refrigerator. It can be removed
for use and it may be shifted
sideways to optimise space
(see diagram).
1. Check that the tray is completely empty and fill it with
water through the opening provided.
2. Take care not to exceed the level indicated (MAX
WATER LEVEL). Excess water prevents the ice cubes
from dispensing (if this happens, wait for the ice to
melt and empty the tray).
3. Turn the tray 90°: due to the connected
compartments each mould fills with water (see
diagram).
4. Close the opening with the lid provided and put the
tray back, placing the top part in the corresponding
housing and allowing it to drop in again.
5. When the ice has formed (minimum time approximately
8 hours) knock the tray against a hard surface and wet
the outside so that the ice cubes come loose and take
them out through the opening.

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.
! The appliance comes with a motor protection control
system which makes the compressor start
approximately 8 minutes after being switched on. The
compressor also starts each time the power supply is
cut off whether voluntarily or involuntarily (blackout).
Once you have plugged the appliance into the mains
socket, make sure the display is on (the FREEZER
COMPARTMENT knob must not be on Off).
Freezer compartment
When you turn the appliance on (by turning the
FREEZER and APPLIANCE ON/OFF Knob to the
required freezer compartment operating temperature),
we recommend you enable the SUPER FREEZE
function to speed up the cooling process inside the
compartment; when the latter has reached the optimal
temperature, the function will be disabled and you may
place the frozen foods inside the freezer.
Refrigerator compartment
When you turn the refrigerator compartment on (by
turning REFRIGERATOR OPERATION Knob to the
required refrigerator compartment operating
temperature), we recommend you enable the SUPER
COOL function to speed up the cooling process inside
the compartment: after a few hours, you may place
food inside the refrigerator.
“Dynamic Bio Conservation” System.
It is recognizable due to the presence of the mechanism
on the top part of the refrigerator compartment (see
diagram).
B
A
The “Dynamic Bio Conservation” System 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.
Using the display
Setting the temperature
If the compartment concerned is switched off, the word
OFF will appear on the relative indication space on the
display (REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT setting and
FREEZER COMPARTMENT setting). If the compartment is
switched on, then the temperatures set at that time will
appear. To change them, turn the relative knob directly
(REFRIGERATOR OPERATION Knob and FREEZER
OPERATION and APPLIANCE ON/OFF Knob).
The refrigerator compartment can be set to between
+2°C and +8°C, while the freezer compartment can be
set to a temperature of between -18°C and -26°C. The
temperature in both cases can be increased or
decreased by 1°C at a time.
When the HOLIDAY function is enabled, temperature
regulations cannot be made, but the appliance
automatically sets itself to the best setting for the
situation: +12°C for the refrigerator compartment (if
enabled) and -18°C for the freezer compartment.

! The SUPER COOL function is linked to the refrigerator
compartment and when the latter is switched off, no action
whatsoever will be possible on the former, other functions
foresee an operation that can create conflicts (for
example, when the HOLIDAY and SUPER FREEZE
functions are enabled simultaneously), in this case a preset priority is taken into consideration in order to help you
operate the appliance.
! The SUPER FREEZE function features a double mode
of operation (see paragraph on operating the freezer
compartment).
Enabling/disabling the DEMO mode:
To run a demonstration of the display operation while
keeping the appliance turned off, just enable the DEMO
mode.
Enabling:
- set the FREEZER OPERATION and APPLIANCE ON/
OFF Knob to 0ff;
- keep the two buttons “Select” and “Mode” pressed for
approximately 5 seconds, until you hear the buzzer and
the two words “OFF” and “OFF” flash on the display;
these words will flash for the entire duration the DEMO
mode is enabled.
Disabling:
- set the FREEZER OPERATION and APPLIANCE ON/
OFF Knob to 0ff;
- keep the two buttons “Select” and “Mode” pressed for
approximately 5 seconds, until you hear the buzzer and
the two words “OFF” and “OFF” on the display stop
flashing.
Holiday function
To minimise energy usage when on holiday, it is not
necessary to switch the appliance off. The appliance
has a function which allows it to maintain the
temperature of the refrigerator compartment at
approximately 15°C (which can also be used to
conserve make-up and beauty products). The freezer
temperature must be set to the minimum value in order
to preserve the food.
Using the refrigerator to its full potential
• Use the REFRIGERATOR OPERATION knob to adjust
the temperature (see Description).
• Activate the SUPER COOL function to lower the
temperature quickly. For example, when you place a
large number of new food items inside a fridge, the
internal temperature will rise slightly. The function
8
quickly cools the groceries by temporarily reducing the
temperature until it reaches the ideal level.
• Place only cold or lukewarm foods in the compartment,
not hot foods (see Precautions and tips).
• 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.
Food hygiene
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.
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.
5. Remove all food past its expiry date from the
refrigerator.
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.
Using the freezer to its full potential
• Use the FREEZER OPERATION and APPLIANCE ON/
OFF 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).
• 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 where the temperature drops
below -18°C and guarantees rapid freezing.
• 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 on the bottom left side of the
refrigerator compartment (for example: Kg/24h: 4).
GB
• To freeze (if the freezer is already operating):
- For small quantities, less than the maximum capacity
indicated on the data plate (situated on the lower left,
next to the salad crisper), enable the SUPER FREEZE
function on the display in the "24 hour" mode and insert
the food to be frozen. To enable the function, press the
MODE button as many times as necessary for the
SUPER FREEZE symbol to start flashing and then press
the SELECT button to enable the SUPER FREEZE
function. After 24 hours, or once the optimal
temperatures have been reached, the rapid freezing
function is automatically disabled.
- For large quantities of food to be frozen (up until the
maximum load indicated on the data plate situated on
the lower left, next to the salad crisper), enable the
SUPER FREEZE function on the display in the "48
hours" mode: To enable the function, press the MODE
button as many times as necessary for the SUPER
FREEZE symbol to start flashing and then press the
SELECT button for more than three seconds to ensure
the function is enabled (symbol SUPER FREEZE
function starts to flash slowly). After 24 hours, the
function symbol will stop flashing and go back to being
permanently lit; you can now insert the food to be
frozen. After another 24 hours, the function will be
disabled automatically.
• In order to create extra room inside the freezer
compartment, the drawers may be removed and the
food arranged in the resulting space.
! 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.

Maintenance and care
GB
Switching the appliance off
Defrosting the freezer compartment
During cleaning and maintenance it is necessary to
disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply:
1. set the FREEZER OPERATION and APPLIANCE ON/
OFF Knob on Off
2. pull the plug out of the socket
! If this procedure is not followed, the alarm may sound. This
alarm does not indicate a malfunction. To restore normal
operation, it is sufficient to set the FREEZER OPERATION
and APPLIANCE ON/OFF knob on the desired value. To
disconnect the appliance, follow point 1 and 2.
Remove frost regularly using the special scraper
provided. If the frost layer is greater than 5 mm, it is
necessary to defrost manually:
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.
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.
Defrosting the appliance
! Follow the instructions below.
Do not speed up the defrosting process by using any
devices or tools other than the scraper provided, you
may damage the refrigeration circuit.
Defrosting the refrigerator compartment
The refrigerator has an automatic defrosting function:
water is ducted to the back of the appliance by a
special discharge outlet
(see diagram) where the
heat produced by the
compressor causes it to
evaporate. It is necessary
to clean the discharge
hole regularly so that the
water can flow out easily.

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.
• 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 FREEZER
OPERATION and APPLIANCE ON/OFF Knob on OFF
(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 devices or tools other than the special
scraper provided inside the compartments.
• Do not put ice cubes taken directly from the freezer
into your mouth.
• This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
lack of experience and knowledge unless they have
been given supervision or instruction concerning use
of the appliance by a person responsible for their
safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that
they do not play with the appliance.
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).
• Keep packaging material out of the reach of children! It
can become a choking or suffocation hazard.
