INSTALLATION
The hob must be installed according to the instructions supplied.
The hob must be installed by qualified personnel to the relevant British Standards.
Please, ensure that, once the hob is installed, it is easily accessible for the engineer in the
event of a breakdown.
WHEN THE HOB IS FIRST INSTALLED
Once the hob has been installed, it is important to remove any protective materials, which
were put on in the factory.

Operation
Electric Hotplates
To switch on a hotplate, turn the relevant control knob anticlockwise to the required heat
setting.
The control knob is numbered 1 - 3
0 - OFF
1 - Minimum
3 - Maximum.
The hob has two rapid hotplates. The rapid hotplates are indicated by a red dot, and will
heat up more quickly than a normal plate. As the red dots are painted on the plate, they may
deteriorate during use and even disappear completely after a period of time. This will not
affect the performance of the hob.
It is important to note that the plate may smoke and produce a slightly unpleasant odour when
used for the first time. This is quite normal and will disappear after a short while.
Operating Pilot Lamp
This lamp comes on each time a cooking zone is switched on.

Hints and Tips
Saucepans for use on solid plates should have several
characteristics:
z
z
z
They should be fairly heavy duty
They should fit the heat area exactly, or
be slightly larger for efficient use, NEVER
smaller.
They should have a flat base to ensure
good contact with the plate.
This is particularly important when using
pans for high temperature frying or
pressure cooking.
As soon as liquid starts boiling, turn down the
plate control knob so that it will barely keep the
liquid simmering.
You can switch off the plate a short while before
you finish cooking, and the final stage will be
completed on the accumulated heat. Similarly,
stews etc. cooked in well covered saucepans
cook at lower temperature which is more
economical.
Ensure pans are large enough to avoid liquids
being split onto the plates.
Never leave the plates on without a pan on
them or with an empty pan on them.
Take care never to lean or reach over a hot electric plate. Always point pan handles inward
or over the work surface next to the hob to avoid accidentally knocking over a pan as you
pass by.
Take care when frying food in hot oil or fat, as the overheated splashes could easily ignite.
If the control knobs become difficult to turn, please contact your local Service Force Centre.
9
Maintenance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance or cleaning can be carried out, you must DISCONNECT the hob
from the electricity supply.
The hob is best cleaned whilst it is still warm, as spillage can be removed more easily than
if it is left to cool.
The Hob Top
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, the following products are recommended:
- For stainless steel hobs use a proprietary stainless steel cleaner.
- For other hob use Hob Brite or Bar Keepers Friend.
The Hotplates
Spills onto the actual plate should be removed using warm water and a soft brush, nylon or
plastic scourer. To keep the plates looking as new, hotplate conditioner can be purchased
from most hardware stores, e.g. "4 Hob" by HomeCare Products (follow the manufacturer's
instruction for use).
Alternatively, wipe the plates with a drop of olive oil on a kitchen towel to avoid rust. It is
important to note that the plate will smoke a little and produce a slightly unpleasant odour
when next used.
Failure to clean and condition hotplates may lead to rust and corrosion forming on the
surface.
Stainless steel parts: the stainless steel spill rings may become straw coloured with use.
Use a proprietary stainless steel cleaner to remove this straw discolouration. This also
applies to the area around the hotplates on stainless steel hobs.

AEG Service Force Centre.

Proper arrangements must be taken in
designing the furniture unit, in order to avoid
any contact with the bottom of the hob which
can be heated when it is operated. The
recommended solution is shown in diagram
3.
Fitting the hob to the worktop
Before fitting the hob into the cut out, a sealing gasket
supplied with the hob must be fitted to the edge of the cut
out. It is essential that no gaps are left in this seal in order
to prevent spillage near the hob seeping into the cabinet
below.
1) Place the sealing gasket all around the edge
of the cut out.
2) Place the hob into the cut out and secure it by
means of the relevant fixing clamps and
screws, as shown in the diagram.
3) Remove the excess seal
The edge of the hob forms a double seal which prevents the ingress of liquids.

Electrical connections
Any electrical work required to install this hob should be carried out by a qualified electrician
or competent person, in accordance with the current regulations.
THIS HOB MUST BE EARTHED.
The manufacturer declines any liability should these safety measures not be observed.
This hob is designed to be connected to a 230-240V 50Hz AC electrical supply.
Before switching on, make sure the electricity supply voltage is the same as that indicated on the hob
rating plate. The rating plate is located on the bottom of the hob. A copy is attached on the back cover
of this book.
The hob is supplied without supply cord. A 3 core flexible supply cord must be fitted, in accordance
with the specification given in the relevant tables.
1) Remove the mains terminal cover plate from the underside of the hob, to expose the mains
terminal block.
2) Loosen the two cable clamp screws and lift the top section of the clamp enough to allow the cable
to be passed through.
3) Connect the red (live) wire to the terminal which is
marked with the number 1.
4) Connect the black (neutral) wire to the terminal which
is marked with the number 4.
5) After fitting a green or yellow/green sleeve over the
bare copper wire (earth wire), connect the exposed
end to the terminal which is marked with the earth
symbol
or with the number 5.
NOTE: The earth wire should be about 2 cm. longer
than the live and neutral wires.
6) Secure the cable by means of the clamp screws and
FO 0488
refit the terminal block cover.
17
Permanent Connection
In the case of a permanent connection, it is necessary that you install a double pole switch
between the hob and the electricity supply (mains), with a minimum gap of 3 mm. between
the switch contacts and of a type suitable for the required load in compliance with the current
electric regulations.
The switch must not break the yellow and green earth cable at any point.
Ensure that the hob supply cord does not come into contact with surfaces with temperatures
higher than 50 deg. C.
