IMPORTANT WARNINGS • The appliance may be built-in and connected to the power supply only by a qualified technician.

Particular areas of the cooktop surface (adjacent to the hotplates) are hot during operation.

Prevent the children to hang around the appliance and warn them properly against the danger of burns.

Hot oil ignites readily, so be sure have the preparation of such food (fries) under constant control.

Hotplates may not be left in operation empty, without any dishes on top.

Never use the appliance for heating the ambience.

Never use the induction cooktop as a working surface. Sharp objects may damage the cooktop surface.

Never place any metal objects upon the induction hotplate, such as knives, forks, spoons, pot lids, and the like, as they may get very hot.

Preparation of food in aluminium or plastic cookware is not allowed. Never place any plastic objects or aluminium foil upon the cooktop surface.

In case any other appliances are plugged in the electric mains close to the cooktop, prevent the contact of the plug cable with the hot cooking zones.

Never keep any flammable or temperature sensitive objects, like cleaning agents, sprays, detergents, etc., below the appliance.

Never use cracked or broken induction cooktop. In case you notice any visible cracks on the surface, cut the power supply immediately.

CONNECTION TO THE POWER SUPPLY

Basic adjustment of sensors to the ambience

Installation diagram

Connections may be carried out by a qualified technician only. The earthing protection must comply with the standing regulations.

Connection terminals are revealed when the connection box cover is removed.

Prior any attempted connection check that the voltage indicated on the rating plate is in line with your home power supply.

The rating plate is located underneath the appliance.

The appliance is manufactured for use with the power supply voltage

230-240 V ~.

The electric wiring should be equipped with a circuit breaker able to isolate the appliance from the mains in all points, with the distance between terminals of at least 3 mm in open position. This may be done by means of fuses, safety switches, etc.

The connection should be selected in accordance with the declared charge capacity of the mains and the fuse power.

Such appliances are allowed to be mounted on one side next to a high kitchen cabinet, the height of which may exceed that of the appliance. On the opposite side however, only a kitchen cabinet of equal height as the appliance is allowed.

Upon the completion of installation, live wires and isolated cables must be adequately protected against accidental touching.

Upon each connection to the power supply the sensors of the appliance are automatically adjusted to the environment to ensure their proper function. All displays turn on and are fully illuminated for a few seconds.

During the adjustment procedure the sensors must be free of any objects, otherwise the adjustment procedure will be interrupted until such objects are removed from the sensor surface. During this period the regulation of the cooktop is impossible.

ATTENTION !

Before attempting any repairs on the appliance, disconnect the power supply. In accordance with the mains voltage the appliance should be connected in line with the attached diagram.

The earthing wire (PE) must be connected to the terminal marked with the earthing symbol .

The connection cable must lead through the relief safety device, protecting it from accidental pulling out. Upon the completion of installation switch all the hotplates on for about 3 minutes to check the proper functioning.

Hotplate function

Hob surface is completely flat and smooth, without edges to accumulate dirt.

principle

• The hob is fitted with high power induction hotplates. Heat is generated directly

 

at the bottom of the dish, where it is most needed, without any losses through

 

the ceramic glass surface.

 

This way the required extent of energy is considerably smaller compared to

 

traditional heaters, which operate on radiation principle.

 

• Glass ceramic hotplate is not heated directly, but only by return heat

 

transmitted by the dish. This heat figures as “remaining heat” after the hotplate is

 

turned off. The induction hotplate generates heat from the induction coil,

 

installed underneath the ceramic glass surface. The coil creates magnetic field

 

at the bottom of the dish (which can me magnetized) which in turn originates

 

whirling fl ows of current which then heat the hotplate.

IMPORTANT!

In case sugar or other heavily sweetened substance is spilled on the hotplate, wipe it immediately and remove the sugar residues with a scraper although the cooking zone is still hot, otherwise the hotplate may be damaged.

Avoid cleaning the cooktop while the cooking zones are still hot, as you may damage the hob.

Appropriate cookware for • Induction hotplate will function perfectly only if appropriate cookware is used.

induction hotplates

• Dish should be in the middle of the hotplate during cooking.

 

• The appropriate cookware is the one which enables induction, for example

 

steel, enamel or steel alloy cookware. Pots made from steel alloy with copper or

 

aluminium bottom, or glass pots are inappropriate.

 

• If you use the pressure cooker (“economy pot”) keep it under close surveillance

 

until proper pressure is obtained. Hotplate should fi rst operate on maximum

 

power, then follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use the appropriate

 

sensor to decrease the power.

 

 

 

When buying cookware, check if it bears the label “allows induction”.

Magnet test

Use small magnet to test if the dish bottom is magnetic. Only dishes where magnet sticks to the bottom are suitable for induction cooking.

Dish recognition

One of great advantages of the induction hotplate is dish recognition. Even if there are no dishes upon the hotplate, or the dish diameter is smaller than the diameter of the relevant hotplate, there are no thermal energy losses. When the hotplate is on, the power indicator displays letter “U”. If you place the dish over that hotplate within the following 10 minutes, the hotplate recognizes the dish and turns on to the preset power value.

At the moment you remove the dish from the hotplate, power is suspended. If

23

you place smaller dish upon the hotplate and it is recognized, the hotplate will only use the amount of energy required to heat the dish according to its size.

Hotplate may be damaged if:

• it is turned on and left empty, or an empty dish is placed on it;

• you use clay dishes which leave scratches on the ceramic glass surface;

• you fail to wipe the dish bottom dry prior placing it on the ceramic glass hotplate; heat induction is obstructed and the hotplate may be damaged;

• you fail to use the appropriate dishes that can be magnetized: steel dishes, enamel or steel alloy dishes; induction hotplate will not function otherwise.

Power regulation

Heating power of the hotplates may be set at nine different levels.

 

The following chart indicates illustrative use of each power setting.

ENERGY SAVING TIPS • When buying cookware be careful in selecting size: pot diameter usually refers to the top edge of the dish, which is often larger than the dish bottom.

Steam-pressure pots (economic pots), which use pressure in tightly sealed interior, are especially economic, and save both time and energy. Shorter cooking time leaves more vitamins in food.

Always leave enough water in steam-pressure pots, otherwise it may result in overheating which may damage both the pot and the hotplate.

Always cover the cookware with lids of appropriate size.

Use such dish size to accommodate the quantity of food to be prepared. If you use excessively large pot for small amount of food, you will consume considerably more energy.

Hob control

• After turning the induction hob on all displays come on for a moment. The hob

 

is ready for operation.

 

• The hob is fitted with electronic sensors which are switched on if you touch the

 

relevant circle for at least one second.

 

• Each sensor activation is followed by a sound signal.

 

• Avoid placing any objects on sensor surface (The hob turns off after 10

 

seconds).

 

• Always keep the sensor surface clean.

Activating the hob

When the cooktop is connected to the power supply, the key lock is always and

 

immediately on. To turn the cooktop on, first of all you must remove the lock by

 

pressing the key (G), then press the key ON/OFF (F), you will hear an acoustic

 

signal with the consequent turning on of the control bar.

 

It will not come on if the key lock function is activated indicated by a pilot light.

 

The heaters remain off (all the digits show »0«) until a power level is selected. If

 

the selection is not made in 10 seconds, and if the timers are off, the control

 

turns off automatically.

Selecting a power level

With the control on, the first time the sensor (+) is pressed, the heater switches

for a certain heater

on at level 1.

 

The sensor (+) raises the cooking level to a maximum of 9, whereas the sensor

 

(-) reduces the cooking level to 0 (heater off).

 

With the heater at position 0, the sensor (-) raises the cooking level to 9.

 

If the sensor is held down, the action is repeated twice every second.

25

Pan sensor

Each burner is complete with its own sensor for detecting the presence of a pan.

 

The system is fine-adjusted to recognize the presence of a pan that, according

 

to the scale of the EN standards, is one size smaller than the nominal diameter

 

of the burner. If the hotplate fails to detect any pan or detects an aluminium pan,

 

power level flashes on its display. After 60 seconds power level backs to 0.

 

If power level flashes on the display when a pan is actually on the hotplate,

 

this generally means that the size or shape of the pan concerned is

 

unsuitable. In this case, check whether the type of pan is suitable for

 

induction cooking (see the pan manufacturer’s trademark or instructions).

Booster function

Activating the Booster function

 

This function can be activated if the touch control is on. It takes the cooking level

 

to the maximum power for 10 minutes and then returns to level 9.

 

The display shows the function has been activated by the letter ‘P’.

 

After setting the cooking zone to level 9, just press the key (+) and the booster is

 

activated, the power display shows a 'P'.

 

Cancelling the Booster function

 

The Booster function can be cancelled automatically after the preset period of 10

 

minutes, or before this time if the user wishes.

 

When a burner is running at “P” (booster) level and:

 

▪ Booster is deactivated by pressing key (-), its power is reduced to level 9.

Key lock

Holding the key lock sensor (G) down turns the key lock function on or off. If the

 

pilot light associated with the key lock sensor is on, the keypad is locked.

 

The locking function can be activated when the cooking levels are activated or

 

when the cook top is off. If the cook top is on, the key lock function locks all the

 

sensors except the general on/off sensor and the key lock. When the cook top is

 

off, the key lock function locks all the sensors and the general on/off (F).

 

If the cooktop is turned off while the "key lock" is active, this will be still active at

 

the next turning on.

 

When the cooktop is connected to the power supply, the "key lock" is

 

active.

 

Unlocking the keypad

 

If the keypad is locked, the pilot light associated with the key lock sensor is on,

 

holding down the key lock sensor (G) turns the key lock function off and the pilot

 

light goes off.

Operating the timer

The timer value can be selected between 1 and 99 minutes, and can be modified

 

at any time.

 

Initial default setting of the timer

 

The hob must turn on.

 

If the timer is off, it is activated by pressing one of its two keys (E+ o E-).

Heater on timer

The user can select the heater on which the timer function is to operate. The

26

timer can only operate on one heater each time.

The heater must always be selected (the display must be viewed “0”) before the time is set; otherwise, the timer will switch off.

If we take longer than 10 seconds to select the heater, the timer will switch off. If, after selecting the heater, the time is not defined (T=00) in 5 sec., the timer switches off.

When the timer value runs out, the heater associated with the timer switches off.

Indication of the heater on timer

The touch control indicates the heater on which the timer is operating. This indication consists of a LED next to the heater display.

This option reminds the user at all times that the heater is on timer.

Increasing the value of the timer

If the sensor (+) or (-) associated with the timer is held down, The value increases/decreases automatically. This makes it possible to reach the desired timer setting more quickly. From the tenth consecutive increase/decrease of the timer setting, the speed at which the value changes increases.

Timer Countdown End

The countdown begins 5 seconds after the last operation on the keys (+ and -) of the timer (E). You will hear an acoustic signal, and timer's display and the LED of the zone where you have activated the timer stop flashing.

The last minute will be displayed in seconds.

Switching the timer off

To cancel the operation of the timer, select a timer value of <00> using the sensor (-), or switch off the timer by pressing the corresponding sensors (E+ and E-).

Duration of the alarm

When the time set on the timer has run out, a beep sounds for 1 minute. After 1 minute from when the timer alarm starts, the beep stops. The timer displays continue to flash with the indication <00>. The alarm can be cancelled by the user at any time, even during the first minute of the alarm, by pressing any sensor on the touch control.

ATTENTION: The timer can also be set up for a cooking zone that is at the level "0", LED will remain flashing all the time of the countdown. In this case the timer can have alarm function.

Automatic safety off

If the power level is not changed during a preset time, the corresponding heater

 

turns off automatically.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The maximum time a heater can stay on depends on the selected cooking level.

Uninterrupted operation at every power level of each cooking zone is limited in time (see the table above). When the cooking zone turns off by the safety mechanism, the display shows the symbol "0" or "H", if there is residual heat.

The cooking zone can be turned off by the sensor (A-) for setting the level cooking.

Example:

Set the hotplate to power level 5 and let it operate for some time. If you don’t

27

change the level, the safety mechanism will switch the hotplate off after 10 hours.

Protection against overheating

Induction cooktop is also fitted with safety device against overheating which protects electronic parts from damages. This device operates on several levels. When cooking zone’s temperature increases excessively, the two-stage fan switches first. If this is not enough, extra powerful heating is deactivated, and finally the safety device either reduces the heating power of certain cooking zones or turns them off completely. When the hotplate cools off, the full power of hotplate is again available. So during the operation you can hear an steady hum due to the turning on of the cooling fan. It is possible that the cooling fan continues to operate even after the cooktop turning off.

Switching a heater off Pressing the heater keys (+ and -) at the same time switches off the manually corresponding heater and the display shows the power level as 0. We can also

switch off the heater by pressing the key (-) until the display shows the power level as 0.

General off

The general off function can be performed regardless of the operating mode of the

 

cook top by pressing the on/off sensor (F).

 

When the cook top is turned off, a beep sounds and the displays turn off, as long

 

as an ‘H’ is not being shown on the corresponding display as a result of residual

 

heat or an alarm.

Displaying power levels

Power level 0:

 

A constant “0” is displayed on the heater display. If the induction generator

 

indicates residual heat, the display alternates between “0” and “H”. This

 

indication only disappears when there is no longer any danger (at 50 °C).

 

The display shows a “0” as long as the temperature remains below 50 °C,

 

whereas it shows an “H” whenever the temperature exceeds 50 °C.

 

To save energy, turn off the burner in advance, in order to exploit the residual

 

heat.

 

Power level 1…9, P:

 

If no pan is detected or if an aluminium pan is detected, the power level flashes

 

on the heater display. After 30 seconds, if a non-aluminium pan is not detected,

 

the power level returns to 0.

 

When a non-aluminium pan is detected, the power level is shown constant on

 

the heater display.

Power Management

In cases where the cooktop is already in operation for some time, to change the

 

limit of power, before proceeding with the planning, unplug it, then reinsert the

 

plug after a couple of minutes.

 

The power drawn is 2800 W, but you can increase it at 3500 W, 6000 W or

 

7200W.

28

Power management for a

The sequence to set a new Cooktop Power Limit is:

During the first 30 seconds after plugging the appliance

The Touch has to be unlocked and all Heaters Off

Push at the same time (A+,A-,D-,D+) keys

Once this is done, a beep sounds and “Po” Characters will be in the timer display and the “actual Cooktop Power Limit” will be in the display 1 and in the display 4.

For selecting a new Power Limit:

With any Heater (+ or -) key, the Power Limit is increased/decreased. The selectable powers are: 2800 W, 3500 W, 6000 W or 7200W.

The sequence to finish recording the new Cooktop Power Limit is :

Push at the same time (A+,A-,D-,D+) keys.

Once this is done, new Cooktop Power Limit is recorded and there is a system reset.

To finish without recording changes:

If during 60 seconds there is no action, changes are not recorded and there is a system reset

For reduced power cooktops, each time the user tries to increase the power, the total power level of the cooktop is calculated. If this total power level is greater than the cooktop power limit, the power increase is not allowed. An error beep sounds and the heater display shows the actual power level and an ‘r’ blinking.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE OF COOKTOP

Fig.1

Fig.2

Fig.3

Fig.4

Ceramic glass hob should be cleaned only when completely cooled down, preferably after each use, otherwise even the slightest stains remaining after cooking may burn into the hob surface with each following use.

For regular maintenance of ceramic-glass hob use special cleansing agents, produced in such way to create protective film upon the surface.

Before each use, wipe the dust and other particles from the hob, they may scratch the surface (Fig. 1).

Caution: use of steel wool, abrasive cleaning sponges, and abrasive detergents can scratch the surface of the hob. The surface may also be damaged by the use of aggressive sprays and inappropriate liquid chemicals (Fig.1 and 2).

Pattern marks can be erased by the use of aggressive cleansing agents or rough and damaged cookware bottoms (Fig. 2).

Minor stains are removed with moist soft cloth; after that the surface should be wiped dry (Fig. 3).

Water stains are removed with gentle vinegar solution, but you must not wipe the frame with it (certain models only), since it may lose its glow. Never use any aggressive sprays or limestone removers (Fig. 3).

Major stains are removed with special ceramic-glass cleansers. Follow strictly the manufacturer’s instructions.

Be careful to remove any remains of cleansing agent from the hob surface, otherwise they will be heated during the next use and can damage the hob (Fig. 3).

Stubborn and burnt stains are removed with special ceramic-glass scraper. Be careful, however, not to touch the hotplate surface with the scraper handle (Fig. 4).

Handle the scraper with utmost care to avoid injuries!

Sugar and sugar containing food may permanently damage the ceramic-glass hob surface (Fig. 5), so the remains of sugar and sugar containing food must be scraped off from the hob surface immediately, when the hotplates are still hot (Fig. 4).

Discoloring of ceramic-glass hob has no effect whatsoever on its operation and stability. In most cases, it appears as the consequence of burnt in food remains, or as a result of dragging pots and pans (especially aluminium or copper bottom cookware) across the surface, and such discoloring is rather hard to remove.

Note: All described faults are mostly esthetical and do not affect directly the operation of the appliance. Remedy of such faults is not covered by warranty.
