Notices to the user
Important:
Keep this user guide with your appliance. If the
appliance is ever sold or transferred to another
person, ensure that the new owner receives the user
guide. Please become familiar with these
recommendations before installing and using your
appliance. They were written for your safety and the
safety of others.
• SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS
Your appliance is designed for standard household
use for cooking, reheating and defrosting foods. The
manufacturer declines any responsibility in the case
of inappropriate use.
The appliance is not intended to be used by
persons (including children) with reduced physical,
sensory or mental abilities, or persons lacking
experience or awareness, unless using it with the
help of a person responsible for their safety, or
under supervision and with prior instruction in its
use.
Ensure that the cookware is suitable for use in a
microwave oven.
To avoid damaging your appliance, never operate it
while empty or without the turntable.
Do not interfere with the openings on the lock on
the front of the appliance; this could cause damage
to your appliance that would require a service call.
The contents of baby bottles and baby food jars
should be shaken or stirred and their temperature
checked before consumption to avoid burns.
GB
Never heat a baby bottle with the nipple on (risk of
explosion).
Make sure children do not play with the appliance.
Do not allow children to use the microwave oven
without supervision, unless appropriate instructions
have been given so that the child can use the oven
safely and understands the dangers of incorrect
operation.
Always use oven mitts to remove dishes from the
oven. Some dishes absorb the heat of foods and,
therefore, are very hot.
Liquids and other foods should not be heated in
sealed containers because they may explode.
It is recommended that you avoid heating eggs in
their shells and whole hard-boiled eggs in the
microwave oven because they run the risk of
explosion, even after cooking is complete.
Heating beverages in the microwave oven can
cause sudden and/or delayed splattering of boiling
liquid, so precautions must be taken when handling
their containers.
In the case of small quantities (a sausage, a
croissant, etc.) place a glass of water next to the
food.
The seal and frame of the door must be regularly
examined to ensure that they have not deteriorated.
If these areas are damaged, discontinue use of the
appliance and have a specialised technician check
it.
Excessive cooking times may dry out foods and
carbonise them. To avoid such incidents, never use
the same times recommended for cooking in a
traditional oven.
While heating food items in plastic or paper
containers, monitor the microwave’s contents for
there is a risk of spontaneous combustion.
If smoke appears, stop or unplug the oven and
leave the door closed to smother any flames that
may appear.
For the microwave and microwave + fan heating
functions, the use of metallic cookware, forks,
spoons, knives or metal staples or fasteners for
frozen foods is not recommended.

• OPERATING PRINCIPLE
• PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT
The microwaves used for cooking are electromagnetic waves. They are commonly found in our
environment in the form of radio-electric waves,
light or infrared rays.
Their frequency is in the 2450 MHz range.
Their behaviour:
• They are reflected by metals.
• They travel through all other materials.
• They are absorbed by water, fat and sugar
molecules.
This appliance’s packing materials are recyclable.
Recycle them and play a role in protecting the
environment by disposing of them in municipal
containers provided for this purpose.
When food is exposed to microwaves, its molecules
begin moving rapidly, which causes heating.
The penetration depth of waves into the food is
approximately 2.5 cm; if the food is thicker, the core
of the food will be cooked by conduction, as in
traditional cooking.
It is valuable to note that the microwaves trigger
within the food a simple thermal phenomenon and
that they are not harmful to one’s health.
Fig.01
24
Your appliance also contains various
recyclable materials. Thus it is stamped
with this logo to indicate to you that used
appliances should be mixed with other
waste. The recycling of appliances
organised by your manufacturer will take
place under the best conditions, in compliance with
European directive 2002/96/CE concerning electrical
and electronic equipment waste. Consult your city
hall or your retailer to find the drop-off points for
used appliances that is nearest to your home. We
thank you for your help in protecting the
environment.
Installing your appliance
• BEFORE HOOK-UP
Warning:
Ensure that your appliance has not suffered
any damage during transport (deformed seal or
door, etc...). If you see any kind of damage,
before doing anything else, contact your retailer.
In order to easily locate the reference information
for your appliance, we recommend that you note
these data on the “After-Sales Service
Department and Customer Relations” page.
• ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
Ensure that:
- The electrical installation has sufficient voltage.
- The electrical wires are in good condition.
- The dia meter of the wires complies with the
installation requirements.
- Your electrical installation is equipped with 16ampere thermal-sensitive protection.
In case of doubt, consult your electrician-installer.
The electrical connections are made before the
appliance is installed in its housing.
In the case of connections with an electric
receptacle, it must remain accessible after
installation of the appliance.
GB
The oven’s neutral conductor (blue wire) must be
connected to the network’s neutral conductor.
In your electrical installation, allow for a useraccessible device that must be able to separate the
appliance from the main power supply and whose
contact opening is at least 3 mm above all the
terminals.
If the power cable is damaged, it should be
replaced by the manufacturer, its after-sales service
department or by a qua lified person to avoid
danger.
Warning:
We cannot be held responsible for any
accident resulting from an inexistent, defective
or incorrect ground lead.
If the oven malfunctions in any way, unplug the
appliance or remove the relevant fuse at the
oven’s connection lead-in.
Electrical safety must be provided by a correct
build-in. During installation and maintenance
operations, the appliance must be unplugged from
the electrical grid; fuses must be cut off or removed.
The oven must be connected with a power cable
(standardized) with three 1.5 mm2 conductors (1 ph
+ 1 N + ground) that must be connected to a
monophase 220-240 V network via a CEI 60083
standardised receptacle (1 ph + 1 N + ground lead)
or in accordance with installation rules. The safety
wire (green-yellow) is connected to the appliance’s
terminal
and must be connected to the ground
lead of the electrical set-up.

out and dried off before searing with the PIZZA
function.
l
Keep an eye on the food’s coloring, just as you
would with a traditional oven.
l
Protect your hands when taking out the dish
because it can be extremely hot.
l
Do not serve stuffed foods (apple pastry for
example) too quickly because they can be warm
on the surface whereas the filling is extremely
hot.
l
Cooking or reheating of eggs with the PIZZA
function is prohibited.
