9
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before installation, check the
appliance for visible signs of damage.
Do not install and use a damaged
appliance. A damaged appliance is
dangerous.
~ 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
regularly tested, 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).
~ Before connecting the appliance,
make sure that the connection data on
the data plate (voltage and connected
load) match the mains electricity
supply.
This data must correspond in order to
avoid the risk of damage to the
appliance. Consult a qualified
electrician if in any doubt.
~ For safety reasons, this appliance
may only be used after it has been built
in.
~ Never open the housing of the
appliance.
Tampering with electrical connections
or components and mechanical parts is
highly dangerous to the user and can
cause operational faults.
10
~ Installation, maintenance and
repairs may only be carried out by a
suitably qualified and competent
person in strict accordance with current
national and local safety regulations.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work.
~ During installation, maintenance and
repair work, the appliance must be
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply. 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and the plug is withdrawn from the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.
~ While the appliance is under
guarantee, repairs should only be
undertaken by a service technician
authorised by the manufacturer.
Otherwise the guarantee is invalidated.
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. The manufacturer can only
guarantee the safety of the appliance
when Miele replacement parts are
used.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ If the connection cable is damaged,
it must be replaced by a suitably
qualified electrician with a specialist
connection cable of type H 05 VV-F
(pvc insulated), available from the Miele
Spare Parts Department.
~ Do not connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket unit or an extension lead.
These do not guarantee the required
safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of
overheating).
~ This appliance is not intended to be
operated by means of an external timer
or separate remote control-system.
~ Do not use the cooktop if it is faulty,
or if the ceramic surface is cracked,
chipped or damaged in any way.

disconnect it from the mains electricity
supply. Danger of electric shock.
~ In areas which may be subject to
infestation by cockroaches or other
vermin, pay particular attention to
keeping the appliance and its
surroundings in a clean condition at all
times. Any damage caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the guarantee.
Correct use
~ The appliance gets hot when in use
and remains hot for quite a while after
being switched off. There is a danger of
burning until the residual heat
indicators go out.
~ Do not leave the appliance
unattended whilst it is in use.
Pans that have boiled dry can cause
damage to the ceramic surface for
which the manufacturer cannot be held
liable.
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.
~ During prolonged or intensive use of
the appliance, the frame gets hot and
the control panel can also become
quite warm. This is quite normal and
does not indicate a fault.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ For added protection, it is advisable
to use heat-resistant pot holders or
gloves when using the appliance. Do
not let them get damp or wet, as this
causes heat to transfer through the
material more quickly with the risk of
scalding or burning yourself.
~ Do not flambé under a rangehood.
The flames could set the rangehood on
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.
~ Do not use pots and pans on the
ceramic cooktop with bases with
pronounced edges or ridges, e.g. cast
iron pans. These could scratch or scour
the cooktop surface permanently.
~ Do not use the appliance as a
resting place for anything else. When
the appliance is switched on either
deliberately or by mistake, or when
there is residual heat present, there is
the risk of metal objects heating up,
with a danger of burning.
Depending on the material, other
objects left on the cooktop could also
melt or catch fire.
Damp pan lids might adhere to the
ceramic surface and be difficult to
dislodge.
Switch the cooking zones off after use.
~ Do not use cookware with an

containers. These melt at high
temperatures, and could catch fire.
exposed copper or aluminium base as
they may leave permanent visual marks
on the ceramic surface.
~ Never heat an empty pan unless the
manufacturer of the pan expressly
states that you can do so. This could
damage the appliance.
~ Keep the cooktop clean. Grains of
salt, sugar and sand (e.g. from
cleaning vegetables) can cause
scratches.
~ Never place hot pans on the area
~ Do not drop anything on the ceramic
surface. Even a light object could
cause damage in certain
circumstances.
~ To prevent the risk of spillages etc.
burning on, remove any soiling as
quickly as possible and ensure that pan
bases are clean, dry and free of
grease.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not allow either solid or liquid
sugar, or pieces of plastic or aluminium
foil to get onto the cooking zones when
they are hot. If this should occur, switch
off the appliance, and carefully scrape
off all the sugar, plastic or aluminium
residues from the cooktop whilst they
are still hot, using a shielded scaper
blade. Take care not to burn yourself.
If residues are allowed to cool before
being removed, the ceramic surface
will be susceptible to pitting or even
cracking.
Once the residues have been removed,
allow the appliance to cool down, and
then clean with a suitable proprietary
ceramic cooktop cleaner.
~ If a domestic animal gets onto the
cooktop, a sensor switch could be
touched and a cooking zone switched
on. Keep pets away from the cooktop at
all times.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
~ When using an electric socket near
the cooktop, care should be taken that
the cable of the electrical appliance
does not come into contact with a hot
cooking zone. The insulation on the
cable could become damaged, giving
rise to an electric shock hazard.
~ Spray canisters, aerosols and other
inflammable substances must not be
stored in a drawer under the cooktop.
Cutlery inserts must be heat-resistant.
~ 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.
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 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.
14
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 wrapping and
stickers.
Before using for the first time, clean the
appliance 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.
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.
Metal components have a protective
coating which may give off a slight
smell when heated up for the first time.
The smell and any fumes given off do
not mean that the appliance is
defective or has been wrongly installed,
and they are not harmful to health.
15
Before using for the first time
Recalibration of the sensor
controls
Automatic recalibration
To ensure trouble free operation, the
sensor controls
– recalibrate when the appliance is first
connected to the mains electricity
supply and after any interruption to
the power supply.
During automatic recalibration the
safety lock indicator lamp is lit and
the cooktop can not be switched on.
Manual recalibration
^ Make sure that there is no direct light
(from the sun or from an artificial
source) falling onto the cooktop. The
area surrounding the cooktop must
not be too dark, nor should the
relationship between light and shade
be constantly changing.
^ Make sure that there is nothing
covering the sensor controls or the
cooktop. Take any pans off the
cooktop and wipe away any food
deposits.
– adjust themselves constantly to the
surrounding conditions.
^ Interrupt the power supply to the
cooktop for approx. 1 minute.
If the automatic recalibration was not
successful, the cooking zone displays
front left and front right will show an A,
rear left an F. The cooking zone display
rear right and the Timer/Memory
display will show numbers.
Reconnect the cooktop to the electricity
supply. The electronic unit will reset the
sensitivity levels of the sensor controls.
If this is the case, recalibration will have
to be carried out manually.
16
If this does not solve the problem
please call the Miele Customer Contact
Center.
How the cooking zones work
Single circle cooking zones have one
heating element, whilst double circle
(vario) cooking zones and extended
zones have two. Depending on the
model, the heating elements may be
separated by an isolating ring.
Each cooking zone has overheating
protection (a temperature limiter), which
stops the ceramic surface from
becoming too hot (see "Overheating
protection").
Single circle zone
a Overheating protection
When a power level is selected, the
heat switches on and the element can
be seen through the ceramic surface.
b Heating element
The temperature of the cooking zones
depends on the power level selected,
and is electronically regulated. This
controls the "timing" of a cooking zone,
switching the element on and off.

Use
Sensor controls
Switching on
This cooktop is equipped with
electronic sensor controls which react
to finger contact.
To operate a cooking zone touch the
relevant sensor control. Each time you
touch a sensor control an audible tone
sounds.
The cooktop must be switched on
before any of the zones can be used.
Do not leave the appliance
unattended whilst it is being used.
To switch the cooktop on:
^ Touch the ON/OFF sensor s.
Make sure that only one sensor is
touched at a time (except when
switching off a cooking zone) and
keep the control area clean and do
not put things down on it. The
sensors may fail to react or they
could mistake the article or any dirt
for a finger tip contact, thereby
activating a function or even causing
the cooktop to switch off
automatically (see "Safety
switch-off".)
Never place hot pans over the
sensors. The electronic unit
underneath could get damaged.
A 0 appears in the display for each of
the zones, 00 appears in the
Timer/Memory display. If no further
entry is made, the cooktop will switch
itself off after a few seconds for safety
reasons.
To switch a cooking zone on:
^ Select a power setting between 1 and
12 by touching the - or + sensor.
To select cooking with Auto heat-up,
press the - sensor first, see "Auto
heat-up". To select cooking without
Auto heat-up press the + sensor first.
If you wish to switch on another
cooking zone, and the 0 for that zone
has already gone out, press the - or +
sensor briefly. The 0 will appear and
you can select a power setting (with or
without Auto heat-up).

Cooking with Auto heat-up
When Auto heat-up has been activated,
the cooking zone switches on
automatically at the highest 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).
As the higher continued cooking
settings are generally used for frying
food, only a relatively short heat-up time
is needed to heat up the pan initially.

Use
How to activate Auto heat-up
^ Switch the cooking zone on using the
- sensor. Touch the - sensor until the
required power setting shows in the
display e.g. 3:
12 segments show in the light ring
during the auto heat-up time. After the
auto heat-up time has finished, only
the number of segments for the
relevant continued cooking setting
which has been chosen, show in the
light ring.
Example:
Cooking without Auto heat-up
Proceed as follows:
^ Switch the cooking zone on using the
+ sensor. Touch the + sensor until the
required power setting shows in the
display e.g. 4:
The same number of segments will
show in the light ring, i.e. if setting 4 is
selected four segments will light up.
during the Auto heat-up time:
during the continued cooking time:
At any point during the Auto heat-up
time you can use - or + to increase or
decrease the continued cooking
setting. The Auto heat-up time will alter
accordingly.
21
Use
Switching on an extended area
Depending on the model of cooktop,
the outer circle of a double circle zone
or the extended cooking zone can be
switched on to provide an extended
cooking area when cooking with larger
pans.
A short bar will appear in the top left of
the light ring to indicate that the outer
circle/extended cooking zone has been
switched on (see arrow).
^ Switch the zone on by pressing the or + sensor, and select a power
setting.
^ Then press the sensor for the outer
circle of the double circle zone or the
extended cooking zone n.
If a 0 is showing in the cooking zone
display, you can touch the n sensor
first and then choose a power setting.
22
To switch the outer circle or extended
cooking zone off, touch the n sensor
again or set the display for the zone
back to 0.
Use
Switching off and residual heat
indicators
To switch off a cooking zone:
^ Touch the - and + sensors for the
zone you want to switch off at the
same time.
A 0 will light up in the display for that
zone for a few seconds. If the cooking
zone is still hot, residual heat will then
be indicated in the display.
The lines of the residual heat indicator
go out one after another as the cooking
zones cool down. The last horizontal
line only goes out when the cooking
zone is safe to touch.
Do not touch or place any
heat-sensitive objects on the
cooking zones while the residual
heat indicators are on.
Danger of burning and fire hazard.
If there is an interruption to the
power supply, the residual heat
indicators will flash on and off.
To switch off the cooktop:
Please note that if there is a fault
message, the residual heat
indicators will not light up even if the
cooking zones are still hot.
^ Touch the ON/OFF sensor s.
This switches off all cooking zones. The
residual heat indicator will appear in the
display of any cooking zone which is
still hot.
23
Use
Pans
– Pans made from any material can be
used on a ceramic cooktop.
However, Miele recommends to
refrain from using cookware with an
exposed copper or aluminium base
as they may leave permanent visual
marks on the ceramic surface.
– The best pans are those with a thick
base which is very slightly concave
when cold. When heated, the base
flattens to rest evenly on the cooktop,
optimising the conduction of the
heat.
– Lift pans into position on the
cooktop. Sliding them into place will
cause scuffs and scratches.
– Check that the diameter of the pan
base is wide enough for the cooking
zone so that heat is not lost
unnecessarily. Please note that the
maximum diameter quoted by
manufacturers often refers to the
diameter of the top rim of the pot or
pan. The diameter of the base
(generally smaller) is more important.
Too small
Cold
Hot
– Pans made of glass, ceramic or
stoneware are less suitable, as they
do not conduct the heat so well.
– Do not use pots and pans on the
ceramic cooktop with bases with
pronounced edges or or ridges, e.g.
cast iron pans. These could scratch
or scour the cooktop surface
permanently.
24
Suitable
Use
Tips on saving energy
– Use a pan lid whenever possible to
minimise heat loss.
– Use as little water as possible to
cook with, and reduce the power
setting once the water has come to
the boil or the oil is hot enough to fry
in.
– When cooking for a long time, switch
the cooking zone off about 5 to 10
minutes before the end of the
cooking time. In this way, use is
made of the residual heat.
Uncovered
Covered
– Select a smaller pan when cooking
small quantities. A small pan on a
small cooking zone uses less energy
than a large, partially filled pan on a
large cooking zone.
25
Timer and Memory function
Introduction
Setting the minute minder
The cooktop is fitted with:
- Minute minder (Timer function)
- Automatic switch-off for the cooking
zones (Timer function)
- Memory function.
The minute minder can be used with
the cooktop switched on or off. It works
like a manual kitchen timer.
These functions are described one by
one on the following pages. The Combi
mode is described in the section of that
name.
You can set a time of 1 to 99 minutes
using the Timer function. Use the sensor to reduce the time from 99 to 00
and the + sensor to increase the time
from 00 to 99. The display can be put
back to 00 by touching - and + at the
same time.
On all functions, 00 will appear in the
display for a few seconds at the end of
the time, and an audible tone will sound
at the same time. To turn the audible
tone off before it has finished, touch the
m sensor.
26
^ Touch the m, - or + sensor.
00 will show in the Timer/Memory
display.
^ Touch the - or + sensor until the time
you require appears in the display,
e.g. 15 minutes.
The time then counts down in minutes.
The time remaining can be seen in the
display and changed at any time by
touching - or +.
Timer and Memory function
Switching a cooking zone off
automatically
You can set a time at the end of which
a given cooking zone will switch off
automatically. This automatic switch-off
function can be used on all of the
cooking zones at the same time.
^ Select a power setting for the zone
you require, e.g. back right, in the
usual way.
^ Touch the m sensor until the
indicator lamp for the selected zone
flashes (back right).
If more than one cooking zone is
switched on, the indicator lamps will
light up clockwise beginning with the
front left zone.
^ Touch the - or + sensor until the time
you require appears in the display,
e.g. 15 minutes.
The time then counts down in minutes.
The time remaining can be seen in the
Timer/Memory display and changed at
any time by touching - or +.
If more than one switch-off time is
programmed, the shortest time
remaining will show in the display, and
the indicator lamp for that particular
cooking zone will flash. All the other
indicator lamps will light up constantly.
If you want to check on the remaining
time for another zone, touch the m
sensor until the indicator lamp for the
zone you require flashes.
Timer starting value
The timer is set at the factory so that it
starts with 01 or 99 when the + or sensor is touched.
This setting can be adjusted so that the
time you last used appears in the
display when you press + or - (see
"Programming - P14.").
Example:
If P14, S1 is programmed, and the last
time the minute minder was used was
for 5 minutes, 00 will appear in the
display when you switch on the Timer;
when you then touch + or -, the display
will change to 05.
You can still select any time you want,
even if you have adjusted the timer
default setting.
If you want to set another cooking zone
to switch off automatically, follow the
same steps as described above.
27
Timer and Memory function
Memory function
Recording a Memory programme
The settings used on a particular
cooking zone from switching on right
through to switching off can be
recorded as a Memory programme. Up
to 5 of your favourite cooking
processes can be saved as Memory
programmes. However, only one
programme can be displayed or used
at any one time.
Memory programmes can be recorded
for all cooking zones.
More than one programme can be
recorded for one cooking zone.
The maximum recording time is 99
minutes with a maximum of 10 changes
in power level.
Programme slots that have settings
memorised to them are indicated by a
dot after the number, for example:
P 1 Nothing saved in memory
P 1. Programme settings are saved in
memory.
If all programme slots are in use, and
you want to save a new cooking
process, you will first have to delete
one of the existing programmes.
^ Switch the cooktop on.
^ Press the M sensor.
P 1 will show in the Timer/Memory
display.
^ Touch the + sensor until the
programme number you require
shows in the display.
^ Touch the M sensor until a long
audible tone sounds.
^ Within 10 seconds of this, switch on
the cooking zone required.
The recording process now begins.
During recording, the indicator lamp for
the cooking zone being used flashes in
the Timer/Memory display, and the
programme number lights up.
The process will be saved automatically
when the cooking zone is switched off,
or if you touch M until a long audible
tone sounds. After being saved, the
programme steps show in the display.
Times are displayed rounded up to the
nearest full minute, but when the
programme is running the steps are
timed to the second.
28
Timer and Memory function

29
Timer and Memory function
Combi mode
The minute minder, automatic switch-off
and Memory functions can all be used
at the same time.
If you wish to use the minute minder at
the same time as another function:
Touch the m sensor until the indicator
lamps for the programmed cooking
zones light up constantly, and 00
appears in the Timer/Memory display.
If you want to programme in one or
more switch-off times at the same
time as another function:
Touch the m sensor until the indicator
lamp for the required cooking zone
flashes.
If you want to use the Memory function
at the same time as another function:
Follow the steps described in "Memory
function".
Shortly after the last entry, the
Timer/Memory display switches to the
function with the shortest remaining
time. Except: When a Memory
programme is being recorded, all
programmed times (minute minder,
automatic switch-off) count down in the
background. They only show in the
display as 00 once they have
completely finished running.
30
You can check the functions and
remaining times which are counting
down in the background by touching
the m sensor until
- the indicator lamp required flashes
(Memory function or automatic
switch-off).
- the indicator lamps light up constantly
(minute minder).
Starting with the shortest remaining
time which is showing in the display, all
cooking zones that are in use and the
minute minder are selected clockwise.
Except: Recording a Memory
programme.
Safety features
Safety lock
To activate the safety lock:
Keep children away from the cooktop
for their own safety.
^ Touch the safety lock sensor $ until
the relevant indicator lamp comes on.
Your appliance is equipped with a
safety lock to prevent the cooktop and
the cooking zones being switched on or
any settings being altered.
The indicator lamp will go out after a
short while.
The safety lock can be activated when
the cooktop is switched off as well as
when it is in use.
If the safety lock is activated when the
cooktop is switched off, then the
cooktop cannot be switched on.
If the safety lock is activated when the
cooktop is in use:
– The settings for the cooking zones
and the timer settings cannot be
altered.
– The cooking zones and cooktop can
be switched off but once switched
off cannot be switched on again.
The lamp will come on again to show
that the safety lock has been activated,
if
– you touch the safety lock $ sensor.
– you try to change a setting.
To deactivate the safety lock:
^ Touch the safety lock sensor $ until
the indicator lamp goes out.
You can alter the setting from one
finger to three finger operation (see
"Programming - P4") to make it harder
for children to operate the appliance.
Please note that the safety lock will
deactivate if there is a power cut.
31
Safety features
Stop and Go
To deactivate Stop and Go:
Your appliance has a Stop and Go
feature which, when activated, reduces
the power of all switched-on cooking
zones to setting 1. When Stop and Go is
deactivated, the cooking zones resume
at the power level which was last set.
If Stop and Go is not deactivated, the
cooktop switches off after 1 hour.
^ Touch the $ sensor until the indicator
lamp goes out.
To activate Stop and Go:
^ Touch the $ sensor until you hear
two consecutive beeps.
Be careful not to continue touching
the $ sensor for too long, as this will
activate the safety lock.
The indicator lamp for the safety lock
will start to flash. The power of the
cooking zones in use will be reduced to
setting 1, and a 1 will appear in the
corresponding cooking zone displays.
When Stop and Go is activated
- the countdown of a time
programmed in for automatic
switch-off will be interrupted. When
deactivated, the time will continue
to run.
- the minute minder will continue
without interruption.
- the recording of a Memory
programme will be cancelled.
32
The cooking zones will now run at the
level that was previously set.
Safety features
Safety switch-off
Safety switch-off if the sensors are
covered
Safety switch-off with an over-long
cooking time
Your cooktop is fitted with a safety
switch-off feature in case you forget to
switch it off yourself.
If one of the cooking zones is heated
for an unusually long period of time
(see chart), and the power settings are
not altered, the cooktop will switch itself
off automatically and the appropriate
residual heat indicator will appear.

Your cooktop will switch off
automatically if one or several of the
sensors remain covered for longer than
10 seconds, for example, by finger
contact, food boiling over or by an
object such as an oven glove or tea
towel.
An audible tone will sound every
30 seconds (for a maximum of ten
minutes) and an F will flash in the
display for the sensor which is covered.
^ Clean the control area or remove the
obstruction.
This will turn off the tone and the F will
go out.
^ Switch the cooktop back on again
with the ON/OFF sensor s. The
cooking zones can now be used
again as normal.
* The power settings with a dot after
the number are only available if the
power setting range has been
increased (see "Programming").
^ To use the cooking zone again,
switch it back on in the usual way.
33
Safety features
Overheating protection
Overheating can be caused by:
Each cooking zone is equipped with
overheating protection. An internal
temperature limiter switches off the
heating elements in the cooking zone
before the ceramic surface overheats.
– switching on a cooking zone without
a pan on it.
Once the ceramic has cooled down to
a safe level the heating will
automatically switch back on again.
– heating up an empty pan.
– the base of a pan not sitting evenly
on the cooking zone.
– the pan not conducting the heat
properly.
You can tell that the overheating
protection has activated because the
heating switches on and off even when
the highest setting is selected.
34
Cleaning and care
For Miele branded cleaning and
conditioning products see "Optional
accessories".
Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
this appliance. The steam could
reach electrical components and
cause a short circuit.
Only use proprietary cleaning
products which are suitable for
cleaning ceramic cooktops. Never
use cleaners containing sand, soda,
alkalis, acids or chlorides, oven
sprays, dishwasher detergents, nor
steel wool, abrasive cleaning
agents, hard brushes, scouring
pads and cloths. You should also
avoid using sponges etc. which
have previously been used with
abrasive cleaning agents, as this will
damage the surface.
Do not use washing up liquid to
clean the ceramic surface, as it can
leave a blue sheen which may be
difficult to remove.
The appliance should be cleaned after
each use. Allow the cooktop to cool
down before cleaning.
Wipe all coarse soiling off using a
damp cloth. Stubborn soiling may need
to be removed with a shielded scraper
blade.
Finally, clean the cooktop with a
suitable proprietary ceramic cooktop
cleaner (see "Optional accessories")
applied with kitchen paper or a clean
cloth. Do not apply cleaner whilst the
cooktop is still hot, as this could result
in marking. Please follow the
manufacturer's instructions.
Finally wipe the appliance with a damp
cloth, and then dry it with a clean, soft
cloth. Ensure that all cleaning agent
residues are removed. Residues can
burn onto the cooktop the next time it is
used, and cause damage to the
ceramic surface.
Do not use sharp objects which may
damage the seals between the
ceramic surface and the frame or
between the frame and the worktop.
To prevent the risk of spillages
burning on, remove any soiling as
soon as possible, and ensure that
pan bases are clean, dry and free of
grease.
35
Cleaning and care
Spots caused by limescale deposits,
water and aluminium residues (which
have a metalic appearance) can be
removed using the ceramic cooktop
cleaner.
Should any sugar, plastic or
aluminium foil spill or fall on to a hot
cooking zone, first switch off the
appliance. Then carefully scrape off all
the sugar, plastic or aluminium residues
from the cooktop whilst they are still hot
using a shielded scraper blade. Take
care not to burn yourself.
Allow the cooking zone to cool down,
and then clean as described above
with a suitable proprietary ceramic
cooktop cleaner.
36
Appliances with aluminium frames
(see data plate) are prone to
scratching, alkali and acid damage.
Take great care when cleaning the
aluminium frame. Do not use cleaning
agents for stainless steel or descaling
agents on aluminium surfaces. Soiling
should be wiped off as soon as
possible after using the appliance. If
the soiling is left for a long time it can
have a damaging effect on the
aluminium surfaces. Intensive cleaning
with proprietary ceramic cooktop
cleaners can cause the frame to take
on a shiny appearance.
If you are unsure about a particular
product or need further advice
please contact your nearest Miele
Customer Contact Centre. See back
page for address.

To test the power level
You can test the power level of a
cooking zone as follows. A certain
quantity of water is brought to the boil
in a pan, and the time taken to do this is
measured.
The pan (and lid) must be stainless
steel or enamel. The diameter of the
pan must match the cooking zone, and
be flat-bottomed or slightly concave.
^ Take a note of the diameter and
wattage of the cooking zone to be
tested (see "Guide to the appliance Cooking zones").
^ Fill the pan with the quantity of water
given in the table.
^ Place the pan with its lid on the
cooking zone.
^ Switch on the cooking zone at the
highest setting.
^ Note the time it takes for the water to
boil.
The power level for the cooking zone is
fine if the water boils within the time
given in the table.
The time can vary if:
- there is low or excess voltage
- very cold water is used
- an unsuitable pan is used
- the pan is not covered.

Safety instructions for
installation
Fit the wall units and rangehood
before fitting the cooktop to avoid
damaging the appliance.
~ 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 equipment is not designed for
maritime use or for use in mobile
installations such as caravans, aircraft
etc. However it may be suitable for
such usage subject to a risk
assessment of the installation being
carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
~ This appliance must not be installed
over a dishwasher, washing machine,
tumble dryer, refrigerator, freezer or
fridge-freezer. The high temperatures
radiated by it could damage the
appliance below.
~ After installing the cooktop, ensure
that the connection cable cannot come
into contact with the underside of the
appliance. Make sure that there is no
mechanical obstruction, such as a
drawer, which could damage it.
~ Observe carefully the safety
distances given on the following pages.
~ Do not use any sealant except
where 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 (see
"Sealant").
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.

Installation
Safety clearances
Safety clearance above the cooktop
A minimum safety clearance must be
maintained between the appliance and
the rangehood above it. See the
rangehood manufacturer's operating
and installation instructions for details.
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).
Not allowed
If the manufacturer's instructions are
not available for the rangehood, a
minimum safety clearance of at least
760 mm must be maintained. For any
flammable objects, e.g. utensil rails,
wall units etc. a minimum clearance of
at least 760 mm must be maintained
between them and the appliance
below.
When two or more appliances are
installed together below a
rangehood, e.g. an electric cooktop
and a gas wok combiset, which
have different safety clearances
given in their installation instructions
you should select the greater
distance of the two.

Not recommended
48
Installation
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.
The minimum side clearance from a
cooktop to a combustible surface* shall
be a 300 mm horizontal distance from
the periphery of any electric burner.
The minimum rear clearance from a
cooktop to a
If the clearance between the periphery
of any electric burner and
- the side wall is less than 300 mm
- the rear wall is less than 200 mm,
the walls must be protected with a non

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
undermeath 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.
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.
