Before using your new oven, please:

  1. Read this user guide, taking special note of the ‘Safety and warnings’ section.
  2. Remove all accessories and packaging. Peel the protective film off all surfaces and accessories.
  3. Set the clocks. The ovens will not work until the clocks have been set.
  4. Condition the ovens:
    • Put in the shelves and trays. Fit them between the metal runners or on the shliding shelf supports, with the safety stop notch down and at the back. (If the side racks and sliding shelf supports are not already fitted, see ‘Care and cleaning’ for how to do this).
  • Heat the ovens on maximum for:

  • There will be a distinctive smell while you are doing this. This is normal, but make sure your kitchen is well ventilated during the conditioning.

  1. Once cooled, wipe out the ovens with a damp cloth and mild detergent, and dry thoroughly.
