ware and towels) as well as flammable liquids. Do not store explosives, such as aero
sol cans, on or near the range top.
The following situations could cause bodily injury or property
damage.
DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE BURNERS OR AREAS NEAR THESE
BURNERS. Surface burners maybe hot even though the flame is not visible. Areas
near surface burners maybe come hot enough to cause burns. During and after use,
do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials touch these areas until
they have had sufficient time to cool.
NEVER use this appliance as a space heater to heat or warm the room. Doing
so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning.

Wear proper apparel. Loose fitting or hanging garments should never be worn
while using the appliance. Do not let clothing or other flammable materials contact
surface burners until they have had sufficient time to cool.
When heating fa-tor grease, watch it closely and do not leave unattended.
Fa-tor grease may catch fire if allowed to become too hot.
Do not use water or flour on grease fires. Smother the fire with a pan lid, baking
soda or use a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
Operate of the Surface Burners. When the burners are operated for the first
time, a small amount of smoke maybe generated due to tape residue or
manufacturing lubrication. THIS IS NOT DANGEROUS. Operate the burners
for about five minutes to rid the burners of this material before cooking.
Use only dry pot holders. Wet or damp pot holders on hot surfaces can result in burns
from steam. Do not let the pot holder touch hot heating areas. Do not use a towel or
other bulky clothing stead of a pot holder.
Use proper flame size. Adjust flame size that so it does not extend beyond the edge of
the utensil. The use of under sized cookware will expose apportion of the burner flame
and may result in severe burns or direct contact and ignition of clothing. Also, proper
relationship of utensil to burner will improve efficiency.
Know which knob controls each burner. Place a pan of food on the burner
before turn ignition, and turn the burner off before removing the pan. Always
turn to the ignite position when lighting top burners. Then adjust the flame size
so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.
Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend over adjacent surface
burners. To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable e materials, and spillage due
to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of a utensil should be positioned so
that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface burners.
Never leave the surface burners unattended. Boil over scan leave greasy spills that can
create excess smoke or a fire hazard, and cookware that has boiled dry may warp or melt.
Allow parts to cool to room temperature before touching or removing them from
the range top. When a surface burner is first turned off, the burner and grate are hot
enough to cause burns.
Clean the range top regularly to keep all parts clean of grease or residue which
could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area under neath each surface burner. Do
not allow fa-tor grease to accumulate. If a hood has been installed for use with the
range top, ensure that it is kept clean and in good working order. Greasy deposits in the
fan could catch fire. Refer to the hood manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.

INSTALLATION GUIDE AND USER MANUAL
These cook tops must be installed in conjunction with a suitable overhead vent
hood. Due to the high capacity of these professional cook tops, attention should
be paid to the hood and duct work installation to ensure it meets local building
codes.
To eliminate risk of burns or fire by reaching overheated surfaces, unit cabinet’s
storage located above the cooking surface should be avoided
Do not use a “cyclonic” range top hood with this product. Some range top
hoods circulate air by blowing downward toward the range top then drawing the air
back up into the hood. This creates a “cyclonic” air wash that is designed for
electric range tops only. A “cyclonic” hood may cause the burners of a gas range
top to operate improperly.
Glazed cooking utensils: Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic,
earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for cooking due to the sudden
change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for range top
use.
Do not place plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic
wrappings on top of the range top. These items could melt or ignite. Pot
holders, towels or wooden spoons could catch fire if place too close to the flame.
Do not use a wok equipped with a metal ring that extends beyond the
burner. Because this ring traps heat, the burner and grate could be damaged.
Also, the burner may not work properly, creating a carbon monoxide level above
current health standards.
Flexible Connectors: If the gas range top is connected to a gas supply
with a metal flexible connector, disconnect the range top with CAUTION
for service or cleaning.
Flexible connectors are not intended for repeated bending. Do not allow
cleaners to make contact with flexible connectors.
The connect or and its fittings are designed for use only on the original
installation and are not to be reused for another appliance or at an other
location.Connectors must comply with A NSIZ 21.24.

Guidelines for using range top burners
There are dual burners have the same low turn-down setting (SIM) for gentle simmering
(620 BTU/hr). Use the SIM setting for melting chocolate and butter, cooking rice and
delicate sauces, simmering soups and stews, and keeping cooked food hot.
Never leave the cook top unattended when in use. Boil over causes smoking and greasy
spills that may ignite.
Never allow flames to extend beyond cookware or curl up its sides. This could discolor
and damage the utensil and you may get burned touching a hot handle.
Keep handles out of the way. Turn handles so that they don’t extend over the edge of the
range or another burner that is on.
Take care when deep-frying. Oil or fat can overheat very quickly, particularly on a high
setting.
Make sure that all burner parts are properly in place. Incorrectly or incompletely
assembled burners may produce dangerous flames. See‘Replacing the burner parts’ in
‘Care and cleaning’.
Keep the burners clean. Especially after a spill or boil over, make sure you clean the
affected burners before using them again. Food residue may clog the igniter and the
notches of the flame spreader, stopping the burner from functioning correctly. See ‘Care
and cleaning’ for instructions.
Check that the burner flames are regular. They should be blue with no yellow tipping,
and burn without fluttering all around the burner cap. If not, see ‘Troubleshooting’ for
advice.

INSTALLATION GUIDE AND USER MANUAL
To light the top burners, push and turn the appropriate control knob counter clockwise to
the “HI” position. You will hear a clicking noise – the sound of the electric spark
igniting the burner. Once burner ignition has been achieved, then turn the burner control
knob to adjust the the desired heat setting.
NOTE:When one burner is turned to the “HI” position, the burner igniters will park.
Do not attempt to disassemble or clean around any burner while another burner is on. Do
not touch any burner cap, burner base, or igniter while the igniters are sparking.
Simmer and Boil
1. A smaller flame will give the best simmer results. Small flames offer precise cooking
performance for delicate foods, keeping food warm, melting chocolate or butter, and for
cooking that need to cook over low heat for a long time.
2. The highest (larger) flame settings provide the maximum heat that is available on your
range. This setting should be used for heavy cooking loads such as water boiling or pasta
cooking.
Flame Size
When you select the flame size, watch the flame when you turn the knob.
Any flame larger than the bottom of the cookware is wasted.
The flame should be steady and blue in color. Foreign material in the gas line may cause
an orange flame during initial operation.

minutes for any gas to dissipate. Repeat the lighting procedure.
If the power fails, it is not capable of being safely placed in operation and user that no
attempt should be made to operate during power failure.
Cook top
To prevent the cook top from discoloring or staining, clean cook top after each use, and
wipe up acidic or sugary spills as soon as the cook top has cooled.
The sealed burners of your range are not sealed to your cook top and are designed to be
removed. Boil overs or spills will not seep underneath the cook top. The burners should
be cleaned after each use.
