supply. The plug must
therefore be easily
accessible after installation.
3.2 Location
Refer to the installation
instructions for the
installation.
CAUTION!
If you position the appliance
against the wall, use back
spacers provided or keep
the minimum distance
indicated in the installation
instructions.
To ensure appliance's best functionality,
you should not install the appliance in the
nearby of the heat source (oven, stoves,
radiators, cookers or hobs) or in a place
with direct sunlight. Make sure that air
can circulate freely around the back of
the cabinet.
CAUTION!
If you install the appliance
next to a wall, refer to the
installation instructions to
understand the minimum
distance between the wall
and the side of the appliance
where door hinges are to
provide enough space to
open the door when the
internal equipment is
removed (e.g. when
cleaning).
To ensure best performance, if the
appliance is positioned below an
overhanging wall unit, the minimum
distance between the top of the cabinet
shall be maintained. Ideally, however,
the appliance should not be positioned
below overhanging wall units. One or
more adjustable feet at the base of the
cabinet ensure that the appliance stands
level.
3.3 Positioning
This appliance is not intended to be used
as a built-in appliance.
3.4 Electrical connection
•
This appliance should be installed in a
dry, well ventilated indoor position.
This appliance is intended to be used at
ambient temperature ranging from 10°C
to 43°C.
If, due to different installation, proper
ventilation requirements are not
respected, the appliance will function
correctly but energy consumption might
increase slightly.
•
•
•
Before plugging in, ensure that the
voltage and frequency shown on the
rating plate correspond to your
domestic power supply.
The appliance must be earthed. The
power supply cable plug is provided
with a contact for this purpose. If the
domestic power supply socket is not
earthed, connect the appliance to a
separate earth in compliance with
current regulations, consulting a
qualified electrician.
The manufacturer declines all
responsibility if the above safety
precautions are not observed.
This appliance complies with the
E.E.C. Directives.

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.

6. HINTS AND TIPS
6.1 Hints for energy saving
•
•
•
•
•
Most efficient use of energy is
ensured in the configuration with the
drawers in the bottom part of the
appliance and shelves evenly
distributed. Position of the door bins
does not affect energy consumption.
Do not open the door frequently or
leave it open longer than necessary.
Do not set too high temperature to
save energy unless it is required by
the characteristics of the food.
If the ambient temperature is high and
the temperature control is set to low
temperature and the appliance is fully
loaded, the compressor may run
continuously, causing frost or ice
formation on the evaporator. In this
case, set the temperature control
toward higher temperature to allow
automatic defrosting and to save
energy this way.
Ensure a good ventilation. Do not
cover the ventilation grilles or holes.
•
•
•
•
6.3 Hints for food refrigeration
•
•
•
6.2 Hints for fresh food
refrigeration
•
•
•
•
•
The medium temperature setting
ensures good preservation of fresh
food.
Higher temperature setting inside the
appliance may lead to shorter shelf
life of food.
Cover the food with packaging to
preserve its freshness and aroma.
Always use closed containers for
liquids and for food, to avoid flavours
or odours in the compartment.
To avoid the cross-contamination
between cooked and raw food, cover
the cooked food and separate it from
the raw one.
It is recommended to defrost the food
inside the fridge.
Do not insert hot food inside the
appliance. Make sure it has cooled
down at room temperature before
inserting it.
To prevent food waste the new stock
of food should always be placed
behind the old one.
•
•
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.
Fruit and vegetables: clean thoroughly
(eliminate the soil) and place in a
special drawer (vegetable drawer).
It is advisable not to keep the exotic
fruits like bananas, mangos, papayas
etc. in the refrigerator.
Vegetables like tomatoes, potatoes,
onions, and garlic should not be kept
in the refrigerator.
Butter and cheese: place in an airtight
container or wrap in an aluminium foil
or a polythene bag to exclude as
much air as possible.
Bottles: close them with a cap and
place them on the door bottle shelf, or
(if available) on the bottle rack.
Always refer to the expiry date of the
products to know how long to keep
them.
7. CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
7.1 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 brandnew product, then dried thoroughly.
CAUTION!
Do not use detergents,
abrasive powders, chlorine
or oil-based cleaners as they
will damage the finish.
12
www.electrolux.com
CAUTION!
The accessories and parts of
the appliance are not
suitable for washing in a
dishwasher.
It is important to periodically clean the
defrost water drain hole in the middle of
the refrigerator compartment channel to
prevent the water overflowing and
dripping onto the food inside.
7.2 Periodic cleaning
The equipment has to be cleaned
regularly:
1. Clean the inside and accessories
with lukewarm water and some
neutral soap.
2. Regularly check the door seals and
wipe them clean to ensure they are
clean and free from debris.
3. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
7.3 Defrosting of the
refrigerator
7.4 Period of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long
period, take the following precautions:
Frost is automatically eliminated from the
evaporator of the refrigerator
compartment 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.
1. Disconnect the appliance from
electricity supply.
2. Remove all food.
3. Clean the appliance and all
accessories.
4. Leave the door open to prevent
unpleasant smells.
