Ventilation Requirements 

  • The appliance should be installed in a room or space with an air supply in accordance with BS 5440:2 2009.
  • For rooms with a volume of less than 5 m3, permanent ventilation through a free area of at least 100 cm2 will be required.
  • For rooms with a volume between 5 m3 and 10 m3, permanent ventilation through a free area of at least 50 cm2 will be required, unless the room has a door which opens directly to the outside air, in which case no permanent ventilation is required.
  • For rooms with a volume greater than 10 m3, no permanent ventilation is required
  • Regardless of room size, all rooms containing the appliance must have direct access to the outside air via an open window or equivalent.
  • Where there are other fuel-burning appliances in the same room, BS 5440-2: 2009 should be consulted to determine the correct amount of free area ventilation requirements.
  • The above requirements also allow for use of a gas oven and grill, but you need to consult a qualified engineer if there are other gas-burning appliances in the same room.

Before you Install the Appliance, Please Make Sure That

  • The local distribution conditions (nature of gas and pressure) and the adjustment of the appliance are compatible. For adjustment conditions for this appliance see ‘Gas rate summary’.
  • A suitable disconnection switch is incorporated in the permanent wiring, mounted and positioned to comply with the local wiring rules and regulations. A means of disconnection with at least a 3 mm air gap contact separation in all poles must be incorporated into the fixed wiring in accordance with the wiring rules, unless the local wiring rules allow for alternative means.
  • The appliance is connected to a 220V - 240V 50Hz (10 A) power supply only and earthed via the power supply cable.
  • There is a power outlet within reach of the power supply cable (900 mm from the centre rear of the product). This must be accessible after installation. The power supply cable should not touch any metal parts.
  • If the power supply cable is damaged, it is replaced only by the special cable: Part no. 534994 KIT SPARES TRMNL BLK-FLEX 11, obtainable from authorised Fisher & Paykel Service Agents
  • The supply connection point (gas shut- off valve) is accessible after installation.
  • The benchtop is made of a heat resistant material.
  • The installation complies with all the requirements of all current local codes and regulations.

When you Install the Appliance

  • As servicing requires removing of the cooktop from the countertop we do not recommend flush mounting. To the fullest extent permissible by law, the owner carries all risk for flush mounting of the cooktop. The owner must ensure the cooktop has been cut out from the benchtop before servicing can be carried out. Fisher & Paykel will not be liable for any costs associated with removing or replacing a flush- mounted and/or sealed-in product, nor for repairing any damage that may be incurred by doing this. Fisher & Paykel does not exclude any statutory liability it may have and which by law cannot be excluded, because of the giving of this notice.
  • If installed with an approved flexible hose, the hose should not come in contact with the bottom of the appliance or any sharp edges. Flexible hose assemblies should be BS 699.1 certified.
  • Seal exposed bare edges of the cutout with an oil-based paint or moisture- proof polyurethane to prevent possible moisture creeping between the cooktop trim and the benchtop.
  • If, after following the instructions given, correct performance cannot be achieved, please contact your nearest Fisher & Paykel Authorised Service Centre, Customer Care, or contact us through our website listed at the end of this document.
