POSITIONING THE GAS CYLINDER
Ensure that the gas cylinder is not placed in contact or underneath the hob. The hose should be routed away from the hob without touching any hot surfaces. Ensure the cylinder is placed on a firm and level surface and that the hose is neither stretched nor twisted when connected. The cylinder must also be located to give good access to connect and disconnect the regulator, or to turn off in an emergency.
FIRST TIME LIGHTING
To light any individual burner it may be necessary to purge all pipe work of air. To do this, depress and hold in the full on position as many controls knobs as possible until there is evidence of free gas flow. Upon detection of gas flow return all but one control knobs to the ‘OFF’ position and light the gas at the burner corresponding to the control knob in the depressed position. When the gas at the burner is burning correctly shut it down and repeat the lighting process for the remaining burners.
It is not recommended that a boiling top unit be sited adjacent to either a counter top fryer or a free standing fryer.
If the appliance is to be installed on a counter top it shall be of a sturdy construction to hold the weight of the appliance. The counter top shall be of a non-combustible material.
The appliance when installed on a suitable counter top shall be level.
Please ensure that the gas isolation valve for the appliance is turned to the open position before attempting to light this unit.
From the OFF position: press and turn the control knob anti-clockwise to any position between the two stylized flames to allow gas through to the burner. Maintaining the control knob depressed, manually light the gas at the burner using a taper or piezo ignitor wand. On establishing a flame at the burner, keep the knob depressed for approximately 15 seconds then release. The burner should remain lit.
If the appliance has stood unused for any length of time it may be necessary to purge the burner feed pipes of air. To purge the burner feed pipes of air depress and rotate a control knob to the full on position. Maintain the knob in the depressed position for 20- 30seconds and then light the gas at the burner. Repeat as necessary until the gas ignites.

It is not recommended that multiple lit burners are covered at any one time by large gastronome pans or detachable griddle plates.
Pans should be placed centrally on the pan support in relation to the burner for maximum efficiency.
The recommended pan base diameters are no smaller than 150mm and no larger than 400mm.
Pans should never be placed in such a position that they become a hazard from tipping
