Check that the drain hose at the rear of the cabi-

 

net discharges into the drip tray.

 

DAILY USE

Movable shelves

The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with a series of shelves support so that the shelves can be positioned as desired.

Some shelves must be lifted up by the rear edge to enable them to be removed.

Do not move the glass shelf above the vegetable drawer to ensure correct air circulation.

Vegetable Drawer

The drawer is suitable for storing fruit and vegetables.

Some models have a separator inside the drawer that can be placed in different positions to allow for the subdivision best suited to personal needs.

All parts inside the drawer can be removed for cleaning purposes.

10 Daily use

Bottle rack

Place the bottles (with the opening facing front) in the pre-positioned shelf.

If the shelf is positioned horizontally, place only closed bottles.

This bottle holder shelf can be tilted in order to store previously opened bottles. To obtain this result, pull the shelf up so it can rotate upwards and be placed on the next higher level.

Clean Air Control Filter

Your appliance is equipped with a carbon filter behind the air lever flap.

Helpful hints and tips

 

11

 

 

Positioning the door shelves

To permit storage of food packages of various sizes, the door shelves can be placed at different heights.

To make these adjustments proceed as follows: Gradually pull the shelf in the direction of the arrows until it comes free, then reposition as required.

Do not move the big lower door shelf to ensure correct air circulation.

HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS

Hints for energy saving

Do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than absolutely necessary.

If the ambient temperature is high and the Temperature Regulator is set to low temperature and the appliance is fully loaded, the compressor may run continuously, causing frost or ice on the evaporator. If this happens, set the Temperature Regulator toward warmer settings to allow automatic defrosting and so a saving in electricity consumption.

Hints for fresh food refrigeration

To obtain the best performance:

do not store warm food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator

do 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 polythene bags and place on the glass shelf above the vegetable drawer.

For safety, store in this way only one or two days at the most.

Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc..: these should be covered and may be placed on any shelf.

12 Care and cleaning

Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly cleaned and placed in the special drawer(s) provided.

Butter and cheese: these should be placed in special airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.

Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be stored in the bottle rack on the door. Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not packed, must not be kept in the refrigerator.

Hints for temperature inside the fridge

A suitable temperature inside the fridge is approx. +5° C. When the temperature regulator is set to +5°C this represents the mean temperature in the fridge. It is normal with higher temperature in the top of the fridge.

If the temperature regulator is set to a cold tem-

 

perature, the ambient temperature is high or if

 

the fridge is fully loaded the compressor will run

A

for a longer time. It too cold, change to a higher

 

temperature setting.

 

Do not place food against or close to the temperature sensor. This can result in too cold temperatures.

If you want to check the temperature of food stored in the refrigerator, place a glass of water centrally in the cabinet, and put a proper thermometer with an accuracy of +/– 1 °C into it. After 6 hours the temperature can be monitored. The measuring shall be performed under steadystated conditions (without changing the load).

CARE AND CLEANING

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.

Care and cleaning

 

13

 

 

Periodic cleaning

The equipment has to be cleaned regularly:

clean the inside and accessories with lukewarm water and some neutral soap.

regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure they are clean and free from debris.

rinse and dry thoroughly.

Do not pull, move or damage any pipes and/or cables inside the cabinet.

Never use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning products or wax polishes to clean the interior as this will damage the surface and leave a strong odour.

Clean the condenser (black grill) and the compressor at the back of the appliance with a brush. This operation will improve the performance of the appliance and save energy consumption.

Take care of not to damage the cooling system.

When moving the cabinet, lift it by the front edge to avoid scratching the floor.

Many proprietary kitchen surface cleaners contain chemicals that can attack/damage the plastics used in this appliance. For this reason use a soft cloth rinsed in warm water and neutral soap emulsion for cleaning external surfaces.

Do not use detergents or abrasive paste as these will damage the paint, or stainless steel anti finger print coating.

After cleaning, reconnect the equipment to the mains supply.

Replacing the Clean Air Control filter

To get the best performance replace the Clean Air Control filter once every year. New active filters can be purchased from your local dealer.

Refer to "Installation of the Clean Air Control filter" for instructions.

Cleaning the ventilation grille

The ventilation grille can be removed for washing. Make sure the door is open and then:

1.Loosen the upper edge of the grille by pulling outward/downward.

2.Pull the grille straight out to completely

remove it.

3. Vacuum clean under the cabinet.

14 What to do if…

Defrosting 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 drain hole into a special container at the back of the appliance, over the motor compressor, where it evaporates.

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.

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 and clean the appliance and all accessories

4.leave the door/doors open to prevent unpleasant smells.

If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to check it once in a while to prevent the food inside from spoiling in case of a power failure.

WHAT TO DO IF…

During operation of the appliance some smaller but annoying trouble can often occur, which does not require calling a technician out. In the following chart information is given about them to avoid unnecessary charges on service.

The operation of the appliance goes with certain sounds (compressor and circulating sound). This not means a trouble, but a normal operation.

The appliance operates discontinuously, so the stopping of compressor does not mean being no current. That is why you must not touch the electrical parts of the appliance before breaking the circuit.
