Towngas will provide on-site checking service. For the repair of parts, customers would need to contact the appropriate dealer for the repair service.
Q13.Why is the flame power in a built-in hob relatively smaller than that in a Table Top Cooker?
Because a Table Top Cooker is placed on top of a kitchen table top instead of being installed inside the table top. It will be exposed to larger amount of air which helps combustion. Therefore, it will have a relatively stronger power of flame.
Q14.If I wish to replace the existing built-in hob, can I just measure the dimension of the built-in hob surface?
No. Please also pay attention to the dimension of the cut-out hole for installing the built-in hob. Otherwise, alteration may be required.
