Installation
! 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 front 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 on the bottom left side
of the fridge (e.g. 150 W).
• The voltage must be in the range between the values indicated on
the data plate located on the bottom left side (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.
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 re-wireable 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.
Fitting a new plug
IMPORTANT:
WIRES IN THE MAINS LEAD ARE COLOURED IN ACCORDANCE
WITH THE FOLLOWING CODE...
Green and Yellow - Earth

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).
Using the refrigerator to its full potential
• Place only cold or lukewarm foods in the compartment, never 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 the level
of humidity in the refrigerator and cause condensation to form.
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.
1. Insert the plug into the socket and ensure that the internal light
illuminates ( the FREEZER OPERATION knob must not be on the
position ) .
2. Turn the FREEZER OPERATION knob and REFRIGERATOR
OPERATION knob to an average value. After a few hours you will
be able to put food in the refrigerator.
Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the refrigerator compartment automatically
adjusts itself according to the position of the thermostat knob.
min = warmest
max = coldest
We recommend, however, a medium position.
TEMPERATURE Indicator light*: to identify the coldest area in the
refrigerator.
1. Check that OK appears clearly on the indicator light (see diagram).
2. If the word “OK” does not appear it means that the temperature is
too high: adjust the REFRIGERATOR OPERATION knob to a higher
position (colder) and wait approximately 10 hours until the
temperature has been stabilised.
3. Check the indicator light again: if necessary, readjust it following
the initial process. If large quantities of food have been added or if
the refrigerator door has been opened frequently, it is normal for
the indicator not to show OK. Wait at least 10 hours before adjusting
the REFRIGERATOR OPERATION knob to a higher setting.
Chiller system
No Frost
FRESH BOX*
This is the new box to keep meat, fish and cheese fresh. When
positioned in the “lower” part of the fridge compartment, it is ideal for
meat and fish; when moved to the “top” part of the fridge, it is perfect
for cheese. It can be taken out of the fridge when it is not needed.
Using the freezer to its full potential
The No Frost system circulates cold air continuously to collect humidity
and prevent ice and frost formation. The system maintains an optimal
humidity level in the compartment, preserving the original quality of
the food, preventing the food from sticking together and making
defrosting a thing of the past. Do not block the aeration cells by
placing food or containers in direct contact with the refrigerating back
panel. Close bottles and wrap food tightly.
* Varies by number and/or position, available only on certain models.
The temperature inside the freezer compartment automatically adjusts
itself according to the position of the thermostat knob.

switches the appliance off, including the refrigerator.
Maintenance and care
• 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.
• 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)
! 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.
! To avoid blocking the air circulation inside the freezer, it is advisable
not to obstruct the ventilation holes with food or containers.
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 ompletely
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.

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.
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.
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 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.
• 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.
• Keep packaging material out of the reach of children! It can become
a choking or suffocation hazard.
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
