SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Ecological Hints and Tips:
We have provided a few important hints and tips, so that you can save on the cost of energy and
help protect the environment.
Do not install the Fridge Freezer close to sources of heat such as a radiator.
Environmental Information:
Once installation is complete, please dispose of the packaging with due regard to safety
and the environment. Disposal instructions can be found on the rear cover.
Your Fridge Freezer does not contain gases which damage the ozone layer, in either its
refrigerant circuit or insulation materials.
Install the Fridge Freezer in a well ventilated room and keep the openings clear from
obstruction.
Do not install the Fridge Freezer on a wet floor or in a location with high humidity/moisture
content.
No Frost Technology
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should be placed in the fridge compartment before
being transferred to the freezer.
Pack all foods into airtight packages before placing them into the freezer compartment.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the doors from closing properly.
Try to avoid keeping the doors open for long periods or opening the doors too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
05
T: 0333 577 7232
Your Fridge Freezer differs from many other
standard Fridge Freezers.
Other Fridge Freezers may experience
freezing in the freezer compartment due to
door openings and the humidity in the food.
In such Fridge Freezers defrosting is required;
the fridge has to be periodically turned
off, the frozen food moved to a suitable
container and the ice gathered in the freezer
compartment removed.
Your ‘No Frost’ Fridge Freezer prevents such
problems by evenly blowing dry cold air into
the fridge and freezer compartments through
a blower fan. This cools your food evenly and
uniformly, preventing humidity and freezing.

For safe operation, it is important that your Fridge Freezer is stable and balanced. The two
adjustable feet at the front are used to level your Fridge Freezer. Make sure that your Fridge
Freezer is level before placing any foodstuffs inside it.
The thermostat (Figure 5) is used to regulate the temperature in the fridge and freezer
compartments. It can be set to any value from 1-6, where 6 is the setting with the lowest
temperature. For normal everyday use, we recommend a value of 3-5.
1 To increase the height of the Fridge Freezer, turn the feet clockwise (Figure 4).
2 To decrease the height of the Fridge Freezer, turn the feet anti-clockwise (Figure 4).
1 To decrease the temperature, turn the thermostat dial clockwise.
2 To increase the temperature, turn the thermostat dial anti-clockwise.
We do not recommend that you operate your Fridge Freezer in environments colder then
100C as efficiency is reduced.

USAGE
FOOD STORAGE TIPS
BEFORE USING YOUR FRIDGE FREEZER
FOOD STORAGE GUIDANCE
When using your Fridge Freezer for the first time, or after transportation , keep it in an
upright position for at least 3 hours before plugging into the mains. This allows efficient
operation and prevents damage to the compressor.
To help you use your Fridge Freezer efficiently, please take the time to read the following tips and
guidance.
Storage Areas:
We recommend that you wipe all shelving and trays with a cloth soaked in warm water
mixed with a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate before use. After cleaning, rinse with warm
water and dry.
You may notice a slight odour when using your Fridge Freezer for the first time. This is
perfectly normal and will fade away once the fridge starts to cool.
Before using your Fridge Freezer, make sure that it has been connected to an appropriate
mains power supply and is switched on at the socket.
The circulation of air within your Fridge Freezer causes areas of different temperatures. It is
recommended that you make use of these areas when storing your food.
The coldest area of the fridge compartment is at the bottom, above the vegetable and meat
cases. We recommend that you use this area to store food that will perish easily, such as fish,
ready meals, baked goods and dairy products.
The warmest area of you fridge is the top shelf of the door. We recommend that you store butter
and cheeses in this shelf.
Storing food:
When using your Fridge Freezer for the first time, set the thermostat to a value of 4 for the
first 24 hours.
Your Fridge Freezer has a 5 minute built in delay function, designed to prevent damage
to the compressor. When power is applied to your Fridge Freezer, it will begin to operate
normally after 5 minutes.
It is best to store you food covered or packaged, to prevent it from drying out, and to prevent
smells affecting other food in your Fridge. Store fruit and vegetables loose in the vegetable
containers. Avoid storing potatoes, onions and garlic in your refrigerator.
Other tips you might find helpful are:
Wash your food before storage.
Allow warm or hot food to cool down before storing. This helps to reduce power
consumption.
Keep as much space as possible between your items of food. This allows the cold air to
circulate freely around them.

FOOD STORAGE TIPS
Take care when storing tropical fruit such as pineapples as they can quickly deteriorate in
lower temperatures.
Divide and separate food into smaller pieces before storage.
Cover or wrap food to prevent odours. We recommend that you store meat loosely covered
as this allows air to circulate around the meat causing the surface to dry slightly, helping to
prevent the growth of bacteria.
Do not store food close to the lamp, or block the cover or the cooling compartment.
The table below is a quick guide, showing you the most efficient way to store the major food groups
in your refrigerator compartment.

The Freezer Compartment:
You should use the freezer compartment of your Fridge Freezer for storing food for long periods
and making ice. Aim to freeze fresh food as quickly as possible so that it keeps its taste and
appearance.
We recommend that you place food you would like to freeze in the upper tray of the freezer
compartment for 24 hours before placing it next to other frozen foods. It is important that you do
not exceed the maximum freezing capacity of your Fridge Freezer, this will help to ensure that
your food freezes as quickly as possible. The maximum freezing capacity for freezing within a 24
hour period is 4.2 kg/24 hrs.
The storage durations of frozen food can be changed by a variety of factors, such as; the
frequency of the doors opening and closing, thermostat settings, food types and the period
of time that elapsed from when the food was acquired to the time it entered the freezer. It is
important that you follow the packaging on frozen foods and do not exceed the storage duration.

May Be Used From
Frozen
From time to time it will be necessary to carry out cleaning of your Fridge Freezer.
Shelled and washed
In the event of a power cut, please do not open the door of the freezer compartment. Your Fridge
Freezer will preserve your frozen food in an ambient environmental temperature of 250C for
approximately 13 hours. This time period will be shorter if the ambient temperature is higher.
When power is re-applied after a power cut your Fridge Freezer will not operate for 4-5 minutes.
This is to allow the gas in the cooling system to balance and is perfectly normal.
Before cleaning your Fridge Freezer, turn your mains power supply off and remove the plug
from the socket.
WARNING: Do not re-freeze frozen food once it has thawed. It may be a danger to your
health.
Ice Cube Tray:
Your can make ice cubes using the ice cube tray supplied with your Fridge Freezer;
Fill the ice cube tray three quarters full with water and place it on the bottom of one of the
freezer drawers.
Do not wash your Fridge Freezer by pouring water on it.
Use a warm, soapy cloth or sponge to the wipe the interior and exterior of your Fridge
Freezer.
Carefully remove all shelves and drawers by sliding outwards or upwards and clean with
soapy water. Do not wash in a washing machine or dish washer.
Clean the condenser at the back of your Fridge Freezer at least once a year with a soft brush
or vacuum cleaner.
Do not use solvents, abrasive cleaners, glass cleaners or all purpose cleaning agents to
clean your Fridge Freezer. They may damage the plastic surfaces and other components
with the chemicals they contain.

CLEANING AND CARE
Cleaning The Vaporisation Container:
Replacing the Lamp Bulb:
Your Fridge Freezer uses ‘No Frost’ technology and performs fully automatic defrosting. The water
formed as a result of this automatic defrosting flows into the vaporisation container at the rear of
your Fridge Freezer and evaporates. We recommend cleaning the vaporisation container at regular
intervals to prevent odours from building up.
To replace the bulb:
1 Check that your Fridge Freezer is turned off and unplugged from the mains.
To clean the vaporisation container:
2 Apply light pressure to the sides of the light cover and carefully pull downwards.
(Figure 7 a ).
1 Remove the vaporisation container by unscrewing the 2 screws ( a and b ) (Figure 6)
3 Unscrew the bulb by turning it clockwise, and remove (Figure 7 b ).
2 Clean the vaporisation container with warm soapy water and dry with a cloth.
4 Replace with a 15 Watt bulb.
2 Re-fit the vaporisation container by screwing it back into position.
5 Re-fit the light cover, by pushing it upwards it until it clicks back into position (Figure 7 c ).
