BEFORE USING THE GLASS CERAMIC HOB
• To make the most of your new appliance,
please read the user instructions carefully and
keep them handy for future consultation.
INSTALLATION
Cooktop
• The cooktop must be set into a worktop between
20 mm and 50 mm deep
• There must be nothing between the cooktop and the
oven (cross rails, brackets, etc.).
• The distance between the lower face of the glass
ceramic hob and the cupboard or separating panel
must be at least 20 mm.
• If the cooktop is to be installed next to a column unit,
leave a distance of at least 100 mm from the edge of the
cooktop to the side of the column unit.
• Make an opening in the worktop, respecting the dimensions
indicated in the enclosed product description sheet.
• Apply the supplied gasket to the cooktop (unless it has already
been fitted), after having cleaned its surface.
Important
In order to prevent the electronic circuits from overheating, and
therefore from being damaged, we recommend the following:
• Do not install the cooktop near a dishwasher or
washing machine, so that the electronic circuits do not
come into contact with steam or moisture, which could
damage them.
If an oven (from our range of ovens) is installed beneath the
cooktop, make sure that it is equipped with a cooling system.
If the temperature of the electronic circuits exceeds the
maximum permitted temperature, the cooktop will switch off
automatically; in this case, wait for a few minutes until the
internal temperature of the electronic circuits reaches a tolerable
level, at which point it will be possible to switch the hob on again.
• Switch the hob off after use.

INSTALLATION
Assembly
A) If the worktop is made of wood, use the appropriate
brackets, spring clips and screws provided.
• Position the 4 clips (A) around the cooktop frame, in the
slots provided, see Fig. 1
• Measure the centre of the vertical sides of the cut out a
shown in Fig. 2.
• Position the centre of the brackets (C) on the centre of the
side previously identified.
• The upper edge of the brackets must be flush with the
worktop surface.
• Secure using the 4 screws (B) provided that should screwed
into the pre-prepared holes.
• Insert the cook hob into the pre-prepared hole ensuring that
the clips (A) lodge into the bracket slots provided
(C Fig. 4 e 5).

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
Electrical connection must be made before connecting the
appliance to the electricity supply. The appliance must be
installed by a qualified electrician who is fully aware of current
safety and installation regulations. Specifically, installation must be
carried out in compliance with the regulations of the local
electricity supply company. Make sure that the voltage shown on
the rating plate is the same as the power supply voltage in your
home. Regulations require that the appliance be earthed: use
conductors (including the earth conductor) of the appropriate
size only. The manufacturer declines all liability for injury to
persons or animals and for damage to property resulting from
failure to observe the above regulations. For the electrical
connection use a H05RR-F type cable as indicated in the table
below:
Power supply voltage.
Conductors
Amount x size
230V ~ +
3 X 4 mm2
230-240V ~ +
3 X 4 mm2 (Australia only)
230V 3~ +
4 X 1.5 mm2
400V 3N ~ +
5 X 1.5 mm2
400V 2N ~ +
4 X 1.5 mm2
The appliance must be connected to the electricity supply
by means of an all-pole disconnect switch with minimum
contact gap of 3 mm.
Attention: the power supply cable must be long enough to allow
the cooktop to be removed from the worktop and must be
positioned so as to avoid damage or overheating caused by
contact with the base.
Connecting to the terminal board
Note: the yellow/green earth wire must be connected to the
terminal with the symbol
and must be longer than the other
wires.
• Remove approx. 70 mm of the cable sheath from the power
supply cable (B).
• Strip approx. 10 mm of sheath from the wires. Then insert the
power supply cable into the cable clamp and connect the
wires to the terminal block as indicated in the connection
diagram placed close to the terminal block itself.
• Secure the power supply cable (B) by means of the cable
clamp.
• Close the terminal board with the cover (A) securing it with
the screw provided.
• After the electrical connection, fit the hob from the top and
hook it to the support springs, according to the illustration.

ENERGY SAVING TIPS
• Use pots and pans whose bottom diameter is equal to that of
the cooking zone or slightly larger.
• Only use flat-bottomed pots and pans.
• If possible, keep pot lids on when cooking.
• Cook vegetables, potatoes, et. with little water in order to cut
down cooking time.
• A pressure cooker allows you to save even more energy and
time.
NO!

CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF THE GLASSCERAMIC HOB
Clean the cooktop, when it is cool, after each use. This will
prevent the build-up of dirt and make cleaning easier.
Important: at all costs avoid the use of high pressure water or
steam cleaning equipment.
• Use a clean cloth, absorbent kitchen wipes and washing up
liquid or a specific glass ceramic cleaner.
• Remove baked-on dirt with the special scraper tool
(if provided) and specific cleaning products.
• Food spills should be cleaned off before they bake onto the
glass ceramic surface.
• Foods with high sugar content (toffee, fruit juice, jam, etc.)
that boil over while cooking, or spattered sugar stains must be
immediately removed using a scraper.
• Do not use abrasive products, bleach, oven-cleaner spray or
pan scourers.
The cooktop should be treated periodically with a proprietary
brand of protective wax for glass-ceramic hobs.
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Cooktop not working
•
•
•
1.
When pressing the control buttons, did you
follow the instructions in the section “Using
the hob” in the enclosed ”Product
Description Sheet”?
Is there perhaps a power failure?
Did you dry the hob carefully after cleaning it?
If a cooking zone has been selected and an “F”
or an “ER” appear on the display followed
by a number, contact the After Sales
Service and inform them.
2.
- With the exception of the message “F03” or
“ER03” that identifies the incorrect
cleaning of the controls area.
- To solve the problem follow the instruction
in the ICleaning and maintenance of the
glass-ceramic hobI paragraph.
If the hob does not work following intensive
use, the hob internal temperature is too high.
Wait a few minutes until the hob cools down.
