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
Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped
with a series of runners so that the shelves
can be positioned as desired.
For better use of space, the front halfshelves can lie over the rear ones.
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 follows:
gradually pull the shelf in the direction of the
arrows until it comes free, then reposition
as required.

HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
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
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 refrigeration

CARE AND CLEANING
Caution! Unplug the appliance before
carrying out any maintenance operation.
eration will improve the performance of the
appliance and save electricity consumption.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons
in its cooling unit; maintenance and recharging must therefore only be carried
out by authorized technicians.
Important! Take care of not to damage the
cooling system.
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.
Clean the condenser (black grill) and the
compressor at the back of the appliance
with a brush or a vacuum cleaner. This op-
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.
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
electrolux 7
the water overflowing and dripping onto the
food inside. Use the special cleaner provided, which you will find already inserted into the drain hole.
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 4)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.
