Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the refrigerator and the
freezer is regulated by a single thermostat with 6
temperature positions and an “OFF” (O) position.
Position 6 = maximum coldness
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
The intermediate position is usually the most
suitable (3-4).
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the
following factors:
– room temperature
– how often the door is opened
– how much food is stored
– position of the appliance
Important
During prolonged periods of abnormally hot weather,
if the thermostat is set on too high a number, the
cooling system may operate continuously and the
fridge cooling plate may not defrost. Turning the knob
to a lower number will cause the automatic
defrosting to resume.

Frozen food storage
Making ice cubes
When you first start the freezer or if the freezer has
been out of use for some time, we advise you to
depress the ambient switch for at least two hours
before storing frozen food.
The appliance is provided with one plastic ice cube
tray.
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the
manufacturer.
To turn out the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight
twist to release the cubes.
Finally, do not open the door frequently or leave it
open longer than is absolutely necessary.
Fill the tray 3/4 full to allow the ice to expand and
place it in one of the freezer drawers.
Fresh food refrigeration
D023
Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks etc.), in
the freezer compartment.
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
flavour.
Ice lollies, if consumed immediately after removal
from the freezer, can cause low temperature skin
burns.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands
are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or
“frost/freezer burns”.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Warning
Open the door and push the appliance against the
side of the kitchen unit opposite to that of appliance
hinges.
Fasten the appliance with 4 screws provided in the
kit included with the appliance.
Snap ventgrille (C) and hinge cover (D) into position .
D
Important
D723
C
Press in the joint covers between the appliance and
the kitchen unit.
In the event of a power cut the food in the freezer will
not be affected if the power cut is short and if the
freezer is full. Do not open the door. Should the food
begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must
not be re-frozen .
Thawing
Frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in
the fridge or at room temperature depending on the
time available. Small food items may even be cooked
from frozen; in this case cooking will take longer.
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and
then refrozen.
D724
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
Apply covers (B) on joint cover lugs and into hinge
holes.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
B
D726
16
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & wild fowl): wrap in
polythene bags and place on top of the salad
crispers.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad crispers.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
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.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the
oven instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in
the oven.
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.

Frozen food storage
Making ice cubes
When you first start the freezer or if the freezer has
been out of use for some time, we advise you to
depress the ambient switch for at least two hours
before storing frozen food.
The appliance is provided with one plastic ice cube
tray.
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the
manufacturer.
To turn out the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight
twist to release the cubes.
Finally, do not open the door frequently or leave it
open longer than is absolutely necessary.
Fill the tray 3/4 full to allow the ice to expand and
place it in one of the freezer drawers.
Fresh food refrigeration
D023
Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks etc.), in
the freezer compartment.
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
flavour.
Ice lollies, if consumed immediately after removal
from the freezer, can cause low temperature skin
burns.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands
are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or
“frost/freezer burns”.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Warning
Open the door and push the appliance against the
side of the kitchen unit opposite to that of appliance
hinges.
Fasten the appliance with 4 screws provided in the
kit included with the appliance.
Snap ventgrille (C) and hinge cover (D) into position .
D
Important
D723
C
Press in the joint covers between the appliance and
the kitchen unit.
In the event of a power cut the food in the freezer will
not be affected if the power cut is short and if the
freezer is full. Do not open the door. Should the food
begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must
not be re-frozen .
Thawing
Frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in
the fridge or at room temperature depending on the
time available. Small food items may even be cooked
from frozen; in this case cooking will take longer.
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and
then refrozen.
D724
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
Apply covers (B) on joint cover lugs and into hinge
holes.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
B
D726
16
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & wild fowl): wrap in
polythene bags and place on top of the salad
crispers.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad crispers.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
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.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the
oven instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in
the oven.
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.

Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the refrigerator and the
freezer is regulated by a single thermostat with 6
temperature positions and an “OFF” (O) position.
Position 6 = maximum coldness
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
The intermediate position is usually the most
suitable (3-4).
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the
following factors:
– room temperature
– how often the door is opened
– how much food is stored
– position of the appliance
Important
During prolonged periods of abnormally hot weather,
if the thermostat is set on too high a number, the
cooling system may operate continuously and the
fridge cooling plate may not defrost. Turning the knob
to a lower number will cause the automatic
defrosting to resume.
