Question

How do I have to dispose the appliance at the end of its life?

Answer

Do not throw away the appliance with the normal household waste. Hand it in at an official collection point for recycling. By doing this, you help to preserve the environment.
The built-in rechargeable batteries contain substances that may pollute the environment. Always remove the batteries before you discard and hand in the appliance at an official collection point. If you have trouble removing the batteries, you can also take the appliance to a Philips service centre. The staff of this centre will remove the batteries for you and will dispose of them in an environmentally safe way.

Disposal of the batteries:

  • Only remove the batteries when they are completely empty to avoid a hazard.
  • Never let the batteries come into contact with metal.
  • Do not dismantle or short-circuit the batteries.
  • Protect the batteries from fire, heat and direct sunlight.

To remove the batteries, proceed as follows:
1. Let the appliance run until it stops.
2. Wait 2 hours.
3. Try to switch on the appliance again to drain the batteries of any remaining energy.
4. Remove the metal top cover with a screwdriver.
5. Undo the two screws.
6. Remove the plastic cover.
7. To remove the batteries from the housing, pull at the plastic loop that sticks out from the inside of the appliance.
8. Cut the four wires to separate the batteries from the printed circuit board.
