place for reference, and pass them
on to any future user.
Installation and connection
The connection to the gas supply
must be carried out by a suitably
qualified and competent person in strict
accordance with current local and
national safety regulations, e.g. a Corgi
registered service technician in the
U.K. If the appliance is supplied without
a plug, or if the plug is removed, it must
be connected to the mains electricity
supply by a suitably qualified and
competent electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
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 current 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 electrical supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
This equipment may only be used
in mobile installations such as
ships, caravans, aircraft etc. if a risk
assessment of the installation has been
carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct usage
For safety reasons this appliance
must only be operated after it has
been built in. This is necessary to
ensure that all electrical components
are shielded.
This appliance is intended for
domestic use only and is not to be
used for commercial purposes.
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
resulting from incorrect or improper use
or operation.
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.
Using the gas hob will cause a
build-up of heat and moisture in
the room in which it is installed. Ensure
that the room has sufficient natural or
mechanical means of ventilation, e.g.
an extractor.
If the hob 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 extractor on the
highest setting.
This appliance must not be set up
or operated in the open air.
Make sure all the components of
the gas burner have been correctly
assembled before switching on.
When using the gas hob, ensure
that any burners in use are always
covered with a pan. If using a cooker
hood above it flames could be drawn
up by the suction of the cooker hood,
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 hob. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for this type of
damage.
Do not store any inflammable
objects near the gas hob.

operating instructions.
This appliance is not a toy! To
avoid the risk of injury, keep
children well away, and do not allow
them to play with it or use the controls.
They will not understand the potential
dangers posed by it. They should be
supervised whenever you are working
in the kitchen.
Older children may use the
appliance only when its operation
has been clearly explained to them and
they are able to use it safely,
recognising the dangers of misuse.
The appliance gets hot when in
use and remains hot for quite a
while after being switched off. To
safeguard against burning, keep
children well away from the appliance
at all times.
Keep all pans out of reach of
children. Turn pan handles inwards
away from the edge of the hob. Danger
of burning or scalding. Special hob
guards are available from good retail
outlets.

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 safely as soon as possible.
Before disposing of an old
appliance, disconnect it from the
gas and electricity supplies. Cut off and
render any plug useless. Cut off the
cable directly behind the appliance to
prevent misuse. This should be done
by a competent person.
Do not store anything which might
arouse a child's interest in storage
areas above or next to the appliance.
Otherwise they could be tempted into
climbing onto the appliance with the
risk of burning themselves.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Protecting the appliance from
damage
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.
Unless the pan manufacturer
states that you can do so, do not
use pans with very thin bases on this
hob, and never heat up empty pans as
they could get damaged. This could
also damage the appliance.
In countries where there are 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 which may be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the appliance guarantee.
Appliances with a ceramic surface:
Do not drop anything on the
ceramic surface. Even a light
object could cause damage in certain
circumstances.
10
Stainless steel surfaces:
Avoid allowing liquids or foods
containing salt to spill onto a
stainless steel hob or trim. If salty foods
or liquids do get on the hob, 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
The appliance gets hot when in
use, and remains hot for quite a
while after being switched off. Do not
touch it whilst it could still be hot.
For added protection, it is
advisable to use heat-resistant pot
holders or oven gloves when using the
appliance. 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 the gloves get damp or wet, as this
causes heat to transfer through the
material more quickly with the risk of
burning yourself.
Do not heat up unopened tins of
food on the hob. Presssure can
build up and they may explode,
resulting in injury and scalding or
damage.
Remove splashes of fat and other
food debris from the surface as
soon as possible. These are a fire
hazard.
Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oil
or fat. Very hot oil can catch fire and
could even set a cooker hood above on
fire. Always heat fat slowly, watching as
it heats.
If, despite this, 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 flambé under a cooker
hood. The flames could set the
cooker hood 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 use the appliance as a
resting place for anything else. The
article could melt or catch fire if
residual heat is still present or if the
appliance is switched on by mistake.
Do not cover the appliance, e.g.
with a cloth, kitchen foil, etc. This
could be a fire hazard if the appliance
is switched on by mistake.

Warning and Safety instructions
Appliance faults
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. It should not be used
again until it has been repaired. If the
appliance has not yet been fully
installed, the electricity cable must be
disconnected from the supply point. If
connected via a plug and socket,
switch off at the socket and withdraw
the plug. Contact the Service
Department.
Do not reconnect the appliance to the
mains electricity or gas supply until
after it has been repaired.
When using an electric socket near
the appliance, care should be
taken that the cable of the electrical
appliance does not come into contact
with the hot appliance. The insulation
on the cable could become damaged,
giving rise to an electric shock hazard.
Appliances with a ceramic surface:
If there is any damage to the
ceramic surface the appliance must be
disconnected from the mains electricity
and gas supplies immediately and not
used until it has been repaired. Danger
of electric shock!
Repairs to the gas and electrical
components of this appliance must
only be carried out by a suitably
qualified person. They must be CORGI
registered in the UK. Repairs and other
work by unqualified persons could be
very dangerous and could damage the
appliance. The manufacturer cannot be
held liable for unauthorised work. Never
open the housing 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.
12
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 catch fire.
Spray canisters, aerosols and other
inflammable substances must not
be stored in a drawer under the hob.
Cutlery inserts must be heat-resistant.
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 Warning
and Safety instructions.
Caring for the environment
Disposal of packing material
Disposal of your old appliance
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
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.
Please do not therefore dispose of your
old 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 safely 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. If
connected by a plug, the plug must be
rendered useless and the cable cut off
directly behind the appliance to prevent
misuse.
13
Before using for the first time
Cleaning and heating up for
the first time
Before using for the first time clean the
hob 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 stainless steel or ceramic
surface with a damp cloth only, and
then wipe dry.
Do not use washing up liquid on the
ceramic surface as it can leave a
blue sheen which may be difficult to
remove.
14
Metal components have a protective
coating which may give off a slight
smell when 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.
Operation
Switching on, adjusting the
flame and switching off
The control is used to switch on the
burner and regulate the strength of the
flame.
Small, medium and large burners
Wok burner
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 outer flame
ring on the wok burner can only be
switched on and off by pressing the
control in and turning it the
appropriate way.
Trying to switch on a burner
without pressing in the control,
- Switching on a burner by
turning it clockwise,
- Switching the outer flame ring
on the wok burner on or off
without pressing in the control,
or
- Switching off a burner by
turning it anti-clockwise,
can damage components in the
appliance. The manufacturer cannot
be held liable for this type of
damage.
To switch on:
^ The control 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 pressed
in for a few extra seconds.
15
Operation
To regulate the flame:
To switch off:
^ Once the flame is burning well (after
letting the control go), select a setting
between the large and the small
flame symbols. The flame will
become weaker when the control is
turned anti-clockwise and stronger
when it is turned clockwise. It is not
necessary to press in the control
when adjusting the setting.
^ Turn the control clockwise to position
"ß" .
^ When turning the wok burner control
you will feel a resistance. Briefly
press down and turn the control past
this resistance to switch the outer
flame ring on or off. See the "Settings"
chart on the next page.
^ 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 injury.
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.
– 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 hob. The manufacturer cannot be
held liable for this type of damage.
– Use a pan lid whenever possible to
minimise heat loss.
– Wide, shallow pans are preferable to
tall, narrow ones. They will heat up
faster.
18
Operation
Safety cut-out
This appliance is fitted with a
thermoelectric 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.
^ To use the burner again, turn the
control clockwise to the "ß" position
and switch on as normal.
The safety cut-out operates
independently from the electricity
supply. This means that it will still work if
the hob is used during a power cut.
Using your hob during a power
cut
If there is an interruption to the
electricity supply the gas can be
ignited with a match:
^ Press in the relevant control and turn
it anti-clockwise to the large flame
symbol.
^ Hold the control pressed in and light
the gas at the burner with a match.
^ Keep the control pressed in for a
further 8-10 seconds and then
release it.

manufacturer cannot accept liability.
Do not use any sharp pointed
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 hob as they can damage the
surface material:
cleaning agents containing sand,
soda, alkalines, acids or chlorides,
grill and oven sprays, dishwasher
cleaner, stain or rust removers,
scouring agents or cream cleaners,
abrasive sponges and brushes.
Do not let the ignitor in the burner
get wet. If it gets wet it will not spark.
After cleaning, dry the surfaces
thoroughly with a soft cloth to
prevent a build-up of limescale
deposits.
20
Pan supports, controls
Remove the pan supports.
The pan supports and the controls can
be cleaned with a solution of warm
water and a little washing up liquid
applied with a soft sponge. Soak
stubborn soiling first to loosen it.
Finally, wipe dry using a soft cloth.
On stainless steel models:
Replace the pan supports carefully
to avoid scratching the surface.
Cleaning and care
Stainless steel surfaces
Ceramic surfaces
Clean stainless steel surfaces with a
solution of warm water and a little
washing up liquid applied with a soft
sponge. Soak stubborn soiling first to
loosen it. Wipe dry using a soft cloth.
Spillages etc. should be cleaned off as
soon as possible.
A proprietary non-abrasive cleaning
agent designed specifically for use on
stainless steel may be used, if wished.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions.
To help prevent re-soiling, a

needto be removed with a shielded
scraper blade.
Do not use washing up liquid on the
ceramic surface as it can leave a
blue sheen which may be difficult to
remove.
To remove any limescale deposits,
caused for example by water boiling
over and metallic marks (aluminium
deposits) apply a few drops of a
proprietary cleaning agent for ceramic
surfaces using a soft cloth or kitchen
paper towel. Follow manufacturer's
instructions on the packaging. The
Miele ceramic hob cleaner is available
from the Miele UK Spare Parts
Department.
Note that some cleaning agents contain
a protective additive designed to
prevent water marks and smears
adhering to the surface.

Connection to services
Important
This appliance should be installed
with plenty of space on either side.
See Installation Instruction Booklet
before making the gas and electrical
connection.
Gas connection
Connection to the gas supply, or
conversion from one type of gas to
another should only be undertaken
by an approved and registered gas
installer in strict accordance with
local and national safety and
building regulations, (e.g. Corgi
registered in the U.K.) Every
appliance should have its own
isolating valve and test point.
Check with your local gas supplier
about the type of gas and its
calorific value, and compare this
information with the type of gas
quoted on the hob data plate.
The installer is responsible for
ensuring that the appliance
functions correctly when installed.
The gas installation must be made in
such a way that the isolating valve is
visible and easily accessible after
the appliance has been built in.
