Conformity declaration
This appliance incorporates parts intended to come
into contact with foodstuffs in compliance with EEC directive 89/09/CEE.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket outlet, then it should
be cut off and disposed of in order to avoid a possible shock hazard should it be inserted into a 13A socket elsewhere. A suitable
altenative plug should then be fitted to the cable. The wires in this
mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code;
BROWN - “LIVE” (“L”)
1. The GREEN AND YELLOW wire must be connected to the
terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter “E” or by
the Earth symbol or coloured green or green and yellow.
2. The BLUE wire must be connected to the terminal which is
marked with the letter “N” or coloured black.
3. The BROWN wire must be connected to the terminal which is
marked with the letter “L” or coloured red.
The appliance must not be used in outside environments.
The appliance must not be positioned in a humid environment or
in areas where water jets may be used. In the ice bin of this appliance you will find the following accessories: instructions for use,
an envelope containing an ice pallet, a funnel with hose for periodical cleaning, 4 adjustable feet and washers.
− Fit the feet into the receptacles, proceeding as follows:
− Screw the 4 threaded supports on the bottom front and screw
the adjustable feet on the supports (Fig. ).
− Place the ice maker on a stable, level surface and adjust the
feet if necessary.
− Do not install the unit close to a heat source, in a niche, or leaning against a wall on one side; air must be free to circulate
through the ventilation grids (vicinity not less than 6 cm).
− In rooms with an ambient temperature lower than +10oC or
higher than +32oC, ice cubes production is not guaranteed. However, at ambient temperatures from +16oC to +32oC, ice cubes
production can be guaranteed if a tropicalized unit is installed.
Check that the voltage on the rating plate corresponds to the voltage in your home (Fig. 2).
Connect the appliance to the mains and ensure that it is working
correctly before storing food.
The earthing of this appliance is compulsory by law.
− The electrical and plumbing connection must be carried out by
a qualified technician, in compliance with local safety regulations.

objects arising from the non-observance of this requirement.
(For Great Britain only)
Fuse replacement.
If the mains lead of this appliance is fitted with a BS 1363A 13
amp fused plug, to change a fuse in this type of plug use an
A.S.T.A. approved fuse to BS 1362 type and proceed as follows:
BLUE (“N”)
Connection to a
typical 13 amp plug
For the Republic of Ireland only
The information given in respect of Great Britain will frequently
apply, but a third type of plug and socket is also used, the 2-pin,
side earth type. In this case, the wire which is coloured GREEN
AND YELLOW must be connected to the EARTH contact, and the
other two wires to the two pins, irrespective of colour. The supply
to the socket must be fitted with a 16 amp fuse.
− Connect the water and drain hoses through the rear wall of the
unit (Fig. 3).
− Connect the water inlet hose to a cold water tap, having a 3/4”
BSP thread. The outlet hose is to be placed into a drain, preferably
equipped with an S - trap to prevent any odour back-up. The drain
must be at a lower level than the outlet of the hose from the appliance.
− The outlet hose should be inclined at least 10 degrees so the
water can drain naturally.
− If the water is very hard (rich in calcium and magnesium salts),
insert a softener-filter on the inlet connection between the tap and
the hose. This filter brings the water hardness to a normal value.
− Regenerate or replace the water-softener filter (according to
the type) when the ice cubes are not completely transparent or
production time is increased. This appliance conforms to EEC directive No 82/499/EEC on radiointerference.
1. Remove the fuse cover (A) and fuse (B).
2. Fit replacement 13A fuse into fuse cover.
3. Refit both into plug.
IMPORTANT: The fuse cover must be refitted when changing a fuse and if the fuse cover is lost the plug must not be used
until a correct replacement is fitted.
Correct replacement are identified by the colour insert or the colour embossed in words on the base of the plug.
Replacement fuse covers are available from your local electrical

Ice maker operation is completely automatic. Ice is formed by
progressive refrigeration of a film of water which flows on a refrigerated inclined plate (Fig. 4). When the ice film attains the re-
quired thickness, a thermostat automatically releases the ice
sheet which slides on to a cross-hatched network of low voltage
wire (Fig. 5). This network melts the ice, cutting the sheet into cubes. This continues until the ice cubes bin is completely filled. A
thermostat then automatically stops the ice cubes production.
When the level of the ice cubes in the bin decreases, because of
melting or use, the thermostat will automatically re- start the appliance. The water formed by melting ice cubes accumulates in the
bottom of the bin and is discharged through a drain hole.
Before using your ice maker for the first time, clean it thoroughly.
Follow the instructions in the “Maintenance” section of this booklet.
− Plug the appliance into the wall socket.
− Turn on the water supply.
− Press the green switch.
Ice cube thickness is pre-set at the factory. The thickness can be
increased or decreased by turning the thermostat knob with a
screwdriver. Turning the knob clockwise increases the thickness,
turning it anti-clockwise decreases the thickness (Fig. 6). By
means of the thermostat knob it is possible to adjust the variations due to the ambient temperature, when it is higher than 32oC
and lower than 10oC.
− Never turn the thermostat knob outside the field indicated on
the dial.
− Adjust the ice thickness thermostat only after a few hours operation and only after the bin has half-filled with ice cubes.
− Non-observance of the thermostat setting rule could result in
damage to the ice maker, especially if the thermostat knob is left
on a low setting in high room temperature.
In this case the ice could become so thick that the ice will not be
cut. On the other hand, the ice thickness could be reduced to a
minimum or none at all.
The thermostat is pre-set at the factory.
However, if the ambient temperature is higher than +32oC it is necessary to adjust the thermostat knob to position , if the ambient temperature is lower than +16oC, it will be necessary to adjust the thermostat knob to position
(Fig. 7).
Water jets are not to be used for the cleaning of the appliance.
Always pull out the plug and turn off the water before doing any
work (cleaning or repair) on the unit. Periodically clean the appliance (every 6 months) and the water system, to keep the appliance operating at maximum efficiency and to ensure the best ice
cubes quality. When the ice cubes production time is increased,
and the cubes start to lose their transparency, it is time to clean
the water system. How often you clean this system depends on
the hardness of the water. During freezing, the calcium in the water is deposited on the refrigerated plate. These deposits act as
insulation, decreasing the efficiency of the appliance’s performance. To clean the water system, proceed as follows:
1) Turn off the water and switch off the appliance by pressing the
green switch.
2) Open the ice bin and remove all the cubes.
3) Remove the plug or the drain hose (if provided) inside the bin
(Fig. 8) to drain the water from the bin.
4) Pour 1.5 l of water mixed with 1⁄10 litre of vinegar or 4 tablespoonfuls of lemon juice or citric acid into the bin using the funnel
provided (Fig. 9).
5) Press the two switches (green and blue) and operate the appliance for 40 minutes approx.
6) Release the two switches (green and blue) and drain this water mixture into the liner by inverting the position of the funnel.
7) Pour 1.5 l water and 2 tablespoonful of baking soda into the
bin, press the two switches (green and blue) and operate the appliance for 5 minutes approx.
8) Drain the water and repeat the operation, by rinsing with 1.5 l
of water and leaving the appliance operating for 5 minutes.
9) Remove the funnel with the hose after the water drain and replace the plug or the drain hose.
10) Clean the inside of the bin reservoir and the door gasket with
a soft cloth dampened in a solution of warm water and baking
11) Press the green switch and turn the water on: the ice maker
will begin to work again.
− We recommend you ask the intervention of a qualified technicien to clean periodically (once a year) the condenser and the
motor compartment.
Important: To prevent odour contamination of the ice cubes,
do not put foods or beverages into the ice cube bin. When
not in use for long periods of time (holidays, etc.) turn off the
water, pull out the plug, remove all ice cubes, drain the water
tank by removing the plug or the drain hose (Fig. 8), and
leave the door open to prevent the formation of odours.
If the ice maker does not work properly or does not work at all, before calling for service, carry out the following checks (which are
also listed on the sticker at the back of the appliance Fig. 2). This
is very important as travel expenses and labour costs will be
charged to you if your call turns out to be unjustified. If the
compressor does not work and the ice bin is empty,
check that:
− There is power at the outlet.
− the plug is connected correctly to the socket
− one of the power cord wires is not disconnected.
The wash switch is pressed.
If the compressor works and the ice bin is empty, check that:
− the water is turned on.
− the thermostat is set according to the instructions given.
If the ice cubes are too thick or too thin, check that:
− the thermostat knobs are positioned according to instructions.
If ice cubes formation takes too long.
− It is possible that a calcium deposit has formed on the refrigerated plate. To remove this deposit, clean the water system (as
described in the “Maintenance” section of this booklet). If the calcium builds up too rapidly, install a water softener filter: if the water
softener filter is already installed, it is necessary to replace or to regenerate it.
If there is no water in the ice bin, check that:
− the drain hose is well connected
− the drain hose is not clogged or kinked.
If the ice cubes are not transparent, check that:
− the water is not too hard. If it is, install the water softener filter. If
already installed, regenerate or replace it.
If after the above checks, the unit is still not working properly, contact your dealer or Service. Describe the nature of the fault and
give the model of the unit. The model number is printed on the
rating plate at the back of the appliance (Fig. 2).
If the replacement of the supply cord is required, please buy a similar supply cord by one of our service centres. How to operate:
1) Disconnect the supply cord from the mains supply.
2) Remove the top. Unscrew the two rear screws and slide the
top frontwards to disengage it from the front seats.
3) Release the supply cord from the clamp
(Fig. 2).
4) Disconnect the electrical connections from the front control
panel and remove the supply cord.
5) Mount the new supply cord and connect it electrically (Note:
yellow-green opposite symbol ). Position it between the water
pump and the exterior wall, and fix it by means of clamp (Fig.
2). Please make sure that the length of the supply cord inside the
appliance is sufficient.
6) Remount the top and fix it to the rear wall.
