We suggest setting the knob to the middle position to
obtain an internal temperature of approximately
-18°C, which guarantees proper freezing and
conservation of the frozen foods.
Freezing fresh food
The freezer compartment is suitable for long term
storage of commercially frozen food, and for freezing
fresh food.
The maximum quantity of foods to freeze in 24 hours is
shown on the serial number plate.
Place the foods you want to freeze on the shelf of the
freezer compartment, as this is the coldest point.
To freeze fresh foods, you will need to activate the fast
freeze function. Press button E (several times if
necessary) until the corresponding icon appears
After a pre-cooling period of 24 hours, place the foods
in the freezer.
The freezing process takes 24 hours. During this
period do not put other foods in the freezer.
This function stops automatically after 54 hours.
Put the foods to be frozen in the compartments of
the freezer, as per the diagram.
The function can be de-activated at any time by
pressing button E (see paragraph "Activation of
Distribute the frozen food packages in the other
compartments, so that the top compartments can be
used for a further freezing operation.
The food to be frozen must be fresh and of the
best quality.
Do not allow fresh food to touch food which is
already frozen.
During the freezing process, ensure that the
freezer door remains closed.
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 for at least two hours on the fast
frost setting, then push again the Super-frost button.
In the event of accidental defrosting, for example
due to a power failure, if the power has been off
for longer that 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
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.
Small pieces may even be cooked still frozen, directly
from the freezer: in this case, cooking will take longer.
Ice-cube production
This appliance is equipped with one or more trays
for the production of ice-cubes. Fill these trays with
water, then put them in the freezer compartment.
Do not use metallic instruments to remove the
trays from the freezer.
Cold accumulators
The appliance is equipped with two cold
accumulators. If there is a power outage, they will
extend food conservation for a few hours.
Excessive temperature alarm
An increase in the temperature in the freezer
compartment (for example due to an power failure)
is indicated by:
- flashing temperature;
- freezer compartment flashing (symbol 2);
- red illumination of display;
- sounding of buzzer.
When normal conditions are restored:
- the acoustic signal shuts off;
- the temperature value continues to flash;
- the display illumination remains red.
When you press button "E" to de-activate the alarm,
the highest temperature reached in the compartment
appears on indicator 4 for approximately 5 seconds.
At this point the flashing stops and the display
illumination changes over from red to white.
During the alarm phase, the buzzer can be switched
off by pressing button E; the illumination of the
display remains red until normal storage conditions
are restored.
Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with a
series of runners so that the shelves can be
positioned as desired.
For better use of space, the front half-shelves can lie
over the rear ones.
Positioning the door shelves
To permit storage of food packages of various sizes,
the door shelves can be placed at different heights.
To make these adjustments proceed as follows:
Gradually pull the shelf in the direction of the arrows
until it comes free, then reposition as required.
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)
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
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.
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 hrs. is shown on the rating plate;
the freezing process takes 24 hours. No further
food to be frozen should be added during this
only freeze 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
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;
the symbols on the drawers show different types of
frozen goods.
The numbers indicate storage times in months for the
appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether the
upper or lower value of the indicated storage time is
valid depends on the quality of the foods and pretreating before freezing;
do not put carbonated liquids (fizzy drinks,
etc.) in the freezer compartment as they may
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.
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.
Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long periods,
take the following precautions:
Turn off the appliance;
remove all food;
defrost and clean the interior and all accessories;
Periodic cleaning
leave the door ajar to allow air to circulate to prevent
unpleasant smells.
Clean the inside with warm water and bicarbonate of
soda. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Clean the condenser (black grill) and the
compressor at the back of the appliance with a
brush or a vacuum cleaner. This operstion will
improve the performance of the appliance and save
electricity consumption.
Interior light
If it becomes necessary to replace the lamp, press
on the rear hook and at the same time
slide the cover in the direction indicated by the arrow.
Replace the lamp with one of the same power (the
maximum power is shown on the light diffuser).
The refrigerator automatically defrosts every time
the compressor stops. The water is discharged, via
the pipe, into a tray located at the back of the
appliance above the compressor, where it
Your appliance is frost free, which means there is no
need to manually defrost your appliance as this will
be carried out automatically.
If the appliance is not functioning properly, check
the plug is firmly in the wall socket and the mains
power switch is on;
there is an electricity supply (find out by plugging
in another appliance);
If there are water drops on the bottom of the
cabinet, check that the defrost water drain
opening is not obstructed (see “Defrosting”
If your appliance is still not working properly after
making the above checks, contact the nearest
service centre.
To obtain fast service, it is essential that when you
apply for it you specify the model and serial number
