OPERATION ON N.G./S.N.G
This appliance is supplied for use with Natural Gas.
However, it can be converted for use with LPG.
Refer to LP conversion on page 27.
Supply pipe sizing
The total hourly gas consumption for the appliance is
shown on the data label. The required supply pressure
(i.e. at inlet to appliance regulator) for each gas type is
shown on the data label, and given in Table 3 (page 26).
Use this information in conjunction with the length of run,
number of elbows, tees and bends, the available service
pressure and the supply requirements of other installed
appliances to determine a suitable pipe size.
For assistance in this matter refer to the appropriate
section of AS/NZS 5601.1 or AS/NZS 5601.2.
An AGA certified class B or D flexible connection may
be used to connect the cooktop in accordance with
AS/NZS 5601.1, in particular section 5.9 and clause
184.108.40.206, or AS/NZS 5601.2, in particular section 2.11.
Where a hose assembly is used and the cooktop is in the
installed position, the hose assembly shall be suitable for
connection to a fixed consumer piping outlet located at
a point 800 – 850mm above the floor and in the region
outside the width of the appliance to a distance of 250mm.
The point of connection to consumer piping must be
accessible with appliance installed.
It is possible to reposition the elbow if required by
loosening the locking nut and elbow by using two
spanners. Re-tighten the entire assembly after the elbow
has been repositioned. When fitting elbow to appliance,
ensure that the sealing washer is fitted.
Note to Installer: Assembly of elbow to manifold at rear
of unit requires two spanners to secure locking nut and
ensure leak free connection. For this reason the elbow is
best secured onto cooktop manifold before installing unit
An appliance regulator is provided. The regulator must be
positioned so that the pressure test nipple is accessible
when the appliance is installed.
Connect the gas supply to the ½" B.S.P. internal thread
inlet of the regulator. Refer to 'bench cutout' (Figure 6) for
connection point position.
Regulators are supplied pre-adjusted and configured by the
component maker for use with Natural Gas.
The appliance installer is not required to make an
adjustment to obtain the correct outlet pressure setting.
An arrow on the base of the regulator indicates the
direction of gas flow when the inlet and outlet of the
regulator is orientated correctly. When the regulator has
been fitted check for leaks from the connections with
