Wash the inside of the appliance with lukewarm water with a little bicarbonate of soda added (5ml to 0,5 litre of water). Do not use soap or detergent as the smell may linger. Dry the appliance thoroughly.
• When the refrigerator compartment door is opened, the internal lighting
is switched on. The temperature control knob is located on the right hand
side of the refrigerator compartment.
Setting “0”: Off.
Setting “1”: Hightest temperature, (warmest setting).
Setting “6” (end-stop) : Lowest temperature, (coldest setting).
The exact setting should be chosen keeping in mind that the temperature
inside the refrigerator depends on:
-the quantity of food stored
-how often the door is opened
The temperatures in the refrigerator compartment and freezer compartment cannot be independently regulated.
If you want to freeze fresh food rapidly, select setting “6”, ensuring that the
temperature in the refrigerator compartment does not drop below 0°C. You
should reset the temperature control knob to setting “3” or “4”, if this does
occur.
As soon as the fresh food placed in the freezer has frozen, return the temperature control knob to “3” or “4”.
Important!
High ambient temperatures (e.g. on hot summer days) and a cold setting on
the temperature regulator (position"5" to "6") can cause the compressor to
run continuously.
If this happens, turn the temperature
regulator back to a warmer setting
(position "3" to "4"). At this setting
the compressor will be switched on
and off as usual and automatic
defrosting recommenced.
Ambient Temperature switch
With a room temperature below
+16°C the Fridge freezer may not
function correctly. If the room temperature is lower than +16°C it will
be necessary to depress switch (A).
The relevant pilot light comes on.

Freezing and storing frozen food
You can use your freezer for freezing fresh food yourself.
Important!
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18 °C or colder
before freezing food.
• Please observe the freezing capacity given on the rating plate. The freezing capacity is the maximum quantity of fresh food that can be frozen
within a period of 24 hours. If you wish to freeze food several days in a
row, please observe a maximum capacity of only 2/3 to 3/4 of that on the
rating plate. The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen
right through to the core as quickly as possible.
• Allow warm food to cool down before freezing. The warmth will cause
increased ice formation and increase the power consumption.
• Please note the maximum storage times specified by the manufacturer.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into meals)
may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
• Containers with flammable gases or liquids can leak at low temperatures.
There is a risk of an explosion! Do not store any containers with flammable materials such as, for example, spray cans, fire extinguisher refill cartridges etc in the refrigerator/freezer.
• Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer. They can burst when
the contents freeze, high carbonate content drinks can even explode!
Never store lemonade, juices, beer, wine, sparkling wine etc. in the freezer.
• All foods must be packed air tight prior to freezing, so that they do not
dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of
other frozen goods occurs.
Important! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
stick to the food.

Ice pack
There is an ice pack in one drawer of the freezer.
In the event of a power failure or malfunction, the ice pack will lengthen
the amount of time it takes for the frozen food to become too warm by
several hours. The ice pack can only fulfil this task efficiently if it is placed
in the uppermost drawer, at the front, above the frozen food. You can use
the ice pack for cooling cold bags.
Preparation of Ice Cubes

2.
Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place it in the freezer compartment and leave to freeze.
To loosen the frozen cubes, either twist the ice cube tray or hold it under
running water for a few seconds.
Important! Never try to free an ice tray that is frozen to the freezer compartment using pointed or sharp edged objects. Use the ice scraper supplied.
Installation Location
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 on the inside left of the appliance.
The following table shows which ambient temperature is correct for each
climate classification.

Refrigerator
Frost is automatically removed from the evaporator of the refrigerator compartment every time the motor compressor stops, during normal use. The
defrost water drains out through a trough into a special container at the
back of the appliance, located over the motor compressor, where it evaporates.
Freezer
The freezer compartment, however, will become progressively covered with
frost. This should be removed with the special plastic scraper provided,
whenever the thickness of the frost exceeds 4 mm. During this operation it
is not necessary to switch off the power supply or to remove the foodstuffs.
However when the ice becomes very thick on the inner liner, complete
defrosting should be carried out as follows:
Remove the frozen food from the freezer, wrap it in several layers of newspaper and put it in a very cool place.
Switch off the appliance and pull out the plug, or turn the temperature
control knob to “0”.
Leave the freezer compartment door open.
Insert the plastic scraper into the
recess provided under the defrost
water channel and place a collecting
basin under it.
Once defrosting is completed keep
the scraper handy for future use;
Turn the thermostat knob to the
required setting or replace the plug
in the power socket.
Warning!
Never use metal tools to scrape off
the frost
Do not use a mechanical device or any artificial means to speed up the
thawing process other than those recommended by the manufacturer.
A temperature rise of the frozen food packs, during defrosting, may shorten their safe storage life.
