PRODUCT SAFETY
7. Never put ice cubes just removed from the freezer into
your mouth because they could stick to your mouth and
cause burns.
8. Never clean the appliance or perform maintenance without
first disconnecting it from the electrical mains. Turning the
thermostat knob to the "OFF" setting does not suffice to
break all electrical contact with the mains.
9. Before having your old refrigerator picked up for disposal,
remove or make inoperable any locking devices to prevent
children who might play in or around the appliance from
being locked inside.
10. Before calling for service/assistance in the case of malfunction, consult the chapter entitled “TROUBLESHOOTING"
to determine whether it is possible to eliminate the problem. Do not try to repair the problem by trying to access the
internal components of the appliance.
11. If damaged, the power supply cord on this appliance
must necessarily be replaced by our service centre because
special tools are required for replacement.
12. Do not use electric appliances inside the compartment
for food storage, if these are not those recommended by
the manufacturer.
13. At the end of the functional life of your appliance –
containing cyclopentane gas in the insulation foam and
perhaps gas R600a (isobutane) in the refrigeration circuit –
the latter should made safe before being sent to the dump.
For this operation, please contact your dealer or the Local
Organisation in charge of waste disposal.
ATTENTION
Read your manual carefully since it contains instructions
which will ensure safe installation, use and maintenance of
your appliance.
Your Refrigerator is built to International safety standards
(EN60) and has been awarded the European approval mark
(IMQ) for compliance with UK electrical safety requirements.
It also meets the EC standards on the prevention and elimination of radio interference (EC directive 87/308 - 02.06.89).
1. This appliance must not be installed outdoors - not even
in an area protected by a roof. It is extremely dangerous to
leave it exposed to rain or storms.
2. It must only be used by adults and exclusively to refrigerate and freeze foodstuffs, following the instructions for use
contained in this manual.
3. Do not ever touch or handle the appliance with bare feet
or with wet hands or feet.
4. It is highly recommended that you do not use extension
cords or multiple socket adapters. If the refrigerator is installed between cabinets, make sure that the cord is not
bent or dangerously pinched or compressed.
5. Never pull on the cord or the refrigerator to remove the
plug from the wall socket - this is very dangerous.
6. Never touch the cooling components within the appliance, especially with wet hands because this could result in
injury.
INSTALLATION
To ensure that the appliance operates properly and to reduce energy consumption, it is important that the appliance
is installed correctly.
Ventilation
The compressor and condenser generate heat and, therefore, need
to be ventilated properly. Avoid placing the appliance in direct
sunlight, or next to an electric stove or similar appliance. Areas
not adequately ventilated are not suitable for this appliance.
Therefore it should be installed in a room with an opening (eg.
window) that provides the appropriate amount of air re-circulation.
It is also important that the room is not too humid.
During installation, make sure not to cover or obstruct the
grates that allow for proper ventilation of the appliance.
For proper ventilation, you must leave:
- at least 10cm between the top of any cabinets above it.
- at least 5cm between the sides of the appliance to any
adjacent cabinet/walls.
Away from Heat
Avoid positioning the appliance in a place where it is directly
exposed to sunlight or near an oven, hob or the like.
Level
Electrical Connection and Earthing
Before proceeding with the electrical connection, make sure
that the voltage indicated on the rating plate, located within
the fridge corresponds to the mains voltage in your home
and that the socket is fitted with a standard earthing wire in
accordance with safety standards for 46/90 systems. If the
socket is not fitted with an earthing wire, the manufacturer
will not be held liable for any damages and/or injuries arising out of the use of the appliance. Do not use multiple
sockets or adapters. Position the appliance in such a way
that you can access the socket where it is plugged in.
Insufficient power?
The electrical socket must be able to handle the maximum
power load of the appliance, which is indicated on the rating
plate located within the freezer.
Before making the electrical connection ...
After the appliance has been delivered, place it in the vertical upright position and wait at least 3 hours before inserting the plug into the socket in order to ensure that it functions properly.
The appliance must be level. If the floor is not level, use the
front adjustable feet to level the appliance.
3
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
Fitting a new plug
Your appliance is supplied with a 13amp fused plug
that can be plugged into a 13amp socket for
immediate use. Before using the appliance please
read the instructions below.
IMPORTANT:
WIRES IN THE MAINS LEAD ARE COLOURED IN
ACCORDANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING CODE...
WARNING:
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
Green and Yellow - Earth
Blue
- Neutral
Brown
- Live
Replacing fuse covers:
When replacing a faulty fuse, a 13amp ASTA
approved fuse to BS 1362 should always be used
and the fuse cover re-fitted.
If the fuse cover is lost, the plug must not be used
until a replacement is obtained.
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead may
not correspond with the coloured markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as
follows:
- Connect Green and Yellow wire to
terminal marked 'E' or
or coloured
Green and Yellow.
- Connect Brown wire to terminal marked
'L' or coloured red or brown.
- Connect Blue wire to terminal marked 'N'
or coloured Black or Blue.
Replacement fuse covers:
If a replacement fuse cover is fitted, it must be of the
correct colour as indicated by the coloured marking
or the colour that is embossed in words on the base
of the plug.
If a 13amp plug (BS 1363) is used it must be
fitted with a 13amp fuse. A 15amp plug must be
protected by a 15amp fuse, either in the plug or
adaptor or at the distribution board.
Changing the plug:
Removing the plug
If your appliance has a non-rewireable moulded plug
and you should wish to remove it to add a longer
cable or to re-route the mains cable through
partitions, units etc. please ensure that either:
- The plug is replaced by a fused 13amp rewireable plug bearing the BSI mark of
approval.
or
- The mains cable is wired directly into a
13amp cable outlet, controlled by a
switch (in compliance with BS 5733)
which is accessible without moving the
appliance.
If you are in any doubt about the electrical
supply to your machine, consult a qualified
electrician before use.

GETTING YOUR APPLIANCE READY FOR USE
NOTICE
After the appliance has been delivered, stand it in the
upright position and wait approximately 3 hours before connecting it to the electrical outlet to guarantee
that it operates properly.
Thermostat setting
The thermostat setting will depend on the location of the
appliance, room temperature and how often the door is
opened. After plugging the appliance into the socket, make
sure that the light is on when the door is opened. When
starting the appliance for the first time turn the thermostat
control knob (A) to the coldest setting for 24hrs then adjust
accordingly. After a few hours have passed, you can place
fresh food in the refrigerator compartment and frozen foods
into the freezer.
How to use the refrigerator compartment...
The thermostat automatically regulates the temperature inside the appliance
1 = less cold
5 = colder
It is recommended that a medium setting be used.
To increase the amount of space, optimize arrangement and
improve appearance, this appliance has a “cooling area”
located within the back panel of the refrigerator compartment. When the appliance is operating, this panel may be
covered with frost or droplets of water depending on
whether the compressor is operating or not at a given time.
Do not be concerned about this! The refrigerator is operating normally.
If the thermostat knob is positioned on higher settings while
the refrigerator is heavily filled and the ambient temperature high, the appliance may run continuously, resulting in
the formation of frost on the back cooling area. This will
lead to an increase in energy consumption.
To avoid this situation, just turn the thermostat knob
to a lower setting so that the appliance defrosts automatically.
Storing Food in the Refrigerator Compartment

What Not to Store in the Refrigerator
Garlic (transmits odour), onions and leeks.
Bananas (they will turn black).
Citrus fruits.
Potatoes and root vegetables (store in dark, dry places).
6
- Within the refrigerator compartment, the air circulates naturally, with the colder air falling because it is heavier. This is
the reason why meat and cheeses should be placed above
the vegetable crisper.
- Please follow our instructions carefully on maximum storage time: any food, even the freshest, will not remain edible
for any extended amount of time.
- Contrary to popular belief, cooked foods do not store any
longer than raw food.
- Do not place liquids in containers without covering them
because this will lead to an increase in the level of moisture
within the refrigerator, causing the formation of frost.
- Remember to cool hot food before storing otherwise the
temperature inside the appliance will increase, causing the
compressor to work harder and use more energy.
- Be careful not to place containers (plastic or glass), food or
other objects in direct contact with the cooling area of the
back wall of the refrigerator. This could harm the food, increase energy consumption and facilitate the formation of
condensate (on food, containers, etc.).
- The refrigerator compartment is equipped with convenient, removable shelves (Fig. 1) which can be adjusted for
height using the shelf guides. This allows you to place even
large containers and foodstuffs in the refrigerator.
The side bottle rack can be used either for storing bottles
(Fig. 2) as well as several cans (2-4) placed horizontally (Fig.
3). If not in use, the bottle/can rack can be tipped up and
away to make more room inside the refrigerator.

Fig. 2
Fig. 3
How to use the freezer compartment...
- In order to freeze and then thaw foods optimally, it is recommended that you divide food into small portions so that
they freeze quickly and uniformly. The packages should be
clearly marked with the content and the date they were
frozen.
- Do not open the freezer door in the event of a power
failure or malfunction. This precaution will slow the rise in
temperature within the compartment. If the door is not
opened, frozen and fast-frozen foods will remain in their
current state for approximately 9-14 hours.
- Do not place full bottles in the freezer: they could easily
burst because all liquids increase in volume when they freeze.
- Fill the ice cube trays about 3/4 full.
- If the ambient temperature remains below 14°C for an
extended period of time, the temperature needed for extended storage of food in the freezer will not be reached,
resulting in reduced storage life of the food.
- For the preparation of food to be frozen, please consult a specialized manual.
- Food that has be thawed, even partially, must not be refrozen: you must cook it in order to consume it (within 24
hours) or to freeze it once again.
- Fresh foods that you intend to freeze must not be placed
in contact with those that are already frozen or those that
have been fast-frozen. Rather, they must placed atop the
grate in the freezer compartment, in contact with the walls
of the compartment (back or side) if possible. Please keep in
mind that proper conservation of frozen foods depends on
the speed with which they are frozen.
- During the freezing process, avoid opening the door of the
freezer.
- The maximum daily quantity of food that can be frozen is
indicated on the rating plate located to the left of the vegetable crisper.

ENERGY SAVING TIPS
- Install the Appliance Correctly
This means that the appliance should be installed away from
heat sources or direct sunlight in a well ventilated room.
- Use the Right Temperature Setting
A setting which is too cold increases energy consumption.
- Do not Overfill
To conserve food properly, the cold air must circulate freely
within the refrigerator. If it is overfilled, this will prevent proper
air circulation, forcing the compressor to work continuously.
- Close the Doors
Open your refrigerator as little as possible because each time
you do so you loose much of the cold air. To raise the temperature to the proper level again, the motor must work for
a long time, consuming energy.
- Keep an Eye on the Seals
Keep the seals clean and make sure that they adhere well to
the door. This alone will ensure that no cold air escapes.
8
- No Hot Foods
A hot pot or pan placed in the refrigerator immediately raises
the temperature several degrees. Let hot cookware and food
cool to ambient temperature before placing them in the refrigerator.
- Defrost the Freezer
Check the thickness of the frost on the walls of the freezer
and immediately defrost it if the layer of frost is too thick.

CARING FOR YOUR APPLIANCE
Before doing any cleaning, disconnect the appliance
from the electricity (by pulling out the plug or turning
off the general switch in your home).
Defrosting
WARNING: do not damage the refrigeration circuit.
Do not use mechanical devices or other tools to speed
up the defrosting process, unless they have been recommended by the manufacturer.
How to Defrost the Refrigerator
This appliance defrosts automatically and the water is
channeled to the back toward the drain installed for this
purpose (fig. 4). Here, the heat produced by the compressor
will make it evaporate. The only thing you must do is to
periodically check and clean the hole of the drain, which is
located behind the vegetable crispers, so that the water
drains properly.
How to Defrost the Freezer
- Every so often, remove the frost with the scraper provided
with the appliance (do not use knives or metal objects).
- If the frost is more than 15 mm thick, the freezer must be
defrosted.
Proceed as follows: turn the thermostat knob (A) to the ·
setting . Then wrap all the frozen and fast-frozen food in
newspaper, placing it either in the refrigerator or in a cool
place. Leave the freezer door open so that the frost thaws
completely. You can speed this process by placing containers of warm water in the compartment.
Cleaning and maintenance
Always unplug the appliance from the mains before
cleaning.
- Your appliance is manufactured with hygienic odourless
materials. To preserve these characteristics, always use sealed
containers for strong smelling foods to avoid the formation
of odours that are difficult to remove.
- Use only a water and bicarbonate solution: Clean the
internal and exterior of your appliance with a sponge soaked
with a warm water and sodium bicarbonate solution, which
is also a good disinfectant. If you do not have any sodium
bicarbonate at home, use neutral detergent.
- What not to use: Do not use abrasive detergents, bleach or
detergents containing ammonia. Never use solvent based
products.
- Dishwashable: All the removable parts can be cleaned by
soaking in hot soapy water or detergent. If you own a
dishwasher, you may wash these parts in the dishwasher.
Remember to dry thoroughly before replacing them.
- Discontinued use of the appliance: If the appliance is not in
use for any length of time, remember to clean the interior
and dry thoroughly, leaving the doors open to prevent the
formation of bad odours and mould.
- Replacing the light bulb. The bulb for lighting the interior
of the appliance is located at the back of the thermostat
box. Unscrew the burnt bulb and replace it with another
bulb of no more than 15 Watt, follow the instructions
illustrated in fig. 5.

Recycling & Disposal Information
As part of Hotpoint's continued commitment to helping the environment, Hotpoint reserves the right to
use quality recycled components to keep down customer costs and minimise material wastage.
Please dispose of packaging and old appliances carefully.
To minimise risk of injury to children, remove the door, plug and cut mains cable off flush with the
appliance. Dispose of these parts separately to ensure that the appliance can no longer be plugged into a
mains socket, and the door cannot be locked shut.
