3. FIRST USE
3.1 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.
Do not use detergents or abrasive
powders, as these will damage
the finish.
4. DAILY USE
4.1 Freezing fresh food
The freezer compartment is suitable for
freezing fresh food and storing frozen and
deep-frozen food for a long time.
To freeze fresh food activate the Fast
Freeze function at least 24 hours before
placing the food to be frozen in the freezer
compartment.
The maximum amount of food that can be
frozen in 24 hours is specified on the rating plate, a label located on the inside of
the appliance.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours: during this period do not add other food to
be frozen.
When the freezing process is completed,
return to the required temperature (see
"Fast Freeze Function").
4.2 Storage of frozen food
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.
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).
4.3 Thawing
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.
4.4 Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped
with a series of runners so that the
shelves can be positioned as desired.
Do not move the glass shelf
above the vegetable drawer and
the bottle shelf to ensure correct
air circulation.
ENGLISH
7
4.5 Positioning the door shelves
To permit storage of food packages of
various sizes, the door shelves can be
placed at different heights.
To make these adjustments proceed as
follow: gradually pull the shelf in the direction of the arrows until it comes free, then
reposition as required.
5. HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
5.1 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.
5.2 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.
5.3 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
5.4 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.
Fruits and vegetables: these should be
thoroughly cleaned and placed in the special drawer(s) provided. When in contact,
lemon juice can discolor the plastic parts
of your fridge. It is therefore recommended to keep citruses in separate containers.
Butter and cheese: these should be
placed in special airtight containers or
8
www.electrolux.com
wrapped in aluminium foil or polythene
bags to exclude as much air as possible.
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.
5.5 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;
• 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.
5.6 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.
6. 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.
6.1 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.
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.
Clean the condenser (black grill) and the
compressor at the back of the appliance
with a brush. This operation will improve
ENGLISH
the performance of the appliance and
save electricity consumption.
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 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.
6.2 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.
6.3 Defrosting the freezer
A certain amount of frost will always form on the freezer shelves
and around the top compartment.
Defrost the freezer when the frost
layer reaches a thickness of about
3-5 mm.
9
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.
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.
6.4 Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long
periods, take the following precautions:
• disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
• remove all food
• defrost (if foreseen) and clean the appliance and all accessories
• leave the door/doors ajar to prevent unpleasant smells.
If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to check it once in a while to prevent the food inside from spoiling in case
of a power failure.
