OPERATION
10
Preparing your appliance for the first time
• Please remove all internal boxes and bags from the
oven before operation.
• Please wipe out the oven interior prior to operation
with warm soapy water and polish dry with a soft
clean cloth. Do not close the oven door until the oven is completely dry.
• New appliances can have an odour during first
operation. It is recommended to ‘run in’ your oven
before you cook for the first time. Run the oven at
180ºC for 2-4 hours and ensure that the room is well ventilated.
• DO NOT line the oven with foil, it will damage the enamel.
INSTALLING YOUR OVEN ACCESSORIES
Prior to installing accessories, remove all packaging
and remove plastic film from external panels
Side racks
The side racks that come with your oven are fitted in the
following manner
• Insert the 2 rear pegs into the holes provided
• Locate the front peg into the front access hole and push in firmly.
Catalytic liners (on selected models)
Catalytic liners are coated with a specially formulated enamel
coating. This porous coating enables the “self cleaning”
process – see Cleaning your appliance section for more
details. Catalytic liners must be installed first but you can omit
them, if you wish, with no effect to cooking performance.
Their sole purpose is to make oven cleaning easier.
• The catalytic liners will attach to each side of your
oven. There will be a left hand and right hand
version. This is marked on the panel.
• Position the first liner as per the diagram. The black,
shiny side of the liner should be facing the oven
wall, the hooks pointing down and the word ‘LH’
positioned to the top rear portion of the oven. The
right hand side will be a mirror image of this.
• Line the hooks up with the slots provided in the oven
wall, push them in and then allow the liner to slide
down to its final position.
• The access hole for the side racks should be visible
when the liner is correctly positioned – see diagram.

INSTALLATION
INSTALLING YOUR OVEN ACCESSORIES
INSTALLING burners and trivets
Shelves and trays
The shelves are designed so that they have maximum travel
but cannot be accidentally pulled right out. The trays are
designed in the same way and fit straight into the side racks.
• Locate the rear edge of the shelf/tray in between 2
guide rails of the side rack – see diagram. Ensure the
same rail positions on both sides of the oven are being engaged.
• With the front edge raised, begin to slide the shelf into the oven.
• Once the indents have passed the front edge of the side
rack, the shelf can be pushed completely in.
• When fully inserted the shelf/tray should not interfere
with the closed door.
Installing burners
• The burner crown must be fitted correctly into the burner
cup or damage will occur during operation.
• To do this, ensure that the 2 ribs on either side of the
spark plug hole are positioned into the 2 slots on the
burner cup.
• The burner cap is simply positioned over the top of the
burner crown.
NOTE: W
hen the burner is correctly fitted it will sit level
on the hob.

lighting burners
Electronic ignition
These hobs are fitted with mains powered electronic
ignition. When the appliance has been connected and
the power is on, depressing any knob will release sparks
to all burners. To light a burner, depress the corresponding
knob and while continuing to depress knob turn anticlockwise
to ‘HI’ position. The knob may be released once the flame
is established, and turned further anticlockwise to reduce
the flame height as desired.
Model wfe912 & wfe914
Model wfe916
Flame safeguard models WFE914 & WFE916
Models with flame safeguard have the same ignition
procedure as electronic ignition, but require the knob to
continue to be depressed after flame is established for
approximately 5 seconds. If the flame goes out when
the knob is released, simply depress the knob again, this
time holding it down with slightly more force for the same
length of time.
WARNING
• Keep hands clear of burners when lighting.
• If burner does not light within 5 seconds, turn knob to ‘Off’
position, allow gas to disperse, then try lighting again.
• Burners MUST be operated between ‘HIGH’ and ‘LOW’
settings only.
ENVIRONMENTAL TIPS
To conserve gas, place the pan centrally over the burner
and adjust the flame so that it does not go past the edge of the cookware.
1.Low heat burner (5.1MJ/h)
Used for simmering with small cookware items.
2. Medium heat burner (9.0MJ/h)
Used for normal cooking and simmering with mid size cookware items.
3. High heat burner (12.1MJ/h)
Used for fast heating with large size cookware items.
4. Intense heat wok burner (14.4MJ/h)
Used for very fast heating with woks and other large
size cookware items. Use wok trivet provided when
cooking with a wok.
NOTE: In the absence of electrical power, carry out the
ignition directly to the burner with a hand held ignition
source.

USAGE
getting to know your ceramic cooktop
ceramic hotplates Model wfe946
The cooktop is made from ceramic glass, a tough, durable
material that withstands heating and cooling without
breaking. It is strong enough to hold the heaviest utensils.
However, it must be remembered that as it is GLASS, it may
break. Treat it accordingly!
Should you have any questions about the glass in your new
appliance, please contact the service centre by dialling 13 1349.

WARNING
If the ceramic glass is cracked, switch off the appliance to
avoid the possibility of electric shock.
The heating elements are concealed under the smooth glass
surface which has a pattern to show the location of the
elements.
• U
se pans with smooth, clean and dry bottoms to avoid
scratching or burning residue into the glass.
• Ensure the pan bottom is the same size as the working
element.
• We do not recommend ceramic glass pans because
they do not conduct heat well.
• Stainless steel or enamelled saucepans are best.
• Do not use pans with copper or aluminium bottoms
because they can leave traces which are difficult to
remove from the glass.
• If buying new utensils select enamelled steel pans
with 2-3mm thick bottoms or stainless steel pans with
sandwich bottoms 4-6mm thick. The pan bottom
should be flat, or preferably, slightly concave at room
temperature so that it lies flat on the glass surface when
hot.

OPERATION
USING YOUR oven
Understanding your oven functions
The following lists the oven functions available with the
programmable controller (models WFE916, WFE946 &
WVE916). Multifunction models (WFE914 & WFE912)
have all oven functions except for Fan Assist, Pizza and
Fast Heat Up.
Base Heat
Rapid Heat
Function 1
Heat comes from the elements surrounding the fans as well
as the smaller element above the food. This allows you to
preheat your oven 30% quicker than on standard “Bake”.
“Rapid Heat” is ideal for cooking frozen pre-cooked foods
such as savoury dishes, pastries, pizzas, mini meals (TV
dinners), meat pies and fruit pies. Simply place the food in
the oven straight from the freezer and heat – ideal for busy
people. Cook in the upper half of the oven for best results.
Fan Bake
Function 2
Heat comes from the elements surrounding the fans. The
fans circulate the hot air around the oven cavity so that
you can put your food in different places in the oven and
still cook them at the same time. You can use the “Fan
Bake” function for multi-shelf cooking, reheating cooked
foods, pastries and complete oven meals. It will cook at a
lower temperature and be faster than baking. Please note
that some variation in browning is normal.
Heat comes from the element below the floor of the oven.
The Element is controlled by the thermostat and will turn on
and off to maintain the set temperature. The “Base Heat”
function can be used to add extra browning to the bases
of pizzas, pies and pastries. Cook in the lower half of the
oven when you are using only one shelf. For best results,
use silver or shiny trays.
Fan Assist
Function 5
Heat comes from two elements, one above and one
below the food. The fans circulate the hot air around the
oven cavity so that you can put the food in different places
in the oven and still cook them at the same time. You
should only use a maximum of 2 shelves with “Fan Assist”.
Do not use the bottom shelf. If two shelves are used, food
on the shelf in the higher position will cook first and should
then be removed to allow the food on the lower shelf to
finish cooking.
Pizza
Bake/Pizza
Function 3
Heat comes from two elements, one above and one
below the food. The bottom element is a clean heat
element and is below the floor of the oven. Both elements
are controlled by the thermostat and will turn on and off
to maintain the set temperature. You can use the “Bake”
function for single trays of biscuits, scones, muffins, cakes,
slices, casseroles, baked puddings, roasts and delicate
egg dishes.
USAGE
20
Function 4
Function 6
“Pizza” is a combination of “Base Heat” and “Fan Bake”
and offers you the combined benefits of both functions.
Heat comes from the elements surrounding the fans as well
as the clean heat element below the oven floor.
The “Pizza” function is ideal for foods that require cooking
and browning on the base. It is great for foods such as
pizzas, quiches, meat pies and fruit pies. Simply place
the food in the middle of the oven and set the desired
temperature.
USING YOUR oven
Defrost
Maxi Grill
The “Defrost” function uses low temperature air that is
circulated by the fans. You can defrost (thaw) your food
before you cook it. You can also use “Defrost” to raise your yeast dough and to dry fruit, vegetables and herbs.
Fan Grill
Function 8
“Fan Grill” offers you the benefits of both “Bake” and
traditional “Grill” functions. The grill element turns on and
off to maintain the set temperature while the fans circulate
the heated air. The oven door remains closed for fan grill.
You can use “Fan Grill” for large cuts of meat to give you
a result that is similar to “rotisserie” cooked meat.
Put your food on a shelf in the second lowest shelf
position. Put the grill dish on the lowest shelf position to
catch any spills. When using “Fan Grill” it is not necessary
to turn the food over during the cooking cycle. Set the
temperature to 180°C.
Grill
Function 7
Function 9
The “Grill” directs radiant heat from the powerful upper
element onto the food. You can use the “Grill” function for
tender cuts of meat, steak, chops, sausages, fish, cheese
toasties and other quick cooking foods. Grill with the oven
door closed. Preheat your grill for 3 minutes to get the best
results. This will help seal in the natural juices of steak, chops
etc. for a better flavour. You can slide your grill dish into either
of the 2 spaces within the upper pairs of support rails.
Function 10
“Maxi Grill” directs radiant heat from 2 powerful upper
elements onto the food. You can use the “Maxi Grill” function for tender cuts of meat, steak, chops, sausages,
fish, cheese toasties and other quick cooking foods. Grill with the oven door closed.
“Maxi Grill” allows you to take full advantage of the large
grill dish area and will cook faster than normal “Grill”. For
best results it is recommended to preheat your grill for 3
minutes. This will help seal in the natural juices of steak,
chops etc. for a better flavour. You can slide your grill dish
into either of the 2 spaces within the upper pairs of support rails.
Fast Heat Up
“Fast Heat Up” can be selected in the initial heat up
phase of any cooking function. During “Fast Heat Up”
the heat comes from the elements surrounding the fans as
well as the smaller element above the food. This allows
you to preheat your oven 30% quicker than on standard
“Bake/Pizza”. See Using your programmable controller to
operate the oven instructions for more information.
Cooling/Venting fan
Your built-in appliance is fitted with a cooling fan. This prevents your kitchen cabinet from overheating and
reduces the condensation inside the oven. It will operate
whenever you are using your oven or grill and will blow warm air across the top of the oven door. In some
appliances the cooling fan may continue to operate after
the appliance is turned off. It will switch off by itself once
oven is cool
Condensation
Excess condensation may fog the oven door. This may
happen when you are cooking large quantities of food from a cold start. You can minimize condensation by:
• Keeping the amount of water used whilst cooking to a minimum.
• Making sure that the oven door is firmly closed.
• Baking custard in a baking dish that is slightly smaller than the water container.
• Cooking casseroles with the lid on.
NOTE: If you are using water in cooking, this will turn
to steam and may condense outside your appliance.
This is not a problem or fault with your oven.

Operating your oven temperature and function selectors
models WFE912 & WFE914
To set the oven, turn the function selector to the desired
cooking function and then turn the temperature selector
to the desired temperature. An indicator light above the
temperature selector will come on. When the temperature
is reached the heating source switches itself off and the
indicator light goes out. When the oven temperature falls
below the desired setting, the heating source switches on
and the indicator light comes on again.
Once the food is cooked, turn the temperature selector off
in an anticlockwise direction. Do not force it right round in
a clockwise direction as this will result in damage to the
thermostat. Turn the multifunction selector off.

cooking guide
• For best baking results preheat oven for 30 minutes
• S
elect the correct shelf location for food being cooked.
• The grill tray can be used in the oven as a baking dish,
except in oven shelf location 1.
• Make sure dishes will fit into the oven before you
switch it on.
• Keep edges of baking dishes at least 40mm from the
side of the oven. This allows free circulation of heat
and ensures even cooking.
• Do not open the oven door more than necessary.
• Do not place foods with a lot of liquid into the oven
with other foods. This will cause food to steam and not brown.
• After the oven is turned off it retains the heat for some
time. Use this heat to finish custards or to dry bread.
• Do not use a lot of cooking oil when roasting. This will
prevent splattering oil on the sides of the oven and
the oven door. Polyunsaturated fats can leave residue
which is very difficult to remove.
• When cooking things which require a high heat from
below (e.g. tarts), place the cooking dish on a scone
tray in the desired shelf position.
• For sponges and cakes use aluminium, bright finished
or non-stick utensils.
• Remove unnecessary trays or dishes when roasting or baking.
Oven shelf location
Your oven has seven positions for shelves. These are numbered from 1 (the lowest shelf position) to 7 (the highest shelf position). See diagram.

To give maximum space above and below the shelves,
load them in this way:
• When cooking with 1 shelf, use position 3 or 4.
• When cooking with 2 shelves, use position 3 and 5 Use the oven efficiently, by cooking many trays of food at
the same time. For example:
• Cook 2 trays of scones, small cakes or sausage rolls.

COOKING GUIDE
Roasting Meat
1. Place the meat in the oven and set the temperature
between 180°C and 200°C. (It is recommended to
wrap your meats in an oven roasting bag or foil to
prevent fats and oils from splattering, making it easier
to clean your oven.)
2. Use the grill/oven dish and grill insert. Place the meat on the insert.
3. Do not pierce the meat, as this will allow juices to escape.
4. When the meat is cooked, take the roast out of the
oven, wrap in aluminium foil and leave to stand for
about 10 minutes. This will help retain the juices when
the meat is carved. The table shows temperatures and
cooking times for different kinds of meat. These may
vary depending on the thickness or bone content of the meat.
WARNING
NOTE: Always clean the grill/oven dish after every use.
Excessive fat build up may cause a fire.
Grilling is conducted with the oven door closed
As a method of cooking, grilling can be used to:
• Enhance the flavours of vegetables, fish, poultry and meat.
• Seal the surface of the food and retain the natural juices.
This table shows how to grill different types of meat:
Beef
Tenderloin, rump, sirloin. Brush with oil or melted
butter, especially if the meat is very lean.
Lamb
Loin chops, short loin chops, chump chops, and
forequarter chops. Remove skin or cut at intervals
to stop curling. Brush with oil or melted butter.
Sausages
Prick sausages to stop skin from bursting.
Poultry
Divide into serving pieces. Brush with oil.
Fish
Brush with oil or melted butter and lemon juice.
Bacon
Remove rind. Grill flat.

Guide to better grilling
No definite times can be given for grilling because this
depends on your own tastes and the size of the food. These
times should only be used as a guide and remember to turn
the food over half way through the cooking process.
For better grilling results, follow these easy instructions:
1. Preheat grill for at least 5 minutes.
2. Choose only prime cuts of meat or fish. If the cut is less
than 5mm thick it will dry out. If the cut is more than
40mm thick, the outside may burn whilst the inside
remains raw.
3. Do not place aluminium foil under the food as this
prevents fats and oils from draining away, which could
result in a fire.
4. Baste the food during cooking with butter, olive oil or marinade. Grilled food is better if marinated before cooking.
5. Use tongs to turn food as a fork pierces the surface and
will let juices escape.
Fan Grill
The “Fan Grill” assists the grilling process by circulating the
heat evenly around the food. The recommended temperature
setting is 180°C for all fan grilling functions.
1. Place the grill dish on the bottom rack.
2. Place meat/poultry on an oven shelf above the grill dish.
3. Wipe off any oil or fat which spatters while the oven is still warm.

steel that resists finger marks and should only be
cleaned with warm water and a mild detergent. Do
not use stainless steel cleaners, abrasive cleaners or
harsh solvents on these parts.
NOTE: Make sure you follow the polish or brushing lines
in the stainless steel.
• A
ll grades of stainless steel can stain, discolour or
become greasy. You must clean these regularly by
following the procedures below if you want your
appliance to look its best, perform well and have a
long life.
• Care must be taken when wiping exposed stainless
steel edges, they can be sharp!
• The stainless steel gas hob can be cleaned with
stainless steel cleaners if it becomes soiled or
discoloured.
• A suitable cleaner can be purchased from Electrolux
Customer Care Centres.
Glass
• Glass surfaces on doors and control panels are best
cleaned immediately after soiling.
• A damp cloth may help remove baked on food deposits.
WARNING
• T he door glass on this appliance is made from a
tough, durable material that withstands heating
and cooling without breaking. However, it must be
remembered that it is GLASS, it may break. Treat it
accordingly! Should you have any questions about
the glass in your new appliance, please contact the
customer care centre by dialling 1300 363 640.
• Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal
scrapers to clean the oven door since they can scratch
the surface, which may result in shattering of glass.
Gas Hotplate
• The trivets can be removed for cleaning by carefully
lifting them from the hob.
• Clean by washing with warm soapy water.
• The burner caps and crowns are also removable for
cleaning.
• If the caps, crowns and cups are heavily soiled, use a
non-abrasive cleaning compound.
• Flame port blockages should be removed by using a
matchstick or brush.
• Do not clean them with abrasive or caustic type
cleaners, or clean them in a dishwasher.
Ceramic Hotplate
• Remove all spilt food and fat with the supplied razor
blade scraper, while the ceramic glass is still warm but
not hot. Wipe clean with dishwashing detergent on a
damp cloth.
• If aluminium foil, plastic items or high sugar content
foods are allowed to melt on the ceramic glass, clean
immediately with the supplied razor blade scraper
before the surface has cooled down, otherwise pitting
of the surface can occur.
Note: Items with high sugar content not only include jam
and fruit, but also vegetables such as peas, tomatoes
and carrots.
• When the ceramic glass is cool, apply a suitable
cleaner (supplied with the appliance).
• It is important to follow the cleaner manufacturer’s
instructions. Remove any cleaning residue from the
surface as staining of the cooktop may occur.
• Do not use abrasive sponges or scourers, as they may

33
CLEANING
CATALYTIC LINERS (where fitted)
STORAGE COMPARTMENT (SELECTED MODELS)
Operation
The catalytic liners are coated with a specially formulated
enamel coating, over a base of regular enamel. This
enamel coating has a rough surface which is also porous.
During normal cooking, fats and other food spatter is
partially absorbed into the surface and then oxidised
away. This oxidisation of the fat works best if the oven
is set at high temperatures. If you do a lot of lower
temperature baking, say around the normal 180ºC, then
the cleaning process may not be complete. Every now
and then you should turn the oven on to 260ºC for around
one hour to completely remove the soil.
The storage compartment is accessible through the pivoting door.
Unused oven racks and grill dishes can be stored here.
Cleaning
Should the panels become heavily soiled, they will need
to be taken out of the oven and cleaned by hand. They
should be soaked in warm, soapy water for at least 2
hours and then wiped clean with a soft cloth.
WARNING
• S
olid cleaning powders, creamy cleansers, caustic
oven cleaners, steel wool or other scourers will ruin the
catalytic surface and must NEVER BE USED.
• When running the oven at 260°C to clean the
catalytic liners, surfaces under these conditions will be
hotter than usual and children should be kept away.
WVE916sa
Removing the catalytic liners
• Remove Side Racks.
• Lift the liner up to disengage the hooks.
• The liners should now be free to be pulled in towards
the centre of the oven.

• The gas connection point is a ½” BSP external thread
located at the rear of the appliance as shown.
• A regulator is supplied which must be fitted to the
appliance. Ensure that when fitted the pressure test
point of regulator is accessible.
• The regulator is to be fitted to the appliance
connection point, then fit hard piping from the

Lpg conversion
Models wfe912, wfe914 & wfe916
This appliance is supplied set up to for Natural Gas
usage. A conversion kit is included with the product
for Universal LPG usage. The conversion kit contains 6
injectors and 1 LPG sticker.
Please follow the procedure below if a conversion to suit
UNIVERSAL LPG is required.
1. Remove the hotplate trivets, burner caps and burner
crowns to access the hotplate injectors. Replace the
factory fitted injectors with the appropriate injectors, as
supplied. Refer to injector orifice table for injector sizes.
The injector size is stamped on the side of the injector.
2. Unscrew the hex nut from the regulator. The hex nut, brass
washer and nylon insert will disengage as an assembly.
3. Unclip the nylon insert from the nut assembly by
rotating the insert 1/4 turn, and pulling it free.
4. Turn over the insert, and clip back into position.
5. Refit the hex nut assembly to the regulator ensuring that
it is fully screwed down. The regulator is now set for
connection to LPG.
6. Turn on the gas supply and at each new connection
check for leaks using soapy water: each hotplate
valve should be turned on, one at a time, and the
injector hole blanked off for several seconds.
7. The operation of the regulator can be confirmed by
connecting a manometer to the pressure test point
located on the side of the regulator body adjacent to
the outlet. With the appliance operating check the outlet pressure
• when all burners of the appliance are operating at maximum,
• when the smallest burner of the appliance is
operating at minimum.
Under these conditions the outlet pressure should not
vary from the nominal outlet pressure of 2.60kPa by
more than ±0.52kPa.
8. If the regulator appears to not be performing
satisfactorily then check the following points.
• If the outlet pressure is consistently too low then
the inlet pressure may be too low and adjustment
of an upstream regulator may be needed, or an
upstream regulator or valve with insufficient flow
capacity may be present in the gas supply line. If
this is suspected then it may be necessary to repeat
the checks whilst measuring both the inlet and outlet
pressure to determine if the inlet pressure is in the
range 2.75 – 7.00kPa.
• Check that the insert has been fitted correctly.
• Check that the turret screw is fully screwed down.
• Check that the regulator has been fitted to the gas
supply line in the correct orientation, the arrow on the
base of the body indicates the direction of gas flow.
9. One by one, turn the knobs to minimum and screw
in the bypass screw (accessible when the knob is
removed) until a small stable flame results. Turn the
knob to maximum and then back to minimum to ensure
that the correct minimum flame is maintained.
10.Attach the LPG sticker to the cooker, near the gas
supply inlet. Cover the Natural Gas label that is
factory fitted.

INSTALLATION
testing the operation of the gas cooker
NOTE: You MUST test the cooker after installation, before
you hand it over to the customer. You MUST have a
manometer and a connecting tube.
Checking gas supply
1. Check the manometer zero point is correct.
2. Connect the manometer to the cooker pressure test
point. This is located on the regulator or LPG inlet fitting.
3. Turn on the gas supply and the electricity and try to
ignite the gas.
NOTE: It will take additional time to light the gas for the
first time as air needs to be purged from the pipes.
4. Check the operating pressure for the particular gas type.
Checking the Function of the Regulator
With the appliance operating check the outlet pressure:
• when all burners of the appliance are operating at
maximum,
• when the smallest burner of the appliance is operating
at minimum.
Under these conditions the outlet pressure should not vary
from the nominal outlet pressure by more than ±20% of the
nominal outlet pressure (ie ±0.20kPa for Natural Gas).
If the regulator appears to not be performing satisfactorily
then check the following points.
1. If the outlet pressure is consistently too low then the
inlet pressure may be too low and adjustment of an
upstream regulator may be needed, or an upstream
regulator or valve with insufficient flow capacity may
be present in the gas supply line. If this is suspected
then it may be necessary to repeat the checks whilst
measuring both the inlet and outlet pressure to
determine if the inlet pressure is in the range 1.13 –
5kPa.
2. Check that the regulator has been fitted to the gas
supply line in the correct orientation, the arrow on the
base of the body indicates the direction of gas flow.
Once these checks have been completed, if the regulator
still fails to perform in a satisfactory manner it should be
replaced.
INSTALLATION

Testing the cooker features
• Observe the flame appearance on each burner. If it is
much smaller or larger than expected, then the injector
size needs checking.
NOTE: When flame is unsatisfactory, then refer to the
Electrolux Technical Publications and correct the fault,
if possible.
When maximum flame appearance is correct, then check
the turn-down setting on each burner. If the settings appear
to be incorrect, proceed as follows:
1. Adjust the bypass screw mounted on the body of each
hotplate control cock. This is accessible when the
control knob and the control panel are removed.
2. Check the ignition on all burners both separately and
in combination.
3. Check the operation of the electrical components, if applicable.
4. If you are satisfied that the cooker is operating
correctly, then turn it off and show the customer how to
use it. Make sure you ask the customer to operate the
clock and controls.
NOTE: If the cooker cannot be adjusted to perform
correctly, then inform the customer of the problem and
put a warning notice on the cooker. If the problem is
dangerous, then disconnect the cooker. If there is a
fault, then the customer should be advised to contact the
manufacturer’s local service organisation or the retailer.
