Positioning and connection
1. Place the appliance in a well-ventilated humidity-free
2. Do not obstruct the rear fan grills. The compressor and
condenser give off heat and require good ventilation to
operate correctly and save energy.
3. Leave a space of at least 10 cm between the top part of
the appliance and any furniture above it, and at least 5 cm
between the sides and any furniture/side walls.
4. Ensure the appliance is away from any sources of heat
(direct sunlight, electric stove, etc.).
5. In order to maintain the correct distance between the
appliance and the wall behind it, fit the spacers
supplied in the installation kit, following the
instructions provided.
1. Install the appliance on a level and rigid floor.
2. If the floor is not perfectly horizontal, adjust the
refrigerator by tightening or loosening the rear feet.
Electrical connections
After the appliance has been transported, carefully place
it vertically and wait at least 3 hours before connecting it
to the electricity mains. Before inserting the plug into the
electrical socket ensure the following:
• The appliance is earthed and the plug is compliant
with the law.
• The socket can withstand the maximum power of the
appliance, which is indicated on the data plate
located inside the freezer (e.g. 150 W).
• The voltage is in the range of values indicated on the
data plate located inside the freezer (e.g. 220-240V).
• The socket is compatible with the plug of the appliance. If
the socket is incompatible with the plug, ask an
authorised technician to replace it (see Assistance). Do not
use extension cords or multiple sockets.

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).
1. Insert the plug into the socket and make sure that the
green POWER indicator light illuminates (the
TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob must be in the
OFF position).
2. Turn the TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT knob to an
average value and press the SUPER FREEZE button
(rapid freezing): the SUPER FREEZE indicator light will
illuminate. It will switch off once the freezer has
reached its optimal temperature. At this point food
may be placed inside the appliance.
Using the freezer to its full potential
• Use the TEMPERATURE CONTROL knob to adjust the
MIN = warmest
MAX = coldest
is the optimal temperature for energy saving levels.
We recommend, however, a medium position.
• 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.
• 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 within the freezer (for example: Kg/24h: 4).
• To freeze (if the freezer is already operating):
- for small quantities which are less than those indicated
on the data plate, press the rapid freezing SUPER
FREEZE button (corresponding yellow indicator light
illuminates), insert the food and close the door. The
function is disabled automatically after 24 hours or
when optimal temperatures have been reached
(indicator light goes out);
- for large quantities which are greater than the maximum
load indicated on the data plate, hold down the rapid
freezing SUPER FREEZE button until the corresponding
indicator light begins to flash. After 24 hours the indicator
light stops flashing and remains on constantly. Place the
food inside the freezer and close the door. After another
24 hours, the function will be disabled automatically
(indicator light goes out).
! 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.
