Operation
Switching on
Insert the plug into the wall socket.
Turn the Temperature regulator clockwise to a
medium setting.
Switching off
To turn off the appliance, turn the Temperature
regulator to the "O" position.
Temperature regulation
The temperature is automatically regulated.
To operate the appliance, proceed as follows:
• turn the Temperature regulator toward lower
settings to obtain the minimum coldness.
• turn the Temperature regulator toward higher
settings to obtain the maximum coldness.
However, the exact setting should be chosen
keeping in mind that the temperature inside the
appliance depends on:
• room temperature
• how often the door is opened
• the quantity of food stored
• the location of the appliance.
Important! If the ambient temperature is high
or the appliance is fully loaded, and the
appliance is set to the lowest temperatures, it
may run continuously causing frost to form on
the rear wall. In this case the dial must be set to
a higher temperature to allow automatic
defrosting and therefore reduced energy
consumption.
A medium setting is generally the most
suitable.
First use
Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first time,
wash the interior and all internal accessories
with lukewarm water and some neutral soap so

Helpful hints and tips
Normal Operating Sounds
• You may hear a faint gurgling and a bubbling
sound when the refrigerant is pumped
through the coils or tubing. This is correct.
• When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is
being pumped around and you will hear a
whirring sound and a pulsating noise from
the compressor. This is correct.
• The thermic dilatation might cause a sudden
cracking noise. It is natural, not dangerous
physical phenomenon. This is correct.
• When the compressor switches on or
switches off, you will hear a faint "click" of
the temperature regulator. This is correct.
Hints for energy saving
• Do not open the door frequently or leave it
open longer than absolutely necessary.
• If the ambient temperature is high and the
Temperature Regulator is set to low temperature and the appliance is fully loaded, the
compressor may run continuously, causing
frost or ice on the evaporator. If this happens,
set the Temperature Regulator toward warmer settings to allow automatic defrosting and
so a saving in electricity consumption.

Hints for fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance:
• do not store warm food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator
• do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it
has a strong flavour
• position food so that air can circulate freely
around it
Hints for refrigeration
Useful hints:
Meat (all types) : wrap in polythene bags and
place on the glass shelf above the vegetable
drawer.
For safety, store in this way only one or two
days at the most.
Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc..: these should
be covered and may be placed on any shelf.
Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly cleaned and placed in the special drawer(s) provided.
Butter and 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.

Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not
packed, must not be kept in the refrigerator.
Care and cleaning
Caution! Unplug the appliance before
carrying out any maintenance operation.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in
its cooling unit; maintenance and recharging must therefore only be carried out by authorized technicians.
Periodic cleaning
The equipment has to be cleaned regularly:
• clean the inside and accessories with lukewarm water and some neutral soap.
• regularly check the door seals and wipe
clean to ensure they are clean and free from
debris.
• rinse and dry thoroughly.
Defrosting of the refrigerator
Frost is automatically eliminated from the evaporator of the refrigerator compartment every
time the motor compressor stops, during normal use. The defrost water drains out through a
trough into a special container at the back of
the appliance, over the motor compressor,
where it evaporates.
It is important to periodically clean the defrost
water drain hole in the middle of the refrigerator
compartment channel to prevent the water
overflowing and dripping onto the food inside.
Use the special cleaner provided, which you
will find already inserted into the drain hole.
Important! Do not pull, move or damage any
pipes and/or cables inside the cabinet.
Never use detergents, abrasive powders, highly
perfumed cleaning products or wax polishes to
clean the interior as this will damage the
surface and leave a strong odour.
Clean the condenser (black grill) and the compressor at the back of the appliance with a
brush. This operation will improve the performance of the appliance and save electricity consumption.
Important! Take care of not to damage the
cooling system.
Many proprietary kitchen surface cleaners contain chemicals that can attack/damage the
plastics used in this appliance. For this reason
it is recommended that the outer casing of this
appliance is only cleaned with warm water with
a little washing-up liquid added.
After cleaning, reconnect the equipment to the
mains supply.
Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long periods, take the following precautions:
• disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
• remove all food
• defrost (if foreseen) and clean the appliance
and all accessories
• leave the door/doors ajar to prevent unpleasant smells.
If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to
check it once in a while to prevent the food inside from spoiling in case of a power failure.
