Installation
Start-up and use
! 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.
Starting 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.
! 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).
1. Insert the plug into the socket and make sure that the green
POWER indicator light illuminates (the TEMPERATURE
ADJUSTMENT knob must be in the position).
2. Turn the TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob to an average
value and press the SUPER FREEZE button (rapid freezing):
the SUPER FREEZE indicator light will illuminate. It will switch
off once the freezer has reached its optimal temperature. At this
point food may be placed inside the appliance.
Using the freezer to its full potential
• Use the TEMPERATURE CONTROL knob to adjust the
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.

ECOis the optimal temperature for energy saving levels.
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
illuminates), insert the food
(corresponding indicator light
and close the door. The function is disabled automatically after
24 hours or when optimal temperatures have been reached
(indicator light goes out);
! 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.
! In order to obtain a greater amount of space in the freezer
compartment, you may remove the bins (except the lowest bin
and the special COOL CARE ZONE bin, which has an
adjustabletemperature) and place the food directly onto the
racks/glass shelves supplied [where present].

Ice3 ice tray
The fact that they are situated on the top part of the freezer
drawers ensures greater cleanliness: the ice no longer comes into
contact with the food placed inside the freezer compartment;
furthermore, the dripping of the water during filling is avoided (a lid
to cover up the hole after filling with water is also provided).
1. Pull out the tray by pushing it up. 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.

Maintenance and care
Switching the appliance off
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.
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.

Disposal
• 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).
The buzzer sounds at regular intervals.
• The appliance door has been left open for longer than 2 minutes.
The buzzer will stop sounding when you shut the door.
