HOW TO USE THE REFRIGERATOR
COMPARTMENT
This is an automatic refrigerator or refrigerator with
star low temperature compartment.
Refrigerator compartment defrosting is fully
automatic.
The refrigerator operates in an ambient temperature ranging
from +16°C to +32°C.
Switching on the refrigerator
Insert the plug in the mains socket. The thermostat allows
you to set the temperature inside the refrigerator
compartment without altering the conditions inside the low
temperature compartment.
Setting the temperature:
1. For correct operation and excellent storage results in
both compartments, set the thermostat between
positions 2 and 3.
2. To set the temperature inside the compartments, turn
the thermostat as follows:
•2 - 3 for a WARMER TEMPERATURE.
•3 - 4 for a COLDER TEMPERATURE.
Thermostat set to 0: position: the appliance and lighting
switch off.
Note:
Ambient temperature, the frequency with which the doors
are opened and closed and the position of the appliance can
affect the temperature inside the two compartments. Adjust
the thermostat accordingly.
How to store food in the refrigerator
compartment
1. Store the food as shown in the adjacent illustration.
A Cooked food
B Fish and meat
C Fruit and vegetables
D Bottles
E Eggs
F Butter, cheese and other dairy products
Notes:
• Make sure the air circulates freely between the shelves
and the back wall of the refrigerator.
• Do not store food against the back wall of the
compartment.
• Store liquids in sealed containers.
• Vegetables with a high water content (e.g. lettuce) may
cause condensation to form in the bottom drawers and/
or on the middle shelves; this does not affect the correct
operation of the appliance. Nevertheless, it is advisable to
wrap vegetables before storing.

HOW TO USE THE LOW TEMPERATURE
COMPARTMENT WHEN PRESENT
If installed, the
star low temperature
compartment may be used to store frozen products for
the time indicated on the packaging.
When purchasing deep-frozen foods, check the
following:
• That the packaging is intact, since the food may have
deteriorated. If the package bulges or is marked by damp
patches, the product has not been correctly stored and
may have partially thawed.
• Purchase deep-frozen foods last and use insulated bags for
transportation.
• Place items in the low temperature compartment as soon
as you get home.
• Consume partially thawed food within 24 hrs.
• Avoid temperature variations as much as possible. Observe
the “best before” date on the packaging.
• Observe the instructions for preserving deepfrozen foods
written on the packaging.
How to make ice-cubes
• Fill the ice-tray 3/4 full of water and place it in the bottom
of the low temperature compartment.
If the ice-tray sticks to the bottom, do not use pointed
or sharp instruments to detach it.
HOW TO DEFROST AND CLEAN THE LOW
TEMPERATURE COMPARTMENT
To maximise performance, defrost the low
temperature compartment at least twice a year, or
when the layer of ice on the walls reaches 3 mm
thickness.
Defrost the compartment when the contents are low.
1. Open the door and take out all food items, wrapping
them in newspaper and placing them together in a cool
place or in an insulated bag.
2. Unplug the appliance from the mains.
3. Leave the door open to allow the frost/ice on the
compartment walls to melt.
4. Remove the defrost water with a sponge.
5. Clean with a sponge soaked in a solution of lukewarm
water and neutral detergent. Do not use abrasive
substances.
6. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Note: to avoid causing irreparable damage, do not
use pointed or sharp metal instruments to scrape
off ice and do not artificially heat the low
temperature compartment.

HOW TO CLEAN THE REFRIGERATOR
COMPARTMENT
Clean the refrigerator compartment regularly.
Refrigerator compartment defrosting is fully
automatic.
The formation of water droplets on the rear internal wall of
the refrigerator compartment indicates that the automatic
defrosting is underway. Defrost water is channelled to a
runoff and collected in a container, where it evaporates.
Clean the run-off channel regularly, in order to guarantee a
continuous outflow of defrost water.
Before cleaning, unplug the appliance from the mains.
• Use a sponge soaked in lukewarm water and/or neutral
detergent.
• Rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive
materials.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
• Clean the air vents regularly with a vacuum cleaner or a
brush.
• Clean the exterior with a soft cloth.
Prolonged disuse
1. Empty the refrigerator and low temperature
compartments.
2. Unplug the appliance from the mains.
3. Defrost the low temperature compartment, clean and
dry both compartments.
4. Leave the doors open to prevent the formation
unpleasant odours.
ENERGY SAVING TIPS
• Keep the door open as little as possible.
• Do not put food in the refrigerator when still hot.
• Do not leave the low temperature compartment
door open.
• Do not expose the appliance to heat sources,
direct sunlight, etc., since this will increase
energy consumption.
• Do not cover the vents or air outlets.
• When thawing food items, place them in the
refrigerator compartment to make use of the low
temperature.
