limit access to the under-bench section of the cooktop.
- The appliance must be installed and put into operation by an authorized technician under the conditions provided by the manufacturer in this manual. The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for any damage that might occur due to faulty installation.
- Damage can occur to bench tops if pots and pans are allowed to overlap the bench top. This can result in heat being transferred to the bench top. Ensure that correct sized pots & pans are used. Cast iron and cast aluminum cookware with damaged bases may scratch the cooktop surface if they are dragged across it. Pans should be lifted on and off the cooktop surface and not dragged. Cooking zones should not be switched on without cookware placed on it. Also, the cookware should not be empty for any length of time.

|Rated Voltage:||220-240Vac 50Hz|
This information can be found on the rating plate (identification plate) affixed to the underside of the appliance.
|Relevant Sizes:||WIDTH (mm)||LENGTH (mm)||HEIGHT (mm)|
Cut out the work surface according to the sizes shown in the image below.
Ensure that there is a minimum of 50mm of space around the cutout.
The thickness of the bench should be at least 30mm. Please select heat-resistant and insulated bench materials (Wood and similar fibrous or hygroscopic materials should not be used as the bench material unless impregnated) to avoid the electrical shock and larger deformation caused by heat radiation from the hotplate.
Note: The safety distance between the sides of the hob and the inner surfaces of the worktop should be at least 3mm.
|L (mm)||W (mm)||H (mm)||D (mm)||A (mm)||B (mm)||X (mm)|
Important: Ensure that the cooktop is well ventilated and that the air inlet and outlet are not blocked.
|50 min.||20 min.||Air inlet||Air outlet (5mm)|
Note: The safety distance between the cooktop and cupboard should be at least 600 mm.
In order to avoid accidentally touching the hot underside of the cooktop, or getting an unexpected electric shock, it is necessary to put a wooden insert, fixed by screws, at a minimum distance of 50mm from the bottom of the cooktop.
There are ventilation holes around outside of the cooktop. Ensure that these holes are not blocked by the bench when you install the cooktop.
Be aware that any glue used on the bench must be resistant to a minimum temperature of 150°C.
The rear wall, adjacent and surrounding surfaces must therefore be able to withstand a temperature of 90°C.
Before locating the fixing brackets
The unit should be placed on a stable, smooth surface (use the packaging). Do not apply force onto the controls protruding from the hob.
Fix the hob to the bench by screwing the three brackets to the bottom of the cooktop (see image) after installation.
LOCAL AUTHORITY REQUIREMENTS
Installation is only permitted by a licensed electrician and carried out according to instructions provided by the manufacturer. Incorrect installation might cause harm and damage, for which the manufacturer accepts no responsibility.
Before carrying out the connection to the power supply, the voltage rating of the appliance (stamped on the appliance identification plate) must be checked for correspondence to the available mains supply voltage, and the mains electric wiring should be capable of handling the oven’s power rating (also indicated on the identification plate). If you have any doubts, call in a qualified technician.
NOTE: For connections to the mains power supply, never use adapters, reductions or multiple power points as these may overheat and catch fire. Do not install separate timers.
After having installed the appliance, the switched outlet must always be in an accessible position. The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed if the cooktop is correctly and efficiently earthed, always ensure that the earthing is efficient; if you have any doubts call in a licensed electrician to check the system. The manufacturer declines all responsibility for damage resulting from an installation which has not been correctly earthed.
WARNING: If any damage occurs to the power cable during or after installation, it must be replaced immediately by a licensed electrician with a replacement cable from your Service Centre.
The cooktops are to be connected to a single phase 220-240Vac 50 Hz supply.
The appliance is designed for fixed connection to the mains. Means for disconnection with a suitable – isolating switch must be incorporated in the fixed wiring in accordance with the wiring rules. The power supply cord must not touch against any hot surfaces and must be placed so that its temperature does not exceed 75 °C at any point along its length.
- The controls respond to touch, so you don’t need to apply any pressure.
- Use the pad of your finger, not the tip.
- You will hear a beep each time a touch is registered.
- Make sure the controls are always clean, dry, and that there are no objects (e.g. a utensil or a cloth) covering them. Even a thin film of water may make the controls difficult to operate.
Choosing the Right Cookware
Do not use cookware with jagged edges or a curved base.
Make sure that the base of your pan is smooth, sits flat against the glass, and is the same size as the cooking zone. Always centre your pan on the cooking zone.
Always lift pans off the ceramic hob – do not slide, or they may scratch the glass.
When the power is connected you will hear a beep and all the lights will come on for one second and then go out. This indicates that the cooktop has entered standby mode.
Press the ON/OFF button. The LED display next to ON/OFF button will show “ ”.
Place a suitable pan on the cooking zone that you wish to use.
- Make sure the bottom of the pan and the surface of the cooking zone is clean and dry.
Select power level by turning the knob control.
Turn the whole cooktop off by pressing the ON/OFF button.
If a cooking zone is hot after the cooking zone has been turned off, the display will show until the cooking zone cools down.
Beware of hot surface
Residual heat indicator will flash which means cooking zone is too hot to touch. It will disappear when the surface has cooled down to a safe temperature
Safety feature of the hob is auto shut down. This occurs whenever you forget to switch off a cooking zone.
The default shutdown times are shown in the table below:
|Default working timer (hour)||8||8||8||4||4||4||2||2||2|
Cleaning and Maintenance
Before cleaning the cooktop, first isolate the cooktop from the power. Once done, ensure that there is no residual heat stored in the appliance. Vitro-ceramic glass is very resistant to high temperature and overheating. If there is residual heat stored in the appliance, the related residual heat icon will be on. To avoid burns, let the appliance cool down.
- Remove all spilled food and fat with a clean, damp, warm, slightly soapy dishcloth. Rinse cloth and wipe cooktop again until clean, then wipe the cooktop dry with a clean tea towel or dry, soft cloth.
- If aluminium foil or plastic items are accidentally melted onto the vitro-ceramic surface, they should be immediately removed from the hot cooking area with a scraper specifically designed for vitroceramic glass. This will avoid any possible damage to the surface. This also applies to sugar or food containing sugar that may bespilled on the cooktop.
- In the event of other food melted onto the cooktop surface, remove the dirt when the appliance has cooled down. Use cleaner for glass ceramic or stainless steel when cleaning the surface.
- Do not use abrasive sponges to clean the vitro-ceramic surface. These materials may damage the surface.
- Do not use chemical detergents, sprays or spot removers on the vitro-ceramic surface. These materials may cause fire or the vitro-ceramic colour to fade. Clean with a damp, warm, slightly soapy dishcloth.
- WARNING: Using cookware that is too large can cause discolouration or damage to the cooktop surface around the heat zones, which is NOT covered under warranty.
