Use
• The domestic refrigerators and
freezers are designed to be used
specifically for the storage of edible
foodstuffs only.
• Best performance is obtained with
ambient temperature between
+18°C and +43°C (class T); +18°C
and +38°C (class ST); +16°C and
+32°C (class N); +10°C and +32°C
(class SN). The class of your
appliance is shown on its rating
plate.
Warning: when the ambient
temperature is not included within
the range indicated for the class of
this appliance, the following
instructions must be observed:
when the ambient temperature
drops below the minimum level, the
storage temperature in the freezer
compartment cannot be
guaranteed; therefore it is advisable
to use the food stored as soon as

Operation
Temperature regulation
Insert the plug into the wall socket.
Turn the thermostat knob (B) to the
right to a medium setting.The pilot light
(A) will light up, indicating that the
appliance is powered. To stop
operation, simply turn the thermostat
knob to position «O».
The pilot light remains lit up.
The temperature is automatically
regulated and can be increased to
achieve a higher temperature (warmer)
by rotating the thermostat knob toward
lower settings or reduced (colder)
rotating the knob towards higher settings.
However, the exact setting should be
chosen keeping in mind that the
temperature inside the refrigerator
depends on:
• room temperature;
• how often the door is opened;
• the quantity of food stored;
• location of appliance.
10 electrolux
Important
If the ambient temperature is high or
the appliance is fully loaded, and the
appliance is set to the lowest
temperatures, it may run continuously
causing frost to form on the rear wall.
In this case the dial must be set to a
higher temperature to allow automatic
defrosting and therefore reduced
energy consumption.
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 round it.
Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are
equipped with a series of runners so
that the shelves can be positioned as
desired.
D338
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.

HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES
Because of consumer demand, preservatives have been removed from many
pre-p
prepared foods. This together with the changes in shopping habits to a
once-a
a-w
week shop, mean that safe handling and storage of food is even more
important than ever.
The following tips should help you to ensure that the food in your home is in as
perfect condition as possible.
•
Keep the time between buying
chilled food and placing it in your
fridge as short as possible. Tests
showed that the temperature of 1
litre of orange juice rose to 22°C in
an hour between the supermarket
and home. It then took 11 hours to
get down to 7°C in the refrigerator.
• Keep the refrigerator door closed
as much as possible.
• Do not push food together too
much, try to allow air to circulate
around each item.
• Cool cooked food as quickly as
possible but do NOT place in the
refrigerator until cool. (Leave food
in a place as cool as possible in
order that it can then be placed in
the refrigerator as soon as
possible).
• Do NOT mix raw and cooked
meat, they must be in separate
containers. Take care not to let the
meat juices drip onto other food. If
the meat does drip, remove
everything and clean thoroughly.
• Do not store food uncovered.
• Remove suspect food from your
refrigerator and clean (refer to
“Maintenance and Cleaning).
• Never allow spillages to dry and
harden.
• Store eggs in the egg rack provided
in the refrigerator door. Discard any
broken or chipped eggs.
• Regularly check the refrigerator
door seal to ensure that it is clean
and free from debris.
• Always wash your hands with
soapy water and dry them with a
clean towel before handling food.
• Keep work surfaces clean and
avoid cross contamination by not
using the same work surface or
knife, without washing them
thoroughly in between.
electrolux 13

Defrosting
Interior light
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.
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.
D037
It is important to 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.
Attention
Replace the lamp with one of the
same power (the maximum power is
shown on the light diffuser).
