Installation
GB
! 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.
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.
! Please keep these operating instructions for future
reference. Pass them on to possible new owners of the
appliance.
WARNING:
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
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. Ensure the appliance is away from any sources of heat
(direct sunlight, electric stove, etc.).
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.
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 right side of the horizontal surface in the top
compartment, under the thermostat (e.g. 150 W).
• The voltage is within the range of values indicated on
the data plate located on the right side of the horizontal
surface in the top compartment, under the thermostat
(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.

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.
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
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.
• 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.
1
Using the refrigerator to its full potential
2
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.
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 automatically).
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:
)RRG
Fresh fish and meat
Fresh cheese
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.

Maintenance and care
GB
Switching the appliance off
Replacing the light bulb
During cleaning and maintenance it is necessary to
disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply.
It is not sufficient to set the temperature adjustment
knobs on (appliance off) to eliminate all electrical
contact.
To replace the light bulb in the refrigerator
compartment, pull out the plug from the electrical
socket. Follow the instructions below.
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.
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.
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.
6
Access the light bulb by removing the cover as
indicated in the diagram.
Replace it with a similar light bulb within the power
range indicated on the cover (15W or 25W).
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.
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.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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 place hot food directly into the refrigerator.
The internal temperature will increase and force the
compressor to work harder and will consume more
energy.
• Do not use utensils other than the scraper provided,
or electrical equipment which is not of the type
specified by the manufacturer, inside the frozen food
storage compartments
• 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.
• 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.
