FIRST USE Connect the appliance to the mains power supply. The ideal temperatures for preserving food have already been set at the factory (3-5/MED). Note: After switching the appliance on, it will be necessary to wait for 2 to 3 hours before a temperature suitable for a standard appliance load is reached.
REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT Refrigerator compartment defrosting is completely automatic. Droplets of water on the rear wall inside the refrigerator compartment indicate that the automatic defrost phase is in progress. The defrost water is automatically run into a drain hole and collected in a container, where it evaporates.
STORING FOOD 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. Never place hot food in the freezer. Cooling hot foods before freezing saves energy and prolongs the life of the appliance.
