The electrical connection must be carried out in conformity to the European regulations in force.

The electrical connection required is a single-phase 220-240 V, 50-60 Hz type connection (check the product's rating plate regarding the correct supply voltage

and frequency).


IT is mandatory to earth the appliance:

If the appliance is directly connected to the mains electricity, an omnipolar switch with contact gap of at least 3 mm - able to withstand the oven's power output - must be installed between the oven and power socket.

The earth wire must by no means be interrupted by the omnipolar switch.

Always ensure that the oven is disconnected from the power supply before effecting maintenance work and/or adjustments.

The oven may be supplied without a plug fitted on the power cord. If this occurs, choose a plug that can withstand the oven's maximum power output. Make sure that the earth wire (yellow/green) is properly connected to the relative plug pin.

Follow the steps below when connecting or replacing the power cable:

Disconnect the appliance or the power supply.

Open the terminal board cover.

Connect the ends of the power cable - remember that the earth wire is identified by the yellow/green jacket. If using a BS 1363-approved 13 A plug, apply a 13 A fuse.

The power cable must be secured by the cable clamp on the terminal board to prevent it from turning and/or detaching. No point of the cable must be exposed to temperatures exceeding 75 °C.

The plug connecting the appliance to the mains electricity must be suitable for the oven's power output. Moreover, the plug must be easily accessible once the oven has been installed. An omnipolar switch with a contact gap of at least 3 mm must be installed in the event of a direct connection to the mains electricity.
