LIGHTING THE BURNERS
•
•
•
•
-
To ignite one of the burners, turn the relative knob anti-clockwise to the maximum flame setting
.
Press the knob against the control panel to ignite the burner.
After the burner has ignited, keep the knob pressed for about 5 seconds to allow the thermocouple to warm up.
This burner safety device shuts off the gas supply to the burner if the flame goes out accidentally (because of sudden
draught, an interruption in the gas delivery, boiling over of liquids, etc.).
The device must not be pressed for more than 15 sec. If, after that time has elapsed, the burner does not
remain lit, wait at least one minute before trying to light it again.
NOTE: In case of installation of a hood above the cooktop, please refer to the hood instructions for the correct
distance.
The burner might go out when the knob is released. This means that the thermocouple has not warmed up enough.
In this case, repeat the operations described above.

Check the “gas type” sticker attached to the hotplate. Details of the injector sizes used are recorded on the data plate
located on the base of the appliance.
This appliance shall be installed in accordance with installation requirements of the local gas authority to the appropriate
installation code (AS5601).
Before installing the hotplate consider the location of the gas supply and routing the gas line. (Refer Fig. 1).
For ULPG models the gas supply for the hotplate must be regulated to a pressure of 2.75kPa. The gas inlet connection
fitting is ½” B.S.P female thread.
For NG models the gas supply is connected to a regulator which is supplied. The inlet connection has ½” B.S.P male
thread. IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT THE ELBOW ON THE APPLIANCE BE HELD FIRMLY WITH A SPANNER. DO NOT
OVER TIGHTEN. The regulated pressure for NG is 1.00kPa.
A manual shut-off valve must be installed in the gas line, in an accessible position external to the hotplate, so that in the
event of an emergency or service, the gas supply can be shutoff.
For gas inlet position of appliance refer Fig. 2 for NG and fig.3 for ULPG. After installing the gas supply and making all
connections check thoroughly for possible leaks. Turn all control knobs on the unit to “OFF” position. Open the valve
on the gas supply. Using a soap and water solution check each gas connection one at a time, by brushing the solution
over connection. Presence of bubbles will indicate a leak. Tighten the fitting and re-check for leaks. If it is not possible to
correct the leak, replace fitting. Under no circumstance use matches or flame for checking leaks.
Turn on appliance gas cock and light each burner. Check for a clear blue flame without yellow tipping. If burners shows
any abnormalties check the following:
Burner cap on correctly
Burner positioned correctly
Burner vertically aligned with injector nipple
In some cases the burners will fail to ignite immediately and will seem to 'blow's lightly when they do ignite, this is usually
due to air in the gas pipe which should clear itself within seconds of operation.
If after following the instructions given, satisfactory performance cannot be obtained, contact the local gas authority for
advice and assistance.
