The Ice-making Compartment
This compartment is suitable for the storing of
commercially frozen food and for making and storing
ice cubes.
Hints & Tips
Food Storage
To obtain the best results from your appliance
neither hot foods nor liquids which may evaporate,
should be placed in the refrigerator.
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your fridge as short as possible.
Do not push food together too much, try to allow air
to circulate around each item.
Do not store food uncovered.
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean, refer to Cleaning and Maintenance.
Frozen food storage
Storing ready-frozen foods is quite straightforward.
The packs can be placed beside each other or on top
of each other.
You are strongly advised to place ready-frozen food in
the compartment as quickly as possible after
purchase and we therefore recommend that you buy
them last. Also ensure that the external packaging is
intact.
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of
refrozen water droplets on the pack could indicate
that the product has not been kept at a suitable
temperature and that it may have lost its original
quality.
Partially thawed food must not be refrozen, it must
be consumed within 24 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated.
Do not open the ice-making compartment door too
often and do not leave open longer than necessary.
Important
In the event of a power cut the food in the icemaking compartment will not be affected if the
power cut is short and if the compartment is full. Do
not open the door. Should the food begin to thaw,
it must be consumed quickly and must not be
refrozen.
Energy Saving Advice
Do not install the cabinet close to sources of
heat, such as a cooker, dishwasher or radiator.
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
cabinet are not obstructed.
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge.
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods, or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet, and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the
door from closing properly.
It is advisable to periodically clean the
refrigeration system at the back of the appliance
with a duster or vacuum cleaner.

Maint enance & Cleaning
Before any maintenance of cleaning work is
carried out DISCONNECT the appliance from
the ELECTRICITY SUPPLY.
Internal Cleaning
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water and
bicarbonate of soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water). Rinse
and dry thoroughly.
NEVER use detergents, abrasive powders,
highly perfumed cleaning products or wax
polishes to clean the interior as these will
damage the surface and leave a strong
odour.
External Cleaning
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water.
When the appliance is not in use
Defrosting
While the appliance is in operation the ice-making
compartment becomes progressively covered with
frost.
This frost, acts as an insulator and prevents the
cold from reaching the insulator food. The frost
should be removed whenever the thickness of the
frost exceeds 6 mm (¼”). To carry out complete
defrosting proceed as follows.
Pull out the plug from the wall socket or turn the
thermostat control knob to the „0” position.
Leave the fridge and ice-making compartment
doors open, when defrosting is completed, dry the
appliance thoroughly. Remove any defrost water
collected in the tray.
Replace the plug in the socket or return the
thermostat to the initial position and, after letting
the appliance run for at least an hour, place the
food in the refrigerator.
When the appliance is not in use for long periods,
disconnect from the electricity supply, empty all foods
and clean the appliance, leaving the door open to
prevent unpleasant smells.
