Information on acrylamides

recommend that you cook at the lowest temperatures and
do not brown food too much.

The appliance does not operate.
• Set the heat setting.
• Examine the fuse in the electrical system of the house in the fuse box. If
the fuses blow time after time, speak to an authorised electrician.
The residual heat indicator does not
come on.
The cooking zone is not hot because it operated only for a short time. If the
cooking zone must be hot, speak to the after sales service.
If you tried the above solutions and cannot repair the
problem, speak to your dealer or the Customer Care Department. Give the data from the rating plate, three-digitletter code for the glass ceramic (it is in the corner of the
cooking surface) and an error message that comes on.
If you operated the appliance incorrectly, the servicing by
a customer service technician or dealer will not be free of
