"Noise, inconveniences, minor breakdowns" section), please contact an official after-sales service or a qualified professional.

If the appliance has been delivered to your home in a horizontal position, stand it upright and then wait 2 hours before plugging it in. A small amount of oil may have flowed into the refrigeration circuit, and you must allow time for this to flow back towards the motor before connecting the appliance. Failure to do so may damage the appliance.

- Carry out an initial cleaning operation (see the section on "Installing your appliance") before connecting your appliance to the electrical supply. Disconnect your appliance prior to performing any maintenance operation. Grasp the plug directly, instead of pulling on the power cable.

- Do not use any other method than those we recommend in this manual for speeding up defrosting.

- Do not use electrical equipment inside compartments unless the manufacturer recommends otherwise.

Your appliance's refrigeration circuit is filled with isobutane refrigerant

(R600a), a natural, non-polluting gas that is, however, inflammable. Ensure that none of the components in your appliance's refrigeration circuit have been damaged during transport or installation. If you detect any damage, keep your appliance away from flames or any type of source of heat or combustion and ventilate it location.

20

Respecting the environment and saving energy

EN

To reduce your appliance’s electrical consuption:

- Install it in a suitable place (see "Installation of your appliance" section).

- Leave the door open as little as possible. Do not place food that is still hot in your refrigerator, particularly in the case of soups or dishes that release a lot of steam.

- Periodically check the door seal and make sure that the door close firmly. If they do not, lease contact our After-sales service.

In compliance with the latest legislation concerning environmental protection, your appliance does not contain any CFCs. Instead it uses a gas called R600a. The exact type of refrigerant used in your appliance is also clearly indicated on the identification plate inside your appliance's refrigerator section, low down on the left-hand wall.

R600a is a non-polluting gas that does not harm the ozone layer and whose contribution to the greenhouse effect is virtually zero.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

This appliance's packaging material is recyclable. Help recycle it and protect the environment by dropping it off in the municipal receptacles provided for this purpose.

Your appliance also contains a great amount of recyclable material. It is marked with this label to indicate that in countries that are a members of the European Union the used appliances should not be mixed with other waste. This way, the appliance recycling organised by your manufacturer will be done under the best possible conditions, in compliance with European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic

Equipment. Contact your town hall or your retailer for the used appliance collection points closest to your home.

We thank you doing your part to protect the environment.

BIOCARE - anti-bacterial walls

This is a specific coating on the lining of your refrigerator consisting of silver ions, which prevent bacteria from developing.

The anti-bacterial coating does not require any particular treatment and remains active throughout your appliance's operating life.

However, you must clean your appliance regularly. See the section on "Cleaning your appliance".

60 seconds.

• At the same time, the warning light will switch on.

• To make the beep stop, press any button (+/-) or close the door. The light will remain on until the door is closed.

• If this signal appears instead of the temperature, it means that the temperature sensor are probably defective.

• A safety procedure starts automatically to ensure that the appliance can operate but the Technical Assistance Department must be called.

• If this letter appears in place of the temperature, it means that there is a problem with the electricity supply. An automatic testing procedure is initiated for 8 minutes and then normal operation resumes.

ATTENTION

Your refrigerator's internal temperature is strictly dependent on the ambient temperature, how frequently the appliance's door are opened and the amount and the temperature of the food you have placed in the refrigerator. You must therefore regularly check the temperature indicator on your refrigerator and adjust the temperature setting if necessary.

The temperatures that appear on the screen correspond to the requested temperatures and not the actual temperatures.

27

Mixed or regulated cold

(depending on the model)

This guide to installing and using your fridge-freezer is applicable to several models. Your appliance is equipped with one or other of these functions. You can check very quickly by comparing your refrigerator to the illustrations on this page.

Your appliance is equipped with a cold air ventilation system:

- Mixed cold (A): the fan mixes the air providing greater temperature homogeneity and avoiding condensation forming on the glass shelves.

- Regulated cold (B): a distribution column directs the air to every level, providing a very homogeneous temperature and avoiding any condensation forming on the shelves.

Apart from these everyday advantages, we recommend that you use the fan:

- When the climatic conditions are extreme

(e.g. a heat wave).

- If you have just placed a large amount of food in your appliance's.

To start the fan:

- Appliance without electronics: press the ON button (Drawing C)

- Appliance with electronics: this function is initiated by electronic system on the control panel (See the symbols table in the section

"Switching on and adjusting the appliance").

The fan does not operate continuously. When it starts up depends on the refrigerator's internal temperature. It is therefore quite normal for the fan not to operate sometimes when the Start button has been correctly pressed.

Preparing food for the refrigerator

EN

Before placing food in your appliance:

Carefully wrap fresh foods: they will then keep their flavour, colour, humidity content and freshness. You also avoid the taste of some foods contaminating the taste of others. Only vegetables, fruit and salad vegetables can be stored in the vegetable compartment without being packed.

Let hot dishes and drinks cool down outside the appliance.

Remove the cardboard packs from around yoghurt pots.

Check the consume-by dates on the products you have bought. You should not exceed these.

Arranging food in your refrigerator

The temperature inside your refrigerator is not uniform. Some areas are colder than others and you must store your food in the appropriate areas according to their type to ensure that they can be kept safely.

Butter

Cream desserts, cheese, yoghurts, crème fraîche, sauces, eggs

Bottles, milk

Meat, poultry, game and fresh fish, cooked meats

Fresh vegetables, fruit

29

Arranging food in your refrigerator

EN

Leave a space between the food items to allow the air to circulate freely and avoid different products contaminating each other.

Do not put packages and food in contact with the wall at the back of the appliance: this is a particularly cold and damp area of the appliance and water droplets and frost condense there as part of your refrigerator's normal operation.

"Cold Zone" symbols

The coldest area, indicated by the logo opposite, is designed for delicate, sensitive and highly perishable food: meat, poultry, fish, cooked meats, prepared dishes, ready-made salads, egg or cream-based dishes and pastries, fresh pasta, pastry, pizza/quiches, fresh produce and raw milk cheese, ready-to-use vegetables sold in plastic bags and, more generally, any fresh product whose consume-by date is linked to its storage at a temperature of +4°C or below.

Automatic defrosting

The refrigerator section of your appliance defrosts fully automatically. The water created by defrosting flows to a collection tank situated over the motor. The heat the motor releases evaporates the contents of this tank.

It is quite normal for droplets of water or frost to appear on the wall at the back of your refrigerator. This is a particularly cold and damp area in your appliance and water droplets and frost condense out as part of your appliance's normal operation. This frost is removed regularly during your refrigerator's automatic defrosting phases.

30

Ongoing maintenance of your appliance

EN

Disconnect your appliance prior to performing any maintenance operation. Grasp the plug directly, instead of pulling on the power cable.

Cleaning your appliance

We recommend that you clean and disinfect your appliance regularly for improved hygiene and to keep your food completely safe.

Remove all the food from the appliance. Place it in isothermic bags or wrap it in newspaper and store it in a cool place.

Clean your appliance inside and out with a bicarbonate of soda solution (1 dessertspoon of bicarbonate to 4 litres of water). Do not use alcohol, scouring powder or detergents, which could damage the surfaces.

Do not use a high-pressure steam cleaner. The very hot steam could damage the surfaces and the electrical circuits; you would expose yourself to a risk of electrocution.

Rinse with water, dry with a cloth.

Periodically check that the drain hole for the defrosting water is not blocked and clean it with a stick as shown in the Drawing.

Humidity filter

Under the vegetable tray's glass shelf, there is a filter, which controls the level of humidity, keeping it at the optimum level for preserving such foodstuffs.

To clean this filter: remove the top of the compartment, remove the lid and then remove the "K" filter and wash it under running water.

K

Changing the light bulb

Disconnect your appliance

- Unscrew the screw holding the interior light in place

- Remove the interior light and replace the bulb with another of the same type (15

WATTS max.). Refit the interior light and screw it in place.

Reconnect your appliance, and adjust the refrigerator's thermostat if necessary, as shown in the section on.

Wait 3 or 4 hours before placing the food back in your appliance.

31

Noises, inconveniences or minor breakdowns

EN

Normal operating noises

So that the selected temperature remains constant, your appliance regularly switches off its motor.

The resultant noises are quite normal operating noises. They reduce automatically as soon as your refrigerator reaches the desired temperature. These noises are as follows:

NOISE

Buzzing

CAUSE

Coming from the motor.This buzzing may briefly be louder when the motor starts.

Gargling or slight buzzing

Clicks

Slight background noise

Coming from circulation of the refrigerant in your refrigerator’s pipes.

These can always be heard when the thermostat turns the motor on or off.

If your appliance is fitted with a fan (depending on the model),the air circulating inside your appliance makes a slight background noise.

Inconveniences or minor breakdowns

Certain problems may appear when you are using your appliance. Before calling the after-sales service, use the guide below to see if you can resolve the problem yourself:

PROBLEM

Unusual noises

ADVICE

- check the adjustement of the feet of your appliance and its stability.

- check that it is not touching a wall.

- check that all the movable parts(trays,racks,etc..)are securely in place.

-check that the bottles or containers you have placed in your appliance are not touching each other.

The refrigerator does not get cold enough

Your appliance does not get cold at all

- ckeck that the thermostat is correctly set as indicated in the section on "Adjusting your refrigerator’s temperature".

- if you have put a large amount of food in your refrigerator at one time,ensure that you readjust the thermostat as shown in the section on "Adjusting your refrigerator’s temperature".

- be careful not to open your appliance’s door too often,and not to leave it open.

- ckeck that the thermostat is not in the (0) position.

- check that your appliance is connected to the electrical supply.

- check that the circuit-breaker for your house has not cut out and that the fuse has not blown or been unscrewed.

32

Noises, inconveniences or minor breakdowns

EN

PROBLEM

Frost forms inside your appliance

The external walls are warm

Drops of water appear on your appliance’s external wall

Droplets of water or ice forms on the appliance’s rear wall

Droplets stagnate at the back of the appliance

ADVICE

- be careful not to open your appliance’s door too often, and not to leave it open.

- this is quite normal. It stops condensation forming on the outside of your appliance.

- When your home’s heating is not on (for example in spring and autumn) and the ambient air is humid,some condensation may form on your appliance’s outside walls. This is not dangerous at all and your appliance continues to operate quite correctly.

- this is quite normal. This is a particularly cold and damp area of the appliance and droplets of water and frost can form here when your appliance is operating normally. This frost is regularly eliminated during your refrigerators automatic defrosting cycles.

- check that the drain hole is not blocked. If it is, release it with a stick or a metal wire as shown in the section in "Ongoing maintenance of your appliance".

The door is difficult to open

The light inside the refrigerator is out

- it is normal for the door to offer some resistance to being opened,particularly when you have just shut it: a slight underpressure forms in your appliance to ensure the door seals perfectly. All you have to do is wait a few seconds before re-opening.

- check that the thermostat is not in the

(0)

position.

- check that your appliance is connected to the electrical supply.

- check that the circuit-breaker for your house has not cut out and that the fuse has not blown or been unscrewed.

- check that the bulb has not burnt out, and refer to the section

"changing the light bulb".
