This cooktop is suitable for contact with foodstuffs and complies with EEC (CE) Regulation n. 1935/2004.
The appliances are designed solely for use as cooking appliances. Any other use of the appliances (e.g. for room
heating) is considered as improper use and potentially dangerous.
The appliances are designed, built and sold in compliance with:
safety objectives of the “Low Voltage” Directive 2006/95/EC (which replaces 73/23/EEC and subsequent
the protection requirements of Directive “EMC” 2004/108/EC;

Cooktop not working
When pressing the control buttons, did you follow the instructions in the section “Using the hob” in the enclosed
“Product Description Sheet”?
Is there perhaps a power failure?
Did you dry the hob carefully after cleaning it?
If a cooking zone has been selected and an F or an ER appear on the display followed by a number, contact the After
Sales Service and inform them.
With the exception of the message F03 or ER03 that identifies the incorrect cleaning of the controls area.
To solve the problem follow the instruction in the “Cleaning and maintenance” paragraph.
If the hob does not work following intensive use, the hob internal temperature is too high.
Wait a few minutes until the hob cools down.
Before calling the After-Sales Service:
See if you can solve the problem yourself with the help of the suggestions given in the “Troubleshooting guide“.
Switch the appliance off and back on again it to see if the fault persists.
If after the above checks the fault still occurs, get in touch with the nearest After-sales Service.
Always specify:
a brief description of the fault;
the type and exact model of the oven;
the service number (number after the word Service on the rating plate), located on the right hand edge of the oven
cavity (visible when the oven door is open). The service number is also indicated on the guarantee booklet;
your full address;
your telephone number.
If any repairs are required, please contact an authorised After-sales Service (to guarantee that original spare parts will be
used and repairs carried out correctly).
In the unlikely event that an operation or repair is carried out by an unauthorised technician, always request a certification

The cooktop must be set into a worktop between 20 mm and 50 mm deep
There must be nothing between the cooktop and the oven (cross rails, brackets, etc.).
The distance between the lower face of the glass ceramic hob and the cupboard or separating panel must be at least
20 mm.
If the cooktop is to be installed next to a column unit, leave a distance of at least 100 mm from the edge of the

Rear wall
Important: in order to prevent the electronic circuits from overheating, and therefore from being damaged, we
recommend the following:
Do not install the cooktop near a dishwasher or washing machine, so that the electronic circuits do not come into
contact with steam or moisture, which could damage them.
If an oven (from our range of ovens) is installed beneath the cooktop, make sure that it is equipped with a cooling
If the temperature of the electronic circuits exceeds the maximum permitted temperature, the cooktop will switch
off automatically; in this case, wait for a few minutes until the internal temperature of the electronic circuits reaches
a tolerable level, at which point it will be possible to switch the hob on again.
Switch the hob off after use.
Electrical connection must be made before connecting the appliance to the electricity supply. The appliance must be
installed by a qualified electrician who is fully aware of current safety and installation regulations. Specifically, installation
must be carried out in compliance with the regulations of the local electricity supply company. Make sure that the voltage
shown on the rating plate is the same as the power supply voltage in your home. Regulations require that the appliance be
earthed: use conductors (including the earth conductor) of the appropriate size only. The manufacturer declines all liability
for injury to persons or animals and for damage to property resulting from failure to observe the above regulations. For the
electrical connection use a H05RR-F type cable as indicated in the table below:
Power supply voltage.
Amount x size
230V ~ +
3 X 4 mm2
230-240V ~ +
3 X 4 mm2 (Australia only)
230V 3~ +
4 X 1.5 mm2
400V 3N ~ +
5 X 1.5 mm2
400V 2N ~ +
4 X 1.5 mm2
The appliance must be connected to the electricity supply by means of an all-pole disconnect switch with minimum
contact gap of 3 mm.
Attention: the power supply cable must be long enough to allow the cooktop to be removed from the worktop and must
be positioned so as to avoid damage or overheating caused by contact with the base.
Connecting to the terminal board
N.B.: the yellow/green earth wire must be connected to the terminal with the symbol
and must be longer than the
other wires.
Remove approx. 70 mm of the cable sheath from the power supply cable (B).
Strip approx. 10 mm of sheath from the wires. Then insert the power supply cable into the cable clamp and connect
the wires to the terminal block as indicated in the connection diagram placed close to the terminal block itself.
Secure the power supply cable (B) by means of the cable clamp.
Close the terminal board with the cover (A) securing it with the screw provided.
After the electrical connection, fit the hob from the top and hook it to the support springs, according to the
Radiant cooking zone Ø 145
Radiant cooking zone Ø 180
Radiant cooking zone Ø 145
Radiant cooking zone Ø 210
Be careful:
To avoid permanently damaging the glass-ceramic top, do not use:
pots with bottoms that are not perfectly flat,
metal pots with enamelled bottom.
Any aesthetic defects (scratches, surface marks, etc.) must be reported immediately upon installation.

setting triggers automatic switch-off of the cooking zone (for example, after around 1 hour at maximum heat setting, the
cooking zone switches off).
