ENGLISH 29 14.2 Positioning and levelling • Install the appliance on a flat hard floor. • Make sure that carpets do not stop the air circulation below the appliance. • Make sure that the appliance does not touch the wall or other units • Loosen or tighten the feet to adjust the level. A correct adjustment of the appliance level prevents the vibration, noise and the movement of the appliance when in operation. .e u / x4 ev ic em an ua ls • The appliance must be level and stable. .d CAUTION! Do not put cardboard, wood or equivalent materials below the appliance feet to adjust the level. w w w Make sure that there is sufficient access after the installation for possible repairs by a qualified person. Installation on suspended flooring Suspended wooden floors are particularly susceptible to vibration. To help prevent vibration we recommend you place a waterproof wood panel, at least 15 mm thick under the appliance, secured to at least 2 floor beams with screws, the wood panel must extend beyond the front feet. If possible install the appliance in one of the corners of the room, where the floor is more stable 30 www.aeg.com 14.3 The inlet hose • Connect the hose to the appliance.
