ignition on all burners, both separately and in
combination. (For correct procedure refer to page 3
Lighting Burners). Note that additional time needs to
be allowed for the initial lighting as air has to be purged
from the pipes.

(Figure 11). If it is much larger or much smaller than
expected, the injector size and supply pressure require
checking. Where a flame is unsatisfactory, refer to the
Troubleshooting Guide (page 5) to correct the fault. If
