Lighting the appliance
The system works by means of an electric spark system. Details about
the plug are given on page 37.
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.
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 appliance 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 knob to turn off a burner. Do not use
the lid as a 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 29 for more information.

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.
Prior to using the grill
We suggest that you operate the grill for approximately 5 - 10 mins to
burn off any residue from the surface. During this period a slight odour
may be emitted, it is therefore advisable to open a window for
ventilation.
When you first operate the grill you may hear some sounds as the
burner heats up, this is quite normal and is not a fault on the appliance.
For your safety
The grill pan and handle must be in place before igniting the grill.
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.
Never cover the grill pan or grid with foil as this can lead to grill
fires.
Heat control
The grill control has two heat settings.
The control knob turns to the right from
'OFF' to 'LOW' and then to 'HIGH'. 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
(Position 2). Positions are counted from the top
downwards.
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.
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.
8
The grill pan and handle
The grill pan is supplied with a removable handle.
To attach the handle, place the wirework under the cut out in the pan so
that the metal plate hooks over the top of the grill pan.
Slide the handle to the left and over the central bump on the grill pan.
Ensure the handle is correctly located. It is not necessary to
remove the grill pan handle during grilling.
Place the grill pan on the shelf so that the pan is positioned centrally
beneath the grill.
To remove the handle, slide the handle to the right and lift the handle
away from the cut out on the grill pan.
Note
If you require an additional handle for your grill pan, this can be ordered
from your Local Service Force Centre by quoting part number
311479800\6.

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 29 for more information.
Heat control
The hotplate control knobs turn
anticlockwise 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").
10
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.
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
8
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.

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.
12
The ovens
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.
13
The ovens
SG 556

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 appliance as well as the
cookware and possibly the floor
covering underneath the appliance.
Leave a gap of 13mm (½") between all

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.
14
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 use 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 appliance. 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.

In the following pages we explain
how to set the controls. Read through
them a few times until you are familiar
with the procedure.
Selector
Setting knob
If the oven is switched off on the wall, or there is a loss of power, the
clock will stop and you will not be able to use the main oven. When you
first switch the electricity supply on, the timer display will flash.
To set the time of day
Turn the selector knob to 'Manual' then
turn to 'Clock'.
Set the correct time by turning and
holding the setting knob clockwise.
Adjust the time by turning the setting
knob in either direction.
Turn the selector knob back to 'Manual'.
To use the Timer
Turn the selector knob to 'Timer'. Turn
the setting knob clockwise until the
display shows the time you want. The
bell symbol (
) will be showing and
this will stay lit up during the time. Our
diagram shows the timer set to 5
minutes.
If you change your mind and want to cancel the time you have set,
simply turn the setting knob anticlockwise. Then turn the selector to
'Manual'.
22
When you are using the timer 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 timer 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 timer 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.
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.

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' 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.

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.
Turn to S
Mark 6
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.

General points for slow cooking
Frozen foods
Thaw thoroughly before cooking.
Thickening
Toss meat in flour for casseroles. Alternatively 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
Do not reheat food using the slow cook setting. Reheat food
conventionally or in a microwave. Food must only be reheated once.

Care and cleaning
For your safety
For hygiene and safety reasons you must keep this gas
appliance 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 appliance in it.
Clean your appliance regularly using a cloth that has been wrung out
in hot soapy water. Rinse and polish it dry using a soft cloth.
Stainless Steel cream cleaners are abrasive and should be avoided
as they may damage the surface finish.
When you remove parts of your appliance for cleaning do not plunge
them into water whilst they are very hot as this may damage the finish of
the parts.
Cleaning the handles and control knobs
Do not remove the control knobs from the appliance as damage
may occur. It is strongly recommended that only hot soapy water and a
soft cloth is used for cleaning the door handles and control knobs. ANY
OTHER CLEANING MATERIALS MAY DULL THE FINISH. Care should
be taken when cleaning, to ensure that all cleaning products are wiped
from the control knobs immediately.
28
The hotplate
Clean the hotplate top using a mild abrasive such as 'Cif'. 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'.
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 'Cif' with a soft scourer. For more stubborn
marks you can use a soap-filled pad such as 'Brillo'.
After cleaning the appliance 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.

SG 556
Care and cleaning
SG 556
The grill
Do not clean the grill burner itself.
The burner is designed to be self cleaning. Cleaning the grill may cause
the holes in the burner to become blocked preventing it from operating
correctly.
Please note that due to the nature of stainless steel the grill burner may
tarnish through use over a period of time. This is quite normal and is not
a fault on the appliance.
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 grill shelf using hot soapy water. Mild abrasives can be used
if necessary.
The grill and oven furniture
Clean the grill and oven furniture 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, grill pan grid and handle 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.
30
The ovens
The sides and back of your ovens 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
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:
1. Remove the oven shelves.
2. Set the oven to mark 5 for at
least 30 minutes.
MARK 5
3. Turn the temperature up to
mark 7 for 2 hours or until
the oven is presentably clean.
Some staining will remain.
MARK 7
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 359001018.
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 or spills. Wipe the oven base with a cloth that has been wrung
out in hot soapy water. You may use mild abrasives.

Cleaning between the outer and inner door
glass.
You can remove the glass from the oven and grill doors if you need to.
Note: For top oven door it is important not to open the door when the
glass is removed because the door is lighter and it will spring shut.
To remove the outer glass
1 Open the door so you can get at the two cross head screws on the
top of the door.
Note: Open top oven door slightly to access screws.
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.
Please note that the door
glass on your product may
differ in type and shape from
that shown in the diagram.
5 Clean the outer and inner glass using hot soapy water and mild
abrasives such as 'Cif'. DO NOT try to clean the foil which is inside
the door. The foil is there to 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, 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.
8 Tighten the screws using a pozidrive screwdriver. Close the door.
34
Cleaning The Door Glass
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 Force Centre who will be
pleased to advise further.

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.
After 1 minute check that the flame covers the full width of the burner and is stable.
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.
