USERS (Pages 2-3)/ INSTALLATION (Pages 4-7)







The Super Hot Toaster has a single aerated burner, the design of which produces two parallel ribbons of flame which run across the front of the fire bed. The rear ribbon of flame is ignited first and the front ribbon cross-lights from it instantaneously. A single gas control selects ignition (pilot only) and can be turned anticlockwise to select a high rate and then a reduced input at the maximum rotation. For extra safety the control is designed so that gas cannot be allowed to reach the burner until pilot ignition has been proven. A separate push button piezo igniter provides pilot ignition.

A Flame Supervision Device (FSD) is fitted. This ensures that if the pilot goes out for any reason (including being turned off), the gas flow to the burner is cut off until the full lighting procedure is repeated. The oxy-pilot or O.D.S. will cause the appliance to ‘shut off’ in the event of continued spillage occurring under hazardous or blocked flue conditions. The burner assembly is fixed to the base of the radiant box which also includes a fire back made of ceramic fibre, this forms an insulating surface to reflect heat into the fire bed, raising its temperature and increasing the amount of heat radiated into the room. A decorative brass trim completes the front face of the appliance.

There are two types of front and fret available for this appliance; these have perforated frets to allow air to be entrained into the fire bed to ensure clean combustion. The optional fire fronts and frets are listed in figure 11. If other Fronts and Frets are to be used they must have a minimum open area in the fret of 20 square centimetres and 60 square centimetres in the Front, as shown in figure 11.

A flame adjustment lever is fitted to allow a longer softer flame to be used to enhance the appearance of the firebed; this can be operated in either the high or low position via the control lever on the front fascia panel.

The Super Hot Toaster is a decorative fuel effect appliance designed and manufactured to the requirements of the British Standards Institution BS 5258 Part 12: 1990 and is for use on Natural Gas only.

All gas appliance installations must be installed by a competent person in accordance with the current Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1994 (as amended) or the rules in force and in accordance with the attached Installation Instructions, failure to do so could lead to prosecution.

Areas of this appliance will become hot after prolonged running and it is recommended that for the protection of the very young, elderly and infirm a fireguard conforming to BS 6539 or BS 6778 be used.

Care should be taken to prevent any damage being caused to surrounding soft furnishings or decor e.g. many embossed vinyl wall coverings may become discoloured if located too close to the appliance. Clearances required for combustible shelves are shown on page 3.

It is recommended that the chimney or flue should be swept annually by a competent person and the appliance checked for spillage (smoke test) and that there are no excessive deposits of soot.

The curing effect of heating the coals will cause an initial odour which, although not harmful, may require additional ventilation until the odour has disappeared. This appliance will run on Full for approximately 4.4 hours on one therm of gas.

This product uses fuel effect pieces, gaskets and insulation material containing Refractory Ceramic Fibre (RCF), which are man-made vitreous silicate fibres. Excessive exposure to these materials may cause temporary irritation to eyes, skin and respiratory tract, consequently, it makes sense to take care when handling these articles to ensure that the release of dust is kept to a minimum.

Allow the appliance to cool for two to three hours before removing all of the coals and ceramic blocks for cleaning purposes. Once all the ceramics are removed from the fire bed check that no debris is located in the burner slots (both front & rear). If any debris is present it may easily be removed by using a small piece of thin cardboard to ease out any foreign matter. Be sure to remove the cardboard after use. Cleaning should be carried out in a well-ventilated area or in the open air, by gently brushing with the pieces held away from your face so that you avoid inhaling the dust. We do not recommend the use of a normal domestic vacuum cleaner, which may blow dust back into the air.

The gas connection to this appliance is made with 8mm O/D rigid or semi rigid tube to a pressure test elbow situated on the left-hand side of the burner as shown in Fig 1. It advisable to provide a means of isolating the gas supply to the appliance for servicing with either a restrictor elbow or isolation cock as shown in Fig 1. A 45mm length of Bundy is supplied for use with a restrictor elbow or a 90 degree bend for use with an isolation cock; (the supply tube support bracket may be removed as shown in Fig 4. Provision is made in the rear of the box to make a concealed connection; (additional holes may be drilled as required). The installer is reminded of the requirements of BS 6891 1988 dealing with enclosed pipes. The standard requires that when a gas pipe is fed through a wall, the pipe should be enclosed in a tight sleeve to protect against failure caused by movement and shall be constructed to prevent a passage of gas either between the pipe and sleeve or sleeve and the wall. If a gas supply is required to be fed from either the left or right across the front of the appliance it should be routed as shown in Fig 7. It is only the MACH II Cast Iron Front & Fret that has provision for this requirement alternative Fronts & Frets will need modifying to allow access for the supply tube, see Fig 5. If a JB front and fret is being used it will require two stops to be fitted using the self-tap screws and spacers shown in Fig 7.
