Important Safety Instruction
w WARNING
w CAUTION
• If the wall socket is loose, do not insert the power
plug.
It may cause electric shock or fire.
• Never unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip plug firmly and pull it
straight out from the outlet.
You may disconnect a wire and cause a short circuit.
• Do not use a wet or damp cloth when cleaning
the plug. Remove any foreign matter from the
power plug pins.
Otherwise, there is a risk of fire.
• After unplugging the appliance, wait for at least
five minutes before plugging it again to the wall
socket.
Abnormal operation of the freezer may cause material
damage.
• If the appliance is not to be used for a long time,
pull out the power plug.
Any deterioration in the insulation may cause fire.
• Do not let children touch or play with the control
panel on the front of the appliance.
• The refrigerant used in fridge/freezer and the
gases in the insulation material require special
disposal procedures. Ensure that none of the pipes
on the back of the appliances are damaged prior
to disposal.
w Keep ventilation openings, in the appliance
enclosure or in the built-in structure, clear of
obstruction.
w Do not use mechanical devices or other
means to accelerate the defrosting process,
other than those recommended by the
manufacturer.
w Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.
w Do not use electrical appliances inside the
food storage compartments of the appliance,
unless they are of the type recommended by
the manufacturer.
w The refrigerant and insulation blowing gas
used in the appliance require special disposal
procedures. When disposal, please consult
with service agent or a similarly qualified
person.
This appliance contains a small amount of
isobutane refrigerant (R600a), natural gas with
high environmental compatibility, but it is also
combustible. When transporting and installing
the appliance, care should be taken to ensure
that no parts of the refrigerating circuit are
damaged. Refrigerant squirting out of the pipes
could ignite or cause an eye injury. If a leak is
detected, avoid any naked flames or potential
sources of ignition and air the room in which the
appliance is standing for several minutes.
In order to avoid the creation of a flammable gas air
mixture if a leak in the refrigerating circuit occurs, the
size of the room in which the appliance may be sited
depends on the amount of refrigerant used. The
room must be 1 m2 in size for every 8 g of R600a
refrigerant inside the appliance. The amount of
refrigerant in your particular appliance is shown on
the identification plate inside the appliance.
Never start up an appliance showing any signs of
damage. If in doubt, consult your dealer.
w WARNING
Please do not use a dishwasher to clean the lower
drawers; the high temperature may cause damage
to the baskets which make them unusable.
