When the plate is switched on for the first time, or if it has remained unused for a long period, it should be dried for 30 minutes on switch position n° 1. This will eliminate any moisture that may have been absorbed by the insulating material.
To correctly use the appliance, remember:
-To place a pan on the plate before switching this on.
-To always use pans with flat and very thick bottoms (see fig. 7).
-To never use pans that are smaller than the plate diameters.
-To dry the bottom of the pan before placing it on the plate.
-Never leave the appliance unattended when the plates are being used. Make sure that there are no children in the near vicinity.
Particularly make sure that the pan handles are correctly positioned and keep a check on foods requiring oil and grase to cook since these products can easily catch fire.
-The plates will remain hot for a long period of time even use after use, never touch them with the hands or other objects in order to prevent burns.
-Immediately disconnect the appliance from the electricity main as soon as cracks are noted on the surfaces of the plates.
Always disconnect the appliance from the gas and electricity mains before carrying out any cleaning operation.
3) HOT PLATE
Periodically wash the hot plate, the enamelled steel pan support, the enamelled burner caps “A”, “B” and “C” and the burner heads “T” (see fig. 8 and 8/A) with lukewarm soapy water. Following this, all parts should be thoroughly rinsed and dried. Never wash them while they are still warm and never use abrasive powders. Do not allow vinegar, coffee, milk, salted water, lemon or tomato juice from remaining in contact with the enamelled surfaces for long periods of time.
Comply with the following instructions, before remounting the parts:
-Check that burner head slots have not become clogged by foreign bodies.
-Check that enamelled burner cap “A”, “B” and “C” (fig. 8 and 8/A) have correctly positioned on the burner head. It must be steady.
-The exact position of the pan support is established by the rounded corners, which should be set towards the side edge of the hot plate.
-Do not force the taps if they are difficult open or close. Contact the technical assistance service for repairs.
-Correctly preserve the plate after use by treating it with special products, easily available on the market. This will keep the surface of the plate clean and bright. The operation will also prevent the formation of rust.
TECHNICAL INFORMATION FOR THE
Installation, adjustments of controls and maintenance must only be carried out by a qualified engineer.
Incorrect installation may cause damage to persons, animals or property for which the Manufacturer shall not be considered responsible.
During the life of the system, the automatic safety or regulating devices on the appliance may only be modified by the manufacturer or by his duly authorized dealer.
4) INSTALLING THE HOT PLATE
Check that the appliance is in a good condition after having removed the outer packaging and internal wrappings from around the various loose parts. In case of doubt, do not use the appliance and contact qualified personnel.
Never leave the packaging materials (cardboard, bags, polystyrene foam, nails, etc.) within children’s reach since they could become potential sources of danger.
The measurements of the opening made in the top of the modular cabinet and into which the hot plate will be installed are indicated in either fig. 9. Always comply with the measurements given for the hole into which the appliance will be recessed (see fig.10).
4A) CYLINDER HOLDER COMPARTMENT
The dimensions of the cylinder compartment have to permit the easy loading and unloading of the cylinder.
For an efficient aeration is necessary to make some small openings in the furniture, as per fig. 9/A and 9/B. The cylinder holder compartment must have the following characteristics:
-Resistance to a load.
-No fitment of the cylinder directly on the floor are allowed.
-The cylinder equipped with governor must be set or take off from the compartment in a easy way.
-The cylinder cock must be easily accessible.
-The flexible tube musn't be in contact with sharp edges.
-The cylinder holder compartment and the different parts of the unit, where the burners are fit, musn't be in touch inside.
-The aeration openings musn't be occluded when the unit is installed.
The appliance belongs to class 3 and is therefore subject to all the provisions established by the provisions governing such appliances.
COMPLY WITH THE DIMENSIONS
5) FIXING THE HOT PLATE
The hot plate has a special seal which prevents liquid from getting into the cabinet. Strictly comply with the following instructions in order to correctly apply this seal:
-Detach the seals from their backing, checking that the transparent protection still adheres to the seal itself.
-Overturn the hot plate and correctly position seal “E” (fig. 11) under the edge of the hot plate itself, so that the outer side of the seal perfectly matches the outer edge of the hot plate. The ends of the strips must fit together without overlapping.
-Evenly and securely fix the seal to the hot plate, pressing into place with the fingers and remove the strip of protective paper from the seal and set the plate into the hole made in the cabinet.
-The prospective walls (left or right) that exceed the working table in height must be at a minimum distance from the cutting as mentionned both in the columns and the scheme.
-Fix the hob with the proper brackets “S” and fit the prominent part into the porthole “H” on the bottom; turn the screw “F” until the bracket “S” stick on the top (fig. 12).
-In order to avoid accidental touch with the overheating bottom of the hob, during the working, is necessary to put a wooden insert, fixed by screws, at a minimum distance of 50mm from the top (see fig. 9)
Remark: Below is the suggested clearances. Actual installation will be veried subject to different kitchen situations.
The installer should note that the appliance that side walls should be no higher than the hot plate itself. Furthermore, the rear wall, the surfaces surrounding and adjacent to the appliance must be able to withstand an overtemperature of 65 K.
The adhesive used to stick the plastic laminate to the cabinet must be able to withstand a temperature of not less than 150° C otherwise the laminate could come unstuck.
The appliance must be installed in compliance with the provisions in force.
This appliance is not connected to a device able to dispose of the combustion fumes. It must therefore be connected in compliance with the above mentioned installation standards. Particular care should be paid to the following provisions governing ventilation and aeration.
6) ROOM VENTILATION
It is essential to ensure that the room in which the appliance is installed is permanently ventilated in order to allow the appliance itself to operate correctly. the necessary amount of air is that required for regular gas combustion and ventilation of the relative room, the volume of which must not be less than 20 m3. Air must naturally flow through permanent openings in the walls of the room in question. These openings must vent the fumes outdoors and their section must be at least 100 cm2 (see fig. 3). Construction of the openings must ensure that the openings themselves may never be blocked. Indirect ventilation by air drawn from an adjacent room is also permitted, in strict compliance with the provisions in force.
7) LOCATION AND AERATION
Gas cooking appliances must always dispose of their combustion fumes through hoods. These must be connected to flues, chimneys or straight outside. If it is not possible to install a hood, an electric fan can be installed on a window or on a wall facing outside (see fig. 4). This must be activated at the same time as the appliance (see fig. 5), so long as the specifications in the provisions in force are strictly complied with.
