case the dial must be set to a
higher temperature to allow
automatic defrosting and
therefore reduced energy
consumption.
4. FIRST USE
4.1 Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first
time, the interior and all internal
accessories should be washed with
lukewarm water and some neutral soap to
remove the typical smell of a brand-new
product, then dried thoroughly.
CAUTION!
Do not use detergents or
abrasive powders, as these
will damage the finish.
5. DAILY USE
WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
5.1 Freezing fresh food
The freezer compartment is suitable for
freezing fresh food and storing frozen and
deep-frozen food for a long time.
To freeze fresh foods it is not necessary to
change the medium setting.
However, for a faster freezing operation,
turn the temperature regulator toward
higher settings to obtain the maximum
coldness.
CAUTION!
In this condition, the
refrigerator compartment
temperature might drop
below 0°C. If this occurs
reset the temperature
regulator to a warmer setting.
5.2 Storage of frozen food
When first starting-up or after a period out
of use, before putting the products in the
compartment let the appliance run at least
2 hours on the higher settings.
In the event of accidental
defrosting, for example due
to a power failure, if the
power has been off for longer
than the value shown in the
technical characteristics chart
under "rising time", the
defrosted food must be
consumed quickly or cooked
immediately and then refrozen (after cooling).
5.3 Thawing
Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being
used, can be thawed in the refrigerator
compartment or at room temperature,
depending on the time available for this
operation.
ENGLISH
Small pieces may even be cooked still
frozen, directly from the freezer: in this
case, cooking will take longer.
5.4 Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped
with a series of runners so that the shelves
can be positioned as desired.
7
5.5 Positioning the door shelves
The model is equipped with a variable
storage box which is fitted under a door
shelf compartment and can be slide
sideways.
For more thorough cleaning, the top and
bottom door shelves can be easily
removed and refitted in position
Do not move the glass shelf
above the vegetable drawer
and the bottle shelf to ensure
correct air circulation.
6. HINTS AND TIPS
6.1 Normal operating sounds
The following sounds are normal during
operation:
• A faint gurgling and bubbling sound
from coils sound when refrigerant is
pumped.
• A whirring and pulsating sound from
the compressor when refrigerant is
pumped.
• A sudden cracking noise from inside
appliance caused by thermic dilatation
(a natural and not dangerous physical
phenomenon).
• A faint click noise from the temperature
regulator when the compressor
switches on or off.
6.2 Hints for energy saving
• Do not open the door frequently or
leave it open longer than absolutely
necessary.
6.3 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
6.4 Hints for refrigeration
Useful hints:
• Meat (all types) : wrap in polythene
bags and place on the glass shelf
above the vegetable drawer.
• 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.
• Fruit and vegetables: these should be
thoroughly cleaned and placed in the
special drawer(s) provided.
• Butter and cheese: these should be
placed in special airtight containers or
wrapped in aluminium foil or polythene
bags to exclude as much air as
possible.
• Bottles: these need a cap and should
be stored on the door bottle shelf, or (if
equipped) on the bottle rack.
8
www.electrolux.com
• Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic,
if not packed, must not be kept in the
refrigerator.
6.5 Hints for freezing
To help you make the most of the freezing
process, here are some important hints:
• the maximum quantity of food which
can be frozen in 24 hours is shown on
the rating plate;
• the freezing process takes 24 hours no
further food to be frozen should be
added during this period;
• freeze only top quality, fresh and
thoroughly cleaned, foodstuffs;
• prepare food in small portions to
enable it to be rapidly and completely
frozen and to make it possible
subsequently to thaw only the quantity
required;
• wrap up the food in aluminium foil or
polythene and make sure that the
packages are airtight;
• do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to
touch food which is already frozen,
thus avoiding a rise in temperature of
the latter;
• lean foods store better and longer than
fatty ones; salt reduces the storage life
of food;
• water ices, if consumed immediately
after removal from the freezer
compartment, can possibly cause the
skin to be freeze burnt;
• it is advisable to show the freezing in
date on each individual pack to enable
you to keep tab of the storage time.
6.6 Hints for storage of frozen
food
To obtain the best performance from this
appliance, you should:
• make sure that the commercially frozen
foodstuffs were adequately stored by
the retailer;
• be sure that frozen foodstuffs are
transferred from the foodstore to the
freezer in the shortest possible time;
• not open the door frequently or leave it
open longer than absolutely necessary;
• once defrosted, food deteriorates
rapidly and cannot be refrozen;
• do not exceed the storage period
indicated by the food manufacturer.
7. CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
7.1 General warnings
CAUTION!

ENGLISH
The equipment has to be cleaned
regularly:
1. Clean the inside and accessories with
lukewarm water and some neutral
soap.
2. Regularly check the door seals and
wipe clean to ensure they are clean
and free from debris.
3. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
4. If accessible, clean the condenser 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.
7.3 Defrosting of the refrigerator
Frost is automatically eliminated from the
evaporator of the refrigerator
compartment every 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 (F) situated under
the salad drawers to prevent the water
overflowing and dripping onto the food
inside. Use the special cleaner provided
(P), which you will find already inserted
into the drain hole.

7.4 Defrosting the freezer
CAUTION!
Never use sharp metal tools
to scrape off frost from the
evaporator as you could
damage it. Do not use a
mechanical device or any
artificial means to speed up
the thawing process other
than those recommended by
the manufacturer. A
temperature rise of the frozen
food packs, during
defrosting, may shorten their
safe storage life.
About 12 hours prior to
defrosting, set a lower
temperature, in order to build
up sufficient chill reserve for
the interruption in operation.
A certain amount of frost will always form
on the freezer shelves and around the top
compartment.
Defrost the freezer when the frost layer
reaches a thickness of about 3-5 mm.
1. Switch off the appliance, or pull out
electrical plug from the wall socket.
