First use
Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first time,
wash the interior and all internal accessories
with lukewarm water and some neutral soap
so as to remove the typical smell of a brandnew product, then dry thoroughly.
Important! Do not use detergents or abrasive
powders, as these will damage the finish.
Daily use
Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with a series of
runners so that the
shelves can be positioned as desired.
Positioning the door shelves
To store various size food packages, the door
shelves can be placed at different heights.
Gradually pull the shelf in the direction of the
arrows until it comes free, then reposition as
Cold accumulators
The freezer contains at least one cold accumulator which increases storage time in the
event of a power cut or breakdown.
Helpful hints and tips
Hints for energy saving
• Do not open the door frequently or leave it
open longer than absolutely necessary.
• If the ambient temperature is high and the
Temperature Regulator is set to low temperature and the appliance is fully loaded, the
compressor may run continuously, causing
frost or ice on the evaporator. If this happens, set the Temperature Regulator toward
warmer settings to allow automatic defrosting and so a saving in electricity consumption.
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
Hints for refrigeration
Useful hints:
Meat (all types) : wrap in polythene bags and
place on the glass shelf above the vegetable
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.
Fruits and vegetables: these should be thoroughly cleaned and placed in the special
drawer(s) provided. When in contact, lemon
juice can discolor the plastic parts of your
fridge. It is therefore recommended to keep
citruses in separate containers.
Butter and cheese: these should be placed in
special airtight containers or wrapped in alumi5
nium foil or polythene bags to exclude as
much air as possible.
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.
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
• rinse and dry thoroughly.
Important! 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.
Important! 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 ev6
ery 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.
Defrosting of the freezer
The freezer compartment of this model, on the
other hand, is a "no frost" type. This means
that there is no buildup of frost when it is in
operation, neither on the internal walls nor on
the foods.
The absence of frost is due to the continuous
circulation of cold air inside the compartment,
driven by an automatically controlled fan.
Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long periods, take the following precautions:
• disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
• remove all food
• defrost (if foreseen) and clean the appliance
and all accessories
• leave the door/doors ajar to prevent unpleasant smells.
If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to
check it once in a while to prevent the food inside from spoiling in case of a power failure.
