PREPARING THE REFRIGERATOR /FREEZER
To prepare your appliance for use and check that it is running correctly, take the following steps.
Install all shelves and compartments
removed during transport and place them in
the correct position.
The interior light of the appliance will light
up when the door is open.
This interior light will go out when the door
is closed
You are advised to clean the appliance and
accessories before switching the appliance
on for the first time to remove any dust that
accumulated during packing and shipping.
Please clean the water dispenser (select
models only) with an detergent, especially if
there is an odor.
Your appliance is operated by a
compressor which switches “on and off” to
maintain the internal temperature. When
the compressor is new, it requires running
in for a period of up to five months. During
this period, it may be slightly noisy. This is
quite normal and does not represent a fault.
Switch on the appliance for approximately 2
hours before loading it with frozen food for
the first time. Do not load with frozen food
until the freezer temperature is at least -18°C.
If you want to store frozen food as rapidly as
possible, set the temperature control to the
coldest temperature (-25°C) and let the
appliance operate for one hour.
The appliance is preset for normal operation.
We recommend temperatures of +3°C in the
refrigerator and -19°C in the freezer.
Store food once the temperature in the
refrigerator is sufficiently low. It takes a few
hours after starting the refrigerator to reach
the proper temperature.
If the appliance does not operate correctly,
check the electricity supply. If the problem
persists, contact your dealer.

STORING FOOD IN THE REFRIGERATOR OR FREEZER
When storing food in the appliance, follow the
recommendations below.
• Allow warm food and beverages to cool down before
storing them in the appliance.
• Ensure that food is well-wrapped or covered before it is
stored. This will prevent food from dehydrating,
deteriorating in color or losing flavor and will help
maintain freshness. Fruits and vegetables need not be
wrapped, provided that they are stored in the refrigerator
vegetable drawers.
You are advised not to wrap the food with paper and
store it in the refrigerator and freezer.
It could be the cause of odor generation.
• Never let any oil or grease come into contact with the
plastic fittings or door seals, as these materials easily
become porous.
• Never store any explosive substances inside the
appliance. High-proof alcohol should only be stored
upright in tightly sealed containers.
• Please keep the space between shelf and the rear wall
of the enclosed space of the cabinet 1/2inch apart for air
circulation.

Upper freezer drawer
Middle/lower freezer drawer
Wrapping food
Pack the food in suitably sized portions for your household.
Vegetable and fruit portions should be no heavier than 2 pounds, while meat portions can be up to 5.5 lbs.
Smaller portions freeze through more quickly and the quality is better maintained when defrosting and preparing the food.
It is important to seal food in airtight bags or containers before freezing to prevent it from losing its taste or dehydrating.
Wrap the food, press out any air and seal it airtight.
Note
Suitable wrapping materials:
Plastic bags, cling-film, aluminium foil and freezer containers. These items are available from any dealer.
Unsuitable wrapping materials:
Wrapping paper, wax paper, cellophane, bin bags or used carrier bags.
These can cause odors to be generated.
Suitable sealing materials:
Rubber bands, plastic clips, string, freezer tape or similar.
Plastic film and bags may be heat-sealed using a special sealing iron or press.
Before placing a package in the freezer, it should be clearly labelled with the contents and date of freezing.
MAKING ICE

PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
The appliance is not operating at all or the
temperature is too high
The front corners and sides of the appliance are
warm and condensation starts to form
• Check that the power plug is correctly connected.
• Is the temperature control on the front panel correctly
set?
• Does sun shine on the appliance or are there heat
sources nearby?
• Is the back of the appliance too near to the wall?
• Heat-proof pipes are installed in the front corners of
the appliance to prevent condensation from forming.
When the surrounding temperature rises, this may not
always be effective. However, this is not abnormal.
• In very humid weather, condensation may form on the
outer surface of the appliance when moisture in the air
comes into contact with the cool surface of the
appliance.
The food in the refrigerator is frozen
• Is the temperature control on the front panel set to the
coldest temperature?
• Is the surrounding temperature too low?
• Did you put food with a high water content in the
refrigerator?
You can hear a liquid bubbling in the appliance
• Please note that this noise is caused by the refrigerant
circuit and is not a problem.
There is a bad smell inside the appliance
There are unusual noises
• Do not wrap food with paper.
• Store foods covered and clean the cold inlet.
• Check that the appliance is installed on a stable, level
floor.
• Is the back of the appliance too near to the wall?
• Have any foreign objects fallen behind or under the
appliance?
• Is the noise coming from the compressor in the
appliance?
• A ticking sound may be heard inside the appliance; this
is normal. This sound occurs when the various
accessories contract or expand.
There is a layer of frost on the surface of stored
food.
• Space the food out as much as possible to improve
ventilation.
• Is the door fully closed?
Condensation forms on the inside wall of the
appliance and around vegetables
• Food with a high water content is stored uncovered
with a high humidity level or the door has been left
open for a long time.
• Store the food with a cover or in sealed containers.
USAGE PRECAUTIONS
Store food with a high water content at the front of
a refrigerator shelf.
Tips
Store hot food in the appliance only after it has
cooled.
• If you store cold food, you save on electricity and
improve refrigeration.
Power Saving Tips
• Install the appliance in a cool, dry room with adequate ventilation.
Ensure that it is not exposed to direct sunlight and never put it near a direct source of heat (radiator, for example).
• Never block any vents or grilles on the appliance.
• Allow warm food to cool down before placing it in the appliance.
• Put frozen food in the refrigerator to thaw.
You can then use the low temperatures of the frozen products to cool food in the refrigerator.
• Defrost the freezer when ice builds up. A thick coat of ice will impair the transfer of cold to the frozen products,
thereby increasing power consumption.
• Do not keep the door of the appliance open for too long when putting food in or taking food out.
The shorter time the door is opened, the less ice will form in the freezer.
• When freezing food or storing it in the freezer, place the food directly on the freezer elements in the top container.
