4.1 Instructions

4.2 Cleaning the appliance

A special antibacterial protection on the 
appliance's interior walls prevents bacterial 
growth and keeps them clean. They must 
nevertheless be cleaned regularly in order 
to keep them in good condition.

Cleaning the outside of the appliance

•  The appliance may be cleaned with 

water or alcohol-based liquid detergents 
(e.g. window cleaning products).

•  Avoid aggressive detergents and rough 

sponges in order not to damage the 
surfaces.

•  Use a soft brush to remove dust and 

fume deposits from the condenser on the 
rear of the appliance.

•  Clean the tank above the compressor.

Cleaning the inside of the appliance

•  Clean the interior with diluted liquid 

detergent or with warm water with a little 
vinegar added.

•  The door balconies and containers can 

be removed: tap them upwards with your 
fist, first on one side and then on the other 
in the insertion zone.

•  Remove any ice thicker than 3-5 mm. Do 

not use sharp objects or spray products.

Improper use
Risk of damage to surfaces

•  Do not use steam jets for cleaning the 

appliance.

•  Do not use cleaning products containing 

chlorine, ammonia or bleach on steel 
parts or parts with metallic finishes on the 
surface (e.g. anodizing, nickel- or 
chromium-plating).

•  Do not use abrasive or corrosive 

detergents on glass parts (e.g. powder 
products, stain removers and metallic 
sponges).

•  Do not use rough or abrasive materials 

or sharp metal scrapers.

Power voltage
Danger of electrocution

•  Turn off the appliance and unplug it from 

the mains before cleaning.

•  Do not pull the cable to remove the 

plug.
