FEATURES
general installation
When correctly installed, your refrigerator should:
• Have adequate clearance to the back, sides and
top for air circulation
• Be aligned to the surrounding cupboards
• Have doors that will self close from a partially
open position
Installation
The refrigerator should arrive with the front rollers wound
down. We recommend that the appliance be tilted
backwards by about 10 to 15 millimetres, this will allow
the doors to self close providing a consistent door seal.
To do this follow the instructions below.
10 -15mm
Clearances AROUND YOUR REFRIGERATOR
Your Side by Side refrigerator can be installed between
cupboards or fixtures but you must allow for the following
spaces around the cabinet.
• Allow a minimum of 5 millimetres clearance on both
sides (see diagram 1)
• Allow a minimum of 10 millimetres clearance above
hinge covers (see diagram 1)
• Allow 10 millimetres clearance at the back of the
refrigerator (see diagram 1)

When you want to install your appliance, take the
following steps.
1. Roll the refrigerator into it’s final position.
WARNING
The rollers are designed for forward or backward movement
only. They are not castors. Moving the refrigerator sideways
may damage your floor and the rollers.
2. If the refrigerator is not tilted back you can adjust the
two front rollers by adjusting the large plastic roller
nut (refer page 7). You may need two people, one to
adjust rollers and one to tilt the refrigerator slightly back
to take the weight of the appliance off the front rollers.
This will increase or decrease the height of the rollers.
One turn of the nut will change the tilt of the refrigerator
by approximately 10mm.
3.If the cabinet is level, then the side walls should be plumb
or vertical. If the cabinet is built in or partly built in check
the alignment of the cabinet side against the cupboard.

Adjust front rollers for
unevenness of floor. e.g.
adjust this roller down.
Packing may be required
underneath the rear roller
to ensure stability.
4.If the appliance now rocks from one corner to the
opposite rear corner, this means that the floor is uneven;
you will need to put some packing under one of the
rear rollers.
5.You may now need to fine-tune the installation by
adjusting the front rollers once again.
adjusting door alignment
Each door is independently adjustable in the vertical
direction by turning the adjustable bolts under the hinges
using the spanner provided.

The doors can be adjusted up or down. Depending on the
amount of adjustment required it may be sufficient to adjust
only one door (see diagrams below).
NOTE: When the height of the rollers and adjusting bolts
are correctly adjusted the refrigerator will stand firmly on the
floor and the doors will be in line with one another.

INSTALLATION
general installation
Internal packaging
1.Please remove all internal packaging material before use.
Any glue or tape residue or the like should be removed
with a solution of mild detergent and water.
2.Clean your appliance thoroughly following the instructions
on page 19 and wipe off any dust that has accumulated
during shipping.
3. If the refrigerator is required to be pulled forward for
cleaning, the water pipe may need to be removed
from the tap.
WARNING
Before cleaning: Remove the power cord from the power
socket. This will make sure there is no chance of getting
an electric shock.
3.Install accessories such as the ice cube storage bin.
The accessories are packed together to prevent damage
during delivery.
4.Plug your appliance into the power point.
5.We recommend that you let your refrigerator run for two
to three hours before you put any food in it. This will
allow you to check that it is operating properly and that
enough cool air is circulating.
Ice maker start up
If the ice maker is not connected to a water supply,
check that the ice maker is turned off. To do this remove
the ice cream shelf and put the switch in the ‘OFF’ position.
If you don’t do this a loud buzzing noise will be heard
intermittently if the icemaker is on but no water is being
supplied. If the ice maker is connected to a water supply,
check that the ice maker is turned on. To do this put the
switch in the ‘ON’ position.
Ice and water models
CAUTION
ice cream shelf
The water connection to your ice and water product
should only be done by a licensed refrigeration mechanic,
plumber or electrician.
All relevant information regarding the water connection is
detailed in the water kit provided with your product for use
by the professional installer only.
The automatic ice and water dispenser needs a drinkable
water supply with a pressure of:
• Minimum 206 kPa (30 psi, 2.11 kgf/cm²)
• Maximum 689 kPa (100 psi, 7.04 kgf/cm²)
In some areas water pressure is significantly higher due to
local conditions. In such areas a pressure reducing valve
must be used. Ensure your plumber or installer checks your
water pressure when installing your refrigerator.
If you are using your refrigerator for the first time, or if you
have not used the dispenser for some time:
• Discard the first seven or eight cups of water
• Discard any ice that the ice maker produces in the
first 24 hours (contaminants could have settled in the
water pipes)
It is not recommended that the tubing be extended as this
can adversely affect the flow of water to the ice maker or
water dispenser, however, some points to note are:
1.It is better to have the tap accessible without having
to roll the refrigerator forward, so we recommend
putting it outside the cavity as shown by the taps
in the diagram below.
2. It is recommended, but not essential that the height
of the tap should be 400mm from the ground.

WARNING
Connect to potable water supply only. Do not use the ice chute
as a handle when removing or replacing the ice storage bin.
Do not put fingers up the ice chute. Surfaces there may be sharp.
initial start-up
Refrigerator/freezer operation
It is normal for the rear, sides and centre mullion of the
appliance to feel warm. These areas are warm because
the appliance transfers heat from the food placed inside
to the outside air.
There is a cooling coil located behind the rear wall of
the freezer section. This coil cools and removes moisture
from the air. A fan at the rear of the freezer section then
circulates cold, dry air throughout the refrigerator. The air
circulation means that foods are refrigerated far more quickly
than in refrigerators where there is less air circulation. Avoid
placing food against air outlets as this will affect air circulation.
A light frosting will occasionally occur on the interior of the
freezer when the door is opened frequently. This is normal
and will disappear after a few days in most climates.
Make sure you fully close the freezer door after you load
or remove food. If the door is left partly open, a heavy
frost will coat the inside of the freezer. If a frost develops,
remove it. Take care to properly close the door and the
frost will not reoccur.
Your new energy efficient appliance uses a high-speed
compressor and other energy efficient components which
may produce different noises to your old appliance.
These sounds are normal and include:
• Compressor running noise.
• Air movement noise from the small fan motor.
• Occasional gurgling, similar to water boiling.
• A popping noise, heard during automatic defrosting.
• A clicking noise, just prior to the compressor starting up.
• A motorised air baffle used to adjust airflow.
These noises are normal and not cause for alarm.
temperature SENSORS
Avoid loading food against your freezer temperature sensor.
Doing so may adversely affect freezer temperatures. If warm
food is inadvertently loaded against the sensor, it may also
set off the freezer temperature alarm up to 50 minutes after
the food is loaded against the sensor.
NOTE: Product illustrations demonstrate features that
may not be completely in line with all current products.

We recommend that when you start your refrigerator for
the first time, the temperature for the refrigerator is set to
3°C and the freezer to -18°C. If you want to change the
temperatures, use the instructions below. You should make
only small adjustments and wait 24 hours to see whether
further changes are required.
NOTE: The set temperature for the refrigerator is an
average temperature for the whole refrigerator cabinet.
Temperatures inside each compartment may vary
depending on how much food you store and where you
place it. High or low room temperature may also affect
the actual temperature inside the refrigerator.

Energy efficiency
Your appliance has been designed with energy efficiency
in mind and can operate in any of three modes (normal,
eco, vacation), depending on the level of efficiency sought.
• Normal mode
This is the mode which is entered automatically when the
appliance is first turned on. Normal mode is the mode
most suitable when the refrigerator door is opened often.
•Eco mode
Eco mode is a more efficient mode than normal mode
and can be entered in two ways. Either by manually
pressing the eco/vacation button once when in normal
mode, or automatically after 30 hours if the refrigerator
door has not been opened. The leaf icon will appear
on the electronic display when eco mode is activated.
If eco mode is entered automatically, the appliance
will revert to normal mode once the refrigerator door
is opened. If eco mode is entered manually, door
openings will not cause the display to revert to normal
mode. To exit eco mode, press the eco/vacation
button twice (or until there are no icons displayed).
CAUTION
Eco mode is designed to operate with minimum door
opening (e.g. if used as a long term storage fridge).
If turned on manually, it won’t switch off automatically and
frequent door opening in eco mode could lead to food
spoilage. If frequent door opening is likely to occur switch
back to normal mode.
• Vacation (holiday) mode
Vacation mode is suitable if you will be away from your
appliance for an extended period. To take advantage
of maximum efficiency press the eco/vacation button
twice in succession just before you leave – do this
while in normal mode. The appliance will then enter
vacation mode, as indicated by the aeroplane symbol.
Press eco/vacation button again to cycle between
‘normal’, ‘eco’ and ‘vacation’ modes. If in eco mode
a single button press is all that is required to enter
vacation mode.
Vacation mode is exited automatically once the
refrigerator door is opened and normal mode resumes.
ENVIRONMENTAL TIPS
Eco and vacation modes minimise defrosting to save
energy, while maintaining your temperature settings.
NOTE: Opening the freezer door has no effect on the
operation of Eco and Vacation Modes
Other electronic features
Your refrigerator:
• Controls the compressor and fan independently
to provide the best performance
• Provides extra cooling depending on the number

Ice & water features*
Twist ice & Serve
To use, remove the tray, fill with water and place back in
the freezer. Once ice has formed (approximately 3 hours)
simply twist the knob at the front clockwise until the ice
drops into the bin below.
Ice & water dispenser features
The ice and water dispenser conveniently dispenses cool,
filtered water and ice cubes or crushed ice. To operate the
ice dispenser, select an ice option using the electronic display.
To operate the water dispenser, press a glass against the
dispensing paddle. To stop dispensing water, pull the glass
away from the dispensing paddle. A drip tray located at
the base of the dispenser (see diagram above) will catch
small spills and allow them to evaporate. The drip tray is
removable and dishwasher safe.
CAUTION
Do not pour water or excess cubes into the drip tray
because it is not connected to a drain.
Dispenser lamp
The dispenser has a light which can be turned on and off
by pressing the Lamp button on the electronic display (see
diagram below). The lamp is also activated for 6 seconds
whenever a dispensing paddle is pressed. The light comes
from 6 ultra bright LEDs (light emitting diodes), which are
part of the electronic display. These are not customer
replaceable. The same technology is used in the interior
multiflow duct (blue strip lights).
How the water dispenser works
After the refrigerator is connected to the water supply,
fill the water tank by holding a glass against the dispenser
paddle. You may need to hold the glass against the paddle
for up to 2 minutes before water begins to flow. Continue
to draw water for a further 3 minutes to rid the tank and
plumbing connections of any impurities, the tank will
automatically refill as you dispense water.
CAUTION
Remember, do not drink this water as it may have impurities in it!
TIPS & INFORMATION
Press a glass against the dispensing paddle. Hold the top
of the glass as close as possible to the ice outlet, so that
you will catch all the ice. To stop dispensing ice, pull the
glass away from the dispensing paddle. Do not remove the
glass until the ice has finished coming out.
The water connection to your ice and water product
should only be done by a licensed refrigeration mechanic,
plumber or electrician.
The water dispenser water tank is located behind the
upper crisper bin in the refrigerator compartment.

USING YOUR
APPLIANCE
Normal Operation — For cool water, add ice.
To provide the convenience of filtered water in the same
location as the ice dispenser, it is necessary to route the
tubes from the refrigerator compartment. This means the first
half glass of water will not be quite as cold as the following
3 or 4 glasses. If you require cool water from the first glass,
we recommend that you first add crushed or cubed ice to
your glass then the water. In times of high use, water may
be dispensed before it has time to cool. Once this occurs,
the dispensed water temperature will be similar to that of
your normal tap water until the tank has had a chance to
re-cool. The addition of cubed or crushed ice will allow
you to still enjoy cool water should this occur.
CAUTION
Chemicals from a malfunctioning softener can damage
the ice maker. If the ice maker is connected to soft water,
ensure that the softener is maintained and working properly.
How the ice dispenser works
The ice maker and ice container are located in the top of
the freezer compartment. After the refrigerator is installed
properly and has cooled for several hours, the ice maker
can begin making ice and the first batch will be ready
within 24 hours. A full tray of ice may not be created for
the first few batches, due to air in the refrigerator’s new
plumbing lines. To begin ice production, switch the switch
to the ON position. If no ice is dispensed it will take about
2 days to fill the storage container. The ice maker turns
off automatically when the ice container is full. To stop
ice production, turn the switch to the OFF position (see
diagram on page 8). The first batches of ice cubes may be
discoloured or have an odd flavour, due to the refrigerator’s
new plumbing connections. Discard this ice until batches
are free of discolouration or taste problems.

AUTOMATIC DISPENSER
16
TIPS & INFORMATION
• Ice cubes stored too long may develop an odd flavour.
Remove the ice container and discard the ice cubes.
When replacing the tray, ensure that the wire signal
arm (see diagram below left) sits within the ice cube
container. The ice maker will then start producing ice.
• Occasionally shake the ice container to keep
ice separated.
• After you take delivery of the refrigerator, keep the ice
maker switch in the OFF position until the refrigerator is
connected to the water supply. The switch should also
be kept in the OFF position whenever the water supply
is turned off.
CAUTION
If the dispensing paddle is pushed for more than 4 minutes,
the dispenser motor may overload and stop. The overload
protector will reset automatically after 3 or 4 minutes.
• If a large quantity of ice is needed at one time, it is best
to remove cubes directly from the ice cube container
• When the ice maker is operating, it is normal to hear
the sound of:
– The motor running.
– Ice dropping into the ice container.
– The water valve opening or closing.
– Ice loosening in the tray.
– Running water.
Cleaning the ice dispenser
Clean the dispenser and ice container at regular intervals,
particularly before you take a vacation or move, also clean
the dispenser if it sticks.
To clean the dispenser:
1.Switch the ice maker off by putting the wire signal arm
in the horizontal position.
2. Remove the ice container by lifting it up and out.
Empty and carefully clean the container with mild
detergent. Rinse carefully ensuring no traces of
detergent remain. Do not use harsh or abrasive
cleaners. Allow the ice container to dry completely
before replacing it in the freezer.
3. Remove ice chips from the shelf and chute that support
the ice container; clean these areas.
4. Replace the ice container.
5. Turn the ice maker on by moving the wire signal arm.
WARNING
Do not use the ice chute as a handle when removing or
replacing the ice storage bin. Do not put fingers up the
ice chute. Surfaces there may be sharp.
Remove and empty the ice storage bin if:
1. An extended power failure (one hour or longer) causes
ice cubes in the ice storage bin to melt and freeze
together and jam the dispenser mechanism.
2. If the ice dispenser is not used frequently, ice cubes
will freeze together in the bin and jam the dispenser
mechanism. If this happens remove the ice storage bin
and shake it to loosen the cubes.
CAUTION
EVER use an ice pick or similar sharp instrument to break
N
up the ice. This could damage the ice storage bin and
dispenser mechanism.
Other electronic features of your standard and Ice & water refrigerator

DATE FITTED___/___/___
4 + 1 metres of water tubing
1 x 1/2” tap fitting
Before beginning Installation
please read:
Water Supply and Plumbing
A drinkable water supply to suit a ½” tap fitting is required
adjacent to the refrigerator. It is recommended that a
licensed plumber install a new water supply outlet nearer
to the appliance should the tubing supplied not be long
enough. It is not recommended that the tubing be extended
as this could adversely affect the flow of water to the ice
maker or water dispenser. This will reduce water hammer
and its effects from quick action household taps and fast
acting valves on appliances.
Where the tap connection is other than 1/2”, adapters
can be purchased from plumbing supply stores or good
hardware stores.
Water Filter
Locate the water filter within 1 metre from the water supply
tap, in a vertical position where possible. The filter will need
to be replaced every 12 months to prevent excess filtered
micro-organism build-up, and thus ensure continuous purified
water and ice supply for you and your family. Replacement
water filters are available from Electrolux Home Products
Spare Parts Centres and can be posted to you for your
convenience (refer to back page for contact details).
2 x circlips
The filter is designed to significantly reduce chlorine, taste,
odour, heavy metals, turbidity (cloudiness) and scale build
up. The included plastic water tube allows quick connection
to the filter and is designed for high durability and kink
resistance.
This filter is designed only to be used with a potable
water supply. It should not be used on water that is micro
biologically unsafe or with water of unknown quality. The
filter should be replaced every 12 months. The service life
of the filter may be reduced in water supplies that contain
an excess of particles or other impurities. Reduced flow
rate is an indication that a new filter is required. Failure to
replace the filter when required can affect the function of
the ice maker. Service calls caused by a failure to replace
the filter are not covered by warranty.
The water connection to your ice and water product can be
self-installed. It is recommended that you seek advice from
a licensed plumber (if necessary) before commencing the
installation.
Your warranty may be voided by an incorrect installation
INSTALLATION

TIPS AND USEFUL INFORMATION
Ensure that taps are turned off when replacing and fitting
filters. Remember to turn the taps back on when filter fitting
is complete.
Ensure that the water pressure has been checked prior
to installation as high or low water pressure can cause
problems with the Ice & Water dispenser. Water pressure
problems can be easily rectified by your qualified installer.
Always fit filter as per manufacturer’s instructions, paying
special attention to water flow direction.
If you need to replace water tube, only use approved water
quality piping that meets the pressure requirements.
Do not allow the water tubing to become kinked
or wrapped under the refrigerator when moving the
refrigerator back into position.
Make sure your refrigerator is level to avoid uneven
ice cubes.
After installation, run the water dispenser for a few minutes to
ensure that all air bubbles have been purged from the tubing.
Dripping may occur if air bubbles remain in the tube.
Replace filter at suggested intervals to avoid water/ice
reduction and irregularities in taste.
Remove and clean ice bin once a month, discarding
unused ice cubes. This will ensure fresh, clean ice and
smooth operation of your ice maker.
Clean and empty the dispenser drip tray regularly to
avoid overflow.
As the water/ice cut off is not instant, leave glass under
dispenser briefly until water or ice has stopped flowing to
avoid spills.
Always place ice in glass before filling with water to
avoid splashing.

Energy consumption (electricity costs)
The following guide will help you reduce the running cost
of your new refrigerator. This will save you money and help
conserve our valuable energy resources.
• If you keep your old refrigerator, save power by
switching it off when not in use.
• Do not set your freezer temperature too low. After 24 hours,
ice cream should be firm but able to be scooped out
with a spoon without bending the handle. If ice cream
is firmer than this (or too soft), adjust the freezer temperature
controls (see ‘Adjusting Temperatures’, page 11).
• Ensure that the refrigerator doors seal properly as you
close them.
• Before you open the refrigerator doors, decide what
you want to put in or take out. This will minimize the
time you have the doors open.
• It is best to have the refrigerator in a place that is out
of direct sunlight and away from heating appliances
of any kind. For example, do not place the refrigerator
next to a cooker, stove or dishwasher.
• Allow hot foods to cool to room temperature before you
put them in your freezer.
• Thaw frozen food in the refrigerator section.
• If you keep the freezer compartment filled to capacity,
your food mass will help maintain the freezer
temperature when you open the door.
• Do not block air vents. Doing so may cause the
refrigerator to run longer and use more energy.
1. Push down
2. Slide out
Cleaning the interior
You should clean the refrigerator interior regularly. It will
be easiest to clean when the food supply is low. Wash
the interior with a soft cloth and use an unscented mild
soap with lukewarm water. Thoroughly dry all surfaces
and removable parts. Avoid getting water on refrigerator
controls. If you have taken out any removable parts,
replace them and switch the power on before restocking
the refrigerator with food. You should keep the interior
of your refrigerator hygienic by promptly and thoroughly
wiping up any food spills.
Keep door seals clean
Take care to keep door seals clean. Sticky food and drink
can cause seals to stick to the cabinet and tear when you
open the door. Wash the seal with a mild detergent and
warm water. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and dry.
CAUTION
Never use hot water, solvents, commercial kitchen cleaners,
aerosol cleaners, metal polishes, caustic or abrasive cleaners,
or scourers to clean your refrigerator. Many commercially
available cleaning products and detergents contain solvents
that will damage your refrigerator. Use only a soft cloth with
an unscented mild soap and lukewarm water.
If your refrigerator has telescopic extension slides, simply wipe
them with a damp cloth to clean them and never immerse
them in water.

helpful hints for FREEZing food
You can use the freezer to store food which you buy in bulk
when prices are low. You can also cook extra food and
freeze it for later use.
always do this
Buy the freshest, best quality food and put it in the freezer
as soon as possible.
Place food in plastic bags or plastic wrap before you put it
in the freezer.
Squeeze the air out of plastic bags as this prevents frost.
When you buy frozen foods in the supermarket, keep them
in their packaging when you store them.
Defrost food, especially chicken and fish, in the refrigerator
compartment. This stops bacteria from growing.
Leave food in its wrapping while it defrosts.
Use defrosted food immediately.
WARNING
When you dispose of your old refrigerator or freezer remove
any doors. Children can suffocate if they get trapped inside.
never do this
Never refreeze defrosted food.

HELPFUL HINTS
troubleshooting
If you think something may be wrong with your refrigerator, you can carry out some easy checks before calling for service.
You may locate the problem, sparing yourself from inconvenience and saving time and money.
problem
solution
problem
solution
When your
appliance is
not operating
•C
heck that the power cord is plugged
into the power outlet properly and
that the outlet is switched ‘ON’.
When the motor
seems to run more
than expected
Your new appliance provides you with
large capacities in both the refrigerator
section and the separate freezer.
It is normal for the motor to operate
frequently. However, to keep operation
to a minimum, check the following:
• Are doors kept open too long or
too often?
• Are controls set too cold?
See ‘Adjusting temperature’
in your relevant model section.
• Have large amounts of warm food
just recently been stored?
Summer, festive seasons and
holidays usually mean a lot more
work for your appliance.
• Try running another appliance from the
power outlet. If no power is coming
from the outlet you may have blown
a fuse or tripped a circuit of your
household power supply.
• Try adjusting the temperature control
to a slightly “colder” position.
• It is normal for the freezer fan NOT
to operate during the automatic
defrost cycle, or for a short time
after the appliance is switched on.
When there is
refrigerator/freezer
noise
Modern refrigerators/freezers with
increased storage capacity use high
speed compressors. These can provide
a seemingly high level of sound which
is quite normal. Normal operational
sounds include:
• Occasional gurgling, similar to water
boiling.
• Air flow noise (air circulates because
of a small fan).
• A popping noise heard during
automatic defrost.
• A clicking noise heard just before
the compressor starts (this is merely
the automatic switching action of
the temperature control, turning the
compressor on or off).
Other strange sounds may mean that
you need to check and take action.
For example, noises may mean that:
• The cabinet is not level.
• The floor is uneven or weak.
• Bottles are badly placed and rattling.
• There are vibrations from an object
on top of or behind or beside the
refrigerator.
• The back of the refrigerator cabinet
is touching the wall.
Remember it is quite normal for noise
to seem louder just after the refrigerator
starts operating.
If there are odours
inside the appliance
• If the day is hot or the room is very
warm, the appliance will need to run
more than normal.
• The appliance will run more that
normal just after you install it or when
it has been turned off for a long time.
If the temperature
in the refrigerator
is too warm
• Refer to ‘Adjusting temperature’
in your relevant model section.
• You may have kept the door open
too long or too frequently.
• Food containers or packaging
may be holding a door open.
If the temperature
in the refrigerator
is too cold
• Refer to ‘Adjusting temperature’
in your relevant model section.
If heavy frosting
occurs in the freezer
Make sure you fully close the freezer
and fridge doors. If the doors are left
partly open a heavy frost will coat the
inside of the freezer. If a frost develops,
remove it. Take care to properly close
the doors and the frost will not reoccur.
If water drips
on the floor
The defrost water tray, (located at the
back or underneath of the cabinet) may
not be properly positioned, or the drain
tube may not be properly positioned to
direct water into this tray. You may need
to pull the refrigerator away from the
wall to check the tray and tube.
Fridge does not exit
vacation mode
Turn appliance off at the powerpoint.
Leave off for three (3) minutes for the
memory to clear, then turn back on.
• The interior may need cleaning.
• Some foods produce odours.
• Some containers and wrapping can
cause odours.
• Ask yourself if the odour started
about the same time you started
storing something unusual.
TROUBLESHOOTING

• Check that the appliance has enough
clearance at the sides, back and top.
Refer to the installation Instructions at
the front of this booklet.
• Increase the temperature to avoid
high energy consumption.
