OPERATION
Press in the joint covers between the appliance and
the kitchen unit.
Before using
Fresh food refrigeration
Remove all securing tapes. Wash inside the
appliance with lukewarm water and bicarbonate of
soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water).
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.
Do not use soap or detergent as the smell may
linger. Dry thoroughly.
D724
Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the refrigerator is regulated
by a thermostat with 6 temperature positions and an
“OFF” (O) position.
Apply covers (B) on joint cover lugs and into hinge
holes.
Position 1 = minimum coldness
Position 6 = maximum coldness
B
D726
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & poultry or chicken):
wrap in polythene bags and place on the glass shelf
above the salad crispers.
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
The intermediate position is usually the most
suitable (3-4).
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad crispers.
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the
following factors:
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.
– room temperature
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
– how often the door is opened
– how much food is stored
– position of the appliance
Separate parts A, B, C, D as shown in the figure

position and replacing the screw.
D411
Important
It must be possible to disconnect the appliance from
the mains power supply; the plug must therefore be
easily accessible after installation.
Depending upon the position which you choose for
your appliance, you may wish to reverse the way in
which the door opens. To do this, refer to instructions
on “Door reversal directions”.
Positioning
This appliance should only be installed at a location
where the ambient temperature corresponds to the
climate classification indicated on the rating plate,
which is located at the left on the inside of the
appliance.
The following table shows which ambient
temperature is correct for each climate classification:
SN
+10°C to + 32°C
Defrosting
N
+16°C to + 32°C
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.
ST
+18°C to + 38°C
T
+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.
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.
D037
For building-in and door reversal instructions please
refer to the relevant instructions on the following
pages.
Remember to wash the defrost cleaner in hot soapy
water at regular intervals. Dry throughly before
replacing.

easily accessible after installation.
Depending upon the position which you choose for
your appliance, you may wish to reverse the way in
which the door opens. To do this, refer to instructions
on “Door reversal directions”.
Positioning
This appliance should only be installed at a location
where the ambient temperature corresponds to the
climate classification indicated on the rating plate,
which is located at the left on the inside of the
appliance.
The following table shows which ambient
temperature is correct for each climate classification:
SN
+10°C to + 32°C
Defrosting
N
+16°C to + 32°C
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.
ST
+18°C to + 38°C
T
+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.
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.

Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & poultry or chicken):
wrap in polythene bags and place on the glass shelf
above the salad crispers.
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
The intermediate position is usually the most
suitable (3-4).
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad crispers.
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the
following factors:
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.
– room temperature
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
– how often the door is opened
– how much food is stored
– position of the appliance
