5 Installation Installation gas


This modern cooker was manufactured with parts and materials of the highest quality and was designed to meet your cooking needs. You should read this manual so that you are able to use the cooker correctly and to avoid any potential problems with using the cooker. The following information outlines the required rules for correct installation and service of your cooker. This is particularly important for the technician who will install the appliance.



For rooms with a volume of less than 5 m³ permanent ventilation of 100 cm² is required see figure 1 and 2 for an example.

For rooms with a volume of between 5 m³ and 10m³ a permanent ventilation of 50 cm² will be required unless the room has a door which opens directly to the outside, in which case no permanent ventilation is required.

For rooms with a volume greater than 10 m³ - no permanent ventilation is required.

Attention: Regardless of room size, all rooms containing the appliance must have direct access to the outside air via an openable window or equivalent. The room containing the cooker should have an air supply in accordance with BS 5440: Part 2.

Environment where your appliance will be installed

Your cooker must be set up and used in a place where it will always have ventilation While operating, this appliance needs 2m3/h air per kw input.

Argos Product Support 01759 487838

There must be enough natural ventilation to provide the gas to be used in the environment. The average air flow must directly come in through ventilation from the outside.

Emptying of the Burned Gases from Environment

For cooking appliances that operate with gas, burned gas wastes are exhausted directly to the outside or through cooker hoods that are connected to a chimney that opens directly to the outside. If it is not possible to install a cooker hood, it is required to set an electric fan on the window or wall that has access to fresh air. This electric fan must have the capacity to change the volume of air in the kitchen environment 4-5 times per hour.

Installation Installation gas

User Instructions Using the Hob When turning the hob off, turn the knob in the clockwise direction so that the knob shows “ position or the marker on the knob points upwards.

l ” Your hob has burners of different diameters. The most economic way of using gas is to choose the correct size gas burners for your cooking pan size and to bring the flame to the minimum position once the boiling point is reached. It is recommended to always cover your cooking pan.

Cookware Selection

In order to obtain maximum performance from the main burners, use pots with the following flat bottom diameters. Using smaller pots than the minimum dimensions stated below will cause energy loss.

Rapid Burner: 22-26cm Medium Burner: 14-22cm Auxiliary Burner: 12-18cm Make sure that the tips of the flames do not spread out of the outer circumference of the pan, as this may also harm the accessories around the pan (handles etc.) When the burners are not in use for prolonged periods, always turn the main gas control valve off.


Use only flat bottomed pans and with a sufficiently thick base.

Ensure that the base of the pan is dry before placing it on the burners.

The temperature of accessible parts may be high when the appliance is operating. So it is important to keep children and animals out of the reach of the burners during and after cooking (until the cooker has cooled down).

Argos Product Support 01759 487838

After use the hob remains very hot for a prolonged period of time, do not touch it and do not place any object on top of the hob.

Never place cutlery or lids on the hob as they will get hot and could cause serious burns.


1. Turn off the burner.

2. Cover the pan with a fire blanket or damp cloth. This will smother the flames and extinguish the fire.

3. Leave the pan to cool for at least an hour before attempting to move it. Injuries are often caused by picking up a hot pan and rushing outside with it.
