1 Important Safety Instructions

These warnings are provided in the interests of your safety. Ensure that you understand them all before installing or using this appliance. Your safety is of paramount importance. If you are unsure about any of the meanings of these warnings contact the Customer Care Department.

Prior to Installation

Check the refrigerator/freezer for transport damage. Under no circumstances should a damaged appliance be installed! In the event of damage, please contact your retailer.

Installation

This appliance is heavy. Care should be taken when moving it.

It is dangerous to alter the specifications or attempt to modify this product in any way.

Ensure that the appliance does not stand on the electrical supply cable. If the supply cable is damaged, it must be replaced by a cable available from your local Service Force Centre.

Make sure that the power plug is not squashed or damaged by the back of the fridge/freezer. A damaged power plug may overheat and cause a fire.

If the power plug socket is loose, do not insert the power plug. There is a risk of electric shock or fire.

Any electrical work required to install this appliance should be carried out by a qualified electrician or competent person.

Parts which heat up should not be exposed. Whenever possible, the back of the appliance should be close to a wall, but leaving the required distance for ventilation, as stated in the installation instructions.

The appliance should be left for 2 hours after installation before it is turned on, in order to allow the refrigerant to settle.

Refrigerant

The refrigerant isobutane (R600a) is contained within the refrigerant circuit of the appliance, a natural gas with a high level of environmental compatibility, which is nevertheless flammable.

During transportation and installation of the appliance, be certain that none of the components of the refrigerant circuit become damaged.

Installation

Installation Location

The appliance should be installed in a well ventilated, dry room.

Energy use and efficient performance of the appliance is affected by the ambient temperature.

The appliance should therefore

not be exposed to direct sunlight;

not be installed next to radiators, cookers or other sources of heat;

only be installed at a location whose ambient temperature corresponds to the climate classification, for which the appliance is

designed.

The climate classification can be found on the rating plate, which is located at the left on the inside of the appliance.

The following table shows which ambient temperature is correct for each climate classification:

Climate classification

for an ambient temperature of

SN

+10 to +32 °C

N

+16 to +32 °C

ST

+18 to +38 °C

T

+18 to +43 °C

 

 

If installation next to a source of heat is unavoidable, the following minimum clearances must be maintained at the sides of the appliance:

for electric cookers 3 cm;

for oil and coal fired ranges 30 cm.

If these clearances cannot be maintained a heat insulating pad is required between the cooker and the refrigeration appliance.
