Lighting the cooker
The ignition system works by means of a battery. Details on how to
replace the battery are given on page 26.
Grill and hotplate
To light:
1 Push in the control knob and turn to the large flame symbol (highest
setting), and press the ignition button immediately. When the burner
has lit release the button.
Warning: If the ignition button is not pressed immediately a build up of
gas may cause the flame to spread.
For your safety
Never cover the grill pan or grid with foil as this can lead to
grill fires.
Oven
To light:
1 Open the oven door.
2 Push in the control knob and turn it to gas mark 9, and press the
ignition button immediately. When the burner has lit release the
button. There will only be small flames at first.
3 Now turn the control knob to the gas
mark you want.
4 Wait until the burner is showing large
flames.
5. Close the oven door.
4
To turn off any burner
1 Push in the control knob and turn it to the off position. This is shown
by a large dot.

The grill
The grill is a high-speed grill. The instructions below tell you how to vary
the heat setting and how to change the height of the grid to suit the food
you are cooking. You should remember to turn the food regularly.
You should not use the grill to keep food warm as it will continue to
cook the food.
Heat control
The grill control gives two heat settings.
The control knob turns to the left from
'OFF' to 'HIGH' and then to 'LOW'. The high
setting should be used for fast cooking such
as toast. Use the low setting to cook thicker
food such as chicken after it has been
browned on the high setting.
Grill pan
The pan is designed so that you can pull it
forward but it will stay supported. To remove
the pan push it back as far as possible and
lift it off. Replace it in reverse order.
For your safety
After replacing the pan, pull it out to make sure it has fitted back
properly.
Caution
Accessible parts may be hot when the grill is used. Young children
should be kept away. Never cover the grill pan or grid with foil as
this can lead to grill fires.
Cooking positions
Most food should be cooked on the grid in
the grill pan. You can turn the grid over to
suit different thicknesses of food.
You can place some dishes straight on to
the grill shelf. This is useful when you are
browning the top of food such as cauliflower
cheese.

Preheating
h
You don't usually need to preheat the grill. You may wish to preheat it
for a couple of minutes when you are cooking steak or when browning
food.
Positioning food on the grid
Place food such as toast, teacakes and
muffins towards the centre of the grid.
Place food which needs a more gentle
heat such as tomatoes and mushrooms
towards the edge of the grid.
Arrange meat, meat products and fish to
suit their thickness and how you like them
cooked.

The hotplate control knobs turn to the left
from 'OFF' to 'HIGH' and then to 'LOW'. You
can adjust the heat by turning the control
between the highest and lowest settings.
These are shown as a large and a small
flame symbol.
Burner sizes
The hotplate has three burner sizes to suit
different types of cooking:
Largest burner (Rapid) - use a large pan for
food such as chips.
Medium burners (Normal) - use for everyday
cooking.
Small burner (Simmer) - use for simmering
food such as soups and stews.
The largest pan which you should use on any burner is 230mm (9").
The base of the smallest pan should not measure less than 100mm (4").

For your safety
T
h
e
1
Take care to avoid burns and scalds when you
are reaching across the hotplate.
2
Use pans with flat bases. They are more stable
than pans which are warped.
3
Do not use pans with very heavy handles which
cause the pan to tip.
4
Put pans on the centre of the burners.
5
Position pan handles so they cannot be
accidentally knocked.
6
Take extra care when you are deep fat frying. Do
not cover the pan with a lid.
Do not leave a pan unattended. If the pan
catches fire, leave it where it is and turn off all
controls.
Place a damp cloth or a fitting lid over the pan to
smother the flames.
Never put water on the fire.
Leave the pan to cool for 30 minutes.
7
If you are using a Wok we recommend it has a flat
base as it will stand stable on the pan supports. If
you use a round based Wok with a collar support,
the collar must be of the open wire work type. A
closed collar will affect the performance of the
burner. Before you use the Wok make sure that
the collar is stable on the pan supports. Always
follow the instructions that come with the Wok.

Helpful hints
h
T
1
Keep flames under the base of
pans. If the flames lick round the
sides of the pans you are wasting
gas.
2
Only heat the amount of liquid you
need. Do not overfill pans.
3
Cover pans with a lid whenever
possible. The food will heat up
more quickly and there will be less
steam in the kitchen.
4
Try cooking more than one
vegetable in the same pan, for
example potatoes and carrots.
5
Cut vegetables into smaller pieces.
This way they will cook more
quickly.
6
A pressure cooker will save time
and energy.

The oven
Before you use the oven you should wipe it out with a damp cloth to
remove any dust.
Heat zones
There are zones of heat within the oven.
The temperature in the middle is the gas
mark you have chosen. The top of the
oven is slightly hotter and the lower shelf
slightly cooler. The base of the oven is quite
a lot cooler. You can make use of these
heat zones when you are cooking foods
requiring different temperatures all at the
same time.
If you are cooking more than one tray of similar items, for example
cakes or biscuits, swap the trays during cooking or you can remove the
top tray when the food is cooked and move the lower tray to the higher
shelf to finish cooking.
Preheating
You do not need to preheat the oven when casseroling and so on.
Preheat the oven for baking or when you are cooking sensitive food
such as Yorkshire puddings, soufflés and yeast mixtures.
When you are cooking or reheating frozen or chilled food read the
instructions on the packing.
When you need to preheat the oven, we recommend you do so for
20 minutes.
Oven Shelves
You can slot the oven shelves in any of five
positions. Positions are counted from the top
downwards.
For safety the shelf will only pull out so
far. If you want to remove a shelf completely
pull it forward as far as it will go, raise the
front edge and lift it out. To put the shelf into
a different position keep the front edge
raised, slot the shelf on to the runner, lower
the front edge and slide the shelf in.

Baking trays and dishes
h
e
T
For your safety
Never place cooking dishes, trays
and so on over the oven burner.
This will damage the cooker as
well as the ovenware and possibly
the floor covering underneath the
cooker.
Leave a gap of 13mm (½") between
all dishes and the sides of the oven
so the heat can circulate properly.
Do not push dishes too far back as
food will burn if it overhangs the
burner flames.
For the best results from your oven we recommend that you use a
baking tray which is 310mm (12") square. If you use a tray or tin which
is larger than this, you may need to turn it round during cooking.
Place single dishes on the centre of the shelf. You may need to turn
large items around during cooking.
Roasting
For best results we recommend open roasting using minimal fat or oil to
prevent splashing.
It is not necessary to cover meat or poultry or wrap food in foil when
roasting as this restricts the circulation of heat and will lead to extended
cooktimes.
If you are using a roasting bag or cover chicken breast with foil, be
prepared to allow an extra 10 - 15 minutes for each 1/2kg (1lb).
When cooking large items such as turkeys, the use of foil may be
required to prevent the breast becoming dry before the rest of the bird is
fully cooked.
Condensation
Condensation may form on the cooker. This is quite normal and nothing
to worry about. The condensation forms when heat and moisture are
present, for example during cooking. Whenever possible try to make
sure that food which contains a lot of moisture for example casseroles
are covered. If you do notice any condensation, wipe it up straight
away.

These instructions are for cooking in the oven after it has been pre-heated for 20 minutes.
If you are cooking more than one tray of similar items, for example cakes or biscuits, swap the trays around during cooking or you
can take the top tray out of the oven when the food is cooked and move the lower tray to the higher shelf to finish cooking.
Always leave at least one shelf position between shelves to allow heat to circulate.
The recommended shelf positions give the best results.
Put the dishes in the centre of the shelf.
You can change the gas marks and cooking times to suit your own tastes.
It is important to check that food is piping hot before serving.

Slow cooking
S
ol
w
oc
o
The slow cook setting gives a very low heat in the oven. It is particularly
useful when you are cooking soups, stews and casseroles because
the long slow cooking will make cheaper, tougher cuts of meat more
tender.
You need to cook food at gas mark 6 for 30 minutes before you turn the
oven down to the slow cook setting. This makes sure that the
temperature of the food gets hot enough to start the food cooking.
Some foods such as pastry and biscuits are not suitable for slow
cooking because the temperature is too low.
Cover all food during cooking to prevent it from drying out. You can
uncover food for the last half hour if it is normally served golden brown.

Only cook joints of Pork if you can make sure, by using a meat
thermometer, that the temperature inside the joint is at least 88o C.
For good air circulation always stand joints on a rack in the roasting
tin or casserole.
Thaw all frozen meat and poultry before you cook it.
Prime cuts of meat do not benefit from slow cooking.
Cut off unwanted fat and skin unless it is browned first.

General points for slow cooking
Frozen foods
Thaw thoroughly before cooking.
Thickening
Toss meat in flour for casseroles. Blend cornflour with water and add it
at the end of cooking.
Flavouring
Flavours are held in the food because there is little evaporation. Adjust
flavouring at the end of the cooking time.
Liquid
Use slightly less liquid as there is little evaporation during cooking.
Milk and milk products, for example cream
Add these towards the end of cooking to prevent them from curdling.

a
er
For your safety
For hygiene and safety reasons you must keep this gas cooker
clean. A build up of fat or other foodstuff could cause a fire.
Try to mop up spills and splashes as soon as they happen. But
be careful as parts of the appliance will be hot.
Do not use any polishes, caustic cleaners, abrasives, washing soda
or soap powder except those recommended
in this booklet.
Please note: If we recommend you use hot
soapy water we mean hot water with
washing up liquid in it and not any other
cleaning product.
If you own a dishwasher please read the
operating instructions for the machine before
you wash any part of your cooker.
Clean your cooker regularly using a cloth that has been wrung out in
hot soapy water. Rinse and polish it dry using a soft cloth.
When you remove parts of your cooker for cleaning do not plunge
them into water whilst they are very hot as this may damage the finish of
the parts.
The hotplate
Clean the hotplate top using a mild abrasive such as 'Jif'. Take care not
to damage the spark electrodes. If the spark electrodes are damaged
the burners will not light.
You can remove the pan supports, burner caps and burner crowns to
clean them. Again take care not to damage the spark electrodes.
If any food spills do occur during cooking you can place the pan on
another burner to finish cooking. Then you can remove the dirty parts
and clean them before the spill 'burns on'.

You can wash the removable parts in very hot soapy water. You may
use mild abrasives. Make sure that the electrode and the hole and slots
in the crown are not blocked with food or cleaning materials.
Clean the burner crowns by soaking them in very hot soapy water.
You can remove any stubborn stains by scouring with a soap filled pad
such as 'Brillo'. If you look after the burner crowns in this way they will
stay reasonably clean. However the surface will dull with time.
Aluminium based saucepans can leave shiny metal marks on the
pan supports. To clean the pan supports regularly remove the marks
using a mild abrasive like 'Jif' with a soft scourer. For more stubborn
marks you can use a soap filled pad such as 'Brillo'.
After cleaning the cooker parts, dry them
thoroughly before you put them back.

When replacing hotplate burner parts
1. Crown to body (Do not try to force the crown on to the body). Make
sure that the hole in the crown is centrally over the electrode.
Check that the two longer location pegs
sit in the slots in the body. When the
crown is in the position let it fall freely on
to the body.
Check that the crown can be moved
slightly from side to side.
2. Cap to crown
Place cap centrally on the top of crown
(enamel side up). Move sideways and
front to back to check the cap is fitted
properly.
3. Check for ignition
If a burner will not light then you need to
check the crown and cap positions.
The grill
Clean the area around the grill frequently using hot soapy water.
After use you can soak the pan for a few minutes and then clean it
using mild abrasives or a soap filled pad such as 'Brillo'.
Clean the shelf using hot soapy water. Mild abrasives can be used if
necessary.

The top, sides and back of your oven are coated in a special material
which helps to keep itself clean.
Follow these simple rules to maintain the appearance of the special
finish.
Helpful hints
1
Do not overfill dishes or they will
boil over.
2
Do not put dishes too high in the
oven. If you do they may stick to
the oven roof.
3
Cover your roasting tins with foil.
This will prevent fat splashing.
4
Use a roasting tin which is just
large enough for the meat and
potatoes. This will help to reduce
fat splashing.
5
Dry any vegetables that you are
going to roast. If they are wet
there will be more fat splashing.
6
Follow the oven cleaning cycle
regularly.

Oven cleaning cycle
d
You need to follow the cycle to keep the inside of the oven in good
condition. The type of cooking you do will affect how often you need to
follow the cycle.
If you do a lot of roasting and very little other baking you should
follow the cleaning cycle once a week. If you do very little roasting you
will only need to follow the cleaning cycle every 2-3 weeks.
C
a
er
a
n
c
el
a
To carry out a cleaning cycle:
1. Remove the oven shelves.
2. Set the oven to mark 5 for at
least 30 minutes.
3. Turn the temperature up to mark
7 for 2 hours or until the oven is
presentably clean.
Do not use any cleaning agents
or scrapers on the inside of the
oven. Do not wash the special
finish.
You can replace the oven roof if you need to. You may order this from
your supplier. When you are ordering quote part number 359001011.
General
Clean the base of the oven, the oven shelves and the oven door while
they are still slightly warm. This way you can easily remove any
splashes and spills. Wipe the base with a cloth that has been wrung
out in hot soapy water. You may use mild abrasives.

To remove the outer glass
1 Open the oven door so you can get at the two cross head screws on
the top of the oven door.
2 Loosen these two screws using a pozidrive screwdriver.
3 You should hold the door glass securely in place with one hand,
whilst removing the screws completely, with the other hand. If you do
not do this, the door glass could fall forward.
4 Using both hands, gently tilt the top of the door glass towards you.
Lift it slightly to disengage the locators at the bottom of the door.
5 Clean the glass using hot soapy water and mild abrasives such as
'Jif'. DO NOT try to clean the aluminium foil which is inside the door.
The foil is there to help keep the door cool, if it is damaged it will not
work.
6 Replace the glass by holding it in both hands and gently placing the
locators into the holes of the brackets at the bottom of the door. Push
the top of the glass towards the oven door, and make sure the screw
location holes line up.
7 Hold the glass in place with one hand and replace the cross head
screws into the location holes, with the other hand. Give the screws
one turn to make sure the glass is held in place.
8 Tighten the screws using a pozidrive screwdriver.

Cleaning The Door Glass
nI
s
at
To prevent damaging or weakening the door glass panels avoid
the use of the following:
Household detergents and bleaches
Impregnated pads unsuitable for non-stick saucepans
Brillo/Ajax pads or steel wool pads
Chemical oven pads or aerosols
Rust removers
Bath/Sink stain removers
If the door glass panel becomes chipped or has deep scratches
the glass will be weakened and must be replaced to prevent the
possibility of the panel shattering. Please contact your local
Service Centre who will be pleased to advise further.
Installing the cooker
For your safety
This cooker must be installed and serviced by a competent person as
stated in the Gas Safety (Installation & Use) regulations current editions
and the IEE Wiring Regulations.
It is important that the cooker is suitable for your gas supply.
Your installer should check the data badge.
Make sure that a stability bracket is fitted.
Location
For your safety
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 of a window, or more effective
ventilation, for example increasing the level of mechanical ventilation
where present.
For further details see page 33.

Positioning
The diagram shows how close to the cooker cupboards, shelves,
curtains and so on can be fitted. Refer to the diagram and carefully read
the instructions to make sure your cooker is fitted safely. If you are in
doubt your installer will give you advice.
Do not fit any materials which may catch fire for example wood or
curtains behind the cooker.
l
l
l
l
Base units which are higher than the hotplate must be 100mm away.
If a cooker hood is fitted refer to the cooker hood installation
instructions.

Do not block any of the cooker vents.
Never line any part of the cooker with aluminium foil.
Don't let items which can catch fire or electric mains leads such
as kettle flexes trail over any part of the cooker.
Moving your cooker
You may damage some soft or badly fitted floor coverings when you
move the cooker. The floor covering under the cooker should be
securely fixed so it does not ruck up when you move the cooker across
it. Alternatively you could remove the floor covering.
To move the cooker open the oven door and slide out the oven roof
liner. Raise the cooker off its front feet by lifting from inside the oven.
Pull the cooker forward. When you replace the cooker push it back to
the stop and make sure there is the same gap at each rear corner.
The battery
The battery for the ignition will usually last for
many months. If the ignition system doesn't
work you probably need to replace the

Turn the oven thermostat knob to Mk 9 and press the ignition button. As soon as the burner is alight the
button can be released.
There should now be a low gas rate to the burner, which is the F.S.D. by-pass rate.
When the F.S.D. phial has heated up it opens the F.S.D. valve which allows the main gas supply to the
oven burner.
Set the oven control to Mk 2, close the oven door and check that after about 10 minutes the flame size
has reduced.
Turn off the control and check that the oven flames go out.
