    They contain important notes on in- stallation, safety, use and maintenance. Miele cannot be held liable for damage caused by non-compliance with these instructions. Keep these instructions in a safe place and ensure that new users...
  • Page 5 Warning and Safety instructions Correct application  This hob is intended for domestic use and use in other similar en- vironments.  This hob is not intended for outdoor use.  It is intended for domestic use only to cook food and keep it warm.
  • Page 6 Warning and Safety instructions Safety with children  Children under 8 years of age must be kept away from the hob unless they are constantly supervised.  Children 8 years and older may only use the hob unsupervised if they have been shown how to use it in a safe way and can recognise and understand the consequences of incorrect operation.
  • Page 7  Unauthorised installation, maintenance and repairs can cause considerable danger for the user. Installation, maintenance and re- pairs must only be carried out by a Miele authorised technician.  Do not use a damaged appliance. It could be dangerous. Check the hob for visible signs of damage.
  • Page 8 Warning and Safety instructions  Miele can only guarantee the safety of the appliance when genu- ine original Miele replacement parts are used. Faulty components must only be replaced by Miele spare parts.  The hob is not intended for use with an external timer switch or a remote control system.
  • Page 9 Warning and Safety instructions Correct use  The hob gets hot when in use and remains hot for a while after be- ing switched off. There is a danger of burning until the residual heat indicators go out.  Oil and fat can overheat and catch fire. Do not leave the hob unat- tended when cooking with oil and fat.
  • Page 10 Warning and Safety instructions  You could burn yourself on the hot hob. Protect your hands with heat-resistant pot holders or gloves when handling hot pots and pans. Do not let them get wet or damp, as this causes heat to trans- fer through the material more quickly with the risk of scalding or burning yourself.
  • Page 11 Warning and Safety instructions  Induction heating works extremely quickly and so the base of the pan could heat up to the temperature at which oil or fat self-ignites within a very short time. Do not leave the hob unattended whilst it is being used.
  • Page 12 Warning and Safety instructions  Where several CombiSets are installed side by side: Hot objects can damage the seal of the cover strip between the ap- pliances. Do not place hot pans near or on the cover strip.
  • Page 13: Cleaning And Care

    Warning and Safety instructions Cleaning and care  Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this hob. The steam could reach electrical components and cause a short cir- cuit.  If the hob is built in over a pyrolitic oven, the hob should not be used whilst the pyrolitic process is being carried out, as this could trigger the overheating protection mechanism on the hob (see relev- ant section).
