The installation power supply of the integrated stove is left behind the cabinet next to it or the socket is installed on the side panel of the cabinet next to it.
The air intake pipe and the smoke exhaust pipe are located on the lower side of the side against the wall, which is convenient for the intake air to diffuse, and the convenience of disassembly of the air pipe when maintenance is needed.
There should be no gap between the back of the integrated stove and the wall.
At the same time, the countertops on both sides should be connected to prevent things from falling under the cabinet through the gap in the back.
The installation and design of the range hood should avoid the appearance of the socket and the power cord to achieve overall beauty, and indicate the installation height of the range hood on the drawing.
During the installation process, attention must be paid to the level of the machine body to ensure reliable and safe grounding. The grounding point should be away from flammable and explosive materials.
The exhaust gas should not be discharged into the flue used for exhausting the fumes of combustion gas or other fuels.

The lamps and torsion springs have been inserted into the holes, and the outer ring of the ceiling lamp is pressed to adjust to the proper position.
When installing the embedded integrated stove, pay attention to the location of water, electricity, gas pipelines, and related plugs, sockets, valves, and so on. In general, the position of the socket and the valve must be arranged to the side of the electrical appliance.
If it is located behind, the electrical appliance cannot be safely seated due to insufficient depth.
The integrated stove must be installed with flameout protection devices, beware of the situation where the wind blows out the fire or the food overflows and the fire is extinguished.
Built-in gas stove

There must be more than 40cm of free space at the bottom of the cooker and more than 100cm of free space at the top.
It is recommended that the width of the countertop should be more than 55cm, and shutter vents must be left in front of the cabinet.
The built-in disinfection cabinet
It should be stably installed in a place that is convenient and stable for operation, maintenance, and should maintain a safe distance of more than 15cm from gas appliances and high-temperature open flames.
When embedded in the cabinet and combined with the cabinet, an air inlet communicating with the disinfection cabinet should be provided at a suitable place in the cabinet installation place to ensure good air supply. Confirm that the power outlet is effectively grounded.
Kitchen appliances cleaning and maintenance

The surface of the gas stove can be treated with a neutral detergent such as soap powder; the nozzle clogging affects the fire, you can use a thin wire brush to remove the carbides, and use a brush to remove the dirt.
Choosing a built-in stove not only makes the kitchen more beautiful and saves space, but also prevents stains from entering the lower part of the stove, making it easy to clean.
Do not turn off the cooker hood immediately after using it. You can clean the oil on the surface while the oil and gas are still hot.
It can spray the cleaning agent into the range hood. After a period of time, the range hood switch is turned on, and the centrifugal force of the range hood itself is used to remove the oil pollution. The oil net-type range hood needs to be removed and cleaned frequently.
The cleaning tableware must be dried before entering the cabinet, to prevent water droplets on the surface of the tableware from entering the disinfection cabinet, to make the disinfection cabinet rust, and reduce the life of the disinfection cabinet.
The surface and interior of the disinfection cabinet should be wiped with a clean cloth and neutral detergent frequently.
When stubborn stains are encountered, you can use a damp cloth with neutral detergent on the surface of the stain and wipe it after a period of time.
