Before using the appliance please read the instructions
! Please keep these operating instructions for future
reference. Pass them on to possible new owners of the
Positioning and connection
1. Place the appliance in a well-ventilated humidity-free
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.
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 rear 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.
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
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
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.
To avoid a shock hazard do not insert the discarded
plug into a socket anywhere else.

The instructions contained in this manual are applicable to different model refrigerators. The diagrams may not
directly represent the appliance purchased. For more complex features, consult the following pages.
Removable lidded
shelf with EGG TRAY
Levelling FEET
• Varies by number and/or position.
* Available only on certain models.
BOTTLE shelf
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.
Play Zone*: Thanks to the new “Play Zone” bottle rack,
you can cool several bottles, cans and energy drinks
quickly to have them constantly at hand.
MULTI-USE* bin: to store food (such as cold meats)
for a long time and also prevent odours from lingering
in the refrigerator.
Refrigerator compartment
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 (colder) position and
wait approximately 10 hours until the temperature has
If the “Play Zone” is placed on the glass shelf, you can
store large and medium sized bottles on it simply by
laying the bottle on the flat rack. This is ideal for storing
wine bottles. When folded and secured in place on either
side of the shelf, the rack can be used to store cans (at
the top), energy drinks (in the centre) and other cans
and energy drinks can be rested horizontally on the
remaining part of the shelf. When placing cans (onto the
Play zone rack), make sure they do not touch the back
of the refrigerator interior.
The “Play Zone” can be used just like a normal shelf
(when placed flat) and moved up or down along the
fridge walls together with the rest of the shelf. It can be
washed easily, and is also dishwasher safe. The ideal
position for the Play zone rack is the central shelf.
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.
* Available only on certain models.
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.
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.
The Aircooler maintains a constant fridge temperature to
keep food fresher for longer and will quickly restore the
temperature to the correct level, even if the door is
opened frequently: the blown air (A) is cooled when it
comes into contact with the cold wall, whereas the hotter
air (B) is sucked up (see diagram).
The back wall may be covered in frost or droplets of
water, depending on whether the compressor is in
operation or whether it is paused.
Models without the Aircooler. have the cooling section in
the internal back wall of the compartments. The wall will
be covered in frost or water droplets depending on
whether the compressor is operating or paused: both
cases are normal. 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
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:
Fresh fish and meat
Fresh cheese
Chiller system
The appliance comes with one of the chiller systems
described below: take note of your system in order to
determine the most efficient food storage method.
It is recognizable due to the presence of the mechanism
on the top part of the refrigerator compartment (see

Using the refrigerator to its full potential
Using the freezer to its full potential
• Use the TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob to adjust
the temperature (see Description).
• Do not re-freeze food that is defrosting or that has
already been defrosted. These foods must be cooked
and eaten (within 24 hours).
• Place only cold or lukewarm foods in the
compartment, not hot foods (see Precautions and
• 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.
• Fresh food that needs to be frozen must not come into
contact with food that has already been defrosted.
Fresh food must be stored above the grill in the
freezer compartment and if possible be in direct
contact with the walls (side and rear), where the
temperature drops below -18°C and guarantees rapid
Food hygiene
• Do not place glass bottles which contain liquids, and
which are corked or hermetically sealed in the freezer
because they could break.
1. Once you have bought your food, remove all external
packaging made of paper/cardboard or other
wrappers, which could introduce bacteria or dirt
inside your refrigerator.
• 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)
2. Protect the food, (especially easily perishable items
and those that have a strong smell), in order to avoid
contact between them, thereby removing both the
possibility of germ/bacteria contamination as well as
the diffusion of strong odours inside the fridge.
3. Store all food in such a way as to ensure air can
circulate freely between different items.
4. Keep the inside of your fridge clean, taking care not
to use oxidiser or abrasive products.
! 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.
5. Remove all food past its expiry date from the
6. For the correct preservation of food, all easily
perishable items (soft cheeses, raw fish, meat, etc.)
should be stored in the coldest zone of the fridge
compartment, i.e. just above the salad crisper where
the temperature indicator is situated.

period of time, clean the inside and leave the doors
Defrosting the freezer compartment
Remove frost regularly using the special scraper
provided. 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
4. Clean and dry the freezer compartment carefully
before switching the appliance on again.
