Observing drinking water quality
Dispensing ice/water
All materials used in the drinks dispenser are
odourless and tasteless.
▯
Select the ice and water dispenser button (water,
crushed ice or ice cubes).
If the water has an aftertaste, this may be caused by:
▯
Keep pressing the button until the required
quantity is in the glass.
▯
Mineral and chlorine content of the drinking
water.
▯
Material of the domestic water line
and connection line.
▯
Freshness of the drinking water. If water has not
been dispensed for a long time, the water may
have a “stale” taste. In this case fill approx.
15 glasses of water and throw away.
Dispensing ice
We recommend that you regularly dispense a little
fresh water from the water maker and that you do not
switch off the appliance. This will ensure that the best
water quality is retained.
Operating the ice maker
Dispensing water
As soon as the freezer compartment has reached its
freezing temperature, ice cube production starts. After
2–3 hours the ready ice cubes are automatically
discharged into the ice cube container.
▯
The water from the water dispenser is cooled
to a palatable temperature. If you would like
the water colder, place ice cubes in the glass
before dispensing the water.
▯
When dispensing fairly large amounts of water,
the dispensed water may become warmer.
Notes
Note
The appliance produces more ice if you lower the
freezer compartment temperature. This will slightly
increase the energy consumption of your appliance.
Occasionally ice cubes will freeze together and block
the dispenser:
