limited movement.
Lighting burners
Electronic ignition: These cooktops are fitted with mains
powered ignition. When the appliance has been connected
and the power is on, depressing any knob will release
sparks to all burners.
• 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.
To light a burner, the knob must be turned to the
'HIGH' position, then pushed down as far as possible
for approximately 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.
The height of the flame can be varied by turning the control
knob toward the
'LOW' position.
In the absence of electrical power, carry out the ignition
directly to the burner with a hand held ignition source.
