The knob is magnetic and is placed on the twist pad. The cooking zone is activated by sliding the twist knob in the direction of the corresponding cooking zone symbol. You can set the heat setting by turning the knob.

You can remove the knob. This makes cleaning easier.

If you remove the knob when the cooktop is in operation, all the cooking zones switch off after

3 seconds.

!

CAUTION! If you place a metal object on the twist pad within 3 seconds, the cooktop may continue to heat up. For this reason, always switch off the cooktop using the main switch.

Touch keys

When you touch a symbol, the respective function is activated. Every input is confirmed by an audible signal.

The settings remain unchanged if several symbols are touched briefly. You can therefore easily mop up spills on the control panel.

Note

Always keep the touch keys clean and dry. Moisture and dirt may impair function.

Cooking zone combination

Flexible cooking zones can be combined in different ways to create larger or smaller cooking surfaces as required.

Storing the twist knob

There is a strong magnet in the twist knob. Do not, therefore, place it near magnetic data carriers, e.g.

video cassettes, disks, credit cards and cards with magnetic strips. These could be destroyed.

Malfunctions to televisions and monitors may occur.

The previously stored settings are taken over. If you touch any other symbol instead, the previous settings are lost.

Residual heat display

The residual heat display appears on the display of the relevant cooking zone after switching off. The moving zero in the display indicates that, after switching off, a cooking zone has still not cooled down to such an extent that it can be safely touched.

!

CAUTION, RISK OF BURNS! Only touch cooking zones after the residual heat display has gone off.

Safety deactivation

If a cooking zone is in constant use for a long time without the setting being changed, it will automatically switch off. The time after which the holiday safeguard is activated depends on the heat setting (1 to 10 hours).

The cooking zone is switched off, the residual heat display appears on the display until the cooking zone has cooled down.

Now you can switch the cooking zone on again.

Tips on saving energy

Use good quality saucepans and pots with thick, even bases.

Select the correct saucepan size for each cooking zone. The diameter of the bases of the saucepans and pots should match the size of the cooking zone.

Note: Ovenware manufacturers often give the diameter of the top of the saucepan. It is usually larger than the diameter of the base of the saucepan.

Use a small saucepan for small quantities. A larger, less full saucepan requires more energy.

Saucepans and pots should always be covered with a suitable lid to shorten cooking times. Cooking without a lid requires much more energy.

Cook with small quantities of water. This saves energy and helps vegetables to retain vitamins and minerals.

Switch down to a lower heat setting in good time.

For longer cooking times you can switch off the cooking zone before the end of the cooking time and then use the residual heat.

Cleaning and care

!

CAUTION! To avoid risk of injury, follow these precautions when cleaning and caring for the appliance:

Do not clean the cooktop using high pressure cleaners or steam jets.

Before cleaning, wait until the residual heat display has gone out.

• The blade of the included glass scraper is very sharp. Replace damaged blades immediately.

• Do not use any kind of cleaner on the glass while the surface is hot, use only the blade scraper. The resulting fumes can be hazardous to your health. Heating the cleaner can chemically attack and damage the surface.

Iridiscent discoloration can be caused by the use of unsuitable cleaning agents or abrasion from the bases of some pots. These do not interfere with the operation of the glass ceramic cooktop. Remove the discoloration with glass ceramic cleaner.

Always keep the touch keys clean and dry. Food residues and spills can impair the function of the control panels.

Cleaning the glass ceramic

Clean the cooktop after every use. This prevents food from being burnt into the cooktop surface.

Use the blade scraper to remove food residues and grease splashes. Only use the blade on the glass ceramic cooktop. Do not use the blade casing as it may scratch the glass ceramic.

Use a glass ceramic cleaner and kitchen towel or a soft, moist cloth to clean the surface when it has cooled down.

Wipe the surface with a moist cloth and rub dry with a soft cloth.

Do not apply the cleaner if the cooktop is hot. It can become stained. Carefully remove any remaining cleaner before heating up the cooktop.

Water marks can also be removed using lemon juice or vinegar.

The glass ceramic cleaner will coat the glass ceramic surface with a gleaming, dirt repellent film.

This will help to preserve the attractive appearance of your cooktop over a long period of time and make it easier to clean as well.

Do not use scouring, abrasive or chemically aggressive cleaners (e.g. oven cleaner).

Do not use cleaners which contain sand or chlorine.

Do not use undiluted dishwashing or household detergent. Do not use abrasive sponges or brushes.

Food with a high sugar content (e.g. boiled-over milk, jam) can damage the surface of your cooktop.

Immediately remove such food using the glass scraper.

Cleaning the stainless steel frame

Use a soft cloth and light soapy liquid or a commercially available stainless steel cleaner to clean the cooktop frame. Only wipe in the direction of the brushed metal.

Do not use any aggressive or abrasive cleaners.

Do not use the blade scraper, as it may scratch the cooktop frame.

Do not use lemon or vinegar to clean the cooktop frame. This could result in matt patches.

Cleaning the twist knob

Wipe the magnetic knob using lukewarm soapy water only. Do not use any aggressive or abrasive cleaners. The twist knob could be damaged if cleaned in a dishwasher or immersed in soapy water.

Useful hints Maintenance

The temperature of the cooking zones is controlled by switching the heat on and off, this means that it is not always possible to see the red, glowing heat.

If you select a low heat setting, the heat will switch off more often than at higher heat settings. Even at the highest setting the heat switches on and off.

There may be a gentle buzzing as the cooking zones heat up.

The heat may show differently on the individual cooking zones. Depending on the angle of vision, the heat may appear to spread beyond the marked boundary of the cooking zone. These are technical features and do not influence quality or function.

If the appliance does not function correctly, check the household fuses first. If the power supply is functioning correctly, please contact your dealer or the Gaggenau after-sales service.

Please quote the E number (product number) and the FD number (production number) of your appliance when contacting the after-sales service.

The quality control slip bearing these numbers is included with this manual. This quality control slip should be kept, for guarantee reasons, together with your operating and assembly instructions.

Repairs may only be carried out by authorised technicians, in order to guarantee the safety of the appliance.

!

WARNING! Incorrect repairs may result in serious injury to the user.

All poles of the appliance must be disconnected from the mains when being repaired.

Non compliance with these recommendations results in the warranty coverage becoming invalid.

Trouble shooting

Not every malfunction can be ascribed to a defect of your cooker. If your appliance should not function properly, search for the fault in the list below. If you are not successful in remedying the fault with the aid of the list below, then contact your Gaggenau after-sales service.

Er display and numbers

If an Er and numbers appear on the display, there is a fault with the electronics. Switch the cooktop off and, after a few minutes, on again using the household fuse or the circuit breaker in the fuse box

(reset). Disconnect the cooktop from the electricity and call the after-sales service if the display appears again.

The cooktop does not work

Check that the household fuses for the appliance are OK. Check if there has been a power cut.

Alternating K and 7 display

A cooking zone which is set on level 8 or 9 is too hot. This cooking zone is reduced to level 7. When

K disappears you can select a higher setting again.

The cooktop cannot be switched on. The main switch flashes repeatedly when touched.

An object lies on one of the sensor keys (e.g. a dish cloth). Remove the object and switch on the cooktop as usual.

The cooktop functions but does not heat up. A spot lights constantly on the timer display.

The cooktop is on show room mode after installation. Disconnect the cooktop from the power supply for at least 10 seconds. Reconnect the cooktop and within 3 minutes carry out the following procedure:

1 Switch on cooktop at main switch l. Timer must be off.

2 Touch the symbol d and keep the finger pressed down. Within 3 seconds touch and release the main switch l. The cooktop switches off.

3 Remove your finger from the symbol d. A signal will sound. The spot on the timer display goes off.

K display

The cooktop is too hot and has switched itself off.

Remove the pots from the cooking zones.

K disappears from the display when the cooking zones have cooled sufficiently.

Wait a few minutes until the cooking zones have cooled down slightly. If K appears again after the cooking zones are switched back on, the cooktop is still too hot. Switch off the cooking zones and allow to cool further.

F1 display

A cooking zone has faulty electronics.

Switch the cooktop off and, after a few minutes, on again using the household fuse or the circuit breaker in the fuse box (reset). Disconnect the cooktop from the electricity and call the after-sales service if the display appears again.

The cooktop has switched itself off

The main switch was touched accidentally. Switch the cooktop back on.

A cooking zone has been in constant operation for too long. The safety deactivation was activated.

Switch off the cooking zone. It can be switched on again immediately.
