Keep an eye on the cooking using grease or oils: that may quickly ignite.

Be careful not to burn yourself while or after using the appliance.

Make sure no cable of any fixed or moving appliance contacts with the glass or the hot saucepan.

Magnetically objects (credit cards, floppy disks, calculators) should not be placed near to the engaged appliance.

Metallic objects such as knives, forks, spoons and lids should not be placed on the hob surface since they can get hot.

In general do not place any metallic object except heating containers on the glass surface.

In case of untimely engaging or residual heat, this one may heat, melt or even burn.

Never cover the appliance with a cloth or a protection sheet. This is supposed to become very hot and catch fire.

This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

17

Precautions not to damage the appliance

Raw pan bottoms or damaged saucepans (not enamelled cast iron pots,) may damage the ceramic glass.

Sand or other abrasive materials may damage ceramic glass.

Avoid dropping objects, even little ones, on the vitroceramic.

Do not hit the edges of the glass with saucepans.

Make sure that the ventilation of the appliance works according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Do not put or leave empty saucepans on the vitroceramic hobs.

Sugar, synthetic materials or aluminium sheets must not contact with the heating zones. These may cause breaks or other alterations of the vitroceramic glass by cooling: switch on the appliance and take them immediately out of the hot heating zone (be careful: do not burn yourself).

Never place any hot container over the control panel.

If a drawer is situated under the embedded appliance, make sure the space between the content of the drawer and the inferior part of the appliance is large enough (2 cm). This is essential to guaranty a correct ventilation.

Never put any inflammable object (ex. sprays) into the drawer situated under the vitroceramic hob. The eventual cutlery drawers must be resistant to heat.

Precautions in case of appliance failure

If a defect is noticed, switch on the appliance and turn off the electrical supplying.

If the ceramic glass is cracked or fissured, you must unplug the appliance and contact the after sales service.

Repairing has to be done by specialists. Do not open the appliance by yourself.

WARNING: If the surface is cracked, switch off the appliance to avoid the possibility of electric shock.

Other protections

Note sure that the container pan is always centred on the cooking zone. The bottom of the pan must have to cover as much as possible the cooking zone.

For the users of pacemaker, the magnetic field could influence its operating. We recommend getting information to the retailer or of the doctor.

Do not to use aluminium or synthetic material containers: they could melt on still hot cooking zones.

DO NOT USE INTERMEDIATE REMOVABLE ACCESSORIES TO HEAT

PANS WHICH ARE NOT ADAPTED TO INDUCTION.

Ventilation

The cooling system is fully automatic. The cooling fan starts with a low speed when the calories brought out by the electronic system reach a certain level. The ventilation starts his high speed when the hob is intensively used. The cooling fan reduces his speed and stops automatically when the electronic circuit is cooled enough.

STARTING-UP AND APPLIANCE MANAGEMENT

Before the first use

Clean your hob with a damp cloth, and then dry the surface thoroughly. Do not use detergent which risks causing blue-tinted colour on the glass surface.

Induction principle

An induction coil is located under each heating zone. When it is engaged, it produces a variable electromagnetic field which produces inductive currents in the ferromagnetic bottom plate of the pan. The result is a heating-up of the pan located on the heating zone.

Of course the pan has to be adapted:

All ferromagnetic pans are recommended (please verify it thanks a little magnet): cast iron and steel pans, enamelled pans, stainless-steel pans with ferromagnetic bottoms…

Are excluded: cupper, pure stainless-steel, aluminium, glass, wood, ceramic, stoneware,…

The induction heating zone adapts automatically the size of the pan. With a too small diameter the pan doesn’t work. This diameter is varying in function of the heating zone diameter.

If the pan is not adapted to the induction hob the display will show [ U ].

Sensitive touch

Your ceramic hob is equipped with electronic controls with sensitive touch keys. When your finger presses the key, the corresponding command is activated. This activation is validated by a control light, a letter or a number in the display and/or a “beep” sound.

In the case of a general use press only one key at the same time.

Pan detection

The pan detection ensures a perfect safety.

The induction doesn’t work :

If there is no pan on the heating zone or if this pan is not adapted to the induction. In this case it is impossible to increase the power and the display shows [ U ]. This symbol disappears when a pan is put on the heating zone.

If the pan is removed from the heating zone the operation is stopped. The display shows [U]. The symbol [ U ] disappears when the pan is put back to the heating zone. The cooking continues with the power level set before.

Residual heat indication

After the switch off of a heating zone or the complete stop of the hob, the heating zones are still hot and indicates [ H ] on the display.

The symbol [ H ] disappears when the heating zones may be touched without danger.

As far as the residual heat indicators are on light, don’t touch the heating zones and don’t put any heat sensitive object on them . There are risks of burn and fire.

27

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

The installation comes under the exclusive responsibility of specialists.

The installer is held to respect the legislation and the standards enforce in his home country.

How to stick the gasket:

The gasket supplied with the hob avoids all infiltration of liquids in the cabinet. His installation has to be done carefully, in conformity of the following drawing.

Stick the gasket (2) two millimeters from the external edge of the glass, after removing the protection sheet (3).

Fitting - installing:

The cut out sizes are:

Reference

Cut-size

7331230

560 x 490 mm

7370230

560 x 490 mm

Ensure that there is a distance of 50 mm between the hob and the wall or sides.

The hobs are classified as “Y” class for heat protection. Ideally the hob should be installed with plenty of space on either side. There may be a wall at the rear and tall units or a wall at one side. On the other side, however, no unit or divider must stand higher than

the hob.

The piece of furniture or the support in which the hob is to be fitted, as well as the edges of furniture, the laminate coatings and the glue used to fix them, must be able to resist temperatures of up to 100 °C.

The mural rods of edge must be heat-resisting.

Not to install the hob to the top of a not ventilated oven or a dishwasher.

To guarantee under the bottom of the hob casing a space of 20 mm to ensure a good air circulation of the electronic device.

If a drawer is placed under the work, avoid to put into this drawer flammable objects (for example: sprays) or not heat-resistant objects.

Materials which are often used to make worktops expand on contact with water. To protect the cut out edge, apply a coat of varnish or special sealant. Particular care must be given to applying the adhesive joint supplied with the hob to prevent any leakage into the supporting furniture. This gasket guaranties a correct seal when used in conjunction with smooth work top surfaces.

The safety gap between the hob and the cooker hood placed above must respect the indications of the hood manufacturer. In case of absence of instructions respect a distance minimum of 760 mm.

The connection cord should be subjected, after building, with no mechanical constraint, such for example of the fact of the drawer.

28

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION

The installation of this appliance and the connection to the electrical network should be entrusted only to an electrician perfectly to the fact of the normative regulations and which respects them scrupulously.

Protection against the parts under tension must be ensured after the building-in.

The data of connection necessary are on the stickers place on the hob casing near the connection box.

The connection to the main must be made using an earthed plug or via an omnipolar circuit breaking device with a contact opening of at least 3 mm.

The electrical circuit must be separated from the network by adapted devices, for example: circuit breakers, fuses or contactors.

Caution!

This appliance has only to be connected to a network 230 V~ 50/60 Hz.
