11
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ The appliance gets hot when in use
and remains hot for quite a while after
being switched off. Do not touch it
whilst it could still be hot.
~ When using a rangehood above the
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 leave the cooktop
unattended whilst it is being used.
Boiling fat or oil could ignite and cause
a fire.
~ If 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 the appliance to heat up
the room. Due to the high temperatures
radiated, objects near the appliance
could catch fire. The life of the
appliance could also be reduced.
~ For added protection, it is advisable
to use heat-resistant pot holders or
gloves when using the appliance.
Ensure that they do not come into
contact with the flames. Do not use
large cloths, tea towels or similar as the
ends could touch the flames and catch
fire.
Take care not to let these items get
damp or wet as this causes heat to
transfer through the material more
quickly with the risk of scalding or
burning yourself.
12
~ Do not flambé under a rangehood.
The flames could set the rangehood on
fire.
~ Do not drop anything on the ceramic
surface. Even a light object could
cause damage in certain
circumstances.
~ 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.
~ Do not cover the appliance, e.g.
with a covering plate, a cloth, kitchen
foil, etc. If the appliance is switched on
by mistake, or if there is residual heat
present, these materials may catch fire,
shatter or melt.
~ Do not use plastic or aluminium foil
containers on the cooktop. These melt
at high temperatures and could catch
fire.
~ Do not heat up unopened tins of
food on the cooktop, as pressure will
build up in the tin, causing it to
explode. This could result in injury and
scalding or damage.
~ Make sure all the components of the
gas burners have been correctly
assembled before switching on.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Pans must be the correct size for the
burner they are used on (see "Pots &
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.
~ 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 supports
supplied. Never place a pot or pan on
the burner itself.
~ Do not store any inflammable
objects near the gas cooktop.
~ 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.
~ Using the cooktop creates heat,
moisture and products of combustion
within the room in which it is located. It
is important to make sure the room is
sufficiently ventilated during operation
of the cooktop with natural or
mechanical means of ventilation, e.g. a
rangehood.
~ 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 rangehood on the highest setting.
~ When using an electrical appliance,
e.g. a hand-held mixer, near the gas
cooktop, ensure that the connection
cable doesn't come into contact with
the hot cooktop. The insulation on the
cable could become damaged, giving
rise to an electric shock hazard.
~ Do not use or store flammable
materials in the appliance storage
drawer or near this appliance. Cutlery
inserts must be heat-resistant.
~ Do not spray aerosols in the vicinity
of this appliance while it is in operation.
~ Do not use pans that are large
enough to cover more than one burner.
The resulting build-up of heat could
damage the appliance.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
~ If the cooktop is built-in behind a
furniture door, it must only be operated
when the door is open.
Close the furniture door only once the
appliance has been switched off and
the residual heat indicators have gone
out.
~ 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 by a qualified person
for safety.
Miele cannot be held liable for
damage caused by non-compliance
with these Warning and Safety
instructions.
14
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 or
disconnected from the mains electricity
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.
15
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" section of this booklet.
Cleaning for the first time
^ Remove any protective foil and sticky labels.
^ Clean all removable parts of the burners with a solution of
warm water and a little washing-up liquid applied with a
soft sponge. Dry all parts thoroughly after cleaning and
then reassemble the burners (see "Cleaning and care").
^ Before using for the first time, clean the appliance with a
damp cloth only 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 given off do not indicate a faulty
connection or appliance, and neither are they hazardous to
health.
16

17
Operation
Switching on
^ To ignite the burner, press the control knob down and turn
it anti-clockwise to the largest flame symbol.
When a control knob is activated, a spark is generated on
all burners. This is not a fault.
^ When the flame ignites, keep the control pressed in for
5-10 seconds, and then let it go.
^ Should the flame be extinguished earlier, turn the control
knob to "ß". Wait at least 1 minute before trying 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.
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
largest 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 5-10 seconds and
then release it.
18
Operation
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.
The burners can be regulated at any level between the
strongest and weakest flame.
^ To move from the high to the low setting, turn the control
anti-clockwise until it meets a resistance. 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. 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.
Do not turn the control knob clockwise past "ß".

– Refer to the chart above and ensure that the pot/pan
diameter falls within the minimum and maximum diameters
given for the burner you are using. A pot/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.
– Remember when purchasing new pots and pans that
manufacturers usually refer to the diameter at the top of the
pan in their documentation.
– Any heat-resistant pots and pans can be used on a gas
burner.
– 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.
– Select pots and pans which are suitable for the burner they
are to be used on. In general: use larger diameter pans on
large burners, and smaller diameter pans on small burners.
– The pan support supplied with the appliance must always
be used. Never place a pot or pan on the burner itself.
– Position the pan centrally on the pan support so that it sits
securely and cannot tip up. A little movement is quite
normal and not a cause for concern.
– Do not use pots or pans with base supports.
20
Pots & Pans
Combi insert
The combi insert must be used if you wish to use a pot or
pan with a smaller diameter base than the minimum given in
the table. It ensures pots and pans sit securely on the
cooktop and cannot tip over.
Wok ring
Use the wok ring to give additional stability, especially to
woks with a rounded base.
Make sure that the wok ring is located securely in its correct
position.
Woks are different from other pots and pans. Woks have a
small base diameter and large top diameter, generally
between 35 - 40 cm. When using a wok, place it on the wok
burner.
21
Energy-saving tips
– Use a lid whenever possible to minimise heat loss.
– Cook with as little water as possible.
– Cooking times can be significantly reduced with a
pressure cooker.
– Reduce the power setting once the water has come to the
boil or the oil is hot enough to fry in.
– Wide, shallow pans are preferable to tall, narrow ones as
they will heat up faster.
22
Safety features
Thermo-electric ignition
This appliance has a thermo-electric ignition safety device. If
the flame goes out, for example if food has boiled over or if
there is a sudden draught, and automatic re-ignition has
been unsuccessful, the supply of gas to the burner will be cut
off.
^ 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 (see "Use during a power cut").
23
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.
– Remove any soiling immediately. Food that has boiled
over can cause discolouration of the burner parts.
– The surfaces of the burner components and pan supports
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).

Cleaning and care
Ceramic surface
Cleaning
Notes
Remove all large soiling with a damp cloth and use
a glass scraper at a 90° angle to remove stubborn
soiling.
Using washing-up liquid will
not remove all soiling and
an invisible film will be left
behind which will result in a
permanent discolouration of
the ceramic surface.
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 the cleaner while the cooktop is still
hot as spots may appear.
After cleaning, wipe the cooktop surface with a
damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth.
When using ceramic
cooktop cleaning agents,
please follow the
instructions on the
packaging.
Pan supports
Remove the pan supports.
Clean in a dishwasher or use a sponge and a little
washing-up liquid with warm water.
If necessary, the reverse side of a non-scratching
washing-up sponge can be used.
Control knobs
Clean with a microfibre cloth or with a solution of
warm water and a little washing-up liquid applied
with a soft sponge.
Not dishwasher safe.
Burners
All removable parts should be removed.
Then clean these by hand using a solution of warm
water and a little washing-up liquid applied with a
soft sponge.
Parts of the burner that cannot be removed should
be wiped clean with a damp cloth only.
Not dishwasher safe.
Wipe carefully with a well wrung out cloth.
Do not let the ignitor get
wet. If it gets wet, it will not
spark.

Safety instructions for installation
Fit the wall units and rangehood
before fitting the cooktop to avoid
damaging the surface.
~ 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.
~ This appliance must not be installed
and used in mobile installations such as
ships etc.
~ 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.
~ 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.
30
~ Do not use any joint sealant, unless
it is expressly stated to do so by the
manufacturer. The appliance's sealing
strip ensures a sufficient seal between
the appliance and the worktop.
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
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).
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, e.g. a gas cooktop and
an electric cooktop, which have
different safety clearances given in
the installation instructions, you
should select the greater clearance
of the two.

31
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
^ Make the worktop cut-out for one or
more appliances as applicable.
Remember to maintain a minimum
safety distance (see "Safety
instructions for installation").
^ Seal the cut surfaces with a suitable
heat-resistant sealant to avoid
swelling caused by moisture.
Make sure these materials do not
come into contact with the surface of
the worktop.
^ Feed the connection cable down
through the cut-out.
^ Place the cooktop in the cut-out
without securing it.
If, during installation, you find that the
seals on the corners are not flush
with the worktop, the corner radii ß
R4, can be carefully scribed to fit.
^ Secure the appliance using the
brackets a supplied.
After installation
Ignite all the burners to check that they
are operating correctly.
^ Connect the cooktop to the mains
(see "Electrical connection").
The flame must not go out on the lowest
setting, or when the control is turned
quickly from the highest to the lowest
setting.
^ Connect the appliance to the gas
supply (see "Gas connection").
On the highest setting, the flame must
have a distinctive and visible core.
34
Installation
Sealant
The sealing strip under the edge of 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.
Tiled 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.
35
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 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
