Installation Instructions
1. The space in the room where the
appliance is installed must not be
smaller than 10 cubic metres.
From Cookers 50 mm (2”)
From Radiators 300 mm (12”)
From Freezers 25 mm (1”)
2. This appliance has been designed
to operate in ambient temperatures up
to 32 degrees C (90 degrees F) and
is equipped with Advanced Electronic
Temperature Control System [AETCS]
which ensures that at the advised
setting [4 - four on the] the frozen food
in the freezer will not defrost even if the
ambient temperature falls as low as
-15 °C. So you may then install your
appliance in a garage or an unheated
room without having to worry about
frozen food in the freezer being spoilt.
However at low ambient temperatures
mentioned above, fridge contents are
likely to freeze, so check and consume
food in the fridge accordingly. When
the ambient temperature returns to
normal, you may change the setting to
suit your needs.
4. See pages 16 to 23 for detailed
Installation Instructions including
reversing door opening direction.
If the ambient temperature is
below 0°C, the food in the fridge
compartment will freeze. So, we
recommend you don’t use the fridge
compartment in such low ambient
conditions. You can continue using the
freezer compartment as usual.
3. Do not place the appliance near
cookers, radiators or in direct sunlight
as this will cause your appliance
to work less efficiently. If installed
next to a source of heat or freezer,
maintain the following minimum side
clearances:
10
5. Refer to cleaning and care section
to prepare your appliance for use.
6. A special receptacle is supplied to
store the mains plug during transit.
The receptacle is fixed at the back
of the cabinet, on the side of the
compressor.
(See diagram) Gently remove the plug
from the receptacle. Never pull the
mains cord, you may damage the
appliance. In the case of
transportation, ensure you locate the
plug in the receptacle provided to
avoid transit damage.
EN
Replacing The Interior Light
Bulb
Should the light fail to work, proceed
as follows.
1. Switch off at the socket outlet and
pull out the mains plug.
• You may find it useful to remove
shelves for easy access.
2. Use a flat tipped screwdriver to
remove the light diffuser cover by
inserting the blade in each of the two
recesses to prise off each side.
3. First check that the bulb hasn’t
worked loose by ensuring it is
screwed securely in the holder.
Replace the plug and switch on. If the
bulb works, replace the light cover by
inserting the rear lug and pushing up
to locate the front two lugs.
4. If the light still fails to work, switch off
at the socket outlet and pull out the
mains plug. Replace the bulb with a
new 15 watt (max) screw cap (SES)
bulb.
5. Carefully dispose of the burnt-out
light bulb immediately. Replacement

4 Before operating
Final Check
Before you start using the fridge/
freezer check that:
1. The feet have been adjusted for
perfect levelling.
2. The interior is dry and air can
circulate freely at the rear of the
cabinet.
3. Clean the interior as recommended
under “CLEANING AND CARE.”
4. Insert the plug into the wall socket
and switch on the electricity supply.
• When the door is open the fridge
interior light will come on.
5. You will hear a noise as the
compressor starts up. The liquid and
gases sealed within the refrigeration
system may also give rise to noise,
whether the compressor is running or
not which is quite normal.
“Due to operation of the fan inside
the frost free freezer compartment,
overall noise level is slightly higher
in comparison to non-frost free
appliances. This is quite normal and is
not a fault.”
6. Set the thermostat half way
between min and max.
7. Front edges of the cabinet may feel
warm. This is normal. These areas
are designed to be warm to avoid
condensation.
23
8. “Do not load the appliance
immediately it is switched on. Wait
until the correct storage temperature
has been reached. We recommend
that you check the temperature
with an accurate thermometer (see;
Temperature Control and Adjustment)”
9. When the freezer reaches the
desired temperature the freezer fan will
stop. When the freezer fan is on, the
noise will be louder when the freezer
door is opened.
10. Avoid spillage of food particularly
small items like rice, peas, beans
through the fan guard as they may
cause the cooling system to block and
therefore operate less efficiently.
EN
5 Using your refrigerator
Temperature Control And
Adjustment
Operating temperatures are controlled
by the thermostat control(see diagram)
located on the ceiling of fridge
compartment. Settings may be made
from min, 1 ... 6, max, max being the
coldest position.
When the appliance is switched on for
the first time, the setting thermostat
should be adjusted so that after 24
hours, the average fridge temperature
is no higher than +5°C (+41°F). We
recommend you set the thermostat
half way between the min and max
setting and monitor to obtain the
desired temperature i. e. towards
max you will obtain a colder fridge
temperature and vice versa. Some
sections of the fridge may be cooler or
warmer ( such as the salad crisper and
the top part of the cabinet ) which is
quite normal.
The normal storage temperature of the
freezer should be -18°C (0°F). Lower
temperatures may be obtained by
adjusting setting thermostat towards
max position.
24
We recommend that you check
the temperature with an accurate
thermometer to ensure that the
storage compartments are kept to the
desired temperature.
Remember you must take your reading
very quickly since the thermometer
temperature will rise very rapidly after
you remove it from the freezer.
Please remember each time the door
is opened cold air escapes and the
internal temperature rises. Therefore
never leave the door open and ensure
it is closed immediately after food is
put in or removed.
In case of a temporary ice build up in
the fridge compartment, reduce the
thermostat setting to 1, monitoring
at the same time that the fridge
temperature is maximum +5 degrees
C [41 degrees F]. Once the ice build
up disappears and the appliance
starts auto defrosting again as normal,
then you may increase the thermostat
setting, if required.
If the ambient (room or garage)
temperature is between 0 °C and -15
°C, we recommend you adjust the
setting 4 to reach -18 C in the freezer
compartment. Lower temperatures
may be obtained by adjusting setting
towards max position.
EN
Freezing Fresh Food
Storing Frozen Food
Prepacked commercially frozen food
should be stored in accordance
with the frozen food manufacturer’s
instructions for a
frozen food
storage compartment.
To ensure that the high quality
achieved by the frozen food
manufacturer and the food retailer is
maintained, the following should be
remembered:
1. Put packets in the freezer as quickly
as possible after purchase.
2. Ensure that contents are labelled
and dated.
3. Do not exceed “Use By”, “Best
Before” dates on the packaging.
If there is a power failure do not open
the door. Frozen food should not be
affected if the failure lasts for less than
13 hrs. If the failure is longer, then the
food should be checked and either
eaten immediately or cooked and then
re-frozen.
Please observe the following
instructions to obtain the best results.
Do not freeze too large a quantity at
any one time. The quality of the food
is best preserved when it is frozen
right through to the core as quickly as
possible.
Placing warm food into the freezer
compartment causes the refrigeration
compressor to operate continuously
until the food is frozen solid. This can
temporarily lead to excessive cooling
of the refrigeration compartment.
When freezing fresh food turn the
setting towards Max. small quantities
of food up to 1/2 kg. (1 lb) can be
frozen without having to rotate the
temperature control.
You may place fresh food to be frozen
in any part of the freezer.
Take special care not to mix already
frozen food and fresh food.
Making Ice Cubes
Fill the ice - cube tray 3/4 full with
water. Loosen frozen trays with the
handle of a spoon, never use sharp
edged objects such as knives, forks.
Note: If freshly made ice cubes are
not consumed for several weeks
and stored in Ice Bank, they will
slowly reduce in size and eventually
disappear completely.
25
EN
Defrosting
A) Fridge Compartment
The fridge compartment defrosts
automatically. The defrosting water
runs to the drain tube via a collection
container at the back of the appliance
(1). (see diagram) During defrosting
water droplets may form at the back
of the fridge compartment where
concealed evaporator is located.
Some droplets may remain on the
liner and refreeze when defrosting is
completed. Do not use pointed or
sharp edged objects such as knives,
forks to remove the droplets which
have frozen.
If at any time the defrost water does
not drain from the collection channel,
check to ensure that no food particles
have blocked the drain tube. The drain
tube can be cleared by pushing the
special plastic plunger provided down
the drain tube (2). If the frost layer
reaches about 1/4”(7 mm), reduce
the setting (i.e. from 4 to 1) to restart
automatic defrosting.
26
B) Freezer Compartment
The fan inside the freezer
compartment circulates cold air. Never
insert any object through the guard.
Do not allow children to play with
the freezer fan.
Never store products that contain
inflammable propellant gas (eg
dispensers, spray cans etc.) or
explosive substances.
Don’t cover the shelves with any
protective materials, which may
obstruct air circulation.
Do not allow children to play with the
appliance or tamper with the controls.
Do not obstruct the freezer fan guard
to ensure that you obtain the best
possible pefrorformancem your
