standard safety regulations.
First use
When the appliance is connected to the power supply, the display will show the factory preset
temperatures (-18°C and +5°C).
If the acoustic signal sounds and the temperature indicator blinks, press and hold the alarm mute button.
Note: After being switched on, the appliance needs approximately 2/3 hours to reach the correct
temperature to store a typical volume of food.
As applicable, insert the anti-bacterial and anti-odour filter as indicated on the filter package.
When the appliance is not used
Disconnect the appliance from the power supply. Empty the appliance and leave the doors open just
enough to allow air to circulate inside the compartments. This will prevent the formation of mould and
bad odours. If your appliance has an automatic ice maker:
1. Shut off the water supply to the product.
2. Empty the ice bucket.
For power failures lasting up to 12 hours, keep the doors of the appliance closed. In this way the stored
food will stay cold as long as possible.
Should the power failure last more than 12 hours, remove all food from the product and store it in a
suitable appliance.
Appliance maintenance and cleaning
Periodically clean the appliance with a new cloth and a solution of lukewarm water and neutral detergent
specific for cleaning the inside of the refrigerator. Never use abrasive detergents.
Do not use steam cleaners. Clean the condenser using a vacuum cleaner, after removing the front plinth
(see Installation manual).
The buttons and control panel display (in some models, located on the freezer door) must not be cleaned
with alcohol or alcohol-derived substances, but with a dry cloth.
Replacing the bulbs
• Always disconnect the refrigerator from the power
supply before replacing any light bulbs.
• Before replacing the bulb, remove the lamp cover (if
present). After the bulb has been replaced, refit the
lamp cover.
• Internal lights are bayonet bulbs.
• The ice and water dispenser light, if present, is a normal
screw bulb.
Only use bulbs of the same type which can be requested from the After-sales Service and authorized
Cleaning, sanitization and maintenance of the ice and/or
water dispenser (if present)
Failure to follow the instructions regarding sanitizing can compromise the hygienic safety of the
water dispensed.
• When using the appliance for the first time, discard the first 9-14 litres of water, equivalent to 6-7
minutes of dispensing (not necessarily consecutive, but before initial consumption) and discard the ice
produced in the first 24 hours.
• Reposition the removable water dispenser (if present), ensuring your hands are hygienically clean.
• Periodically clean the ice bucket or drawer under running water only.
• Every six months, sanitise the water and ice dispensing system with disinfectant solutions (sodium
hypochlorite based) suitable for materials in contact with food and which do not alter the
characteristics of the materials. Rinse under running water before use.
• Replacement of any parts of the ice and water dispenser must be carried out using original spare parts
provided by the Manufacturer.
• Any work on the appliance must be carried out by a qualified technician or the After-sales Service.
Using the ice and water dispenser (where provided)
For connection to the mains water supply see the
Installation manual.
The anti-condensation devices can be disabled by
pressing the switch shown in the figure on the right
(switch in position OFF). This allows you to
optimise energy consumption.
To dispense water:
Water delivery is always available. Press a glass
against the water dispenser lever. Water delivery
stops when the lever is released.
If there is condensation in the ice/water dispenser
area or on the door, reactivate the anticondensation devices (switch in position ON).
To dispense ice:
To obtain ice press against the ice dispenser lever.
Useful tips:
1. Keep the glass near the water/ice dispenser
2. Press lightly on the lever to activate the ice
dispenser. Pressing hard will not result in faster
dispensing or greater quantities.
3. To stop dispensing, remove the glass slowly so
that ice does not fall outside the glass.
4. Do not use fragile glasses.
5. It is recommended to consume dispensed water
within 6 hours.
6. If the water/ice dispenser has been used only
occasionally or has not been used for some
time, but the appliance has been left on, it is
advisable to clean the circuit, eliminating the
first 2 litres of water and the first ice produced.
This operation should also be performed when
the product is reconnected to the power supply
after prolonged disuse.
Using the automatic ice maker (where provided)
After switching on the refrigerator, it usually takes overnight for the first ice cubes to form.
When selecting crushed ice (on some models only - see the Quick Start Guide), the cubes are crushed just
before being dispensed, therefore the crushed ice may come out with a slight delay. Noise from the ice
crusher is normal, and pieces of ice may vary in size. When changing from crushed ice to ice cubes, a small
amount of crushed ice may come out together with the first cubes.
The quantity and size of the ice cubes depend on the mains water pressure. Ice cubes production can be
increased by decreasing the freezer compartment temperature setting.
Normal ice production is 7 to 8 batches of ice cubes over a 24 hour
period. Large amounts of ice cubes should be taken directly from the
bucket, and not from the dispenser. It is recommended that the drawer is
closed after completing the operation.
Normal ice production is 12 to 14 batches of ice cubes over a 24 hour
To remove and refit the ice bucket
Insert your fingers in the opening at the bottom of
the container, pull the lever and lift and extract the
container (see figure 1). For some models, to
remove the container, insert your fingers in the
opening at the bottom of the container and place
your thumb on the release button (see figure 2);
holding the base of the bucket with both hands,
press the release button and lift the bucket up and
figure 1
To replace the ice container in its place, place it on
its support attached to the inner door and lower
in position.
figure 2
Note: Large amounts of ice cubes should be taken directly from the bucket, and not from the dispenser.
Storing, freezing and thawing food
It is important to wrap food so that no water, moisture, or vapour may penetrate; this avoids the transfer
of odours and flavours throughout the refrigerator and allows better storage of frozen food.
NOTE: Never place warm food in the freezer. Cooling hot foods before freezing saves energy and
prolongs the life of the appliance.
“MULTIFLOW” air system (where provided)
"MULTIFLOW" is a ventilated airflow system thanks to which the internal temperature is to all intents and
purposes uniform. Food can be arranged on any shelf paying attention not to obstruct the air vents, so that
air can circulate.
Guide to internal components
The Fresh Control compartment is a container with a tilting movement that facilitates the introduction and
removal of food.
Opening, removal and replacing of the Fresh Control
Open the Fresh Control compartment by pressing one of the two
buttons at the top (1), while at the same time pulling the
compartment as far as it will go. To close, follow the inverse
procedure. To remove the Fresh Control compartment, follow the
instructions above and then lightly rotate and remove the
compartment from its seat (2). To replace the compartment, insert
the external lateral guides of the container (3a) in their seats near
the retaining pins (3b).
N.B. Do not store any food in metal or sharp packaging inside the
Fresh Control compartment as this could damage the surface.
Removing the crisper or meat drawer:
1. slide the drawer out as far as it goes;
2. with one hand underneath the drawer, lift and pull it out;
3. the drawer will come out of its runners and can be pulled out
4. to remove it completely, the drawer must be tilted: front end up,
back end down.
Meat / crisper drawer temperature control (where provided)
• The cold air is conveyed inside the meat drawer through an
opening between the refrigerator compartment and the freezer
compartment. In this way the temperature inside the meat
drawer is kept lower than the rest of the refrigerator. The air
flow can be adjusted by means of the special slider.
• If you wish to store vegetables in the meat drawer, shift the
control all the way to the left, to the fruit/vegetables setting. This
avoids possible damage due to the vegetables freezing.
Crisper drawer moisture control (where provided)
• The moisture level inside the crisper drawer can be controlled by
moving the slider in the desired position.
• By moving the slider all the way to the right, moisture will be
eliminated from the compartment for better preservation of fruit
and vegetables with peel.
• By moving the slider to the far left, moisture is maintained inside
the compartment for better preservation of leafy vegetables.
Loading procedure
Maximum storage capacity can be obtained by removing the two
bottom drawers/baskets from the freezer compartment and placing
the rack supplied as shown in the figure on the right. Make sure that
the air vents are not obstructed by the food
(this applies to units with capacity lower than 715 litres).
Changing a water filter cartridge (where provided)
1. Locate the water filter cartridge cap below the freezer compartment door. Rotate the cap
counterclockwise to a vertical position and remove the filter from the base grille.
2. Pull the cap and filter cartridge out through the base grille.
3. Remove the cartridge cap by sliding it off the end of the old cartridge. DO NOT DISCARD THE CAP.
4. Slide the cartridge cap onto the new cartridge.
5. With the cartridge cap in the vertical position, insert the new filter cartridge into the base grille until it
6. Rotate the cartridge cap clockwise to a horizontal position. RUN WATER THROUGH THE DISPENSER
UNTIL THE WATER RUNS CLEAR (about 9-14 litres or 6-7 minutes). This will clean the system and
clear air from the lines.
Note: As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out of the dispenser.
