OPERATION
Before use
Fresh food refrigeration
Remove all securing tapes. Wash inside the
appliance with lukewarm water and bicarbonate of
soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water). Do not use soap or
detergent as the smell may linger. Dry thoroughly.
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
flavour.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective material,
such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which may
obstruct the air circulation through them.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb, chicken or poultry): wrap
in polythene bags and place on the shelf on top of the
salad bin.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for one
or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad bin.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags, to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with
runners so that shelves can be positioned as desired.
Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the refrigerator and the
-star compartment is regulated by a thermostat
with 6 temperature positions and one «OFF» (O)
position.
Position 1 = minimum coldness
Position 6 = maximum coldness
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
An intermediate position is usually the most suitable,
although the temperature will be affected by:
Room temperature
l How often the door is opened
l How much food is stored
l Position of the appliance
In determining the correct temperature control setting
all these factors have to be considered and some
experimentation may be necessary.
When altering the temperature setting, allow 24 hours
for the temperature to stablise before making further
changes.
l
Important
The temperature inside the refrigerator and
-star compartment can be regulated by
adjusting the conveyor located under the
-star compartment.
To obtain a lower temperature in the
-star
compartment when frozen food is stored inside
and when the ambient temperature is 25°C or
lower slightly raise the conveyor (A) and push it
all the way in. When frozen food is not stored in
the
-star compartment and when the
ambient temperature is higher than 25°C return
the conveyor to its initial position. This reduces
the temperature in the refrigerator
compartment.

The door shelves
To permit storage of food packages of various sizes
the central door shelf can be adjusted in height.
To do this proceed as figure.
PR187
For more thorough cleaning, the top door shelf and
the bottle shelf can be removed by pulling them in the
director of the arrows, then refitting them in position.
PR190
The
-star compartment
Thawing
This compartment is suitable for the storage of
commercially frozen food and for ice cube making.
Food can be thawed in a number of ways, depending
on the type of food and the size of the packs.
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigeration compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the
oven instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping in the oven.
Frozen food storage
Storing ready-frozen foods is quite straight forward.
The packs can be placed beside each other or on top
of each other.
You are strongly advised to place ready-frozen food in
the compartment as quickly as possible after
purchase and we therefore recommend that you buy
them last. Also ensure that the external packaging is
intact.
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of refrozen
water droplets on the pack could indicate that the
product has not been kept at a suitable temperature
and that it may have lost its original quality.
Partially thawed food must not be refrozen, it must be
consumed within 24 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated.
Do not open the
-star compartment door too
often and do not leave open longer than necessary.
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with a plastic ice cube tray.
Fill the tray 3/4 full to allow the ice to expand and
place it in the
-star compartment. To turn out the
ice cubes simply give the tray a slight twist to release
the cubes. Never try to free an ice tray that is
frozen to the
-star compartment using a
sharp or pointed object.
Important
In the event of a power cut do not open the
door. The food in the
-star compartment
will not be affected if the power cut is short and
if the compartment is full. Should the food
begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and
must not be re-frozen.
Important
Do not consume ice-lollies which have just
come out of the
-star compartment. Their
extremely low temperature can cause frost
burns. Do not remove items from the
-star
compartment if your hands are damp/wet, as
this could cause skin abrasions or "frost/freezer
burns".

Normal Operating Sounds
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when
the refrigerant is pumped through the coils or tubing at
the rear, to the cooling evaporator.
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being
pumped round, and you will hear a whirring sound or
pulsating noise from the compressor.
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you will
hear a faint ‘click’ when the thermostat cuts in and out.
HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES
Because of consumer demand, preservatives have been removed from many pre-prepared foods. This
together with the changes in shopping habits to a once-a-week shop, mean that safe handling and
storage of food is even more important than ever.
The following tips should help you to ensure that
the food in your home is in as perfect condition
as possible.
■ Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your fridge as short as possible. Tests
showed that the temperature of 1 litre of orange
juice rose to 22°C in an hour between the
supermarket and home. It then took 11 hours to
get down to 7°C in the refrigerator.
■ Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as
possible.
■ Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
■ Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do
NOT place in the refrigerator until cool. (Leave
food in a cool place in order that it can then be
placed in the refrigerator as soon as possible).
■ Do NOT mix raw and cooked meat, they must be
in separate containers. Take care not to let the
meat juices drip onto other food. If the meat does
drip, remove everything and clean thoroughly.
■ Do not store food uncovered.
■

Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean (Refer to “Maintenance and cleaning”).
Never allow spillages to dry and harden.
Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the
refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped
eggs.
Regularly check the refrigerator door seal to
ensure that it is clean and free from debris.
Always wash your hands with soapy water and dry
them with a clean towel before handling food.
Keep work surfaces clean and avoid cross
contamination by not using the same work surface
or knife, without washing them thoroughly in
between.
DEFROSTING
While in operation the
-star compartment
becomes progressively covered with frost.
This frost, which acts as an insulator and thus
prevents the cold from reaching the food should be
removed whenever the thickness of the frost exceeds
1/4".
To carry out complete defrosting proceed as follows:
1. Push the conveyor completely in.
2. Place a tray on the upper shelf of the refrigerator
under the drain hole of the conveyor.
3. Remove any food from inside the
-star
compartment, wrap it in several sheets of
newspaper and store in a cool dry place.
4. Turn the thermostat dial to the «OFF» (O) position.
To accelerate defrosting, place a bowl of hot water
inside the compartment (with a piece of cardboard
underneath the bowl as protection).
5. When defrosting is completed, dry thoroughly and
remove the water collected in the tray.
Turn the thermostat knob on a medium position to
restart the appliance.
After letting the appliance run for at least half an hour,
replace the previously removed food into the
star compartment.
When defrosting it is not necessary to remove the
foods from the inner door and the refrigerator
compartment.
Important
A temperature rise of the frozen food packs
during defrosting may shorten their storage life.
Never use sharp metal tools to scrape off frost
from the evaporator as you could damage it
beyond repair.
