! 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 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
inside the freezer (e.g. 150 W).
• The voltage is in the range of values indicated on the
data plate located inside the freezer (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.
2
Connection of the water supply
To carry this out, use the kit provided which contains all
the necessary elements for connection to the water supply.
To improve the performance of the Aqua Care, we
recommend that you fit a tap with a filter on the pipe for
the connection to the water system: in this way it will be
possible to manually interrupt the water supply during long
periods in which Aqua Care is not used.
! The water pressure inside the water system must be
between 0.8 bar and 8 bar.
! The appliance must only be connected to a water supply
suitable for drinking.
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 rewireable 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.
Reversible door
WARNING:
To avoid a shock hazard do not insert the discarded
plug into a socket anywhere else.

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 red
ALARM and green POWER indicator lights illuminate
(the TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob must not be
on ).
2. Press the SUPER FREEZE button (rapid freezing): the
SUPER FREEZE indicator light will illuminate.
3. When the indicator light switches off, press the SUPER
FREEZE button. The freezer is now ready to be used.
Using the freezer to its full potential
• Use the TEMPERATURE CONTROL knob to adjust the
temperature.
1 = warmest
MAX = coldest
We recommend, however, a medium position.
• 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. Fresh
food must be stored in the top FREEZER and STORAGE
compartment.
• Do not place glass bottles which contain liquids, and
which are corked or hermetically sealed in the freezer
because they could break.
• The maximum quantity of food that may be frozen daily is
indicated on the plate containing the technical properties
located within the freezer (for example: Kg/24h: 4).
• To freeze (if the freezer is already operating):
- for small quantities which are less than those indicated
on the data plate, press the rapid freezing SUPER
FREEZE button (the corresponding yellow indicator light
illuminates), place the food inside and close the door.
After 24 hours press the SUPER FREEZE button.
- for large quantities which are greater than the
maximum load indicated on the data plate, hold down
the rapid freezing SUPER FREEZE button. After 24 hours
place the food inside thr freezer and close the door. After
another 24 hours press the SUPER FREEZE button.
• Placing large amounts of fresh food in the freezer may
temporarily increase the temperature inside the
appliance (this is indicated when the red ALARM light
illuminates). This situation, as it is only temporary, does
not adversely affect the storage conditions of food that
is already frozen.
• In order to obtain a greater amount of space in the
freezer compartment, you may remove the bins and
place the food directly onto the evaporator plates.
If the top drawer is not
used DO NOT store
food beyond the line
embossed in the interior
of the freezer cabinet
wall. This indicates the
Load limit
load limit. Food beyond
indicator
this line will limit the air
circulation and affect
the performance of the
freezer.
! 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.
! Warning Indicator Light. When this red warning light
comes on for a prolonged period of time, it means that
the freezer is not functioning properly and the temperature
is rising too much. (Call your Service Centre)
This warning light might come on for a brief period when:
a) the door is left open for an extended period of time
(when the freezer is being loaded or unloaded).
b) the SUPER FREEZE button has been pressed.
In these two cases, the fact that the warning light comes
on does not indicate that the freezer is malfunctioning or
there is a defect.

Maintenance and care
GB
Switching the appliance off
Defrosting the appliance
During cleaning and maintenance it is necessary to
disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply:
! Follow the instructions below.
Do not use objects with sharp or pointed edges to defrost
the appliance as these may damage the refrigeration
circuit beyond repair.
1. set the TEMPERATURE CONTROL Knob on
;
2. pull the plug out of the socket.
Cleaning the appliance
• The external and internal parts, as well as the rubber
seals may be cleaned using a sponge that has been
soaked in lukewarm water and bicarbonate of soda or
neutral soap. Do not use solvents, abrasive products,
bleach or ammonia.
• The removable accessories may be soaked in warm
water and soap or dishwashing liquid. Rinse and dry
them carefully.
• The back of the appliance may collect dust which can
be removed by delicately using the hose of a vacuum
cleaner set on medium power. The appliance must be
switched off and the plug must be pulled out before
cleaning the appliance.
Avoiding mould and unpleasant odours
• The appliance is manufactured with hygienic materials
which are odour free. In order to maintain an odour free
refrigerator and to prevent the formation of stains, food
must always be covered or sealed properly.
• If you want to switch the appliance off for an extended
period of time, clean the inside and leave the doors
open.
If the frost layer is greater than 5 mm, it is necessary to
defrost manually:
1. The day before defrosting, press the SUPER FREEZE
button (the yellow SUPER FREEZE indicator light
illuminates) to further cool the food.
2. After 24 hours, turn the TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT
knob to , which will switch the refrigerator off.
3. Wrap frozen foods in newspaper and place them in
another freezer or in a cool place.
4. Leave the door open until the frost has melted
completely. This can be made easier by placing
containers with lukewarm water in the freezer
compartment..
5. Certain appliances are
fitted with the DRAIN
SYSTEM to lead the water
outside. Let the water flow
into a container (see
diagram).
6. Clean and dry the freezer compartment carefully before
switching the appliance on again.
7. Wait for approximately 2 hours, i.e. until the ideal
storage conditions have been restored, before placing
food in the freezer compartment.

Precautions and tips
! The appliance was designed and manufactured in
compliance with international safety standards. The
following warnings are provided for safety reasons and
must be read carefully.
This appliance complies with the following
Community Directives:
- 73/23/EEC of 19/02/73 (Low Voltage) and
subsequent amendments;
-89/336/EEC of 03.05.89 (Electromagnetic
Compatibility) and subsequent amendments;
- 2002/96/CE..
General safety
• The appliance was designed for domestic use inside the
home and is not intended for commercial or industrial use.
• The appliance must be used to store and freeze food
products by adults only and according to the instructions
in this manual.
• The appliance must not be installed outdoors, even in
covered areas. It is extremely dangerous to leave the
appliance exposed to rain and storms.
• Do not touch the appliance with bare feet or with wet or
moist hands and feet.
• WARNING: do not damage the refrigerant circuit.
• Do not touch the internal cooling elements: this could
cause skin abrasions or frost/freezer burns.
• When unplugging the appliance always pull the plug from
the mains socket, do not pull on the cable.
• Before cleaning and maintenance, always switch off the
appliance and disconnect it from the electrical supply. It is
not sufficient to set the temperature adjustment knobs on
(appliance off) to eliminate all electrical contact.
• In the case of a malfunction, under no circumstances
should you attempt to repair the appliance yourself.
Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause
injury or further malfunctioning of the appliance.
• Do not use any sharp or pointed utensils or electrical
equipment - other than the type recommended by the
manufacturer - inside the frozen food storage
compartments.
Disposal
GB
• Observe local environmental standards when disposing
packaging material for recycling purposes.
• The European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical
and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), requires that old
household electrical appliances must not be disposed of
in the normal unsorted municipal waste stream. Old
appliances must be collected separately in order to
optimise the recovery and recycling of the materials they
contain and reduce the impact on human health and the
environment. The crossed out “wheeled bin” symbol on
the product reminds you of your obligation, that when
you dispose of the appliance it must be separately
collected.
Consumers should contact their local authority or retailer
for information concerning the correct disposal of their
old appliance.
Respecting and conserving the environment
• Install the appliance in a fresh and well-ventilated room.
Ensure that it is protected from direct sunlight and do
not place it near heat sources.
• Try to avoid keeping the door open for long periods or
opening the door too frequently in order to conserve
energy.
• Do not fill the appliance with too much food: cold air
must circulate freely for food to be preserved properly. If
circulation is impeded, the compressor will work
continuously.
• Do not place hot food directly into the refrigerator. The
internal temperature will increase and force the
compressor to work harder and will consume more
energy.
• Defrost the appliance if ice forms (see Maintenance). A
thick layer of ice makes cold transference to food
products more difficult and results in increased energy
consumption.
• Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure
they are free of debris and to prevent cold air from
escaping (see Maintenance).
• Do not put ice cubes taken directly from the freezer into
your mouth.
• Do not allow children to tamper with the controls or play
with the appliance. Under no circumstance should they be
allowed to sit on the bins or to hang from the door.
• Keep packaging material out of the reach of children! It can
become a choking or suffocation hazard.
