Fitting the side racks and catalytic panels

(some models only, purchased separately)

You will find your side racks and catalytic panels (some models only, may be purchased separately) in the accessory box supplied with your oven.

Fit the catalytic panel to the side rack

  1. Ensure the panels are placed the correct way around:

in models with side lights: the cutout fits over the light and the hole for the fixing screw goes to the front of the oven.
in models with a ceiling light: the hole for the fixing screw goes to the front of the oven.

 Panels should sit flush against the oven wall

  1. Fit the rear prongs of the side rack through the holes in the catalytic panel.

Fit the side racks
  1. Slide the rear prongs of the side rack into the holes at the rear of the oven
  2. Fit the side rack front tab (and catalytic panel if fitted) over the fixing screw.
  3. Replace the fixing nut. You may use a coin to tighten the nut.

Condition the oven

It is important to condition your oven before using it for cooking and baking. Conditioning will burn off any manufacturing residues and ensure that you get the best results right from the start.

  1. Make sure you have removed ALL the cable ties used to secure the shelving during transit.
  2. Make sure you have set the clock.
  3. Make sure all the shelves are fitted.

  1. Select the Bake function. The oven will come on.

  1. Set the temperature to 200 ºC for 30 minutes.

    • While the oven is heating up, the temperature indicator light will glow.

    • When the oven has reached set temperature, the temperature indicator light will go out.

If the clock has not been set, the cooling fans will come on, but the oven light will not come on and the oven will not heat up.

  1. After 30 minutes is up, select the Fan Grill function.
    After 20 minutes, switch the oven off.
  2. After 20 minutes is up, select the Fan Forced Function. After 20 minutes, switch the oven off.
  • There will be a distinctive smell and a small amount of smoke during the conditioning process as manufacturing residue is burnt off. This is normal, but make sure the kitchen is well ventilated while the oven is conditioning.
  • Once cooled, wipe out the oven with a damp cloth and mild detergent, and dry thoroughly.
