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. To stop
operation, simply turn the thermostat knob to
position «O»
Do not use detergents or abrasive
powders, as these will damage the finish.
Temperature regulation
Storage of frozen food
3. Unscrew the middle hinge and the plugs and refit
them on the opposite side
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.
When first starting-up or after a period out of use,
before putting the products in the compartment let
the appliance run for at least two hours on the
coldest setting, then turn the thermostat knob to the
normal operating position.
4. Refit the upper door, the upper pin and the
spacer on the opposite side
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.
5. Unscrew the lower pin and remove the spacer
and refit them on the opposite side
If there is a power failure when food is in the
freezer, do not open the door of the freezer
compartment. The frozen food will not be
affected if the power cut is of short duration (up
to 6-8 hours) and the freezer compartment is full,
otherwise, it is recommended that the food
should be used within a short time (a
temperature increase of the frozen food shortens
its safe storage period).
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.
Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can
be thawed in the refrigerator compartment or at
room temperature, depending on the time available
for this operation.
Small pieces may even be cooked still frozen, directly
from the freezer: in this case, cooking will take longer.
Fresh food refrigeration
Ice-cube production
do not store warm food or evaporating liquids in
the refrigerator;
do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a
strong flavour.
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.

automatically maintained between 0°C and +3°C. No
adjustment is needed by the user.
Food storage and humidity control
Various fresh foods can be stored in the ZERO DEGREE compartment for almost twice as long as in
the refrigerator compartment.
The humidity contained in the foods (in particular
fruit and vegetables) make optimum storage
conditions possible.
The two top drawers are fitted with slits (A - see
figure) (adjustable by means of sliding levers) which
allow the humidity inside the drawers to be varied.
Highest humidity is maintained with the slits closed.
The bottom drawer is low humidity.
Food recommended for storage in the ZERO DEGREE compartment
The following foods can be stored in this compartment:

Periodic cleaning
wrap up the food in aluminium foil or polythene
and make sure that the packages are airtight;
Meat (all types): wrap in polythene bags and place
on the glass shelf above the vegetable drawer.
do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to touch food
which is already frozen, thus avoiding a rise in
temperature of the latter;
For safety, store in this way only one or two days
at the most.
lean foods store better and longer than fatty
ones; salt reduces the storage life of food;
water ices, if consumed immediately after
removal from the freezer compartment, can
possibly cause the skin to be freeze burnt;
Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the special drawer(s)
it is advisable to show the freezing-in date on
each individual pack to enable you to keep tab of
the storage time;
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
on the inner door or special card (if supplied) you
will find sketches of various animals and food
types together with the recommended storage
time (in months) from the time of freezing;
do not put carbonated liquids (fizzy drinks,
etc.) in the freezer compartment as they may
Hints for refrigeration
Useful hints:
Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc..: these should be
covered and may be placed on any shelf.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should
be stored in the bottle rack on the door.

packed, must not be kept in the refrigerator.
Hints for freezing
To help you make the most of the freezing process,
here are some important hints:
the maximum quantity of food which can be
frozen in 24 hrs. is shown on the rating plate;
the freezing process takes 24 hours. No further
food to be frozen should be added during this
only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly
cleaned, foodstuffs;
prepare food in small portions to enable it to be
rapidly and completely frozen and to make it
possible subsequently to thaw only the quantity
Hints for storage of frozen food
To obtain the best performance from this appliance,
you should:
• make sure that the commercially frozen
foodstuffs were adequately stored by the retailer;
• be sure that frozen foodstuffs are transferred
from the foodstore to the freezer in the shortest
possible time;
• not open the door frequently or leave it open
longer than absolutely necessary.
• Once defrosted, food deteriorates rapidly and
cannot be refrozen.
• Do not exceed the storage period indicated by
the food manufacturer.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling
unit; maintenance and recharging must therefore
only be carried out by authorized technicians.
The light bulb inside the refrigerator compartment
can be reached as follows:
- unscrew the light cover securing screw.
- unhook the moving part as shown in the figure.
If the light does not come on when the
door is open, check that it is screwed into place
properly. If it still does not light up, change the
bulb. The rating is shown on the light bulb cover.
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.
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.
The freezer compartment, however, will become
progressively covered with frost. This should be
removed with the special plastic scraper provided,
whenever the thickness of the frost exceeds 4 mm.
During this operation it is not necessary to switch off
the power supply or to remove the foodstuffs.
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.
Interior light
However, when the ice becomes very thick on the
inner liner, complete defrosting should be carried out
and it is advisable to carry out this operation when
the appliance is empty.
Unplug the appliance before carrying out
any maintenance operation.
Clean the inside with warm water and bicarbonate of
soda. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Clean the condenser (black grill) and the
compressor at the back of the appliance with a
brush or a vacuum cleaner. This operstion will
improve the performance of the appliance and save
electricity consumption.
To carry out complete defrosting of the freezer
compartment proceed as follows:
1. pull out the plug from the wall socket or turn the
thermostat knob to the «O» setting;
2. remove any stored food, wrap it in several layers
of newspaper and put it in a cool place;
3. leave the door open, place a basin on the top
shelf of the refrigerator compartment, under the
drain hole, lift the plug as shown in Fig.;
4. when defrosting is completed, dry the interior
thoroughly and refit the plug;
5. turn the thermostat knob back to the required
setting or replace the plug in the power socket.
After letting the appliance run for at least half an
hour, replace the previously removed food into
the compartment.
Never use sharp metal tools to scrape off frost
from the evaporator as you could damage it.
Do not use a maechanical device or any artificial
means to speed up the thawing process other
than those recommended by the manufacturer.
A temperature rise of the frozen food packs,
during defrosting, may shorten their safe storage
