~ Make sure all the components of the
gas burner have been correctly
assembled before switching on.
11
Warning and safety instructions
~ 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. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
this type of damage.
~ Ensure that the flames from the
burner do not spread out beyond the
base and up the sides of the pan.
~ When using a rangehood over the
gas cooktop, ensure that the burner is
always covered with a pan when in use.
Otherwise flames could be drawn up by
the suction of the rangehood, parts of
which could then be damaged or even
set on fire.
~ Do not cover the appliance, e.g.
with a cloth, kitchen foil, etc. This could
be a fire hazard if the appliance is
switched on by mistake.
~ Remove splashes of fat and other
food debris from the surface as soon as
possible. These are a fire hazard.
~ Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oil or fat
as these are fire hazards if overheated.
Very hot oil can catch fire and could
even set a rangehood above on fire.
Always heat fat slowly, watching as it
heats.
~ If, despite this, oil or fat does catch
fire, do not attempt to put out the flames
with water. Use a suitable fire blanket,
saucepan lid, damp towel or similar to
smother the flames.
~ Do not use plastic or aluminium foil
~ Do not flambé under a rangehood.

temperatures, and could catch fire.
appliance must always be used. Never
place a pan on the burner itself.
~ Do not use or store flammable
materials near tthis appliance.
~ Do not use the appliance as a
resting place for anything else. The
article could melt or catch fire if
residual heat is still present or if the
appliance is switched on by mistake.
12
The flames could set the rangehood on
fire.
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.
Warning and safety instructions
~ Replace the pan supports carefully
to avoid scratching the surface of the
cooktop.
~ Using the gas cooktop will cause a
build-up of heat and moisture in the
room in which it is installed. Ensure that
the room has sufficient natural or
mechanical means of ventilation, e.g.
an extractor.
~ If the cooktop is used for very long
periods of time, additional ventilation of
the room may be necessary, e.g. by
opening windows or doors, or running
the extractor on the highest setting.
~ When using an electric socket near
the appliance, care should be taken
that the cable of the electrical
appliance does not come into contact
with the hot appliance. The insulation
on the cable could become damaged,
giving rise to an electric shock hazard.
~ Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated. Many
factors will affect the overall cooking
time, including the size and quantity of
the food and its temperature.
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.
~ Spray canisters, aerosols and other
inflammable substances must not be
stored in a drawer under the cooktop.
Cutlery inserts must be heat-resistant.
~ Do not spray aerosols in the vicinity
of this appliance while it is in operation.
~ If the appliance has not been used
for a long period of time it should be
thoroughly cleaned before it is used
again. It is also advisable to have the
appliance tested for safety. This should
be done at regular intervals.
~ In the event of damage or a defect,
switch off the appliance immediately.
Turn off the gas supply tap, and
disconnect completely from the
electricity supply.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.

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
burner 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 burner (see
"Cleaning and care - burner").
^ Clean the stainless steel trough with
a damp cloth, and then wipe dry.
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
Rapid ignition system
The appliance is supplied with a rapid
ignition system with the following
features:
– The control knob can be released as
soon as the flame has ignited.
– Should the flame be extinguished by
a gust of air, the burner will re-ignite
automatically.
If re-ignition is unsuccessful, the gas
supply will be cut off automatically
(see "Safety cut-off").
The burner can only be switched on
by pushing in the control and turning
it anti-clockwise,. It is switched off
by turning the control clockwise. The
outer flame ring can only be
switched on and off by pushing
down on the control and turning it in
the appropriate direction.
The following will cause damage to
the appliance:
-
Switching on, adjusting the
flame and switching off
Switching on the burner without
pushing the control down,
-
The control knob is used to ignite the
burner and regulate the strength of the
flame.
Switching the burner on by
turning the control clockwise,
-
Switching the outer flame ring
on or off without pushiong the
control down,
& Strongest flame:
The inner and outer burners operate
at the highest setting
-
& Strong flame (7 o'clock position):
The outer burner operates at the
lowest setting,
the inner burner at the highest
setting
Switching the burner off by
turning the control
anti-clockwise.
The manufacturer will not accept
liability for any damaging resulting
from incorrect operation.
ß The gas supply is turned off
& Strong flame (5 o'clock position):
The outer burner is switched off,
the inner burner operates at the
highest setting
/ Weakest flame:
The outer burner is switched off,
the inner burner operates at the
lowest setting
16
Operation
Switching on
,Do not leave the appliance
unattended whilst it is being used.
Regulating the 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
risk of injury.
^ To ignite the burner push the control
knob down and turn it anti-clockwise
to the large flame symbol. The ignitor
will make a clicking sound and ignite
the gas.
If the burner does not ignite, turn the
control to off "ß". Air the room or wait at
least 1 minute before trying again.
If the burner does not ignite the second
time, turn the control to "ß", and see
"Problem solving guide".
When switching on, re-ignition
sometimes occurs (1-2 clicks) if the
flame on the ignition safety device has
gone out briefly, or if the thermal
element is not hot enough, e.g.
following a gust of air.
^ To move from the high to the low
setting, turn the control
anti-clockwise until it meets a
resistance a. Then press it down
and continue to turn it past the
resistance before releasing it. You
can now select the setting you
require.
^ To move from the low to the high
setting, turn the control clockwise
until it meets a resistance b. Then
press it down and continue to turn it
past the resistance before releasing
it. You can now select the setting you
require.
Switching off
^ Turn the control clockwise to position
"ß".
This stops the flow of gas and the flame
goes out.
17
Operation
In-operation indicator and
Residual heat indicator
When the gas cooktop is switched on,
the in-operation indicator lights up.
Once it has reached a certain
temperature, the residual heat indicator
also lights up. The in-operation
indicator goes out when the gas
cooktop is switched off. The residual
heat indicator remains on until the gas
cooktop is cool enough to touch.
Do not touch or place any heat
sensitive objects on the gas cooktop
while the residual heat indicator is
still on. Danger of burning and fire.
If the display is flashing, this shows
there is a fault. See section "Problem
solving guide".
18
Pans
Min. base diameter
Pots / pans = 15 cm
Max. rim diameter
Pots / pans = 24 cm
– Wide, shallow pans are preferable to
tall, narrow ones. They will heat up
faster.
– Use the correct sized pans for your
appliance. 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. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable
for this type of damage.
– 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.
– 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.
– Remember when purchasing new
pans that manufacturers usually refer
to the diameter at the top of the pan
in their documentation.
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 located
securely in its correct position. See
illustration.
– Use a lid whenever possible to
minimise heat loss.
– The pan support supplied with the
appliance must always be used.
Never place a pan on the burner
itself.

General installation tips
Tiled worktop
Do not use sealant between the
frame of the top part of the
appliance and the worktop.
This could cause difficulties if the
applinace ever needs to be taken
out for servicing and possibly result
in damage to the frame or the
worktop.
The sealing strip under the edge of the
top part of the applinace provides a
sufficient seal for the worktop.
38
The grouting a and the shaded area
underneath the appliance frame must
be smooth and even so that the frame
sits evenly and the sealing strip
underneath the top part of the
appliance provides a sufficient seal for
the worktop.
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 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 the Miele
Spare Parts Department.
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
Blue
= neutral
Brown
= live
As the colours of the wires in the mains
lead of this appliance may not
correspond with the coloured markings
identifying the terminals in your plug
proceed as follows:
– The wire which is coloured green
and yellow must be connected to the
terminal in the plug which is marked
with the letter E or by the earth
symbol - or coloured green or
green and yellow.
– The wire which is coloured blue must
be connected to the terminal which
is marked with the letter N or
coloured black.
– The wire which is coloured brown
must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter A or
coloured red.
