the factory.
Press button C and turn knob G until 30 min. Switch
the oven control knob to fan ducted cooking and
then set the thermostat control knob to MAX and
leave it to run, empty, for 30 minutes to remove any
unpleasant new smells.
During this period, an unpleasant odour may be
emitted, it is therefore, advisable to open a window
for ventilation.
Rating Plate
The model number of your oven can be found on the
rating plate on the lower front frame of the oven upon
opening the door.
The oven must be protected by a suitably rated fuse
or circuit breaker. The rating of the oven is given on
the rating plate.
‘About condensation and steam
When food is heated it produces steam in the same
way as a boiling kettle. The c::2n is vented to allow
some of this steam to escape. However, always
stand back from the oven when opening the oven
door to allow any build up of steam or heat to
If the steam comes into contact with a cool surface
on the outside of the oven, e.g. a trim, it will
condense and produce water droplets. This is quite
normal and is not caused by a fault on the oven.
To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe away
condensation and also soilage from surfaces.
Baking trays, oven dishes, etc. should not be placed
directly against the grid covering the fan at the back
of the oven, or placed on the oven base.
Do not use baking trays larger than 30 cm x 35 cm
(12 in x 14 in) as they will restrict the circulation of
heat and may affect performance. Advice on the
effect of different materials and finishes of bakeware
is given in 'Hints and Tips' in the appropriate oven
The trivet
When roasting do use the trivet in the meat tin. Fat
and meat juices will drain into the meat tin below and
can be used to make gravy. The trivet also prevents
splashes of fat from soiling the oven interior.
N.B. The meat tin should not be placed on a heated
hotplate as this may cause the enamel to crack.
The cooling fan for the controls
The cooling fan comes on immediately when the grill
is switched on and after a short time when the oven
is in use, it may run on for a short while when the
oven has been switched off.
The cooling fan may cycle ON and OFF, at the end of
the cooking this is quite normal.
It may run on after the oven or grill is switched off to
keep the controls cool.
Always allow the cooling fan to cool the oven down
before switching off the wall prior to carrying out any
cleaning or maintenance work.
The cooling fan operation will depend on how long
the oven or grill has been used and at what
temperature. It may not switch in at all at lower
temperature settings nor run on where the grill or
oven has only been used for a short time.
Control panel indicator neon
This light indicates whether the oven or grill is
switched ON. In the case of the oven, the neon also
indicates when the set temperature has been
reached. It will cycle on, and off during use to show
that the tempera.ure is being maintained.
If the neon do not operate as the instructions indicate
the controls have been incorrectly set. Return all
controls to zero and reset following the instructions
for the required setting.
When the oven is set for automatic cooking the neon
should remain unlit during OFF periods.

Oven Control Knob (fan) (Fig. 5)
The oven operates in three different ways:
1. as a traditional electric oven;
2. asa microwave oven;
3. as a combinated cooking oven, that is to say,
using both microwaves and the electric heating
These three operating functions will be described
further on, while the instructions on the cooking
procedures and relevant hints are given in the
cookbook provided with the appliance.
However, to select the required operating mode you
simply turn the oven's control knob (Fig. 5).
The various knob setting are marked with the following
Only the microwave function (MW = Microwave).
Fan ducted cooking - this allows you to roast or
roast and bake simultaneously using any shelf,
without flavour transference.
(7) Grill - the oven door MUST be closed when
grilling. The grill cannot be used at the same
time as the oven.
Thermostat Control Knob (Fig. 6)
By turning the oven control knob clockwise, you
select the cooking temperature.
Temperature selection starts at 50°C and is marked
in 25°C increments up to maximum, where the
temperature at the centre of the oven will reach
approximately 250°C.
The thermostat controlling the temperature is totally
variable so it is possible to select temperatures
between those marked.
The MAX setting is particularly suitable for grilling.
Once the oven temperature has been selected, the
temperature light will come on and remain on until
the oven has reached the correct setting; after that, it
will go on and off with the thermostat, showing how
the temperature is being maintained.
Ventilated grilling offers an alternative method of
cooking food items normally associated with
conventional grilling. The grill element and the
oven fan operate together, circulating hot air
around the food. Select a temperature not
exceeding of 225°C.

This function uses the top and lower elements to give
single level cooking. This is particularly suitable for
disches which require extra base browning such as

The control cooling fan will operate after a short time
and runs on after the controls are swiched off until
the appliance has cooled.
The middle shelf position allows for the best heat
distribution. To increase base browning simply lower
the shelf position. To increase top browning, raise
the shelf position.
The material and finish of the baking traus and
dishes used will affect base browning. Enamelware,
dark, heavy or non-stick utensils increase base
browning, while oven glassware, shiny aluminium or
polished steel trays reflect the heat away and given
less base browning.
Always place dishes centrally on the shelf to ensure
even browning.
Stand dishes on suitably sized baking trays to
prevent spillage onto the base of the oven and make
cleaning easier.
Do not place dishes, tins or baking trays directly on
the oven base as it becomes very hot and damage
will occur.
For faster preheating use the fan oven function to
preheat the oven until the oven indicator neon goes
out, then swich the selector to the conventional oven
Single level cooking gives best results. If you require
more than one level cooking use the fan or zoned
oven functions.
The Fan Oven
The air inside the oven is heated by the element
around the fan situated behind the back panel. The
fan draws air from the oven, the element heats the
air which is circulated into the oven via the top, base
and sides of the back panel. The advantages of
cooking with this function are:
Faster Preheating
Because the fan oven quickly reaches temperature, it
is not usually necessary to preheat the oven
although you may find that you need to allow an
extra 5-7 minutes on cooking times. For recipes
which require higher temperatures, best results are
achieved if the oven is preheated first, e.g. bread,
pastries, scones, souffles, etc.
Lower Temperatures
Fan oven cooking generally requires lower
temperatures than conventional cooking.
Follow the temperatures recommended in the charts
or remember to reduce temperatures by about 20-
25°C for your own recipes which use conventional
Even Heating for Baking
The fan oven has uniform heating on all runner
positions. This means that batches of the same food
can be cooked in the oven at the same time.
However, the top shelf may brown slightly quicker
that the lower one.
This is quite usual. There is no mixing of flavours
between dishes (see Fig. 8).
The oven is supplied with two anti-tip shelves.
IMPORTANT: The anti-tip oven shelves must be
posit. ed as shown in Fig. 7.
FO 0285 Fig. 7
Runner positions are not critical, but make sure the
shelves are evenly spread.
When cooking more than one dish in the fan oven,
place dishes centrally on the shelves rather than
several dishes on one shelf.
When the oven is full, you may need to allow slightly
longer cooking time.
A shelf may be placed on the floor of the oven. Place
dishes on a shelf in this position rather than on the
oven base, to allow air circulation around the food.
When the oven is full of the same food, e.g. equal
trays of small cakes or equal size victoria sandwich
cakes, then they will be cooked in the same time and
removed from the oven together. When different
sizes of trays or types of food, e.g. biscuits and
cakes are cooked, they will not necessarily be ready
The fan oven can be used to heat foods through
without thawing first, e.g. fruit tarts, mince pies,
sausage rolls, and other small pastry items. Use a
temperature of 190-200°C and allow 20-40 minutes
(depending on the quantity of food in the oven).
The use of too high temperatures can cause uneven
browning. Check with the recommendations for oven
temperatures given in the cooking charts, but be
prepared to adjust the temperature by 10°C if
necessary. Remember to reduce temperatures by
about 20-25°C for your own conventional recipes.
FO 0061 Fig. 8
Only experience will enable you to determine the
proper settings for your personal cooking needs. The
temperatures are intended as a guide only. It may be
necessary to increase or decrease the temperature
to suit your individual requirements.
The effects of dishes on cooking results
Dishes and tins vary in their thickness, conductivity,
colour, etc. which affects the way they transmit heat
to the food inside them:
A Aluminium, earthenware, oven glassware and
bright shiny utensils reduce cooking and underneath
B Enamelled cast iron, anodized aluminium,
aluminium with non-stick interior and coloured
exterior and dark, heavy utensils increase cooking
and underneath browning.
Defrosting %
The defrosting function allows you to defrost frozen
foods. The oven fan operates without heat and
circulates the air, at room temperature, inside the
oven. This increases the rate at which defrosting
takes place.
This function is particularly suitable for delicate food
which could be damaged by heat, e.g. cream filled
gateaux, iced cakes, pastries, bread and other yeast
* Cover food with a lid, aluminium foil or plastic film
to prevent drying out during defrosting.
e Small or thin pieces of fish fillet or peeled prawns,
mince, liver and thin chops will defrost in 1-2
hours. Ensure that they are cooked or refrigerated
immediately after defrosting to maintain good food
e Place the food to be defrosted in a single layer and
turn over half way through the defrosting process,
where possible.
» Joints of meat or poultry MUST BE THAWED
oven-ready chicken will thaw in approximately 5
hours. The giblets must be removed as soon as
possible during the thawing process.
* Only joints of meat and poultry up to 2kg/4lb in
weight are suitable for defrosting in this way.
* Take care to follow the basic rules for hygiene
when handling fresh, frozen, raw and cooked foods.
* Place the frozen food a single layer where
possible, and turn it over half way through the
defrosting process.
* The actual speed of defrosting is influenced by
room temperature. On warm days defrosting will
be faster than on cooler days.
* DO NOT leave food at room temperature once it is
defrosted. Cook raw food immediately or store
cooked food in the fridge.
* Care must always be taken when handling foods
in the home. Always follow the basic rules of food
hygiene to prevent bacterial growth and cross
contamination when defrosting, preparing,
cooking, cooling and freezing foods.
e To use this function select the oven control knob to
the fan ducted cooking (x) and set the thermostat
control knob to zero (e).
All grilling must be carried out with the oven door
closed and the grill pan handle removed from the
Most foods should be placed on the grid in the grill
pan to allow maximum circulation of air to lift the food
out of the fats and juices. Food such as fish, liver and
kidneys may be placed directly on the grill pan, if
Adjust the grid and grill pan runner position to allow
for different thicknesses of food. Position the food
close to the element for faster cooking and further
away for more gentle cooking
Food should be thoroughly dried before grilling to
minimise splashing. Brush lean meats and fish lightly
with a little oil or melted butter to keep them moist
during cooking
Tomatoes and mushrooms may be placed
underneath the grid when grilling meats
When toasting bread, we suggest that the top runner
position is used with the grid in its 'high' position
Preheat the grill on a full setting for a few minutes
before sealing steaks or toasting. Adjust the heat
setting and the shelf as necessary, during cooking
The food should be turned over during cooking, as
For safety in use, the grill element is controlled
by the thermostat. During cooking, the grill
cycles on and off to prevent overheating.
Cooking time depends on the thickness of the meat
and not on its weight.

Used of ventilated grilling
Ventilated grilling offers an alternative method of
cooking food items normally associated with
conventional grilling.
The grill element and the oven fan operate
alternately, circulating hot air around the food. The
need to check and turn food is reduced. Thermal
grilling helps to minimise cooking smells in the
kitchen and allows you to grill with the oven door
closed. With the exception of toast and rare steaks,
you can thermal grill all the foods you would normally
cook under a conventional grill.
The lower part of the oven can be used to cook
accompaniments at the same time, e.g. tomatoes
and mushrooms with a mixed grill or breakfast.
Dishes prepared in advance such as shepherd's pie,
lasagne and au gratins can be heated through and
browned on the top using the thermal grilling
Turn the multifunction selector to Thermal Grill (2)
* Turn the main oven temperature control to the
required setting (A temperature of between 140°C
and 220°C is suitable for thermal grilling).
Thermal grilling helps to minimise cooking smells in
the kitchen and is carried out with the main oven
door closed, and with the grill pan handle removed.
The oven indicator neon will glow until the oven has
reached the desired temperature and then go OFF. It
will then cycle ON and OFF showing that the oven
temperature is being maintained.
The indicator windows for selector and oven
temperature control will illuminate.
The oven fan and internal oven light will come on.
The control cooling fan will operate after a short time.
It will run on after the controls are switched off until
the appliance has cooled.
Prepare foods in the same way as for conventional
grilling. Brush lean meats and fish lightly with a little
oil or butter to keep them moist during cooking.
Most foods should be placed on the grill pan grid in
the 'high' position in the grill pan to allow maximum
circulation of air around the food. Food such as fish,
liver and kidneys may be placed directly onto the
trivet in the grill pan, if preferred.
The use of the trivet beneath the grid when grilling
fatty foods will help minimise splashing.
Accompaniments such as tomatoes and mushrooms
may be placed below the grid when grilling meat, or
in a separate dish on a lower shelf.
Foods will cook more quickly the closer they are to
the grill element and the higher the temperatures
selected. Be prepared to adjust temperature and
shelf positions during cooking, if necessary.
Turn food over during cooking, as necessary.
Ensure that ready prepared or cooked chilled dishes,
e.g. shepherds pie, moussaka, lasagne, etc., are
piping hot throughout before serving.
A temperature range of 140-220°c and shelf
positions 3 and 4 are suitable for most foods. Be
prepared to make adjustments during cooking to suit
individual requirements. If thermal grilling on more
than one level, it may be necessary to interchange
the food on the shelves during cooking.
Cooking is more gentle, therefore food generally
takes a little longer to cook with thermal grilling
compared with conventional grilling. One of the
advantages is that larger loads can be cooked at the
same time.
A general guide to cooking times is given below but
these times may vary slightly depending on the
thickness and quantity of food being cooked.

The times quoted above are given as a guide and should be adjusted to suit personal taste.
The meat probe is a feature which will control the
cooking of meats by informing you of the exact
temperature at the centre of the meat. It is not
necessary to weigh the meat, the sensor determines
the cooking time. However, the cooking time is
obviously influenced by the cooking temperature.
The probe consists of a skewer like sensor at one
end of a heat resistant cable, and a plug at the other
Raise the protection lid of probe socket which is
located in the top of the left hand side of the oven.
Insert the probe sensor into the centre of the meat,
taking care to avoid touching any bone or pockets of
fat as this will give a false temperature reading.
Place the meat, in a suitable tin, into the oven cavity,
and plug the probe connecting pin into its socket.
As poultry is a difficult shape with a great deal of
bone it is difficult to register a correct finish
temperature, please ensure it is cooked thoroughly.

Traditional + Microwave
(Left, central and right areas on the display)
In combined operation maximum microwave power
used is 60%.
The display shows only the first three power
indicating dashes ill.
When setting up the microwave power level it is
advisable to carry out this operation very
carefully, since simultaneous operation of both
traditional and microwave functions produce a
great amount of heat, therefore, follow
indications given in the cookbook so as to avoid
wrong cooking operations.
1st Method
Adding microwave operation to non programmed
traditional cooking.
Place food in the oven and turn the selector knob
(Fig. 5) to a setting ranging between Il and V and the
thermostat knob (Fig. 6) to the required temperature.
Follow instructions given previously in paragraph
«Microwave cooking - semiautomatic operation». The
setting of the selector knob must remain unchanged.
When combined cooking is being carried out you can
interrupt only traditional operation by resetting to zero
the thermostat knob.
2nd Method
Adding microwave operation to the semiautomatic
traditional cooking.
Follow instructions given previously in paragraph
«Traditional cooking - semiautomatic operation»; add
the microwave cooking programme as in the first
possibility of use.
Once previously selected time for traditional cooking
is up, the programmer also interrupts microwave
operation, although the preselected time for this latter
operation is not yet up.
3rd Method
Adding microwave operation to the automatic
traditional cooking.
Place the food to be cooked in the oven, turn the
selector knob on a position ranging between Il and V
and the thermostat knob on the required
temperature, depress the end od operation
pushbutton D (Fig. 10) and on the display appears
0.00 indication and symbol —I.
To set the end of cooking time, turn knob G. Next,
depress pushbutton C and set the cooking duration
time by turning knob G; four second after the
pushbutton is released indicator lights AUTO, |»,
and >! come on, thus showing that the programme is
You can then set up as you require your microwave
programme - semiautomatic operation according to
indications given in the relevant paragraph.

Current time: 11.30
End of traditional cooking time: 13.00
Selected duration of the traditional operation: 1 hour

At 11.50 combined operation starts.
At 12.05 the programmer interrupts microwave
cooking, while traditional operation continues until
Example of combinated operation with
the microwave programme longer than
the traditional cooking programme
Current time: 11.30
End of traditional cooking time: 13.00
Selected duration of the traditional operation: 1 hour
10 minutes (70 minutes)
Selected duration of the microwave operation: 80
minutes 00 seconds
At 11.50 combined operation starts
(13.00 minus 70 mins).
At 13.00 the programmer automatically interrupts
both cooking operations, even if the duration
selected for microwave operation has not ended.
Obviously, if you wish, you may reset only the
microwave operation for the required duration.
Electric power failure
If an electric power failure occurs for a period longer
than 10 to 20 seconds all programmer informations
are cancelled (exact time, programme settings or
programmes being executed).
When the electric power is re-established the disp'ay
shows a resetting request (flashing zero digits).
Cooling fan
The oven is provided with a cooling fan for the oven
cavity and for the microwave unit located at the top of
the oven, behind the control panel.
The cold air is drawn in from outside through the
control panel, top and bottom slots of the appliance
so as to eliminate the residual heat in the microwave,
controls and cabinet areas.
The heated air flows out through the space available
between the control panel and the oven door.
To avoid overheating, once the oven is turned off
(selector to «0» position), the fan will continue to
operate until temperature reaches normal levels.
Care must be taken when handling foods in the
home. Always follow the basic rules of food hygiene
to prevent bacterial and microbial growth and cross
contamination when preparing, reheating, cooking,
cooling, defrosting and freezing foods:
1. Always ensure food you purchase is of good
quality and in prime condition. Shop at a reliable
source and buy the ‘freshest’ looking package -
avoid shopworn labels or produce covered in dust.
2. Avoid buying chilled or frozen products if you
cannot store them straight away. The use of an
insulated container when shopping is advisable.
3. Buy and consume foods prior to the 'Sell by' or
Best Before' date.
4. When you arrive home, place perishable foods in
the refrigerator or freezer immediately.
Ensure they are well covered to prevent them
drying out and to prevent any possible cross
contamination with bacteria from raw to cooked
5. Follow the cooking instructions on packets of
prepacked and cook chill foods, but be prepared to
adjust cooking time and temperatures to suit your
particular oven. For example, the fan oven
generally requires 20-25°C lower temperature than
conventional ovens.
6. Always ensure that cook chill foods are thoroughly
re-heated until they are piping hot throughout.
7. It is preferable to defrost frozen foods slowly in the
refrigerator. Alternatively, a microwave cooker or
the defrost function on your oven may be used.
8. Always cook defrosted foods immediately after
thawing. Thawed food should never be refrozen.
9. Joints of meat and poultry should be thoroughly
defrosted before cooking.
Cook meat thoroughly - use the meat probe,
which penetrates the joint to check that the
centre temperature has reached the required
temperature (see table below).
Beef Rare - 60°C
Medium - 70°C
Well Done - 80°C
Pork Well Done - 80°C
Lamb Medium - 70°C
Well Done - 80°C
If not eaten straightaway after cooking, food
should be cooled as quickly as possible (within
one hour) and then refrigerated or frozen as
required. (Do not put hot food into a Refrigerator
or Freezer).
In the kitchen keep work tops, chopping boards
and utensils clean with hot soapy water between
preparation stages. Ideailly, keep one chopping
board for raw meat and another for other foods.
Keep your dish cloths and tea towels clean.
Before cleaning always allow the cooling
fan to cool the oven down before
switching off at the electricity supply
Cleaning materials
Before using any cleaning materials on your oven,
check that they are suitable and that their use is
recommended by the manufacturer.
Cleaners that contain bleach should NOT be used as
they may dull the surface finishes. Harsh abrasives
should also be avoided.
Glass Panel
This should be cleaned with a soft cloth soaked in
warm soapy water. Do not use abrasive scourers or
steel wool.
Oven Shelves
To clean the oven shelves, soak in warm soapy
water and remove stubborn marks with a well
wetted soap impregnated pad. Rinse well and dry
with a soft cloth.
Oven Cavity
The enamelled oven cavity is best cleaned whilst the
oven is still warm. It is advisable to wipe the oven
over with a soft cloth soaked in warm soapy water
after each use. However, from time to time it will be
necessary to do a more thorough cleaning, using a
proprietary oven cleaner.
Replacing Components
Prior to undertaking any maintenance work or
replacing the oven light, be sure to disconnect
appliance from the electricity supply.
