HOW TO OPERATE THE LOW TEMPERATURE
COMPARTMENT
Making ice cubes

temperature compartment.
• Do not use sharp or pointed instruments to detach the tray if
it is stuck to the low temperature compartment bottom.
• Bend the ice tray slightly to remove the cubes.

HOW TO DEFROST AND CLEAN THE REFRIGERATOR

Before any cleaning or maintenance operation, unplug the
appliance from the mains or disconnect the electrical power
supply.
Defrosting of the refrigerator compartment is completely
automatic.
Droplets of water on the rear wall of the refrigerator
compartment indicate that the periodic automatic defrost cycle
is in progress.
The defrost water is automatically routed to a drain outlet and
into a container from which it evaporates.
Clean the defrost water drain outlet regularly using the tool
supplied with the appliance in order to ensure defrost water is
removed correctly.
Defrosting the low temperature compartment
Defrost the low temperature compartment once or twice a
year or when the ice formation is excessive.
It is perfectly normal for ice to form. The amount of ice
which forms and the rate at which it accumulates will
depends on room temperature and humidity, and on the
frequency with which the door is opened. Ice formation is
concentrated at the top of the compartment and does not
affect the efficiency of the appliance.
If possible, carry out defrosting when the compartment is
nearly empty.
• Remove the food from the low temperature compartment,
wrap in a newspaper and group together in a cool place or in
a portable cooler.
• Leave the door open to allow the frost to melt.
• Clean the interior with a sponge soaked in warm water and/or
neutral detergent. Do not use abrasive substances.
• Rinse the interior and dry thoroughly.
• Put the food back into the compartment.
• Close the door.
• Plug in the appliance once again.
• Switch the appliance on.
