Whilst this is a photo copy, and some of the pages are a little askew, it was all readable and intact. A real bonus finding an old manual for a classic piece of kit that no other site had.
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.

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 m3 an air vent of effective area of 50 cm2 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
FITTING THE GAS HOB WITH A COOKER HOOD ABOVE
The hob may be located in a kitchen, a kitchen/diner or bed sitting room, but not in a bathroom, shower room or garage. A minimum distance of 20 mm. must be left between the rear edge of the hob and the rear wall. The minimum distance combustible material can be fitted above the hob is 400 mm. 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. Please note that all the distances quoted in the diagramm are intended from the hob top.
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.
