Operation
INSTALLATION
Any gas installation must be carried out by
a registered CORGI installer, and in
accordance with existing rules and
regulations.
The relevant instructions are to be found in the
second section of this manual.
Please ensure that when the appliance is installed, it
is easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a
breakdown.
WHEN THE COOKER IS FIRST INSTALLED
Once the cooker has been installed, it is
important to remove any protective
materials, which were put on in the factory.
Hob burners
To light a burner, turn the relevant control knob
anticlockwise to maximum position. At the same time
push the electric ignition button which is marked with
a little spark.. Then adjust the flame as required.
If the burner does not ignite, turn the control knob to
zero, and try again.
When switching on the mains, after
installation or a power cut, it is quite normal
for the spark generator to be activated
automatically.
To ensure maximum burner efficiency, you should
only use pots and pans with a flat bottom fitting the
size of the burner used (see table).

If you use a saucepan which is smaller than
the recommended size, the flame will spread
beyond the bottom of the pan, causing the
handle to overheat.
As soon as a liquid starts boiling, turn down
the flame so that it will barely keep the
liquid simmering.
Take care when frying food in hot oil or fat,
as the overheated splashes could easily
ignite.
If the control knobs become difficult to turn,
please contact your local Zanussi Service
Centre.
