Storing, freezing and thawing food

INTRODUCTION

Wrap food so that no water, moisture or condensate can enter; this will prevent odours or aromas going from one part to another in the refrigerator, ensuring better preservation of frozen foods. Use plastic containers with hermetic lids, aluminium trays, aluminium foil, plastic film and waterproof plastic wraps.

NOTE : Never place hot food in the freezer. Allow hot foods to cool to room temperature for 30 minutes, then wrap and freeze. Cooling hot foods before freezing saves energy and prolongs the life of the appliance.

SEALING

When sealing food in bags, remove the air (liquids need space to expand). Fasten the top of the bag with a string. Put the label inside transparent bags; use self-adhesive labels for applying on the outside of opaque bags.

DEFROSTING

Useful suggestions.

RAW VEGETABLES : place directly in boiling water without thawing and cook normally.

MEAT (large cuts) : thaw in the refrigerator compartment without removing the wrapping. Before cooking, leave at room temperature for a couple of hours.

MEAT (small cuts) : thaw at room temperature or cook directly.

FISH : thaw in the refrigerator compartment without unwrapping or cook directly before completely thawed. In case of a power failure, the freezer compartment will maintain an adequate storage temperature for about 12 hours; during this period, it is advisable to keep the compartment door closed. Do not refreeze partially thawed food.

ALREADY COOKED FOOD : heat in the oven without removing it from the aluminium containers.

FRUIT : thaw in the refrigerator compartment.

FOOD STORAGE CHART

Using the ice and water dispenser

Ice Mode

The function is activated when the symbol is lit.

Press the ice mode button to select the symbol corresponding to the type of ice required (cubes or crushed); the symbol will light up.

Note: If the freezer compartment door is open, make sure the lever located inside is not blocked, since it prevents the transfer of ice from the automatic ice-maker to the container installed in the door.

Normal ice production should be about 7 to 8 batches of ice in a 24-hour period.

To dispense ice:

1. press the ice mode button and select the required type of ice.

2. press a rigid glass against the ice dispenser lever.

Hold the glass close to the dispenser opening so that ice does not fall outside of the glass

3. press lightly on the lever to activate the ice dispenser. Pressing hard will not result in faster dispensing or greater quantities

4. to stop dispensing, remove the glass slowly so that ice does not fall outside the glass

5. do not use fragile glasses to dispense ice.

Water dispensing

When the ice and water dispenser is used for the first time, the first ice cubes and water coming out of the dispenser may have an unpleasant taste and should therefore be discarded. It is advisable to repeat the operation also when the dispenser has not been used for some time.

To dispense water press a glass against the water dispenser lever, removing the glass to stop dispensing; at the same time the light inside the dispenser comes on, and goes off when the lever is released.

It is not necessary to press hard on the levers to activate the dispenser. Pressing hard will not result in faster dispensing or greater quantities.

Wait a few seconds before removing the glass, in order to catch the last few drops of water or pieces of ice.

The water and ice dispenser will not work when the freezer compartment door is open.

The ice comes from the automatic ice-maker container in the freezer compartment.

Using the automatic ice-maker

Advice on using the automatic ice-maker

If the freezer compartment door is open, make sure to keep the inside flap free, since it serves as a sensor for stopping the transfer of ice from the automatic ice-maker, to the bucket located in the inner door.

To remove and refit the ice bucket:

1. insert four fingers in the opening at the bottom of the bucket and place your thumb on the release button

2. holding the base of the bucket with both hands, press the release button and lift the bucket up and out. It is not necessary to turn the automatic ice-maker control to the OFF position: the automatic ice-maker will not produce ice if the bucket is not installed in the door.

3. Normal automatic ice production consists of about 7 to 9 batches of ice cubes in a 24-hour period.

IMPORTANT:

• Large amounts of ice cubes should be taken directly from the bucket, and not from the dispenser

• When selecting crushed ice, the cubes are crushed just before being dispensed, therefore the crushed ice may come out with a slight delay. Noise from the ice crusher is normal, and pieces of ice may vary in size. When changing from crushed ice to ice cubes, a small amount of crushed ice may come out together with the first cubes.After switching on the refrigerator, it usually takes overnight for the first ice cubes to form.

• When using the water dispenser, keep the rim of the glass near. Move the glass slowly to prevent the water from spilling.

17

Changing a water filter cartridge

The water filter is located below the freezer compartment door.

1. Locate the water filter cartridge cap in the front base grille below the freezer compartment door. Rotate the cap counterclockwise to a vertical position and pull the cap and filter cartridge out through the base grille.

NOTE: Since there is water in the cartridge, some spilling may occur.

2. Remove the cartridge cap by sliding it off the end of the old cartridge. The cap will slide to the left or right.

DO NOT DISCARD THE CAP .

3. Take the new cartridge out of its packaging and remove the protective cover from the o-rings.

4. Slide the cartridge cap onto the new cartridge as shown.

5. With cartridge cap in the vertical position, push the new filter cartridge into the base grille until it stops.

Rotate the cartridge cap clockwise to a horizontal position.

6. RUN WATER THROUGH THE DISPENSER

UNTIL THE WATER RUNS CLEAR (about 9-14 litres or 6-7 minutes). This will clean the system and clear air from the lines.

NOTE: as air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out of the dispenser.

Troubleshooting guide

Before contacting the Customer Care Centre...

Operation problems are often due to minor causes that can be found and fixed without using any tools.

Noises from the appliance are normal, since the fans and compressors for controlling its operation switch on and off automatically.

Some noises can be reduced by:

• levelling the appliance and installing it on a flat surface

• separating and preventing contact of the appliance with the cabinets

• making sure the inside parts are correctly positioned

• making sure the bottles and containers are not touching each other

Some possible operation noises:

• hissing when the appliance is switched on the first time or after a long period.

• gurgling when the refrigerant enters the pipes.

• humming when the water valve or fan are activated.

• rattling when the compressor starts up or when the ice drips in the bucket.

• a sudden thud when the compressor starts up or stops.

When you hear these noises...

...your appliance is alive!!!

The appliance does not work:

• Is the power cable plugged into a socket powered with the right voltage?

• Have you checked the protection devices and fuses of your home’s electrical system?

The motor seems to run too much:

• Is the condenser free of dust and fluff?

• Are the doors properly closed?

• Are the door seals intact?

• On hot days or when the room is warm, it is normal for the motor to run longer.

• If the appliance door has been left open for a long time or if large amounts of food have been introduced, the motor will run longer in order to cool the inside of the appliance.

19

Troubleshooting guide

If moisture has accumulated:

• Make sure the air ducts inside the compartment are not blocked and thus preventing the circulation of air.

• Make sure food is properly packaged. Dry any wet food containers before placing them in the appliance.

• Make sure the doors are not opened too frequently. When the door is opened, the moisture contained in the room air enters the appliance. The more often the door is opened, the faster moisture accumulates, especially if the room itself is very humid.

• If the room is very humid, it is normal for moisture to accumulate inside the appliance.

If there is water in the defrost pan:

• This is normal in hot and humid weather. The pan can even be half full. Make sure the refrigerator is level so that water does not spill from the pan.

If the appliance temperature is too high:

• Are the appliance controls correctly adjusted?

• Has a large amount of food been placed in the appliance?

• Make sure the doors are not opened too frequently.

• Check that the doors close properly.

• Make sure the air ducts inside the compartment are not blocked and thus preventing the circulation of cold air.

If the area in contact with the seal is hot to the touch:

• This is normal in hot weather and when the compressor is working.

If the doors do not open and close properly:

• Make sure no food packages are blocking the door.

• Make sure the inside parts or the automatic ice-maker are not incorrectly positioned.

• Make sure the door seals are not dirty or sticky.

• Make sure the appliance is level.

If the light does not work:

• Have you checked the protection devices and fuses of your home’s electrical system?

• Is the power cable plugged into a socket powered with the right voltage?

• Is the lamp burnt?

If the automatic ice-maker does not work:

• Has the freezer had enough time to become cold?

With a new appliance this may take overnight.

• Is the automatic ice-maker ON/OFF button set to ON?

• Make sure the lever of the automatic ice-maker, inside the freezer compartment, is not turned to OFF, i.e. in the horizontal position (in some models).

• Is water reaching the automatic ice-maker? Is the water cock open? The filter may be clogged or not correctly installed. Firstly, check the filter installation instructions to make sure the filter is correctly fitted and not clogged. If installation or clogging is not the problem, call qualified personnel or a technician.

If the dispenser does not work:

• Is the freezer compartment door closed?

• Is the ice bucket correctly installed?

Troubleshooting guide

If the automatic ice dispenser stops working:

• Are the ice cubes stuck because the automatic ice dispenser has not been used for some time? Shake the ice bucket to separate the cubes and increase the holding capacity. It is advisable to throw away the old ice cubes and make new ice.

• Has the ice dispenser lever been pressed for too long? Wait about 3 minutes for the dispenser motor to reset. Large amounts of ice cubes should be drawn directly from the bucket, and not through the dispenser.

If the ice has an unpleasant smell or taste:

• Has the ice absorbed bad odours? Is the quality of the water good? It is advisable to make new ice.

Throw away the old ice and make new ice. Keep excess ice in a covered container. Water containing minerals may require a filter.

• Is the food properly covered?

• Is the ice bucket/freezer compartment clean? Follow the instructions for the correct ice dispenser water supply.

• Are the pipes correctly connected to the ice dispenser? The first ice cubes coming out of the dispenser may have an unpleasant taste, therefore it is advisable to discard them and make new ice cubes.

If the dispenser does not dispense ice when the lever is pressed:

• Change the ice selection from cubes to crushed ice, or vice versa, in order to remove any ice blocks. If the dispenser still does not dispense ice, wait a couple of minutes and repeat the operation.

If there is condensate in the ice and water dispenser:

• Press the corresponding button to activate the anticondensate function.

Automatic ice-maker noises (in some models):

Since the appliance is equipped with an automatic ice-maker, you may hear a humming sound (coming from the water valve), water trickling and the sound of ice falling into the bucket.

Blown lamp:

1. Always unplug the appliance.

2. Refer to chapter “Maintenance and Cleaning”

IMPORTANT

• If ice is still not dispensed when the lever is pressed, wait a couple of minutes and repeat the operation.

• If there is condensate in the ice/water dispenser area, press the corresponding switch

(marked with A in the figure) to activate the anticondensate device.

If, on pressing the lever, the dispenser does not dispense, change the selection mode from cubes to crushed ice, or vice versa, in order to remove any ice blocks.
