Introduction
Your new hob is guaranteed* and will give lasting service. This guarantee is only applicable if the appliance has been
installed in accordance with the installation instructions detailed in this booklet.
To help make best use of your cooking equipment, please read this booklet carefully.
The hob is designed specifically for domestic use and responsibility will not be accepted for use in any other installation.
When first using the hob, ensure that the room is well ventilated (eg. open a window or use an extractor fan) and that
persons who may be sensitive to the odour avoid any fumes. it is suggested that any pets be removed from the room
until the odour has ceased. This odour is due to temporary finish on elements.
Before using the hotplates for the first time, we recommend you heat them at maximum temperature for approximately 4
minutes (without pans). During this initial stage, their protective coating hardens and reaches its maximum resistance.
* The guarantee is subject to the provisions that the appliance:
(a) Has been used solely in accordance with this booklet.
(b) Has been properly connected to a suitable supply voltage as stated on the rating plate, attached to the
appliance.
(c) Has not been subjected to misuse or accident or been modified or repaired by any person other than the
manufacturers authorised employee or agent.
(d) Has been correctly installed.
This appliance conforms with the following European Economic Community directives
-
73/23/EEC of 19/02/73 (Low Voltage) and subsequent modifications.
89/336/EEC of 03/05/89 (Electromagnetic Compatibility) and subsequent modifications.
93/68/EEC of 22/07/93 and subsequent modifications.

For Your Safety
When used properly your appliance is completely safe but as with any electrical product there are certain
precautions that must be observed.
PLEASE READ THE BELOW PRECAUTIONS BEFORE USING YOUR APPLIANCE.
To maintain the efficiency and safety of this appliance, we recommend you do the following:
- only call the Service Centres authorised by the manufacturer.
- always use genuine spare parts.
NEVER:
- attempt to install or repair the appliance without the
assistance of qualified personnel.
- store items above the appliance that children may attempt
to reach.
- heat up unopened food containers, as pressure can build
up causing the container to burst.
- use the appliance to heat up anything other than food.
- use the appliance as a room heater.
- dry any items on the hob.
- install the appliance next to curtains or other soft furnishings.
- allow children to play with or tamper with the controls.
- leave children unsupervised where cooking appliances are
installed as all the cooking surfaces get hot during and after
use.
- store chemicals, foodstuffs or pressurised containers in or
on the appliance, or in cabinets immediately above or next
to the appliance.
- use flammable or plastic items on or near the hob.
- use adapters, multiple sockets and/or extension leads.
- fill a deep fat frying pan more than 1/3 full of oil, or use a lid.
DO NOT LEAVE UNATTENDED WHILE COOKING.
- fry too much food at a time, especially frozen food. This
only lowers the temperature or the oil or fat too much, resulting
in greasy food.
- pull on the appliance or the supply cable to unplug it from
the electrical outlet.
- allow power cables of other appliances to come into contact
with hot parts of this appliance.
- expose the appliance to atmospheric agents, such as
rain or sunlight.
- operate the appliance with wet hands.
- operate the appliance when barefoot.
- allow anyone to sit or stand on any part of the appliance.
- use misshapen pans which may be unstable.
- use fish kettles or large preserving pans across two
hotplates.
- leave anything on the hob surface when unattended and
not in use.
ALWAYS:
- make sure you remove all packaging and dispose of safely.
- check the soundness of the appliance after it has been
unpacked.
- make sure you understand the controls before using the
appliance.
- keep children away from the appliance during use.
- take care to avoid heat/steam burns when operating the
controls.
- make sure the controls are turned off when you have finished
cooking and when not in use.
- disconnect from the power supply, and allow to cool, before
cleaning or performing maintenance.
- refer servicing to a qualified appliance service engineer.
- keep the hob clean as a build up of grease or fat from
cooking can cause a fire.
- follow the basic principles of food handling and hygiene to
prevent the possibility of bacterial growth.
- dry food thoroughly before frying and lower it slowly into the
hot oil or fat. Frozen food in particular, will cause frothing and
spitting if added too quickly.
- keep outside of pans clean and free from streaks of oil or
fat.
- place pans centrally over the hotplates making sure
handles are kept away from the edge of the hob and cannot
be heated by other hotplates/pans.
- keep any ventilation slots clear of obstructions.
SAFETY ADVICE
IMPORTANT - As with any cooking appliance there could be some fire risk attached to the heating of oil, particularly for
deep fat frying. Cooking utensils containing oil must not be left unattended (eg. to answer the telephone) on or in close
proximity to the cooking areas.
IN THE EVENT OF A CHIP PAN OR ANY OTHER PAN FIRE:
1. Turn off the hotplates.
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 60 minutes before moving 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 is likely to tip the pan
over. Never use water to extinguish oil or fat fires.

Practical Advice
Choice of utensils:
Every Electric Hob deserves the right choice of utensils. We
recommend for optimum performance the use of good quality
utensils.
PANS SHOULD NOT:
• Be concave (bowed in).
• Be convex (bowed out).
• Be rimmed.
• Be deeply ridged.
BUT SHOULD BE ESSENTIALLY FLAT
Always

Never
Use good quality flat-based cookware on all electric heat
sources.
Place pans centrally on the hotplate.
Ensure pans have clean, dry bases before use.
Ensure pans match the size of the heating area.
Remember good quality pans retain heat well, so
generally only a low or medium heat is necessary.
Ensure pan handles are positioned safely and away
from heat sources.
Lift pans, do not drag.
Use pan lids, except when frying.
Deal with spillage immediately, but with care.

Cook food directly on the hotplate.
Drag or slide utensils across the hotplate.
Place large preserving pans or fish kettles across two
hotplates.
Place plastic vessels or utensils on a hot hob.
Use the hob as an area for storage.
Care and Cleaning
The Hotplates
Clean with a cloth wrung out in warm water. Then rub a litlle
cooking oil into the hotplates while they are still warm to
condition the surface. Ensure care is taken as the hotplates
will be warm.
Before cleaning or performing maintenance on your hob,
disconnect it from the power supply. Check that all controls
are in the OFF position before reconnecting.
Clean spills immediately.
Enamelled, Stainless Steel and Glass parts
Wipe with a cloth wrung out in warm soapy water followed
by a wipe with a cloth wrung out in clean water and then
dry with a soft clean cloth.
NEVER USE: Washing powder, harch abrasive,
scouring pads, aerosol cleaners or oven chemical
clearners of any kind.
Cleaning materials to avoid
• Household abrasive powders, eg. Vim.
• Oven chemical cleaners, aerosols and oven pads Caustic cleaners such as these will etch the surface and
attack the metal frame.
• Bath and sink cleaners may mark the surface.
Control Knobs
Wipe over the knobs with a soft cloth wrung out in warm
soapy water or mild non-abrasive. Then, after wiping with a
cloth wrung out in clear water, dry with a soft clean cloth.
Painted Metal Surround Trim
Wipe over with a cloth wrung out in warm soapy water
only. DO NOT USE ABRASIVES.
Troubleshooting
Before calling service for assistance, check through the
following list, there may be nothing wrong.
If, despite all of these checks, the hob does not function
properly and problem persists, call Hotpoint Service (see
KEY CONTACTS, back page), informing them of:
- The type of problem.
- The abbreviation used to identify the model (Mod. ...) as
indicated on the warranty.
Nothing works.
Check to make sure that:
• the mains wall switch is switched on.
IMPORTANT:
Never call upon technicians not authorized by the
manufacturer, and refuse to accept spare parts that are not
original.
Hotplates are slow to boil or will not simmer.
Check to make sure that:
• Your pans conform with the recommendations detailed
in this book.
