4. Gas connection
Use pipe-joint compound made for use with Natural U.L.P. gas.
The burner it controls is shown next to each knob (the
example corresponds to the front left burner).
This appliance is suitable for installation with Natural
Gas or ULPG (propane). Refer to page 12 for the
relevant burner pressure and appropriate injector sizes.
When the appliance is to be connected to Natural Gas
then the pressure regulator supplied must be fitted to the
gas inlet. A test point (for checking the gas pressure) is
supplied either with the regulator or as a separate fitting
in the case of ULPG (propane) appliances.
Connection of the appliance to the gas supply must be in
accordance with the requirements of AS5601. A 1/2” BSP connector
at the inlet is recommended and the gas supply line to the
appliance must be of adequate length to allow sufficient withdrawal
of appliance for service or disconnection and be:
1. annealed copper pipe or;
2. flexible hose according to AS/NZ1869 & be at least Class
“B”, 10 mm diameter.
The cooker must be installed with provision to allow the gas to be
turned off and disconnected for servicing and removal of the appliance
as required from the gas supply. Before the cooker is operated make
certain all relevant parts are placed in the correct position.
When the installation is completed the installation connections of
cooker will require to be leak tested, the burner operating pressure
and flame checked and adjusted.
Warranty service calls do not cover these adjustments!
To check the operating pressure of the appliance it is recommended
at least 2 large size burners are used. Ensure appliance is secured
to wall when installation is completed.
N.G. The regulator supplied must be fitted to the 1/2 BSP thread at
the rear of the appliance. An approved manual shut-off valve must
10
be installed. The N.G. regulator must be checked and adjusted to
1.0kPa after installation.
U.L.P.G. Can be connected to the inlet fitting directly.
The pressure must be checked to ensure it is
operating at 2.75kPa. A separate test point fitting
must be installed between the piping & the appliance
for the pressure to be checked to ensure it is operating at 2.75kPa.
4.1 Connection to ULPG
Use a pressure regulator and make the connection to the tank
according to the provisions of standards regulations in force. Make
sure that feed pressure conforms to the levels shown in the table in
paragraph “5.2 Regulation for ULPG”.
4.2 Ventilation of rooms
Caution – This hob may only be installed and operated in rooms
permanently ventilated in accordance with current regulations. For
proper operation of a gas appliance it is essential for the air necessary
for combustion of the gas to be able to flow naturally into the room. Air
must flow directly into the room through openings in its outside walls.
This (these) opening (s) must have a free passage cross-section of at
least 100 cm2, or 200 cm2 for appliances not equipped with gas safety
device. These openings must be constructed so that they cannot be
obstructed indoors or outdoors, and should preferably be close to the
floor on the side opposite to the combustion gas discharge point. If it is
not possible to make the openings in the room where the cooker is
installed, the necessary air may be taken from an adjoining room,
proveded it is not a bedroom or a room with fire risk.
4.3 Discharge of combustion products
Discharge of combustion products must be guaranteed by means of
hoods connected to a natural draught flue with certain efficiency, or
by means of forced aspiration. An efficient aspiration system
requires careful planning by a specialist capable of installing it,
respecting the positions and distances prescribed by standards.
After installation, the installer must issue a certificate of conformity.

Instructions for the user
7. Using the hob
Make sure that the flame-baffle crowns, the caps and the grid
have been assembled correctly. Grid C (supplied) should be
used for “woks” (Chinese pots). Adapter B (supplied) is to be
used for small vessels.
7.1 Ignition of the burners with safety device
For each knob the corresponding burner is indicated. The device is
fit with electronic ignition. Simply press and simultaneously turn the
knob counter-clockwise on the low point flame symbol, until the
burner is ignited. Concerning models with valves, push the knob for
approximately 2 seconds in order to keep the flame burning and to
activate the safety device. The burner might go off when the knob is
released. In this case repeat the aforesaid operation keeping the
knob pressed for more than 2 seconds.
Should the burners go off accidentally in the models with valves,
a safety device will trip after approximately 20 seconds to block
the gas outlet even if the cock is open.
7.2 Practical advice for using the burners
For better use of the burners and lower gas
consumption, use covered containers that are
proportional in size to the burner to prevent the
flame from licking the sides (see paragraph “7.3
Diameter of containers”). When water reaches the
boiling point, lower the flame so that it doesn’t
overflow. To avoid burns or damage to the hob, all
recipients or griddle plates must be placed within the
perimeter of the hob, at a distance of 3-4 cm from the knobs.
17
Instructions for the user
All containers have to have a flat and smooth bottom. When using
fats or oils, be extremely careful that they don’t overheat and catch
fire. If the flame accidentally goes out, turn off the control knob and
wait at least 1 minute before trying to re-light the burner.

7.4 Using a griddle plate
A few precautions are necessary if you wish to use a griddle plate:
• leave a gap of at least 160 mm between the edge of the griddle
plate and the side wall;
• if one of the burners close to the wooden rear wall is of triple flame
type, leave a gap of at least 160 mm between this wall and the
edge of the griddle plate;
• do not allow the burner flames to extend beyond the edge of the
griddle plate;
• operate the burners underneath the griddle plate for 10 minutes at
maximum power, then turn them down to the minimum setting.
Never use the griddle plate for more than 45 minutes.

8. Cleaning and maintenance
Never use a steam jet to clean the appliance.
Before any intervention, disconnect the power supply of the
device.
8.1 Cleaning
Clean the cooking top regularly every time you use it, obviously
after it has cooled.
8.1.1 Regular daily cleaning of the hob
In order to clean and preserve the surface, always use specific
products only, which do not contain abrasive substances or
chlorine-based acid substances.
How to use: pour the product on a damp cloth and wipe the
surface, rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth or deerskin.
8.1.2 Food stains or residues
Do not use metallic sponges or sharp scrapers: they will
damage the surface. Use normal non-abrasive products and
remove spots or residuals with non-scratch sponges or, if
need be, with wood or plastic utensils. Rinse thoroughly and
dry with a soft cloth or deerskin.
8.2 Cleaning of cooking hob components
Grids, caps, flame cap crowns and burners can be
removed for ease of cleaning. Wash them in warm
water using a non-abrasive detergent, taking care to
remove all tough spots. Before remounting, allow the
components to fully dry out.
19
Instructions for the user
CAUTION: do not wash these components in a dishwasher. In
normal use of the hob, the stainless steel burner caps and panstands tend to be burnished by the high temperature. Clean
these parts using very fine abrasive sponges or similar
commercial products. Then use a specific paste polish to
restore the steel’s shine. Your local authorised after-sales
technician is able to supply professional products for appliance
cleaning and care.
8.2.1 Ignition plugs and safety devices
For good functioning of the lighting ignition plugs and the
safety devices, keep them very clean.
Check frequently and clean with a damp cloth when
necessary.
