OPERATION
Before using
Remove all securing tapes. Wash inside the
appliance with lukewarm water and bicarbonate of
soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water).
Do not use soap or detergent as the smell may
linger. Dry thoroughly.
Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the refrigerator is regulated
by a thermostat with 6 temperature positions and an
“OFF” (O) position.
Position 1 = minimum coldness
Position 6 = maximum coldness
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
The intermediate position is usually the most
suitable (3-4).
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the
following factors:
– room temperature
– how often the door is opened
– how much food is stored
– position of the appliance
A
D710
A - Low Room Temperature Switch
The freezer compartment
The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for
storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing
fresh foods.
Freezing fresh food
When freezing large amounts of fresh food turn the
thermostat to maximum approximately 1 hour prior to
freezing.
When the food is frozen return to the normal
position.
In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 10 kg.
Important
During prolonged periods of abnormally hot weather,
if the thermostat is set on too high a number, the
cooling system may operate continuously and the
fridge cooling plate may not defrost. Turning the knob
to a lower number will cause the automatic
defrosting to resume.
Low Room Temperature Switch
To ensure that the appliance is working efficiently
when the room temperature drops below 16°C, the
switch mounted next to the thermostat control should
be switched on.
No damage can be caused by leaving the switch in
this position for any period of time (see page 10 Low
room temperature operation). However should the
temperature rise above 16°C remember to turn the
switch off again.
4
Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer of the
freezer as this is the coldest part.
Important
In the event of a power cut the food in the freezer will
not be affected if the power cut is short and if the
freezer is full. Do not open the door. Should the food
begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must
not be re-frozen .
Door reversal directions
1. Disconnect from the electricity supply.
2. Remove all loose items, including food, store food
in a cool place.

5. Remove bottom hinge (1).
Fresh food refrigeration
When you first start the freezer or if the freezer has
been out of use for some time, we advise you to
depress the ambient switch for at least two hours
before storing frozen food.
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
flavour.
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the
manufacturer.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
Finally, do not open the door frequently or leave it
open longer than is absolutely necessary.

Warning
6. Remove the freezer door by releasing it from the
middle hinge (H).
Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks etc.), in
the freezer compartment.
7. Unscrew the middle hinge.
Ice Iollies, if consumed immediately after removal
from the freezer, can cause low temperature skin
burns.

8. Slide out the fridge door from pin (G), unscrew
the latter and then screw it down into the hinge
provided on the opposite side, after having
removed the small plugs (I) which should then be
fitted on the opposite side.
Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands
are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or
“frost/freezer burns”.
9. Refit the fridge door and replace the middle hinge
to the left hand side.
Thawing
10.Replace the door and bottom hinge (1) on the
opposite side.
Deep frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can
be thawed in the fridge or at room temperature
depending on the time available. Small food items
may even be cooked from frozen; in this case
cooking will take longer.
11.Refit the feets (2-3) on the opposite side.
Attention
G
After completion of the door reversing operation,
check that the door gasket adheres to the cabinet. If
the ambient temperature is cold (i.e. in Winter), the
gasket may not fit perfectly to the cabinet. In that
case, wait for the natural fitting of the gasket or
accelerate this process by heating up the part
involved with a normal hairdryer on a cool setting.
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and
then refrozen.
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
I
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & wild fowl): wrap in
polythene bags and place on top of the salad
crispers.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad crispers.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
Normal Operating Sounds
•
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils
or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator or to the fixed freezer shelves.
•
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is
being pumped round, and you will hear a whirring
sound or pulsating noise from the compressor.
•
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you
will hear a faint ’click’ when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the
oven instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in
the oven.
I
I
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with two plastic ice cube
trays.
Fill the trays 3/4 full to allow the ice to expand and
place them in one of the freezer drawers.
To turn out the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight
twist to release the cubes.

ST
+18°C to + 38°C
T
+18°C to + 43°C
It should be located in a dry atmosphere, out of
direct sunlight and away from extreme temperature
e.g. not next to a boiler or radiator, or in a very cold
room e.g. an outhouse, where the temperatures may
fall below 10°C (50°F). If these temperatures are
exceeded i.e. colder or warmer, then the appliance
may not operate correctly.

D200
Adjust the level of the appliance by screwing out the
adjustable foot, or feet, at the bottom of the cabinet
using your fingers.
Rear spacers
The plastic bag containing all relevant
documentation also contains two spacers to be fitted
into special holes in the back of the appliance.
Fit the spacers into the holes, taking care to ensure
that the arrow (A) is positioned as shown in the
diagram. Then turn them through 45° (arrow (A)
vertical) until they lock into place.
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
•
Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do
NOT place in the refrigerator until cool. (Leave
food in a cool place in order that it can then be
placed in the refrigerator as soon as possible).
A
45°
Do NOT mix raw and cooked meat, they must be
in separate containers. Take care not to let the
meat juices drip onto other food. If the meat does
drip, remove everything and clean thoroughly.
•
Do not store food uncovered.
•
The best way to defrost food is to put it in the
refrigerator to thaw slowly.
•
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean (refer to “Maintenance and Cleaning).
•
Never allow spillages to dry and harden.
•
Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated
and labelled and used in date order to ensure
that food is consumed at its best.
•
It is important that food is used before its “best
before” date.
•
Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the
refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped
eggs.
•
Regularly check the refrigerator door seal to
ensure that it is clean and free from debris.
•
Always wash your hands with soapy water and
dry them with a clean towel before handling food.
•
Keep work surfaces clean and avoid cross
contamination by not using the same work
surface or knife, without washing them thoroughly
in between.
•
The fresh foods to be frozen must be fresh and of
the best quality.
•
The size of each pack should be small enough to
ensure that it is used in one go. Small packs
freeze more quickly and uniformly and give better
results.
NP00
You should also ensure that air can circulate freely
around the back and the top of the cabinet. There
must also be at least 100 mm (4”) distance between
the top of the cabinet and any overhanging kitchen
furniture (A). Ideally, the appliance should not be
positioned beneath overhanging furniture (B).
There should also be a gap of 25 mm either side of
the appliance. Do not obstruct the space
underneath. The back of the cabinet may be placed
close to the wall but must not touch it. DO NOT
install in places with restricted ventilation.
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as
possible.
•

The following table shows which ambient
temperature is correct for each climate classification:
SN
Because of consumer demand, preservatives have been removed from many pre-prepared foods. This
together with the changes in shopping habits to a once-a-week shop, mean that safe handling and
storage of food is even more important than ever.
•
Frozen food, once thawed, must not be refrozen.
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food,
salt reduces the storage time.
•
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal.
•
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.
•
Never place bottles or cans of fizzy drink in the
freezer as they may explode. Containers with a lid
must not be filled to the brim.
•
Do not open the door or place extra fresh food in
the freezer next to food which is already frozen as
this could cause the temperature of the frozen
food to rise and its quality and storage life to
reduce.
•
The symbols on the drawers show different types
of frozen goods.
The numbers indicate storage times in months for
the appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether
the upper or lower value of the indicated storage
time is valid depends on the quality of the foods
and pre-treating before freezing.

SOMETHING NOT WORKING
Important: If you call out an engineer to a fault listed below, or to repair a fault caused by incorrect use or
installation a charge will be made, even if the appliance is under guarantee.
Before contacting your local Service Force Centre, check the following points:
This is due to the air temperature within the refrigerator compartment being maintained at 6°C or under thus not
calling the thermostat to energise the compressor .
During a normal night time period of approximately 8 hours a traditional fridge freezer can normally maintain the
frozen food temperature but if the appliance is left for a longer period in a low ambient temperature the freezer
will defrost .
If, after the above checks, there is still a fault, call your local Service Force Centre.

SOMETHING NOT WORKING
Important: If you call out an engineer to a fault listed below, or to repair a fault caused by incorrect use or
installation a charge will be made, even if the appliance is under guarantee.
Before contacting your local Service Force Centre, check the following points:
This is due to the air temperature within the refrigerator compartment being maintained at 6°C or under thus not
calling the thermostat to energise the compressor .
During a normal night time period of approximately 8 hours a traditional fridge freezer can normally maintain the
frozen food temperature but if the appliance is left for a longer period in a low ambient temperature the freezer
will defrost .
If, after the above checks, there is still a fault, call your local Service Force Centre.
In-guarantee customers should ensure that the above checks have been made as the engineer will make a
charge if the fault is not a mechanical or electrical breakdown.

Fit the spacers into the holes, taking care to ensure
that the arrow (A) is positioned as shown in the
diagram. Then turn them through 45° (arrow (A)
vertical) until they lock into place.
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
•
Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do
NOT place in the refrigerator until cool. (Leave
food in a cool place in order that it can then be
placed in the refrigerator as soon as possible).
A
45°
Do NOT mix raw and cooked meat, they must be
in separate containers. Take care not to let the
meat juices drip onto other food. If the meat does
drip, remove everything and clean thoroughly.
•
Do not store food uncovered.
•
The best way to defrost food is to put it in the
refrigerator to thaw slowly.
•
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean (refer to “Maintenance and Cleaning).
•
Never allow spillages to dry and harden.
•
Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated
and labelled and used in date order to ensure
that food is consumed at its best.
•
It is important that food is used before its “best
before” date.
•
Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the
refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped
eggs.
•
Regularly check the refrigerator door seal to
ensure that it is clean and free from debris.
•
Always wash your hands with soapy water and
dry them with a clean towel before handling food.
•
Keep work surfaces clean and avoid cross
contamination by not using the same work
surface or knife, without washing them thoroughly
in between.
•
The fresh foods to be frozen must be fresh and of
the best quality.
•
The size of each pack should be small enough to
ensure that it is used in one go. Small packs
freeze more quickly and uniformly and give better
results.
NP00
You should also ensure that air can circulate freely
around the back and the top of the cabinet. There
must also be at least 100 mm (4”) distance between
the top of the cabinet and any overhanging kitchen
furniture (A). Ideally, the appliance should not be
positioned beneath overhanging furniture (B).
There should also be a gap of 25 mm either side of
the appliance. Do not obstruct the space
underneath. The back of the cabinet may be placed
close to the wall but must not touch it. DO NOT
install in places with restricted ventilation.
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as
possible.

The following tips should help you to ensure that the food in your home is in as perfect condition as
possible.
•
The following table shows which ambient
temperature is correct for each climate classification:
SN
Because of consumer demand, preservatives have been removed from many pre-prepared foods. This
together with the changes in shopping habits to a once-a-week shop, mean that safe handling and
storage of food is even more important than ever.
•
Frozen food, once thawed, must not be refrozen.
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food,
salt reduces the storage time.
•
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal.
•
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.
•
Never place bottles or cans of fizzy drink in the
freezer as they may explode. Containers with a lid
must not be filled to the brim.
•
Do not open the door or place extra fresh food in
the freezer next to food which is already frozen as
this could cause the temperature of the frozen
food to rise and its quality and storage life to
reduce.
•
The symbols on the drawers show different types
of frozen goods.
The numbers indicate storage times in months for
the appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether
the upper or lower value of the indicated storage
time is valid depends on the quality of the foods
and pre-treating before freezing.

cooking will take longer.
11.Refit the feets (2-3) on the opposite side.
Attention
G
After completion of the door reversing operation,
check that the door gasket adheres to the cabinet. If
the ambient temperature is cold (i.e. in Winter), the
gasket may not fit perfectly to the cabinet. In that
case, wait for the natural fitting of the gasket or
accelerate this process by heating up the part
involved with a normal hairdryer on a cool setting.
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and
then refrozen.
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
I
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & wild fowl): wrap in
polythene bags and place on top of the salad
crispers.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad crispers.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
Normal Operating Sounds
•
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils
or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator or to the fixed freezer shelves.
•
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is
being pumped round, and you will hear a whirring
sound or pulsating noise from the compressor.
•
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you
will hear a faint ’click’ when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the
oven instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in
the oven.
I
I
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with two plastic ice cube
trays.
Fill the trays 3/4 full to allow the ice to expand and
place them in one of the freezer drawers.
To turn out the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight
twist to release the cubes.

OPERATION
Before using
Remove all securing tapes. Wash inside the
appliance with lukewarm water and bicarbonate of
soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water).
Do not use soap or detergent as the smell may
linger. Dry thoroughly.
Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the refrigerator is regulated
by a thermostat with 6 temperature positions and an
“OFF” (O) position.
Position 1 = minimum coldness
Position 6 = maximum coldness
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
The intermediate position is usually the most
suitable (3-4).
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the
following factors:
– room temperature
– how often the door is opened
– how much food is stored
– position of the appliance
A
D710
A - Low Room Temperature Switch
The freezer compartment
The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for
storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing
fresh foods.
Freezing fresh food
When freezing large amounts of fresh food turn the
thermostat to maximum approximately 1 hour prior to
freezing.
When the food is frozen return to the normal
position.
In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 10 kg.
Important
During prolonged periods of abnormally hot weather,
if the thermostat is set on too high a number, the
cooling system may operate continuously and the
fridge cooling plate may not defrost. Turning the knob
to a lower number will cause the automatic
defrosting to resume.
Low Room Temperature Switch
To ensure that the appliance is working efficiently
when the room temperature drops below 16°C, the
switch mounted next to the thermostat control should
be switched on.
No damage can be caused by leaving the switch in
this position for any period of time (see page 10 Low
room temperature operation). However should the
temperature rise above 16°C remember to turn the
switch off again.
4
Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer of the
freezer as this is the coldest part.
Important
In the event of a power cut the food in the freezer will
not be affected if the power cut is short and if the
freezer is full. Do not open the door. Should the food
begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must
not be re-frozen .
