ATTENTION
Read your manual carefully since it contains instructions
which will ensure safe installation, use and maintenance of
your appliance.
Your Refrigerator is built to International safety standards
(EN60) and has been awarded the European approval mark
(IMQ) for compliance with UK electrical safety requirements.
It also meets the EC standards on the prevention and elimination of radio interference (EC directive 87/308 - 02.06.89).
1. This appliance must not be installed outdoors - not even
in an area protected by a roof. It is extremely dangerous to
leave it exposed to rain or storms.
2. It must only be used by adults and exclusively to refrigerate and freeze foodstuffs, following the instructions for use
contained in this manual.
3. Do not ever touch or handle the appliance with bare feet
or with wet hands or feet.
4. It is highly recommended that you do not use extension
cords or multiple socket adapters. If the refrigerator is installed between cabinets, make sure that the cord is not
bent or dangerously pinched or compressed.
5. Never pull on the cord or the refrigerator to remove the
plug from the wall socket - this is very dangerous.
6. Never touch the cooling components within the appliance, especially with wet hands because this could result in
injury. Never put ice cubes just removed from the freezer
into your mouth because they could stick to your mouth
and cause burns.
7. Never clean or perform maintenance on the appliance
without first removing the plug from the socket; in fact,
turning the knob for adjusting the temperature to the " "·
setting is not sufficient to eliminate all electrical contact with
the mains.
8. Before having your old refrigerator picked up for disposal,
remove or make inoperable any locking devices to prevent
children who might play in or around the appliance from
being locked inside.
9. Before calling for service/assistance in the case of malfunction, consult the chapter entitled “Is There a Problem?
to determine whether it is possible to eliminate the problem. do not try to repair the problem by trying to access the
internal components of the appliance.
10. If damaged, the power supply cord on this appliance
must necessarily be replaced by our service centre because
special tools are required for replacement.
11. Do not use electric appliances inside the compartment
for food storage, if these are not those recommended by
the manufacturer.
12. At the end of the functional life of your appliance –
containing cyclopentane gas in the insulation foam and
perhaps gas R600a (isobutane) in the refrigeration circuit –
the latter should made safe before being sent to the dump.
For this operation, please contact your dealer or the Local
Organisation in charge of waste disposal.
Installation
To ensure that the appliance operates properly and to
reduce energy consumption, it is important that the
appliance is installed correctly.
Ventilation
The compressor and condenser generate heat and, therefore, need to be ventilated properly. Rooms with less than
perfect ventilation are not very suited for installation of the
appliance. Therefore, it should be installed in a room with
an opening (window or French window) that provide the
appropriate amount of air re-circulation. It is also important
that the room not be too humid.
Away from Heat
Avoid positioning the appliance in a place where it is directly
exposed to sunlight or near an oven, cook top or the like.
Electrical Connection and Earthing
Before proceeding with the electrical connection, make sure
that the voltage indicated on the rating plate, located at the
bottom left near the vegetable crisper, corresponds to the
mains voltage in your home and that the socket is fitted
GB
3
with a standard earthing wire in accordance with safety
standards for 46/90 systems. If the socket is not fitted with
an earthing wire, the manufacturer will not be held liability
for any damages and or injuries arising out of the use of the
appliance. Do not use multiple sockets or adapters.
Position the appliance in such a way that you can access
the socket where it is plugged in.
Insufficient power?
The electrical socket must be able to handle the maximum
power load of the appliance, which is indicated on the rating plate located at the bottom left next to the vegetable
crisper.
Before making the electrical connection ...
After the appliance has been delivered, place it in the vertical upright position and wait at least 3 hours before inserting the plug into the socket in order to ensure that it functions properly.

How to Start the Appliance
NOTICE
After the appliance has been delivered, stand it in the
upright position and wait approximately 3 hours before connecting it to the electrical outlet to guarantee
that it operates properly.
Before storing food in your refrigerator wipe the interior with
a solution of warm water and bicarbonate of soda.
After having plugged the appliance into the socket, make
sure that the refrigerator light has turned on. Then turn the
thermostat knob “A” to setting “3”. After a few hours have
passed, you can place fresh food in the refrigerator compartment and frozen foods into the freezer.
How to use the refrigerator compartment...
The thermostat automatically regulates the temperature inside the appliance
1 = less cold
5 = colder
It is recommended that a medium setting be used.
To increase the amount of space, optimize arrangement and
improve appearance, this appliance has a “cooling area”
located within the back panel of the refrigerator compartment. When the appliance is operating, this panel may be
covered with frost or droplets of water depending on
whether the compressor is operating or not at a given time.
Do not be concerned about this! The refrigerator is operating normally.
If the thermostat knob is positioned on higher settings while
the refrigerator is heavily filled and the ambient temperature high, the appliance may run continuously, resulting in
the formation of frost on the back cooling area. This will
lead to an increase in energy consumption.
To avoid this situation, just turn the thermostat knob
to a lower setting so that the appliance defrosts automatically.

- Within the refrigerator compartment, the air circulates
naturally, with the colder air falling because it is heavier. This
is the reason why meat and cheeses should be placed above
the vegetable crisper.
- Please follow our instructions carefully on maximum storage time: any food, even the freshest, will not remain edible
for any extended amount of time.
- Contrary to popular belief, cooked foods do not store any
longer than raw food.
- Do not place liquids in containers without covering them
because this will lead to an increase in the level of moisture
within the refrigerator, causing the formation of frost.
- Be careful not to place containers (plastic or glass), food or
other objects in direct contact with the cooling area of the
back wall of the refrigerator. This could harm the food, increase energy consumption and facilitate the formation of
condensate (on food, containers, etc.).
- The refrigerator compartment is equipped with convenient, removable shelves (Fig. 1) which can be adjusted for
height using the shelf guides. This allows you to place even
large containers and foodstuffs in the refrigerator.
Fig. 1
Freezing Foods Properly
- In order to obtain a larger amount of space in the freezer
compartment, you can remove the central drawer, and place
the food directly onto the evaporator plate. Make sure that,
after having inserted the load, the door closes correctly.
- Do not open the freezer door in the event of a power
failure or malfunction. This precaution will slow the rise in
temperature within the compartment. If the door is not
opened, frozen and fast-frozen foods will remain in their
current state for approximately 9-14 hours.
- Do not place full bottles in the freezer: they could easily
burst because all liquids increase in volume when they freeze.
- If the ambient temperature remains below 14°C for an
extended period of time, the temperature needed for extended storage of food in the freezer will not be reached,
resulting in reduced storage life of the food.
- For the preparation of food to be frozen, please consult a specialized manual.
- Food that has be thawed, even partially, must not be refrozen: you must cook it in order to consume it (within 24
hours) or to freeze it once again.
- When freezing fresh foods, remember that they should
not touch other previously frozen or deep frozen foods. Place
the food that you wish to freeze in the top compartment
"H" where the temperature will fall below -18°C, which is
ideal for freezing food properly. Remember that proper conservation depends on the speed of freezing.
- During the freezing process, avoid opening the door of the
freezer.
- The maximum daily quantity of food that can be frozen is
indicated on the rating plate located to the left of the vegetable crisper.
- In order to freeze and then thaw foods optimally, it is recommended that you divide food into small portions so that
they freeze quickly and uniformly. The packages should be
clearly marked with the content and the date they were
frozen.

Tips on Saving Energy
- Install the Appliance Properly
In other words, away from sources of heat and direct sunlight, in a well ventilated room complying with the minimum distances indicated in the paragraph entitled, “ Installation/Ventilation.”.
- Close the Doors
Open your refrigerator as little as possible because each time
you do so you loose much of the cold air. To raise the temperature to the proper level again, the motor must work for
a long time, consuming energy.
THE ACTUAL ENERGY CONSUMPTION OF THE
APPLIANCE DEPENDS ON THE WAY THE SAME IS USED
AND ON ITS LOCATION.
The consumption tests were performed in 560mm deep
column units, the most common installation setting for this
appliance.
- Keep an Eye on the Seals
Keep the seals clean and make sure that they adhere well to
the door. This alone will ensure that no cold air escapes.
- Use the Right Temperature Setting
A setting which is too cold increases energy consumption.
- No Hot Foods
A hot pot or pan placed in the refrigerator immediately raises
the temperature several degrees. Let hot cookware and food
cool to ambient temperature before placing them in the refrigerator.
- Do not Overfill
To conserve food properly, the cold air must circulate freely
within the refrigerator. If it is overfilled, this will prevent proper
air circulation, forcing the compressor to work continuously.
- Defrost the Freezer
Check the thickness of the frost on the walls of the freezer
and immediately defrost it if the layer of frost is too thick.
(see the section entitled, “Keeping your Appliance in Shape”).
Keeping Your Appliance in Shape
Before doing any cleaning, disconnect the appliance
from the electricity (by pulling out the plug or turning
off the general switch in your home).
Defrosting
WARNING: do not damage the refrigeration circuit.
Do not use mechanical devices or other tools to speed
up the defrosting process, unless they have been recommended by the manufacturer.
How to Defrost the Refrigerator
This appliance defrosts automatically and the water is
channeled to the back toward the drain installed for this
purpose (fig. 2). Here, the heat produced by the compressor
will make it evaporate. The only thing you must do is to
periodically check and clean the hole of the drain, which is
located behind the vegetable crispers, so that the water
drains properly.
How to Defrost the Freezer
- Every so often, remove the frost with the scraper provided
with the appliance (do not use knives or metal objects).
- If the frost is more than 15 mm thick, the freezer must be
defrosted.
Proceed as follows: turn the thermostat knob "A" to the ·
setting " ". Then wrap all the frozen and fast-frozen food
in newspaper, placing it either in the refrigerator or in a cool
place. Leave the freezer door open so that the frost thaws
completely. You can speed this process by placing containers of warm water in the compartment.
The unit is provided with a system which allows the defrost
water to be collected in a container to be placed beneath
the unit (proceed as illustrated in fig. 3).

Cleaning and Special Maintenance
Before cleaning the refrigerator, disconnect it from the
electrical mains (by removing the plug from the socket
or by turning off the main electricity switch for the
apartment or house).
- The materials used to build your appliance are hygienic
and do not transmit odors. However, to preserve this quality
of your appliance, the food stored in it must be well closed
and covered to prevent spills which could stain it and cause
unpleasant odors.
- Only water and baking soda. To clean both the interior and
exterior, use a sponge with warm water and baking soda,
which is, among other things, a good disinfectant. If you do
not have any in the house, you can use a neutral soap.
- What not to use. Never use abrasives, bleach or ammonia.
Solvents and similar products are strictly prohibited.
- All the removable part should be taken out and allowed to
soak in hot water and dishwashing soap. Rinse and dry them
well before putting them back in the refrigerator.
- When the appliance is not used for a long time. If you
decide not to use the appliance (during the summer), it must
cleaned and the doors left open to prevent the formation of
mold and unpleasant odors.
- Replacing the light bulb. The bulb for lighting the interior
of the appliance is located at the back of the thermostat
box. Unscrew the burnt bulb and replace it with another
bulb of no more than 15 Watt, follow the instructions
illustrated in fig. 4.
