The invention relates to a method for controlling household appliance and household appliance, in particular for household drying or washing machine.

Household drying and washing machine are well known. With regard to household drying machines, they dried up textile articles using the condensation process or by using a release moist air.

It is established that the processing of textile products can be improved through the use of steam, which acts on textiles, for example, in the dryer during one mode of operation. One aspect of this process is that textile products are better prepared for the subsequent Ironing. Another aspect is that removes unwanted odors emanating from textiles.

Typically, the dryer includes a rotatable drum in which are textiles processing of hot steam. The steam generated by the steam unit is fed by a tube and a steam injector in the drum. Pairs during operation in the drum usually has a temperature equal to or exceeding 100°C, therefore, the door used for loading the dryer drum and unloading from him textiles, during program execution processing of textiles ferry may be the dangerous for the user.

The purpose of this invention is to develop a method of control for home appliance and household appliance, which at least reduces the risk of an accident, associated with the hot steam during operation of the appliance.

This problem is solved in a method of controlling a household appliance, in particular household drying or washing machine on paragraph 1 of the claims. Household appliance comprises a steam unit and has an operating mode of the processing of textiles with hot steam, when an interrupt occurs, the active program processing of textiles with hot steam, is performed at least one action to protect the user's appliance. It is established that it is necessary to control each interrupt program for processing textiles steam, because regardless of whether the interrupt is caused by the user or not, there is always the potential risk that a user opens a door of the household appliance, not thinking about the hot pair inside the appliance. Thus, when the interrupt program execution for the treatment of textile products hot steam is reasonable to perform at least one action, and preferably more, so that the user was injured by hot steam, generated in this household appliance.

According to one variant of the invention, this action takes place when the door is opened to load the camera appliance textiles and unloading them therefrom, thus opening the door interrupts the program processing of textiles with steam. Usually household appliance includes a door for access into the rotating drum containing textiles during operation of the appliance. This door contains the mechanism of opening and closing. Can also be sensitive elements that interact with the mechanism for opening and closing the door. Preferably, these sensors were connected with management appliance. Controls, ultimately, initiate actions to protect a user when the door is opened during program execution processing of textiles with steam.

Thus, controls, electrical household appliance, as a rule, stop the operation of the steam unit, in particular the functioning of the steam pump unit and/or heating of the steam generator.

According to variants of the invention, the steam flow into the chamber appliance containing textiles, can be at least partially stopped by the overlap of the tube, which supplies the chamber with steam. This tube may be blocked by a valve, preferably a solenoid.

Another possibility for protecting the user according to the invention is to at least partially release the steam block appliance from the steam when an interrupt occurs, program execution processing of textiles with steam. This can be achieved by means of a valve, preferably a solenoid. Preferably, the opening and closing valve operated by the control unit of the household appliance. Thus pairs is given in that part or those parts of the appliance with which the user typically does not contact or to which he has no access.

According to variants of the invention, the steam flow into the chamber if the new appliance, containing textiles, can be at least partially stopped by reversing the flow of steam through the steam unit. Due to the reversal of flow of steam through the steam unit no steam passes through the tube and the injector towards the chamber containing textiles, but is supplied in the opposite direction. Preferably, the steam pump unit, which usually pumps up water from the water tank to the steam generator steam unit was operated in riversiana mode. In riversiana mode, the steam pump unit is driven in the opposite direction and dangle pairs are produced in the steam generator, water tank.

To protect the user can remove from the dryer appliance contained therein couples, when an interrupt occurs, program execution processing of textiles with steam. This can be achieved through a separate tube connected to one end of the drum, and the other with the external environment. Preferably has operated valve for opening the passage through the tube. Preferably for removing steam from the drum with textile products used fan. Another possibility for removing steam from the drum appliance is to use an already existing is Yu tube appliance. It is preferable to use a tube for supplying air into the drum or tube release the air from the drum. Both tubes are typically used for air circulation during the drying process in the textile, consequently, the last mentioned embodiments of the invention is well suited for everyday drying.

According to a variant embodiment of the invention door for loading appliance textiles and unloading them therefrom cannot be opened after the interruption of the active application for processing textiles ferry until then, until there is a danger of injury to the user. Preferably, a door for loading and unloading of textiles could not be opened within a certain time period and/or until such time as the temperature and/or humidity in the camera appliance containing textiles, will not accept certain values. Thus, the door is open in these cases is controlled by time or temperature, or humidity.

During the execution of such programs water contained in the tank 20, is pumped by pump 21 to the generator 22 a pair, and there is heated. Produced in the generator 22 steam is supplied through the pipe 24 to the injector 23, and into the drum 4. This hot steam hits the textiles contained in the drum 4, which rotates around the axis A. the Hot water vapor has a temperature of 100°C and more. This process, in particular the execution of appropriate software also manages the device 40 of the control.

It was during program execution processing of textiles with hot steam, there is a danger that the user may be injured by the hot steam when you interrupt the program. Typically, the interrupt program execution processing of textiles steam caused by either opening the door 3 download drum 4 textiles or unloading them therefrom, or by switching the switching equipment household dryer 1. But the interruption of the program execution processing of textiles steam can also the rotoiti due to the refusal of household dryer 1. This list is not exhaustive.

For the early detection of the opening 3 of the drum 4, the mechanism 17 of the opening and closing of the door 3 is equipped with additional sensors 18. Sensitive elements 18 are, for example, a light barrier or any other suitable sensing element for immediate registration opening 3 mechanism 17. Sensors 18 are connected to the device 40 controls that are not shown on the drawings. Thus, the device 40 controls can immediately register the opening of the door 3.

As mentioned above, the program execution processing of textiles steam may also be interrupted by activation of the switching means. Switching means for such interrupts are button 33 stop or button 34 start/pause button on the panel 30 controls for household dryer 1. Switching any of these buttons is registered by the device 40 of the control.

When any interrupt program execution processing of textiles steam, in particular in the above cases, it is wise to take at least one action to protect the user, as in the time of the interruption, the user may not be aware of the presence of hot steam inside the drum 4.

When the device 40 control the registers interrupt program execution processing of textiles ferry whether it is through sensitive elements 18 or by receiving the stop signal, or signal a pause caused by pressing the button 33 stop or button 34 start/pause, the device 40 control starts to work in some sort of emergency mode and immediately issue at least one warning signal. Preferably, the device 40 controls produces or generates an acoustic and optical warning signal that attracts the attention of the user to the presence of hot steam inside the drum 4.

Acoustic warning signal is issued, for example, by the sounder or loudspeaker 35 panel 30 of the control. A warning signal may represent, for example, horn or voice warning like warning "caution - hot pairs".

Optical warning signal is issued via an optical display device, which in the preferred embodiment of the invention is located in front of household dryer 1. The optical display device can represent, for example, a lamp, in particular a red lamp 36 or led or LCD display 31. Optical warning signal may be a red warning light or when using the years of the liquid crystal display 31 - red flashing words such as "caution - hot pairs".

In addition to the issuance of a warning signal device 40 controls after you register interrupt program execution processing of textiles ferry stops further flow of hot steam from a steam unit in the drum 4. The device 40 of the control, in particular, stops the operation of the pump 21 of the steam unit and the heating process heat generator 22 of the steam block.

When tube 27 is connected with the electromagnetic valve 25, the steam unit can also be deprived of steam by means of the electromagnetic valve 25 and tube 27. In this case, there is no need for a solenoid valve 26.

Another action performed by the device 40 control in case of interruption of the program execution processing of textile products, is that as soon as possible and bring the drum 4 contained in the hot steam. This can be done through a separate tube connected to the drum 4 and is equipped with a controllable valve. But preferably, in order to derive the hot steam from the drum 4 was used tube 7 air supply and/or tube 9 air vent. In this embodiment of the invention uses a tube 7 of the air flow because of the presence of the fan 14. Thus, the device 40 controls can activate the motor 16 so that the steam is withdrawn from the drum 4 by means of a fan 14, which is driven in the reverse direction compared with the mode of drying (arrow in figure 2).

When the interrupt program execution processing of textiles ferry by switching one of the buttons 33 or 34 device 40 control locks the door 3 by means of the device, the locking mechanism 17 (not explicitly shown in the drawing). Thus, the 3 door cannot be opened until then, until there is no danger of injury to the user. Preferably, the door 3 is locked by the device 40 controls within a certain period of time, for example 1 minute, or until such time as the temperature and/or humidity in the drum 4 reaches a certain value. The temperature value can be determined by means of a separate sensor 19 temperature the tours, connected to the device 40 of the control, or by means not shown in the drawing temperature sensor generator 22 a pair. On the basis of the temperature of the generator 22 a pair, and known characteristics of the cooling steam in the drum 4, the device 40, the control calculates the temperature in the drum 4. The value of the air humidity can be determined by means of a separate sensor 28 connected to the device 40 controls, or through existing sensor, household drying 1.

The invention has been described in relation to household dryer condensation type, but it is not limited to a domestic clothes dryer of this type and can also be used in household drying with the release of moist air, as shown in figure 3. Shown in figure 3 components, by type and function identical or comparable components, shown in figure 2, are denoted by the same reference position.

In the embodiment of the invention shown in figure 3, the heated air for drying wet textile articles contained in the drum 4, is introduced into the drum 4 through the tube 7 air supply, the heating element 8 and the fan 14. Moisture saturated air is removed from the drum 4 to the outside.
