Scrapping old appliance

This appliance is marked according to the European directive 2012/19/EU on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). WEEE contains both polluting substances (which can cause negative consequences for the environment) and basic components (which can be re-used). It is important to have WEEE subjected to specific treatments, in order to remove and dispose properly all pollutants, and recover and recycle all materials. Individuals can play an important role in ensuring that WEEE does not become an environmental issue; it is essential to follow some basic rules:

  • WEEE should not be treated as household waste;
  • WEEE should be handed over to the relevant collection points managed by the municipality or by registered companies. In many countries, for large
    WEEE, the home collection could be present.

In many countries, when you buy a new appliance, the old one may be returned to the retailer who has to collect it free of charge on a one-to-one basis, as long as the equipment is of equivalent type and has the same functions as the supplied equipment.

By placing the mark on this product, we are confirming compliance to all relevant European safety, health, and environmental requirements that are applicable in legislation for this product.



  • Do not install the appliance in a damp or wet location as this could compromise the insulation and result in leakage. Furthermore, on the exterior of the same, condensate could accumulate

  • Do not place the appliance in locations outside or near sources of heat or exposed to direct sunlight.
    The appliance operates properly within the range of environmental temperatures indicated:
    +10 +32’C for the climatic class SN
    +16 +32’C for the climatic class N
    +16 +38’C for the climatic class ST
    +16 +43’C for the climatic class T
    (See the nameplate of the product)

  • Do not place containers with liquids on top of the appliance.

  • Wait at least 3 hours after final placement before placing the appliance in operation.

Electrical connection
After shipping, place the appliance vertically and wait at least 2 – 3 hours before connecting it to the electrical system. Before inserting the plug into the electrical socket, make sure that:

  • The socket is earthed and in compliance with the law.
  • The socket can withstand the maximum power load of the appliance, as indicated on the nameplate of the refrigerator.
  • The power supply voltage is within the amounts indicated on the nameplate of the refrigerator.
  • The cord must not be folded or compressed.
  • The cord must be checked regularly and replaced solely by authorized technicians.
  • The manufacturer declines any liability whenever these safety measures are not respected.

Appliance start-up

Remove all wrapping/packaging present inside the appliance and clean with water and baking soda or neutral soap.
After the installation, wait 2 – 3 hours to allow time for the refrigerator/ freezer to stabilize at normal working temperature, before placing fresh or frozen foods inside.
If the power cord becomes disconnected, wait at least five minutes before restarting the refrigerator/ freezer. At this point, the appliance is ready for use.


Temperature adjustment (no display)

  • The temperature adjustment of both compartments is affected by rotating the thermostat knob (Fig. 1).
    Select the desired position:

  • For colder temperatures in the freezer, by turning towards 5.

  • For temperature less cold in the refrigerator and in the freezer, by rotating in the direction of OFF.

For better energy savings, we suggest:

  • Installing the appliance away from heat sources and not exposed to direct sunlight and in a well-ventilated room.
  • Avoid putting hot food into the refrigerator to avoid increasing the internal temperature and therefore causing continuous functioning of the compressor.
  • Do not excessively stuff foods so as to ensure proper air circulation.
  • Defrost the appliance in case there is ice (see DEFROSTING) to facilitate the transfer of cold.
  • ln case of the absence of electrical energy, it is advisable to keep the refrigerator door closed.
  • Open or keep the doors of the appliance open as little as possible
  • Avoid adjusting the thermostat to temperatures too cold.
  • Remove dust present on the rear of the appliance (see CLEANING).

During its operation, the refrigerator emits some absolutely normal noises, such as:

  • HUMMING, the compressor is running.
  • RUMBLINGS, RUSTLINGS, and HISSING, the refrigerant is flowing through the tubes.
  • TICKS and CLICKS, the operation shutdown of the compressor. Small measures to reduce the vibration noises:
  • Containers touch each other: Avoid contact between containers and glass recipients.
  • Drawers, shelves, bins vibrate: Check the proper installation of internal accessories.

The refrigerant gas produces noise even when the compressor is off; it is not a defect, it is normal.
If you hear a clicking sound inside the appliance, it is normal as due to the expansion of the various materials.



  • Before each operation, remove the refrigerator plug from the power socket to prevent electric shocks.
  • Do not pour water directly on the outside or inside of the refrigerator itself. This could lead to oxidation and damaging of the electrical insulation.

The rating pate states the maximum quantity of foods that can be frozen. (see Figure 2).

Freezer zone
Use the table below for the compartments
The freezing process can only occur in the compartments

Practical recommendations
Place food on the shelves in a homogeneous manner to allow air to circulate properly and to cool it.

  • Avoid contact between the food and the far-end walls of the refrigerator compartment.

  • Do not introduce hot foods as they can cause deterioration of existing ones and increase energy consumption.

  • Do not obstruct the cold air ventilator openings with food.

  • Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment as they can burst when frozen.

  • ln the case of a prolonged power outage, keep the doors closed so that foods remain cold as long as possible.

  • The installation of the appliance in a hot and humid location, with frequent door openings and storing large amounts of vegetables, can cause the
    formation of condensate and affect the performance of the unit itself.

  • To prevent excessive energy consumption, the frequent or prolonged opening of the doors is not recommended.


  • Foods must be fresh.
  • Freeze small amounts of food at a time in order to freeze quickly. Never exceed the maximum amount indicated on the rating label.
  • During freezing, do not open the freezer door.
  • Food must be sealed, airtight.
  • Separate food to be frozen by those already frozen.
  • Label bags or containers to keep an inventory of frozen foods.
  • Once defrosted, do not ever refreeze foods and consume them promptly.

Defrosting the freezer compartment (static products without NO-FROST technology)
When the layer of frost is present in the freezer compartment exceeds 3mm, it is recommended to proceed with the defrosting as it increases energy consumption.

  1. Rotate the knob to the „0“ position (Fig .3)

  2. Disconnect the power cord.

  3. Remove the frozen food and temporarily place them in a cool place.

  4. Leave the freezer door open to speed defrosting.

  5. Collect the water on the bottom of the product.

  6. Dry the freezer.

  7. Reconnect the power cord and set the desired values.

  8. Wait a moment and reintroduce the frozen foods.

Absolutely avoid the use of open flames or electrical appliances, such as heaters, steam cleaners, candles, oil lamps, and the like to accelerate the defrosting phase.
Do not scrape with a knife or sharp object to remove frost or ice present. These can damage the refrigerant circuit, the leakage of which can cause a fire or damage your eyes.




The appliance is equipped with coupling devices for the appliance doors with the column panels (loader slide).


Once the product has been embedded, place the rear part of the column in contact with the wall so as to prevent access to the compressor compartment.
For the product to operate correctly it is essential to allow adequate air circulation so as to cool down the condenser located in the rear part of the appliance.
