FanThe fan is pre-set to ON. You can turn the fan on/off by pressing the light button (as shown in figure 2) and at the same time the button C as shown in figure 3.The light will flash just once if the fan is OFF, or it will flash 3 times if the fan in ON. If the ambient temperature exceeds 27°C, or if drops of water are present on the glass shelves, it is essential to have the fan on to ensure the proper preservation of the food. Deactivation of the fan allows energy consumption to be optimised.

Fast Cooling function (Fast Cooling)To quickly cool the refrigerator compartment, or 6 hours before putting a large quantity of food to be frozen in the freezer compartment, turn on the “Fast Cooling” function by repeatedly pressing the button C until the 3 icons flash green and then stay constant.The function automatically turns off after 30 hours and the temperature returns to the previous setting when the function is turned on.To turn the function off manually, press the button.

Note:Avoid a direct contact between the fresh food and the food that is already frozen. To optimize the freezing speed, the lower drawer can be removed and the food can be placed directly on the bottom of the compartment.

Refrigerator compartmentDefrosting of the refrigerator compartment is completely automatic.The formation of water droplets on the rear internal wall of the refrigerator compartment indicates that the automatic defrosting is underway.The defrost water automatically runs into a drain outlet and then into a container from where it evaporates.

Caution! The refrigerator accessories must not be placed in adishwasher.

Freezer compartmentThis appliance is a refrigerator with a star freezer compartment.Packaged frozen food can be stored for the period of time indicated on the packaging.Once defrosted, food must be used within 24 hours.

Removing the freezer drawersPull the drawers all the way out, lift them up and remove.

Note:: to maximize available space, the freezer compartment can also be used without the drawers inserted. Arrange the fresh food in the freezing area, leaving enough space around it to allow air to circulate freely. Avoid fresh food to come into direct contact with frozen food. After placing food in the compartment, make sure the freezer compartment door closes properly.Load limits are determined by baskets, flaps, drawers, shelves etc. Make sure that these components can still close easily after loading.

Making ice cubesFill the ice cube tray 2/3 full with water and place it in the freezer compartment. Do not use sharp or pointed instruments to detach the tray.

Helpful hints and tips

Cleaning and maintenanceRegularly clean the appliance with a cloth and a solution of hot water and neutral detergent specifically formulated for refrigerator interiors. Do not use abrasive cleaners or tools. Use the tool provided to regularly clean the defrost water drain outlet, located on the rear wall of the refrigerator compartment near the crisper draw, in order to ensure defrost water is removed correctly (see Fig. 1).Before servicing or cleaning the appliance, unplug it from the mains or disconnect the power supply.The push in gasket allows it to be cleaned easily, simply removing it from its place, starting from the upper corner part as shown, and then reinserting it using the reverse procedure used to remove it.

Defrosting the freezer compartmentIt is perfectly normal for ice to form. The amount of ice which forms and the rate at which it accumulates will depend on ambient temperature and humidity, and on the frequency of door opening.Set the coldest temperature four hours before removing food from the freezer compartment, so as to extend the storage time of food during defrosting. To defrost, switch the appliance off and remove the drawers. Place the frozen food in a cool place.Leave the freezer door open to allow the frost to melt. To prevent water leaking onto the floor during defrosting, place an absorbent cloth on the bottom of the freezer compartment and wring it out regularly.Clean the interior of the freezer. Rinse and dry carefully. Switch the appliance on again and place food back in the freezer  compartment.

Food storageWrap food to protect it from any water, humidity or condensation; this will prevent the spread of any odours in the refrigerator, while also ensuring better storage of frozen food. Never place warm food in the freezer. Cooling hot foods before freezing saves energy and prolongs the life of the appliance.

If the event of prolonged disuseDisconnect the appliance from the power supply, remove all food, defrost and clean the appliance. Leave the doors open just enough to allow air to circulate inside the compartments. This will prevent the formation of mould and unpleasant odours.

In the event of a power cutKeep the doors of the appliance closed. This will allow the food to stay cold as long as possible. If food has defrosted even partially, do not re-freeze it. Consume within 24 hours.
