Room air dependent heat producing

  Important safety information    en

3

Room air-dependent heat-producing 

appliances (e.g. gas, oil, wood or coal-

operated heaters, continuous flow heaters or 

water heaters) obtain combustion air from the 

room in which they are installed and discharge 

the exhaust gases into the open air through an 

exhaust gas system (e.g. a chimney).

In combination with an activated vapour 

extractor hood, room air is extracted from the 

kitchen and neighbouring rooms - a partial 

vacuum is produced if not enough fresh air is 

supplied. Toxic gases from the chimney or the 

extraction shaft are sucked back into the living 

space.

Adequate incoming air must therefore 

always be ensured.

An incoming/exhaust air wall box alone will 

not ensure compliance with the limit.

Safe operation is possible only when the 

partial vacuum in the place where the heat-

producing appliance is installed does not 

exceed 4 Pa (0.04 mbar). This can be 

achieved when the air needed for combustion 

is able to enter through openings that cannot 

be sealed, for example in doors, windows, 

incoming/exhaust air wall boxes or by other 

technical means.

In any case, consult your responsible Master 

Chimney Sweep. He is able to assess the 

house's entire ventilation setup and will 

suggest the suitable ventilation measures to 

you.

Unrestricted operation is possible if the vapour 

extractor hood is operated exclusively in the 

circulating-air mode.

Warning

Risk of fire!

Grease deposits in the grease filter may 

catch fire.

Clean the grease filter at least every 

2 months. 

Never operate the appliance without the 

grease filter.

Risk of fire!

Grease deposits in the grease filter may 

catch fire. Never work with naked flames 

close to the appliance (e.g. flambéing). Do 

not install the appliance near a heat-

producing appliance for solid fuel (e.g. 

wood or coal) unless a closed, non-

removable cover is available. There must 

be no flying sparks.

Risk of fire!

Hot oil and fat can ignite very quickly. Never 

leave hot fat or oil unattended. Never use 

water to put out burning oil or fat. Switch off 

the hotplate. Extinguish flames carefully 

using a lid, fire blanket or something similar. 

Risk of fire!

When gas burners are in operation without 

any cookware placed on them, they can 

build up a lot of heat. A ventilation 

appliance installed above the cooker may 

become damaged or catch fire. Only 

operate the gas burners with cookware on 

them.

Risk of fire!

Operating several gas burners at the same 

time gives rise to a great deal of heat. A 

ventilation appliance installed above the 

cooker may become damaged or catch fire. 

Never operate two gas burners 

simultaneously on the highest flame for 

longer than 15 minutes. One large burner of 

more than 5 kW (wok) is equivalent to the 

power of two gas burners.

Warning

Risk of burns!

The accessible parts become very hot when in 

operation. Never touch hot parts. Keep 

children at a safe distance.

:

Warning

Risk of injury!

Components inside the appliance may have 

sharp edges. Wear protective gloves.

Risk of injury!

Items placed on the appliance may fall 

down. Do not place any objects on the 

appliance.

Risk of injury!

The light emitted by LED lights is very 

dazzling, and can damage the eyes (risk 

group 1). Do not look directly into the 

switched on LED lights for longer than 100 

seconds.
