The freezer compartment
maintains the storage temperature
for 12 hours even in case of power failure: during this time we
suggest to leave the door of the compartment
closed.
- Do not refreeze
partially thawn foods.
THAWING
Here are some basic suggestions:
Raw vegetables:
do not thaw, put straight into boiling water
and cook as usual.
Meat
(large
cuts):
thaw in the refrigerator
compartment
without
unwrapping
them. Before cooking
leave at room
temperature
for some hours, or defrost in a microwave
oven
following the manufacturer's
recommendations.
(small cuts): thaw at room temperature
or cook directly.
Fish: thaw in the refrigerator compartment
without unwrapping
or cook directly before being completely
thawed.
Previously cooked foods: re-heat in the oven without removing
from its aluminium container.
Fruit: thaw in the refrigerator compartment.
NOTE: Do not store liquids in glass containers
in the freezer.
PRODUCTION
OF ICE CUBES
Fill the trays 314 of their depth and place them in the ice
compartment,
whose door can be opened lifting and sliding it
towards the inside of the appliance
(Fig. 12).
Attention:
Do not eat ice cubes or ice lollies immediately
after
their removal from the freezer as they may give rise to "cold"
burns.
AUTOMATIC
ICE MAKER (OPTIONAL)
The automatic
ice maker (Fig. 13) can be obtained
by our
Service Centres.
Here are some suggestions
to operate it:
- The ON/OFF lever is a wire signal arm.
Down... for making ice automatically.
Up... to shut off the ice maker.
NOTE: Do not turn ice maker on until it is connected
to the
watersupply.

-The lever on the side of the ice maker changes the size of the
cubes.
- Shake the bin occasionally
to keep cubes separated, and to
obtain increased storage capacity.
- It is normal for ice crescents to be attached by a corner. They
will break apart easily.
- You will hear water running when ice maker is working, You'll
hear ice fall into the bin. Don't let these sounds bother you.
-The ice maker will not operate until the freezer is cold enough
to make ice. This can take overnight.
- Because of new plumbing connections,
the first ice may be
Efiloured
or off-flavored.
Discard the first few batches of
- If ice is not being made fast enough and more ice is needed,
turn the Refrigerator Control toward a higher number. Wait a
day and, if necessary, turn the Freezer Control toward A.
- If you remove the ice bin, raise the signal arm to shut off the
ice maker. When you return the bin, push it all the way in and
lower the arm to the ON position.
- If cubes are stored too long, they may develop an off-flavor...
like stale water. Throw them away. They will be replaced.
Cubes in the ice bin can also become smaller by evaporation.
- Good water quality is important for good ice quality. It is not
recommended
that the ice maker be connected to a softened
water supply. Water softener chemicals
such as salt from a
malfunctioning
softener can damage the ice maker mold and
lead to poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be
avoided, then it is important that the water softener be well
maintained
and operating
properly.

Unplug the refrigerator and clean it... rinse well and dry. Leave
the doors open far enough for the air to get in. This will keep
odour and mold from building up.
ENERGY SAVING TIPS
You can help your refrigerator to use less electricity:
- Check the door gaskets. Level the appliance to be sure of a
good seal.
- Clean the condenser
regularly.
- Open the door as few times as possible. Close the door as
soon as food is removed.
- Fill the refrigerator but do not overcrowd it, leave air circulate
inside.
- It is waste of electricity to set the refrigerator and freezer to
temperatures
colder than they need to be.
- Keep the Exterior Moisture Control to position OFF unless
moisture forms on refrigerator exterior.
- Make sure that your refrigerator
is not near a heat source
such as a range, water heater, furnace, radiator or in direct
sunlight.
