What to do if… Possible causes Solutions
Before contacting the After-sales Service, try to solve the problem by following the advice below.
The appliance is excessively
noisy
Noises from appliances are normal since the fans and compressors
for controlling its operation switch on and off automatically, for
example:
• hissing when the appliance is switched on the first time or after a
long period.
• gurgling when the refrigerant enters the pipes.
• humming when the water valve or fan are activated.
• rattling when the compressor starts up or when the ice drips in
the bucket.
• a sudden thud when the compressor starts up or stops.
Some noises can be reduced by:
• levelling the appliance and installing it on a flat surface,
• separating and preventing contact of the appliance with the
cabinets,
• making sure the inside parts are correctly positioned,
• making sure the bottles and containers are not touching each
other.
The control panel is off and/or
the appliance is not working
There may be a problem with the power supply to the appliance
Check that:
• there has not been a power failure.
• the plug is inserted properly into the power socket and the
bipolar mains switch is in the right position (i.e. power supplied to
the appliance).
• the safety protection devices in the domestic electrical system are
working.
• the power cable isn't broken.
• the voltage is correct.
The "Standby" (depending on the model) or "Eco mode" function
may have been enabled.
• Disable the function (see the Quick Start Guide).
If the motor seems to run too
much
On hot days or if the room is warm, the motor naturally runs
longer. Furthermore, 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.
Avoid locations in direct sunlight or near a source of heat.
There may be dust or fluff in the condenser.
Remove the front plinth (see installation manual) and clean the
condenser using a vacuum cleaner.
The doors may not be closed properly or the seals may not be
intact.
Check that the doors are closed properly and that the door seals
do not allow any air infiltration.
Excessive moisture inside the
compartments.
If the room is very humid, it is normal for moisture to build up
inside the appliance.
Install the appliance in a dry, well-ventilated place.
The air ducts may be blocked.
Make sure the air ducts inside the compartments are not blocked, as
this prevents the circulation of cold air.
It is not cold enough inside the
compartments
There could be various causes
Check that:
• the doors close properly.
• the appliance is not near a heat source.
• the air ducts inside the compartments are not blocked, as this
prevents the circulation of cold air.
• the “Vacation mode” function is not enabled (see Quick Start Guide
for certain models only). If necessary, lower the temperature.
The area in contact with the seal
is hot.
This is normal in hot weather and when the compressor is running. No action is required.
If the doors do not open and
close properly.
The door seals may be dirty or sticky. Clean the seals.
The appliance may not be level. If necessary, level the appliance (see Installation manual).
The internal light is not working.
The "Standby" function may have been enabled (depending on the
model).
Disable the function (see the Quick Start Guide).
The bulb may be burnt out.
Replace the bulb (see Instructions for Use, section "Maintenance
and Cleaning").
The control panel will not do
anything: every time a button is
pressed, the acoustic signal
sounds.
The "Child Safety", "Key Lock" or "Ice/water dispenser lock"
function may have been enabled.
Disable the function (see the Quick Start Guide).
The "Compartment door open"
symbols blinks and an acoustic
signal sounds (if present)
Open door alarm.
The alarm is activated when the doors are left open for more than
2 minutes.
Close the doors or press the mute alarm button to switch off the
acoustic signal.
There are letters on the display,
and an acoustic signal is sounding
(if provided and not previously
disabled).
Malfunction Alarm
The alarm indicates that a technical component has malfunctioned.
Call an authorized After-Sales Service. Press the mute alarm button
to switch off the acoustic signal.
The "Eco mode" function may have been enabled. Disable the function (see the Quick Start Guide).
What to do if… Possible causes Solutions
The red Blackout Alarm LED
and the freezer temperature
display are blinking, and the
acoustic signal is sounding (if
provided).
Blackout Alarm. This alarm activates when there has been an
extended power failure causing the freezer compartment
temperature to rise. The value flashing on the freezer display is the
highest temperature reached during the power failure.
Press the mute alarm button to switch off the acoustic signal. Check
the state of foodstuffs before consuming them.
This alarm may be activated when the appliance is used for the first
time.
Press the mute alarm button to switch off the acoustic signal. The
appliance needs approximately 2-3 hours to reach the correct
temperature to store a normal fridge load of food.
The "Anti-bacterial filter" symbol
is red and/or is blinking.
Anti-bacterial filter exhausted (if installed). Replace the filter (see the Quick Start Guide).
The "Water filter" symbol has
changed colour.
Water filter running out/exhausted (where provided).
Replace the filter (see the Quick Start Guide). To replace the filter,
refer to the Instructions for Use.
If the appliance has a water and ice dispenser:
The automatic ice-maker does
not work.
A new appliance takes about a night to reach the ideal temperature
for producing ice.
Wait for the time required for the temperature inside the freezer to
reach the set value.
The automatic ice maker may not be enabled (in some models it
can be disabled).
Refer to the Quick Start Guide to enable the automatic ice maker
again (on some models only).
Water may not reach the automatic ice maker.
Check that the product is connected to the mains water supply and
that the water tap is open.
The water filter may be clogged or installed incorrectly.
Refer to 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 qualified personnel.
The dispenser does not
dispense ice when the lever is
pressed (or when the "ice"
button is pressed, on models
without an ice lever).
This is normal when the freezer door is open, or if the ice bucket is
not installed correctly.
Close the freezer door and/or check that the ice bucket is installed
correctly.
The "Child Safety" or "Ice/water dispenser lock" function may have
been enabled.
Disable the function (see the Quick Start Guide).
Ice cubes may be stuck because the ice dispenser has not been used
for some time: The dispenser may not have been used for extended
periods, causing the ice cubes to stick together.
Change the ice selection from "ice cubes" to "crushed ice" or vice
versa (in some models only), so as to remove any ice blocks. If the
dispenser continues not to dispense ice, wait for two minutes and
then repeat this operation.
Shake the ice bucket to separate the cubes and increase the holding
capacity. It is advisable to throw away the old ice and make new ice.
The ice dispenser lever may have been pressed for too long (only
on certain models).
Wait about 3 minutes for the dispenser motor to reset
The dispenser does not
dispense water when the lever
is pressed (or when the "water"
button is pressed, on models
without an ice lever).
During the first delivery, there will be a delay of 15 to 20 seconds
due to the system needing to fill with water.
Wait for the time required for the system to fill.
The "Child Safety" or "Ice/water dispenser lock" function may have
been enabled.
Disable the function (see the Quick Start Guide).
The water filter may be clogged or installed incorrectly.
Refer to 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 qualified personnel.
There is condensation in the ice
and water dispenser area.
The dispenser anti-condensation device may have been disabled
(depending on the model)
Reactivate the function by pressing the anti-condensation switch in
the ice/water dispenser area (marked with an arrow in the figure),
depending on the model.
There is condensation on the
door.
The door anti-condensation function may have been disabled
(depending on the model)
Reactivate the function by pressing the anti-
condensation switch in the ice/water dispenser
area (marked with an arrow in the figure),
depending on the model.
The automatic ice maker
Since the appliance is equipped with an automatic ice-maker, you
