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.
❏ It is recommended that you follow the
manufacturer’s instructions concerning the
air expulsion tube (see "Preparing the
appliance before use") in order to prevent
efficiency loss and unnecessary energy
consumption.

All models are fitted with a basic filter which
needs to be cleaned regularly, Fig. 19. The
filter is accessed by pressing the tab at the top
and removing it from its housing, Fig. 20. The
filter is cleaned under a cold tap, dried and
replaced.
Cleaning the appliance
❏ For safety reasons, you should unplug the
appliance from the mains electricity supply
before cleaning.
❏ The appliance can be cleaned with a cloth
or sponge, slightly warm water and a mild
detergent.
❏ Never use hot water (more than 40ºC),
bleach, petrol, acid, scouring pads, brushes
or strong detergents. Prevent water from
entering the appliance.
❏ Do not clean the appliance with a water
hose or compressed air.
Cleaning and changing the purifying
filters
To change the purifying filter, it is first
necessary to open the front flap on the
appliance (it is not necessary to remove it). To
do this, press the upper clip inside the door,
Fig 18, and pull the flap. The flap can be
opened up to the safety stop without risk of
falling.
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.

• Insert the double active filter + positioner in
the basic filter as shown on Fig. 22,
remembering that it must be housed on the
lower studs first.
1° Lift the flap until it comes out of its
lower supports, (Fig. 23: a).
2° Position the plastic leg in the front
groove on the appliance (in T position)
and slide it down to the safety stop,
(Fig. 23: b).
3° fit the lower studs in the front stops on
the appliance making sure that the
plastic leg fitted in the previous step
does not come out of position,
(Fig. 23: c).
When finished, the user should make sure
that the flap is fitted properly and does not
fall when opened again. (The door opens
up to the safety stop). If not fitted properly,
repeat steps 1° and 2° again.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Transportation requirements
The appliance is fitted with wheels to make it
easier to move around. It can be tilted, if
necessary, in order to make transportation
easier. You should not turn the appliance back
on again for a minimum period of one hour
after performing this procedure.
❏ Before tilting it, empty the condensed water
from the internal tank by extracting the
water drainage pipe from its housing and
removing the plug, Fig. 24. Place a
receptacle (or the appliance’s removable
tank) at the end of the water drainage pipe
to collect the condensed water or lead the
pipe to the nearest drain. Do not forget to
replace the plug and reinsert the pipe in its
housing when the tank is empty.
Fig. 24
❏ To do this, bend the tube towards the back
of the appliance and secure it with the
diffusion hook, Figs. 25 and 26.
Storage requirements
When the appliance is out of use for a long
period, set the expulsion tube to parking
position so that the appliance takes up as little
space as possible.

Things to check before calling the Technical Service
General requirements for operation
What to do if ...
... the appliance does not work ...
❏ Check that it is plugged in properly.
❏ Check that the mains electricity supply is
working. Check the fuse box.
❏ Set the thermostat to its minimum
temperature position.
... the appliance does not work and the
symbol indicating that the condensed
water tank is full is displayed on the
screen ...
❏ Set the appliance on a flat surface. If the
symbol does not disappear, empty the water
tank. Make sure that the tank is refitted
properly afterwards. (See instructions in
"Cooling").
... the appliance does not reduce room
temperature sufficiently ...
❏ Check the joins on the hot air expulsion
tube.
❏ Make sure that the expulsion tube is not too
bent and that it is not extended to more
than 140 cm.
❏ Make sure that the plug is fitted on the
drainage water pipe.
❏ Fit the suction pad to close the window as
far as possible.
❏ Lower blinds to reduce direct sunlight.
... the fault symbol is displayed on the
screen ...
❏ Get in touch with an authorised dealer,
customer service or the manufacturer’s
Technical Service Network.
... there is water on the control panel grille
or on the basic filter housing ...
❏ There is no cause for concern. This is
normal.
Noise
... the appliance makes a lot of noise ...
❏ Some noise is normal and other types of
noise can be solved easily. You need to be
able to distinguish between these types of
noise:
Perfectly normal noise
❏ The sound of water flowing in cycles is due
to the pump, which circulates the water to
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
❏ Make sure that the air expulsion tube and
the diffusion and collection sleeves are
fitted properly onto the appliance.
❏ Make sure that the air intakes and outlets
on the appliance are free of obstacles.
❏ Make sure that the appliance is not in direct
contact with furniture or other appliances.
The air output may be flowing directly onto
these and thereby increasing the noise
level.
Any other type of fault or repair work
should be dealt with by a specialised
Technician. Get in touch with your
authorised dealer, customer service or the
Technical Service Network.
