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.
Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the refrigerator compartment
automatically adjusts itself according to the position of the
thermostat knob.
= warmest
= 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 REFRIGERATOR OPERATION 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
Fixed to the floor or wall at the rear of the fridge, the stability
bracket hooks onto the compressor mounting plate holding the
fridge secure.

air circulates in a natural way: the colder air tends to move
downwards as it is heavier. The food should be stored as
follows:
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.
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.
Replacing the light bulb
Using the refrigerator to its full potential
• Use the TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob to adjust the
temperature (see Description).
• 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.
To replace the light bulb in the refrigerator compartment, pull out
the plug from the electrical socket. Follow the instructions below.
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).

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.
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).
Troubleshooting
If the appliance does not work, before calling for Assistance
(see Assistance), check for a solution from the following list.
The internal light does not illuminate.
• The plug has not been inserted into the electrical socket, or
not far enough to make contact, or there is no power in the
house.
• The TEMPERATURE CONTROL Knob is on
setting.
The refrigerator do not cool well.
• The door do not close properly or the seals are damaged.
• The door are opened too frequently.
• The TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob is not in the correct
position
• The refrigerator have been over-filled.
The food inside the refrigerator is beginning to freeze.
• The TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob is not in the correct
position.
• The food is in contact with the back inside wall of the
refrigerator.
The motor runs continuously.
• The door is not closed properly or is continuously opened.
• The outside ambient temperature is very high.
The appliance makes a lot of noise.
• The appliance has not been installed on a level surface (see
Installation).
• The appliance has been installed between cabinets that
vibrate and make noise.
• The internal refrigerant makes a slight noise even when the
compressor is off. This is not a defect, it is normal.
The back wall of the refrigerator unit is covered in frost or
droplets of water
• This shows the appliance is operating normally.
There is water at the bottom of the refrigerator.
• The water discharge hole is blocked (see Maintenance).
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
