Do not keep the control knob
pressed for more than 15 seconds.
If the burner does not light even
after 15 seconds, release the
control knob, turn it the “off”
position and wait for at least 1
minute before trying to light the
burner again.
If the burner flame goes out
accidentally, turn the control knob
off and do not try to reignite for at
least 1 minute.
Always lower the flame or turn it
off before removing cookware
from the burners.
with
automatic integrated ignition:
1. Press the knob corresponding to the
burner ring and turn it anticlockwise
to the “Max” symbol (
). The oven
will light automatically.
2. Make sure the flame is even and turn
the knob to the required setting.
After lighting the flame, keep the
knob pressed for about 5 seconds;
this is the time necessary to deactivate
the safety valve, which would otherwise
stop the delivery of gas. Make sure the
flame is even and turn the knob to the
required setting.
If the flame fails to light after a few
attempts, check that the cap (shown in
figure 1 by letter A) and flame
spreaders (letter B) are in the correct
position.
To turn off the flame, turn the knob
clockwise to the symbol.
To light the burner rings more easily,

When lighting the hob manually
(in case of lack of electricity): Hold a
flame near the burner. Never turn the
control knob before approaching the
burner with the flame.
When switching on the mains,
after installation or a power cut, it
is quite normal for the spark
generator to be activated
automatically.
To ensure maximum burner efficiency, you should only use pots and
pans with a flat bottom fitting the size of
the burner used (see table).

Use only pans or pots with flat bottom.
If you use a saucepan which is
smaller than the recommended size, the flame will spread
beyond the bottom of the pan,
causing the handle to overheat.
As soon as a liquid starts boiling,
turn down the flame so that it will
barely keep the liquid simmering.
Take care when frying food in
hot oil or fat, as the overheated splashes could easily ignite.
The stainless steel can become
tarnished if excessively heated.
Therefore prolonged cooking with
potstones, earthenware pans or
cast-iron plates is inadvisable.
Also, do not use aluminium foil to
protect the top during use.
Do not place unstable or deformed pots on the rings: they
could tip over or spill their contents, causing accidents.
Pots must not enter the control zone.
If the control knobs become difficult to turn, please contact your
local Service Force Centre.

Hints and tips for using the hob
Start your cooking with a big flame
by turning the knob to the symbol
.
Then adjust the flame as necessary.
The outside of the flame is much hotter than its inside (nucleus). Accordingly
, the top of the flame should lick the bottom of the pan. Excessive flames mean
a waste of gas.
In contrast with electric grids, gas
burners do not require flat-bottomed
pans: the flames lick the bottom and
spread the heat all over the surface.
No special pans are required for gas
burners. However, thin-walled pans
transmit the heat to the food more
quickly than thick-walled ones.
Since heat doesn't spread evenly on
the pan's bottom, the food may only be
partially heated. Consequently it is advisable to stir the food many times.
A thick pan bottom prevents partial
overheating as it allows sufficient thermal compensation.
Avoid very small pans. Wide and
shallow pans are more suitable than narrow and deep ones as they allow a
faster heating. Cooking is not quickened
by placing narrow pans on wide burners. The result is just a waste of gas. For
a proper usage, place small pans on
small burners and large pans on large
burners.
Remember to cover pans to reduce
gas consumption.
Pottery
Remember that a wide-bottomed
pan allows a faster cooking than a narrow one.
Always use pots which properly fit
what you have to cook.
Particularly make sure that the pans
are not too small for liquids, since these
could easily overflow.
Moreover, the pans should not be
too large for a faster cooking. In fact,
grease and juices may spread on the
bottom and burn easily.
It is better to use non-openable
moulds for baking cakes. In fact, an
openable mould lets juices and sugar
leak through, falling on the bottom of the
oven and consequently burning on the
bottom of the baking tray, making cleaning difficult.
Avoid putting plastic-handled pans in
the oven as they are not heat-proof.
You should use pans with the right
diameter to fit the burner, in order to
make the most out of it, thus reducing
gas consumption.
It is also advisable to cover any boiling casserole and, as soon as the liquid
starts boiling, lower the flame enough to
keep the boiling point.
electrolux 13
Hints and tips for using the oven
Always cook with the oven door
closed.
Stand clear when opening the drop
down oven door. Do not allow it to
fall open - support the door using
the door handle, until it is fully open.
The oven has four shelf levels.
The shelf positions are counted
from the bottom of the oven as
shown in the diagram.
It is important that the oven accessories are correctly positioned.
Attention! - Do not place objects and cookware directly on
the oven base and do not cover
any part of the oven with aluminium
foil while cooking, as this could
cause a heat build-up which would
affect the baking results and
damage the oven enamel. Always
place pans, heat-resisting pans and
aluminium trays on the shelf which
has been inserted in the shelf
runners.

When food is heated, it produces
steam in the same way as a boiling
kettle does. When steam comes in
contact of the oven door glass, it
will condense and produce water
droplets.
To reduce condensation, ensure
the oven is well heated before placing food in the oven cavity. A short
oven pre-heating (about 10
minutes) will then be necessary
before any cooking. We recommend you to wipe away condensation after each use of the appliance.
Condensation and Steam
The oven is supplied with an exclusive system which produces a natural
circulation of air and the constant recycling of steam. This system makes it
possible to cook in a steamy environment and keep the dishes soft inside
and crusty outside. Moreover, the cooking time and energy consumption are
reduced to a minimum. During cooking
steam may be produced which can be
released when opening the oven door.
This is absolutely normal.
However, always stand back
from the oven when opening the
oven door during cooking or at
the end of it to allow any build
up of steam or heat to release.
Cookware
• Use any oven proof cookware which
•
•
will withstand temperatures of
230°C.
Baking trays, oven dishes, etc.
should not be placed directly against
the grid covering the fan at the back
of the oven, or placed on the oven
base.
Do not use baking trays larger than
30 cm x 35 cm (12 in x 14 in) as they
will restrict the circulation of heat and
may affect performance.

Choosing a suitable cookware
utensil
A) Aluminium, earthenware or Pyrex
cookware utensils reduce base
browning. They are therefore
recommended for cakes or roasts.
B) Cookware made of cast iron, ovenproof porcelain, or cookware with
non-stick surfaces and coloured
exteriors, increase base browning,
and are therefore recommended for
cooking pizzas, tarts and in general
all dishes which require even
browning on both the top and
bottom.

Hints and Tips on Cooking Fish Cooking times
and Meat
Cooking times vary according to the
You can place meat in oven proof
dishes, or directly on the oven shelf. In
this case, remember to place the grill
pan in the first position from the bottom
with some water in it. This will prevent
melted fat from falling onto the oven
base.
White meat, poultry and fish in general, need to be cooked at a medium
temperature (between 150°C and
175°C). If you need to cook red meat
(slightly browned on the outside and
more gently cooked in the inside), a
higher temperature (between 200°C and
230°C) for a short time is recommended.
Hints and Tips on baking
Cakes usually need to be cooked at
a medium temperature (between 150°C
and 200°C).
A short oven pre-heating (about 10
minutes) is recommended when cooking cakes or baking. Once the cooking
has been started, keep the oven door
closed during all the cooking time, and
check the cooking results through the
oven door glass.
Hints and Tips on grilling
If you need to grill meat or fish, place
them directly on the shelf after spreading a little oil on them.
In the grill function, heat comes only
from the top element. Therefore, you
need to adjust the cooking level depending on the thickness of the meat or
fish.
Always remember to place the grill
pan in the lower position with some water in it.
type of food to be cooked, its consistency, and volume.We suggest that you
take particular note of your first cooking
experiments with the oven, since operating in the same conditions for the
same dishes you will of course obtain
similar results.
Only experience will enable you to
make the appropriate changes to values
given on charts.

Conventional cooking
Turn the selector knob to the
symbol
and set the thermostat to the required
temperature.
In this way, heat is emitted from both
above and below and the food is cooked
evenly.
Grilling
Turn the selector knob to the
symbol
and set the thermostat to the required
temperature. When the grill is switched
on the oven emits heat from the top only
(particularly suitable for browning food).
Please note that the door should
be closed during grilling.
Fan cooking
Turn the selector knob to the
symbol
and set the thermostat to the required
temperature: in this type of cooking,
heat is emitted from the heating elements
at the top and bottom and a fan circulates
hot air. This enables you to cook different
dishes at the same time by placing them
on different shelves. To cook two dishes
at the same time, it is advisable to use
the first and third guide from the bottom.
For best results when using the oven for
only one dish, use the oven guides
nearest the bottom.

Maintenance and cleaning
Before any maintenance or
cleaning can be carried out,
you must DISCONNECT the appliance from the electricity
supply.
This appliance cannot be
cleaned with steam or with a
steam cleaning machine.
The hob top
The hob is best cleaned whilst it is
still warm, as spillage can be removed
more easily than if it is left to cool.
Regularly wipe over the hob top using a soft cloth well wrung out in warm
water to which a little washing up liquid
has been added. Avoid the use of the
following:
-
household detergent and bleaches;
impregnated pads unsuitable for
non-stick saucepans;
- steel wool pads;
- bath/sink stain removers.
Should the hob top become heavily
soiled, it is recommended that a cleaning product such as Hob Brite or Bar
Keepers Friend is used.
Pan supports
The pan supports are dishwasher
proof. If washing them by hand, take
care when drying them as the enamelling process occasionally leaves rough
edges. If necessary, remove stubborn
stains using a paste cleaner.
The burners
The burner caps and crowns can be
removed for cleaning.
Wash the burner caps and crowns
using hot soapy water, and remove
marks with a mild paste cleaner. A well
moistened soap impregnated steel wool
pad can be used with caution, if the
marks are particularly difficult to remove.
After cleaning, be sure to wipe dry
with a soft cloth.
Ignition electrode
The electric ignition is obtained
through a ceramic "electrode" with a
metal electrode inside. Keep these components well clean, to avoid difficult
lighting, and check that the burner
crown holes are not obstructed.
20 electrolux
Cleaning the oven
The oven should be kept clean
at all times. A build-up of fats or
other foodstuffs could result in
a fire, especially in the grill pan.
Cleaning materials
Before using any cleaning materials
on your oven, check that they are
suitable and that their use is
recommended by the manufacturer.
Cleaners that contain bleach should
NOT be used as they may dull the
surface finishes. Harsh abrasives should
also be avoided.
• Never use steam or steam machines
to clean the appliance.
External cleaning
Regularly wipe over the control panel, oven door and door seal using a soft
cloth well wrung out in warm water to
which a little washing up liquid has been
added.
To prevent damaging or weakening
the door glass panels avoid the use of
the following:
• Household detergent and
bleaches
• Impregnated pads unsuitable
for non-stick saucepans
• Brillo/Ajax pads or steel wool
pads
• Chemical oven pads or
aerosols
• Rust removers
• Bath/Sink stain removers
Clean the outer and inner door glass
using warm soapy water. Should the inner door glass become heavily soiled it
is recommended that a cleaning product
such as Hob Brite, or Bar Keepers Friend is used.
electrolux 21
The oven door and its gasket
Clean the oven door glass with warm
soapy water and a soft cloth only. Never
use harsh abrasives.
DO NOT clean the oven door while
the glass panels are warm. If this
precaution is not observed the
glass panel may shatter.
If the door glass panel becomes
chipped or has deep scratches,
the glass will be weakened and
must be replaced to prevent the
possibility of the panel shattering.
Contact your local Service Centre
who will be pleased to advise
further.
)
Models in stainless steel or aluminium:
We recommend that you clean the
oven door using only a wet sponge and
dry it up after cleaning with a soft cloth.
Never use steel wool, acids or
abrasive products as they can damage
the oven surface.
Clean the oven control panel following
the same precautions.
The correct operation of the oven is
ensured by a gasket placed round the
edge of the oven cavity.
• Periodically check the condition of
this gasket. If necessary, clean it without using abrasive cleaning products.
• If the gasket is damaged, call your local Service Centre. Do not use the
oven until it has been repaired.
22 electrolux
Oven lamp replacement
