HOW TO USE THE APPLIANCE
FIRST TIME USE
Wait at least two hours, after the installation, before
connecting the appliance to the power supply .
Connect the appliance to the power supply it starts the
operation automatically . The ideal storage temperatures for
the food are preset in the factory .
REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT AND FOOD STORAGE
The refrigerator compartment allows for the storage of
fresh food and drink . The refrigerator compartment defrosts
completely automatically . The occasional presence of drops
of water on the internal back wall of the compartment is a
sign of the automatic defrosting phase . The defrosting water
is channelled into a drain and then collected in a container,
where it evaporates .
Note: the ambient temperature, how often the doors are
opened and the position of the appliance may affect the internal
temperatures in the two compartments. Set the temperatures
depending on these factors.
In very humid conditions, condensation may form in the
refrigerator compartment, especially on the glass shelves.
HOW TO STORE FRESH FOOD AND BEVERAGE
Foods which give off a large amount ethylene gas (apples,
apricots, pears, peaches, avocado, figs, prunes, blueberries,
mellons, beans) and those that are sensitive to this gas, such
as fruit vegetables and salad, should always be separated or
wrapped so as not to reduce the storage life; for example do
not store tomatoes together with kiwi fruits or cabbage .
Do not store food too close together to enable sufficient air
circulation . Use recyclable plastic, metal, aluminum and glass
containers and cling film to wrap foods .
After turning the appliance on, you must wait for 4-6 hours
for the correct storage temperature to be reached for a
normally filled appliance . Position the antibacterial antiodour
filter in the fan as demonstrated in the filter packaging (if
In this case, it is recommended that you close containers with
liquids in (e.g. a pot of stock), wrap up food with a high water
content (e.g. vegetables) and turn on the fan, if there is one.
All of the drawers, door shelves and shelves can be removed.
The natural circulation of air in the refrigerator compartment
results in zones with different temperatures . It is coldest
directly above the fruits and vegetables crisper and at the
rear wall . It is warmest at the top front of the compartment .
Insufficient ventilation results in an increase in energy
consumption and reduction of the refrigerating performance .
If you have a little quantity of food to store in the refrigerator,
we recommend to use the shelves above the crisper for
fruits and vegetables since this is the coolest area of the
compartment . Always use closed containers for liquids and
for food that may give off or be tainted by odor or flavor
transfer or cover them . To avoid bottles falling over, you can
use the bottle holder (available on selected models) .
