WARNINGS
GB
It is most important that this instruction book should be retained with the appliance for future reference.
Should the appliance be sold or transferred to another owner, or should you move house and leave the
appliance, always ensure that the book is supplied with the appliance in order that the new owner can be
acquainted with the functioning of the appliance and the relevant warnings.
These warnings are provided in the interest of safety. You must read them carefully before installing or
using the appliance.
General Safety
ª This appliance is designed to be operated by
adults. Children should not be allowed to tamper
with the controls or play with the product.
ª It is dangerous to alter the specifications or modify
this product in any way.
ª Care must be taken to ensure that the appliance
does not stand on the electrical supply cable.
ª Before any cleaning or maintenance work is
carried out, be sure to switch off and unplug the
appliance.
ª This appliance is heavy. Care should be taken
when moving it.
ª Ice lollies can cause frost burns if consumed
straight from the appliance.
Service / Repair
ª Any electrical work required to install this
appliance should be carried out by a qualified
electrician or competent person.
ª This product should be serviced by an authorized
Service Centre, and only genuine spare parts
should be used.
ª Under no circumstances should you attempt to
repair the appliance yourself.
Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may
cause injury or more serious malfunctioning. Refer
to your local Service Centre, and always insist on
genuine spare parts.
Use
ª The domestic refrigerators and freezers are
designed to be used specifically for the storage of
edible foodstuffs only.
ª Frozen food must not be re-frozen once it has been
thawed out.
ª Manufacturers’ storage recommendations should
be strictly adhered to. Refer to relevant
instructions.
ª The inner lining of the appliance consists of
channels through which the refrigerant passes. If
these should be punctured this would damage the
appliance beyond repair and cause food loss.
DO NOT USE SHARP INSTRUMENTS to scrape
off frost or ice. Frost may be removed by using the
scraper provided. Under no circumstances should
solid ice be forced off the liner. Solid ice should be
allowed to thaw when defrosting the appliance.
See defrost instructions.
ª Do not place carbonated or fizzy drinks in the
freezer as it creates pressure on the container,
which may cause it to explode, resulting in
damage to the appliance.
Installation
ª There are working parts in this product which heat
up. Always ensure that there is adequate
ventilation as a failure to do this will result in
component failure and possible food loss. See
installation instructions.
ª Parts which heat up should not be exposed.
Wherever possible the back of the product should
be against a wall.
ª If the appliance has been transported horizontally,
it is possible that the oil contained in the
compressor flows in the refrigerant circuit. It is
advisable to wait at least two hours before
connecting the appliance to allow the oil to flow
back in the compressor.
Environment Protection
ª 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 symbol
are recyclable.

replace an older appliance having a spring lock
(latch) on the door or lid, be sure to make that
spring lock unusable before you discard the old
appliance. This will prevent it from becoming a
death-trap for a child.
Location
Appliance positioned under overhanging kitchen wall
units (see Fig. 1-A).

USE
Operation
Fresh food refrigeration
Insert the plug into the wall socket.
Open the refrigerator door and turn the thermostat
knob, clockwise, beyond the «O» (STOP) position.
The appliance will start to operate.
The coldest area of the refrigerator is the part
immediately below the evaporator.
Temperature regulation
The temperature is automatically regulated and can be
increased to achieve a higher temperature (warmer)
by rotating the thermostat knob toward lower settings
or reduced (colder) rotating the knob towards higher
settings.
However, the exact setting should be chosen keeping
in mind that the temperature inside the refrigerator
depends on:
room temperature;
how often the door is opened;
the quantity of food stored;
location of appliance.
A medium setting is generally the most suitable.
To stop operation, simply turn the thermostat knob to
position «O».
Important
GB
To obtain the best performance:
do not store warm food or evaporating liquids in the
refrigerator;
do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a
strong flavour.
Position food so that air can circulate freely round it.
Useful hints:
Meat (all types): wrap in polythene bags and place on
the glass shelf above the vegetable drawer.
For safety, store in this way only one or two days at
the most.
Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc..: these should be
covered and may be placed on any shelf.
Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the special drawer(s) provided.
Butter and cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not packed,
must not be kept in the refrigerator.
If the ambient temperature is high or the
appliance is fully loaded, and the appliance is set to
the lowest temperatures, it may run continuously
causing frost to form on the rear wall. In this case
the dial must be set to a higher temperature to
allow automatic defrosting and therefore reduced
energy consumption.
27
Movable shelves
Fig. 5
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with a
series of runners so that the shelves can be positioned
as desired.
D040
Positioning the door shelves
Fig. 6
To permit storage of food packages of various sizes,
the door shelves can be adjusted in height.
To make these adjustments proceed as follows:
Gradually pull the shelf in the direction of the arrows
until it comes off, then reposition as required.
Ice-cube production
This appliance is equipped with one or more trays for
the production of ice-cubes.
Fill these trays with water, then put them in the
freezer compartment.
Do not use metallic instruments to remove the trays
from the freezer.
Defrosting
The evaporator will become gradually covered with
frost which must be removed periodically.
To defrost, proceed as follows:
remove the ice tray;
press the button in the middle of the thermostat dial.
Once defrosted, the refrigerator will start up again
automatically but the water which has collected in the
basin placed under the evaporator must be removed.

MAINTENANCE
Unplug the appliance before carrying out any
maintenance operation.
GB
Replacing the interior light bulb
Warning
The opening on the diffuser gives access to the light
bulb.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling
unit; maintenance and recharging must therefore only
be carried out by authorized technicians.
If the door is open and the light does not come on,
check that it is screwed in adequately; if it still does
not work, replace it with one of the same power.
The rating is shown on the light bulb cover.
Periodic cleaning
Never use metal objects for cleaning your appliance
as it may get damaged.
Clean the inside with warm water and bicarbonate of
soda.
Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long periods, take
the following precautions:
remove the plug from the wall socket;
remove all food;
defrost and clean the interior and all accessories;
leave the door ajar to allow air to circulate to prevent
unpleasant smells.
CUSTOMER SERVICE AND SPARE PARTS
If the appliance is not functioning properly, check
that:
the plug is firmly in the wall socket and the mains
power switch is on;
there is an electricity supply (find out by plugging in
another appliance);
GB
To obtain fast service, it is essential that when you
apply for it you specify the model and serial
number of your appliance which can be found on
the guarantee certificate or on the rating plate
located inside the appliance, on the bottom lefthand side.
the thermostat knob is in the correct position.
If there are water drops on the bottom of the cabinet,
check that the defrost water drain opening is not
obstructed (see “Defrosting” section).
If your appliance is still not working properly after
making the above checks, contact the nearest service
centre.
