Resolution

High temperature alarm:

When there is a temperature increase in the compartment (for example due to an earlier power failure), the alarm and temperature indicators flash and the sound is on.

To deactivate the alarm:

1. Press any button. The sound switches off.

2. If your appliance is equipped with a display, the temperature indicator shows the highest temperature reached for a few seconds, then the display shows the set temperature again.

The alarm indicator continues to flash until the normal conditions are restored. If you do not press any button, the sound switches off automatically after around one hour to avoid disturbing.

Door open alarm:

If the fridge door is left open for approximately 5 minutes, the sound is on and the alarm indicator flashes. The alarm stops after closing the door. During the alarm, the sound can be muted by pressing any button.

If you do not press any button, the sound switches off automatically after around one hour to avoid disturbing.
