On the right hand knob, there are eight options including
#2 has always been puzzling me and I've assumed the rest mean something like the list below. Please tell me if I'm wrong about these too as I remember hearing some ovens have a "back element" for use with the fan.
- Light only
Fan with ???
- Fan with only the exposed grill/broil element.
(AKA "Pizza mode")
Fan with only the bottom element.
- Fan with
top and bottom elements without the exposed grill/broil element? (I'm not actually sure about this one. I guess this could mean something like"back element only" , if there is a back element in this)
- Only the exposed grill/broil element.
- Top and bottom elements
without the exposed grill/broil element.
My best guess for #2 has been that it's similar to the the
S(super?) function on some ovens (all heating elements including the broiler at the same time, for rapid preheating of the oven itself) but I'm not sure as I don't know where the oven's user manual is and can't find a model name or number in order to find it online. (No Cylinda oven manual I've found online feature symbol #2 or anything similar to it)
In my experience,option #5 heats the oven up faster than #7 so I have used #5 for preheating, but I haven't actually tested whether this is actually true or not. It would be nice to know whether #2 is the function specifically for this use.
EDIT: I found the model number, it's
A46010003. This only led me to a spare parts website, but that site had the name
CYLINDA IB 30 beside the number. With this name, I was able to find a Swedish-only user manual (pdf) with the exact symbols.
The functions according to that manual (and some quick maths) get us to:
With limited Swedish proficiency I gathered that #2 is for drying stuff with the door left slightly ajar, and that #5 is True Convection in its strictest sense, using just the back heating element.
