Installation instructions 1. Do not keep your appliance in a room where the temperature is likely to fall below 10 degrees C (50 degrees F) at night and/or especially in winter, as it is designed to operate in ambient temperatures between +10 and +43 degrees C (50 and 100 degrees F). At lower temperatures the appliance may not operate, resulting in a reduction in the storage life of the food. 2. Do not place the appliance near cookers or radiators or in direct sunlight, as this will cause extra strain on the appliance's functions. If installed next to a source of heat or freezer, maintain the following minimum side clearances: From Cookers 30 mm From Radiators 300 mm From Freezers 25 mm 3. Make sure that sufficient room is provided around the appliance to ensure free air circulation (Item 2). • Put the back airing lid to the back of your refrigerator to set the distance between the refrigerator and the wall (Item 3). 2
GB Instruction for use 4. The appliance should be positioned on a smooth surface. The two front feet can be adjusted as required.To ensure that your appliance is standing upright adjust the two front feet by turning clockwise or anti- clockwise, until firm contact is secured with the floor. Correct adjustment of feet prevents excessive vibration and noise (Item 4). 5. Refer to "Cleaning and Care" section to prepare your appliance for use. Temperature control and adjustment The freezer temperature is influenced by the freezer temperature set button ( recomanded are 2 or 3 position). Generally, this temperature is bellow -18° C lowertemperatures can be obtained by adjusting the thermostat knob towards position MAX. We recommend checking the temperature with a thermometer to ensure that the storage compartments are kept to the desired temperature. Remember to take the reading immediately since the thermometer temperature will rise very rapidly after you remove it from the freezer. Please remember that each time the door is opened cold air escapes and the internal temperature rises. Therefore never leave the door open and ensure it is closed immediately after food is put in or removed. Before operating Final Check Before you start using the freezer check that: 1. The feet have been adjusted for perfect levelling. 2. The interior is dry and air can circulate freely at the rear. 3. The interior is clean as recommended under "CLEANING AND CARE." 4. The plug is inserted into the wall socket and the electricity supply is switched on. Avoid accidental disconnection by taping over the switch. And note that: 5. You will hear a noise as the compressor starts up. The liquid and gases sealed within the refrigeration system may also make some noise, whether the compressor is running or not. This is quite normal. 6. To freeze the fresh foods use the compartment marked with 4 stars (recomanded second shelf). 7. Don't put in freezer a too big quantity of foods in the same time. The foods quality is well kept if they are deeply frozen in the shortest time possible. Therefore it is preferable do not exceed the freezing capacity of the appliance shown in "Appliance record". The thermostat shall be adjusted in order to obtain the lowest temperature inside the freezer with the button on fast freeze function and the orange lamp lighting. 8. After the time necessary to freeze the fresh foods from the freezer is finished, set the thermostat button on a medium position (yellow lamp is not lighting). 9. Do not load the appliance immediately it is switched on. Wait until the correct storage temperature has been reached. We recommend that you check the temperature with an accurate thermometer (see; Temperature Control and Adjustment). Important Note: If there is a power failure do not open the door. Frozen food should not be affected if the failure lasts for less than 18 hours. If the failure is longer, then the food should be checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then re-frozen. 3
GB Instruction for use Freezer control panel Item 5 The control panel adjusts the temperature in the freezer and has the following functions: 1 - Orange led - Fast freeze on When you turn the freezer temperature set buton (4) to the max position, the orange led (1) will light and the compressor will run continuously. Remember to turn the thermostat knob back to its previous position once food has frozen. 2 - Green led - electricity on (Voltage) Lights when the appliance is connected to the network and remains lit as long as it is available power supply. LED green does not provide information on temperature inside the freezer. 3 - Red Led - High Temperature Alarm 4 - Setting temperature buton High temperature alarm After the appliance is turned on for the first time the alarm is not active for 12 hours (red led is off). After this period, red led can lights (red led is on) in the following cases: - If the appliance is overloaded with fresh food - If the door is left open by mistake. In these cases the red led will remain lit until the appliance reached the preset temperature. If the red led is on wait for 24 hours before to announce the authorized service. Important: The temperatures obtained inside can vary according to the conditions of use of the appliance: location, ambient temperature, frequency of door opening, degree of loading with food. The temperature setting will be modified according to these conditions. If the red led is on wait for 24 hours before to announce the authorized service. It could be the warm food placed inside the freezer and/or the door who was left open. In 24 hrs of functioning the allarm for hight temperature (red led) it should be off. Fast freeze function When you turn the freezer temperature set buton (4) to the max position, the orange led (1) will light and the compressor will run continuously. Storing frozen food Your freezer is suitable for the long-term storage of commercially frozen foods and also can be used to freeze and store fresh food. If there is a power failure, do not open the door. Frozen food should not be affected if the failure lasts for less than 18 hrs. If the failure is longer, then the food should be checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then re-frozen Freezing fresh food Please observe the following instructions to obtain the best results. Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time. The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen right through to the core as quickly as possible. If large amounts of fresh food are going to be frozen, adjust the control knob to max. 24 hours before putting the fresh food in the fast freeze compartment. It is strongly recommended to keep the knob at MAX. position at least 24 hours to freeze maximum amount of fresh food declared as freezing capacity. Take special care not to mix frozen food and fresh food. Remember to turn the thermostat knob back to its previous position once food has frozen Small quantities of food up to 1/2 kg. (1 lb) can be frozen without fast freezer function Take special care not to mix already frozen food and fresh food. 4

GB Instruction for use Troubleshooting If the appliance does not operate when switched on, check; • That the plug is inserted properly in the socket and that the power supply is on. (To check the power supply to the socket, plug in another appliance) • Whether the fuse has blown/circuit breaker has tripped/main distribution switch has been turned off. • That the temperature control has been set correctly. • That the new plug is wired correctly, if you have changed the fitted, moulded plug. If the appliance is still not operating at all after above checks, contact the dealer from whom you purchased the unit. Please ensure that above checks have been done, as a charge will be made if no fault is found. Information about operating noises To keep the selected temperature constant, your appliance occasionally switches ON the compressor. The resulting noises are quite normal. As soon as the appliance has reached the operating temperature, the noises automatically reduce in volume. The humming noise is emitted by the motor (compressor). When the motor switches ON, the noise may briefly increase in volume. The bubbling, gurgling or whirring noise is emitted by the refrigerant as it flows through the pipes. The clicking noise can always be heard when the thermostat switches ON/OFF the motor. A clicking noise may occur when - the appliance is cooling down or warming up (material expansion). If these noises are excessively loud, the causes are probably not serious and are usually very easy to eliminate. The appliance is not level Use the height-adjustable feet or place packing under the feet. The appliance is not free-standing Please move the appliance away from kitchen units or other appliances. Shelves are loose or stick Please check the detachable components and, if required, refit them. Warning! Do not attempt at any time to repair the appliance or its electric components yourself. Any repair done by an unskilled person is dangerous for the user and can lead to warranty loss. 7
