Switching on manually

1.

Press the control knob for the selected burner and 

turn it anticlockwise to the highest power setting.

2.

Hold an igniter or a naked flame (such as a lighter or 

a match) against the burner.

Automatic ignition

If your appliance has automatic ignition (ignition plugs):

1.

Press the control knob for the selected burner and 

turn it anticlockwise to the highest power setting.

Sparks are produced on all burners while you are 

pressing and holding the control knob and the 

³

 

symbol appears on the display. The burner ignites.

2.

Release the control knob.

3.

Turn the control knob to the required position.

If the burner does not ignite, switch it off and repeat the 

steps described above. This time, hold the control knob 

down for longer (up to 10 seconds).

:

Warning – Risk of deflagration! 

If the burner does not switch on after 10 seconds, 

switch off the control knob and open the door or 

window in the room. Wait at least a minute before 

igniting the burner again.

Note: 

It is important to keep the appliance clean. If the 

ignition plugs are dirty, this may cause ignition faults. 

Clean the ignition plugs regularly with a small non-

metallic brush. Take care to prevent the ignition plugs 

from suffering any heavy knocks.

Safety system

Your hob is equipped with a safety system 

(thermocouple) that cuts off the gas when the burners 

are accidentally switched off.

To ensure that this device is active:

1.

Switch on the burner as usual.

2.

Without releasing the control knob, press and hold it 

down firmly for 4 seconds after lighting the flame.

Switching off a burner

Turn the control knob clockwise to position 0. The 

 

symbol will appear in the display and the residual heat 

indicator will appear after a few seconds.
A few seconds after the burner is switched off, a sound 

(thud) will be produced. This is not a fault - this means 

that the safety device is no longer operating.

Warnings

It is normal to hear a soft whistling noise while the 

burner is operating.
When first used, it is normal for the burner to give off 

odours. This does not pose any risk and does not 

indicate a malfunction. They will disappear in time.

An orange-coloured flame is normal. This is caused by 

the presence of dust in the atmosphere, spilt liquids, 

etc.
If the burner flames are accidentally blown out, switch 

off the burner operating control knob and do not try to 

relight it for at least 1 minute.

Precautions for use

The following advice is intended to help you save 

energy and prevent pan damage:

Use pans which are the 

right size for each burner.

Do not use small pans on 

large burners. The flame 

must not touch the sides 

of the pan.
Do not use damaged pans, 

which do not sit evenly on 

the hob. Pans may tip over.

Only use pans with a thick, 

flat base.

Do not cook without using a 

lid and make sure the lid is 

properly fitted. This wastes 

energy.

Always centre the pan over 

the burner, not to one side. 

Otherwise it could tip over.

Do not place large pans on 

the burners near the control 

knobs. These may be 

damaged by the very high 

temperatures.
Place the pans on the pan 

supports, never directly on 

the burner.

Make sure that the pan 

supports and burner caps 

are correctly positioned 

before using the appliance.
