the outer casing of this appliance is only cleaned with
warm water with a little washing-up liquid added.
After cleaning, reconnect the equipment to the mains

Defrosting of the refrigerator

Frost is automatically eliminated from the evaporator of
the refrigerator compartment every time the motor com-
pressor stops, during normal use. The defrost water
drains out through a trough into a special container at
the back of the appliance, over the motor compressor,
where it evaporates.
It is important to periodically clean the defrost water
drain hole in the middle of the refrigerator compartment
channel to prevent the water overflowing and dripping
onto the food inside. Use the special cleaner provided,
which you will find already inserted into the drain hole.

Defrosting the freezer

A certain amount of frost will always form on the freezer
shelves and around the top compartment.
Defrost the freezer when the frost layer reaches a thick-
ness of about 3-5 mm.

Important! About 12 hours prior to defrosting, set the
Temperature regulator toward higher settings , in order
to build up sufficient chill reserve for the interruption in

To remove the frost, follow the instructions below:
1. Switch off the appliance.
2. Remove any stored food, wrap it in several layers

of newspaper and put it in a cool place.

Caution! Do not touch frozen goods with wet
hands. Hands can freeze to the goods.

3. Leave the door

open and insert
the plastic scra-
per in the appro-
priate seating at
the bottom cen-
tre, placing a ba-
sin underneath
to collect the de-
frost water

In order to speed up the defrosting process, place
a pot of warm water in the freezer compartment.

In addition, remove pieces of ice that break away be-
fore defrosting is complete.
4. When defrosting is completed, dry the interior

thoroughly and keep the scraper for future use.

5. Switch on the appliance.
6. After two or three hours, reload the previously re-

moved food into the compartment.

Warning! Never use sharp metal tools to scrape
off frost from the evaporator as you could damage

Do not use a mechanical device or any artificial means
to speed up the thawing process other than those
recommended by the manufacturer.
A temperature rise of the frozen food packs, during
defrosting, may shorten their safe storage life.

Periods of non-operation

When the appliance is not in use for long periods, take
the following precautions:
disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
• remove all food
• defrost (if foreseen) and clean the appliance and all


• leave the door/doors ajar to prevent unpleasant


If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to check it
once in a while to prevent the food inside from spoiling
in case of a power failure.
