9
Using your Baumatic fridge
Before switching on
o Make sure that it has been installed by a suitably qualified
person, as per the information contained in Baumatic’s
installation instructions.
o After delivery, wait for eight hours before connecting the
appliance to your mains supply. This will allow any refrigerant
gasses that may have been disturbed during the transportation
process to settle.
o The outside of the appliance and the removable accessories
contained within it, should be cleaned with a solution of liquid
detergent and water.
o The interior of the appliance should be cleaned
with a solution of sodium bicarbonate dissolved in
lukewarm water. The interior and accessories
should be thoroughly dried, after the cleaning
process has been completed.
o There can be an odour when you first switch on
the appliance. It will lessen as the appliance starts to cool.
During first use
o With dry hands, connect your appliance to your mains supply.
Set the thermostat control knob to position <6> for a 24 - 48
hour period, before positioning it to the normal setting of <3>.
o When you first switch on the appliance, the compressor will run
more frequently for approximately 24 - 48 hours.
o During this period of time, you should try not to open the door
frequently or place a large amount of food within the appliance.
o If the unit is switched off or unplugged, you must allow at least 5
minutes before restarting the appliance on the thermostat or
reconnecting it to your mains supply.
10
Switching on the appliance and setting the thermostat
o You switch on your appliance by connecting it to your mains
supply and setting the thermostat. The thermostat dial is located
on the upper right hand side of the inside of the cabinet, next to
the interior light.
o The thermostat automatically regulates the temperature inside
the fridge. The temperature is affected by the number that the
thermostat dial is set to.
o Position <OFF> means that the appliance will not cool.
o Position <1> will give you a higher temperature inside the
fridge.
o Position <6> will give you a lower temperature inside the fridge.
o Ideally the thermostat dial should be set to position <3>
o The fridge can maintain a temperature of between 4 – 6 degrees
centigrade.
o IMPORTANT: The ambient temperature of the room,
the temperature of food and the amount of food that
has been placed in the fridge and how often the door is
opened, will all affect the temperature being maintained
by the appliance.
o On the maximum setting (position <6>), your fridge will
work harder to maintain a lower temperature and will increase
the energy usage. There is no need to run your appliance on
setting <6> for prolonged periods.
o IMPORTANT: Do not run the thermostat above position <5> for
prolonged periods, otherwise the defrost drainage hole will
freeze.
11
Arranging and storing food in the fridge section
o Warm food or evaporating liquids should not be stored in your
refrigerator, as this will increase the humidity inside of the
appliance.
o All foods should be wrapped or covered, this is particularly
important if the food has a strong flavour. You should use
polythene bags or sheets, aluminium foil, wax paper. Liquids
should be stored in covered containers or bottles.
o To maximise the space inside of the fridge section, any excessive
packaging on the food should be removed.
o Quickly perishable food should be stored at the back of the
refrigerator, which is the coldest part of the appliance.
o No food items should be allowed to come into contact with the
back wall of the refrigerator.
o Make sure that you arrange food in such a way that the door can
close completely. Particular attention should be given to bottles
that may protrude when placed on shelves inside the main
section of the refrigerator.
o Some organic solutions, such as the oils in lemon/orange peel
and acid in butter, can cause damage to the plastic parts
contained inside of the refrigerator.
o Do not open the refrigerator door too often or leave the door
open for long periods of time, as this will increase the
temperature inside of the appliance and will increase the energy
usage.
o Meat should be wrapped in polythene bags and then placed on
the glass shelf above the salad crisper.
(Meat should only be stored in this manner for one or two
days at the most).
o Cold dishes/cooked food should be covered and can be placed
on any shelf.
o Fruit and vegetables should be cleaned thoroughly and placed
in the salad crisper.
o Cheese and butter should be placed in airtight containers, or
they can be wrapped in aluminium foil or polythene bags. As
much air as possible should be removed from the bags.
12
o Milk bottles should have a cap on them and be stored on the
bottle shelf that sits in the door.
o Garlic, potatoes, onions and bananas should only be
stored in a refrigerator IF they are kept in airtight
containers.
Normal operating noises
Ice cracking noise
o Can be heard during the automatic defrosting process.
Short cracking noise
o Can be heard when the thermostat turns the compressor on and
off.
Compressor noise
o There will be an operating noise when the compressor is running.
o After installation, the compressor may be noisier for a short
period of time.
Bubbling and burbling sound
o This noise is emitted as the coolant flows through the pipework
within the fridge.
Water flowing sound
o This is caused by water flowing into the evaporating tray during
the defrosting process and can be heard whilst the fridge is
defrosting.
13
Cleaning and maintenance
WARNING: PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR
APPLIANCE IS DISCONNECTED FROM
YOUR
MAINS
SUPPLY
BEFORE
ATTEMPTING TO CLEAN IT.
o Do not clean the appliance by pouring water onto
it or spraying water over it.
o The refrigerator compartment should be cleaned
periodically, using a solution of bicarbonate of soda
and lukewarm water.
o Clean the accessories separately with soap and water.
Do not clean them in a dishwasher.
o Do not use abrasive products, detergents or soaps.
o After washing the appliance, wipe over the area
that you have cleaned with a damp cloth and then
dry it thoroughly.
o When cleaning is complete, dry your hands and then reconnect
the plug to your mains supply.
14
The defrost drain hole
o Defrosting occurs automatically in the refrigerator section during
operation. The defrost water is collected by the evaporating tray
and evaporates automatically.
o The drain hole should be cleaned periodically with the drain hole
cleaner. This will prevent water from collecting in the bottom of
the refrigerator, instead of flowing down the defrost drainage
channel and drain hole.
o IMPORTANT: Please note that the drain hole cleaner should not
be left in position permanently. Otherwise this may prevent the
defrost water from entering the drain hole.
o You can also pour a small amount of water down the drain hole
to clean the defrost drainage channel.
o You should be careful to make sure that food packages do not
touch the rear wall of the appliance, as this can interrupt the
automatic defrosting process and deflect water into the base of
the refrigerator section.
o Use a solution of bicarbonate of soda and lukewarm water to
clean the evaporating tray.
o IMPORTANT: It is normal to get some ice droplets forming on
the back wall of the appliance. The formation of ice droplets does
not indicate an appliance fault.
15
Replacing the light bulb
WARNING: PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR
APPLIANCE IS DISCONNECTED FROM
YOUR
MAINS
SUPPLY
BEFORE
ATTEMPTING TO REPLACE THE LIGHT
BULB.
o There is an interior light next to the thermostat dial.
o Press the hooks on the sides of the light cover and slide the
cover off.
o Change the present light bulb with a new one. The replacement
bulb should not have a greater rating than 15 W.
o Replace the light cover and after waiting five minutes, reconnect
your plug to your mains supply.
Prolonged OFF periods
If the fridge is not in use for a long period of time, you should:
o Disconnect the fridge from the electricity supply.
o Clean and dry the inside as instructed on page 14.
o Leave the door of the appliance open to prevent any unpleasant
smells from building up while the fridge is not in use.
16
Installation
IMPORTANT: Before installation and usage read
all the instructions and make sure that the
voltage (V) and the frequency (Hz) indicated on
the rating plate are exactly the same as the
voltage and frequency in your home. The rating
plate can be found on the front left edge of the
inside of the refrigerator.
The manufacturer declines all responsibility in the event of the installer
failing to observe all the accident prevention regulations in force,
which are necessary for normal use and the regular operation of the
electric system.
Electrical connection
YOUR FRIDGE IS INTENDED
PERMANENT INSTALLATION.
FOR
FITTED
AND
We recommend that the appliance is connected by a
qualified electrician, who is a member of the N.I.C.E.I.C.
and who will comply with the I.E.E. and local regulations.
o Your refrigerator comes supplied with a 13 amp plug fitted. If in
future you need to change the fuse in this plug, then a 13 amp
ASTA approved (BS 1362) fuse must be used.
o The wiring in the mains lead is coloured as follows:
Brown
Live
Blue
Neutral
Green and yellow
Earth
o As the colours of the wires in the appliance’s mains lead may not
correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals
in your spur box, please proceed as follows:
The brown wire must be connected to the terminal marked “L”
(live), or coloured red.
The blue wire must be connected to the terminal marked “N”
(neutral), or coloured black.
The green and yellow wire must be connected to the terminal
marked “E” (earth), or by the earth symbol, or coloured green
and yellow.
17
o When the connection is completed, no stray strands or cut wire
should be present. The cord clamp must be secured over the
outer sheath.
Positioning
o It is advisable that your appliance is only installed in a location
where the ambient temperature of the room, corresponds with
the climate classification that is stated on the rating plate of your
appliance. Your appliance may not function correctly if the
ambient temperature falls outside of the following ranges.
Climate classification Appropriate ambient temperature
SN
+10°C to +32°C
N
+16°C to +32°C
ST
+18°C to +38°C
T
+18°C to +43°C
o Positioning the appliance requires two people in order to avoid
injuries or damage to the appliance.
o Your appliance should not be located in direct sunlight or
exposed to continuous heat or extremes of temperature (e.g.
next to a radiator or boiler). If this is not feasible, then you
should install an insulation plate between the appliance and the
adjacent heat source.
o You should check whether there is an electrical socket available,
which will be accessible after your appliance is installed.
o Place the appliance flatly and firmly on a solid base. The
appliance is fitted with adjustable feet on the front side, which
can be used to level the appliance.
o Anything positioned above the appliance must allow sufficient
cooling of the condenser with an approximate gap of 3 cm. You
must leave a 2 cm gap to the rear of the appliance and 2 cm
either side of the appliance.
o If you are placing another cooling appliance next door to this
product, then there must be a gap of at least 2 cm between the
appliances. This will help to prevent condensation from forming.
o Be sure to leave enough space for the opening of the door, to
avoid damage to the appliance or personal injury.
18
Levelling the appliance
o If the fridge is not levelled during installation, the doors may not
close or seal properly causing cooling, frost or moisture
problems.
o To level your refrigerator you may either turn the levelling foot
clockwise to raise that side or turn it anti-clockwise to lower that
side.
IMPORTANT: It is advisable that two people carry out this
procedure. While one person adjusts the foot, the other should
push against the top of the fridge to take some weight off the
levelling foot. This makes it easier to adjust the levelling foot.
Reversing the door
IMPORTANT: BEFORE COMMENCING THE DOOR REVERSAL
PROCESS THE APPLIANCE MUST BE DISCONNECTED FROM
YOUR MAINS SUPPLY.
o We suggest that two people complete the door reversal process.
o We recommend that the door reversal process is done before the
appliance is placed in its final position.
o If food is already stored inside of it, then this must all be
removed before beginning the door reversal process.
TOOLS REQUIRED
o Phillips style screwdriver
o Flat bladed screwdriver
1. Switch off the appliance at the socket and unplug it.
19
2. Unscrew the two screws on the top cover to remove it.
3. Unscrew the three screws on the top hinge.
4. Move the top hinge to the opposite side to
its original position. Move the top hinge pin,
shaft sheath and block piece to the opposite
side to their original positions also.
5. Carefully remove the appliance door, placing it
gently on a cushioned surface, so that it doesn’t get
damaged.
6. Carefully tilt the appliance to a 60°
angle. Unscrew the three screws on the
bottom hinge and move them to the
opposite
side
from
their
original
positions.
7. Move the adjustable foot to the opposite
side from its original positions.
20
8. Reattach the door to the bottom hinge, making sure that it is
correctly aligned, before re-fixing the top hinge and reinstalling the top
cover.
IMPORTANT: Check that the door opens and shuts correctly,
without fouling, after you have completed the door reversal
process.
After the door has been reversed, you should check
the door seal of the appliance. The seal should not
be creased or crushed; otherwise there will be a gap
between it and the inside of the door.
o The seal must adhere properly all the way around the door.
o If the seal is not adhering to the cabinet properly, then you
should either:1. Use a warm damp cloth and manipulate the seal until it does
adhere to the cabinet properly, all the way around the door.
OR
2. Use a hair dryer on its lowest heat setting and lightly heat the
areas of the door seal that are not adhering correctly. The
heat will make the seal more pliable and this will allow you to
manipulate the seal into the correct position.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT HEAT THE DOOR SEAL ON ANYTHING BUT
THE LOWEST HEAT SETTING, OR HEAT THE SEAL FOR A LONG
PERIOD OF TIME. OTHERWISE DAMAGE MAY BE CAUSED TO
THE DOOR SEAL, WHICH WOULD NOT BE RECTIFIED UNDER
THE GUARANTEE FREE OF CHARGE.
IMPORTANT: WHEN YOU HAVE REVERSED THE DOOR OF THE
APPLIANCE.
AS
YOU
HAVE
TILTED
THE
APPLIANCE
BACKWARDS, YOU MUST WAIT FOR 8 HOURS BEFORE
SWITCHING THE APPLIANCE BACK ON.
