• hissing when the appliance is switched on the first time or after a
long period.
• gurgling when the refrigerant enters the pipes.
• humming when the water valve or fan are activated.
• rattling when the compressor starts up or when the ice drips in
the bucket.
• a sudden thud when the compressor starts up or stops.
Some noises can be reduced by:
• levelling the appliance and installing it on a flat surface,
• separating and preventing contact of the appliance with the
cabinets,
• making sure the inside parts are correctly positioned,
• making sure the bottles and containers are not touching each
other.

bipolar mains switch is in the right position (i.e. power supplied to
the appliance).
• the safety protection devices in the domestic electrical system are
working.

The automatic ice-maker does
not work.
On hot days or if the room is warm, the motor naturally runs
longer. Furthermore, if the appliance door has been left open for a
while or if large amounts of food have been stored, the motor will
run longer in order to cool down the interior of the appliance.
Avoid locations in direct sunlight or near a source of heat.
There may be dust or fluff in the condenser.
Remove the front plinth (see installation manual) and clean the
condenser using a vacuum cleaner.
The doors may not be closed properly or the seals may not be
intact.
Check that the doors are closed properly and that the door seals
do not allow any air infiltration.
If the room is very humid, it is normal for moisture to build up
inside the appliance.
Install the appliance in a dry, well-ventilated place.
The air ducts may be blocked.
Make sure the air ducts inside the compartments are not blocked, as
this prevents the circulation of cold air.
There could be various causes
Check that:
• the doors close properly.
• the appliance is not near a heat source.
• the air ducts inside the compartments are not blocked, as this
prevents the circulation of cold air.
• the “Vacation mode” function is not enabled (see Quick Start Guide
for certain models only). If necessary, lower the temperature.
