Setting Surface Controls
Check Burner Cap Placement Before
Operating the Surface Burners
To prevent ﬂ are-ups and avoid creation of harmful by-
products, DO NOT use the cooktop without all burner caps
properly installed to ensure proper ignition and gas ﬂ ame
It is very important to be sure that all surface burner caps
and burner grates are properly installed and in the correct
locations BEFORE operating the cooktop burners.
• Always keep surface burner caps in place whenever
using a surface burner.
• When placing the burner caps, be sure that all burner caps
are seated ﬁ rmly and rest level on top of burner heads.
• For proper ﬂ ow of gas and ignition of burners DO NOT
allow spills, food, cleaning agents or any other material to
enter the gas oriﬁ ce port opening.
Round Style Burners
The burner cap lip (See Fig. 1) should ﬁ t snug into the
center of burner head and rest level. Refer to Figs. 2 & 3
for correct and incorrect burner cap placement. Once in
place, you may check the ﬁ t by gently sliding the burner
cap from side to side (Fig. 4) to be sure it is centered and
ﬁ rmly seated. When the burner cap lip makes contact inside
the center of the burner head you will be able to hear the
burner cap click. Please note that the burner cap SHOULD
NOT move off the center of the burner head when sliding
from side to side.
Bridge Style Burners
Install Burner Caps, these include one Bridge Burner
Center Cap (rectangular shaped) and the two Bridge Burner
End Caps (The Bridge Burner End Caps will ﬁ t either the
front or rear Bridge Burner Head locations). Make sure
that the lips located under the Bridge Burner Caps fall into
the slots located in the Bridge Burner Head (See arrows in
Figure 5) and that all the Bridge Burner Caps lie ﬂ at and
evenly on the Bridge Burner Head.
