Normal energy
consumption
In a ventilated room.
Protected from direct sunlight.
Not near to a heat source (radiator,
oven).
Where the ideal ambient room
temperature is approx. 20°C.
Do not cover the ventilation gaps
and dust them regularly.

Drawers, shelves and racks
arranged as they were when the
appliance was delivered.
Only open the door when necessary
and for as short a time as possible.
Store food in an organised way.
Allow hot food and drinks to cool
down before placing them in the
appliance.
Store food covered or packaged.
Place frozen food in the refrigerator
to defrost.
Do not over-fill the appliance to
allow air to circulate.
Defrost the freezer section when a
layer of ice 0.5 cm thick (maximum)
has built up.
Increased energy
consumption
In an enclosed, unventilated room.
In direct sunlight.
Near to a heat source (radiator,
oven).
Where there is a high ambient room
temperature.
With a high setting: the lower the
temperature in the compartment, the
higher the energy consumption.
On appliances with winter setting,
please make sure that the winter
setting is switched off when the
ambient temperature is warmer than
16 °C .
Frequent opening of the door for
long periods will cause a loss of
coldness.
Searching for an item will mean the
door is open for longer.
Hot food will cause the compressor
to run for a long time, as the
appliance will have to work harder
to reduce the temperature.
The evaporation or condensation of
liquids will cause a loss of coldness
in the refrigerator.
A layer of ice hinders the cold from
reaching the frozen food, and
increases energy consumption.
