Safety
information
• In order to avoid the creation of a flammable gas-air mixture
if a leak in the refrigerating circuit occurs, the size of the room
in which the appliance may be sited depends on the amount of
refrigerant used.
• Never start up an appliance showing any signs of damage. If in
doubt, consult your dealer. The room must be 1 m³ in size for
every 8 g of R-600a refrigerant inside the appliance.
The amount of refrigerant in your particular appliance is shown on
the identification plate inside the appliance.
• Refrigerant squirting out of the pipes could ignite or cause an eye
injury. When refrigerant leaks from the pipe, avoid any naked
flames and move anything flammable away from the product and
ventilate the room immediately.
- Failing to do so may result in fire or explosion.

Additional tips for proper usage
• In the event of a power failure, call the local office of your electric
company and ask how long the failure is going to last.
- Most power failures that are corrected in an hour or two will
not affect your refrigerator temperatures. However, you should
minimize the number of door openings while the power is off.
- Should the power failure last more than 24 hours, remove and
discard all frozen food.
• The refrigerator might not operate consistently (frozen contents
can thaw or temperatures can become too warm in the frozen
food compartment) if sited for an extended period of time in a
location where ambient air temperatures are constantly below the
temperatures for which the appliance is designed.
• In case of particular foods, keeping it under refrigeration can have
a bad effect on preservation due to its properties.
• Your appliance is frost free, which means there is no need
to manually defrost your appliance. This will be carried out
automatically.
• Temperature rise during defrosting complies with ISO
requirements. If you want to prevent an undue rise in the
temperature of frozen food while the appliance defrosts, wrap the
frozen food in several layers of newspaper.
• Do not re-freeze frozen foods that have thawed completely.
• The temperature of two star section (sections) or compartment
(compartments) which have two star symbol ( ) is slightly higher
than other freezer compartment (compartments).
The two star section (sections) or compartment (compartments) is
(are) based on the instruction and/or the condition as delivered.

Saving Energy Tips
• Install the appliance in a cool, dry room with adequate ventilation.
Ensure that it is not exposed to direct sunlight and never put it
near a direct source of heat (a radiator, for example).
• Not to block any vents and grilles is recommended for energy
efficiency.
• Allow warm food to cool down before placing it in the appliance.
• Put frozen food in the refrigerator to thaw. You can then use
the low temperatures of the frozen products to cool food in the
refrigerator.
• Do not keep the door of the refrigerator open for too long when
putting food in or taking food out. The shorter the time the door is
open, the less frost build-up you’ll have in the freezer.
• It is recommended to install the refrigerator with clearance to the
back and sides. This will help reduce power consumption and keep
your energy bills lower.
• For the most efficient use of energy, please keep the all inner
fittings such as baskets, drawers, shelves on the position supplied
by manufacturer.
This appliance is intended to be used in household and similar
applications such as
• staff kitchen areas in shops, offices and other working
environments;
• farm houses and by clients in hotels, motels and other residential
type environments;
• bed and breakfast type environments;
• catering and similar non-retail applications.

Step-by-step installation
STEP 1 Select a site
Site requirements:
• Solid, level surface without carpeting or flooring that may obstruct ventilation
• Away from direct sunlight
• Adequate room for opening and closing the door
• Away from a heat source
• Room for maintenance and servicing
• Temperature range: between 5 °C and 43 °C
Effective temperature range
The refrigerator is designed to operate normally in the temperature range specified by its
class rating.

STEP 2 Flooring
• The surface to install the refrigerator
must support a fully loaded refrigerator.
• To protect the floor, put a large piece
of cardboard on each leg of the
refrigerator.
• Once the refrigerator is in its final
position, do not move it unless
necessary to protect the floor. If you
have to, use a thick paper or cloth such
as old carpets along the movement
path.
NOTE
If the refrigerator cannot pass through the entrance due to its size, see the Door removal
for entrance section in the Installation chapter.

STEP 3 Adjust the levelling feet
CAUTION
• The refrigerator must be levelled on a flat, solid floor. Failing to do so can cause
damage to the refrigerator or physical injury.
• Levelling must be performed with an empty refrigerator. Make sure no food items
remain inside the refrigerator.
• For safety reasons, adjust the front side a little higher than the rear side.
The refrigerator can be levelled using the front legs that have a special screw (leveller) for
levelling purposes. Use a flat-head screwdriver for levelling.
To adjust the height of the freezer side:
Insert a flat-head screwdriver into the
leveller of the freezer-side front leg. Turn
the leveller clockwise to raise, or turn it
counter clockwise to lower.
To adjust the height of the fridge side:
Insert a flat-head screwdriver into the
leveller of the fridge-side front leg. Turn
the leveller clockwise to raise, or turn it
counter clockwise to lower.
