Operation
Switching on
Insert the plug into the wall socket.
Turn the Temperature regulator clockwise to a medium
setting.
A medium setting is generally the most suitable.
Temperature regulation
However, the exact setting should be chosen keeping in
mind that the temperature inside the appliance depends
on:
• room temperature
• how often the door is opened
• the quantity of food stored
• the location of the appliance.
The temperature is automatically regulated.
To operate the appliance, proceed as follows:
• turn the Temperature regulator toward lower settings
to obtain the minimum coldness.
• turn the Temperature regulator toward higher settings
to obtain the maximum coldness.
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.
Switching off
To turn off the appliance, turn the Temperature regulator
to the "O" position.
First use
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.
Important! Do not use detergents or abrasive powders,
as these will damage the finish.
Daily use
Freezing fresh food
Storage of frozen food
The freezer compartment is suitable for freezing fresh food
and storing frozen and deep-frozen food for a long time.
To freeze fresh foods it is not necessary to change the
medium setting.
However, for a faster freezing operation, turn the temperature regulator toward higher settings to obtain the maximum coldness.
When first starting-up or after a period out of use, before
putting the products in the compartment let the appliance
run at least 2 hours on the higher settings.
Important! In this condition, the refrigerator compartment
temperature might drop below 0°C. If this occurs reset
the temperature regulator to a warmer setting.
Important! In the event of accidental defrosting, for
example due to a power failure, if the power has been off
for longer than the value shown in the technical
characteristics chart under "rising time", the defrosted
food must be consumed quickly or cooked immediately
and then re-frozen (after cooling).

Thawing
Positioning the door shelves
Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can be
thawed in the refrigerator compartment or at room temperature, depending on the time available for this operation.
Small pieces may even be cooked still frozen, directly
from the freezer: in this case, cooking will take longer.
To permit storage of food
packages of various sizes,
the door shelves can be
placed at different heights.
Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with a series of
runners so that the shelves can be positioned as desired.
Gradually pull the shelf in
the direction of the arrows
until it comes free, then
reposition as required.
Helpful hints and tips
Normal Operating Sounds
• You may hear a faint gurgling and a bubbling sound
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils or
tubing. This is correct.
• When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being
pumped around and you will hear a whirring sound
and a pulsating noise from the compressor. This is
correct.
• The thermic dilatation might cause a sudden cracking
noise. It is natural, not dangerous physical phenomenon. This is correct.
• When the compressor switches on or switches off, you
will hear a faint "click" of the temperature regulator.
This is correct.
Hints for energy saving
• Do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer
than absolutely necessary.
• If the ambient temperature is high and the Temperature
Regulator is set to low temperature and the appliance
is fully loaded, the compressor may run continuously,
causing frost or ice on the evaporator. If this happens,
set the Temperature Regulator toward warmer settings
to allow automatic defrosting and so a saving in electricity consumption.
Hints for fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance:
• 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 around it
Hints for refrigeration
Useful hints:
Meat (all types) : wrap in polythene bags and place on the
glass shelf above the vegetable drawer.
For safety, store in this way only one or two days at the
most.
Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc..: these should be covered
and may be placed on any shelf.
Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly cleaned
and placed in the special drawer(s) provided.
Butter and cheese: these should be placed in special airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or polythene
bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be stored
in the bottle rack on the door.
Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not packed, must
not be kept in the refrigerator.
Hints for freezing
To help you make the most of the freezing process, here
are some important hints:
• the maximum quantity of food which can be frozen in
24 hrs. is shown on the rating plate;
• the freezing process takes 24 hours. No further food to
be frozen should be added during this period;
• only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly cleaned,
foodstuffs;
Downloaded from Fridge-Manual.com Manuals
5
• prepare food in small portions to enable it to be rapidly
and completely frozen and to make it possible subsequently to thaw only the quantity required;
• wrap up the food in aluminium foil or polythene and
make sure that the packages are airtight;
• do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to touch food which
is already frozen, thus avoiding a rise in temperature
of the latter;
• lean foods store better and longer than fatty ones; salt
reduces the storage life of food;
• water ices, if consumed immediately after removal from
the freezer compartment, can possibly cause the skin
to be freeze burnt;
• it is advisable to show the freezing in date on each
individual pack to enable you to keep tab of the storage
time.
Hints for storage of frozen food
To obtain the best performance from this appliance, you
should:
• make sure that the commercially frozen foodstuffs were
adequately stored by the retailer;
• be sure that frozen foodstuffs are transferred from the
foodstore to the freezer in the shortest possible time;
• not open the door frequently or leave it open longer
than absolutely necessary.
• Once defrosted, food deteriorates rapidly and cannot
be refrozen.
• Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the food
manufacturer.
Care and cleaning
Caution! Unplug the appliance before carrying out
any maintenance operation.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling
unit; maintenance and recharging must therefore
only be carried out by authorized technicians.
Periodic cleaning
The equipment has to be cleaned regularly:
• clean the inside and accessories with lukewarm water
and some neutral soap.
• regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure
they are clean and free from debris.
• rinse and dry thoroughly.
Important! Do not pull, move or damage any pipes and/
or cables inside the cabinet.
Never use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed
cleaning products or wax polishes to clean the interior as
this will damage the surface and leave a strong odour.
casing of this appliance is only cleaned with warm water
with a little washing-up liquid added.
After cleaning, reconnect the equipment to the mains
supply.
Defrosting of the refrigerator
Frost is automatically eliminated from the evaporator of
the refrigerator compartment every time the motor compressor stops, during normal use. The defrost water
drains out through a trough into a special container at the
back of the appliance, over the motor compressor, where
it evaporates.
It is important to periodically clean the defrost water drain
hole in the middle of the refrigerator compartment channel
to prevent the water overflowing and dripping onto the
food inside. Use the special cleaner provided, which you
will find already inserted into the drain hole.
Clean the condenser (black grill) and the compressor at
the back of the appliance with a brush or a vacuum cleaner.
This operation will improve the performance of the appliance and save electricity consumption.
Important! Take care of not to damage the cooling system.
Many proprietary kitchen surface cleaners contain chemicals that can attack/damage the plastics used in this appliance. For this reason it is recommended that the outer
Defrosting the freezer
6Downloaded from Fridge-Manual.com Manuals
A certain amount of frost will always form on the
freezer shelves and around the top compartment.
Important! Defrost the freezer when the frost layer reaches
a thickness of about 3-5 mm.
To remove the frost, do these steps:
1. Switch off the appliance.
2. Remove any stored food, wrap it in several layers of
newspaper and put it in a cool place.
3. Leave the door open.
4. When defrosting is completed, dry the interior thoroughly and refit the plug.
5. Switch on the appliance.
6. Set the temperature regulator to obtain the maximum
coldness and run the appliance for two or three hours
using this setting.
7. Reload the previously removed food into the compartment.
Important! Never use sharp metal tools to scrape off frost
from the evaporator as you could damage it. Do not use
a mechanical device or any artificial means to speed up
the thawing process other than those recommended by
the manufacturer. A temperature rise of the frozen food
packs, during defrosting, may shorten their safe storage
life.
