Use and Care
To light the burners
To light the burner, press the control knob down completely and
hold down before rotating anti-clockwise to the ‘High’ Flame
position. The ignition device is integrated into the control knob and
is automatically activated by pushing down on the control knob.
After lighting the flame, keep the knob pressed for about 5
seconds: this time is necessary to heat up the thermocouple (D on
page 7) and activate the safety valve, which would otherwise cut
off the gas flow.
In the instance of a power failure, place a lit match near the burner
and proceed as described above. If the flame does not light after
the first attempt, wait 5 minutes for the gas to dissipate before
attempting to re-light the burner.
Once lit, check that the flame is even and turn the control knob to
adjust the flame as required. If the flame is uneven, check that the
'burner head/skirt' and 'burner cap' are correctly positioned. To
turn off the flame, turn the control knob clockwise to the ‘Off’
position ( symbol). Before removing pots or pans from the
burners, always turn off the flame.

Use and Care
Using the Dual Valve Wok burner (not all models)
The Dual Valve Wok burner has the advantage of providing both
very high or very low heat when needed.
The powerful 5kW Dual Flame provides high heat when frying,
boiling or searing is required. It can also be turned to the lowest
point where only the small inner flame remains alight to provide a
low heat for simmering or keeping the dish warm.
Follow the instructions below to light the burner.
When turning the flame down from the 'High'
position (2) to
the 'Low'
position (3) only the outer flame turns down.
After this point, the outer flame turns off and the inner flame
begins to turn down until it reaches the 'Low' flame position (4).
When turning the flame up again, the outer flame automatically
relights starting in the 'Low' position (3).

user error or installation faults WILL NOT be covered under
warranty.
General troubleshooting
For all issues with the burners, please check the following items
first:
1.DO NOT cover any part of the cooktop with foil. As well as being
very dangerous, this can cause issues with burners not igniting or
burning incorrectly.
2.Make sure all parts of the burner referred to on page 7 are clean
and dry. Food particles or built up grime can block the flow of gas.
3. Check the burner heads and caps are positioned correctly.
Compare each burner to the other burners. Check that the caps
are on the correct burner head and are sitting flat and even.
Both caps positioned correctly
The cap on the left is from
the wrong burner head
OTHER IMPORTANT WARNINGS:
DO NOT leave cooking unattended. Fats or oils may catch fire if
overheated. Boil overs may cause damage to the cooktop if not
contained immediately.
Using pans which are too large for a particular burner may cause
higher temperatures on other surfaces such as control knobs.
Please see the sizing guide for pans on page 11.

Cooktop issues (continued)
Ignitor keeps clicking:
It is most likely some moisture has entered the ignition switches
under the knobs. This may be from spillage or when cleaning with
liquids. Turn off the cooktop at the power point and allow 24-48
hours for it to dry out before switching it back on.
Note: Water will dry out. Oil will take much longer or may not dry
out at all.
All burners spark when trying to light one:
This is normal. The ignition for all the burners is linked. A burner
will only light when you turn the knob, providing it with gas.
If required, please call the Technika service department
on 1800 333 244.
