ENERGY SAVING TIPS
Install the appliance in a dry,
well ventilated room far away
from any heat source (e.g.
radiator, cooker, etc.) and in a
place not exposed directly to
the sun. If required, use an
insulating plate.
To guarantee adequate
ventilation follow installation
instructions. Insufficient
ventilation on back of the
product increases energy
consumption and decreases
cooling efficiency.
The internal temperatures of
the appliance may be affected
by the ambient temperature,
frequency of door opening, as
well as location of the
appliance. Temperature setting
should take into consideration
these factors.
Reduce to a minimum door
opening.
When thawing frozen food,
place them in the refrigerator.
The low temperature of the
frozen products cools the food
in the refrigerator.
Allow warm food and drinks to
cool down before placing in
the appliance.
Positioning of the shelves in
the refrigerator has no impact
on the efficient usage of
energy. Food should be placed
on the shelves in such way to
ensure proper air circulation
(food should not touch each
other and distance between
food and rear wall should be
kept).
You can increase storage
capacity of frozen food by
removing baskets and, if
present, Stop Frost shelve,
maintaining an equivalent
energy consumption.
High energy class products are
fitted with high efficiency
motors that remain operational
for longer, but have a low
power consumption. Do not
worry if the engine continues
to run for longer periods.

FOOD-STORAGE TIPS
FRIDGE COMPARTMENT
The refrigerator is the ideal storage location for
ready meals, fresh and preserved food, dairy
products, fruit and vegetables and beverage.
HOW TO STORE FRESH FOOD AND BEVERAGE
Use recyclable plastic, metal, aluminum and glass
containers and cling film to wrap foods.
› Do not store food too close together to enable
sufficient air circulation.
› Always use closed containers for liquids and for
food that may give off or be tainted by odor or
flavor transfer or cover them.
› To avoid bottles falling over, you can use the bottle
holder.
› Foods which give off a large amount ethylene gas
and those that are sensitive to this gas, such as fruit,
vegetables and salad, should always be separated
or wrapped so as not to reduce the storage life; for
example do not store tomatoes together with kiwi
fruits or cabbage.
› If you have a little quantity of food to store in the
refrigerator, we recommend to use the shelves
above the crisper for fruits and vegetables since this
is the coolest area of the compartment.
WHERE TO STORE FRESH FOOD AND
BEVERAGE
› On the fridge shelves: ready meals, tropical fruits,
cheeses, deli.
› In the coldest area (the one above the fruits and
vegetables crisper): meat, fish, cold cuts, cakes.
› In the fruits and vegetables crisper: fruits, salad,
vegetables.
› In the door: butter, jams, sauces, pickles, cans,
bottles, beverage cartons, eggs.

FROZEN FOOD: SHOPPING TIPS
When purchasing frozen food products:
› Ensure that the packaging is not damaged (frozen
food in damaged packaging may have
deteriorated). If the package is swollen or has damp
patches, it may not have been stored under optimal
conditions and defrosting may have already begun.
› When shopping, buy frozen foods at the end of
your trip and transport them in a thermally
insulated cool bag.
The maximum number of kilograms of fresh food
that can be frozen within a 24-hour period is
indicated on the rating plate (…kg/24h).
If you have a little quantity of food to store in the
freezer, we recommend to use the middle area.
frozen as soon as they are picked to maintain the
full original nutritional value, consistency, colour
and flavor. Some meat, especially game, should be
hung before it is frozen.
› Always leave hot food to cool before placing in the
freezer.
› Eat fully or partially defrosted foods immediately.
Do not refreeze unless the food is cooked after it
has thawed. Once cooked, the thawed food can be
refrozen.
› Do not freeze bottles with liquid.
› Please use fast cooling function to speed up
cooling of freezing process (see Daily Reference
Guide).
› Once at home, place the frozen foods immediately
in the freezer.
› If food has defrosted even partially, do not refreeze
it. Consume within 24 hours.
› Avoid or reduce temperature variations to the

RECOMMENDATION IN CASE
OF NO USE OF THE APPLIANCE
ABSENCE / VACATION
In case longer absence its recommended to use up
food and to disconnect the appliance to save
energy.
MOVING
1. Take out all internal parts.
2. Wrap them well, and fix them together with
adhesive tape so that they do not bang together or
get lost.
3. Screw the adjustable feet so that they do not
touch the support surface.
4. Close and fix door with adhesive tape and,
again using adhesive tape, fix the power cable to
the appliance.
POWER FAILURE
In the event of a power failure, call the local office of
your electricity supply company and ask how long it
is going to last.
Note: Bear in mind that a full appliance will stay cold
longer than a partially filled one.
If ice crystals are still visible on the food, it may be
frozen again, although flavour and aroma may be
affected.
If food is found to be in a poor condition, it is best
to throw it away.
For power failures lasting up to 24 hours.
Keep the door of the appliance closed. This will
allow the stored food to stay cold as long as
possible.
For power failures lasting more than 24 hours.
Empty the freezer compartment and arrange the
food in a portable freezer. If this type of freezer is
not available and, likewise, no artificial ice packs are
available, try to use up the food, which is more
easily perishable.
Empty the ice tray.

Performance problems often result from little things
you can find and fix yourself without tools of any
kind.

Sounds coming from your appliances are normal
since it has a number of fans and engines to
regulate performances that switch on and off
automatically.
SOME OF THE FUNCTIONAL SOUNDS CAN BE
REDUCED THROUGH:
› Leveling the appliance and installing it on an even
surface.
› Checking if the internal components are correctly
placed.
› Separating and avoiding contact between the
appliance and furniture.
› Checking if bottles and containers are not in
contactwith each other.
SOME OF THE FUNCTIONAL SOUNDS
YOU MIGHT HEAR
A hissing sound when switching
on the appliance for the first time
or after a long pause.
A gurgling sound when
refrigerant fluid enters into the
pipes.
BRRR sound is from the
compressor running.
Buzzing sound when water valve
or fan start working.
A cracking sound when
compressor starts.
The CLICK is from the thermostat
which adjusts how often the
compressor is running.
