~ Make sure all the components of the
gas burners have been correctly
assembled before switching on.
~ Pans must be the correct size for the
burner they are used on (see "Pans"). A
pan which is too small will be unstable
on the pan support. If the pan diameter
is too large, flames can spread out to
the sides and damage or burn the
worktop, wall claddings or surrounding
units and also parts of the cooktop.
Miele will not accept liability for any
damage resulting from such incorrect
use.
~ Ensure that the flames from the
burner do not spread out beyond the
base and up the sides of the pan.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Unless the pan manufacturer states
that you can do so, do not use pans
with very thin bases on this cooktop,
and never heat up empty pans as they
could get damaged. This could also
damage the appliance.
~ Always use the pan support
supplied. Never place a pan on the
burner itself.
~ Do not use or store flammable
materials in the appliance storage
drawer or near the appliance.
~ Do not spray aerosols in the vicinity
of this appliance while it is in operation.
~ Remove splashes of fat and other
food debris from the surface as soon as
possible. These are a fire hazard.
~ Replace the pan supports carefully
to avoid scratching the surface of the
cooktop.
~ Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated. Some
foods may contain micro-organisms
which are only destroyed by thorough
cooking at a sufficiently high
temperature for long enough.
Therefore, when cooking or reheating
food such as poultry, it is particularly
important that the food is completely
cooked through. If in doubt, select a
longer cooking or reheating time.
~ Do not use pans that are large
enough to cover more than one burner.
The resulting build-up of heat could
damage the appliance.
~ Avoid allowing liquids or foods
containing salt to spill onto the cooktop.
If salty foods or liquids do get on the
cooktop, they should be removed as
soon as possible to avoid the risk of
corrosion.

with these Warning and Safety
instructions.
13
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposal of your old appliance
or machine
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances /
machines often contain materials
which, if handled or disposed of
incorrectly, could be potentially
hazardous to human health and to the
environment. They are, however,
essential for the correct functioning of
your appliance or machine. Therefore,
please do not dispose of your old
machine or appliance with your
household waste.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation.
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure they are
offered for recycling.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
It should be unplugged from the mains
electricity supply and disconnected
from the gas supply by a competent
person.
The plug must be rendered useless
and the cable cut off directly behind the
appliance or the machine to prevent
misuse.
14
Before using for the first time
Please adhere the extra data plate for the appliance supplied
with this documentation in the space provided in the "After
sales service" section of this booklet.
Cleaning for the first time
^ Remove any protective foil and adhesive labels.
^ Clean all removable parts of the burners with a solution of
warm water and a small amount of washing-up liquid
applied with a soft sponge. Dry all parts thoroughly after
cleaning and then reassemble the burners (see "Cleaning
and care - Burners").
^ Clean the stainless steel cooktop with a damp cloth, and
then wipe dry.
The metal components have a protective coating which
may give off a slight smell when heated up for the first time.
The smell and any vapours will dissipate after a short time,
and do not indicate a faulty connection or appliance.
15
Operation
The control is used to ignite the burner and to regulate the
strength of the flame.
ßThe gas supply is turned off
& Strong flame
/ Weak flame
The burners can only be switched on by pressing in the
appropriate control and turning it anti-clockwise, and
switched off by turning the control clockwise.
The following will cause damage to the appliance:
- Switching on the burner without pressing the control
down,
- Switching the burner on by turning the control
clockwise,
- Switching the burner off by turning the control anticlockwise.
The manufacturer will not accept liability for any damage
resulting from incorrect operation.
Switching on
,Do not leave the appliance unattended whilst it is
being used.
^ The control for the burner required must be pressed in and
turned anti-clockwise to the large flame symbol to switch
on.
A spark is automatically produced on all burners when a
control knob is activated. This is completely normal and
does not indicate a fault with the appliance.
^ When the flame ignites, keep the control pressed in for
8-10 seconds, and then let it go.
^ If the flame goes out turn the control to "ß" and wait for at
least 1 minute before trying to ignite it again. If necessary
keep the control pressed in for longer.
^ If the burner does not ignite after a second attempt turn the
control back to "ß" and go to the "Problem solving guide" for
advice.
16
Operation
In the event of a power cut
If there is an interruption to the electricity supply the gas can
be ignited with a match.
^ Press in the relevant control and turn it anti-clockwise to the
large gas symbol.
^ Hold the control pressed in and light the gas at the burner
with a match.
^ Keep the control pressed in for a further 8-10 seconds and
then release it.
Regulating the flame
The burners can be regulated at any level between the
strongest and weakest flame.
Control the flame so that it does not spread out beyond the
sides of the pan. As the outer part of the flame is much hotter
than the centre, the tips of the flames should stay beneath the
pan base. Flame tips which extend beyond the sides of the
pan merely warm up the air in the room and can also damage
pan handles and increase the danger of injury.
Switching off
^ Turn the control clockwise to position "ß" .
This stops the flow of gas and the flame goes out.

– Refer to the chart above and ensure that the pan diameter
falls within the minimum and maximum diameters given for
the burner you are using. A pan base which is too small
will be unstable on the pan support. If the pan diameter is
too large, flames can spread out to the sides and damage
or burn the worktop, wall claddings or surrounding units
and also parts of the cooktop. The manufacturer cannot be
held liable for this type of damage.
– Wide, shallow pans are preferable to tall, narrow ones.
They will heat up faster.
– Select pans which are suitable for the burner they are to be
used on. In general: use larger diameter pans on the large
burners, and smaller diameter pans on the small burners.
– Pans with thick bases are preferable as these distribute
heat more evenly. With thin bases, there is a danger of
food overheating in places. Stir the food frequently.
– Any heat-resistant pans can be used on a gas burner.
18
Suitable pans
– Always place the pan on the pan support supplied with the
cooktop. Do not place a pan directly on top of the burner.
– Remember when purchasing new pans that manufacturers
usually refer to the diameter at the top of the pan in their
documentation.
– Use a lid whenever possible to minimise heat loss.
– When using a wok make sure that the base does not touch
the burner. A distance of 1 cm should be maintained
between the burner and the base of the wok pan above it.
Place pans flat on the pan support to ensure they do not tip
over. Slight tilting cannot always be avoided.
Wok ring
Use the wok ring supplied to give additional stability,
especially to woks with a rounded base.
Make sure that the wok ring is securely in position to prevent
it from slipping.
(See diagram).
19
Safety cut-out
This appliance is fitted with a thermoelectric ignition safety
device which cuts off the supply of gas to a burner if the
flame goes out, for example if food has boiled over, or if there
was a sudden draught.
^ To use the burner again, turn the control clockwise to the
"ß" position, and then switch it back on as normal.
The safety cut-out operates independently from the electricity
supply. This means that it will still work if the cooktop is used
during a power cut.
20
Cleaning and care
,Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this
appliance. The steam could reach the electrical
components and cause a short circuit.
– The appliance should be cleaned regularly, preferably
after each use. Allow the appliance to cool down to a safe
temperature before cleaning.
– To avoid water marks and limescale deposits, use a soft
cloth to dry surfaces that have been cleaned with water.
– Stubborn soiling should be soaked first.
– Food that has boiled over can cause discolouration of the
burner parts and the stainless steel cooktop. Remove any
soiling immediately.
– The surfaces of the two burner caps will become more
matt with time. This is quite normal and will not affect the
operation of the cooktop.
To avoid damaging the outer surfaces of your appliance, do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda, alkalines, ammonia,
acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing descaling agents,
– stain or rust removers,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– grill and oven cleaners,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive brushes or sponges, e.g. pot scourers,
brushes or sponges which have been previously used with
abrasive cleaning agents,
– sharp pointed objects
(these can damage the seal between the frame and the
worktop).

What to do if...
... the burner does not ignite after several attempts.
Check whether
– the burner is correctly assembled.
– the gas supply tap is turned on.
– the burner is dry and clean.
– the flame slits are dry and unblocked.
... the gas flame goes out after being lit.

Safety instructions for installation
Fit the wall units and rangehood
before fitting the cooktop to avoid
damaging the surface.
~ This appliance must not be
connected to a gas flue. It must be
installed and connected in accordance
with current installation regulations.
~ The room in which the gas cooktop
is installed must be at least 20 m3 in
size with a door or window in it which
can be opened to the outside air.
~ The veneer or laminate coatings of
worktops (or adjacent kitchen units)
must be treated with 100 °C
heat-resistant adhesive which will not
dissolve or distort.
Any backmoulds must be of
heat-resistant material.
~ An electric fryer must not be
installed directly next to a gas cooktop,
as the gas flames could ignite the fat in
the fryer. It is essential to maintain a
distance of at least 300 mm between
these two appliances.
~ A gas cooktop may not be built in
over a fridge, fridge freezer, freezer,
dishwasher, washing machine or
tumble dryer.
~ This appliance must not be installed
and used in mobile installations such as
ships etc.
28
~ Ensure that the gas pipe and
electrical cable are installed in such a
way that they do not touch any parts of
the appliance which become hot. This
could cause damage.
~ The electrical cable and a flexible
gas connection pipe must be installed
in such a way so that they do not come
into contact with any moving kitchen
parts (e.g. a drawer), and cannot
become trapped.
~ Observe carefully the safety
distances given on the following pages.
All dimensions in this instruction booklet
are given in mm.
,This appliance must be installed
and connected to services in
accordance with local and national
safety and building regulations.
Safety clearances
Safety clearance above the cooktop
Clearance underneath the cooktop
A minimum safety clearance of 30 mm
underneath the cooktop must be
provided for the installation of the
flexible gas connection hose and mains
electrical cable.
This clearance also prevents the
obstruction of moving kitchen
components underneath, e.g. a drawer.
A minimum safety clearance must be
maintained between the cooktop and
the rangehood above it. See the
rangehood manufacturer's operating
and installation instructions for details.
If the manufacturer's instructions are
not available for the rangehood, a
minimum safety clearance of at least
760 mm above the burner cap must be
maintained. For any flammable objects,
e.g. utensil rails, wall units etc. a
minimum clearance of at least 760 mm
above the burner cap must be
maintained between them and the
cooktop below.
When two or more appliances are
installed together below a
rangehood, which have different
safety clearances given in the
installation instructions, you should
select the greatest clearance.
29
Safety clearances
Side / rear clearances to the cooktop
Ideally the cooktop should be installed
with plenty of space on either side.
There may be a wall at the rear and a
tall unit or wall at one side. On the other
side, however, no unit or divider should
stand higher than the cooktop (see
illustrations).

Safety clearances
Before installing the appliance, check
that the location provides the required
clearances from combustible material
and, if necessary, provide protection to
adjacent surfaces as required by
regulations.
A gas appliance shall be installed such
that the surface temperature of any
nearby combustible surface* will not
exceed 65 °C above ambient.
The minimum clearance from a
combustible surface shall be a 200 mm
horizontal distance from the periphery
of any gas burner (AS 5601).
If that horizontal clearance is less than
200 mm, that vertical surface must be
protected by a non-combustible
material for 150 mm above the cooktop
surface across the entire length (depth,
width).
The shown area indicates the protected
surface, which may be ceramic tiles or
other approved material.
*Combustible surface:
A material which will ignite and burn,
and includes material which has
been flameproofed.

Installation
Preparing the worktop
Installing the cooktop
^ Make the worktop cut-out following
the dimensions applicable.
Remember to maintain a minimum
safety clearance from the back wall,
as well as from any tall unit or side
wall to the right or left of the cooktop.
See "Safety clearances".
^ Seal the cut surfaces with a suitable
heat-resistant sealant to avoid
swelling caused by moisture.
If, during installation, you find that the
seals on the corners of the frame are
not flush with the worktop surface,
the corner radius (ß R4) can be
carefully scribed to fit.
^ Feed the connection cable down
through the cut-out.
^ Place the cooktop in the cut-out
without securing it.
^ Connect the cooktop to the mains
(see "Electrical connection").
^ Connect the appliance to the gas
supply (see "Gas connection").
^ Secure the appliance using the
brackets a supplied.

General installation tips
Sealant
Tiled worktop
Do not use any sealant unless
expressly instructed to do so. The
sealing strip under the edge of the top
part of the cooktop provides a sufficient
seal for the worktop.
The grouting a and the shaded area
underneath the cooktop frame must be
smooth and even so that the frame sits
evenly and the sealing strip underneath
the top part of the cooktop provides a
sufficient seal for the worktop.
Do not use sealant between the
frame of the top part of the cooktop
and the worktop.
This could cause difficulties if the
cooktop ever needs to be taken out
for servicing and possibly result in
damage to the frame or the worktop.
34
Tiled worktops must be a minimum
5 mm thick to ensure the surface
temperatures of the combustible
surfaces underneath the tiles do not
exceed 50 K above ambient.
Electrical connection
Important
All electrical work should be carried
out by a suitably qualified and
competent person in strict
accordance with the wiring rules
and national and local safety
regulations.
If the connection cable is damaged, it
must be replaced by a suitably
qualified electrician with a special
connection cable of type H 05 V V-F
(pvc insulated), available from Miele.
For extra safety it is advisable to install
a residual current device (RCD), with a
trip current of 30 mA.
Connection for each appliance should
be made via a suitable isolator.
Note: Isolation of the appliance is
required when the appliance safety
device is activated. Ensure the isolating
switch is easily accessible and visible.
The data plate gives the necessary
data for connection.
The wires in the mains lead are
coloured in accordance with the
following code:
Green/yellow = earth
