4.4 Operating the timer

The required moisture level and temperature can
be set before and after time programming by
turning the “Temperature” or “moisture level” knob.

As long as one or several symbol(s) in the display
flash(es), no input is possible and no value is pro-
grammed or an invalid value has been programmed.

All time values are entered by means of the

(timer), +, – and

(confirmation) keys. Every

input triggers an audible and a visible signal.

If you select a program (e.g. end), but you do not
enter a value, the current time will appear on the
display after 20 seconds.

An entered value (e.g. duration programming) must
be confirmed within 20 seconds

(Confirm) key.

Entered values are not stored if they are not

Press the

(Confirm) key if you wish to confirm

a value during programming.
If you press any other key instead, the entered
value will not be stored and will disappear.

You can query set values by pressing the
(timer) key. The value appears on the display for
around 10 seconds. During this time, you can
modify the value by pressing the + or – key and you
can confirm it by pressing the

(Confirm) key.

Press the + and – keys at the same time if you wish
to clear a value.

If you have already programmed a time value once
(e.g. a duration) on the appliance, this previously
programmed value will be proposed to you when
programming a value again.

The longer you press the + or – key when
programming a time, the faster the time elapses on
the display.

After completion of time programming, the
corresponding symbol flashes on the display. For
example, if you have programmed an end time, the

(end time) symbol will flash. An audible signal is

also sounded. Heating is deactivated and the oven
lighting goes off. You can restart the previously
selected mode by pressing any key on the display.
You end the baking process by turning the
“Temperature" knob to 0.

During a time programming it is possible at any
time to turn the “Temperature” control knob back
to 0. The steam oven will then no longer heat. The
previously programmed value is retained. An
audible signal sounds after the entered time has

Every alarm goes off after 3 minutes.

Note: all time programming functions can be
programmed simultaneously.


If the time is not displayed exactly on the

timer, this may not be due to a technical defect. The
mains frequency of the public power supply is the
time base for the timers. In Europe, this is a
standard frequency of 50 Hz (Hertz). As far as this
point is concerned, power supply networks that are
fed from power stations in eastern Europe fluctuate.
This is why an incorrect time may be displayed.
This discrepancy has no influence on the functions
and program sequences of the appliance.
