Switching on
1. Insert the plug into the wall socket.
2. Turn the Temperature regulator
clockwise to a medium setting.
Switching off
To turn off the appliance, turn the
temperature regulator to the "O" position.
Temperature regulation
The temperature is regulated
automatically. However, you can set a
temperature inside the appliance yourself.
• room temperature,
• frequency of opening the door,
• quantity of food stored,
• appliance location.
A medium setting is generally the most
suitable one.
To operate the appliance:
1. Turn the temperature regulator
clockwise to obtain a lower
temperature inside the appliance.
2. Turn the temperature regulator
counterclockwise to obtain a higher
temperature inside the appliance.
Choose the setting keeping in mind that
the temperature inside the appliance
depends on:
WARNING! Refer to Safety
Freezing fresh food
The freezer compartment is suitable for
freezing fresh food and storing frozen and
deep-frozen food for a long time.
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
1. Gradually pull the shelf up until it
comes free.
2. Reposition as required.
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).
Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped
with a series of runners so that the
shelves can be positioned as desired.
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
Small pieces may even be cooked still
frozen, directly from the freezer: in this
case, cooking will take longer.
Do not move the glass shelf
above the vegetable drawer to
ensure correct air circulation.
Positioning the door shelves
To permit storage of food packages of
various sizes, the door shelves can be
placed at different heights.
Normal operating sounds
The following sounds are normal during
• A faint gurgling and bubbling sound
from coils sound when refrigerant is
• A whirring and pulsating sound from
the compressor when refrigerant is
• A sudden cracking noise from inside
appliance caused by thermic dilatation
(a natural and not dangerous physical
• 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
Hints for fresh food refrigeration
• Do not store warm food or evaporating
liquids in the refrigerator.
• 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
• Freeze only top quality, fresh and
thoroughly cleaned food products.
• For more efficient freezing and thawing
divide food into small portions.
• Wrap the food in aluminium foil or
polythene. Make sure that the
packages are airtight.
• To avoid increase in temperature of
already frozen food, do not place fresh
unfrozen food directly next to it.
• Lean foods store better and longer than
fatty ones. Salt reduces the storage life
of food.
• Do not eat ice cubes, water ices or ice
lollies immediately after taking them out
of the freezer. Risk of frostbites.
• It is advisable to show the freezing date
on each individual pack to enable you
to keep tab of the storage time.
Hints for storage of frozen food
• Make sure that the commercially frozen
food products were adequately stored
by the retailer.
• Make sure that frozen foodstuffs are
transferred from the food store to the
freezer in the shortest possible time.
• Once defrosted, food deteriorates
rapidly and cannot be refrozen.
• Do not exceed the storage period
indicated by the food manufacturer.
WARNING! Refer to Safety
General warnings
CAUTION! Unplug the
appliance before carrying out
any maintenance operation.
This appliance contains
hydrocarbons in its cooling unit;
maintenance and recharging
must therefore only be carried
out by authorized technicians.
Cleaning the air channels
1. Remove the plinth (A), then the
ventilation grid (B).
The accessories and parts of
the appliance are not suitable
for washing in a dishwasher.
Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first
time, the interior and all internal
accessories should be washed with
lukewarm water and some neutral soap to
remove the typical smell of a brand-new
product, then dried thoroughly.
CAUTION! Do not use
detergents, abrasive powders,
chlorine or oil-based cleaners
as they will damage the finish.
Periodic cleaning
CAUTION! Do not pull, move
or damage any pipes and/or
cables inside the appliance.
CAUTION! Do not damage the
cooling system.
The equipment has to be cleaned
1. Clean the inside and accessories with
lukewarm water and some neutral
2. Regularly check the door seals and
wipe them clean to ensure they are
clean and free from debris.
3. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
4. If accessible, clean the condenser and
the compressor at the back of the
appliance with a brush.
This will improve the performance of
the appliance and save electricity
2. Clean the ventilation grid.
3. Carefully pull the air deflector out (C),
checking that there is no water left
from the defrosting.
4. Clean the lower part of the appliance
with a vacuum cleaner.
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
It is important to periodically clean the
defrost water drain hole (F) situated under
the salad drawers to prevent the water
overflowing and dripping onto the food
inside. Use the special cleaner provided
(P), which you will find already inserted
into the drain hole.
Defrosting of 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
Defrost the freezer when the frost layer
reaches a thickness of about 3-5 mm.
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.
5. Switch on the appliance.
After three hours reload the previously
removed food into the freezer
Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long
periods, take the following precautions:
1. Disconnect the appliance from
electricity supply.
2. Remove all food.
3. Defrost the appliance (if necessary).
4. Clean the appliance and all
5. Leave the door/doors open to prevent
unpleasant smells.
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.
CAUTION! If you want to keep
the appliance switched on, ask
somebody to check it once in a
while to prevent the food inside
from spoiling in case of a
power failure.
