SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should be followed, including
the following:
s
Use this appliance only for its intended use
as described in this manual.
s
Do not attempt to repair or replace any
part of your cooktop unless it is specifically
recommended in this manual. All other
servicing should be referred to a qualified
technician.

Before performing any service, disconnect
the cooktop power supply at the household
distribution panel by removing the fuse or
switching off the circuit breaker.
s
Be sure your appliance is properly installed
and grounded by a qualified technician in
accordance with the provided installation
instructions.
s
Have the installer show you the location of
the circuit breaker or fuse. Mark it for easy
reference.

Do not leave children alone—children
should not be left alone or unattended
in an area where an appliance is in use.
They should never be allowed to sit or
stand on any part of the appliance.

Teach children not to play with the
controls or any other part of the cooktop.

hang on the cooktop.
CAUTION:

Always keep dishtowels, dish cloths, pot
holders and other linens a safe distance
away from your cooktop.

Always keep wooden and plastic utensils
and canned food a safe distance away from
your cooktop. They may become hot and

garments while using the appliance.
Flammable material could be ignited if
brought in contact with hot surface units
and may cause severe burns.

pick up a flaming pan. Turn the controls
off. Smother a flaming pan on a surface
unit by covering the pan completely with
a well-fitting lid, cookie sheet or flat tray.
Use a multi-purpose dry chemical or
foam-type extinguisher.

Flaming grease outside a pan can be
put out by covering with baking soda or,
if available, by using a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.

When preparing flaming foods under the
hood, turn the fan on.
