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
FREEZING FRESH FOOD
ICE-CUBE PRODUCTION
The freezer compartment is suitable for
freezing fresh food and storing frozen and
deep-frozen food for a long time.
To freeze fresh food activate the Fast
Freeze function at least 24 hours before
placing the food to be frozen in the freezer
compartment.
Place the fresh food to be frozen in the two
top compartments.
The maximum amount of food that can be
frozen in 24 hours is specified on the rating plate, a label located on the inside of
the appliance.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours: during
this period do not add other food to be frozen.
After 24 hours, when the freezing process
is completed, return to the required temperature (see "Temperature regulation").
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.
STORAGE OF FROZEN FOOD
When first starting-up or after a period out
of use, before putting the products in the
compartment let the appliance run at least
2 hours on the higher settings.
In the event of accidental defrosting, for example due to a power
failure, if the power has been off for
longer than the value shown in the
technical characteristics chart under "rising time", the defrosted food
must be consumed quickly or
cooked immediately and then refrozen (after cooling).
THAWING
Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being
used, can be thawed at room temperature.
Small pieces may even be cooked still frozen, directly from the freezer: in this case,
cooking will take longer.
COLD ACCUMULATORS
The freezer contains at least one cold accumulator which increases storage time in
the event of a power cut or breakdown.
Do not use metallic instruments to
remove the trays from the freezer.
ENGLISH
HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
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;
• 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
BEFORE FIRST USE
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.
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
warm water and bicarbonate of soda (5
ml to 0,5 liter of water)
• 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.
Once a year remove the ventilation grill at
the base of the appliance and clean the air
channels with a vacuum cleaner. This operation will improve the performance of the
appliance and save electricity consumption.
CAUTION!
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 FREEZER
The freezer compartment of this model, on
the other hand, is a "no frost" type. This
means that there is no buildup of frost
when it is in operation, neither on the internal walls nor on the foods.
The absence of frost is due to the continuous circulation of cold air inside the compartment, driven by an automatically controlled fan.
