It is not applicable to:
- microwave combination ovens;
- small cavities ovens (3.2);
- oven cavities not provided with devices to detect and control the temperature for the preparation of food;
- cooking modes others than defined in 3.1.1 and 3.1.2;
- ovens connected to a chimney in which the gas energy for cooking provides, by design, also space and/or water heating;
- appliances designed for use with gases of the third family only.
