The appliance may only be installed in permanently-
ventilated rooms, according to current national
legislation and any subsequent amendments in force.
The room in which the appliance is installed must be
ventilated adequately in order to provide as much air
as is needed by the normal gas combustion process
(the flow of air must not be lower than 2 m
of installed power).
The air inlets, protected by grilles, should have a
duct with an inner cross section of at least 100 cm
and should be positioned so that they are not liable
to even partial obstruction ( see figure A ).
These inlets should be enlarged by 100% - with a
minimum of 200 cm
hob is not equipped with a flame failure safety
device. When the flow of air is provided in an
indirect manner from adjacent rooms ( see figure B ),
provided that these are not communal parts of a
building, areas with increased fire hazards or
bedrooms, the inlets should be fitted with a
ventilation duct leading outside as described above.

After prolonged use of the appliance, it is
advisable to open a window or increase the speed of
any fans used.
Disposing of combustion fumes
The efficient removal of combustion fumes should
be guaranteed using a hood which is connected to a
safe and efficient natural suction chimney, or using
an electric fan which begins to operate automatically
every time the appliance is switched on ( see figure ).
The liquefied petroleum gases are heavier than air
and collect by the floor, therefore all rooms
containing LPG cylinders must have openings
leading outside so that any leaked gas can escape
LPG cylinders, therefore, whether partially or
completely full, must not be installed or stored in
rooms or storage areas which are below ground level
(cellars, etc.). Only the cylinder currently in use
should be stored in the room; this should also be
kept well away from sources of heat (ovens,
chimneys, stoves) which may cause the temperature
of the cylinder to rise above 50°C.
Positioning and levelling
The appliance may be installed alongside any
cupboards whose height does not exceed that of the
Make sure that the wall which is in contact with the
back of the appliance is made from a non-
flammable, heat-resistant material (T 90°C).
To install the appliance correctly:
• Place it in the kitchen, the dining room or the
studio flat (not in the bathroom).
• If the top of the hob is higher than the cupboards,
the appliance must be installed at least 600 mm
away from them.
