WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
RATING PLATE
This is situated on the front frame of the appliance
and can be seen upon opening the top cavity door.
Alternatively the rating plate may also be found on
the back or top of some models (where applicable).
The appliance must be protected by a suitably rated
fuse or circuit breaker. The rating of the appliance is
given on the rating plate.
Do not remove the rating plate from the appliance
as this may invalidate the guarantee.
INSTALLATION
If your appliance has been damaged in transit,
contact your supplier immediately. DO NOT attempt
to install it.
Your appliance left the factory fully packaged to
protect it from damage. If it is delivered without
packaging and damage has occurred, the
manufacturer cannot accept responsibility. Contact
your supplier for advice.
Once the packaging has been removed the appliance
should only be moved by hand. DO NOT use a sack
barrow or any other aid to lift the appliance as
damage may occur.
Connection to the electricity supply must be carried
out by a qualified electrician/competent person.
The electrical connection should be made using a
double pole isolating switch (cooker socket) with at
least 3mm contact separation in all poles. The cable
must have conductors of sufficiently high cross-
sectional area to prevent overheating and
deterioration.
The recommended cross-section area is six square
millimetres (6.00mm
2
).
The cable must be routed away from potentially hot
areas marked by X in the diagram below.
To move the appliance, open the fan oven door, and
lift the appliance by holding inside the top of the
compartment.
This is a type X appliance which means it is free-
standing and can be fitted with cabinets on one or
both sides. It may also be fitted in a corner setting.
Ensure that the appliance is standing level.
Side walls which are above hob level should be
protected by heat resistant non-combustible material
and MUST NOT be nearer than 40mm to the hob
side.
A nominal air gap of 2mm at either side of the
appliance is required to enable the appliance to be
moved into position.
Always ensure an air gap is maintained at hotplate
level. Tiles or other forms of deep wall covering
should not obscure this gap.
INTRODUCTION
Air gap
Page: 8
9
Note: Vapours from the oven vents may in time
cause discoloration of wall coverings behind the
appliance. For ease of cleaning it may be preferable
to tile behind the appliance.
Overhanging surfaces or a cooker hood should be a
minimum of 685mm above the hob.
It is important to ensure that the appliance is level
after installation. Levelling feet are fitted to the
appliance to accommodate uneven floors.
GENERAL NOTES ON USING THE
OVEN
We suggest that you run the oven elements for 10 –
15 minutes at 220°C to burn off any residue from
their surfaces.
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
including the air vent at the rear of the hob. See note
at the top of this page.
For your safety wallcoverings at the rear of the
appliance should be securely fixed to the wall.
THE COOLING FAN FOR THE CONTROLS
The cooling fan operates immediately when the grill
or top oven is switched on. It may run on after the
controls are switched off until the appliance has
cooled. If an automatic programme has been set for
the top oven, the cooling fan does not switch on until
the cooktime begins.
The cooling fan may operate after a time when the
fan oven is in use. This will depend on the
temperature setting and the length of time the oven
has been in use.
CONTROL PANEL INDICATOR NEONS
These lights indicate whether the ovens are switched
ON.
The neons also indicate when the set temperature
has been reached. They will turn on and off during
use to show that the 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.
COOKWARE
Baking trays, oven 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.

CAUTION: DO NOT USE THE APPLIANCE IF THE CERAMIC GLASS IS DAMAGED. IF A FAULT OR CRACK
BECOMES VISIBLE DURING COOKING, DISCONNECT THE APPLIANCE IMMEDIATELY FROM THE
ELECTRICITY SUPPLY AND CONTACT YOUR LOCAL SERVICE FORCE CENTRE.
USING THE HOB
· To operate the dual hotplate turn the control knob
clockwise for the full area, or anticlockwise for
the centre section.
· The inner section is very economical when
cooking with small diameter saucepans.
· For single hotplates, turn the control knob in
either direction to vary the heat setting. The
highest number represents the hottest setting
and the lowest number represents the coolest
setting. Choose a setting appropriate to the
quantity and type of food to be cooked.
· This model has the added feature of Ceraglow
hotplates which react more quickly than other
ceramic hotplates and are easily identified by
their rapid glow.
RECOMMENDED SAUCEPANS
For speed and economy only good quality saucepans
with flat bases and close fitting lids are
recommended. The saucepan base should be
approximately the same size as the cooking area, a
base diameter of up to 225mm (9”) may be used on a
180mm (7”) heated area.
Pressure cookers, preserving pans, etc., should
comply with the recommendations given above.
Ensure that new saucepans are well scrubbed to
remove edges and take off any deposits left from
manufacture.
Traditional round bottomed Woks must not be used
even with a stand. Woks with flat-bottomed bases
are available and do comply with the above
recommendations.
NOTE
Occasionally the heated areas may be seen to switch
ON and OFF when higher heat settings are being
used. This is due to a safety device which prevents
the glass from overheating. Some switching ON and
OFF when cooking at high temperatures, e.g. deep
fat frying is quite normal, causes no damage to the
hob and little delay in cooking times.
Excessive switching may however be caused by the
use of an unsuitable saucepan or a saucepan which
is smaller than the heated area. If excessive
switching occurs, discontinue use of the saucepan.
HINTS AND TIPS
· Lift, rather than slide saucepans on and off the
heated areas. This will reduce the risk of
scratches and metal marks from saucepans with
aluminium bases. Metal marks can be easily
cleaned off providing they are not allowed to burn
on.
· Follow any guidelines provided by the saucepan
manufacturer, particularly those relating to
recommended heat settings.
· Avoid using thin, badly dented or distorted
saucepans as they can lead to sticking and
burning of food.
THE CERAMIC HOB
Page: 16
17
· To prolong the life of the hotplates:-
· Never use utensils with a skirt, e.g. a bucket.
· Never use an asbestos mat.
· Never leave the hotplates ON when not
covered with a saucepan.
· Ensure that the hob and saucepans are clean
and dry before the start of cooking to reduce
cleaning.
· Follow the cleaning instructions very closely to
keep the hob looking like new.
· If spillage occurs with sugar solutions, e.g.
jams and syrups, it must be wiped from the
hob before it sets and becomes hard
otherwise damage to the hob will occur.
HOT HOB INDICATOR
The ceramic hob is fitted with a hot hob indicator light
which illuminates when the hob is too hot to touch.
The light will go OFF when the hob has cooled.
DEEP FAT FRYING
SPECIAL FRYING NOTE:
For safety purposes when deep fat frying, fill the pan
one third full of oil, DO NOT cover the pan with a lid
and DO NOT leave the pan unattended. In the
unfortunate event of a fire, switch the appliance OFF
at the electricity supply and cover the pan with a lid
or damp cloth to assist in smothering the flames.
DO NOT use water on the fire. Leave the pan to cool
for at least 30 minutes before moving it.
DO NOT leave the fat or oil in the frying pan on the
hob to store it in case the hob is inadvertently
switched ON.
1. Preparing the food.
Seal the food by coating with flour, egg and
breadcrumbs or batter. Do not use a basket with
batter coated foods as they will stick.
2. Amount of oil.
For safety purposes fill the pan only one-third full
of oil.
3. Testing the temperature of the oil.
It is advisable to use a thermometer to test the
temperature of the oil. Alternatively, drop a small
cube of bread into the oil which should brown in
just under a minute if the oil is at the correct
temperature of 190°C/375°F.
4. Cooking the food.
Lower the food gently into the oil. Do Not add
too much food at once or the temperature of the
oil will be reduced and may result in soggy,
greasy food.
Turn the food if necessary; doughnuts float to the
surface so will not brown on the upperside if not
turned. Once cooked, drain the food on
absorbent paper.
5. Double frying chips.
Double frying will ensure good chips. First fry the
chips for a few minutes at 170°C/340°F to seal
the outside. Remove the chips from the oil.
Increase the temperature of the oil to
190°C/375°F to finish cooking and brown the
chips.
Chips may be kept for several hours after the first
frying before finishing off with the second frying.

PRESERVING
1. DO NOT use a pan that overlaps the perimeter of
the hob trim.
2. To allow for a full rolling boil, the pan should be
no more than one third full when all the
ingredients have been added. It is better to use
two pans rather than overfill one, or use half
quantities.
3. Use firm fruit or vegetables and wash well before
using.
4. Preserving sugar gives clear jam, however
granulated sugar is cheaper and gives equally
good flavour.
5. Crystallization may be caused if sugar is not
completely dissolved before bringing jam to the
boil. Over boiling will affect the flavour, setting
properties and colour of the jam.
6. To test jam for setting:
If a jam thermometer is available, boil jam to
104°C. Marmalade should be boiled to 106°C.
If a jam thermometer is not available, remove
pan from heat, place sample of jam on a cold
dish, and cool quickly (i.e. in a freezer or frozen
food storage compartment of a refrigerator).
When cold, it will crinkle and hold the mark of a
finger run through it, if it is at setting point.
7. The scum should be removed as soon as
possible after setting point has been reached.
Marmalade should be allowed to cool before
potting to prevent the peel rising.

USES OF THE DUAL GRILL
CAUTION - ACCESSIBLE PARTS MAY BECOME HOT WHEN THE GRILL IS IN USE. CHILDREN SHOULD BE
KEPT AWAY.
The grill is a dual circuit grill which means that the full area of the grill can be used, or for economy
purposes, the centre section only can be used when cooking smaller quantities of food.
SELECTING THE GRILL
· Select the grill function for full grill.
· Select the grill function for centre section only.
· Turn the temperature control knob to the right as
far as it will go. This is the hottest setting.
· To use the grill at lower settings turn the top
temperature control knob so that 110°C or 150°C
on the knob lines up with the off dot on the panel.
THINGS TO NOTE
· The cooling fan will operate in conjunction with
the grill. For more details on the operation of the
cooling fan see page 9.
NOTE
THE GRILL DOOR MUST BE LEFT OPEN DURING
GRILLING
If the grill door is accidentally closed during grilling a
safety device incorporated in the appliance will cut
out the grill.
The top oven cannot be operated when the grill is in
use. If the grill and top oven controls are selected at
the same time, only the top oven will operate.
The inner element may appear to glow slightly
brighter than the outer element. This is quite normal.
THE GRILL PAN AND HANDLE
The grill pan is supplied with a removable handle.
To attach the handle, place the wirework under the
cut out in the pan so that the metal hooks over the
top of the grill pan.
Slide the handle to the left and over the central bump
on the grill pan.
Ensure the handle is correctly located. It is not
necessary to remove the grill pan handle during
grilling.
To remove the handle, slide the handle to the right
and lift the handle away from the cut out on the grill
pan.
Place the grill pan on the shelf so that the pan is
positioned centrally beneath the grill.
THE GRILL
THE DUAL GRILL
Page: 18
19
To check the progress of the food being grilled, the
grill pan should be withdrawn on the shelf to attend to
food during cooking.
HINTS AND TIPS
· In order to become acquainted with the
performance of the Dual Grill it is advisable to
check food regularly when grilling.
· Food should be thoroughly dried before grilling to
minimise splashing. Brush lean meats and fish
lightly with a little oil or melted butter to keep
them moist during cooking.
· Adjust the grid and grill pan runner position to
allow for different thicknesses of food.
· Accompaniments such as tomatoes and
mushrooms may be placed underneath the grid
when grilling meats.
· When toasting bread, use the shelf in position 1
with the grid in the ‘high’ position.
· Preheat the grill on a full setting for a few minutes
before sealing steaks or toasting. Adjust the heat
setting and the shelf as necessary during
cooking.
· The food should be turned over during cooking
as required.
· When using the centre section of the dual grill,
ensure food is positioned centrally on the grill
pan grid in the grill pan.
· Place food on the grill pan grid in the grill pan.
NOTE
If you require an additional handle for your grill pan,
this can be ordered from your local Service Force
Centre by quoting part number 311479800\6

USES OF THE TOP OVEN
The top oven is the smaller of the two ovens. It is heated by elements in the top and bottom of the oven. It is
designed for cooking smaller quantities of food. It gives especially good results if used to cook fruit cakes, sweets
and savoury flans or quiche.
The top oven is also ideal for use as warming compartment to warm dishes and keep food hot. Use a temperature
setting of 90°C – 100°C on the top oven control dial.
SELECTING THE TOP OVEN
· Turn the top oven function selector to
· Turn the top oven temperature control to the
required setting.
· The cooling fan will operate immediately with the
top oven. For more details on cooling fan
operation see page 9.
THINGS TO NOTE
1. The grill cannot be operated when the top oven is
in use. If the grill and top oven controls are
selected at the same time, only the top oven will
operate.
2. The top oven indicator neon will glow until the
oven has reached the desired temperature and
then go out. It will turn ON and OFF showing
that the oven temperature is being maintained.
TO FIT THE TOP OVEN SHELF
The shelf should be fitted with the straight rods
uppermost on the frame and the forms towards the
back of the oven. If not fitted correctly the anti-tilt
and safety stop mechanism will be affected.
THE TOP OVEN
Page: 20
21
HINTS AND TIPS
· All cooking should be carried out using an oven
shelf positioned in one of the shelf runners.
· Larger roasts and casseroles should normally be
cooked in the fan oven. However, they may be
cooked on a flat shelf placed on the base of the
top oven provided there is sufficient room for air
circulation around the food.
· Stand dishes on a suitably sized baking tray on
the shelf to prevent spillage onto the oven base
and to help reduce cleaning.
· There should always be at least 2.5cm (1”)
between the top of the food and the element.
This gives best cooking results and allows room
for rise in yeast mixtures, Yorkshire puddings etc.
· DO NOT place dishes or baking trays directly
onto the oven base as it becomes very hot and
damage may occur.
· When cooking cakes, pastry, scones, bread etc.,
place the tins or baking trays centrally on the
shelf directly below the element.
· The material and finish of the baking trays and
dishes will affect the degree of base browning of
the food. Enamelware, dark, heavy or non-stick
utensils increase base browning. Shiny
aluminium or polished steel trays reflect the heat
away and give less base browning.
· DO NOT use the grill pan as a baking tray as this
will increase base browning of the food.
· Because of the smaller cooking space, lower
temperatures and shorter cooking times are
sometimes required. Be guided by the
recommendations on page 24.
· For economy leave the door open for the shortest
possible time, particularly when placing food into
a pre-heated oven.
Page: 21
22
USES OF THE MAIN FAN OVEN
The oven is heated by an element around the fan situated behind the back panel. The fan draws air from the oven
and the element heats the air which circulates in the oven via the vents in the back panel. The advantages of fan
oven cooking are:
PREHEATING
The fan oven quickly reaches its temperature, so it is not usually necessary to preheat the oven. Without
preheating however, you may find you need to add an extra 5-10 minutes on the recommended cooking times.
For recipes needing high temperatures, e.g. bread, pastries, scones, soufflés etc., best results are achieved if the
oven is preheated first. For best results when cooking frozen or cooked chilled ready meals always preheat the
oven first.
COOKNG TEMPERATURES
Fan oven cooking generally requires lower temperatures than conventional cooking. Follow the temperatures
recommended in the chart on page 24. As a guide reduce temperatures by about 20°C - 25°C for your own
recipes, using a conventional oven.
BATCH BAKING
The fan oven cooks evenly on all shelf levels, especially useful when batch baking.
SELECTING THE FAN OVEN
· Turn the fan oven temperature control to the
required setting.
THINGS TO NOTE
1) The fan oven indicator neon will glow until the
oven has reached the desired temperature and
then go out. It will turn ON and OFF periodically
during cooking showing that the temperature is
being maintained.
2) The interior light will come ON when the fan oven
control is turned.
TO FIT THE MAIN OVEN SHELVES
The shelves should be fitted with the straight rods
uppermost on the frame and the forms towards the
back of the oven. If not fitted correctly the anti-tilt
and safety stop mechanism will be affected.
THE MAIN FAN OVEN

23
HINTS AND TIPS
· Arrange the shelves in the required positions
before switching the oven ON. Shelf positions
are numbered from the bottom upwards.
· When cooking more than one dish in the fan
oven, place dishes centrally on different shelves
rather than cluster several dishes on one shelf,
this will allow the heat to circulate freely for the
best cooking results.
· When batch baking one type of food, e.g. Victoria
sandwich cakes, those of similar size will be
cooked in the same time.
· It is recommended that when baking larger
quantities, the shelf positions should be evenly
spaced to suit the load being cooked. A slight
increase in cooking time may be necessary.
· DO NOT place baking trays directly on the oven
floor as it interferes with the oven air circulation
and can lead to base burning; use the lower shelf
position.
· The use of excessively high temperatures can
cause uneven browning. It may be necessary to
reduce temperatures slightly. Refer to the
recommendations given in the oven cooking
chart, see page 24.

The roasting temperatures and times given in the chart should be adequate for most joints, but slight adjustments
may be required to allow for personal requirements and the shape and texture of the meat. However, lower
temperatures and longer cooking times are recommended for less tender cuts or larger joints.
Wrap joints in foil if preferred, for extra browning uncover for the last 20 – 30 min. cooking time.

USES OF DEFROST FEATURE
This main oven function defrosts most foods faster
than more conventional methods. It is particularly
suitable for delicate frozen foods which are to be
served cold, e.g. cream filled gateaux, cakes covered
with icings or frostings, cheesecakes, biscuits,
scones, etc.
It is preferable to thaw fish, meat and poultry slowly
in the fridge. However, this process can be
accelerated by using the defrost function.
Small or thin fish fillets, frozen peeled prawns, cubed
or minced meat, liver, thin chops, steaks etc., can be
thawed in 1 – 2 hours.
A 1kg/2¼lb oven ready chicken will be thawed in
approximately 5 hours. Remove the giblets as soon
as possible during the thawing process.
Joints of meat up to 2kg/4½lb in weight can be
thawed using the defrost function.
ALL JOINTS OF MEAT AND POULTRY MUST BE
THAWED THOROUGHLY BEFORE COOKING
ALWAYS COOK THOROUGHLY IMMEDIATELY
AFTER THAWING.
SELECTING DEFROST
· Turn the main oven temperature control to the
defrost setting.
THINGS TO NOTE
Care must always be taken when handling foods in
the home. Always follow the basic rules of food
hygiene to prevent bacterial growth and cross
contamination when defrosting, preparing, cooking,
cooling and freezing foods.
HINTS AND TIPS
· Place the frozen food in a single layer where
possible and turn it over half way through the
defrosting process.
· The actual speed of defrosting is influenced by
room temperature. On warm days defrosting will
be faster than on cooler days.
· DO NOT leave food at room temperature once it
is defrosted. Cook raw food immediately or store
cooked food in the fridge, once it has cooled.

ALWAYS SWITCH OFF THE ELECTRICITY
SUPPLY AT THE MAIN WALL SWITCH
AND ALLOW THE APPLIANCE TO COOL
BEFORE CLEANING.
CLEANING MATERIALS
Before using any cleaning materials on your
appliance, check that they are suitable and that their
use is recommended by the manufacturer.
Cleaners that contain bleach should NOT be used as
they may dull the surface finishes. Abrasives must
also be avoided to prevent damaging the stainless
steel or painted finishes. See 'Cleaning the Outside
of the Appliance' on page 28. Multi-surface anti-
bacterial products should not be used on the ceramic
hob or on the surrounding trims.
CLEANING THE CERAMIC HOB
Make sure the ceramic glass is cool before cleaning.
It is important to clean the ceramic hob daily to
prevent soilage being burnt on.
Take care to avoid the hob trims when cleaning the
ceramic glass as they may be damaged by the
cleaning agents recommended.
DAILY CLEANING
Use the recommended Hob Brite Cleaner daily. If
soilage is not allowed to burn on it will be much
easier to clean off.
1. Apply a small amount of Hob Brite in the centre
of each area to be cleaned.
2. Dampen a clean paper towel or a plastic pad
made specially for non-stick saucepans and rub
vigorously until all marks are removed. This may
take a few minutes.
3. Wipe off residues of cleaner with another damp
paper towel and polish dry with a soft cloth.
TO REMOVE MORE STUBBORN MARKS
1. A powder cleaner such as Bar Keepers Friend
may be used to clean off more stubborn stains or
to remove discolourations.
It may be necessary to rub the marks hard for
several minutes.
2. Use a plastic pad specially for non-stick
saucepans with Bar-Keepers Friend for removal
of more stubborn soilage.
If Hob Brite is unavailable, one or more of the
cleaning agents below may be used temporarily:
a) Cif Cream Cleaner
b) Baking Soda
TO REMOVE BURNT ON SOILAGE
We strongly recommend the use of a Ceramic Hob
Scraper (incorporating a single edge razor blade) to
remove spillage on the hob, in particular sugar
solutions, which if not removed can cause permanent
damage.
1. Make sure the ceramic glass is cool.
2. Use a ceramic hob scraper with care at an angle
of 30° to remove as much soilage as possible.
3. Use Bar-Keepers Friend or Hob Brite to finish off
as directed above.
TO REMOVE DISCOLOURATIONS OR
WHITE AND SILVER MARKS
These marks sometimes give the impression of being
in or underneath the hob glass. They can almost
always be removed provided they have not become
excessively burnt on. Follow the instructions above
under ‘To Remove More Stubborn Marks’.
If this is unsuccessful, make up a paste of one part
water to three parts Cream of Tarter and leave on the
discoloured areas overnight. The marks should be
easily removable the next day provided they have not
been excessively burnt on. The paste should be
thoroughly washed off afterwards.
CARE AND CLEANING
Page: 27
28
HINTS AND TIPS
TO REDUCE HOB SOILAGE:
· Make sure the bottom of the saucepan and the
cooking area are clean and dry before cooking
begins.
· Ensure saucepans are large enough to
accommodate food to avoid boil overs.
· If possible, wipe up spills and splatters as they
occur, but take care to avoid steam burns.
· Avoid using a dishcloth or sponge to clean the
hob. These may leave a layer of soiled detergent
on the hob surface which will burn and discolour
the next time the hob is used.
· Avoid the use of:
● Household detergents and bleaches.
● Impregnated plastic or nylon pads that are not
described as suitable for non-stick saucepans.
● Brillo pads, Ajax pads, steel wool pads.
● Chemical oven cleaners, e.g. aerosols and
oven pads.
● Rust stain, bath and sink stain removers.
· Any of the above products may cause
damage to the hob.
· It is dangerous to mix different cleaning products.
The chemicals in them may react with each other
with hazardous results.
· SOILAGE FROM SUGAR SOLUTIONS MUST
BE REMOVED FROM THE HOB BEFORE THE
SYRUP HAS SET OTHERWISE DAMAGE TO
THE HOB SURFACE WILL OCCUR.
· Avoid placing plastic items, aluminium foil or
dishes on the hot surface as this will cause
damage to the hob.
CLEANING THE OUTSIDE OF THE
APPLIANCE
DO NOT use abrasive cleaning materials e.g. Hob
Brite, Brillo pads or scourers on painted or printed
finishes as damage may occur. Regularly wipe over
the control panel, oven doors and cooker sides using
a soft cloth and hot soapy water. To prevent
streaking on stainless steel models finish with a soft
cloth.
Any spillage on the stainless steel finish must be
wiped off immediately.
Stainless Steel cream cleaners are abrasive and
should be avoided as they may dull the surface
finish.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE ANY OF THE
CONTROL KNOBS FROM THE PANEL AS THIS
MAY CAUSE DAMAGE AND IS A SAFETY
HAZARD.
CLEANING THE CONTROL KNOBS AND
HANDLES
It is strongly recommended that only hot soapy water
is used for cleaning the control knobs and door
handles. ANY OTHER CLEANING MATERIALS
WILL DULL THE PLATED FINISH.
CLEANING THE GRILL AND OVEN
FURNITURE
All removable parts, except the grill pan handle can
be washed in the dishwasher.
The meat tin, grill pan, grill pan grid and oven shelves
may be cleaned using a soap impregnated steel wool
pad. Soaking first in hot soapy water will make
cleaning easier.
Page: 28
29
CLEANING INSIDE THE OVEN AND GRILL
COMPARTMENTS
The sides and back of the main oven and top oven /
grill compartments are coated with a Stayclean
surface.
The Stayclean surfaces inside the ovens should not
be cleaned manually. See ‘Care of Stayclean
Surfaces’.
The vitreous enamel base in the grill compartment
and the fan oven base can be cleaned using normal
oven cleaners or aerosol oven cleaners with care.
Ensure that the manufacturers instructions are
followed and that all parts are well rinsed afterwards.
Aerosol cleaners must not be used on Stayclean
surfaces and must not come into contact with the
elements or the door seal as this may cause
damage.
CARE OF STAYCLEAN SURFACES
Stayclean surfaces destroy splashes of food and fats
when the oven temperature is raised to around
220°C.
It is a good idea to run the oven for an hour or two
per week to ensure continued good performance
from the Stayclean finish.
HINTS AND TIPS
· Manual cleaning of the Stayclean surface IS NOT
recommended. Damage will occur if abrasives or
aerosol sprays of any kind are used.
· Slight discolouration and polishing of the
Stayclean surfaces may occur in time. This
DOES NOT affect the Stayclean properties in
any way.
· A good time to allow the oven to run on is after
the weekly roast. After removing the roast, turn
the oven up to 220°C and allow to run for an hour
or so. It is important NOT to allow a build-up of
soilage as this can prevent the Stayclean
surfaces from working.
· Follow the recommendations below to keep oven
soilage to minimum.
· Cook at the recommended temperatures. Higher
temperatures during roasting will increase
soilage. Try cooking at lower temperatures for
an increased length of time, you will save energy
and often the joint is more tender.
· Use minimal, if any, extra oil or fat when roasting
meat, potatoes only require brushing with fat
before cooking. Extra fat in the oven during
roasting will increase splashing and soilage.
· It is NOT necessary to add water to a meat tin
when roasting. The water and the fat juices from
the joint create excessive splattering during
cooking – even at normal temperatures, as well
as causing condensation.
· Covering joints during cooking will also prevent
splashing onto the interior surfaces. Removing
the covering for the last 20-30 minutes will allow
extra browning if required. Some large joints and
turkeys especially benefit by this method of
cooking, allowing the joint to cook through before
the outside is over-browned.
CLEANING THE DOOR GLASS
To prevent damaging or weakening the
door glass panels avoid the use of the
following:
· Household detergents and bleaches
· Impregnated pads unsuitable for non-
stick saucepans
· Brillo/Ajax pads or steel wool pads
· Chemical oven pads or aerosols
· Rust removers
· Bath/Sink stain removers
Page: 29

CLEANING BETWEEN THE OUTER AND
INNER DOOR GLASS PANELS
The outer door panel is removable for cleaning.
TO REMOVE THE OUTER PANEL
1. Open the oven door slightly to gain access to the
two cross head screws on the top of the oven
door.
2. Loosen the two screws using a Pozidrive
screwdriver.
3. Hold the door panel securely in place with one
hand before removing the screws completely with
the other hand.
4. Using both hands, gently tilt the top of the door
glass towards you, lift slightly to disengage the
locators from the two bottom brackets.
5. Clean the outer and inner glass using hot soapy
water or Hob Brite may be used with care. DO
NOT use Hob Brite on the Stainless Steel or
painted finishes. DO NOT try to clean the foil
which is inside the door. The foil is there to help
keep the door cool, if it is damaged it will not
work. Ensure that all parts are well rinsed and
thoroughly dried before attempting to replace the
outer door.
TO REPLACE THE OUTER PANEL
1. Holding the door panel with both hands, gently
place the locators into the holes of the brackets
at the bottom of the oven door.
2. Push the top of the oven glass towards the oven
door, ensuring the screw location holes line up.
3. Hold the panel in place with one hand and insert
the cross head screws into the location holes
with the other hand. Give the screws one turn
to ensure the glass is secure.
4. Tighten the screws positively with a Pozidrive
screwdriver before closing the oven door.
Do not attempt to use the oven without the
glass being in place.
If the door glass panel becomes chipped or
has deep scratches the glass will be
weakened and must be replaced to prevent
the possibility of the panel shattering.
Please contact your local Service Force
Centre who will be pleased to advise further.
TO CLEAN THE INNER GLASS DOOR
PANELS
Clean the inner glass door panels using a soft cloth
and hot water to which a little washing up liquid has
been added. If the inner panel is heavily soiled, Hob
Brite may be used. Do not use abrasive cleaning
materials on the door glass. Ensure that all parts are
well rinsed and thoroughly dried before attempting to
replace the glass.
REPLACING AN OVEN LIGHT BULB
The type of bulb required is a 300°C 25 watt small
Edison Screw. Part number 572 491 5431-00/1
(Available through local Service Force Centres).
CAUTION: DISCONNECT THE APPLIANCE
FROM THE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY BEFORE
REPLACING THE BULB.
Open the door and remove the shelves to enable
easy access to the oven light assembly. Insert a flat
blade screwdriver between the oven side and glass
which covers the bulb.
Support the glass with your hand and prise out
sufficiently to release the glass cover. Unscrew the
bulb in an anticlockwise direction until it is possible to
remove the bulb with ease.
Fit the new bulb by turning in a clockwise direction
until it is secure. Ensuring the indent to the flange is
