Complete Installation

Electronic Ignition System
Initial lighting and gas flame adjustments
This cooktop is equipped for electronic auto-reignition by means
of a spark igniter located at the rear of each burner. The burners
are designed to light at any valve rotation that admits sufficient
gas flow to support a flame and to automatically relight following
a loss of flame due to a draft or other adverse condition. This
feature is provided only as a convenience.
Check Operation of Surface Burners
Push in and turn the surface burners control knobs to light.
The surface burner flame should light within 4 seconds. The first
time a surface burner is lighted it may take longer that 4 seconds
to light because of air in the gas line.
Check the flame on "HIGH" for a blue color. It should be clean
and soft in character. No yellow tip, blowing or lifting of flame
should occur. Occasional orange flashes are normal and reflect
different elements in the air or gas.
After verifying the proper burner operation, turn the control knobs
to "OFF."
If burners do not light properly:
Turn surface burner control knob to the "OFF" position.
Check that the power supply cord is plugged in and the
circuit breaker has not tripped or the fuse blown.
Check that the gas shutoff valves are set to the "open"
Check that burner caps are properly positioned on burner
Recheck operation of surface burners. If a burner does not light
at this point, contact your dealer or authorized service company
for assistance.
Check Flame Height
Adjust the height of surface burner flames.
The surface burner "low" flame should be a steady blue flame
approximately ¼" (0.64 cm) high.
A. Low flame
B. High flame
