INSTALLATION

The hob must be installed according to the instructions supplied.

The hob must be installed by qualified personnel to the relevant British Standards.

Please, ensure that, once the hob is installed, it is easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a breakdown.

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.

Operation

ELECTRIC HOTPLATES

To switch on a hotplate, turn the relevant control knob anticlockwise to the required heat setting.

The control knob is numbered 1 - 3

0- OFF

1- Minimum

3- Maximum.

The hob has four rapid hotplates. The rapid hotplates are indicated by i a red dot, and will heat up more quickly than a normal plate. As the

red dots are painted on the plate, they may deteriorate during use and even disappear completely after a period of time. This will not affect the performance of the hob.

It is important to note that the plate may smoke a little and produce a slightly unpleasant odour when used for the first time. This is quite normal and will disappear after a few minutes.

Suggestions for the correct setting of the plates are given in the following table.

i Hints and Tips

Saucepans for use on solid plates should have several characteristics:

They should be fairly heavy duty

They should fit the heat area exactly, or be slightly larger for efficient use, NEVER smaller.

They should have a flat base to ensure good contact with the plate.

This is particularly important when using pans for high temperature frying or pressure cooking.

As soon as liquid starts boiling, turn down the plate control knob so that it will barely keep the liquid simmering.

You can switch off the plate a short while before you finish cooking, and the final stage will be completed on the accumulated heat. Similarly, stews etc. cooked in well covered saucepans cook at lower temperature which is more economical.

Ensure pans are large enough to avoid liquids being split onto the plates.

Never leave the plates on without a pan on them or with an empty pan on them.

Take care never to lean or reach over a hot electric plate. Always point pan handles inward or over the work surface next to the hob to avoid accidentally knocking over a pan as you pass by.

Take care when frying food in hot oil or fat, as the overheated splashes could easily ignite.

If the control knobs become difficult to turn, please contact your local AEG Service Centre.

Maintenance and Cleaning

Before any maintenance or cleaning can be carried out, you must DISCONNECT the hob from the electricity supply.

The hob is best cleaned whilst it is still warm, as spillage can be removed more easily than if it is left to cool.

The Hob Top

Regularly wipe over the hob top using a soft cloth well wrung out in warm water to which a little wasing up liquid has been added. Avoid the use of the following:

-household detergent and bleaches;

-impregnated pads unsuitable for non-sticksaucepans;

-steel wool pads;

-bath/sink stain removers.

Should the hob top become heavily soiled, it is recommended that a cleaning product such as Hob Brite or Bar Keepers Friend is used.

The Hotplates

Spills onto the actual plate should be removed using warm water and a soft brush, nylon or plastic scourer. To keep the plates looking as new, hotplate conditioner can be purchased from most hardware stores, e.g. "4 Hob" by HomeCare Products (follow the manufacturer's instruction for use).

Alternatively, wipe the plates with a drop of olive oil on a kitchen towel to avoid rust. It is important to note that the plate will smoke a little and produce a slightly unpleasant odour when next used.

In-guaranteecustomers should ensure that the above checks have been made as the engineer will make a charge if the fault is not a mechanical or electrical breakdown.
