    How does the steam anti-crease programme work?

    The steam anti-crease additional programme can be selected with a large number of washing programmes. The integrated heating function gently treats shirts, blouses, skirts and other items with steam generated at the end of the wash cycle.  This makes ironing faster and more convenient – and sometimes even removes the need for it altogether.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    Is there a special programme for woollens?

    Yes, there is. The wool programme has been specially designed to treat woollen fabrics extremely gently during the wash cycle and with a much lower spin speed. This produces fantastic results while putting the wool under as little strain as possible.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    What energy efficiency class does the DualDry have?

    The DualDry is extremely energy-efficient. In tumble drying mode, it meets the requirements for energy efficiency class A++ and in room air laundry drying, the requirements for energy efficiency class A1.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    What is the purpose of the NoFrost technology built into FoodCenter models?

    NoFrost technology means you'll never have to manually defrost your fridge again. All of our FoodCenter models are fitted with NoFrost technology, which means they defrost automatically at regular intervals.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    How loud is the room air function?

    64 dB(A) in room air operation according to test regulation.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    Does the DualDry blow out hot air?

    During room air laundry drying, the room air (and therefore the clothes) is dehumidified; to this end, a heat pump is used. The temperature of the air blown out is only slightly above the temperature of the room air. DualDry releases a heat capacity of some 350-400 W into the room during operation. This means that the air blown out in normal operation is 5 - 10°C higher than the room temperature, but it is not electronically heated, which results in very good energy efficiency values. If the DualDry blows out tangibly hot air, this is often caused by a clogged fluff filter. Only when drying in the drum is the laundry dried with heated air.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    What is meant by MonoFridge mode?

    With MonoFridge, you can transform the freezer compartment into a standard refrigerator in just a few hours, freeing up even more space for fresh food.
    • Commissioning and operation

    What is the most economical way to use a refrigerator?

    Minimise your energy consumption and costs by defrosting your refrigerator regularly, positioning it in a cool place, not on the balcony, letting warm food cool down before placing it in the fridge and tightly covering liquids such as sauces.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    What exactly is the vibration absorbing system (VAS)?

    With the new Adora model, VAS compensates an unbalanced load during the spinning phase. This means the machine runs particularly smoothly and quietly. Structure-borne sound and its transmission to adjacent rooms are greatly reduced, which makes the Adora ideal for use in apartments or in buildings with an air-proof envelope such as those built according to the MINERGIE® standard. As documented by official tests, the V-ZUG Adora with VAS conforms perfectly to the stringent requirements of SIA standard 181.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    What is the automatic run-on function?

    Hoods with the automatic run-on function extract the remaining cooking vapours from the room for a specific time period (between 5 and 20 minutes) even after you have finished cooking and switched off the range hood. After that point, the range hood is switched off automatically. If the appliance is being used in recirculation mode, the activated charcoal filter can also carry out final drying of the furniture base – just like in range hoods that remove vapours by extracting them downwards (downdraft systems). This useful function is integrated into various range hoods and downdraft systems, and is activated by tapping the clock button shown at the end of the cooking process.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    What are the key benefits to a room air laundry dryer?

    Very careful drying as drying is without heat and friction, walls kept dry and therefore no formation of mould, quick drying, no hanging in stuffy cellar rooms for days on end, possible to dry anything that can be stored in the room (e.g. tents, carpets, sleeping bags, covers).
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    What should I bear in mind when planning and installing an exhaust duct?

    The exhaust duct should be as short as possible and have as few bends and curves as possible. Ideally, it should have a diameter of 150 mm. Each additional metre added to the exhaust duct and each additional bend will create resistance, reducing the power of the range hood. A more powerful range hood cannot compensate for a poorly designed exhaust duct. This will only result in increased losses and noise levels. Reducing the diameter of the exhaust duct should be avoided where possible – due to the increased flow rate, this will also lead to increased noise levels.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    How important is it for the range hood to cover the entire hob surface?

    The more the range hood covers the hob, the better the extraction performance. This is why flat pull-out deflector plates perform very well. For wall and island hoods, you should make sure that the majority of the hob is well covered.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    What is the purpose of the degree of soiling button?

    This adapts the wash programme to the degree of soiling. This additional function is typical for V-ZUG appliances and helps you save water, time and energy.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    What is the purpose of the tilting operating panel?

    Your convenience is important to us. Thanks to the articulated design, you can position the operating panel according to your personal preference.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    Why does the appliance run for so long?

    Room air laundry drying takes more time, as the laundry is streamed less efficiently with air and the temperatures during this process are also lower than when drying in the drum. Other factors that slow down the drying process: A lot of laundry in a small room, very damp laundry (of small spinning speed), open doors or windows, humidity that additionally enters the room, clogged front filter mat, items that prevent the release of air, soiled or faulty humidity sensor.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    How big may the room be?

    The recommended maximum size of the room is 25 m² (50 m³)
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    What is the purpose of the normal dry programme?

    This programme is designed for homogenous loads - an entire machine full of terry towels or underwear, for example.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    What do I need to know about range hoods using recirculation air?

    Compared with the extracted air solution, there is much less to consider for range hoods with recirculation air, particularly if you have chimney-based heating (such as gas, oil or coal-fired heaters, flow heaters, water heaters and open fireplaces). They are easy to install and they can be operated without restrictions if the range hood is used in recirculation mode with an activated charcoal filter. To use recirculation mode, you must provide an activated charcoal filter – the filter absorbs unpleasant odours and ensures there is fresh air in the kitchen while you are cooking.
    • Maintenance and Cleaning

    How do I prevent the formation of mould?

    Mould is caused by excess humidity in the room. Whenever laundry is hung up, the room air laundry drying function should be started to remove the humidity from the room. Alternatively, the moisture control programme can also be selected.

If desired, select additional functions by pressing the corresponding buttons. If no button is pressed within 20 seconds, the programme selected will start automatically.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    Is it normal for tumble dryers to generate fluff?

    Fluff consists of fine threads produced by friction during the manufacturing, wearing and washing of textiles. This does not mean that the appliance puts an excessive strain on your laundry. Even with laundry dried on a line, fluff can be observed when you shake or iron it. While the laundry is wet, fluff clings to it. In the tumble dryer, the fluff is separated from the textiles and caught by the fluff filter in the door. The amount of fluff depends on the type of laundry, but finding some fluff in the filter after drying is quite normal.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    How many hobs can I connect to a range hood via Bluetooth?

    Up to three hobs at the same time.
    • Functions, tips and tricks

    How do I connect my hob to the range hood so that I can use OptiLink?

    • Commissioning and operation

    Can I adjust the colour temperature for the range hood lighting?

    Yes you can – various range hoods have the FlexLED function. This allows you to easily adjust the colour temperature, from a warm-white 2700 to a cool 4000 kelvin. This feature creates the perfect atmosphere in harmony with the kitchen lighting and can be individually tailored to all kinds of lighting concepts.
    • Commissioning and operation

    What makes the extractor hoods particularly user-friendly?

    We recommend conveying the extracted air outside wherever possible, as this carries smells away from the kitchen. The most effective solution is to use an exhaust system (duct) with a diameter of 150 mm.
    • Commissioning and operation

    Should I leave the windows and doors open or closed when using the range hood?

    Range hoods need enough replacement air to guarantee optimum extraction performance. You can ensure this by opening a window or incorporating a replacement air unit. If there is insufficient replacement air, this can create negative pressure (a vacuum) – the range hood will become significantly louder and it will have difficulty conveying the cooking odours outside.
    • Commissioning and operation

    Can I adjust the degree of dryness With a V-ZUG tumble dryer?

    V-ZUG dryers are designed for minimum energy consumption. A humidity sensor continuously measures your laundry's degree of dryness. If in spite of this, your laundry turns out too dry or not dry enough, you can adjust the degree of dryness according to your needs.
    • Commissioning and operation

    Can I switch off/suppress the automatic light activation if I don’t really need a light above the cooking area?

    • Maintenance and Cleaning

    Do fluff filters need to be cleaned?

    The appliance has one fluff filter and two filter mats. Since the gentle stream of air and extremely gentle treatment only remove a small amount of fluff from the fabric, the fluff filter only needs to be emptied occasionally. The appliance automatically detects when the fluff filter is heavily clogged. A notification appears in the display when the fluff filter needs cleaning.

    • Functions, tips and tricks

    How many washes can be done with the content of an OptiDos tank before it needs to be refilled?

    Both OptiDos dispensers can each be filled with 1.2 l of liquid detergent or softener. OptiDos calculates the optimum dosing volume according to the selected programme and the laundry volume in the drum. No excessive or insufficient dosage ever again!Examples: Slightly soiled laundry, at medium water hardness, manufacturer’s dosing recommendation is 60 ml. This means that you can wash up to 20 times without refilling. Normally soiled laundry, at soft water hardness, manufacturer’s dosing recommendation is 95 ml. Here, up to 12 washes can be done without refilling (the number of washes depends on the dosing recommendation of the detergent, the laundry volume in the drum, water hardness, degree of soiling).

    How does pyrolytic self-cleaning work?

    Ovens with pyrolytic features practically clean themselves: Dirt is converted into ash by the special pyrolytic self-cleaning programme, which heats the cooking chamber to extremely high temperatures. The ash can then be wiped away with a damp cloth. Pyrolytic self-cleaning is available as an option in all appliances in convenience level V4000 or above.

    Are appliances with AutoDoor a safety risk for unsupervised children?

    No. If the appliance door reaches its stopping point or encounters resistance, movement is stopped. The appliance door is uncoupled from the drive at a certain angle and can be moved freely. If an appliance door with AutoDoor is stopped manually, you must press the button again or close the appliance door manually to reset it.

    Is there a safer and more convenient way of removing the baking trays from the baking or cooking chambers?

    The optional fully extending runner allows you to remove up to three baking trays safely and conveniently from the baking chamber. This is particularly practical when basting a piece of meat or for removing biscuits or a flan from the baking tray.

    Is there not a risk of burning yourself on the door front?

    All appliances are guaranteed to have low external door temperatures. In the case of normal ovens and steamers, a triple-layer glass door ensures safe operation while cooking. Pyrolytic self-cleaning ovens actually have a four-layer glass door concept. Thanks to the innovative door concept in the Advanced and Excellence Line, the door is ventilated with air from the room, thereby keeping the temperature of the outer door lower than it is for the standard models. What’s more, active appliance door ventilation also enables lower outer door temperatures for pyrolytic self-cleaning appliances.

    What is the difference between an oven and a cooker?

    A cooker is always installed underneath the worktop and has switches that allow the hob to be controlled. The oven is usually installed at eye level in a tall unit. This makes operation more convenient and ergonomic.

    What is EasyCook and how do the filter functions work?

    The EasyCook function provides you with helpful default settings for over 100 selected foods – so you can cook quickly and with confidence even without a recipe. Simply select the desired food under EasyCook, and the appliance will immediately suggest one or more cooking methods. The selection of foods and recipes can be customised. The «Nutritional style» filter setting can be used to remove foods that are not required at the touch of a button. For example, meat can be deselected if the user is a vegetarian. The «National cuisines» filter, on the other hand, expands the range of dishes to include country-specific recipes and can be quickly adapted to your personal culinary style.

    Can an existing cooker or oven be replaced with a steamer?

    The CombairSteamer fits best in an existing niche (762 mm) for a standard oven or cooker. These appliances combine a complete oven and steaming functions. CombairSteamers offer all the steaming programmes of a steam cooker and the classic functions of an oven – such as hot air, top/bottom heat and grill. If expanding the niche is possible, we recommend the classic combination of a 45 oven and a 45 CombiSteamer, allowing you to benefit from the flexibility of having two cooking spaces.
