The service manual when downloaded and printed out was clear and easy to read. The manual is complete with the schematic diagram and technical data. I occasionally require a manual and now having registered with this company I shall order from them in the future.

The refrigerator automatically defrosts every time the compressor stops. The water is discharged, via the pipe, into a tray located at the back of the appliance above the compressor, where it evaporates. Important To avoid defrost water overflowing and dripping onto the food in the fridge, periodically clean the water discharge hole (F) situated under the vegetable drawers. Use the special cleaner provided (P) which you will find already inserted into the discharge hole
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Before any maintenance or cleaning work is carried out, DISCONNECT the appliance from the ELECTRICITY supply. An accumulation of dust will affect the performance of the appliance and cause excessive electricity consumption. The structure of the appliance permits to clean the rear zone close to the wall, using a vacuum cleaner. 1. Remove the plinth (1), then the ventilation grid (2); 2. Carefully pull the air deflector out (3), checking that there is no water left from the defrosting.
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water and bicarbonate of soda (5ml to 0.5 litre of water). Rinse and dry thoroughly. NEVER USE DETERGENTS, ABRASIVE POWDERS, HIGHLY PERFUMED CLEANING PRODUCTS OR WAX POLISHES, TO CLEAN THE INTERIOR AS THESE WILL DAMAGE THE SURFACE AND LEAVE A STRONG SMELL. Clean the drain hole of the water trough at regular intervals and make sure that the drain hole is never obstructed, so that the defrost water may flow freely. Important Do not use abrasive products.
The appliance is equipped with an air inlet filter (1) and an air outlet duct (2) on the ventilation grid. Keep clean to guarantee good ventilation and good working order of the appliance. The filter can be removed and washed with water, as follows: 1. Pinch flaps (a) and (b) with fingers 2. Pull the filter down. 3. Pull the filter out. To replace the filter reverse the process.
