Any gas installation must be carried out by a registered CORGI installer, and in accordance with existing rules and regulations.

The relevant instructions are to be found in the second section of this manual.

Hob burners

ΦTo light a burner:

λ turn the relevant control knob anticlockwise to the maximum position, then push it down to ignite the burner. Upon, ignition, adjust the flame as required.

λ If the burner does not ignite, turn the control knob to zero, and try again.

When switching on the mains, after installation or a power cut, it is quite normal for the spark generator to be activated automatically.

To ensure maximum burner efficiency, you should only use pots and pans with a flat bottom fitting the size of the burner used (see table).







Large (rapid)

180 mm.

260 mm.

Medium (semi-rapid)

120 mm.

220 mm.

Small (Auxiliary)

80 mm.

160 mm.




As soon as a liquid starts boiling, turn down the flame so that it will barely keep the liquid simmering.

If you use a saucepan which is smaller than the recommended size, the flame will spread beyond the bottom of the vessel, causing the handle to overheat.

Take care when frying food in hot oil or fat, as the overheated splashes could easily ignite

If the control knobs become difficult to turn, please contact your local AEG Service Force Centre.

Maintenance and Cleaning

Before any maintenance or cleaning can be carried out, you must DISCONNECT the hob from the electricity supply.

The hob is best cleaned whilst it is still warm, as spillage can be removed more easily than if it is left to cool.

The Hob Top

Regularly wipe over the hob top using a soft cloth well wrung out in warm water to which a little washing up liquid has been added.Avoid the use of the following:

-household detergent and bleaches;

-impregnated pads unsuitable for non-sticksaucepans;

-steel wool pads;

-bath/sink stain removers.

Should the hob top become heavily soiled, it is recommended that a cleaning product such as Hob Brite or Bar Keepers Friend is used.

Pan Supports

The pan supports are dishwasher proof. If washing them by hand, take care when drying them as the enamelling process occasionally leaves rough edges. If necessary, remove stubborn stains using a paste cleaner.

The Burners

The burner caps and crowns can be removed for cleaning.

Wash the burner caps and crowns using hot soapy water, and remove marks with a mild paste cleaner. A well moistened soap impregnated steel wool pad can be used with caution, if the marks are particularly difficult to remove.

After cleaning, be sure to wipe dry with a soft cloth.
