Use of the fridge compartment

Setting the temperature

The temperature within the appliance is controlled by
the thermostat control knob situated at the top of the
To operate the appliance proceed as follows:
Turn the thermostat control beyond the «O» position.
= minimum coldness
Position G = maximum coldness
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
The intermediate position is usually the most
The thermostat control regulates the temperature
both within the fridge and the freezer compartment.
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the appliance depends on the following
– room temperature
– how often the door is opened
– how much food is stored
– position of the appliance

Shopping Function

If you need to insert a large amount of warm food, for
example after doing the grocery shopping, we suggest
activating the Shopping function to chill the products
more rapidly and to avoid warming the other food
which is already in the refrigerator and/or freezer.
The shopping function is activated by pressing key C
(several times if necessary) until the corresponding
icon appears
The shopping function shuts off automatically after
approximately 6 hours.
It is possible to de-activate the function at any time by
pressing key C (see paragraph "Function Activation").

Fresh food refrigeration

To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; cover
or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong flavour.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & chicken or poultry):
wrap in polythene bags and place on the glass shelf
above the salad drawers.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the salad drawers.
Butter & 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.

Door open acoustic alarm

An acoustic alarm will sound when the door is left
open for around 5 minutes.
The door open alarm conditions are indicated by:
- flashing symbol (1);
- red display illumination;
- beeping sound.
Press the button (C) to stop the acoustic alarm.
When normal conditions are restored (door closed):
- the acoustic alarm will stop.

Normal Operating Sounds

You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils
or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is
being pumped round, and you will hear a whirring
sound or pulsating noise from the compressor.
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you
will hear a faint 'click' when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
