! 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.

Start-up and use
GB
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 “0”).
2.Turn the TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob to
the “Fast Freeze” position: the yellow FAST FREEZE
indicator light will illuminate.
3.When the red indicator light switches off, turn the
TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob to a medium
position. The freezer is now ready to be used.
Using the freezer to its full potential
• Use the TEMPERATURE CONTROL 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 within the freezer (for example: Kg/24h: 4).
Freezig
1. Turn the TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob to the
“Fast Freeze” position (the yellow FAST FREEZE
indicator light should be on).
2. Place the fresh food you wish to freeze inside the
upper FREEZER and STORAGE compartment, making
sure it is not in contact with food that has already been
frozen and, if possible, position it so that it is in direct
contact with the cooling shelves. Bear in mind that for
food to be frozen and stored in good condition, the
freezing process should take place quickly. For this
reason, we recommend that you turn the knob to the
“Fast Freeze” position 24 hours before placing fresh
food in the freezer. This action is necessary when
freezing large quantities of food (up to the maximum
amount indicated on the data plate).
3. 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.
4. After 24 hours, once the freezing process is complete,
return the TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob to its
normal operating position.
! remember to readjust the temperature in order to avoid
wasting energy.
! Do not open the door during freezing.
Storage
• Follow the instructions given on the packaging of
frozen food carefully and consume the products within
3 months of the date they were bought.
• When buying frozen food, ensure that it has been
stored at a suitable temperature and that the
packaging is intact. To maintain the quality of
frozen food, use suitable bags or containers when
transporting it and place it inside the freezer as soon
as possible.
• If the packaging shows signs of moisture or unusual
swelling, it is likely that the product has been stored
previously at an unsuitable temperature and that the
contents have suffered as a result.
• In order to obtain a larger amount of space in the
freezer, you can remove the central drawer, and place
the food directly onto the evaporator plate. Make sure
that, after having inserted the load, the door closes
correctly.
! 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 TEMPERATURE CONTROL knob is turned to the
“Fast Freeze” setting.
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.
