Important! Installation may only be carried
out by a qualified electrician.
The minimum distances to other appliances
and units are to be observed.
Anti-shock protection must be provided by
the installation, for example drawers may
only be installed with a protective floor
directly underneath the appliance.
The cut surfaces of the worktop are to be
protected against moisture using a suitable
sealant. The sealant seals the appliance to
the work top with no gap. Do not use silicon
sealant between the appliance and the work
Avoid installing the appliance next to doors
and under windows. Otherwise hot cook-
ware may be knocked off the rings when
doors and windows are opened.
Caution! Warning! Risk of injury
from electrical current.
• The electrical mains terminal is live.
• Make electrical mains terminal free of volt-
• Follow connection schematic.
• Observe electrical safety rules.
• Ensure anti-shock protection by installing
• The appliance must be connected to the
electrical supply by a qualified electrician.
• Loose and inappropriate plug and socket
connections can make the terminal over-
• Have the clamping connections correctly
installed by a qualified electrician.
• Use strain relief clamp on cable.
Caution! The surface temperature
exceeds 95°C. To avoid a hazard,
underbench access must be restric-
Before connecting, check that the nominal
voltage of the appliance, that is the voltage
stated on the rating plate, corresponds to the
available supply voltage. Also check the
power rating of the appliance and ensure that
the wire is suitably sized in accordance with
local wiring rules to suit the appliance power
rating. The rating plate is located on the lower
casing of the hob. The heating element volt-
age is AC230V~. The appliance also works
perfectly on networks with AC220V~ or
AC240V~. Means for disconnection must be
incorporated in the fixed wiring in accord-
ance with local wiring rules.The hob is to be
connected to the mains using a device that
allows the appliance to be disconnected
from the mains at all poles with a contact
opening width of at least 3 mm, eg.
automatic line protecting cut-out, earth leak-
age tripsorfuse. If this appliance's mains ca-
ble is damaged, it must be replaced by a
special cable (type H05BB-F Tmax 90°C; or
higher). The latter is available from the
Customer Care Department. The connection
must be carried out as shown in the diagram.
The connecting links should be fitted accord-
ing to the appropriate connection diagram.
The earth lead is connected to terminal
The earth lead must be longer than leads
carrying electric current. The cable con-
nections must be made in accordance
with regulations and the terminal screws
tightened securely. Finally, the connecting
cable is to be secured with the mains cable
cleat and the covering closed by pressing
firmly (lock into place). Before switching on
for the first time, any protective foil or stickers
must be removed from the glass ceramic
Warning! Once connected to the
mains supply check that all cooking
zones are ready for use by briefly
switching each on in turn at the
• A duplicate rating label is supplied
with this unit. For easy identification of
this unit after installation, stick it to a
readily available surface adjacent to
Sticking on the seal
• Clean the worktop around the cutout area.
• Stick the single-sided adhesive sealing
tape provided on the underside of the hob
around the outside edge ensuring that it is
not stretched. The two ends of the tape
should join in the middle of one side. After
trimming the tape (allow it to overlap by 2-3
mm), press the two ends together.
