DAILY USE
CLEANING THE INTERIOR
Before using the appliance for the first time,
wash the interior and all internal accessories with lukewarm water and some neutral
soap so as to remove the typical smell of a
brand-new product, then dry thoroughly.

HUMIDITY CONTROL
The glass shelf incorporates a device with
slits (adjustable by means of a sliding lever),
which makes it possible to regulate the
temperature in the vegetable drawer(s).
When the ventilation slots are closed:
the natural moisture content of the food in
the fruit and vegetable compartments is
preserved for longer.
When the ventilation slots are opened:
more air circulation results in a lower air
moisture content in the fruit and vegetable
compartments.

HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
HINTS FOR ENERGY SAVING
• Do not open the door frequently or leave
it open longer than absolutely necessary.
• If the ambient temperature is high and
the Temperature Regulator is set to low
temperature and the appliance is fully
loaded, the compressor may run continuously, causing frost or ice on the evaporator. If this happens, set the Temperature Regulator toward warmer settings to
allow automatic defrosting and so a saving in electricity consumption.
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
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.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and
should be stored in the bottle rack on the
door.
Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not
packed, must not be kept in the refrigerator.

CARE AND CLEANING
CAUTION!
Unplug the appliance before carrying out any maintenance operation.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling unit; maintenance and recharging must therefore only be carried out by authorized technicians.
PERIODIC CLEANING
The equipment has to be cleaned regularly:
• clean the inside and accessories with
lukewarm water and some neutral soap.
• regularly check the door seals and wipe
clean to ensure they are clean and free
from debris.
• rinse and dry thoroughly.
Do not pull, move or damage any
pipes and/or cables inside the cabinet.
Never use detergents, abrasive
powders, highly perfumed cleaning
products or wax polishes to clean
the interior as this will damage the
surface and leave a strong odour.
Clean the condenser (black grill) 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.
Take care of not to damage the
cooling system.
Many proprietary kitchen surface cleaners
contain chemicals that can attack/damage
the plastics used in this appliance. For this
reason it is recommended that the outer
casing of this appliance is only cleaned with
warm water with a little washing-up liquid
added.
After cleaning, reconnect the equipment to
the mains supply.
PERIODS OF NON-OPERATION
When the appliance is not in use for long
periods, take the following precautions:
• disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
• remove all food
• defrost (if foreseen) and clean the appliance and all accessories
• leave the door/doors ajar to prevent unpleasant smells.
If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to check it once in a while to prevent
the food inside from spoiling in case of a
power failure.
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.
Periodically clean the defrost water drain
hole in the middle of the refrigerator compartment channel to prevent the water
overflowing and dripping onto the food inside. Use the special cleaner provided,
which you will find already inserted into the
drain hole.
