Examples showing how to load the trolley are shown on the goods positioning sign. • Close the door and make sure that the handle is in the locked position. handle them with care to avoid burns. If the items are still hot after a program. the goods will not be properly washed or disinfected. You can see the machine programs on the separate program sheet. If the program is aborted after starting. NOTE: The lighting in the chamber and in the display switches to standby mode after 30 minutes and returns automatically when a program is started or selected. NOTE: Maximum weight of items to be washed and wash trolley: 46-2: 35 kg 46-3: 35 kg 46-4: 50 kg 46-5: 60 kg • Make sure that the washer arms can rotate freely without touching the goods. close the clean-side door). Press S to see how much time remains. a yellow lamp at M is lit and the program phase (eg “Rinse”) and the current temperature are shown on the display. • Press V.

Use safety glasses and protective gloves when handling these substances. Page 11 of 24 <Doc_USR><Doc_5025919000><Rel_A><Lang_EN> • Pre-treatment with detergent or disinfectant and certain types of dirt may result in increased lather formation. • Make sure that the strainers in the machine are clean and that water can flow through them. • Make sure that utensils are not lying on top of each other. • Handle liquid agents (for cleaning. • Make sure that the water jets reach all surfaces of the goods. Do not add organic solvents as this may result in an explosion. The lather may affect the washing and disinfection­ result­ . Any surfaces that are covered will not be completely clean. • Anodised aluminium and nickel-plated instruments are not suitable for washing in a washer disinfector. To avoid chemical reactions (eg oxy-hydrogen gas) and damage to materials. • Position vessels with their openings downwards in the correct inserts. • Do not use domestic dishwasher detergent. the detergent must only be used for the purpose stated by the manufacturer. It is important to clean and check the strainers regularly. • Follow carefully the manufacturer’s instructions for detergents and special products. Always follow the manufacturer’s safety instructions when handling chemical agents. especially hydrochloric acid. If cleaning results are not satisfactory. • Position sharp and pointed utensils in such a way that they cannot cause injury or damage during loading and unloading. . Water must be able to flow freely into and out of the vessels. try changing to a detergent of a different quality before contacting Getinge. • Follow the dosing instructions of the detergent manufacturer.Positioning the goods NOTE: All vessels must be thoroughly emptied before they are loaded into the machine. preventing water from reaching all surfaces. • Use inserts and special inserts correctly and only for the items and utensils that are to be washed. Different detergents may have different cleaning effects. • Rigid endoscopes must be dismantled in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions before washing. rinsing. Working with detergents etc Empty out all residue of acid. The substances often consist of acids or caustic solutions. solvents and chloridecontaining solvents from the vessels before placing them in the machine.

Check that the arm can rotate freely when re-installed. For example. • Check the cleaning result visually when the process is complete.Daily inspection • Check that no objects have fallen down into the bottom of the washing chamber. • Open the detergent access panel and check that there is detergent/rinse-aid in the containers and the hoses. Check that the holes in the washing arms are not blocked. Water must be able to flow freely through the ducts in hollow instruments. adjust the spring. • If the arms need cleaning. • The spray arm journal must be checked daily and replaced every five years. <Doc_USR><Doc_5025919000><Rel_A><Lang_EN> • If necessary for cleaning. remove them by unscrewing the central nut. open the strainer with the two nuts. A dirty coarse strainer may prevent water from circulating and create the conditions for the growth of bacteria. • Check that the spray arms can rotate freely. worn and missing parts that might affect­ the performance of the machine. • To achieve the intended level of performance and safety. • Check that the goods to be cleaned are retained in the insert. Blocked spray holes may adversely affect the cleaning result. • Check the cleaning instructions of the goods manufacturer. • Check that the dockings move easily. Centre nut Coarse strainer Fine strainer Detergent/rinse-aid container • Remove and clean the strainer in the bottom of the washing chamber. Loose objects may cause blockages and seriously reduce the performance of the washer disinfector. If the wash trolley­does not dock properly. blocked channels. • Check that the trolley docks properly with the water connections. The heating coils under the coarse strainer may be hot. • Check the accessories of the machine visually with regard to their intended use and function. distribute the load evenly over the washing surface.

However. Therefore you should never. Make sure the worn-out washer/flusher disinfector is kept out of reach of children before it is taken away for recycling. The machine might be contaminated. they also contain materials that are harmful but necessary in order for the machines to function in a proper and secure way. Ask your reseller if required. This means it must be disinfected before it can be recycled. take worn-out electrical and electronic machines to a recycling plant. If these materials are placed among the domestic waste or handled in the wrong way. it could lead to health hazards or damage to the environment.
