A fan distributes the heat generated by an electrical heating element throughout the interior of the appliance. The thermostat allows the user to set and control the temperature for the crockery. The circulating hot air that is generated heats up the crockery quickly and evenly. A protective grille prevents accidental contact with the heating element and fan. The base of the drawer is covered with non-slip material to stop dishes from moving when the drawer is opened or closed. ENGLISH 3. 9 USE 3.1 Before First Use Before using the appliance for the first time you should clean the interior and the exterior, following the cleaning instructions given in the section “Cleaning and maintenance”. Remove the non-slip base. Then heat the warming drawer for at least 2 hours. To do this, turn the temperature control to the maximum position (see section “Selecting temperature”). Make sure the kitchen is well-ventilated when you are doing this. The appliance’s parts are treated with a special product. This may cause an unpleasant odour to be released during this initial heating. Both the odour and any fumes that may form will disappear after a short time and neither signifies that there is anything wrong with the connection or the appliance. 3.2 Control panel The control panel has a selector and an on/off switch. The control panel is only visible when the drawer is open. 3.3 Using the warming drawer To use the warming drawer, proceed as follows: • Place the crockery in the drawer. • Do not arrange plates vertically in front of the ventilation slots. The warm air would not be able to fully escape from the slots. This would lead to uneven heating of crockery. • Select the desired function by turning the thermostat knob to the corresponding position. • Switch on the appliance by pressing the switch; the corresponding light will come on. • Close the drawer. Be careful not to use too much force when closing the drawer since it may open up again. Before taking out the warm crockery you must switch off the warming drawer by pressing the switch again. 3.4 Function Selection The thermostat knob allows you to select temperatures between 30 and 80°C. Do not force the thermostat knob to the left beyond the "0" position, or to the right beyond the maximum temperature, as this could damage it. As soon as the selected temperature is reached, the heating element will turn off. When the temperature drops back below the selected value, the heating element will turn on again. The temperature scale is marked with absolute temperatures in °C and also has symbols which correspond to the optimum temperatures for groups of crockery: 10 www.aeg.com Symbol °C (*) Function Warning 30°C Defrosting. Dough proving. Yoghurt fermentation. Cover the dough. Cover the tub. 45°C Warming cups and glasses. - 60°C Warming dinner plates. Reheating delicate foodstuffs. Preheat the dish. 70°C Keeping foodstuffs warm. Preheat the dish and cover the food. 80°C Reheating foodstuffs. Preheat the dish. * The temperatures refer to the drawer when empty and closed. 3.5 Heating times Various factors affect heating times: • The material and thickness of the crockery • Load size • How the crockery is arranged • Temperature setting • Repeated opening and closing of the drawer It is therefore not possible to give precise heating times. As you use the warming drawer regularly, you will learn the best settings for your crockery. Suggestions for the “keep warm” and “reheat” function: Preheat the warming drawer for 15 minutes to ensure it is at the required internal temperature. ENGLISH 4. 11 CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE Cleaning is the only maintenance activity that is generally required. WARNING! The warming drawer must be disconnected from the power supply before cleaning. Unplug the device from the socket or isolate its power supply circuit. Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaning products, scouring pads/sponges or sharp objects, since this could cause stains or scratches. Never use high pressure or steam jet cleaning appliances. 4.1 Appliance front and control panel The warming drawer can be cleaned using just a damp cloth. If it is very dirty, add few drops of washing-up liquid to the water. Wipe the surfaces dry using a dry cloth. For stainless-steel fronted warming drawers, special products for stainlesssteel surfaces can be used. These products prevent the build-up of dirt on such surfaces. Apply a thin layer of this product on the surface using a soft cloth. On aluminium fronted warming drawers, use a delicate glass cleaning product and a soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe horizontally without applying. 4.2 Interior of the warming drawer Clean the interior of the warming drawer regularly using a damp cloth. If it is very dirty, add few drops of washing-up liquid to the water. Wipe the surfaces dry using a dry cloth. Avoid water entering the air circulation opening. Only use the warming drawer again when it is completely dry. Non-slip base The non-slip surface mat can be removed to facilitate cleaning of the drawer. The mat can be cleaned by hand using hot water with a few drops of washing-up liquid. Dry thoroughly. The non-slip mat should only be replaced when it is completely dry. 12 www.aeg.com 5. WHAT SHOULD I DO IF THE WARMING DRAWER DOESN’T WORK? WARNING! Any repairs must only be performed by a specialised technician. Any repair performed by a person not authorised by the manufacturer is potentially dangerous. However, the following faults can be resolved by the user without calling Technical Assistance. Before contacting Technical Assistance, check on the following: • The crockery does not warm up sufficiently. Check whether: − The appliance is on − The appropriate temperature has been selected − The air circulation orifices are blocked by the crockery − The crockery was left to warm up for sufficient time 6. • Heating time depends on several factors, such as, for example: − The material and thickness of the crockery − Load size − How the crockery is arranged • The crockery does not heat up at all. Check whether: − You can hear the noise of the fan If the fan is running, this means that the heating element is defective. If the fan is not running, this means that it is faulty − The fuse has blown or the circuit breaker has tripped • The crockery is too hot: − The temperature selector is not working • The on/off switch does not light up: − The switch indicator light has blown INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS 6.1 Before installation Check that the supply voltage indicated on the data plate is the same as that provided by the power socket you plan to use.
