Installation,14 - Whirlpool ACMT 6130/WH/2 Operating Instructions Manual


Room ventilation
The appliance may only be installed in permanently-
ventilated rooms, according to 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
per kW of installed power).
The air inlets, protected by grilles, should have a duct
with an inner cross section of at least 100 cm
should 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
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 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.
Ventilation opening for
comburent air
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 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).
Fumes channelled
straight outside
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
Positioning and levelling
It is possible to install the appliance alongside
cupboards whose height does not exceed that of the
hob surface.
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, 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 200 mm away
from them.
• 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.
Fumes channelled through a
chimney or a branched flue
system (reserved for cooking
