HOW TO USE THE REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT
This appliance is a refrigerator with a 4 star
freezer compartment.
Defrosting of the refrigerator compartment is
performed automatically.
The refrigerator can operate in room
temperatures between +10°C and +38°C.
Optimal performance of the appliance depends
on the climatic class, which is indicated on the
rating plate.
Switching on the appliance
Plug in the appliance.
The thermostat knob in the refrigerator
compartment serves to adjust the temperature in
both the refrigerator and freezer compartment if
your appliance is equipped with a single
compressor.
Refrigerator compartment and freezer
compartment temperature adjustment is
independent in the case of appliances with two
compressors (see product description sheet).
Temperature adjustment
1. To ensure correct operation and the best
possible food storage in both compartments,
set the thermostat in accordance with the
indications on the enclosed product
description sheet.
2. To alter the temperature in the refrigerator
and freezer compartments set the thermostat
knob to:
• lower numbers 1-2 (MIN) if you want to
INCREASE the temperature;
• higher numbers 5-7 (MAX) if you want to
DECREASE the temperature.
Thermostat setting z switches off all functions of
the appliance including the interior light.
Note:
The room air temperature, the number of times
the door is opened and the position of the
appliance will affect the temperature in the
refrigerator and freezer compartments. Take
these factors into consideration when you set the
thermostat. For example if the machine is
operated in a room with high temperature you
may need to set the thermostat to a low number.
Using the refrigerator compartment
Position the food as shown in the figure.
A Cooked food
B Fish, meat
C Fruit and vegetables
D Bottles
E Butter
F Dairy products, cheese
Notes:
• The space between the shelves and the rear
wall of the refrigerator compartment must be
unobstructed to allow air circulation.
• Do not place the food in direct contact with the
rear wall of the refrigerator compartment.
6
•
•
•
Do not place hot food in the refrigerator.
Store liquids in closed containers.
Storage of vegetables with high water
contents can lead to the formation of
condensation: this will not affect the correct
operation of the appliance.
30802004GB.fm Page 7 Monday, December 19, 2005 12:41 PM
HOW TO USE THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT
The appliance has a 4 star
freezer
compartment in which food can be stored for
the time indicated on the packaging. The
freezer can also be used to freeze fresh food
by positioning it on the racks; place frozen
food in the lower basket so that there is no
contact with fresh food that has yet to be
frozen.
The quantity of fresh food that can be frozen
in 24 hours is shown on the rating plate.
Freezing fresh food
If your appliance is equipped with a single
compressor:
•
•
Set the thermostat knob to 2-3.
If the appliance is equipped with a freeze
button, press it to activate the function (the
yellow indicator light will switch on). Also the
red indicator light (models with control panel)
may switch on. The red indicator light will
switch off when the freezer compartment has
reached the optimum temperature.
Note:
The freeze function makes it possible to freeze
fresh food while maintaining the temperature in
the refrigerator compartment at the optimum
level.
Temperature alarm function
(control panel versions)
When the appliance is running normally or when
food is being frozen, the red led may switch on
(in certain models this will be accompanied also
by an audible signal) informing you that the
temperature in the freezer compartment is too
high.
This may occur in the following situations:
• when the appliance is switched on for the first
time
• when it is switched on following defrosting
and cleaning
• if you load too much food at room
temperature
• if the freezer door has been left ajar
• if the "freezer thermostat knob" on the control
panel is advanced towards the "MAX" setting
(intense cold)
To mute the acoustic alarm press the "Fast
freeze" button.
When temperature in the freezer compartment
has fallen to acceptable levels, the red indicator
LED will switch off automatically. At this point
remember to switch off the " Fast freeze"
function.
Rapid freezing function
If your appliance is equipped with two
compressors, activate the rapid freezing function
6 hours before inserting fresh food to obtain the
maximum freezing power as indicated on the
rating plate.
Important
• Before freezing, wrap and seal fresh food in:
aluminium foil, cling film, air and water-tight
plastic bags, polythene containers with lids
or special freezer containers.
• Arrange the fresh food in the upper area of
the freezer compartment, leaving sufficient
space around each pack for the air to
circulate.
• The food will be completely frozen in 24 hours.
• Press the rapid freezing button to switch off
the function (yellow indicator light switches
off).

HOW TO USE THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT
Note:
The temperature in the freezer compartment is
maintained at the ideal level for the storage of
frozen food also during power failures of limited
duration, although it is advisable to avoid
opening the freezer compartment door during
such periods.
Important:
The table alongside shows the recommended
maximum storage time for frozen fresh
foods.
When purchasing frozen food products:
• ensure that the packaging is not damaged
(frozen food in damaged packaging may
have deteriorated). Avoid packages that are
swollen or show evidence of damp areas
indicating that the food may have thawed
partially during its period of storage.
• When shopping, leave frozen food
purchases till last and transport the products
in a thermally insulated cool bag.
• Place the items in the freezer compartment
as soon as you get home.
• If food has thawed, even partially, do not refreeze it. Consume within 24 hours.
• Avoid subjecting foods to temperature
variations. Observe the “best before” date on
the package.
• Always observe the storage information on
the package.
Removing the baskets
•
Pull out fully, raise slightly and remove.
Note:
The freezer compartment can be used without
the two upper baskets to increase storage space
for large products. The lower basket must not be
removed.
Place the food products directly on the racks.
After inserting food, ensure that the freezer
compartment door closes properly.
Making ice cubes
•
•
•
8
Pour water into the ice tray up to 2/3 full and
place it in the freezer compartment.
If the ice tray sticks to the shelves, do not use
pointed or sharp objects to detach it.
Bend the ice tray slightly to remove the cubes

HOW TO DEFROST THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT
Before servicing or cleaning the appliance,
unplug it from the mains or disconnect the
electricity supply.
Defrost the freezer compartment once or
twice a year or when the formation of ice on
the racks is excessive.
It is perfectly normal for ice to form on the
racks. The amount and speed at which the ice
forms depends on room air temperature and
humidity and the frequency with which the
door is opened. Ice formation is concentrated
on the racks at the top of the freezer
compartment.
If possible, defrost the freezer compartment
when it is nearly empty.
•

Remove the food from the freezer
compartment, wrap in a newspaper and
group together in a cool place or in a portable
cooler.
Leave the freezer door open so that the ice
can thaw.
Pull out the defrost water drain and place a
tray below it.
Clean the interior of the freezer compartment
with a sponge and warm water and/or neutral
detergent. Do not use abrasive products.
Rinse the interior and dry thoroughly.
Fit the drain back into place.
Put the food back into the freezer
compartment.
Close the compartment door.
Plug in the appliance / reconnect the
electricity supply.
Switch the appliance on.
HOW TO CLEAN THE REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT
The refrigerator compartment must be
cleaned periodically.
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 routed to a drain outlet and
into a container on the compressor from which it
evaporates.
Clean the defrost water drain outlet regularly
using the tool supplied with the appliance. This
precaution ensures that defrost water is removed
correctly from the interior of the refrigerator
compartment.
Before cleaning the refrigerator compartment,
unplug the appliance from the mains.
• Use a sponge with warm water and/or neutral
detergent.
• Rinse the interior and dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use abrasive products
