assembly of regulator
the assembly of the regulator to the cooktop manifold
is achieved via the elbow union and sealing washer
supplied,refertofigure9.
The½"parallelthreadconnectstothemanifold,andthe
sealing washer is placed between the manifold end and
the flat face on the elbow.
the ½" tapered thread connects to the outlet of
theregulator,andissealedonthethreadusing
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.
Regulatorsaresuppliedpre-adjustedandconfigured
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
beenfittedcheckforleaksfromtheconnectionswith
soapy water.

CHECKInG tHE GAS SuppLY
1. Check the manometer zero point is correct.
2. Connect the manometer to the cooktop pressure
point. this is located on the regulator.
3. turn on the gas supply and electricity and try to
ignite the gas.
NOTE! It will take additional time to light the gas for the
first time as air needs to be purged from the pipes.
4. With the appliance operating check the outlet pressure

•  w henallburnersoftheapplianceareoperating
atmaximum,

•  w henthesmallestburneroftheapplianceis
operating at minimum.
under these conditions the outlet pressure should not
vary from the nominal outlet pressure of 1.00kpa by
more than ±0.20kpa.
Iftheregulatorappearstonotbeperformingsatisfactorily,
then check the following points:
1. If the outlet pressure is consistently too low then the
inlet pressure may be too low and adjustment of an
upstreamregulatormaybeneeded,oranupstream
regulatororvalvewithinsufficientflowcapacitymay
be present in the gas supply line. If this is suspected
then it may be necessary to repeat the checks whilst
measuring both the inlet and outlet pressure to
determine if the inlet pressure is in the range
1.13 – 5kpa.

LP Conversion – Important
This appliance is fitted with natural Gas
burner injectors.
please follow the procedure below if a conversion to suit
Lp gas is required.
the conversion kit contains appropriate LpG injectors
and 1 LpG sticker.
