7 Before any cleaning or maintenance operation, unplug the appliance from the mains or disconnect the electrical power supply. Periodically clean the appliance with a cloth and a solution of lukewarm water and neutral detergent specifically for refrigerator interiors. Never use detergents or abrasives. Never clean refrigerator parts with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion. Clean the outside of the appliance and the door seal with a damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use steam cleaners. Clean the condenser using a vacuum cleaner, proceeding as follows: remove the front plinth (see installation manual) and proceed to clean the condenser. Important: - The buttons and control panel display must not be cleaned with alcohol or alcohol-derived substances, but with a dry cloth. - The refrigeration system pipes are located near the defrost pan and can become hot. Periodically clean them with a vacuum cleaner. MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING Always disconnect the appliance from the power supply before replacing any light bulbs. How to replace the refrigerator compartment bulb. 1. In some models a special bulb is used 2. The bulb should not exceed 15W 3. Bulb change instruction is put in the chart (PRODUCT SHEET) REPLACING THE BULB Before contacting After-sales Service… Performance problems often result from little things you can find and fix yourself without tools of any kind. Noises coming from your appliances are normal since it has a number of fans and engines to regulate performances that switch on and off automatically. Some of the functional noises can be reduced through - Levelling the appliance and installing it on an even surface - Separating and avoiding contact between the appliance and furniture. - Checking if the internal components are correctly placed. - Checking if bottles and containers are not in contact with each other. Some of the functional noises you might hear: A hissing sound when switching on the appliance for the first time or after a long pause. A gurgling sound when refrigerant fluid enters into the pipes. Buzzing sound when water valve or fan start working. TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE For power failures lasting up to 24 hours. 1. Keep both doors of the appliance closed. This will allow the stored food to stay cold as long as possible. For power failures lasting more than 24 hours. 1. Empty the freezer compartment and arrange the food in a portable freezer. If this type of freezer is not available and, likewise, no artificial ice packs are available, try to use up the food, which is more easily perishable. 2. Empty the ice bucket.

8 A cracking sound when compressor starts or when ready ice drops into ice box Abrupt clicks when compressor switches on and off. Automatic Ice maker noises (on some models): - Since your appliance has an automatic ice maker, you may hear buzzing (from the water valve), trickling water and the clatter of the ice falling into the bucket. The appliance is not working: • Is the power cable plugged into a live socket with the proper voltage? • Have you checked the protection devices and fuses of the electrical system in your home? If your automatic ice maker does not work (on some models): • Has the freezer had enough time to become cold? With a new appliance this may take overnight. • Is the automatic ice maker ON/OFF button set to ON? • Make sure the lever of the automatic ice maker, inside the freezer compartment, is not turned to OFF, i.e. in the horizontal position (on some models). • Is the water turned on? Is water getting to the automatic ice maker? • Is there a water filter installed on the appliance (on some models)? This filter may be clogged or installed incorrectly. First, check the filter installation instructions to ensure that the filter was installed correctly and is not clogged. If installation or clogging is not a problem, call a qualified person or a technician. If there is water in the defrost pan: • This is normal in hot, damp weather. The pan can even be half full. Make sure the appliance is level so that the water does not overflow. If the edges of the appliance cabinet, which come in contact with the door seal, are warm to the touch: • This is normal in hot weather and when the compressor is running. If the light does not work: • Have you checked the protection devices and fuses of the electrical system in your home? • Is the power cable plugged into a live socket with the proper voltage? • Has the light bulb burnt out? In the case of burnt-out bulbs: 1. Always unplug the appliance from the mains. 2. See chapter “Maintenance and Cleaning”. If the motor seems to run too much: • Is the condenser free of dust and fluff? • Are the doors properly closed? • Are the door seals properly fitted? • On hot days or if the room is warm, the motor naturally runs longer. • If the appliance door has been left open for a while or if large amounts of food have been stored, the motor will run longer in order to cool down the interior of the appliance. • Motor running time depends on different things: number of door openings, amount of food stored, temperature of the room, setting of the temperature controls. If the appliance temperature is too high: • Are the appliance controls correctly set? • Has a large amount of food been added to the appliance? • Check that the doors are not opened too often. • Check that the doors close properly. • Make sure that air flow vents inside the compartment are not blocked, as this prevents the circulation of cold air. If there is moisture build-up: • Make sure that air flow vents inside the compartment are not blocked, as this prevents the circulation of air. • Make sure that the food is properly packaged. Dry any dampness on food containers before placing them in the appliance. • Check that the doors are not opened too often. When the door is opened, humidity from the room air enters the appliance. The more often the door is opened, the faster humidity builds up, especially when the room itself is very humid. • If the room is very humid, it is normal for moisture to build up inside the refrigerator. If the doors do not open and close properly: • Check that food packages are not blocking the door. • Check that the internal parts or automatic ice maker are not out of position. • Check that the door seals are not dirty or sticky. • Ensure the appliance is level.

9 Before contacting After-Sales Service: Switch the appliance on again to see if the problem has been solved. If it has not, disconnect the appliance from the power supply and wait for about an hour before switching on again. If, after performing the checks described in the Troubleshooting Guide and switching the appliance on again, your appliance still does not work properly, contact the After-sales Service, explain the problem. Specify: • the model and appliance serial number (stated on the rating plate), • the nature of the problem, • the Service number (the number after the word SERVICE on the data plate on the inside of the appliance), • your full address, • your telephone number and area code. Note: The direction of door opening can be changed. If this operation is performed by After-sales Service it is not covered by the warranty. AFTER-SALES SERVICE ENERGY-SAVING TIPS • Install the appliance in a dry, well ventilated room far away from any heat source (e.g. radiator, cooker, etc.) and in a place not exposed directly to the sun. If required, use an insulating plate. • To guarantee adequate ventilation, leave a space on both sides and above the appliance. The distance between the rear of the appliance and the wall behind the appliance should be 50mm. A reduction of this space will increase the Energy consumption of product. • Insufficient ventilation on back of the product increases energy consumption and decreases cooling efficiency. • The internal temperatures of the appliance may be affected by the ambient temperature, frequency of door opening, as well as location of the appliance. Temperature setting should take into consideration these factors. • Allow warm food and drinks to cool down before placing in the appliance. • Do not obstruct the fan with food items. • After placing the food check if the door of compartments closes properly, especially the freezer door. • Reduce to a minimum door opening. • When thawing frozen food, place them in the refrigerator. The low temperature of the frozen products cools the food in the refrigerator. • For appliances with special compartments (Fresh Food Compartment, Zero Degrees Box, …) they can be removed when not in use. • Positioning of the shelves in the refrigerator has no impact on the efficient usage of energy. Food should be placed on the shelves in such way to ensure proper air circulation (food should not touch each other and distance between food and rear wall should be kept). • You can increase the storage capacity of frozen food by removing the flap and / or basket (according to the Product Sheet), maintaining the same energy consumption. • The condenser (the coil placed in the rear of the appliance) should be cleaned regularly. • Damaged or leaky gasket must be replaced as soon as possible.
