3 electrolux gas cooktops using your cooktop
Using your cooktop
Gas Controls
Each burner is controlled by a control knob. The markings on
the control panel indicate which burner the knob controls, and
the setting for that burner (see Figure 3).
Figure 3
NOTE! Gas controls turn anticlockwise from 'OFF' and have
limited movement.
Lighting burners
Electronic ignition: These cooktops are fitted with a
mains powered, zero ignition time device connected to
thermoelectric safety gas valves. When the appliance has
been connected and the power is on, depressing any knob
will release sparks to all burners.
To light a burner, the knob must be turned to the
'HIGH' position, then pushed down. There is no need
to hold the knob down, the ignition will be instantaneous.
The spark will continue for 5 seconds. If the flame goes out
when the knob is released simply depress the knob again.
The height of the flame can be varied by turning the control
knob toward the 'LOW' position.
• Keep hands clear of burners when lighting.
• If burner does not light within 5 seconds, turn knob
to 'OFF' position, allow gas to disperse, then try
lighting again.
• Burners MUST be operated between 'HIGH' and 'LOW'
settings only.
In the absence of electrical power, carry out the ignition
directly to the burner with a hand held ignition source. Push
the knob down as far as possible for approx. 5 seconds.
If the flame goes out when the knob is released, simply
depress the knob again, this time holding it down with
slightly more force for the same length of time.
Choice of gas burner
For your convenience there is a choice of burners –
• A small burner for special low heat and slow cooking
• A medium burner for normal cooking and simmering
• A wok burner for very fast heating using a wok or large
pot or pan.
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 (Figure 4). Do not boil food too rapidly.
A vigorous boil will not cook food any faster, and will
waste energy.
Pots and pans
All common pots and pans; aluminium, stainless steel,
cast iron, ceramic, etc., may be used on the gas burners.
Ensure that the pots or pans are steady and have flat
bases to avoid dangerous spill-over of hot liquids and
wasted energy.
Never use asbestos mats, wire mats or grids, aluminium
foil as it can lead to overheating, cracked enamel or broken
glass. The warranty will be void if these items are used
and cause a failure. Woks should only be used on the wok
burner and wok support trivet.
