First use
7
• the location of the appliance.
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.
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.
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.
Positioning the door shelves
To permit storage of food packages of various sizes, the door shelves can be placed at
different heights.
Frozen Food Calendar
The symbols show different types of frozen goods.
8
Helpful hints and tips
The numbers indicate storage times in months for the appropriate types of frozen goods.
Whether the upper or lower value of the indicated storage time is valid depends on the
quality of the foods and treating before freezing.
Ice-cube production
This appliance is equipped with one or more trays for the production of ice-cubes. Fill
these trays with water, then put them in the freezer compartment.
Do not use metallic instruments to remove the trays from the freezer.
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
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;
Care and cleaning
9
• 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.
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.
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 operation will improve the performance of the appliance
and save electricity consumption.
10
Care and cleaning
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.
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.
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.
About 12 hours prior to defrosting, set the Temperature regulator toward higher settings , in order to build up sufficient chill reserve for the interruption in operation.
To remove the frost, follow the instructions below:
1. Switch off the appliance.
2. Remove any stored food, wrap it in several layers of newspaper and put it in a cool
place.
CAUTION!
Do not touch frozen goods with wet hands. Hands can freeze to the goods.
3. Leave the door open .
In order to speed up the defrosting process, place a pot of warm water in the freezer
compartment. In addition, remove pieces of ice that break away before defrosting is complete.
What to do if…
11
4. When defrosting is completed, dry the interior thoroughly.
5. Switch on the appliance.
6. After two or three hours, 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.
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
