To avoid burns and scalds, keep children away.
Do not touch hot surfaces inside the oven.

Important safety instructions

  • Isolating switch: make sure this oven is connected to a circuit which incorporates an isolating switch providing full disconnection from the power supply.
  • Household appliances are not intended to be played with by children.
  • Children, or persons with a disability which limits their ability to use the appliance, should have a responsible person to instruct them in its use. The instructor should be satisfied that they can use the appliance without danger to themselves or their surroundings.
  • Safe food handling: leave food in the oven for as short a time as possible before and after cooking. This is to avoid contamination by organisms which may cause food poisoning. Take particular care during warmer weather.
  • Do not place aluminium foil, dishes, trays, water or ice on the oven floor during cooking as this will irreversibly damage the enamel.
  • Do not stand on the door, or place heavy objects on it.
  • Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven door glass since they scratch the surface, which may result in shattering of the glass.
  • Do not use a steam cleaner to clean any part of the oven.
  • Caution. Hot air can blow from under the control panel as part of the oven’s cooling system.
  • Do not keep flammable substances in the oven.
  • Do not operate your appliance by means of an external timer or separate remote-control system. If the power supply cable is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
  • Under unfavourable electrical supply conditions, the appliance may cause temporary voltage drops.
