Lighting the cooker
The system works by means of an electric spark system. Details about
the plug are given on page 33.
Hotplate
To light
1. Lift up the lid. You cannot use the hotplate when the lid is down.
2. Push in the control knob and turn it to the large flame symbol
(highest setting), and press the ignition button immediately. When
the burner has lit release the button.
RAPID
Warning: If the ignition button is not pressed immediately a build up of
gas may cause the flame to spread.
For your safety
If you close the lid of the cooker while any of the hotplate burners
are lit the gas will go out. This is because it would be dangerous if
the burners stayed on when the lid was closed.
Always use the control to turn off a burner. Do not use the lid
cut-off device. This will only cut off the gas when the lid is closed.
The gas will flow again when the lid is opened.
Please note: If you have any trouble lighting a hotplate burner turn all
the hotplate control knobs off and make sure the hotplate burner parts
have been replaced correctly.
See page 28 for more information.

The gril
SONATA 55 L X a
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.
For your safety
You must keep the grill door open when the grill burner is lit.
Accessible parts may be hot when the grill is used. Young
children should be kept away.
Heat control
The grill control has two heat settings.
The control knob turns to the right
from 'OFF' to 'HIGH' and then to
'LOW'. Use the high setting for fast
cooking such as toast. Use the low
setting to cook thicker food such as
chicken after you have browned it on
the high setting.
Cooking positions
There is only one position for the
grill shelf.
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.

General
The shelf in the grill/second oven is different from the shelves in the
main oven. It is important that you do not swap them over. Only use the
shelf with the solid metal plate underneath it in the grill/second oven.
The grill pan handle can be removed. To
put the handle on to the pan you should
put the chrome bracket over the cut out
in the pan and then slide the handle to
the left as far as the bump on the pan.
When you are not using the grill you should remove the handle and
store the pan on the shelf in the grill. Turn the grill burner off before you
store the pan. Remember that the pan will get hot when you are using
the main oven.
You can use the grill compartment to warm plates when you are
using the main oven.
Preheating
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 browning food.
Positioning food on
the grid
Place food such as toast, tea-cakes and
muffins towards the centre of the grid.
Place food which needs a 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
You can only use the hotplate when the lid is open. If you have any
trouble lighting a hotplate burner turn all hotplate control knobs off and
make sure the hotplate burner parts have been replaced correctly. See
page 28 for more information.
Heat control
RAPID
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
1
Take care to avoid burns and scalds when you
are reaching across the hotplate.
Use pans with flat bases. They are more stable
than pans which are warped.
Do not use pans with very heavy handles which
cause the pan to tip.
Put pans on the centre of the burners.
Position pan handles so they cannot be
accidentally knocked.
Take extra care when you are deep fat frying. Do
not cover the pan with a lid.
RAPID
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.
7
8
Leave the pan to cool for 30 minutes.
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.
Do not use the lid as a work surface or chopping
board. This could damage the glass and reduce
its strength.
10
Helpful hints
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 ovens

The hotplate
SONATA 55 L X a

SONATA 55 L X a
Before you use the ovens you should wipe them out with a damp cloth to
remove any dust.
Heat zones
Main oven - 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 that need 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 around
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.
Second oven - You should turn food round during the cooking time.
Preheating
You do not need to preheat the main or second oven for casseroling
and so on.
Preheat the ovens 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 packaging. When you are using the second oven to
reheat food you should preheat the oven to gas mark 8. When you need
to preheat the oven, we recommend you do so for 20 minutes.
Oven shelves
You can slot the oven shelves into any of five
positions in the main oven and any of the two
positions in the second oven. Positions are
counted from the top downwards.
The shelf in the grill/second oven is
different from the shelves in the main oven.
Only use the shelf with the solid metal plate
underneath it in the grill/second oven. The
plate may glow red when you are using the
oven. This will not affect the cooking
performance.
12
Most second oven cooking should be
carried out using the shelf provided in shelf
position 2. However when cooking a small
joint or a deep cake you can use the shelf on
the base of the second oven to allow enough
Shelf on base
air to circulate around the food.
For safety the shelves 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
For your safety
Never place cooking dishes, trays and so
on over the oven burners. This will
damage the cooker as well as the
cookware 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 the main 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 around during cooking.
The size of tray which should be used in the second oven should not
be bigger than 310mm x 230mm (12" x 9"). Place the longest side
parallel with the door.
Place single dishes on the centre of the shelf. You may need to turn
large items around during cooking. Turn all food round in the second
oven.

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.

When you are using the minute minder you can make the clock
show the time of day by turning the selector knob to 'manual'. The bell
symbol will stay on to remind you that the minute minder is set. At the
end of the timed period an alarm will sound and the bell symbol will go
out.
Switch off the alarm by turning the selector knob to 'clock'. Then turn
to 'manual' and the time of day will show in the display.
Note:
You can use the minute minder when an automatic sequence has been
set, as long as you remember the following point.
1 Turn the selector knob to 'Auto' as soon as you have entered the
timed period into the display.
To change the audible signal
When the right hand knob is turned anti-clockwise, a choice of three
audible signals are available. To select the choice of signal required,
rotate knob anti-clockwise and release. Repeat procedure to choose
desired signal.
Automatic control
Important: You can only use the automatic control for the main oven.
When you use the automatic controls for the first time it's probably best
to choose a time when you are at home. That way you can check to
make sure you've set everything correctly and you'll feel much more
confident when you are away from home in the future.
Setting the controls for automatic use
This is very easy. All you have to do is work through the steps below.
The clock will work out the rest for itself.
1 Is the electricity supply on?
2 Is the clock
showing the
correct time?
To adjust turn the
selector knob to
'manual' then turn to
'clock'. Turn the
setting knob in
either direction.
22
3 How long will
the food take
to cook?
Turn the selector knob to
'cook'. Then turn the setting
knob until the length of time
you want the food to cook
shows in the display. The
maximum cooking time is
10 hours. 'Auto' will show in
the display.
4 What time do
you want the
food to be
cooked by?
Turn the selector knob to
'Stop'. Turn the setting knob
until the time the oven is to
switch off shows in the
display. The cookpot (
)
will go out.
The 'Stop' time must not be
more than 23 hours 59
minutes from the time of
day. For example if the time
of day is 9.00 am the latest
'Stop' time will be 8.59 am
the next day.
5 Set to
automatic.
Turn the selector knob to
'Auto'.
6 Turn on the
oven control.
Turn the oven control to
mark 9 then to the gas mark
you want.
The time shown on the chart gives an example of setting the
automatic controls when the time is 9.00 am, the food is to be cooked for
2½ hours and the food is needed at 6.00 pm (1800 hours).
The clock will work out what time the oven will switch itself on and it
will turn the oven off at the end. Once the automatic sequence is finished
there will be an alarm to remind you that you need to set the oven for
manual operation. To do this turn the selector knob to 'manual'. Turn off
the oven control.
If you change your mind and want to cancel a programme that you
have set simply turn to 'clock' and then to 'manual'.

Hints and tips for automatic cooking
1 Check the instructions for setting the automatic controls until you are
familiar with the timer operation.
2 If the oven has been used, allow it to cool completely before using
for automatic cooking.
3 You should leave food in the oven for as short a time as possible
before automatic cooking starts.
4 Do not leave food to stand in the oven when it has finished cooking.
You should remove it and if it is not going to be eaten at once, cool it
quickly.
5 If you cannot remove food from the oven as soon as it is cooked
make sure that the food is covered.
6 Choose perishable foods carefully, especially during warm weather.
7 Food should be fresh and preferably straight from the refrigerator.
8 Joints of meat and poultry must be completely thawed.
9 Dishes containing left over cooked meat or poultry should not be
cooked automatically if there is a delay period.
10 Choose dishes which require approximately the same cooking time.
Slight variations may be allowed by:i) placing foods in larger or smaller containers
ii) using more or less liquid
iii) cutting fruit or vegetables into larger or smaller pieces.
This will give longer or shorter cooking times respectively. Further
temperature adjustments can be made by placing the foods higher
or lower in the oven as the top of the oven is hotter than the bottom.
11 Arrange shelf positions to suit dishes and choose dishes which will fit
into the oven together.
12 As food may be standing for some time in the oven, cover dishes
with foil or a lid where possible, and in the case of roast potatoes and
joints of meat, brush with a little fat or oil. Lemon juice may be added
to fruit to prevent browning.
13 Cream should be added just before serving.
14 If alcohol is used fermentation can occur.
15 Green leaf vegetables which take only a short time to cook, should
not be placed into the oven with the automatic meal. It is far better to
cook them in a pan on the hotplate whilst dishing up the rest of the
meal.
24
Slow cooking
Please note: There is no slow cook on the second oven.
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.
MAIN OVEN
MAIN OVEN
Some foods such as pastry and biscuits are not suitable for slow
cooking because the temperature is too low.

General points for slow cooking
Frozen foods
Thaw thoroughly before cooking.
Thickening
Toss meat in flour for casseroles. Blend cornflour with water and add at
the end of cooking.
Flavouring
Flavours are retained because there is little evaporation. Adjust at the
end of the cooking time.
Liquid
Reduce normal liquid quantities slightly as there is little evaporation
during cooking time.
Milk and milk products, for example cream
Add these towards the end of cooking to prevent them from curdling.
Reheating
Left over food should be cooled quickly and refrigerated.
Food should not be reheated using the slow cook setting. Reheat
conventionally or in a microwave. Food must only be reheated once.
26
Care and cleaning
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 cooker 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.
Cleaning the brass plated handles
If your appliance has brass plated handles it is strongly recommended
that only hot soapy water is used for cleaning. ANY OTHER CLEANING
MATERIALS WILL DULL THE BRASS PLATED FINISH.
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 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'.
27
Care and cleaning
SONATA 55 L X a
Care and cleaning
SONATA 55 L X a
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. Clean the pan supports regularly to 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
over the electrode. Check that the two
longer location pegs sit in the slots in the
body. When the crown is in this 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 properly
fitted.
3. Check for ignition
If a burner will not light then you need to
check the crown and cap positions.
The grill
Clean the grill frequently using hot soapy water.
After use you can soak the grill 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 heat in the oven will change the colour of the solid plate
on the shelf. You must not remove the solid plate from the shelf. You
can soak the shelf in hot soapy water for a few minutes to make
cleaning easier.
28
The main oven
The 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.
Do not overfill dishes or they will boil over.
Do not put dishes too high in the oven. If
you do they may stick to the oven roof.
Cover your roasting tins with foil. This will
prevent fat splashing.
Use a roasting tin which is just large
enough for the meat and potatoes. This will
help to reduce fat splashing.
Dry any vegetables that you are going to
roast. If they are wet there will be more fat
splashing.
Follow the oven cleaning cycle regularly.

Main oven cleaning cycle
Please note: The oven cleaning cycle can only be used in the main
oven.
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.
To carry out a cleaning cycle:
MAIN OVEN
1. Remove the oven shelves.
2. Set the oven to mark 5 for at
least 30 minutes.
MAIN OVEN
3. Turn the temperature up to
mark 7 for 2 hours or until the
oven is presentably clean.
Some staining will remain.
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, the roasting tin and the
oven door while they are still slightly warm. This way you can easily
remove any splashes or spills. Wipe the oven base with a cloth that has
been wrung out in hot soapy water. You may use mild abrasives.

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 40.

General information
For your safety
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 second oven door and slide out the
oven roof liner. Raise the cooker off its front feet by lifting it 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.
For your safety
Do not try to disconnect the cooker from the gas supply if the supply
pipe does not have a bayonet connection, as described in the
installation instructions. If this is the case contact the person who
installed the cooker.
Connecting to the electricity supply
For your safety
This cooker must be earthed and protected by a 3 amp fuse.
The plug supplied with the cooker can be fitted directly to a suitable
three pin earthed socket.
If you have to change the fuse replace it with a 3 amp fuse which has
been ASTA approved to BS 1362.
Do not use the plug until you have put the fuse cover back on. If the
fuse cover is lost you can get a replacement from an electrical retailer.
The correct replacement can be identified by marking or colour coding.
If you cut the plug off dispose of it safely as it will be a shock hazard
if it is inserted into a 13 amp socket elsewhere in the house.

After seven seconds have elapsed from when the correct time of day has been set, the timer ceases to
be active and subsequent operation of the right hand knob will not change the time setting.
When the right hand knob is turned anti-clockwise after the seven second delay period, a choice of
three audible signals are available. To select the choice of signal required rotate knob anti-clockwise and
release. Repeat procedure to choose desired signal.

Set the clock as described above, the clock is now ready for manual operation.
Turn the main oven thermostat to Mk.9 and check that there is sparking from the ignition system. This
should continue until the oven burner is alight.
When the oven burner lights up the sparking should cease, there should be a low gas rate at first to the
oven burner which is the flame supervision device (F.S.D.) by pass rate.
When the F.S.D. phial has heated up it opens the F.S.D. valve and the main gas stream flows to the
burner.
Set the oven thermostat to Mk.2, close the oven door and check that after about 10 minutes the flame
has reduced in size.
Turn off the thermostat and check that the oven flames go out.

Having set the clock up as described above, turn the left hand knob to the 'cook' position and set the right
hand knob to show a cooking time of two minutes (0.02).
Turn the left hand knob to the 'stop' position; the time shown on the display is now the time of day with two
minutes added on. Rotate the right hand knob to add two minutes to this time to give a two minute delay.
Turn the left hand knob to the 'auto' position to complete the programming sequence, the clock now shows
the time of day again with 'auto' glowing continuously.
Turn the oven thermostat on and two minutes after setting, the oven burner should commence its lighting
sequence.
Two minutes after the lighting sequence has started the timer should cut off the gas supply to the oven burner
and the audible signal should sound. The signal is continuous it may be switched off at any time by rotating
the left hand knob.
