“Fresh 0°” compartment
The “Fresh 0°” compartment is specifically designed to
maintain a low temperature and the correct humidity to
preserve fresh food for longer (for example, meat, fish).
Turning on and turning off the compartment.
The internal temperature of the compartment is approximately 0° when the compartment is turned on.
To turn on the compartment, press
the button shown in the figure for
more than one second until the
symbol lights up.
The lit symbol means that the
compartment is working. Press the
button again for more than one
second to turn off the compartment.
For the correct functioning of the “Fresh 0°” compartment, it is necessary that:
-- the refrigerator compartment is turned on
-- the temperature is between +2°C and +6°C
-- the drawer in the “Fresh 0°” compartment must be inserted for it to be turned on
-- one of the following special functions is not selected: Stand-by, Fast Cool, Vacation (if present), in this
case, remove the food contained in it.
Note:
-- if the symbol does not light up when you turn on the compartment, check that the drawer is properly
inserted; if the problem persists contact the authorised Technical Assistance Service.
-- if the compartment is turned on and the drawer is open, the symbol in the control panel may
automatically turn off. The symbol will light up again when the drawer is inserted
-- regardless of the state of the compartment, you may hear a faint noise, which you should consider as
normal
-- when the compartment is not in operation, the temperature inside it depends on the general
temperature of the refrigerator compartment. In this case, it is advised that fruits and vegetables that
are not sensitive to cold (berries, apples, apricots, carrots, spinach, lettuce, etc.) are stored in it.
Important: if the compartment is turned on and food with a high water content is present,
condensation may form on the shelves. In this case, turn the function off temporarily.
Be careful when positioning food and containers that are small in size on the upper shelf of the “Fresh
0°” compartment in order to prevent them accidentally falling between the shelf and the back wall of the
refrigerator compartment.
12
Removing the “Fresh 0°” compartment:
Carry out the following steps:
-- to make it easier to remove the compartment, we recommend that you empty (and possibly remove)
the lower door shelves
-- turn off the compartment
-- remove the compartment by rotating it upwards
-- remove the white plastic shelf under the compartment.
Note: it is not possible to remove the upper shelf and side supports.
To use the “Fresh 0°” compartment again, carefully reposition the white plastic shelf under the
compartment before inserting the drawer and turning the function back on.
To have a larger refrigerator volume and to reduce energy consumption, it is recommended that you
turn off the “Fresh 0°” compartment and remove the compartment.
Clean the compartment and its components occasionally using a cloth and a solution of warm water
(taking care not to submerge the white plastic shelf under the drawer) and neutral cleaning agents
specifically for cleaning the inside of the refrigerator. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents.
Before cleaning the compartment (also externally) it is necessary to remove the drawer to
disconnect the electrical supply for the compartment.

Food-storage tips
The refrigerator is the ideal storage location for
ready meals, fresh and preserved food, dairy
products, fruit and vegetables and beverage.
-- 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 (available on selected models).
-- 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.
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.

engines to regulate performances that switch
on and off automatically.
Some of the functional sounds can be reduced
through
-- Leveling the appliance and installing it on an
even surface
-- Separating and avoiding contact between the
appliance and furniture.
-- Checking if the internal components are
correctly placed.
-- Checking if bottles and containers are not in
contact with each other.
Some of the functional sounds you might hear:
-- A hissing sound when switching on the
appliance for the first time or after a long pause.
-- A gurgling sound when refrigerant fluid enters
into the pipes.

up food and to disconnect the appliance to save
energy.
POWER FAILURE
In the event of a power failure, call the local office
of your electricity supply company and ask how
long it is going to last.
Note: Bear in mind that a full appliance will stay
cold longer than a partially filled one.
If food is found to be in a poor condition, it is best
to throw it away.

Troubleshooting guide
BEFORE CONTACTING AFTER-SALES SERVICE…
Performance problems often result from little things you can find and fix yourself without tools of any
kind.
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
The appliance is not working:
-- Is the power cable plugged into a live socket
with the proper voltage?
-- Have you checked the protection devices and
fuses of the electrical system in your home?
If there is water in the defrost pan:
-- This is normal in hot, damp weather. The pan
can even be half full. Make sure the appliance is
level so that the water does not overflow.
If the edges of the appliance cabinet, which
come in contact with the door seal, are warm
to the touch:
-- This is normal in hot weather and when the
compressor is running.
If the light does not work:
-- Have you checked the protection devices and
fuses of the electrical system in your home?
-- Is the power cable plugged into a live socket
with the proper voltage?
-- In case the LEDs are broken the user must call
the Service for exchange of the same type
available only at our After-sales Service Centers
or authorized dealers.
If the motor seems to run too much:
-- Motor running time depends on different
things: number of door openings, amount of
food stored, temperature of the room, setting of
the temperature controls.
-- Is the condenser (back the appliance) free of
dust and fluff?
-- Are the door properly closed?
-- Are the door seals properly fitted?
-- On hot days or if the room is warm, the motor
naturally runs longer.
-- If the appliance door has been left open for a
while or if large amounts of food have been
stored, the motor will run longer in order to cool
down the interior of the appliance.
If the appliance temperature is too high:
-- Are the appliance controls correctly set?
-- Has a large amount of food been added to the
appliance?
-- Check that the door is not opened too often.
-- Check that the door close properly.
If the doors do not open and close properly:
-- Check that food packages are not blocking the
door.
-- Check that the internal parts or automatic
icemaker are not out of position.
-- Check that the door seals are not dirty or sticky.
-- Ensure the appliance is level.
