Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
 Unauthorised installation, maintenance and repairs can cause
considerable danger for the user. Installation, maintenance and re‐
pairs must only be carried out by a Miele authorised technician.
 Do not use a damaged appliance. It could be dangerous. Check
the hob for visible signs of damage.
 Reliable and safe operation of this hob can only be assured if it
has been connected to the mains electricity supply.
 The electrical safety of this hob can only be guaranteed when cor‐
rectly earthed. It is essential that this standard safety requirement is
met. If in any doubt please have the electrical installation tested by a
qualified electrician.
 To avoid the risk of damage to the hob, make sure that the con‐
nection data on the data plate (voltage and frequency) match the
mains electricity supply before connecting it to the mains.
Consult a qualified electrician if in doubt.
 Do not connect the hob to the mains electrical supply by a multi-
socket adapter or extension lead. These are a fire hazard and do not
guarantee the required safety of the appliance.
 For safety reasons, this hob may only be used after it has been
built in.
 This hob must not be used in a non-stationary location (e.g. on a
ship).
 Never open the casing of the hob.
Touching or tampering with electrical connections or components
and mechanical parts is highly dangerous to the user and can cause
operational faults.
 While the hob is under guarantee, repairs should only be under‐
taken by a Miele authorised service technician. Otherwise the guar‐
antee is invalidated.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
 Miele can only guarantee the safety of the appliance when genu‐
ine original Miele replacement parts are used. Faulty components
must only be replaced by Miele spare parts.
 The hob is not intended for use with an external timer switch or a
remote control system.
 The hob must be connected to the electricity supply by a qualified
electrician (see "Electrical connection").
 If the connection cable is damaged, it must be replaced with a
special connection cable type H 05 VV-F (PVC insulated). See "Elec‐
trical connection".
 The hob must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply
during installation, maintenance and repair work. Ensure that power
is not supplied to the appliance until after it has been installed or un‐
til any maintenance or repair work has been carried out.
 If the hob is fitted with a communication module, in addition to
disconnecting the hob, this module must also be disconnected from
the mains electricity during installation and maintenance of the hob
as well as while any repair work is being carried out.
 Danger of electric shock.
Do not use the hob if it is faulty, or if the ceramic surface is cracked,
chipped or damaged in any way. Switch it off immediately, discon‐
nect it from the mains electricity supply and contact Miele.
 If the hob is installed behind a furniture panel (e.g. a door), ensure
that the door is never closed whilst the hob is in use. Heat and mois‐
ture can build up behind a closed furniture panel and cause subse‐
quent damage to the hob, the housing unit and the floor. Do not
close the door until the residual heat indicators have gone out.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
 The hob gets hot when in use and remains hot for a while after
being switched off. There is a danger of burning until the residual
heat indicators go out.
 Due to the high temperatures radiated, objects left near the hob
when it is in use could catch fire.
Do not use the hob to heat up the room.
 Oil and fat can overheat and catch fire. Do not leave the hob unat‐
tended when cooking with oil and fat. If it does ignite do not attempt
to put the flames out with water.
Disconnect the hob from the mains and use a suitable fire blanket,
saucepan lid, damp towel or similar to smother the flames.
 Flames could set the grease filters of a cooker hood on fire. Do
not flambé under a cooker hood.
 Spray canisters, aerosols and other inflammable substances can
ignite when heated. Therefore do not store such items or substances
in a drawer under the hob. Cutlery inserts must be heat-resistant.
 Do not heat an empty pan.
 Do not heat up food in closed containers e.g. tins or sealed jars
on the hob, as pressure can build up in the container, causing it to
explode.
 Do not cover the hob, e.g. with a hob cover, a cloth or protective
foil. The material could catch fire, shatter or melt if the hob is switch‐
ed on by mistake or if residual heat is still present.
 When the appliance is switched on either deliberately or by mis‐
take, or when there is residual heat present, there is the risk of any
metal items left on the hob heating up, with the danger of burning.
Depending on the material, other items left on the hob could also
melt or catch fire. Damp pan lids might adhere to the ceramic sur‐
face and be difficult to dislodge. Do not use the appliance as a rest‐
ing place. Switch the cooking zones off after use.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
 You could burn yourself on the hot hob. Protect your hands with
heat-resistant pot holders or gloves when handling hot pots and
pans. Do not let them get wet or damp, as this causes heat to trans‐
fer through the material more quickly with the risk of scalding or
burning yourself.
 When using an electrical appliance, e.g. a hand-held food blen‐
der, near the hob, ensure that the cable of the electrical appliance
cannot come into contact with the hot hob. The insulation on the ca‐
ble could become damaged.
 Grains of salt, sugar and sand (e.g. from cleaning vegetables) can
cause scratches if they get under pan bases. Make sure that the ce‐
ramic surface is clean before placing pans on it.
 Even a light object can cause damage in certain circumstances.
Do not drop anything on the ceramic surface.
 Placing hot pans on the sensors and indicators could damage to
the electronics underneath. Do not place hot pans on the sensors or
indicators.
 Do not allow solid or liquid sugar, or pieces of plastic or alumini‐
um foil to get onto the cooking zones when they are hot, as they can
damage the ceramic surface when it cools down. If this should oc‐
cur, switch off the appliance and scrape off all the sugar, plastic or
aluminium residues whilst still hot, using a shielded scraper blade.
Wear oven gloves. Allow the cooking zones to cool down and clean
them with a suitable ceramic hob cleaning agent.
 Pans which boil dry can cause damage to the ceramic glass. Do
not leave the hob unattended whilst it is being used.
 Only use pots and pans with smooth bases. Rough bases will
scratch the ceramic glass.
 Lift pans into position on the hob. Sliding them into place can
cause scuffs and scratches.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
 Induction heating works extremely quickly and so the base of the
pan could heat up to the temperature at which oil or fat self-ignites
within a very short time. Do not leave the hob unattended whilst it is
being used.
 Heat oil or fat for a maximum of one minute. Do not use the Boos‐
ter function to heat oil or fat.
 For people fitted with a heart pacemaker: Please note that the
area immediately surrounding the hob is electromagnetically charg‐
ed. It is very unlikely to affect a pacemaker. However, if in any doubt,
consult the manufacturer of the pacemaker or your doctor.
 To prevent damage to items which are susceptible to electromag‐
netic fields, e.g. credit cards, digital storage devices, pocket calcula‐
tors, etc, do not leave them in the immediate vicinity of the hob.
 Metal utensils stored in a drawer under the hob can become hot if
the appliance is used intensively for a long time. Do not store any
metal items or utensils in a drawer under the hob.
 This hob is fitted with a cooling fan. If a drawer is fitted directly
underneath the hob, ensure that there is sufficient space between
the drawer and its contents and the underside of the appliance in or‐
der to ensure sufficient ventilation of the hob. Do not store pointed
or small items or paper in the drawer. They could get in through the
ventilation slots or be sucked into the housing by the fan and dam‐
age the fan or impair cooling.
 Do not use two pans on a cooking zone, extended zone or Pow‐
erFlex zone at the same time.
 If the pan only partially covers the cooking zone, the handle could
become very hot.
Ensure that you always place the pan in the middle of the cooking
zone.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
Cleaning and care
 Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this hob.
The steam could reach electrical components and cause a short cir‐
cuit.
 If the hob is built in over a pyrolitic oven, the hob should not be
used whilst the pyrolitic process is being carried out, as this could
trigger the overheating protection mechanism on the hob (see rele‐
vant section).
12
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing mate‐
rial
Disposing of your old appli‐
ance
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances of‐
ten contain valuable materials. They al‐
so contain materials which, if handled
or disposed of incorrectly, could be po‐
tentially 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 it with your household
waste.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the manufactur‐
ing process and also reduces the
amount of waste in landfill sites.
Please dispose of it at your local com‐
munity waste collection / recycling cen‐
tre or contact your Dealer for advice.
Ensure that it presents no danger to
children while being stored for disposal.

Before using for the first time
 Please stick the extra data plate for
the appliance supplied with this doc‐
umentation in the space provided in
the "After sales service, data plate,
guarantee" section of this booklet.
 Remove any protective wrapping and
stickers.
Cleaning the hob for the first
time
 Before using for the first use, clean
the hob with a damp cloth only and
then wipe dry.
Switching on the hob for the
first time
The metal components have a protec‐
tive coating which may give off a slight
smell when heated up for the first time.
The induction coils may also give off a
slight smell for the first few hours of op‐
eration. This smell will be less noticea‐
ble with each subsequent use before
dissipating completely.
The smell and any vapours given off do
not indicate a faulty connection or ap‐
pliance and they are not hazardous to
health.
Please note that the heating up time
on induction hobs is very much short‐
er than on conventional cooktops.
17
Induction
The induction principle
An induction coil is located under each
cooking zone. When a cooking zone is
switched on, this coil creates a magnet‐
ic field which impacts directly on the
base of the pan and heats it up. The
cooking zone itself is heated up indi‐
rectly by the heat given off by the pan.
An induction cooking zone only works
when a ferromagnetic pan is placed on
it (see "Pans"). The induction cooking
zone automatically recognises the size
of the pan.
On the control scale of the cooking
zone, power levels 1 to 9 flash:
– if the zone has been switched on
without a pan in place, or if the pan is
unsuitable (non-magnetic base),
– if the diameter of the base of the pan
is too small,
– if the pan is taken off the cooking
zone when it is switched on.
If a suitable pan is placed on the cook‐
ing zone within 3 minutes you can con‐
tinue as normal.
If no pan or an unsuitable pan is placed
on the cooking zone, the cooking zone
will switch off automatically after 3 mi‐
nutes.
18
 When the appliance is switched
on either deliberately or by mistake,
or when there is residual heat
present, there is the risk of any metal
items placed on the hob (e.g. cutlery)
heating up.
Danger of burning.
Do not use the hob as a resting
place for items. Switch the cooking
zones off after use with the appropri‐
ate sensor.
Induction
Noises
When using an induction cooking zone,
the following noises can occur in the
pan, depending on what it is made of
and how it has been constructed.
On the higher power settings, it might
buzz. This will decrease or cease alto‐
gether when the power setting is re‐
duced.
If the pan base is made of layers of dif‐
ferent materials (e.g. in a sandwiched
base), it might emit a cracking sound.
Whistling might occur if linked zones
(see "Booster") are being used at the
same time, and the pans also have
bases made of layers of different mate‐
rials.
You might hear a clicking sound from
the electronic switches, especially on
lower power settings.
You might hear a whirring sound when
the cooling fan switches on. It switches
on to protect the electronics when the
hob is being used intensively. The fan
may continue to run after the appliance
has been switched off.
19
Induction
Pans
The following pan types are suitable:
– Stainless steel with a base that can
be magnetised,
– enamelled steel,
– cast iron.
The following pan types are not suita‐
ble:
– Stainless steel pans without a mag‐
netic base,
– aluminium and copper pans,
– glass, ceramic or earthenware pots
and pans.
To test whether a pot or pan is suitable
for use on an induction hob, hold a
magnet to the base of the pan. If the
magnet sticks, the pan is suitable.
If an unsuitable pan is used, the 1-9
power levels will flash on the control
scale of the cooking zone.
The composition of the pan base can
affect the evenness of the cooking re‐
sults (e.g. when browning pancakes).
20
– To make optimum use of the cooking
zones, choose pans with a suitable
diameter (see "Cooking zones"). If
the pan is too small it will not be rec‐
ognised and the 1-9 power levels will
flash on the control scale of the zone.
– Only use pots and pans with smooth
bases. Rough bases will scratch the
ceramic glass.
– Lift pans into position on the hob.
Sliding them into place can cause
scuffs and scratches.
– Often the maximum diameter quoted
by manufacturers refers to the diam‐
eter of the top rim of the pot or pan.
The diameter of the base (generally
smaller) is more important.
Tips on saving energy
– Use a lid whenever possible to mini‐
mise heat loss.
– Select a smaller pan when cooking
small quantities. A smaller pan uses
less energy than a larger pan with
very little in it.
– Cook with as little water as possible.
– Once food has come to the boil or
the oil in the pan is hot enough for
frying, reduce the heat to a lower set‐
ting.
– Use a pressure cooker to reduce
cooking times.
21
Setting range
The hob is programmed with 9 power levels at the factory. If you wish to fine-tune
a setting, you can extend the power setting range to 17 power levels (see "Pro‐
gramming").

These settings should only be taken as a guide. The power of the induction coils will vary
depending on the size and material of the pan. For this reason, it is possible that the set‐
tings will need to be adjusted slightly to suit your pans. As you use the hob, you will get to
know which settings suit your pans best. When using new pans that you are not familiar
with, set the power level below the one specified.
22
Operation
How the hob is operated
The glass ceramic hob is equipped with
electronic sensor controls which react
to finger contact. For safety reasons, in
order to switch the hob on, the On/
Off  sensor needs to be touched for a
little longer than the other sensors.
A tone sounds each time a sensor is
touched.
When the hob is turned off, only the
symbols for the On/Off  and System
Lock/Safety Lock  sensors are visible.
When you switch on the hob, all other
sensors light up. When you switch a
cooking zone on, the  sensor lights up
in brightness level 2, and the  through
 sensors light up in brightness level 1.
When you set a power level, the  sen‐
sor up to the set power level light up in
brightness level 2.
If the booster or keeping warm function
is set, the corresponding sensor lights
up in brightness level 2.
Malfunction due to dirty and/or cov‐
ered sensors
If the sensors are dirty or covered
this could cause them to fail to react,
to activate a function or even to
switch the hob off automatically (see
"Safety switch-off"). Placing hot
pans on the sensors/indicators can
damage the electronic unit under‐
neath.
Keep the sensors and indicators
clean and do not place anything on
top of them. Do not place hot pans
on them.
23
Operation
 Fire hazard.
Do not leave the hob unattended
whilst it is being used.
Please note that the heating up time
on induction hobs is very much
shorter than on conventional hobs.
Switching on
 Touch the  sensor.
All of the sensors will light up. If no fur‐
ther entry is made, the hob will switch
itself off after a few seconds for safety
reasons.
Selecting/changing the power
level
A cooking zone is not active if the 
sensor is the only one lit up in the con‐
trol panel.
 To switch a cooking zone on, touch
the  sensor for that cooking zone.
All sensors will light up.
 Touch the appropriate number sensor
for the power level you want.
Switching off
 To switch a cooking zone off, touch
the  sensor for that cooking zone.
 To switch off the hob and all the
cooking zones, touch the  sensor.
Residual heat indicator
If a cooking zone is hot, the residual
heat indicator and the  sensor will light
up on the control scale after switching
the zone off.
24
The bars in the residual heat indicator
will go out one after another as the
cooking zones cool down. The last bar
and the  sensor will go out at the
same time.
The residual heat indicators will flash if
there is a power cut during use or
while residual heat is still present or if
you have opened the programming
function while residual heat is still
present.
 Danger of burning. Do not touch
the cooking zones whilst the residual
heat indicators are lit up.
Operation
Setting the power level - ex‐
tended setting range
 Touch the area between the sensors.
The sensors in front of and after the in‐
terim level will light up brighter than the
other sensors.
Example:
if you have set power level 7. the num‐
bers 7 and 8 will be brighter than the
other numbers.
PowerFlex cooking area
The PowerFlex cooking zones can be
combined to form a PowerFlex cooking
area (see "Guide to the appliance Hob"). Settings for the linked cooking
area are controlled by the front or the
left PowerFlex cooking zone (depending
on model).

When Auto heat-up has been activated,
the cooking zone switches on automati‐
cally at the highest power setting and
then switches to the continued cooking
setting. The heat-up time depends on
which continued cooking setting has
been chosen (see chart).
During the heat-up time (see chart), the
continued cooking level set will flash.

The continued cooking settings with a dot
after the number are only available if the
power level range has been extended (see
"Programming").
Operation
Booster
The cooking zones are equipped with a
Booster or TwinBooster (see "Guide to
the appliance – Hob"). You can use the
booster function for a maximum of two
cooking zones at the same time.
When activated, the power is boosted
for a maximum of 15 minutes so that
large quantities can be heated quickly,
e.g. when boiling water for cooking
pasta.
The booster function can only be used
on two cooking zones at the same time.
Cooking zones are networked in pairs
to supply the power for the booster
function. When the booster function is
selected, a proportion of energy is tak‐
en away from the linked cooking zone
and the following happens within the
pairs:
– Auto heat-up is deactivated
– the power level is reduced
– the linked cooking zone is switched
off.
If the booster function is switched on
when
– no power level has been selected,
the cooking zone will revert automati‐
cally to level 9 at the end of the
booster time or if the booster func‐
tion is switched off before this.
– a power level has been selected, the
cooking zone will revert automatically
to the power level selected at the end
of the booster time or if the booster
function is switched off before this.

The system lock and safety lock are
deactivated if there is an interruption
to the power supply.
Three-finger control is the default set‐
ting. You can change the default to
one-finger control (see "Program‐
ming").
Your hob is equipped with a system
lock and a safety lock to prevent the
hob and the cooking zones being
switched on or any settings being al‐
tered.
The system lock is activated when the
hob is switched off. When it is activa‐
ted, the hob cannot be switched on and
the timer cannot be used. The hob is
programmed so that the system lock
must be activated manually. It can be
programmed to be activated automati‐
cally 5 minutes after the hob has been
switched off if the system lock is not
manually activated first (see "Program‐
ming").
The safety lock is set when the hob is

Safety switch-off
Safety switch-off with an overlong
cooking time
The safety switch-off mechanism is
triggered automatically if one of the
cooking zones is heated for an unusual‐
ly long period of time. This period of
time depends on the power level selec‐
ted. Once exceeded, the cooking zone
switches off and the residual heat indi‐
cators appear. The cooking zone can
be operated again after it has been
switched off and back on.
36
Safety switch-off if the sensors are
covered
Your hob will turn 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.  flashes in the timer
display and a buzzer sounds every 30
seconds for 10 minutes.
When you remove the objects or soil‐
ing,  goes out, the buzzer stops, and
the hob is ready for use again.
Safety features
Overheating protection
All the induction coils and cooling ele‐
ments for the electronics are fitted with
an overheating protection mechanism.
Before the induction coils or cooling el‐
ements get too hot, the overheating
protection mechanism cuts in in one of
the following ways:
Induction coils
– Any booster function in operation will
be switched off.
– The set power level will be reduced.
– The cooking zone turns off automati‐
cally.  flashes in the timer display
alternating with .
The overheating protection mechanism
can be triggered by:
– Heating up an empty pan.
– Fat or oil being heated on a high
power level.
– Insufficient ventilation to the under‐
side of the hob.
– A hot cooking zone being switched
on after an interruption to the power
supply.
If, despite removing the cause, the
overheating protection mechanism trig‐
gers again, contact Miele Service.
You can use the cooking zones again
as usual when the fault message has
gone out.
Cooling elements
– Any booster function in operation will
be turned off.
– The set power level will be reduced.
– The cooking zones turn off automati‐
cally.
The affected cooking zones can only be
used again if the cooling element has
cooled down to a safe level.
37
Cleaning and care
 Danger of burning.
Unsuitable cleaning agents
The cooking zones must be switch‐
ed off. The hob must have cooled
down.
To avoid damaging the surfaces of your
appliance, do not use:
 Danger of injury.
– cleaning agents containing soda, al‐
kalines, ammonia, acids or chlorides,
The steam from a steam cleaning
appliance could reach electrical
components and cause a short cir‐
cuit.
Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
the hob.
The use of unsuitable cleaning
agents can cause the surfaces to
discolour or alter.
All surfaces are susceptible to
scratching.
Remove any cleaning agent residues
immediately.
– washing-up liquid,
– cleaning agents containing descaling
agents
– stain or rust removers,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. pow‐
der cleaners and cream cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– grill and oven cleaners,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive brushes or sponges,
e.g. pot scourers, or sponges which
have been previously used with abra‐
sive cleaning agents,
– melamine eraser blocks,
38
Cleaning and care
Do not clean the area between the
glass-ceramic surface and the frame
or the frame and the worktop with
sharp, pointed objects.
This could damage to the seals.
Do not use washing-up liquid to
clean the appliance as washing-up
liquid will not remove all soiling and
deposits.
It will form an invisible coating which
will cause permanent discolouration
of the ceramic surface.
Clean the hob regularly with a suita‐
ble ceramic hob cleaning agent.
 Danger of burning.
Protect your hands with oven gloves
before using a shielded scraper
blade to remove sugar, plastic or alu‐
minium residues from the hot hob.
Should any sugar, plastic or alumini‐
um foil spill or fall onto a hot cooking
zone while it is in use, first switch off
the appliance. Then carefully scrape off
all the sugar, plastic or aluminium resi‐
dues from the hob immediately whilst
they are still hot, using a shielded scra‐
per blade. Allow the appliance to cool
down, and then clean as described
above.
Wipe all coarse soiling off using a damp
cloth. Stubborn soiling may need to be
removed with a shielded scraper blade.
Then clean the hob with Miele ceramic
and stainless steel hob cleaner (see
"Optional accessories") or a suitable
proprietary ceramic hob cleaner applied
with kitchen paper or a clean cloth. Do
not apply cleaner whilst the hob is still
hot, as this could result in marking.
Please follow the manufacturer's in‐
structions.
Finally wipe the hob with a damp cloth,
then dry with a soft, dry cloth. Residues
can burn onto the appliance the next
time it is used and cause damage to
the ceramic surface. Ensure that all
cleaning agent residues are removed.
Spots caused by limescale, water and
aluminium residues (spots with a metal‐
lic appearance) can be removed using
Miele's ceramic and stainless steel hob
cleaner.
39
Programming
You can programme certain settings on
the hob to suit your personal needs.
Several settings can be changed in
succession.
After starting the programming function,
 (programme) and  (status) will ap‐
pear in the timer display. On hobs that
have 3 cooking zones, an additional
display appears at the back left.
The programme is displayed in the front
left and rear left cooking zone control
scales.
Example:
Programme 3 =
front left , rear left 
Programme 14 =
front left , rear left 
The status is displayed in the front right
control scale.
After the programming function is exi‐
ted, an automatic reset is performed.
It is concluded when an indicator light
lights up briefly above the  sensor.
Do not turn the cooking zone on until
the reset is concluded.

Safety instructions for installation
 The appliance must only be installed and connected to the electricity sup‐
ply by a suitably qualified and competent person in strict accordance with cur‐
rent national and local safety regulations.
Fit the wall units and cooker hood before fitting the hob to avoid damaging 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. Any backmoulds must be of heat-resistant
material.
 The hob must not be installed over a fridge, fridge-freezer, freezer,
dishwasher, washing machine, washer-dryer or tumble dryer.
 This hob must not be installed above ovens or cookers unless
these have a built-in cooling down fan.
 After installation, ensure that nothing can come into contact with
the connection cable and that it is without hindrance.
 The electrical cable may not come into contact with any moving
kitchen component (e.g. a drawer) or be subject to mechanical ob‐
struction which could damage it.
 Observe carefully the safety clearances listed on the following pa‐
ges.
All dimensions are given in mm.
50
Safety distances
Safety distance above the hob
A minimum safety distance must be
maintained between the appliance and
the cooker hood above it. See the
cooker hood manufacturer's operating
and installation instructions for details.
If the manufacturer's instructions are
not available for the cooker hood, a
minimum safety distance of at least 760
mm must be maintained. For any flam‐
mable objects (e.g. utensil rails, wall
units etc) a minimum safety distance of
at least 760 mm must be maintained
between them and the appliance below.
When two or more appliances which
have different safety distances are
installed together below a cooker
hood, you should observe the great‐
est safety distance.
51
Safety distances
Safety distances to the sides
and back of the hob
Ideally the hob should be installed with
plenty of space on either side. There
may be a wall at the rear or a tall unit or
wall on one side (right or left) (see illus‐
trations).
 Minimum distance between the
back of the worktop cut-out and the
rear edge of the worktop:
50 mm
Not allowed
 Minimum distance between the
worktop cut-out and a wall or tall unit to
the right of it:
50 mm.
 Minimum distance between the
worktop cut-out and a wall or tall unit to
the left of it:
50 mm.

Not recommended
52
Safety distances
Minimum safety distances un‐
derneath the hob
To ensure sufficient ventilation to the
hob, a certain gap must be left between
the underside of the hob and any oven,
interim shelf or drawer.
The minimum gap between the under‐
side of the hob and
– the top of an oven is 15 mm.
Interim shelf
It is not necessary to fit an interim shelf
underneath the hob but one may be fit‐
ted if you wish.
Leave a gap of 10 mm at the back of
the shelf to accommodate the cable.
We recommend a gap at the front of the
shelf of 20 mm to ensure good ventila‐
tion.
– the top of an interim shelf is 15 mm.
– the base of a drawer is 75 mm.
53
Safety distances
Safety distance when installing the appliance near a wall with
additional niche cladding
A minimum safety distance must be maintained between the worktop cut-out and
any niche cladding to protect it from heat damage.
If the niche cladding is made from a combustible material (e.g. wood) a minimum
safety distance  of 50 mm must be maintained between the cut-out and the
cladding.
If the niche cladding is made from a non-combustible material (e.g. metal, natural
stone, ceramic tiles) the minimum safety distance  between the cut-out and the
cladding will be 50 mm less the thickness of the cladding.
Example: 15 mm niche cladding
50 mm - 15 mm = minimum safety distance of 35 mm

Seal between the hob and the work‐
top
Do not use sealant between the hob
and the worktop. This could result in
damage to the hob or the worktop if
the hob ever needs to be removed
for servicing.
The sealing strip under the edge of
the top part of the appliance pro‐
vides a sufficient seal for the work‐
top.
Grout lines  and the hatched area un‐
derneath the hob frame must be
smooth and even. If they are not the
hob will not sit flush with the worktop
and the sealing strip underneath the
hob will not provide a good seal be‐
tween the hob and the worktop.

Installation
Installing the hob
Preparing the worktop
 Feed the mains connection cable
down through the cut-out.
 Make the worktop cut-out as shown
in the building-in diagram. Observe
the safety distances (see "Safety dis‐
tances").
 Seal the cut surfaces with a suitable
sealant to avoid swelling caused by
moisture. The sealant must be heatresistant.
Make sure that the sealant does not
come into contact with the top of the
worktop.
The seal underneath the hob will hold
it securely in the cut-out. Any gap be‐
tween the frame and worktop will re‐
duce with time.
 Place the hob centrally in the cut-out.
When doing this, make sure that the
seal under the hob sits flush with the
worktop on all sides. This is impor‐
tant to ensure an effective seal all
round.
Do not use sealant (e.g. silicone).
If the seal does not meet the worktop
correctly on the corners, the corner ra‐
dius (≤ R4) can be carefully scribed to
suit.
 Connect the hob to the mains.
 Check that the hob works.
Connecting the mains connection
cable to the appliance
The mains connection cable must
only be connected by a suitably
qualified and competent person.
 Follow the instructions in the wiring
diagram (see "Electrical connection Wiring diagram").

Flush-fitted hobs
Installation notes
Flush fit hobs are only suitable for in‐
stallation in natural stone (granite,
marble), tiled or solid wood worktops.
Certain models are suitable for build‐
ing into glass worktops - please see
advice under "Building-in dimen‐
sions". When using a worktop made
from any other material, please check
first with the worktop manufacturer
that it is suitable for installing a flush
fit hob.
The internal width of the base unit
must be at least as wide as the inter‐
nal cut-out width for the hob (see
"Building-in dimensions"). This is to
ensure that the casing can be easily
removed for maintenance. If the un‐
derside of the hob is not freely acces‐
sible after installation, any sealant
used to plug the gaps around the ap‐
pliance must be removed to enable
the hob to be lifted out of the cut-out
should this be necessary.
58
The hob can be installed
– in a suitable cut-out in a natural
stone worktop.
– in a suitable cut-out in a tiled or solid
wood worktop or a glass worktop
with a wooden support frame. The
frame must be provided on site, and
is not supplied with the appliance.
