5. CARE AND CLEANING

CAUTION!
Unplug the appliance before car-
rying out any maintenance oper-
ation.
This appliance contains hydrocar-
bons in its cooling unit; mainte-
nance and recharging must
therefore only be carried out by
authorized technicians.
5.1 Periodic cleaning
The equipment has to be cleaned regu-
larly:
• clean the inside and accessories with
lukewarm water and some neutral
soap.
• regularly check the door seals and
wipe clean to ensure they are clean
and free from debris.
• rinse and dry thoroughly.
Do not pull, move or damage
any pipes and/or cables inside
the cabinet.
Never use detergents, abrasive
powders, highly perfumed clean-
ing products or wax polishes to
clean the interior as this will dam-
age the surface and leave a
strong odor.
Clean the condenser (black grill) and the
compressor at the back of the appliance
with a brush. This operation will improve
the performance of the appliance and
save energy consumption.
Take care of not to damage the
cooling system.
When moving the cabinet, lift it
by the front edge to avoid
scratching the floor.
Many proprietary kitchen surface clean-
ers contain chemicals that can attack/
damage the plastics used in this appli-
ance. For this reason use a soft cloth
rinsed in warm water and neutral soap
emulsion for cleaning external surfaces.
Do not use detergents or abra-
sive paste as these will damage
the paint, or stainless steel anti
finger print coating.
After cleaning, reconnect the equipment
to the mains supply.
5.2 Cleaning the ice maker
When necessary, clean the surfaces of
the dispenser and the ice container that
are accessible from the outside, using
only a soft cloth and warm water.
Ensure that the ice container is thor-
oughly dry before being refitted.
Do not use detergents or abra-
sive paste.
5.3 Defrosting of the freezer
The freezer compartment of this model,
on the other hand, is a "no frost" type.
This means that there is no buildup of
frost when it is in operation, neither on
the internal walls nor on the foods.
The absence of frost is due to the con-
tinuous circulation of cold air inside the
compartment, driven by an automatically
controlled fan.
5.4 Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for
long periods, take the following precau-
tions:
1.
Switch of the ice maker
2.
Turn off the water connection
3.
Empty the ice container
Disconnect the appliance from elec-
4.
tricity supply
5.
Remove all food
6.
Clean the appliance and all accesso-
ries
7.
Leave the door/doors open to pre-
vent unpleasant smells.
When the ice maker starts again, do not
use ice produced during the first day to
ensure fresh taste.
