Before going away for extended periods of time, we recommend removing all perishable foods from the refrigerator, before setting this feature. 6 storing food electrolux four-door refrigerator electrolux four-door refrigerator troubleshooting 7 Storing food Care and cleaning Troubleshooting Refrigeration reduces the rate of food spoilage. To maximise the shelf life of perishable food products, ensure that the food is of the freshest possible quality. The following is a general guide to help promote longer food storage. Some household cleaning chemicals can cause cracks, splits or discolouration on the inside surface of the refrigerator and door liner. Only use diluted dishwashing liquid and ensure that all plastic is wiped with fresh water after cleaning. Alkaline detergents may affect the aluminium parts of the door handle, causing it to tarnish. If you think something may be wrong with your refrigerator, you can carry out some easy checks before calling for service. You may locate the problem, sparing yourself from inconvenience and saving time and money. Fruit and vegetables To minimise moisture loss, fruit and vegetables should be loosely enclosed in a plastic material (e.g. wrap, bags) and placed in the Vegetable crisper or the Chilled compartment. Those fruits and vegetables with thick skins do not require wrapping. Dairy products and eggs •Most dairy products have a use by date on the outer packaging which indicates the recommended temperature and expected life of the product. • Eggs should be stored in the egg tray. Meat, fish and poultry •Place on a plate or dish and cover with paper or plastic wrap. •For larger cuts of meat, fish or poultry, place to the rear of the shelves. •Ensure all cooked food is wrapped securely or placed in an airtight container. NOTES: • Evenly place the food on the shelves to allow the cooling air to circulate efficiently. • Hot foods should be cooled before storing. Storing hot foods increases the temperature in the unit and increases the risk of food spoilage. • Do not block the outlet and inlet of the cool air circulating circuit with foods or containers; otherwise the foods will not be evenly cooled throughout the refrigerator. • Do not place food directly in front of cold air outlet. This may lead to the food freezing. • Are controls set too cold? See “Controlling temperature”. The glass shelves weigh approximately 3kg each. Hold firmly when removing from the cabinet or when carrying. problem solution • Have large amounts of warm food just recently been stored? Summer, festive seasons and holidays usually mean a lot more work for your refrigerator. When your appliance is not operating •C heck that the power cord is plugged into the power outlet properly and that the outlet is switched ‘ON’. • If the day is hot or the room is very warm, the refrigerator will need to run more than normal. • Try running another appliance from the power outlet. If no power is coming from the outlet you may have blown a fuse or tripped a circuit of your household power supply. • The refrigerator will run more that normal just after you install it or when it has been turned off for a long time. 1Remove the shelves and bins from the cabinet and door. Wash them in warm soapy water; rinse in clean water and dry. 2Clean the inside with a cloth soaked in warm soapy water. Then use cold water to wipe off the soapy water. 3 Wipe the exterior with a soft cloth each time it is soiled. 4Clean the magnetic door seal with a toothbrush and warm soapy water. 5 Wipe the control panel with a dry cloth. Notes: • Do not use hot water, household cleaning powders, creams or spray-on cleaning products or any other cleaning products such as mineral turpentine, methylated spirits, thinners, petrol etc. These may damage your refrigerator and may void any warranty. • If undiluted detergent is used or soapy water is not wiped off thoroughly, cracking of plastic parts can result. • Wipe any spills from the refrigerator immediately, acid or alkaline in the food can cause cracking and staining of plastic parts. • The glass shelves weigh approximately 3kg each. Hold firmly when removing from cabinet or carrying. • Wipe any spills from the control panel immediately, liquid ingress can damage the electronics. Your new refrigerator provides you with large capacities in both the refrigerator section and the separate freezer. It is normal for the motor to operate frequently. However, to keep operation to a minimum, check the following: • Are doors kept open too long or too often? caution •T ry adjusting the temperature control to a slightly “colder” position. If the temperature in the refrigerator is too warm • It is normal for the freezer fan NOT to operate during the automatic defrost cycle, or for a short time after the refrigerator is switched on. When there is refrigerator noise Modern refrigerators/freezers with increased storage capacity use high speed compressors. These can provide a seemingly high level of sound which is quite normal. Normal operational sounds include: • Refer to “Controlling temperature”. • You may have kept the door open too long or too frequently. • Food containers or packaging may be holding a door open. • Refer to “Controlling temperature”. • Occasional gurgling, similar to water boiling. •A ir flow noise (air circulates because of a small fan). If heavy frosting occurs in the freezer Make sure you fully close the freezer and fridge doors. If the doors are left partly open a heavy frost will coat the inside of the freezer. If a frost develops, remove it. Take care to properly close the doors and the frost will not reoccur. If water droplets form on the aluminium panel This is normal as the panel is cooled from the rear, therefore indirectly cooling the refrigerator compartment. It is normal for water droplets to form on this panel under humid weather conditions. •A popping noise heard during automatic defrost. • A clicking noise heard just before the compressor starts (this is merely the automatic switching action of the temperature control, turning the compressor on or off). Other strange sounds may mean that you need to check and take action. For example, noises may mean that: • The cabinet is not level. • The floor is uneven or weak. • Bottles are badly placed and rattling. • There are vibrations from an object on top of or behind or beside the refrigerator. Remember it is quite normal for noise to seem louder just after the refrigerator starts operating. If there are odours inside the refrigerator • Check that the refrigerator has enough clearance at the sides, back and top. Refer to the installation Instructions at the front of this booklet. If the temperature in the refrigerator is too cold •T he back of the refrigerator cabinet is touching the wall. For best freezing • Food should be fresh. •Freeze small quantities of food at a time to freeze them quickly. •Food should be properly stored in containers or freezer bags. Air should be removed if possible and seal tightly. •Evenly place the food in the freezer. •Label bags or containers to keep an inventory of frozen food. When the motor seems to run more than expected • The interior may need cleaning. • Some foods produce odours. •S ome containers and wrapping can cause odours. •A sk yourself if the odour started about the same time you started storing something unusual. • Increase the temperature to avoid high energy consumption. If you still require service If you have a problem, and the problem persists after you have made the checks mentioned above, contact your nearest Electrolux approved Service Centre or the dealer you bought the refrigerator from. Be ready to quote the model number, which is stated on the label inside the refrigerator compartment. If a refrigerator lamp blows The lamp should only be replaced by a service centre approved by Electrolux. Switching off your refrigerator If the refrigerator needs to be switched off for an extended period, the following steps should be taken to reduce the symptoms of mould: 1 Remove all food. 2 Remove the power plug from the power point. 3 Clean and dry the interior thoroughly. 4Ensure that all the doors are wedged open slightly for air circulation. grub screw 8 removing door handles electrolux four-door refrigerator pedestal allen key Removing door handles grub screw If you need to remove the handles allen key from your door, please follow the instructions below. pedestal 1Use a 2.5mm allen key to remove the grub screw from the underside of the handle pedestals. grub screw allen key pedestal grub screw allen key 2When the grub screws have been removed from both of the pedestals, the handle can be pulled away from pedestal the pedestals. pedestal pedestal 3The pedestals can be removed from the door (if necessary).
