INSTALLATION - ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
"The installation must conform to the standard directives".
CANDY declines all responsibility for any damage that may be caused by unsuitable or
unreasonable use.
Warning :
• Always check before any electrical operation, the supply tension shown on the electricity
meter, the adjustment of the circuit-breaker, the continuity of the connection to earth to
the installation and that the fuse is suitable.
• The electrical connection to the installation should be made via a socket with a plug
with earth, or via an omni pole cut-out switch with an opening gap of at least 3 mm.
If the appliance has a socket outlet, it must be installed so that the socket outlet is
accessible.
CANDY cannot be held responsible for any accidents resulting from the use of an
appliance which is not connected to earth, or with a faulty earth connection continuity.
• Any queries regarding the power supply cord should be referred to After Sales
Service or a qualified technician.
Warning! This appliance must be earthed. In the absence of adequate earthing you
will notice that when touching the metal parts of your appliance an electrical
dispersion can be felt due to the presence of a radio interference suppressor.
A power cord is supplied with the Trio which allows it to be connected only to a power
supply of 230 V between phases, or between phase and neutral. Connect to a 10/16 Amp
socket.
SETTING THE IDDLE FLAME
If the gas type has been altered, the stability of the flame in the minimum flow must be
checked and set by adjusting the by-pass screw.
To access the top burner by-pass screw, remove the control panel knobs. At first, pull the
disc to the front and remove the combined control knob.
a) Butane- propane gas : the setting is done by screwing right in (without forcing) the
by-pass screw whose calibrated hole provides the minimum flow.
b) Natural gas :
. unscrew the by-pass screw one turn,
. replace the combined control-knob, light the burner and set to low flame,
. remove the combined control-knob again, screw the by-pass screw until a reduced flame is
obtained, staying stable when going from high to low position.
. replace the combined control-knob.
Warning : Never loosen the others screws !

THE GAS BURNER
SOME TIPS ....
• Pans with curved, ridged or warped bottoms are not recommended.
• Avoid boiling food too intensely. Food is not cooked any more quickly this way. In fact, it is
subjected to severe agitation, which may cause the food to lose some of its flavour.
• To save gas, make sure that the flames do not overlap the bottom of the pan.
• Do not use the gas burner with an empty pan.
Caution : when the burners are not in service, the general gas supply tap should always be
turned off.
The various burners : the hob has burners of different dimensions. You should be aware of
the differences in power of each burner.
• use the powerful burner to bring to boil, to fry meat, and in general for any food that should
be cooked quickly.
• use the semi-rapid for slow cooking or for sauces.
• use the small burner for small pans and also for slow cooking.
For a proper use of the burners, choose pans that match the dimensions given below:
ultra-rapid Ø22 cm, semi-rapid Ø12 cm, rapid Ø16 cm, auxiliary mijorose Ø10 cm.
USE : each burner is fitted with a thermocouple fast safety. It is a device allowing the automatic
cut-out of the gas supplying on the burner, in case the flame dies out accidentally.
• Turn on the gas tap,
• A symbol next to each control knob indicates which burner is lit.
• Press and turn the knob to position
keeping it pressed
to produce sparks which in turn ignite he burner. Keep the
pressure on the control knob a few seconds to permit the
releasing of the safety device.
• Set the flame according to your cooking requirements. Intermediate positions are available
between the two positions and settings on the control knob.
• To turn the flame out, turn the control knob back to stop position.
Please note : if there is a power cut, the burner can be ignited by pressing and turning the
knob to position
and holding a naked flame to the burner.
36
OVEN EQUIPMENT
It is necessary to do an initial cleaning of the equipment before the first use of each of
them. Wash them with a sponge. Rinse and dry off.
• THE SHELF : it is for holding dishes, plates, and meat
joints when cooking with the grill. It is fitted with rails
which enables the drip tray to be slid into.
Thanks to its special shape, the shelf always remains horizontal, even when pulled to its fullest
extent towards the front of the oven, thus avoiding the risk of dishes sliding off or tipping over.
• THE DRIP TRAY : collects meat and grilling juices
during roasting or grilling. It can be put on the shelf, or slid
under it.
Unless used with the grill, the drip tray must not be stored in the oven while in use.
Never use the drip tray as a roasting tray. This would cause smoke to be produced, fat to be
splashed and the oven would become rapidly stained.
• THE ROTISSERIE is equipped with a skewer and an handle, two forks and a skewer
support.
When the oven is in use, any unused accessories should be removed.
• THE CIRCUIT-BREAKER TIMER
It takes in charge the functioning of the oven, for between 1 and 120
minutes, with immediate start and automatic stop. When the time is
up, the timer automatically cuts off the power supply to the oven.
However, the oven could be used without programming. In this case,
turn the control knob to the Hand position
.
Nota : to set a time, turn the control knob clockwise up to the 120 minutes mark and then turn
it back to the required time.
THE OVEN "Use"
VERY IMPORTANT : the oven and the dishwaher cannot be used at the same time.
To use the oven, you have to close the dishwasher.
IMPORTANT : always keep small children away from the Trio while it is in use.
If the Trio is fitted with a lid, lift it up before use.
37
THE COOKING METHODS
• Conventional cooking
: the top and bottom heating elements are used together.
This method is ideal for all traditional roasting and baking, for sealing red meats, roast beef,
leg of lamb, bread, flaky pastry. Preheat the oven for about ten minutes and place the cooking
meat in the mid shelf position.
• Grill
: using the top-heating element. Success is guaranteed for mixed grills, kebabs
and "gratin dishes". Five minutes preheating is required to get the element hot.
• Rotisserie
: using the top-heating element in conjunction with the rotisserie providing
the real flavour of a traditional roast.
. Remove all accessories from the oven.
. Place the drip tray on the oven bottom.
. Skewer the food to be cooked and centre it between the two forks.
. Fit the skewer into the bracket and slide the bracket and skewer on to the second level.
The end of the skewer will then be facing the slot in the drive mechanism.
. Fit the skewer into the drive mechanism.
• Rotisserie and conventional cooking
: using in the same time the rotisserie and the
conventional cooking. It allows to save time when cooking. However, you have to take care
of placing the shelf with rails up side down, with rails towards the top and place the drip tray
on it.
T °C
USE :
• Turn the control knob on the requesting
cooking method and set a temperature :
Conventional cooking
Temperature from 65°C to 230°C
Grill
Temperature 230°C
Rotisserie
Temperature 230°C
Rotisserie + Conventional cooking
Temperature 230°C
• Turn the control knob of the circuit-breaker timer to the Hand position or on a programming
duration.
• The regulator indicator light indicates that the thermostat is working. It goes
on and off regularly during the cooking time.
38
COOKING ADVICES
MEAT :
It is better not to salt meats until after cooking as salt encourages the meat to splatter fat.
This will dirty the oven and make a lot of smoke.
Joints of white meat, pork, veal, lamb and fish can be put into the oven cold. The cooking
time is longer than in a preheated oven, but it cooks through to the centre better as the heat
has more time to penetrate the joint.
CORRECT PRE-HEATING IS THE BASIS OF SUCCESSFUL RED MEAT COOKERY.
CAKE - PASTRIES AND BISCUITS :
Avoid using shiny moulds because they reflect heat and can spoil your cakes. If your cakes
brown too quickly, cover them with greaseproof paper or aluminium foil.
Caution : the correct way to use foil is with the shiny side inwards. If not the heat is reflected
by the shiny surface and does not penetrate the cake.
Avoid opening the door during the first 20 to 25 minutes of cooking : sponge cake, soufflés,
brioche, etc., will tend to fall.
You can check if cakes are done, by pricking the centre with a knife blade or metal knitting
needle. If the blade comes out nice and dry, your cake is ready, and you can stop the
cooking. If the blade comes out moist or with bits of cake attached, continue baking but
slightly lower the thermostat so that it finished off without burning.
The following instructions are for guidance only. You may wish to alter them according
to your own experience or your personal taste.
Pre-heating times :
. 20 minutes between 210 and 230°C
. 15 minutes between 140 and 190°C
. 10 minutes between 65 and 115°C

selected cycle (2 LEDS for COLD RINSE programme) will blink rapidly and an audible signal
will be activated.
In this case, turn the dishwasher off by pressing the On / Off button. After checking to make
sure the water inlet hose tap is open, that the drain hose is not bent and that the siphon or
filters are not clogged, re-start the selected program. If the anomaly persists, contact
Customer Service.
Important !
To ensure the correct operation of the anti-overflow safety device, it is recommended
not to move or to tilt the dishwasher during operation.
If it is necessary to move or to tilt the dishwaher, first make sure the washing cyle is
finished and that no water is left in the tank.
42
PRELIMINARY OPERATIONS AND CLEANING THE FILTER UNIT
The filtering system is composed of :
- a central filter cup which traps the largest food particles.
- a flat filter which continuously filters the washing water.
- the micro filter, situated under the flat filter, which traps the
smallest food particles ensuring a perfect rinse.
For best results, the filter unit should be checked and cleaned after each wash.
To remove the filter unit, simply grip the handle and lift the whole unit out.
The central cup is just resting on top for easy cleaning.
The dishwasher is fitted with a self cleaning micro filter, which only requires checking about
once every 15 days.
However, it is advisable to check after every wash, that the central cup and the flat filter
are not clogged.
NB : After cleaning the filters, make sure that they are correctly reassembled, one inside
the other, and that the flat filter is properly positioned at the bottom of the dishwasher.
A poor seating of the filter unit could have an adverse effect on the efficiency of the
appliance.
Important : Never use the dishwasher without filter.
LOADING DISHES
The basket has been carefully designed to make loading easy.
For good wash performance, remove any debris from the dishes (bones, tooth picks, the
remains of meat and vegetables) to avoid blocking the filters, water outlet and washing
arm nozzle and, as a result, reducing washing efficiency.
Warning ! to avoid any injury from cutlery with blades or sharp points, they can be placed
with the handles upwards.

43
LOADING THE DETERGENT
It is essential to use a detergent that is specifically designed for dishwashers either
in powder, liquid or tablet form.
Unsuitable detergents, (like those for washing up by hand) do not contain the proper
ingredients for use in a dishwasher and impede the efficient functioning.
Normal wash
The detergent dispenser is inside the door. The dispenser
lid should be closed before every wash.To open it, simply
press the catch. At the end of each wash cycle the lid is
always open and ready for the next time the dishwasher is
used.
The amount of detergent to be used varies according to
how dirty the dishes are and the type of wash. A 15g
dose is normally recommended. If the water is hard or the
dishes are exceptionally dirty, 25g of detergent should be
loaded. After pooring the detergent into the dispenser,
close the lid, since not all detergents are the same and the
instructions on the boxes of detergent can vary.
We should just like to remind users that too little detergent
does not clean the dishes properly whilst too much
detergent not only does not produce better results but is
also a waste. Do not use an excessive amout of detergent
and help limit damage to the environment at the same time.
Intensive washing
When using the intensive wash programme, add a second
dose of detergent of about 15g (1 soup spoonful).
This extra dose should be put in the curved part of the
dispenser when it is closed (see diagram).
FILLING THE RINSE AID DISPENSER
The rinse aid dispenser "B" is to the right of the detergent
dispenser and has a capacity of about 130 ml.
Open the lid and pour in enough liquid, which will last
several washes. Try to avoid overloading. Close the lid.
This additive, which is automatically released during
the last rinse cycle, helps the dishes to dry quickly and
prevents spots and stains forming. It is always advisable
to use rinse aid.
Check the rinse aid level through the indicator eye "A"
which is situated in the centre of the dispensers.
FULL - Dark
44
EMPTY - Bright
REGULATING THE RINSE AID (from 1 to 6).
The regulator control "B" is below the indicator and can be turned with the finger, the
recommended position is "3".
The hardness of the water can be judged by incrustation or by the level of dryness.
It is therefore important that the correct dosage of Rinse Aid is regulated to give the best
results.
After the wash,
. if streaks occur on the dishes, decrease the amount by one position.
. if whitish spots occur, increase the amount by one position.
LOADING THE SALT
The dishwasher is fitted with a softener that clears the water of lime which could cause scale
and damage the dishwasher.
On the bottom of the diswasher there is a salt dispenser for regenerating the softener.
The filter element of the softener unit should be recharged with a salt specially produced for
dishwashers. This salt can be bought either as tablets or as granules.
To add salt, unscrew the cap of the salt dispenser on
the bottom and refill the dispenser.
During this operation a little water will overflow but keep
adding salt until the dispenser is fill, clean the thread of
salt residue and retighten the cap.
If the dishwasher is not required straightaway, set
the programme Cold rinse ("Eco+Rapid, 2 Leds")
so that the salt solution which has overflowed is
discharged from the washing tank.
The salt dispenser has a capacity of between 1.5 kg for
efficient use of the appliance, it should be refilled from
time to time according to the regulation of the water
softener unit.
NB: it is necessary to add water until the dispenser overflows. Only install the dishwasher
completely filling the salt dispenser.

SOME PRACTICAL HINTS .... To carry out a wash programme with a full load of dishes
load the machine correctly after each meal and do a cold pre-wash between each load
to get rid of stains and remove the larger residues of food.
HOW TO GET GOOD WASH RESULTS
1) Place the dishes face downwards.
2) Try to place the dishes in such a way that they are not touching one another. If they are
loaded properly you will get better results.
3) Before placing the dishes in the dishwasher remove any remaining food (bones,
shells, pieces of meat or vegetables, coffee grounds, skin of fruit, cigarette ash etc. that
could clog up the outflow and the washing arm jets.
4) After loading the dishes, check that the washing arm can rotate freely.
5) Pans and other dishes that have particularly stubborn food particles or remnants of
burnt food should be left to soak in water with dishwasher detergent.
6) To wash silver properly:
a) - rinse the silver immediately after use especially if it has been used for
mayonnaise, eggs, fish etc.
b) - do not sprinkle detergent onto it.
c) - keep it seperate from other metals.
WHAT TO DO IF ... You want to stop the dishwasher to put in more dishes whilst it is in
the middle of a wash. Open the door, put in the dishes, and close the door, the machine
will start up again automatically.
WHAT NOT TO WASH ...
It should also be remembered that not all dishes are suitable for washing in a dishwasher.
We advise again using the dishwasher to wash items in thermoplastic, cutlery with wooden
or plastic handles, saucepans with wooden handles, items in aluminium, crystal, leaded
glass unless otherwise stated.
Certain decorations may fade. It is therefore a good idea before loading the whole batch
to wash just one of the items first so as to be sure that others like it will not fade.
It is also a good idea not to put silver cultery with non-stainless steel handles into the
dishwasher as there could be a chemical reaction between them.
NB : when buying new crockery or cutlery always make sure that they are suitable for
washing in a dishwasher.
AFTER USE - After each wash, close the tap which supplies the water to the dishwasher and
press the On/Off button to the Off position.
If the dishwasher is not going to be used for some time, the following precautions are
advisable:
1 - carry out a wash programme, but with no dishes, to degrease the machine,
2 - pull the plug out,
3 - turn off the water supply tap,
4 - fill the rinse aid dispenser,
5 - leave the door slightly ajar,
6 - leave the inside of the machine clean,
7 - if the machine is to be left in a place where the temperature is below 0°C, the water left
in the dispenser could freeze.
Therefore, it is advisable to raise the temperature above 0°C, approximately 24 hours
48 before using the machine again.
WATER CONNECTION - WATER DRAINAGE
WATER CONNECTION :
The inlet and drain hoses can be directed to left or right.
The dishwasher can be connected to either cold or hot water, as long as it is no hotter than
60°C.
Water pressure mut be between 0,08 MPa and 0,8 MPa. If the pressure is below the
minimum consult the service department for advice.
The inlet hose must be connected to a tap so that the water supply can be cut off when the
machine is not in use (fig.1). The dishwasher inlet hose is fitted with a 3/4" threaded connector
(fig.2). The inlet hose "A" should be tightly connected to a 3/4" tap "B".
The water connection of the dishwasher must be done exclusively with the pipe supplied. Do
not use an old pipe.
If lime scale deposits or sand are present in the water, it is advisable to obtain the appropriate
filter, art. 9226085, from the Service Centre (fig.3). The filter "D" must be inserted between the
tap "B" and the inlet hose "A", remembering to fit the washer "C".
If the machine is connected to new pipes or to pipes which have not been in use for long
time, run water through for a few minutes before connecting the inlet hose. In this way no
deposits of sand or rust will clog up the water inflow filter.
WATER DRAINAGE :
Take care not to bend or kink the drain hose when connecting it to the machine so that the
water can drain freely from it (fig.4y).
The drain hose must be at least 40 cm above floor level and it must have an internal diameter
af at least 4 cm. It is advisable to fit an anti-odour air trap (fig.4x).
If necessary, the outlet hose can be extended up to 2,6 m, provided that it is kept at a
maximum height of 85 cm above floor level. For this, contact Customer Service.
49
The hose can be hooked over the side of the sink (it must not be immersed in water, in
order to prevent water from being siphoned back to the machine when this is in operation)
Check that there are no kinks in the inlet and outlet hoses. To extend, if necessary the intlet
hose, contact the Customer Service.

CLEANING
Before carrying out any cleaning, you must :
• Disconnect the appliance from the electrical supply and wait for all the hot parts to cool.
• Never use abrasive cleaners, wire wool or sharp objects to clean the appliance.
• THE ENAMELLED PARTS : never use abrasives, scouring pads or sharp objects, as this
will cause irreparable damage to the enamel. Once the appliance has cooled down, simply
clean with soapy water and dry with a clean cloth.
• GAS BURNERS : for cleaning, it is recommended to remove all greasy or burnt deposits
with ammonia based products or usual cleaning products. Do not immerse the burner caps
in cold water immediately after use, to avoid cracking the enamel from the thermal shock. If
the holes become clogged, brush them with soapy water and dry with a cloth.
When re-assembling the burners, make sure that the burner caps and the burners themselves
are dry and after, seat them correctly.
• Caution : Be careful not to let any water get into the burners.
• LID : once the Trio has cooled down, simply clean with soapy water and dry with a clean
cloth. Before lifting the lid, make sure that anything that might spill over has been removed.
• OVEN LIGHTING - The bulb and its cover are made of material resistant to high
temperatures: 230 V~ - E 14 base - 15 W - Temperature 300°C mini.
Replacing the bulb : disconnect the power supply from the oven before attempting to
replace the lamp. Wait for the oven to cool down before doing any operation.
To change a defective bulb, just unscrew the glass cover, unscrew the bulb, replace it with
the same type, after replacing the defective bulb, screw back the protective glass cover.
• THE ACCESSORIES The oven shelf : do not clean the oven shelf with harsh abrasives. Simply use a cloth wrung
out in hot soapy water. Rinse with clean water and then dry.
The drip tray : after grilling, remove the drip tray from the oven and pour the grease into a
container. Wash and rinse the drip tray in very hot water, using a sponge and washing
powder. If still stained withs sticky food, immerse in soapy water. The drip tray can be clean
in the dishwasher. Never put the drip tray back in the oven if still dirty.
• THE OVEN DOOR GLASS It is recommended to wipe the oven door glass with absorbent paper after each cooking
cycle. If there is heavy staining, the glass can be cleaned with a sponge-cleaning agent.
• OVEN DOOR : it is possible to clean the oven door while in position or after removal.
To remove the door, carry out the following :
. open the door fully,
. release the hooks,
. pull the door upwards, closing it partially, until it is free.
To refit it, make sure you reposition the hinges carefully ; a notch located below them lets
you fit he hinges correctly.
After the door is put back on its supports, fit the hinges in their initial position.
