INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on the purchase of this quality appliance.
We, the manufacturer, trust that you will enjoy many years of trouble free use. Please read
these instructions carefully before using the hob. This book will provide you with
information on how to operate and care for your appliance in order that you gain the
maximum benefit from it.
UNPACKING
Please ensure that packaging material is disposed of in a responsible manner.
Plastic bags should be cut up to prevent children playing with them and accidentally
suffocating.
• If the appliance is damaged in any way, do not use it. Report the damage to your dealer,
who will take the necessary corrective action.
•
•
CUPBOARD DESIGN
Cooking appliances generate considerable heat. The layout and materials of the
mounting cabinet should take account of these characteristics.
• Surfaces and surrounding edges immediately adjacent to the hob should be able to
withstand temperatures of up to 100 C without delaminating or discolouring.
• Allow an unrestricted air space of at least 75mm underneath the underside of the hob for
ventilation and cooling purposes.
•
INSTALLATION
The hob should be installed in a ventilated cupboard fitted with a sturdy worktop and
must be secured using the fixing brackets provided.
• Invert the hob on the worktop adjacent to the aperture before making the electrical
connection. This will ensure sufficient cable length for subsequent servicing.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION
“This appliance must be earthed and the manufacturer and the seller
do not accept responsibility for any damage due to incorrect
installation or electrical connection.”
Earth leakage
This appliance should not be connected through an earth leakage system.
Refer to S.A.B.S. 0142
Connection to the power supply must be carried out by a licensed electrician, who will
ensure that the oven is correctly connected and safely earthed. The rated current is printed
on the serial number label attached to the base cover.
The appliance must be connected to the mains through a double pole isolating switch which
has a minimum clearance between the contacts of 3 mm. in both poles.
A means for disconnection must be provided in the fixed wiring.
SAFETY ADVICE
•
•
•
•
Only use the appliance for preparing food.
Always keep children away from the appliance when it is in use.
Do not leave hot fat or oil unattended. If overheating occurs, these could catch fire.
Switch off the power at the mains in the event of a fault or when cleaning the appliance.

•
The ringer timer may be used for timing the cooking period.
It does not switch off the plates but gives a loud ring when the selected time has elapsed.
Turn the control knob to 60 minutes to wind up the mechanism.
Return the knob to the desired time period.
When the time has elapsed the timer will ring for a few seconds.
SOLID PLATES
Red dot plates
• Plates featuring a red dot in the centre are high speed, high wattage
plates for increased performance
• For your safety these plates are fitted with thermal limiters. Should a
plate be accidentally switched on and left unattended, the limiter will
reduce the power output of the plate and minimise the risk of
overheating and the possibility of fire.
Caring for Solid Plates
Before using the plates for the first time, switch them on for about 4 minutes at the
highest setting. This allows the factory applied protective coating to burn in.
• To prevent blotchy discolouration and corrosion, moisture from spatters and spills
should be cleaned off immediately.
• To clean the plates, wipe them with a damp cloth or nylon pad. A little liquid detergent
may be used. Do not use metal scourers or sharp metal objects to clean the plates.
• After cleaning, dry the plates by switching them on for a short while.
• To prevent rust, periodically apply some, sewing machine oil or electrical hotplate
polish - available from Defy Service Centres. Extra attention is required in areas of high
humidity or in close proximity to the sea.
•
Recommendations
• Use only pots with a solid level base. An uneven base can prolong cooking times and
waste energy.
• Use pots with a base diameter slightly larger than the plate. This will ensure even heat
distribution and prevent spillage from dripping onto and staining the hot plate.
• Always cover the pot with a lid. This will conserve energy and minimise spillage.
• Thermal shock could damage the plates. Do not put cold pots on very hot plates.
Plate controls
Select the heat level by turning the relevant plate control knob to the required setting.
The higher the number selected, the hotter the temperature of the plate will be.
The plate indicator light will glow when a plate is switched on.

NOTE: THE WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER THE REPLACEMENT
OR REPAIR OF RUSTED OR CORRODED PLATES.
CERAN® SMOOTH TOP
WARNING In the unlikely event of the Ceran sustaining accidental damage or cracks,
switch off the appliance at the mains to avoid electric shock and have the panel replaced
before further use.
Plate controls
• Select the heat level by turning the relevant plate control knob to the required setting.
The higher the number selected, the hotter the temperature of the plate will be.
• The plate indicator light will glow when the plate is switched on. Shortly thereafter the
hot surface indicator light on the hob will switch on and will remain on for 20 to 30
minutes after the plate is switched off.. This is a reminder that the hob surface is still too
hot to touch.
• Some models feature a dual zone plate. Turning the control knob to the left,
activates the inner zone and turning it to the right activates both the inner and
outer zones.
Caring for the Ceran hob
• Ceran is a tough, durable material, which provides a beautiful, functional and long
lasting cooking surface. To keep it looking good, it needs to be treated with care and
cleaned regularly.
• Spillage should be wiped off as soon as possible with a damp cloth, preferably while the
hob is still warm.
• Clean the hob with a nylon pad and ‘Smooth top cleaner’. A sample of this cleaner is
supplied with the unit. Replenishment cleaner is available from all Defy Service Centres.
• If necessary stubborn spills may be removed using the blade scraper provided.
• Do not use metal scourers or coarse abrasive powders as these could scratch the Ceran.
• Regular cleaning after use will prevent dirt build up and ensure that the hob remains
bright and attractive.
• Wipe the hob surround with a damp hot soapy cloth and dry.
Recommendations (see also the enclosed ‘CERAN’ leaflet)
• Use only pots with a solid level base. An uneven base will prolong cooking time and
waste energy.
• Use pots with a base diameter slightly larger than that of the thermal area. This will
ensure even heat distribution and prevent spillage from dripping onto and staining the
hot zone.
• Always cover the pot with a lid. This will conserve energy and minimize spillage.
• Save energy by switching the plate off 5 to 10 minutes before the end of a lengthy
cooking period. The Ceran hob will retain sufficient residual heat to complete the
cooking process.
• A pot with rough edges could scratch the Ceran if it were dragged across the surface of
the hob.
• Any spillage of sugar solution such as jam, must be removed immediately. If allowed to
cool on the Ceran it could pit and damage the surface.
• Do not cover the Ceran with aluminium foil and do not use poor quality aluminium pots.
These will leave unsightly deposits which in time, could adhere to the Ceran.
PROBLEM CHECK

PLEASE CHECK THE FOLLOWING
The mains distribution board.
