BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE

RATING PLATE

This is situated on the lower front frame of the appliance and can be seen upon opening the door. Alternatively the rating plate may also be found on the back or top of some models (where applicable).

The appliance must be protected by a suitably rated fuse or circuit breaker. The rating of the appliance is given on the rating plate.

Do not remove the rating plate from the appliance as this may invalidate the guarantee.

PREPARING TO USE YOUR APPLIANCE

Wipe over the base of the oven(s) with a soft cloth and hot soapy water and wash the furniture before use.

We suggest that you run the oven elements for 10 – 15 minutes at 220°C to burn off any residue from their surfaces.

The procedure should be repeated with the grill for approximately 5 – 10 minutes.

During this period and odour may be emitted, it is therefore advisable to open a window for ventilation.

WHEN FIRST SWITCHING ON

The oven has a 24 hour clock. When the oven is first switched on at the wall the electronic display will automatically show 12.00, and the 'Time' indicator neon ( ) will also flash.

THE COOLING FAN FOR THE CONTROLS

The cooling fan comes on immediately when the grill is switched on and after a short time when the oven is in use. It runs on after the controls are switched off until the appliance has cooled. During the initial period the cooling fan may turn ON and OFF, this is quite normal.

Always allow the cooling fan to cool the appliance down before switching off at the wall prior to carrying out any cleaning or maintenance work.

CONTROL PANEL INDICATOR NEON(S)

The indicator neon will operate when the grill (where applicable) or oven(s) is switched on. The indicator neon will glow. It may turn on and off during use to show that the setting is being maintained. If the neon does not operate as the instructions indicate the controls have been incorrectly set. Return all controls to zero and reset following the instructions for the required setting.

CONDENSATION AND STEAM

When food is heated it produces steam similar to a boiling kettle. The vents allow some of this steam to escape. However, always stand back from the appliance when opening the door(s) to allow any build up of steam or heat to release.

If the steam comes into contact with a cool surface on the outside of the appliance, e.g. a trim, it will condense and produce water droplets. This is quite normal and is not caused by a fault on the appliance. To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe away condensation and also soilage from surfaces.

COOKWARE

Baking trays, dishes etc., should not be placed directly against the grid covering the fan at the back of the oven.

Do not use baking trays larger than 30cm x 35cm (12” x 14”) as they will restrict the circulation of heat and may affect performance.

HELPFUL HINTS WHEN BUYING AND PREPARING FOOD

Care must be taken when handling foods in the home. Always follow the basic rules of food hygiene to prevent bacterial and microbial growth and cross contamination when preparing, reheating, cooking, cooling, defrosting and freezing foods:-

1.Avoid buying chilled or frozen products if you cannot store them straight away. The use of an insulated container when shopping is advisable.

2.When you arrive home, place perishable foods in the refrigerator or freezer immediately. Ensure they are well covered to prevent them drying out and to prevent any possible cross contamination with bacteria from raw to cooked foods.

3.In the kitchen keep work tops, chopping boards and utensils clean with hot soapy water between preparation stages. Ideally, keep one chopping board for raw meat and another for other foods. Keep your dish cloths and tea towels clean.
