Switching on the appliance
1. Plug in the appliance
2. When the appliance is plugged in, it is normally
factory set to a temperature of 5°C.
Adjusting the temperature
For temperature adjustment, see the enclosed
product sheet.
Ambient air temperature, the frequency of door
opening, the introduction of hot food and
unsuitable appliance positioning can all affect the
internal temperature of the refrigerator, which may
differ from that shown on the display.
Storing food the refrigerator compartment:
• Cover food to prevent it drying out
• The distance between the shelves and the rear
wall inside the refrigerator ensures the free
circulation of air
• Do not place food in direct contact with the
rear wall of the refrigerator compartment
• Do not place hot food in the refrigerator
• Store liquids in closed containers
Storing vegetables with a high water content
can cause condensation to form on the glass
shelves; this will not affect the correct
operation of the appliance.
(depending on model)
The Meat & Fish box was designed specially to keep foods fresher for
longer, without altering nutritional values or original freshness.
Do not store fruit or vegetables in this box, as the temperature may
drop below 0°C, causing water contained in the food to freeze.
Temperature Adjustment
The temperature inside the Meat & Fish box is indicated by the position
of the arm on the door of the box, and depends on the general temperature of the refrigerator
We recommend setting the temperature of the refrigerator compartment between +2° and +6°.
To work out if the temperature inside the Meat & Fish box is correct, refer to the pictures below:
When the arm points to the left, you need to
raise the temperature in the refrigerator
When the arm is in the middle, the
temperature is ok.
When the arm points to the right, you need
to lower the temperature in the refrigerator
Important: when the function is activated and foods with a high water content are present, condensation
may form on the shelves. In this case, disable the function temporarily.
Removing the Meat & Fish compartment:
To ensure correct operation of the product, adequate preservation of
food and to optimise energy consumption, it is advisable not to remove
the Meat & Fish compartment if the symbol
(see Quick Guide) is
not present on the control panel. In all other cases, the Meat & Fish
compartment can be removed to obtain more space inside the
Proceed as follows:
1. Remove the compartment drawer (Figure 1).
2. Remove the drawer cover by releasing the bottom side clips (Figure
To reinstate the Meat & Fish compartment, make sure to refit the drawer
cover before inserting the drawer and reactivating operation.
3. Press the "Meat & Fish compartment function" button on the
control panel for 3 seconds, until the yellow indicator goes off.
To optimise energy consumption, it is advisable to deactivate the Meat &
Fish compartment and remove its components (except the shelf above
the crisper drawers).

“ZERO DEGREES” BOX (depending on the model)
The "Zero Degrees" box is specifically designed to maintain a low
temperature and a suitable humidity level, in order to keep foods
fresher for longer (e.g. meat, fish, fruit and winter vegetables).
Activating and deactivating the box
The temperature inside the box, when active, is approximately 0°.
To activate the compartment, press the button
shown in the figure for more than 1 second,
until the symbol lights up
The symbol lit indicates that the compartment is
functioning. Press the button again for more
than 1 second to deactivate the compartment
The following factors are vital for the "Zero Degrees" box to work properly:
- the refrigerator compartment must be switched on
- the temperature of the refrigerator compartment must be between +2°C and +6°C
- the box must be inserted to enable activation
- no special functions must have been selected (Standby, Cooling-Off, Vacation – where applicable).
If one of these special functions has been selected, the "Zero Degrees" box must be deactivated
manually, and any fresh food inside it removed. If manual deactivation does not take place, the box will be
deactivated automatically after 8 hours.
- if the symbol does not light up when the box is activated, check that the box is properly inserted; if the
problem persists, contact your nearest authorized After-sales Service
- if the box is active and the drawer open, the symbol on the control panel may be deactivated
automatically. If the drawer is inserted, the symbol will become active again
- irrespective of the state of the box, a slight noise may be heard: this is normal and is not a cause for
- when the box is not active, the temperature inside it depends on the general temperature inside the
refrigerator compartment. In this case, we recommend it is used to store fruit and vegetables which are
not sensitive to cold temperatures (fruits of the forest, apples, apricots, carrots, spinach, lettuce, etc.).
Important: If the function is activated and food with high water content is present, condensate may form
on the shelves. In this case, temporarily deactivate the function.
When placing small containers and food products on the top shelf of the "zero degrees" compartment,
make sure they do not accidentally fall between the drawer and the back of the refrigerator compartment
Removing the "Zero Degrees" box:
The "Zero Degrees" box can be removed to create more space inside the refrigerator. In this case
proceed as follows:
- to facilitate removal, we recommend emptying (and if necessary, removing) the two lower door trays
- switch off the box
- pull out the drawer and the white plastic shelf underneath the box.
Note: the upper shelf and the side supports cannot be removed.
To restore "Zero Degrees" box operation, make sure you replace the white plastic shelf underneath the
box before inserting the drawer and reactivating the function. To optimise energy consumption, we
recommend you deactivate the "Zero Degrees" box and remove it.
Clean the box and all its parts regularly, using a cloth and a solution of warm water and neutral detergent
specifically formulated for refrigerator interiors (take care not to immerse the white plastic shelf
underneath the box in water).
Before cleaning the box (including the outside), remove the drawer so as to disconnect the box
from the electricity supply.
Never use abrasive detergents.
COMPARTMENT (if present)
The freezer compartment
can also be
used for freezing fresh food. The quantity of
fresh food that can be frozen in 24 hours is
shown on the rating plate.
Freezing fresh food
• The recommended position for fresh food is
that indicated in Fig. 1, if a wire shelf is present,
or that in Fig. 2 for models with no wire shelf.
• Place food in the middle of the compartment,
making sure it does not touch already
frozen food, but is placed at a distance of
approx. 20 mm (fig. 1 and 2).
Fig. 1
The table alongside shows the recommended
maximum storage time for frozen fresh
When purchasing frozen food products:
• Make sure the packaging is not damaged, since
the product quality may have deteriorated. If
the package is swollen or has damp patches, it
may not have been stored under optimal
conditions and defrosting may have already
• When shopping, leave frozen food purchases
until last and transport the products in a
thermally insulated cool bag.
• Place the items in the compartment as soon as
you get home.

detach the tray if it is stuck to the bottom of the
• Bend the ice tray slightly to remove the cubes.
Before defrosting the appliance, unplug it or
switch off the power at the mains.
Defrosting of the refrigerator compartment is
completely automatic. Droplets of water on
the rear wall of the refrigerator compartment
indicate that the periodic automatic defrost
cycle is in progress. The defrost water is
automatically routed to a drain outlet and
into a container from which it evaporates.
Clean the defrost water drain outlet regularly using
the tool supplied with the appliance in order to
ensure defrost water is removed correctly. (Fig. 1)
Defrosting the compartment
(if present)
Defrost the
compartment once or twice a
year or when ice formation is excessive.
It is perfectly normal for ice to form. The amount
of ice which forms and the rate at which it
accumulates will vary depending on
ambient conditions and the frequency with which
the freezer door is opened. Ice formation is
concentrated at the top of the compartment and
does not affect the efficiency of the appliance.
If possible, defrost the freezer when it is nearly
