Do not place heavy articles or the fridge/freezer itself on the power
cord.
- There is a risk of a short circuit and fire.
Do not remove the power cord by pulling on its lead, particularly when
the fridge/freezer is being pulled out of its niche.
- Damage to the cord may cause a short-circuit, fire and/or electric shock.
- If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a certified service
agent or qualified service personnel.
If the power plug socket is loose, do not insert the power plug.
- There is a risk of electric shock or fire.
Without the lamp cover of interior lighting you must not operate the
appliance.
When cleaning, defrosting, taking out frozen food or ice tray do not use
sharp, pointed or hard devices, as they can cause damage to the appliance.
Be careful not to allow liquids to leak into the temperature control and
lighting box.
Ice and ice-cream can cause frost burns if they are eaten immediately
after removal from the frozen food compartment.
After dissolving frozen food must not be refrozen, it must be used up as
soon as possible.
Store pre-packed frozen food in accordance with the frozen food manufacturer's instructions.
You must not make defrosting faster with any electric heating appliance
or chemicals.
Do not put hot pot to the plastic parts.
5
Do not store flammable gas and liquid in the appliance, because they may
explode.
Do not store carbonated drinks, bottled drinks and bottled fruits in the

for storing food in the fridge.
5. Once the required temperature has been set, after a short period (approx. 5
sec.) the temperature display will change and again indicate the current
ACTUAL temperature inside the fridge. The display will change from flashing
to continuous illumination.
Information! When the setting is changed, the compressor does not start
immediately if automatic defrosting is currently taking place. As the storage
temperature within the fridge is reached quickly you can store food immediately after switching on.
COOLMATIC
The COOLMATIC function is suited for quick cooling of large quantities of
goods in the refrigerator.
1. The COOLMATIC function is switched on by pressing the COOLMATIC button
(F).
The yellow light (E) illuminates.
The COOLMATIC function now provides for intensive cooling. A DESIRED temperature of +2°C is automatically selected. The COOLMATIC function is ended
automatically after a period of 6 hours.
2. The COOLMATIC function can be ended manually at any time by pressing the
COOLMATIC button again. The yellow light goes out.
Holiday function
The holiday function sets the temperature at +15°C. This function allows you
to keep the refrigerator shut and empty during a long holiday period (e.g. the
summer holidays) without the formation of a bad smell.
1. To turn on the holiday function, press button (B).
2. Press continuously button (B) until the letter "H" (Holiday) appears on the
temperature indicator. The temperature indicator can modify the displayed
temperature up to +8°C, 1° at a tim. 8°C will be followed by the letter "H".
Now the refrigerator is in the "holiday" function in the energy-saving mode.
The fridge compartment must be empty with the holiday function on.
15
Important: If the fridge compartment is off, the door must be closed in order
that the freezer is working properly.
In this condition, the electronic control of the appliance functions automatically and periodically circulating the air to prevent unpleasant smells and
humidity.
How to use the refrigerator
For adequate cooling developing interior air circulation is necessary. For this
reason you are asked not to cover the air circulation gaps behind the shelves
(e.g. with tray etc.).
Do not put hot food into the refrigerator. Allow it to reach room temperature naturally. In this way the unnecessary frost building up can be avoided.
Foods can take over odours from each other. So it is essential to put foods
in closed dishes or wrap them in cellophane, aluminium foil, grease-proof
paper or cling film before placing them into the refrigerator. This way
foods will keep their moisture e.g. vegetables will not dry out after some
days.
Interior Accessories
Storage Shelves
Various glass storage shelves are
included with your appliance. The
height of the storage shelves can
be adjusted:
1. To do this pull the storage shelf forward until it can be swivelled
upwards or downwards and
removed.
2. Please do the same in reverse to
insert the shelf at a different
height.
16
Air Filter
Your appliance is equipped with a
carbon filter behind a flap in the rear
wall of the air distributing box.
The filter purifies the air from
unwanted odours in the fridge compartment meaning that the storage
quality will be further improved.
Note: Always keep the air ventilation
flap closed.
Drawer
The drawer is suitable for storing fruit
and vegetables.
There is a separator inside the drawer
that can be placed in different position to allow for the subdivision best
suited to personal needs.
17

The product equipped with this feature in the fridge part. This compartment
is indicated for the best conservation of fresh food like fish, meat, seafood
because the temperature is lower here than in the rest of the fridge. It is
placed in the lower part, directly above of the vegetable drawer.
Storage time and temperature of foods
The storage time chart at the end of the instruction book gives information
about storage time.
The storage time can not be determined exactly in advance, as it depends on
the freshness and handling of the cooled food. That is why the storage time
made known is only informative.
If you do not want to use up deep-frozen foods bought immediately they can
be stored for about 1 day (until dissolving) in the refrigerator.

alarm reset button (L) to stop the buzzer sound, while the warning light will
continue to flash.
The buzzer will stop automatically when the temperature has returned to
normal while the warning light (M) will continue to flash. If we press the
alarm reset button (L) we stop the warning light and at the same time the
indicator show for about 5 seconds the warmest temperature reached in the
compartment.
20
Switching the Appliance off
To switch off, hold down the (A) button.
If the appliance is not going to be used for an extended period:
1. Turn off the appliance.
2. Remove the mains plug or switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or fuse.
3. Defrost the freezer compartment and clean the appliance thoroughly (see
section: "Cleaning and Maintenance").
4. Finally, leave the doors open so as to avoid a build up of odours.
Freezing and storing frozen food
You can use your freezer for freezing fresh food yourself.
Important!
The temperature in the freezer compartment must be -18 °C or colder
before freezing food.
Please observe the freezing capacity given on the rating plate. The freezing capacity is the maximum quantity of fresh food that can be frozen
within a period of 24 hours. If you wish to freeze food several days in a row,
please observe a maximum capacity of only 2/3 to 3/4 of that on the rating plate. The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen right
through to the core as quickly as possible.
Allow warm food to cool down before freezing. The warmth will cause
increased ice formation and increase the power consumption.
Please note the maximum storage times specified by the manufacturer.
Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into meals)
may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
Containers with flammable gases or liquids can leak at low temperatures.
There is a risk of an explosion! Do not store any containers with flammable materials such as, for example, spray cans, fire extinguisher refill cartridges etc in the refrigerator/freezer.
Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer. They can burst when
the contents freeze, high carbonate content drinks can even explode!
Never store lemonade, juices, beer, wine, sparkling wine etc. in the freezer.
Exception: high alcohol content spirits can be stored in the freezer.
All foods must be packed air tight prior to freezing, so that they do not dry
out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of other
frozen goods occurs.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could freeze
to the food.
21
1. To achieve faster freezing of food or to freeze the maximum allowed quantity, depress the ambient switch 12 hours before loading the food without
modifying the thermostat setting.
2. Place the food to be frozen in the top drawer.
3. Do not open the door frequently or
leave it open longer than absolutely
necessary.
The freezing tray is suitable for
freezing smaller fruits (raspberry,
strawberry, currant, etc.).
Fruits should be put in the tray in
thin layers without packaging. After
freezing they can be packed and
sorted out then placed into the storing compartments.
Storing in the freezer
It is practical to replace frozen products into the basket(s) after freezing has
finished. Doing this you could make room in the freezing compartment for
another freezing. Intermediate freezing does not deteriorate foods already
stored.
If large quantities of food are to be stored, remove the baskets except the lowermost one from appliance and place food on the cooling surface.
Do not forget to keep to the storage time given on the packaging of frozen
products if you buy them frozen. To store home-frozen products see the storing instructions placed in the door of the freezer. Symbols signify the various
foods, numbers mean maximum storing time given in months.
If is safe to store quick-frozen, frozen foods only if they have not dissolved
even for a short time until placing them into the freezer. If the deep-frozen
food has already dissolved, refreezing is not recommended, it has to be used
up as soon as possible.
How to make ice cubes
To make ice cubes fill the enclosed ice cube tray with water and put it to the
frozen food compartment. Setting thermostatic control knob to maximum
position can shorten preparing time. After finishing do not forget to reset the
thermostatic control to the suitable position.
Ready ice cubes can be taken out of the tray under running water then twist
or hit it. If the ice tray freezes to the compartment, avoid using metal tools
or knife to take it out as the cooling system can be damaged.
22
Some useful information and advice
1. The variable shelves are worth paying attention to, which increases the usability of the fresh food compartment considerably. Rearranging the shelves is
also possible when the door is open at an angle of 90° .
2. After opening and closing the door of the freezer vacuum will rise inside the
appliance because of the low temperature. So wait 2-3 minutes after closing
the door - if you want to open it again - while inner pressure equalises.
3. Take care of opening the freezer at a position of thermostatic control so that
the inside temperature can never be warmer than -18 °C.
4. It is practical to make sure of faultless operation of the appliance daily so as
to notice possible failure in time and prevent deterioration of frozen foods.
5. Normal operating sounds:
A thermostat controls the compressor and you will hear a faint click when
thermostat cuts in and out.
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sound when the refrigerant is
pumped through the coils 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.
The fridge evaporator (this part cool down the fridge section) is foamed
into the cabinet. The temperature
of this part changing during its
work, and parallel with this its
dimensions are slightly changing,
too. These changes might cause a
cracking noise, which is a natural,
harmless phenomenon.
6. Should you want to check the temperature of food stored in the refrigerator, place a glass of water centrally in the cabinet, and put a proper thermometer with an accuracy of
+/- 1 °C into it. If after 6 hours you
measure a value around that seen on
the display, the refrigerator works
properly. The measuring shall be performed under steady-stated conditions
(without changing the load).
7. If the freezer temperature is measured using a thermometer, put it between
the products since this will reflect the real temperature in the frozen products. It is normal that the built-in temperature display shows a temperature
slightly above that measured in other ways.

Hints and ideas
In this chapter practical hints and ideas are given about how to use the appliance to reach maximum energy saving and there is environmental information about the appliance as well.
How to save energy
1. Avoid putting the appliance in a sunny place near anything that gives off
heat.
2. Be sure that the condenser and the compressor are well ventillated. Do not
cover the sections where ventilation is.
3. Wrap products in tightly closing dishes or cling film to avoid bulding up
unnecessary frost.
4. Do not leave the door open longer than necessary and avoid unnecessary
openings.
5. Put warm foods into the appliance only when they are at room temperature.
6. Keep the condenser clean.
The appliance and environment
This appliance does not contain gasses which could damage the ozone layer,
in either its refrigerant circuit or insulation materials. The appliance shall not
be discarded together with the urban refuse and rubbish. Avoid damaging the
cooling unit, especially at the rear near the heat exchanger. Information on
your local disposal sites may be obtained from your municipal authorities.
The materials used on this appliance marked with the sympol
are recyclable.

Maintenance
Defrosting
Defrosting is automatic in this model.
Regular cleaning
Clean the equipment regularly.
Do not use detergents, abrasive or strong odorous cleaners, waxy polishing agents or disinfectants or alcoholic products for cleaning the equipment.
Before cleaning pull out the wall plug of the equipment from the outlet.
Internal cleaning
Clean the internal parts of the equipment and the accessories with warm
water and sodium bicarbonate (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water).
Rinse and dry everything thoroughly. Clean the door seal profile with clean
water.
External cleaning
Clean the external parts of the equipment with warm water and sodium
bicarbonate (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water).
It is recommended to remove the dust and dirt deposited on the back side of
the equipment and on the condenser once or twice a year, and to clean the
evaporation tray on top of the compressor.
After cleaning, reconnect the equipment to the mains supply.
25
Changing the Carbon Filter
To maintain the best performance the carbon filter should be changed every
year.
New carbon filters can be purchased from your local dealer.
1. Pull the flap outwards. (1)
2. Remove the filter from the plastic bag.
3. Insert the filter in the slot found
in the back of the flap cover (2).
4. Close the flap cover.
Note: the carbon filter is a consumable accessory and as such is not
covered by the guarantee.
During operation, always keep the
air ventilation flap closed.
The filter should be handled carefully so fragments do not loosen
from the surface.
This appliance has a supplementary light at the bottom of the air distribution unit. Should this light not work, do not try to replace it yourself.
Please, call the nearest Service Force Centre.
26
If something does not work
During operation of the appliance some smaller but annoying trouble can
often occur, which does not require calling a technician out. In the following
chart information is given about them to avoid unnecessary charges on service.
We draw your attention that operation of appliance goes with certain sounds
(compressor- and circulating sound). This does not necessarily mean a fault
has occurred, this goes together with the operation of the appliance.
We draw it to your attention again that the appliance operates discontinuously, so the stopping of compressor does not mean being no-current. That
is why you must not touch the electrical parts of the appliance before breaking the circuit.
