Environment Protection
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. The insulation foam contains flammable gases: the appliance shall be disposed according to the applicable regulations to obtain from your local
authorities. Avoid damaging the cooling unit, especially at the rear near the heat exchanger. The materials used on this appliance marked by the symbol are recyclable.
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.
A medium setting is generally the most suitable.
However, the exact setting should be chosen keeping in mind that the temperature inside
the appliance depends on:
• room temperature
3) If a water connection is foreseen.
First use
7
• how often the door is opened
• the quantity of food stored
• the location of the appliance.
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.
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 as to remove the typical smell of a brandnew product, then dry thoroughly.
Do not use detergents or abrasive powders, as these will damage the finish.
DAILY USE
Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with a
series of runners so that the shelves can be positioned as desired.

Helpful hints and tips
Positioning the door shelves
The model is equipped with a variable storage box which is fitted under a door shelf compartment and can be slide sideways.
For more thorough cleaning, the top and bottom door shelves can be easily removed and
refitted in position
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
Care and cleaning
9
• 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 warm water and bicarbonate of soda (5 ml to 0,5
liter of water)
• regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure they are clean and free from
debris
• rinse and dry thoroughly.
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.
Once a year remove the ventilation grill at the base of the appliance and clean the air channels with a vacuum cleaner. This operation will improve the performance of the appliance
and save electricity consumption.
CAUTION!
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.

Care and cleaning
Defrosting of the refrigerator
P
F
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 (F) situated under the salad
drawers to prevent the water overflowing and dripping onto the food inside. Use the special cleaner provided (P), which you will find already inserted into the drain hole.
Cleaning the air channels
1. Remove the plinth (1), then the ventilation grid (2).
2. Clean the ventilation grid.
3. Carefully pull the air deflector out (3),
checking that there is no water left from
the defrosting.
4. Clean the lower part of the appliance with
a vacuum cleaner.
3
Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long periods, take the following precautions:
1. disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
2. remove all food
3. defrost and clean the appliance and all accessories
4. leave the door/doors open to prevent unpleasant smells.
