The door shelves can also be rearranged to your
requirements.
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 larder compartment.
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.
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 often switch on unnecessarily.
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.
Do not store uncovered food.
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean, refer to cleaning and maintenance.
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.
Do not use detergents, abrasive powders,
highly perfumed cleaning products, wax
polishes or cleaning products containing
bleach or alcohol.
Clean the drain hole of the water trough at regular
intervals and ensure that the drain hole is clear at all
times. If blocked carefully clear using a piece of
flexible curtain wire inserted into the drain outlet to
remove the blockage.
Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to
ensure they are clean and free from debris.
8
External Cleaning
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water.
Do NOT use abrasive products.
There are sharp edges on the underside of
the product so care should be taken when
cleaning.
Once or twice a year dust the condenser (black grill)
and the compressor at the back of the appliance with
a brush or vacuum cleaner, as an accumulation of dust
will affect the performance of the appliance and cause
excessive electricity consumption.
Changing the Light Bulb
Should the light fail to work you can change it as
below:
Disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply.
Remove the lamp cover retaining screws, then take
the lamp cover off in the direction of the arrow and the
bulb can be changed. (Type of the bulb: 230 V, 15 W,
E 14 thread)
After changing the bulb replace the lamp cover, and
retaining screws and reconnect the appliance to the
electricity supply.
Defrosting Your Appliance
The fridge compartment is defrosted automatically,
when the motor stops. Defrost water from the cooling
plate runs out of the drain and onto a tray on the motor
compressor where it evaporates. Droplets of water on
the cooling plate during defrosting are quite normal
and will freeze on the plate afterwards.
When the appliance is not in use
When the appliance is not in use for long periods
disconnect from the electricity supply, empty all of the
food and clean the appliance, leaving the door ajar to
prevent unpleasant smells.
