To make the most of your new oven, read the user’s instructions carefully and keep them on hand for consultation in the future.




IMPORTANT: Disconnect the oven from the mains before carrying out any installation work or servicing.

Installation must be carried out by a qualified technician in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and in compliance with local regulations.

Unpack the oven and make sure that the oven has not been damaged during transport and that the oven door closes properly. If you are not sure contact the dealer or the nearest service centre.

After removing the oven from its packaging, leave it on the polystyrene base to prevent it from being damaged.

When installing the oven it is advisable to wear protective gloves.

The oven is provided with two side handles (B) to facilitate installation (fig. 7).

Preparing the housing unit

Kitchen units in contact with the oven must be heat resistant (80°C min).

Cut the kitchen unit and worktop to fit before installing the oven. Carefully remove any shavings or sawdust that could prevent the oven from running properly.

The dimensions of the housing units in which the oven can be installed are shown in figures 1, 2 and 3.

The dimensions of the oven are shown in figure 4.

To allow for proper ventilation, an opening should be left at the bottom of the housing unit. Pay attention to the dimensions. The bottom of the oven must not be accessible after installation.

During installation make sure that the sides of the oven do not touch the adjacent units.

2 3




For ovens installed under the worktop, leave a minimum clearance of 5 mm between the upper edge of the oven and the lower edge of the worktop (fig. 5). For correct operation of the appliance, this clearance must always be unobstructed.

If the kitchen unit is not securely fixed to the wall, it must be anchored with standard brackets (A)

(fig. 6).

Electrical connection

Regulations require that the appliance be earthed.

Connection to the mains must be carried out by a qualified electrician in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and in compliance with local regulations.

The installer is responsible for connecting appliances correctly to the mains and for observing the safety regulations.

The oven power cable must be long enough to connect the built-in oven to the mains.

Observance of safety directives requires that an accessible mains disconnection device or a multi-pole switch with a minimum contact gap of 3mm be used for the installation.

Do not use multiple plug adapters or extension leads.

After the oven has been installed, the electrical components must be inaccessible.




Connecting the oven to the power supply

Make sure that the voltage indicated on the rating plate is the same as the mains voltage.

The rating plate is on the front edge of the oven (visible when the door is open).

If the power cable is not present proceed as follows:

1. Remove the two fastening screws of the terminal box cover located on the bottom part of the oven’s rear covering.

2. Remove the cover to gain access to the terminal box and insert the power cable (see table) through the opening located on the bottom of the oven.

3. Connect the cable to the terminal box, tighten the screws as far as they will go and secure it to the cable fastener.

4. Put the cover back on by inserting the two blades in the slots and fasten it with the two screws.

Securing the oven

Lift up the oven getting hold of it by the handles (B) unit, being careful not to trap the power supply cable (fig. 8).

Energy saving

Only pre-heat the oven if specified in the cooking table of the Product Description Sheet or in your recipe.

Use dark, black enamelled baking moulds as they absorb heat very well.



Not intended for use by young children and infirm persons without supervision.

Young children should be supervised to ensure they not play with the appliance.

The appliance must not be used be people

(including children) with limited physical, sensory or mental abilities, or without experience or expertise, unless they have received instructions for using it from those responsible for their safety.

The accessible parts of the oven may get very hot during use. Keep children away.

Never use abrasive materials or substances to clean the GLASS, to prevent damaging it.

The unit gets very hot during use. Do not touch the heating elements in the oven.

This oven is designed solely for use as a home appliance for cooking food. No other type of use is allowed. The Manufacturer declines all responsibility for inappropriate use or incorrect setting of the controls.

Any repairs or adjustments must be carried out exclusively by a qualified technician.

Never expose the oven to atmospheric agents.

Do not put heavy objects on the door because they could damage the oven cavity and hinges.

Do not cling to the door.

Never hang anything heavy on the oven door handle.

Do not cover the bottom of the oven with aluminium foil or other objects.

The oven door must close properly. The door seals must be kept clean.

Do not pour water directly into the inside of a hot oven. The enamel coating could be damaged.

Fruit juice drippings from the baking tray may leave permanent stains. We recommend the oven be cleaned before reusing it.

Never drag pots and pans across the bottom of the oven to prevent the coating from being scratched.


Residual condensation after cooking could damage the oven and surrounding kitchen units in time.

We recommend that you:

- set the lowest temperature;

- cover food;

- remove food from the oven;

- dry the wet parts when the oven is cool.

The front panel and the handle of the oven door warm up when the appliance is switched on for a long time at high temperatures.

Never touch the oven with any wet part of the body and do not operate it with bare feet.

Do not pull the appliance or the power supply cable to disconnect them from the electrical supply.

Do not allow children to touch:

- the oven and its controls, especially when in operation and immediately afterwards to avoid injury;

- packaging (bags, polystyrene, metal parts, etc.);

- an oven to be scrapped.

Make sure that the electrical cables of other appliances used near the oven do not touch hot parts and are not trapped in the oven door.

Some oven models are equipped with an air cooling system to prevent the front of the oven and cabinet cavity from reaching excessively high temperatures.

Attention: Steam and smoke are vented through an opening located between the control panel and the oven door. Do not obstruct the vent opening.

Do not place inflammable material in the oven or nearby: a fire may break out if the oven is inadvertently switched on.

Use oven gloves to remove pans and accessories, when the oven is hot.

If alcoholic beverages are added when roasting or cooking cakes and sweets (e.g. rum, cognac, wine, etc.) remember that alcohol evaporates at high temperatures. It may happen that vapours released by the alcohol can catch fire when they are in contact with the electric heating element.

Do not heat or cook sealed jars or containers in the oven. The pressure that develops inside the packaging might cause it to explode, damaging the oven.

Do not use containers made of synthetic material for cooking (except for packages specifically designed for this purpose; see the manufacturer’s instructions). They could melt at high temperatures.

Always keep a watch on pans when cooking with oil and grease. Oil and fat can overheat and catch fire!

Never pull out fully loaded shelves. Use extreme caution.


Remove the accessories from the oven and heat it 200°C for about an hour to eliminate the smell of the protective grease and insulating materials.

Keep the window open during this operation.

Before use, remove:

- stickers on the front and oven door, except for the rating plate;

- cardboard protection and protective plastic film from the front panel controls and other parts of the oven;

- any sticky labels from the accessories

(for example, under the drip tray).
