Operation
Switching on
Insert the plug into the wall socket.
Turn the Temperature regulator clockwise to a medium
setting.
A medium setting is generally the most suitable.
Temperature regulation
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.
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.
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.
Switching off
To turn off the appliance, turn the Temperature regulator
to the "O" position.
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 brand-new product, then dry thoroughly.
Important! Do not use detergents or abrasive powders,
as these will damage the finish.
Daily use
Movable shelves
Positioning the door shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with a
series of runners so that
the shelves can be positioned as desired.
To permit storage of food
packages of various sizes,
the door shelves can be
placed at different heights.
Gradually pull the shelf in
the direction of the arrows
until it comes free, then
reposition as required.

Helpful hints and tips
Normal Operating Sounds
Hints for fresh food refrigeration
• 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.
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 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 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.
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 or a vacuum cleaner.
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.

Defrosting of the refrigerator
Periods of non-operation
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.
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.
Important! 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.
What to do if…
