Overheated oils and fats catch fire easily. Pay attention when cooking
food products rich in fat and oil.
If the surface is cracked, switch off the appliance to avoid the possibility
of electric shock (only for appliances with glass surface).
The appliance is not intended to be operated by means of an external
timer or separate remote control system.
Unattended cooking on a hob with fat or oil can be dangerous and may
result in fire. NEVER try to extinguish a fire with water, but switch off the
appliance and then cover flame e.g. with a lid or a fire blanket. Danger
of fire: do not store items on the cooking surfaces.
Do not use steam cleaners.
BEFORE USING THE COOKING HOB
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Before use, remove:
• adhesives stuck on the hob;
• cardboard guards and protective plastic film;
• check whether the hob has been damaged during transport. If in doubt,
contact the After Sales Service.
The hob does not work:
• Check for the presence of mains electrical power.
• Switch the hob off and then back on again, to see if the problem has
been solved.
• Make sure that the knob is not turned to “0”. Turn the multi-pole switch
to “Off” for a few minutes and then turn it back to “On”.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Important: never clean the appliance with high pressure water or steam
cleaning equipment.
• Clean the hob, when it is cool, after each use. This will prevent the
build-up of dirt and make cleaning easier.
• Use a clean cloth, absorbent kitchen wipes and washing up liquid or a
specific glass ceramic cleaner.
• Remove baked-on dirt with the special scraper tool (if provided) and
specific cleaning products.
• Food spills should be cleaned off before they bake onto the glass
ceramic surface.
• Do not use abrasive products, chlorine-based cleaners, oven-cleaner
spray or pan scourers.
• The hob should be treated periodically with specific products available
from the shops, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
ACCESSORIES
The glass cover can be ordered via the After Sales Service, with the code:
AMC 966 NB (New Black) AMC 966 MR (Mirror).
AFTER SALES SERVICE
Before contacting After-Sales Service:
• Make sure that you cannot solve the problem yourself following the
points described in chapter “Troubleshooting Guide“.
If after the above checks the fault persists, contact the nearest After
Sales Service.
Please give:
• a brief description of the fault;
• the type and exact model of the hob;
• the service number (i.e., the number that follows the word SERVICE
on the rating plate, located under the hob). The service number is also
indicated on the warranty booklet;
• your full address;
• your telephone number and area code.
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). Failure to comply with these instructions may compromise
the safety and quality of the product.
INSTALLATION
RECOMMENDATIONS
Important: Disconnect the hob from the mains before carrying out any
installation work or servicing.
• All electrical connections must be made before connecting the appliance
to the power supply.
• Installation must be carried out by a qualified technician in accordance
with the manufacturer’s instructions and in compliance with local
regulations.
• Unpack the hob and make sure that the appliance has not been damaged
during transport. If you are not sure contact the dealer or the nearest
service centre.
PREPARING THE HOUSING UNIT
• Cut the worktop to fit before installing the appliance. Carefully remove
any shavings or sawdust that could prevent the appliance from running
properly.
• The hob must be fitted in a worktop with a minimum thickness of 30 mm
and a maximum of 50 mm.
• Insert a separator at least 20 mm from the lower edge of the hob, so
that it cannot be accessed by the user.
•
•
•
•
•
•
If there is an oven under the hob, make sure that it is manufactured by
Whirlpool and equipped with a cooling system.
There must be nothing between the hob and the oven (e.g. cables,
insulating material, etc.).
An adjacent column unit must be installed at least 100 mm from the
edge of the hob.
Cut an opening in the worktop of the given dimensions.
We recommend you seal the internal edges of the worktop with wood
glue or silicone.
If not already in place, apply the supplied seal to the hob, after cleaning
the adhesive surface thoroughly.
GLASS CERAMIC HOB
Important: remove any protective film before installing the hob.
Make sure that the opening in the worktop for the hob is cut according to the
dimensions given in the drawing, paying attention to the tolerance range.
The hob should not be forced into the worktop. Forcing the glass ceramic
top may cause it to crack (even at a later date)!
• If the worktop is made of wood, use the spring clips and screws
provided.
1. Secure the spring clips (A) (fig. 1) with the screws supplied, paying
attention to the specified distances.
2. Fit the hob into the worktop.
ASSEMBLY:
After having cleaned the perimeter surface, apply the supplied gasket
to the hob as shown in the figure.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
• Regulations require that the appliance is earthed.
• Connection to the mains must be carried out by a qualified technician
in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and in compliance
with local regulations.
• The installer is responsible for connecting appliances correctly to the
mains and for observing the safety regulations.
• The power supply cable must be long enough to connect the built-in
appliance to the mains.

marked
.
If the supply cable is not already connected:
• Strip away approximately 70 mm. of the
outer sheath of the cable.
• Then strip away approximately 10 mm.
of the inner sheath.
• Open the terminal board by pushing
the side clips in with the help of a tool.
• Insert the cable in the cable (Fig. 3)
clamp and connect the wires to the
terminal board.
• Close the cover of the terminal board.
• After the electrical connection, fit the hob from the top and hook it to the
fixing springs, as shown in fig. 1.
ENERGY SAVING TIPS
• Use pots and pans whose bottom diameter is equal to, or slightly larger
than, that of the cooking zones.
• Only use flat-bottomed pots and pans.
• If possible, keep pot lids on when cooking.
• Cook vegetables, potatoes, etc. with little water in order to cut down
cooking time.
• A pressure cooker allows you to save even more energy and time.
