GENERAL NOTES ON USING THE
We suggest that you run the oven elements for 10 –
15 minutes at 220°C to burn off any residue from
The procedure should be repeated with the grill for
approximately 5 –10 minutes.
During this period an odour may be emitted, it is
therefore advisable to open a window for ventilation.
ABOUT CONDENSATION AND STEAM
When food is heated it produces steam similar to a
boiling kettle. The ovens are vented to allow some of
the steam to escape. However, always stand back
from the appliance when opening the oven door to
allow any build up of steam or heat to release.
If the steam comes into contact with a cool surface
on the outside of the appliance, e.g. a trim, it will
condense and produce water droplets. This is quite
normal and is not caused by a fault on the appliance.
To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe away
condensation and also soilage from surfaces.
Baking trays, dishes etc., should not be placed
directly against the grid covering the fan at the back
of the oven.
Do not use baking trays larger than 30cm x 35cm
(12” x 14”) as they will restrict the circulation of heat
and may affect performance. Advice on the effect of
different materials and finishes of bakeware is given
in ‘Hints and Tips’ in the appropriate oven section.
THE COOLING FAN FOR THE
The cooling fan comes on immediately when the grill
or top oven is switched on and after a short time
when the main oven is in use. It may run on after the
controls are switched off until the appliance has
cooled. During the initial period the cooling fan may
turn ON and OFF, this is quite normal.
Always allow the cooling fan to cool the
appliance down before switching off at the
wall prior to carrying out any cleaning or
CONTROL PANEL INDICATOR NEONS
These lights indicate whether the grill or ovens are
switched ON. In the case of the ovens, the
temperature neons also indicate when the set
temperature has been reached. The temperature
neon will go out when the oven has reached the set

show that the oven temperature is being maintained.
If the neons do not operate as the instructions
indicate the controls have been incorrectly set.
Return all controls to zero and reset following the
instructions for the required setting.
