Installation
BEFORE CONNECTION
• Check whether your oven has suffered any damage during transport (deformed door or
door seal, etc.). If you see any signs of damage, contact your dealer before use.
• Verify the power voltage. If there is a PERMANENT undervoltage (200-210 volts), consult your
electrical installer.
LOCATION
• The appliance should be installed at a distance of 85 cm above floor.
• Place the oven on a flat and horizontal surface, away from any source of heat or
steam. To ensure the stability of the microwave oven, the front left foot is
adjustable (5 positions). Turn it to raise or lower the appliance.
•Make sure that air may circulate freely around the oven.
Leave sufficient space around the oven :
14 cm
cm
- 5 cm between the sides of the oven
and any walls or objects
10
- 14 cm above the oven
5 cm
- 10 cm behind the oven.
5 cm
• Make sure that nothing obstructs the ventilation louvers at the back of the appliance.
• Some ovens are designed for flush-fitting. To obtain the corresponding kit, consult your dealer
• Make sure the electrical plug will be accessible after installation.
• Do not use your appliance immediatly (wait approx. 1-2 hours) after transfer from a cold
place to a warm place as condensation may cause a malfunction.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
• Your installation must be protected by a 13 Amp thermal fuse.
• It is mandatory to use a power point with a ground terminal, connected in accordance with
current safety regulations.
• In your electrical installation, provide a device that is accessible to the installer, capable of
separating the appliance from the mains power and whose contact opening is at least 3 mm
at all of the poles.
• If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or
similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.
3
Warning
• Your appliance is designed exclusively for the domestic purposes of defrosting, heating or
cooking foods. The manufacturer bears no responsibility in the case of improper usage.
• Only use ustensils that are suitable for use in microwave ovens.
• To avoid deterioration of your microwave oven, never operate it empty or without the
turntable.
• Never tamper with the lock mechanism of your microwave oven; you could cause damage
requiring repair by an authorised technician.
• When heating food in plastic or paper containers, keep an eye on the oven due to the
possibility of ignition.
• It is not advisable to use metal recipients, forks, spoons, knives, metal ties or staples for
deep-freeze bags.
• The contents of feeding bottles are baby food jars shall be stirred or shaken and the
temperature checked before consumption in order to avoid burns.
• Only allow children to use the oven without supervision when adequate instructions
have been given so that the child is able to use the oven in a safe way and understands
the hazards of improper use.
• Liquids and other foods must not be heated in sealed containers they are liable to explode.
• Eggs in their shell and whole hard-boiled eggs should not be heated in microwave ovens
since they may explode, even after microwave heating has ended.
• Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed eruptive boiling, therefore care
must be taken when handling the container.
• For small amounts (one sausage, a single croissant, etc.), place a glass of water alongside the food item.
• Time settings that are too long may dry out and burn the food. To avoid such incidents,
never use the same cooking times as those recommended for traditional ovens.
• If smoke is observed, switch off or unplug the appliance and keep the door closed in
order to stifle any flames.
• In order to evacuate moisture, your appliance is fitted with a delayed ventilation function. Depending on the applied cooking mode (solo / grill / combination), the oven ventilation will continue to operate after the cooking end.
