Insufficient ventilation at the back of the product increases energy
consumption and decreases cooling efficiency.
Frequent door opening might cause an increase in Energy Consumption.
The internal temperature of the appliance and the Energy Consumption
may be affected also by the ambient temperature, as well as location of
the appliance. Temperature setting should take into consideration these
factors.
Reduce door opening to a minimum.
When thawing frozen food, place in the refrigerator. The low temperature
of the frozen products cools the food in the refrigerator. Allow warm
food and drinks to cool down before placing in the appliance.
Positioning of the shelves in the refrigerator has no impact on the
efficient usage of energy. Food should be placed on the shelves in such
way to ensure proper air circulation (food should not touch each other
and distance between food and rear wall should be kept).
You can increase storage capacity of frozen food by removing baskets
and, if present, Stop Frost shelf.
Do not worry about noises coming from the compressor which are
described as normal noises in this product’s Quick Guide.

FREEZER COMPARTMENT AND FOOD STORAGE
The freezer compartment
allows for the storage of
frozen food (for the period indicated on the packaging) and
the freezing of fresh food.
The quantity of fresh food that can be frozen in 24 hours is
written on the rating plate.
Arrange the fresh food in the freezing area inside the freezer
compartment, leaving enough space around the food
packages to allow air to circulate freely. It is advisable that
you do not re-freeze food that has partially defrosted. It is
important to wrap the food in a way that prevents the ingress
of water, humidity or condensation.
To get more volume, the freezer compartment can be used
without the grid. Make sure that the door is closed properly
after putting the food back on the grid.
ICE CUBES
Fill 2/3 of the ice tray with water and put it back in the freezer
compartment. Do not use sharp or pointed objects to remove
the ice under any circumstances.

HOW TO DEFROST THE FREEZER COMPARTMENT
1. It is advisable to set the temperature colder or turn on the
Fast Freeze four hours before removing the food from the
freezer compartment, to prolong the preservation of the
food during the defrosting phase.
2. To defrost, turn the appliance off and remove the
drawers. Put the frozen food in a cool place. Leave the
door open to allow the frost to melt. To prevent the water
from escaping during the defrost, it is advised that you
place an absorbent cloth on the bottom of the freezer
compartment and wring it out regularly.
3. Clean the inside of the freezer compartment and dry it
carefully.
4. Turn the appliance back on and put the food back inside.

Use & Care guide
FUNCTIONAL SOUNDS
1. A buzz generated by the compressor is normal while the
product is working.
2. Gurgling and crackles are generated by the passage of
the refrigerant gas inside the cooling circuit, therefore
these are normal noises.
4. Check that the balconies on the inside of the refrigerator
door, the shelves and the drawers in the refrigerator
compartment are attached and positioned properly, to
avoid possible vibrations.
5. Don’t place glass containers (bottles, jars, etc.) in direct
contact with each other, to avoid vibrations.
6. This device is equipped with a compressor that operates
at an optimum speed to minimize energy consumption.
So it may happen that in certain situations (in summer
or if large quantities of food are introduced) that the
compressor increases the speed and therefore it is more
noisy than usual.
3. It’s possible to" creaks when the compressor is active and
inactive: it is a normal sound of the product’s structure.
RECOMMENDATION IN CASE OF NO USE OF THE APPLIANCE
IN THE EVENT OF NON-USE OF THE APPLIANCE
Disconnect the appliance from the power supply, empty it,
defrost it (if necessary) and clean it.
Keep the doors slightly ajar to let air circulate inside the
compartments. By doing this, you avoid the development of
mould and bad odours.
IN THE EVENT OF AN INTERRUPTION TO THE
POWER SUPPLY
Keep the doors closed so the food stays cold for as long as
possible. Do not re-freeze food that has partially defrosted. If
there is a prolonged power cut, the black out alarm may also
activate (in products with electronics).
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Before any cleaning or maintenance operation, unplug the appliance from the mains or disconnect the electrical
power supply.
Never use abrasives. Never clean refrigerator parts with flammable fluids.
Do not use steam cleaners.
The buttons and control panel display must not be cleaned with alcohol or alcohol-derived substances, but with a
dry cloth.
Clean the appliance occasionally with a cloth and a solution
of warm water and neutral cleaning agents specifically for
cleaning the inside of the refrigerator.
