HOW TO OPERATE THE REFRIGERATOR/FREEZER
1. Temperature control (sliders) (Fig. 1)
When the appliance is used for the first time, set the refrigerator and freezer temperatures on the
intermediate position (small triangle); to change these values, move the sliders either left or right:
to the left for a less cold temperature, to the right for a colder temperature.
2. Water filter control (on some models) (Fig. 2)
When the water indicator light is green it means that the filter is good.
When the light turns into yellow it is time to order a new filter.
When the light is red the water filter must be changed.
To reset the filter indicator to green, push light switch 5 times in 10 seconds.
3. Temperature control (thermostat knobs) (Fig. 3)
The knobs for refrigerator and freezer temperature control are inside the refrigerator. When the
appliance is used for the first time:
• set the refrigerator temperature control knob on position 3. It is possible to set the refrigerator
temperature from position 1 (less cold) to position 5 (colder);
• set the freezer temperature control knob on position B. It is possible to set the freezer temperature
from position A (less cold) to position C (colder) from the very beginning or whenever temperature
needs to be changed.
The appliance needs time for the set temperatures to stabilize, so wait before putting food inside.
The mid-range temperature setting recommended in this example is the right one for normal household purposes.
How to turn the appliance off:
Move the freezer temperature control slider or the refrigerator temperature control knob, to the OFF / ON
position; this operation turns refrigeration off in both the freezer and the refrigerator compartments.
NOTE: remember that this operation does not disconnect the appliance from the power supply.
A built-in exterior moisture control continuously guards against moisture build-up on the outside edges of
the refrigerator cabinet.
Do not be alarmed, if these edges sometimes feel warm to the touch.
