At the end of its working life, the product must not be disposed of as urban waste. The refrigeration system contains insulating gases and refrigerants, which require specialised waste disposal. The valuable materials contained in this appliance can be recycle. It must be taken to a special local authority differentiated waste collection centre or to a dealer providing this service.

Before disposing of an old appliance, remove the latch or bolt lock to avoid the risk of child entrapment.

Disposing of a household appliance separately avoids possible negative consequences for the environment and health deriving from inappropriate disposal and enables the constituent materials to be recovered to obtain significant savings in energy and resources. As a reminder of the need to dispose of household appliances separately, the product is marked with a crossed-out wheeled dustbin.

Before first use

You must allow the fridge to settle for at least twenty four hours prior to switching the power on.

It is recommended that you clean the interior of the appliance prior to first use, using a solution of bicarbonate of soda and warm water and then thoroughly drying the interior.

The fridge may have an odour to it at first use. This will disappear as the appliance cools.

Do not load the fridge with food until at least 2 hors have passed and the fridge is closed to correct temperature.

Please note:

The appliance will work continuously until it comes down to the correct temperature.

If the appliance is switched off, you should allow five minutes before switching it on again to prevent unnecessary damage to the compressor.

Defrosting the fridge

The fridge is self-defrosting. Any water created will run out of the fridge through the channel at the back of the fridge. It is important to keep the channel clear at all times. The defrosted water is collected in the evaporating tray at the back of the appliance.

Never put liquids in the refrigerator uncovered.

Never put hot foods in the refrigerator. Warm food should be allowed to cool to room temperature before being put into the refrigerator.

Nothing should rest against the internal rear wall of the refrigerator, as this will cause frost and possible condensation problems which will be difficult to remove.

Setting the temperature

You must allow the fridge to settle for at least twenty four hours prior to switching the power on.

The fridge will take some time to adjust to the new settings. This will depend on the difference between the old ad new settings, the ambient temperature, the amount of food in the fridge and the number of times the door is opened.

To adjust the temperature turn the thermostat control knob clockwise (from off) to the required level. The temperature

becomes colder the higher the number on the control.

Care and cleaning

Always disconnect the appliance from the power before any cleaning or maintenance.

The refrigerator should be cleaned using a solution of bicarbonate of soda and lukewarm water.

Do not use abrasive products or detergents. After washing, rinse and dry thoroughly.

Clean the shelves and balconies separately by hand using soap and water. Do not put them in the dishwasher.

The evaporating tray and water drain hole (at the back of the compartment) should be cleaned periodically to prevent the defrosted water from collecting inside the compartment. The drain plug can be used to clear the drain hole.

Once cleaning is complete, reconnect the mains power supply.

If the appliance is not used for prolonged periods of time or in the event of a prolonged power cut unplug and clean the appliance. The doors should be left slightly open to prevent the formation of mildew and smell.

The door sea soul be cleaned periodically.

Clean the switch, lamp and thermostat control with a dry cloth.
