Ventilation
The cooling system is fully automatic. The cooling fan starts with a low speed when the calories
brought out by the electronic system reach a certain level. The ventilation starts his high speed
when the hob is intensively used. The cooling fan reduces his speed and stops automatically
when the electronic circuit is cooled enough.
STARTING-UP AND APPLIANCE MANAGEMENT
Before the first use
Clean your hob with a damp cloth, and then dry the surface thoroughly. Do not use detergent
which risks causing blue-tinted colour on the glass surface.
Induction principle
An induction coil is located under each heating zone. When it is engaged, it produces a variable
electromagnetic field which produces inductive currents in the ferromagnetic bottom plate of the
pan. The result is a heating-up of the pan located on the heating zone.

The cut out sizes are:
Appliance
Cut out
7325440
370 x 490 mm
Ensure that there is a distance of 50 mm between the hob and the wall or sides.
The hobs are classified as “Y” class for heat protection. Ideally the hob should be
installed with plenty of space on either side. There may be a wall at the rear and tall units
or a wall at one side. On the other side, however, no unit or divider must stand
higher than the hob.
The piece of furniture or the support in which the hob is to be fitted, as well as the edges
of furniture, the laminate coatings and the glue used to fix them, must be able to resist
temperatures of up to 100 °C.
The mural rods of edge must be heat-resisting.
Materials which are often used to make worktops expand on contact with water. To
protect the cut out edge, apply a coat of varnish or special sealant. Particular care must
be given to applying the adhesive joint supplied with the hob to prevent any leakage into
the supporting furniture. This gasket guaranties a correct seal when used in conjunction
with smooth work top surfaces.
Not to install the hob to the top of a not ventilated oven or a dishwasher.
To guarantee under the bottom of the hob casing a space of 20 mm to ensure a good air
circulation of the electronic device.
To guarantee between the work top and the top of the drawer or oven a space of 5 mm
to allow the exit of the air flow.
If a drawer is placed under the work, avoid to put into this drawer flammable objects (for
example: sprays) or not heat-resistant objects.
The safety gap between the hob and the cooker hood placed above must respect the
indications of the hood manufacturer. In case of absence of instructions respect a
distance minimum of 760 mm.
The connection cord should be subjected, after building, with no mechanical constraint,
such for example of the fact of the drawer.
The installation of the hob in no stationary sites (for example: boat) should be undertaken
by specialists.
