YOUR AGA COOKER
Your AGA is an electric, heat-storage storage cooker.
The cooker heater core accepts an electrical power
charge overnight to heat the core up to 725°C,
whereupon heat is released at a controlled rate to keep
the cooker temperature steady when it is not in use.
A complete overnight charge provides sufficient heat for
normal cooking at any time of the day.
However for the most effective operation of the cooker
the following points should be carefully observed:
1. Close the insulating lids whenever the hot plates are
not in use.
2. Cook as much as possible in the ovens.
3. Utensils with ground flat bases must be used to make
perfect contact with the hotplates.
4. Take care, when closing the oven doors, to lift them
onto the catch.
5. Clean the hot plates regularly with the wire brush.

AGA Book
Your cooker has been designed to accept power charges
at the preferential cost rate. On reaching temperature no
further power will pass to the cooker at this preferential
rate.
An 7 hour charge in each 24 hours is normally sufficient
for most cooking needs, but in the event of abnormal
cooking loads the cooker can be adopted for use with
most TARIFF periods and Electrical supplies. Depending
on the supply available, the cooker will automatically take
a charge if the Core Temperature drops below 375°C
until 375°C is restored. (This is indicated by the red LED
pulsing).
A full description of cooking with your AGA is given in the
AGA Book.

If there is any doubt as to the application of the supply
available, your AGA distributor will advise.
Cheap rate (CR) period (s) are to be controlled by
Teleswitch Operation (as recommended by AGA) or by
external Programmable Timer.
Teleswitching requires no manual operation or time
setting by the Installer or User.
If an external Programmable Timer is to be fitted the
Installer is to determine local (CR) Tariff period(s) and to
set the time accordingly. It is the responsibility of the
installer to supply details of the Timer and advise if it
becomes necessary for any reason to reset.

THE HEAT INDICATOR
Fig. 2
DESN 515920
The heat indicator above the Roasting oven door is a guide to the stored heat within the AGA, and does not directly
relate to the Roasting oven centre oven temperature.
It has 3 sections black, silver and red.
To obtain your preferred working temperature the control knob can be adjusted slightly. Once set it is not recommended
to adjust on a regular basis. An AGA is designed to work at an optimum setting.
The optimum performance is usually achieved when the indicator is showing a position within one of the black segments
in the silver area.
Since the purpose of the heat indicator is to show that the AGA contains the full amount of stored heat it is best to refer to
it first thing in the morning or after a period of several hours during which no cooking has been done.
NOTE: IT DOES NOT INDICATE THE OVEN TEMPERATURE.

CONTROL PANEL
SERVICING
Within the rear, right-hand top plate shroud, there are the
following controls (See Fig. 1):
We recommend that an annual inspection check is
carried out by your AGA Distributor to ensure that your
cooker continues to operate safely and efficiently.
Your Distributor will be pleased to make the necessary
arrangements with you.
1. Power on Indicator
Shows that power is on to the cooker.
This does not indicate that the cooker is charging.
OPERATING YOUR AGA
2. Charge Available Indicator
In normal operation the L.E.D. will glow red when
Cheap Rate tariff is available. (The cooker is not
necessarily charging over the whole of this period).
The following points are intended to help you during the
period of change-over from your previous cooker to the
AGA way of life.
You will also find that the AGA Book provides a very
useful introduction to the cooker.
3. Oven Vent Fan Switch and Indicator
This manually operated switch illuminates red when its
depressed. It activates the oven vent extraction fan
(where fitted) which removes most of the oven cooking
smells and transfers them outside. When cooking is
finished, depress the switch again, the vent fan will
continue to run for 5 min before stopping.
Overnight cooking in the bottom Simmering Oven may
or may not require oven venting. Such cooking with
the fan ON, will provide a slightly reduced Simmering
Oven temperature, than with the fan OFF.
After your AGA has been installed
With the power switched ON, the cooker will gradually
heat up, and during this process some smells and fumes
will be driven off from the internal cooker insulation,
which will continue for some hours until finally dissipated.
To minimise this initial inconvenience, the kitchen area
should be continuously window-vented throughout this
period and you are advised to avoid entering this area if
possible, until finally clear of smells.
4. Oven Temperature Control
The setting of the control knob at No. 4 ensures that
the cooker runs at the correct temperature, with the
heat indicator on or about the black line in the silver
section of the heat indicator.
Set at No. 4 the control will operate automatically to
maintain the cooker at its correct temperature and
need not be altered.
When cooking, a fall in Roasting Oven temperature
will automatically switch ON a fan which circulates a
stream of air through the core extracting heat and
transferring it to the hotplates and ovens until the
correct oven temperature is re-established.
There will also be a little protective oil burning off the
hotplates. If you can wipe the inside of the hotplate lids
whilst the AGA is heating up it will avoid a film of this oil
being deposited on the inside of the lids.
Also, condensation may occur on the top-plate and frontplate whilst the AGA is heating up. This should be wiped
away as soon as possible.
Beginning to Cook on your AGA
4
l
The first "Golden Rule" of the AGA is to cook as much
as possible in the ovens - without changing your
menus. This not only conserves heat but also reduces
cooking smells and condensation into the kitchen.
The Roasting Oven can also be used for grilling (at the
top) and shallow frying (on the bottom).
l
Do keep the insulated lids down when the hotplates
are not in use so that the heat stored in the cooker is
conserved.
l
For the optimum cooking performance, use the Aga
cast-iron cookware. They all have thick ground bases
which give the best contact with the hotplates.
The Simmering Oven is especially useful for steaming
vegetables and simmering sauces.
l
The AGA pans can be stacked in the Simmering
Oven.
l
Store the Plain Shelf out of the AGA. Use it, cold, in
the Roasting Oven on a 2 oven AGA to deflect the
heat from the top of the oven thus creating a more
moderate oven temperature. It can also be used as a
baking sheet.
l
The AGA Cake Baker can be used in the 2 oven AGA
for cakes needing over 45 minutes cooking.
l
Ask your Distributor for an invitation to an AGA
demonstration.

A guide to AGA cooking is given overleaf.
Ovens and Hotplates
The cast-iron ovens help to keep themselves clean; they
merely need to be brushed out occasionally with a longhandled stiff brush. The Simmering and Plate Warming
Ovens on the 4 oven AGA may be cleaned with a damp,
soapy cloth.
The wire brush is provided for cleaning the hot plates and
any burnt-on spills in the cast iron ovens.
Roasting Tins
The roasting tins should be cleaned in hot, soapy water,
soak if necessary, a nylon scouring pad can be used.
DO NOT place in the dishwasher or use other caustic
cleaners.
DO NOT USE ANY OVEN CLEANERS.
NOTE: IF THERE IS CAUSE TO
ISOLATE THE
COOKER, SWITCH OFF AT THE MAIN ISOLATORS.
CLEANING AND CARING FOR YOUR
AGA
REMEMBER: BE CAREFUL OF THE HOT APPLIANCE.
IMPORTANT
AGA recommend Vitreous Enamel Association
approved cleaners for cleaning the vitreous enamelled
surfaces of this product.
DO NOT USE ABRASIVE PADS OR OVEN CLEANER.
DO NOT USE A STEAM CLEANER TO CLEAN THIS
COOKER.
But it is unsuitable for use on: chrome and stainless
steel components, including the insulating covers,
handrails and their brackets.
AGA Enamel Cleaner and AGA Chrome and Stainless
Steel Cleaner are recommended.
Top-plate and Front-plate
The easiest way to clean the AGA top-plate and frontplate is to mop up spills as they happen. Baked-on food
is more difficult to clean but can usually be removed with
proprietary vitreous enamel cleaners or mild cream
cleaners using a cloth or, if necessary, a nylon scouring
pad. If milk or fruit juice, or anything containing acid, is
spilt on the AGA, wipe it up immediately.
Also clean off any condensation streaks on the frontplate around the oven doors or the vitreous enamel
maybe permanently discoloured.
The insulating covers should be cleaned regularly
with a NON-ABRASIVE mild detergent, applied with a
soft (coarse free) cloth and lightly polished up
afterwards with a soft (coarse free) duster or tissue,
to bring it back to its original lustre.
All that is usually needed to keep the vitreous enamelled
surfaces of your AGA bright and clean is a daily rub over
with a damp, soapy cloth followed immediately with a
clean, dry cloth to avoid streaks. Remember the top-plate
and the chrome lids will scratch if pans or utensils are
dragged across them.
Insulating Lids and Oven Doors
The linings of the insulating lids and oven doors may be
cleaned with a cream cleanser or a soap impregnated
pad.
Open the lids and lift off the oven doors to allow them to
cool a little before cleaning. Do not, however, immerse
the doors in water as they are packed with insulating
material which will be damaged by excessive moisture.
Refer also to the Cleaning Section in the AGA Book.
