REFRIGERATOR
IMPORTANT WARNINGS REGARDING FOOD STORAGE
Correct use of the appliance, appropriate packaging, maintaining
the right temperature, and observing the food hygiene standards
has a decisive impact on the quality of food storage.
Observe the expiry dates for the food, specified on the
packaging.
Food stored in the refrigerator should be kept in closed
containers or appropriate packaging to prevent them from
emitting or receiving odours.
Do not store inflammable, volatile, and explosive substances in
the refrigerator.
Bottles with high alcohol content should be tightly sealed and
stored in an upright position.
Some organic solutions, essential oils in lemon and orange peel,
butter acid, etc. may damage the plastic surfaces in case of a
prolonged contact, causing damage and premature ageing of
these materials.
Unpleasant odour warns of lacking cleanliness of the appliance or
perished contents (see Cleaning the Appliance).

FREEZING AND STORING
FROZEN FOOD
FREEZING PROCESS
Maximum amount of fresh food that may be inserted at once is
specified on the appliance rating plate. If the amount of food to
be frozen exceeds the indicated amount, the quality of freezing
will be inferior; in addition, the quality of the food already frozen
will deteriorate.
• 24 hours before freezing, rotate the thermostat knob to position 5-7. After 24 hours
of super freeze operation, insert the fresh food onto the freezer compartment shelf.
Approximately 24 hours after inserting the fresh food into the appliance, rotate
the thermostat knob to normal operating temperature (see section Selecting the
temperature).
Make sure the fresh food is not in contact with the food that is already frozen.
• To freeze smaller amounts of food (up to 1 kg), adjusting the thermostat knob setting is
not necessary (observe the instructions in the section Choosing the Temperature).
IMPORTANT WARNINGS ON FREEZING
FRESH FOOD
Only freeze the food that is suitable for freezing in the freezer.
Make sure the food you freeze is of high quality and fresh.
Choose appropriate packaging and use the packaging correctly.
Packaging should not be permeable to humidity; it should be
airtight to prevent the food from drying out and loss of vitamins.
Label the food; indicate the type of food, amount, and date of
freezing.
556532
It is important that the food is frozen as quickly as possible.
Therefore, keep the packages small. Refrigerate the food before
freezing.
17
STORAGE OF INDUSTRIALLY FROZEN
FOOD
• When storing and using frozen food, observe the manufacturer's instructions.
Temperature and expiry date are indicated on the packaging.
• Only choose food with undamaged packaging, stored in freezers at temperatures of
-18°C or lower.
• Do not purchase food covered in frost as this indicates they have been partly defrosted
several times and that they are of inferior quality.
• Protect the food from thawing during transport. In case of an increase in temperature,
storage time will be shorter and quality will deteriorate.
FROZEN FOOD STORAGE TIME
Recommended storage time in the freezer

DEFROSTING FROZEN FOOD
Freezing the food does not kill the microorganisms. After the food is defrosted or thawed,
bacteria is re-activated and the food spoils quickly. Use the partially or completely
defrosted food as soon as possible.
Partial thawing decreases the nutritive value of the food, particularly fruit, vegetables, and
ready-to-eat food.
556532
18
DEFROSTING THE APPLIANCE
AUTOMATIC REFRIGERATOR DEFROSTING
Refrigerator does not need defrosting because the ice on the back interior wall is thawed
automatically.
Any accumulated ice will melt when the compressor unit is inactive. The droplets are
collected in a groove/gutter, drained trough a hole, and discharged into a tray in the
bottom of the appliance base.
If an excessive layer of ice is formed on the rear wall of refrigerator interior (3-5 mm),
switch off the appliance and defrost the appliance manually.
In this case, it is also advisable to empty the condensate tray on the bottom of the
appliance.
- Remove the cabinet kickplate.
- Reach into the openings on the
switchboard and release the latch.
- Pull the plate towards you and remove it.
- Remove the condensate tray and empty
it.
DEFROSTING A CONVENTIONAL FREEZER
• Defrost the freezer when an approximately 3-5 milimeter layer of of frost or ice has built up.
• 24 hours before defrosting, activate the super freeze function to additionally cool the
food (see section »Freezing Process«).
556532
After this period, remove the food from the freezer and protect them from defrosting.
• Switch off the appliance (see chapter Switching the appliance on/off) and unplug the
power cord.
• Do not use any defrosting sprays as they may melt the plastic parts or harm your health.
• Do not use a knife or any other sharp object to remove the frost, because you may
damage a pipe of the cooling system.
• To speed up the defrosting process, place a pot of hot water on the glass shelf.
• Clean and dry the appliance interior (see Cleaning the Appliance).
19
CLEANING THE APPLIANCE
Before cleaning, unplug the appliance from the power mains – switch off the appliance
(see chapter Switching the Appliance On/Off) and unplug the power cord from the wall
outlet.
• Use a soft cloth to clean all surfaces. Cleaners that contain abrasive substances, acids,
or solvents are not suitable for cleaning as they may damage the surface.
Clean the appliance exterior with water or a mild solution of suds. Lacquer-coated and
aluminium surfaces may be cleaned with lukewarm water to which you have added a mild
detergent. Use of cleaners with low alcohol content is allowed (e.g. window cleaners).
Do not use cleaners containing alcohol for cleaning plastic materials.
Appliance interior can be cleaned with lukewarm water to which you can add some
vinegar.
• A gutter and an opening through which
the water from thawed ice flows are
located underneath the cooling panel that
cools the refrigerator interior. The gutter
and the opening may not be clogged.
Inspect them often and clean if necessary
(e.g. with a plastic straw).
• Frost or ice build-up, 3-5 mm thick, will
increase power consumption. Therefore, it
should be regularly removed. Do not use
any sharp objects, solvents, or sprays.
• To vacuum the dust from the condenser
unit:
- Remove the cabinet kickplate.
- Reach into the openings on the
switchboard and release the latch.
- Pull the plate towards you and remove it.
- Pull out the condensate tray.
- Use a vacuum cleaner to clean the dust
from the condenser unit.
- Replace the condensate tray and the
switchboard by observing the reverse
order.
• After cleaning, switch the appliance back
on and insert the food.
556532

TROUBLESHOOTING
Cause or remedy:
Appliance is connected
to the power mains but it
does not work.
• Make sure there is voltage in the power outlet and that
the appliance is switched on.
Cooling system operates
continuously for a long
period of time:
• Too high environment temperature.
• Door opened too frequently or too long.
• Door not closed correctly (possible impurities on the
seal, misaligned door, damaged seal etc.).
• Too much fresh food inserted at once.
• Insufficient compressor and condenser unit cooling.
Clean the condenser unit.
Excessive build-up of
ice on the back wall of
refrigerator interior can be
a result of the following:
• Door opened too frequently or too long.
• Warm food placed in the refrigerator.
• Food in contact with the back interior wall of the
refrigerator.
• Poor door sealing.
• If the seal is dirty or damaged, clean it or replace it.
Build-up of ice or frost in
the freezer interior may be
a result of the following:
• Door opened too frequently or too long.
• Door not properly closed.
• Poor door sealing.
• If the seal is dirty or damaged, clean or replace it.
Water leaking from the
refrigerator:
• Clogged water discharge opening or water dripping past
the water gutter.
• Clean the clogged opening, for example using a plastic
straw.
• If a thick layer of ice builds up, defrost the appliance
manually (see Defrosting the Appliance).
Door is difficult to open:
• If you are trying to open the freezer door after just
having closed it, this could be difficult to do.
As you open the door, some cool air escapes from
the appliance and it is replaced by warm air from the
environment. When this air is cooled, negative pressure is
generated which results in problems as you try to open
the door. After a few minutes, the condition is normalized
and the door can be easily opened again.

556532
22
INFORMATION ABOUT
APPLIANCE NOISE
Cooling in refrigerator freezers is made possible by a cooling system that also includes a
compressor (and a fan with some appliances), which generates some noise. The level of
noise depends on installation, proper use, and age of the appliance.
• After connecting the appliance to the power mains, compressor operation, or the
sound of flowing liquid, may be somewhat louder. This is not a sign of malfunction and it
will not affect the useful life of the appliance. In time, appliance operation and this noise
will become quieter.
• Sometimes, unusual or loud noise may appear during appliance operation; these are
mostly the result of improper installation:
- The appliance must stand level and stable on a solid base.
- The appliance may not be in contact with a wall or adjacent furniture.
- Make sure the interior equipment sits firmly in its place and that the noise is not
caused by cans, bottles or other containers placed next to each other.
• Due to the higher workload on the cooling system when the door is opened more
frequently or for a longer time, when a large amount of fresh food is introduced, or
when intensive freezing or cooling functions are activated, the appliance can temporarily
generate more noise.
