Adequate ventilation around your refrigerator.
The diagram below shows the recommended airspace to
allow for ventilation of your refrigerator.
If you don’t have a cupboard with a rear gap, the
recommended clearance area on top increases from 50mm
to 90mm (x) and from 32mm to 72mm (y). When
positioned in a corner area, spacing of at least 350mm
on the hinge side will allow the doors to open enough to
enable the removal of bins and shelves.
Note: For those models with telescopic extension slide-out
bins, the clearance required increases from 350mm to
550mm for top mount and bottom mount models, and to
450mm for the all refrigerator model to allow full access to
the bins’ contents as well as bin removal.

NOTE:
Doors are designed to sit proud of cabinetry (not flush).
The clearances shown above are the recommended
minimum clearances. The clearance at the rear must not
exceed 75mm.
Installing your refrigerator
Your new refrigerator should arrive with the front adjustable
rollers wound down, to tilt the top backwards by about
10mm from upright. This will allow your refrigerator door to
self-close, providing a consistent closed seal.

Height adjustable
front rollers
1. Roll the refrigerator into place.
2. The top of the refrigerator should be tilted back by
10mm (see diagram on left). This will allow the doors to
self-close providing a consistent door seal.
3. If the refrigerator isn’t tilted back, you can adjust the
two front rollers by turning the large, plastic roller nut.
(see diagram below). One turn of the nut increases the
height of the refrigerator by 10mm. If you have difficulty
turning the roller nut, have someone tilt the refrigerator
back, so you have better access. Alternatively, you can
access the rollers from the side, using a flat screwdriver.
(See diagram below).

5. If you find your refrigerator rocks from corner to corner,
it means your floor is uneven. Find a piece of plastic or
hardboard etc. and pack it firmly under the roller.
6. On certain floor surfaces the refrigerator may roll
forward during operation. A “Roller Stop”, which is
provided, can be placed under the front rollers.
Fixed
rear rollers
The stability foot should also be wound fully up so it will not
interfere with the operation of the rollers (see diagram in
Step 3).
CAUTION
The rollers are designed for forward or backward movement
only. They are not castors. Moving the refrigerator sideways
may damage your floor and the rollers.

8. When you have the appliance in its final position, it
needs to be stablisied. Wind the stability foot down
to the floor until it just makes contact with the floor. Lift
the front of the appliance to take the weight off the
stability foot, then turn it ¼ turn further to ensure firm
contact with the floor. Whenever you need to move the
appliance, be sure to wind the foot back up so that the
appliance can roll freely and be sure to reset it when
reinstalling.

9. Clean your refrigerator thoroughly following the
instructions on page 16 and wipe off any dust that has
accumulated during shipping.
10.Plug your refrigerator straight into its own power point
and never use a double adapter. If you need to roll the
refrigerator to get to the plug, remember to raise the
stability foot first.
11.Before you put any food in your refrigerator, it’s
recommended you leave it on for 2 or 3 hours to check
it is running properly.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed your new
refrigerator.
Refrigerators work by transferring heat from the food inside
to the outside air. This operation makes the back and sides
of the refrigerator (particularly at start-up) feel warm – which
is normal.
A cooling coil is located behind the rear wall of the freezer
section (in top mount, bottom mount and freezer models)
and behind the crisper in the all-refrigerator models.This coil
cools and removes moisture from the air inside.
Avoid placing food against the air vents in the refrigerator,
as it affects the efficient circulation. If the door is opened
frequently, a light frosting will occasionally occur on the
freezer’s interior. This is normal and will clear after a few
days.If the freezer door is accidentally kept open, a heavy
frost will coat the inside walls and should be removed.
Your new refrigerator uses a high-speed compressor,
along with other energy-efficient components, which may
make unusual sounds. These sounds simply indicate your
refrigerator is working how it should. They include:
• Compressor running noises;
• Air movement noise from the small fan motor;
• A gurgling sound, similar to water boiling;
• A popping noise, heard during automatic defrosting;
and
• A clicking noise, prior to compressor start-up.
Further details can be found on page 17.
TIPS & INFORMATION
• F or top mount refrigerators. (Where the freezer is on top
of the fresh food compartment)
– Don’t place food forward of the ribs on the freezer

Controlling the temperature
The default temperature for the refrigerator is 3°C
and -18°C for the freezer. If you want to change the
temperature, follow the instructions below. Make only
small adjustments and wait 24 hours to see if it’s correct.
Checking the softness of ice cream is a good indication
if your freezer is the right temperature, while feeling the
coldness of water kept in the refrigerator is a good way of
checking the temperature of the food compartment.
NOTE:
The freezer temperature alarm can be reset for 12 hours by
pressing the alarm reset button continuously for 10 seconds.
NOTE:
When you set a temperature, you set an average
temperature for the whole refrigerator cabinet. Temperatures
inside each compartment may vary, depending on how

using your appliance
SpillSafe™ glass shelves (where fitted)
Spillsafe™ glass shelves
keep spills on the shelf. A
shelf retaining system
minimises accidental
movement of shelves and
they can be adjusted to
various heights. Spillsafe™
glass shelves are not to be
used as slide out shelves. To remove the shelves, gently pull
them forward until the shelf comes clear of the shelf guides.
To return the shelf, make sure there is nothing behind that
may obstruct movement. Gently push the shelf into the
cabinet and back into position.

the telescopic slides, on each side of the bin. Using
your thumb and forefinger, lift the bin over the end of
the slide and clip in place. If the drawer is not fully
engaged on the slide, it’s possible the drawer won’t
stay on the slide if fully extended.
The end of slide must
be clipped into place
Bottle Holder
The bottle holder can be
used to store various
types of bottles like wine
or beer. Bottles should be
stored with the bottom
end towards the back of the refrigerator. Electronic models
are supplied with a chrome, full-width wine rack.
4. Fully close the bin.
Freezer Drawers
When replacing the drawers after cleaning, we recommend
fitting the lower drawer first.
Freezer drawers are fitted to
bottom mount models and
single door all freezer models.
The drawers are mounted on
telescopic extension slides, to
enable full access to the content
in the drawer. Clear plastic
fronts provide easy visibility of
foods.
To remove the drawer for cleaning,
1. Empty food from the drawer.
2. Remove the drawer by pulling it forward and lifting
the front to unhook it from the slides. Once you have
removed the drawer, ensure the slides are pushed back
so they are fully closed.
WARNING
Never close the door while the telescopic slides are
extended. This may damage the slide and/or refrigerator
or cause the slide to become disengaged from the
refrigerator.

General information
Cleaning the refrigerator
WARNING
BEFORE CLEANING: Turn the refrigerator off at the power
point and unplug the cord to prevent any chance of
electrocuting yourself.
• Doors and exterior (white & pacific silver)
You should only clean the doors with lukewarm soapy
water and a soft cloth.
• Stainless Steel
Your stainless steel refrigerator is manufactured from
mark-resistant stainless steel. This stainless steel has
a special advanced protective coating that eases
the removal of marks such as fingerprints and water
spots. To keep its appearance, clean it regularly with
lukewarm soapy water and a soft cloth.
CAUTION
Never use stainless steel cleaners, abrasive pads or other
cleaners that will scratch the surface. Damage to the
appliance after delivery is not covered by your warranty.
• Interior
Clean the inside of your refrigerator regularly with a
soft cloth, unscented mild soap and lukewarm water.
Thoroughly dry all surfaces and removable parts and
avoid getting water on the controls. Replace removable
parts, plug power cord in and switch the power on
before returning the food.
• Door seals
Always keep door seals clean by washing them with
a mild detergent and warm water, followed by a
thorough drying. Sticky food and drink can cause seals
to stick to the cabinet and tear when you open the
door.
CAUTION
Never use hot water, solvents, commercial kitchen cleaners,
aerosol cleaners, metal polishes, caustic or abrasive
cleaners, or scourers to clean your refrigerator. Many
commercially available cleaning products and detergents
contain solvents that will damage your refrigerator. Use only
a soft cloth with an unscented mild soap and lukewarm
water.
If your refrigerator has telescopic extension slides, simply
wipe them with a damp cloth to clean them and never
immerse them in water.
Safety
It is important to use your appliance safely. This means you
need to supervise young children and infirm persons when
they use it. You need to make sure that young children do
not play with the appliance. Follow the tips below.
always do this
Check the power point is properly earthed – if you are not
sure get an electrician to check it.
Switch off and unplug the refrigerator at the power point
before you clean or move it.
If the power supply cord is damaged, have it replaced by
the manufacturer, service agent or similarly qualified person.
never do this
Never let children play with the refrigerator.
Never store spray cans, explosive fluids or flammable liquids
in the refrigerator.
Never store fizzy drinks in the freezer compartment.
Never lick icy foods when they first come out of the freezer.
This can burn your your lips and mouth.
Never try to repair the refrigerator yourself.
Never use electric heaters or dryers to defrost the freezer
because you can receive an electric shock.
Never use electrical appliances inside the food storage areas.
This appliance contains insulation formed with flammable
blowing gases. For safety reasons, take care when you
dispose of it.
Do not damage the appliance circuit.
WARNING
When you dispose of your old refrigerator or freezer, remove
any doors to prevent children from being trapped inside.
WARNING
R600a refrigerant warning
This appliance contains a small quantity of environmentally
friendly, but flammable, non-synthetic R600a refrigerant:
•Ensure that the tubing of the refrigerant circuit is not
damaged during transportation and installation.
•Leaking refrigerant may cause eye injuries or ignite.
•The room for installing appliance must be at least 1m3
per 8g of refrigerant. The amount of refrigerant in the
appliance can be found on the rating plate inside the
appliance.
Switching off your refrigerator
If you switch your refrigerator for an extended
period, follow these steps to reduce the
chances of mould:
1. Remove all food.
2. Remove the power plug from the power point.
3. Thoroughly clean and dry the Interior.
4. Ensure that all the doors are wedged open slightly for air
circulation.
TROUBLESHOOTING
troubleshooting
problem
solution
problem
solution
Refrigerator is not
operating
• Check that the power cord is plugged
into the power outlet properly and that
the outlet is switched ‘ON’.
• 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.
• Try adjusting the temperature control to
a slightly “colder” position.
• It is normal for the freezer fan NOT to
operate during the automatic defrost
cycle, or for a short time after the
appliance is switched on.
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:
• Occasional gurgling, similar to water
boiling.
• Air flow noise (air circulates because of
a small fan).
• A popping noise heard during
automatic defrost.
• A clicking noise heard just before
the compressor starts (this is just
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.
• The back of the refrigerator cabinet is
touching the wall.
Remember it is quite normal for noise to
seem louder just after the refrigerator
starts operating.
• The interior may need cleaning.
• Some foods produce odours.
• Some containers and wrapping can
cause odours.
• Ask yourself if the odour started about
the same time you started storing
something unusual.
When the motor
seems to run more than
expected
Your new refrigerator has a large fridge
and freezer section to keep cool. So it is
normal to frequently hear the sound of the
motor. However, to keep operation to a
minimum check the following:
• Are doors kept open too long or too
often?
• Are controls set too cold? See
‘Controlling the temperature’ on pages
10 – 12.
• Have large amounts of warm food just
recently been stored? Summer, festive
seasons and holidays usually mean a
lot more work for your refrigerator.
• If the day is hot or the room is very
warm, the refrigerator will need to run
more than normal.
• The refrigerator will run more that
normal just after you install it or when it
has been turned off for a long time.
• Check that the appliance has enough
clearance at the sides, back and top.
Refer to the installation instructions on
page 8.
• Refer to ‘Controlling the temperature’
on pages 10 – 12.
• 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 the temperature’
on pages 10 – 12.
• Increase the temperature to avoid high
energy consumption.
Make sure you fully close the freezer and
fridge doors. If the doors are left open,
a heavy frost will coat the inside of the
freezer. If a frost develops, remove it and
take care to properly close the doors.
The defrost water tray, (located at the
back or underneath of the cabinet) may
not be properly positioned, or the drain
tube may not be properly positioned to
direct water into this tray. You may need
to pull the refrigerator away from the wall
to check the tray and tube.
Turn appliance off at the power point.
Leave off for three (3) minutes for the
memory to clear, then turn back on.
When there is
refrigerator/freezer
noise
If there are odours
inside the refrigerator
If the temperature in the
refrigerator is too warm
If the temperature in the
refrigerator is too cold
If heavy frosting occurs
in the freezer
If water drips on the

vacation mode
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 approved Service Centre or the dealer you bought
the refrigerator from. Be ready to quote the model number,
9-digit PNC and 8-digit serial number, which is stated on
the label inside the refrigerator compartment.
