Further details of the power requirement of the individual product will be found in the users’ instruction and on the appliance rating plate. In the case of built-in product you are advised, should you wish to use a longer cable than the one supplied, that a suitably rated heat resistant type must be used.
The wiring must be connected to the mains supply as follows:
CONNECT TO SPUR TERMINAL
Green & Yellow Wire Earth Connection
Blue Wire Neutral Connection
Brown Wire Live Connection
Note: We do not advocate the use of earth leakage devices with electric cooking appliances installed to spur points because of the «nuisance tripping» which may occur. You are again reminded that the appliance must be correctly earthed, the manufacturer declines any responsibility for any event occurring as a result of incorrect electrical installation.
Check the data on the rating plate, located on the outside of the unit, to ensure that the supply and input voltage are suitable.
Before connection, check the earthing system.
By Law, this appliance must be earthed. If this regulation is not complied with, the Manufacturer will not be responsible for any damage caused to persons or property. If a plug is not already attached, fit a plug appropriate to the load indicated on the rating plate. The earth wire is coloured yellow/green. The plug should always be accessible.
Where the Hob is connected direct to the electricity supply, a circuit breaker must be fitted.
If the power supply cord is damaged this is to be replaced by a qualified engineer so as to prevent any potential risk.
The earth wire ( green and yellow coloured ) must be at least 10 mm longer than the live and neutral wires.
The section of the cable used must be of the correct size in relation to the absorbed power of the hob.
Please check rating plate for the power details and ensure that the power supply cord is of the type 3×0.75 mm² H05 GG-F for 60-75cm hobs or H05-V2V2-F for 75cm hobs.
If an appliance is not fitted with a supply cord and a plug, or with other means for disconnection from the supply mains having a contact separation in all poles that provide full disconnection under overvoltage category III conditions, the instructions shall state that means for disconnection must be incorporated in the fixed wiring in accordance with the wiring rules.
These instructions are for qualified personnel, installation of equipment must be in line with the relevant national standard. (For U.K. only: by law the gas installationcommissioning must be carried out by a “Gas Safe” installer)
All work must be carried out with the electricity supply disconnected.
The rating plate on the hob shows the type of gas with which it is designed to be used. Connection to the mains gas supply or gas cylinder should be carried out after having checked that it is regulated for the type of gas with which it will be supplied. If it is not correctly regulated see the instructions in the following paragraphs to change gas setting.
For liquid gas (cylinder gas) use pressure regulators which comply with the relevant national standards.
Use only pipes, washers and sealing washers which comply with the relevant national standards.
For some models a conic link is furnished to outfit for the installation in the countries where this type of link is obligatory; in picture 8 it is pointed out how to recognize the different types of links (CY = cylindrical, CO = conic). In every case the cylindrical part of the link has to be connected to the hob.
When connecting the hob to the gas supply via use of flexible hoses please ensure that the maximum distance covered by the hose does not exceed 2 metres.
The flexible tube shall be fitted in such a way that it cannot come into contact with a moveable part of the housing unit (e.g. a drawer) and does not pass through any space where it may become crushed/ kinked or damaged in any way.
To prevent any potential damage to the hob please carry out the installation following this sequence (picture 6):
- As illustrated, assemble parts in sequence:
A: 1/2 Male Adaptor Cylindrical
B: 1/2 Seal
C: 1/2 Female Gas Adaptor Conical-Cylindrical or Cylindirical-Cylindirical
- Tighten the joints with the spanner, remembering to twist the pipes into position.
- Attach fitting C to mains gas supply using rigid copper pipe or flexible steel pipe.
IMPORTANT: carry out a final check for leaks on the pipe connections using a soapy solution. NEVER USE A FLAME.
Also, make sure that the flexible pipe cannot come into contact with a moving part of the cabinet (eg.adrawer) and that it is not situated where it could be damaged.
Warning: If gas can be smelt in the vicinity of this appliance turn off the gas supply to the appliance and call the engineer directly. Do not search for a leak with a naked flame.
ADAPTING THE HOB TO DIFFERENT TYPES OF GAS
To adapt the Hob for use with different types of gas, carry out the following instructions:
- Remove the grids and burners
