Start-up and use
Starting the appliance
! After transportation of the appliance, carefully place it in an upright
position and wait at least 3 hours before connecting it to the
electricity mains, to make sure it operates as it should.
• Clean the inside of the refrigerator well using warm water and
bicarbonate of soda before placing food inside it.
• The appliance comes with a motor protection control system
which makes the compressor start approximately 8 minutes
after being switched on. The compressor also starts each time
the power supply is cut off whether voluntarily or involuntarily
(blackout).
Freezer Compartment
When the product is switched on the freezer compartment is set
to its default value of -18°C. We recommend that the SUPER
FREEZE function is set (the freezer status bar continues to display
the set value) in order to accelerate the cooling process of the
compartment; when the inside of the compartment has reached
its optimal temperature the function will be deactivated and the
food may be placed inside.
Refrigerator Compartment
When the appliance is switched on the refrigerator compartment
is set to its default value of +5°C. We recommend that the SUPER
COOL function is set (the refrigerator status bar continues to display
the set value) in order to accelerate the cooling process of the
compartment. After a few hours it will be cool enough for food to
be placed inside.
Navigating the display
Setting the temperatures:
If the product is switched on, the refrigerator and freezer
compartment displays will indicate the temperature values set at
that moment. To change them, simply press the - and + buttons
corresponding to the compartment for which you wish to change
the set temperature. More specifically, each time the buttons are
pressed, the temperature increases or decreases and the level of
cold generated inside the compartment is adjusted accordingly.
The temperature values that may be selected for the refrigerator
compartment are +8°C, +7°C, +6°C, +5°C, +4°C, +3°C and +2°C,
while the values that may be set for the freezer are -18°C, -19°C, 20°C, -21°C, -22°C, -24°C and -26°C.
When the “I-CARE” function is active, the appliance automatically
adjusts the temperatures according to the conditions inside and
outside the refrigerator, in order to minimise the amount of energy
consumed; the activation of this function is signalled by the I-CARE
LED on the keypad lighting up.
When the HOLIDAY function is active the temperature may not be
adjusted, however the appliance adjusts itself automatically so
that the optimal settings for the situation are used: +12°C for the
refrigerator compartment and -18°C for the freezer compartment.
The activation of this function is indicated by the HOLIDAY LED
lighting up.
When the ICE PARTY function has finished, press the ICE PARTY
button to stop the corresponding LED from flashing and to silence
the sound alert. The flashing and sound alerts indicate that the
function is complete and that the bottle should be removed from
the freezer compartment.
Child Lock
To activate the Child Lock function, press and hold the Child Lock
button for 2 sI-CAREnds; the activation of this button lock is
confirmed by a short beep and the illumination of the corresponding
LED on the keypad. To deactivate the function, press and hold
the Child Lock button for 2 sI-CAREnds; deactivation will be
confirmed by a short beep and by the corresponding LED switching
off.
Chiller system
No Frost
The No Frost system circulates cold air continuously to collect
humidity and prevent ice and frost formation. The system maintains
an optimal humidity level in the compartment, preserving the
original quality of the food, preventing the food from sticking
together and making defrosting a thing of the past. Do not block
the aeration cells by placing food or containers in direct contact
with the refrigerating back panel. Close bottles and wrap food
tightly.
Using the refrigerator to its full potential
• Place only cold or lukewarm foods in the compartment, never
hot foods (see Precautions and tips).
• Remember that cooked foods do not last longer than raw foods.
• Do not store liquids in open containers: they will increase the
level of humidity in the refrigerator and cause condensation to
form.
SHELVES: with or without grill.
Due to the special guides the shelves are removable and the height
is adjustable (see diagram), allowing easy storage of large
containers and food. Height can be adjusted without complete
removal of the shelf.
To activate and deactivate the functions, simply press the relevant
button; the function status will be signalled by the corresponding
LED on the keypad switching on or off.
Several of the functions (SUPER COOL, SUPER FREEZE, ICE
PARTY, I-CARE) are incompatible with others (HOLIDAY,...);
remember that there is a pre-established order of priority which
will help you to operate the product in the best possible way.
* Varies by number and/or position, available only on certain models.

TEMPERATURE Indicator light*: to identify the coldest area in
the refrigerator.
1. Check that OK appears clearly on the indicator light (see
diagram).
2. If the word “OK” does not appear it means that the temperature
is too high: adjust the REFRIGERATOR OPERATION knob to a
higher position (colder) and wait approximately 10 hours until
the temperature has been stabilised.
3. Check the indicator light again: if necessary, readjust it following
the initial process. If large quantities of food have been added
or if the refrigerator door has been opened frequently, it is normal
for the indicator not to show OK. Wait at least 10 hours before
adjusting the REFRIGERATOR OPERATION knob to a higher
setting.
! To avoid blocking the air circulation inside the freezer
compartment, it is advisable not to obstruct the ventilation holes
with food or containers.
! Do not open the door during freezing.
! If there is a power cut or malfunction, do not open the freezer
door. This will help maintain the temperature inside the freezer,
ensuring that foods are conserved for at least 9 -14 hours.
Easy Ice *
The double tub was designed to optimise space in the freezer
compartment and to ensure that ice is always readily available.
The trays can be stacked or filled and used separately.
Furthermore, the special fastening system makes Easy Ice an
extremely flexible solution, as it can be positioned in the right or
left part of the top drawers.
Food Care Zone *
Area dedicated to the storage of fresh food, such as meat and
fish. Thanks to the low temperature inside the compartment, the
Food Care Zone extends the period of time for which the food can
be stored, keeping it fresh for up to a week.
Dual led *
Thanks to the powerful light it emits, the new dual LED lighting system
offers a clear view of all foods, with no shadowy areas.
If the LEDs need to be replaced, please contact the Technical
Assistance Service.
Maintenance and care
Switching the appliance off
During cleaning and maintenance it is necessary to disconnect
the appliance from the electricity supply:
1. Press the ON/OFF button to switch off the appliance.
2. Pull the plug out of the socket.
Using the freezer to its full potential
• Adjust the temperature using the display.
• Fresh food that needs to be frozen must not come into contact
with food that has already been defrosted. Fresh food must be
stored in the top FREEZER and STORAGE compartment where
the temperature drops below -18°C and guarantees rapid
freezing.
• To freeze fresh food in the best and safest way possible, activate
the SUPER FREEZE function 24 hours before placing the food in
the freezer. After placing the food inside, activate the SUPER
FREEZE function again; it will be deactivated automatically after
24 hours;
• Do not re-freeze food that is defrosting or that has already been
defrosted. These foods must be cooked and eaten (within 24
hours).
• Do not place glass bottles which contain liquids, and which
are corked or hermetically sealed in the freezer because they
could break.
• The maximum quantity of food that may be frozen daily is
indicated on the plate containing the technical properties
located on the bottom left side of the refrigerator compartment
(for example: Kg/24h: 4).
* Varies by number and/or position, available only on certain models.
! If this procedure is not followed, the alarm may sound. This alarm
does not indicate a malfunction. To restore normal operation, hold
the ON/OFF button down for more than two seconds. To disconnect
the appliance, follow points 1 and 2 above.

Precautions and tips
! The appliance was designed and manufactured in compliance
with international safety standards. The following warnings are
provided for safety reasons and must be read carefully.
This appliance complies with the following Community Directives:
- 73/23/EEC of 19/02/73 (Low Voltage) and subsequent amendments;
-89/336/EEC of 03.05.89 (Electromagnetic Compatibility) and
subsequent amendments;
- 2002/96/CE.
General safety
• The appliance was designed for domestic use inside the home
and is not intended for commercial or industrial use.
• The appliance must be used to store and freeze food products
by adults only and according to the instructions in this manual.
• The appliance must not be installed outdoors, even in covered
areas. It is extremely dangerous to leave the appliance exposed
to rain and storms.
• Do not touch the appliance with bare feet or with wet or moist
hands and feet.
• Do not touch the internal cooling elements: this could cause
skin abrasions or frost/freezer burns.
• When unplugging the appliance always pull the plug from the
mains socket, do not pull on the cable.
• Before cleaning and maintenance, always switch off the
appliance and disconnect it from the electrical supply. It is not
sufficient to set the temperature adjustment knobs on ON/OFF
(appliance off) to eliminate all electrical contact.
• In the case of a malfunction, under no circumstances should
you attempt to repair the appliance yourself. Repairs carried
out by inexperienced persons may cause injury or further
malfunctioning of the appliance.
• Do not use any sharp or pointed utensils or electrical equipment
- other than the type recommended by the manufacturer - inside
the frozen food storage compartments.
• Do not put ice cubes taken directly from the freezer into your mouth.
• This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or lack of experience
and knowledge unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person
responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to
ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
• Keep packaging material out of the reach of children! It can
become a choking or suffocation hazard.
Disposal
• Observe local environmental standards when disposing
packaging material for recycling purposes.
• The European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and
Electronic Equipment (WEEE), requires that old household
electrical appliances must not be disposed of in the normal
unsorted municipal waste stream. Old appliances must be
collected separately in order to optimise the recovery and recycling
of the materials they contain and reduce the impact on human
health and the environment. The crossed out “wheeled bin” symbol
on the product reminds you of your obligation, that when you
dispose of the appliance it must be separately collected.
Consumers should contact their local authority or retailer for
information concerning the correct disposal of their old appliance.
Respecting and conserving the environment
• Install the appliance in a fresh and well-ventilated room. Ensure
that it is protected from direct sunlight and do not place it near
heat sources.
• Try to avoid keeping the door open for long periods or opening
the door too frequently in order to conserve energy.
• Do not fill the appliance with too much food: cold air must
circulate freely for food to be preserved properly. If circulation
is impeded, the compressor will work continuously.
• Do not place hot food directly into the refrigerator. The internal
temperature will increase and force the compressor to work
harder and will consume more energy.
• Defrost the appliance if ice forms (see Maintenance). A thick
layer of ice makes cold transference to food products more
difficult and results in increased energy consumption.
Troubleshooting
If the appliance does not work, before calling for Assistance (see
Assistance), check for a solution from the following list.
