- Begin by ensuring proper installation and grounding of the appliance by a qualified technician according to the accompanying Installation Instructions.
- Have the installer show you where the fuse or junction box is located so that you know how and where to turn off power. Also, have the installer show you the location of the gas supply.
- If you smell gas, do not use the Hob. Immediately turn off the gas supply at the shut off valve, disconnect electrical power to the unit at the fuse or junction box (if present) and contact the gas supplier or qualified appliance technician.
- Ensure that the Hob is used only by those individuals who are able to operate it properly.
- Use the Hob only for cooking tasks expected of a home appliance.
- Always check the positions of the control knobs to make sure the appliance is off when you are finished cooking.
- Before performing any service, turn off the gas supply by closing the gas shut-off valve and turning off the electrical power supply.
- Always clean the Hob cautiously. If using a damp sponge or cloth, wait until the Hob has cooled sufficiently to prevent steam burns. Also, some cleaners can produce harmful or unpleasant fumes if applied to hot surfaces.
- Using a gas cooking appliance results in the generation of heat and humidity in the location where it is installed. Please ensure that your kitchen has proper ventilation: keep natural ventilation orifices open or install a mechanical device (mechanical ventilation hood).
- Never use the Hob surface as a cutting board.
- Do not try to remove heavy spills with a sharp object such as a knife or metal spatula, as they can harm the finish.
- Check periodically the state of conversation of the flexible gas feed pipe. In case of leakage, call immediately a qualified technician.
- After installation, please make sure that the knobs are in OFF position. Put a battery of 1.5 V in the battery box under the hob.
- To light a particular burner, press down on the corresponding control knob, then immediately rotate the knob counterclockwise from the "OFF" position to the "HI/LITE" position. Once the burner is lit, reduce the flame height if desired by rotating the control knob further counterclockwise, then place the utensil on the grate.
Hob with auto choke safety device:
- Press the knob and rotate it by 90 degrees anti-clockwise. Press it for 5 to 10 seconds and wait for the flame. Before leaving the knob, Make sure that the flame is fine.
NOTE: The auto choke safety device is only for flameout by water, wind or any spillover. The device can't protect leakage due to any other reason. If the gas does not ignite within ten seconds, turn off the valve. Allow at least two minutes for any gas to dissipate, then repeat the lighting procedure.
Read and follow the Care and Cleaning instructions to ensure proper Hob operation and appearance throughout the lifetime of the product.
- More frequent cleaning is required if the Hob is used often for frying or other high temperature operations.
- Clean the Hob thoroughly prior to operating it the first time. For initial and everyday cleaning, use a soft cloth or sponge lightly dampened with a solution of warm water and hand dishwashing liquid to clean all components.
- Before cleaning the Hob, ensure that all burners are turned off and that all components are cool enough to safely touch.
- Clean electrical parts with a dry cloth.
- Always dry components completely before using the Hob.
- Do not use abrasive or caustic cleaners or detergents on this appliance, as these may cause permanent damage. Do not use aerosol cleaners, as these may be flammable or cause corrosion of metal parts.
||What To Do
||Products/Accessories to Use
|Spark Plugs and Injectors
||In the event that the spark plugs become soiled, clean them using a small, hard bristled brush (non-metallic).The gas injector is located in the centre of the burner in the shape of a dish. Be careful not to obstruct it during cleaning, as this will undermine the performance of your hob. In the event of obstruction, use a safety pin to unclog the injector.

- In the event that a burner flame goes out and gas escapes, open a window or door. Wait at least 5 minutes before attempting to use the Hob.
- Select utensils of the proper size, material and construction for the particular type of cooking being done. Select utensils that are large enough to contain food without boil overs or spillovers. Choose pans with easily grasped handles that will stay cool while cooking.
- Do not use the Hob for warming or heating the room.
- If the Hob is near a window, do not use long curtains as a window treatment. They can blow over the Hob and create a fire hazard.
- Do not cover the burners and grates with anything except properly selected utensils. Decorative covers should not be used.
- Do not store CLEANING products or FLAMMABLE products (aerosol cans or containers under pressure, as well as papers, cookbooks, etc.) in the cabinet underneath your cooking hob.
- If you use a drawer located under the hob, we recommend that you avoid storing in it items that are heat sensitive (plastic, papers, aerosol cans, etc.).
- When you connect the power cables of any electrical appliances plugged in close to the hob, ensure that they are not in contact with the cooking zones.
- These cooking hobs are meant to be used exclusively for cooking beverages and foodstuffs.
- Your hob should be disconnected from power and fuel supplies (electricity and gas) before any repairs.
- As part of our commitment to constantly improving our products, we reserve the right to make changes to them based on technological advances to their technical, functional and/or aesthetic properties.
