!This unit may be installed and used only in permanently ventilated rooms in accordance with current national regulations. The following requirements must be observed:

• The room must be equipped with an air extraction system that expels any combustion fumes. This may consist of a hood or an electric fan that automatically starts each time the appliance is switched on.

The air circulation system may take air directly from the outside by means of a pipe with an inner cross section of at least 100 cm2; the opening must not be vulnerable to any type of blockages.

The system can also provide the air needed for combustion indirectly, i.e. from adjacent rooms fitted with air circulation tubes as described above. However, these rooms must not be communal rooms, bedrooms or rooms that may present a fire hazard.

It is advisable to keep only the cylinder being used in the room, positioned so that it is not subject to heat produced by external sources (ovens, fireplaces, stoves, etc. ) which could raise the temperature of the cylinder above 50°C.

If the hob is installed beneath a wall cabinet, the latter must be situated at a minimum of 700 mm above the hob.

Before the installation remove the grids and burners from the hob and turn it upside down, making sure you don’t damage the thermocouples and spark plugs.

Apply the seals that come with the appliance along the outer edges of the hob to prevent any passage of air, humidity and water (see Figure).
