Warning and Safety instructions
Warning and Safety instructions
Do not use the hob as a resting
place for anything else. This could
lead to a danger of the article beginning to melt or catching fire, if the hob
were to be switched on inadvertently.
Take care to keep the touchpads
and the area around them clean
and do not put things down on them.
Hot pans can damage the electronics
which are under the sensors.
When cleaning the hob surface do not
push the dirt across the touchpads.
The sensors could mistake the article
or dirt for a finger tip contact, thereby
activating a function.
Do not drop anything on the ceramic hob.
Dropping a salt cellar, for example,
could be the cause of damage in certain circumstances.
Do not use plastic or aluminium foil
containers.
These melt at higher temperatures and
could damage the ceramic surface.
Do not allow either solid or liquid
sugar or pieces of plastic or aluminium foil to get onto the ceramic hob
when it is hot. If this is allowed to cool
before the hob has been cleaned, the
ceramic surface will be susceptible to
pitting or even cracking.
Switch the cooking zones off and while
the hob is still warm, scrape all the
sugar, plastic or aluminum remains
from the hob with a shielded scraper
blade taking care not to burn yourself.
8
Do not use any pots or pans on the
ceramic hob with bases with pronounced edges or ridges.
These could scratch or scour the hob
surface permanently.
If a drawer is fitted directly underneath the hob without any wooden
base in between, ensure that no aerosols, combustible liquids or other easily
flammable materials are kept in it. If cutlery inserts are to be placed in the
drawer, these must be made of suitable
heat-resistant material.
When using kitchen appliances
connected to sockets near the ceramic hob ensure that the cable cannot
touch a heated hob zone or pan. 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, its temperature, changes to the
recipe and the shape and size of cooking container.
Some foods may contain micro organisims which are only destroyed by
thorough cooking, therefore when cooking or reheating foods, e.g. poultry, it is
particularly important that food is fully
cooked through (at more than 70 °C,
for more than 10 minutes). If in doubt
select a longer cooking or reheating
time.

Saucepans
Pan size
The following notes are designed to enable you to
– make the best use of energy when
using your ceramic hob.
– prevent food boiling over and burning onto the hob.
Suitable pans
The diameter of the pan should be a
little larger than that of the cooking
zone.
Pan lids
So that optimum energy consumption
is achieved during cooking, only pans
with flat or very slightly concave bases
should be used. When the pan is hot,
the base should rest evenly on the ceramic surface. Check for suitability
when purchasing new pans.
A lid on the pan will prevent heat from
being lost.
15
Use
Use
Please observe the following
good practice guide:
Always place a pan centrally on the
cooking zone before switching on the
appliance to save energy.
The cooking zone and the pan base
should be clean and dry. This saves unnecessary cleaning after cooking.
Always check before beginning to
cook that there are no sand-like
grains on the ceramic surface.
If such grains should find their way
underneath the saucepan when it is
pushed across the hob the grains
could cause scratches on the surface.
Do not use any pots or pans which
have bases with pronounced edges
or ridges or are enamelled unevenly.
These could scratch or scour the hob
surface.
Do not push any enamelled objects
such as baking trays or roasting
pans around on the hob.
This could cause scratches.
16
When using aluminium utensils the
metal can affect the ceramic surface by leaving mother-of-pearl coloured marks behind.
These marks can be removed most
easily if they are treated immediately
they appear with a special proprietary
cleaning agent (see chapter on "Cleaning and Care").
Do not allow either solid or liquid
sugar or pieces of plastic or aluminium foil to lie on the heated cooking zones.
If spills are left on the ceramic surface
until it has cooled down, these will
cause variable pitting, and could even
cause cracking.
When spills occur, therefore, switch the
cooking zone off and immediately
scrape off all the residues with a
shielded razor blade scraper. Take care
not to burn yourself.
Cleaning and care
Cleaning and care
In general you can use the same cleaning agents for the ceramic hob surface
as you would for ordinary glass surfaces.
Never use scouring agents or pads,
or strong cleaners such as oven
sprays or stain or rust removers, as
these could harm the surface.
There is a seal between the hob
frame and worktop and between the
frame and the ceramic plate. Do not
use any sharp pointed object, such
as a knife, to clean these seals as
they could become damaged.
Clean after each use
Take care to keep the touch pads
and the area around them clean
and do not put things down on
them. Hot pans can damage the
electronics under the sensors.
When cleaning the hob surface do
not push the dirt across the touch
pads.
The sensors could mistake the article or dirt for a finger tip contact,
thereby activating a function.
Any minor spills which have not dried
on can be wiped off with a damp cloth
or sponge. Non-abrasive liquid
cleaners can also be used.
If the hob is cleaned with washing
up liquid for example, light blue
staining might occur. These stains
can be removed with one of the proprietary agents mentioned, although
they can be stubborn, and it may
take several applications.
Hardened spills should be carefully
scraped off using a shielded razor
blade scraper.
The hob surface should then be
rubbed clean with a damp cloth or
sponge.
To remove marks
Light marks with a metallic sheen
(aluminium deposits) on the hob surface can be removed once the hob has
cooled down by using a suitable proprietary cleaner.
Lime deposits (caused for example by
water boiling over) can be removed
with vinegar or a proprietary hob
cleaner.
17
Cleaning and care
Cleaning and care
Removal of sugar, syrups,
plastic or aluminium foil.
Switch the hob off and scrape off all
the residues straight away with a
shielded razor blade scraper while
it is still hot. Protect your hands from
the heat.
Once the cooking zone has cooled
down clean with a suitable cleaner.
Cleaning agents for regular
cleaning
There are several proprietary cleaners
suitable for vitreous ceramic surfaces.
Follow the manufacturer’s cleaning
and care instructions.
Do not use the cleaner while the
cooking zone is hot.
Ensure that any residues of cleaning agent are removed from the hob
surface with a damp cloth.
Otherwise these could have an etching effect when the zone is heated
up.
Some cleaners incorporate a silicone
agent which acts as a protective film on
the ceramic hob. However, cooking at
high temperatures reduces the effect
and the cleaner needs to be reapplied
for renewed effect.

Problem solving guide
Problem solving guide
Repairs to the electrical components of this appliance should only
ever be carried out by a competent
person. Unauthorised repairs can
be dangerous.
Some minor problems however can be
dealt with as follows:
What to do if . . .
. . . there is a slight smell when the
hob is heated for the very first time.
This is not a fault.
Residual moisture in the insulation is
drying out.
. . . it is not possible to switch on the
cooking zones.
Check if the zone lock is on.
If all the indicator lights are switched
off check whether the house mains
fuse has blown.
Call an electrician or the Service Department.
. . . a cooking zone switches off during use and "H" repeatedly flashes in
the display.
This is not a fault.
If a cooking zone has been switched
on for an exceptional length of time the
safety switch or feature is activated.
This can be after a period of 1 to 10
hours depending on the setting originally selected. The higher the setting the
shorter the time to auto switch off.
To switch on the cooking zone again.
Select setting "0" and then once
again the setting required.
If "H" flashes in one or more displays
this is not a fault but a signal that these
zones are still hot.
. . . when using auto heat up the content of the pan does not cook satisfactorily check
whether a pan with a heat retaining
base is being used.
The warmth from this base only transfers slowly into the food.
Whether a rather large pan is being
used.
In both cases select a higher setting for
continued cooking, or bring to the boil
with setting "9" and then switch to a
lower setting.

Notes on installation
Ceramic hob
The model, voltage and rated load are
given on the hob data plate. These
must match the mains supply. When
contacting the Service Department
please quote voltage, model and serial
numbers given on the data plate.
These hobs are classified as "Y" class
for heat protection
(IEC regulation 335-2-6) (not Australia).
Fit wall units and adjacent tall units
before fitting the ceramic hob, to
avoid the danger of damaging the
hob.
Ideally the hobs should be installed
with plenty of space on either side.
There may be a wall at the rear and
wall or tall units at one side. On the
other side however no unit or divider
must stand higher than the hob.
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.
The hob may not be built in over a
dishwasher or fridge, fridge-freezer
or freezer. The high radiant temperatures which are sometimes generated by the hob could damage
such appliances.
If the hob is built in above an oven,
the connecting cable of the hob
must be positioned in such a way
that it cannot come into contact with
the oven housing.
