Congratulations on the purchase of your new Gas Cooktop.

We strongly recommend that you read these Use and Care Instructions carefully to take full advantage of the features offered by this product. This books covers operational instructions for the CG602 and GC9002 Series Gas Cooktops.


1.Household appliances are not intended to be played with by children.

2.Children or persons with a disability that may limit their ability to use the appliance, should have a competent person instruct them in its use. This person should be satisfied that they can then use the appliance without danger to themselves or their surroundings.


1.Do not spray aerosols in the vicinity of this appliance while it is in operation.

2.Where this appliance is installed in Marine Craft or in caravans, it shall not be used as a space heater.

3.If the electrical supply cord is damaged it must only be replaced by an authorised person.


Before using your Gas Cooktop, clean it with warm soapy water to remove dust. Check that the electricity is switched on in order for the electronic ignition to work.




Choose the control knob for the burner you want to use. Press down and turn the knob counter clockwise to the High symbol.

All the ignitors will spark until the gas ignites on the selected burner (see Figure 1).


Figure 1



The flame can be adjusted anywhere between the High and Low symbol, do not regulate the flame between High and Off.

Flame Failure is a safety device fitted to some models (listed below). A metal probe behind the burner generates electricity when a flame is present. After 5 seconds the metal probe gets hot enough to hold a valve open and maintain the gas supply. If the flame is blown out then the gas to the burner is cut off.

To operate the Flame Failure you need to hold the burner knob down for 5 seconds after the burner has ignited. Letting go too soon will extinguish the flame.

The Flame Failure models are CG602F/CG602WF/CG602WFC & GC9002 series. If you are unsure if you have a Flame Failure model, you can look at the back of the burners and check there are two probes (spark electrode and flame failure probe), indicating a flame failure model.

1.Check that the power is switched on allowing the electronic ignition to work.

2.Check that the burner rings are placed correctly (see Figure 2).

3.Clean electrode tips with methylated spirits.

4.The wok burner may need a moment on high to stabilise the inner ring of flame.

5.Check if you have a flame failure model and understand it???s operation. (See previous page).

Use warm soapy water for cleaning when the cooktop has cooled. Apply soapy water with a soft sponge or cloth. Soaking stubborn stains under the soapy cloth for a few minutes will help make them easier to remove. Do not use steel soap pads as this may dull the appearance of the appliance over time.

Pan supports are dishwasher safe. The burner parts can be cleaned in hot water; it is important that the holes/slots are kept clear. Do not use abrasive cleaners on any parts of the cooktop.

When replacing the burner skirts after cleaning, turn the skirts until the positioning teeth are placed correctly.

Clean electrodes with a toothbrush and methylated spirits.

The trivets above the wok burner are different from the other burners. Note the raised area for the wok on the pan support (see Figure 2).


Abrasive cleaners may damage the stainless steel and the knobs.

After cleaning, wipe dry with a clean cloth or a paper towel to ensure the surface is thoroughly dry. For extra shine, use a stainless steel polish such as 3M Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish or Steel Magic Cleaner.



To get the best out of your Gas Cooktop follow these simple suggestions.

Do not use an asbestos mat or decorative covers between the flame and the saucepan as this may cause serious damage to your Cooktop.


Never use plastic or aluminium foil dishes on the burners.


Match the bottom of your saucepans with the cooking zone and see that it is stable. This will give you the most efficient cooking.


Do not let large saucepans or frying pans overlap the countertop as this can deflect heat onto your countertop and damage the surface.

Hold the handle of the saucepan to prevent movement of cookware when stirring.

Saucepans should have thick flat bottoms. Food in a saucepan with an uneven base will take longer to cook.

Heavy saucepans may bend the trivet or deflect the flame.


When using a Wok only use the circular Wok stand supplied with your Gas Cooktop (see Figure 3).


The coffee pot support allows you to place small items over the burners (see Figure 3).

Q.How do I clean the pan supports and burners?

A.These are able to be washed in the dishwasher or in warm soapy water. For further cleaning information see page 4.

Q.Why doesn???t my cooktop light?

A.Check the gas igniters are not dirty, these can easily be cleaned with a toothbrush and methylated spirits. For further information see page 4 or

-Check that you know how the flame failure device works (refer to page 3).

-Check that the power is switched on allowing the electronic ignition to work.

-Check that the burner rings are placed correctly.

-Clean the gas igniters with a toothbrush and methylated spirits.

If the burner has not ignited within 15 seconds, turn off the knob and wait at least 1minute before attempted further ignition of the burner.

In the event of the burner flames being accidently extinguished, turn off the burner control and do not attempt to re-ignite the burner for at least 1 minute.

Q.All the burners spark at once when I go to light one, is this OK?

A.Yes, they are designed to do this.

Q.My burner flames are yellow/slow to start, is something wrong?

A.Yes, there are a number of factors that could be causing this:

1.If you are using bottled gas this may indicate that you are getting near the end of the bottle.

2.The gas pressure may not be at the correct level, check with your service person/installer.

3.Your cooktop may not be suited to the gas you are using, check with your service person/installer.

Q.What size pots shall I use?

A.Generally larger pots are more energy efficient, try to match the bottom of your saucepans with the cooking zone and see that it is stable. This will give you the most efficient cooking. Do not let large saucepans or frying pans overlap the bench as this can deflect heat onto your benchtop and damage the surface.

Q.Do I need special pans for a gas cooktop?

A.Regular pans are fine. We recommend flat bottom pans for efficient even heat. Food in an uneven bottomed pan will take longer to cook. Heavy saucepans may bend the pan supports or deflect flames.

Q.One of my burners has an uneven flame, what can I do?

A.Check the burner bits are assembled correctly.
