/ Warnings

Cooking Safety

Once the unit has been installed as outlined in the Installation Instructions, it is important that the fresh air supply is not obstructed. The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat and moisture in the room in which it is installed.

Ensure that the kitchen is well-ventilated. Keep natural venting holes open or install a mechanical ventilation device. Prolonged or intensive use of the appliance may call for additional (such as opening a window) or more e ective ventilation (such as increasing the level of a mechanical ventilation if present).

NEVER use aluminum foil to cover oven racks or oven bottom. This could result in risk of electric shock, fi re, or damage to the appliance. Use foil only as directed in this guide.

To eliminate the hazard of reaching over hot surface burners, cabinet storage should not be provided directly above a unit. Temperatures may be unsafe for some items, such as volatile liquids, cleaners or aerosol sprays.

ALWAYS place a pan on a surface burner before turning it on. Be sure you know which knob controls which surface burner. Make sure the correct burner is turned on and that the burner has ignited. When cooking is completed, turn burner o before removing pan to prevent exposure to burner fl ame.

ALWAYS adjust surface burner fl ame so that it does not extend beyond the bottom edge of the pan. An excessive fl ame is hazardous, wastes energy and may damage the appliance, pan or cabinets above the appliance. This is based on safety considerations.

NEVER leave a surface cooking operation unattended especially when using a high heat setting or when deep fat frying. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers may ignite. Clean up greasy spills as soon as possible. DO NOT use high heat for extended cooking operations.

DO NOT heat unopened food containers, build up of pressure may cause the container to explode and result in injury.

ALWAYS let quantities of hot fat used for deep fat frying cool before attempting to move or handle.

NEVER wear garments made of fl ammable material or loose fi tting or long-sleeved apparel while cooking. Clothing may ignite or catch utensil handles. DO NOT drape towels or materials on oven door handles. These items could ignite and cause burns.

ALWAYS place oven racks in the desired posi-

tions while oven is cool. Slide oven rack out to add or remove food, using dry, sturdy pothol-

ALWAYS avoid reaching into the oven to add or remove food. If a rack must be moved while hot, use a dry pot-holder.

ALWAYS turn the oven o at the end of cooking.

Use care when opening the oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before moving or replacing food.

DO NOT cook directly on the oven bottom. This could result in damage to your appliance.

Always use the oven racks when cooking in the oven.ders.

Do not connect any appliances to the plugs above or near to the induction cooktop; connection cable insulation can melt if in contact with heat, and this may result in an injury and a property damage.

Recommended Utensils

Use pans with fl at bottoms and handles that are easily grasped and stay cool. Avoid using unstable, warped, easily tipped or loose-han- dled pans. Also avoid using pans, especially small pans, with heavy handles as they could be unstable and easily tip. Pans that are heavy to move when fi lled with food may also be hazardous.

Be sure utensil is large enough to properly contain food and avoid boilovers. Pan size is particularly important in deep fat frying. Be sure pan will accommodate the volume of food that is to be added as well as the bubble action of fat.

To minimize burns, ignition of fl ammable materials and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, DO NOT extend handles over adjacent surface burners. ALWAYS turn pan handles toward the side or back of the appliance, not out into the room where they are easily hit or reached by small children.

NEVER let a pan boil dry as this could damage the utensil and the appliance.

Follow the manufacturer’s directions when using oven cooking bags.

Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic or glazed utensils are suitable for rangetop surface or oven usage without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Follow manufacturer’s instructions when using glass.


/ Warnings

Induction Cooking Surfaces

Surface areas on or adjacent to the unit may be hot enough to cause burns. Do not touch the cooking area as long as the light indicating residual heat on the glass-ceramic cooktop area, is “on”; this indicates that the temperature in the relative area is still high.

DO NOTCOOK ON BROKEN COOKING SURFACE – If cooking surface should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooking surface and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualifi ed technician immediately.

Keep a close eye on children because they are unlikely to see the residual heat warning lights. The cooking zones are still very hot for some time after use, even if they are switched o . Make sure that children never touch them.

NEVER use aluminum foil to to hold the food while cooking on a glass-ceramic cooktop area.

Never place pan with bottoms which are not perfectly fl at and smooth on the cooktop area.

If you drop a heavy pot on your cooktop area it will not break. On the contrary, if a hard object, suchasthesaltshakerorthespicebottlestrikes the edge or the corner of the cooktop area, the cooktop area may break.

Never use the glass-ceramic cooktop area as support surface.

Only use cleaning products made specifi cally for ceramic glass cooking surfaces.

Metal items such as cutlery or lids must never be placed on the surface of the cooktop area since they may become hot.

Radio Interference - Induction Ranges

This unit generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this unit does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the unit o and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna

Increase the distance between the unit and receiver

Connect the unit into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

Oven Heating Elements

NEVER touch oven bake and broil burner areas or interior surfaces of oven.

Bake and broil burners may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas near burners and interior surfaces of an oven may become hot enough to cause burns.

During and after use, DO NOT touch or let clothing or other fl ammable materials contact heating elements, areas near elements, or interior surfaces of oven until they have had suf- fi cient time to cool. Other surfaces of the oven may become hot enough to cause burns, such as the oven vent opening, the surface near the vent opening, and the oven door window.

Cleaning Safety

Turn o all controls and wait for appliance parts to cool before touching or cleaning them. DO NOT touch the burner grates or surrounding areas until they have had su cient time to cool.

Clean the range with caution. Avoid steam burns; DO NOT use a wet sponge or cloth to clean the range while it is hot. Some cleaners produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface. Follow directions provided by the cleaner manufacturer.

DO NOT clean, rub, damage, move or remove the door gasket. It is essential for a good seal during baking. If the gasket becomes worn or excessively soiled with food particles, replace gasket to assure a tight seal.

Power failure warning

Due to safety considerations and the possibility of personal injury in attempting to light and extinguish the oven burners, the grill and the oven burner should not be used during a power failure. The oven control knob should always remain in the “OFF” position during a power failure.

NEVER use appliance as a space heater to heat or warm a room to prevent potential hazard to the user and damage to the appliance. Also, DO NOT use the rangetop or oven as a storage area for food or cooking utensils.


/ Warnings

Electrical shock hazard

Make sure all controls are OFF and oven is COOL before cleaning. Failure to do so can result in burns or electrical shock.

DO NOT touch a hot oven light bulb with a damp cloth as the bulb could break. Should the bulb break, disconnect power to the appliance before removing bulb to avoid electrical shock.

NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack with materials such as aluminum foil.Doing so blocks air fl ow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may also trap heat, causing a fi re hazard.

Burn hazard

The oven door, especially the glass, can get hot.

DO NOT touch the oven door glass!

Warning-tipping hazard

Children and adults can tip over the range if it has not been secured.This may lead to fatal injuries.

To reduce the risk of the appliance tipping, it must be secured and connected using the anti-tip device according to the installation instructions. Re-engage the anti-tip device if the range is moved.

Do not operate the range without the anti-tipdevi- ce in place and engaged. Do not use the range if the anti-tip device has not been properly installed and engaged. See installation instructions for details.

Failure to observe the information contained in the installation instructions can lead to serious or fatal injuries for children and adults.

/ Induction cooktop



Underneath each cooking zone there is a coil called an inductor. The inductor generates a variable magnetic fi eld using electric power. When a pan is placed inside this magnetic fi eld, the highfrequency current radiates directly on the bottom of the pan and produce the heat needed to cook.

After use the display can show the symbol ‘H’ if there is residual heat. The symbol ‘H’go out when the temperature drops to below about 140°F/60° C.


The symbol above each knob indicates which element that knob controls.

The operation power is regulated through the knob and is shown by a display on the cooktop surface.

To turn on the heating zone, press in the control knob (Fig.14A-14B) and turn it clockwise. Settings range from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 9.


USING SPECIAL FUNCTIONS A - Heating Accelerator mode.

The Heating Accelerator mode allows each zone to be operated at peak power for a time proportio-

Turn the knob anti-clockwise, select setting “A” and then release. The letter “A” will appear on the display on the cooktop area

After 3 seconds, you may select the heating setting of your choice. Once a setting betweennal to the heating power selected.

1 and 9 has been selected, “A” and the chosen setting will fl ashin sequence on the display.

While the heating accelerator is in operation, the heating level can be increased at any time. The “full power” time will be modifi ed accordingly. If the power is reduced by turning the knob anticlockwi-

se, option “A” is automatically deactivated.

P - Power Mode.

The power mode allows the user to operate each heating zone continuously at the maximum power for a time of no more than 10 minutes. This mode can be used to bring a large amount of water to the boil in a hurry, or to turn up the heat under

Turn the knob clockwise and set heating level to 9, then use the knob to set the “P” position and release it.

The symbol “P” will appear on the corresponding zone display.

After 10 minutes, the power will be reduced automatically to 9 and the “P” will disappear.meat.

The power mode can be turned o at any time by reducing the heating level. If a pan is removed from the cooking zone while the power function is on, the function is switched o .

- Holding Mode.

The holding mode keeps the temperature of the bottoms of pans at about 160°F/70°C .This allows foods to be heated gently and kept hot with optimal energy consumption. Holding mode can be kept in operation for up to 2 hours.

The holding mode is and is indicated by the relevant symbol on the cooking zones.

∏ - Bridge Mode.

The bridge mode allows to use the 2 right-side cooking zones as a single cooking zone. Power Mode is not allowed when the zones are operated

Rotate both knobs, rear right and front right, at the same time in the P position and keep the knobs in that position.

The ∏ symbol will blink in the display, then return to the power level.

To control the bridge power level, use the knob 4 (front right zone). If you turn knob 3 (rear right

zone) the display shows a horizontal segment and the bridge function Bridge mode.


/ Induction cooktop

L - Child lock function.

When not in use, the cooktop area can be “locked out” to prevent children from accidentally switching it on.

With the cooking zones o , turn the knobs of zones 1 and 2 to the left simultaneously until ‘’L’’ appear on the power display and then release the knobs.

To deactivate it, repeat the same procedure: the cooking zone displays will stop displaying the‘’L’’,indicatingthatthecookingzoneLOCK has been deactivated.

- Pan detection.

Each cooking zone is equipped with a “pan detection” device, which ensures that cooking cannot start unless a suitable pan is present

on the cooking zone and properly positioned.

If the user attempts to switch on the cooking zone with the pan not positioned properly or with a pan which is not of suitable material, thesymbol will appear a few seconds after the zone is switched on to warn the user that an error has been made.

H - Residual heat.

Each cooking zone is equipped with a device which warns of residual heat. After any cooking zone is switched o , a fl ashing ‘H’ may appear on the display, warning that the cooking zone is stil very hot.

Cooking can be restarted while the ‘H’ is fl ashing.


Induction with most pans of suitable material. The bottom of the pan must be iron or steel/iron to generate the magnetic fi eld necessary for the heating process. Pots made of glass, porcelain, ceramic are not suitable. Pots made with steel, aluminium or copper without magnetic bottom will also not work.

Most suitable pans are marked for use with induction. To check whether a pan is suitable, simply place a magnet close to its bottom: if the magnet sicks to the bottom of the pan, the pan is suitable for induction cooking. If you don’t have a magnet handy, place a small of water in the pan, place the pan on any cooking zone and switch it on. If the symbol appears on the display, the pan is not suitable.

Use only vessels specially designed for induction cooking, with thick, completely fl at bottom. If these are not available, the pans used must not have a round (concave or convex) bottom.



The pans must have certain minimum diameter to ensure optimal operation. Pans larger than the cooking zones can also be used: make sure that the bottom of the pan does not touch other cooking zones and that it is always centered over the inductor.

Always place your pan in such a way that its center is aligned with the centre of the element.

Pick-up your cookware when moving them around. Do not slide them and avoid excessive rubbing of the top, as this may leave scratches on the glass surface.

Never leave an empty pot/pan on an induction heating element, even when the element is turned OFF.

Only use maximum power for boiling and frying.

Avoid preheating your non-stick pans (e.g. with tefl on coating) at maximum heat.

Avoid storing solid and heavy items in the cabinets above your cooktop.They may accidentally be dropped and damage the glass top.

Place extra care to avoid spilling sugar or sweet mixtures onto the cooktop area during cooking, and avoid materials or substances which might melt (plastic or aluminium foil) on it. If this should occur, turn the heating o immediately and clean with the scraper supplied while the cooking zone is still warm. If the ceramic cooktop area is not cleaned immediately, residue may form which may not be removed once the cooktop area has cooled.


/ Electric convection oven



When using the oven for the fi rst time it should be operated for 15-30 minutes at a temperature of about 500°F/260°C without cooking anything inside in order to eliminate any moisture and odours from the internal insulation.


Shelves are mounted on the appropriate guides situated on the sides of the oven compartment. Insert the shelf between top and bottom guide in any of the 7 positions indicated.


Automatic operation of the cooling fan

The range cooker is equipped with a thermostatically controlled cooling fan designed to prevent the control panel and knobs from overheating. The cooling fan will operate when the oven temperature rises. It will turn o when the temperature decreases.

NOTE: It is normal for the cooling process to push heated air out into the room when the oven is on.


Most cooking times in recipes are intended for a preheated oven and require that the oven already be at the set temperature before placing food in the oven. Preheating time depends on the temperature setting and the number of racks in the oven.



2.Select the oven function with the dedicated function knob. The light in the cavity will turn on.

3.Set the desired temperature with the dedicated selector knob.

This appliance is equipped with 1 indicator light on the front panel. Light on indicates that the oven heating element/s are activated.

Heat from the broil element only

The BROIL setting creates intense heat from the top of the cavity. The broil mode is e ective when

Beef steaks, ground meat patties, and lamb chops 1 inch or less: level 6.

Meat 1 inches or more thick, fi sh, poultry, pork chops, ham steaks 1 inch or more: level 5.

Browning food: level 6 (no longer than 15mins)food is placed on upper racks.

Convection broil

Heat from broil element and air flow convection with fan.

Use this setting for browning and cooking evenly food on all sides, including bottom. Also recommended for food that is too delicate to turn over such as fi sh. The fan circulates hot air around the food helping to cook it all the way through.The degree of browning on each side might be di erent.

sausages and chicken portions: level 5 or 6

foods with high water content such as bacon and chops: level 5 or 6 (door closed 400°F )The conv broil mode must be used on one rack,

Convection bake

Heat from upper and lower bake element and air flow convection with fan.

Use this setting to bake and roast di erent foods at the same time with no taste transfer. The fan circulates the hot air around the oven for uniform cooking of larger quantities of food. Use for roasting vegetables, meat and poultry, or baked fi sh. This function is the best one for cooking frozen products and breaded/battered chicken or fi sh. It may be used for cakes, cookies, biscuits and other foods on multiple racks.

Use the same rack position as BAKE. When using 2 racks, use level 3 and 5.


Heat from the convection element and airflow convection with fan.

Use this mode for most recipes being careful at calibrating the time –less time is usually required to reach the desired result when using convection. The temperature is kept uniform throughout the oven, which is particularly suitable for baking on several levels or for batch cooking.

Single rack: use the same rack position as bake

2 racks: use level 3 and 5

3 racks : use level 2 ,4, 6


Heat from lower bake element and circular element and airflow convection with fan.

Use for cooking pizza, pastry or fl at breads to get a perfectly cooked base.

Use level 3 or level 2 to ensure the bottom of the crust is done.



Use this function to light the oven when the oven is o (for example to clean the oven). Turn the function knob to ‘bake’. DO NOT turn on Oven Temperature Control Knob.
