! Before placing your new appliance into operation please read
these operating instructions carefully. They contain important
information for safe use, for installation and for care of the
! Please keep these operating instructions for future reference.
Pass them on to possible new owners of the appliance.
Starting the appliance
Positioning and connection
1. Place the appliance in a well-ventilated humidity-free room.
2. Do not obstruct the rear fan grills. The compressor and
condenser give off heat and require good ventilation to operate
correctly and save energy.
3. Leave a space of at least 10 cm between the top part of the
appliance and any furniture above it, and at least 5 cm between
the sides and any furniture/side walls.
4. Place the device far from heat sources (direct sun light, electric
kitchen etc.)
! Before starting the appliance, follow the installation
instructions (see Installation).
! Before connecting the appliance, clean the compartments and
accessories well with lukewarm water and bicarbonate.
! Electronic versions are provided with a motor protection switch
that powers on the compressor only almost 8 minutes after the
starting. The compressor also starts each time the power supply
is cut off whether voluntarily or involuntarily (blackout).
1. Connect the plug and check that the FRIDGE TEMPERATURE
indicator turns on. If the indicator stays off, please press the
ON/OFF button.
2. Set the FRIDGE TEMPERATURE on an average value. After a
few hours it will be possible to insert food in the fridge.
It is recommended to activate Fridge AIR by turning ON button
in high ambient temperature , over 30°C.
After Air enable temperature in fridge compartment will drop, it
can be necessary to regulate temperature on display.
It is recommended to turn OFF AIR when ambient temperature
turn back to temperature below 30°C, and regulate product to
reach required temperatures. Do not block the air inlet with foods.
1. Install the appliance on a level and rigid floor.
2. If the floor is not perfectly horizontal, adjust the refrigerator by
tightening or loosening the front feet.
Electrical connections
After the appliance has been transported, carefully place it
vertically and wait at least 3 hours before connecting it to the
electricity mains. Before inserting the plug into the electrical socket
ensure the following:
• The appliance is earthed and the plug is compliant with the law.
• The socket can withstand the maximum power of the appliance,
• The voltage must be in the range between the values indicated
on the data plate located on the bottom left side (e.g. 220240V).
• The socket is compatible with the plug of the appliance. If
the socket is incompatible with the plug, ask an authorised
technician to replace it (see Assistance). Do not use extension
cords or multiple sockets.
! Once the appliance has been installed, the power supply cable
and the electrical socket must be easily accessible.
! The cable must not be bent or compressed.
! The cable must be checked regularly and replaced by authorised
technicians only (see Assistance).
! The manufacturer declines any liability should these safety
measures not be observed.
Using the refrigerator to its full potential
• Place only cold or lukewarm foods in the compartment, never
hot foods (See Flexi USE BOX where present)
• Remember that cooked foods do not last longer than raw foods.
• Do not store liquids in open containers: they will increase the
level of humidity in the refrigerator and cause condensation to
SHELVES: with or without grill.
They are removable and adjustable in height and depth thanks to
the special guides (see the picture), allowing easy storage of large
containers and food. Height can be adjusted without complete
removal of the shelf.
* Varies by number and/or position, available only on certain
TEMPERATURE Indicator light*: to identify the coldest area in
the refrigerator.
1. Check that OK appears clearly on the indicator light (see
2. If the word “OK” does not appear it means that the temperature
is too high:set the FRIDGE TEMPERATURE on a colder value,
and then wait 10 hours until the temperature becomes stable.
3. Check the indicator light again: if necessary, readjust it
following the initial process. If large quantities of food have
been added or if the refrigerator door has been opened
frequently, it is normal for the indicator not to show OK. Wait
at least 10 hours before you set the FRIDGE temperature on a
colder value.
FLEXI USE BOX* container
This is the new box which offers maximum flexibility in order to
stock your food in an excellent way.
If you put in the low section of your fridge compartment, on the
crisper box, it becomes CHILLER, and it guarantees a temperature
very close to 0°C, which is ideal to:
-store meat, fish and delicate food;
-rapid cooling of hot foods;
-low temperature defrosting (it inhibits the proliferation of
Using the freezer to its full potential
• Do not re-freeze food that is defrosting or that has already been
defrosted. These foods must be cooked and eaten (within 24
• Fresh food for freezing should not be placed in contact with the
one already frozen; it should be placed in the lower FREEZER
and STORAGE compartment that provides the best freezing
• To freeze fresh food in the best and safest way possible,
activate the SUPER FREEZE function 24 hours before placing
the food in the freezer. After placing the food inside, activate
the SUPER FREEZE function again; it will be deactivated
automatically after 24 hours;
• Do not place glass bottles which contain liquids, and which are corked
or hermetically sealed in the freezer because they could break.
• The maximum quantity of food that may be frozen daily is
indicated on the plate containing the technical properties
located on the bottom left side of the refrigerator compartment
(for example: 2Kg/24h ).
! To avoid blocking the air circulation inside the freezer
compartment, it is advisable not to obstruct the ventilation
holes with food or containers.
! Do not open the door during freezing.
! If there is a power cut or malfunction, do not open the freezer
door. This will help maintain the temperature inside the freezer,
ensuring that foods are conserved for at least 12-18 hours.
! To get more space inside your freezer, you can take out any
drawers (and flaps, if appropriate), from their slots, by putting
your food directly on the provided shelves.
At the first starting of the refrigerator, the black out sensor must
be in this position.
You can get the 0°C temperature, in standard conditions, when
the fridge compartment temperature is at about 4°C.
By decreasing the fridge temperature you decrease the CHILLER
compartment temperature too.
If you put it in the “upper” part of the fridge compartment (A1), it
will be suitable to store fruit and vegetables, thus giving you the
possibility to have a second crisper box.
24 hours later, rotate the blackout sensor of 180 °.
Your food will be safe until the liquids are as shown below.
If one or both of the liquids are dissolved, this is an indication of
increased temperature in the freezer.
Even the partial melting of one of the two liquids can show an
abnormal increase of the internal temperature.
If the liquid A1 melts, food must be eaten in a week.
If the liquid A2 melts, food should be thrown away.
Replacing the light bulb *
• Do not leave the door open for a long period of time. Close
the door of the freezer since the blackout sensor detector can
give the wrong alarm. Load or unload the freezer as quickly
as possible to avoid interventions of the black-out detector
sensor. Leaving the door open for a long period of time, the
liquid can dissolve on the black-out detector sensor, but the
food in the freezer can be still in good condition.
• Check the state of the liquid only in the presence of electricity.
The freezer is able to maintain the frozen food properly for xx
hours (depending on the outside temperature) in the case of
black-out. If the refrigerator is in a condition of black-out for a
shorter period, it is recommended not to open the doors and
• Place the hot food on the back of the freezer compartment.
The hot food that is close to the detector blackout sensor may
dissolve liquids and cause ill-timed interventions.

or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person
responsible for their safety. Children should be Supervised to
ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
Keep packaging material out of the reach of children! It can
become a choking or suffocation hazard.
• Observe local environmental standards when disposing
packaging material for recycling purposes.
• The European Directive 2012/19/EU on Waste Electrical and
Electronic Equipment (WEEE), requires that old household
electrical appliances must not be disposed of in the normal
unsorted municipal waste stream. Old appliances must be
collected separately in order to optimise the recovery and
recycling of the materials they contain and reduce the impact
on human health and the environment. The crossed out
“wheeled bin” symbol on the product reminds you of your
obligation, that when you dispose of the appliance it must be

Respecting and conserving the
• Install the appliance in a fresh and well-ventilated room. Ensure
that it is protected from direct sunlight and do not place it near
heat sources.
• Try to avoid keeping the door open for long periods or opening
the door too frequently in order to conserve energy.
• Do not fill the appliance with too much food: cold air must
circulate freely for food to be preserved properly. If circulation
is impeded, the compressor will work continuously.
• Do not place hot food directly into the refrigerator. The internal
temperature will increase and force the compressor to work
harder and will consume more energy.
• Defrost the appliance if ice forms (see Maintenance). A thick
layer of ice makes cold transference to food products more
difficult and results in increased energy consumption.
If the appliance does not work, before calling for Assistance (see
