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 temperature inside the fridge
• A suitable temperature inside the fridge is
approx. +5° C. It is normal with higher temperature in the top of the fridge and lower
temperature in the lower part. If the temperature regulator is set to a cold temperature, the ambient temperature is high or
if the fridge is fully loaded the compressor
will run for a longer time. This results in
colder temperature in the lower part of the
fridge due to the cold air that falls down. It
may result in that food with high water
content start to freeze. If too cold, change
to a higher temperature setting.
Important! Do not place any shelves
towards the water drain hole. This can result
in too cold temperatures.
• If you want to check the temperature of
food stored in the refrigerator, place a
glass of water centrally in the cabinet, and
put a proper thermometer with an accuracy of +/– 1 °C into it. After 6 hours the
temperature can be monitored. The measuring shall be performed under steady-stated conditions (without changing the load).

• 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 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;
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.

3. Vacuum clean under the cabinet.
Defrosting 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 drain hole 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.
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.
To remove the frost, follow the instructions
below:
• switch off the appliance and pull out the
plug from the wall socket
• remove any stored food, wrap it in several
layers of newspaper and put it in a cool
place
• remove the freezer drawers
• put insulating material around the drawers,
e.g. blankets or newspapers.
Defrosting can be accelerated by placing
bowls with hot water (not boiling) inside the
freezer.
• Loosen the drainage channel from its resting position, push it in according to the illustration and place it in the bottom freezer
drawer where water can collect
• carefully scrape off the ice when it starts to
thaw. Use a wood or a plastic scraper
• when all the ice has melted, clean and wipe
the cabinet dry, then put the drainage
channel back in place.
