This product MUST be installed by a qualified fitter in accordance with local


This appliance has been designed for non-professional, domestic use only.


Carefully unpack and examine the appliance for any damage. If you think there is a defect, do not use the appliance and contact Argos Product Support on

01759 487838.


The cooker is supplied setup according to the conditions shown on the rating label which is stuck to the rear of the appliance.


Keep the electrical cable of your oven away from the hot areas; do not let them touch the appliance. Keep them away from sharp edges and heated surfaces.


In the event that the flexible cable is damaged, contact your authorised service agent for replacement - the cable fitted to this appliance must not be replaced by an unauthorised person.


When using the grill the oven door must be kept closed to prevent damage to the cooker knobs and to prevent the burn hazard that very hot knobs would present.


The cooker control knobs have a safety feature to prevent children from operating them. They must be pressed in before they can be turned from the off position. Do not attempt to turn them without pressing as this is likely to break the knobs.


Children and persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge should not be allowed to use the cooker unless supervised and warned of the hazards involved


The appliance and its accessible parts become hot during use. Care should be taken to avoid touching hot parts.


Cooking on a hob with fat or oil can be dangerous and should not be left unattended.


NEVER try to extinguish a cooking fire with water. Instead switch off the appliance and cover flame e.g. with a lid or a fire blanket.


Danger of fire: do not store items on the cooking surfaces or in the oven.


Cookers may topple forward if a child climbs onto the cooker door. Children should be supervised in the kitchen at all times and this cooker must be secured to the wall using the fixing points provided to prevent accidents.


Do not allow children in the kitchen when cooking or while cooker parts may still be hot. Many parts of the cooker will become hot and present a considerable hazard to children.


When the oven is hot never touch the oven glass by hand or with tools.


Before starting to use your appliance, ensure curtains, paper or flammable items are kept away from your appliance. Do not keep flammable materials inside of or around your cooker.


Take care when closing the oven door that there is nothing obstructing it from closing as this may break the glass oven door.

Positioning and fixing to the wall


1. Make sure that there are no combustible or flammable materials, such as curtains, in the vicinity of the installation.

2. Furniture and cabinets surrounding the oven must be of material resistant to temperatures greater than 50°C.

3. Surrounding furniture, cabinets and extractor fans should be positioned in accordance with the diagram shown in Figure 1.

4. There must be at least 2cm of free space between the back wall and the rear of the appliance to allow for ventilation and air circulation.

5. If fitted, the extractor fan must be at least 65cm above the hob. If no fan is fitted the minimum distance between the hob and any cabinet or other structure must be 75cm.

Fixing to the wall

Before using the appliance fix it securely to the wall using the chains on the back of the cooker. This will prevent the cooker from toppling forward if excess weight is placed on the oven door. Since the chains must be attached to wall fixings suitable for your wall type, the wall fixings are not supplied with the cooker (Figure 2).

Please refer to the ‘Guide to Wall Mounting and Fixings’ on page 12.


Level the cooker before using it. To do this, use the adjustable feet to achieve the correct level and height

Electrical connection

Argos Product Support 01759 487838 IMPORTANT:


Electrical connections must be carried out by a suitably qualified person and in accordance with all relevant local building and installation 1. See the rating label at the rear of the product for the appliance’s rated load.

2. The cooker must be connected to a dedicated circuit suitably rated for the load of the appliance (see rating label at rear of appliance) as shown in the wiring diagrams below. It must be connected via a suitably rated cable to a double pole isolator cooker switch also suitably rated for the appliance.

3. Electrical cable should not touch the hot parts of the appliance.

The electrical cable should not be routed through any area that may be affected by heat from the oven, especially the area directly behind the oven.

User Instructions

Using the Hob Each ceramic hob is regulated by a selector knob (Fig. 3). The control allows for the efficient transfer of heat to the cooking pan.

The knob can be turned in both directions, to numbers 1 to 6 These numbers correspond to the power setting of the ceramic hob where 6 is the highest setting and 1 is the lowest.

Turn the hob control knob to off ( l ) when finished.

We recommend you turn off the ceramic hob 5 to 10 minutes before the dish is ready. This allows the heat accumulated in the ceramic hob to be used economically. The ceramic hob remains hot for a while after use.

SAFETY ADVICE IN THE CASE OF A COOKING PAN FIRE In the event of a cooking pan fire:

1. Turn off the cooker at the wall switch.

2. Cover the pan with a fire blanket or damp cloth. This will smother the flames and extinguish the fire.

3. Leave the pan to cool for at least an hour before attempting to move it. Injuries are often caused by picking up a hot pan and rushing outside with it.

NEVER USE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER TO PUT OUT A PAN FIRE as the force of the extinguisher could tip the pan over.

Never use water to extinguish oil or fat pan fires.

Figure 3 Hob hot indicater Hob for this knob Front right


• Any cookware should have a thick, flat and dry base of the same diameter or slightly bigger than the hob. If the cookware diameter is smaller than the hob, heat will be wasted.

• Cookware with uneven bases is very inefficient, making the cooking time longer and wasting electricity.

• Cookware made of flameproof glass, suitable for ceramic hob cooking, should match the hob size. Pans projecting beyond the hob may be broken due to temperature stresses. The heated pan must never be filled up with cold water or placed on cold metal or stone surfaces.

• Always use the pan with its lid on. This prevents the accumulation of vapour in the kitchen.

Only use flat bottomed pans


1. Never turn the hob on before placing a pan on it, except when first used.

2. If the ceramic hob is not to be used for a long time, apply a little grease to the painted surface.

3. Do not allow spills to be burned onto the hob as baked stains are harder to remove 6
