Installation
! 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. Leave a space of at least 10 cm between the top part of the
appliance and any furniture above it, and at least 5 cm between
the sides and any furniture/side walls.
4. Ensure the appliance is away from any sources of heat (direct
sunlight, electric stove, etc.).
5. In order to maintain the correct distance between the appliance
and the wall behind it, fit the spacers supplied in the installation
kit, following the instructions provided.
Levelling
1. Install the appliance on a level and rigid floor.
2. If the floor is not perfectly horizontal, adjust the refrigerator by
tightening or loosening the front feet.
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.
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.
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 re-wireable 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.
WARNING:
To avoid a shock hazard do not insert the discarded plug
into a socket anywhere else.
Fitting a new plug
IMPORTANT:
WIRES IN THE MAINS LEAD ARE COLOURED IN ACCORDANCE
WITH THE FOLLOWING CODE...
Green and Yellow - Earth
Blue- Neutral
Brown- Live
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.

Start-up and use
Using the refrigerator to its full potential
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.
! 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).
• 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.
1. Insert the plug into the socket and ensure that the internal light
illuminates ( the FREEZER OPERATION knob must not be on
the position ) .
2.Turn the FREEZER OPERATION knob and REFRIGERATOR
OPERATION 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.
min = warmest
max = coldest
We recommend, however, a medium position.
Chiller system
No Frost
*
*
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.
FRESH BOX*
This is the new box to keep meat, fish and cheese fresh. When
positioned in the “lower” part of the fridge compartment, it is ideal
for meat and fish; when moved to the “top” part of the fridge, it
is perfect for cheese. It can be taken out of the fridge when it is
not needed.
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.

Maintenance and care
Switching the appliance off
During cleaning and maintenance it is necessary to disconnect the
appliance from the electricity supply:
1. set the FREEZER OPERATION knob on
2. pull the plug out of the socket
MAX
1. Pull out the tray by pushing it up. Check that the tray is ompletely
empty and fill it with water through the opening provided.
2. Take care not to exceed the level indicated (MAX WATER LEVEL).
Excess water prevents the ice cubes from dispensing (if this
happens, wait for the ice to melt and empty the tray).
3. Turn the tray 90°: due to the connected compartments each mould
fills with water (see diagram).
4. Close the opening with the lid provided and put the tray back,
placing the top part in the corresponding housing and allowing it
to drop in again.
5. When the ice has formed (minimum time approximately 8 hours)
knock the tray against a hard surface and wet the outside so that
the ice cubes come loose and take them out through the opening.

The fact that they are situated on the top part of the freezer drawers
ensures greater cleanliness: the ice no longer comes into contact
with the food placed inside the freezer compartment; furthermore,
the dripping of the water during filling is avoided (a lid to cover up the
hole after filling with water is also provided).
MAX
! 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.
! To avoid blocking the air circulation inside the freezer, it is advisable
not to obstruct the ventilation holes with food or containers.
!To maximise space inside the freezer, all drawers [with the exception
of the bottom drawer] can be removed from their positions and the food
placed directly on the racks/glass shelves supplied [where present].
WATER LEVEL
• 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 defrosted.
