cooling / Venting fan
your built-in appliance is fitted with a cooling fan .
this prevents your kitchen cabinet from overheating
and reduces the condensation inside the oven . It will
operate whenever you are using your oven or grill and
will blow warm air across the top of the oven door .
In some appliances the cooling fan may continue to
operate after the appliance is turned off . It will switch
off by itself once oven is cool
Excess condensation may fog the oven door . this may
happen when you are cooking large quantities of food
from a cold start . you can minimize condensation by:
• K eeping the amount of water used whilst cooking
to a minimum .
• M aking sure that the oven door is firmly closed.
• B aking custard in a baking dish that is slightly
smaller than the water container .
• C ooking casseroles with the lid on.
NOTE: If you are using water in cooking, this will turn to
steam and may condense outside your appliance. This
is not a problem or fault with your oven.
