Make sure that the area is sufficiently ventilated; open natural ventilation openings or fit a mechanical ventilator (extractor). When the hob is used for longer periods extra ventilation may be needed, such as an open window or a higher setting on the ventilator (extractor). } Never cover ventilation openings in the kitchen. } Do not block the combustion air openings at the rear of the hotplate. } Do not spray aerosols in the vicinity of the appliance while in operation. } Where the appliance may be installed in marine craft or caravans it shall not be used as a space heater. use ] } This cooking appliance is designed for household use. It should only be used for preparing meals. } Do not use the appliance to heat the kitchen. This will produce a damp atmosphere. pans ] } Use pans with a diameter of between 12 and 28 cm. } Smaller pans will be unstable, and larger pans may cause walls or knobs to overheat. Using pans which are too big may deform the control knobs or discolour the walls. This is not covered by the guarantee. flambéeing under extractor hood ] } } Never flambe under an extractor. The high flames can cause fire. Even if the ventilator is switched off. ] } Only appliances equipped with an electronic igniter have a flex. check: the distance between pan and knob and the distance between pan and wall. } The distance from a knob or a non heat resistant wall is always greater than 2 cm. } If the pan is nearer, the knobs or the wall may become discoloured or deformed. check: that the pan supports are positioned correctly on the drip tray. } When the flame reaches the ends of the pan support, the flame could damage the enamel. } Discoloration of or damage to the enamel of the pan supports is not covered by the guarantee. things to watch out for 1 open the mains tap 2 plug the appliance in 6 lighting and adjusting 7 lighting ] } Push the control in and turn it to the full on position. The burner lights automatically. adjusting ] } You may set the knob at any position between full-on and simmer. flame protection ] } These appliances are fitted with a thermocouple.

In addition to using the wok burner for stir-frying, you can also use it for stewing, steaming and deep-frying small quantities in the wok. pan supports ] } The pan supports should have their narrow edges next to each other. When removing and fitting the grids, take care that you remove them by lifting them straight up and fit them by lowering them straight down, so that you avoid scratching the drip tray. } Be careful: always fit the wok support (hob T130) on the auxillary support at an angle of 45 degrees. A wrongly fitted wok support will become too hot, resulting in possible damage. saving energy wrong wrong do not use too small a pan ] } The points of the flames are hottest. If flames escape around the sides of the pan much heat is lost. cook with the lid on the pan ] } This can save on energy by up to 50%. use heavy pans ] } Thin and light pans will cause food to burn on the pan more easily. They will also lose their shape more easily and therefore become less stable. right } To use the gas as efficiently as possible it is best to use a pan with a large diameter. } If the base of the pan is thick it will take a little more time for the heat to reach the food, but the base will have a more uniform temperature. right 10 keep your appliance looking good ◆Regular wiping down directly after use prevents dirt from burning on and resulting in stains which are difficult to remove. 11 do don’t daily ] } Clean the appliance with water and a detergent or all purpose cleaner. } Avoid using too much water to prevent it entering the burner or ventilation openings. stubborn stains on enamel ] } Remove with a non-abrasive cream or a soft sponge. } Never use scouring powders, aggressive cleaning agents, green scours. stubborn stains on stainless steel ] } Remove with 3M cleaner for stainless steel or a non-scouring sponge. These sponges can be recognised by their white surface e.g. Scotch Brite no. 373. } Green scours contain scouring agents which can scratch stainless steel. The structure of the stainless surface is such that (shiny) spots may appear after polishing or scouring. } If stains cannot be removed, clean the hob with the proprietary HG barbecue grill & oven cleaner. Always treat the whole drip-tray, to prevent "colour differences". Always treat with a stainless steel polish/care product afterwards. Any spillage should be removed immediately, particularly red cabbage, apple sauce and rhubarb. These can leave permanent spots on the enamel or on stainless steel.

The hose should not be subjected to abrasion, kinking or permanent deformation and should be able to be inspected along its entire length. Unions compatible with the hose fittings must be used and connections tested for gas leaks. The supply connection point shall be accessible with the appliance installed. please note: The type of gas in the country for which the appliance is equipped is stated on the data plate. This appliance must be installed by an authorized person. This appliance shall be installed in accordance with the manufacturers installation instructions, local gas fitting regulations, municipal building codes, electrical wiring regulations, AS5601 / AG601 - Gas installations and relevant statutory regulations.' please note: Before operating the appliance, check the gas connections with a soap/water mix for any leaks. electrical connection The appliance is not suitable for connection with a flexible hose. } gas connection RC 1/2" 240 V a.c., 50 Hz - 0.6 Watt This hotplate is supplied with a plug & cord.

In view of the fact that gas hobs generate quite an amount of heat it is necessary, for safe installation, to allow a sufficient distance between the hob and non heat-resistant material (see illustration). } min. 600 mm for hob T120 min. 750 mm for hob T130 15 1 Make the cut-out in the work surface. Ensure that there is sufficient space allowed at the sides and at the back (see ”building-in dimensions”). 2* Make a hole in the side of the kitchen cabinet to enable the gas pipe to be passed through (see ”building-in dimensions”). 3* Place the hob in the cut-out. Check that the air inlets at the back of the hob are clear. 4 Secure the hob in position. The brackets clamp either at the sides or underneath the work surface. Tighten the bracket bolts sufficiently to ensure the under seal is seating evenly on the work surface. 5 Make the gas connection. Check the gas connections with a soap/water mix (see "Gas Connection"). 6 Put the plug in the socket (see "Electrical Connection"). 7 Before Leaving - Ignite all burners both individually and separately to ensure correct operation of gas valves, burners and ignition.
