Start-up and use
Starting the appliance
! 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.
! The appliance comes with a motor protection control
system which makes the compressor start
approximately 8 minutes after being switched on. The
compressor also starts each time the power supply is
cut off whether voluntarily or involuntarily (blackout).
Once you have plugged the appliance into the mains
socket, make sure the display is on (the FREEZER
COMPARTMENT knob must not be on Off).
Freezer compartment
When you turn the appliance on (by turning the
FREEZER and APPLIANCE ON/OFF Knob to the
required freezer compartment operating temperature),
we recommend you enable the SUPER FREEZE
function to speed up the cooling process inside the
compartment; when the latter has reached the optimal
temperature, the function will be disabled and you
may place the frozen foods inside the freezer.
Refrigerator compartment
When you turn the refrigerator compartment on (by
turning REFRIGERATOR OPERATION Knob to the
required refrigerator compartment operating
temperature), we recommend you enable the SUPER
COOL function to speed up the cooling process inside
the compartment: after a few hours, you may place
food inside the refrigerator.
The blown air (A) is cooled when it comes into contact
with the cold wall, whereas the hotter air (B) is sucked
up (see diagram).
The Pure Wind Plus products are also equipped with a
filter which, thanks to the inclusion of silver ions,
makes it possible to reduce bacteria by 70% and to
eliminate odours inside the refrigerator unit, thereby
guaranteeing improved food storage.
The back wall may be covered in frost or droplets of
water, depending on whether the compressor is in
operation or whether it is paused.
SHELVES: with or without grill.
Due to the special guides the
shelves are removable and the
height is adjustable (see
diagram), allowing easy
storage of large containers
and food. Height can be
adjusted without complete
removal of the shelf.
MULTI-USE bin: to store food
(such as cold meats) for a long
time and also prevent odours
from lingering in the
refrigerator. It can be removed
for use and it may be shifted
sideways to optimise space
(see diagram).
PURE WIND PLUS
It is recognizable due to the presence of the
mechanism on the top part of the refrigerator
compartment (see diagram).

Using the display
Setting the temperature
If the compartment concerned is switched off, the word
OFF will appear on the relative indication space on the
display (REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT setting and
FREEZER COMPARTMENT setting). If the compartment
is switched on, then the temperatures set at that time will
appear. To change them, turn the relative knob directly
(REFRIGERATOR OPERATION Knob and FREEZER
OPERATION and APPLIANCE ON/OFF Knob).
The refrigerator compartment can be set to between
+2°C and +8°C, while the freezer compartment can
be set to a temperature of between -18°C and -26°C.
The temperature in both cases can be increased or
decreased by 1°C at a time.
When the HOLIDAY function is enabled, temperature
regulations cannot be made, but the appliance
automatically sets itself to the best setting for the
situation: +12°C for the refrigerator compartment (if
enabled) and -18°C for the freezer compartment.
Function status
! The SUPER FREEZE function features a double
mode of operation (see paragraph on operating the
freezer compartment).
Enabling/disabling the DEMO mode:
To run a demonstration of the display operation while
keeping the appliance turned off, just enable the
DEMO mode.
Enabling:
- set the FREEZER OPERATION and APPLIANCE ON/
OFF Knob to 0ff;
- keep the two buttons “Select” and “Mode” pressed
for approximately 5 seconds, until you hear the buzzer
and the two words “OFF” and “OFF” flash on the
display; these words will flash for the entire duration
the DEMO mode is enabled.
Disabling:
- set the FREEZER OPERATION and APPLIANCE ON/
OFF Knob to 0ff;
- keep the two buttons “Select” and “Mode” pressed
for approximately 5 seconds, until you hear the buzzer
and the two words “OFF” and “OFF” on the display
stop flashing.

Enabling/disabling the functions
Press the MODE button as many times as necessary
for the red outline of the function you wish to act on to
light up: this indicates that the function has been
selected and is ready to be enabled or disabled. Now
you can enable or disable the selected function using
the SELECT button.
! If you do not confirm your selection by pressing the
SELECT button within five seconds of the last action
performed on the display, the latter shall go back to
displaying the function previously set and indicate that
no new modification has been made.
The SUPER COOL function is linked to the refrigerator
compartment and when the latter is switched off, no
action whatsoever will be possible on the former, other
functions foresee an operation that can create conflicts
(for example, when the HOLIDAY and SUPER FREEZE
functions are enabled simultaneously), in this case a
pre-set priority is taken into consideration in order to
help you operate the appliance.
6
To minimise energy usage when on holiday, it is not
necessary to switch the appliance off. The appliance
has a function which allows it to maintain the
temperature of the refrigerator compartment at
approximately 15°C (which can also be used to
conserve make-up and beauty products). The freezer
temperature must be set to the minimum value in order
to preserve the food.
Using the refrigerator to its full potential
• Use the REFRIGERATOR OPERATION knob to
adjust the temperature (see Description).
• Activate the SUPER COOL function to lower the
temperature quickly. For example, when you place a
large number of new food items inside a fridge, the
internal temperature will rise slightly. The function
quickly cools the groceries by temporarily reducing
the temperature until it reaches the ideal level.
• Place only cold or lukewarm foods in the compartment,
not hot foods (see Precautions and tips).
• Remember that cooked foods do not last longer than
raw foods.
• Do not store liquids in open containers. They will
increase humidity in the refrigerator and cause
condensation to form.
Using the freezer to its full potential
• Use the FREEZER OPERATION and APPLIANCE
ON/OFF Knob to adjust the temperature (see
Description).
• Do not re-freeze food that is defrosting or that has
already been defrosted. These foods must be
cooked and eaten (within 24 hours).
• Fresh food that needs to be frozen must not come
into contact with food that has already been
defrosted. Fresh food must be stored in the top
FREEZER and STORAGE compartment where the
temperature drops below -18°C and guarantees
rapid freezing.
! 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 9 -14 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: Kg/24h: 4).
• To freeze (if the freezer is already operating):
- For small quantities, less than the maximum capacity
indicated on the data plate (situated on the lower left,
next to the salad crisper), enable the SUPER FREEZE
function on the display in the "24 hour" mode and
insert the food to be frozen. To enable the function,
press the MODE button as many times as necessary
for the SUPER FREEZE symbol to start flashing and
then press the SELECT button to enable the SUPER
FREEZE function. After 24 hours, or once the optimal
temperatures have been reached, the rapid freezing
function is automatically disabled.
- For large quantities of food to be frozen (up until the
maximum load indicated on the data plate situated on
the lower left, next to the salad crisper), enable the
SUPER FREEZE function on the display in the "48
hours" mode: To enable the function, press the MODE
button as many times as necessary for the SUPER
FREEZE symbol to start flashing and then press the
SELECT button for more than three seconds to ensure
the function is enabled (symbol SUPER FREEZE
function starts to flash slowly). After 24 hours, the
function symbol will stop flashing and go back to
being permanently lit; you can now insert the food to
be frozen. After another 24 hours, the function will be
disabled automatically.

ICE trays.
The Easy Ice trays are set into the top part of the
freezer drawers to maximise the space within the
freezer. The trays are drip-free and sealed to prevent
food from tainting the ice cubes.
1. Check that the tray is completely empty and fill it
with water through the opening provided.
2. Take care not to exceed the level indicated (MAX
WATER LEVEL). Excess water prevents the ice
cubes from dispensing (if this happens, wait for the
ice to melt and empty the tray).
3. Turn the tray 90°: due to the connected
compartments each mould fills with water (see
diagram).
4. Close the opening with the lid provided and put the
tray back, placing the top part in the corresponding
housing and allowing it to drop in again.
5. When the ice has formed (minimum time
approximately 8 hours) knock the tray against a hard
surface and wet the outside so that the ice cubes
come loose and take them out through the opening.

PURE WIND PLUS
Filter maintenance
Unhook the filters from the left side of the cover by
inserting the tip of a small screwdriver into the gaps
(see attached pictures).
Wash the filters regularly (every 12-18 months) under
running water, using a neutral detergent to remove
any stubborn build-up. Leave the filters to dry before
replacing them. If the filters cannot be removed, or if
they are difficult to remove, please contact the
Technical Assistance Service.
! Follow the instructions below.
Do not use objects with sharp or pointed edges to
defrost the appliance as these may damage the
refrigeration circuit beyond repair.
Defrosting the refrigerator compartment
The refrigerator has an automatic defrosting function:
water is ducted to the back of the appliance by a
special discharge outlet
(see diagram) where the
heat produced by the
compressor causes it to
evaporate. It is
necessary to clean the
discharge hole regularly
so that the water can
flow out easily.

Precautions and tips
GB
! The appliance was designed and manufactured in
compliance with international safety standards. The
following warnings are provided for safety reasons and
must be read carefully.
This appliance complies with the following
Community Directives:
- 73/23/EEC of 19/02/73 (Low Voltage) and
subsequent amendments;
-89/336/EEC of 03.05.89 (Electromagnetic
Compatibility) and subsequent amendments;
- 2002/96/CE..
• Do not use electrical appliances inside the food
storage compartments of the appliance, unless
they are of the type recommended by the
manufacturer.
• Do not put ice cubes taken directly from the freezer
into your mouth.
• Do not allow children to tamper with the controls or
play with the appliance. Under no circumstance
should they be allowed to sit on the bins or to hang
from the door.
• Keep packaging material out of the reach of children!
It can become a choking or suffocation hazard.
General safety
• The appliance was designed for domestic use inside
the home and is not intended for commercial or
industrial use.
• This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory
or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given supervision
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.
• The appliance must not be installed outdoors, even in
covered areas. It is extremely dangerous to leave the
appliance exposed to rain and storms.
• Do not touch the appliance with bare feet or with wet
or moist hands and feet.
• Do not touch the internal cooling elements: this could
cause skin abrasions or frost/freezer burns.
Disposal
• Observe local environmental standards when
disposing packaging material for recycling
purposes.
• Consumers should contact their local authority or
retailer for information concerning the correct
disposal of their old appliance.
Respecting and conserving the
environment
• 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.
• When unplugging the appliance always pull the plug
from the mains socket, do not pull on the cable.
• 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.
• Before cleaning and maintenance, always switch off the
appliance and disconnect it from the electrical supply. It
is not sufficient to set the temperature adjustment knobs
on OFF (appliance off) to eliminate all electrical contact.
• 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.
• In the case of a malfunction, under no circumstances
should you attempt to repair the appliance yourself.
Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may
cause injury or further malfunctioning of the
appliance.
• 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.
• Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.
• Do not use any sharp or pointed utensils or electrical
equipment - other than the type recommended by the
manufacturer - inside the frozen food storage
compartments.
10
• Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to
ensure they are free of debris and to prevent cold
air from escaping (see Maintenance).
