Start-up and use
Starting the appliance
! Before starting the appliance, follow the installation
instructions (see Installation).
! Before connecting the appliance, clean the compartments and
accessories well with lukewarm water and bicarbonate.
1. Insert the plug into the socket and ensure that the internal light
illuminates.
2. Turn the TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob to an average
value. After a few hours you will be able to put food in the
refrigerator.
Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the refrigerator compartment automatically
adjusts itself according to the position of the thermostat knob.
= warmest
= coldest
We recommend, however, a medium position.
The cooling section of the refrigerator is located inside the back wall
of the refrigerator compartment for increased space and improved
aesthetics. During operation, the back wall will be covered in frost or
water droplets depending on whether the compressor is operating or
paused. Do not worry, the refrigerator is functioning normally.
If the REFRIGERATOR OPERATION knob has been set on high
values with large quantities of food and with a high ambient
temperature, the appliance can operate continuously, resulting in
excessive frost formation and excessive energy consumption:
compensate for this by shifting the knob towards lower values

Avoiding mould and unpleasant odours
• The appliance is manufactured with hygienic materials which are
odour free. In order to maintain an odour free refrigerator and to
prevent the formation of stains, food must always be covered or
sealed properly.
• If you want to switch the appliance off for an extended period of
time, clean the inside and leave the doors open.
Defrosting the appliance
! Follow the instructions below.
Do not speed up the defrosting process by using any devices or
tools other than the scraper provided, you may damage the
refrigeration circuit.
The refrigerator has an automatic defrosting function: water is
ducted to the back of the appliance by a special discharge outlet
(see diagram) where the heat produced by the compressor causes
it to evaporate. It is necessary to clean the discharge hole regularly
so that the water can flow out easily.
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.
Replacing the light bulb
Using the refrigerator to its full potential
• Use the TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob to adjust the
temperature (see Description).
• Place only cold or lukewarm foods in the compartment, not 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
humidity in the refrigerator and cause condensation to form.
Maintenance and care
Switching the appliance off
During cleaning and maintenance it is necessary to disconnect the
appliance from the electricity supply.
It is not sufficient to set the temperature adjustment knobs on
(appliance off) to eliminate all electrical contact.
To replace the light bulb in the refrigerator compartment, pull out
the plug from the electrical socket. Follow the instructions below.
Access the light bulb by removing the cover as indicated in the
diagram. Replace it with a similar light bulb within the power range
indicated on the cover (10W or 15W).

sufficient to set the temperature adjustment knobs on
(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.
difficult and results in increased energy consumption.
• Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure they
are free of debris and to prevent cold air from escaping (see
Maintenance).
Troubleshooting
If the appliance does not work, before calling for Assistance (see
Assistance), check for a solution from the following list.
The internal light does not illuminate.
• The plug has not been inserted into the electrical socket, or not
far enough to make contact, or there is no power in the house.
• The TEMPERATURE CONTROL Knob is on setting.
The refrigerator do not cool well.
• The door do not close properly or the seals are damaged.
• The door are opened too frequently.
• The TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob is not in the correct
position
• The refrigerator have been over-filled.
The food inside the refrigerator is beginning to freeze.
• The TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob is not in the correct
position.
• The food is in contact with the back inside wall of the refrigerator.
The motor runs continuously.
• The door is not closed properly or is continuously opened.
• The outside ambient temperature is very high.
The appliance makes a lot of noise.
• The appliance has not been installed on a level surface (see
Installation).
• The appliance has been installed between cabinets that vibrate
and make noise.
• The internal refrigerant makes a slight noise even when the
compressor is off. This is not a defect, it is normal.
The back wall of the refrigerator unit is covered in frost or
droplets of water
• This shows the appliance is operating normally.
There is water at the bottom of the refrigerator.
• The water discharge hole is blocked (see Maintenance).
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
