Recommendations for safe and reliable operation
The manufacturer guarantees trouble-free operation of the kitchen appliance, provided it is used only in domestic conditions and for its intended purpose. Before commissioning, you should carefully read the instructions and always keep it at hand. Storage and use of the device are recommended in a place inaccessible to children and people with limited sensory capabilities.
Before switching on it is necessary to make sure that the electrical characteristics of the mixer correspond to the network parameters. To eliminate the danger of electric shock, do not turn on the device with a damaged power cord and immerse the device in a liquid. It is unacceptable to pull out of the network and carry the device, holding the cord by hand.
For greater safety, nozzles should be changed when disconnected from power. Only branded accessories are allowed. Components from other manufacturers will inevitably lead to breakage or injury. It is not allowed to use the rotation of the stationary mixer without the bowl installed. It is dangerous to touch rotating parts and place foreign and solid objects in the bowl.
To avoid overheating, work with overload or with a duration of more than 10 minutes is unacceptable. Effective cooling of the motor requires a break for manual and desktop products 10-15 and 30-45 minutes, respectively. It is better to put products kept to room temperature in the container.
In order not to break the drive, you can not overload the device, especially when mixing dough. The denser the dough, the less recommended portion. Since the mixture of whipped ingredients acquires additional volume in order to prevent splashing or splashing out, during dosing it is not necessary to exceed the dosage.
Repairs should be carried out by a qualified technician. Attempting to disassemble and repair the product yourself, as well as improper assembly, increases the risk of electric shock.
