   When connecting the appliance to the gas supply, follow the regulations of the local gas distributor. Also supplied with the appliance is an adapter for liquid gas, a taper male, and a non metal gasket. On the lower side, the cooking hob is fitted with a gas connection plug with a ISO7-1 R1/2 thread. 7

Adaptation to a different type of gas

   When connecting, the knee R1/2 should be held firmly to prevent it from rotating. For sealing of the connection joints, use a non-metal approved gaskets and approved sealants. The gaskets should only be used once. The thickness of the flat non-metal gaskets should not be deformed more than by 25 percent. This appliance is suitable for connection with rigid pipe or flexible hose. The isolating manual shut-off valve connection point must be accessible when the appliance is installed. Flexible hose assembly must be certified to AS/NZS 1869 class B or D, be of appropriate internal diameter for the total gas consumption, be kept as short as possible (not exceeding 1200mm), must not be in contact with the floor or any hot or sharp surfaces. The hose assembly must not be subject to strain, abrasion, kinking or deformation.

After connecting the gas hob, check the joints for any leaks.

Natural Gas: the supplied regulator must be fitted to the appliance inlet connection. Gas pressure must be adjusted to 1.0 kPa when approximately 50% of the burners are on high flame, the appliance test point is located on the regulator. LPG: the supplied test point adaptor must be fitted to the appliance inlet connection. Gas pressure must be adjusted to 2.75 kPa, the appliance test point is located on the test point adaptor. Gas leakage and operation of the appliance must be tested by the installer before leaving. Check burner flames are blue in colour, stable and completely ignite at both high and low flame settings with no appreciable yellow tipping, carbon deposition, lifting, floating, lighting back or objectionable odour. Test burners individually and in combination. When satisfied with the operation of the cooker, instruct the user on the correct method of operation. Not suitable for use with aftermarket lids or covers. Where the data plate is obscured by cabinetry when the cooker is in the installed position, place the supplied duplicate data plate to a suitable adjacent surface or within this instruction manual for future reference.

Only use pipes and seals in accordance with the Standards

between the pipe and the cook top. . These pipes must be installed so that, when fully extended, their length does not exceed 2000 mm. For easier installation and to prevent gas leaks, attach the swivel coupling to the cook top first, and then to the gas mains pipe. Inverting this sequence may hamper the gas seal

Important: when the installation is complete, check that all couplings are completely sealed by using a soapy solution. Never use a flame. Also ensure that the flexible pipe cannot come into contact with any moving part of the cook top (e.g. drawer) and that it is not in a position where it could be damaged.

After the connection, check the burners for correct operation. The flames must be clearly visible, and should be blue and green at the center. If the flame is unstable, increase the minimum power. • The procedure or adaptation of the cooker to another type of gas does not require removal of the appliance from the worktop. • Before adapting, disconnect the appliance from the power mains and close the gas supply valve. • Replace the existing nozzles for nominal thermal load with corresponding nozzles for the new gas type and supplied provided (see table below). • After finishing this sequence, replace the old setting label with the new one provided for the new injectors. 8

Important warnings Cookware

• The gas burners are fitted a candle as flame failure device. If the burner flame is extinguished accidentally or unintentionally, e.g. when some liquid boils over or when there is draught in the room, gas supply is automatically cut off, thus preventing the gas from being emitted into the room.

• Gas burner cover should always be placed on the burner crown very carefully. Make sure the slots on the burner crown are never obstructed.

Nozzle • Correctly selected cookware will enable optimum cooking time and gas consumption. Pan diameter is the most important parameter. • Use pans which are the right size for each burner. Do not use small pans on large burners. The flame should not touch the sides of the pan. • For combustion, the gas also needs air. If a pan is too large, air supply to the burner is insufficient; as a result, combustion effect is lesser. • Always place the pan right over the burner, not to one side. Otherwise it could tip over. Do not place large pans on the burners near the control knobs. These may be damaged by the very high temperatures. • Never use two burners or heat sources to heat one single pan. Do not use grill pans, earthenware casserole dishes, etc. for a long period of time on maximum power especially on cristall glass gas hobs. • Pans should be placed on the hob carefully. Do not strike the hob and do not place excessive weight on it. • Place the pans on the pan supports, never directly on the burner. Make sure that the pan supports and burner caps are correctly positioned before using the appliance. • Stainless steel working table can burnish when subjected to excessive heat. Therefore we don’t recommend prolonged cooking with soapstone, earthenware pans or cast iron plates. Avoid the use of aluminum foil to protect the working table during cooking operation. • Do not use cast iron plates or griddles for cooking or heating food on the burners (check the sizes of pot allowed for each kind of burner) specially on cristall glass gas hobs • Cooktop should not be used as a worktop. Sharp objects can cause scratches. • Preparing food in thin aluminum of plastic containers on hot cooking zones is not allowed. Do not place any plastic objects or aluminum foil on the cooktop. • If sugar is spilt on a hot cooktop, or a sugar-laden food, immediately wipe the hob.  To get the best from the burners, use flat-bottomed pots with a diameter suited to the burner being used.   For smaller diameter pots and pans (coffee and tea pots, etc.), the power of the burner being used has to be regulated in order to ensure that the flame laps the bottom of the pot without spilling over. Do not use pots with concave or convex bottoms.

User’s instructions

This appliance must be used for the purpose it was designed for, i.e. domestic cooking. Any other use is considered to be improper and therefore dangerous. The manufacturer will accept no liability for any damage caused by improper, incorrect or irrational use.

Using the burners

• If the burners are not used for several days, wait a few seconds before lighting them in order to release any air from the pipes. • As the cook top burners are fitted with an automatic ignition, to light them simply press and turn the handle to the small star. The appliance uses a spark ignition generator. • If the flame does not ignite within five seconds, turn the knob back to the 0 position and repeat the procedure; if the electric ignition should not work due to a power failure or damp spark plugs, the gas can also be ignited using a match or a gas lighter. • For models with a safety tap (which interrupt the gas flow should the flame accidentally go out) the burners are ignited as described above, but ensure

the knob is pressed in for 5 to 6 seconds after the flame has ignited.

interval and may be extinguished. the ‘Gas valve closed’ position. After this time, which gives the safety device enough time to cut-in, the flame will be on permanently. • The flame can then be set between the maximum and minimum level. Any setting between 0 and the large flame is not recommended, as the flame is not stable in this • To extinguish the flame and close the burner gas supply, rotate the control knob to


once the cook top has been cleaned, ensure that the burners are firmly in their seats and do not interfere with the igniter.


if the burner flame is extinguished accidentally, turn off the knob and leave it for at least one minute before trying to re-ignite it.


The gas cooking appliance use may cause heat, humidity and products of combustion in the room where is installed. Ensure that the kitchen is well ventilated especially when the appliance is in use: keep open any natural ventilation holes or install a mechanical ventilation device (mechanical extractor hood). Prolonged intensive use of the appliance may call for additional ventilation, for example opening of a window, or more effective ventilation, for example increasing the level of mechanical ventilation where present.


Accessible parts may be hot when the hob is in use. Young children should be kept away.


This appliance is for cooking purposes only. It must not be used for other purposes, for example room heating. 11


Burners Stainless steel surfaces Printed surfaces Pan support and control knob

Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this appliance. The steam could reach the electrical components and cause a short circuit.

 The appliance should be cleaned regularly, preferably after each use, after cooling down.   To avoid water marks and limescale deposits, use a soft cloth to dry surfaces that have been cleaned with water. Food that has boiled over can cause discolouration of the burner parts and the stainless steel cooktop.

Remove any soiling immediately. To avoid damaging the outer surfaces of your appliance, do not use:

 cleaning agents containing soda, alkalines, ammonia, acids or chlorides  cleaning agents containing descaling agents        stain or rust removers abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. powder cleaners and cream cleaners solvent-based cleaning agents dishwasher cleaner grill and oven cleaners glass cleaning agents hard, abrasive brushes or sponges, e.g. pot scourers, brushes or sponges which have been previously used with abrasive cleaning agents  sharp pointed objects (these can damage the seal between the frame and the worktop). Clean stainless steel surfaces using a microfibre cloth or with a solution of warm water and a little washing-up liquid applied with a soft sponge. In the case of stubborn dried on soiling, soak first. Finally, dry with a soft cloth. The stainless steel cooktop cleaner can be used to clean the frame when required. Apply with an even pressure following the direction of the "grain". The care product for stainless steel can be used after cleaning to help keep your appliance looking good and to hinder resoiling. Apply sparingly with a soft cloth following the instructions on the packaging. The printing can be damaged if soiling (e.g. food or fluids that contained salt, olive oil) is not removed immediately. Remove any soiling immediately. Do not use any stainless steel cleaner on printed surfaces. This would rub off the print.

Do not clean the pan support in a dishwasher.

Remove the pan support. Clean the pan support and the control knob with a solution of warm water and a little washing-up liquid applied with a soft sponge. Stubborn soiling should be soaked first. After cleaning, dry all surfaces with a clean cloth.

Do not clean any parts of the burner in a dishwasher.

The burner should be dismantled and then cleaned by hand using a solution of warm water and a little washing-up liquid applied with a soft sponge. Parts of the burner that cannot be removed should be wiped clean with a damp cloth only. The ignition candle and the candle flame failure device should be very carefully wiped clean using a well wrung out cloth.

Do not let the ignitor get wet. If it gets wet, it will not spark. After cleaning, dry all surfaces with a clean cloth. Make sure that the flame slits are clean and completely dry. The surface of the burner crown cover will become more matt with time. This is quite normal and will not affect the operation of the cooktop.

Annual service by an authorised person is recommended, or if any of the following conditions are noticed; incomplete ignition, appreciable yellow tipping, carbon deposition, lifting, floating, lighting back or objectionable odour.
