USING THE APPLIANCE
This appliance is designed for
domestic use only, specifically for the
storage of edible foodstuffs.
This appliance is designed to operate in
ambient temperatures (surrounding air
temperature) between 10°C (50°F) and 32°C
(90°F). If these temperatures are exceeded
i.e., colder or warmer, the appliance will not
operate correctly. Should the ambient
temperatures be exceeded for long periods,
the temperature in the freezer section will rise
above -18°C and food spoilage may occur.
Before Use (Remove all securing tapes).
Wash the inside of the appliance with lukewarm
water with a little bicarbonate of soda added (5ml
to 0.5 litre of water). Do not use soap or
detergent as the smell may linger. Dry the
appliance thoroughly.
Do not use detergents, abrasive
powders, highly perfumed cleaning
products, wax polishes or products
containing alcohol.
To Start the Appliance
1. Allow the appliance to stand for 2 hours
after installation.
2. Plug in the appliance and switch on at the
mains supply.
3. Turn the thermostat control to the required
setting. A midway setting is usually suitable
for normal operation (see thermostat control).
4. Leave the appliance for approximately 4 hours
for the correct temperature to be reached
before placing food inside.
Thermostat Control
The thermostat control is situated under the flap
at the front of the top panel. The thermostat
control is marked from min to max.
Min (Cold)
Max (Coldest)
The temperature will be affected by:
Room temperature
How often the door is opened
How much food is stored
Position of the appliance
In determining the correct temperature control
setting, all these factors have to be considered
and some experimentation may be necessary.
Do not allow children to tamper with the
controls or play with the product.
Indicator Light
The green indicator light is situated in the control
panel under the flap.
When the appliance is switched on at the mains
the green indicator light will glow and continue to
glow until the appliance is switched off at the mains.
6
Green Indicator Light
Larder Compartment
The correct temperature for safe storage of fresh food inside is 0°C to 5°C (32°F to 41°F). The warmest
part of the fridge compartment is at the top of the cabinet and the coolest at the bottom.

Adjustable shelves
Store light items such as small cartons and jars
on the shelves provided in the door. The bottle
shelf can be used for the storage of heavier
bottles.
N.B. The bottleshelf is not adjustable/removable.
The bottle grippers must be fitted to the bottom
bottle shelf to ensure bottles are retained
securely. Fit the bottle grippers as shown.
The larder compartment is fitted with shelving
which are adjusted for the storage of different
sized articles.
If the door cannot be opened further than 90°
remove the shelves by tilting the shelf downwards
and pulling outwards.
7
The Freezer Compartment
The
symbol means that your freezer will
store frozen food at -18°C (-0.4°F) or colder
allowing for long term frozen food storage and
freezing of fresh food. The freezer temperature is
controlled automatically by the thermostat
situated in the control panel.
Due to the different installations, methods of
usage and weather conditions, adjustments to the
temperature settings may be required.
These are best assessed against a
temperature reading on a thermometer
buried in the frozen food. The reading
must be taken quickly as the thermometer
temperature will rise rapidly after removal.
Frozen Food Storage
The appliance has the following net storage
volume:
129 litres (4.6 cuft)
41.7 kg (92 lb)†
† This is a standard measurement and the
actual capacity depends upon the density
and sizes of the food. The above figures are
based on an average density of 0.32kg per
litre (20 lb per cuft).
Pre packed commercially frozen food should be
stored in accordance with the manufacturer's
instructions for a 4 star frozen food compartment
and should be put in the freezer as soon as
possible after purchase. Your freezer provides for
long term storage which generally means up to 3
months but the length of the time can vary and it
is important to follow the recommended times
shown on packets of commercially frozen food.
Do not place sealed containers or
carbonated liquids such as fizzy drinks
into the freezer as it creates pressure
on the container which may cause it to
explode resulting to damage to the
freezer.
Ice cubes and ice lollies should not be
consumed immediately after removal
from the freezer as it may result in low
temperature skin abrasions.
Manufacturers storage times should be
adhered to.
8
Freezing Fresh Foods
The maximum quantity of food you can freeze in
24 hours is 9kg. Place the fresh food on the top
freezer shelf. Food may need rearranging to
achieve this.
Frozen food should not be refrozen
once it has thawed out.
Do not remove items from the freezer if
your hands are damp/wet, as this could
cause skin abrasions or 'frost/freezer
burns'.
Hints and Tips
Any opened packets of frozen food,
should be rewrapped in airtight materials
to prevent surface evaporation which
cause s drying or 'freezer burn'.
Frozen food which is allowed to thaw
accidentally should either be used
immediately or thrown away. Alternatively
if the food is uncooked and has not been
completely defrosted it can be cooked and
then refrozen.
Aim to check dates on packets and rotate
food regularly. Although storage longer
than recommended is not harmful, flavours
and textures begin to change.
HINTS AND TIPS
Normal Operating Sounds
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling
sounds when the refrigerant is pumped
through the coils or tubing at the rear, to the
cooling plate/evaporator or to the fixed
freezer shelves.
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is
being pumped round, and you will hear a
whirring sound or pulsating noise from the
compressor.
A thermostat controls the compressor, and
you will hear a faint 'click' when the
thermostat cuts in and out.
Food Storage
To obtain the best results from your appliance,
neither hot foods nor liquids which may
evaporate, should be placed in the larder
compartment.
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it
straight away. The use of an insulated
container is advisable. When you arrive home
place the frozen food in the freezer
immediately.
Keep the time between buying chilled food
and placing it in your fridge as short as
possible.
Do not push food together too much, try to
allow air to circulate around each item.
Do not store food uncovered.
Ensure that food is placed in the freezer that
is dated and labelled and used in date order
to ensure that food is consumed at its best.
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator
and clean, refer to cleaning and maintenance.
Energy Saving Advice
Do not install the cabinet close to sources of
heat, such as a cooker, dishwasher or
radiator.
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of
the cabinet are not obstructed.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages
before placing them in the freezer.
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge or
freezer.
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should
be placed in the fridge before being
transferred to the freezer.
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will
ensure safer defrosting of foods and reduce
the work of the refrigeration unit.
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods, or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet, and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing
the door from closing properly.
It is advisable to periodically clean the
refrigeration system at the back of the
appliance with a duster or vacuum cleaner.
In the Event of a Power Failure
If there is a power failure during the storage of
frozen foods, keep the door closed. If the
temperature within your freezer should rise do not
refreeze the food without checking it's condition.
The following guidelines should assist you:
Ice Cream: Once thawed should be discarded.
Fruit and Vegetables: If soft should be cooked
and used up.
Bread and Cakes: Can be refrozen without
danger.
Shellfish: Should be refrigerated and used up
quickly.
Cooked Dishes: i.e. casseroles, should be
refrigerated and used up.
Large Pieces of Meat: Can be re-frozen
providing there are ice crystals remaining within
them.
Small Joints: Should be cooked and then
re-frozen as cooked dishes.
Chicken: Should be cooked and re-frozen as a
fresh dish
.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Before any maintenance or cleaning work
is carried out DISCONNECT the appliance
from the ELECTRICITY supply.
Internal Cleaning
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water
and bicarbonate of soda (5ml to 0.5 litre of water).
Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Do not use detergents, abrasive powders,
highly perfumed cleaning products, wax
polishes or cleaning products containing
bleach or alcohol.
Clean the drain hole of the water trough at regular
intervals and ensure that the drain hole is clear at
all times. If blocked, carefully clear using a piece
of flexible curtain wire inserted into the drain
outlet to remove the blockage.
Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to
ensure they are clean and free from debris.
External Cleaning
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water.
Do NOT use abrasive products.
There are sharp edges on the underside
of the product so care should be taken
when cleaning.
Once or twice a year dust the condenser (black
grille) and the compressor at the back of the
appliance, with a brush or vacuum cleaner, as an
accumulation of dust will affect the performance
of the appliance and cause excessive electricity
consumption.
To Change the Light Bulb
1.
Switch off the appliance and disconnect
from the electricity supply.
Remove the light cover by removing the
screw at the rear with a screwdriver.
Pull the rear cover outwards towards the
middle of the cabinet.
Unscrew the bulb and replace it with a
new 15 watt E14 SES bulb (available from
your local Service Force Centre).
Replace the cover by sliding it into its
original position.
Replace the screw.

Defrosting Your Appliance
The fridge compartment is defrosted
automatically. Defrost water from the cooling plate
runs out of the drain and onto a tray on the motor
compressor where it is evaporated. This process
is completely automatic. Droplets of water on the
cooling plate during defrosting are quite normal
and will freeze on the plate afterwards.
In the freezer compartment, frost accumulates on
the refrigerated shelves during normal operation.
Defrosting should be carried out when the frost
build up is approximately 6mm (¼") thick.
To Defrost the Freezer

5.
6.
7.
Wrap any food in layers of newspaper or
blankets.
Switch the appliance off at the wall socket
and remove the plug.
Open the freezer door.
Fold out the defrost flip spout.
Place a suitable container under the spout
to collect the defrost water.
After defrosting, clean and dry the interior.
Switch the appliance on and replace any
frozen food.
Defrosting can be speeded up by putting
bowls of hot (not boiling) water in the
freezer and loosening the frost with a
suitable plastic scraper.
If the temperature of frozen food is
allowed to rise during defrosting, its
storage life may be shortened.
When the Appliance is Not in Use
When the appliance is not in use for long periods,
disconnect from the electricity supply, empty all of
the food and clean the appliance, leaving the
door ajar to prevent unpleasant smells.
