How to use the refrigerator
Sufficient air circulation is required for the proper
operation of this appliance. For this reason you are
asked not to cover the air circulation gaps behind the
shelves (e.g. with tray etc.).
Do not put hot food into the refrigerator. Allow
it to reach room temperature naturally. In this
way unnecessary frost building up can be avoided.
Food odours can be transferable, so it is
essential to put foods in closed dishes or wrap
them in cellophane, aluminium foil, grease-proof
paper or cling film before placing them into the
refrigerator. This way foods will keep their moisture
e.g. vegetables will not dry out after some days.
Using the Appliance
Putting it into use
Place the accessories into the appliance then plug into the
mains socket.
Press the "A" button. The backlight of the display turns on.
The appliance is ready to use.
By pressing the "A" button again the appliance will turn off,
but still under voltage.
Controlling the temperature, setting
The thermostats interrupt the cooling automatically for more
or less time depending on the setting then restarts it
assuring the required temperature.
The temperature of the refrigerator and freezer can be set
by turning knobs "F" and "B", respectively. The selected
temperature is seen blinking on the display.
For everyday use medium setting, i.e. +5°C in the
refrigerator and colder than -18°C is the freezer is
recommended.
Allow the appliance to run for a period of 24 hours
whenever the temperature setting is changed. This will
allow the temperature to stabilise inside the appliance.
The temperature in the refrigerator is affected by not only
the position of the thermostat but the ambient temperature,
frequency of door openings and the quantity of food put into
it etc.
When the coldest temperature possible is set - in
case of increased demand e.g. during heatwaves
- the compressor may operate continually. This does
not cause damages to the appliance.
7
Drawer
The drawer is suitable for storing fruit and vegetables.
There is a separator inside the drawer that can be placed in
different positions to allow you to separate food if required.
Shopping mode
Before putting large amounts of food into the refrigerator
(e.g. when returning from shopping) press the function
selection button once or twice as required to activate the
shopping mode (the shopping mode symbol shown on the
display). In this mode, the refrigerator reaches its lowest
possible temperature to cool down the large amount of
food.
To exit from shopping mode press the function selection
button again. Should you not do so, after a while the
refrigerator returns to automatic mode.
The Refrigerator
Below is the recommended storage positions for various
food types:
1. Ready-cooked foods, fresh meat, cold cuts.
2. Milk, dairy products.
3. Fruits, vegetables, salads.
4. Cheese, butter.
5. Eggs.
6. Yoghurt, sour cream.
7. Small bottles, drinks.
8. Large bottles, drinks.
Storage Shelves
The shelves in the refrigerator compartment are adjustable
to allow for the storage of large items.
To re-arrange the shelves, open the door to 90°.
Storage Times
The storage chart at the end of the instruction book gives
information on storage times in the refrigerator
compartment. The storage times quoted are intended as a
guide only.
Do not cover the shelves with paper or trays etc. as this
will affect the air circulation within the refrigerator
compartment.
Do not put hot foods in the refrigerator, allow hot foods
to reach room temperature naturally before placing in the
refrigerator.
Cover foods, or place in closed dishes before placing
them in the refrigerator, this prevents any transference of
food smells.
8
The Freezer
Freezing fresh food
The appliance can be used to freeze fresh food in the
quantity specified on the rating plate. Freezing fresh food
should always be done after proper preparing as follows.
Press the function selection button once or twice as
required to obtain super freezing mode (the super freezing
mode symbol shown on the display).
Put the previously frozen food to another basket or baskets.
Put the fresh food into the lower basket, leaving enough
space for airflow.
Run the appliance this way for 24 hours.
To exit from super freezing mode press the function
selection button again. Should you not do so, after a while
the freezer returns to automatic mode.
Never freeze food in larger quantities than
shown in the "Technical data" at the same
time, otherwise food may not be thoroughly
frozen.
Do not make ice during freezing preferably, because
making ice reduces freezing capacity.
The freezing tray is suitable for freezing smaller fruits
(raspberry, strawberry, currant, etc.). Fruits should be
put in the tray in thin layers without packaging. After freezing
they can be packed and sorted out then placed into the
storing compartments.
Frozen Food Storage
When turning on the freezer for the first time or if the
freezer has been out of use for some time, we advise you to
run your appliance for at least 2 hours before storing frozen
food.
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the
manufacturer.
Do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than
is necessary.
You can put frozen products into the basket(s)after freezing
has finished. This will enable you to make room in the
freezing compartment for other food. Intermediate freezing
does not deteriorate foods already stored.
If large quantities of food are to be stored, remove the
baskets except the lowest one from appliance and place
food on the shelves.
Important
Do not put carbonated liquids in the freezer.
Ice lollies, if consumed immediately after removal from
the freezer can cause a low temperature skin burn.
In the event of a power cut the food in the freezer will not
be affected if the power cut is short and 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.
(See Hints and Tips)
Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands are
damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or
frost/freezer burns.
9
Removal of freezing baskets from
the freezer
The freezing baskets have a limit stop to prevent their
accidental removal or falling out. To remove the basket
from the freezer, pull the basket towards yourself and,
upon reaching the end point, remove the basket by
tilting its front upwards.
To put it back, slightly lift the front of the basket to
insert it into the freezer. Once you are over the end
points, push the baskets back in their position.
Thawing
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.
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.
Defrosted cooked food must never be
refrozen.
)To Make Ice Cubes
1. Fill the ice cube tray ¾ full with cold water, place in
the freezing compartment and leave to freeze.
2. To remove the cubes twist the tray or hold it under
running water for a few seconds.
Never try to free an ice tray that is frozen to
the freezer compartment by using pointed or
sharp edged objects.
10
Hints & T ips
Normal Operating Sounds
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils or
tubing.
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.
Food Storage
To obtain the best performance from your freezer:
Do not store warm food or evaporating liquid.
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it
straight away. The use of an insulated container is
advisable. When you arrive home, place the frozen
food in the freezer immediately.
Do not push food together too much, try to allow air
to circulate around each item.
Do not store food uncovered.
Energy Saving Advice
Do not install the appliance close to sources of
heat, such as a boiler or radiator.
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
appliance are not obstructed.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages
before placing them in the freezer.
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should
be placed in the fridge before being transferred
to the freezer.
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.
In the Event of a Power Failure
If there is a power failure during the storage of
frozen foods, keep the door closed. If the
temperature within your freezer should rise, do not
refreeze the food without checking its condition.
The following guidelines should assist you:
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.
Ice Cream: Once thawed should be discarded.
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food,
salt reduces the storage time.
Breads & Cakes: Can be refrozen without danger.
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 by the
manufacturer.
Fruits & Vegetables: If soft should be cooked and
used up.
Shellfish: Should be refrigerated and used up
quickly.
Cooked Dishes: i.e. casseroles should be
refrigerated and used up.
Large Pieces of Meat: Can be refrozen providing
there are still ice crystals remaining within them.
Small Joints: Should be cooked and can then be
refrozen as cooked dishes.
Chicken: Should also be cooked and refrozen as a
fresh dish.
11
Maint enance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance or cleaning is
carried out you must 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.
Once or twice a year dust the condenser (black grille)
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.
When the Appliance is not in Use
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.
Defrosting
Bleeding part of the moisture of cooling chambers in
form of frost and ice goes with the operation of the
appliance.
Thick frost and ice has an insulating effect, so it
reduces cooling efficiency as the temperetaure
increases in the cooling chambers, they need more
energy.
This appliance automatically defrosts the cooling
surface of the refrigerator without any external
intervention. The termostatic control interrupts the
operation of compressor at regular intervals for more
or less time - during this cooling is interrupted - the
temperature of the cooling surface goes above 0°C
due to interior heating load of the compartment, so
defrosting occurs. When the surface temperature of
the cooling surface has reached +3 - +4°C the
thermostatic control restarts operation of the system.
12
When the ice melts, the water flows through the
defrost water outlet through the back into the
evaporator tray which sits on the top of the
compressor and evaporates due to its warmth.
Check and clean the defrost water outlet
regularly - a label inside the appliance
warns you for this. If it is blocked the water
gathered can cause damage to the insulation of
the appliance.
Clean the defrost water outlet with the supplied pipe
scraper that can be seen in the figure. The pipe
scraper has to be stored in the outlet.
Extra care should be taken when putting wrapped
foods, especially in paper, in the appliance.
Blockages to the defrost water outlet often occurs
when wrapped foods are placed in the back of the
refrigerator, and the wrapping contacts the back plate
of the fridge and sticks to it.
In case of increased demand e. g. during
heatwawes, the refrigerator temporarily happens
to operate constantly - during this the automatic
defrosting does not work.
Remaining small ice and frost stains on back plate of
the refrigerator after the defrosting period is normal.
Defrosting of the freezer is automatic in this model.
Important
A temperature rise of the frozen food packs during
defrosting may shorten their safe storage life.
Never use sharp metal tools to scrape off frost from
the evaporator as this could damage the appliance
beyond repair.
) To Change the Light Bulb
Should the light fail to work you can change it as below:
Break the circuit of the appliance.
Unscrew the screw holding the cover (1), press the
rear hook (2) and at the same time slide the cover in
the direction indicated by arrow (3). So the bulb can be
replaced. (Bulb type: 230-240 V, 15 W, E 14 thread)
After changing the bulb replace the cover, snap it in
place, screw back the screw and apply voltage to the
appliance
