INSTALLATION
Installing a domestic appliance can be a complicated operation which if not
carried out correctly, can seriously affect consumer safety.
It is for this reason that the task should be undertaken by a professionnally
qualified person who will carry it out in accordance with the technical regulations
in force.
In the event that this advice is ignored and the installation is carried out by an
unqualified person, CANDY declines all responsibility for any technical failure
of the product whether or not it results in damage to goods or injury to
individuals.
' Before installing the hob :
! make sure that the appliance is compatible with the gas supply source.
The hob is pre-set in the factory to work with the type of gas shown on the packing
and the plate attached to it.
Natural gas G 20-20 mbar / G 25-25 mbar : mains gas
" if necessary, adapt the hob for use with another t ype of gas : if the hob
must be used with another type of gas than the gas pre-set in the factory, it is necessary
to adapt the hob gas burners (page 24/25).
The procedure for adaptation consists of :
. fitting the correct jets to ensure nominal delivery,
. adjusting the appearance of the flame by regulating the air ring according to the
data given in the table.
' For installation :
# built-in the hob (page 26/27).
$ make the gas connection according to the type of gas to be used : based on
the gas to be used, choose the appropriate gas connection (page 28).
Warning : certain countries request the setting of a tapered connector. Follow the
special instructions in page 28.
% make the hob electrical connection according to the instructions (page
29).
& adjusting the minimum flame of the taps : if necessary, adjust the minimum
flame of the taps by turning the by-pass screw (page 30).
All modification concerning the hob gas setting must be indicated on the plate sticked
on the hob.

INSTALLATION: "BUILDING-IN"
BUILDING-IN : both the unit into which the hob will be fitted and any adjacent kitchen
furniture must be made of heat resistant material and fixed with heat resistant adhesive.
If, when installing the hob, the lower part of the casing is adjacent to an area normally
accessible when handling or cleaning, fit a partition 1 cm below the base of the casing to avoid
any risk of burning or damage.
There should also be a 5 cm gap between the appliance and all adjacent vertical surfaces.
A foam adhesive is supplied with the hob. Stick this seal under the edge of the body as near
as possible to the outer edge of the hob. Press round the edges of the hob, so that the seal
flattens out and ensures an air tight seal.

The mains electricity supply connected to the appliance should comply with the norms in
force in the country of installation.
Connection to the mains electricity supply should be through a socket with an earth terminal,
or through an intermediary switching device with a gap between contacts of at least 3 mm.
The power supply unit must be protected by appropriate fuses and use cables of a large
enough cross section to provide a normal supply to the appliance.
The hob is fitted with a power supply cable* which allow it to be connected only to a power
supply of 230 V between phases, or between phase and neutral.
• Connect to a 10/16 Amp socket. Before connecting, it is compulsory
to check :
. the power supply tension shown on the electricity meter,
. the adjustment of the circuit breaker, and
. the fuse rating 10A.
Note : the socket must be reachable for any eventual repair. Take care of its location
at the time you install the hob.
Warning : before proceeding with the connection, check the continuity of the
earthing of the power supply unit.
We cannot be held responsible for any accident which has resulting from the use
of an appliance which is not connected to earth, or whose earthing is defective.
* The eventual replacement of the supplying cord must be carried on by the After Sales
Service or by an agreed engineer, with a cord whose characteristics must be similar to the
original one :
. Gas hob : cord type H05 V2V2-F, 3 G 0,75 section,
. Mixed hob : cord type H05 V2V2-F, 3 G 1,5 section.

fully home, without being locked.
THE GAS BURNER
THE VERY FAST or VERY FAST "DOUBLE RING" BURNER has a power rating
of 3,2 kW :
Use the large burner for bringing to the boil, for cooking large quantities, and generally for
all foods requiring rapid cooking.
THE FAST BURNER has a power rating of 2,5 kW :
It is ideal for stewing, sauces and slow cooking.
THE SEMI-FAST BURNER has a power rating of 1,45 kW :
Use this small burner for small pans.
For a proper use of the burners, choose pans which match the dimensions given below :
* Very fast
Ø 18 cm and more
* Very fast double crown Ø 18 cm and more
* Fast
Ø from 16 to 18 cm
* Semi-fast
Ø 12 cm
On models fitted with cast iron pan supports,
we supply a reduction pan support to use pans with
dimensions of less than Ø 12 cm.
SOME TIPS ....
• Pans with curved, ridged or warped bottoms are not recommended.
• Avoid boiling food too intensely. Food is not cooked any more quickly this way. In fact,
it is subjected to severe agitation, which may cause the food to lose some of its flavour.
• To save gas, make sure that the flames do not overlap the bottom of the pan.
• Do not use the gas burner with an empty pan.
RECOMMENDATIONS : when the burners are not in service, the general gas
supply tap should always be turned off.
31
THE GAS BURNER
Each burner is contolled by a tap with progressive settings allowing :
* a wider choice of settings from the maximum position to the lowest and most precise one,
* easier flame regulation according to the pan diameter,
* no risk of cutting off the flame or switching off when the flame is turned down quickly.
Each burner is fitted with automatic ignition. The ignition can be made with one hand, while
you have the pan in the other hand.
USE :
• Turn on the gas tap,
• A symbol next to each control knob indicated which burner is ignited.
Hob with automatic ignition integrated on the knob :
• Press and turn the knob until position "High flame" keeping it pressed to produce
sparks which in turn ignite the burner.
Hob with safety device on the burner and automatic ignition integrated on the
knob :
The thermocouple fast safety is a device allowing the automatic cut-out of the gas
supplying on the burner, in case the flame dies out accidentally.
• Press and turn the knob until position "High flame" keeping it pressed to produce
sparks which in turn ignite the burner. Keep the pression on the control knob a few
seconds to permit the releasing of the safety device.
• Set the flame according to your cooking requirements.
Intermediate positions are available between the "High flame" and "Low
settings on the control knob.
flame"
• To turn the flame out, turn the control knob back to stop position.
Please note :
. if there is a power cut, the burner can be ignited by pressing in and turning the knob
to position "High flame" and holding a naked flame to the burner.
32
THE HOT PLATE
THE SPEED PROTECTED HOT PLATE fitted to the mixed hob is located at the
rearleft.
This is a cast-iron hot plate, controlled by a 7 positions commutator.
An internal thermostat cuts off part of the power supply if there is any abnormal heating.
(if, for example, a hot plate is working without a pan on it).
BEFORE USING THE ELECTRICAL HOT PLATE :
• Before using the electric hot plate for the first time, let it heat up for a few minutes,
without a pan, at maximum temperature to let the protective coating harden.
HOW TO USE :
• For best results, it is advisable to start on the maximum heat and then turn back
to an intermediate temperature taking into account the type and volume of the food.
• An indicator light comes on to show that the hot plate is operating.
• To switch off, turn the knob back to the starting point " ".
THE DIFFERENT TEMPERATURE SETTINGS :
Below are a few examples which are given as guidelines. When you become more
familiar with the appliance, you will be able to choose settings to suit your own
personal tastes and requirements.

Cooking with the electrical hot plate
To get the best results from your appliance it is important to observe the following :
• Use thick, flat-bottomed cooking vessel :
a completely flat bottom prevents the overheating of some points which cause food to stick.
Thick metal allows for good heat distribution.
• Make sure that the bottoms of pan are dry :
this will prevent things from sticking to the hot plate because of moisture.
• Use pans with a diameter large enough to completely cover the hot plate,
otherwise some of the energy will be wasted and if there are any spillages the hot plate will
quickly become stained and difficult to maintain (rust, etc.).
• Never leave a hot plate switched on without a pan on it : it could become deformed,
which would reduce its efficiency.
• When cooking with fat or oil, never leave the hob unattented,very hot fats and
oils can quickly catch fire.
• When the hot plate is hot, avoid any contact with materials made of plastic or aluminium
foil.
Caution :
the heating surfaces clearly get hot while operating, so make sure that small
children are kept well away from the hob.
34
CLEANING
Before all cleaning or dismantling operation, it is imperative to :
. disconnect the hob to the mains supply,
. let all parts of the hob cool down.
Never use :
harsh abrasives, scouring pads or sharp object to clean the hob.
• GENERAL MAINTENANCE
THE HOB
. Enamelled steel hob : simply clean the enamelled hob with soapy water when the hob is
cold, rinse and wipe with a clean dry cloth. If you clean the enamelled hob when it is hot,
you may tarnish it.
. Stainless steel : clean with soapy water, rinse and dry. You can use a special product to
clean stainless steel which is available in stores.
THE KNOBS - For thorough cleaning, the control knobs can be removed by pulling them
upwards.
Clean with soapy water, rinse and dry well before replacing.
THE GAS BURNERS
For current cleaning, it is recommended to remove all greasy or burnt deposits with
ammoniacal products or usual cleaning products.
• The burner cap : it is simply placed on the burner.
Remove the pan support, the burner cap and clean it with a slightly soapy sponge. Rinse
and dry.
The enamelled steel burner cap : do not immerse it in cold water after use, this will prevent
the enamel cracking as a result of thermal shock.
• The burner body : regular cleaning will maintain the appliance original appearance.
Clean with a soapy sponge, rinse and dry. If the holes become clogged, brush the caps using
soapy water and dry with a clean cloth.
• The double ring burner : the slot existing on the big ring must
never be obstructed as it allows the ignition of the small ring.
Slot

When re-assembling the burners, make sure that the burner caps and the burners
themselves are dry and after, seat them correctly.
Be careful not to let any water get into the burners.
35
CLEANING
THE PAN SUPPORT
According to the model, the pan support are made of chrome steel, enamelled steel or castiron.
They are simply placed on the hob. Lift them up to remove them.
For the maintenance of the pan support, never use harsh abrasives, scouring pads or sharp
objects as this will cause irreparable damage to the enamel.
When the pan support is cold, simply clean with soapy water, rinse and dry with a clean
cloth.
THE HOT PLATE
Heat it for a while if necessary, to burn the deposits. After switching off and cooling down
of the plate, wipe it with an absorbing paper. In any cases, it is important to protect the hot
plate from humidity.
Do not use abrasive products.
To maintain and preserve the appearance, rub a drop of neutral oil, such as sewing machine
oil into the surface of the hot plate.
The hot plate should always be dry, or slightly greasy, if it is not to be used for some time.
Remove any rust using emery paper followed by a suitable commercially available product.
