4.1 Cleaning the interior
4.3 Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are
equipped with a series of runners so that
the shelves can be positioned as desired.
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 brandnew product, then dried thoroughly.
Do not use detergents,
abrasive powders, chlorine
or oil-based cleaners as they
will damage the finish.
4.2 Positioning the door
To permit storage of food packages of
various sizes, the door shelves can be
placed at different heights.
1. Gradually pull the shelf in the
direction of the arrows until it comes
2. Reposition as required.
Do not move the glass shelf
above the vegetable drawer

and restarts immediately
after the door closing.
This model is equipped with a
variable storage box which can be
moved sideways.
4.5 Freezing fresh food
4.7 Thawing
The freezer compartment is suitable for
freezing fresh food and storing frozen
and deep-frozen food for a long time.
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.
The maximum amount of food that can
be frozen in 24 hours is specified on the
rating plate, a label located on the
inside of the appliance.
1. To freeze fresh food activate the
FROSTMATIC function at least 24
hours before placing the food to be
frozen in the freezer compartment.
2. Place the fresh food to be frozen in
the upper compartment.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours:
during this period do not add other food
to be frozen.
4.6 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).
Small pieces may even be cooked still
frozen, directly from the freezer: in this
case, cooking will take longer.
4.8 Ice-cube production
This appliance is equipped with one or
more trays for the production of icecubes.
Do not use metallic
instruments to remove the
trays from the freezer.
1. Fill these trays with water
2. Put the ice trays in the freezer
4.9 Cold accumulators
The freezer contains at least one cold
accumulator which increases storage
time in the event of a power cut or
5.1 Normal operating sounds
The following sounds are normal during
• A faint gurgling and bubbling sound
from coils sound when refrigerant is
• A whirring and pulsating sound from
the compressor when refrigerant is
• 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.
5.2 Hints for energy saving
• Do not open the door frequently or
leave it open longer than absolutely
• 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.
• If foreseen, do not remove the cold
accumulators from the freezer basket.
5.3 Hints for fresh food
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
5.4 Hints for refrigeration
Useful hints:
• Meat (all types): wrap in a suitable
packaging and place it on the glass
shelf above the vegetable drawer.
Store meat for at most 1-2 days.
• Cooked foods, cold dishes: cover and
place on any shelf.
• Fruit and vegetables: clean
thoroughly and place in a special
drawer. Bananas, potatoes, onions
and garlic must not be kept in the
refrigerator if not packed.
• Butter and cheese: place in a special
airtight container or wrap in an
aluminium foil or a polythene bag to
exclude as much air as possible.
• Bottles: close with a cap and place on
the door bottle shelf, or (if available)
on the bottle rack.
5.5 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
5.6 Hints for storage of frozen
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
• once defrosted, food deteriorates
rapidly and cannot be refrozen;
• do not exceed the storage period
indicated by the food manufacturer.
Refer to Safety chapters.
6.1 General warnings
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.
The accessories and parts of
the appliance are not
suitable for washing in a
This operation will improve the
performance of the appliance and
save electricity consumption.
6.3 Defrosting of the
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 in the middle of
the refrigerator compartment channel to
prevent the water overflowing and
dripping onto the food inside.
6.2 Periodic cleaning
Do not pull, move or
damage any pipes and/or
cables inside the cabinet.
Take care of not to damage
the cooling system.
When moving the cabinet,
lift it by the front edge to
avoid scratching the floor.
The equipment has to be cleaned
1. Clean the inside and accessories with
lukewarm water and some neutral
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.
6.4 Defrosting the freezer
The freezer compartment is frost free.
This means that there is no build up of
frost when it is in operation, neither on
the internal walls nor on the foods.
6.5 Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long
periods, take the following precautions:
1. Disconnect the appliance from
electricity supply.
2. Remove all food.
3. Clean the appliance and all
4. Leave the door/doors open to
prevent unpleasant smells.
If you want to keep the
appliance switched on, ask
somebody to check it once
in a while to prevent the
food inside from spoiling in
case of a power failure.
