These instructions are also available at: docs.kitchenaid.eu IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS YOUR SAFETY AND THAT OF OTHERS IS VERY IMPORTANT This manual and the appliance itself provide important safety warnings which you should read and observe at all times. This is the hazard symbol, which warns of potential safety risks to users and others.
- The user must not be able to access the electrical components after installation. - The appliance is designed solely for cooking food in a domestic environment. No other use is permitted (e.g. heating rooms). The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for inappropriate use or incorrect setting of the controls. - The appliance and its accessible parts become hot during use. Care should be taken to avoid touching the heating elements.
- Metallic objects such as knives, forks, spoons and lids should not be placed on the surface of the hob as they can become hot. - After using the hob, switch off the element using its control and do not rely on the pan detector (only applies to hobs with a glass surface). Disposing of household appliances - This product is made from recyclable or reusable materials. It must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations for waste disposal.
Safeguarding the environment Energy saving tips Follow the following recommendations for optimum results: • Use pots and pans that have the same base diameter as the cooking zone you are using. • Only use pots and pans that have a flat base. • If possible, keep the lids on pots and pans while cooking. • Cook vegetables, potatoes, etc. with little water in order to reduce the cooking time. • Use a pressure cooker to save even more energy and time (cannot be used in "SENSOR" mode).
Using existing pots and pans Use a magnet to check whether your pots and pans are suitable for using on the induction hob: If the magnetic does not stick to the item’s base, it will not work on the hob. - Make sure that pots and pans have a smooth base, otherwise they may scratch the glass ceramic surface of the hob. Check dishes as well. - Never place hot pots or pans on the hob’s control panel as they may damage it. OK NO Recommended pan base diameters XL dia. 30 cm dia. 14 cm - 30 cm XL dia.
Electrical wiring WARNING - Disconnect the appliance from the power supply. - Installation must be carried out by a qualified electrician who is fully aware of current safety and installation regulations. - The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for injury to persons or animals and for damage to property resulting from failure to observe the regulations provided in this section. - The power supply cable must be long enough to allow the hob to be removed from the worktop.
Instructions for use Description of the control panel The control panel is equipped with touch controls that can be operated simply by pressing the corresponding symbol (a light touch is sufficient).
Instructions for use Activating and adjusting cooking zones Cooking zone timer Cooking zone selection and selected cooking zone/power setting display 55 0 Slide touchscreen (power adjustment) Place a pot or pan on the cooking zone you want to use and then switch on the hob. Activate the cooking zone by pressing the relevant round button: The round button displays number 0, which corresponds to the intermediate power setting.
Instructions for use Press and hold the button for 3 seconds: A signal will sound and an indicator light will switch on above the lock symbol to confirm that the function has been activated. The control panel is locked with the exception of the OFF function. To unlock the controls, repeat the activation procedure. The dot will go out and the hob will be reactivated.
Instructions for use Changing the power setting or activating the pause function will deactivate the SENSOR function. - The hob manages the SENSOR function and booster settings autonomously; this means that, in some cases, it may not be possible to activate the booster if the SENSOR function is already in use. - The quality of the cookware you use may affect the performance of the SENSOR function.
Cleaning WARNING - Never use steam cleaners. - Before cleaning, make sure that the cooking zones are switched off and the residual heat indicator ("H") is not displayed. IMPORTANT: Do not use abrasive sponges or pan scourers as these could damage the surface of the glass. • Clean the hob after every use (wait until it has cooled down first) to remove any food residues. • Sugar and foods with a high sugar content may damage the glass ceramic surface and must be removed immediately.
After-sales service Before contacting our after-sales service 1. See if you can solve the problem yourself by referring to the "Troubleshooting" section. 2. Switch the hob off and on again to see if the problem persists. If the fault persists after you have carried out the checks listed above, contact your nearest aftersales service.
