Turn the corresponding knob anticlockwise up to the maximum position (large flame, fig. 1) and press the knob. Once the burner has been started up, keep the knob pressed for about 6 seconds.

Using the burners

In order to obtain the maximum yield without wasting gas, it is important that the diameter of the pot is suitable for the burner potential (see the following table). This is to avoid the flame extremities being larger than the base of the pot.

All of the operating positions must be chosen between the maximum and the minimum ones, never between the minimum position and the closing point.

The gas supply can be interrupted by turning the knob clockwise up to the closing position.

NOTE: If there is no power supply, it is possible to light the burners with matches, setting the knob to thestart-uppoint (large flame, fig. 1).
