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

ªCare must be taken to ensure that the appliance does not stand on the electrical supply cable.

ªBefore any cleaning or maintenance work is carried out, be sure to switch off and unplug the appliance.

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

ªIce lollies can cause frost burns if consumed straight from the appliance.

ªTake utmost care when handling your appliance so as not to cause any damages to the cooling unit with consequent possible fluid leakages.

ªThe appliance must not be located close to radiators or gas cookers.

ªAvoid prolonged exposure of the appliance to direct sunlight.

ªThere must be adequate ventilation round the back of the appliance and any damage to the refrigerant circuit must be avoided.

ªFor freezers only (except built-in models): an ideal location is the cellar or basement.

ªDo not use other electrical appliances (such as ice cream makers) inside of refrigerating appliances, unless they are approved for this purpose by the manufacturer.

Service / Repair

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

ªThis appliance should be serviced by an authorized Service Centre, and only genuine spare parts should be used.

ªUnder no circumstances should you attempt to repair the appliance yourself.

Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause injury or more serious malfunctioning. Refer to your local Service Centre, and always insist on genuine spare parts.

ªThis appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling unit; maintenance and recharging must therefore only be carried out by authorized technicians.

Use

ªThe domestic refrigerators and freezers are designed to be used specifically for the storage of edible foodstuffs only.

ªFrozen food must not be re-frozen once it has been thawed out.

ªManufacturers’ storage recommendations should be strictly adhered to. Refer to relevant instructions.

ªThe inner lining of the appliance consists of channels through which the refrigerant passes. If these should be punctured this would damage the appliance beyond repair and cause food loss.

DO NOT USE SHARP INSTRUMENTS to scrape off frost or ice. Frost may be removed by using the scraper provided. Under no circumstances should solid ice be forced off the liner. Solid ice should be allowed to thaw when defrosting the appliance.

See defrost instructions.

ªDo not place carbonated or fizzy drinks in the freezer as it creates pressure on the container, which may cause it to explode, resulting in damage to the appliance.

ªDo not use a mechanical device or any artificial means to speed up the thawing process other than those recommended by the manufacturer.

ªNever use metal objects for cleaning your appliance as it may get damaged.

Installation

ªDuring normal operation, the condenser and compressor at the back of the appliance heat up considerably. For safety reasons, minimum ventilation must be as shown in the relevant Figure.

Attention: keep ventilation openings clear of obstruction.

ªIf the appliance is transported horizontally, it is possible that the oil contained in the compressor flows in the refrigerant circuit. It is advisable to wait at least two hours before connecting the appliance to allow the oil to flow back in the compressor.

ªThere are working parts in this product which heat up. Always ensure that there is adequate ventilation as a failure to do this will result in component failure and possible food loss. See installation instructions.

ªParts which heat up should not be exposed. Wherever possible the back of the product should be against a wall.

ªIf the appliance has been transported horizontally, it is possible that the oil contained in the compressor flows in the refrigerant circuit. It is advisable to wait at least two hours before connecting the appliance to allow the oil to flow back in the compressor.
