temperature control
The internal temperatures of the freezer compartments and the cooler can
be regulated to allow them to be adjusted for suitable conservation of food.
When using your refrigerator for the first time, we recommend maintaining
the original factory positions (in mid-position). Let it stand for 4 to 6 hours to
allow the temperature to stabilise.
If you need to change the temperature after this period you can adjust it with
the controls.
10
general temperature control
The refrigerator control has temperature graduations for both compartments
that vary from minimum (least cold) to maximum (coldest). If needs be, adjust
the control and monitor the food for a couple of hours. You can readjust it
until you obtain the desired
refrigeration
position
when
to use level. You will have to wait between
4 and 6 hours until the refrigerator reaches the selected temperature.

Changing the position of the air regulator will alter the time it takes the

note: Do not overfill the refrigerator. Leave space between food and
use the shelves provided to hold everything. This will facilitate the
necessary air circulation and prevent it from lower performance.
11
cautions
1. The room temperature influences the performance of your
refrigerator. The higher the external temperature, the colder the
selected temperature in the cooler should be.
2. We recommend selecting a lower temperature if you frequently open
the cooler door.
3. When placing your food inside the refrigerator, try not to block the
airways. This will allow adequate circulation and keep the inside
temperature stable and uniform, thus only freezing the items in the
freezer.
4. Use the top compartment to freeze food, conserving it for longer.
Use the lower compartment to refrigerate food. if your refrigerator
has a rapid cooling compartment, you should take into account that
some fresh fruit and vegetables are cold-sensitive and it is not a
good idea to keep them in this compartment.

express chill zone function
(only available with certain models)
Designed to rapidly cool food and
drinks. Via the exterior panel you
can control the functions of the
express chill zone; the area found
at the top part of the freezer. This
is labelled with the letter d in the
original “Parts and Features” on page 4.
Alternatively, consult the express chill zone section on page 12.
The express chill zone, with its predetermined cooling temperatures for
food and drink, offers great versatility.
On top of this, it gives you three timing options of 20, 15, or 10 minutes,
so that you can select the option which best suits your needs.
note: Before activating the Express Chill Zone Function, you must
deactivate the Holidays or Power Cool functions. If you activate Holidays
or Power Cool while the express chill zone function is on, you will hear an
alarm that signals the programmes can’t be carried out.
13
how does it work?
First, place the food and drink that you want to cool rapidly into the express
chill zone. Make sure to lower the bottom hatch of the express chill zone
before closing the freezer door.
To activate the express chill zone, press the express chill zone button on
the display a number of times until you reach the desired time. After 5
seconds it will start to work.
A countdown clock on the display screen will show the remaining time.
When the time is up, an alarm will sound, the countdown clock will read
“0” and the button light will flash for a minute, indicating that your food and
drink are ready to be taken out. The alarm will sound until you press the
express chill zone button.
The express chill zone Function will deactivate automatically:
a. If you keep pressing the express chill zone button, thereby
exiting the programme before the required time has lapsed.
b. If you press the express chill zone button once the programme
is completed and the alarm is sounding.
c. Once the cooling time has lapsed, the alarm has sounded for one
minute and stopped.
table of recommended chilling times
note: Times vary depending on the initial temperature of your foods and
drinks. If upon programme completion, the items haven’t reached the desired
temperature, you can add additional minutes using the display. The express
chill zone can be reprogrammed after 5 minutes have passed since last
use. If you decide to cool your items for longer, be alert for when the alarm
rings to indicate the foods and drinks are ready and remove them from
the compartment. This will prevent them from freezing, which is especially
important for carbonated beverages.
The following table outlines the times required to cool room temperature

Chocolate Covered Strawberries:
Ingredients
1/2 kg of strawberries
300 g of dark cooking chocolate
You can use any chocolate you prefer, be it white, milk chocolate or
dark chocolate.
Method:
Wash and disinfect the strawberries, leaving the stalks on. Once they are
washed and disinfected, dry them carefully using a paper towel.
Put the strawberries on a tray that is either covered in aluminium foil or
waxed, making sure that the strawberries are not touching each other.
Put this in the express chill zone so that they cool whilst you melt the chocolate.
Chop the chocolate into small pieces and melt in a bain-marie using tepid water.
Make sure that the water in the bain-marie doesn’t boil; only heat to the
temperature necessary to melt the chocolate.
Once the chocolate is melted, take the strawberries out of the express chill zone.
Remove the stalks and dip the strawberries in the melted chocolate.
Once covered, put them back on the tray. Once all the strawberries are covered
and put back on the tray, put the tray in the refrigerator for 10 minutes before
serving to allow the chocolate to stick better to the strawberries.
You should consume this dessert on the day you prepare it.

smart fill ice factory
(only available with certain models)
This no-spill ice-maker with removable cylinder feeds directly into the
ice-tray. It comes with a storage box that can
hold up to 900g of ice.
starting up:
Remove the water cylinder found at the top
of the Smart Fill Ice Factory (SFIF) by pulling
the top middle part towards you.
Once removed, place the water cylinder on a
flat surface. Open the top, which you’ll find in
the middle centre. To avoid spillages, make
sure that there’s no residual ice obstructing
the valve of the cylinder before you fill it with
water. Pour 180 ml of purified water into the
cylinder or fill it to the maximum level.
Replace the top, placing pressure on the
middle. It’s essential that it’s secure in the
centre in order to avoid water leaking out.
Put the cylinder back in its original position
making sure it’s securely connected. You
should be able to see and hear the water
filling the ice-tray which indicates that the
cylinder is correctly installed.
20
note: It’s important that once you have completed the above steps you make
sure that the water cylinder is correctly installed to prevent water freezing in
the cylinder’s interior.
caution: Only fill with drinking water.
removal of ice
1. After a while, your ice cubes will be
ready for use. To remove them, pull the
handle slowly towards you until it’s fully
down. At this point it will be necessary
to pull the handle a little more forcefully
until you hear the ice fall into the lower
compartment of your Smart Fill Ice
Factory.
2. This compartment can hold up 3
complete releases of the ice-tray. To
remove the ice, simply lift and pull the
storage box that you will find in the lower
part. This box is designed to be brought
wherever you wish. To make more ice,
repeat the process.
note: The cylinder can only hold one load at
a time. Before repeating the process, make
sure that the tray is empty.
note: The ice produced may vary in size.
important: When removing the ice cubes, pull
the handle all the way down. You will feel resistance at this point, but you need to pull a little more
so that the ice-tray twists and releases the ice into
the lower compartment. Once this point has been
reached, the process is complete.
cleaning the smart fill ice factory
When cleaning your Smart Fill Ice Factory it is imperative that you only use
a soft sponge with water and a neutral soap. Afterwards, leave it to dry.
DO NOT use a steel wool sponge or detergent to clean the SFIF (specially
the ice-bucket), as this could affect how it works, change how it looks, and
affect the flavour of your ice cubes.
cleaning the cylinder
Only use a soft sponge with water and a neutral soap to clean. Afterwards,
leave it to dry. Don’t use steel wool sponges or detergents, knives or forks
as these could scratch or damage the central valve. If there’s frozen water
inside the cylinder, let it melt or use tepid water to speed up the process.
21
cleaning the tray
1. Firstly, open the front door where
you see a small lip on the right-hand
side. Pull the door towards you until
completely open.
2. Then, to remove the ice-tray from its
fitting, take it by the right-hand side
and at the same time, pull it down
and towards you. Finally, pull it out by
the centre, keeping it horizontal.
3. To replace the ice-tray in the Smart
Fill Ice Factory, align the short sides
with the lateral fittings and push it
until it’s completely inserted.
4. Afterwards, push the tray by the right-hand side until you hear a click,
which will ensure the tray securely in
place while working.
5. Close the lid of the Smart Fill Ice
Factory. Your device will be ready for
use once again.
important: Use tepid water to remove residual ice which will form with
regular use of the Smart Fill Ice Factory. This residue could form on the
lid you use to fill the water cylinder, the cylinder valve, and the ice-box,
thus affecting the working of different parts of the system.
Don’t use ice-picks, forks, or knives to remove the residual ice as to do
so could damage the Smart Fill Ice Factory.

carry sauces and leftovers.
In certain models the egg box can’t be hung from the shelf.
24
express chill zone
(only available with certain models)
This practical compartment has been
devised to rapidly cool foods and drinks.
Closing the lid causes the express chill
zone temperature
to be lower than that of the rest of the
freezer. This allows you to rapidly cool items
such as bottles of wine, beer, and food. It
can also be used to accelerate the freezing
process, saving you time.
The control for this compartment is found on the exterior display of your
refrigerator.
For details on how to use this, see page 12.
If you don’t wish to use the express chill zone, you can lift the lid and use
the space in the same way as the rest of the freezer.

26
air distribution
Your refrigerator’s air flow system is
entirely automatic and intuitive.
You don’t need to defrost your
refrigerator as this will happen
automatically.
(No Frost System)
This system ensures the optimal
conservation of your food as it
increases air flow and distributes it
evenly throughout the refrigerator.
Furthermore, a suitable temperature
is maintained via a level sensor which
activates the air flow in the refrigerator
when necessary.
important: Avoid placing objects
too close to the air conductor grille
in your freezer which leads to
your Smart Station, as this could
prevent air from flowing correctly
into the Smart Station.
note: The Smart Station comes with
an air conductor which brings cold air
from the freezer to the Smart Station
guaranteeing the perfect temperature
for your favourite foods.
important: The air flow exits must
never be obstructed.
27
getting the most from your refrigerator
After Buying Your Foodstuffs
After getting home from the supermarket, refrigerate or freeze perishable
foods as soon as possible.
We recommend that you press the Power Cool button so that the food can
quickly reach a suitable temperature.
To make sure that liquids which may leak from meat packaging don’t contaminate other foods in your refrigerator, we recommend that you keep all
meat in the Meat Keeper provided with some models. If your model doesn’t
contain this feature, store your meat products in plastic bags.
How to Store Your Food
• Store cooked food in closed containers and place them on a
shelf above where raw foodstuffs are being stored. This will avoid
contamination.
• To prevent contamination between different foods we recommend
keeping food in lidded containers, wrapped up, or well-sealed using
aluminium foil, plastic wrap, or a lunch-box.
• Do not store food in an open tin, transfer it into another container as
oxygen in the air could react with the metal and damage your health.
• Ham, cold meats, and cheese should be kept in individual sealed bags
or airtight plastic containers.
• Allow hot foods to cool somewhat before storing them inside small
containers in the refrigerator. You will save light and prevent other foods
in the refrigerator from being heated and thus adversely affected.
• Make sure that jugs of flavoured or natural water have secure lids to
prevent undesirable odours affecting them.
• If you wish, store your fruit and vegetables in plastic bags in your
refrigerator drawers. This micro-environment will prevent different
gases from mixing and thus conserve your food for longer.
• We recommend you don’t wash fruit and vegetables before storing
them in the refrigerator, as doing so could damage the skin and
increase decomposition rate. If they are very dirty, keep them in
a plastic bag so that they don’t

evenly throughout.
• Sodas and beers keep perfectly on the upper door shelves, where they
are easily accessible and exposed to the cold quickly and directly.
• When putting in and taking out food and drink try not to leave the door
open too long. This will reduce your refrigerator’s energy consumption
and make it more efficient.
• When freezing food, prepare small portions and place them in such a
way that the air in the freezer can circulate around them. This will make
freezing time faster and ensure you use the entire portion.
• Always take heed of use-by dates on frozen food as indicated by the
manufacturer.
• Do not place sealed glass containers which have any liquids inside in
the freezer, as these could break and cause an accident.
• Products such as sorbet or pieces of ice should not be consumed at too
cold temperature.
• When putting a food item into the freezer try to avoid putting it on top of
or too close to an item that is already frozen.
Avoid storing food in the freezer for excessive durations of time.

solving problems
cleaning and servicing
your refrigerator
• Always disconnect your refrigerator
before any type of servicing.
• Never use toxic products, abrasives,
or steel-wool sponges as these will
damage the surface of your product.
• Use a soft sponge or damp cloth, and
a neutral soap to wash. Rinse the refrigerator, and dry it with a clean
and dry cloth. You can also use a solution of bicarbonate of soda (one
tablespoon dissolved in two litres of tepid water) to clean the inside.
• Don’t use steel-wool sponges or sharp objects as these could scratch
the refrigerator or its shelves.
• To make cleaning easier all our models come with high-resistance
glass shelves with anti-spill edges. These give you time to clean liquid
spillages before they spread.
• Use a brush, cloth, or sponge to remove dust build-up from the
condenser. Try to do this at least once every 6 months.
heating of areas near the freezer
Your refrigerator comes with an anti-condensation
mechanism.
The heating of some areas external to your
refrigerator is normal. This happens to prevent
water droplets from condensing on the outside of
your refrigerator. However, if room temperature
and humidity are higher than usual, light
condensation may form. Dry with a cloth.
general precautions
• Don’t touch the inside of the freezer door with wet hands.
• Don’t let children hang from the doors or play near the refrigerator
when the door is open, as they may injure themselves, bang into it, or
get trapped.
• Don’t let children hang from shelves or the Smart Station door, as
excessive weight could break these.
• Sometimes, it can cause trouble to reopen the refrigerator door
immediately after closing. This normal occurrence is a result of a
vacuum formation inside the refrigerator, caused by air at different
temperatures combining. Wait 10 to 15 seconds and the doors will
open easily once again.
Before throwing out your old refrigerator or freezer, take the following precuations to prevent the risk of a child entrapment.
• Take off the doors
• Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
30
holidays and absences
• For absences greater than a fortnight unplug your refrigerator.
• Leave your refrigerator, including the ice-box, clean and empty.
• Leave the door partly-opened, using something to block it from closing,
as this will facilitate ventilation and prevent bad odours from building up.
• For short absences you can leave your refrigerator plugged in. Remember
to save energy by activating the Holidays Function.
• Remember that power outages can occur when you are not at home.
moving
important: If you have to lay the unit on its side for transportation
purposes, make sure to place it on its left-hand side (looking at the front of
the refrigerator).
Before moving your refrigerator from its place, make sure the levelling
screws are not touching the floor so that the wheels can freely move the
refrigerator.
important: After moving your refrigerator, follow the installation instructions
so that the refrigerant gas and the compressor oil can settle.
power outages
• The majority of energy supply interruptions are corrected within a few
hours. Your refrigerator’s interior temperature will not be affected within the
first 4 hours. If the power outage persists for more than 6 hours, we suggest
placing bags of ice in both the cooler and the freezer to conserve the food.
• Avoid opening refrigerator doors.
• If you notice variations in the voltage, we recommend that your turn off
and/or disconnect your refrigerator until the voltage returns to normal.
Increases and decreases in the light intensity from the bulbs indicate
these variations are occurring.
• If you model comes with the Power Cool, Holidays, and Express Chill Zone
functions, these will be deactivated (indicated by the lights switching off).
This won’t affect your refrigerator upon the power returning, but you will
have to reactivate these functions to continue using them.
31
normal operating sounds
While in operation, your refrigerator will make some typical sounds. Below,
you can find a description of the normal operating sounds:
• Cracking. You hear this when the ice breaks. It’s the same sound which
occurs when the ice-trays are removed from the freezer and exposed
to room temperature.
• Compressor noise. This is a characteristic of the motor. It means that
the compressor is working.
• Gas expansion noise. This is a noise similar to water boiling.
• Cooling system noise. This is characteristic of the ventilator, which
shows that the system is functioning. It is commonly heard when you
close the refrigerator door.
changing the light bulb
Some models have lighting in the cooler and the freezer, while others only
have a cooler light.
To replace the bulb, following the instructions below:
1. Disconnect your refrigerator.
2. Remove the bulb cover by pressing inwards on the sides of the cover,
moving the cover downwards from the front. Once the cover has come
away from the upper supports, pull it towards you to remove it from the
temperature control.
3. Remove the bulb by turning it anti-clockwise.
4. Replace the bulb with another of the same electrical characteristics and
dimensions.
5. Once you have changed the bulb, put the light bulb cover back on by
aligning the back tabs of the cover with the temperature control slots.
Then, push the cover upwards until you hear a click.
important:
Some models come with LED lighting for their food compartment. If this
component ceases to work, blows, or there are variations in brightness,
you have to phone a skilled technician as to ensure coverage by the
guarantee it must be he/she who replaces the component.
