I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.

Cleaning and maintenance
Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged (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 taps; â¢ if necessary, wait until the water has cooled; â¢ place a bowl on the floor; â¢ put the drain hose end into the bowl and let the water come out. Should it not be possible to have access to the drain hose because, for example the appliance is built in the kitchen furniture, slightly loosen the drain filter after placing a bowl on the floor to let the water come out slowly. At the end screw the filter again.
If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop below 0Â°C, proceed as follows: â¢ Close the water taps and unscrew the water inlet hoses from the taps. â¢ Place the end of the drain hose and that of the inlet hoses in a bowl placed on the floor. â¢ Select the draining programme and run it until the machine stops. â¢ Remove the plug from the socket. â¢ Screw the water inlet hoses 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.
