NOTE: The panel dimensions must be 2 mm. shorter than the doors. Maximun thickness of
the panel is 4 mm.
Regulation and Control
Temperature Regulator for Refrigerator: «A»
Allows to adjust the temperature inside the refrigerator
according to use and external conditions.
• Pos. 1 = Minimum cold.
• Pos. 6 = Maximum cold.
• Pos. 0 = Motor disconnected.
Interior light:

When changing the light bulb, first remove the protective cover «X», by firmly holding the edge and pulling
it horizontally. (see point A1 «IF SOMETHING DOES
Dinamic Refrigeration (DAC):
models only).
The Dynamic Refrigeration System give, in the fridge
compartment, extra efficiency showed in:
• Quicker refrigeration.
• More homogeneous temperature.
DAC (Dynamic Air Cooling system) has been mainly
designed for hot weather (ambient temperature above
25°), and also when the refrigerator is plenty of food.
To start working, push the switch.
When DAC is switched on, the cold production is higher, thus you should turn the temperature regulator to
an adequate position (
) to avoid excesive cold.
How to use your
Freezer Compartment
Refrigerator Compartment:
This freezer, is marked
, and is suitable
for freezing fresh foodstuffs and keeping food for
long periods.
This compartment is for storing drinks and
fresh food products.
The temperature inside is very evenly distributed. Make sure food does not touch the back
wall, since behind this surface is where the cold is
generated and food could bee partially frozen.
Also, this can impede the circulation of cold air.
This appliance is provided with an automatic
defrosting system. Consequently you will sometimes notice a thin layer of ice or drops of water on
the rear wall.
Freezing of food
1... Place food on the upper grill.
2... Maintain food for at least 24 hours in that position.
3... The maximum quantity to be frozen within 24
hours is shown on the «Rating Plate», depending
on the model.
Keeping frozen food
For optimum consevation, the temperature inside the
freezer compartment must be at least -18°C.
This temperature is adjusted automatically.
Check that the «Temperature Control» is in a middle
position. Sometimes it may be necessary (insufficient
ventilation, high roon temperature, frequent opening
and closing of the door…) to change the position of the
«Temperature Control».
If the appliance should be accidentally switched off by
a fault or power cut, take the following precautions:
• Keep the doors closed at all times.
• Find out how long the stoppage is expected to last.
Once normal power is restored:
A) If the freezer is full and the stoppage has been less
than «Time for temperature Rise» indicated for
each model in the «Technical Features» section,
then no damage will have been caused to the food.
B) If the freezer is not full, the cold will be lost more
quickly. If the food has not started to thaw, then
follow the instructions in «A».
C) If the food has begun to thaw, use them up as
quickly as possible, or cook them and refreeze
ColdStore Compartment (some
The models equippied with this feature in the
fridge part, it is indicated for a best conservatiom of fresh foods as fish, meat seafood, etc.
It is placed in the lower part, directly above of
the vegetable conservation drawer.
