Important Safety Information

1Important Safety Information

The safety of AEG electrical appliances complies with the established technical principles and statutory equipment safety regulations. Nevertheless, as manufacturer we have to draw your attention to the following safety instructions.

General safety

Repairs of the dryer may be carried out only by trained personnel. Incompetently carried out repairs can entail considerable hazards for the user. Please get in touch with our customer service or with an authorised AEG dealer when repair is necessary.

Before commencing operation please make sure that the nominal voltage and type of supply specified on the type plate of the appliance correspond to the actual nominal voltage and supply type at the place of utilisation. The fuse rating is also specified on the type plate.

Never operate the dryer when the mains cable is damaged or when the operator control mask, work plate or base shrouding are damaged such that there is direct access to the interior of the appliance.

Switch-off the dryer before carrying out any cleaning, care and maintenance tasks! You are quite safe if you disconnect the mains plug from the power outlet or – if the electrical connection is permanent – if you switch-off the circuit breaker in the fusebox or screw the fuse cartridge right out of its holder.

Never pull on the cable to disconnect the mains plug from the power outlet. Always grasp and pull-out the plug.

Don’t lean on the opened door; this could make the appliance fall over.

Don’t use a water jet to spray-down the appliance. Danger of electric shock!

The covering hood for the filament lamp bulb for drum illumination must be screwed-on.

When closing the door, please check that the washing is not caught in it.

If you interrupt the drying process to take out laundry, bear in mind that the laundry and the drum could be hot.

Adaptors and extension cables must not be used. There is risk of fire because of overheating!

5

Important Safety Information

Safety of children

Children are often not aware of the dangers involved when handling electrical equipment. Therefore provide the necessary supervision of children when operating the appliance and do not let children play with the dryer – there is a danger that children could become trapped inside the appliance.

Packaging parts (e.g. films, styropore) can be dangerous for children. Danger of suffocation! Keep packaging parts out of reach of children.

Make sure that children or small animals do not climb into the drum of the dryer. For this purpose keep the door of the dryer closed when the appliance is not in use.

Utilisation in accordance with the intended purpose

Conversions or modifications of the dryer are forbidden for safety reasons.

Use the dryer only to dry ordinary household laundry! The manufacturer accepts no liability for any damage resulting from incorrect operation or utilisation for an unintended purpose.

Dry only laundry which has been washed in water. In particular, textiles which have been treated with inflammable cleaning agents and solvents (petrol-ether, alcohol, stain remover and similar materials) must not be dried in the dryer. Danger of fire! Explosion hazard!

Laundry items containing sponge rubber or rubber-like materials must not be dried in the dryer. Danger of fire!

Washing that is in poor condition (heavily worn) and items with loose fillings (cushions) that could break open must not be dried or refreshed. There is a risk of fire!

Washing with rigid components (foot mats) will cover the air slots; the slots will also be covered if the drum is overfilled. Observe the maximum load of 5 kg. There is a risk of overheating which could cause a fire!

Only dry washing that does not contain any explosive objects (fire lighters, spray cans). There is a risk of fire or an explosion!

Clean the fluff filter after each drying procedure.

Clean the condenser regularly.

In the case of washer / dryer tower combinations, do not place any objects on the dryer during use as they could drop down.

6

General Information

Installation and connection

Check the dryer for Transportation damage. Never connect-up a damaged appliance! Contact your supplier if the appliance is damaged.

If the tumble dryer has to be carried, first remove the plinth!

Do not set-up the dryer in frost-endangered rooms!

Set-up the dryer horizontal!

If the dryer is placed adjacent to a gas, coal or electric cooking stove, interpose a thermally insulating non-combustible plate between the dryer and the stove (dimensions: 85x57,5cm).

Do not place the dryer on high-pile carpet floors!

This would hinder air circulation at the ventilation slots!

The electric power plug connector of the appliance must remain accessible even after installation.

Check that the tumble dryer is not standing on the mains cable.

The technical conditions of the electric power supply company for making fixed connections of electrical appliances to the mains require that such connections may only be made by an authorised electrician.

3 General Information

Starched washing leaves traces of starch on the drum and therefore should not be placed in the tumble dryer.

If you exceed the maximum load stipulated in the program table your washing is more likely to get creased! For very delicate fabrics you should only fill in 1.5kg washing at the most.

For your information: 70 per cent of fabric wear is caused by being worn, 20 per cent by washing and only 10 per cent by being dried in a tumble dryer. As the fabric is worn down, fluff gathers in the fluff filter. When using a tumble dryer, only approx. 0.03g fluff per kilogramme washing is produced.

7

Disposal

2 Disposal

Packaging

Dispose of the packaging material!

Dispose of the packaging material of your tumble dryer correctly. All the packaging materials used are harmless to the environment and can be recycled.

• Plastic parts are marked with standard international abbreviations:

– >PE<

for polyethylene, e.g. sheet wrapping material

– >PS<

for polystyrene, e.g. padding material (always CFC-free)

– >POM<

for polyoxymethylene, e.g. plastic clips

Cardboard packaging is manufactured from recycled paper and should be deposited in the waste paper collection for recycling.

Disposal of the old appliance!

When you eventually stop using your tumble dryer please bring it to the nearest recycling centre or to your dealer who will take it back for a small fee.

1 Warning! When disposing of the tumble dryer, pull out the plug, cut off the flex, dispose of the plug and remaining flex and destroy the door lock. This hinders children from locking themselves in and endangering their lives.

The materials can be recycled in accordance with their markings. Standard tools (crosshead screwdriver, hammer) are sufficient to dismantle the old appliance.

Environmental protection tips

2 Environmental protection tips

Your laundry will become light and soft in the tumble dryer even without a fabric softening agent.

Loosen your laundry before loading it into the dryer. This helps to prevent lengthy running times and creasing. Ensure your laundry is well spun.

Remove as much water as possible from the washing before drying! This is based on the principle: the better you spin the washing before drying the more economical the dryer is.

In the following table we give an overview of specific electric consumption data depending on the spinning speed. This information is valid for 5kg laundry dried with the program COTTONS CUPBOARD DRY (KATOEN KAST-DROOG):

Cleaning and maintenance

Cleaning and maintenance

Cleaning the condenser

1 Important! When the CONDENSER (WARMTEWISSELAR) display lights, it is essential to clean the condenser. Otherwise your dryer might suffer damage. In addition energy consumption will be increased if the condenser unit is covered with fluff.

For information on cleaning the condenser see section "Drying, cleaning the condenser".

Cleaning the filter area

1 Important! A small amount of fluff may reach the area around the filter in spite of the fluff filter. Therefore you should clean the entire filter area from time to time, or at least every three months.

0 Remove the fluff filter.

0 Hold the filter lid by the top and pull it forwards until it is released from both holders.

0 Remove the fluff from the entire filter area

– preferably with a vacuum cleaner.

0 Press both pins of the filter lid into the holders on the door until they click in.

0 Reinsert the fluff filter.

0Press against the filter lid until it clicks into the lock.

25

Cleaning and maintenance

Cleaning the drum

1Warning! Do not clean the stainless steel drum with abrasive detergents or steel wool!

Fabric softeners or lime in the water can cause a scarcely visible deposit to form on the drum. The dryer is then no longer reliably able to recognise how dry the washing is. When the washing is removed from the dryer it will be damper than you expect.

0Wipe the inside of the drum and the drum fins with white vinegar to avoid a build up of residues/deposits effecting the sensors. This is particularly important if you regulary use fabric conditioning sheets or dry starched items in the dryer.

Cleaning the panel and operating parts

1 Warninggents. ! Do not use household furniture polish or aggressive deter-

0Wipe over the panel and operating parts with a damp cloth. Only use warm water.

Cleaning the door seal

0Rub the door seal with a damp cloth immediately after the drying procedure.

Service

In the chapter "Something not working" some disturbances have been summarised, which you can solve yourself. If you do not find any helpful information there, please contact your local customer service centre. It is nearby and if necessary can reach you quickly.

(Addresses and phone numbers can be found in the Warranty Conditions/Service Departments)

Be well prepared before you phone. This facilitates the diagnosis and the decision as to whether a customer service visit is necessary. With our checklist you can gather important information before making your call:

Make a note of the PNC number and the S number. They are both on the rating plate behind your tumble dryer’s door.

PNC ................................

S-No ................................

If possible establish:

How is the disturbance evident?

Under what circumstances does the disturbance occur?

When do you incur costs even during the warranty period?

if you could have solved the disturbance yourself with the help of the Troubleshooting table (see section "Something not working"),

if the customer service engineer has to make several journeys because he did not receive all the necessary important information before his visit and now e.g. has to fetch spares. You can avoid these extra trips by preparing your telephone call properly in the way described above.
