The appliance may only be installed in permanently-
ventilated rooms, in accordance with current national
legislation. The room in which the appliance is installed
must be ventilated adequately so as 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
The air inlets, protected by grilles, should have a duct
with an inner cross section of at least 100 cm
be positioned so that they are not liable to even partial
obstruction (see fi gure A).
These inlets should be enlarged by 100% - with a
minimum of 200 cm

the flow of air is provided in an indirect manner from
adjacent rooms (see fi gure 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.

Disposing of combustion fumes
The disposal of combustion fumes should be guaranteed
using a hood connected to a safe and efficient natural
suction chimney, or using an electric fan that begins
to operate automatically every time the appliance is
switched on (see fi gure).
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 easily.
LPG cylinders, therefore, whether partially or completely
full, must not be installed or stored in rooms or storage
areas that are below ground level (cellars, etc.). Only
the cylinder being used should be stored in the room;
this should also be kept well away from sources of
heat (ovens, chimneys, stoves) that may cause the
temperature of the cylinder to rise above 50°C.
Positioning and levelling
It is possible to install the appliance alongside
cupboards whose height does not exceed that of the
Make sure that the wall 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 bed-sit
(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
• If the cooker is installed underneath a wall cabinet,
there must be a minimum distance of 420 mm between
this cabinet and the top of the hob.
This distance should be increased to 700 mm if the wall
cabinets are flammable (see fi gure).
