Switching on
1. Plug the mains plug into the mains socket.
2. Press ON/OFF switch.
3. The pilot light will light up.
Switching off
1. Keep ON/OFF switch pressed for more than 5 seconds.
2. After that, a countdown of the temperature from -3 -2 -1 will be shown. When “1”
appears the appliance is turned off. The temperature indicator switches off. The Pilot
light switches off.
Temperature indicator
The temperature indicator shows the fridge temperature currently set .
Temperature regulation
The temperature can be adjusted between +2°C and +8°C.
By pressing the Temperature regulators, the current temperature setting flashes on the
Temperature indicator. It is possible to modify the setting temperature only with flashed
indicator.
• To set a warmer temperature, press Temperature regulator +.
• To set a colder temperature, press Temperature regulator -.
6
Control panel
The Temperature indicator displays the set temperature.
The set temperature will be reached within 24 hours.
After a long period out of use it is not necessary to set again the temperature because it
remains stored.
A medium setting is generally the most suitable.
The exact setting should be chosen keeping in mind that the temperature inside the appliance depends on:
• room temperature
• how often the door is opened
• the quantity of food stored
• the location of the appliance.
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 Temperature regulator must be set to a higher temperature to
allow automatic defrosting and therefore reduced energy consumption.
COOLMATIC function
The COOLMATIC function is suitable for quick cooling of large quantities of goods in the
refrigerator.
To activate the function, do these steps:
1. Press the COOLMATIC switch.
2. The COOLMATIC indicator will light up.
3. A temperature setting of +2°C is automatically selected.
To deactivate the function, do these steps:
1. Press the COOLMATIC switch.
2. The COOLMATIC indicator goes out.
The COOLMATIC function stops automatically after about 6 hours.
If the COOLMATIC function is switched on the temperature setting may not be changed.
Holiday function
This function allows you to keep the refrigerator shut and empty during a long holiday
period (e.g. the summer holidays) without the formation of a bad smell.
The fridge compartment must be empty when the holiday function is on.
To activate the function, do this step:
1. press continuously the temperature regulator (warmest) until the letter "H" (Holiday)
appears on the temperature indicator. The Holiday function sets the temperature approx +15°C. The refrigerator is in the energy-saving mode.
To deactivate the function, do this step:
1. set the required temperature by pressing the fridge temperature regulator.
First use
7
FIRST USE
Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first time, wash the interior and all internal accessories with lukewarm water and some neutral soap so as to remove the typical smell of a
brand-new product, then dry thoroughly.
Do not use detergents or abrasive powders, as these will damage the finish.
DAILY USE
this appliance is sold in France.
In accordance with regulations valid in this country it must be provided with a special
device (see figure) placed in the lower compartment of the fridge to indicate the coldest
zone of it.
Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with a
series of runners so that the shelves can be positioned as desired.
For better use of space, the front half-shelves
can lie over the rear ones.
Positioning the door shelves
To permit storage of food packages of various sizes, the door shelves can be placed at
different heights.
8
Helpful hints and tips
Positioning the door half shelf
The door half shelf can be placed at different heights.
To make these adjustments proceed as follow:
1. lift the shelf with the door half shelf upwards and out of the holders in the door
2. remove the retaining bracket out of the
guide under the shelf
3. Reverse the above operation to insert
the half shelf at a different height.
HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
Hints for energy saving
• Do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than absolutely necessary.
• If the ambient temperature is high and the Temperature Regulator is set to low temperature and the appliance is fully loaded, the compressor may run continuously, causing frost or ice on the evaporator. If this happens, set the Temperature Regulator toward warmer settings to allow automatic defrosting and so a saving in electricity consumption.
Hints for fresh food refrigeration
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 around it
Hints for refrigeration
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.
Care and Cleaning

CARE AND CLEANING
CAUTION!
Unplug the appliance before carrying out any maintenance operation.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling unit; maintenance and recharging
must therefore only be carried out by authorized technicians.
Periodic cleaning
The equipment has to be cleaned regularly:
• clean the inside and accessories with lukewarm water and some neutral soap.
• regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure they are clean and free from
debris.
• rinse and dry thoroughly.
Do not pull, move or damage any pipes and/or cables inside the cabinet.
Never use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning products or wax polishes to clean the interior as this will damage the surface and leave a strong odour.
Clean the condenser (black grill) and the compressor at the back of the appliance with a
brush or a vacuum cleaner. This operation will improve the performance of the appliance
and save electricity consumption.
Take care of not to damage the cooling system.
Many proprietary kitchen surface cleaners contain chemicals that can attack/damage the
plastics used in this appliance. For this reason it is recommended that the outer casing of
this appliance is only cleaned with warm water with a little washing-up liquid added.
After cleaning, reconnect the equipment to the mains supply.
Defrosting of the refrigerator
Frost is automatically eliminated from the evaporator of the refrigerator compartment
every time the motor compressor stops, during normal use. The defrost water drains out
through a trough into a special container at the back of the appliance, over the motor
compressor, where it evaporates.
10
What to do if…
It is important to periodically clean the defrost
water drain hole in the middle of the refrigerator compartment channel to prevent the water
overflowing and dripping onto the food inside.
Use the special cleaner provided, which you will
find already inserted into the drain hole.
Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long periods, take the following precautions:
• disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
• remove all food
• defrost 4)and clean the appliance and all accessories
• leave the door/doors ajar to prevent unpleasant smells.
If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to check it once in a while to prevent the
food inside from spoiling in case of a power failure.
WHAT TO DO IF…
WARNING!
Before troubleshooting, disconnect the mains plug from the mains socket.
