Maintenance
18
Regular maintenance, such as
cleaning, is the responsibility of
the user. To achieve the best
result, follow the instructions
to the right. Contact your
Bang & Olufsen retailer to
determine recommendations
for regular maintenance.
Do not expose batteries to excessive
heat such as sun­shine, fire or the
like.
Changing the batteries
If the batteries are low, Display 1
will show a ‘BATTERY LOW’ alert in
idle mode approximately one week
before the batteries run out of
power. After ‘BATTERY LOW’ is
shown in the display the IR-trans­
mitter is disabled, and the loudest
alarm level is reduced.
The alarm clock requires three
batteries. We recommend that you
use 1.5 volt (size AA) Alkaline
batteries only. Do not use any
rechargeable batteries!
Replace the batteries as shown in
the illustration.
Time settings are maintained for
approximately 4 minutes without
batteries.
Cleaning
Wipe dust off the surfaces using a
dry, soft cloth. To remove stains or
dirt, use a soft, damp cloth and a
solution of water and mild
detergent, such as washing-up
liquid.
19
The battery tool can be kept in the
wall bracket for future use.
