Important safety information
General safety precautions
Keep these instructions and they should remain at the
appliance when moving away or changing owner.
This appliance is designed for storing food, domestic
use and being used according to these instructions
only.
Specialised companies that are qualified to do so by
the manufacturer must carry out service and repairs
including repairing and changing the power cord.
Accessory parts supplied by them should be used only
for repairing. Otherwise the appliance can be damaged or can cause other damage or injury.
The appliance is out of circuit only in that case if the
plug is removed from the socket. Before cleaning and
maintenance always unplug it (do not get it by the
cable). If the socket is difficult to reach, switch off the
appliance by cutting off the current.
Power cord must not be lengthened.
Make sure that the power plug is not squashed or
damaged by the back of the fridge/freezer.
- A damaged power plug may overheat and cause a
fire.
Do not place heavy articles or the fridge/freezer
itself on the power cord.
- There is a risk of a short circuit and fire.
Do not remove the power cord by pulling on its lead,
particularly when the fridge/freezer is being pulled
out of its niche.
- Damage to the cord may cause a short-circuit, fire
and/or electric shock.
- If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced by
a certified service agent or qualified service personnel.
If the power plug socket is loose, do not insert the
power plug.
- There is a risk of electric shock or fire.
Without the lamp cover of interior lighting you must
not operate the appliance.
When cleaning, do not use sharp, pointed or hard
devices, as they can cause damage to the appliance.
Be careful not to allow liquids to the temperature
control and lighting box.
Do not put hot pot to the plastic parts.
Do not store flammable gas and liquid in the appliance, because they may explode.
Check and clean the outlet of melting water coming
during defrosting regularly - a label inside the appliance warns you for this. If it is clogged the melting
water gathered can cause earlier failure.
Precautions for child safety
Do not allow children to play with the packaging of the
appliance. Plastic foil can cause suffocation.
Adults must handle the appliance. Do not allow children to play with it or its controlling parts.
If you are discarding the appliance pull the plug out of
the socket, cut the connection cable (as close to the
appliance as you can) and remove the door to prevent
playing children to suffer electric shock or to close
themselves into it.
Safety precautions for installation
Put the appliance to the wall to avoid touching or catching warm parts (compressor, condenser) to
prevent possible burn.
When moving the appliance take care of the plug not
to be in the socket.
When placing the appliance take care not to stand it
on the power cord.
Adequate air circulation should be around the appliance, lacking this leads to overheating. To achieve sufficient ventilation follow the instructions relevant to
installation.
Safety precautions for isobutane
Warning
The refrigerant of the appliance is isobutane (R600a)
that is inflammable and explosive to a greater extent.
Keep ventilation openings, in the appliance enclosure
or in the built-in structure, clear of obstruction.
Do not use mechanical devices or other means to
accelerate the defrosting process, other than those recommended by the manufacturer.
Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.
Do not use electrical appliances inside the food storage
compartments of the appliance, unless they are of the
type recommended by the manufacturer.
For the safety of life and property keep the precautions of these user's instructions as the manufacturer is not responsible for damages caused by omission.

Handling the appliance
Putting it into use
Place the accessories into the refrigerator then plug to the
mains socket. To start cooling turn the control dial on the
right-hand side of the fresh food compartment from "0"
clockwise according to the figure. In "0" position the appliance is out of operation.
The next paragraph will give instructions for setting.
Storage time and temperature of foods
Controlling the temperature, setting
The thermostatic controller interrupts the operation of the
appliance automatically for more or less time depending on
the setting then restarts it assuring the required temperature.
Turning the control button towards the bigger numbers
cooling becomes more and more intensive.
Setting the knob of the thermostatic control to 3 the temperature starting automatically in the fresh food compartment is about +5°C or below. The 3 position generally meets
the requirements of everyday cooling.
The temperature coming about in the refrigerator is effected by not only the position of the thermostatic control but
the ambient temperature, frequency of door openings and
the quantity of food put into it newly, etc.
Hints for storage
When placing the different kinds of food take into consideration the sketch below in figure:
1.
Confectionery, ready-cooked foods, foods in
dishes, fresh meat, cold cuts, drinks
2.
Milk, dairy products, foods in dishes
3.
Fruits, vegetables, salads
4.
Cheese, butter
5.
Eggs
6.
Yoghurt, sour cream
7.
Small bottles, soft drinks
8.
Big bottles, drinks
The storage time can not be determined exactly in advance,
as it depends on the freshness and handling of the cooled
food. That is why the storage time made known is only
informative.
If you do not want to use up deep-frozen foods bought
immediately they can be stored for about 1 day (until dissolving) in this type of refrigerator. If the deep-frozen food
has already dissolved, refreezing is not recommended, it has
to be used up as soon as possible.
How to use the cooling compartment
Developing interior air circulation is necessary for
adequate cooling. For this reason you are asked not
to cover the whole surface of the wire shelves with paper,
trays, etc.
Do not put hot food into the refrigerator. Allow it
to reach room temperature naturally. In this way
unnecessary frost building up can be avoided.
Foods can take over odours from each other. So it
is essential to put foods in closed dishes or wrap
them in cellophane, aluminium foil, grease-proof paper
or cling film before placing them into the refrigerator.
This way foods will keep their moisture e.g. vegetables
will not dry out after some days.
Some useful information and advice
The variable shelves are worth paying attention to,
which increases the usefulness of the fresh food
compartment considerably. Rearranging the shelves is also
possible when the door is open at an angle of 90°.
The inside configuration of the door makes rearranging the
door shelves as required possible.
Hints and ideas
In this chapter practical hints and ideas are given about
how to use the appliance to reach maximum energy saving
and there is environmental information about the appliance as well.

GB
How to save energy
The colder the ambient temperature of the appliance is
the less energy it uses.
Avoid putting the appliance in a sunny place and near
anything that gives off heat.
Be sure that the condenser and the compressor are well
ventilated. Do not cover the sections where ventilation
is.
Wrap products in tightly closing dishes or cling film to
avoid building up unnecessary frost.
Do not leave the door open longer than necessary and
avoid unnecessary openings.
Put foods into the appliance only in a closed dish.
Put warm foods into the appliance only when they are
at room temperature.
Keep the condenser clean at the back of the appliance.
The appliance and environment
This appliance does not contain gasses which could damage
the ozone layer, in either its refrigerant circuit or insulation
materials. The appliance shall not be discarded together
with the urban refuse and rubbish. Avoid damaging the
cooling unit, especially at the rear near the heat exchanger. Information on your local disposal sites may be obtained
from your municipal authorities.
The materials used on this appliance marked with the sympol
are recyclable.
Maintenance
Defrosting
Bleeding part of the moisture of cooling chamber in form
of frost and ice goes with the operation of the refrigerator.
Thick frost and ice has an insulating effect, so it reduces
cooling efficiency as the temperature increases and it needs
more energy.
At this type of appliance defrosting cooling compartment is
automatic without any external intervention.
The thermostatic control interrupts the operation of compressor at regular intervals for more or less time - during
this cooling is interrupted - temperature of the cooling
compartment increases and defrosting occurs. After
defrosting the thermostatic control restarts operation of
the system.
Melting water flows through defrost water outlet into the
evaporative tray maintained on the top of compressor and
evaporates due to warmth of it.
Check and clean the outlet of melting water coming during defrosting regularly. If it is clogged the
melting water gathered can cause earlier failure as it can
go to the insulating of the appliance.
Clean the melting water outlet with the supplied pipe
scraper that can be seen in the figure. The pipe scraper has
to be stored in the outlet.
6
Occasionally check the defrost water outlet not to be
clogged up.
The most typical case of clogging up in the defrost water
outlet when you put food wrapped in some paper into the
appliance and this paper contacts back plate of cooling
compartment and freezes to it. If you remove the food right
at this moment the paper will tear and it can cause clogging up in the outlet by getting into it. So you are asked to
be careful - because of the above - when placing foods
wrapped in paper into the appliance.
In case of increased demand e.g. during heatwaves,
the refrigerator temporarily happens to operate constantly - during this the automatic defrosting is ineffective.
Remaining small ice and frost stains on back plate of the
cooling compartment after defrosting period is not abnormal.
Regular cleaning
It is recommended to wash the inside of the refrigerator in
3-4 weeks time.
Household cleaner or soap must not be used.
After you made it no-current wash the appliance using
lukewarm water and wipe it.
Clean the magnet door rubber profile with clean water.
After cleaning plug the appliance to the mains socket.
Dust and dirt collected on the back of the refrigerator, condenser is recommended to be removed and clean the evaporative tray on top of the compressor once or twice a year.
When the refrigerator is not in use
In case the appliance will not be used for a long time follow these steps:
Break the circuit of the appliance.
Remove foods from the refrigerator.
Defrost and clean it as written before.
Leave the door open to avoid a build up of air inside.
GB
Trouble shooting
If something does not work
How to change the bulb
During operation of the appliance some smaller but
annoying trouble can often occur, which does not
require calling a technician out. In the following chart
information is given about them to avoid unnecessary
charges on service.
We draw your attention that operation of appliance
goes with certain sounds (compressor- and circulating
sound). This is not trouble, but means normal operation.
We draw it to your attention again that the
appliance operates discontinuously, so the stopping of compressor does not mean being no-current.
That is why you must not touch the electrical parts of
the appliance before breaking the circuit.
Should the light fail to work you can change it as below:
Break the circuit of the appliance.
Unscrew the plate screw fixing the lamp cover, then take
the lamp cover off in the direction of arrow and the bulb
can be changed. (Type of the bulb: Mignon 322, 230 V, 15
W, E 14 thread)
After changing bulb replace the lamp cover, screw the plate
screw and apply voltage to the appliance.
The lack of light does not influence operation of the refrigerator.
Problem

move in the appliance.
Wash the inside of the appliance using lukewarm water and
mild detergent. Use soft cloth.
After cleaning wipe out the inside of the appliance.
Do not stand the appliance on a sunny place or close to a
radiator or cooker.
If it is unavoidable because of furnishing and the appliance
has to be stood near a cooker take these minimum distances into consideration:
In case of gas or electric cooker 3 cm must be left,
when it is less put a 0,5-1 cm non-flam insulation
between the two appliances.
In case of oil or coal-fired stove the distance must be
30 cms since they give off more heat.
The refrigerator is designed to operate when it is totally
pushed to the wall.
When placing the refrigerator keep minimal distances recommended in figure.
A : placing it under a wall-cupboard
B : placing it freely
Placement
The ambient temperature has an effect on the energy consumption and proper operation of the appliance. When
placing, take into consideration that it is practical to operate the appliance between ambient temperature limits
according to the climate class that is given in the chart
below and can be found in the data label.
Class of climate
Ambient temperature
SN
+10 ... +32 °C
N
+16 ... +32 °C
ST
+18 ... + 38 °C
If the ambient temperature goes below the lower data the
temperature of the cooling compartment can go beyond
the prescribed temperature.
If the ambient temperature goes beyond the upper data
this means longer operating time of the compressor, breakdown in the automatic defrosting increasing temperature
in the cooling compartment or increasing energy consumption.
When placing the appliance ensure that it stands level. This
can be achieved by two adjustable feet (1) at the bottom in
front. 1-1 piece of distance washer (2) are accessories of
the adjustable feet. If levelling the appliance requires, these
washers can be removed.
