the Eco Booster function allows the water to be boil and kept boiling, avoiding spilling, with a reduction of energy consumption.
To optimize this control and ensure the best energy saving, it is advisable to use a pot with bottom width similar to that of the selected cooking zone. The quality of the
pot used, the presence or absence of the lid or salt, can affect the performance of the function. 2 to 3 liters of water (preferably at room temperature) is recommended,
and its advisable not to use the lid. In any case it is advisable to keep a check on the boiling conditions and the amount of residual water.
Automatic function
The function automatically sets a power level suitable for maintaining a low boil. Activate this function after bringing to the boil, pressing the corresponding zone
button first and then the button .
Keep Warm
This function automatically sets a power level that keeps just-cooked food hot and serving dishes warm (with induction-suitable accessory). 
Press the key: “A” appears on the display and the indicator light turns on. To deactivate the function, simply press button.
After bringing to the boil, press the key and the hob will automatically set the correct power level to keep the pot simmering. “A” appears on the display: the indicator light
lights up. To deactivate the function, simply press button.
This function maintains a permanently low temperature in the cooking zone. After positioning the pot/accessory on the chosen cooking zone, switch on the hob and select the
cooking zone. Press the key: “A” appears on the display and the indicator light turns on. To deactivate the function, simply press button.
Residual heat indicator.
The hob is fitted with a residual heat indicator for each cooking zone. These indicators alert the user when cooking zones are still hot.

dish warm or to melt butter.
When the cooking zone cools down, the display goes off.
Incorrect or missing pot indicator.
If you are using a pot that is not suitable, not correctly positioned or not of the correct dimensions for your induction hob, the message “no pot” will
appear in the display (see figure at side). If no pot is detected within 60 seconds, the hob switches off.
Fast boil function (Booster)
This function, only present on some cooking zones, makes it possible to exploit the hob’s maximum power (for example to bring water to the boil very quickly).
To activate the function, press the “+” button until “P” appears on the display. After 10 minutes’ use of the booster function, the appliance automatically sets the
zone to level 9.
“Power management” (Function where it is available)
Thanks to the “Power management” function, the user can set the maximum power the hob can reach, as required.
This setting is possible at any time and is maintained until the next change.
By setting the required maximum power, the hob automatically adjusts distribution in the various cooking zones, ensuring that this limit is never exceeded; with the
advantage of also being able to manage all the zones simultaneously, but without overload problems.
4 maximum power levels are available and showed on display: 2.5 – 4.0 – 6.0 – 7.2 kW (7.2 kW is considered as max power of cooktop)

Call the After-Sales Service and specify the error code
Induction hobs can make whistling or crackling sounds during normal operation, these actually come from the pots and pans as a result of the characteristics of the
bottoms (for example, bottoms made of several layers of material, or uneven bottoms). These noises vary depending on the pots and pans used and the amount of food
they contain, and are not indicative of a defect of any kind.
In addition, the induction hob is equipped with an internal cooling system to control the temperature of electronic parts; as a result, during operation and for several minutes
after the hob has been switched off, the noise of the cooling fan will be audible. This is perfectly normal and indeed essential for proper functioning of the appliance.
Before contacting the After-sales Service:
1. See if you can solve the problem yourself with the help of the “Troubleshooting guide”.
2. Switch the appliance off and then on again it to see if the problem has been eliminated.
If the problem persists after the above checks, contact the nearest After-Sales Service.
Always specify:
• a brief description of the fault;
• the product type and exact model;
• the serial number located under the appliance, also available in the attached technical documentation.
• your full address;
• your telephone number.
If any repairs are required, contact an authorised After-Sales Service Centre (to ensure the use of original spare parts and correct repairs). Spare parts are available for 10 years.
