First use of the oven
The metal casing of this appliance has been coated with a preservative to protect it during transport and storage. This should be removed during installation by using a non-abrasive stainless steel cleaner. Always follow the instructions given with the cleaner being used.
Before using the oven for the first time we recommend that you clean both oven cavities with soapy water, rinse carefully and then heat on each of the below programmes at maximum temperature for the specified time. A slightly unpleasant smell may be produced, caused by grease remaining on the oven elements from the production process.
15 minutes full grill
60 minutes conventional
60 minutes fan oven
- This oven has been fitted with a cooling fan to achieve maximum efficiency and to maintain low surface temperatures. The cooling fan will switch on automatically when the oven is switched on and runs for a while after the oven has been switched off – the length of time can vary and will be increased by poor ventilation.
- The oven light remains on for every cooking function.
- Do not switch off the oven if you have set a programme for semiautomatic or automatic cooking as this will cancel the programme.
- The current time must be set on the programmer/timer for the cooking functions to work properly (see page 10).
Oven controls and use
Cooking function knobs
To set the function, turn the cooking function knob for the required oven clockwise to the required function. Each of the oven functions uses different elements within the oven to offer you the best choice of cooking every time. These are explained below:
This function uses the top and bottom heating elements only with a temperature between 50ºC and 250ºC. Natural convection creates a perfect cooking zone in the centre of the oven, ideal for dark fruit cakes and pastries.
This function uses the bottom heating element only with a temperature set between 50ºC and 250ºC. This natural heat is perfect for dough proving and blind-baking.
This function radiates the heat from the grill element and the top element. This fully temperature variable grill is ideal for grilling a full family meal. It can be set between 50ºC and 250ºC.
When grilling, please note:
- Always grill with the oven door closed.
- Put the grill pan as close to the grill as possible.
- Do not grill for more than 30 minutes at a time.
- Preheat the grill for a few minutes with the oven door closed.
This function switches on the oven light in the cavity. Please note: the oven light will operate on all cooking functions
Using the fan only this oven function circulates the air around the oven cavity, speeding up the natural defrost process (1kg takes approximately one hour, depending on the type of food).
Using the circular element and the fan with a temperature between 50ºC and 250ºC, this cooking function blows the air into and around the oven cavity. Both cooking temperatures and cooking times can be reduced for a more energy efficient cooking programme. This function is perfect for cooking various food types simultaneously as foods are sealed quickly to prevent flavour transfer.
- To set the temperature, turn the temperature knob for the required oven clockwise to the required temperature.
- Once the oven has reached the required temperature, the temperature indicator lamp on the control panel will switch off.
- The temperature indicator lamp will light up when the oven elements are working.

Care and maintenance
Before any maintenance is started involving electrical parts, the appliance must be disconnected from the power supply. If the oven has been in use, let the oven cavity and the heating elements cool down before attempting any maintenance.
The oven exterior
As the oven has a stainless steel or enamel surface, you should use a nonabrasive cleaner. Any abrasive cleaner (including Cif) will scratch the surface and could erase the control panel markings. Stainless steel can be effectively cleaned by simply using a dilute solution of water and mild detergent and drying to a shine with a clean cloth. Proprietary stainless steel cleaners are available. We recommend the a clean microfibre cloth for cleaning stainless steel surfaces.
Inside of the oven
The oven should always be cleaned after use when it has cooled down.
The cavity should be cleaned using a mild detergent solution and warm water.
Suitable proprietary chemical cleaners may be used after first consulting with the manufacturers’ recommendations and testing a sample on a small area of the oven cavity. Abrasive cleaning agents or scouring pads/cloths should not be used on the cavity surface.
- Steam cleaners must not be used when cleaning this appliance.
- Once care and maintenance is complete, ensure that all parts are correctly replaced before using the oven.
Changing the oven lamp
Before any maintenance is started involving electrical parts, the appliance must be disconnected from the power supply.
If the oven has been in use, let the oven cavity and the heating elements cool down before attempting any maintenance.
Changing the bulb (fig. 2)
Unscrew the protective cover. We recommend that you wash and dry the glass cover at this point. Carefully remove the old bulb and insert the new bulb suitable for high temperatures (300ºC) having the following specifications: 230240V, 50Hz, 25W, G9 fitting.
Refit the protective cover.
Never use screwdrivers or other utensils to remove the light cover. This could damage the enamel of the oven or the lamp holder. Remove only by hand. Make sure the power is off and the lamp assembly has cooled.
Never replace the bulb with bare hands as contamination from your fingers can cause premature failure. Always use a clean cloth or gloves.
The bulb replacement is not covered by your guarantee.
See page 16 for information on removing the appliance doors.

The oven door can easily be removed as follows:
- Open the door to the full extent (fig. 4).
- Open the lever A completely on the left and right hinges (fig. 5).
- Hold the door as shown in (fig. 3).
- Gently close the door (fig. 6) until left and right hinge levers A are hooked to part B of the door (fig. 5).
- Withdraw the hinge hooks from their location following arrow C (fig. 7).
- Rest the door on a soft surface.
