After the cooking zone is switched off, the residual heat indicator "H" remains on or flashes, alternating with "0" until the hob
temperature falls to an acceptable safety level.
Important: The hob's safety features include an automatic switching off function. Prolonged use of the same heat setting causes switching off of
the cooking zone (e.g. after approx. 1 hour at maximum heat setting, the cooking zone switches off).
BEFORE USING THE GLASS-CERAMIC COOKTOP
CAUTION: This cooktop complies with all applicable safety
and electromagnetic compatibility legislation.
However, persons with pacemaker should keep at a safe
distance from the appliance. This is because it is not possible
to guarantee that all pacemakers on the market comply with
the standards in compliance with which this appliance was
tested so it is not possible to provide an absolute guarantee of
the absence of potentially harmful interference.
To make the most of your new appliance, please read the user
instructions carefully and keep them handy for future
consultation.
INSTALLATION
Cooktop
The cooktop must be set into a worktop the thickness of
which must be between 30 mm and 50 mm
For the distance between the underside of the glass-
ceramic cooktop and the cupboard or separating panel
beneath it, observe the dimensions given in figure 1.
If the cooktop is to be installed next to a column unit, leave
a distance of at least 100 mm from the edge of the
cooktop.
Cut an opening in the worktop of the dimensions shown in the
Product Description Sheet supplied separately.
Apply the supplied gasket to the cooktop (unless it has already
been fitted), after having cleaned the surface.
Important
In order to prevent the electronic circuits from overheating with
consequent damage, we recommend the following:
Do not install the cooktop near a dishwasher or washing
machine, so that the electronic circuits do not come into
contact with steam or moisture, which could damage
them.
If an oven (manufactured by us) is to be installed under the cooktop,
Fast boil
ensure it is equipped with a cooling system and observe the
distances given in figure 1a. There must be nothing between the
Child safety
cooktop and the oven (cross rails, panels, brackets, etc.).
If the oven has a self-cleaning function (pyrolysis), do not use the
Timer
cooktop whilst this function is selected.
If the temperature of the electronic circuits exceeds the maximum
permitted value, the cooktop will switch off automatically; in this
case, wait for a few minutes until the internal temperature of the
electronic circuits reaches a tolerable level, at which point it will be
possible to switch the cooktop on again.
Switch the cooktop off after use.
Assembly
The cooktop must be secured
by means of brackets.
Use the supplied brackets and
screws.
Fit the hob in the
worktop.
Position the brackets (A)
as shown in the figure, in
accordance with the
thickness of the worktop.
Secure the screws (B) in
holes (C).
HOB INSTRUCTIONS
Electrical connections
The electrical connection must be made before connecting the
appliance power cable to the electricity supply. The appliance must
be installed by a qualified electrician who is fully aware of statutory
safety and installation regulations. Specifically, installation must be
carried out in compliance with the regulations of the local electricity
company. Make sure that the voltage shown on the rating plate is the
same as the power supply voltage in your home. The appliance must
be earthed in compliance with the provisions of law: use exclusively
conductors (including the earth conductor) of the appropriate size.
The manufacturer declines all liability for injury to persons or animals
and for damage to property resulting from failure to observe the
above regulations. For the electrical connection use an H05 RR-F
type cable as indicated in the table below:
Power supply voltage
:
Conductors
230V ~ +
230-240V ~ +
230V 3 ~ +
400V 3N ~ +
400V 2N ~ +
If the cooktop is not supplied with a power cable already
fitted, see the diagram on the Product Description Sheet for
connection to the mains electricity supply.
The appliance must be connected to the electricity supply via an
all-pole disconnect switch with minimum contact gap of 3 mm.
Caution: the power supply cable must be long enough to allow the
cooktop to be removed from the worktop and must be positioned
so as to avoid damage or overheating caused by contact with the
base.
Connecting to the terminal board
Note: the yellow/green earth wire must be connected to the
terminal with the symbol
wires.
Place the glass-ceramic hob on a soft cloth to prevent it from
being scratched during the installation procedure (see Fig. 2).
Unscrew cover (A) fixed to the underside of the cooktop.
Remove an approximate length of 70 mm of the power cable
A
insulation.
C

insert the power cable into cable clamp (B) and connect the wires
to terminal board (C) as shown in the wiring diagram alongside
B
the terminal board.
Secure the power cable with cable clamp (B).
Close the terminal board with cover (A)(see Fig. 3).
