Chiller system
No Frost
The No Frost system circulates cold air continuously to collect
humidity and prevent ice and frost formation. The system
maintains an optimal humidity level in the compartment,
preserving the original quality of the food, preventing the food
from sticking together and making defrosting a thing of the past.
Do not block the aeration cells by placing food or containers
near the refrigerating back panel.
! Close bottles and wrap food tightly.
Using the refrigerator to its full potential
• Use the REFRIGERATOR OPERATION button to adjust the
temperature (see Description).
• Press the SUPER COOL button (rapid cooling) to lower the
temperature quickly. For example, when you place a large
number of new food items inside a fridge the internal temperature
will rise slightly. The function quickly cools the groceries by
temporarily reducing the temperature until it reaches the ideal
• Place only cold or lukewarm foods in the compartment, not hot
foods (see Precautions and tips).
• Remember that cooked foods do not last longer than raw foods.
• Do not store liquids in open containers. They will increase
humidity in the refrigerator and cause condensation to form.
! To close the refrigerator door to pay attention to the vertical
bracket position (see figure)
Start-up and use
Starting the appliance
! Before starting the appliance, follow the installation
instructions (see Installation).
! Before connecting the appliance, clean the compartments and
accessories well with lukewarm water and bicarbonate.
! The appliance comes with a motor protection control system
which makes the compressor start approximately 8 minutes
after being switched on. The compressor also starts each time
the power supply is cut off whether voluntarily or involuntarily
Due to the special guides the shelves are removable and the
height is adjustable, allowing easy storage of large containers
and food.
The salad crispers fitted inside the fridge have been specially
designed for the purpose of keeping fruit and vegetables fresh
and crisp. Open the humidity regulator (position B) if you want to
store food in a less humid environment like fruit, or close it (position
A) to store food in a more humid environment like vegetables.
Indicator light*: to identify the coldest area in the refrigerator.
1. Check that OK appears clearly on the indicator light (see
After pouring water in the special ice cups, place them in their
places in the ice device. After about 2 hours, the ice cubes will
be ready. In order to get the ice cubes, it will be sufficient to turn
the two buttons to the right. The ice cubes will fall in to the tray
below, ready to be used.
2. If the word “OK” does not appear it means that the temperature
is too high: set a lower temperature and wait approximately 10
hours until the temperature has been stabilised.
3. Check the indicator light again: if necessary, readjust it following
the initial process. If large quantities of food have been added
or if the refrigerator door has been opened frequently, it is
normal for the indicator not to show OK. Wait at least 10 hours
before adjusting the REFRIGERATOR OPERATION knob to a
higher setting.
Using the freezer to its full potential
• Use the FREEZER OPERATION button to adjust the temperature
(see Description).
• Do not re-freeze food that is defrosting or that has already been
defrosted. These foods must be cooked and eaten (within 24
• Fresh food that needs to be frozen must not come into contact
with food that has already been defrosted.
• Do not place glass bottles which contain liquids, and which
are corked or hermetically sealed in the freezer because they
could break.
• The maximum quantity of food that may be frozen daily is
indicated on the plate containing the technical properties
located on the bottom left side of the refrigerator compartment
(for example: Kg/24h: 4).
• To freeze (if the freezer is already operating): press the
rapid freezing SUPER FREEZE button (corresponding blue
indicator light illuminates), insert the food and close the door.

If you need more storage space, the ICE DEVICE may be taken
out by pushing the nail on the top of the ice device.
Food Care Zone *
Area dedicated to the storage of fresh food, such as meat and
fish. Thanks to the low temperature inside the compartment, the
Food Care Zone extends the period of time for which the food
can be stored, keeping it fresh for up to a week.
Food Care Zone 0°C / Safe Defrost* : A compartment designed
to keep delicate food such as meat and fish fresh. The low
temperature in the compartment makes it possible to store the food
for up to one week - tests performed on meat products - without
changing its nutrients, appearance and flavour.
The compartment is also very suitable for healthy food defrosting,
as low-temperature defrosting prevents any proliferation of
microorganisms, while protecting its taste and organoleptic
It is not suitable for fruit, vegetables and green salad. But it can
be used for fresh or very fresh dairy products and milk, stuffed
fresh pasta and even cooked food or leftovers.
