• Any other statutory regulations
Refer to the AGA Installation Code for piping size details.
These built-in hobs are intended to be inserted in a
benchtop cutout.
Only an officially authorised technician should connect
the appliance.
Before you begin, turn off the gas and electricity supply.
Installation dimensions are shown in Fig.1.
/ max 60
Before connecting the unit, check whether the local
connection conditions (type of gas) are compatible with
the unit’s setting. Observe any special conditions imposed
by local suppliers (utilities). The specifications of this
cooktop are stated on the data label located on the
bottom of the cooktop base.
A duplicate data label is supplied for adhesion to
an accessible location near the hotplate if the data
label on the base of the hotplate cannot be
accessed when the hotplate is installed.
6
Clearances
A range hood fitted above the top must be installed
according to the installation instructions for the range
hood. A minimum distance of 650 mm is required for a
range hood and 750 mm for an exhaust fan.
Any adjoining wall surface situated within 200mm from the
edge of any hob burner must be a suitable non-combustible material for a height of 150mm for the entire
length of the hob. Any combustible construction above
the hotplate must be at least 650mm above the top of
the burner and no construction shall be within 450mm
above the top of the burner .
A minimum depth of 50mm from the top of the worktop
surface must be provided for the appliance.
If the base of the hotplate can be touched, a protecting
shield must be fitted. This shield must be at least
10mm from the lowest part of the hotplate and must
be capable of withstanding the appliance temperatures.

Installation procedure:
Side clearances: If the distance measured from the
periphery of the nearest burner to any vertical surface
is less than 200 mm, the surface shall be protected in
accordance with clauses 5.12.1.1 & 5.12.1.2 of AS 5601.
1. For cutout dimensions and clearances refer Fig.1.
2. a) If the clamps and the selfadhesive seal (lower edge
of the hob) are already fitted (depending on the model),
do not under any circumstance remove them. The seal
keeps the entire work surface watertight and prevents
spilage from leaking into cupboards underneath. Slightly
losen the retaining screws of the clamps positioned at
the bottom of the cooktop.
b) If the clamps and the selfadhesive seal have not
been fitted in the factory, remove the pan support and
the gas burner covers from your cooking hob and turn it
upside down. Now fit the selfadhesive seal supplied
with the appliance onto the lower edge of the hob. Take
the clamps and screw them into the lower point designed
for this purpose. See Fig. 3.

Installation continued
Connection
Electrical:
An electrical 10 amp socket needs to be within 1 m of the
hotplate to allow electrical connection. The socket must remain
accessible after installation of the appliance.
Important note:
This appliance is connected to the mains (240 VAC) by means
of the connecting lead which must be fixed to the kitchen unit
to prevent it from coming into contact with hot parts of the hob
(or an oven installed underneath) and remain accessible after
installation of the cooktop. When making this connection make
sure that the lead cannot come into contact with hot parts
of the hob.
Important: This appliance must be earthed. When connecting
the cooktop ensure that the earth wire is connected first and
that all wires are connected to the correct terminals.
Gas:
During the planning stage, consider the position of supply
connections.
The hob must be connected to the gas supply with upstream
connection of an isolation valve in accordance with the respectively valid regulations. We recommend that the isolation valve
be fitted prior to the cooktop to enable isolation of cooktop
from gas supply. The valve must be easily accessible at all
times.
To find out the factory set gas type, see bottom of cooktop next
to gas connection.
Remove plastic cap from gas supply line prior to installation.
Fit regulator (N.G.) or a test point (Universal LPG) directly to
the R1/2" connection as per Fig. 5. and Fig. 6.
Direction of gas flow is indicated on the rear of the regulator.
For position of the inlet connection refer Fig.1.
Use pipe compound or thread sealant, properly theaded pipes
and careful assembly procedure so that there is no cross
threading, etc., which might cause damage or leakage.
Make sure that all connections peformed are free of leakage.
In either of the cases, do not move or twist the L-tube from its
factory-set position.
If for some reason, the L-tube should be twisted, it is necessary
to make sure that this area is properly sealed. Make sure that
all connections performed are free of leakage.
The manufacture does not accept any liability for leakage on
connections performed by the installer or if the L-tube is moved
or twisted.

If the ignition sparkers are dirty, this makes the burners
harder to light, so you should keep them as clean
as possible. Clean them using a small brush and
remember that the ignition sparkers must be treated
very gently.
User Instructions
Boiling burners
Use “High flame” setting to bring the pan to the boil, then
adjust the flame between “High flame” and “Low flame”
to maintain the required pan temperature.
Important:
The use of a cooktop leads to the production of heat and
moisture in the kitchen .For this reason make sure that
the room is properly ventilated.Keep natural ventilation
openings, such as windows, open or provide a
mechanical ventilation device(e.g. a range hood or
overhead exhaust fan). An orangy flame is normal and
simply indicates the presence of salt in the atmosphere
(from cooking). If the flame has yellow patches, this is
not a fault (of any kind).
For safety and economic gas usage you should always
use the correct pan on the correct burner.Flames should
not protrude beyond the base of the pan. You will save
energy, time and money by always placing the correct
