How to use the hob
The ceramic surface of the hob allows fast transmission of heat vertically from the heating elements under the glass to
the pans on the hob top.

key.
Residual Heat Indicators
The hob is equipped with residual heat indicators to warn when any of the zones are still hot to the touch after cooking.
An H will show in the relevant zone display after cooking until the zone is at a safe temperature to touch.
Please note:
You should avoid touching the zones when the hob is in use, or when an H is showing on the zone display.
In the event of a power cut, the residual heat indicators will flash after the power supply is restored. However, when there is no
power supply to the hob the residual heat indicators will not work, so extra care must be taken.
Touch Control Safety
The hob will not operate if an object is left on the touch control for more than ten seconds. The hob will switch off, the zone
display will flash F and the hob will beep every 30 seconds until the object is removed.
If the object is left on the keylock key, the keylock will switch on automatically and will need to be switched off before the
hob can be used.
Auto-stop Protection
The hob is equipped with a sensor that will switch off the zone after a factory set period of time if not keys are touched once
the zone is switched on.

Efficient Use of your Hob
The hob is equipped with zones of different sizes, designed to accommodate most shapes and sizes of pan. For best
results, only use pans with flat bottoms and choose an appropriate zone depending on the size of the pan. The most
efficient use of the hob is shown below, where the pan and zone are correctly chosen.
Use pan lids where possible to minimize the energy usage of your appliance.
As the zone will remain hot for a period of time after it has been switched off, five to ten minutes before the planned
end of cooking time, turn the zone off. The residual heat in the hob will be sufficient to finish the cooking.

Maximum Pan Size (mm)
It is very important that the pans used on the hob are made of a suitable material and have the correct type of base.
The base should be flat and smooth, as any rough part on the pan base could scratch the ceramic hob top.
Choose pans which are between the sizes recommended in the table above, and with bases that are as non-reflective as
possible, e.g. dull and dark.
Only pans recommended for use on ceramic hobs should be used.
Pans with aluminium bases may leave silver streaks or spots on the hob. Glassware and pans with rough circulare
machined bases should not be used
8
Care and Maintenance
Always disconnect the appliance from the power supply before undertaking any cleaning or maintenance.
You should use a non-abrasive cleaner to clean the hob top. Any abrasive cleaner (including Cif) will scratch the surface and
could erase the control panel markings.
Do not use steel wool, abrasive sponges or sharp utensils such as knives to clean the hob as these could damage the hob.
The hob surface and the pans must be clean.
Carefully remove any food remains (especially those containing sugar), dirt etc. as soon as is possible after spillage - using a
ceramic hob scraper if necessary whilst the zone is still hot.
Once they have cooled and hardened they become increasingly difficult to remove.
Sugar, syrup and starch mixtures could permanently pit the hob surface if left to burn on and should be removed as quickly
as possible after spillage.
The stainless steel trims should be rinsed with water and dried with a soft, clean cloth, a chamois leather or an E-Cloth.
All cleaner residues should be removed with a damp cloth.

Mains Electricity Connection
Warning! this appliance must be earthed
We recommend that the appliance is connected by a qualified electrician, who is a member of the N.I.C.E.I.C. and who will
comply with the I.E.E. and local regulations.
This appliance is intended to be connected to fixed wiring and is not suitable for connection to a 13A plug or 13A supply.
This appliance is intended to be connected to fixed wiring by a double pole switch, having a contact separation of at least
3mm in all poles. The switch must be positioned no further than 2m from the appliance.
Please note:
• The mains cable must only be replaced by a qualified electrician or service engineer and must be of equivalent or better rating (i.e. 2.5mm2, HO5RR-F).
• This appliance is intended to be connected to the mains supply with a cable of cross section area 2.5 mm². A larger cable will not fit the terminal connections.
• The marking of the current rating of the fuse or circuit breaker protecting this appliance should be marked on the socket outlet.
• Assembly and electrical connection should be carried out by specialised personnel.
• When installing this product we recommend you seek the help of another individual.
• Ensure that the brass links are securely fitted. Failure to do so will prevent the hob from operating correctly.

Fitting the Hob
Unpacking the hob:• Take care not to lose or mishandle any parts.
Fitting position of the hob:
This appliance must be installed a minimum of 50mm from any back wall and a minimum of 190mm away from any adjacent vertical surfaces, e.g. a tall cupboard end panel. This may be reduced to 100mm if the adjacent surface is resistant to fire (tiles or steel, for example). These dimensions are shown in Fig.5.
If fitting a cooker hood above the hob:
If a cooker hood is to be installed above the hob, the height of the hood above the hob must be at least 600mm (650mm is
recommended) (Fig.6). If the instructions supplied with the hood dictate that the hood must be installed at a height greater
than 600mm, then that height is the minimum required.
Wall furniture requirements:
The minimum height of any cabinet immediately above the hob is 900mm. The minimum height of any adjacent units
(including light pelmets) is 400mm, unless they are manufactured from a material resistant to fire (steel, for example)
Notes:
• Do not position this appliance above a refrigeration unit. The heat generated may cause the refrigeration unit to fail.
• This appliance is designed to be installed into cabinet units capable of withstanding temperatures of 65°C or greater above ambient temperature.
• If there is no oven to be built in below the hob, an isolation shelf should be fitted to protect the user from high temperatures. If the hob is to be installed above a working drawer, then a partition should be fitted to protect the contents and user from the heat generated during use.
• Never place perishable foods in the cupboard below the appliance.

How to Install the Hob
How to install the hob:
Overall dimensions of the hob: Width: 770mm Depth: 510mm
Worktop cut-out dimensions: Width: 740mm Depth: 480mm
1. 2. 3. Make the required hole in the worktop. Before doing this, you must check the instructions supplied with any cooker hood to ensure that you will have the required clearance. The cut-out (Fig5) shows a 60mm gap from the wall to the cut-out edge. The distance from the hob, when fitted, to the back wall is 50mm. If a splashback/worktop upstand is to be fitted, take this into account when cutting the hole. The minimum distance that the hob should be positioned away from the rear wall or splashback is 50mm.
Position the hob seal, as shown in (Fig.7), ensuring that the ends meet without overlapping. Do not use silicone type sealant.
Secure the hob to the worktop using the fixing brackets and screws supplied, as shown in (Fig.8). Remove any excess sealant after tightening the brackets. Do not over-tighten the fixing brackets.
