Appliance installation

Saving energy

Electrical connection

After installing your appliance, check that nothing has been damaged. Should you detect any possible damage to the appliance, please contact your appliance salesman immediately.

Do not disperse packaging material such as plastic bags, polystyrene strips, etc., around the environment. Keep such material away from children.

If the appliance has been transported in a horizontal position, do not plug in the appliance but wait for a few hours

in order to allow the oil to flow back into the compressor. Place the appliance in a dry and aerated environment, duly protected from weather elements. Avoid placing your appliance on balconies, verandas, terraces. Excessive heat during summer and cold during winter could alter the good functioning operation of the appliance or even damage it altogether.

Do not position your appliance near a source of heat like an oven or a central heating plant.

Do not place your appliance next to other pieces of furniture, but leave at least a 3 to 5 cm space on the sides and 10 cm on the top.

Keep your appliance away from the wall by inserting spacers at the back of the said appliance.

Adjust the front legs so that the appliance will lean slightly backwards, to allow the door to close properly.

Clean your refrigerator compartment with a solution of sodium bicarbonate dissolved in water

(1 spoon for every 4 litres of water). Do not use alcohol, abrasive powders or detergents, as these could ruin the surface.

This appliance works best when the ambient temperature is between 16 °C and 32 °C.

The first way to save electricity is to select the correct place for appliance installation as specified above under installation instructions.

The second way to save electricity is to prevent heat from entering the refrigerator compartments. Keep the refrigerator doors open for as little time as possible and never store hot food inside, like soups or similar dishes in particular, as these will produce a great deal of steam. Periodically check the door gaskets. Ensure the perfect closure of the doors. Should this not be the case, please contact the Service Centre.

The third way to save electricity is to maintain the heat exchange parts in good condition.

Prevent condensation from accumulating in the refrigerator. Defrost the appliance whenever the frost thickness exceeds 1-2 cm. This is not necessary with NO-FROST appliances. Clean the condenser periodically as specified below in this Booklet.

Please ensure that the voltage (Volt, V) of the mains socket matches the indications on the data plate which you will find inside your appliance.

Should the socket and the appliance plug not be compatible, do not use adapters, multiple plugs or extensions, but have the socket replaced with another suitable kind by qualified personnel.

The socket which feeds the appliance must be kept operational for future operations

(cleaning, defrosting, etc.).

Should the cable become damaged, replace it timeously by contacting specialized Service

Centres for the purchase and assembly of the said cable.

Electric safety of this appliance is assured only when it has been connected to a perfectly effective earthing installation as specified in the electric safety norms in force.

Starting procedure

Important: if the appliance has been transported to your house in a horizontal position, please wait for a few hours before plugging in the appliance to allow oil to flew back into the compressor.

Proceed with the Internal cleaning , then connect the appliance to the electric socket without using an adaptor (see Electrical connection).

Adjust the thermostats to the food preservation position of your choice (see Instructions for fridge-freezer use).

14

USE OF THE APPLIANCE

Thermostat Adjustment

To adjust the internal temperature, turn the thermostat KNOB positioned on the controls section. Position 1 corresponds to milder temperatures. For colder temperatures turn knob to higher numbers. Normally, an intermediate position will be appropriate.

To switch the appliance off, turn the thermostat knob to the 0/STOP position.

WARNING: the appliance remains "live"!

The internal temperatures are influenced by ambient temperatures, according to how many times the refrigerator door has been opened and the quantity of food placed in the refrigerator. You can choose the perfect temperature accordingly.

In extreme ambient conditions, it is best to use the thermostat differently.

When the room temperature is very hot (e.g. in summer) we recommend adjusting the knob to the lower numbers. On the other hand, with cold room temperatures, we recommend adjusting the knob to higher numbers.

In order to preserve foodstuffs properly, store them in the correct refrigeration compartment, as there are areas in the refrigerator where the temperature is colder than in others .

Packaged foodstuffs and other food that has been packed on the shelves must not touch the back wall of the appliance.

Freezing

Important notice

If you purchase frozen foodstuffs verify that:

• the packing has boon well sealed and not mishandled or damaged;

• there are no iced lenses (this means that the product has already been oven partially thawed);

• the processing date and dates relevant to the type of freezer have boon clearly marked (yours is * * * * );

• in the meantime the products have not thawed, not oven partially;

Never put into your mouth frozen products that have just been taken out of the freezer

(ice-cream, ice-blues, ice cubes, etc.), where the low temperature to which they have been subjected may cause ice burns and possible tongue damage.

In case of prolonged current absence transfer the frozen foodstuffs into another working freezer.

If the food stuffs have been thawed, even partially, you may re-freeze them only after having cooked them!

Freezing

Ensure that your freezing operations are carried out under the most hygienic conditions as freezing alone does not sterilise the food. It is advisable to freeze the food by packing it into separate meal portions and not in bulk form. Never put hot or even warm foodstuffs into the freezer! Prior to storing the frozen food, pack it in plastic bags, polyethylene sheets, aluminium foil or freezing containers (this material is found on the market and is labelled

“suitable for freezing”). Each pack or container, etc. which you will store into the freezer must follow the instructions below:

• freezing date and expiry date;

• number of portions;

• the glass containers must be of the Pyrex type and MUST NEVER be filled to the brim:

(freezing expands liquids);

• the packs must be pressed down for air elimination within and must be as flat as possible;

• all frozen food packs, whatever the type, must be closed in order to protect the food.

The maximum quantity of food which can be stored within a period of 24 hours is shown on the data table. Never store a higher quantity of food than indicated.

Do not place fresh foodstuffs next to frozen food. This would cause an increase in the temperature of the frozen foodstuffs.

For freezing foodstuffs, position the products on the inside grid of the freezing compartment.

The maximum quantity of food which can be stored within a period of 24 hours is shown on the data table (fig. 20, page 15). Never store a higher quantity of food than indicated.

15

Defreezing

Defrosting

Cleaning

Defrost foodstuffs for immediate use only. Defrosting can be carried out in the following four manners:

• inside the refrigerator;

• in ambient temperatures;

• inside an oven at 40/50° or in a micro-wave oven;

• directly by cooking.

Defrosting in the refrigerator is a slower but safer operation and allows you to save electricity.

The freezing temperature of the foodstuff is released into the refrigerator during defrosting.

Defrosting of the refrigerator

This is an automatic operation and the water which is formed is discharged through the

DRAINAGE OUTLET into the COLLECTION TRAY. The water will then evaporate through the heat transmitted by the COMPRESSOR.

Defrosting of the freezer

Defrost every time you notice the formation of frost or ice 5-6 mm. thick. This layer of ice will reduce the freezing power and will increase energy consumption.

Wrap the frozen food in newspaper and then cover out with wrappers (insulated bags or boxes are also suitable). Place them in a cool place, preferably in the fridge, awaiting to be put into the freezer again. Before carrying out any other operation unplug the electric current.

You may hasten this process by placing inside the freezer a pot with hot water isolating it from the bottom with a small wooden board.

Do not use heaters, hairdryers or other electrical appliances, knives or any other metal objects. You may damage the freezer beyond repair.

Once the defrosting has been completed, in order to carry out cleaning operation and re-packing the freezer you have to strictly follow the instructions.

Internal cleaning

Before carrying out any other operation, unplug the freezer. Clean both the refrigerator and the freezer by using sodium bicarbonate dissolved in water (1 spoonful every 4 litres of water).

DO NOT USE ABRASIVE DETERGENTS.

Rinse off with water and dry with a cloth. Plug into the socket. Turn the knob to the conservation temperature position. Wait 3-4 hours before placing food inside.

External cleaning

Before carrying out any other operation, unplug the freezer. Use the same delicate method for external cleaning as you did for the internal cleaning. Remember to dust off the condenser placed at the back of the appliance. Use a dry brush or better still, a vacuum cleaner.

16

Minor breakdowns and anomalies

Before calling the Service department, check whether you can solve the problem through the following check-points:

Unusual noises

- You haven't regulated the base properly and so the freezer vibrates.

Reduced cooling power

- You have placed a larger quantity of food than advisable. You have opened the door too many times. The door has not been properly closed.

The appliance does not cool

- Check that the plug and socket are making contact. You may have blown a mains fuse. The main light switch has tripped. The thermostat is off, the knob is on "0" position.

The exterior of the appliance is hot

- This is NOT a defect, but helps to prevent formation of condensate on the external parts of the appliance.

White streaking on frozen meats

- The temperature is too low or you have not heeded the expiry dates indicated on the freezing chart.

Part-freezing

- Normally, products containing lots of sugar, fats and alcohol such as ice-creams or juices, do not freeze completely and remain partially soft.

Water droplets on the external walls of the appliance

- During the Spring and Autumn seasons, when the house heating is turned off, it may happen that the external walls of the appliance show some water droplets (condensate). This phenomenon does not interfere with the good functioning of the appliance and is not dangerous to people.

Frost build up inside

- The doors are not properly shut. You have opened the doors too often.

Water or ice droplets on the back vertical wall of the refrigerator compartment

- This is not a defect.

The door opens with difficulty

- It is normal for the door to offer some resistance to opening after being closed. This is to ensure a perfect seal of the doors. Wait a few minutes before opening once again.

The light inside the refrigerator is off

• Check the points detailed under “No cooling power”

• The refrigerator light is burnt out.

Replace bulb in this manner: unplug the electric current, prise open the light box with a screwdriver (it has been pressure fitted), (fig. L1); replace bulb with a similar one (max 15 WATT), (fig. L2); insert it into the light box. Remove the burnt-out bulb only if you have another to replace it.

Water droplets at the bottom of the refrigerator

The water drainage outlet is obstructed.

Clean it with the help of a small wire

(fig. L3).

Do not boil

(1) Put a bit of vinegar or lemon in the cooking water.

(2) Salt well before cooking.

(3) The vegetables become mushy during the thawing, owing to the high content of water in them. We advise freezing only if you intend consuming the cooked products.

Generally, the vegetables are better if they are cooked directly without thawing. Reduce the cooking times bearing in mind the boiling effected before freezing.

Fruit must be covered with

sugar

or syrup according to the cases. The quantity of sugar to use in order to preserve it is

about 250 gr. per kg of fruit

. Syrups are to be used in different percentages and they are prepared by boiling water with some sugar already melted in it.

The various concentration are:

30% solution, 450 gr. of sugar for every litre of water

40% solution, 650 gr. of sugar for every litre of water

50% solution, 800 gr. of sugar for every litre of water

To maintain the colour of the fruit unaltered, dip it into some lemon juice before covering it with sugar, or otherwise add some lemon juice to the syrup. Fruit to be freezed needs an hour in the fridge for setting before being placed into the freezer. The syrup must cover the fruit completely.

Before freezing butter and cheese, cut them into pieces for weekly consumption. Butter is preserved for

8 months

and so is hard cheese (parmesan). Other types of cheese need

4 months

. defreezing must be done in the fridge being careful about the condensation which logically forms on these products.
