SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

IMPORTANT TO BE READ AND OBSERVED
Before using the dryer carefully
read, Health and Safety and
Use and Care guides .
Keep these instructions close
at hand for future reference .
YOUR SAFETY AND SAFETY
OF OTHERS IS VERY
IMPORTANT.
This manual and the dryer
itself provide important safety
warnings, to be read and
observed at all times .
This is the safety alert symbol .
This symbol alerts you to
potential hazards that can kill
or hurt you and others .
All safety messages will follow
the safety alert symbol or the
word DANGER or WARNING .
These words mean:
DANGER
Indicates a hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, will
cause serious injury .
WARNING
Indicates a hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, could
cause serious injury .
All safety warnings give
specific details of the potential
risk presented and indicate
how to reduce risk of injury,
damage and electric shock
resulting from improper use of
the dryer . Carefully observe the
108
following instructions .
Failure to observe these
instructions may lead to risks .
The Manufacturer declines any
liability for injury to persons
or animals or damage to
property if these advices and
precautions are not respected .
Very young (0-3 years) and
young children (3-8 years)
shall be kept away unless
continuously supervised .
Children from 8 years old
and above and persons with
reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities or lack of
experience and knowledge
can use this dryer only if
they are supervised or have
been given instructions on
safe appliance use and if
they understand the hazards
involved . Children shall not
play with the dryer . Cleaning
and user maintenance shall not
be made by children without
supervision .
Items that have been soiled
with substances such as
cooking oil, acetone, alcohol,
petrol, kerosene, spot
removers, turpentine, waxes
and wax removers should be
washed in hot water with an
extra amount of detergent
before being dried in the
tumble dryer .
Items such as foam rubber
(latex foam), shower caps,
waterproof textiles, rubber
backed articles and clothes or
pillows fitted with foam rubber
pads should not be dried in the
tumble dryer .
Remove all objects from
pockets such as lighters and
matches .
Do not use the tumble dryer if
chemicals have been used for
cleaning .
Oil-soaked items ignite
spontaneously, especially
when exposed to heat sources
such as in a tumble dryer . The
items become warm, causing
an oxidation reaction in the
oil . Oxidation creates heat . If
the heat cannot escape, the
item can become hot enough
to catch fire . Piling, stacking or
storing oil-soaked items can
prevent heat from escaping and
so create a fire hazard .
WARNING
Never stop a tumble dryer
before the end of the drying
cycle unless all items are quickly
removed and spread out so
that the heat is dissipated .
The last phase of the drying
cycle is done without heat
(cool down phase), to assure
that the laundry stays at a
temperature level which is not
leading to a damaging of the
laundry .
If you want to stack the dryer
on a washing machine, first
contact our After-Sales Service
to verify if this is possible .
Stacking of a dryer is only
admitted if the dryer is safely
