Gas adjustments
Use pressure regulators that are suitable for the gas
pressure values indicated in the Product Description Sheet
supplied separately.
If the appliance is arranged for a type of gas different from that
available, it is necessary to change the injectors, adjust the
minimum flame, change the outlet connector.
Carry out the following operations to change the hob injectors:
remove the grills; remove the burners, the burner caps
(see Fig. 5); change the injector and replace it with one suitable
for the new type of gas (see table in separate Product Sheet).
Replace the gas calibration label with the new label included in the
injector bag.
Refit everything in reverse order, making sure to correctly fit the
burner cap on the burner.
Minimum for hob taps
To adjust the minimum flame, proceed as follows:
• Light the burner and turn the knob to minimum ; remove
the tap knob (Fig. 6). Insert a small screwdriver next to the tap
pin (Fig. 7).
Attention: in taps with security valve, the minimum adjusting
screws is placed outside the rod tap (fig. 7A).
Turn the adjustment screw anticlockwise to increase the flame,
or clockwise to decrease it. Adjustment is correct when the flame
is approx. 3 - 4 mm.
The adjustment screw must be completely screwed down for
butane/propane gas.
Make sure the flame does not go out when switching suddenly
from high to low
flame and vice versa.
Refit the knob.

To do this,
unscrew the screw (A) in order to rotate the metal ring at the
end of the burner (Fig. 13).
In this way entrance of the air increases or decreases, obtaining a
correct flame.
Be sure that the flame does not lift or light back or present a
yellow coloration.
To do this,
unscrew the screw (A) in order to slip it forwards or backwards
(Fig. 14).
In this way entrance of the air increases or decreases obtaining a

Oven minimum flame adjustment
Light the oven burner at max. setting.
Close the door. Turn the knob to min. After approx. 20 minutes (at least to obtain first activation of the
thermostat), proceed as follows: remove the oven knob and insert a small screwdriver outside the
thermostat, as shown in the figure 7A.
Turn the adjustment screw clockwise to increase the flame and anticlockwise to decrease it. For correct

Room ventilation
Gas appliances
This appliance is not connected to a fume exhaust device.
Therefore it must be installed and connected in compliance with
current installation regulations.
Particular attention must be paid to the applicable standards
concerning room airing.
Room ventilation
This appliance can only be installed and used in well-ventilated
rooms, according to current regulations, with openings in the
walls or with special ducts enabling proper natural or forced
ventilation, thus ensuring permanent and adequate introduction
of air necessary for correct combustion and for extraction of
vitiated air.
In particular, if there is only this gas appliance in the room, a hood
must be installed above the appliance to ensure natural and direct
extraction of the vitiated air, with a straight vertical duct of length
equal to at least twice the diameter and a minimum section of at
least 100 cm2.
For the indispensable introduction of fresh air in the room, a
similar opening of at least 100 cm2 directly to the outside must be
provided at a height near floor level so as not to be obstructed on
the inside or outside of the wall and not to hinder the correct
combustion of the burners and the regular extraction of vitiated
air, and with a height difference of at least 180 cm with respect to
the outlet opening.
The quantity of air necessary for combustion must not be less
than 2 m3/h for every kW of power (see total power in kW on the
appliance rating plate).
In all other cases, when there are other appliances in the same
room, or when direct natural ventilation is not possible and
indirect natural ventilation of forced ventilation has to be created,
contact a qualified specialist for carrying out installation and
preparing the possible ventilation system in strict compliance with
current regulations.
Flues already used by other appliances must not be used for
exhausting combustion products.
Important: The covering of the cabinets must be in heat
resistant (min. 90°C) material.
If the appliance is installed next to kitchen cabinets, ensure the
minimum clearances indicated in the following figure 16.
There are certain points to pay attention to when positioning the
cooker. Make sure to take into consideration the following
recommendations, in order to prevent any problems and
hazardous situations that may occur!
The cooker can be positioned near other cabinets provided their
height does not exceed the hob level.
In selecting a position for the cooker, make sure the appliance is
not placed next to a refrigerator and that there are no flammable
or combustible materials in the vicinity, such as curtains, etc.
which can quickly catch fire.
A minimum space of 20 mm between the metal rear cover of the
cooker and the wall is required to ensure air circulation.
If the counter tops are higher than hob level, they should be at
least 110 mm from the sides of the cooker.
To fit them, tilt the appliance and screw the 4 feet in the special
threads located in the corners (see Fig. 17).
Adjust leveling Legs
If range height adjustment is necessary, manually adjust the
leveling leg sleeves to loosen the 4 leveling legs. Leveling legs can
be loosened to add uo to a maximum of 5 cm.
This may be done with the range on its back or with the range
supported on 2 legs after the range has been placed back to a
standing position.
NOTE: To place range back up to a standing position, put a sheet
of cardboard or hardboard in front of the range. Using 2 or more
people, stand range back up onto the cardboard or hardboard.

To clean the hob burners, lift them out of their seats (Fig. 1) and
place in a solution of hot water and non-abrasive detergent for
about 10 minutes. After cleaning and washing the burners,
thoroughly dry them.
Always make sure the openings are not blocked. It is
advisable to carry out this operation at least once a week or
whenever necessary. Make sure to properly refit the burners,
turning them slowly so that the burner caps engage in the injector
holder seat (if perfectly centred, the burner lowers a little and
locks in place).
Pan support maintenance
• Clean the pan supports with a sponge and detergent
whenever dirty.
• The pan supports will change colour near the burners. This is
perfectly normal and is due to the high temperature reached
during cooking.
