Switching on
Insert the plug into the wall socket.
Turn the Temperature regulator clockwise to a medium
Switching off
To turn off the appliance, turn the Temperature regulator
to the "O" position.
Temperature regulation
The temperature is automatically regulated.
To operate the appliance, proceed as follows:
• turn the Temperature regulator toward lower settings to
obtain the minimum coldness.
• turn the Temperature regulator toward higher settings
to obtain the maximum coldness.
A medium setting is generally the most suitable.
However, the exact setting should be chosen keeping in
mind that the temperature inside the appliance depends
• room temperature
• how often the door is opened
• the quantity of food stored
• the location of the appliance.
Important! If the ambient temperature is high or the
appliance is fully loaded, and the appliance is set to the
lowest temperatures, it may run continuously causing
frost to form on the rear wall. In this case the dial must be
set to a higher temperature to allow automatic defrosting
and therefore reduced energy consumption.
First use
Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first time, wash the inte-
rior and all internal accessories with lukewarm water and
some neutral soap so as to remove the typical smell of a
brand-new product, then dry thoroughly.
Important! Do not use detergents or abrasive powders, as
these will damage the finish.
Daily use
Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigera-
tor are equipped with a
series of runners so that
the shelves can be posi-
tioned as desired.
Positioning the door shelves
To permit storage of food
packages of various sizes,
the door shelves can be
placed at different heights.
Gradually pull the shelf in
the direction of the arrows
until it comes free, then
reposition as required.

Helpful hints and tips
Hints for energy saving
• Do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer
than absolutely necessary.
• If the ambient temperature is high and the Temperature
Regulator is set to low temperature and the appliance is
fully loaded, the compressor may run continuously,
causing frost or ice on the evaporator. If this happens,
set the Temperature Regulator toward warmer settings
to allow automatic defrosting and so a saving in elec-
tricity consumption.
Hints for fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance:
• do not store warm food or evaporating liquids in the
• do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
• position food so that air can circulate freely around it
Hints for refrigeration
Useful hints:
Meat (all types) : wrap in polythene bags and place on the
glass shelf above the vegetable drawer.
For safety, store in this way only one or two days at the
Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc..: these should be covered
and may be placed on any shelf.
Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly cleaned
and placed in the special drawer(s) provided.
Butter and cheese: these should be placed in special air-
tight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or polythene
bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be stor-
ed in the bottle rack on the door.
Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not packed, must
not be kept in the refrigerator.
Care and Cleaning
Caution! Unplug the appliance before carrying out
any maintenance operation.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling
unit; maintenance and recharging must therefore
only be carried out by authorized technicians.
Periodic cleaning
The equipment has to be cleaned regularly:
• clean the inside and accessories with lukewarm water
and some neutral soap.
• regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure
they are clean and free from debris.
• rinse and dry thoroughly.
Important! Do not pull, move or damage any pipes and/or
cables inside the cabinet.
Never use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed
cleaning products or wax polishes to clean the interior as
this will damage the surface and leave a strong odour.
Clean the condenser (black grill) and the compressor at
the back of the appliance with a brush. This operation will
improve the performance of the appliance and save elec-
tricity consumption.
Important! Take care of not to damage the cooling system.
Many proprietary kitchen surface cleaners contain chemi-
cals that can attack/damage the plastics used in this appli-
ance. For this reason it is recommended that the outer
casing of this appliance is only cleaned with warm water
with a little washing-up liquid added.
After cleaning, reconnect the equipment to the mains sup-
Defrosting of the refrigerator
Frost is automatically eliminated from the evaporator of
the refrigerator compartment every time the motor com-
pressor stops, during normal use. The defrost water
drains out through a trough into a special container at the
back of the appliance, over the motor compressor, where
it evaporates.
It is important to periodically clean the defrost water drain
hole in the middle of the refrigerator compartment channel
to prevent the water overflowing and dripping onto the
food inside. Use the special cleaner provided, which you
will find already inserted into the drain hole.

Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long periods, take the
following precautions:
• disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
• remove all food
• defrost (if foreseen) and clean the appliance and all ac-
• leave the door/doors ajar to prevent unpleasant smells.
If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to check it
once in a while to prevent the food inside from spoiling in
case of a power failure.
