HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
Normal Operating Sounds
• You may hear a faint gurgling and a bubbling sound when the refrigerant is pumped
through the coils or tubing. This is correct.
• When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being pumped around and you will hear a
whirring sound and a pulsating noise from the compressor. This is correct.
• The thermic dilatation might cause a sudden cracking noise. It is natural, not dangerous
physical phenomenon. This is correct.
Hints for energy saving
To obtain the best performance:
• do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than absolutely necessary
• do not remove the cold accumulators from the freezer basket.
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
14
Helpful hints and tips
• 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;
• 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

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. This operation will improve the performance of the appliance and save electricity
consumption.
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.
16
What to do if…
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:
• pull out the plug from the wall socket or switch off the appliance
• 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.
• switch on the cabinet and replace the frozen foodstuff.
It is recommended to operate the appliance at the highest position of the thermostatic
control for some hours so that it can reach the sufficient storing temperature as soon
as possible.
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.
