Safety and warnings 3

Important safety instructions

WARNING: Liquids and other foods must not be heated in sealed containers, as they may explode.

Only use utensils suitable for usage in microwave ovens.

When heating food items in plastic or paper containers, monitor the microwave’s contents due to the risk of combustion.

If smoke appears, stop the oven or disconnect it from the power supply and leave the door closed to stifle any flames present.

Heating beverages in the microwave oven can cause the sudden and/or delayed splattering of boiling liquid, so care must be taken when handling their containers.

The contents of baby bottles and baby food jars must be stirred or rearranged and the temperature must be checked before consumption, so as to prevent burns.

It is not recomended to heat eggs in their shells or whole hardboiled eggs in a microwave oven, as they may explode, even after cooking has ended.

4 HeaderSafety and warnings

Important safety instructions

Your appliance is solely intended for domestic use for cooking, reheating and defrosting food. The manufacturer does not accept any liability in the event of inappropriate use.

To avoid damaging your appliance, never operate it while empty or without the turntable.

Do not interfere with the openings on the lock on the front of the appliance; this could cause damage to your appliance that would require a service callout.

The seal and frame of the door must be regularly examined to ensure that they have not become damaged. If damaged the oven should not be used until repaired by an authorised person.

In microwave mode, it is not recommended to use metallic cookware, forks, spoons, knives or metal staples or fasteners for defrosting bags.

Never heat a baby bottle with the teat on, as it may explode.

Always use oven gloves to remove dishes from the oven. Some dishes absorb the heat from food and are therefore very hot.

Safety and warningsHeader 5

Important safety instructions

When heating small quantities (a sausage, a croissant, etc.) place a glass of water next to the food.

Excessive cooking times may dry out food and burn it. To prevent this occurring, never use the same times recommended for cooking in a conventional oven.

Do not use abrasive cleaning materials or hard metal scrapers on the glass oven door, as this could scratch the surface and cause the glass to shatter.

6 Installation instructions

Important!

The accessible parts of the appliance may become hot during use. Be careful not to touch the heating elements located inside the oven.

It is advisable to keep small children away from the appliance.

Important!

If the appliance is being used in combination mode, it is recommended that children only use the oven under adult supervision due to the temperatures generated.

Protecting the environment

This appliance’s packaging materials are recyclable. Please recycle them and help protect the environment by depositing them in municipal containers provided for this purpose.

Europe only:

Your appliance also contains various recyclable materials. It is therefore marked with this logo to indicate that used appliances must not be mixed with other waste. The appliance recycling organised by your manufacturer will therefore be conducted in optimum conditions, in accordance with European directive 2002/96/ EC on electrical and electronic equipment waste. Consult your local authority or your retailer to locate your nearest used appliance drop-offpoints. Thank you for your help in protecting the environment.

How your oven works

The microwaves used for cooking are electromagnetic waves. They are commonly found in our environment in the form of radio waves, light and infrared rays.

Their frequency is in the 2450 MHz range.

Their behaviour:

They are reflected by metals.

They travel through all other materials.

They are absorbed by water, fat and sugar molecules.

When food is exposed to microwaves its molecules begin moving rapidly, causing it to heat up.

The penetration depth of waves into the food is approximately 2.5 cm; if the food is thicker, the centre of the food will be cooked by conduction, as in conventional cooking.

Note that microwaves cause a simple thermal phenomenon within food and are not harmful to health.

Please verify electrical specifications by checking the appliance rating label.

Electrical connection

Ensure that:

The electrical installation has sufficient voltage.

The electrical wires are in good condition.

The diameter of the wires complies with the installation requirements.

Your electrical installation is equipped with 16-amperethermal-sensitiveprotection.

The oven is connected to a single phase 220-240V 50 Hz supply using a 1.5 mm2 cable and connected to earth. The supply must be protected by a suitably rated circuit breaker in accordance with the installation regulations.

A suitable isolating switch providing full disconnection from the mains power supply is incorporated in the permanent wiring, mounted and positioned to comply with the local wiring rules and regulations. The isolating switch must be of an approved type and provide a 3 mm air gap contact separation in all poles (or in all active [phase] conductors if the local wiring rules allow for this variation of the requirements)

The isolating switch will be easily accessible to the customer with the oven installed.

If in doubt, consult your electrician.

Electrical connections should be completed before the appliance is placed in the wall unit.

The appliance must be recess-fittedcorrectly to ensure electrical safety. During recess fitting and maintenance operations, the appliance must be disconnected from the power supply; fuses must be cut off or removed.

If the power cable is damaged, it should be replaced by the manufacturer, its after-salesservice or a similarly qualified person so as to prevent a hazard.

Installation alignment

The diagrams below explain how to achieve the correct and proper alignment of visual elements of the product should it be necessary. This also allows you to align visual elements across products if this product is installed alongside other companian products.

Inspect the product to check if the gaps are correct

There should be a minimum 5 mm gap at the base of the product (ie from the bottom of the door glass to the shelf). The product can be raised or lowered to achieve this gap by adjusting the two small feet at the front of the product with a 7 mm spanner.

+

-

+ -

5 mm

There should be a 5 mm gap between the top of the door glass and the bottom of the control panel. The control panel can be raised or lowered to achieve this gap by first loosening the two screws on either side of the product with a tamper proof torx 20 Screwdriver. Once the control panel is adjusted to suit, ensure the screws are fully tightened again and the panel does not move. This adjustment also allows you to visually align the product incase the cabinetry is not square.

Important!

If adjusting the product height or the control panel (or both), ensure the overall product height still allows the product to be installed into the preconfined cabinetry space.

Do not lower the control panel so much that it touches or interferes with the door.

Tips: do not use a metal mould.

Begin cooking the quiche as soon as the filling has been poured into the pastry case.

Never let the pastry soak or it will not cook properly.

24 Using your appliance

Defrosting

Using your microwave oven to defrost frozen vegetables lets you save a lot of time. To defrost food, use the DEFROST function, set to a power level of 200W.

Note: small cuts of meat or fish can be cooked immediately after defrosting. Larger cuts, such as meat joints or whole fish will still be slightly frozen at the end of the defrost programme.

We recommend that you let them sit for at least as long a time as they spent in the defrost programme, so that they reach an even temperature.

Foods covered with ice crystals will take longer to defrost. In this case, you can increase the defrost time.

Recommendations:

The defrost time depends on the type of appliance. It also depends on the shape, size, initial temperature and quality of the food.

In most cases, food should be removed from its packaging. Remember to remove any metal staples from packaging.

Halfway through the defrost time, the pieces should be turned over, stirred and then separated if they were frozen together.

If you defrost large pieces of meat or fish that prevent the rotation of the turntable, use the Stop Turntable function. If that case, remember to stir food regularly.

Defrost meat and fish by placing it on an upside-downsaucer placed on top of a plate. This will allow juices to flow out. If they remain in contact with the food, it will overheat.

Never refreeze food, unless it has been cooked.

Length of defrost programmes:

The times for defrosting programmes are based on food frozen at -18°C.This gives you an indication of the required defrosting time, but the actual time can vary, depending on the thickness, shape, size and packaging of the food.

Choosing a programme:

The following automatic defrosting programmes are available:

d 1 corresponds to 200W (defrosting power level). Choose d1 if you want to defrost food or quantities not covered by programmes d2, d3 or d4.

Programme the desired defrosting time.

Please refer to the following table for suggested defrosting times. d 2 defrosting meat, poultry, fish and vegetables.

d 3 defrosting bread

d 4 defrosting cooked dishes

weight (d2, d3 and d4), e.g. 700 g.

Confirm by pressing

.

 

The required time is calculated automatically. The programme duration appears in the display and the defrost programme starts.

Note:

The defrost time is automatically calculated based on the weight of the food. It may vary, depending on the initial temperature of the food (times are based on frozen food at -18°C).

For food weighing more than 350 g (except bread), a beep sounds mid way through the automatic defrosting programme, to remind you that it is time to turn the food over, to obtain the best results and “turn” is shown in the display. After turning the food over, close the door and press the button to continue the defrost programme.

With the automatic defrost function, the defrost time cannot be modified.

For foods that do not appear in the food category recommendations, use the 200W MICROWAVE function or d1. Refer to the notes below for the recommended programme times.

Recommendations:

The cooking temperature can be adjusted in increments of 10°C, from 50°C to 250°C.

The cooking time ranges from 0 to 599 minutes (9 h 59 min) . It is preferable to enter a minimum time and then to add time if necessary; keep an eye on the colour of the food.

Always insert the accessories (rack or glass tray) at level 1 or 2. This will ensure better heat distribution and optimum cooking results.

Use cookware designed to withstand high temperatures.

Protect your hands when you remove the dish because it may be very hot.

If you want to defrost food after using the heat circulation function, we recommend that you let your oven cool down for 10 minutes first; this will give you better results.

Cooking on two levels:

To cook two apples tarts at the same time, 1 hour at 200°C. We recommend preparing the first tart in the glass drip tray inserted at level 1 and the second in a tart dish on the shelf inserted at level 3. Change the position of the two dishes half-waythrough cooking.

Care and cleaning 35

It is recommended that you regularly clean your oven and remove any food debris on the inside and outside of the appliance.

Use a damp, soapy sponge. If the appliance is not cleaned regularly, its surface could become damaged, permanently affecting the appliance’s lifespan and possibly causing a safety hazard.

Important!

If the door or door hinge are damaged, the oven should not be used until it has been repaired by an authorised person.

Do not use a steam cleaner.

The use of abrasive products, alcohol or thinner is not recommended, as they may damage the appliance.

In case of odour or encrusted dirt, boil water with lemon juice and vinegar in a cup for two minutes and clean the insides with a small amount of washing-upliquid.

The turntable can be removed to facilitate cleaning. To do so, lift it using the access areas provided. If you remove the turning gear, do not let water enter the the motor shaft hole. Remember to replace the turning gear, wheel guide and turntable.
