First Use



First Use

  • The oven should be thoroughly cleaned with soap and water and carefully rinsed.
  • It is important that you condition the oven before using it for cooking and baking. Conditioning will burn off any manufacturing residue and ensure you get the best results from the start. There will be a distinctive smell and a small amount of smoke during conditioning. This is normal, but make sure the kitchen is well ventilated.
  • Heat the oven for 30 minutes at the maximum temperature. Use the microwave and true convection function without accessories in the oven. Before using the accessories for the first time, clean them carefully with hot water, dishwashing liquid and a soft cloth.

Error Codes

Error codes appear when a fault has been detected. When the error appears, the current function is blocked.
