9

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 Reaching over a hot stovetop to access the cabinets can result in burns. You can reduce the risk of burns by installing a range hood that extends at least 4³/₄" (12 cm) past the bottom of the cabinets.

10

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Correct use

 Do not leave the rangetop unattended when cooking on high power. Spilled food will begin to smoke and cause grease splatter, which can ignite on the range.

 Oil and fat can catch fire if overheated. Never leave the appliance unattended when cooking with oil and fat. If the oil or fat catches fire, do not attempt to put the flames out with water.

Turn off the rangetop and smother the flames using a lid or a suitable fire blanket.

 Smother the fire or flames, or use a dry chemical extinguishing agent or foam fire extinguisher.

 Storage in or on the appliance: Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven or in the vicinity of the rangetop.

 The flames could set the grease filters of a ventilation hood on fire.

Do not flambé under a ventilation hood.

 Never heat empty cookware.

 Do not heat up food in closed containers, as pressure will build up in the container, causing them to explode. Do not use the rangetop to boil or heat up cans.

 If the rangetop is covered, there is a risk that the material of the cover will ignite, explode or if the range is still hot or if turned on inadvertently. Never cover the range with a board, cloth, or protective sheet.

 When using an electrical appliance, e.g., a hand mixer, near the rangetop, make sure that the power cable does not come into contact with the hot range. The cable's insulation could become damaged.

 Cookware made of plastic or aluminum foil will melt at high temperatures. Do not use any plastic or aluminum foil cookware.

11

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 The rangetop gets hot when in use and remains hot for some time after being turned off. Do not touch the appliance if there is a possibility that it could still be hot.

 You can burn yourself on a hot rangetop. When cooking on the appliance, protect your hands by using heat-resistant pot holders or oven mitts. Only use dry pot holders or gloves. Wet or damp textiles conduct heat more effectively and produce steam, which poses a burn hazard. Be sure to keep all textiles away from the gas flames.

Do not use oversized cloths, dish towels or other similar materials.

 If the rangetop is accidentally turned on or is still hot, metal objects on the appliance can heat up. Other items may melt or catch fire. Do not place unused items on the range for storage!

 A range hood installed above the range can become damaged or catch fire as a result of intense heat. Do not use the gas burners without cookware.

 The high temperatures radiated could cause objects near the rangetop to catch fire.

Do not use the range to heat the room.

 Only light the gas burners after all burner parts have been properly assembled.

 If the cookware is too small, it will not sit properly on the burner. If the cookware is too large, heat emitted from the bottom of the cookware may damage the counter, walls with poor heat resistance (e.g., paneled walls), or portions of the rangetop.

 Make sure that the burner flames do not extend beyond the bottom of the cookware and rise up its sides.

 Only use cookware with a thick enough bottom. Failure to do so may result in damage to the rangetop.

 Always use the burner grates supplied with the cooktop. Never place cookware directly on the burner.

12

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 Install the burner grates in an upright position to avoid scratching the cooktop.

 Remove all grease splatters and other flammable (food) residues on the rangetop. They are a fire hazard.

 Do not use pots or pans that are large enough to cover several burners. The resulting heat buildup can damage the appliance.

 If the rangetop has not been used for a long period of time, be sure to thoroughly clean it and have it inspected by an authorized technician before using it again.

 The use of the rangetop creates heat, moisture and combustion products in the room where it is installed. Make sure that the appliance is installed in location with sufficient ventilation. Natural ventilation openings should not be blocked. Alternatively, a mechanical ventilation device (e.g. a range hood) can be installed.

 Prolonged intensive use of the appliance may require additional ventilation of the room, e.g., by opening a window, or by turning the range hood to a higher setting.

 Ask your installer to show you the location of your gas shutoff valve and fuses or circuit breaker panel in your apartment or home.

Be sure that you know how and where to disconnect the gas and power supply to your rangetop.

 Ensure that the igniters are clean and dry to allow the burners to ignite and burn properly.

 Fire hazard! Loose-fitting or hanging garments can catch fire. Be sure to wear appropriately fitting clothing when cooking. Never allow loose clothing or flammable materials to come into contact with the burners while the burners are in use.

 When you have finished cooking, make sure that the burners are turned off by checking the position of the knobs.

13

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 The grates, burner cap, bottom parts of the burner, and any other parts located near the burner flame, can still be very hot after cooking and cause burns. Do not touch these components when using the rangetop.

 Wind can blow curtains over the rangetop, causing them to catch fire. If the range is installed near a window, do not use long curtains.

 Only certain types of glass, ceramic or other enamel cookware can be used on a gas rangetop without breaking as a result of sudden temperature changes.

 Do not use cooking utensils on the grill.

 Wet sponges or clothes can cause burns due to hot steam if they are used to wipe spilled food off a hot burner. Some cleansers can emit hazardous vapors if they are applied to a hot surface. Be careful when cleaning the cooktop.

14

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 Fire hazard due to overheated food.

Unattended food can overheat and ignite.

Do not leave the cooktop unattended whilst it is being used.

Do not turn the control knobs to the right beyond “Off”.

A spark may be generated on all burners when a control knob is turned on.

This is normal and does not indicate an appliance defect.

A brief reignition may occur during activation (clicking 1–2 x), e.g., in case of a draft.

Automatic re-ignition

Your rangetop is equipped with an automatic re-ignition function. If the flame goes out, e.g. because food has cooked over or there has been an air draft, the flame is automatically re-ignited.

 If there has been a power failure, the automatic re-ignition feature will not work properly.

Operate the cooktop only under supervision. If the burner has not ignited or the flame goes out, turn off the burner knob.

Operation tips

23

Before first use

Cleaning the rangetop for the first time

 Remove any protective foil and stickers.

 Using a soft sponge, clean all removable burner parts with a solution of warm water and a small amount of liquid dish soap. Dry the parts thoroughly after cleaning and reassemble the burners (see “Cleaning and care”).

 Remove the grilling grate and, using a soft sponge, clean it with a solution of warm water and a small amount of dishwashing liquid. Dry it thoroughly after cleaning.

 The griddle plate is oiled for protection against corrosion. Clean the griddle plate with a soft sponge, a small amount of dishwashing liquid, and warm water, and dry it.

 Before first use, wipe down the appliance with a damp cloth and dry it.

Metal components are protected by a conditioning agent. Smells and vapor may occur when the appliance is used for the first time.

The smell and any vapors do not indicate a faulty connection or a defective appliance and are not harmful to your health.

Seasoning the griddle plate

You must season the griddle plate before cooking food on it the first time.

This process prevents food from sticking and protects the surface from moisture.

 Set the griddle plate on “High” for

30 minutes.

 Turn off the griddle plate after 30 minutes and let it cool down.

During heating, the griddle plate constantly changes color. The discoloration may become more intensive over time. The properties of the griddle plate, however, are not impaired in this manner.

 Pour 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil that can be heated to a high temperature in the middle of the cooled griddle plate and distribute it with a paper towel, leaving out the corners of the plate.

Do not use too much oil. Excess oil leaves a rubbery substance on the plate that has to be removed.

 Remove any excess oil with a paper towel.

 Heat the griddle plate on “High” until it starts to smoke.

 Turn off the griddle plate.

 When the griddle plate has cooled down to a safe temperature, wash off the excess oil.

 Repeat the process once the griddle plate has cooled down completely.

24

Operation of the burners

Turning on

 To ignite a burner, push the appropriate control knob and turn it counterclockwise to the “High” position. The ignitor “clicks” and ignites the gas.

 If the burner fails to light, turn the control knob to the “Off” position. Air the room or wait at least 1 minute before trying again.

 If the second attempt also fails to light the burner, turn the control knob to the “Off” position and refer to the

“Frequently asked questions” section.

Control Knob

Off Gas supply is off:

Burner off

High Strongest flame setting:

Maximum power of upper and lower flame rings

Simmer Weakest flame setting:

Minimum power of lower flame ring

Turning on during a power outage

In case of a power failure, the flame can be ignited manually.

 Press in the burner knob and turn it counterclockwise to “High.”

 Light the emerging gas/air mixture with a match.

25

Operation of the burners

Adjusting the flame

The burners can be variably adjusted between the lowest and highest flame settings.

Because the edges of the flame are much hotter than its center, the flame tips should stay beneath the bottom of the cookware. Flame tips which extend beyond the sides of the cookware emit unnecessary heat into the room and can also damage cookware handles, which increases the risk of injury.

Visual characteristics gas flames

Yellow flames

Contact the Miele

Service Department.

Yellow tips on outer cones

Normal for propane gas

 Adjust the flame so that it never extends up the sides of the cookware.

Soft blue flames yellow colour is only allowed at the tip of the inner cone

Normal for natural gas

Turning off

Do not turn the control knob clockwise past the “Off” position.

 Turn the control knob to the right until it reaches the “Off” position.

This stops the flow of gas, and the flame goes out.

26

Cookware

– Select cookware that fits the size of the burner:

Large diameter = large burner

Small diameter = small burner

– Using cookware that is too large can cause the flames to spread out and damage the surrounding countertop or other appliances. Choosing the right cookware size improves efficiency.

– Any cookware that has a diameter smaller than the burner grate or which does not rest in a stable position on the grate (without wobbling) is dangerous and should not be used.

– Unlike cookware that is used on an electric cooktop, the bottom of cookware used on a rangetop does not have to be flat to deliver effective cooking performance.

– When purchasing pots and pans, keep in mind that the diameter indicated is typically the top diameter, not the bottom diameter.

– All heat-resistant cookware is suitable for use.

– Cookware with a thick bottom is preferable, as it distributes heat more evenly. Cookware with a thin bottom may cause food to overheat in certain spots. To avoid this, stir the food frequently.

– Always place cookware on the burner grate supplied with the rangetop.

Never place it directly on the burner.

– Position the cookware on the burner grate so that it cannot tip. There is always a possibility of a slight tilt, despite the proper position.

– Do not use pots or pans that have bottoms with pronounced edges.

27

Energy saving tips

– Whenever possible, keep pots and pans covered while cooking. Doing so will prevent unnecessary heat loss.

– Wide, shallow cookware heats up faster and is therefore preferable to tall, narrow cookware.

– Cook with as little water as possible.

– Reduce the power setting once the water has come to a boil or the oil/fat is hot enough for frying.

– Use a pressure cooker to reduce the cooking time.

28

The grill has a ceramic burner that transfers intense heat to food, searing the outside to seal the juices. Full flexibility, depending on the food, from

“Low” to “High” as power settings.

Assembling the grill

 Burn hazard!

The burners must be turned off and allowed to cool completely.

 Risk of injury!

The cast-iron grill is heavy.

Carry the grill carefully and place it securely on a soft base so that it lies flat.

Tips for grilling

 Fire hazard!

Do not leave the appliance unattended while cooking!

– Pat down wet food items with paper towel to prevent splatters during grilling.

– Do not salt meat until after grilling, or it will be too dry.

– Select lean mean or cut off fat before grilling. Dripping fat can catch on fire.

– If dripping fat catches on fire, use grilling tongs to move the meat to another spot or remove it entirely.

– Remove chicken skin to prevent sparking.

– Halfway through cooking, brush marinade onto the food.

– Leave the grill on for another 10 minutes after you have finished grilling.

This makes cleaning easier after cooking.

30

Operation of the griddle

The griddle is thermostatically controlled to maintain a consistent temperature. To prevent food from sticking, it is necessary to “season” the griddle prior to use (see “Before using for the first time”). Full flexibility, depending on the food, from “Low”, “Medium” and “High” as power settings.

Turning on the griddle

Always observe USDA food safety guidelines.

 Press the control knob of the griddle and turn it counterclockwise to

“Low.”

 If the burner fails to light, turn the control knob to the “Off” position. Air the room or wait at least 1 minute before trying again.

Tips for frying

Before each use, wipe the griddle with a damp cloth to remove dust or other residue.

– Pre-heat the griddle plate thoroughly for 8–10 minutes at the power level that you are going to be using for cooking.

– Pat down wet food items with paper towel to prevent splatters during grilling.

– Do not salt meat until after grilling, or it will be too dry.

– For cooking with the griddle plate, you need only a little fat or none in the case of marinated food. If you use cooking fat, do not put it on the griddle plate until it is hot.

– Only use fats/oils that can tolerate high temperatures.

– Marinating often improves the flavor of food to be cooked.

32

 Danger of burns!

The burners must be turned off and the rangetop must be cooled.

 Danger of injury!

The steam from a steam cleaner could reach electrical components and cause a short circuit.

Do not use a steam cleaner to clean the rangetop.

All rangetop surfaces can become discolored or damaged if unsuitable cleaning agents are used.

All surfaces are susceptible to scratching.

Remove any cleaning agent residues immediately.

Cleaning and care

Always clean the rangetop after each use. Allow it to cool down before cleaning.

To better maintain your appliance avoid the following:

– cleaners containing soda, ammonia, thinners, or chlorides

– descaling agents

– Stain or rust removers

– Abrasive cleaning agents (e.g., powder or cream cleansers, pumice stones)

– solvent-based cleaners

– dishwasher detergent

– grill and oven sprays

– glass cleaning agents

– hard, abrasive brushes or sponges

(e.g. pot scrubbers or scrub sponges, sponges which have previously been used with abrasive cleaning agents)

– sharp objects

(these could damage the seals between the ceramic and the frame or between the frame and the countertop).

33

Cleaning and care

Rangetop

The surfaces of the burner components and grates will slightly lose their luster over time. This is completely normal and does not indicate damage to the material.

 Clean the entire rangetop after each use with a soft sponge, warm water and a small amount of liquid dish soap.

 Pre-soak any stubborn dirt or grime before cleaning.

 Dry the rangetop after using water to clean it. This helps prevent lime deposits.

Tip: Food that has cooked over onto a hot rangetop can cause the burner components to become discolored. Immediately remove all spilled food and all salt or sugar splatters!

Dishwasher-safe grates

Electrical connection

 ATTENTION:

During installation, maintenance and repair work, the rangetop must be disconnected from the electricity supply. It is only completely isolated from the electricity supply if the plug fuses have been fully unscrewed

(where applicable), the main circuit breaker has been tripped or the power cable has been unplugged from the wall outlet.

Do not cut off the plug on the power cord. If the plug does not fit in the outlet, have an electrician install an appropriate outlet.

The socket must be easily accessible after the rangetop has been installed.

Installation, repair and maintenance work should only be performed by a

Miele authorized service technician.

Work by unqualified persons can cause considerable danger to users.

Miele cannot be held liable for any damage arising as a result of such work.

To avoid damaging the rangetop, make sure that the information (voltage and frequency) on the data plate correspond to the building's power supply before connecting the appliance.

When in doubt, consult a qualified electrician.

The plug must be inserted into a suitable outlet that has been installed and grounded in compliance with all applicable local regulations.

WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST

BE GROUNDED

Installer: Please pass these instructions on to the customer.

Electrical connection

The rangetop is equipped with an approx. 4 ft. long power cord with a plug for connection to the electrical supply with:

– 120 V, 15 A, 60 Hz

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR

THE ELECTRICAL INSPECTOR'S

USE.

This appliance must be grounded in compliance with all applicable local and national regulations.

Installation, repair and maintenance work should only be performed by a

Miele authorized service technician in compliance with local regulations and the ANSI National Electrical

Code / NFPA 70 in the United States or the Canadian Electrical Code, Part

I in Canada (CSA standard C22.1).

46

 Connection to the gas supply may only be performed by a duly authorized technician. This technician is responsible for proper function at the installation site.

In Massachusetts, the gas connection may be performed only by a certified gas installer.

The rangetop must be connected with its own shut-off valve.

The shut-off valve must be accessible and visible, after the opening of a cabinet door, if necessary.

The gas connection of the rangetop can be to natural gas or propane gas according to the model.

Ask your gas company what kind of gas is used and compare it with the specifications on the data plate.

The rangetop is not connected to an exhaust vent.

During the setup and connection of the rangetop, observe the applicable installation conditions, especially suitable ventilation measures.

The gas connections must be arranged in such a way that they are not heated and damaged by the operation of the range.

In particular, make sure that the gas hose lines and connection fittings on the rangetop do not come into contact with hot exhaust gases.

Gas connection

The gas hose and power cord could be damaged by hot spots on the rangetop.

Make sure that the gas hose and power cord do not come into contact with hot spots on the rangetop.

Flexible connection lines can be damaged by incorrect routing.

Attach flexible connecting lines in such a way so that they do not come into contact with any moving kitchen parts (e.g., a drawer) and are not exposed to mechanical stress.

The rangetop and the shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply during gas pressure tests.

Disconnect the rangetop and the shut-off valve from the gas supply before performing a gas pressure test at a pressure of more than

1/2 psi (3.5 kPA). Close the shut-off valve of the gas supply before performing a gas pressure test at a pressure of less than or equal to

1/2 psi (3.5 kPA).

Incorrectly sealed gas lines can lead to a gas leak and thus to an explosion.

Seal all gas lines with a suitable thread sealant.

Seal tightness tests on the rangetop must be performed according to manufacturer specifications.

47

Gas connection

The gas connection must be made in accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with:

National Fuel Gas Code

ANSI Z 223.1 / NFPA No. 54 for the

United States or the current Can /

CGA B 149.1 and 2 Installation

Codes of Gas Appliances for

Canada.

The gas pressure may not undershoot or exceed certain values.

Make sure that the maximum gas pressure upstream of the gas pressure controller does not amount to more than 1/2 psi (3.5 kPA) for natural and propane gas.

Make sure that the minimum gas pressure amounts to a 6“ water head in the case of natural gas and a

11” (279.4 mm) water head in the case of propane gas.
