Fridge use
• Never put liquids in the refrigerator uncovered.
• Never put hot foods in the refrigerator. Warm food should
be allowed to cool to room temperature before being put
into the refrigerator.
• Nothing should rest against the rear wall of the
refrigerator, as this will cause frost and possible
condensation problems which will be difficult to remove.
• Make sure food is clean and any extra water is wiped
away before putting into the fridge.
• Wrap or cover food before putting into the fridge. This
will help prevent the loss of moisture, keep food fresh
and avoid unpleasant odours.
•
Sort foods prior to storing. Any foods to be used soon
should be stored at the front of the shelf to prevent
deterioration caused by the door being open for
prolonged periods.
• Do not overfill the fridge. There should be sufficient
space between the foods to allow the cool air to
circulate.
• Thawing frozen foods in the fridge compartment will help
to keep the temperature low and save energy.
• Never store raw meats above cooked meats or other produce. This will help to prevent juices from raw meat
contaminating other foodstuffs.
6
Freezer use
• The freezer compartments are designed to store only
frozen food.
• Never put hot or warm foods in the freezer, allow them to
cool fully before putting them into the freezer.
•
Follow the instructions on the food packaging for storage
of frozen food. If no information is provided, foods should
not be stored for more than three months after the
purchase date.
• Store food in small packages (ideally less than 2kg). This
reduces the freezing time and improves the quality of the
food after thawing.
• Wrap food before putting into the freezer. To stop the
wrapping sticking together, ensure it is dry.
•
Label the food before freezing with information including
type of food and dates of storage and expiry.
• Once food is thawed, it must not be refrozen. Only
defrost as much food as is required to prevent wastage.
•
Bottled or canned drinks should not be stored in the
freezer compartments as they could explode.
• The maximum amount of fresh food that can be frozen
within a 24 hour period is 8 kg.
• Do not attempt to freeze more than the maximum
amount.
• To freeze fresh food more quickly, switch on the super
freeze function a few hours prior to placing the food in
the freezer.
7
• Do not use the super freeze function more than once
in 72 hours. Use over the recommended time will place
unnecessary strain on the refrigeration system.
• Where possible, do not overload your fridge and freezer
compartments. This allows for air circulation around the
contents and keeping airways etc. as unobstructed as
possible will ensure optimum performance.
LED Lighting
If one or more of your appliance’s LED lights fails, please contact CDA
Customer Care to arrange a service visit. This appliance must only
be serviced by CDA authorised personnel. Contact details for CDA

Defrosting the fridge
The fridge is cooled by convection using cold air forced through
channels at the rear of the fridge. No defrosting is required. If you
notice ice on the back wall of the fridge then this could be due to a
number of factors including food items touching the back wall or an
ingress of warm air caused by a faulty door seal.
16
Defrosting the freezer
The freezer is frost free and as such is designed not to require
defrosting.
Care and cleaning
Always disconnect the appliance from the power before any
cleaning or maintenance.
•Leave spaces between food items wherever possible to allow air to
flow between them. Do not allow food items or containers to touch
the rear or side walls of the appliance.
•Avoid contact of oily or acidic foods with the rear and side walls.
Oils and acids can damage the liner material. If any such foods
come into contact with the walls, clean the spot with warm water
and bicarbonate of soda.
•The refrigerator and freezer sections should be cleaned using a
solution of bicarbonate of soda and lukewarm water. •Do not use abrasive products or detergents. After washing, rinse
and dry thoroughly.
•Clean the shelves and balconies separately by hand, using soap
and water. Do not put them in the dishwasher.
•Keep the door seals clean to avoid damage to them and to help to
ensure that they continue to function correctly.
•Once cleaning is complete, then reconnect the power.
•If the appliance is not used for prolonged periods of time, unplug
and clean it. The doors should be left slightly open to prevent the
formation of mildew or odours.

Troubleshooting
If you have any problems with your appliance, you should check
the troubleshooting prior to calling CDA Customer Care, to prevent
unnecessary service calls and potential cost. Contact details for CDA
Customer Care are on the rear cover of this manual.
If the appliance is not working, check the following;
•There is power to the appliance.
•The control panel is lit and is not locked/in standby mode (p11).
•The house fuses are intact and the fuse in the plug has not blown.
•The appliance is not in vacation mode.
•The plug socket is functioning correctly. To check this, plug another
electrical appliance in to see if the socket is working.
If the appliance is working, but not very well, check the following;
• The appliance is not overloaded.
• The temperature is set to an appropriate level.
• The doors are closing properly.
•The cooling system at the rear of the appliance is clean and free of
dust, and not touching the rear wall.
• There is enough ventilation at the side and rear walls (p22).
If there is water in the lower part of the refrigerator compartment,
check the following:
• There are no items touching the rear wall of the appliance. If there
are, adjust their position so that they no longer touch it.
• Check that there is some resistance when opening the door of the
appliance. If it opens at the slightest touch it may mean that the door seal needs to be replaced.
18
• Check the door seal for any kinks, debris or damage. If you notice
any, and are unable to resolve the issue yourself, contact CDA
Customer Care so that the seal can be replaced.
If ice has formed on the back wall of the fridge:
• It is normal for some ice droplets to form on the back wall of the
fridge. This does not constitute a fault with the appliance.
• Ensure that no items inside the fridge are in contact with the back
wall.
• Check that there is some resistance when opening the door of the
appliance. If it opens at the slightest touch it may mean that the
door seal needs to be replaced.
• Check the door seal for any kinks, debris or damage. If you notice
any, and are unable to resolve the issue yourself, contact CDA
Customer Care so that the seal can be replaced.
If the appliance is noisy, check the following;
•The appliance is level and stable.
•The side, underside and rear walls are clear, and there is nothing
resting on the appliance.
• It is normal to hear the compressor running. This will operate periodically and more so when the appliance doors are opened.
•The appliance may make what seem to be peculiar noises, even
when the compressor is not running. Details of the sorts of noise
you may hear are:
Cracking noise, similar to ice cracking - Normal noise that can occur
when the appliance is cooling or warming. Due to the expansion and
contraction of appliance materials.
19
Loud click - Normal noise and is usually the thermostat switching the
compressor on or off.
Ticking sound - Normal noise that is usually caused by the functions
of a valve at the back of the refrigerator.
Motor sound - Normal noise caused by the compressor running,
sometimes accompanied by a brief metallic rattle. This sound may be
more intense for the first seconds after the compressor starts. If the
metallic noise (i.e. metal hitting metal) is constant then it may be that a
compressor mount is loose. Contact the Customer Care Department
in this instance.
Bubbling noise - Normal noise caused by the movement of the
refrigerant within the appliance’s pipework.
Gentle whir and/or ‘mooing’ noise - Normal noise caused by the
internal fan(s) of the appliance and circulating air.
