Lighting the appliance
The ignition system works by means of an electric spark system. Details
about the plug are given in 'General Infornmation'.
For your safety
In the event of the burner flames being accidentally extinguished, turn
off the burner control and do not attempt to re-ignite the burner for at
least 1 min.
Hotplate
To light
1 Lift up the lid. You cannot use the hotplate when the lid is down.
2 Push in the control knob and turn it to the large flame symbol
(highest setting), and press the ignition button immediately. When
the burner has lit release the button.
FRONT LEFT
Warning: If the ignition button is not pressed immediately a build up of
gas may cause the flame to spread.
For your safety
If you close the lid of the appliance while any of the hotplate
burners are lit the gas will go out. This is because it would be
dangerous if the burners stayed on when the lid was closed.
Always use the control knob to turn off a burner. Do not use
the lid as a cut-off device. This will only cut off the gas when
the lid is closed. The gas will flow again when the lid is
opened.
Please note: If you have any trouble lighting a hotplate burner turn all
the hotplate control knobs off. Make sure that the burner parts have
been replaced correctly.

until the flame has gone out.
Oven light
The main oven light will come on when the oven burner is alight. If you
need to replace the oven light bulb, follow the instructions given in
'General Information'.
6
The grill
The grill is a high-speed grill. The instructions below tell you how to vary
the heat setting and how to change the height of the grid to suit the food
you are cooking. You should remember to turn the food regularly.
You should not use the grill to keep food warm as it will continue to
cook the food.
Prior to using the grill
We suggest that you operate the grill for approximately 5 - 10 mins to
burn off any residue from the surface. During this period a slight odour
may be emitted, it is therefore advisable to open a window for
ventilation.
When you first operate the grill you may hear some sounds as the
burner heats up, this is quite normal and is not a fault on the appliance.
/
For your safety
The grill pan and handle must be in place before igniting the grill.
You must keep the grill door open when the grill burner is lit.
Accessible parts may be hot when the grill is used. Young
children should be kept away.
Never cover the grill pan or grid with foil as this can lead to grill
fires.
Heat control
The grill control has two heat settings.
The control knob turns to the right
from 'OFF' to 'LOW' and then to 'HIGH'.
Use the high setting for fast cooking
such as toast. Use the low setting to
cook thicker food such as chicken after
you have browned it on the high setting.

Cooking positions
There is only one position for the grill
shelf (Position 2). Positions are counted
from the top downwards.
Most food should be cooked on the grid
in the grill pan. You can turn the grid over to
suit different thicknesses of food.
You can place some dishes straight on to
the grill shelf. This is useful when you are
browning the top of food such as cauliflower
cheese.
General
The shelf in the grill/second oven is different from the shelves in the
main oven. It is important that you do not swap them over. Only use the
shelf with the solid metal plate underneath it in the grill/second oven.
When you are not using the grill you should remove the handle and
store the pan on the shelf in the grill. Turn the grill burner off before you
store the pan. Remember that the pan will get hot when you are using
the main oven.
You can use the grill compartment to warm plates when you are
using the main oven.
Preheating
You don't usually need to preheat the grill. You may wish to preheat it for
a couple of minutes when you are cooking steak or browning food.
Putting food on the grid
Place food such as toast, tea-cakes and
muffins towards the centre of the grid.
Place food which needs a gentle heat,
such as tomatoes and mushrooms towards
the edge of the grid.
Arrange meat, meat products and fish to
suit their thickness and how you like them
cooked.
8
The grill pan and handle
The grill pan is supplied with a removable handle.
To attach the handle, place the wirework under the cut out in the pan so
that the metal plate hooks over the top of the grill pan.
Slide the handle to the left and over the central bump on the grill pan.
Ensure the handle is correctly located. It is not necessary to
remove the grill pan handle during grilling.
Place the grill pan on the shelf so that the pan is positioned centrally
beneath the grill.
To remove the handle, slide the handle to the right and lift the handle
away from the cut out on the grill pan.
Note
If you require an additional handle for your grill pan, this can be ordered
from your local Service Force Centre by quoting part number
311479800\6.

The hotplate
ZCG 7551 /7550
The hotplate
You can only use the hotplate when the lid is open. If you have any
trouble lighting a hotplate burner, turn all hotplate control knobs off and
make sure that the burner parts have been replaced correctly. Now light
the burner in the usual way.
Heat control
The hotplate control knobs turn
anticlockwise from 'OFF' to 'HIGH'
and then to 'LOW'. You can adjust
the heat by turning the control
between the highest and lowest
settings. These are shown as a
large and a small flame symbol.
FRONT LEFT
Burner sizes
The hotplate has three burner sizes
to suit different types of cooking:
Largest burner (Rapid) - use a large
pan for food such as chips.
Medium burners (Normal) - use for
everyday cooking.
Small burner (Simmer) - use for
simmering food such as soups and
stews.
The largest pan which you should use on any burner is 230mm (9").
The base of the smallest pan should not measure less than 100mm (4").
Lift pans on and off the pan supports. Do not slide them across
the hob.
10
For your safety
1
Take care to avoid burns and scalds when you are
reaching across the hotplate.
2
Use pans with flat bases. They are more stable than
pans which are warped.
3
Do not use pans with very heavy handles which cause
the pan to tip.
4
Put pans on the centre of the burners.
5
Position pan handles so they cannot be accidentally
knocked.
6
Take extra care when you are deep fat frying. Do not
cover the pan with a lid.
Front Left
Do not leave a pan unattended. If the pan catches fire,
leave it where it is and turn off all controls.
Place a damp cloth or a fitting lid over the pan to
smother the flames.
Never put water on the fire.
Leave the pan to cool for 30 minutes.
7
If you are using a Wok we recommend it has a flat base
as it will stand stable on the pan supports. If you use a
round based Wok with a collar support, the collar must
be of the open wire work type. A closed collar will affect
the performance of the burner. Before you use the Wok
make sure that the collar is stable on the pan supports.
Always follow the instructions that come with the Wok.
8
Do not use the lid as a work surface or chopping board.
this could damage the glass and reduce its strength.

Helpful hints
1
Keep flames under the base of the pans. If the
flames lick round the sides of the pans you are
wasting gas.
2
Only heat the amount of liquid you need. Do
not overfill pans.
3
Cover pans with a lid whenever possible. The
food will heat up more quickly and there will be
less steam in the kitchen.
4
Try cooking more than one vegetable in the
same pan, for example potatoes and carrots.
5
Cut vegetables into smaller pieces. This way
they will cook more quickly.
6
A pressure cooker will save time and energy.
12
The ovens
Before you use the ovens you should wipe them out with a damp cloth.
This will remove any dust.
Heat zones
Main oven - There are zones of heat within
the oven. The temperature in the middle is
the gas mark you have chosen. The top of
the oven is slightly hotter and the lower shelf
slightly cooler. The base of the oven is quite
a lot cooler. You can make use of these heat
zones when you are cooking foods that need
different temperatures all at the same time.
If you are cooking more than one tray of similar items, for example
cakes or biscuits, swap the trays around during cooking. Or you can
remove the top tray when the food is cooked and move the lower tray to
the higher shelf to finish cooking.
Second oven - You should turn food round during the cooking time.
Preheating
You do not need to preheat the main or second oven for casseroling
and so on.
Preheat the ovens for baking or when you are cooking sensitive food
such as Yorkshire puddings, soufflés and yeast mixtures.
When you are cooking or reheating frozen or chilled food read the
instructions on the packaging. When you are using the second oven to
reheat food you should preheat the oven to gas mark 8.
When you need to preheat the oven, we recommend you do so for
20 minutes.
Oven shelves
You can slot the oven shelves into any of five
positions in the main oven and any of the two
positions in the second oven. Positions are
counted from the top downwards.
The shelf in the grill/second oven is
different from the shelves in the main oven.
Only use the shelf with the solid metal plate
underneath it in the grill/second oven. The
plate may glow red when you are using the
oven. This will not affect the cooking
performance.

Most second oven cooking should be carried
out using the shelf provided in shelf position
2. However, when cooking a small joint or a
deep cake you can use the shelf on the base
of the second oven to allow enough air to
Shelf on base
circulate around the food.
For safety the shelf will only pull out so far. If you want to remove a
shelf completely, pull it forward as far as it will go, raise the front edge
and lift it out. To put the shelf into a different position, keep the front
edge raised, slot the shelf on to the runner, lower the front edge and
slide the shelf in.
Baking trays and dishes
For your safety
Never place cooking dishes, trays and
so on over the oven burners. This will
damage the appliance as well as the
cookware and possibly the floor
covering underneath the appliance.

For the best results from the main oven we recommend that you use a
baking tray which is 310mm (12") square. If you use a tray or tin which is
larger than this, you may need to turn it around during cooking.
The size of tray which you should use in the second oven should not
measure any bigger than 310mm x 230mm (12" x 9" ). Place the longest
side parallel with the door.
Place single dishes on the centre of the shelf. You may need to turn
large items around during cooking. Turn all food round in the second
oven.
14
Roasting
For best results we recommend open roasting using minimal fat or oil to
prevent splashing.
It is not necessary to cover meat or poultry or wrap food in foil when
roasting as this restricts the circulation of heat and will lead to extended
cooktimes.
If you use a roasting bag or cover chicken breast with foil, be prepared
to allow an extra 10 - 15 minutes for each 1/2kg (1lb).
When cooking large items such as turkeys, the use of foil may be
required to prevent the breast becoming dry before the rest of the bird is
fully cooked.
Condensation
Condensation may form on the appliance. This is quite normal and
nothing to worry about. The condensation forms when heat and
moisture are present, for example during cooking. Whenever possible
try to make sure that food which contains a lot of moisture, for example
casseroles, are covered. If you do notice any condensation, wipe it up
straight away.

These instructions are for cooking in the oven after it has been pre-heated for 20 minutes.
If you are cooking more than one tray of similar items, for example cakes or biscuits, swap the trays around during cooking. Or you
can take the top tray out of the oven when the food is cooked and move the lower tray to the higher shelf to finish cooking.
Always leave at least one shelf position between shelves to allow heat to circulate.
The recommended shelf positions give the best results.
Put the dishes in the centre of the shelf.
You can change the gas marks and cooking times to suit your own tastes.
It is important to check that food is piping hot before serving.

mark 9 then to the gas mark
you want.
The time shown on the chart gives an example of setting the automatic
controls when the time is 9.00 am, the food is to be cooked for 2½ hours
and the food is needed at 6.00 pm (1800 hours).
The clock will work out what time the oven will switch itself on and it
will turn the oven off at the end. Once the automatic sequence is finished
there will be an alarm to remind you that you need to set the oven for
manual operation. To do this turn the selector knob to 'Manual'. Turn off
the oven control.
If you change your mind and want to cancel a programme that you
have set simply turn to 'Clock' and then to 'Manual'.

Hints and tips for automatic cooking
1 Check the instructions for setting the automatic controls until you are
familiar with the timer operation.
2 If the oven has been used, allow it to cool completely before using
for automatic cooking.
3 You should leave food in the oven for as short a time as possible
before automatic cooking starts.
4 Do not leave food to stand in the oven when it has finished cooking.
You should remove it and if it is not going to be eaten at once, cool it
quickly.
5 If you cannot remove food from the oven as soon as it is cooked
make sure that the food is covered.
6 Choose perishable foods carefully, especially during warm weather.
7 Food should be fresh and preferably straight from the refrigerator.
8 Joints of meat and poultry must be completely thawed.
9 Dishes containing left over cooked meat or poultry should not be
cooked automatically if there is a delay period.
10 Choose dishes which require approximately the same cooking time.
Slight variations may be allowed by:i) placing foods in larger or smaller containers
ii) using more or less liquid
iii) cutting fruit or vegetables into larger or smaller pieces.
This will give longer or shorter cooking times respectively. Further
temperature adjustments can be made by placing the foods higher
or lower in the oven as the top of the oven is hotter than the bottom.
11 Arrange shelf positions to suit dishes and choose dishes which will fit
into the oven together.
12 As food may be standing for some time in the oven, cover dishes
with foil or a lid where possible, and in the case of roast potatoes and
joints of meat, brush with a little fat or oil. Lemon juice may be added
to fruit to prevent browning.
13 Cream should be added just before serving.
14 If alcohol is used fermentation can occur.
15 Green leaf vegetables which take only a short time to cook, should
not be placed into the oven with the automatic meal. It is far better to
cook them in a pan on the hotplate whilst dishing up the rest of the
meal.

Slow cooking
Please note: There is no slow cook on the second oven.
The slow cook setting gives a very low heat in the oven. It is
particularly useful when cooking soups, stews and casseroles because
the long slow cooking will make cheaper, tougher cuts of meat more
tender.
You need to cook food at gas mark 6 for 30 minutes before you turn
the oven down to a slow cook setting. This makes sure that the
temperature of the food gets hot enough to start the food cooking.
MAIN OVEN
MAIN OVEN
Some foods such as pastry and biscuits are not suitable for slow
cooking because the temperature is too low.
Cover all food during cooking to prevent it from drying out. You can
uncover food for the last half hour if it is normally served golden brown.

Joints of pork must only be cooked if you can ensure, by using a
meat thermometer, that an internal temperature of at least 88oC has
been reached .
For good air circulation always stand joints on a rack in a roasting tin
or casserole.
Thaw all frozen meat and poultry before cooking.
Prime cuts of meat do not benefit from slow cooking.

General points for slow cooking
Frozen foods
Thaw thoroughly before cooking.
Thickening
Toss meat in flour for casseroles. Alternatively blend cornflour with
water and add it at the end of cooking.
Flavouring
Flavours are retained because there is little evaporation. Adjust at the
end of the cooking time.
Liquid
Reduce normal liquid quantities slightly as there is little evaporation
during cooking.
Milk and milk products, for example cream
Add towards the end of the cooking to prevent curdling.
Reheating
Left over food should be cooled quickly and refrigerated.
Do Not reheat food using the slow cook setting. Reheat food
conventionally or in a microwave. Food must only be reheated once.

Care and cleaning
For your safety
For hygiene and safety reasons you must keep this gas
appliance clean. A build up of fat or other foodstuff could cause a
fire.
Try to mop up spills and splashes as soon as they happen. But
be careful as parts of the appliance will be hot.
Do not use any polishes, caustic cleaners, abrasives, washing soda or
soap except those recommended.
Please note: If we recommend you use hot
soapy water we mean hot water with
washing up liquid in it and not any other
cleaning product.
If you own a dishwasher please read the
operating instructions for the machine before
you wash any part of your appliance in it.
Clean your appliance regularly using a cloth that has been wrung out in
hot soapy water. Rinse and polish it dry using a soft cloth. Stainless
Steel cream cleaners are abrasive and should be avoided as they
may damage the surface finish.
When you remove parts of your appliance for cleaning do not
plunge them into water whilst they are very hot as this may damage the
finish of the parts.
Cleaning the handles and control knobs
Do not remove the control knobs from the appliance as damage
may occur. It is strongly recommended that only hot soapy water and a
soft cloth is used for cleaning the door handles and control knobs. ANY
OTHER CLEANING MATERIALS MAY DULL THE FINISH. Care should
be taken when cleaning, to ensure that all cleaning products are wiped
from the control knobs immediately.
28
The hotplate
Clean the hotplate top using a mild abrasive such as 'Cif'. Take care not
to damage the spark electrodes. If the spark electrodes are damaged
the burners will not light.
You can remove the pan supports, burner caps and burner crowns
to clean them. Again take care not to damage the spark electrodes.
If any food spills during cooking you can place the pan on another
burner to finish cooking. Then you can remove the dirty parts and clean
them before the spill 'burns on'.
You can wash the removable parts in very hot soapy water. You may
use mild abrasives. Make sure that the electrode and the hole and slots
in the crown are not blocked with food or cleaning materials.
Clean the burner crowns by soaking them in very hot soapy water.
You can remove any stubborn stains by scouring with a soap filled pad
such as 'Brillo'. If you look after the burner crowns in this way they will
stay reasonably clean. However the surface will dull with time.
Aluminium based saucepans can leave shiny metal marks on the pan
supports. Clean the pan supports regularly to remove the marks using a
mild abrasive like 'Cif' with a soft scourer. For more stubborn marks you
can use a soap-filled pad such as 'Brillo'.
After cleaning the appliance parts, dry
them thoroughly before you put them back.
When replacing hotplate burner parts
1. Crown to body (Do not try to force the
crown on to the body).
Make sure that the hole in the crown is
over the electrode. Check that the two
longer location pegs sit in the slots in the
body. When the crown is in this position
let it fall freely on to the body. Check that
the crown can be moved slightly from
side to side.
2. Cap to crown
Place cap centrally on the top of the
crown (enamel side up). Move sideways
and front to back to check the cap is
properly fitted.
3. Check for ignition
If a burner will not light then you need to
check the crown and cap positions.

The grill
Do not clean the grill burner itself.
The burner is designed to be self cleaning. Cleaning the grill may cause
the holes in the burner to become blocked preventing it from operating
correctly.
Please note that due to the nature of stainless steel the grill burner may
tarnish through use over a period of time. This is quite normal and is not
a fault on the appliance.
Clean the area around the grill frequently using hot soapy water.
After use you can soak the pan for a few minutes and then clean it using
mild abrasives or a soap filled pad such as 'Brillo'.
Clean the grill shelf using hot soapy water. Mild abrasives can be used
if necessary.
The grill and oven furniture
Clean the grill and oven furniture frequently using hot soapy water.
After use you can soak the grill pan for a few minutes and then clean
it using mild abrasives or a soap filled pad such as 'Brillo'. Clean the
shelf, grill pan grid and handle using hot soapy water. Mild abrasives
can be used if necessary. The heat in the oven will change the colour of
the solid plate on the grill shelf. You must not remove the solid plate from
the shelf. You can soak the shelf in hot soapy water to make cleaning
easier.
30
The ovens
The sides and back of your ovens are coated in a special material which
helps to keep itself clean.
Follow these simple rules to maintain the appearance of the special
finish.
Do not overfill dishes or they will
boil over.
Do not put dishes too high in the
oven. If you do they may stick to the
oven roof.
Cover your roasting tins with foil.
This will prevent fat splashing.
Use a roasting tin which is just large
enough for the meat and potatoes.
This will help to reduce fat
splashing.
Dry any vegetables that you are
going to roast. If they are wet there
will be more fat splashing.
Follow the oven cleaning cycle
regularly.

Cleaning between the outer and inner
door glass
You can remove the glass from the oven and grill doors if you need to.
To remove the outer glass
Note: For second oven door it is important not to open the door when
the glass is removed because the door is lighter and it will spring shut.
1 Open the oven door so you can get at the two cross head screws on
the top of the oven door.
Note: Open second oven door slightly to access screws.
2 Loosen these screws using a pozidrive screwdriver.
3 You should hold the door glass securely in place with one hand,
whilst removing the screws completely, with the other hand. If you do
not do this, the door glass could fall forward.
4 Using both hands, gently tilt the top of the door glass towards you.
Lift slightly to disengage the locators at the bottom of the door.
Please note that the door
glass on your product may
differ in type and shape from
that shown in the diagram.
5 Clean the outer and inner glass using hot soapy water and mild
abrasives such as 'Cif'. DO NOT try to clean the foil which is inside
the door. The foil is there to keep the door cool, if it is damaged it will
not work.
6 Replace the glass by holding it in both hands and gently placing the
locators into the holes of the brackets at the bottom of the door.
Push the top of the glass towards the oven door, and make sure the
screw location holes line up.
7 Hold the glass in place with one hand and replace the cross head
screws into the location holes, with the other hand.
8 Tighten the screws using a pozidrive screwdriver.
Close the door.
34
Cleaning The Door Glass
To prevent damaging or weakening the door glass panels
avoid the use of the following:
Household detergents and bleaches
Impregnated pads unsuitable for non-stick saucepans
Brillo/Ajax pads or steel wool pads
Chemical oven pads or aerosols
Rust removers
Bath/Sink stain removers
If the door glass panel becomes chipped or has deep
scratches the glass will be weakened and must be replaced
to prevent the possibility of the panel shattering. Please
contact your local Service Force Centre who will be
pleased to advise further.

IMPORTANT - SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
This appliance must be installed in accordance with the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations
Current Editions. For appliances installed in the Republic of Ireland please refer to NSAI - Domestic Gas
Installation IS813 Current Editions. Detailed recommendations are contained in the following British
Standard Codes of Practice - BS. 6172, BS.5440: Part 2 and B.S.6891. All British Standards must be
'Current Editions'.
PROVISION FOR VENTILATION
The room containing the appliance should have an air supply in accordance with BS.5440: Part 2 Current
Edition. All rooms require an openable window or equivalent and some rooms will require a permanent vent
as well. For room volumes up to 5m³ an air vent of 100 cm² is required; for room volumes between 5m³
and 10m³ an air vent of 50cm² is required. If the room has a door that opens directly to the outside, no air
vent is required. For room volumes that exceed 11m³ no air vent is required. If there are other fuel burning
appliances in the same room, BS.5440: Part 2 Current Edition should be consulted to determine the
requisite air vent requirements. The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat and
moisture in the room in which it is installed. Ensure that the kitchen is well ventilated: keep natural
ventilation holes open 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.
