The Owner's manual was very helpful. The WEGA is about 35 years old and needed repair.
Your Website is pretty good und easily to handle.

Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first time, wash the interior 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. Do not use detergents or abrasive powders, as these will damage the finish. â¢
Unplug the appliance before all operations.
Fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance: â¢ â¢ do not store warm food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong flavour. Position food so that air can circulate freely round it.
To reverse the door, proceed as follows: 1. Remove the lower hinge (1) and the foot (2); 2. unscrew the left front foot and reposition on the opposite side; 3. unscrew the two screws which mask the holes for fixing the hinge from the left front side; 4. slide the door out from pin (G),unscrew the pin and reposition on the opposite side; 5. reassemble the door; 6. Re-assemble the lower hinge (1) and the foot (2) on the opposite side, as shown in the figure; 7. Unscrew the handle. Refit it on the opposite side after having pierced the plugs with a punch. Cover the holes left open with the plugs supplied in the documentation pack. Attention After completion of the door reversibility operation, verify that the door gasket is adherent to the cabinet. If the ambient temperature is cold (i.e. in Winter), the gasket may not fit perfectly to the cabinet. In that case, wait for the natural fitting of the gasket or accelerate this process by heating up the part involved with a normal hairdrier.
Insert the plug into the wall socket. Open the refrigerator door and turn the thermostat knob, clockwise, beyond the Â«OÂ» (STOP) position. The appliance will start to operate. To stop operation, simply turn the thermostat knob to position Â«OÂ»
The temperature is automatically regulated and can be increased to achieve a higher temperature (warmer) by rotating the thermostat knob toward lower settings or reduced (colder) rotating the knob towards higher settings. However, the exact setting should be chosen keeping in mind that the temperature inside the refrigerator depends on: â¢ â¢ â¢ â¢ room temperature; how often the door is opened; the quantity of food stored; location of appliance.
A medium setting is generally the most suitable. 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.
