In case of Black Out Alarm, the
following actions are recommended:
• If the food in the freezer is unfrozen
but still cold, all the food in the
freezer should be moved to the fridge
compartment and eaten within the
next 24 hours.
• If the food in the freezer is frozen, this
indicates the food was thawed and
then refrozen when electricity was
re-supplied which degrades taste,
quality and nutritional value and also
could be unsafe. It is recommended
to not consume the food but to
dispose of the entire content of the
freezer.
The Black Out Alarm is designed to
provide guidance on food quality in the
freezer in the event of electricity black
out.

QUICK ICE
HOW TO MAKE ICE CUBES
Put the empty ice cube trays into the
freezer 24 hours before using the Quick
Ice feature to cool them down. To
achieve the best performance of the
Quick Ice trays it is recommended to
keep them permanently in the freezer
and maintain temperature setting at
-18°C or colder.
Remove a Quick Ice tray by pulling it
towards you.
Insert the cover back into the tray and
insert it back into the dedicated slots in
the top freezer drawer. Take care not to
spill water.
Remove the cover and fill the tray with
potable water (maximum level = 2/3 of
the overall capacity of the tray).
The Alarm indicator is automatically
turned-off as soon as the freezer
compartment reaches a temperature
below -10°C and the Alarm indicator
turns off.
Wait at least 30 minutes until the ice
cubes are formed (this time can be
slightly longer if the trays are used
immediately after the first use).
HOW TO TAKE ICE CUBES
When ice is ready please open the
cover and remove cubes.
15
USING QUICK ICE TRAYS
AS EUTETICS
Quick Ice trays can also be used as
eutetics to help in keeping the food
frozen in case of power failure. For the
best usage of them, place them above
food stored in the top drawer of the
freezer compartment. In this position
the trays can still be used to make ice
cubes, however the time needed to do
that may be longer.
ACTIVE 0
COMPARTMENT
The Active 0 compartment is
specifically designed to maintain a low
temperature and a suitable humidity
level, in order to keep foods fresher for
longer (e.g. meat, fish, fruit and winter
vegetables).

the Active 0 compartment lights up.
The temperature inside the
ompartment/drawer, when active, is
approximately 0 degrees.
The following factors are vital for the
compartment to work properly:
-the temperature of the refrigerator
compartment must be switched
between +2 °C and +4°C.
-the compartment must be inserted to
enable activation
-no special function must have been
selected (as Standby, Vacation mode –
where applicable).
If one of these special functions has
been selected, the fresh food inside
the Active0 compartment should be

again after few seconds by simple
pressing the button.
- irrespective of the state of the box, a
slight noise may be heard: this is normal
and is not a cause for concern.
- when the box is not active, the
temperature inside it depends on
the general temperature inside the

In this case, we recommend it is used
to store fruit and vegetables which are
not sensitive to cold temperatures (fruits
of the forest, apples, apricots, carrots,
spinach, lettuce, etc.).
Important: when the function is
activated and there are foodstuffs with
a high water content, condensation
may form on shelves.
Attention:
• Incompatibility with the
“Vacation” function
To guarantee optimal performance,
the “Vacation” and “Active 0” functions
cannot be used at the same time.
Therefore, if the “Vacation” function
has been already engaged, it has to be
disengaged first to activate the “Active
0” function (and viceversa).

FOOD-STORAGE TIPS
FRIDGE COMPARTMENT
The refrigerator is the ideal storage location for ready
meals, fresh and preserved food, dairy products, fruit
and vegetables and beverage.
AIR VENTILATION
The natural circulation of air in the refrigerator
compartment results in zones with different
temperatures. It is coldest directly above the fruits
and vegetables crisper and at the rear wall. It is
warmest at the top front of the compartment.
Insufficient ventilation results in an increase in energy
consumption and reduction of the refrigerating
performance.
Do not cover air slots by food on other staff - they
are optimized for proper air circulation and food
preservation.
HOW TO STORE FRESH FOOD AND BEVERAGE
› Use recyclable plastic, metal, aluminum and glass
containers and cling film to wrap foods.
› Always use closed containers for liquids and for
food that may give off or be tainted by odor or flavor
transfer or cover them.
› Foods which give off a large amount ethylene gas
and those that are sensitive to this gas, such as fruit,
vegetables and salad, should always be separated
or wrapped so as not to reduce the storage life; for
example do not store tomatoes together with kiwi
fruits or cabbage.
› Do not store food too close together to enable
sufficient air circulation.
› To avoid bottles falling over, you can use the bottle
holder.
› If you have a little quantity of food to store in the
refrigerator, we recommend to use the shelves above
the crisper for fruits and vegetables since this is the
coolest area of the compartment.
› Be aware to do not close air slots by the food.
WHERE TO STORE FRESH FOOD AND BEVERAGE
› On the fridge shelves: ready meals, tropical fruits,
cheeses, deli.
› In the fruits and vegetables crisper: fruits, salad,
vegetables.
› In the coldest area (the one above the fruits and
vegetables crisper): meat, fish, cold cuts, cakes
› In the door: butter, jams, sauces, pickles, cans,
bottles, beverage cartons, eggs.

the freezer compartment.
The maximum number of kilograms of fresh food that
can be frozen within a 24-hour period is indicated on
the rating plate (…kg/24h).
If you have a little quantity of food to store in the
freezer, we recommend to use the coldest areas of
your freezer compartment, corresponding to the
middle area.
TIPS FOR FREEZING AND STORING FRESH FOOD
flavor. Some meat, especially game, should be hung
before it is frozen.
› We recommend to label and date all your frozen
food. Adding a label will help you to identify foods
and to know when they should be used before their
quality deteriorates.Do not re-freeze defrosted food.
› Always leave hot food to cool before placing in the
freezer.
› Before freezing, wrap and seal fresh food in:
aluminium foil, cling film, air and water-tight plastic
bags, polythene containers with lids or freezer
containers suitable for freezing fresh food.
› Eat fully or partially defrosted foods immediately.
Do not refreeze unless the food is cooked after it
has thawed. Once cooked, the thawed food can be
refrozen.
› Do not freeze bottles with liquid.
› Food must be fresh, mature and of prime quality in
order to obtain high quality frozen food.
› Please use Fast Cool function to speed up cooling
process (see Daily Reference Guide).
› Fresh vegetables and fruit should preferably be
frozen as soon as they are picked to maintain the full
original nutritional value, consistency, colour and
› Please use Fast Freeze function to speed up freezing
process (see Daily Reference Guide).
FROZEN FOOD: SHOPPING TIPS
When purchasing frozen food products:
› Ensure that the packaging is not damaged (frozen
food in damaged packaging may have deteriorated).
If the package is swollen or has damp patches, it may
not have been stored under optimal conditions and
defrosting may have already begun.
› When shopping, buy frozen foods at the end of your
trip and transport them in a thermally insulated cool
bag.
20
› Once at home, place the frozen foods immediately
in the freezer.
› If food has defrosted even partially, do not re-freeze
it. Consume within 24 hours.
› Avoid or reduce temperature variations to the
minimum. Respect the best-before date on the
package.
› Always observe the storage information on the
package.
