7

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Technical safety

 Unauthorized installation, maintenance, and repairs can cause considerable danger for the user. Installation, maintenance, and repairs must only be carried out by a Miele authorized technician.

 Maintenance by the user: Never repair or replace any part of the appliance unless the instructions specifically recommend doing so.

Service work should only be performed by a qualified technician.

 Damage to the cooktop can compromise your safety. Check the cooktop for visible signs of damage. Do not use the cooktop if it is damaged.

 Reliable and safe operation of the cooktop can only be guaranteed if it is connected to the public power supply.

 Be certain your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician. To guarantee the electrical safety of this appliance, continuity must exist between the appliance and an effective grounding system. It is imperative that this basic safety requirement be met. If there is any doubt, have the electrical system of the house checked by a qualified electrician.

 Proper installation: Make sure that your appliance has been installed correctly and that it has been grounded by a qualified technician.

 To avoid damaging the cooktop, make sure that the connection data (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.

 Do not connect the appliance to the electrical supply with a power bar or extension cord. These are a fire hazard and do not guarantee the required safety of the appliance.

 For safety reasons, the cooktop may only be used when it has been fully installed.

8

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 This appliance must not be used in a non-stationary location (e.g.

- Shut off the gas supply.

9

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 Danger of electric shock. Do not use the cooktop if it is faulty, or if the ceramic surface is cracked, chipped, or damaged in any way.

Switch it off immediately. Disconnect it from the electricity and gas supply. Contact Miele Service.

 If the cooktop is installed behind a cabinet (e.g., a door), do not close the cabinet door while the cooktop is in operation. Heat and moisture can build up behind the cabinet door when closed. This can result in damage to the cooktop, housing unit, and floor. Leave the cabinet door open until the cooktop has cooled down completely.

 Reaching over a hot cooktop to access the cabinets can result in burns. You can reduce the risk of burns by installing a ventilation hood that extends at least 4  ¾ " (12 cm) past the bottom of the cabinets.

 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 cooktop.

10

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Correct use

 The cooktop 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.

 When in use, the cooktop emits a significant amount of heat, which can cause objects in the vicinity to catch fire.

Never use the cooktop to heat the room.

 Do not leave the cooktop unattended when cooking on high power. Spilled food will begin to smoke and cause grease splatter, which can ignite on the cooktop. Doing so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning and overheating of the appliance.

 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 cooktop 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.

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

Do not flambé under a ventilation hood.

 Spray canisters, aerosols and other inflammable substances can ignite when heated. Therefore do not store such items or substances in a drawer under the appliance. Cutlery inserts must be heat-resistant.

 Never heat empty cookware.

 Do not heat or can food in closed containers, such as tins or sealed jars, on the cooktop, as pressure will build up in the container and cause it to explode.

11

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

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

 When the appliance is turned on inadvertently or by mistake, or when there is residual heat present, there is a risk of the metal items heating up. Other materials can melt or catch fire when the appliance is switched on. Do not store items on the cooktop.

 You can burn yourself on a hot cooktop. 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.

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

 Even a light object can cause damage to the ceramic cooktop in certain circumstances. Do not drop anything on the ceramic surface.

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

 Pressing the knob generates a spark on the ignitor. Do not press the knob while you are cleaning or touching the cooktop or a burner in the vicinity of an ignitor.

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

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

12

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

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

 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 cooktop.

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

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

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

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

 Using of a gas cooktop causes heat, moisture and products of combustion to build up in the room in which it is installed. Make sure that your kitchen is well ventilated, especially when the appliance is in use: keep any natural means of ventilation open or install a mechanical ventilation system (e.g. a ventilation hood).

 If the cooktop is used for very long periods of time, additional ventilation of the room may be necessary, e.g. by opening windows or doors, or running the ventilation on the highest setting.

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

 If the cooktop 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.

13

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 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.

 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 cooktop.

 Wind can blow curtains over the cooktop, causing them to catch fire. If the cooktop 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 cooktop without breaking as a result of sudden temperature changes.

 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

Cleaning and maintenance

 Do not use a steam cleaner to clean the cooktop.

The steam may reach electrical components and cause a short circuit.

 Miele will guarantee to supply functional parts for a minimum of

10 years and up to 15 years following the discontinuation of your cooktop.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS AND REVIEW THEM PERIODICALLY

15

Caring for the environment

Before first use

Cleaning the cooktop for the first time

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

 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”).

Turning on the cooktop for the first time

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.

20

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 cooktop 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 the cookware on the pot rests supplied. Do not place cookware directly on the burners.

- 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.

21

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.

22

Operation

 Fire hazard due to overheated food.

Unattended food can overheat and ignite.

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

Turning the appliance on

 Press in the control knob and turn it counterclockwise to the large flame symbol. The ignitor “clicks” and ignites the gas.

When a control knob is activated, a spark is developed automatically on all burners. This is normal and does not indicate a fault.

 When a flame is visible, keep the control knob pressed in for 5-10 seconds, and then let it go.

 If the burner does not ignite, turn the control knob to the   position. Ventilate the room or wait for at least

1 minute before trying again. When making another ignition attempt, it may be necessary to hold the control knob for longer.

 If the burner does not ignite the second time, turn the control knob back to the   position and see “Frequently asked questions”.

Switching on during a power outage

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

 Press in the relevant control knob and turn it counterclockwise to the large flame symbol.

 Hold the control knob pressed down and light the gas at the burner with a match.

 Keep the control knob pressed down for an additional 5–10 seconds and then release it.

23

Operation

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 color is only allowed at the tip of the inner cone

Normal for natural gas

Switching off

 Turn the control knob clockwise to the   position.

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

24

Ignition safety control

Your cooktop is equipped with an ignition safety control. If a gas flame is extinguished, e.g., by food boiling over or by a draft, the gas supply is switched off. This prevents the release of gas. If you turn the control knob to the   position, the burner is ready for use again.

The ignition safety control operates independently from the electricity supply. This means that it will still work if the cooktop is used during a power outage.

Safety features

25

Cleaning and care

 Danger of burning due to hot surfaces.

The cooktop surface, grates, and burners will be hot after use.

Allow the cooktop to cool down before cleaning it.

Installation notes

Seal between cooktop and countertop

Tiled countertop

 Damage caused by incorrect installation.

Using sealant under the cooktop could result in damage to the cooktop and the countertop if the cooktop ever needs to be removed for servicing.

Do not use sealant between the cooktop and the countertop.

The sealing strip under the edge of the cooktop provides a sufficient seal for the countertop.

Grout lines   and the shaded area under the cooktop frame must be smooth and even. If they are not, the cooktop will not sit flush with the countertop and the sealing strip underneath the cooktop will not provide a good seal between the cooktop and the countertop.

Installation

Preparing the countertop

 Create the countertop cut-out as shown in the cooktop diagram. Remember to maintain the minimum safety distances (see “Installation –

 Safety distances”).

 Seal any cut surfaces on the wooden countertop with a special varnish, silicone rubber, or resin to prevent the wood from swelling as a result of moisture. The sealant must be temperature-resistant.

Ensure that the sealant does not get on the top surface of the countertop.

The sealing strip ensures that the cooktop will sit securely in the cut-out without slipping. Any gap between the trim and countertop will become smaller over time.

Installing the cooktop

 Feed the appliance power cord down through the counter cut-out.

 Place the cooktop centrally in the cut-out. When doing this make sure that the seal of the appliance sits flush with the countertop on all sides.

This is important to ensure an effective seal all round.

If during installation the seal around the frame does not sit flush with the countertop in the corners, the corner radius, maximum 3/16" ( ≤  R4/ 4 mm), can be carefully filed down to fit.

Do not use any additional sealant

(e.g. silicone).

 Connect the cooktop to the electrical power supply (see “Installation –

 Electrical connection”).

 Connect the cooktop to the gas supply (see “Installation – Gas connection”).

Securing the cooktop

 Secure the cooktop using the brackets   supplied.

Installation

Checking for proper function

 After installing the cooktop, ignite all burners to check that they are operating correctly:

- The flame must not go out on the lowest setting, or when the control is turned quickly from the highest to the lowest setting.

- On the highest setting, the flame must have a distinctive and visible core.

Gas connection

 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 appliance 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 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 appliance is not connected to an exhaust vent.

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

Arrange the gas connections in such a way that they are not heated and damaged by the operation of the appliance.

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

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

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

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.

Disconnect the appliance and the shut-off valve from the gas supply before performing a gas pressure test at a pressure of more than ½  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 ½  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 appliance must be performed according to manufacturer specifications.

40

*INSTALLATION*

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 Natural

Gas and Propane Installation Code,

CSA B149.l. 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 ½  psi (3.5 kPA) for natural and propane gas.

Make sure that the minimum gas supply pressure amounts to 6" w.c.

for natural gas and 1" w.c. for propane gas.
