SCRAPPING OLD APPLIANCES
This appliance is marked according to the European directive 2012/19/EU on Waste Electrical and
Electronic Equipment (WEEE).
WEEE contains both polluting substances (which can cause negative consequences for the
environment) and basic components (which can be re-used). It is important to have WEEE subjected to
specific treatments, in order to remove and dispose properly all pollutants, and recover and recycle all
materials.
Individuals can play an important role in ensuring that WEEE does not become an environmental issue; it is
essential to follow some basic rules:
- WEEE should not be treated as household waste;
- WEEE should be handed over to the relevant collection points managed by the municipality or by
registered companies. In many countries, for large WEEE, home collection could be present.
In many countries, when you buy a new appliance, the old one may be returned to the retailer who has
to collect it free of charge on a one-to-one basis, as long as the equipment is of equivalent type and has
the same functions as the supplied equipment.

t h e r e f r i g e r a t o r, t h e i n t e r n a l
temperature will increase resulting
in the compressor having to work
harder and will consume more
energy.

●
Hints for freezing
When first starting-up or after a
period out of use, let the appliance run
at least 2 hours on the higher settings

frozen and to make it possible to
subsequently thaw only the quantity
required.
● Wrap up the food in aluminum foil or
polyethylene food wraps which are
airtight.
● Do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to
touch the food which is already frozen
to avoid temperature rise of the latter.
● Iced products, if consumed
immediately after removal from the
freezer compartment, will probably
cause frost burns to the skin.
