anticlockwise to the maximum power setting.
While the control knob is still pressed down, sparks are
produced on all burners. The flame ignites.
Release the control knob.
Turn the control knob to the required setting.
If it does not come on, turn the control knob to the off setting
and repeat the steps above. This time, press and hold the
control knob for longer (up to 10 seconds).
Risk of deflagration!
If after 15 seconds the flame does not ignite, switch off the
burner and open a nearby window or door. Wait at least one
minute before trying to switch the burner back on.
Safety system
Depending on the model, your hob may have a safety system
(thermocouple) that prevents the flow of gas if the burners
accidentally switch off.
To ensure that this device is active:
Switch on the burner as usual.
Without releasing the control knob, press and hold it down
firmly for 4 seconds after lighting the flame.

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.
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.
Keep the burner as clean as possible. If the ignition sparkers
are dirty they will not light properly. Clean them periodically
using a small non-wire brush. Bear in mind that the ignition
sparkers must not suffer any serious impacts.
Use "Large" setting to bring the pan to the boil, then adjust the
flame between "Large flame" and "Economy flame" to maintain
the required pan temperature.
The use of a cooktop leads to the production of heat and
moisture in the kitchen. For this reason make sure that the
