1. Follow the installation instruction supplied with the appliance.

2. Wait at least 4 hours before connecting the appliance to the power supply. 

This is to allow the oil to flow back in the compressor.

3. Make sure the air can circulate around the appliance.

4. Do not install the appliance close to radiators or cookers, ovens or hobs.

5. Do not install the appliance where there is direct sunlight.

6. Do not install the appliance in areas that are too humid or too cold.

7. Set the vertical and horizontal level when the appliance is empty.

Leaving the door spacer causes the door to be closed incorrectly.
