Start-up and use

Starting the appliance

! After transportation of the appliance, carefully place it in an upright position and wait at least 3 hours before connecting it to the electricity mains, to make sure it operates as it should.

• Clean the inside of the refrigerator well using warm water and bicarbonate of soda before placing food inside it.

• The appliance comes with a motor protection control system which makes the compressor start approximately 8 minutes after being switched on. The compressor also starts each time the power supply is cut off whether voluntarily or involuntarily (blackout).

Freezer Compartment

When the product is switched on the freezer compartment is set to its default value of -18°C. We recommend that the SUPER FREEZE function is set (the freezer status bar continues to display the set value) in order to accelerate the cooling process of the compartment; when the inside of the compartment has reached its optimal temperature the function will be deactivated and the food may be placed inside.

Refrigerator Compartment

When the appliance is switched on the refrigerator compartment is set to its default value of +5°C. We recommend that the SUPER COOL function is set (the refrigerator status bar continues to display the set value) in order to accelerate the cooling process of the compartment.

After a few hours it will be cool enough for food to be placed inside.

Navigating the display

Setting the temperatures:

If the product is switched on, the refrigerator and freezer compartment displays will indicate the temperature values set at that moment. To change them, simply press the - and + buttons corresponding to the compartment for which you wish to change the set temperature. More specifically, each time the buttons are pressed, the temperature increases or decreases and the level of cold generated inside the compartment is adjusted accordingly. The temperature values that may be selected for the refrigerator compartment are +8°C, +7°C,

+6°C, +5°C, +4°C, +3°C and +2°C, while the values that may be set for the freezer are -18°C, -19°C, -20°C, -21°C, -22°C, -24°C and -

26°C.

When the “ECO” function is active, the appliance automatically adjusts the temperatures according to the conditions inside and outside the refrigerator, in order to minimise the amount of energy consumed; the activation of this function is signalled by the ECO LED on the keypad lighting up.

When the HOLIDAY function is active the temperature may not be adjusted, however the appliance adjusts itself automatically so that the optimal settings for the situation are used: +12°C for the refrigerator compartment and -18°C for the freezer compartment. The activation of this function is indicated by the HOLIDAY LED lighting up.

To activate and deactivate the functions, simply press the relevant button; the function status will be signalled by the corresponding LED on the keypad switching on or off.

Several of the functions (SUPER COOL, SUPER FREEZE, ICE PARTY,

ECO ) are incompatible with others (HOLIDAY,...); remember that there is a pre-established order of priority which will help you to operate the product in the best possible way.

When the ICE PARTY function has finished, press the ICE PARTY button to stop the corresponding LED from flashing and to silence the sound alert. The flashing and sound alerts indicate that the function is complete and that the bottle should be removed from the freezer compartment.

Child Lock

To activate the Child Lock function, press and hold the Child Lock button for 2 seconds; the activation of this button lock is confirmed by a short beep and the illumination of the corresponding LED on the keypad. To deactivate the function, press and hold the Child Lock button for 2 seconds; deactivation will be confirmed by a short beep and by the corresponding LED switching off.

Chiller system

No Frost

GB

The No Frost system circulates cold air continuously to collect humidity and prevent ice and frost formation. The system maintains an optimal humidity level in the compartment, preserving the original quality of the food, preventing the food from sticking together and making defrosting a thing of the past. Do not block the aeration cells by placing food or containers in direct contact with the refrigerating back panel. Close bottles and wrap food tightly.

Using the refrigerator to its full potential

• Adjust the temperature using the display.

• Activate the SUPER COOL function to lower the temperature quickly, for example, when you place a large number of new food items inside a fridge and the internal temperature rises slightly. This function quickly cools the groceries by temporarily reducing the temperature until it reaches the ideal level.

• Place only cold or lukewarm foods in the compartment, never hot foods (see Precautions and tips).

• Remember that cooked foods do not last longer than raw foods.

• Do not store liquids in open containers: they will increase the level of humidity in the refrigerator and cause condensation to form.

SHELVES: with or without grill.

Due to the special guides the shelves are removable and the height is adjustable (

see diagram

), allowing easy storage of large containers and food. Height can be adjusted without complete removal of the shelf.

TEMPERATURE Indicator light

*

: to identify the coldest area in the refrigerator.

1. Check that OK appears clearly on the indicator light (

see diagram

).

GB

2. If the word “OK” does not appear it means that the temperature is too high: adjust the REFRIGERATOR OPERATION knob to a higher position (colder) and wait approximately 10 hours until the temperature has been stabilised.

3. Check the indicator light again: if necessary, readjust it following the initial process. If large quantities of food have been added or if the refrigerator door has been opened frequently, it is normal for the indicator not to show OK. Wait at least 10 hours before adjusting the REFRIGERATOR OPERATION knob to a higher setting.

FRESH BOX

*

This is the new box to keep meat, fish and cheese fresh.

When positioned in the “lower” part of the fridge compartment, it is ideal for meat and fish; when moved to the “top” part of the fridge, it is perfect for cheese.

It can be taken out of the fridge when it is not needed.

Using the freezer to its full potential

• Adjust the temperature using the display.

• To freeze fresh food in the best and safest way possible, activate the SUPER FREEZE function 24 hours before placing the food in the freezer. After placing the food inside, activate the SUPER

FREEZE function again; it will be deactivated automatically after

24 hours.

• Fresh food that needs to be frozen must not come into contact with food that has already been defrosted. Fresh food must be stored in the top FREEZER and STORAGE compartment where the temperature drops below -18°C and guarantees rapid freezing.

• Do not re-freeze food that is defrosting or that has already been defrosted. These foods must be cooked and eaten (within 24 hours).

• Do not place glass bottles which contain liquids, and which are corked or hermetically sealed in the freezer because they could break.

• The maximum quantity of food that may be frozen daily is indicated on the plate containing the technical properties located on the bottom left side of the refrigerator compartment (for example: Kg/

24h: 4).

!

Do not open the door during freezing.

!

If there is a power cut or malfunction, do not open the freezer door.

This will help maintain the temperature inside the freezer, ensuring that foods are conserved for at least 9 -14 hours.

!

to avoid blocking the air circulation inside the freezer compartment, it is advisable not to obstruct the ventilation holes with food or containers.

Ice 3 ice tray

The fact that they are situated on the top part of the freezer drawers ensures greater cleanliness: the ice no longer comes into contact with the food placed inside the freezer compartment; furthermore, the dripping of the water during filling is avoided (a lid to cover up the hole after filling with water is also provided).

1. Pull out the tray by pushing it up. Check that the tray is ompletely empty and fill it with water through the opening provided.

2. Take care not to exceed the level indicated (MAX WATER LEVEL).

Excess water prevents the ice cubes from dispensing (if this happens, wait for the ice to melt and empty the tray).

3. Turn the tray 90°: due to the connected compartments each mould fills with water (

see diagram

).

4. Close the opening with the lid provided and put the tray back, placing the top part in the corresponding housing and allowing it to drop in again.

5. When the ice has formed (minimum time approximately 8 hours) knock the tray against a hard surface and wet the outside so that the ice cubes come loose and take them out through the opening.
