PROVISION FOR VENTILATION
The room where the Cooker is installed should have permanent
ventilation as follows:
"Ventilation must be in accordance with AS5601/AG 601 - Gas
Installations. In general, the appliance should have adequate
ventilation for complete combustion of gas, proper flueing and to
maintain temperature of immediate surroundings within safe limits."
- Do not install in a bed-sitting room, a bathroom or shower room.
If there is another fuel burning appliance in the same room, a
higher level of ventilation will be required, you should consults
" the safety requirements".
In addition to the above, during prolonged use, opening a window
in the same room is recommended. This will avoid the build up
of excessive moisture and condensation.

POSITIONING

Important: Fix the chain located next to the gas connection on
both sides of the cooker to the wall to prevent the cooker from
tilting. Both chains must be securely fixed.
Make sure that the wall surface behind the Cooker is non-
combustable (will not catch fire).
Where a painted surface is adjacent, a fire retardent paint surface
is recommended. Wallpaper, wood, or fabric should not be used
behind or next to the cooker.
"Any adjoining wall surface situated within 200mm from the edge
of any hob burner must be a suitable non-combustible material
for a height of 150mm for the entire length of the hob. Any
combustible construction above the hotplate must be at least
650mm above the maintop." Ensure that a power and gas supply
are nearby. The Cooker should be located carefully so that the
heat produced by it has plenty of space to escape. The diagram
below shows an ideal configuration.

"If the cooker is being fitted next to cupboards or adjoing wall
surfaces, which are within 200mm from the edge of the hob
burner and of a suitable non-combustible material as specified
in AS5601, ensure that a total gap of at least 12cm is left
between the edge of the cooker". This gap could be split equally,
i.e. 6cm on each side, or unequally, to suit circumstances. This
is to allow plenty of space for the heat produced by the hob to
escape at each side of it.
Note:
the cooker is fitted with a metallic rear hob protecting
profile ("F", see fig. 1) which must be assembled in
following way:
- put the profile (F) on the rear part of the cooker as in fig.
1, and screw the delivered screws (V) as in fig. 1A.

Note:
The cooker is fitted with 4 legs for an eventual alignment in height
with the furniture ( fig. 1B ).
