The installer is responsible for the correct electrical connection of the appliances and the observance of the relative safety recommendations. • • • • Connecting the oven to the power supply • • • Make sure that the voltage shown on the rating plate is the same as the power supply voltage in your home. The service number is located on the front edge of the oven cavity (visible when the oven door is open). Use a type H05RR-F power cord (minum length: 800 mm). Warning: All the oven’s components operate at 230-240 V. Conductors X number Electrical connection 2 + ~ H05 RR-F 3X4 mm² 3 + ~ H05 RR-F 4X2,5 mm² Interconnecting cooktop and oven • • • Before connecting the oven to the power supply, check that the cooktop is among the ones listed in the cooktop/oven pairing product sheet. Connect the 3 pole and 4 pole connectors to the respective connectors on the oven. The 3 pole connectors (H) is located at the rear right hand side of the control panel, the 4 pole connector (J) is located at the top of the oven in the left hand corner (see figure). Connect the yellow/green striped earth wire ( ) (K) from the cooktop to the screw located near the 3 pole connector. WARNING: DO NOT CONNECT TO THE POWER SUPPLY BEFORE YOU HAVE FINISHED CONNECTING THE OVEN AND THE COOKTOP. • 18 Mount the oven in the kitchen unit. Make sure the power cord is not entrapped. The appliance must be connected to the electricity supply by means of an all-pole disconnect switch with minimum contact gap of 3 mm. The appliances must be earthed by law. Do not use multiple plug adapters or extension leads. After the oven has been installed, the electrical components must be concealed. BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCES • To make the most of your new appliances read the users instructions carefully and keep them on hand for consultation in the future. • Remove the cardboard protections and the protective plastic film. • Remove the accessories from the oven and heat it at 200° C for about an hour to eliminate the smell of protective grease and insulating materials. Keep the window open during this procedure. N.B.: The cooling fan runs continuously at different speeds according to the temperature value of the components when the cooktop or the oven are in use. Full speed: when the components are hot. Reduced speed (on/off mode): when the components are not hot. The on/off mode must be considered the normal mode when the fan is at reduced speed. The fan may continue to run for the time necessary to ensure sufficient cooling of the components and adjacent kitchen units after the appliances have been switched off. PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT 1. Packing • The packaging material is 100% recyclable and it is marked with the recycle symbol ( ). . 2. Appliances • The appliances are built from recyclable materials. If you decide to scrap the appliances please observe local waste disposal regulations. When you scrap them, cut off the power cords so that the appliances cannot be connected to the mains. PRECAUTIONS AND GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS • Before any maintenance on the appliances disconnect them from the power supply. • Keep children away from the appliances when they are in use. • The oven must be repaired or adjusted only by a qualified technician. • Make sure that the electrical wires of other electrical appliances near the oven do not come into contact with hot parts and do not become entrapped in the oven door. • During the cooking process, water evaporates from food. All ovens require this steam and other fumes to be vented from the oven cavity. For reasons of safety and aesthetics, we have determined that an opening at the bottom of the door is the optimum solution. Consequently, vapour may be seen to be coming from this area on occasions (see picture). This is a normal occurrence and the bottom trim can be cleaned after removal of the door as described on page 23. • Heavy weights must not be placed on the open door as this may result in damage to the cavity and hinges. Max weight: 7 kg (15 lbs). Fum es Ex h aus t Oven • • • • Never stand or sit on the oven open door. Never hang any weight at the handle of the oven door when open. Use oven gloves to remove baking trays and accessories when the oven is hot. Do not cover the bottom of the oven with aluminium foil. Do not place inflammable material in the oven - risk of fire if the oven is inadvertently switched on. 19 PRECAUTIONS AND GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS Conventional electric / glass-ceramic cooktop Specific recommendations for glassceramic cooktops • • • • • • Do not switch on the hotplates / cooking areas when there is no pan in position. The cooktop features hotplates/cooking areas of different size. Use pans whose base diameter is the same as or slightly larger than the diameter of the hotplate/cooking zone. Use flat-bottomed pans. The use of pans with concave or convex bottoms is not recommended. Do not use the cooktop as a work or support surface. Do not leave the appliance unattended when frying food - risk of fire. • • • • • When using the Fast Boiling function, use stainless steel pans with double bottom only. If the glass-ceramic surface should break or crack due to violent impact (falling objects, etc.) do not use it and call After-Sales Service immediately. Do not place food wrapped in aluminium foil, plastic containers or cloths on the hot cooking zones. Do not drag pans across the glass-ceramic surface - risk of scratches. If the cooktop is fitted with halogen lamps, do not stare at them when they are switched on. Avoid spilling sugar and similar substances on the cooktop. Should this happen, clean the cooktop carefully following the care and maintenance instructions in this handbook. ENERGY SAVING TIPS • • • • • Use pots and pans whose bottom diameter is equal to that of the cooking zone or slightly larger. Only use flat-bottomed pots and pans. If possible, keep the pots covered when cooking. Cook vegetables, potatoes, etc. with little water in order to cut down on cooking time. A pressure cooker allows you to save even more energy and time. NO! OK! 20 OVEN ACCESSORIES • Accessories supplied depend on the model (refer to the Product Description Sheet supplied separately). 1 Drip tray 1 The drip tray is designed to collect fat and food particles when it is positioned under the grid; it can also be used as a griddle to cook meat, chicken and fish, with or without vegetables.
