4 Safety and warnings


Your oven has been carefully designed to operate safely during normal cooking procedures. Please keep the following safety instructions in mind when you are using it:


Electrical Shock Hazard

Turn the oven off at the wall before replacing the oven lamp.

Failure to follow this advice may result in death or electrical shock.


Fire Hazard

Do not place aluminium foil, dishes, trays, water or ice on the oven floor during cooking, as doing so will irreversibly damage the enamel; lining the oven with aluminium foil may even cause fire.

Never use your appliance for warming or heating the room. Persons could be burned or injured or a fire could start.

Storage in or on appliance: flammable materials should not be stored in an oven or near its surface.

Failure to follow this advice may result in overheating, burning, and injury.


Hot Surface Hazard

Accessible parts may become hot when in use. To avoid burns and scalds, keep children away.

Use oven mitts or other protection when handling hot surfaces such as oven shelves or dishes.

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

Do not touch heating elements or interior surfaces of the oven. Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in colour. Interior surfaces of an oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of the oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the appliance may become hot enough to cause burns - among these surfaces are the oven vent, the surface near the oven vent, and

the oven door.

Failure to follow this advice could result in burns and scalds.


Cut Hazard

Take care - some edges are sharp.

Failure to use caution could result in injury or cuts.

Safety and warnings 5

Important safety instructions

To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to persons, or damage when using the oven, follow the important safety instructions listed below:

Read all the instructions before using the oven. Use the oven only for its intended purpose as described in these instructions.

Proper installation: be sure your appliance is properly installed and earthed by a qualified technician.

Isolating switch: make sure this oven is connected to a circuit which incorporates an isolating switch providing full disconnection from the power supply.

Household appliances are not intended to be played with by children.

Do not leave children alone. Children should not be left alone or unattended in the area where the appliance is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the appliance. Children or persons with a disability which limits their ability to use the appliance, should have a responsible person to instruct them in its use. The instructor should be satisfied that they can use the appliance without danger to themselves or their surroundings.

Do not place heavy objects on the oven door.

Wear proper apparel. Do not wear loose fitting or hanging garments when using the appliance. They could ignite or melt if they touch an element or hot surface and you could be burned. User servicing: do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician. Do not use water on grease fires. Smother the fire or flame or use a dry chemical or foam type extinguisher.

Use only dry oven mitts or potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces could result in burns from steam. Do not let potholders touch hot areas or heating elements. Do not use a towel or a bulky cloth for a potholder. It could catch fire.

Do not heat unopened food containers. They can build up pressure that may cause the container to burst and result in injury.

Safe food handling: leave food in the oven for as short a time as possible before and after cooking. This is to avoid contamination by organisms which may cause food poisoning. Take particular care during warm weather.

Always keep oven vents unobstructed.

Do not operate your appliance by means of an external timer or separate remote-control system.

6 Safety and warnings

Important safety instructions

Caution. Hot air can blow from the vent at the top of the oven as part of the oven’s cooling system.

Placement of oven shelves: always position shelves in the desired location while the oven is cool (before preheating). If a shelf must be removed while the oven is hot, do not let the oven mitts or potholder contact hot heating elements in the oven or the base of the oven.

Do not clean the oven seal or use any oven-cleaning products on it. It is essential for a good seal, which ensures that the oven operates efficiently. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or move it.

Do not use harsh/abrasive cleaners, scourers or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven door glass since they scratch the surface, which may result in the glass shattering.

Do not use a steam cleaner to clean any part of the oven.

Do not store things children might want above the oven. Children could be burned or injured while climbing on the oven to retrieve items.

Do not install or operate the appliance if it is damaged or not working properly. If you receive a damaged product, contact your dealer or installer immediately.

Use only bakeware approved for oven use. Follow the bakeware manufacturer’s instructions.

First use: conditioning the oven

It is important to condition your oven before using it for cooking and baking. Conditioning will burn off any manufacturing residues and ensure that you get the best results right from the start.

1Make sure you have set the clock.

2Fit the Catalytic panels. See ‘Fitting the Catalytic panels’ for instructions.

3 Slide in the shelves and the grill tray. See ‘Using your oven’ for instructions.

4Heat the oven for:

30 minutes at 200 oC using Bake then

15 minutes at 200 oC using Fan Grill

There will be a distinctive smell while you are conditioning the oven.

This is normal, but make sure the kitchen is well ventilated during the conditioning.

5Once cooled, wipe out the oven with a damp cloth and mild detergent, and dry thoroughly.

Fitting the side racks and catalytic panels

1Remove all shelves and trays.

2For easier access to the fixing screws, you may remove the oven door first. See ‘Removing and refitting the oven door.’

3Using a small coin or a flat-head screwdriver, loosen and remove the front fixing screw (the back lock stud cannot be removed), as shown.

4Remove the side rack.

5Fit the catalytic panel. When fitting the side catalytic panels, make sure that:

-you slide the panel in, with the cutout in the panel fitting behind the back lock stud.

-the arrows are pointing upwards

-the panel with the round hole is on the right oven wall.

6Refit the side racks.

-Slide the side rack gently so it engages with the rear lock stud.

-Make sure that they are the right way up, as in the illustrations, and then insert and tighten the front fixing screw.

7If not already fitted, fit the telescopic sliding shelf supports. See “Care and cleaning’ for instructions.
