insulation of the cable could become
damaged. Danger of electric shock!
~ To prevent damage to the cooktop
~ Areas around the cooktop (the
cooktop frames or surrounding (in the
case of beveled cooktops) may
become hot due to the following
factors: operating time, high output
settings, large cook ware, and number
of burners in operation.
~ Before using glass, glass/ceramic,
~ Be careful not to drop anything on
the ceramic surface of the cooktop.
Even lightweight objects may cause
damage.
~ To prevent burns and breathing
~ Use the proper pan size. Select
cookware with flat bottoms large
enough to cover the heating element.
Using undersized cookware will expose
a portion of the heating element and
may result in ignition of clothing or
handles becoming hot. The proper size
pot or pan will also improve efficiency.
~ Do not use pots or pans with
pronounced edges or ridges on the
ceramic cooktop. These could scratch
the cooktop permanently. See
"Selecting cookware" for more
information. Grains of salt and sand can
cause scratches. Make sure that the
bases of any pots and pans are clean,
free of any fat or oils and are dry.

Before using for the first time
Clean the cooktop
^ Before using for the first time, clean
the appliance with a damp cloth and
dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use liquid dish soap to clean
the cooktop, this may cause
permanent blue discolorations.
Heat the cooktop
Only for facet cooktops:
A small gap between the cooktop
and the work surface may be visible
in the first days of operation. It will
become smaller during use. Despite
this small gap, the electrical safety of
your appliance is always ensured.
Metal components of the appliance
have a protective coating which may
give off a slight odor the first time the
appliance is heated.
The smell will dissipate after a short
time and does not indicate a faulty
connection or appliance defect.
11
How the burners operate
One-zone burners use one heating
strip; two-zone burners and grill zones
have two heating strips. Depending on
the model, the heating strips may be
separated by a ring.
One-zone burner
Each burner has overheating protection
(internal temperature limiter) feature to
prevent the ceramic glass from
overheating (see "Overheat protection").
When a power level is set, the heat
element turns on and the heating strip
is visible through the ceramic glass.
The power setting determines how hot
the burner will get, and is electronically
regulated. This means that the burner
will switch on and off as needed to
maintain the selected power level.

– of a variable burner left to "0".
13
Operation
Residual heat indicator
After turning on a burner, for example
the left front, a specified temperature is
reached, the associated residual heat
indicator lights up.
After turning off the burner, the residual
heat indicator will go out. The residual
heat indicator will turn off once the
cooking zone is safe to the touch.
Do not touch the burner or rest any
objects on the cooktop when the
residual heat indicator is on. Danger
of burns!
14
Selecting cookware
– Use cookware with thick, flat, smooth
bottoms. Slightly concave bottoms
will also work adequately. Pans with
convex bottoms will not cook well.
cold
Energy saving tips
– For the most even and energy
efficient cooking, the diameter of the
pots/pans should match the diameter
of the burners as closely as possible.
hot
– Cast iron, glass or stoneware should
not be used because they have poor
heat transfer and may scratch the
cooktop surface.
too small
fits
– Whenever possible, keep pots and
pans closed while cooking. This
helps keep in the most possible heat.
– Also unsuitable is plastic or
aluminum foil cookware. These melt
at high temperatures.
– Copper bottom and aluminum
pans may leave a residue on the
cooktop in the form of metallic lines.
This is normal. These lines can be
removed using a non-abrasive
ceramic cooktop cleaner or a
shielded scraper blade.
Be sure to clean the cooktop after
each use. Each time this residue is
allowed to melt it becomes harder to
remove and may mar the
appearance of the cooktop.
Let the cooktop cool before
cleaning.
– Use only pots and pans with flat
bases. Sharp pot and pan bases
scratch the ceramic glass surface.
open
closed
– Use a small pot for small amounts. A
small pot on a small burner needs
less energy then a larger partly filled
pot on a large burner.
– Use little water when cooking and
take care to select a lower energy
level as soon as cooking is
completed.
– For longer cooking periods, you can
switch off the cooking zone 5 to 10
minutes before the total cooking time
is completed. The residual heat will
continue to cook the food.
– Lift the cookware when moving it. In
this way you will avoid streaking from
friction and scratching.
15
Overheat protection
Each cooking zone is equipped with a
temperature limiter. This feature
automatically turns off the heating
element before the glass ceramic
becomes too hot. Once the ceramic
surface has cooled to a safe
temperature the heating element will
automatically turn back on.
The overheat protection may be
activated by:
– turning on a burner without putting a
pan on it.
– heating an empty pan.
– an uneven pan not sitting evenly on
the burner.
– the pan not conducting heat
properly.
If the heating elements cycle on and
off, even at the highest setting, the
overheating protection has been
activated.
16
Cleaning and Care
Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
this appliance. Steam could
penetrate electrical components and
cause a short circuit. Pressurized
steam could cause permanent
damage to the surface.
Do not use any sharp pointed
objects which could damage the
seal between the ceramic surface,
the surrounding frame and the
countertop.
Never use abrasive cleaners,
caustic (oven) cleaners, dishwasher
detergent, scouring pads, steel wool
or hard brushes. They will damage
the surface.
The ceramic surface can be cleaned
using a cleaner for ceramic
surfaces. Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions.
Make sure that no cleaner residue
remains on the ceramic surface by
carefully wiping the cooktop with a
damp cloth. They may damage the
cooktop or produce toxic fumes
when heated.
Be sure that pot and pan bases are
clean and dry.
After cleaning dry the ceramic
surface with a soft cloth to prevent a
build up of limescale deposits.
Clean any spills immediately before
they become difficult to remove.
Clean the appliance regularly,
preferably after each use. Allow the
appliance to cool before cleaning.
Ceramic surfaces
^ Wipe off any soiling using a damp
cloth. Stubborn soiling is best
removed with a shielded scraper
blade.
^ Apply a ceramic cleaner (available
from Miele) using a soft cloth or
paper towel.
^ To remove any limescale deposits or
metallic residue apply a ceramic
cleaner using a soft cloth or use a
shielded scraper blade if necessary.
^ After cleaning wipe the ceramic
surface with a damp cloth and dry.
A cleaner with a special additive to
prevent water marks and smears on the
ceramic surface may be used.
Any melted solids like sugar, plastic or
aluminum foil should be removed as
quickly as possible, while the burner is
still warm. If they are allowed to harden
the cooktop may become pitted.
^ Turn the burner off.
^ Using a shielded scraper blade,
scrape the melted item immediately
off the burner while it is still hot.
Use caution: Danger of burns!

cooktop is not required.
Safety distances above the
appliance
If a divider is fitted under the cooktop,
the distance between the upper edge
of the work surface and the upper edge
of the divider must be at least 4 ½ "
(110 mm).
A gap of at least 1 3/8"" (35 mm) must
be provided between the rear edge of
the divider and the rear wall of the
cabinet so that the power cord can be
passed through.
The minimum safety distance given by
the hood manufacturer must be
maintained between the cooktop and
the hood above it. See the installation
instructions of the hood for these safety
measurements.
If the hood manufacturer's instructions
are not available or if flammable objects
are installed over the cooktop
(e.g. cabinets, utensil rail, etc.), a
minimum safety distance of 30"
(760 mm) must be maintained.
If there is more than one appliance
beneath a hood (e.g. wok burner
and electric cooktop), and they have
different minimum safety distances,
always observe the greater
distance.

a 1 5/8" (40 mm) minimum distance
from the countertop cut-out to the
rear edge of countertop or wall.
b 2" (50 mm) minimum distance from
the right of the countertop cut-out to
the closest adjacent piece of
furniture (for instance, a high
cabinet) or a room wall.
c 2" (50 mm) minimum distance from

Installation
Safety distance from the wall covering
If a wall covering is installed, a minimum safety distance must be maintained
between the countertop cut-out and the covering, since high temperatures can
damage these materials.
If the covering is made of a combustible material (such as wood), the distance
between the countertop cut-out and the wall covering must be a minimum of
2" (50 mm).
For coverings made of non-combustible materials (such as metal, marble, granite
or ceramic tiles) the minimum safety distance e between the countertop cut-out
and the wall covering must be 2" (50 mm) minus the thickness of the covering.
For example: thickness of wall covering 9/16" (15 mm)
2" (50 mm) - 9/16" (15 mm) = minimum safety distance 1 3/8" (35 mm).

Sealing
Tiled surfaces
The appliance must not be permanently
sealed into the countertop when
installed. The sealing strip under the
edge of the appliance provides a
sufficient seal for the countertop.
The grouting a and shaded area under
the appliance frame must be flat and
even so that the frame will lie evenly
and the sealing strip under the edge of
the upper part of the appliance can
provide an adequate seal against the
countertop.
If the appliance is sealed into
position, the countertop or appliance
could be damaged if it needs to be
removed for maintenance or service.

Installation
Wood or solid surface countertop
The exact positions of the spring
clamps and the support bars (for
beveled cooktops only) are shown in
the "Installation dimensions" of each
unit.
Facet cooktops:
A special sealing strip ensures the
slip-proof seating of the cooktop in
the cutout. The gap between the
frame and the countertop will narrow
after a little time has passed.
^ Seal the cut surfaces with a suitable
sealant to avoid swelling caused by
moisture.
The materials used must be heat
resistant.
Ensure that these materials do not
get on the top surface of the
countertop panels.
^ Create the countertop cutout as
shown in the "Installation
dimensions". Observe the safety
distances (see "Installation Safety
Instructions").
^ Position the spring clips and the
securing strips (supplied with the
appliance; only for facet cooktops)
on the top edge of the cut-out
^ Attach the spring clips a and the
securing strips b with the
3.5 x 25 mm wood screws (supplied).
30
Installation
Granite countertop
Strong double-sided adhesive tape
and silicon are required for
installation (not included).
^ Coat the lateral edges and the lower
edge of the spring clips and securing
strips with silicon.
^ Using adhesive tape c attach the
spring clips and the securing strips
(for facet cooktops only)
The spring clips and the securing
strips must be on or flush with the
top edge of the cooktop.
31
Installation
Insert the cooktop
^ Feed the power cord down through
the cut-out.
^ Place the cooktop lightly on the
spring clips.
^ With a hand on each side of the
appliance press down evenly on the
edges until it clicks into position.
When doing so make sure that the
appliance seal sits tightly on the
countertop to ensure it is sealed
correctly. This is important to ensure
an effective seal. Do not permanently
seal into the countertop.
If during installation the seal around
the frame does not sit flush with the
countertop in the corners, the corner
radius, maximum 3/16" (4 mm), can be
carefully filed down to fit.
^ Connect the appliance to the main
power supply (see "Electrical
connection").
^ Turn the appliance on and check the
function.
The appliance may be lifted out
using a special tool.
The appliance can also be pushed
up and out from underneath.
