Warning! Refer to Safety chapters.
Freezing fresh food
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.
The freezer compartment is suitable for freezing fresh
food and storing frozen and deep-frozen food for a long
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).
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 coldness.
Caution! In this condition, the
refrigerator compartment temperature
might drop below 0°C. If this occurs
reset the temperature regulator to a
warmer setting.
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.
Positioning the door shelves
To permit storage of food packages of various sizes, the
door shelves can be placed at different heights.
Gradually pull the shelf up until it comes free.
Reposition as required.
Do not move the glass shelf above the
vegetable drawer to ensure correct air

Hints and tips
Normal operating sounds
Hints for refrigeration
The following sounds are normal during operation:
Useful hints:
A faint gurgling and bubbling sound from coils sound
when refrigerant is pumped.
A whirring and pulsating sound from the compressor
when refrigerant is pumped.
A sudden cracking noise from inside appliance
caused by thermic dilatation (a natural and not
dangerous physical phenomenon).
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 necessary.
Hints for fresh food refrigeration
Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids in the
Cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
Position food so that air can circulate freely around
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
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
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.
Care and cleaning
Warning! Refer to Safety chapters.
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.

clean to ensure they are clean and free from
Rinse and dry thoroughly.
If accessible, clean the condenser and the
compressor at the back of the appliance with a
This will improve the performance of the appliance
and save electricity consumption.
Cleaning the air channels
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
Caution! Do not use detergents,
abrasive powders, chlorine or oil-based
cleaners as they will damage the finish.
Periodic cleaning
Clean the ventilation grid.
Carefully pull the air deflector out (C), checking that
there is no water left from the defrosting.
Clean the lower part of the appliance with a
vacuum cleaner.
Caution! Do not pull, move or damage
any pipes and/or cables inside the
Caution! Do not damage the cooling
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 evaporates.
The equipment has to be cleaned regularly:
Clean the inside and accessories with lukewarm
water and some neutral soap.
Defrosting of the refrigerator
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.
Defrost the freezer when the frost layer reaches a
thickness of about 3-5 mm.
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.
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
5. Switch on the appliance.
After three hours reload the previously removed food
into the freezer compartment.
Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long periods, take
the following precautions:
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 compartment.
Disconnect the appliance from electricity supply.
Remove all food.
Defrost the appliance (if necessary).
Clean the appliance and all accessories.
Leave the door/doors open to prevent unpleasant
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.
