Thanks to Owner-Manuals.com! This manual was exactly what I needed. As Amana was purchased by Maytag and later by Whirlpool, there was no way to receive it from their websites. I was lucky to find this resource.
Great to be able to set channels again, on an old but stoll fine working TV

Important safety requirements
This hob must be installed in accordance with the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations (Current Edition) and the IEE Wiring Regulations (Current Edition). Detailed recommendations are contained in the following British Standards Codes Of Practice: B.S. 6172/ B.S. 5440, Part 2 and B.S. 6891 Current Editions. The hob should not be installed in a bed sitting room with a volume of less than 20 m3. If it is installed in a room of volume less than 5 m3 an air vent of effective area of 110 cm2 is required. If it is installed in a room of volume between 5 m3 and 10 m an air vent of effective area of 50 cm is required, while if the volume exceeds 11 m3 no air vent is required. However, if the room has a door which opens directly to the outside no air vent is required even if the volume is between 5 m3 and 11 m3. If there are other fuel burning appliances in the same room, B.S. 5440 Part 2 Current Edition, should be consulted to determine the requisite air vent requirements.
FITTING THE GAS HOB WITHOUT A COOKER HOOD ABOVE 600 mm

The hob may be located in a kitchen, a kitchen/diner or bed sitting room, but not in a bathroom, shower room or garage. Before making the cut out in the worktop ensure that the edges of the hob that are to be near either a side or rear wall have a minimum distance of 55 mm. between the edge of the hob and the wall. The minimum distance combustible material can be fitted above the hob is 400 mm. If it is fitted below 400 mm. a space of 50 mm. must be allowed from the edges of the hob. The minimum distance combustible material can be fitted directly above the hob is 700 mm. A minimum distance of 100 mm. must be left between the side edges of the hob and any adjacent cabinets or walls.
FITTING THE GAS HOB WITH A COOKER HOOD ABOVE

IMPORTANT This hob must be installed by qualified personnel to the relevant British Standards. Any gas installation must be carried out by a registered CORGI installer. The manufacturer will not accept liability, should the above instructions or any of the other safety instructions incorporated in this book be ignored. WHEN THE HOB IS FIRST INSTALLED
Once the hob has been installed, it is important to remove any protective materials, which were put on in the factory. On the end of the shaft, which includes the GJ 1/2" threaded elbow, adjustment is fixed so that the washer is fitted between the components as shown in the diagram. Screw the parts together without using excessive force.
Connection to the gas supply should be with either rigid or semi-rigid pipe, i.e. steel or copper. The connection should be suitable for connecting to RC 1/2 (1/2 BSP male thread). When the final connection has been made, it is essential that a thorough leak test is carried out on the hob and installation. Ensure that the main connection pipe does not exert any strain on the hob. It is important to install the elbow correctly, with the shoulder on the end of the thread, fitted to the hob connecting pipe. Failure to ensure the correct assembly will cause leakage of gas.
