This appliance is marked according to the European directive 2012/19/EU on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). WEEE contains both polluting substances (which can cause negative consequences  for the environment) and basic components (which can be re-used). It is important to have WEEE subjected to specific treatments, in order to remove and dispose properly all pollutants, and recover and recycle all materials. Individuals can play an important role in ensuring that WEEE does not become an environmental issue; it is essential to follow some basic rules:

  • WEEE shall not be treated as household waste.
  • WEEE shall be handed over to the relevant collection points managed by the municipality or by registered companies. In many countries, for large WEEE, home collection could be present.
  • When you buy a new appliance, the old one may be returned to the retailer who has to collect it free of charge on a one-to-one basis, as long as the equipment is of equivalent type and has the same functions as the supplied equipment.

Where possible, avoid pre-heating the oven and always try to fill it. Open the oven door as infrequently as possible, because heat from the cavity disperses every time it is opened. For a significant energy saving, switch off the oven between 5 and 10 minutes before the planned end of the cooking time, and use the residual heat that the oven continues to generate. Keep the seals clean and in order, to avoid any heat dispersal outside of the cavity. If you have an electric contract with an hourly tariff, the “delayed cooking” programme makes energy saving more simple, moving the cooking process to start at the reduced tariff time slot.


  • Thank you for choosing one of our products. To get the most out of your oven we recommend that you:
    • Read the notes in this manual carefully: they contain important instructions on how to install, use and service this oven safely.
    • Keep this booklet in a safe place for easy, future reference.
  • All accessible parts are hot when the appliance is in operation, take care to not touch these elements.
  • When the oven is first switched on it may give out acrid smelling fumes. This is because the bonding agent for insulating panels around the oven has been heated up for the first time.
  • This is a completely normal, if it does occur you merely have to wait for the fumes to clear before putting the food into the oven.
  • An oven by its very nature becomes very hot. Especially the glass of the oven door.

By placing the mark on the appliance, we are confirming compliance to all relevant European safety, health and environmental requirements which are applicable in legislation for this product.


  • The oven must be used only for the purpose for which it was designed: it must only be used for cooking food. Any other use, e.g. as a form of heating, is an improper use of the oven and is therefore dangerous.
  • The manufacturers cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by improper, incorrect or unreasonable use. When using any electrical appliance you must follow a few basic rules.
    • Do not pull on the power cable to remove the plug from the socket.
    • Do not touch the oven with wet or damp hands or feet.
    • Do not use the oven unless you are wearing something on your feet.
    • It is not generally a good idea to use adapters, multiple sockets for several plugs and cable extensions.
    • If the oven breaks down or develops a fault switch it off at the mains and do not touch it.
  • If the cable is at all damaged it must be replaced promptly.
  • When replacing the cable, follow these instructions. Remove the power cable and replace it with one of the H05V2V2-F type. The cable must be able to bear the electrical current required by the oven. Cable replacement must be carried out by properly qualified technicians. The earthing cable (yellow-green) must be 10 mm longer than the power cable.
  • Use only an approved service centre for repairs and ensure that only original parts are used. If the above instructions are not adhered to the manufacturers cannot guarantee the safety of the oven.
  • Do not line the oven walls with aluminium foil or single-use protection available from stores. Aluminium foil or any other protection, in direct contact with the hot enamel, risks melting and deteriorating the enamel of the insides.
  • A low light around the central main switch could be present when the oven is off. This is a normal behavior. I can be removed just turning the plug upside down or swapping the supply terminals.


  • The manufacturers have no obligation to carry this out. If the assistance of the manufacturer is required to rectify faults arising from incorrect installation, this assistance is not covered by the guarantee. The installation instructions for professionally qualified personnel must be followed. Incorrect installation may cause harm or injury to people, animals or belongings. The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for such harm or injury.
  • The kitchen unit in which the oven is to be fitted must be made of material resistant to temperatures of at least 70°C.
  • The oven can be located high in a column or under a worktop. Before fixing, you must ensure good ventilation in the oven space to allow proper circulation of the fresh air required for cooling and protecting the internal parts. Make the openings specified on last page according to the type of fitting.


  • Fit the oven into the space provided in the kitchen unit; it may be fitted underneath a work top or into an upright cupboard. Fix the oven in position by screwing into place, using the four fixing holes in the frame. (Fig. on last page).
  • To locate the fixing holes, open the oven door and look inside. To allow adequate ventilation, the measurements and distances indicated in the diagram on last page must be adhered to when fixing the oven.
  • Note: For ovens that are combined with a hob unit the instructions contained in the manual for the hob unit must be followed.


  • If the oven is to work properly, the kitchen housing must be suitable. The panels of the kitchen unit that are next to the oven must be made of a heat resistant material. Ensure that the glues of units made of veneered wood can withstand temperatures of at least 120 °C. Plastics or glues that cannot withstand such temperatures will melt and deform the unit. Once the oven has been lodged inside the unit, the electrical parts must be completely insulated. This is a legal safety requirement. All guards must be firmly fixed into place so that it is impossible to remove them without using special tools.
  • Remove the back of the kitchen unit to ensure an adequate current of air circulates around the oven. The hob must have a rear gap of at least 45 mm.


  • Plug into the power supply. Ensure first that there is a third contact that acts as earthing for the oven. The oven must be properly earthed.
  • If the model of oven is not fitted with a plug, fit a standard plug to the power cable. It must be able to bear the power supply indicated on the specifications plate. The earthing cable is yellow green. The plug must be fitted by a properly qualified person. If the socket and the plug are incompatible the socket must be changed by a properly qualified person. A properly qualified person must also ensure that the power cables can carry the current required to operate the oven.
  • An ON/OFF switch may also be connected to the power supply. The connections must take account of the current supplied and must comply with current legal requirements. The yellow-green earthing cable must not be governed by the ON/OFF switch. The socket or the ON/OFF switch used for connecting to the power supply must be easily accessible when the oven has been installed.
  • Important: During installation, position the power cable in such a way that it will not be subjected to temperatures of above 50°C at any point. The oven complies with safety standards set by the regulatory bodies. The oven is safe to use only if it has been adequately earthed in compliance with current legal requirements on wiring safety. You must ensure that the oven has been adequately earthed.
  • The manufacturers cannot be held responsible for any harm or injury to persons, animals or belongings caused by failure to properly earth the oven.
  • WARNING: the voltage and the supply frequency are showed on the rating plate (fig. on last page).
  • The cabling and wiring system must be able to bear the maximum electric power required by the oven. This is indicated on the specifications plate. If you are in any doubt at all, use the services of a professionally qualified person.

OVEN EQUIPMENT (according to the model)

  • It is necessary to do an initial cleaning of the equipment before the first use of each of them. Wash them with a sponge. Rinse and dry off.
  • The simple shelf can take mould and dishes.
  • The tray holder shelf is especially good for grilling things. Use it with the drip tray.CANDY-FCR-824-GH-E-Built-In-Electric-Oven-fig- \(3\)
  • The special profile of the shelves means they stay horizontal even when pulled right out. There is no risk of a dish sliding or spilling.
  • The drip tray catches the juices from grilled foods. It is only used with the Grill, Rotisserie, or Fan Assisted Grill ; remove it from the oven for other cooking methods.
  • Never use the drip tray as a roasting tray as this creates smoke and fat will spatter your oven making it dirty.
  • The pizza set is designed for pizza cooking. In order to obtain the best results the set must be used together with Pizza function.
  • Lateral wire grids – It located at both sides of the oven cavity. It holds metal grills and drip pans.

Removing and cleaning wire racks

  1. Remove the knurled nuts by turning them counter clockwise.
  2. Remove the wire racks by pulling them towards yourself.
  3. To clean the wire racks either put them in the dishwasher or use a wet sponge, ensuring that they are dried afterwards.
  4. After the cleaning process install the wire racks in reverse order.
  5. Replace the knurled nuts.CANDY-FCR-824-GH-E-Built-In-Electric-Oven-fig- \(7\)



  2. The oven features a new shelf safety system.

  3. This allows you to pull out the oven shelves when inspecting the food without danger of food spillages or shelves falling accidentally out of the oven.

  4. To remove the shelves pull out and lift.


  6. Grilling makes it possible to give food a rich brown colour quickly. For browning we recommend that you insert the grill onto the fourth level, depending on the proportions of the food (see fig. page 7).

  7. Almost all food can be cooked under the grill except for very lean game and meat rolls.

  8. Meat and fish that are going to be grilled should first be lightly doused with oil.


    • Never use abrasive cleaners, wire wool or sharp objects to clean the glass oven door.
    • Clean the stainless steel and enameled surfaces with warm, soapy water or with suitable brand products. On no account use abrasive powders that may damage surfaces and ruin the oven’s appearance. It is very important to clean the oven each time that it is used. Melted fat is deposited on the sides of the oven during cooking. The next time the oven is used this fat could cause unpleasant odours and might even jeopardise the success of the cooking. Use hot water and detergent to clean; rinse out thoroughly.
    • To make this chore unnecessary all models can be lined with catalytic self-cleaning panels: these are supplied as an optional extra (see the section SELF-CLEANING OVEN WITH CATALYTIC LINING).
    • Use detergents and abrasive metal pads like «brillo pads» for the stainless steel grills.
    • The glass surfaces as the top, oven door and warming compartment door must be cleaned when they are cold. Damage that occurs to them because this rule was not adhered to are not covered by the guarantee.
      To replace the interior light:
      switch off the mains power supply and unscrew bulb. Replace with an identical bulb that can withstand very high temperatures
    Before calling the Service Centre

    • If the oven is not working, we recommend that:
      you check that the oven is properly plugged into the power supply.

    • If the cause of the fault cannot be detected:
      disconnect the oven from the mains, do not touch the oven and call the after sales service.
      Before calling the Service Centre remember to make a note of the serial number on the specifications plate (see fig. On last page). The oven is supplied with a guarantee certificate that ensures that it will be repaired free of charge by the Service Centre
