Installation
GB
! Before placing your new appliance into operation
please read these operating instructions carefully. They
contain important information for safe use, for installation
and for care of the appliance.
! Please keep these operating instructions for future
reference. Pass them on to possible new owners of the
appliance.
Positioning and connection
Positioning
1. Place the appliance in a well-ventilated humidity-free
room.
2. Do not obstruct the rear fan grills. The compressor
and condenser give off heat and require good
ventilation to operate correctly and save energy.
3. Ensure the appliance is away from any sources of
heat (direct sunlight, electric stove, etc.).
Electrical connections
After the appliance has been transported, carefully
place it vertically and wait at least 3 hours before
connecting it to the electricity mains. Before inserting
the plug into the electrical socket ensure the following:
• The appliance is earthed and the plug is compliant
with the law.
• The socket can withstand the maximum power of the
appliance, which is indicated on the data plate located
on the bottom left side of the fridge (e.g. 150 W).
• The voltage must be in the range between the values
indicated on the data plate located on the bottom left
side (e.g. 220-240V).
• The socket is compatible with the plug of the appliance.
If the socket is incompatible with the plug, ask an
authorised technician to replace it (see Assistance).
Do not use extension cords or multiple sockets.
! Once the appliance has been installed, the power
supply cable and the electrical socket must be easily
accessible.
! The cable must not be bent or compressed.
! The cable must be checked regularly and replaced by
authorised technicians only (see Assistance).
! The manufacturer declines any liability should
these safety measures not be observed.

WARNING:
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
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.
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.
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.
Disposing of the plug
Cut off and dispose of the supplied plug if it does not fit
your socket. The cable should be cut as close as
possible to the moulded plug.
Remove the fuse.

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.
Using the refrigerator to its full potential
The temperature inside the refrigerator compartment
automatically adjusts itself according to the position of
the thermostat knob.
1 = warmest 5 = 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 TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT 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 (defrosting will
occur automatically).
In static appliances, the air circulates in a natural way:
the colder air tends to move downwards as it is heavier.
The food should be stored as follows:

Eggs
On the shelf provided
• 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.
SHELVES: with or without grill.
Due to the special guides the
shelves are removable and the
2
height is adjustable (see
diagram), allowing easy storage
of large containers and food.
Height can be adjusted without
complete removal of the shelf.
1
Using the freezer to its full potential
• Do not re-freeze food that is defrosting or that has
already been defrosted. These foods must be
cooked and eaten (within 24 hours).
• Fresh food that needs to be frozen must not come
into contact with food that has already been frosted.
• 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)
! 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.
! If the room temperature drops below 14°C for an
extended period of time, the ideal temperature will not
be reached in the freezer compartment and food
preservation will be reduced.

Maintenance and care
GB
Switching the appliance off
Defrosting the refrigerator compartment
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.
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.
Cleaning the appliance
• The external and internal parts, as well as the rubber
seals may be cleaned using a sponge that has been
soaked in lukewarm water and bicarbonate of soda or
neutral soap. Do not use solvents, abrasive products,
bleach or ammonia.
• The removable accessories may be soaked in warm
water and soap or dishwashing liquid. Rinse and dry
them carefully.
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 freezer compartment
If the frost layer is greater than 5 mm, it is necessary to
defrost manually:
1. Set the TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob to the
position .
2. Wrap frozen foods in newspaper and place them in
another freezer or in a cool place.
3. Leave the door open until the frost has melted
completely. This can be made easier by placing
containers with lukewarm water in the freezer
compartment.
4. Clean and dry the freezer compartment carefully
before switching the appliance on again.
5. Wait for approximately 2 hours, i.e. until the ideal
storage conditions have been restored, before placing
food in the freezer compartment.
Defrosting the appliance
! Follow the instructions below.
Do not use objects with sharp or pointed edges to
defrost the appliance as these may damage the
refrigeration circuit beyond repair.
Replacing the light bulb
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 (15W or 25W).

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 (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.
Disposal
GB
• 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.
• Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to
ensure they are free of debris and to prevent cold air
from escaping (see Maintenance).
• Keep packaging material out of the reach of children! It
can become a choking or suffocation hazard.
