Building in and connection
~ The connection to the gas supply
must be carried out by a suitably
qualified and competent person in
accordance with local and national
safety regulations, e.g. a registered gas
fitter. If the appliance is supplied
without a plug, or if the plug is removed
the appliance must additionally be
installed and connected by a suitably
qualified and competent electrician in
strict accordance with national and
local regulations. The manufacturer
cannot be held responsible for damage
caused by incorrect installation or
connection.
~ The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it
and an effective earthing system which
complies with local and national safety
regulations. It is most important that this
basic safety requirement is present and
tested regularly, and where there is any
doubt, the household wiring system
should be inspected by a qualified
electrician. The manufacturer cannot be
held liable for the consequences of an
inadequate earthing system (e.g.
electric shock).
~ 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.
~ Do not connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply by an extension
lead. Extension leads do not guarantee
the required safety of the appliance.
~ This appliance must not be installed
and used in mobile installations (e.g.
ships, caravans etc.).
~ Do not modify this appliance.

built in. This is necessary to ensure that
all electric components are shielded.
~ This appliance is for domestic use
only, and is not intended for
commercial use.
~ Use this appliance for the
preparation of food only. Any other
usage is at the owner's risk and could
be dangerous. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for damage
caused by incorrect or improper use of
the appliance.
~ Do not use the appliance to heat up
the room. The high temperature could
cause inflammable objects nearby to
catch fire.
~ Using the gas cooktop can cause
heat and moisture to build up in the
kitchen. Ensure that the room is well
ventilated; open a door or window or
provide a mechanical means of
ventilation, by installing a rangehood,
for example.
~ 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.
~ This appliance must not be set up or
operated in the open air.
8
~ Make sure all the components of the

Otherwise flames could be drawn up by
the suction of the rangehood, parts of
which could then be damaged or even
set on fire.
~ Pans must be the correct size for the
burner they are used on (see "Suitable
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.
~ Do not use or store flammable
materials in the appliance storage
drawer or near this appliance.

circumstances.
10
Stainless steel surfaces:
~ Avoid allowing liquids or foods
containing salt to spill onto a stainless
steel cooktop or trim. If salty foods or
liquids do get on the cooktop, they
should be removed as soon as possible
to avoid the risk of corrosion.
~ Replace the pan supports carefully
to avoid scratching the surface.
Warning and Safety instructions
Protection from burning and
scalding
~ Remove splashes of fat and other
food debris from the surface as soon as
possible. These are a fire hazard.
~ The surface of the appliance gets
hot when in use, and remains hot for
quite a while after being switched off.
Do not touch it whilst it is still hot.
~ Never leave the appliance
~ Use heat-resistant pot holders or
gloves when handling hot pots and
pans. 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 pot holders or
gloves get damp or wet, as this causes
heat to transfer through the material
quicker with the risk of burning yourself.
~ If, despite this, oil or fat does catch
~ Do not heat up unopened tins of
food on the cooktop as pressure will
build up in the tin and it can explode.
This could result in injury or damage.
~ Do not use the cooktop as a resting
place for anything else. If the cooktop
was switched on inadvertently, or if it
was still hot the article could begin to
melt or catch fire.

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.
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 flambé under a rangehood.
The flames could set the rangehood on
fire.
~ Ensure that the flames from the
burner do not spread out beyond the
base and up the sides of the pan.
~ Do not spray aerosols in the vicinity
of this appliance while it is in operation.
~ Do not cover the cooktop with a
cloth, household foils or other similar
objects. This could lead to danger of
the article catching fire, if the cooktop
were to be switched on inadvertently.

Warning and Safety instructions
With a damaged appliance
Further safety notes
~ 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. Contact Miele.
Ensure that the appliance is
disconnected from the electricity
supply before any servicing or repair
work.
~ When using an electrical appliance,
~ Ceramic cooktops:
Any breakages or cracks in the ceramic
surface of the cooktop are defects and
must be treated as such.
~ Repairs to the gas and electrical
components of this appliance must only
be carried out by a suitably qualified
person. Repairs by unauthorised
personnel could be dangerous. On no
account open the outer casing of the
appliance.
~ While the appliance is under
guarantee repairs should only be
undertaken by a service engineer
authorised by the manufacturer.
Otherwise the guarantee is invalidated.
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.
~ Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated. Many
factors will affect the overall cooking
time, including the size and amount of
food and its temperature. Some foods
may contain micro-organisms which are
only destroyed by thorough cooking;
therefore when cooking or reheating
foods 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 plastic or aluminium foil
containers. These melt at high
temperatures and could damage the
ceramic surface. Fire hazard.
~ If the appliance has not been used
for a longer 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.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these safety
instructions.

Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packaging
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. Please do
not therefore dispose of your old
machine or appliance with your
household waste.
Packaging (e.g. cling film, polystyrene)
and plastic wrappings must be kept out
of the reach of babies and young
children. Danger of suffocation.
Dispose of or recycle all packaging
materials as soon as possible.
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 it to
prevent misuse.
13
Before using for the first time
General notes
A data plate for your appliance is
supplied with this documentation. It
should be stuck into the space
provided at the end of the instruction
book. The address of your nearest
Miele office is given on the back page.
Cleaning and heating up for
the first time
Before using for the first time clean the
cooktop and all removable parts as
follows:
^ The removable parts of the gas
burner assembly can be washed in a
mild solution of water and
washing-up liquid. Wipe dry and
reassemble in the correct order (see
"Cleaning and care").
^ Clean the cooktop with a damp cloth
only, and then wipe dry.
Do not use washing up liquid to
clean the ceramic surface as it can
leave a blue sheen which may be
difficult to remove.
Metal components have a protective
coating which may give off a slight
smell when the cooktop is 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.
14
Using the gas cooktop
Switching on, controlling,
switching off
The control knobs are used to switch on
the burner and regulate the strength of
the 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 can damage
components in the appliance:
- Trying to switch on a burner
without pressing in the control.
- Switching on a burner by
turning it clockwise.
- Switching off a burner by
turning it anti-clockwise,
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for this type of damage.
ß the gas supply is turned off
& strong flame
/ weak flame
Switching on:
^ The control knob for the burner
required must be pressed in and
turned anti-clockwise to the large
flame symbol to switch on.
^ When the flame ignites, keep the
control pressed in for 8-10 seconds,
and then let it go.
If the flame goes out, repeat the
procedure, keeping the control knob
pressed in for a few extra seconds.
15
Using the gas cooktop
Controling:
Switching off:
^ When the flame burns steady after
releasing the knob, select a setting
between the large and the small
flame symbol. The flame gets
smaller, when you turn the control
knob anti-clockwise and bigger when
turning clockwise. You don’t need to
press the knob.
^ Turn the knob clockwise until the ß
position is reached.
^ 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 burning.
16
This stops the flow of gas and the flame
goes out.

– Pans with thick bases are preferable
as these distribute heat more evenly,
and therefore lessen the risk of heat
spots occurring which can cause
food to stick or burn. With thin bases
heat is conducted quickly to the
food, however there is a danger of
food heating up unevenly and too
quickly increasing the risk of burning.
Stir the food frequently.

– You should select pans which are
suitable for the burner they are to be
used on. In general: use larger
diameter pans on the large burner
and smaller diameter pans on the
small burner.
– Wide, shallow pans are preferable to
tall, narrow ones. They will heat up
faster.
– 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 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.
– Use a pan lid whenever possible to
minimise heat loss.
17
Using the gas cooktop
Safety cut-out
Use during a power cut
This appliance is fitted with an electric
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.
If there is an interruption to the
electricity supply the gas can be
ignited with a match:
^ To use the cooktop again, turn the
knob clockwise until the "ß" position
is reached and switch on as normal.
The safety cut-out operates
independently from the electricity
supply. This means that it is still active
when the cooktop is used during a
power cut (see "Use during a power
cut").
18
^ Press in the relevant control knob
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 knob pressed in for
a further 8-10 seconds and then
release it.
Cleaning and care
General
Pan support, Control knobs
Clean the appliance regularly,
preferably after each use. Allow it to
cool sufficiently.
Take off the pan supports.
Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
this appliance. The steam could
reach electrical components and
cause a short circuit. Pressurised
steam could also cause permanent
damage to the surface and to other
components, for which the
manufacturer cannot accept liability.
Clean these and the control knobs with
a damp cloth, washing up liquid and
warm water. Stubborn soiling is best
soaked before.
Finally dry everything with a clean soft
cloth.
On stainless steel models:
Replace the pan supports carefully
to avoid scratching the surface.
Do not use any sharp objects which
could damage the seal between the
ceramic surface and the
surrounding frame and between the
frame and the worktop.
Do not use any of the following on
your cooktop as they can damage
the surface material:
cleaning agents containing sand,
soda, alkalines, acids or chlorides,
grill and ovensprays, dishwasher
detergent, stain or rust removers,
scouring agents or cream cleaners,
abrasive sponges and brushes
Do not let the ignitor in the burner
get wet. It it gets wet it will not spark.
After cleaning the cooktop it must
be thoroughly dried with a soft cloth
to prevent a build up of limescale
deposits.
19
Cleaning and care
Cooktop surface
Stainless steel
Clean the cooktop surface with a
sponge and a mild solution of warm
water and washing up liquid. Soak
baked or hardened spills.
Dry the cooktop surface thoroughly
after cleaning.
The stainless steel surface of the
cooktop can be cleaned using a
proprietary non-abrasive cleaning
agent designed for use on stainless
steel surfaces. Apply with an even

Please contact Miele for information on
the appropriate cleaning product.
Thoroughly remove salty foods or
liquids from the cooktop as soon as
possible to avoid the risk of
corrosion.
Ceramic surface
Wipe soiling off using a damp cloth.
Stubborn soiling is best removed with a
shielded scraper blade.
Then apply a proprietary cleaning
agent for ceramic surfaces using a soft
cloth or kitchen paper towel. This way
any limescale deposits, caused for
example by water boiling over, are
removed.
Finally wipe the cooktop surface with a
damp cloth and then dry it with a clean
soft cloth.
Note that some cleaning agents contain
a protective additive designed to
prevent water marks and smears
adhering to the surface.
Do not use washing up liquid on the
ceramic surface as it can leave a
blue sheen which may be difficult to
remove.
When using a cleaner for ceramic
surfaces follow the manufacturer’s
instructions on the packaging.
