Level 1 is mainly used in combination with bottom heat. The two upper levels are mainly used for the grill function. • Place the oven rack, baking tray or steam dish in the gap between the guide rail sliders. • A number of shelf levels can have fully-retractable telescopic guide rails, depending on the model. ▷▷ Pull the telescopic guide rails out of the oven cavity completely and place the oven rack / baking tray / steam dish on them. Then slide the oven rack / baking tray / steam dish on the telescopic guide rails, back into the oven cavity. ▷▷ Only close the oven door when the telescopic guide rails have been returned completely back into the oven cavity. Note: remove the guide rails / telescopic guide rails out of the oven if you are going to use the Pyrolysis function! Accessories Your appliance is accompanied by a range of accessories, depending on the model. Only use original accessories; they are specially suited to your appliance. Note: not all accessories are suitable/available for every appliance (it may also differ by country). When purchasing, always provide the EN 6 YOUR OVEN exact identification number of your appliance. Please see the sales brochures or check online for more details about optional accessories. Accessories that can be supplied with your appliance (depending on the model) Enamelled baking tray; to be used for pastries and cakes. • Do not use the enamelled baking tray for microwave functions! • Suitable for pyrolysis cleaning.

Lift the rack slightly at the front to slide it out of the oven. • Do not use the oven rack for microwave functions! Deep enamelled baking tray; to be used for roasting meat and baking moist pastry. It can also be used as a drip tray. Place the deep baking tray into the first level for use as a drip tray during grilling. • Do not use the deep enamelled baking tray for microwave functions! • Suitable for pyrolysis cleaning. Glass baking tray; for microwave and oven use. • NOT suitable for pyrolysis cleaning. Culisensor; can be used to measure the core temperature of the dish. When the desired temperature is reached, the cooking process will be stopped automatically. Pyrolysis guide rails; only use these guide rails to clean an enamelled baking tray during pyrolysis (replace the guide rails / telescopic guide rails with these special pyrolysis guide rails). • Please note: the high temperature during pyrolysis may cause the pyrolysis guide rails to discolour. Door • The door switches interrupt the operation of the oven when the door is opened during use. The oven continues operating when the door is closed. • This oven has a ‘Soft close door system’. When closing the oven door, this system dampens the movement, from a certain angle, and silently closes the oven door.

Place the dish in the oven. For most dishes you should first preheat the oven. 2. Turn the ‘oven function dial’ to the desired setting. The selected pictogram will appear on the display. 3. Press the ‘temperature button’. 4. Set the oven to the desired temperature using the ‘selection dial’ (between 30-275 °C / for ECO between 120-275 °C). 5. If desired, set a cooking time by pressing the ‘timer button’ and use the ‘selection dial’ to set the desired time. 6. Press the ‘start/stop’ button. The set oven function will be started and the oven will be heated to the selected temperature. The temperature symbol in the display will flash.

USE Notes • The temperature can be changed during cooking. • Cooking times are rough estimates and can vary depending on a number of conditions. • For certain dishes, the oven should be preheated. • If you use baking paper, this should be able to withstand high temperatures. • A lot of steam is released when cooking larger pieces of meat or dishes using dough, such as pies. This can cause condensation on the oven door. This is a normal occurrence and does not influence the functioning of the appliance. When the cooking process has ended, dry the door and the glass. • Prevent condensation from forming and do not allow hot food to cool in a closed oven. • Any glass dishes you use must be able to withstand temperatures of 275 °C. Oven settings Use the table to select the right oven function. Also consult the cooking instructions on the food packaging.

Make sure that the hinge latches are applied correctly to lock the hinges. Remove the oven door 1. Open the door to the fully open position. 2. Lift both hinge latches (A) and pull them towards the oven door (B). The hinges will be locked in the 45° position. 3. Gently close the door until it reaches a 45° angle. 4. Remove the door by lifting and tilting it towards the oven (C). The hinges need to come out of the slots in the oven. B A C Install the oven door 1. Hold the door at an angle of approximately 45° in front of the oven. 2. Insert the hinges into the slots and make sure they are both positioned correctly. 3. Open the door to the fully open position. 4. Lift both hinge latches and move them towards the oven. 5. Gently close the oven door and make sure that it closes correctly. If the door does not open or close correctly, then make sure that the hinges are positioned correctly in their slots. EN 21 CLEANING Removing the oven window The glass in the oven door can be cleaned from the inside, but you do need to remove the glass from the door to do this. First remove the oven door (see chapter ‘Removing the oven door’). 1. Lift the brackets on the left and right side of the door upwards slightly (to marker 1 on the bracket) and pull this away from the glass slightly (to marker 2 on the bracket). 2. Grasp the glass at the bottom and gently lift this upwards to remove it from the support. 3. The inner third glass (depending on the model) can be removed by lifting this carefully and removing it. Also remove the rubber seals around the glass. To replace the glass pane, observe the reverse order. The markings (semicircle) on the door and the glass pane should overlap. The Cleaning function (pyrolysis) Instead of cleaning manually, you can clean the oven space or an enamelled baking tray using the ‘Pyrolysis’ oven feature. During pyrolysis the oven space is heated to a very high temperature. Contaminants that are present incinerate at this high temperature and only ash remains. With average use of the oven, we recommend running the pyrolysis function once per month. Caution! • First, remove all accessories and guide rails / telescopic guide rails from the oven (see ‘Removing and cleaning the guide rails’). EN 22 CLEANING • Then remove any remaining food from the oven space and wipe the space with a damp cloth. Chunks of food and fat may ignite during the pyrolysis process. Fire hazard! Note! The oven space and an enamelled baking tray cannot be cleaned at the same time using the pyrolysis function. If you want to clean an enamelled baking tray using pyrolysis, then do this first (the oven space can become dirty due to the cleaning of the baking tray). Insert one baking tray at a time. After that, the oven space can be cleaned. Caution! Do NOT clean the glass baking tray using the ‘Pyrolysis’ oven feature. Pyrolysis Starting the Pyrolysis function 1. Make sure the oven space is completely empty and no chunks of food and fat are present! 2. If you want to clean an enamelled baking tray first, place the special pyrolysis guide rails in position. Wipe the baking tray with a damp cloth and slide the baking tray into the oven on Level 2. ▷▷ Remove these special pyrolysis guide rails after the cleaning process. 3. Turn the ‘oven function dial’ to ‘Pyrolysis’. The cleaning intensity level and time are displayed. 4. To choose the desired cleaning intensity level, press the ‘temperature button’ and turn the ‘selection dial’ to select one of three cleaning levels (one, two or three bars lit). 5. After a certain period of time, oven door will be automatically locked for your safety. The key symbol will appear on the display. • Unpleasant smell may be emitted from the oven during the cleaning process. • When the oven has cooled down, wipe it with a damp cloth. Wipe the oven door and the adjacent surfaces in the gasket area. Do not rub the gasket. Please note: Do not attempt to open the oven door while the automatic cleaning programme is in progress. The programme may be terminated. Risk of burns! EN 23 CLEANING Replacing the oven lamp The lamp in this household appliance is only suitable for illumination of this appliance.
