4. FIRST USE
4.1 Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first
time, the interior and all internal
accessories should be washed with
lukewarm water and some neutral soap
to remove the typical smell of a brandnew product, then dried thoroughly.
CAUTION!
Do not use detergents or
abrasive powders, as these
will damage the finish.
5. DAILY USE
WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
5.1 Positioning the door
shelves
To permit storage of food packages of
various sizes, the door shelves can be
placed at different heights.
1. Gradually pull the shelf in the
direction of the arrows until it comes
free.
2. Reposition as required.
5.2 Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped
with a series of runners so that the
shelves can be positioned as desired.
For better use of space, the front halfshelves (A) can be placed under the rear
ones. (B)

www.electrolux.com
Do not move the glass shelf
above the vegetable drawer
and the bottle shelf to
ensure correct air circulation.
5.3 Humidity control
The glass shelf incorporates a device
with slits (adjustable by means of a
sliding lever), which makes it possible to
regulate the humidity in the vegetable
drawer(s).
5.4 FreeStore
The refrigerator compartment is
equipped with a device that allows for
rapid cooling of foods and more uniform
temperature in the compartment.
This device activates by itself when
needed, for example for a quick
temperature recovering after door
opening or when the ambient
temperature is high.
It is possible to switch on the
device manually when
needed (refer to "FreeStore
mode").
When the ventilation slots are closed:
the natural moisture content of the food
in the fruit and vegetable compartments
is preserved for longer.
The FreeStore device stops
when the door is open and
restarts immediately after
the door closing.
When the ventilation slots are opened:
more air circulation results in a lower air
moisture content in the fruit and
vegetable compartments.
6. HINTS AND TIPS
6.1 Normal operating sounds
6.2 Hints for energy saving
The following sounds are normal during
operation:
•
•
•
•
•
A faint gurgling and bubbling sound
from coils sound when refrigerant is
pumped.
A whirring and pulsating sound from
the compressor when refrigerant is
pumped.
A sudden cracking noise from inside
appliance caused by thermic dilatation
(a natural and not dangerous physical
phenomenon).
A faint click noise from the
temperature regulator when the
compressor switches on or off.
Do not open the door frequently or
leave it open longer than absolutely
necessary.
6.3 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
position food so that air can circulate
freely around it
ENGLISH
6.4 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.
•
•
9
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.
Bottles: these need a cap and should
be stored on the door bottle shelf, or
(if equipped) on the bottle rack.
Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic,
if not packed, must not be kept in the
refrigerator.
7. CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
7.1 General warnings

This appliance contains
hydrocarbons in its cooling
unit; maintenance and
recharging must therefore
only be carried out by
authorized technicians.
The accessories and parts of
the appliance are not
suitable for washing in a
dishwasher.
7.2 Periodic cleaning
CAUTION!
Do not pull, move or damage
any pipes and/or cables
inside the cabinet.
CAUTION!
Take care of not to damage
the cooling system.
CAUTION!
When moving the cabinet, lift
it by the front edge to avoid
scratching the floor.

with lukewarm water and some
neutral soap.
2. Regularly check the door seals and
wipe clean to ensure they are clean
and free from debris.
3. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
4. If accessible, clean the condenser
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.
7.3 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.
