INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
When a liquid starts boiling, it is advisable to turn the flame
down just enough to keep the liquid simmering.
HOB OPERATION
The hob is fitted with a pan reducing support (fig.1), which
should only be used on the auxiliary burner "A"
The burners are fitted with automatic ignition and a
thermocouple safety device, which automatically cuts off
the gas from the burner in a few seconds if the flame
accidentally goes out during operation.
The burners differ in size and power. Choose the most
appropriate one for the diameter of the cookware being
used. Each burner can be regulated with the corresonding
control knob "M" by using one of the following settings:

relative burner on the hob.
By turning the selector knob “G” marked with the symbol
, different cooking modes are obtained, as shown in
To ignite a burner, proceed as follows:
• turn the relative knob counter-clockwise until the pointer
is on the high-flame symbol;
• press the knob down fully and activate the automatic gas
ignition by pushing at the same time the button "P" marked
with the symbol
;
• keep the knob pressed down for about 10 seconds with
the flame lit to allow the safety thermocouple to be heated;
• release the knob, checking that the flame is stable. If it is
not, repeat the operation.

For minimum power, turn the knob towards the low flame
symbol. Intermediate positions are possible by simply putting
the knob anywhere between the high and the low flame
symbol. To turn off the burner, turn the knob clockwise to
the off position " " .
Important:
• Do not activate the automatic ignition device for more
than 15 consecutive seconds.
• Difficulty in ignition is sometimes due to air inside the
gas duct.
• If a burner flame accidentally goes out, the gas continues
to exit for a few moments before the safety device
activates. Turn the control knob to the off position and do
not attempt ignition again for at least 1 minute, thereby
letting the gas disperse, which could otherwise be a
danger.
• When the appliance is not in operation, check that the
knobs are in the off position " " . The main gas supply

INSTALLATION
fig.6
In a chimney stack or branched flue
Directly to the outside
(exclusively for cooking appliances)
Kitchen ventilation
The air flow into the room where the appliance is installed
must equal the quantity of air that is required for regular
combustion of the gas and for ventilating the same room.
Air must be taken in naturally through permanent apertures
made in the outside walls of the room or through single or
branching collective ventilation ducts in compliance with
current standards and regulations.
The air must be taken directly from the outside, from an
area far from sources of pollution.
The ventilation aperture must have the following
characteristics (fig.7A):
• total free cross section of passage of at least 6 cm² for
every kW of rated heating capacity of the appliance, with
a minimum of 100 cm² (the heating capacity is indicated
on the rating plate);
• it must be made in such a way that the aperture, both on
the inside and outside of the wall, cannot be obstructed;
• it must be protected, e.g. with grates, wire mesh, etc. in
such a way that the above-mentioned free section is not
reduced;
• it must be situated as near to floor level as possible.
fig.4
The following instructions are provided for qualified installers
so that they may accomplish installation, adjustment and
technical maintenance operations correctly and in
compliance with current regulations and standards.
Important: the appliance should be disconnected from
the mains electricity supply before any adjustment,
maintenance, etc. is carried out. Maximum caution should
be used should it be necessary to keep the appliance
connected to the electricity supply.
The cookers have the following technical specifications:
Category: II 2H3+ Class: 1 Type: Y
The dimensions of the appliance are given in the figure on
page 2.
For trouble-free operation of appliances installed in housing
units, the minimum distances shown in fig.4 should be
observed. Adjacent surfaces and the wall at the rear should
also be able to withstand an overheating temperature of 65
°C.
Prior to installing the cooker, 95 ÷ 155 mm high supporting
feet (provided) should be fitted into the holes to be found in
the bottom of the cooker (fig.5). These feet are screwadjustable and whenever necessary should be used to make
sure the cooker stands level.

Positioning
This appliance may only be installed and operated in
permanently ventilated rooms in compliance with current
standards. The following requirements must be observed:
• The appliance must discharge combustion products into
a special hood, which must be connected to a chimney,
flue pipe or directly to the outside (fig.6).
• If it is impossible to fit a hood, the use of an electric fan is
permitted, either installed on a window or on an external
wall, which must be switched on at the same time as the
appliance.
Examples of ventilation holes
for comburant air
Enlarging the ventilation slot
between window and floor
fig. 7A
fig. 7B
The air inflow may also be obtained from an adjoining room,
provided the latter is not a bedroom or a room where there
is a risk of fire, such as warehouses, garages, fuel stores,
etc. and is ventilated in compliance with the current
standards and regulations.
Air from the adjoining room to the one to be ventilated may
be made to pass freely through permanent apertures with
a cross section at least equal to that indicated above. These
apertures may also be obtained by increasing the gap
between the door and the floor (fig.7B).
7
If an electric fan is used for extracting the combustion
products, the ventilation aperture must be increased in
relation to its maximum performance. The electric fan should
have a sufficient capacity to guarantee an hourly exchange
of air equal to 3 ÷ 5 times the volume of the kitchen.
Also check that the connecting pipe cannot come into contact
with moving parts which could damage or crush it.
Make sure that the natural gas pipe is adequate for a sufficient
supply to the appliance when all the burners are lit
Important: A pressure regulator, in compliance with the
standards in force, must be inserted when connecting to a
liquid gas supply (in a cylinder).
Prolonged, intensive use of the appliance may require extra
ventilation, e.g. an open window or a more efficient
ventilation system by increasing the extraction power of
the electric fan if installed.
Liquid petroleum gas descends towards the floor as it is
heavier than air. Apertures in the outside walls in rooms
containing LPG cylinders should therefore be at floor level,
in order to allow any gas from leaks to be expelled. Do not
store LPG cylinders (even when empty) in basements or
rooms below ground level; it is advisable to keep only the
cylinder in use in the room at any one time and connected
far from heat sources which could raise its temperature to
above 50 °C.

fig.9
Gas supply connection
• Check that the appliance is set for the type of gas available
and then connect it to the mains gas piping or the gas
cylinder in compliance with current regulations and
standards.
• This appliance is designed and set to work with the gas
indicated on the label situated on the actual hob. If the
gas supply is other than the type for which the appliance
has been set, proceed with replacing the corresponding
nozzles (provided), following instructions given in the
paragraph “Adaptation to different types of gas”.
• For trouble-free operation, suitable use of energy and
longer life of the appliance, make sure that the supply
pressure complies with the values indicated in the table 1
"burners and nozzles specifications, otherwise install a
special pressure regulator on the supply pipe in
compliance with current standards and regulations.
• Connect in such a way that the appliance is subjected to
no strain whatsoever.
Either a rigid metal pipe with fittings in compliance with the
standards in force must be used for connecting to the nipple
union (threaded ½"G male fitting) situated at the rear of the
appliance to the right (fig.8), or flexible steel pipe in
compliance with the standards in force, which must not
exceed 2000 mm in length.
Should it be necessary to turn the fitting, the gasket (supplied
with the appliance) must be replaced.
Upon completion of installation, check the gas circuit, the
internal connections and the taps for leaks using a soapy
solution (never a flame).
Adaptation to a different type of gas
If the appliance is to be converted for use with a type of
gas other than that for which it was set in the factory
(indicated on the label to be found on the hob), the burner
nozzles should be replaced as follows:
• remove the grids and the burners.
• Unscrew the nozzles "A" (fig.9), using a 7 mm socket
wrench and replace them, according to the table 1
"burners and nozzles specifications", with ones suitable
for the new type of gas.
• On completing the operation, replace the old rating label
with the one showing the new type of gas; the sticker is
available from our Service Centres.
• Re-assemble all the components.

Adjusting the low flame
• Put the tap to the low flame position (the burner should
be lit);
• Remove the tap knob and turn the adjusting screw,
situated to the side of the tap stem (fig.10) until you
obtain a regular small flame, using a screwdriver
(loosening the screw increases the height of the flame,
tightening decreases it).
N.B. : the adjusting screw must be fully screwed down
for liquid gas.
• Having obtained the low flame setting required and with
the burner lit, abruptly change the position of the knob
several times from minimum to maximum and vice versa and check that the flame does not go out.
• Refit the tap knobs

cable and connect it to a suitable socket.
To connect directly to the mains supply, an omnipolar switch
with a contact break of at least 3 mm suitable for the load
and complying with current standards and regulations must
be fitted between the appliance and the mains supply outlet.
The yellow-green earth wire must not be interrupted by the
switch.
The supply cable must be in such a position that no part of
it can reach a temperature of 50 °C above room temperature.
All the appliances should be connected seperately.
Do not use adapters or shunts as they could cause heating
or burning.
Before connecting to the power supply, make sure that:
• the limiter valve and the domestic system can withstand
the load from the appliance (see rating plate);
• the supply system is efficiently earthed according to the
standards and laws in force;
• the socket or omnipolar switch are easily accessible when
the appliance is installed.
FAILURE TO OBSERVE THE ACCIDENT-PREVENTION
REGULATIONS RELIEVES THE MANUFACTURER OF ALL
LIABILITY.

Replacing the cable
Use a rubber cable of the type H05VV-F with a suitable
cross section of 3 x 1.5 mm².
The yellow-green earth wire must be 2 ÷ 3 cm longer than
the other wires.
