Operation
Electric hotplates
To switch on a hotplate, turn the relevant control knob
anticlockwise to the required heat setting.
The control knob is numbered 1 - 6
0 - OFF
1 - Minimum
6 - Maximum.
The hob has four hotplates:
Normal Hotplates
We recommend the plates are switched to maximum
(6) for a short while to boost the plate, and then adjusted
to the required setting.
Rapid Hotplates
The rapid hotplates are indicated by a red dot, and will
heat up more quickly than a normal plate. As the red
dots are painted on the plate, they may deteriorate
during use and even disappear completely after a
period of time. This will not affect the performance of
the hob.
It is important to note that the plate may smoke
a little and produce a slightly unpleasant odour
when used for the first time. This is quite normal
and will disappear after a few minutes.
Electric Hotplates Control Light
The Hotplates Control Light will come on each time a
cooking zone is switched on.
Suggestions for the correct setting of the plates are given
in the following table.

Hints and Tips
Saucepans for use on solid plates should have several
characteristics:
They should be fairly heavy duty
z
They should fit the heat area exactly, or be slightly
larger for efficient use, NEVER smaller.
z
They should have a flat base to ensure good contact
with the plate.
This is particularly important when using pans for high
temperature frying or pressure cooking.
As soon as liquid starts boiling, turn down the plate control
knob so that it will barely keep the liquid simmering.
You can switch off the plate a short while before you
finish cooking, and the final stage will be completed on
the accumulated heat. Similarly, stews etc. cooked in
well covered saucepans cook at lower temperature which
is more economical.
Ensure pans are large enough to avoid liquids
being spilt onto the plates.
Never leave the plates on without a pan on them
or with an empty pan on them.
Take care never to lean or reach over a hot electric
plate. Always point pan handles inward or over the
work surface next to the hob to avoid accidentally
knocking over a pan as you pass by.
Take care when frying food in hot oil or fat, as the
overheated splashes could easily ignite.
If the control knobs become difficult to turn, please
contact your local Service Centre.
z
Maintenance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance or cleaning can be carried
out, you must DISCONNECT the hob from the
electricity supply.
The hob is best cleaned whilst it is still warm, as spillage
can be removed more easily than if it is left to cool.
The Hob Top
Regularly wipe over the hob top using a soft cloth well
wrung out in warm water to which a little washing up liquid
has been added. Avoid the use of the following:
- household detergent and bleaches;
- impregnated pads unsuitable for non-stick saucepans;
- steel wool pads;
- bath/sink stain removers.
The control knobs may be removed by carefully pulling
them upward for easier cleaning.
The Hotplates
Spills onto the actual plate should be removed using
warm water and a soft brush, nylon or plastic scourer.
To keep the plates looking as new, hotplate conditioner
can be purchased from most hardware stores (follow
the manufacturer's instruction for use).
Alternatively, wipe the plates with a drop of olive oil on
a kitchen towel to avoid rust. It is important to note that
the plate will smoke a little and produce a slightly
unpleasant odour when next used.
Failure to clean and condition hotplates may lead
to rust and corrosion forming on the surface.
Something Not Working?
If the hob is not working correctly, please carry out the following checks before contacting your local Service Force
Centre.

Proper arrangements must be taken in designing the
furniture unit, in order to avoid any contact with the bottom
of the hob which can be hot when in operation. The
recommended solution is shown in diagram 3.

Fitting the hob to the worktop
Before fitting the hob into the cut out, a sealing gasket
supplied with the hob must be fitted to the edge of the
cut out. It is essential that no gaps are left in this seal in
order to prevent spillage near the hob seeping into the
cabinet below.
)
1) Place the sealing gasket all around the edge
of the cut out.

Seal
2) Place the hob into the cut out and secure it by
means of the relevant fixing clamps and screws,
as shown in the diagram.
3) Remove the excess seal
The edge of the hob forms a double seal which prevents

Electrical connections
Any electrical work required to install this hob
should be carried out by a qualified electrician or
competent person, in accordance with the current
regulations.
THIS HOB MUST BE EARTHED
NOTE:
The earth wire should be about 2 cm. longer than
the live and neutral wires.
6) Secure the cable by means of the clamp screws
and refit the terminal block cover.
The manufacturer declines any liability should these
safety measures not be observed.
The hob should be conncted to a double pole switch
with a minimum gap of 3 mm. between the switch
contacts and of a type suitable for the required load in
compliance with the current electric regulations. The
switch should be sited within 2m of the hob and be
easily accessible upon completion of the installation.
This hob is designed to be connected to a 230-240V
50Hz AC electrical supply.
The cable used (of the types: H05 V2V2-F T90, H05 BBF T90) must have a min. cross section of 1.5 mm².
Before switching on, make sure the electricity supply
voltage is the same as that indicated on the hob rating
plate. The rating plate is located on the bottom of the
hob. A copy is attached on the back cover of this book.
The hob is supplied without supply cord. A 3 core
flexible supply cord must be fitted.
1) Remove the mains terminal cover plate from
the underside of the hob, to expose the mains
terminal block.
2) Loosen the two cable clamp screws and lift
the top section of the clamp enough to allow
the cable to be passed through.
3) Connect the red (live) wire to the terminal
which is marked with the number 1.
4) Connect the black (neutral) wire to the
terminal which is marked with the number 4.
5) After fitting a green or yellow/green sleeve
over the bare copper wire (earth wire),
connect the exposed end to the terminal which
is marked with the earth symbol
or with
the number 5.
The switch must not break the yellow and green earth
cable at any point.
Ensure that the hob supply cord does not
come into contact with surfaces with
temperatures higher than 50 deg. C.
