settings to obtain the minimum coldness.
2. Turn the Temperature regulator toward higher
settings to obtain the maximum coldness.
CAUTION! 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.

2
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.
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 re-frozen (after
cooling).
3
MOVABLE SHELVES
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with a
series of runners so that the shelves can be
positioned as desired.
Do not move the glass shelf above the
vegetable drawer to ensure correct air
circulation.
FREEZING FRESH FOOD
The freezer compartment is suitable for freezing
fresh food and storing frozen and deep-frozen food
for a long time.
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.
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.
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 compartment.
HINTS AND TIPS
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).
5
•
A faint click noise from the temperature
regulator when the compressor switches on or
off.
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 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.
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.
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.

This operation will improve the performance of
the appliance and save electricity consumption.
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 in the middle of the refrigerator
compartment channel to prevent the water
overflowing and dripping onto the food inside.
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.
2. Remove any stored food, wrap it in several
layers of newspaper and put it in a cool place.
WARNING! Do not touch frozen
goods with wet hands. Hands can
freeze to the goods.
3. Leave the door open.
In order to speed up the defrosting process,
place a pot of warm water in the freezer
compartment. In addition, remove pieces of ice
that break away before defrosting is complete.
4. When defrosting is completed, dry the interior
thoroughly and keep the scraper for future use.
5. Switch on the appliance.
After three hours reload the previously removed
food into the freezer compartment.
PERIODS OF NON-OPERATION
