Instruction Manual of IND60T Induction Hob
Model: IND60T
IM IND60T_20100202
Dear Customer:
Thank you for purchasing the CNA induction hob. We hope it will give many years of good
Please read this instruction manual carefully before using the hob and keep it in a safe
place for future reference.
z Product Introduction
The IND60T induction hob caters for all kind of cooking, with its
electromagnetic cooking zones, and its micro-computerised controls and multi-functions,
making it the ideal choice for today's family.
The induction hob is extremely user-friendly, durable and safe.
z Working Principle
The induction hob comprises a coil, a hotplate made of ferromagnetic material and a
control system. Electrical current generates a powerful magnetic field through the coil. This
produces a large number of vortices which in turn generate heat which is then transmitted
through the cooking zone to the cooking vessel.
z Safety
This hob was specially designed for domestic use. In its constant search to improve its
products, CNA reserves the right to modify any technical,
programme or aesthetic
aspects of the appliance at any time.
1. Protection from over-heating
A sensor monitors the temperature in the cooking zones. When the temperature exceeds a
safe level, the cooking zone is automatically switched off.
2. Detection of small or non-magnetic items
When a unsuitable size or non-magnetic pan (e.g. aluminium), or some other small item
(e.g. knife, fork, key) has been left on the hob, the hob goes automatically on to standby
a minute later.
3. Residual heat indicator
When the hob has been operating for some time,there will be some residual heat. The
letter “H” appears to warn you that it is too hot to touch the surface.
4. Auto shut down
Another safety feature of the induction hob is auto shutdown. This occurs whenever you
forget to switch off a cooking zone.
The default shutdown times are shown in the table below:
Power level
The heating zone shut down automatically after
8 hours
4 hours
2 hours
When the pan is removed from the cooking zone, it stops heating immediately and
switches itself off after the buzzer has sounded for one minute.
Anyone who has been fitted with a heart pacemaker should co nsult a doctor before using
the induction hob. This hob complies with all current standards on electro-magnetic safety
and in keeping with the legal requirements 89/336/CE & Directives
1. Cut a hole in the worktop of the dimension shown in the diagram below. A minimum of
50 mm space should be left around the hole. The worktop should be at least 30 mm thick
and made of heat-resistant material.

2. It is essential that the i nduction hob is well ventilated and that the air intake and exit are
not blocked.
Make sure the hob is correctly installed as shown in Figure(2).

For safety, the gap between the hob and any cupboard above it should be at least 750 mm.
3. Fix the hob to the worktop using the four brackets on the base of the hob. The position of
the brackets can be adjusted according to the thickness of the top.
(1) The induction hob must be installed by a properly qualified person.
Never try to install the appliance yourself.
(2) The induction hob must not be installed above refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers or
tumble dryers.
(3) The induction hob should be installed so that optimum radiation of heat is possible.
(4) The wall and the area above the hob should be able to withstand heat.
(5) To avoid any damage, the sandwich layer and adhesive should be heat-resistant.
Connection to power supply
The socket should be connected in compliance with the relevant standard, to an
omnipolar circuit breaker. 30 AMP minimum supply
The method of connection is shown in Figure 3.
(1)If the cable is damaged or needs replacing, this should be done by an after-sales
technician using the proper tools, so as to avoid any accidents.
(2)If the appliance is being connected directly to the mains supply , an omnipolar circuit
breaker must be installed with a minimum gap of 3 mm between the contacts.
(3)The installer must ensure that the correct electrical connection has been made and that
it complies with safety regulations.
(4)The cable must not be bent or compressed.
(5)The cable must be checked regularly and only replaced by a properly qualified person.
Means for all-pole disconnection must be incorporated in the fixed wiring in
accordance with the wiring rules

Instructions for Use
Preparation before using:
When the power is switched on, the buzzer will sound once and all the indicators will come
on for one second and then go out. The hob is now in standby mode.Place the pan in the
centre of the cooking zone.
Operating instructions
When the ON/OFF key is pressed, all the indicators show "-". Select the power level by
pressing the "+" or "-" key for the relevant hotplate. To begin with the indicator shows
"5".Adjust up or down by pressing the "+" or "-" key .If you press the "+" and "-" keys
simultaneously,the power setting returns to "0" and all the cooking zone switches off.See
the table on Page 6 for the power specific to each cooking zone.
When the ON/OFF key is pressed, the induction hob returns to standby mode if no other
operation is carried out within one minute.
Timing function
Press the timing key and the indicator will start flashing. Then set the time for between 1
and 99 minutes, by pressing the "+" an d "-" keys. Pressing the "+" key once increases the
time by one minute; pressing the "-" key once decreases the time by one minute. When the
set time exceeds 99 minutes, it will automatically return to "0" minutes. If the "-" and "+"
keys are pressed simultaneously, the indicator will display"0".
Timer confirmation
(1) Select the power level of the cooking zone and then press the "Timer" key. The timer
can now be set.
(2) When the timing indicator has been flashing for 5 seconds, the set time will be
automatically confirmed.
(3). After selecting a set time, confirm by pressing the "Timer" key.
Timer cancellation
After setting the time again, hold down the "Timer" key for 5 seconds. This will cancel the
timer and the indicator will revert to "0".
Safety mode
To ensure the safety of children, the induction hob is fitted with an interlock device.
To lock: hold down the "Interlock" ; the hob then goes into "Interlock" mode, the timer
shows "LO " and the rest of the keys are disabled except the "ON/OFF"key.
Unlocking : Hold down the "Interlock" key for 2 seconds and the hob will return to normal

You may have a number of different cooking vessels
1. This induction hob can identify a variety of cooking vessels, which you can test by one
of the following methods:
Place the vessel on the cooking zone. If the corresponding cooking zone displays a power
level, then the vessel is suitable. If "U" flashes, then the vessel is not suitable
2. Hold a magnet to the vessel. If the magnet is attracted to the vessel, it is suitable for use
with the induction hob.
The base of the vessel must contain magnetic material. It mu st have a flat bottom with a
diameter of more than 12 cm.
