BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE FOR THE FIRST TIME

English

- 2 -

It is very important that you keep this user manual with the
appliance for future consultation. Should you sell the
appliance, be sure to give the buyer the user manual too,
so that he can read the documentation relating to applian-
ce operation and the various warnings.
These warnings are provided for your safety: we therefore
advise you to read them carefully before installing or using
the appliance.

• To avoid injury to persons or animals or damage to property,

the appliance should be unpacked and manoeuvred into its
installation position by two people. If the appliance is trans-
ported in a horizontal position, the oil contained in the com-
pressor may flow into the refrigerant circuit. We therefore
advise you leave the appliance standing in an upright position
for at least 2 hours before connecting to the power supply, in
order to allow the oil to flow back into the compressor.

• Before installation, check that the appliance is not damaged

in any way. In the event of damage, contact
your dealer. Never attempt to repair the
appliance yourself. Any repairs carried out by

unauthorized persons can damage the appliance and ren-
der the warranty null and void. Contact your nearest After-
sales Service for repairs and insist on original spare parts.

• In order to protect finished surfaces, the sides and doors of
the appliance may have a transparent protective film, ensu-
ring it reaches you in pristine condition, free from scratches
and marks; remove this film before installing the appliance; to
remove the film, peel it off with your hands, without using
tools. The film is made of recyclable plastic and should be
disposed of accordingly.

• This appliance contains ISOBUTANE (R600a). In any case,
the label affixed to the compressor and the data plate inside
the appliance both specify the type of refrigerant used. Great
care must be taken during transport and installation in order

to ensure that the appliance is handled carefully, without jer-
king or bumping it.

WARNING: Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.
Failure to observe these procedures could result in

irreparable damage to the appliance; 

furthermore, in the

presence of R600a, any damage to the refrigerant circuit

could produce a risk of explosion caused by external

sparks or flames. Do not, under any circumstances

,

switch on the appliance if it appears to be damaged.

In the event of damage, contact the After-

sales Service, air the room in which the

appliance is installed, avoid flames and do not interfere

with the appliance yourself.

WARNING: to avoid risks arising from an unstable
appliance, ensure the appliance is positioned or

secured in place as specified in the user manual.

• After the product has been installed, check that it is not
resting on the power supply cable and that the power

plug is easily accessible once inserted into
the socket.
WARNING: if the power supply cable is

damaged, have it replaced with another cable or assembly
available from the manufacturer or the After-sales Service.

This appliance is designed to be used by adults

only. It is exclusively for domestic use, specifically for storing
and/or freezing food.  Take care, therefore, to ensure that
children do not attempt to play with the appliance, sit on the

• A certain degree of frost build-up is unavoidable in any refri-

gerator. Depending on the model, this frost is either elimi-
nated automatically (automatic defrosting), or manually, as
required.

• 

WARNING: 

do not use electrical appliances insi-

de the freezer compartments.

• 

Do not, under any circumstances, place hot foods or
liquids in the freezer, and do not fill containers to the brim.

• /

The refrigerant circuit and insulation of this applian
ce do not contain gases that are harmful to the

ozone layer or that exacerbate the greenhouse effect; non-
etheless, disposal of the appliance must be carried out
responsibly and in compliance with current regulations for
the safeguarding of the environment.

WARNING: 

do not use mechanical devices or any

means other than those recommended by the

manufacturer to speed up the defrosting process. Never
attempt to remove frost or ice with sharp instruments, since
you may seriously damage the evaporator and compromise
the efficiency of the appliance. Allow frost to melt naturally.

• Never use the plinth, drawers, door, etc. of the appliance as

platforms or supports.

• Never place carbonated drinks or bottles of water in the low

temperature (freezer)compartment: risk of exploding.

• WARNING: in the event of contact with the eyes, the refri-

gerant liquid can cause serious injury. Should the refrige-
rant liquid come into contact with the eyes, rinse immedia-
tely under running water and immediately seek medical
advice from an eye specialist.

• It is dangerous to alter or attempt to alter the characteristics

of your appliance.

Packaging

WARNING: The packaging materials (plastic bags,

film, polystyrene) are potentially dangerous for children (risk

INSTALLATION

Positioning

The appliance must be installed on a horizontal, stable sur-
face; use the adjustable feet to ensure the appliance is
level. Keeping the appliance raised off the floor ensures
good circulation of air around the condenser.
This will guarantee optimum operation of the refrigerant circuit.

Ideally, the appliance should be installed in a cool, dry, well-
ventilated place. Ensure the appliance is positioned away
from sources of heat such as heaters or radiators, and avoid
direct exposure to sunlight. Do not place other heat-produ-
cing household appliances (microwave ovens, toasters,
etc.) on top of the appliance.

Every appliance series is identified by a “climatic class”,
which indicates the temperature range within which the
appliance may operate.
The climatic class of your appliance is indicated on the
data plate.

Climatic class:

Ambient temperature:

SN

from +10°C to +32°C

N

from +16°C to +32°C

ST

from +18°C to +38°C

T

from +18°C to +43°C

Outside the ambient temperature range stated for
your appliance's climatic class, adequate storage

conditions for food may not be guaranteed; consequently, in
the event the ambient temperature strays outside the stated
range, it is advisable to use up food as quickly as possible.
Appliances are designed for indoor use and must not be
exposed to rain. Sufficient space must be provided for ven-
tilation at the top (at least 100 mm) and at the back (at least
50 mm) of the appliance, otherwise appliance performance
may become unreliable. When the appliance is fitted with a
rear condenser, the accessories supplied as standard with
the appliance include two spacers, to be fitted to the con-
denser as illustrated in the diagram in order to ensure a
minimum distance of 50mm from the wall.

Cleaning the interior before use

Before using the appliance, clean all the interior

and accessories using warm water and neutral soap, vine-
gar or bicarbonate of soda in order to remove the typical
new smell, then dry thoroughly. Do not use detergents
and/or abrasive cleaning powders with soda, or solvents,
since these could damage the finish. 
After unpacking the appliance:
a) Fit the handles, following the instructions in paragraph

“INVERTING THE DOORS AND FITTING THE HANDLES”.

b) Carefully remove all adhesive tape and papers from the

cabinet and door.

c) Remove any polystyrene parts from around the

compressor.

d) Remove all documents and accessories supplied from

the interior.

Electrical connection

Before plugging in the appliance, check that the voltage and
mains frequency indicated on the appliance data plate cor-
respond to the domestic power supply.
A margin of-6% to +6% with respect to the rated voltage is
permitted. For appliance operation in the presence of diffe-
rent voltages, a suitable autotransformer must be used.
The appliance must not be connected to inverters (for
example to a solar panel system) and must not be connec-
ted using an extension lead.

Regulations require that the appliance be

suitably earthed.

To this end, if the domestic power socket is not earthed,
connect the appliance to a separate, efficient earth
system in compliance with current standards, consulting a
qualified technician. The manufacturer declines all liability
in the event of non-observance of this health and safety
regulation.
This appliance conforms to the following European
standards:
Low Voltage Directive 73/23/EEC
Directive 93/68/EEC

Before cleaning the appliance, unplug it from the
mains. Clean the exterior of the appliance from time

to time using a furniture detergent or polish with similar cha-
racteristics (which must never be used to clean the interior of
the appliance). Clean the door seals from time to time with
hot water only, without the use of detergents; do not treat the
door seals with oil or grease.

Clean the inside of the appliance regularly:
- Clean the refrigerator compartment at least once a month,

and the freezer compartment whenever you defrost it.

- Remove all food from the refrigerator and freezer and store

them in a cool place.

- No part of the appliance, including accessories, is dishwas-

her-safe. Wash the interior and accessories with hot water
and a little detergent. Do not use concentrated detergents
containing acidic substances or chemical solvents. We advi-
se you use a mild all-purpose detergent with a neutral pH.

- After cleaning, rinse the interior and the accessories with

clear water and dry thoroughly. Allow to dry in the fresh air
for 3-4 minutes.

- Do not damage or remove the data plate positioned inside

the appliance: it is very important for the after-sales service
and for future scrapping.

-               Take care that no water comes into contact with

electrical parts inside the appliance.

- Periodically remove any dust and dirt from the heat exchan-

ger at the rear of the appliance. Dust interferes with the
appliance's cooling capacity and significantly increases
energy consumption. The best way to remove dust from the
heat exchanger is to use a soft brush or a feather duster.
Take care when cleaning the metal fins of the condenser:
they may be very sharp.

- Make sure that condensation drains away freely along the

drain channels. From time to time, clean the defrost water
drain outlet with the help of a cotton wool bud or similar tool.

- Do not attempt to drain away the water used for cleaning

the appliance through the defrost water drain outlet; the
collection basin would overflow and the water would spill
onto the floor.

Prolonged disuse

- In the event of prolonged disuse, empty the appliance com-

pletely, unplug it from the mains and clean it thoroughly.
Leave the doors open to prevent formation of mould and
unpleasant odours. 

When the appliance is switched back on after a

prolonged period of disuse, allow it to operate

for 2-3 hours with the thermostat at the highest setting

(coldest) before placing any food in the compartments.

PERIODIC CLEANING OF THE APPLIANCE

PRACTICAL TIPS FOR FOOD STORAGE

Refrigerating food and drinks

The natural circulation of cold air inside the refrigerator
compartment creates a number of different temperature
zones, particularly suitable for storing various foods; it is
therefore important to arrange food in such a way as to
guarantee good air circulation throughout the interior. 
The coldest zones (suitable, for example, for storing cold
cuts and meats) are just above the fruit and vegetable dra-
wers, i.e at the bottom rear section of the compartment; the
least cold zones are at the top of the compartment,
towards the front and in the inner door (ideal for storing
butter and spreading cheese).

For optimum use of the refrigerator compartment:
- do not place hot foods or liquids in the refrigerator;
- always use closed containers or special storage solutions

for liquids and foods that give off a strong smell or that could
be tainted by other foods in the compartment; 

- do not store cooking oil in the special compartments in the

inner door: the plastic may crack.

Do not store explosive materials or pressurized con-
tainers with flammable propellants such as butane,

propane, pentane, etc., and only store strong alcohol in clo-
sed containers stored vertically. Gas or liquid accidentally
leaked from pressurized cans can be identified by reading
the information provided by the manufacturer on the packa-
ging, often marked with a flame symbol.

Food:

Meat 

(any kind): should be wrapped and sealed in protecti-

ve food wrap. Bear in mind that maximum storage time is
generally 1-2 days.

Cooked food, cold platters, etc.

must be covered well and

can be stored on any shelf.

Fruit and vegetables

should be washed, then stored in the

purpose-designed crisper drawers, even without any wrapping.

Tips for optimum freezing

Ensure fresh food to be frozen is of prime quality, and wash
and dry it carefully before freezing.

- Avoid opening the compartment door too frequently and do

not leave it open any longer than is necessary.

- Place fresh food to be frozen in the bottom drawer, which is

the coldest zone of the freezer.

- The appliance data plate states the maximum amount of

fresh food that can be frozen in 24 hours (“freezing capa-
city”). Freezing a larger amount of food results in poorer
quality freezing, and significantly reduces the quality of
already frozen food.

- To promote rapid freezing and make it easier to defrost

small amounts of food at a time, split food into small

portions, wrapping them carefully in suitable protective
wrap (aluminium foil or special freezer bags), sealing
them properly. 

- Packages must be dry in order to prevent them freezing and

sticking together;

- Packages must be sealed properly in order to ensure air and

humidity are trapped inside, thus preventing food from
drying out and losing precious vitamins.  Freezer bags
and/or aluminium foil must be soft enough to adhere to
food.

- Be sure to write the freezing date and use by date on each

package placed in the freezer. Do not store food for any lon-
ger than is recommended by the manufacturer. 

- The inner freezer door features a diagram detailing recom-

mended storage times for meat and other foodstuffs. These
times are only valid if freezing is carried out as properly

Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, however, should not
be stored in the refrigerator, 

unless specially wrapped

.

Use suitable materials to wrap and store food: aluminium foil
and cling film can be used several times, and metal and glass
containers are also suitable.

Storing frozen foods and freezing fresh foods. 

The freezer compartment is intended for storing frozen food,
freezing small amounts of food and making ice cubes and ice
cream.
The freezer compartment may also be used without the pro-
vided drawers by simply placing the food on the shelves and
on the bottom of the compartment.

IMPORTANT

To store food for a prolonged period of time, a temperatu-
re of 

-18°C

is necessary. This temperature significantly

blocks the action of microorganisms. As soon as the tem-
perature exceeds 

10°C

, the process of decomposition trig-

gered by microorganisms begins again, causing food to
perish far more quickly.
For this reason, once food has been defrosted, it can only
be frozen again after being cooked (boiled or cooked).
Cooking at high temperatures eliminates the majority of
microorganisms.
The freezer compartment (4 stars) can be used for storing
frozen food and for freezing fresh food:
- frozen food to be stored in the freezer must be in prime con-

dition at the moment of purchase;

- in any event, frozen food must not be stored in the freezer

for any longer than is recommended on the packaging.

- restrict the frequency of door opening for the freezer

compartment and try to keep the door open for as little
time as possible.

The storage temperature must always be -

18°C or lower.  

IMPORTANT

Any increase in the temperature of frozen foods shortens the
length of time they can be stored in the freezer.
- If for some reason, for example as a result of a power cut,

food in the freezer compartment thaws completely, it must
be used up in a very short space of time; once cooked, it
can be frozen again. 

- In the event of short power failures (up to 6-8 hours) the

appliance will maintain suitable storage conditions and food
will not deteriorate.

Ice cubes

The appliance comes equipped with one or more ice cube
trays; fill the trays 3/4 with potable water and place them in
the special compartment. Do not use metal or sharp objects
to detach the trays, should they become stuck. To remove the
ice cubes from the trays with ease, pour a little running water
over the trays.

Ice cream and ice lollies

To avoid cold burns to the tongue or lips, wait a

few minutes before eating ice cream or ice lollies taken from
the freezer. For the same reason, avoid touching the walls of
the freezer with wet hands.

FREEZING

using premium quality, fresh food.

- Lie the food to be frozen horizontally in the freezer com-

partment so that it can freeze as quickly as possible, even
in the middle;

- In order to prevent frozen food from thawing, arrange

fresh food so that it does not come into contact with
already frozen food. When freezing small amounts of food
(1-2 kg) there is no need to adjust the thermostat knob.
When freezing larger amounts, follow the advice given in
the control panel user manual.

Important

- Never store bottled drinks, especially carbonated, in the
freezer compartment or low temperature compartment; as
the drinks freeze, the contents expand and the bottles can
explode.

Calendar

The symbols on the calendar inside the freezer door indicate
the various products that can be frozen. The numbers indicate
the recommended storage time, expressed in months, for
each food type.
The higher number can be taken as the valid storage period
for premium quality products, properly frozen.

Defrosting food

For optimum results when cooking frozen food, allow it to
defrost first in the refrigerator or at ambient temperature: tha-
wing time will be shorter at ambient temperature. If you need to
cook food quickly, as long as the portions are small, you cook it
straight from frozen, increasing the cooking time slightly.

Average to larger portions can be defrosted in a microwave
oven before cooking.
Once thawed, food perishes quickly and must therefore be
used within12-24 hours. Once cooked, (boiled or cooked) it
can be frozen again. 

DEFROSTING

The frost that builds up on the inside walls of the refrigerator
defrosts automatically each time the compressor stops. This
defrost water is routed to a special basin positioned above
the compressor at the rear of the appliance, from where it
evaporates thanks to the heat generated by the compressor.
Excessive build-up of frost can be caused by the thermostat
being turned up too high or by poorly fitting door seals. 

Remember to clean the defrost water drain

outlet from time to time (positioned in the

middle of the drain channel in the refrigerator).

Defrosting the freezer compartment

It is perfectly normal for frost and ice to form in the freezer
compartment. Nonetheless, if the layer becomes excessively
thick, it acts an insulator and compromises cooling. If ice for-
mation in the compartment is excessive, check that the free-
zer door closes properly and that the door seals adhere well
and are in a good state of repair. Defrost the freezer com-
partment periodically, and whenever the layer of icereaches
a thickness of around 5 mm. Up to a thickness of around 3-4
mm, ice can be removed using a plastic scraper. If the layer
of ice is thicker, proceed as follows:

1. 24 hours before defrosting, turn the thermostat knob to the

highest setting or select the SUPER FREEZING function
(if provided). Frozen food will be adequately frozen and
may be removed from the appliance.

2.

Dry your hands thoroughly (or wear rubber gloves
if possible) to avoid damage to skin in the event

you inadvertently touch the ice.

3. Remove frozen food (empty all food from the refrigerator

compartment too), wrap and store it in a dry, cool place.

4. 

Unplug the appliance from the mains. 

5. Leave the appliance door open and scrape the ice care-

fully off the walls using the plastic scraper; collect the pie-
ces of ice and allow them to melt in the kitchen sink.

6. Remove the defrost water drain channel (if provided)

from the bottom of the appliance and position a basin to
collect the defrost water. If your appliance does not have
a defrost water drain channel, place a towel in front of
the appliance and continually remove the water with the
help of a sponge.

7. In order to prevent thawing of the food removed from the

freezer, this defrosting procedure should be completed in
not more than two hours. If necessary, you can speed up
the process by placing a bowl of warm water (not hot) on
the bottom of the compartment, closing the door.

8. 

After defrosting, clean the inside of the appliance
with a mild solution of warm water and vinegar,

then dry it thoroughly.

9. Plug the appliance back into the mains and switch it on,

turning the thermostat up to the highest setting or selecting
the SUPER FREEZING function (if provided).Return the
food to the freezer and after two or three hours set the
thermostat to its usual setting.

Never use electrical appliances such as hairdryers

or fan heaters to defrost the appliance.

Never use any means with a naked flame (e.g.

candles) to defrost the appliance. You risk melting the pla-
stic casing, at which point the foam and gas contained
behind the walls could catch fire in the presence of sparks
or naked flames.

Abnormal operation is not always caused by an actual mal-
function of the appliance: it may, on the other hand, be cau-
sed by incorrect installation or use. To avoid needless call-
outs and resulting bills for after-sales service, check first of all
whether you have fully observed all the advice and recom-
mendations given in the user manual.

1. The internal temperature is not low enough. 

Check that:
- the doors close properly and no air can enter the com-

partments; to check whether the door seals adhere pro-
perly, you can place a sheet of paper between the seal
and the door before closing. When the door is closed, it
should be very difficult to pull the paper in any direction at
all.

- the settings on the control panel are all correct;
- the refrigerator is not positioned near a heat source;
- the condenser is clean and air can circulate freely at the

rear of the appliance;

- there is no excessive build-up of frost in the low-tempe-

rature compartment;

- the ambient temperature of the room where the applian-

ce is installed corresponds to the climatic class indicated
on the data plate.

2. The internal temperature is too cold or the compressor

runs constantly.

This can be caused by too much food being placed
in the compartment or frequent door opening. 
- Check that the control panel settings are correct

(turn the thermostat to a lower setting).

- Check the door closes properly and that the seals

adhere properly.

- Check the ambient conditions.
- Check there is sufficient ventilation and that the air

vents are unobstructed.

3.

The appliance is excessively noisy.

Check that: 
- The appliance is standing evenly on the floor; furniture

and items next to the appliance must not vibrate when
the compressor is running;

- Check that the pipes at the rear of the appliance are not

touching anything; if necessary, move the appliance fur-
ther out from the wall;

- Check that all visible screws are screwed down secu-

rely and that all removable parts of the appliance are fit-
ted properly;

- Check that there are no bottles or containers touching.

Attention: noises caused by the circulation of liquid in the
refrigerant circuit are normal and unavoidable.

Do not, under any circumstances, try to make any

repairs to the appliance yourself.

4. The appliance is not working

Check that:
- the settings on the control panel are all correct;
- the green light or display (if provided) is on;
- there is no power failure;
- the power supply cable is not damaged or broken and

the power plug is properly inserted in the socket;

- the domestic mains switch is not disconnected and that

the fuse has not blown;

If the light is not working, check that:
- the mains electrical supply is present;
- the door switch is not stuck;

-

If necessary, unplug the appliance from the

mains, remove the lampcover, releasing the clip (A);

- check that the bulb is not simply loose, tightening it if

necessary;

- if the bulb is faulty, replace it with another with the same

wattage and voltage; the maximum wattage is indicated
on the lamp cover.

Take care when handling the bulb, in case it is
still hot.

- Put the the lamp cover back on and plug the appliance

back into the mains.

- Check that the light works when the door is opened and

that it switches off when the door is closed.

6.  Water collects at the bottom of the refrigerator

compartment

Check that:
- the water drain outlet, at the rear of the compartment, is

not blocked. Clean it if necessary.

English

To refit the door with the hinges on the opposite side, proceed
as follows:
1. remove the cover plugs from the doors, revealing the fixing

holes for the handles;

2. refit the refrigerator and freezer handles on the right hand

side of the doors (fig. 

B

); 

3. unscrew the pin of the top right hand hinge using a 5 mm

socket wrench and refit it on the left hinge (fig. 

C

);

4. reposition the refrigerator door and screw down the midd-

le hinge on the left hand side, turned 180° (fig. 

D

), being

careful not to overtighten the screws;

5. reposition the freezer door and screw down the bottom

hinge on the left hand side, after moving the pin to the left
hand hole;

6. remove the cover plugs from the left hand side of the cen-

tral crosspiece and position them on the right (fig. 

E

);

7. refit the bottom plinth;
8. to align the doors precisely, adjust the middle hinge,

moving it horizontally; once the doors are perfectly ali-
gned, fully tighten the screws.

Attention: 

once you have finished inverting the doors, check

that the door seals adhere to the cabinet properly. If they do
not, heat the loose section of door seal with a standard
hairdryer, taking care not to burn it.

1.  Control panel  

To operate the appliance, turn the thermostat knob (A) in
a clockwise direction from the “OFF” position to a setting
that corresponds to the desired level of refrigeration.
The thermostat knob can be set to any position between
minimum (less cold) and maximum (cold est): MIN - MED
- MAX.
When the thermostat knob is turned back to OFF, this
automatically shuts down the compressor and turns off
the light.
Use a coin or a screwdriver to adjust the temperature set-
ting; avoid using other sharp utensils such as scissors. 

2.  Adjusting the temperature  

When setting the temperature, take into account the fol-
lowing factors:
- ambient temperature;
- amount of food stored in the appliance;
- frequency of door opening;

We advise you set the temperature initially mid-way bet-
ween MED and MAX; by simply observing appliance
operation, you will quickly be able to establish the best
temperature setting for your needs.
Appropriate temperature setting is an important factor for
optimum storage of food.
The aggressive action of microrganisms causes food to
perish quickly: by selecting the appropriate storage tem-
perature, this process can be prevented or at least slo-
wed down. Temperature influences the speed at which
microrganisms proliferate. By lowering the temperature,
you can slow down such proliferation.

For this reason, we recommend you main-

tain an average temperature inside the 

refrigerator (5°C or lower).

When the thermostat is turned up too high (MAX), in
the presence of high ambient temperatures and large
amounts of food in the compartment the appliance may
run continually, resulting in excessive frost or ice for-
ming on the walls.

In these conditions, the thermostat must be turned to a
lower setting, in order to restore the correct operation of
the appliance and to significantly save energy.
