2.7. FAN
2.6. ZERO DEGREES DRAWER*
The Fan improves temperature distribution inside the
product, allowing better preservation of stored food. By
default, the fan is switched on. It is advisable to keep
the fan switched on when the ambient air temperature
is above 27 ÷ 28°C or if you notice drops of water
on the glass shelves or in sever humidity conditions.
Please note that when the fan is switched on it will
not continuously work. The fan will start/stop working
depending on the temperature and/or humidity level
inside the product. It is therefore absolutely normal if
the fan does not move even if the fan is switched on.
To activate or deactivate this function – see enclosed
Quick Start Guide.
The Zero Degrees Drawer 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
To activate/deactivate the box, press the
button as illustrated in the figure.
When the box has been
activated, the symbol lights up.
Note:
Do not obstruct the air intake area with food items.
To guarantee the right performance at lower ambient
temperature (colder than 18°C) and to minimize Energy
Consumption, turn off the fan.
To turn off the fan please see above procedure.
If the appliance has the Fan it can be equipped with the
antibacterial filter.
Remove it from the box placed in the crisper drawer
and insert into the cover of fan.
The replacement procedure is included in the filter box.
The temperature inside the box, when active, is
approximately 0°. 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 +5°C
- the box must be inserted to enable activation
- no special functions must have been selected
(Standby, 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.
2.8. TEMPERATURE SETTING
The appliance is normally factory-set for operation at
the recommended temperature of 5°C. The internal
temperature can be adjusted between 8°C and 2°C,
proceeding as follows:
•
Press the temperature setting button (°C). The
storage temperature can be changed by -1°C with
each pressure of the button: the value changes
cyclically between 8°C and 2°C.
Note:
- if the symbol does not light up when the function is
activated, check that the drawer is properly inserted; if
the problem persists, contact your nearest authorized
After-sales Service.
- if the function 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 function, a slight noise
may be heard: this is normal and is not a cause for
concern.
- when the function is not active, the temperature in the
drawer depends on the general temperature inside
the refrigerator.
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.).
Note: Displayed set points correspond to the average
temperature throughout the whole refrigerator.
2.9. NO-FROST REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT
Refrigerator compartment defrosting is completely
automatic.
Droplets of water on the rear wall inside the refrigerator
compartment indicate that the automatic defrost phase
is in progress. The defrost water is automatically run
into a drain hole and collected in a container, where it
evaporates.
Important: when the function is activated and there
are foodstuffs with a high water content, condensation
may form on shelves. In this case, disable the function
temporarily.
*Available on selected models only. Please check on the QUICK START GUIDE if this function is actually available on your model.

2.11.HUMIDITY CONTROLED CRISPER*
2.10. LED LIGHT SYSTEM*
The salad crispers fitted inside the fridge have been
specially designed for the purpose of keeping fruit and
vegetables fresh and crisp. Open the humidity regulator
(position B) if you want to store food in a less humid
environment like fruit, or close it (position A) to store
food in a more humid environment like vegetable.
The light system inside the fridge compartment uses
LEDs light, allowing a better lightning as well as very
low energy consumption. If the LED light system does
not work, please contact the Service to replace it.
Important:
The refrigerator compartment light switches on when
the refrigerator door is opened. If the door is kept open
for more than 10 minutes the light will be automatically
switched off.

3.2. NOTES
3.1. HOW TO INCREASE FRIDGE STORAGE
CAPACITY
• Do not block the air outlet area (on the back wall
inside the product) with food products.
• If the freezer is provided with a flap, it is possible to
maximize the storage volume by removing the flap.
• All shelves, flaps and pull-out baskets are
removable.
• The internal temperatures of the appliance may be
affected by the ambient temperature, frequency of
door opening, as well as location of the appliance.
Temperature setting should take into consideration
these factors.
• Unless otherwise specified the appliance
accessories are not dishwasher safe.
• Use Smart Display function as frequently as
possible.
You can increase storage capacity by removing the
“ZERO DEGREES DRAWER”*
In this case proceed as follows:
• switch off the box
• pull out the drawer and the white plastic shelf
underneath the box.
Note: the upper shelf
and the side support
cannot be removed. To
restore “Zero Degrees
Drawer” 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 Drawer” and remove it.
4. FOOD-STORAGE TIPS
The refrigerator is the ideal storage location for ready
meals, fresh and preserved food, dairy products, fruit
and vegetables and beverage.
4.2. HOW TO STORE FRESH FOOD AND
BEVERAGE
•Use recyclable plastic, metal, aluminum and glass
containers and cling film to wrap foods.
•Always use closed containers for liquids and for
food that may give off or be tainted by odor or flavor
transfer or cover them.
•Foods which give off a large amount ethylene
gas and those that are sensitive to this gas, such
as fruit, vegetables and salad, should always be
separated or wrapped so as not to reduce the
storage life; for example do not store tomatoes
together with kiwi fruits or cabbage.
•Do not store food too close together to enable
sufficient air circulation.
•To avoid bottles falling over, you can use the bottle
holder (available on selected models).
•If you have a little quantity of food to store in the
refrigerator, we recommend to use the shelves
above the crisper for fruits and vegetables since this
is the coolest area of the compartment.
4.1. AIR VENTILATION
•The natural circulation of air in the refrigerator
compartment results in zones with different
temperatures. It is coldest directly above the fruits
and vegetables crisper and at the rear wall. It is
warmest at the top front of the compartment.
•Insufficient ventilation results in an increase
in energy consumption and reduction of the
refrigerating performance.
*Available on selected models only. Please check on the QUICK START GUIDE if this function is actually available on your model.

8. TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
8.1. BEFORE CONTACTING AFTER-SALES SERVICE…
Performance problems often result from little things you can find and fix yourself without tools of any kind.
PROBLEM
The appliance is not working:
If there is water in the defrost pan:
If the edges of the appliance
cabinet, which come in contact with
the door seal, are warm to the touch:
If the light does not work:
If the motor seems to run too much:
If the appliance temperature is too
high:
If the doors do not open and close
properly:
SOLUTION
• Is the power cable plugged into a live socket with the proper
voltage?
• Have you checked the protection devices and fuses of the
electrical system in your home?
• This is normal in hot, damp weather. The pan can even be half
full. Make sure the appliance is level so that the water does not
overflow.
• This is normal in hot weather and when the compressor is
running.
• Have you checked the protection devices and fuses of the
electrical system in your home?
• Is the power cable plugged into a live socket with the proper
voltage?
• In case the LEDs are broken the user must call the Service for
exchange of the same type available only at our After-sales
Service Centers or authorized dealers.
• Motor running time depends on different things: number of door
openings, amount of food stored, temperature of the room, setting
of the temperature controls.
• Is the condenser (back the appliance) free of dust and fluff?
• Are the door properly closed?
• Are the door seals properly fitted?
• On hot days or if the room is warm, the motor naturally runs
longer.
• If the appliance door has been left open for a while or if large
amounts of food have been stored, the motor will run longer in
order to cool down the interior of the appliance.
