Flame failure safety feature (some models only)

Some cooktop models have a flame failure safety device. These models have a flame failure probe as well as the ignitor (see Fig 15).

The flame failure probe cuts off the gas supply to the burner if the flame is blown out.

When lighting the burner on flame failure models, hold down the knob for approximately 10 seconds after the burner has lit. Releasing the knob 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 cooktop 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).

Flame failure models only: You have held down the knob 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. 15.

22 Care and cleaning

General advice

Maintenance Period

Description

Daily

Clean gas cooktop as per following

 

instructions.

 

 

Monthly

Remove all burner parts, and clean using a

 

non-abrasivedetergent. Rinse in cold water,

 

dry thoroughly, and replace.

 

Clean the ignitor carefully, using a toothbrush

 

and methylated spirits.

 

 

Every 3-4years

Contact your local authorised gas Service

 

Agent to perform a thorough check on all gas

 

components on the gas cooktop.

Before cleaning, you must ensure that the cooktop is switched off. Clean the cooktop regularly – do not let stains become burnt on. Allow the appliance to cool down before cleaning.

Avoid leaving acidic substances (lemon juice, vinegar etc.) on the surfaces.

The control knobs may be removed for cleaning but care should be taken not to damage the seal.

Do not clean cooktop parts in a self-cleaningoven.

Do not use a steam cleaner to clean any part of your cooktop. For stubborn stains, see the ‘Cleaning chart’.

Enamelled parts

Clean the enamelled parts with a sponge and soapy water only or other non-abrasiveproducts.

Dry preferably with a microfibre or soft cloth.

If acidic substances such as lemon juice, tomato sauce, vinegar etc. are left in contact with the enamel for a long time, they will damage the surface.

Stainless steel surfaces

Stainless steel parts should be rinsed with water and dried with a microfibre or soft cloth. Dry thoroughly to avoid leaving water marks. For extra shine on stainless steel, use a stainless steel polish.

Clean brushed stainless steel in the direction of the grain.

For persistent dirt, use specific non-abrasiveproducts available commercially or a little hot vinegar.

Note: regular use could cause discolouring around the burners, because of the high flame temperature.

Care and cleaning 23

Burners and trivets

You can remove and clean these parts with hot soapy water or other appropriate products - see ‘Cleaning chart’.

After cleaning, check that the burners and their flame spreaders are dry before replacing correctly.

It is very important to check that the burner flame spreader and the cap have been correctly positioned. Failure to do so can cause serious problems.

Note: to avoid damage to the electronic ignition, do not try to light a burner without all burner parts correctly in place.

Replacing the burners

It is very important to check that the burner flame spreader and the cap have been correctly positioned (see Fig. 18). Failure to do so can cause serious problems.

Check that the ignitor (Figs. 18 and 20) is always clean to ensure trouble-freesparking.

In the models with the flame failure safety device, check that the probe (Figs. 18 and 20) next to each burner is always clean to ensure correct operation of the safety valves.

Both the ignitor and probe must be very carefully cleaned using a toothbrush and methylated spirits (Fig.15).
