Gas connection

This appliance is supplied for use with natural Gas.
However, it can be converted for use with LPG. Refer
to LP conversion on page 10.
Supply pipe sizing
The total hourly gas consumption for the appliance is
shown on the data label. The required supply pressure
(i.e. at inlet to appliance regulator) for each gas type is
shown on the data label, and given in Table 3 (page 10).
Use this information in conjunction with the length of run,
number of elbows, tees and bends, the available service
pressure and the supply requirements of other installed
appliances to determine a suitable pipe size.
For assistance in this matter refer to the appropriate
section of the Installation Code AS5601.
An AGA certified class B or D flexible connection may
be used to connect the cooktop in accordance with
the AS5601 and in particular section 4.8. Where a hose
assembly is used and the cooktop is in the installed
position, the hose assembly shall be suitable for connection
to a fixed consumer piping outlet located at a point
800 – 850mm above the floor and in the region outside
the width of the appliance to a distance of 250mm. The
point of connection to consumer piping must be accessible
with appliance installed.
Elbow positioning
It is possible to reposition the elbow if required by
loosening the locking nut and elbow by using two
spanners. Re-tighten the entire assembly after the elbow
has been repositioned. When fitting elbow to appliance,
ensure that the sealing washer is fitted.
Regulator
An appliance regulator is provided. The regulator must be
positioned so that the pressure test nipple is accessible
when the appliance is installed.
Connect the gas supply to the ½" B.S.P. internal thread
inlet of the regulator. Refer to 'bench cutout' (Figure 6) for
connection point position.
Regulators are supplied pre-adjusted and configured by the
component maker for use with Natural Gas.
The appliance installer is not required to make an
adjustment to obtain the correct outlet pressure setting.
An arrow on the base of the regulator indicates the
direction of gas flow when the inlet and outlet of the
regulator is orientated correctly. When the regulator has
been fitted check for leaks from the connections with
soapy water.
Operation on N.G./S.N.G.
Assembly of Regulator
The assembly of the regulator to the cooktop manifold is
achieved via the elbow union and sealing washer supplied,
refer to figure 9.
The ½" parallel thread connects to the manifold, and the
sealing washer is placed between the manifold end and
the flat face on the elbow.
The ½" tapered thread connects to the outlet of the
regulator, and is sealed on the thread using approved
thread sealing tape or approved thread sealing compound.
The inlet of the regulator is a ½" parallel thread and
is connected to consumer piping or hose assembly.
Regulators are supplied pre-adjusted and configured
by the component maker for use with Natural Gas.
The appliance installer is not required to make an
adjustment to obtain the correct outlet pressure setting.
An arrow on the base of the regulator indicates the direction
of gas flow when the inlet and outlet of the regulator is
orientated correctly. When the regulator has been fitted
check for leaks from the connections with soapy water.
