• Never put liquids in the refrigerator uncovered.
• Never put hot foods in the refrigerator. Warm food should be
allowed to cool to room temperature before being put into the
• Nothing should rest against the rear wall of the refrigerator, as this
will cause frost and possible condensation problems which will be
difficult to remove.
• Make sure food is clean and any extra water is wiped away before
putting into the fridge.
• Wrap or cover food before putting into the fridge. This will help
prevent the loss of moisture, keep food fresh and avoid unpleasant
• Sort foods prior to storing. Any foods to be used soon should be
stored at the front of the shelf to prevent deterioration caused by
the door being open for prolonged periods.
• Do not overfill the fridge. There should be sufficient space between
the foods to allow the cool air to circulate.
• Thawing frozen foods in the fridge compartment will help to keep
the temperature low and save energy.
• Only open the door for as long as is necessary. Leaving the
door open for long periods will affect the temperature inside the
appliance and waste energy.
• Ensure all compartments are fully closed after use.
Ice box
The ice-box door should be kept closed to prevent the contents
of the ice-box defrosting, heavy build up of frost in the ice-box and
excessive unnecessary use of energy.
Freezing fresh food
• Set the thermostat knob to 5-7.
• Wrap and seal the food in aluminium foil, cling film, watertight plastic
bags, polythene containers with lids or special freezer containers.
• Arrange the food to be frozen centrally in the freezer compartment.
• Avoid contact between already frozen food and food that has yet to
be frozen (approx. 20 mm distance).
• After 24 hours turn the thermostat knob back to the normal position.
Please note: the amount of fresh food that can be frozen within 24
hours is shown on the rating plate as freezing capacity. Freezing
more than this amount will affect the quality of the frozen food.
Storing frozen food products
• When shopping, leave frozen food purchases until last and transport
products in a thermally insulated cool bag.
• Once at home, place the frozen foods immediately in the ice box.
Ensure that the packaging is not damaged.
• If the package is swollen or has damp patches, it may not have
been stored under optimal conditions and defrosting may have
already begun.
• If food has defrosted even partially, do not re-freeze it. Consume
within 24 hours.
• Avoid subjecting foods to temperature variations. Observe the “best
before” date on the package.
• Always observe the storage information on the package.
Care and cleaning
Always disconnect the appliance from the power supply before any
cleaning or maintenance.
The fridge sections should be cleaned using a solution of bicarbonate
of soda and lukewarm water. Do not use abrasive products or
detergents. After washing, rinse and dry thoroughly.
Clean the shelves and balconies separately by hand with soap and
water. Do not put them in the dishwasher.
The water drain hole at the back of the fridge compartment and
the evaporating tray should be clened periodically to prevent the
defrosted water from collecting inside the fridge compartment. The
drain plug can be used to clean the drain hole.
Once cleaning is complete, then reconnect the power.
• Keep the door gasket clean. If damaged, the gasket should be
• If the appliance is not used for prolonged periods of time, unplug
and clean the appliance. The door should be left slightly open to
prevent the formation of mildew and smell.
Defrosting the fridge
The fridge is self-defrosting. Any water created will run out of the
fridge through the channel at the back of the fridge.
It is important to keep the channel clear at all times. The defrosted
water is collected in the evaporating tray at the back of the appliance.
Defrosting the ice-box
The ice box should be defrosted regularly to ensure the most efficient
running, at a minimum of once every six months.
• Do not use heaters or defrosting sprays in this appliance.
• Never use any metallic or sharp objects to remove the ice as this
could damage the lining.
• To speed up the process, put a bowl of warm water in the base of
the ice-box compartment.
• Once defrosting is complete, dry the inside of the ice-box with a
sponge or clean cloth.
• To bring the unit back to temperature more quickly set the
thermostat to 5 after defrosting.

of the cover, and then pulling the cover down.
• Unscrew the light bulb to remove it and replace with a new bulb
(15W max).
• Replace the light cover and reconnect the power after five minutes’
delay as explained on page 3.
