OPERATION
Before using
Remove all securing tapes. Wash inside the
appliance with lukewarm water and bicarbonate of
soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water).
Do not use soap or detergent as the smell may
linger. Dry thoroughly.
Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the refrigerator is regulated
by a thermostat with 6 temperature positions and
one «OFF» (O) position.
Position 1 = minimum coldness
A
D710
A - Low Room Temperature Switch
Position 6 = maximum coldness
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
The intermediate position is usually the most
suitable (3-4).
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the
following factors:
– room temperature
– how often the door is opened
– how much food is stored
– position of the appliance
Important
During prolonged periods of abnormally hot weather,
if the thermostat is set on too high a number, the
cooling system may operate continuously and the
fridge cooling plate may not defrost. Turning the knob
to a lower number will cause the automatic
defrosting to resume.
Low Room Temperature Switch
When the room temperature is + 16° C or less, the
Low Room Temperature Switch, located next to the
thermostat control knob, must be switched on to
maintain the correct temperatures inside the fridge
and freezer compartments.
Please note that in this setting the interior light will
remain on, even if the door is closed.
No damage can be caused by leaving the switch in
this position for any period of time (see page 10 Low
ambient operation). However should the temperature
rise above 16°C remember to turn the switch off
again.
The freezer compartment
The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for
storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing
fresh foods.
Freezing fresh food
It is not necessary to adjust the thermostat setting
when freezing fresh food. Depress the ambient
switch at least 24 hours before loading food to be
frozen.
In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 6 kg. of fresh
food.
Place food to be frozen in the bottom drawer of the
freezer as this is the coldest part.
Important
In the event of a power cut, do not open the door.
The food in the freezer will not be affected if the
power cut is short and if the freezer is full. Should the
food begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and
must not be re-frozen (see Hints&Tips).
Frozen food storage
When first starting-up or after a period of non use,
before putting the products in the compartment let
the appliance run for at least two hours on the
coldest setting, then turn the thermostat knob to the
normal opertion position.
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the
manufacturer.
Finally, do not open the door frequently or leave it
open longer than is absolutely necessary.

Thawing
6. Remove the freezer door by releasing it from the
middle hinge (H).
Frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in
the fridge or at room temperature depending on the
time available. Small food items may even be cooked
from frozen; in this case cooking will take longer.
7. Unscrew the middle hinge.
H
8. Slide out the fridge door from pin (G), unscrew
the latter and then screw it down into the hinge
provided on the opposite side, after having
removed the small plugs (I) which should then be
fitted on the opposite side.
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and
then refrozen.
9. Refit the fridge door and replace the middle hinge
to the left hand side.
10.Replace the door and bottom hinge (1) on the
opposite side.
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
11.Refit the feet (2-3) on the opposite side.
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
flavour.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & poultry or chicken):
wrap in polythene bags and place on top of the salad
crispers.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad crispers.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
Attention
G
After completion of the door reversing operation,
check that the door gasket adheres to the cabinet. If
the ambient temperature is cold (i.e. in Winter), the
gasket may not fit perfectly to the cabinet. In that
case, wait for the natural fitting of the gasket or
accelerate this process by heating up the part
involved with a normal hairdryer on a low setting.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the
oven instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in
the oven.
Defrosted cooked food must never be
refrozen.
Ice cube tray holder
The holder is designed to hold the two ice cube trays
supplied and it is recommended that these are used.
The holder can be located onto the front of any of
the baskets.
To make ice cubes:
D419
Fill the trays 3/4 full to allow the ice to expand and
place in the ice cube tray holder.
To turn out the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight
twist to release the cubes.

It should be located in a dry atmosphere, out of direct
sunlight and away from extreme temperature e.g. not
next to a boiler or radiator, or in a very cold room e.g. an
outhouse, where the temperatures may fall below 10°C
(50°F). If these temperatures are exceeded i.e. colder or
warmer, then the appliance may not operate correctly.

Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
appliance are not obstructed.
•
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you
will hear a faint ’click’ when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
•
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages
before placing them in the freezer.
•
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge.
•
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should be
placed in the fridge before being transferred to
the freezer.
•
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will ensure
safer defrosting of foods and reduce the work of
the refrigeration unit.
•
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the
door from closing properly.
NP00
You should also ensure that air can circulate freely
around the back and the top of the cabinet. There must
also be at least 100 mm (4”) distance between the top of
the cabinet and any overhanging kitchen furniture (A).
Ideally, the appliance should not be positioned beneath
overhanging furniture (B).
There should also be a gap of 25 mm either side of the
appliance. Do not obstruct the space underneath. The
back of the cabinet may be placed close to the wall but
must not touch it. DO NOT install in places with
restricted ventilation.
•
Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.
•
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it
straight away. The use of an insulated container is
advisable. When you arrive home place the frozen
food in the freezer immediately.
•
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your refrigerator as short as possible.
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
•
•
Do not store food uncovered.
•
Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated
and labelled and used in date order to ensure
that food is consumed at its best.
In the Event of a Power Failure
•
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean, refer to Maintenance and Cleaning.
•
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food,
salt reduces the storage time.
•
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal .
•
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of
refrozen water droplets on the pack could indicate
that the product has not been kept at a suitable
temperature and that it may have lost its original
quality. Partially thawed food must not be
refrozen, it must be consumed within 24 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated by the
manufacturer.

Positioning
This appliance should only be installed at a location
where the ambient temperature corresponds to the
climate classification indicated on the rating plate, which
is located at the left on the inside of the appliance.
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils
or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator.
If there is a power failure during the storage of frozen
foods, keep the door closed. If the temperature within
your freezer should rise, do not refreeze the food
without checking its condition. The following
guidelines should assist you:
Ice-cream: Once thawed should be discarded.
Fruits & Vegetables: If soft should be cooked and
used up.
Breads & Cakes: Can be refrozen without danger.
Shellfish: Should be refrigerated and used up
quickly.
Cooked Dishes: i. e. casseroles should be
refrigerated and used up.
Large Pieces of Meat: Can be refrozen providing
there are still ice crystals remaining within them.
Small Joints: Should be cooked and can then be
refrozen as cooked dishes.
Chicken: Should also be cooked and refrozen as a
fresh dish.
The numbers indicate storage times in months for
the appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether
the upper or lower value of the indicated storage
time is valid depends on the quality of the foods
and pre-treating before freezing.

It should be located in a dry atmosphere, out of direct
sunlight and away from extreme temperature e.g. not
next to a boiler or radiator, or in a very cold room e.g. an
outhouse, where the temperatures may fall below 10°C
(50°F). If these temperatures are exceeded i.e. colder or
warmer, then the appliance may not operate correctly.
A
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
appliance are not obstructed.
•
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you
will hear a faint ’click’ when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
•
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages
before placing them in the freezer.
•
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge.
•
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should be
placed in the fridge before being transferred to
the freezer.
•
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will ensure
safer defrosting of foods and reduce the work of
the refrigeration unit.
•
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the
door from closing properly.
NP00
You should also ensure that air can circulate freely
around the back and the top of the cabinet. There must
also be at least 100 mm (4”) distance between the top of
the cabinet and any overhanging kitchen furniture (A).
Ideally, the appliance should not be positioned beneath
overhanging furniture (B).
There should also be a gap of 25 mm either side of the
appliance. Do not obstruct the space underneath. The
back of the cabinet may be placed close to the wall but
must not touch it. DO NOT install in places with
restricted ventilation.
•
Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.
•
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it
straight away. The use of an insulated container is
advisable. When you arrive home place the frozen
food in the freezer immediately.
•
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your refrigerator as short as possible.
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
•
•
Do not store food uncovered.
•
Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated
and labelled and used in date order to ensure
that food is consumed at its best.
In the Event of a Power Failure
•
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean, refer to Maintenance and Cleaning.
•
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food,
salt reduces the storage time.
•
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal .
•
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of
refrozen water droplets on the pack could indicate
that the product has not been kept at a suitable
temperature and that it may have lost its original
quality. Partially thawed food must not be
refrozen, it must be consumed within 24 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated by the
manufacturer.

Food Storage
The following table shows which ambient temperature is
correct for each climate classification:
Energy Saving Advice
•
Positioning
This appliance should only be installed at a location
where the ambient temperature corresponds to the
climate classification indicated on the rating plate, which
is located at the left on the inside of the appliance.
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils
or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator.
If there is a power failure during the storage of frozen
foods, keep the door closed. If the temperature within
your freezer should rise, do not refreeze the food
without checking its condition. The following
guidelines should assist you:
Ice-cream: Once thawed should be discarded.
Fruits & Vegetables: If soft should be cooked and
used up.
Breads & Cakes: Can be refrozen without danger.
Shellfish: Should be refrigerated and used up
quickly.
Cooked Dishes: i. e. casseroles should be
refrigerated and used up.
Large Pieces of Meat: Can be refrozen providing
there are still ice crystals remaining within them.
Small Joints: Should be cooked and can then be
refrozen as cooked dishes.
Chicken: Should also be cooked and refrozen as a
fresh dish.
The numbers indicate storage times in months for
the appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether
the upper or lower value of the indicated storage
time is valid depends on the quality of the foods
and pre-treating before freezing.

flavour.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & poultry or chicken):
wrap in polythene bags and place on top of the salad
crispers.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad crispers.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
Attention
G
After completion of the door reversing operation,
check that the door gasket adheres to the cabinet. If
the ambient temperature is cold (i.e. in Winter), the
gasket may not fit perfectly to the cabinet. In that
case, wait for the natural fitting of the gasket or
accelerate this process by heating up the part
involved with a normal hairdryer on a low setting.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the
oven instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in
the oven.
Defrosted cooked food must never be
refrozen.

OPERATION
Before using
Remove all securing tapes. Wash inside the
appliance with lukewarm water and bicarbonate of
soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water).
Do not use soap or detergent as the smell may
linger. Dry thoroughly.
Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the refrigerator is regulated
by a thermostat with 6 temperature positions and
one «OFF» (O) position.
Position 1 = minimum coldness
A
D710
A - Low Room Temperature Switch
Position 6 = maximum coldness
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
The intermediate position is usually the most
suitable (3-4).
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the
following factors:
– room temperature
– how often the door is opened
– how much food is stored
– position of the appliance
Important
During prolonged periods of abnormally hot weather,
if the thermostat is set on too high a number, the
cooling system may operate continuously and the
fridge cooling plate may not defrost. Turning the knob
to a lower number will cause the automatic
defrosting to resume.
Low Room Temperature Switch
When the room temperature is + 16° C or less, the
Low Room Temperature Switch, located next to the
thermostat control knob, must be switched on to
maintain the correct temperatures inside the fridge
and freezer compartments.
Please note that in this setting the interior light will
remain on, even if the door is closed.
No damage can be caused by leaving the switch in
this position for any period of time (see page 10 Low
ambient operation). However should the temperature
rise above 16°C remember to turn the switch off
again.
The freezer compartment
The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for
storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing
fresh foods.
Freezing fresh food
It is not necessary to adjust the thermostat setting
when freezing fresh food. Depress the ambient
switch at least 24 hours before loading food to be
frozen.
In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 6 kg. of fresh
food.
Place food to be frozen in the bottom drawer of the
freezer as this is the coldest part.
Important
In the event of a power cut, do not open the door.
The food in the freezer will not be affected if the
power cut is short and if the freezer is full. Should the
food begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and
must not be re-frozen (see Hints&Tips).
Frozen food storage
When first starting-up or after a period of non use,
before putting the products in the compartment let
the appliance run for at least two hours on the
coldest setting, then turn the thermostat knob to the
normal opertion position.
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the
manufacturer.
Finally, do not open the door frequently or leave it
open longer than is absolutely necessary.
