Connect the appliance to the mains power supply.

A beep may be emitted by some models, to indicate that the temperature alarm has intervened: press and hold the button to switch off acoustic alarms. As applicable, insert the anti-bacterial/antiodour filter into the fan as indicated on the filter package.

Note: after switching on, the refrigerator needs approximately 4/5 hours to reach the correct temperature for storing a normal fridge load of food.



Clean the appliance regularly using a cloth and a solution of lukewarm water and neutral detergent specifically formulated for refrigerator interiors. Never use abrasive detergents. Clean inside the defrost water drain outlet on the rear wall of the refrigerator

(near the fruit and vegetable crisper drawer) regularly, using the tool supplied with the appliance so as to ensure defrost water is removed correctly (see figure).

Before all cleaning or maintenance procedures, unplug the appliance from the mains or disconnect the electricity supply.


(depending on the model)

Always unplug the refrigerator before replacing any light bulbs, then follow the relevant instructions in accordance with the type of lighting fitted in your appliance.

Only use bulbs of the same type, which can be requested from the After-Sales Service and authorised dealers.

Lighting type 1)

1. Loosen the screws and take off the lamp cover.

2. The lamp has a bayonet bulb and needs to be pulled out, not unscrewed, following the directions of the arrows as indicated.

3. After the new bulb has been inserted, replace the lamp cover and wait five minutes before plugging the appliance back in.



Lighting type 2)

To remove the light bulb, turn anticlockwise as shown in the figure. Wait for 5 minutes before reconnecting the appliance.

Lighting type 3)

If the product has LED lighting which is in need of replacing, contact the After-Sales Service for assistance.

LED lights last longer than normal bulbs, they illuminate better and are more environmentally friendly



Unplug the appliance from the mains, then empty, defrost (if necessary) and clean it. Leave the doors ajar, so that air can circulate inside the compartments. This will prevent the formation of mould and bad odours.


Keep the doors closed to allow the stored food to stay cold as long as possible. Do not refreeze partially thawed food. If the blackout persists, the blackout alarm may sound (depending on the model).


The refrigerator compartment is designed for the storage of fresh food and beverages.

Refrigerator compartment defrosting is completely automatic.

Droplets of water on the rear wall of the compartment indicate that the periodic automatic defrost cycle is in progress. The defrost water is automatically routed to a drain outlet and into a container from which it evaporates.

Depending on the model, the appliance may have a special box (“Meat & Fish” or “Zero Degrees”) which is ideal for the storage of fresh meat and fish.

Important: refrigerator accessories must not be washed in a dishwasher.

Note: the ambient temperature, the door opening frequency and the position of the appliance may affect temperatures inside the two compartments. Set the temperature in accordance with these factors.

Note: when there is a lot of moisture inside the refrigerator compartment and on the glass shelves in particular, condensation may form. In this case, we recommend closing any liquidfilled containers (e.g.: saucepans full of stock), wrapping foods with a high liquid content

(e.g.: vegetables) and setting the temperature to a warmer value.

Removing the crisper drawer

(depending on the model)

If your product only has a crisper drawer, to facilitate its removal we recommend emptying

(and, if necessary, removing) the two lower door trays beforehand.

Fan and anti-bacterial/anti-odour filter

(depending on the model)

The fan will ensure uniform air circulation inside the compartment, for improved food storage and excess moisture reduction. Do not obstruct the fan inlet. The fan can be activated/deactivated manually (see Quick Start Guide); when activated, it works automatically as necessary.



The freezer compartment stores frozen food (for the period indicated on the package) and freezes fresh food. The amount of fresh food that can be frozen in 24 hours is shown on the rating plate; place the food in the freezer compartment (see Quick Start Guide), leaving leaving enough space around the packages to allow air to circulate. Refreezing partially thawed food is not recommended. It is important to wrap food so that no water, moisture, or vapour may penetrate.

To save energy and prolong the life of the appliance, make sure hot foods are never placed inside it.

Note: the ambient temperature, door opening frequency and position of the appliance can affect the temperatures inside the two compartments. Set the temperature based on these factors.

Making ice cubes

Fill the ice cube tray (where provided) 2/3 full and place it in the freezer compartment. Never use sharp or pointed objects to remove the ice.

Removing drawers (depending on model)

Pull the drawers all the way out, lift them up a little and remove. To create more space, the freezer compartment can also be used as follows:

A) If the freezer compartment base resembles figure A, remove the upper drawers and/or lids. The lower drawer should be left in position. Make sure that, once the food has been placed on the racks/shelves, the door closes properly.


B) If the freezer compartment base resembles figure B, remove all drawers or lids. Make sure that, once the food has been placed on the racks/shelves, the door closes properly.

Removing the lid (if present)

Open the lid and remove the pin, as illustrated in figure C.





(depending on the model)

No Frost models do not need defrosting.

For other models, if frost forms in the freezer compartment, we recommend it is defrosted twice a year or whenever an excessive amount of frost has formed (3 mm thickness).

It is perfectly normal for frost to form.

The amount of frost which forms and the rate at which it builds up depends on room temperature and humidity, and on how often the door is opened. To defrost, unplug the appliance and remove all foodstuffs. Leave the door ajar to allow the frost to melt.

For products with a freezer compartment below the refrigerator compartment, the defrost water drain pipe can be removed (see figure) and a recipient placed underneath.

After defrosting, replace the drain pipe, making sure that no water is left in it. Clean inside the freezer compartment and dry carefully.

Switch the appliance back on and place the food back inside.



(depending on model)

The Meat & Fish box was designed specially to keep foods fresher for longer, without altering nutritional values or original freshness.

Do not store fruit or vegetables in this box, as the temperature may drop below 0°C, causing water contained in the food to freeze.

Temperature Adjustment

The temperature inside the Meat & Fish box is indicated by the position of the arm on the door of the box, and depends on the general temperature of the refrigerator compartment.

We recommend setting the temperature of the refrigerator compartment between +2° and +6°.

To work out if the temperature inside the Meat & Fish box is correct, refer to the pictures below:

When the arm points to the left, you need to raise the temperature in the refrigerator compartment.

When the arm is in the middle, the temperature is ok.

When the arm points to the right, you need to lower the temperature in the refrigerator compartment.

Important: when the function is activated and foods with a high water content are present, condensation may form on the shelves. In this case, disable the function temporarily.

Removing the Meat & Fish compartment:

To ensure correct operation of the product, adequate preservation of food and to optimise energy consumption, it is advisable not to remove the Meat & Fish compartment if the symbol (see Quick

Guide) is not present on the control panel. In all other cases, the

Meat & Fish compartment can be removed to obtain more space inside the refrigerator.

Proceed as follows:

1. Remove the compartment drawer (Figure 1).

2. Remove the drawer cover by releasing the bottom side clips

(Figure 2).

To reinstate the Meat & Fish compartment, make sure to refit the drawer cover before inserting the drawer and reactivating operation.

3. Press the “Meat & Fish compartment function” button on the control panel for 3 seconds, until the yellow indicator goes off.

To optimise energy consumption, it is advisable to deactivate the

Meat & Fish compartment and remove its components (except the shelf above the crisper drawers).

(depending on the model)

The “Zero Degrees” box is specifically designed to maintain a low temperature and a suitable humidity level, in order to keep foods fresher for longer (e.g. meat, fish, fruit and winter vegetables).

Activating and deactivating the box

The temperature inside the box, when active, is approximately 0°.

To activate the compartment, press the button shown in the figure for more than 1 second, until the symbol lights up

The symbol lit indicates that the compartment is functioning. Press the button again for more than 1 second to deactivate the compartment

The following factors are vital for the “Zero Degrees” box to work properly:

- the refrigerator compartment must be switched on

- the temperature of the refrigerator compartment must be between +2°C and +6°C

- the box must be inserted to enable activation

- no special functions, such as Standby, Cooling-Off, Vacation, that disable the product or the refrigerator compartment are selected.

If one of these special functions has been selected, the “Zero Degrees” box must be deactivated manually, and any fresh food inside it removed.


- if the symbol does not light up when the box is activated, check that the box is properly inserted; if the problem persists, contact your nearest authorized After-sales Service

- if the box is active and the drawer open, the symbol on the control panel may be deactivated automatically. If the drawer is inserted, the symbol will become active again

- irrespective of the state of the box, a slight noise may be heard: this is normal and is not a cause for concern.

- when the box is not active, the temperature inside it depends on the general temperature inside the refrigerator compartment. In this case, we recommend it is used to store fruit and vegetables which are not sensitive to cold temperatures (fruits of the forest, apples, apricots, carrots, spinach, lettuce, etc.).

Important: If the function is activated and food with high water content is present, condensate may form on the shelves. In this case, temporarily deactivate the function.

When placing small containers and food products on the top shelf of the “zero degrees” compartment, make sure they do not accidentally fall between the drawer and the back of the refrigerator compartment.

Removing the “Zero Degrees” box:

The “Zero Degrees” box can be removed to create more space inside the refrigerator. In this case proceed as follows:

- to facilitate removal, we recommend emptying (and if necessary, removing) the two lower door trays

- switch off the box

- pull out the drawer and the white plastic shelf underneath the box.


Note: the upper shelf and the side supports cannot be removed.

To restore “Zero Degrees” box operation, make sure you replace the white plastic shelf underneath the box before inserting the drawer and reactivating the function. To optimise energy consumption, we recommend you deactivate the “Zero Degrees” box and remove it.

Clean the box and all its parts regularly, using a cloth and a solution of warm water and neutral detergent specifically formulated for refrigerator interiors (take care not to immerse the white plastic shelf underneath the box in water).

Before cleaning the box (including the outside), remove the drawer so as to disconnect the box from the electricity supply.

Never use abrasive detergents.


Before contacting the After-Sales Service:

Switch the appliance on again to see if the problem has been solved. If it has not, unplug the appliance and wait for about an hour before switching on again.

If the appliance is still not working after you have gone through all the checks listed in the troubleshooting guide and switched it off then on again, contact the After-Sales Service to explain the problem and have the following information ready:

• the type of fault

• the model

• the type and serial number of the appliance

(given on the rating plate)

• the Service number (the number after the word SERVICE on the rating plate inside the appliance)

Note: the door opening direction can be changed. If this operation is performed by the After-Sales Service it is not covered by the warranty.


Warning - this appliance must be earthed

Fuse replacement

If the mains lead of this appliance is fitted with a BS 1363A

13amp fused plug, to change a fuse in this type of plug use an
