BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE
Installing and operating your fridge freezer
Before using your fridge freezer, you should pay attention to
the following points:
• The operating voltage for your fridge freezer is 220-240 V
at 50Hz.
• We do not accept responsibility for any damages that
occur due to ungrounded usage.
• Place your fridge freezer where it will not be exposed to
direct sunlight.
• Your appliance should be at least 50 cm away from stoves,

BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE
Before using your fridge freezer
• When using your fridge 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.
• Your fridge may have a smell when it is operated for the
first time. This is normal and the smell will fade away when
your fridge starts to cool.
Information on the Frost Free technology
The Frost Free refrigerators are different from the other static
refrigerators in terms of their operational system.
In normal fridges, the humidity entering the fridge due to
opening the door and the humidity inherent in the food causes
freezing in the freezer compartment. To defrost the frost and
ice in the freezer compartment, you are periodically required to
turn off the fridge, place the food that needs to be kept frozen
in a separately cooled container and remove the ice gathered
in the freezer compartment.
The situation is completely different in no-frost fridges. Dry
and cold air is blown into the fridge and freezer compartments
homogeneously and evenly from several points via a blower
fan. Cold air dispersed homogeneously and evenly between
the shelves cools all of your food equally and uniformly, thus
preventing humidity and freezing.

ARRANGING FOOD IN THE APPLIANCE
Refrigerator compartment
• To reduce humidity and consequent increase of frost never place
liquids in unsealed containers in the refrigerator. Frost tends to
concentrate in the coldest parts of the evaporator and in time will
require more frequent defrosting.
• Never place warm food in the refrigerator. Warm food should be
allowed to cool at room temperature and should be arranged to
ensure adequate air circulation in the refrigerator compartment.
• Nothing should touch on the back wall as it will cause frost and the
packages can stick on the back wall. Do not open the refrigerator
door too frequently.
• Arrange the meat and cleaned fish(wrapped in packages or sheets
of plastic) which you will use in 1-2 days, in the bottom section of
the refrigerator compartment(that is above the crisper) as this is the
coldest section and will ensure the best storing conditions.
• You can put the fruits and vegetables into crisper without packing.
Some recommendations have been specified below for the placement
and storage of your food in the cooling compartment.
NOTE: Potatoes, onions and garlic should not be stored in the refrigerator.

ARRANGING FOOD IN THE APPLIANCE
Freezer compartment
• Use the deep freeze compartment of your refrigerator for storing
frozen food for a long time and producing ice.
• Place the food you would like to freeze initially in the upper basket of
the freezer. Please do not place food nearby the already frozen food.
You may place your food next to the other frozen food after they are
frozen (for at least 24 hours).
• You should freeze your food (meat, minced meat, fish, etc.) by
dividing them into portions in such a way that they can be consumed
in portions.
• Please do not refreeze frozen food once it is thawed. It may pose a
danger for your health.
• Do not place hot meals in your deep freeze before they are cold.
• As you buy frozen food, make sure they were frozen under appropriate
conditions and that the packaging is not torn.
• While storing frozen food, the storage conditions on the package
must be observed. If there are no instructions, the food has to be
consumed in the shortest possible period of time.
• Frozen food has to be transported before it perishes and it should be
placed in the fast freezing shelf as soon as possible. Do not use the
door shelves for freezing purposes.
• The storage durations of frozen food changes depending on the
environment temperature, the frequent opening and closing of the
doors, thermostat settings, food type and the length of period that
elapsed from the time the food was bought to the time it entered the
freezer. Always abide by the instructions on the package and never
exceed the storage duration.
Some recommendations have been specified on pages 26, 27 and 28 for
the placement and storage of your food in the deep freeze compartment.

TIPS FOR SAVING ENERGY
1.Install the appliance in a cool, well ventilated room, but not in direct
sunlight and not near a heat source (radiator, cooker, etc.). Otherwise
use an insulating plate.
2. Allow warm food and drinks to cool down outside the appliance. 3.
When thawing frozen food, place it in the refrigerator compartment.
The low temperature of the frozen food will help to cool the refrigerator
compartment when it is thawing. This will help to save energy. If the
frozen food is put out, it results in a waste of energy.
4.Cover drinks or other liquids when placing them in the appliance
Otherwise humidity increases in the appliance. Therefore, the working
time gets longer. Also covering drinks and other liquids helps to preserve
smell and taste.
5.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.
6.Keep the covers of the different temperature compartments (crisper,
chiller ...etc. ) closed
7.Door gasket must be clean and pliable. Replace gaskets if worn.
