Safety

Cooker technology is constantly improving. The way you use your new cooker may be different from the way
you used your old one. Please read the whole instruction book before using your new cooker. This cooker is
intended for normal domestic use. Take care of the instruction book which will be needed by the new owner if the
cooker is sold or passed on to someone else. Do not hesitate to contact us with questions or viewpoints about the
cooker and its use.

Children and the cooker
Children are naturally curious and interested in most
things, including the cooker. From a safety point of
view, we would like to emphasis the following for
those with children at home:
There should be worktops on both sides of the
cooker extending at least 40 cm to left and to right.
Alternatively the cooker can be installed with a wall or
a tall kitchen unit on one side and a worktop on the
other side. The

Children should be allowed to help with cooking,
but teach them that pans, hotplates and ovens become
hot and retain their heat for some time after use.
TOUCHING THESE CAN CAUSE BURNS
Installation
Work on the cooker must be carried out by a qualified
electrician. Work performed by unqualified persons
can damage the cooker, and may also lead to personal
injury and/or damage to property.
The cooker is heavy. Certain edges and corners
which will not normally be exposed may be sharp. Use
gloves when moving the cooker.

cooker from tipping if subjected to an abnormal

When using the cooker
Never leave the cooker unattended while deep frying,
or when using it for melting fats, paraffin wax or other
flammable substances. In the event of a fire, turn off
all the controls and turn off the cooker hood fan.

, never use water.
PLEASE READ THESE TEXTS CAREFULLY
On the hob, use only pans which are intended for use
on hotplates. Use only ovenproof dishes and
containers in the oven.
Check that the cooker is switched off when not in
use. All controls should be turned off.
Warning! Alcohol and other liquids that can
form explosive gases, or other substances that
could cause a fire or explosion, must not be
used in the oven.
Great care must be taken when using such liquids and
substances on the hob. For example, when preparing
food on the hob with flaming brandy, or any other type
of alcohol, there is always a risk that fat particles in the
hob fan may catch fire with serious consequences.
Flames and burning fat spills can also cause personal
injury.
Cleaning
Keep the ceramic hob and oven clean. Fat and spill-
ages give off smoke and odours when heated, and, at
worst, can cause fires.
Maintenance and service
Turn all controls off before changing any bulbs.
Service and repairs should be carried out by a
service company approved by the supplier. Use only
spare parts supplied by such companies.
At the end of the cooker's life
Help prevent accidents when the cooker has reached
the end of its useful life. Make sure first that the lead is
completely disconnected from the electrical supply
(pull out the plug, or have the cooker safely discon-
nected from the wall), then cut the electrical lead at the
point where it enters the cooker. Make sure that the
door catch/door catches have been deactivated.
