After unpacking the oven, be sure that it has not been damaged during transport and that the oven door closes properly. In the event of problems, contact the dealer
or your nearest After-sales Service. To avoid any damage, only remove the oven from its polystyrene foam base at the time of installation.


Kitchen units in contact with the oven must be heat resistant (min 90°C).

Carry out all cabinet cutting work before fitting the oven in the housing and carefully remove all wood chips and sawdust.

After installation, the bottom of the oven must no longer be accessible.

For correct appliance operation, do not obstruct the minimum gap between the worktop and the upper edge of the oven.


Be sure the power voltage specified on the appliance dataplate is the same as the mains voltage. The dataplate is on the front edge of the oven (visible when the door
is open).

Power cable replacement (type H05 RR-F 3 x 1.5 mm


) must be carried out by a qualified electrician. Contact an authorized service centre.

Before use:


Remove cardboard protection pieces, protective film and adhesive labels from accessories.


Remove the accessories from the oven and heat it at 200° for about an hour to eliminate the smell and fumes from the insulating materials and protective grease.

During use:


Do not place heavy objects on the door as they could damage it.


Do not cling to the door or hang anything from the handle.


Do not cover the inside of the oven with aluminium foil.


Do not pour water into the inside of a hot oven; this could damage the enamel coating.


Do not drag pots or pans across the bottom of the oven as this could damage the enamel coating.


Be sure that the electrical cables of other appliances do not touch hot parts of the oven or become trapped in the door.


Do not expose the oven to atmospheric agents.
