5. Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (outlet pump is blocked, filter or drain hose are clogged), proceed as follows to empty out the machine: â¢ pull out the plug from the power socket; â¢ close the water tap; â¢ if necessary, wait until the water has cooled down; â¢ place a bowl on the floor under the filter; â¢ slightly loosen the filter to let the water come out slowly; â¢ at the end screw the filter again.
6. Frost precautions
If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop below 0Â°C, proceed as follows: â¢ Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap. â¢ Place the end of the drain hose and that of the inlet hose in a bowl placed on the floor. â¢ Select programme âDâ (draining) and run it until the machine stops. â¢ Turn the programme selector dial to O. â¢ Switch the machine OFF by depressing button â¢ Screw the water inlet hose back on and put the drain hose back in its place. By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding the formation of ice and, consequently, breakage of the affected parts. When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature is above 0Â°C. .
