Food Storage

General storage advise and tips
9.1
Your Aga refrigerator unit is designed to ensure precise, constant
temperatures and appropriate humidity levels in all compartments.
In addition, the double refrigeration ensures that frozen foods and ice
do not absorb the odour of fresh foods and that the humidity in the
refrigerator does not freeze and build up frost.
Nevertheless, to properly conserve all of your foods, it is not enough
to have an excellent refrigerator. It is also necessary to know the rules
for correct food storage.
Fridge
from +2° to +8 °C
(from 35,6°F to 46,4°F)
Do bear in mind that all foods will inevitably change their characteristics
over time. This change begins long before it is consumed, since foods
contain micro organisms which multiply and can cause deterioration.
This process occurs more rapidly due to inappropriate handling, storage
temperatures and humidity levels.
It is therefore recommended to follow the advice and tips below which
will permit using your refrigerator/freezer in the most rational and safe
manner and keep your foods in the best way for as long as possible.
FRESCO
Fresco
from -2° to +2 °C
(from 28,4°F to 35,6°F)
Freezer
from -15° to -22 °C
(from 5°F to -7,6°F)
Please bear in mind that the Fresco area is the area for conserving
the most delicate fresh foods, since it ensures constant average
temperature below or equal to 0°C (32°F).
Periodically check that all foods remain in good condition. It is
usually quite clear when a food item has deteriorated, due to mould,
unpleasant odours and its general unpleasant aspect. Nevertheless,
there are cases in which these conditions are not so evident. If you
believe that a food item was kept for an excessive period of time and
may have deteriorated, do not consume this item or even taste it, even
if it seems to still be healthy, since the bacteria that cause deterioration
of food can also cause poisoning and illness.
When in doubt, throw the food away.
How to maintain good food quality
When buying groceries
When stocking the appliance
9.2
Always take the following precautions:
Place any packages of raw meat, fish or poultry in plastic bags
so that they do not drip on other foods.
Purchase meat, poultry and fish last. Do not leave your groceries
in a warm car after shopping. Keep a freezer bag in your car and use it
in case of very high temperatures or long trips.
Check the production dates and “best before” dates on foods to be
sure that they are fresh.
Be very careful when buying fresh foods, and only buy a quantity
that can be consumed in a week.
Leave warm foods at room temperature for at least two hours
before placing them in the refrigerator, unless you have activated the
Shopping function before.
Check the refrigeration temperature of the various compartments
on the control panel:
The refrigerator temperature must be 8°C (45°F) or lower
and the freezer temperature must be -18°C (0°F)
Follow the recommendations regarding the storage times
and temperatures indicated in the tables to follow.
Keep raw meat, fish and poultry separate from other foods
and avoid any possible drippings.

Food Storage
When stocking the appliance
When preparing food
When cooking food
Storing and using leftovers
20
When placing in the refrigerator your meat, fish or poultry, leave these
in their original packaging, unless the packaging is ripped or punctured.
Repeated manipulation could introduce bacteria into these foods.
To keep food in the freezer it is a good idea to use freezer containers,
with plastic freezer bags or aluminium foil around the freezer containers
if you intend to conserve the food for more than two months. This will
minimize dehydration and quality deterioration
Label and date the packages
To keep foods in the refrigerator, wrap these in plastic film or deposit
them in plastic containers or vacuum packed containers to avoid
drying. Always mark with the date the packages or containers.
Be careful to correctly position the food items on the shelves in a way
that does not obstruct the air circulation vents inside the compartment.
Wash all items that have come in contact with food
Carefully wash hands before and after contact with food
Sterilise containers, utensils and kitchen tools that have come into
contact with meat, fish and poultry.
Sterilise sponges used to wash kitchenware weekly.
Use plastic gloves if you have a hand condition.
Defrost foods in the refrigerator or in the microwave oven,
not on the countertop. If you use a microwave oven to defrost food,
cook the food immediately.
Marinate food only in the refrigerator.
Rinse fish and poultry before cooking.
Avoid contamination when preparing dishes. Keep raw meat, fish,
poultry and their liquids away from other food items.
For example, do not use the same surface or the same utensils for
preparing meat, fish, poultry and vegetables.
Keep your cutting boards perfectly clean, whether wood or plastic.
Wash these with soap and warm water, and rinse with a diluted
disinfecting solution.
Do not taste raw or partially cooked meat, poultry, fish and eggs.
Cook meat at a temperature of 75°C (167°F) or higher.
For cuts of meat over 5 cm, use a meat thermometer to check the
temperature. For thinner cuts of meat, to check if it is cooked, check
the colour of the juice and whether it is clear or pink.
If you are cooking meat which is not yet defrosted, increase
the cooking time one and half times the normal duration.
Bear in mind that roasted meat and poultry, when cooked
in the oven, need temperatures of 160°C (320°F) or higher.
Cook the egg whites and yolks until they are well done.
Do not use the same containers that have contained raw or partially
cooked eggs.
If your oven or microwave is equipped with a probe for temperature
control, use it.
Keep leftovers in the refrigerator or in the freezer in small closed
containers. Before placing them in the refrigerator, make sure that they
have cooled off. Leave at least two hours after cooking and make sure
that there is adequate air circulation around the container, so that the
food can cool off quickly.
Date leftover containers and use them within the recommended time.
Completely cover and heat leftovers before serving.
Boil sauces and soups. Consume leftovers after they have been
heated to a temperature of at least 75°C (167°F).
If you think the food is no longer fit for consumption, then dispose of it.

Recommendations for storing fresh food
9.3
Wash vegetables in cold water and dry well. Place vegetables
in sealed containers, or vegetable bags in the Fresco drawers.
Wash and dry fresh fruit. Pack very aromatic fruit in plastic bags. Fruit
should be placed in the high humidity Fresco compartment.
Place in the refrigerator in its original packaging.
After opening, wrap the remaining food in plastic bags or aluminium foil.
Remove the original packaging, then put in plastic bags or containers
and immediately place in the refrigerator.
Eggs
Place the eggs in their box in the refrigerator without washing them.
Check the “best before” date and use the eggs within two weeks of
purchasing.
Milk, cream and fresh cheeses
These should be kept in their original sealed packaging. Place these
on refrigerator shelves and consume within five days of purchase.
Cheeses
Place these in the Fresco drawer in their original packaging. Once
opened, store these hermetically in plastic bags or aluminium foil.
Leftovers
Let these cool off and cover hermetically with aluminium foil or place
in sealed containers to prevent drying or the spread of odours.
Recommendations for storing frozen food
Frozen food
Ice cream
9.4
Place food in plastic bags for the freezer. These bags must be
hermetically sealed against air and humidity.
Do not refreeze defrosted meat.
The firmness of ice cream depends on the quantity of cream that
it contains. In general, high-quality ice cream has large amounts of
cream, therefore a very low temperature in the freezer will be necessary
to maintain its firmness. Unfirm ice cream is not necessarily
an indication of a temperature problem.
After a prolonged interruption of electrical
power, once the electrical power is reactivated,
a sound signal indicates that the temperature has
raised above normal levels. In addition to this the
display will visualise for one minute the highest
temperature detected inside the compartments,
to allow the user to decide how to better use the
food items.
After one minute the display will resume normal

Care and Cleaning
11
Care and Cleaning 11.1
To clean the stainless steel parts use e-cloth and the sponge provided in
the kit with this appliance.
Do not use the sponges on aluminium parts, for example, the door
handles and the glass shelves trims.
Carefully follow the detailed directions that can
be found in the provided kit and never use
abrasive or metallic products which could scratch
and permanently damage the painted parts.
Prior to carry out any cleaning operation turn
off the unit.
Condenser cleaning 11.2
1
2
Cleaning the condenser is not normally necessary in a home
environment. If it should become necessary, switch off the appliance
by pressing the Unit button
on the main command panel for
approximately 3 seconds.
In models with ventilation at the base, remove the protection grille on the base
of the appliance after having unscrewed the mounting screws.
In models with ventilation in the upper part of the appliance, remove
the protection grille mounted with pressure hooks by pulling it outward.
In some cases you may need to free the grille from the hooks by prising
it off from the top as illustrated. Use a flat blade screwdriver, and to
avoid damages or scratches to the grille, wrap some protective tape
around the tool’s end.
Wait approximately 30 minutes until the condenser has reached
room temperature. Remove the upper or lower front ventilation grill
(depending on the model) and use a soft brush or vacuum cleaner
to remove any dust deposits as illustrated, being careful not to cause
damage.
Take care to also clean the filter which is located behind the front
ventilation grille.
The condenser fins are sharp, therefore use adequate protection for the hands and arms when
cleaning the condenser.
Internal cleaning 11.3
Clean the internal and removable parts by washing them with a solution
of tepid water, a small amount of dishwashing detergent and a pinch
of baking soda.
Do not use water on the electrical parts, lights
and control panel.
Rinse and dry right away.
It is highly recommended not to use mechanical devices ot other
means to speed up the defrosting process.
Do not bring cold glass parts into contact with
boiling water.
Do not wash any parts of the refrigerator in a
dishwashing machine since this could damage
or irreparably deform the parts.

12 Troubleshooting Guide
12.1 Troubleshooting Guide
If you notice malfunctions in your appliance, use this guide before
calling for service: this guide can help you personally resolve
the problem or could provide important information to be conveyed to
the service technician to ensure rapid and effective repair.
“Call Service” message
The refrigerator or the freezer does not work
The refrigerator or the freezer
is warmer than usual
The appliance remains in function
for a long time period
If you hear unusual noises
Condensation inside and outside
of the refrigerator
Is the appliance connected to the electrical power supply?
Is electrical power available at the electricity socket?
Is the on/off button
activated?
Does the display show a malfunction code?
Is the temperature adjusted correctly?
Were the doors or drawers open for a long period of time?
Were large quantities of food recently inserted?
Bear in mind that during very hot weather and with very high
temperatures in the room it is normal that the compressor remains on
for prolonged periods of time.
Were the doors or drawers open for a long period of time?
Were large quantities of food recently inserted?
Check that the doors are closed and that the food or containers
do not obstruct the perfect closure of the door.
It is normal to hear noises from the ventilators or compressors during
operation or during the defrost phase.
Noise could be more marked depending on the position
of the appliance and the surrounding environment.
If the climate is very humid, the formation of condensation is normal.
Opening the door or drawers for prolonged periods of time can
contribute to the formation of condensation.
In any case, make sure that the doors are always perfectly closed.
Ice or frost build up inside the refrigerator
or freezer
Did you leave the doors open for a long period of time?
Do the doors close perfectly?
If the doors do not close perfectly, contact your installer.
In case of frost or ice build up in the Fresco compartment, due to
frequent and prolonged opening of the doors, deactivate the Fresco
function for a while via the button on the control panel. Wait until the
frost or ice melts, then remove the drawer and dry the sides and bottom
of the compartment.
Unpleasant odours inside the refrigerator
Clean the appliance completely according to the instructions.
Hermetically cover all the food. Do not conserve food for prolonged
periods of time.
The doors are difficult to open
24
A malfunction is usually indicated by a message on the display.
Problems that cannot be solved by the user are signaled through
a malfunction code and the message “Call Service”.
The appliance is designed to ensure a fully hermetic closure. When
the door is closed, a vacuum condition can occur: in this case it is
necessary to wait a few seconds until the pressure balances before
opening the door.
Troubleshooting Guide
The Ice Maker does not work
The Ice Maker does not produce
sufficient amounts of ice
The ice cubes freeze into one block
The ice has an unusual flavour or colour
Make sure that the Ice Maker is on (Icemaker button
on).
To switch on the Ice Maker press the button.
Make sure that the appliance is connected to the water supply.
On average, the Ice Maker produces approximately 10 cubes of ice
every two hours.
If the ice is not used frequently, it is possible that blocks of ice may form.
It is recommended to remove the block of ice cubes and then let the
Ice Maker fill the ice tray again.
When the Ice Maker is started for the first time, it is recommended to
empty the first full tray of ice cubes.
If the refrigerator was switched off for more than one month or if the
cartridge was not changed for more than six months, it could be
necessary to replace the filter cartridge.
Contact a plumber or a water treatment expert to make sure that the
problem is not due to the water supply.
