To prepare your appliance for use and check that it is running correctly, take the following steps.
Install all shelves and compartments removed during transport in the correct positions.
Clean the fridge/freezer and accessories to remove any dust that accumulated during packing and
The interior light of the appliance will light up when the door is open.
Set the temperature control to the coldest temperature and let the refrigerator operate for one hour.
The freezer should get slightly chilled and the motor should run smoothly with a soft hum and no
Your fridge/freezer is operated by a compressor which switches “on and off” to maintain the internal
temperature. When the compressor is new, it requires running in for a period of up to five months.
During this period, it may be slightly noisy. This is quite normal and does not represent a fault.
Store food once the temperature in the refrigerator is sufficiently low. It takes a few hours after
starting the refrigerator to reach the proper temperature.
If the appliance does not operate correctly, check the electricity supply. If the problem persists,
contact your dealer.

When storing food in the appliance,
follow the recommendations below.
• Allow warm food and beverages to cool down
before storing them in the appliance.
• Ensure that food is well-wrapped or covered
before it is stored. This will prevent food from
dehydrating, deteriorating in colour or losing
flavor and will help maintain freshness. It will
also prevent cross-flavouring.
• Never let any oil or grease come into contact
with the plastic fittings or door seals, as these
materials easily become porous.
• Never store any explosive substances inside
the appliance. High-proof alcohol should only
be stored upright in tightly sealed containers.
A. Refrigerator
Transparent, safety glass shelf (optional)
• Place food in storage containers and lay the items out
at suitable intervals.
• The storage shelf is of an unbreakable, transparent material,
so that you can use it safely.
Fresh salad drawers
• Vegetable and fruit can be stored in this compartment.
• It is possible, if you need more space to store vegetable
and fruits, to remove drawers.
Dairy and multi-purpose guard
• Store fatty foods, like butter and cheese.
• Store small, packed foods, like milk, yogurt and
Egg tray
• Put eggs into the egg tray as shown in the figure and
store the tray in a convenient place in one of the
multi-purpose guards.
Bottle guard
• Store small bottles and cartons (1 litre) of beer, milk,
juice in the upper part and large bottles and cartons
(1.5 litres) in the lower part.

Page 9
B. Freezer
Upper freezer drawer
• Store packed frozen foods, like ice cream
and bacon.
Middle/lower freezer drawer
• Store fresh meat and fish or dried foods,
which are divided into suitably sized
Wrapping food
Pack the food in suitably sized portions for your household.
Vegetable and fruit portions should be no heavier than 1 kg, while meat portions can be up
to 2.5 kg.
Smaller portions freeze through more quickly and the quality is thereby maintained better when
defrosting and preparing the food.
It is important to seal food in airtight bags or containers before freezing to prevent it from losing
favor or dehydrating.
Wrap the food, press out any air and seal it airtight.
Suitable wrapping materials:
Plastic bags, cling-film, aluminium foil and freezer containers. These items are available from
any dealer.
Unsuitable wrapping materials:
Wrapping paper, greaseproof paper, cellophane, bin bags or used carrier bags.
Suitable sealing materials:
Rubber bands, plastic clips, string, freezer tape or similar.
Plastic film and bags may be heat-sealed using a special sealing iron or press.
Before placing a package in the freezer, it should be clearly labelled with the contents and
date of freezing.
