Environmental protection
Recommendations for the disposal
of packaging
❏ Respect the environment when disposing of
the packaging your appliance comes
packed in.
❏ Our products are carefully packed for
transportation. All of the material used in
our packaging is environmentally friendly
(the cardboard is manufactured from used
paper) and may be recycled.
❏ Recycling packaging helps conserve raw
materials and reduces the amount of waste
produced in the world.
❏ Actively help protect the environment by
disposing of packaging properly. Take it to
your nearest local council disposal point or
it may be possible to return it to your
supplier.
Recommendations for the disposal
of your old appliance
❏ Unplug your appliance from the mains
electricity supply and cut the power cable.
❏ Appliances of this kind include both
recyclable material, which may be used
again, and hazardous products (such as
heavy metals and liquid refrigerants), which
may pollute the soil or the atmosphere.
Actively help protect the environment by
ensuring that your old appliance is disposed
of in accordance with environmentally
friendly practices. Dispose of your appliance
at an official disposal or recycling point (ask
your local council where the nearest
disposal point is). Appliances of this kind
contain refrigerants which must be disposed
of in accordance with current regulations.
❏ This appliance is labelled in accordance
with European Directive 2002/96/EG
concerning used electrical and electronic
appliances (waste electrical and electronic
equipment - WEEE).
The guideline determines the framework for
the return and recycling of used appliances
as applicable throughout the EU.
Recommendations for saving energy
Your appliance consumes energy when in use.
The consumption of energy produces an
environmental impact. Energy consumption
can be reduced enhancing the efficiency of
your appliance.
❏ Turn your air appliance off when it is not
needed.
❏ Select an ideal temperature; excessively
low temperatures result in high energy
consumption.
❏ Locate your appliance away from possible
heat sources (sunlight, etc.) and in a
position with good air circulation.
❏ Ensure that your appliance is installed
properly. The energy consumed can be cut
by up to 30% by reducing the entry of heat
into the room with awnings, blinds or
curtains on glazed surfaces.
❏ Use the accessories supplied with your
appliance and the specific accessories
described in “Description of accessories” in
order to minimise the entry of air from
outdoors. When using accessories which
require holes to be drilled in walls or
windows, the hole should be as precise as
possible and sealed with silicon, plaster or
similar material to prevent air from flowing
through any gaps.

ºC
Fig. 19
During air conditioning, some of the
condensed water produced evaporates
automatically and is expelled outdoors
together with the expelled air through the hot
air expulsion tube.
In conditions of extreme humidity, the
appliance accumulates condensed water in an
internal tank. When a certain level is reached
an indicator light, Fig. 3, comes on indicating
that the condensed water tank is full and
needs to be emptied. When this happens, the
appliance stops cooling the air in the room
until the water is drained, as explained in
“Transportation requirements”, Fig. 7.
❏ It is recommended that you turn the
appliance off while draining the water.
Warning!
Remember that when the appliance is
turned off, it is necessary to wait for
approximately 3 minutes before turning it
back on again. This period of time is
required in order to ensure correct
appliance operation.

Warning!
Do not try to clean the basic filter in a
dishwasher. The plastic on the basic filter
is not suitable for dishwashers and is
unable to withstand the high temperatures
involved in washing programmes. It will
deform and may even break.
The purifying filter supplied with the appliance
(according to models) is to be fitted by the
user (See “Fitting the purifying filter (double
active”).
The purifying filter further purifies the air in the
room which passes through the appliance.
When the purifying filter is fitted, the
appliance’s cooling capacity may drop slightly.
This is particularly the case when the filter is
saturated or damaged. It is, therefore,
recommended that you check and change the
filter at least once a year.
(These accessories are available for purchase
from the Manufacturer's Official Technical
Service and authorised distributors). See
“Description of accessories”.

enhance the power of the appliance.
❏ A dull, humming sound is inevitable due to
the compressor.
❏ A faint, whistling sound is due to the
refrigerant passing through the thinner
pipes on the appliance when the
compressor starts up.
❏ A short clicking sound is produced when the
pump connects and disconnects or when
the regulator connects or disconnects the
electronics system.
Easy-to-solve noises
