This appliance contains a

small amount of isobutane

refrigerant (R600a), natural gas
with high environmental compat-
ibility, but it is also combustible.
When transporting and installing
the appliance, care should be
taken to ensure that no parts of
the refrigerating circuit are dam-
aged. Refrigerant squirting out of
the pipes could ignite or cause an
eye injury. If a leak is detected,
avoid any naked fl ames or poten-
tial sources of ignition and air the
room in which the appliance is
standing for several minutes.
In order to avoid the creation of a
fl ammable gas air mixture if a leak
in the refrigerating circuit occurs,
the size of the room in which the
appliance may be sited depends
on the amount of refrigerant used.
The room must be 1m2 in size for
every 8g of R600a refrigerant
inside the appliance. The amount
of refrigerant in your particular
appliance is shown on the identifi -
cation plate inside the appliance.
Never start up an appliance show-
ing any signs of damage. If in
doubt, consult your dealer.
