Congratulations and thank you for choosing an Electrolux Product. We are sure you will find your new
cooktop a pleasure to use and a great asset to your cooking. Before you use the cooktop, we recommend
that you read through the whole user manual which provides the description of the cooktop and its
functions. To avoid the risks that are always present when you use a gas or electric appliance, it is important
that the cooktop is installed correctly and that you read the safety instructions carefully to avoid misuse and
hazards. For future reference, please store this booklet in a safe place.

This appliance is adjusted for use with the particular gas shown on the gas-type label. However, it can be
converted for use with other gases, please refer to conversion section of this booklet.
Do not spray aerosols in the vicinity of this appliance while it is in operation as aerosols can contain
• The appliance is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision
• Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance
• A steam cleaner is not to be used
• For appliance with supply cord:
• If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or its service agent or a
similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard
• It is necessary to have plug accessible after installation
• This appliance must not be used as a space heater
• The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat and moisture in the room in which it
is installed. Ensure that the kitchen is well ventilated: keep natural ventilation holes open or install a
mechanical ventilation device (mechanical extractor hood).
• Prolonged intensive use of the appliance may call for additional ventilation, for example opening of a window,
or more effective ventilation, for example increasing the level of mechanical ventilation where present.
CONTROLS AND OPERATION
• Each burner is controlled by a valve which is activated by a control knob that diagrammatically shows
high to low (Fig 1A).
• Where a solid hotplate is fitted it is controlled by an infinite control knob which gives a range from high to
low using the numbers 6 to 1 as a guide (Fig 1B). This varies the amount of heat that the element delivers.
The control can be turned either clockwise or counter-clockwise to the desired position. There is a click
felt at the maximum point, number 6, to indicate high position.
These cooktops are fitted with battery or mains powered ignition. When the appliance has been connected and the
power is switched on, depressing any knob will release sparks to all burners. To
light a burner turn the corresponding knob to the 'High' position while depressing
the knob. For standard models the knob may be released once the flame is
established. For Flame Safeguard Models the knob must be held down for 5-10
seconds once the burner is ignited. If the flame goes out when the knob is
depressed simply depress the knob again and hold it down for the required
length of time. The height of the flame can be varied by turning the control knob
toward the 'Low' position. In the absence of electrical power, carry out the
ignition directly to the burner with a match or taper.
Caution:- In the event of the burner flame being accidentally
extinguished, turn off the burner control and do not attempt to
re-ignite the burner for at least 1 minute.
CHOICE OF BURNER
There are four burner sizes or three burners and an electric hotplate
(where fitted) for your convenience.
• A small burner for special low heat and slow cooking OR solid hotplate
(models with an electric element fitted).
• A medium burner for normal cooking and simmering.
• A large burner for fast heating and large utensils.
• A Wok burner for very fast heating using a Wok or large utensil.
To conserve gas, place the pan centrally over the burner and adjust the
flame so that it does not extend past the edge of the pan (Fig. 2).
