point temperature. The Gas system will
then be in standby mode, waiting for the temperature to fall below the set point
temperature. It will automatically start again once the temperature falls below the set
point temperature.
It is strongly advised not to burn wood on top of the Thermocouple or erratic Gas
operation will result.

Using Wood only
Using Wood only in an oven that has a gas back-up system is quite an acceptable and
common practice. The Digital Temperature controller can tell you the present oven
temperature (PV) when the operating switch is set in the CONTROL position.
This is very useful for gauging the fuel requirements of the oven.
Gas Ovens
The gas flame modulates from OFF, LOW FLAME and HIGH FLAME keeping the oven
at the desired set point (SV) temperature. (250-350°C)
Once the oven reaches cooking temperature the pizzas can be placed in the oven with
or without trays within 150mm of the fire and in layers out.
Combined Wood and Gas
When firing using combined Wood and Gas, if the gas back-up burner does not appear
to be firing much, it may just mean that there is sufficient heat from the wood fire to
satisfy the thermocouple, not requiring the gas burner operation.
Wood Fired Ovens
As described in Preheating with Wood, start a small fire in the mouth of the oven with
kindling and proceed making the fire with progressively larger pieces of wood. When the
large logs (100mm-125mm diameter) are burning, push the fire to the back or side of
the oven chamber.
To reduce the amount of smoke produced when lighting, dry the wood in the oven cavity
overnight. Be sure to keep the wood clear of embers.
As the wood embers reduce, more wood should be placed on the fire. When there
appears to be too much ash, simply drag this out and place in your steel ash receptacle.
There is, however, a surprisingly small amount of ash compared to the amount of wood
consumed. Most restaurants only clean out once a day in the morning at start-up. The
quantity of ash reduces when using better quality hard wood fuel.
NOTE: Removing ash should always be done with great care as hot embers
may be hidden in the ash.

Oven Maintenance
If properly cared for, your Beech Oven will give you many years of trouble free
operation. We recommend you consider adopting the following Preventative
Maintenance Service Schedule, which will ensure your oven operates at optimum
efficiency, saving you money on operating and repair costs, ensuring your business is
trading to its full potential.
It is critical to maintain the Beech Oven and associated equipment on a regular basis, to
avoid the possibility of a serious fire or malfunction.
Regular Preventative Maintenance Service will also save you money on loss of profits
from any down time.
Beech Ovens strongly recommends a three (3) monthly inspection of the Flue system
as to ascertain the levels of soot, grease and creosote build up during this period.
Through these regular inspections you can develop a program for regular cleaning of
your exhaust system. (Refer to General Information on Flues)
A minimum of 25mm Air Circulation Gap is recommended between the outer oven
insulation and any other material. It is of utmost importance that these spaces remain
free to circulate air. Checks should be made on a regular basis as to confirm these
spaces are maintained. These items are critical to the safe and reliable operation of the
oven.
Where additional options are fitted, such as the Interlock system (Australia Only) and
the Water Flow Sensor (UK Only), maintenance to these items will need to be included
into the following maintenance schedule.
The following maintenance Schedule is a summation of information contained within this
Installation and Operation Manual.

Task to be performed
Each morning before the oven is fired up, remove fire ashes
from the floor centre, using an ash pan and a shovel or
brush. A damp cloth may be used to remove any remaining
dust.
Clean the oven floor prior to cooking. Do NOT use water!
Cleanliness around the oven is essential. Ensure no debris
or rubbish is left around, under or in the oven area.
Ensure that a draft at spigot exhaust above the oven mouth
is detected when the exhaust fan is operating.
For ovens equipped with a char grill, regular cleaning of
the oven spigot is required, depending on usage. After a
suitable cooling down time, stainless steel grill plates, drip
tray and cast iron radiants should be removed for cleaning
and the remainder of the char grill should be wiped out.
Take care not to damage the gas pilot assembly.
Ribbon burners should be removed for cleaning and blown
out with compressed air.
For ovens equipped with a spray filter, the tundish drain
should be checked that water is flowing at a trickle rate.
Visually inspect the oven interior roof for blackness. Should
blackness become evident, the oven may need some
attention. If the blackness is from cooking foodstuffs, the
oven may need a period of high firing in excess of 450C, to
burn clean the oven cavity. If the blackness appears to be
from the gas flame, a qualified technician should be called to
service and adjust the system.

Visually check and clean any foodstuff, dirt or deposits from
burner with a suitable small brush. Take care not to damage
the tri-electrode over burner.
Carry out a comprehensive check of the oven, gas system
and exhaust, including spray filter (or flue transition) and
ductwork. Check that approved and inspected fire
extinguishing equipment is in close proximity to the oven.
Check correct exhaust airflow calibration and temperature at
the exhaust spigot over the oven mouth, using the A4 paper
test method. Adjustment of damper should not be
necessary, unless restaurant / kitchen conditions have
changed. Having the correct draw at oven mouth is critical to
performance.
Inspect and clean out oven extraction flue and ductwork, to
remove any accumulation of creosote, soot and grease
which may have occurred. If accumulation is present, it
should be removed to reduce the risk of fire. Ensuring
extraction ductwork is kept clean, will reduce the risk of fire.
Check and verify correct operation of gas interlock system.
When exhaust fan is switched off, the thermocouple probe in
exhaust duct should register a rise in temperature and shut
off the gas supply to oven burners.
Inspect high temperature cables from control box to burner
head and tri-electrode device. Ensure insulation is in good
order especially where cables may cross over metal
framework. Check cables at burner and end for any sign of
burning.

Tri-Electrode and Burner Maintenance
The most common cause of erratic operation of the Gas system is that the Trielectrode and/or burner becomes contaminated by debris. This may be in the form of
foodstuffs or ash deposited in the area in which the Tri-electrode and/or burner
operates.
The following instruction shows the procedure for checking the position of the Trielectrode and removal of any debris which may become present around the Trielectrode and/or burner. Adjustment should generally not be necessary, though
cleaning is common as part of regular maintenance.
Note: Be sure to turn off the power and Gas before any maintenance takes
place on the oven. Maintenance should be carried out when the oven is cold.
Tube Burner
To remove the Tube burner,
loosen and remove the burner
flange bolts (3-5 bolts).
Should the burner require
cleaning, remove the gas line
into the burner. This is a flared
connection and does not require
sealant.
Note: Be sure not to kink or
damage the Gas line whilst
handling the burner.
Clean, if required, by turning
upside down and blowing out
any debris that may have built
up in the burner nozzle.
In extreme cases, the burner
can be washed and scrubbed
with a brush. Use compressed
air for final clean.

Note: The Trielectrode is mounted
in a ceramic base
and is easily cracked if not
handled correctly. Always
check for cracks when
servicing this component.
Carefully remove the Tri-electrode and gently remove any
debris which may have built up around the Tri-electrode using a soft brush or rag.
Note: Be sure not to adjust the positioning of the Tri-electrode probes.
Positioning of these probes is critical for the correct function of the gas
system. See next page for correct positioning details.
As general maintenance, clear
any debris that may have
accumulated in the base of
blow back chute.

If the position of the probes has been altered, be sure that the Flame Ignition probe
and Earth probe have an approximately 5mm gap between them at the Spark point.
These two (2) probes should NOT be close to any other metallic surface or close to
each other, other than at the Spark point as shown below.
The Flame Sensor probe should be slightly off centre.
Flame Sensor probe slightly off

Display Burner
When using a Display burner, wood fuel should NOT be used. However, foodstuffs
and other debris can disrupt the correct operating function of the Tri-electrode on a
Display burner.
If the oven is cold and access is
possible, in some cases the Display
burner can be accessed through the
door of the oven. The Tri-electrode is
directly behind the burner shroud.
If access is not possible through the door, the entire Display burner assembly can be
removed through the base of the oven.
To remove the Display burner,
loosen and remove the four (4)
bolts in the rear support of the
oven base.
Should the burner require
cleaning, remove the gas line
into the burner. This is a flared
connection and does not
require sealant.
Check the condition of the blue
high tension/temperature leads
and insulting sleeve to the Trielectrode. Replace if
necessary.

Carefully lower the Display burner
from the oven base. Be sure not to
bump the position of the Trielectrode when removing and
replacing the burner.
With the Display burner removed the
Tri-electrode and/or burner can be
cleaned and/or adjusted.
Connect the leads securely to the
Tri-electrode correctly and be sure
that it is correctly adjusted before reassembly.
Incorrect positioning of the Tri-electrode is also a common cause of erratic Gas
System operation with the Display burner.
Correct positioning: A spark is
generated at the Spark point.
Incorrect positioning: A spark is
generated between the Flame
Ignition probe and the burner body.
Note: Be sure to check that all Gas lines, cabling and bolts are correctly
assembled and secured before turning on power and gas for re-start.

Char Grill Maintenance
As part of the daily maintenance schedule, the Char Grill should be cleaned
thoroughly after each service. The drip trays may need to be emptied during service
depending on the type of product being cooked. The upper drip tray is located under
the front of the grill drawer and is easily removed out of the right hand side of the grill
drawer. The lower drip tray pulls forward and out.
To remove the grill plates, roll the grill drawer forward and lift the grill plates out of the
grill drawer, one (1) at a time.
With the grill plates removed, the entire upper grill drawer can be removed for
maintenance if required.
Locking bar – under grill plates
Grill drawer
Lift the locking bar in the centre of the drawer and carefully pull forward. Try to keep
the drawer level when removing as to not damage any of the roller components.
NOTE: Do NOT place the entire drawer in a dishwasher or wash with acidic
cleaning agents. The drawer rollers contain bearings which can be damaged.

Window Maintenance
Some ovens have a viewing window accessory which enables the internal of the
oven to be viewed by the public to enhance the visual experience of stone hearth
cooking. In some cases the window may need to be cleaned as soot and smoke can
contaminate the inner glass.
Note: Only open the oven viewing window when the oven is OFF and cool.
There are a number of different cleaning agents available on the market, though the
method below explains a simple, cheap and effective method to cleaning the inner
glass.
Cleaning the Internal Glass
Using a sheet of regular newspaper, scrunch the sheet and lightly dampen the paper
in water. Apply the damp newspaper to some of the cool ash from the wood fire and
lightly wipe the glass to loosen the soot from the glass. When the soot is dissolved,
use a fresh sheet of damp newspaper to clean the remainder of the soot from the
glass.
This method also helps to prevent the build up of soot on the glass.
NOTE: Do not use any acidic or harsh cleaning agents to clean the glass, as they
could damage the protective coating on the glass.
The following page shows the sequence to remove the outer panes of glass to gain
access to the handle to open the viewing window.

8 . . .EXPOSURE CONTROL / PERSONAL PROTECTION
. . . Hygiene standards and exposure limits
Industrial hygiene standards and occupational exposure limits vary between countries and local jurisdictions.
Check which exposure levels apply to your facility. If no regulatory dust or other standards apply, a qualified
industrial hygienist can assist with a specific workplace evaluation including recommendations for respiratory
protection. Examples of exposure limits applying (in October 1999) to glass fibers in different countries are given
below :
3 . . . HAZARD IDENTIFICATION
May cause mild mechanical irritation to skin, eyes and upper respiratory tract.
4 . . . FIRST AID MEASURES
Skin : In case skin irritation rinse affected areas with water and wash gently.
Eyes : In case of serious eye contact flush abundantly with water; have eye bath available.
5 . . . FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Non combustible products.
Use extinguishing media appropriate to the surrounding fire.
6 . . . ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Avoid creating dust. Provide workers with respirators if necessary (see section 8). Follow routine housekeeping
procedures. Where possible, use a HEPA vacuum to clean up the spilled material. If sweeping is necessary, use
a dust suppressant and place materials in closed containers. Do not use compressed air for clean-up. Avoid clean
up procedures that could result in water pollution.

* Time weighted average numerical concentrations of airborne respirable fibers measured by the conventional
membrane filter method or gravimetric concentration of inhalable dust.
. . . Engineering controls
Review your applications in order to identify potential sources of dust exposure. Local exhaust ventilation, dust
collection at source, down draft tables, emission controlling tools and materials handling equipment can all be
used to control dust generation and dispersion.
. . . Personal protective equipment
Wear long-sleeved, loose-fitting clothing and gloves to prevent skin irritation.
Goggles or safety glasses with side shields may be worn to prevent eye irritation, especially in case of over head
working.
When it is not possible to reduce dust through engineering controls, employees are encouraged to use good
working practices together with respiratory protective equipment (RPE). For dust concentrations below the
exposure limit value, RPE is not required but FFP2 respirators may be used on a voluntary basis. For short term
operations where exposures above the limit value are less than a factor of ten, use FFP2 respirators. In case of
higher concentrations, please contact your supplier for advice.
. . . Information and training of workers
Workers should be trained on good working practices and informed on applicable local regulations.

10 . . . STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
Upon heating above 900°C for sustained periods, this amorphous material begins to transform to mixtures of
crystalline phases. For further information please refer to section 16.
11 . . . TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
. . . Irritant properties
When tested using approved methods (Directive 67/548/EEC, Annex 5, Method B4), fibers contained in this
material give negative results. All man-made mineral fibers, like some natural fibers, can produce a mild irritation
resulting in itching or rarely, in some sensitive individuals, in a slight reddening. Unlike other irritant reactions this
is not the result of allergy or chemical skin damage but is caused by mechanical effects.
. . . Respiratory toxicity
CMS wools have been tested for their biopersistence using methods devised by the European Union. The
biopersistence values measured exonerate CMS wools from carcinogen classification under the criteria listed in
nota Q of Directive 97/69/EC.
Subchronic inhalation studies on rats with CMS wools at high concentration (150 f>20µm/ml) for 90 days with
follow up to one year showed neither sustained inflammation nor cell proliferation. All parameters studied returned
rapidly to baseline levels on cessation of exposure.
In a lifetime carcinogenicity test, rats were exposed by inhalation for two years (5 days a week, 6 hours a day) to
CMS wool at 200 WHO f/ml. There was neither fibrosis nor carcinogenic response.
After service, CMS wools can contain various crystalline phases including some forms of silica (see section 16).
CMS samples kept at 1000°C for two weeks were not cytotoxic to macrophage-like cells at concentration up to
2
2
320µg/cm . In the same test, samples of pure crystalline quartz were significantly active at 20 µg/cm .
12 . . . ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
No adverse effects of this material on the environment are anticipated.
13 . . .DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
Waste from this product is not classified as ”hazardous” or ”special” under European Union regulations. Disposal
is permitted at landfills licensed for industrial waste. Check for local regulations which may apply. To prevent
materials becoming airborne, a covered container or plastic bagging is recommended.

14 . . .TRANSPORT INFORMATION
Not classified as dangerous goods under relevant international transport regulations.
Ensure that dust is not wind blown during transport.
15 . . .REGULATORY INFORMATION
. . . Classification among dangerous substances
Regulatory status comes from European Directive 97/69/EC and its implementations by the Member Sates.
According to Directive 97/69/EC the fiber contained in this product is a mineral wool belonging to the group of
”man-made vitreous (silicate) fibers with random orientation with alkaline oxide and alkali earth oxide
(Na2O+K2O+CaO+MgO+BaO) content greater than 18% by weight”.
Under Directive 97/69/EC all types of man-made vitreous (silicate) fibers are classified as ”irritant” despite the fact
that testing by the appropriate EU method (B4 in annex 5 of Directive 67/548/EEC) is providing no response and
would not result in irritant classification.
Under criteria listed in nota Q of Directive 97/69/EC, CMS wools are exonerated from carcinogen classification
because of low pulmonary biopersistence.
. . . Protection of workers
Shall be in accordance with several European Directives and their implementations by the Member States:
(a) Council Directive 80/1107/EEC as amended by Directive 88/642/EEC ” on the protection of workers from the
risks related to exposure to chemical, physical and biological agents at work ”.
(b) Council Directive 89/391/EEC ”on the introduction of measures to encourage improvements in the safety and
health of workers at work”.
(c) Council Directive 98/24/EC ”on the protection of workers from the risks related to chemical agents at work”.
. . . Other possible regulations
Member States are in charge of implementing European Directives into their own national regulation within a
period of time normally given in the Directive. Member States may impose more stringent requirements. Please
always refer to any applicable regulation.

. . . Precautionary measures to be taken after service and upon removal
Because high concentrations of fibres and other dusts may be generated when after-service products are
mechanically disturbed during operations such as wrecking, ECFIA recommends:
a) control measures are taken to reduce dust emissions and
b) all personnel directly involved wear an adapted respirator to minimize exposure and comply with local
regulatory limits.
These procedures will ensure compliance with local regulatory exposure standards for free crystalline silica. And
because devitrified fibers containing silica mixed with amorphous and other crystalline phases are far less
biologically active than free crystalline silica dusts, these measures will provide a high degree of protection
