How to operate the refrigerator
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
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.
MEAT & FISH BOX (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 compartment.
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 compartment.
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 refrigerator.
Proceed as follows:
1. Remove the compartment drawer (Figure 1).
2. Remove the drawer cover by releasing the bottom side clips
(Figure 2).
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
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
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 concern.
- 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
- 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.
How to use the freezer
compartment (if present)
The freezer compartment
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

not touch already frozen food, but is placed
at a distance of approx. 20 mm (fig. 1 and
Fig. 1
The table alongside shows the
recommended maximum storage time for
frozen fresh foods.
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 begun.
• 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.
• If food has defrosted even partially, do not
re-freeze it. Consume within 24 hours.
• Avoid, or reduce temperature variations to
the minimum. Respect the best-before date
on the package.
• Always follow the storage instructions on the
frozen food packages.

How to defrost the appliance
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
