Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Installation, maintenance and repair work may only be carried out
by a suitably qualified and competent person in strict accordance
with national and local safety regulations. Installation, maintenance
and repairs by unqualified persons could be dangerous. Miele
cannot be held liable for unauthorised work.
~ A damaged appliance can be dangerous. Check the appliance
for visible signs of damage. Do not use a damaged appliance.
~ The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed if
correctly earthed. It is most important that this basic safety
requirement is observed and regularly tested, and where there is
any doubt, the household wiring system should be inspected by a
qualified electrician.
~ To avoid the risk of damage to the appliance, make sure that the
connection data (frequency and voltage) on the data plate
corresponds to the household supply, before connecting the
appliance to the mains supply.
Consult a qualified electrician if in any doubt.
~ Do not connect the appliance to the mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket adapter or an extension lead. These do not guarantee
the required safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
~ For safety reasons, this appliance may only be used after it has
been built in.
~ This cooktop must not be installed and operated in mobile
installations (e.g. on a ship).
~ Do not open the casing of the appliance.
Tampering with electrical connections or components and
mechanical parts is highly dangerous to the user and can cause
operational faults.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ While the appliance is under warranty, repairs should only be
undertaken by a service technician authorised by Miele. Otherwise
the warranty will be invalidated.
~ The manufacturer can only guarantee the safety of the appliance
when original Miele replacement parts are used. Faulty components
must only be replaced by genuine Miele original spare parts.
~ The cooktop is not intended for use with an external timer switch
or a remote control system.
~ The cooktop must be connected to the electrical supply by a
qualified electrician. If the electrical connection cable is faulty, it
must be replaced with a special connection cable installed by a
qualified electrician. See "Electrical connection".
~ The appliance must be disconnected from the mains electricity
supply during installation, maintenance and repair work. Ensure that
power is not supplied to the appliance until after it has been
installed or until any maintenance or repair work has been carried
out.
~ It is only completely isolated from the electricity supply when:
– the mains fuse is disconnected,
– the screw-out fuse is removed
(in countries where this is applicable),
– it is switched off at the wall socket and the plug is withdrawn from
the socket, or it is switched off at the isolator.
~ If the cooktop is fitted with a communication module, in addition
to disconnecting the cooktop, this module must also be
disconnected from the mains electricity during installation and
maintenance of the cooktop as well as while any repair work is being
carried out.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Danger of electric shock.
Do not use the cooktop if it is faulty, or if the ceramic surface is
cracked, chipped or damaged in any way. Switch it off immediately,
and disconnect it from the mains electricity supply.
~ In areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or
other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the appliance and
its surroundings clean at all times. Any damage caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be covered by the warranty.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ Oil and fat can overheat and catch fire. Do not leave the
appliance unattended when cooking with oil or fat. If oil or fat does
catch fire, do not attempt to put out the flames with water.
Disconnect the appliance from the mains and use a suitable fire
blanket, saucepan lid, damp towel or similar to smother the flames.
~ Do not flambé under a rangehood. The flames could set the
rangehood on fire.
~ Spray canisters, aerosols and other inflammable substances can
ignite when heated. Therefore do not store such items or substances
in a drawer under the cooktop. Cutlery inserts must be
heat-resistant.
~ Do not heat an empty pan.
~ Do not heat up unopened tins of food on the cooktop, as
pressure will build up in the tin, causing it to explode.
~ Do not cover the cooktop, e.g. with a cooktop cover, a cloth or
protective foil. The material could catch fire, shatter or melt if the
appliance is switched on by mistake or if residual heat is still
present.
~ When using an electrical appliance, e.g. a hand-held food
blender, near the appliance, ensure that the cable of the electrical
appliance cannot come into contact with the hot appliance. The
insulation on the cable could become damaged,
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ If the appliance is installed behind a kitchen furniture door, it may
only be used with the furniture door open. Do not close the door
whilst the cooktop in use or whilst there is any residual heat present.
~ The appliance gets hot when in use and remains hot for a while
after being switched off. There is a danger of burning until the
residual heat indicators go out.
~ You could burn yourself on the hot cooktop. Protect your hands
with heat-resistant pot holders or gloves when handling hot pots and
pans. Do not let them get wet or damp, as this causes heat to
transfer through the material more quickly with the risk of scalding or
burning yourself.
~ When the appliance is switched on either deliberately or by
mistake, or when there is residual heat present, there is the risk of
any metal items left on the cooktop heating up, with the danger of
burning.
Depending on the material, other items left on the cooktop could
also melt or catch fire.
Damp pan lids might adhere to the ceramic surface and be difficult
to dislodge.
Do not use the appliance as a resting place.
Switch the cooking zones off after use.
~ Do not allow solid or liquid sugar, or pieces of plastic or
aluminium foil to get onto the cooking zones when they are hot, as
they can damage the ceramic surface when it cools down. If this
should occur, switch off the appliance and scrape off all the sugar,
plastic or aluminium residues from the cooktop whilst still hot using a
shielded scraper blade. Wear oven gloves.
Allow the cooking zones to cool down and then clean them with a
suitable ceramic cooktop cleaning agent.
~ Pans which boil dry can cause damage to the ceramic glass. Do
not leave the appliance unattended whilst it is being used.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not use pots or pans on the cooktop with bases with
pronounced edges or ridges. These could scratch or scour the
ceramic glass surface permanently. Only use pots and pans with
smooth bases.
~ Grains of salt, sugar and sand (e.g. from cleaning vegetables)
can cause scratches if they get under pan bases. Make sure that
the ceramic surface is clean before placing pans on it.
~ Even a light object could cause damage in certain
circumstances. Do not drop anything on the ceramic surface.
~ Do not place hot objects on the control field as this could cause
damage to the electronics underneath. Do not place hot pans on the
touch display.
~ Induction heating works extremely quickly, so the base of the pan
could heat up to the temperature at which oil or fat self-ignites within
a very short time. Do not leave the appliance unattended whilst it is
being used.
~ Heat oil or fat for a maximum of one minute. Do not use the
Booster function to heat oil or fat.
~ For people fitted with a heart pacemaker:
Please note that the area immediately surrounding the cooktop is
electromagnetically charged. It is unlikely to affect a pacemaker.
However, if in any doubt, consult the manufacturer of the pacemaker
or your doctor.
~ To prevent damage to items which are susceptible to magnetic
fields, e.g. credit cards, digital storage devices, pocket calculators,
etc, do not leave them in the immediate vicinity of the cooktop.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Metal utensils stored in a drawer under the cooktop can become
hot if the induction cooktop is used intensively for a long time. Do
not store any metal items or utensils in a drawer under the cooktop
~ This cooktop is fitted with a cooling fan. If a drawer is fitted
directly underneath the cooktop, ensure that there is sufficient space
between the drawer and its contents and the underside of the
appliance in order to ensure sufficient ventilation of the cooktop.
Do not store pointed or small items or paper in the drawer. They
could get in through the ventilation slots or be sucked into the
housing by the fan and damage the fan or impair cooling.
~ Do not use two pans on a cooking zone, extended zone or
combined PowerFlex zone at the same time.
Cleaning and care
~ Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this appliance.
The steam could reach electrical components and cause a short
circuit.
~ If the cooktop is built in over a pyrolitic oven, the cooktop should
not be used whilst the pyrolitic process is being carried out, as this
could trigger the overheating protection mechanism on the cooktop
(see relevant section).

which are environmentally friendly for
disposal and should be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances
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. If
handled or disposed of incorrectly they
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
Please do not dispose of your
appliance with household waste.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites. 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.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre or contact your Chartered Agent
for advice.
Ensure that it presents no danger to
children while being stored for
disposal.

Before using for the first time
Please stick the extra data plate for the appliance supplied
with this documentation in the space provided in the "After
sales service, data plate, warranty" section of this booklet.
Cleaning for the first time
^ Remove any protective wrapping and adhesive labels.
^ Before using for the first time, clean the appliance with a
damp cloth only and then wipe dry.
Before using for the first time
On cooktops with bevelled glass edges, a small gap may
be visible between the cooktop and the worktop during the
first few days after installation. This gap will reduce with
time as the appliance is used and will not affect the
electrical safety of your appliance.
The metal components have a protective coating which may
give off a slight smell when heated up for the first time. The
induction coils may also give off a slight smell for the first few
hours of operation. This smell will be less noticeable with
each subsequent use before dissipating completely.
The smell and any vapours given off do not indicate a faulty
connection or appliance and they are not hazardous to
health.
Please note that the heating up time on induction cooktops
is very much shorter than on conventional cooktops.
24
Induction
The induction principle
An induction coil is located under each cooking zone. When
a cooking zone is switched on, this coil creates a magnetic
field which impacts directly on the base of the pan and heats
it up. The cooking zone itself is heated up indirectly by the
heat given off by the pan.
An induction cooking zone only works when a ferromagnetic
pan is placed on it (see "Pans"). The induction cooking zone
automatically recognises the size of the pan
The numbers 1 to 9 on the numerical keypad concerned will
flash
– if it is switched on without a pan in place, or if the pan is
unsuitable (non-magnetic base),
– if the diameter of the base of the pan is too small,
– or if the pan is taken off the cooking zone when it is
switched on.
If a suitable pan is placed on the cooking zone within 3
minutes, the ß will go out and you can continue as normal.
If no pan or an unsuitable pan is placed on the cooking zone,
the cooking zone will switch off automatically after 3 minutes.
Danger of burning.
Do not use the cooktop as a resting place for metal items
(e.g. cutlery). When the appliance is switched on either
deliberately or by mistake, or when there is residual heat
present, there is the risk of the metal items heating up,
with the danger of burning.
Switch the cooktop off after use.
25
Induction
Noises
When using an induction cooking zone, the following noises
can occur in the pan, depending on what it is made of and
how it has been constructed.
– On the higher power levels, it might buzz. This will
decrease or cease altogether when the power level is
reduced.
– If the pan base is made of layers of different materials (e.g.
in a sandwiched base), it might emit a cracking sound.
– Whistling might occur if linked zones (see "Booster") are
being used at the same time, and the pans also have
bases made of layers of different materials.
– You might hear a clicking sound from the electronic
switches, especially on lower power levels.
– You might hear a whirring sound when the cooling fan
switches on. It switches on to protect the electronics when
the cooktop is being used intensively. The fan may
continue to run after the appliance has been switched off.
26
Induction
Pans
Suitable pans include:
– stainless steel pans with a magnetic base
– enamelled steel pans
– cast iron pans
Unsuitable pans:
– stainless steel pans without a magnetic base
– aluminium and copper pans
– glass, ceramic or earthenware pots and pans
To test whether a pot or pan is suitable for use on an
induction cooktop, hold a magnet to the base of the pan. If
the magnet sticks, the pan is suitable.
Please be aware that the properties of the pan base can
affect the eveness with which food heats up in the pan.
To make optimum use of the cooking zones, choose pans
with diameters larger than the innermost markings but smaller
than the outermost markings. If the diameter of the pan is
smaller than the innermost marking, the induction heating will
not work. The zone will behave as if it had no pan on it.
Often the maximum diameter quoted by manufacturers refers
to the diameter of the top rim of the pot or pan. The diameter
of the base (generally smaller) is more important.
Danger of burning. Make sure that pans are placed
centrally on the cooking zone. If a pan is placed only
partially on a zone, there is a risk that the handle could get
very hot.

These settings should only be taken as a guide.
The power of the induction coils will vary depending on the size and material of
the pan. For this reason it is possible that the settings will need to be adjusted
slightly to suit your pans. As you use the cooktop, you will get to know which
settings suit your pans best.
28
Operation
How the cooktop is operated
The cooktop is equipped with electronic sensor controls
which react to finger contact.
When the cooktop is switched off only the symbols for the
sensors for switching the cooktop on and off and the safety
lock are visible.
When the cooktop is switched on all the other sensors light
up as well. On each of the numerical keypads, "0" lights up at
brightness level 2, and numbers 1-9 at brightness level 1.
If a power level is selected, the numbers from "0" to the level
set will light up in brightness level 2.
If the booster or keeping warm function is selected, the
relevant sensor will light up at brightness level 2.
To operate the cooktop, touch the relevant sensor. Each time
you touch a sensor, an audible tone sounds.
Take care to keep the control panel clean and do not
place anything on top of it. The sensors may fail to react or
they could mistake the article or any dirt for a fingertip
contact, thereby activating a function or even causing the
cooktop to switch off automatically (see " Safety
switch-off"). Do not place hot pans on the sensors. The
electronic unit underneath could get damaged.
29
Operation
Fire hazard!
Do not leave the appliance unattended whilst it is being

are controlled by the rear or left Powerflex cooking zone and
the other numerical keypad goes out, except for the symbol y
which remains lit.
Activating/deactivating
^ Touch the y sensor.
31
Operation
Auto heat-up
When Auto heat-up has been activated, the cooking zone
switches on automatically at the highest power setting and
then switches to the continued cooking setting selected. The
heat-up time depends on which continued cooking setting
has been chosen (see chart).
Activating
^ Touch the number of the continued cooking setting you
require until a tone sounds and the continued cooking
setting selected starts flashing.
The continued cooking setting selected will flash during the
heat-up time.
If the range of power levels/settings has been extended (see
"Programming") and one of the intermediate continued
cooking settings has been selected (e.g. 3+) the power level
before and after the intermediate setting will flash (e.g. 3 and
4).
Altering the continued cooking setting will deactivate auto
heat-up.
Deactivating

33
Operation
Booster function
The cooking zones are equipped with a Booster or
TwinBooster (see "Guide to the appliance").
When activated, the power is boosted for a maximum of 15
minutes so that large quantities can be heated up quickly,
e.g. when boiling water for cooking pasta.
The booster function can only be used on two cooking zones
at the same time.
If the Booster function is switched on when
– no setting has been selected, the cooking zone will revert
automatically to setting 9 at the end of the booster time or if
the booster function is switched off before this.
– a setting has been selected, the cooking zone will revert
automatically to the setting selected at the end of the
booster time or if the booster function is switched off
before this.
Taking a pan off the zone whilst the booster is in operation
interrupts the booster function, but not the total Booster time
of 15 minutes.
Cooking zones are networked in pairs to supply power for the
Booster function.
When the Booster function is selected a proportion of energy
is taken away from the linked cooking zone. the following
happens within the pairs:
- Auto heat-up is deactivated
- The power level is reduced
- The linked cooking zone is switched off.
34
Operation
Whilst the booster is switched on, the B sensor and all of the
numbers in the relevant numerical keypad are lit up at
brightness level 2.
To switch on the Booster
^ Touch the "0" on the numerical keypad of the cooking zone
you wish to use.
^ Select a power level if you wish.
^ Touch the B sensor.
To switch on the TwinBooster
Level 1
^ Touch the "0" on the numerical keypad of the cooking zone
you wish to use.
^ Select a power level if you wish.
^ Touch the B sensor.
The indicator light for TwinBooster level 1 ¤ lights up.
Level 2
^ Touch the "0" on the numerical keypad of the cooking zone
you wish to use.
^ Select a power level if you wish.
^ Touch the B sensor twice.
The indicator light for TwinBooster level 2 ¥ lights up.
To switch off the Booster/TwinBooster
^ Touch the B sensor
- once (for the Booster)
- repeatedly until the indicator lights go out
(for the TwinBooster).
or
^ select a different power level.
35
Operation
Keeping warm function
Some cooking zones have a keeping warm function.
This function is for keeping food that has just been cooked
warm, i.e. food that is still hot. It is not for reheating food
that has gone cold.
If the keeping warm function has been activated, the cooking
zone will switch off automatically after a maximum of 2 hours.
To switch the keeping warm function on/off
^ Touch the 2 sensor for selecting the cooking zone you
want.
Useful tips
– Only use pans for keeping food warm. Cover the pan with
a lid.
– You do not have to stir food while it is being kept warm.
– Nutrients are lost when food is cooked, and this will
continue when food is kept warm. The longer food is kept
warm for, the greater the loss of nutrients. Try to ensure
that food is kept warm for as short a time as possible.
36
Operation
Switching off and residual heat indicators
Switching off a cooking zone
^ Touch the "0" on the numerical keypad of the cooking zone
you wish to use.
The numbers 1 to 9 will go out after a few seconds. If the
cooking zone is still hot, residual heat will then be indicated in
the display.
Switching off the cooktop
^ Touch the s sensor.
This switches off all cooking zones. All the sensors will go out.
Residual heat indicator
If there is any residual heat, the numbers 1 to 9 in the
numerical keypads will go out after a few seconds. The
residual heat indicator will appear in the display of any
cooking zone which is still hot.
The lines of the residual heat indicator go out one after
another as the cooking zone cools down. The "0" will go out at
the same time as the last line.
Danger of burning and fire hazard.
Do not touch the cooking zones whilst the residual heat
indicators are lit up.
37
Tips on saving energy
– Use a pan lid whenever possible to minimise heat loss.
uncovered
covered
– Select a smaller pan when cooking small quantities. A
smaller pan uses less energy than a larger pan with very
little in it.
– Cook with as little water as possible.
– Once food has come to the boil or the oil in the pan is hot
enough for frying, reduce the heat to a lower setting.
– Cooking times are greatly reduced when using a pressure
cooker.
38
Timer
The cooktop must be switched on to use the timer.
The timer can be used for two different functions:
– to set the minute minder
– to set a cooking zone to switch off automatically.
You can select a time from 1 minute (01) to 9 hours (9^).
A time of up to 99 minutes is set and displayed in minutes.
Example:
To set a time of more than 99 minutes, the timer must be set
to hours (h). The time is then set in half hour stages. The half
hour is indicated by a dot after the number.
Example (2 h 30 min):

To switch a cooking zone off automatically
You can set a time at the end of which a cooking zone will
switch off automatically.
All the cooking zones can be programmed at the same time.
If the time programmed is longer than the maximum
operational time allowed, the cooking zone will switch off
after the maximum time allowed (see "Safety switch-off").
^ Select a power level for the cooking zone you require.
^ Touch the m sensor repeatedly until the indicator light for
this cooking zone flashes.
If more than one cooking zone is switched on, the indicator
lights will flash clockwise beginning with the front left zone.
^ Set the time you want.
The time set will then count down in minutes. The time
remaining will be shown in the timer display. You can change
this at any time.
If you want to set another cooking zone to switch off
automatically, follow the same steps as described above.
If more than one switch-off time is programmed, the shortest
time remaining will show in the display, and the
corresponding indicator light will flash. All the other indicator
lights will light up constantly. If you want to check on the time
remaining for another zone, touch the m sensor repeatedly
until the indicator light for the zone you require flashes.
43
Timer
To use both timer functions at the same time
The minute minder and automatic switch-off functions can be
used at the same time.
If you have programmed in one or more switch-off times, and
would like to use the minute minder as well:

48
Safety features
Overheating protection
All the induction coils and the cooling elements for the
electronics are fitted with an overheating protection
mechanism. Before the induction coils or cooling elements
get too hot, the overheating protection mechanism cuts in in
one of the following ways:
Induction coils
– If the booster function is being used, this will be switched
off.
– The power level will be reduced.
– The cooking zone will switch off automatically.
"FE" will flash in the timer display alternately with "44".
You will be able to use the cooking zones again as usual
when the fault code has gone out.
Cooling elements
– If the booster function is being used, this will be switched
off.
– The power level will be reduced.
– The cooking zones will switch off automatically.
The affected cooking zones can only be used again as usual
once the cooling element has cooled down to a safe level.
The overheating mechanism can be triggered by:
– Heating up an empty pan.
– Fat or oil being heated up on a high power level.
– Insufficient ventilation to the underside of the appliance.
– A hot cooking zone being switched on after a power cut.
If the overheating protection mechanism triggers again,
contact the Service department.
49
Cleaning and care
Danger of injury.
Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this
appliance. The steam could reach electrical components
and cause a short circuit.
The appliance should be cleaned after each use. Let it cool
down to room temperature before cleaning.
To avoid water marks and limescale deposits, use a soft cloth
to dry the appliance after cleaning.
To avoid damaging the surface of your appliance, do not
use:
– washing-up liquid,
– 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, or
sponges which have been previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents,
– melamine eraser blocks,
– sharp, pointed objects which could damage the seal
between the ceramic surface and the surrounding frame,
and between the frame and the worktop.
50
Cleaning and care
Do not use washing-up liquid to clean the ceramic surface.
Washing-up liquid will not remove all soiling and deposits.
It will form an invisible coating which will cause permanent
discolouration of the ceramic surface.
Clean the cooktop regularly with a suitable ceramic
cooktop cleaning agent.
Wipe off all coarse soiling using a damp cloth. Stubborn
soiling may need to be removed with a shielded scraper
blade.
Then clean the cooktop with the Original Miele ceramic and
stainless steel cooktop cleaner (see "Optional accessories")
applied with kitchen paper or a clean cloth. Do not apply
cleaner whilst the appliance is still hot, as this could result in
marking. Please follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Finally wipe the cooktop with a damp cloth, then dry with a
soft, dry cloth. Residues can burn onto the appliance the next
time it is used, and cause damage to the ceramic surface.
Ensure that all cleaning agent residues are removed.
Spots caused by limescale, water and aluminium residues
(spots with a metallic appearance) can be removed using the
Original Miele ceramic and stainless steel cooktop cleaner.
Danger of burning.
Protect your hands with oven gloves before using a
shielded scraper blade to remove sugar, plastic or
aluminium residues from the hot cooktop.
Should any sugar, plastic or aluminium foil spill or fall onto
a hot cooking zone while it is in use, first switch off the
appliance. Then carefully scrape off all the sugar, plastic or
aluminium residues from the cooktop immediately whilst they
are still hot, using a shielded scraper blade.
Allow the appliance to cool down and then clean as
described above.
51
Programming
You can change the default settings of the programme
options (see chart). Several settings can be altered in
succession.
After selecting programming mode, P (Programme) and S
(Status) will appear in the timer display. On cooktops with 3
cooking zones, an additional indicator will appear at the rear
left.
The programme is shown in the numerical keypad displays at
the front left and rear left. Example:
Programme 3 = front left 3, rear left 0
Programme 14 = front left 4, rear left 1
The status is shown in the numerical keypad display at the
rear right.
Once you have left the programming mode, the cooktop will
be reset automatically. This is completed when an indicator
above the s sensor lights up briefly.
Do not switch the cooktop on again until the reset process
is completed.
To call up programming mode
^ With the cooktop switched off, touch the s and $ sensors
at the same time until the safety lock indicator light
flashes.
To set the programme setting

Cooktop with frame or bevelled edge
Installation notes
Tiled worktop
Seal between the cooktop and the
worktop
The sealing strip under the edge of the
top part of the appliance provides a
sufficient seal for the worktop.
Do not use sealant between the
cooktop and the worktop. This could
result in damage to the cooktop or
the worktop if the cooktop ever
needs to be removed for servicing.
Grout lines a and the hatched area
underneath the cooktop frame must be
smooth and even. If they are not the
cooktop will not sit flush with the
worktop and the sealing strip
underneath the cooktop will not provide
a good seal between the cooktop and
the worktop.
Tiled worktops must be a minimum of 5
mm thick to ensure the surface
temperatures of the combustible
surfaces underneath the tiles do not
exceed 50 K above ambient.

Installing the cooktop
Preparing the worktop
^ Feed the mains connection cable
down through the cut-out.
^ Make the worktop cut-out according
to the dimensions given in the
building-in diagram. Remember to
maintain the minimum safety
distances (see "Safety instructions
for installation").
^ Seal the cut surfaces with a suitable
heat-resistant sealant to avoid
swelling caused by moisture.
Make sure that the sealant does not
come into contact with the top of the
worktop.
No spring clamps are needed to
install the cooktop. The seal
underneath the cooktop will hold it
securely on the worktop.
Any gap between the frame and
worktop will reduce with time.
^ Place the cooktop centrally in the
cut-out. When doing this, make sure
that the seal under the cooktop sits
flush with the worktop on all sides.
This is important to ensure an
effective seal all round.
Do not use sealant (e.g. silicone).
If the seal does not meet the worktop
correctly on the corners the corner
radius (ß R4) can be carefully
scribed to suit.
^ Connect the cooktop to the mains.
^ Check that the cooktop works.
Connecting the mains cable to the
appliance
The mains cable must only be
connected to the appliance by a
qualified and competent electrician
in strict accordance with current
local and national safety regulations.
^ Follow the instructions in the wiring
diagram (see "Electrical connection Wiring diagram").

any other material, please check
first with the worktop manufacturer
that it is suitable for installing a flush
fit cooktop.
Certain models are suitable for
building into glass worktops - please
see advice under "Building-in
dimensions".
The internal width of the base unit
must be at least as wide as the
internal cut-out width for the cooktop
(see "Building-in dimensions"). This
is to ensure that the casing can be
easily removed for maintenance.
If the underside of the cooktop is not
freely accessible after installation,
any sealant used to plug the gaps
around the appliance must be
removed to enable the cooktop to
be lifted out of the cut-out should
this be necessary.
76
The cooktop can be installed
