Instructions for installation
CAUTION: This appliance must only be installed and used in rooms with a means of
permanent ventilation, compliant to current Gas Regulations.
Installation of the appliance and its connection to the gas and electrical supply must only
be carried out by QUALIFIED PERSONNEL.
Before any maintenance or repairs are carried out, it is important to check that the
appliance is DISCONNECTED from the electrical supply. The Manufacturer declines all
responsibility for any damage arising from installation in breach of the regulations in
force or from failure to comply with Health & Safety Regulations.
Requirements for installation
For the proper operation of a gas appliance, the air necessary for the combustion of the gas must
be able to flow into the room naturally. The air must flow into the room directly through openings
in the outside walls. These openings must have an unobstructed cross-section not less than
2m3/h for each kw of power (see total power in kw on the appliance data plate).
This opening must be constructed so that it will not be obstructed from the inside or out, or
located close to the floor. The opening is recommended to be on the side opposite to that on
which the flue gases are discharged. If it is not feasible to provide these openings in the room
where the appliance is installed, the necessary air may be taken from an adjacent room,
provided that:
• this room is not a bedroom or a hazardous environment;
• this room has ventilation;
• the ventilation between the room where the appliance is installed and the adjacent room
has opening window/s and/or an external door.
L.P.G models must not be installed in a room or internal space below ground level, e.g. in a
Discharge of flue gases
All gas cooking appliances give off cooking vapours and combustion gases; it is therefore
advisable to have an extractor hood fitted above the cooker to discharge cooking vapours and
flue gases externally. Where this is not possible, an opened door and or window, or electrically
operated wall or window extractor is recommended throughout the cooking process.
Connection to the gas supply
The gas connection must be made in accordance with Gas Regulations. When installing, fit an
isolation tap upstream of the hob. The appliance leaves the factory tested and set for the type of
gas indicated on the data plate on the underside of the appliance. Make sure that the type of gas
to be supplied to the appliance is the same as that shown on the plate. Otherwise, follow the
instructions provided in the “Adapting to different types of gas” section.
For maximum efficiency and minimum consumption, make sure that the gas supply pressure
complies with the values shown. If the gas used is different from that specified (or variable) a
suitable pressure regulator must be installed on the supply pipeline.
The male gas inlet union (C) must be fitted
on the end of the gas rail, with gas seal (B)
between the union and nut (where
applicable) (A) that is attached to the
appliance as shown in the illustration.
Screw the parts together without forcing
them. Fit the union so that it points in the
required direction then tighten all the parts.
When making the connection, take care
not to apply stresses of any kind to the
Make the connection to the gas system using a rigid metal pipe, or with a stainless steel flexible
hose / catering hose complying with Gas Safe Regulations. If flexible hoses are used, take care
that they do not come into contact with the heated surfaces of the underside of the hob or the
casing of an oven built-in below.
When the installation is complete, always check all the unions are absolutely gas tight
using a manometer or Approved Leak Detection Fluid – Do Not use a soapy water
solution and NEVER use a naked flame to check for leaks.
Electrical connection
The appliance is manufactured to operate with a power supply voltage of 230V to 240V
single-phase. The connection must be made in accordance with I.E.E. Regulations and Laws in
Before making the connection, make sure that:
1) The safety circuit-breaker and the electrical system are able to withstand the load of the
appliance (see data plate).
2) The power supply system has an Earth connection in good working order in accordance with
the Regulations in force;
3) The socket or omni polar isolation switch used is easily accessible with the appliance
The wires in the mains cable are
coloured in accordance with the
following code:
Green & Yellow = Earth,
Blue = Neutral,
Brown = Live
If you wish to make a direct connection to the mains, an omni polar switch with a separation gap
between the contacts of at least 3 mm, with suitable R.C.D. / R.C.C.B., current rating for the load
and complying with the regulations in force, must be installed between the appliance and the
mains. The switch must not break a contact in the yellow/green Earth wire.
The Brown live wire (connected to the “L” terminal of the terminal board) must always be
connected to the live wire of the power supply.
The Blue neutral wire (connected to the “N” terminal of the terminal board) must always be
connected to the neutral wire of the power supply.
In all cases, the power supply lead must be positioned so that it does not reach a temperature
50oC above the room temperature at any point.
Replacing the power supply lead
If the lead has to be replaced, only HO5RR-F or HO5RN-F type cables suitable for the load and
the operating temperature must be used. In addition, the yellow/green earth wire must be about 2
cm longer than the live and neutral wires.
Adapting to the different types of gas
Jet Size
Large Rapid
Gas intake connection
Electricity supply
Changing the gas injectors
1) Remove the pan stands.
2) Remove the burner and flame caps from the burners.
3) Use a socket wrench (B) to unscrew and remove the injectors (A), replacing them with those
corresponding to the type of gas to be used (see table above).
4) Reassemble the parts, reversing the operations described above.
5) Once this operation is complete, replace the data plate located on the underside of the hob
with one relevant to the type of gas in use. If the L.P.G. pressure of gas used is different from
that specified (or variable), a suitable piped gas pressure regulator complying with the
standard must be installed on the supply pipeline.
Setting the minimum flame or simmer settings
Light the burner as previously described.
Turn the tap to the minimum flame position.
Remove the control knobs (M).
Use a long thin straight screwdriver (D) to turn the by-pass screw (C) located down the centre
of the tap spindle (as shown). For LPG, turn the by-pass screw fully clockwise. The result
should be a small, homogeneous flame which is uniform around the entire burner ring.
5) Finally, check that the burner does not go out when the tap is turned quickly from the
maximum to the minimum position.
Building into fitted kitchen units
This hob is designed for installation into fitted kitchen units up to 600mm deep on the assumption
that the clearances indicated below are observed. The worktop height should be between 40 and
A. The height clearance to the underside of a chimney hood not less than 750mm (a).
B. Any combustible surface taller than the height of the hob itself must be at least 150mm
away from the opening into which the hob is inserted (b).
C. The clearance from the wall, minimum gap of 65mm (C).
Installation options
When fitting a gas hob above a drawer or standard housing unit, suitable precautions must be
taken to prevent contact with the casing of the hob, which becomes very hot during operation.
The recommended method for overcoming this problem is to fix a wooden panel within the
cabinet at a distance of 15mm below the underside of the hob (see fig 1). This panel must have
adequate ventilation to the rear.
Ventilation slot
Fig 1
The panel underneath the hob must be easily removable to allow for any servicing requirements.
Option 2:
If installing this appliance above an oven it is necessary to remove the front cross rail of the oven
housing unit to provide adequate ventilation within the cabinetry.
Installation dimensions
A = W557mm
B = D477mm
Inserting and fixing the hob
Before inserting the hob into the work surface, place the adhesive seal (a) around the underside
edge of the hob. It is important to fix this gasket evenly, without gaps or overlapping to prevent
liquids from seeping underneath the hob.
1) Remove the pan stands and the burner caps then turn the hob upside down,
taking care not to damage the ignition plugs and the thermocouples.
2) Place the gasket around the bottom edge of the hob as shown in the illustration
overleaf (left).
3) Place the hob in the installation opening and push it down so that the hob is
resting firmly on the cabinet.
4) Secure the hob in position using the fixing brackets supplied.
