* Depending on model and options
Maintenance
Note
u Always store the replacement filter cartridges in a cool and
dry place, in their original, sealed condition.
u BRITA filter cartridges may only be used with tap water
supplied by the water utility. Tap water satisfies the basic
legal requirements for drinking water quality. Where an official order in force to boil tap water, this shall also apply to
BRITA filtered water. Once the order has ended, please
clean the whole of the water filter unit (water tank and filter
insert) and insert a new cartridge.
u Please only filter cold tap water.
u Regularly clean the water filter unit (water tank and filter
insert).
u Consider that it is generally recommend to boil tap water for
certain categories of persons (e.g. immuno-compromised
people, babies). This also applies to filtered water.
Depending on the water used, devices with stainless steel
heating elements must be used for boiling the water. Especially persons with a sensitivity to nickel should pay attention
to this point.
u For hygiene reasons, the filter material of the cartridge must
be specially treated with silver. A small quantity of silver can
be released into the water. This is in line with the recommendations of the World Health Organisation (WHO).
u During filtering, there may initially be a slight increase in the
potassium content. However, a litre of BRITA MAXTRA
filtered water contains less potassium, for example, than an
apple! If you suffer from kidney disease and/or have to stick
to a special, low-potassium diet, we recommend consulting
your doctor first.
u If you are going on holiday or not intending to use the water
dispenser for an extended period, remove the cartridge,
pour out all of the water, and place the cartridge back inside
the empty filter insert of the water filter unit, loose. BRITA
recommends changing the filter cartridge upon your return.
Before resuming use of the water filter unit, take the
cartridge out of the filter insert, clean it and the whole water
filter unit thoroughly, and repeat the steps for using the
BRITA filter cartridge in the chapter Water dispenser.
u BRITA filtered water is a comestible product intended for
human consumption. It should be used within one day.
u As with any natural product, the components of the
MAXTRA MicroporeFilter are subject to natural variations.
This can lead to light carbon debris getting into the filtered
water, which is noticeable in the form of small black particles. These particles do not have any negative impact on
health. If swallowed, they will exit the body unchanged in the
natural way. If you discover carbon particles in your filtered
water, we recommend flushing out the cartridge until there
are no more particles escaping from it.
u We ask for your understanding that we must reject all forms
of warranty or liability, where our recommendations on the
use and replacement of BRITA filter cartridges have not
been observed.
Note
u For information on use in Germany or Italy, please read the
information in the relevant BRITA brochure in German or
Italian.
u Used BRITA MAXTRA water filter cartridges can be
disposed of with household waste.
6.2 Defrosting with NoFrost
The NoFrost system automatically defrosts the appliance.
Refrigerator compartment:
The defrost water evaporates due to the compressor heat.
Drops of water on the rear wall are perfectly normal.
u Regularly clean the drain opening to allow the water to flow
away (see 6.3) .
