PROVISION FOR VENTILATION
The room where the Cooker is installed should have permanent
ventilation as follows:
“Ventilation must be in accordance with AS5601/AG 601 - Gas
Installations. In general, the appliance should have adequate
ventilation for complete combustion of gas, proper flueing and to
maintain temperature of immediate surroundings within safe limits.”
- Do not install in a bed-sitting room, a bathroom or shower room.
If there is another fuel burning appliance in the same room, a
higher level of ventilation will be required, you should consults
" the safety requirements".
In addition to the above, during prolonged use, opening a window
in the same room is recommended. This will avoid the build up
of excessive moisture and condensation.

Note:
The cooker is fitted with 4 legs for an eventual alignment in height
with the furniture ( fig. 1B ).
POSITIONING
Important: Fix the chain located next to the gas connection on
both sides of the cooker to the wall to prevent the cooker from
tilting. Both chains must be securely fixed.
Make sure that the wall surface behind the Cooker is noncombustable (will not catch fire).
Where a painted surface is adjacent, a fire retardent paint surface
is recommended. Wallpaper, wood, or fabric should not be used
behind or next to the cooker.
“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 maintop.” Ensure that a power and gas supply
are nearby. The Cooker should be located carefully so that the
heat produced by it has plenty of space to escape. The diagram
below shows an ideal configuration.

WARNING
It is not recommended to press push button for ignition if all the
burners are not located in the proper positions. The burner heads,
burner skirts and pan supports are removable for better cleaning:
Always ensure that the burner skirts and heads are replaced
correctly so that the burners function safely and correctly.
During the use of the appliance pay attention that water or any
liquid does not enter into the appliance through the holes of the
burners or around the rods of the valves or the push button
electronic lighter.
Water or juice will produce dangerous short-circuits and can
seriously damage the working of the Hotplate.
Always use pans with a flat base diameter, which are well balanced
and stable in use, a pan which overhangs the hotplate should not
be used. Avoid using old, misshapen pans, or pans which are
unstable when placed on a flat surface. Do not use “split pans”
as they are inherently unstable.
To save gas, always position pans centrally over the burners and
adjust the flames so that they do not lick up the sides of the pan
and only the base is heated. Always put lids on saucepans and
boil only the amount of liquid you use. When the liquid has boiled
adjust the setting to maintain a simmer. Do not light the burner
until the pan is in position and turn off the burner before removing
the pan. In hard water areas, descale kettles regularly. For safety,
keep saucepan handles turned to a safe position so they are out
of reach of small children and cannot be accidentally knocked.

HOW TO USE YOUR ELECTRIC OVEN
When you turn the control knob to this position, the light will be
on for all the following operations.
- Before cooking in the first time we reccommend that the oven
should be operated at 200° C for 30 minutes to remove any
manufacturing greases and odours.
- Do not place items or pan directly on to the oven botton.
- Foil should only be used to cover food and not oven shelves or
party of the oven. When used improperly will obstruct the air
circulation causing problems in cooking and/or harmful accidents.
Defrosting with fan
The air at ambient temperature is distributed inside the oven for
defrosting food very quickly and without proteins adulterations.
MULTIFUNCTIONAL OVEN
The oven is fitted with:
• a lower heating element;
• an upper heating element;
• a circular heating element surrounding the fan.
N.B.: Always set the temperature on the thermostat knob before
selecting any of the functions.
Natural convection
Both the lower and upper heating elements operate together.
This is the traditional cooking, very good for roasting joints, ideal
for biscuits, baked apples and crisping food.
You obtain very good results when cooking on a shelf adjusting
the temperature between 60 and MAX°C.
Oven thermostat knob
To obtain an oven temperature between 60°C and MAX°C, turn the
knob clockwise.
Fan oven
Both the fan and the circular heating element operate together.
The hot air adjustable between 60 and MAX°C is evenly distributed
inside the oven. This is ideal for cooking several types of food
(meat, fish) at the same time without affecting taste and smell.
It is indicated for delicate pastries.

OVEN DOES NOT WORK AT ALL
First, when the oven is equipped with timer, check appliance is
not programmed to turn on later. If it is, turn to manual setting (i.e.
hand symbol). If the button or scale on the timer remains in the
automatic position after use, the power supply to the oven will be
interrupted. Also, check your appliance is switched on at the
mains. Next check for an unexpected power strike by switching
on adjacent lights etc. Finally, check fuses and plug wiring. If all
these prove satisfactory, call engineer.
PROBLEM SOLVER
Any of the following are considered to be abnormal operation
and may require servicing:
Yellow tipping of the hob burner flame.
Sooting up of cooking utensils.
Burners not igniting properly.
Burners failing to remain alight.
Burners extinguished by oven door.
Gas valves, which are difficult to turn.
Your Installer should be contacted if you have any problems with
the installation.
Before you call a service engineer please check if the problem
is something you could fix yourself. The cause of the problem is
often a simple one.
LIGHT BULB DOESN’T COME ON
Check bulb for looseness or burned out bulb.
Note: bulb replacement is not covered by your guarantee.
SMOKE COMING FROM OVEN
If oven is still relatively new, this problem is invariably due to
protective oil on elements. Otherwise, the answer may be oil or
fat which has become deposited on the elements during cooking.
In either event, continued use should burn away the residues. On
future occasions, try to shield food with foil or keep it further away
from element, particularly when grilling.
THINGS TO TRY BEFORE CALLING FOR AN ENGINEER
Burner does not burn well
Is the burner dirty or damp? Try cleaning and/or drying the burner.
Appliance not suitable for your gas type? Check the identification
plate on the hotplate base.
Burner does not ignite
Do the burners spark when you press the ignition button? If not
is the power on? See ‘Checking the power supply’ section further
on. If the power supply is OK then there is probably something
wrong with the ignition system.
Are the electrode or burner slots blocked by debris?
Is the burner dirty or damp? Try cleaning and/or drying the burner.
Is the burner trim correctly located?
Are the burner caps correctly located?
Check that there is not a problem with your gas supply. You can
do this by making sure that other gas appliances you may have
are working.
CLOCK/TIMER DOES NOT WORK
Check to be sure range cord is plugged into outlet completely.
Check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Check for power
outage. Check step by step operating Instructions on previous
pages.
If, after checking through this section, you cannot resolve
your problem please call the number on the data plate fixed
to the front cover of these instructions for service and spare
parts.
When ordering please quote the appliance name, the colour
variant and serial number.
This information can be found on the data plate sealed inside
the front appliance drawer.
Pan supports
Aluminium pans may cause a metallic marking on the pan supports
which does not affect the durability of the enamel and may be
cleaned off with a metal cleaner such as ‘Brasso’.
Checking the power supply
First check the socket by trying out another piece of electrical
equipment in it.
If that works, renew the fuse in the hotplate plug. Use a 10 amp
fuse. If the fuse ‘blows’ again there is a fault on the hotplate. Do
not use a fuse with a higher rating. Do not carry out other electrical
work. Unplug the hotplate and tell your installer.
Power Failure
In the event of a failure in the electrical supply the hotplate burners
may be lit using a match.
Maintenance schedule:
To ensure the appliance continues to operate at peak performance, we recommend
a routine service call every 2 years for the life of the appliance.

WARNING
It is not recommended to press push button for ignition if all the
burners are not located in the proper positions. The burner heads,
burner skirts and pan supports are removable for better cleaning:
Always ensure that the burner skirts and heads are replaced
correctly so that the burners function safely and correctly.
During the use of the appliance pay attention that water or any
liquid does not enter into the appliance through the holes of the
burners or around the rods of the valves or the push button
electronic lighter.
Water or juice will produce dangerous short-circuits and can
seriously damage the working of the Hotplate.
Always use pans with a flat base diameter, which are well balanced
and stable in use, a pan which overhangs the hotplate should not
be used. Avoid using old, misshapen pans, or pans which are
unstable when placed on a flat surface. Do not use “split pans”
as they are inherently unstable.
To save gas, always position pans centrally over the burners and
adjust the flames so that they do not lick up the sides of the pan
and only the base is heated. Always put lids on saucepans and
boil only the amount of liquid you use. When the liquid has boiled
adjust the setting to maintain a simmer. Do not light the burner
until the pan is in position and turn off the burner before removing
the pan. In hard water areas, descale kettles regularly. For safety,
keep saucepan handles turned to a safe position so they are out
of reach of small children and cannot be accidentally knocked.
To tunr the burner OFF, turn the control knob clockwise to the
OFF setting (marked with a dot )
Automatic electric ignition
To turn on a burner, press the knob corresponding to the
selected burner and turn it anticlockwise to the maximum
position. Keeping the knob pressed, the electric automatic
ignition of the burner will be started up. In case there is not
electric current, the burner can also be lighted using a

HOW TO USE YOUR ELECTRIC OVEN
When you turn the control knob to this position, the light will be
on for all the following operations.
- Before cooking in the first time we reccommend that the oven
should be operated at 200° C for 30 minutes to remove any
manufacturing greases and odours.
- Do not place items or pan directly on to the oven botton.
- Foil should only be used to cover food and not oven shelves or
party of the oven. When used improperly will obstruct the air
circulation causing problems in cooking and/or harmful accidents.
Defrosting with fan
The air at ambient temperature is distributed inside the oven for
defrosting food very quickly and without proteins adulterations.
MULTIFUNCTIONAL OVEN
The oven is fitted with:
• a lower heating element;
• an upper heating element;
• a circular heating element surrounding the fan.
N.B.: Always set the temperature on the thermostat knob before
selecting any of the functions.
Natural convection
Both the lower and upper heating elements operate together.
This is the traditional cooking, very good for roasting joints, ideal
for biscuits, baked apples and crisping food.
You obtain very good results when cooking on a shelf adjusting
the temperature between 60 and MAX°C.
Oven thermostat knob
To obtain an oven temperature between 60°C and MAX°C, turn the
knob clockwise.
Fan oven
Both the fan and the circular heating element operate together.
The hot air adjustable between 60 and MAX°C is evenly distributed
inside the oven. This is ideal for cooking several types of food
(meat, fish) at the same time without affecting taste and smell.
It is indicated for delicate pastries.

The fan assisted grill replaces perfectly the turnspit. You can obtain
very good results also with large quantities of poultry, sausage,
red meat. Turn the thermostat control knob to the 200°C position.
Note:
All the functions mentioned above switch the oven internal light on.
A warning light on the control panel will stay lit until the temperature
is reached; after it will light up intermittently.
Always use the oven with the oven door closed.
Air forced lower heating element
The air which is heated by the lower heating element is circulated
by the fan which distributes the heat on the food.
This function can be used to sterilize food. This function can be
used between 60 and MAX°C
Use of the oven
Note: ovens with separate thermostat and commutator.
When the functions
are used, place the thermostat
knob between 180 ÷ 200°C as maximum temperature.
GENERAL

OVEN DOES NOT WORK AT ALL
First, when the oven is equipped with timer, check appliance is
not programmed to turn on later. If it is, turn to manual setting (i.e.
hand symbol). If the button or scale on the timer remains in the
automatic position after use, the power supply to the oven will be
interrupted. Also, check your appliance is switched on at the
mains. Next check for an unexpected power strike by switching
on adjacent lights etc. Finally, check fuses and plug wiring. If all
these prove satisfactory, call engineer.
PROBLEM SOLVER
Any of the following are considered to be abnormal operation
and may require servicing:
Yellow tipping of the hob burner flame.
Sooting up of cooking utensils.
Burners not igniting properly.
Burners failing to remain alight.
Burners extinguished by oven door.
Gas valves, which are difficult to turn.
Your Installer should be contacted if you have any problems with
the installation.
Before you call a service engineer please check if the problem
is something you could fix yourself. The cause of the problem is
often a simple one.
LIGHT BULB DOESN’T COME ON
Check bulb for looseness or burned out bulb.
Note: bulb replacement is not covered by your guarantee.
SMOKE COMING FROM OVEN
If oven is still relatively new, this problem is invariably due to
protective oil on elements. Otherwise, the answer may be oil or
fat which has become deposited on the elements during cooking.
In either event, continued use should burn away the residues. On
future occasions, try to shield food with foil or keep it further away
from element, particularly when grilling.
THINGS TO TRY BEFORE CALLING FOR AN ENGINEER
Burner does not burn well
Is the burner dirty or damp? Try cleaning and/or drying the burner.
Appliance not suitable for your gas type? Check the identification
plate on the hotplate base.
Burner does not ignite
Do the burners spark when you press the ignition button? If not
is the power on? See ‘Checking the power supply’ section further
on. If the power supply is OK then there is probably something
wrong with the ignition system.
Are the electrode or burner slots blocked by debris?
Is the burner dirty or damp? Try cleaning and/or drying the burner.
Is the burner trim correctly located?
Are the burner caps correctly located?
Check that there is not a problem with your gas supply. You can
do this by making sure that other gas appliances you may have
are working.
CLOCK/TIMER DOES NOT WORK
Check to be sure range cord is plugged into outlet completely.
Check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Check for power
outage. Check step by step operating Instructions on previous
pages.
If, after checking through this section, you cannot resolve
your problem please call the number on the data plate fixed
to the front cover of these instructions for service and spare
parts.
When ordering please quote the appliance name, the colour
variant and serial number.
This information can be found on the data plate sealed inside
the front appliance drawer.
Pan supports
Aluminium pans may cause a metallic marking on the pan supports
which does not affect the durability of the enamel and may be
cleaned off with a metal cleaner such as ‘Brasso’.
Checking the power supply
First check the socket by trying out another piece of electrical
equipment in it.
If that works, renew the fuse in the hotplate plug. Use a 10 amp
fuse. If the fuse ‘blows’ again there is a fault on the hotplate. Do
not use a fuse with a higher rating. Do not carry out other electrical
work. Unplug the hotplate and tell your installer.
Power Failure
In the event of a failure in the electrical supply the hotplate burners
may be lit using a match.
Maintenance schedule:
To ensure the appliance continues to operate at peak performance, we recommend
a routine service call every 2 years for the life of the appliance.

Ventilation
The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of
heat and moisture in the room in which it is installed. Ensure that
the kitchen is well ventilated: keep natural ventilation holes open
or install a mechanical ventilation device, (mechanical extractor
hood). Prolonged intensive use of the appliance may call for
additional ventilation, for example opening a window, or more
effective ventilation, for example increasing the level of mechanical
ventilation where present. For more detail see the Installation
Instructions.
