Installation
•
Frozen food must NOT be re-frozen once it has
thawed out.
•
•
Do not place carbonated or fizzy drinks in the
freezer.
•
Do not remove items from the freezer if your
hands are damp/wet, as this could cause skin
abrasions or frost/freezer burns.
•
Ice lollies can cause ‘frost/freezer burns’ if
consumed straight from the freezer.
•
Manufacturers’ storage recommendations should
be strictly adhered to. Refer to relevant
instructions.
•
The cooling plate or refrigerated freezer shelves
in this appliance contain channels through which
the refrigerant passes. If these are punctured this
will cause substantial damage to the appliance
and result in food loss. DO NOT USE SHARP
INSTRUMENTS to scrape off frost or ice. Under
NO circumstances should solid ice be forced off
the lining or shelves. Solid ice should be allowed
to thaw, when defrosting the appliance. See
Defrost Instructions.

Use of the fridge compartment
Setting the temperature
Fresh food refrigeration
The temperature within the appliance is controlled by
the thermostat control knob situated at the top of the
appliance.
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; cover
or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong flavour.
To operate the appliance proceed as follows:
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation.
Turn the thermostat control beyond the «O» position.
Position
●
= minimum coldness
Position ● = maximum coldness
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
The intermediate position is usually the most
suitable.
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & chicken or poultry):
wrap in polythene bags and place on the glass shelf
above the salad drawers.
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the appliance depends on the following
factors:
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
– room temperature
– how often the door is opened
– how much food is stored
– position of the appliance
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the salad drawers.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
Shopping Function
If you need to insert a large amount of warm food, for
example after doing the grocery shopping, we suggest
activating the Shopping function to chill the products
more rapidly and to avoid warming the other food
which is already in the refrigerator and/or freezer.
The shopping function is activated by pressing key C
(several times if necessary) until the corresponding
icon appears
The shopping function shuts off automatically after
approximately 6 hours.
It is possible to de-activate the function at any time by
pressing key C (see paragraph "Function Activation").
Door open acoustic alarm
An acoustic alarm will sound when the door is left
open for around 5 minutes.
The door open alarm conditions are indicated by:
- flashing symbol (1);
- red display illumination;
- beeping sound.
Press the button (C) to stop the acoustic alarm.
When normal conditions are restored (door closed):
- the acoustic alarm will stop.
Normal Operating Sounds
•
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils
or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator.
•
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is
being pumped round, and you will hear a whirring
sound or pulsating noise from the compressor.
•
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you
will hear a faint ’click’ when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
5
Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator have runners so that the
shelves can be positioned as desired .
For better use of space, the front half-shelves can lie
over the rear ones.
D338
Positioning the door shelves
To permit storage of food packages of various sizes,
the door shelves can be adjusted in height.To make
these adjustments proceed as follows:
Gradually pull the shelf in the direction of the arrows
until it comes off, then reposition as required.
Bottle holder
Place the bottles (with the opening facing front) in
the pre-positioned shelf.
If the shelf is positioned horizontally, place only
closed bottles.
This bottle holder shelf can be tilted in order to store
previously opened bottles.
To obtain this result, pull the shelf up so it can rotate
upwards and be placed on the next higher level.
Air recycling
The refrigerator compartment is equipped with a
special D.A.C.(Dynamic Air Cooling) fan which can
be turned on with the switch A ( see fig. 1). The
green light, when on, means that the fan is working.
It is suggested that the fan (D.A.C.) be used when
the ambient temperature exceeds 25°C.

HINTS AND TIPS
Food Storage
•
To obtain the best results from the appliance
neither hot foods nor liquids which may
evaporate, should be placed in the larder
compartment.
•
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your refrigerator as short as possible.
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
•
Do not store food uncovered.
•
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean, refer to Maintenance and Cleaning.
Energy Saving Advice
•
Do not install the appliance close to sources of
heat, such as a boiler or radiator.
•
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
appliance are not obstructed.
•
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge.
•
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
•
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the
door from closing properly.
•
It is advisable to peridocally clean the
refrigeration system at the back of the appliance
with a duster or vacuum cleaner.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Before any maintenance or cleaning work is carried
out, DISCONNECT the appliance from the
ELECTRICITY supply.
Internal cleaning
Changing the light bulb
If it becomes necessary to replace the lamp, press on
the rear hook and at the same time slide the cover in
the direction indicated by the arrow.
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water
and bicarbonate of soda (5ml to 0.5 litre of water).
Rinse and dry thoroughly.
NEVER USE DETERGENTS, ABRASIVE
POWDERS, HIGHLY PERFUMED CLEANING
PRODUCTS OR WAX POLISHES, TO CLEAN THE
INTERIOR AS THESE WILL DAMAGE THE
SURFACE AND LEAVE A STRONG ODOUR.
External cleaning
An accumulation of dust will affect the performance
of the appliance and cause excessive electricity
consumption.
Unscrew the bulb and replace it with one of the same
power (the maximum power is shown on the light
diffuser) available from your nearest Service Force
Centre.
Once or twice a year dust the condenser (black grill)
and the compressor at the back of the appliance,
with a brush or vacuum cleaner, see figure.
Replace the light cover by sliding it into its original
position.
When the appliance is not in use
When the appliance is not in use for long periods,
disconnect from the electricity supply, empty all
foods and clean the appliance, leaving the doors ajar
to prevent unpleasant smells.
PR259
Defrosting
The refrigerator automatically defrosts every time the
compressor stops. The water is discharged, via the
pipe, into a tray located at the back of the appliance
above the compressor, where it evaporates.
Important
To avoid defrost water overflowing into the fridge,
periodically clean the water discharge hole in the
centre of the V shaped drip collector at the back of
the refrigerator compartment behind the salad
crispers. Use the defrost cleaner provided which you
will find already inserted into the discharge hole.
Remember to wash the defrost cleaner in hot soapy
water at regular intervals. Dry throughly before
replacing.
D037

+18°C to + 43°C
The appliance should be located in a dry
atmosphere, out of direct sunlight and away from
continuous heat and extreme temperature, e.g. not
next to a boiler or radiator, or in a very cold room e.g.
an outhouse. If these temperatures are exceeded i.e.
warmer or colder, then the appliance may not
operate correctly.
