Fridge Odour & Temperature
Q: Why does my fridge smell when the door is A: Check the deodoriser opened? Is it time to and the temperature renew the deodoriser? Is of the freezer. my fridge cold enough? Check The Deodoriser A deodoriser absorbs the smells that strong foods create. A number of Electrolux brand refrigerators come with a deodoriser situated in the food compartment (see diagram on the left), this works to reduce the air odour. A customer once said that the deodoriser did not work because when they opened the fridge door, there was no smell. This is perfect! A quick and easy fix to address any odours in the fridge is to place a cup of Bi‐
Carbonate Soda in the fridge. This will absorb some of the odours. Check The Fridge Temperature There are two ways to test this. One is to purchase a fridge thermometer or electronic tag. The freezer should read ‐18°C. The food compartment 2°C to Fridge Dial Thermo ‐30C to +30C Temperature Check. Part No. ACC036 5°C. Temperature readings near the door will always be higher. The other way to test the temperature is to place a tub of ice cream in the freezer. The next day, push a spoon into the tub of ice cream – if it is firm, then the freezer temperature is perfect, around ‐18°C. If the ice cream is soft, then the temperature is too warm, but if the ice cream is hard, then the temperature is too cold. Adjust your settings until the ice cream is firm. Don’t be fooled by your meat being frozen, as it only needs ‐ 2°C to freeze, which is not cold enough. If you have a frost‐free refrigerator, try not to place ice cream at the back of the freezer, as when it goes into defrost cycle the ice cream may warm up and then A variety of fridge deodorizers are available: freeze again which will cause the ice cream to crystallise.

If a few minutes after turning the dryer on, a burning smell is noticed, it is usually due to the lint filter being damaged, full, or not cleaned regularly and now the lint is touching the drying element. It is recommended that you clean the lint filter after every use to avoid build up and to replace the lint filter once a year. It is so important in stopping the lint from gathering around the dryer element. Regular cleaning of your dryer filter ensures your clothes are lint free and For Older Models: Foam Lint Filter MMX (2 Pack) Part No.D036 reduces the fire hazard which can be caused by built up lint.

Dryer Vent Kits
Q: How do I stop the moisture from running down my walls when I A: Fit a dryer vent kit! use the dryer? Allowing the moisture to stay inside the laundry not only causes condensation problems, it also increases the drying time! The best drying air is the same as outside when it is hot and dry. The dryer will make the room hot. It will also make it wet. Dryers take the air in from the room; this air passes over the element and through the clothes. The expelled air is very moist and at first cold. The Moist air may cause electrical components to fuse! Vent Kit Flexi Duct Part No.DVK006 By using a vent kit to take the moist air outside and leave the warmth in, the efficiency of the dryer is improved and you save money!

Washing Lint Filter
Q: Why is there lint on my clothes after the wash cycle is finished? A: Check the lint filter! Filter bags catch and hold lint. Unfortunately after a time they are not easy to clean. No matter how particular you are, the bag will not catch the lint as well as it did when the filter was new. To test the ability of the bag to catch lint, firstly we need to understand how it works. While the machine is agitating, the surface water is drawn down through the centre of the agitator and passed out from the bottom. Because lint floats on the surface, it is drawn down through the filter and when the filter is clean the lint is captured in the bag. Filter Bag Assy Hoover, Simpson and Westinghouse Top Loading Washers introduced since 2000 use the filter Part No. 0564257398 When unbroken fats and undiluted fabric softeners remain in the filter bag, the water holds in the bag allowing the lint to float, in turn less water is drawn down through the bag and so more lint stays in the wash bowl. The clothes being washed are moving around with their fabric softened and the pile is lifted. The floating lint passes through the loops of the fabric and will, in most cases, catch just as it should in the lint bag. We now come back to how to test the lint bag. Hold the bag under a running tap and when new, the water will run straight through the bag. When the bag needs replacing it will hold some water and in some cases fill up. For best results the bag should be replaced regularly. Electrolux Laundry Powder 1KG Front and Top loader concentrated washing detergent for super clean. Comes with a measuring cup inside.

Ice- Cubes
Q: Why do the ice cubes in my frost‐free A: Cover them and they freezer disappear? will last! Frost‐free refrigerators draw moist air back to a part that is called an evaporator, which is a very cold metal plate. This moist air becomes ice and the ice will melt from the cold plate when the refrigerator goes into what is called a defrost cycle. The water will flow into an evaporation tray outside the cabinet usually on top of the hot compressor. Therefore uncovered moist objects including food and ice cubes will be drawn to this cold plate and eventually disappear. To stop this, use one of the icemakers listed on the left, which will store made ice cubes and have new ones Ice Brick Assy forming at the same time.

When the power supply is stopped and the water keeps running. It is not your tap as a lot of people think; it is a part called an inlet water valve. The valve has a solenoid coil that when activated pulls a plunger away from a diaphragm, allowing the water to fill the machine.

The grease should Cannery Grease 75ml Jar Part No. 0211200011 be smeared onto the surfaces of the seal to prevent friction. The cannery grease is also used to lubricate the agitator, retaining ring and base felts on older model Simpson, Kelvinator and Malleys machines. The grease is water‐
soluble and will not affect the washing. 2‐Nulon L90 To lubricate the suspension rod pivot points on top suspended machines, use Nulon L90, Part No. 0211200021, which comes in a 125gm tube. The pivot points only need a smear to prevent the friction noise.

If the oven door needs to be opened when reading the thermometer, take a third reading at 60min. 8. The oven thermostat difference may read plus or minus 25°C. Before you phone for service, remember that once you know what your oven Oven Dial Thermo +10C +250°C Temperature Check Part No. ACC037 temperature actually is, unless the temperature is out by + or ‐ 25°C. Just set the oven thermostat to the plus or minus position and cook like a professional. It is always advisable to preheat the oven first! All ovens cook better after they have been on for over 60min. This allows the complete oven area to reach the set temperature. Have you ever cooked one fruit cake after the other? If so you would notice the second one is better! 20
