If no operations are carried out for a period of 2
minutes, after the residual heat indicator lights turn
off and the fan stops (if present), the appliance
automatically switches to the “off mode”.
The appliance resumes the operating mode once the
ON/OFF button is pressed.
Start-up and use
! The glue applied on the gaskets leaves traces of
grease on the glass. Before using the appliance, we
recommend you remove these with a special nonabrasive cleaning product. During the first few hours
of use there may be a smell of rubber which will
disappear very quickly.
! A few seconds after the hob is connected to the
electricity supply, a buzzer will sound. The hob may
now be switched on.
Types of noise during normal hob operation:
• Buzz: due to the vibration of the metallic parts
that make up the induction element and the pot; it
is generated by the electromagnetic field required
for heating and increases as the power of the
induction element increases.
• Soft whistle: heard when the pot placed on the
heating zone is empty; the noise disappears once
food or water is placed into the pot.
• Crackle: produced by the vibration of materials
on the bottom of the pot due to the flow of
parasitic currents caused by electromagnetic
fields (induction); can be more or less intense
depending on the material making up the bottom
of the pot, and decreases as the pot dimensions
• Loud whistle: heard when two induction
elements of the same group function
simultaneously at maximum power and/or when
the booster function is set on the larger element
while the other is auto-adjusted. Noise is reduced
by decreasing the power level of the autoadjusted induction element; pot bottom layers
made of different kinds of materials are among
the main causes of this noise.
• Fan noise: a fan is necessary to ensure the hob
functions correctly and to safeguard the electronic
unit from possible overheating. The fan functions
at maximum power when the large induction
element is at maximum power or when the booster
function is on; in all other cases, it works at
average power depending on the temperature
detected. Furthermore, the fan may continue to
work even after switching the hob off, if the
temperature detected is high.
The types of noise listed above are due to induction
technology and are not necessarily operational

Practical advice on using the appliance
Overheating protection
! Use cookware made from materials which are compatible
with the induction principle (ferromagnetic material). We
especially recommend pans made from: cast iron,
coated steel or special stainless steel adapted for
induction. Use a magnet to test the compatibility of the

automatically and
F appears on the display, followed by a
flashing number. When the temperature has reached a
suitable level, this message disappears and the hob may
be used again.
Safety switch
The appliance has a safety switch which automatically
switches the cooking zones off after they have been in
operation for a certain amount of time at a particular
power level. When the safety switch has been triggered,
0 ”.
the display shows “0
For example: the rear right-hand hotplate is set to 5 and
will switch off after 7 and a half hours of continuous
operation, while the front left-hand hotplate is set to 2 and
will switch off after 9 and a half hours.
• Always use pans with a diameter which is large enough
to cover the hotplate fully, in order to use all the
available heat.
• Make sure that the base of the cookware is always
clean and dry, in order to fully utilise and extend the life
of both the cooking zones and the cookware.
• Avoid using the same cookware which has been used
on gas burners: the heat concentration on gas burners
may distort the base of the pan, causing it not to
adhere correctly.
Safety devices
Pan sensor
Each cooking zone is equipped with a pan sensor device.
The hotplate only emits heat when a pan with suitable
measurements for the cooking zone is placed on it. If
the power level indicator display flashes, this may be
• An incompatible pan
This can also indicate several irregularities:
• An object (a pan, cutlery, etc.) has been placed on the
control panel for more than 10 seconds.
• Something has been spilt on the control panel.
• A button has been pressed for too long. All of the
above situations may cause the buzzer to sound.
Remove the cause of the malfunction to stop the
buzzer. If the cause of the problem is not removed, the
buzzer will keep sounding and the hob will switch off.

the appliance from the electricity mains immediately to
avoid electric shock, and contact a Service Centre.
• Ensure that power supply cables of other electrical
appliances do not come into contact with the hot parts of
the hob.
• Remember that the cooking zones remain relatively hot
for at least thirty minutes after they have been switched
off. An indicator light provides a warning when residual
heat is present (see Start-up and use).
• Keep any object which could melt away from the hob, for
example plastic and aluminium objects, or products with
a high sugar content. Be especially careful when using
plastic film and aluminium foil or packaging: if placed on
surfaces which are still hot, they may cause serious
damage to the hob.
• Always make sure that pan handles are turned towards
the centre of the hob in order to avoid accidental burns.
• When unplugging the appliance, always pull the plug
from the mains socket; do not pull on the cable.
• Never perform any cleaning or maintenance work without

Care and maintenance
Switching the appliance off
Disconnect your appliance from the electricity
supply before carrying out any work on it.
Cleaning the appliance
! Do not use abrasive or corrosive detergents (for
example, products in spray cans for cleaning
barbecues and ovens), stain removers, anti-rust
products, powder detergents or sponges with
abrasive surfaces: these may scratch the surface
beyond repair.
! Never use steam cleaners or pressure cleaners on

! Some hobs have an aluminium frame which is
similar to stainless steel. Do not use any cleaning or
degreasing products which are not suitable for use
with aluminium.
the appliance.
Disassembling the hob
• It is usually sufficient simply to wash the hob
using a damp sponge and dry it with absorbent
kitchen towel.
If it is necessary to disassemble the hob:
1. Loosen the screws fixing the alignment springs on
each side.
2. Loosen the screws holding the fixing hooks in
each corner.
3. Take the hob out of its installation cavity.
• If the hob is particularly dirty, rub it with a special
glass ceramic cleaning product, then rinse well
and dry thoroughly.
• To remove more stubborn dirt, use the scraper
provided. Remove spills as soon as possible,
without waiting for the appliance to cool, to avoid
residues forming crusty deposits. You can obtain
excellent results by using a rust-proof steel wire
sponge - specifically designed for glass ceramic
surfaces - soaked in soapy water.
! The scraper provided is sharp: be careful when
using it.
• If any plastic or sugary substances are
accidentally melted on the hob, remove them
immediately with the scraper, while the surface is
still hot.
• Once it is clean, the hob may be treated with a
special protective maintenance product: the
invisible film left by this product protects the
surface from drips during cooking. This
maintenance task should be carried out while the
appliance is warm (not hot) or cold.
• Always remember to rinse the appliance well with
clean water and dry it thoroughly: residues can
become encrusted during subsequent cooking
! Do not attempt to repair the appliance yourself. If
the appliance breaks down, contact a Service
• When disposing of packaging material: observe local
legislation so that the packaging may be reused.
• The European Directive 2002/96/EC relating to Waste
Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) states that
household appliances should not be disposed of using the
normal solid urban waste cycle. Exhausted appliances
should be collected separately in order to optimise the cost
of re-using and recycling the materials inside the machine,
while preventing potential damage to the atmosphere and
to public health. The crossed-out dustbin is marked on all
products to remind the owner of their obligations regarding
separated waste collection. For further information relating
to the correct disposal of exhausted household appliances,
owners may contact the public service provided or their
local dealer.
