Phillips screwdriver (Bar length should be about 40cm or longer)Picture 1 Adjusting plate Adjusting plate is designed to fit completely to the heating stage of each drawer. Replace the hand-held chamber to the plate when you need to adjust port position. Port position changes by the production date, and rectangle piece with 3 drilled holes needs to be adjusted according to the units port position. For the units which serial number is 10 or less, fix the rectangle piece to the plate using the middle 2 screw threads. For the units which serial number is 11 or greater, fix the rectangle piece to the plate using the screw thread on each side.Serial Number: 1 to 10Serial Number: 11 and greater
2. Gas ports are fixed with phillips head screws at each side. Before starting the adjustment, loosen these screws a few revolutions counterclockwise and let the gas ports move up and down smoothly. Do not loosen too much or remove these screws.Loosen these screws by 2 or 3 revolutions counterclockwise.While the adjusting plate is placed on the drawer, slowly close the drawer until you can compare the port position and drilled hole position difference. 3. Adjust the port position using the phillips screwdriver and when its position completely gets into line, close the drawer all the way back to its close position and turn the drawer knob to the horizontal position to keep it closed.While the drawer is closed, tighten the 2 screws that hold gas port completely. After this procedure try opening and closing the drawer several times without removing the adjusting plate and confirm any port is not getting stuck at any of the drilled hole.
