This appliance contains a small amount of
isobutane refrigerant (R600a), natural gas with
high environmental compatibility, 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
damaged. Refrigerant squirting out of the pipes
could ignite or cause an eye injury. If a leak is
detected, avoid any naked flames or potential
sources of ignition and air the room in which the
appliance is standing for several minutes.
In order to avoid the creation of a flammable 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 1 m
in size for every 8 g of R600a
refrigerant inside the appliance. The amount of
refrigerant in your particular appliance is shown on
the identification plate inside the appliance.
Never start up an appliance showing any signs of
damage. If in doubt, consult your dealer.
