LIGHTING THE GAS BURNERS
Gas burners
The flow of gas to the burners is regulated by the controls knobs. Depending on the model,
the graphic symbols are printed on the knobs or the control panel (Fig. 6). The indicator
symbols are:
Valve closed, no gas flow
Maximum capacity, maximum gas flow
Minimum capacity, minimum gas flow
Turning On and Off
Each control knob is clearly marked with the burner that it controls.
Lighting with electronic ignition
These models are identified with the
symbol near to the
symbol (maximum flow).
To light one or more burners, press and turn the knob to maximum flow and hold it down until
the burner is lit; turn the knob until the desired flame is obtained.
Note:
If it is difficult to light the burner with the knob in the maximum position because of
local gas flow, we recommend repeating the operation with the knob turned to a lower
level.
Lighting without electronic ignition
To turn on burners without electric ignition, or when there is no electrical power in models with
ignition, place a flame near to the upper part of the burner, press and turn the knob anticlockwise so that it points to the
symbol on the panel. To turn the burner off, turn the knob
clockwise until it points directly upwards.
Burners with safety valves
Some models have safety valves which automatically interrupts gas flow should the flame be
extinguished for any reason.
Turn the gas control knob to maximum and then press and hold it down for about 4 to 5
seconds. Release the knob and adjust the flame by turning the knob until it reaches the
desired intensity.
Warning:
Do not activate the electronic ignition for longer than 15 seconds.
If it still has not lit after this time, wait for 1 minute before repeating the operation.
Dual Control Wok Burners
Cooktops fitted with Dual control wok burners have the latest in gas cooking burner
technology. Dual control means that the burner can be used for a variety of cooking
applications. One control operates the gas flow to the centre burner for simmering and low
heat and the other control operates the outer ring for large vessels and woks. The burners
operate independently of each other and can operated separately or in tandem for maximum
output.

USING THE GAS COOKTOP
Pan supports (trivets)
The trivets were designed to make the cooktop easy and safe to use.
We recommend checking their exact position and stability on the cooktop before each use.
Furthermore, check that the supporting rubbers are integral and correctly positioned.
Small vessel support (Fig. 4 Optional)
Only use the auxiliary burner ring (the smallest)for vessels with a small diameter to prevent
them from tipping and to maximise efficiency.
WOK Burner stand (Fig. 5 optional – design may vary to image)
Only use the wok stand for WOKs (concave bases). In order to avoid serious burner
malfunction, we recommend using the wok stand at all times for Woks with curved bases but
do not use it for vessels with flat bottoms.
Choosing the burner
Choosing the most adapt burner depends on the vessels’ diameter and capacity (see table).
It is important that the pan’s diameter matches the burner power to maximise efficiency.

COOKTOP INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Installation on the kitchen bench
The cooktop can be installed on materials as long as they are heat-resistant (minimum
temperature 100°C). Clearances from combustable surfaces must be 120mm all around to
comply with AS5601 regulations.
The size of the hole to be cut into the kitchen bench and the minimum distance between the
back, side and overhead walls are shown in figures 7, 8, and 9.
Note that:
1. When the cooktop is installed over a vacant cavity (ie without oven below)a separate
panel must be installed beneath the underside of the cooktop base at a distance of at
least 10 mm.
2. When the cooktop is installed over an oven a divider panel at a minimum distance of
15mm is required, and following the oven supplier’s instructions, maintaining ventilation
as specified in fig. 13.
3. The electrical connection of the two appliances must be carried out separately.
Fixing the cooktop
The cooktop is to be fixed to the bench as follows:
1. Place the sealing gasket supplied along the outside edge of the hole cut into the bench
so that the ends of the strips are perfectly joined without overlapping.
2. Position the cooktop into the hole in the bench making sure it is centered.
3. Attach the cooktop to the bench with the supplied mounts as shown in fig. 10.
4. When the sealing gasket is correctly installed, it will protect the cooktop from intrusion of
liquids.
Connection to the mains
The appliance must be connected to the mains checking that the voltage matches the value
shown on the data plate and that the cicuit can sustain the load indicated on the data plate.
Should the appliance be directly connected to the mains supply, an omni-polar switch, with a
minimum opening of 3mm between contacts, of the right size for the load and responding to the
relevant standards has to be installed between the appliance and the mains supply.
• Do not use reducers, adapters or deviators for mains connection as they could
overheat and burn.
• Earthing the appliance is essential. The manufacturer will not be held responsible
for the non-compliant of this requirement.
If the power supply cable is to be substituted, use a cable with the same characteristics as that
supplied, adapted to load and temperature (type T90°C ). It is also necessary that the end on
the appliance side has a Yellow-Green earth wire 20mm longer than the others.
Consult the table below for the power supply cable dimensions

The instructions are for a qualified installer.
The appliance must be installed correctly, conforming to the laws in force.
Remove the electrical power supply before servicing the appliance.
GAS COOKTOP INSTALLATION
Connecting the gas
These technical instructions have been prepared for the use by Authorised persons.
The requirements of the local Gas and Electrical authorities must be adhered to, consult
AG601/AS5601 as appropriate.
• Before installation, make sure that the gas type (natural gas and LPG) and the
cooktop are compatible. To do this, check the data on the product plate on the
cooktop and on this booklet.
• Gas inlet fitting is 1/2” BSP (male) thread.
• The gas connection is identified in table figure 12.
• Fit regulator supplied for natural gas or supplied LPG test point (as applicable)
• It is recommended that an isolating valve and union be fitted, to enable simple
disconnection for servicing. These are to be in an accessible location.
• Check connections are gas tight with soapy water or other approved method
Flexible Hose Connection
Install with a hose assembly that complies with AS/NZ1869 (AGA Approved). 10mm ID class
Bor D and in accordance with AS5601.
This hose must not exceed 1.2m in length. Ensure that the hose does not contact the hot
surfaces of the cooktop or oven or any other appliance that may be installed underneath or
adjacent to the cooktop. The hose must not be subject to contact from drawers, abrasion or
kinking. All joints must be checked for leakage using soapy water.
Final Check
Operate the burners on high and low flames and check that each burner ignites properly and
has a stable flame. The following may be considered to be abnormal:
•
•
•
•
If the burners have yellow tipping
If the pots are sooting underneath
If the burners fail to ignite properly
If the burners fail to remain alight
When satisfied with the operation of the cooktop please explain to the user the correct method
of operation.

CONVERSION TO DIFFERENT TYPES OF GAS
Should the cooktop need to be converted to a gas different to the one it was intended for, the
injectors have to be replaced.
The injectors are to be installed according to the table on the underside of the cooktop.
Injectors can be identified by the diameter expressed in hundredths of mm printed on the
injector itself.
Modify the inlet gas supply as required and fit either the Natural gas regulator or LPG
test point as appropriate.
Replacing the injectors
1. Remove the gas rings and burner caps from the cooktop.
2. Using a face spanner, replace injectors “J ” (fig. 14) with those specified for the gas to
be used.
3. Reassemble the burners. The burners do not require primary air regulation
Regulating the minimum
Having replaced the injectors, ignite the burner and remove the control knob. Turn the knob to
minimum, insert a screw driver and rotate screw to decrease the flame or unscrew it to increase
the flame. (fig. 14)
The result should be a small constant flame which is even all around the burner crown.
Finally, check that the flame does not go off when quickly turning the valve from maximum to
minimum. On cooktop fitted with flame failure devices, check that the flame slightly brushes the
thermocouple. Check correct regulation by leaving the burner on for a few minutes. If it goes off,
increase the minimum.
Gas checks and adjustments – Pressure Adjustment
First shut off the gas to the appliance. Remove the sealing screw from the regulator test point or
LPG test point at the rear of the cooker and attach a hose from the mamometer to the point.
Turn the gas back and light the largest burner and smallest burner at the maximum setting.
Check the pressure and adjust at the regulator if necessary to the settings in the table or on the
data plate. For LPG adjust at the regulator at the cylinder. Turn the regulator adjusting screw
clockwise to increase the pressure and anti clockwise to reduce the pressure. Refit the test
point sealing screw when finished.
CLEANING
To maintain the cooktop it needs to be cleaned after each use once it has cooled down.
Never remove the knobs from their housing to clean the cooktop.
Enamel parts
All enamel parts should only be washed with a sponge and soapy water or other specifically
non-abrasive products. Dry completely.
Stainless Steel
The stainless steel plane should be cleaned with a damp cloth or with specific stainless steel
cleaning products.
9
After rinsing, dry with soft cloth. Avoid spray cleaners directed onto the graphics and take
care when wiping not to damage the printed graphics on the cooktop.
Cast Iron Trivets
Wipe the trivets with a damp cloth once they have cooled. Do not use cleaning agents or harsh
detergents to clean and dry carefully to prevent spotting or marking. This is important.
Burners
The burners are made up of two pieces and can be removed and cleaned with suitable
products. After cleaning they must be completely dried and replaced exactly into their housings.
• Models with electrical ignition: make sure that electrode “E” (fig. 15) is always clean.
• Models with safety devices: clean probe “T” (fig. 15) so that the safety valve works
properly. The electrode and the probe must be cleaned carefully.
Afterwards, replace the burners precisely into their housings.
To avoid damaging the electric ignition, avoid using it when the burners are not in place.
Ongoing Maintenance
The cooktop will not need particular maintenance; however we recommend a full check at least
once every two years.
Should the control knobs become tight to turn or there is a smell of gas, close the main valve
and call for service. The faulty valve may need to be replaced.
