The Thoughtful Design Innovator.
Congratulations
Do you remember the last time you opened a gift that made you say
“Oh! How did you know? That’s exactly what I wanted!” That’s the kind of
feeling that the designers at Electrolux seek to evoke in everyone who chooses
or uses one of our products. We devote time, knowledge, and a great deal of
thought to anticipating and creating the kind of appliances that our customers
really need and want.
Congratulations and thank you for choosing our four-door
refrigerator. Our appliances are designed to be easy to use
and complimentary to your lifestyle. Before using your new
Electrolux appliance we recommend that you read the user
manual to understand the product and its benefits.
To avoid the risks that are always present when you use
an electric appliance, it is important that the refrigerator is
installed correctly and that you read the safety instructions
carefully to avoid misuse and hazards.
We recommend that you keep this instruction booklet for
future reference and pass it on to any future owners.
After unpacking the refrigerator please check it is not
damaged. If in doubt, do not use the product but contact
your local Electrolux Service Centre.
This kind of thoughtful care means innovating with insight. Not design for
design’s sake, but design for the user’s sake. For us, thoughtful design means
making appliances easier to use and tasks more enjoyable to perform, freeing
our customers to experience the ultimate 21st century luxury: ease of mind.
Our aim is to make this ease of mind more available to more people in more
parts of their everyday lives, all over the world. The “Thinking of you” promise from Electrolux goes beyond meeting the needs
of today’s consumers. It also means we’re committed to making appliances
safe for the environment—now and for future generations.
Electrolux. Thinking of you.

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

model number, which is stated on the label inside the
refrigerator compartment.
