Before using your cooktop

Before using your new cooktop, please:

  • Read this user guide, taking special note of the ‘Safety and warnings’ section.
  • Make sure all burner control dials are turned off.
  • Turn the power to the cooker on at the wall.

 

Using the gas burners

  1. Choose the control dial for the burner you want to use.

  2. Semi-rapid and triple-ring burners: press the dial in gently and turn it anticlockwise to the Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.35.08 AM.png position. The ignitors on all the burners will spark.
    Dual burner: press the dial in gently and turn it anticlockwise to the Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.35.41 AM.png position (to ignite the inner and outer crowns) or press the dial it gently and turn it clockwise to the Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.35.30 AM.png position (to ignite the inner crown only). The ignitors on all the burners will spark.

    Hold in the dial for approximately 10 seconds after the burner has lit. Releasing the dial too soon will extinguish the flame.

  3. Adjust the flame anywhere betweenScreen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.35.14 AM.png  and Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.35.08 AM.png or Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.35.30 AM.png and Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.35.35 AM.png or Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.35.41 AM.png and Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.35.50 AM.png positions. Do not adjust the flame between Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.35.08 AM.png or Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.35.30 AM.png or Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.35.41 AM.png and Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.34.54 AM.png (OFF).

If the burner does not light within 15 seconds, turn the control dial off and wait at least one minute before trying again.

  1. To turn the burner off, turn the dial clockwise (semi-rapid and triple-ring burners or dual burner when using both crowns) or anticlockwise (dual burner when using the inner crown only) to Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.34.54 AM.png (OFF) until you hear the safety click.

  2. After use, always turn the dials to the Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 11.34.54 AM.png (OFF) position.

Flame failure safety feature

The flame failure probe cuts off the gas supply to the burner if the flame is blown out.
When lighting the burner, hold down the dial for approximately 10 seconds after the burner has lit. Releasing the dial too soon will extinguish the flame.
If the flames are accidentally extinguished, turn off the burner and do not try to light it again for at least one minute (to allow the gas to disperse).

If a burner does not light

Check that:

  • The cooker is plugged in and the electricity is switched on.
  • The gas is turned on.
  • The gas bottle is not empty (if you are using bottled gas).
  • You have held down the dial for at least 10 seconds.
  • The ignitors are sparking. If the ignitors are not sparking, they may be dirty or wet. Clean them with a toothbrush and methylated spirits, as shown in Fig.26.

If the flame is irregular

If the flame is yellow or irregular, check that the burner parts, including the burner cap, are:

Matching cookware to burner

Use flat-bottomed pans, and make sure they match the size of the burner, as shown in the following table. A small pot on a large burner is not efficient.

Wok stand 

The wok stand fits over the dual the triple ring burner pan support.

Important-Icon.png
  • Using a wok without the stand may cause the wok to tip or the wok, triple ring or dual burner to operate incorrectly.
  • Do not use the stand for ordinary, flat-bottomed saucepans.
  • The wok stand MUST BE PLACED ONLY over the pan support for the triple ring or dual burner. The cooktop becomes very hot during operation. Keep children well out of reach.
