Positioning in the counter top
If it is necessary to adapt the hob for use with a different type of gas from the
factory-set one, adjust it before mounting the hob, according to the instructions
in “5. Adaptation to different types of gas”.
The following operation requires building and/or carpentry work and must therefore be
carried out by a competent tradesman.
Installation can be carried out on various materials such as masonry, metal, solid
wood or plastic laminated wood as long as they are heat-resistant (T 90°C).
2.1 Fixing to the supporting structure
Create an opening in the counter top with the dimensions shown in the figure, keeping
a minimum distance of 100 mm from the rear edge. This appliance can be installed
next to walls which are higher than the hob top, provided that the distance shown in
the illustration is maintained in order to avoid damage from overheating. Make sure
there is a minimum distance of 750 mm between the hob and any shelf or hood that
may be installed directly above it.
If the hob is installed on top of an oven, the latter must be equipped with a cooling fan.
In case of installation on an empty kitchen unit with doors, a separation panel must be
placed under the hob. Keep a minimum distance of 10 mm between the bottom of the
hob and the surface of the panel, which must be easily extractable to allow sufficient
access for any technical assistance.

position of the sponge. Pay close
attention during positioning to
ensure that it does not extend
past the outer edge of the
frame.
2.3 Positioning the fastening clips
Insert the fastening clips in each
of the positions indicated by the
arrows. The clips ensure that the
hob will be fixed and centred as
accurately as possible.
To install the clips into the hob, all
you have to do is insert them
horizontally into the appropriate
space by applying light pressure
(fig. A).
Then turn them upwards to fix
them in place (fig. B).
2.4 Inserting the hob into the hole in the work surface
Be very careful when inserting the hob. If the process is not followed correctly as
described, the hob may be damaged.
Before inserting it, remove the
racks (if they are mounted) and
burners from the hob.
Insert the hob, resting the frame
completely on the back edge of
the hole in the work surface. Do
not apply pressure to the frame as
this part is very fragile and could
be damaged.
Then lower the front of the hob
until it is fully inserted.

Electrical connection
Make sure that the voltage and capacity of the power line conform to the data shown on
the plate located under the casing. Do not remove this plate for any reason.
The plug at the end of the supply cable and the wall socket must be of the same type
and must conform to the applicable legislation on electrical installations. Make sure that
the supply line is suitably earthed.
Pass the power supply cable through the back of the unit, taking care that it does not
touch the bottom casing of the hob or the oven (if any) installed underneath it.
Fit the power line with an omnipolar circuit-breaker with a contact opening gap equal to
or greater than 3 mm, in an easily accessible position close to the appliance.
Avoid the use of adapters and shunts.
If the power cable is replaced, the cross-section of wires in the new cable must be no less
than 0.75 mm2 (3 x 0.75 cable), remembering that the end for connection to the appliance
must have an earth wire (yellow/green) which is at least 20 mm longer. Only use a
H05V2V2-F or similar cable resistant to temperatures of up to 90°C. The replacement must
be made by a specialist technician who must implement the connection to the power grid
according to the diagram below.
L = brown
N = blue
= yellow/green
The power supply cable must be replaced by an authorised service centre to prevent
any risks.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage to persons or things caused by
non-observance of the above directions or by interference with any part of the
appliance.

Instructions for the installer
4.
Gas connection
If the appliance is installed on an oven, you must avoid running the gas tube round the
back of the oven in order to avoid overheating.
Connection to the gas supply network can be made using a rigid copper hose or a flexible
steel hose with a continuous wall and in compliance with the guidelines established by
the applicable standard. To facilitate the connection, connector A on the back of the
appliance can be orientated laterally; loosen hexagonal nut B, twist connector A into the
desired position then retighten hexagonal nut B (it is sealed with a rubber gasket). Once
the operation is complete, check the hose fittings for leaks using a soapy solution; never
use a flame. The hob is preset for natural gas G20 (2H) at a pressure of 20 mbar. To set
it up for supply using other types of gas, see “5. ADAPTATION TO DIFFERENT TYPES
OF GAS”. The gas inlet connection is threaded ½” for external gas (ISO 228-1).
Connection with a rigid copper hose: The connection to
the gas supply network must be made in such a way that it
does not cause stresses of any type on the appliance. The
connection can be made using the adapter unit D with
double cone, always inserting gasket C (provided) in
between.
Connection with a flexible steel hose: use only
continuous wall stainless steel hoses that comply with the
applicable standards, making sure to always insert gasket
C (provided) between connector A and flexible hose E.
Installation with the flexible hose must be carried out so that the length of the piping
does not exceed 2 metres when fully extended; make sure that the hoses do not come
into contact with moving parts and that they are not crushed in any way.
4.1 Connection to liquid gas
Use a pressure regulator and make the connection on the gas cylinder following the
guidelines set out in the regulations in force. Make sure that the feed pressure
complies with the values indicated in the table in “5.2 Adjustment for liquid gas”.
4.2 Room ventilation
The room containing the appliance should have a permanent air supply in accordance
with the standards in force. The room where the appliance is installed must have
enough air flow for the regular combustion of gas and for the air exchange needed in
the room itself. The air vents, protected by grills, must be suitably dimensioned in
compliance with the current regulations and positioned so that no part of them is
obstructed.
The room must be kept adequately ventilated in order to eliminate the heat and
humidity produced by cooking: in particular, after prolonged use, you are
recommended to open a window or to increase the speed of any fans.
4.3 Extraction of the combustion products
Installation must first comply with the regulations in force and must comply with the
regulation distances and positions.
Hoods set to Recirculation mode may be used only if all other ventilation requirements
and regulations are met in full.
Combustion gases may also be discharged by means of hoods connected to a flue or
ducting providing a reliable natural draft, or a fan extraction system.
An effective extraction system requires careful design by an authorised specialist,
After installation, the installer must issue a certificate of compliance.

fitting is placed over the grill on the burner top
as shown in the figure alongside.
7.1 Positioning the racks
The racks are provided separate unassembled on the hob. To position each rack
correctly on its burner, follow the instructions below:
Each rack must be positioned on the
corresponding burner in order to guarantee proper
operation.
Be very careful to match the different central
diameters of the racks to the flame-spreader
crowns.
29
Instructions for the user
At the ends of the legs of the racks there are
silicone rests with a hole that must be centred
onto the matching fixing pins on the hob.
To position the rack, you first
need to centre the fastening
pins (1) and (2) and then lower
it until it is resting on the hob.
When properly positioned, the
legs of the racks must not be

The appliance is equipped with electronic ignition. Simply press the knob and
simultaneously turn it anticlockwise to the minimum flame symbol , until it lights. Hold
down the knob for about 2 seconds to keep the flame lit and to activate the safety
device. The burner may go out when the knob is released. If this happens, repeat the
procedure, holding the knob down for longer.
When the burner is lit, the relevant activation knob will light up to indicate this. The
knob will turn off a few seconds after it is turned to the O position or if the burner goes
out accidentally. The knob light turns on and off gradually.
If the burners should go out accidentally, after about 20 seconds the safety device will
be tripped, cutting off the gas supply, even if the gas tap is open.
7.3 Practical tips for using the burners
For better burner performance and minimum gas consumption, pans with
flat, even bases and with lids should be used, and their size should be in
proportion to the burner (see “7.5 Pan diameters”).
During cooking, in order to avoid burns or damage to the hob top, all pans
or griddles must be positioned inside the outer edge of the hob and at a
minimum distance of 5-7 cm must be maintained from the knobs.
