Conservation of wines
9
General directions
9.1
As is known, wine can be stored for long periods of time if this is done
under the following conditions:
Suitable temperature without appreciable variations over time
Controlled level of humidity
Protection from light
Absence of noise and vibrations
Absence of odours
Bottle kept horizontal.
All of these conditions are fully met in the Aga Wine Cellar.
Conservation temperature
9.2
The space offered by the Cantina and Riserva compartments, which
can be expanded as necessary by using the TriMode compartment
as a wine cellar, allows conservation at three different temperatures
of your best wines.
Riserva
Cantina
The three compartments are initially set to the following
temperatures:
Riserva compartment
+12° C (53.6° F) - adjustable from +8° C to +18° C (from 46.4° F to 53.6° F)
Cantina compartment
+10° C (50° F) - adjustable from +4° C to +18° C (from 39.2° F to 53.6° F)
TriMode
Models with Riserva and Cantina
TriMode drawer
-18° (0° F) - adjustable from -15° C to -22° C (from 5° F to -7.6° F)
(freezer mode)
To transform the TriMode compartment into a wine cellar space, you
must access the menu, set it as a refrigerator compartment, and adjust
it to a temperature between +4° C and +8° C (from 39.2° F to 46.4° F).
All of the temperatures can be modified according to the
characteristics of the wines and personal preferences. However,
you should attempt to keep the temperature as constant as possible
over time.
Cantina
Rapid and large-scale temperature variations can in fact cause
dilation of the liquid and early aging of the wine.
You should also avoid very low temperatures (below 4° C - 39.2°
F ) which may lead to the formation of deposits and damage the
aesthetic qualities of the wine.
TriMode
All of the compartments offer optimal conditions and take into
account all of these needs. It should however be noted that the
Riserva compartment, in particular, is thermostatically controlled in a
very precise manner and ensures the utmost care and attention over
time of your most prized bottles.

Conservation of wines
Time of conservation
Improvement of wine over time and its duration usually depends on the
character of the variety and its type.
The following chart shows the best period of conservation and aging
for various types in ideal conservation conditions offered by your
appliance.
However, you should always follow the instructions of the manufacturer,
especially for fine wines.

Consumption temperature
As a general rule, white wines should be served at a temperature
between 10 and 12° C and red wines between 12 and 14° C.
Some wines may however be best enjoyed at higher or lower
temperatures.
You should also keep in mind that, during the summer, wine is generally
enjoyed at lower temperatures than during the winter.
You should also consider the following:
18
White wines
White wines are normally not served at high temperatures, since they
are generally more acidic that red wines and not very tannic. Therefore
they are more enjoyable at low temperatures.
It is preferable to serve these wines between 10° C and 14° C. Young,
fresh and aromatic wines can also be served at 10° C, while less
aromatic ones are served at 12° C.
Temperatures between 12° C and 14° C are for soft, mature white wines
that have been aged for some years in the bottle.
Higher temperatures would favour the exaltation of the sweet character
of the wine, at the expense of the acidity and flavour, which are
considered pleasant and desirable characteristics of this type of wine.
Rosé
Rosé wine is served at the same temperature as white wines. It should
be noted that these wines may include a certain amount of tannin and
may therefore be preferable at higher temperatures. Therefore, they are
served between 10° C and 12° C, if young and fresh, and between
12° C and 14° C if robust and mature.
Conservation of wines
New wines (Vin Nouveau)
Red wines
Sparkling wines
Liqueur and straw wines
9
Due to the special processing they undergo, new vintage wines contain
a low tannin content and are therefore more enjoyable if served
between 12° C and 14° C.
Since they contain more tannin and are less acidic, red wines are
normally served at higher temperatures.
Younger wines with less tannin are normally served between 14° C and
16° C, while more full-bodied ones that are more tannic may be served
at up to 18° C. Some wines that have aged for years in the bottle, still
full-bodies and tannic, may be served at 18° C or even 20° C.
Young red wines with little tannin and slightly structured may be
enjoyable at lower temperatures, between 12° C and 14° C.
It is difficult to provide instructions to cover the wide variety of sparkling
wines in existence.
As a general rule, sweeter and more aromatic sparkling wines should
be served at lower temperatures, down to 8° C, whereas more tannic
sparkling wines may be served at higher temperatures, up to 14° C.
Dry sparkling wines are usually served between 8° C and 10° C.
“Classic” sparkling wines are normally served at these temperatures,
which may be as high as 12° C for sparkling wines that have been aged
for some time.
It is however advisable, especially for finer wines, to follow the
suggestions and recommendations of the manufacturer on the bottle.
These types of wines can be served at temperatures between 16° C
and 18° C, depending on personal tastes, to attenuate the sweet taste
of straw wines, it can also be served at 10° C.
Position of bottles
9.5
The sliding shelves are made of fine natural wood (solid beech) and
contoured so as to hold bottles of the most classical traditional shape or
of the most modern design.
To prevent the release of odours or the transfer of non-natural
substances to the wine, the wood has not been treated with any
sort of paint. This allows the wood to breathe in harmony with the
cork of the bottles and to contribute to balancing the humidity in the
compartment. It also ensures perfect balance of the temperature in the
bottle itself.
Whether your collection holds fine bouteilles or petit bouteilles, they will
be right at home in the Aga Wine Cellar. A special accessory, available
on request, will let you place them in an inclined position, in order to
display the labels of your most prized items.
Also Magnum bouteilles can be stored, provided you remove the shelf
just above the one that will hold them.
If the TriMode compartment is also used as a wine cellar, the bottles
may be kept in a horizontal position, as long as they do not move
or touch one another. A special accessory for this purpose may be
provided on request.

10 Food Conservation
10.1 Recommendations for conserving fresh food
Vegetables
Wash vegetables in cold water and dry well. Place vegetables
in vacuum packed containers, plastic containers or vegetable bags.
Fruit
Wash and dry fresh fruit. Pack very aromatic fruit in plastic bags. Fruit
should be placed in the low humidity Fresco compartment.
Packaged meat
Place in the refrigerator in its original packaging.
After opening, wrap the remaining food in plastic bags or aluminum foil.
Fresh meat, fish and poultry
Remove the original packaging, then put in plastic bags or containers
and immediately place in the refrigerator.
Eggs
Place the eggs in their package or container into the refrigerator
without washing them. Check the “best used within” date and at any
rate use the eggs within two weeks of purchasing.
Milk, cream and fresh cheeses
These should be kept in their original closed packaging. Place these
on refrigerator shelves and consume these within five days of purchase.
Cheeses
Place these in the refrigerator in their original packaging. Once opened,
close these hermetically in plastic bags or aluminum foil.
Leftovers
Let these cool off and cover hermetically with aluminum foil or place
in sealed containers to prevent drying or the spread of odors.
10.2 Recommendations for conserving frozen food
Frozen food
After a prolonged power outage,
when the power comes back on, a sound signal
will let you know that the temperature is above
what is best suited for conservation. These
temperatures are shown for one minute on the
display. This makes its possible for the user to
decide how best to use the conserved foods.
After one minute, the displays will start working
normally again, while the Alarm key
will
continue to flash. Touch the
Alarm key
to again view the highest recorded
temperatures.
20
Place food in plastic bags for the freezer. These bags must be
hermetically sealed against air and humidity.
Do not refreeze defrosted meat.

12 Care and Cleaning
12.1 Care and Cleaning
To clean the parts in steel use a microfiber cloth and the sponge
provided in the kit with the appliance.
Every now and then, to make to steel shiny, wipe with a slightly damp
microfiber cloth.
Scrupulously follow the detailed directions that
can be found in the provided kit and never use
abrasive or metallic products which could scratch
and damage the finishing on the appliance
permanently.
Do not use the sponge on aluminium parts, such as the handles and the
profiles of the glass shelves. You should use special care to keep free of
obstructions the ventilation openings in the appliance or in the cabinet
that houses it.
Before performing any sort of cleaning, disconnect
the appliance from the electrical power supply.
Make sure you do not damage the refrigerant
circuit in any way.
12.2 Condenser cleaning
Cleaning the condenser is not generally necessary in normal conditions
of use. If it should become necessary, turn off the appliance by pressing
the Unit key
on the main control panel for approximately 3 seconds.
In models with ventilation, remove the protection grill 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 pressure mounted protection grille by pulling it outwards.
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 shown, being careful not to cause
damage.
Also clean the filter located behind the front ventilation grill.
The edges of the condenser are sharp, therefore
use adequate protection for the hands and arms
when cleaning the condenser.
12.3 Internal cleaning
Clean the internal and removable parts by washing them with a solution
of lukewarm 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.
Do not use mechanical devices or other methods to speed up
defrosting.
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.

Troubleshooting guide
Troubleshooting guide

13.1
If you notice malfunctions in your appliance, use this guide before
calling Service. This guide may help you resolve the problem yourself
or could provide important information to ensure rapid and effective
service.
Message “Call Service”
A malfunction is usually indicated on the display.
Problems that cannot be resolved by the user are signalled through a
malfunction code and the message “Call Service”.
The appliance does not work
Is the appliance connected to the electrical power supply?
Does electrical power arrive at the electrical socket?
Is the Unit key
activated?
Is the condenser clean?
The internal temperatures are
higher than normal
Does the display show a malfunction code?
Is the temperature adjusted correctly?
Is the condenser clean?
Were the doors or drawers open for a long period of time?
Were large quantities of food recently inserted?
The appliance remains in function for a long
time period
Bear in mind that during a very hot weather and with very high
temperatures in the room it is normal that the compressor remains in
operation for prolonged periods of time.
Were the doors or drawers open for a long period of time?
Were large quantities of food recently inserted?
Is the condenser clean?
Check that the doors are closed and that the food or containers do not
obstruct the perfect closure of the door.
If you hear strange noises
It is normal to hear noise from the fans or compressors during the
defrost phase.
Noise could be louder depending on the position of the appliance and
the surrounding environment.
Condensation forms both inside and out
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.
The Refrigerator or Freezer has frost or ice
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.
Unpleasant odours inside the refrigerator
Clean the appliance completely as indicated in this manual.
Hermetically cover all the food. Do not conserve food for prolonged
periods of time.
The doors are difficult to open
The appliance was designed to permit hermetic closure. When the door is
closed, a vacuum situation can occur: in this case it is necessary to wait a
few seconds until the pressure balances before opening the door.
