ARRANGING FOOD IN YOUR FRIDGE-FREEZER
• To reduce humidity
inside your fridgefreezer, NEVER place
liquids in unsealed
containers in the
refrigerator. Always dry
off wet items before
placing them in the
appliance.
•
• Make sure that you arrange food in such a way that
the door can close completely. Be especially wary of
protruding items (such as bottles) between shelves
and the inside of the door.
• NEVER place warm food inside your refrigerator or
freezer. Warm food must be allowed to cool at room
temperature first. It should then be arranged to
ensure adequate air circulation in the refrigerator
compartment. If freezing, see page 17 for tips.
• Crispy / delicate foods should be stored in the coldest
parts of the fridge.
• DO NOT open the refrigerator door too often or leave
it open for long spells of time.
9
• ARRANGE meat and cleaned fish (wrapped in packages
or sheets of plastic) which you will then use within 1-2
days.
• You can put fruits and vegetables into the crisper
without leaving them in their packaging.
• Unpleasant

• If you are planning on being away from your
refrigerator for a few days (such as going on holiday),
make sure that you remove quickly perishable articles
of food from your fridge before you go and dispose of
them.
• Always be mindful of the storage life of foods you are
going to be freezing for a long time. Although the
temperature of the freezer can dip to a very low level
this does not mean that food can be stored
indefinitely. Pay particular attention to the
information printed on the packaging of the foods you
are going to be placing in your freezer.
• You should seal your
food in suitable storage
bags before placing them
in the refrigerator or
freezer. Label freezer
•
bags appropriately.
13
Always store food with
a view to how often it
will be used. Food
consumed daily should
be placed in the most
convenient area so that
you don’t end up
leaving the door open
for long periods while
you search for food.
• Do NOT store excess
quantities or weights of
food. Always try to
leave gaps between your
packages for better

storage results.
• Do not place food too closely to the interior walls –
items put too close to the walls may freeze to them!
• If you place vegetables with their stalks or roots
facing towards the cold source, you will be able to
store them for longer.
•
The leaves on
carrots, turnips, etc.
should be removed
before you store them.
• Always store eggs
vertically in the egg
holder provided in the
door.

Onions, garlic, ginger and
other root vegetables
should not be stored in the
refrigerator as these types
of food can be stored
appropriately at room
temperature.

IN CASE OF A BLACKOUT
(GENERAL POWER FAILURE)
In case of Power Failure, find out
how long the electricity will be off. If
the failure is not going to be for
any longer than 12 hours, leave
the food in the freezer and keep the
door closed.
If the POWER FAILURE is going to
last longer than 12 hours and some
food defrosts, consume the latter as
soon as possible.
LONG ABSENCES

Remember to store food properly, observing advice on the packaging.
STORING FOOD IN YOUR FREEZER
suitable for freezing BEFORE they
NOTE:
When buying commercially
are put into the freezer.
Fresh foods – Foods to be
stored in the freezer should be in
good edible condition and
17
available frozen food, make sure that
the packaging is neither sodden nor
covered with frost (snow) before you
place it in the freezer at home.
¾
Use correct
packaging and wrap items
correctly.
¾
The packaging
should be airtight and
shouldn’t leak since this
could cause substantial
vitamin loss and
dehydration from your food.
¾
Foil and bags
should be applied carefully
to articles of food so that
they can be stored
systematically &
comfortably within the
freezer.
¾
Mark your packages
with data such as: the type
and amount of food inside
the package, and the date
on which it was prepared
and loaded into the freezer.
Defrosting
Frozen Food –
Partially thawed
or defrosted
food should be
used as soon
as possible.
Defrosted food
cannot be put
back in the
freezer unless
it has been
cooked first.
¾
¾ It is very important that the
food is frozen as quickly as
possible. We therefore
recommend that the size of
the package not be too large.
It should also be sufficiently
cooled (at least to room
temperature) before being
inserted in the freezer
compartment.
¾ The amount of fresh foods
that can be loaded into the
freezer within 24 hours is
indicated on the rating plate
(freezing capacity).
¾ Food cut into small portions
will freeze faster & be easier
to defrost and cook. The
recommended weight for
each portion is 2.5kg.
¾ The outside of any food
packaging should be dry
before being placed in the
freezer. All packages should
be odour-free, airtight &
non-toxic.

THE APPLIANCE FROM ITS POSITION IN THE UNIT IN ORDER TO
ACCESS THE CONDENSER.
DO SO WITH CAUTION!
Upon hearing this alarm, you should:
• Check the air circulation through
the bottom rail openings. Your
fridge-freezer needs good
ventilation at the plinth level at
the bottom.
• If necessary, clean or
vacuum the dust from the
condenser. See the
instructions BELOW.
The condenser consists of the coil structure at the back of
the refrigerator. To clean it:
1.
2.
3.
Disconnect from the power supply.
Move the refrigerator out of its cabinet housing. TAKE
EXTREME CARE whilst performing this. The back of
the appliance consists of the condenser coils. These
must be either dusted lightly or vacuumed. Be careful
not to damage them as they are vital to the
appliance’s good functioning.
After cleaning, move the refrigerator back into place.

TIPS FOR ENERGY SAVINGS
21
9 Try not to open the door too often, especially when
the weather is wet and hot. Once you open the
door, be sure to close it as soon as possible.
9 ALWAYS MAKE SURE THAT YOUR APPLIANCE HAS
THE VENTILATION IT NEEDS. BE ESPECIALLY
MINDFUL OF THE NEEDED AIRFLOW BETWEEN ITS
PLINTH AND THE FLOOR (SEE INSTALLATION
SECTION).
9 Use higher thermostat settings only if essential
and not for constant, long-term use.
9 Before loading the appliance with packages of
fresh foods, ensure they are cooled to an ambient
temperature (except in the case of soup).
9 If the door seal (gasket) is damaged, the energy
consumption will be much higher. To keep the
sealing in good condition, be sure not to spill oils
or fats on it. A damaged seal will need to be
replaced. A crushed one (usually if the door has
been reversed) can be fluffed with a hair dryer.
9 The condenser at the bottom of the appliance must
always be clean and free of dust.

NOTE FOR AFTER REVERSING THE DOOR
¾ After you have reversed the door, check that the magnetic gasket seals
correctly. It must NOT be creased or crushed so that there is a gap
between it and the inside of the door. It must also seal all around the
door.
¾ In case the seal does not fit perfectly, pull it out and rotate it by 180
degrees.
¾ Should the seal not adhere to the casings of the appliance correctly, it
will have to be heated from a suitable distance using a hair dryer and
lightly stretched in order to attain the required dimensions.
¾ During Transit the door seal may become compressed. Therefore it is
advisable to reform and expand the seal to ensure optimum efficiency of
the appliance. This can be done by running a warm cloth or using a
hairdryer to warm the material and then massaging the seal by hand to
re-enlarge and expand it so that the door is airtight.
