    Before switching on 
    o Make sure that it has been installed by a suitably qualified 
    person, as per the information contained in Baumatic’s 
    installation instructions. 
    o After delivery, wait for eight hours before connecting the 
    appliance to your mains supply. This will allow any refrigerant

    process to settle. 
    o The outside of the appliance and the removable accessories 
    contained within it, should be cleaned with a solution of liquid 
    detergent and water. 
    o The interior of the appliance should be cleaned 
    with a solution of sodium bicarbonate dissolved in 
    lukewarm water. The interior and accessories 
    should be thoroughly dried, after the cleaning 
    process has been completed.
