-SWITCHING ON BURNERS EQUIPPED WITH
FLAME FAILURE DEVICE (FIG. 1)
The knobs of burners equipped with flame failure device must be turned in an anticlockwise direction until they reach the “Full on” position (large flame fig. 1) and come to a stop. Now depress the knob in question and repeat the previously indicated operations. Keep the knob depressed for about 10 seconds once the burner has ignited.
WHEN THE CONTROL OF THE DOUBLE RING BURNER IS SET TO MINIMUM THE OUTER FLAME ONLY REMAINS ALIGHT.
HOW TO USE THE BURNER HOTPLATES
In order to maximize the efficiency of the burners the following pan sizes are recommended:
22 - 24
20 - 22
20 - 22
16 - 18
10 - 14
12 - 20
30 - 40
-When boiling point is reached, it is beneficial to turn the control knob to the “LOW” setting.
-When possible, use pans with correctly fitting lids.
-Always use pans of the correct diameter (Fig. 2).
WARNING - SAFETY:
-BURNERS WITH FLAME FAILURE DEVICE MAY ONLY BE IGNITED WHEN THE RELATIVE KNOB HAS BEEN SET TO THE FULL ON POSITION (LARGE FLAME FIG.1).
-NEVER ALLOW CHILDREN TO PLAY NEAR THE APPLIANCE WHEN USING THE BURNERS. CHECK THAT THE PAN HANDLES ARE POSITIONED CORRECTLY.
-DO NOT SPRAY AEROSOLS IN THE VICINITY OF THE HOTPLATES WHILE THE APPLIANCE IS IN USE.
-FOR SAFETY ENSURE THAT NO FLAMMABLE OR THERMALLY DEFORMABLE OBJECTS ARE PLACED DIRECTLY BELOW THE HOB.
-WHERE THIS APPLIANCE IS INSTALLED IN A MARINE CRAFT OR A CARAVAN, IT SHALL NOT BE USED AS A SPACE HEATER.
-FOR MAXIMUM STABILITY ALWAYS USE A ROUND BOTTOM WOK.
-IF GAS BURNS WITH A YELLOW FLAME, DO NOT CONTINUE TO USE BURNER AND ARRANGE FOR SERVICE.
-OBSERVE SAFE CLEARANCES AROUND APPLIANCE.
-LOCATE PAN CENTRALLY OVER THE BURNER SO THAT IS STABLE AND DOES NOT OVERHANG THE APPLIANCE (FIG. 3).
-USE ONLY A WOK SUPPORT SUPPLIED OR RECOMMENDED BY THE MANUFACTURER OF THE APPLIANCE (FIG. 4).
-THE APPLIANCE IS NOT INTENDED FOR USE BY YOUNG CHILDREN OR INFIRM PERSONS WITHOUT SUPERVISION.
-YOUNG CHILDREN SHOULD BE SUPERVISED TO ENSURE THAT THEY DO NOT PLAY WITH THE APPLIANCE.
-DO NOT STORE OR USE GASOLINE OR OTHER FLAMMABLE VAPOURS, LIQUIDS OR ITEMS IN THE VICINITY OF THIS OR ANY OTHER APPLIANCE.
In the event of bad working of the hob, (there are no mentions on the instruction book) the user must apply to the servicing “AEG” imparting both the “ENR” and “FNR” numbers stamped on the data label put on the bottom of the hob.
The above numbers give the technician the possibility to find the proper spare parts with a consequent timely assistance. For an easy finding, we suggest to write the above “ENR” and “FNR” numbers on the beneath blanks.
Do not wash any part while it is still hot.
Periodically, the enamelled trivets, burners and burner caps should be washed with warm soapy water (fig. 5).
Ensure they are completely dry and that all holes in the burners are clear of obstructions prior to reassembly.
SHOULD THE BURNER CONTROL KNOBS BECOME DIFFICULT TO OPERATE, THEN SEEK APPLIANCE SERVICE.
4) PARTS IN STAINLESS STEEL
Parts in stainless steel must be cleaned with warm soapy water and dried with a clean soft cloth. Frequent use of cleaning agents designed for stainless steel is recommended.
3) ENAMELLED PARTS
To maintain the characteristic brightness of the enamelled parts, it is necessary that they be cleaned frequently with warm soapy water. Do not clean them while they are hot and never use abrasive powders or cleaners.
Stains may be removed by wiping with a clean cloth and soapy water before stains become cold. Stubborn stains may be removed by soaking in hot soapy water.
Do not allow vinegar, coffee, milk, salty water, lemon or tomato juice to remain in contact with enamelled surfaces.
