the appliance.
• Set the knob to a medium position, 3 or
4, for long-term storage of food in the
appliance.
• Set the knob to 5 position for freezing
the fresh food. The appliance will run for
colder temperatures.
3.3 Temperature Settings Warnings
• The ambient temperature, temperature of
the freshly stored food and how often the
door is opened affects the temperature in
the refrigerator compartment. If required,
change the temperature setting.
• It is not recommended that you operate
your fridge in environments colder than
10°C in terms of its efficiency.
• When setting the thermostat, take into
consideration how often the appliance
doors are opened and closed, how much
food is stored in the refrigerator, and the
environment in which the refrigerator is
located.
• When the appliance is first switched on,
allow it to run for 24 hours in order to
reach operating temperature. During this
time, do not open the door and do not
keep a large quantity of food inside.
• Unplug your appliance during a power cut
to prevent damage to the compressor.
Once power is restored, delay plugging
in your appliance for 5 to 10 minutes.
This will help prevent damage to the
appliance's components.
• Your appliance is designed to operate in
the ambient temperature ranges stated
in the standards, according to the climate
class stated in the information label. It
is not recommended that your fridge is
operated in the environments which are
outside of the stated temperature ranges.
This will reduce the cooling efficiency of
the appliance.
EN - 15
• Your appliance is designed to operate in
the ambient temperature (ST/N = 16°C

4 FOOD STORAGE
4.1 Refrigerator Compartment
• To reduce humidity and avoid the
consequent formation of frost, always
store liquids in sealed containers in the
refrigerator. Frost tends to concentrate in
the coldest parts of the evaporating liquid
and, in time, your appliance will require
more frequent defrosting.
• Never place warm food in the
refrigerator. Warm food should be
allowed to cool at room temperature
and should be arranged to ensure
adequate air circulation in the refrigerator
compartment.
• Make sure no items are in direct contact
with the rear wall of the appliance as
frost will develop and packaging will stick
to it. Do not open the refrigerator door
frequently.
• We recommend that meat and clean fish
are loosely wrapped and stored on the
glass shelf just above the vegetable bin
where the air is cooler, as this provides
the best storage conditions.
• Store loose fruit and vegetable items in
the crisper containers.
• Store loose fruit and vegetables in the
crisper.
• Storing fruit and vegetables separately
helps prevent ethylene-sensitive
vegetables (green leaves, broccoli,
carrot, etc.) being affected by ethylenereleaser fruits (banana, peach, apricot,
fig etc.).
• Do not put wet vegetables into the
refrigerator.
• Storage time for all food products
depends on the initial quality of the food
and an uninterrupted refrigeration cycle
before refrigerator storage.
• To avoid cross-contamination do not
store meat products with fruit and
vegetables. Water leaking from meat
may contaminate other products in the
refrigerator. You should package meat
products and clean any leakages on the
shelves.
• Do not put food in front of the air flow
passage.
• Consume packaged foods before the
recommended expiry date.
NOTE: Potatoes, onions and garlic
should not be stored in the refrigerator.
The table below is a quick guide to show
you the most efficient way to store the
major food groups in your refrigerator
compartment.

4.2 Freezer Compartment
• The freezer is used for storing frozen
food, freezing fresh food, and making ice
cubes.
• For freezing fresh food; wrap and seal
fresh food properly, that is the packaging
should be air tight and shouldn’t leak.
Special freezer bags, aluminum foil
polythene bags and plastic containers
are ideal.
• Do not store fresh food next to frozen
food as it can thaw the frozen food.
• Before freezing fresh food, divide it into
portions that can be consumed in one
sitting.
EN - 17
• Consume thawed frozen food within a
short period of time after defrosting
• Never place warm food in the freezer
compartment as it will thaw the frozen
food.
• Always follow the manufacturer's
instructions on food packaging when
storing frozen food. If no information is
provided food, should not be stored for
more than 3 months from the date of
purchase.
• When purchasing frozen food, make sure
that it has been stored under appropriate
conditions and that the packaging is not
damaged.
• Frozen food should be transported in
appropriate containers and placed in the
freezer as soon as possible.
• Do not purchase frozen food if the
packaging shows signs of humidity
and abnormal swelling. It is probable
that it has been stored at an unsuitable
temperature and that the contents have
deteriorated.
• The storage life of frozen food depends
on the room temperature, the thermostat
setting, how often the door is opened,
the type of food, and the length of time
required to transport the product from
the shop to your home. Always follow the
instructions printed on the packaging and
never exceed the maximum storage life
indicated.
• The maximum amount of fresh food (in
kg) that can be frozen in 24 hours is
indicated on the appliance label.
• To use the maximum capacity of the
freezer compartment, use the glass
shelves for the upper and middle section,
and use the lower basket for the bottom
section.
• Use the fast freezing shelf to freeze
home cooking (and any other food
which needs to be frozen quickly) more
quickly because of the freezing shelf’s
greater freezing power. Fast freezing
shelf is the bottom drawer of the freezer
compartment.
NOTE: If you attempt to open the freezer
door immediately after closing it, you
will find that it will not open easily. This
is normal. Once equilibrium has been
reached, the door will open easily.
Important note:
• Never refreeze thawed frozen food.
• The taste of some spices found in cooked
dishes (anise, basilica, watercress,
vinegar, assorted spices, ginger, garlic,
onion, mustard, thyme, marjoram, black
pepper, etc.) changes and they assume
a strong taste when they are stored for a
long period of time. Therefore, add small
amounts of spices to food to be frozen, or
the desired spice should be added after
the food has thawed.
• The storage time of food is dependent
on the type of oil used. Suitable oils are
margarine, calf fat, olive oil and butter.
Unsuitable oils are peanut oil and pig fat.
• Food in liquid form should be frozen in
plastic cups and other food should be
frozen in plastic folios or bags.

5 CLEANING AND
MAINTENANCE
Disconnect the unit from the power
supply before cleaning.
Do not wash your appliance by
pouring water on it.
Do not use abrasive products,
detergents or soaps for cleaning the
appliance. After washing, rinse with clean
water and dry carefully. When you have
finished cleaning, reconnect the plug to the
mains supply with dry hands.
• Make sure that no water enters the lamp
housing and other electrical components.
• The appliance should be cleaned
regularly using a solution of bicarbonate
of soda and lukewarm water.
• Clean the accessories separately by
hand with soap and water. Do not wash
accessories in a dish washer.
• Clean the condenser with a brush at least
twice a year. This will help you to save on
energy costs and increase productivity.

5.1 Defrosting
Defrosting the Refrigerator
Compartment
• Defrosting occurs automatically in
the refrigerator compartment during
operation. The water is collected by
the evaporation tray and evaporates
automatically.
• The evaporation tray and the water drain
hole should be cleaned periodically with
the defrost drain plug to prevent the
water from collecting at the bottom of the
refrigerator instead of flowing out.
• You can also clean the drain hole by
pouring half a glass of water down it.
Freezer defrosting process
• Small amounts of frost will accumulate
inside the freezer, depending on the
length of time the door may be left open
or the amount of moisture introduced.
It is essential to ensure that no frost or
ice is allowed to form in places where
it will affect the close fitting of the door
seal. This might allow air to penetrate the
cabinet, encouraging continuous running
of the compressor. Thin frost formation
is quite soft and can be removed with a
brush or plastic scraper. Do not use metal
or sharp scrapers, mechanical devices or
other means to accelerate the defrosting
process. Remove all dislodged frost from
the cabinet floor. It is not necessary to
switch off the appliance for the removal
of thin frost.
• For the removal of heavy ice deposits,
disconnect the appliance from the
mains supply, empty the contents into
cardboard boxes and wrap in thick
blankets or layers of paper to keep cool.
Defrosting will be most effective if carried
out when the freezer is nearly empty
and should be carried out as quickly
as possible to prevent an unnecessary
increase in the temperature of the
contents.
• Do not use metal or sharp scrapers,
mechanical devices or other means to
accelerate the defrosting process. An
increase in temperature of frozen food
during defrosting will shorten the storage
life. Keep contents well wrapped and cool
while defrosting is taking place.
• Dry the inside of the compartment with a
sponge or a clean cloth.
• To accelerate the defrosting process,
place one or more bowls of warm water
in the freezer compartment.
• Examine the contents when replacing
them in the freezer and if some of the
packages have thawed out, they should
be eaten within 24hours, or be cooked
and re-frozen.
• After defrosting is complete, clean the
inside of the appliance with a solution
of warm water and a little bicarbonate
of soda, then dry thoroughly. Wash all
removable parts in the same way and
reassemble. Reconnect the appliance
EN - 21
to the mains supply and leave for 2 to
3 hours on setting number '5' before
introducing the food back into the freezer.

6 SHIPMENT AND
REPOSITIONING
7 BEFORE CALLING AFTERSALES SERVICE
6.1 Transportation and Changing
Positioning
• The original packaging and foam may be
kept for re-transportation (optional).
• Fasten your appliance with thick
packaging, bands or strong cords and
follow the instructions for transportation
on the packaging.
• Remove all movable parts (shelves,
accessories, vegetable bins, and so on)
or fix them into the appliance against
shocks using bands when re-positioning
or transporting.
Always carry your appliance in the
upright position.
6.2 Repositioning the Door
• It is not possible to change the opening
direction of your appliance door if door
handles are installed on the front surface
of the appliance door.
• It is possible to change the opening
direction of the door on models without
handles.
• If the door-opening direction of your
appliance can be changed, contact the
nearest Authorised Service Centre to
change the opening direction.
If your refrigerator is not working properly,
there may be a minor problem. Check the
following.
The appliance does not operate
Check if:
• There is power
• The mains is connected
• The thermostat setting is on the “•”
position
• The socket is defective. To check this,
plug another working appliance into the
same socket.
The appliance performs poorly
Check if:
• The appliance is overloaded
• The doors are closed properly
• There is any dust on the condenser
• There is enough space near the rear and
side walls.
The appliance is noisy
The cooling gas which circulates in the
refrigerator circuit may make a slight
noise (bubbling sound) even when the
compressor is not running. Do not worry,
this is normal. If you hear a different sound,
check whether:
• The appliance is level
• Anything is touching the rear of the
appliance
• Objects in the appliance are vibrating.
Your refrigerator is operating noisily
The following noises can be heard during
normal operation of the appliance.
Cracking (ice cracking) noise occurs:
• During automatic defrosting.
• When the appliance is cooled
or warmed (due to expansion of
appliance material).
Clicking noise occurs: When the
thermostat switches the compressor on/
off.
EN - 23
Motor noise: Indicates the compressor
is operating normally. The compressor
may cause more noise for a short time
when it is first activated.
Bubbling noise and splashing
occurs: Due to the flow of the
refrigerant in the tubes of the system.
Water flowing noise occurs: Due
to water flowing to the evaporation
container. This noise is normal during
defrosting.
There is water in the lower part of the
refrigerator
Check if:
The drain hole for the water is not clogged
(use defrost drain plug to clean the drain
hole).
Recommendations
• If the appliance is switched off or
unplugged, wait at least 5 minutes before
plugging the appliance in or restarting
it in order to prevent damage to the
compressor.
• The cooling unit of your refrigerator is
located at the rear of the appliance.
Therefore, water droplets or ice may
form on the rear surface of your fridge
due to the operation of the compressor
at specified intervals. This is normal,
there is no need to perform a defrosting
operation unless there is excessive ice.
• If you do not intend to use your fridge for
a long period of time (such as during the
summer holidays), set the thermostat to
“•” position, defrost and clean your fridge,
leaving the door open to prevent the
formation of mildew and odour.
• If a problem persists after you have
followed all the above instructions,
please consult the nearest authorised
service centre.
• The appliance you have purchased is
designed for domestic use only. It is not
suitable for commercial or common use.
If the consumer uses the appliance in a
way that does not comply with this, we
emphasise that the manufacturer and
the dealer will not be responsible for any
repair and failure within the guarantee
period.

internal temperature and therefore
causing continuos functionaliting of the
compressor.
3. Do not excessively stuff foods so as to
ensure proper air circulation.
4. Defrost the appliance in case there is ice
to facilitate the transfer of cold.
5. In case of absence of electrical energy, it
is advisable to keep the refrigerator door
closed.
6. Open or keep the doors of the appliance
open as little as possible.
7. Avoid adjusting the setting to
temperatures too cold.
8. Remove dust present on the rear of the
appliance.
