Using your Baumatic combi fridge freezer
Before switching on
o Make sure that it has been installed by a suitably qualified
person, as per the information contained in Baumatic’s
installation instructions.
o After delivery, wait for eight hours before connecting the
appliance to your mains supply. This will allow any refrigerant
gasses that may have been disturbed during the transportation
process to settle.
o The outside of the appliance and the removable accessories
contained within it, should be cleaned with a solution of liquid
detergent and water.
o The interior of the appliance should be cleaned
with a solution of sodium bicarbonate dissolved in
lukewarm water. The interior and accessories
should be thoroughly dried, after the cleaning
process has been completed.
o There can be an odour when you first switch on the appliance. It
will lessen as the appliance starts to cool.
During first use
o You should set the thermostat dial to its maximum setting
(S.Cool/S.Frz) for 24 hours, after switching on the appliance for
the first time.
o When you first switch on the appliance, the compressor will run
continuously for approximately 24 hours or until the fridge
freezer reaches a cool enough temperature.
o During this period of time, you should try not to open the door
frequently or place a large amount of food within the appliance.
o You should then adjust the thermostat dial down to its normal
operating position.
o If the unit is switched off or unplugged, you must allow at least 5
minutes before restarting the appliance on the thermostat or
connecting it to your mains supply.
10
Switching on the appliance and setting the thermostat
You switch on your appliance by connecting it to your mains supply
and pressing the power button for 3 seconds. The thermostat dials are
also located on the control panel, which can be found at the top of the
fridge-freezer.
IMPORTANT: The fridge and freezer sections are controlled
independently and have separate temperature control dials.
o The thermostat automatically regulates the temperature inside
the fridge/freezer, depending on which setting you have turned
the thermostat dial to.
o If the dial is positioned nearer to the Low setting, then you will
get a lower temperature inside the fridge/freezer sections.
o If the dial is positioned nearer to the High setting,
then you will get a higher temperature inside the
fridge and freezer sections.
o Ideally the dial should be set to the midway position of ‘Mid’.
o Your refrigerator can maintain a temperature of between 4 – 6
degrees centigrade.
o The freezer section can cool down to -18 degrees centigrade and
lower.
o IMPORTANT: The ambient temperature of the room,
the temperature of food and the amount of food that
has been placed in the appliance and how often the door
is opened, will all affect the temperature being
maintained by the appliance.
o When positioned on or near the maximum setting (S.Cool / S.Frz or
Low) your fridge freezer will work harder to maintain a lower
temperature and will increase the energy usage. There is no need
to run your appliance at this setting for prolonged periods. You
should generally have the dial set to ‘Mid’, as outlined above.
11
Super Cool mode
This setting should be used if you want to cool something quickly, it
will ensure that a powerful supply of cold air enters the fridge section.
o Select the Super
thermostat dial.
Cool
indicator
(‘S.Cool’)
on
the
fridge
o Super Cool mode will continue to run until manually turned off by selecting a normal temperature range on the thermostat dial.
o Once you are satisfied that your item(s) have been sufficiently
cooled, you should return the appliance to normal operation as
outlined above.
o NOTE: Please see pages 16 for Super Freeze mode details.
IMPORTANT: If you run the appliance with the thermostat dial
on super cool mode for prolonged periods, it will cause the
appliance to overwork and the fridge section to freeze.
TRY TO AVAIOD RUNNING THE SUPER COOL MODE FOR MORE
THAN 24 HOURS
Open door warning alarm
Your appliance is equipped with an open door warning alarm in the
fridge section.
o If the fridge door is left open for over 60 seconds then the open
door alarm will sound.
o The alarm is an audible buzzer which will sound 3 times every 0.5
seconds, every 30 seconds until the door is closed.
o If the warning alarm stays on for a prolonged period after the door
has been closed then you should contact the Baumatic Customer
Care Department.
12
Arranging and storing food in the fridge section
o Warm food or evaporating liquids should not be stored in your
refrigerator, as this will increase the humidity inside of the
appliance.
o All foods should be wrapped or covered, this is particularly
important if the food has a strong flavour. You should use polythene
bags or sheets, aluminium foil, wax paper. Liquids should be stored
in covered containers or bottles.
o To maximise the space inside of the fridge section, any excessive
packaging on the food should be removed.
o Quickly perishable food should be stored at the back of the
refrigerator, which is the coldest part of the appliance.
o No food items should be allowed to come into contact with the back
wall of the refrigerator.
o Make sure that you arrange food in such a way that the door can
close completely. Particular attention should be given to bottles that
may protrude when placed on shelves inside the main section of the
refrigerator.
o Some organic solutions, such as the oils in lemon/orange peel and
acid in butter, can cause damage to the plastic parts contained
inside of the refrigerator.
o Do not open the refrigerator door too often or leave the door open
for long periods of time, as this will increase the temperature inside
of the appliance and will increase the energy usage.
o Meat should be wrapped in polythene bags and then placed on the
glass shelf above the salad drawers.
(Meat should only be stored in this manner for one or two
days at the most).
o Cold dishes/cooked food should be covered and can be placed on
any shelf.
o Fruit and vegetables should be cleaned thoroughly and placed in
the salad drawers.
o Cheese and butter should be placed in airtight containers, or they
can be wrapped in aluminium foil or polythene bags. As much air as
possible should be removed from the bags.
13
o Milk bottles should have a cap on them and be stored on the
bottle shelf that sits in the door.
o Garlic, potatoes, onions and bananas should only be stored
in a refrigerator IF they are stored in airtight containers.
The
freezer compartment
The freezer compartment is suitable for storing and freezing food.
o The freezer compartment temperature must have already
reached -18 degrees centigrade (or lower) before you attempt to
store food that is already frozen or freezing fresh food.
o The freezer compartment is only able to freeze a certain quantity
of food at one time. The maximum amount of fresh food that can
be frozen within a 24 hour period is 10 kg. You should not
attempt to freeze more than this amount of fresh food within a
24 hour period.
o Warm food should be allowed to cool down before you attempt
to freeze it. If you place warm food in the freezer compartment,
then the increased humidity will cause quicker ice formation and
increase the amount of power that the appliance uses.
o The guidance of the food manufacturer should be followed, in
regard to the maximum storage time.
o Thawed foods must not be frozen for a second time.
o It is possible to store food in the freezer section without the
baskets supplied.
o If power is cut to the appliance, then the food inside of it will be
safe for a maximum of 12 hours. You should minimise the
number of times that you open the doors of the appliance during
this period of time.
Freezing fresh food
o To freeze the maximum quantity of fresh food specified on the
rating plate, you should follow the “Freezing using the super
freeze setting” section on page 16, a few hours prior to freezing.
o For smaller quantities of fresh food, you should follow the
“Freezing using the super freeze setting” section on page 16 one
hour prior to freezing.
14
o Fresh food should be packed into airtight containers
or packaging. This will help to make sure that the
food doesn’t dry out or lose its flavour. It will also
ensure that flavour does not transfer from other
foods.
o After 24 hours you should check that the fresh food
is satisfactorily frozen. If it is then the thermostat
dial should be turned back to its normal operating
position.
IMPORTANT: The super freeze setting should not be switched
on for prolonged periods of time; otherwise it may cause the
appliance to overwork. It could also cause the freezer section
to freeze over.
Tips on freezing
o Freezer bags, polythene wraps, aluminium foil (extra thick) and
special cans for frozen foods are suitable packaging for storing
frozen goods in.
o Tape, rubber bands or plastic clips are suitable for
sealing bags and wrappings.
o Before sealing a suitable bag, you should compress the air out of it,
as this will help the food to freeze more easily.
o Flat packages freeze more easily.
o If you are freezing liquid, then do not fill the container to the brim.
Liquids will expand when being frozen.
o Do not place bottles (glass or tin) containing liquids
(especially sparkling liquids) into the freezer as
they could cause the bottle to burst during freezing.
Making ice cubes
o Fill the ice cube tray with water and place it in the freezer
compartment.
o After the water is completely frozen and turned to ice, you can twist
the ice cube tray (as shown in the drawing below) to dispense the
ice.
15
Freezing using the Super Freeze setting
This setting should be used if you are freezing fresh food, it will ensure
that a powerful supply of cold air enters the freezer compartment,
ensuring that the food is frozen quickly.
o If you are freezing the maximum amount of fresh food that can
be frozen in a 24 hour period (10Kg), then it should be switched
on a few hours prior to freezing.
o If you are freezing a smaller quantity of fresh food, then it
should be switched on 1 hour prior to freezing.
o Select Super Freeze (‘S.Frz’) on the freezer temperature control
dial and the freezer will start to run continuously at its maximum
setting.
o The freezer temperature will decrease and the appliance will get
to its lowest temperature.
o Place the food that is to be frozen inside the freezer.
o Once the food is frozen, you should turn off the super frost
setting and return the dial to normal operation. DO NOT TURN
OFF SUPER FREEZE UNTIL THE FOOD IS FULLY FROZEN.
o IMPORTANT: The super freeze setting should not be
switched on for prolonged periods of time, otherwise it
may cause the appliance to overwork. It could also cause
the freezer section to freeze over.
Saving energy when using your fridge-freezer
There are some simple things you can do to save energy when
installing or using your fridge-freezer:
Installing:
o Install the appliance in a cool position. If it is placed in direct
sunlight or next to an oven or other heat source, the energy
consumption can increase substantially.
o Ensure the appliance is installed with the correct ventilation
requirements. Restricting ventilation can increase the energy
consumption by 15%.
16
Cleaning and Maintenance:
o Occasionally clean the condenser coils (if present) at the back of
the appliance to maintain a high performance level.
o Clean the door gasket with warm water or a neutral detergent
that leaves no residue. A tight-sealing door gasket is critical to
the efficiency of your appliance.
Usage:
o Do not open the door repeatedly or more frequently than you
have to.
o Do not set the thermostat too low. A change of just one degree
can effect the energy consumption by 5%. Use a thermometer to
check the temperature.
o The freezer compartment should operate at -15 to -18 degrees
Celsius. The refrigerator compartment should operate at around
3 to 4 degrees Celsius.
o Allow food to sufficiently cool before putting it in the appliance
(but do not let it sit at room temperature for too long).
o In the freezer compartment, food packages should be scattered
and never grouped or stacked together until they are completely
frozen.
o If you are going away for a long period of time, turn off the
appliance, empty and clean it and leave the door ajar.
o If you have a second appliance that is not used, make sure that
it is stored with the power off and the door left ajar until it is
actually required.
Disposing:
o If you're going to throw out your old fridge, see if there's a
chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) recycler in your area. The
government department which looks after the environment in
your area may be able to help you.
17
Cleaning and maintenance
WARNING: PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR
APPLIANCE IS DISCONNECTED FROM
YOUR
MAINS
SUPPLY
BEFORE
ATTEMPTING TO CLEAN IT.
o Do not clean the appliance by pouring water onto it
or spraying water over it.
o The refrigerator and freezer compartment should be
cleaned periodically, using a solution of bicarbonate
of soda and lukewarm water.
o Clean the accessories separately with soap and water.
Do not clean them in a dishwasher.
o Do not use abrasive products, detergents or soaps.
o After washing the appliance, wipe over the area that you have
cleaned with a damp cloth and then dry it thoroughly.
o When cleaning is complete, dry your hands and then reconnect
the plug to your mains supply.
18
Defrosting the
freezer compartment
Your appliance is frost free, so you will not need to manually defrost
the freezer section.
However if for example the door is left open for a prolonged period of
time or the door gasket is not sealing correctly, then you could get ice
building in the freezer section. If this occurs, then you should follow
the steps below and perform a manual defrost.
o The day before you defrost, you should turn the thermostat dial
to its maximum setting. This will make sure that the food
contained in the freezer section is frozen properly.
o Whilst defrosting the appliance, the food should be removed
from the compartment and wrapped in several layers of paper
and stored in a cool place. The foods rise in temperature will
shorten its storage life and therefore the food should be used
within a relatively short period of time.
o DO
NOT
PLACE
FOOD
BACK
IN
THE
COMPARTMENT THAT HAS STARTED TO THAW.
FREEZER
o After ensuring that your hands are dry, disconnect your fridge
freezer from your mains supply
o Remove the drawers from the freezer section and leave the door
to the freezer compartment open. You can place a bowl of warm
water inside of the freezer compartment to speed up the defrost
process.
o You can use a sponge to mop up the defrost water that will run
into the bottom of the freezer section.
o IMPORTANT: You should place some old towels on the flooring
that is immediately in front of the appliance; in case any defrost
water comes out of the freezer section and onto the floor.
o Once all the ice that has built up has melted, then the inside of
the freezer compartment should be dried thoroughly. Failure to
do this will result in immediate ice build when the appliance is
switched back on.
o With dry hands, reconnect your appliance to your mains supply.
You should turn the thermostat dial to its maximum setting for
24 hours.
o You should not attempt to freeze fresh food inside the freezer
compartment until this 24 hour time period has elapsed.
19
o Once the 24 hour period has elapsed, you should return the
thermostat dial to its normal operating position.
o Do not defrost the appliance with other electrical devices
(e.g. hair dryer). Do not use sharp metal objects to
remove the ice on the freezer, as this could cause damage
to the refrigerant system.
Replacing the light bulb
WARNING: PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR

Open the upper door of the fridge and hang the assembled upper
cupboard door onto the bolts protruding from the top of the fridge
door, as show in the diagram below:
IMPORTANT: IF YOU
HAVE REMOVED THE
DOOR SENSOR MAKE
SURE THAT IT IS
REINSTALLED.
31
Adjusting the cabinet door
o
o
The nuts and screws on the top of the
fridge door that secure to the fixing
plate (cabinet door) are adjustable.
Once hanging, you can adjust the level
and centre of the door. The bolts which
the door/fixing plate hang on will
adjust approximately 5mm.
Using an appropriate tool:
o Twist the height adjustment screw to allow for about 5mm
movement in height.
o
Loosen the horizontal adjustment nut to allow for about 5mm
movement in width. Retighten the nut once in place.
o
Loosen the depth adjustment screw to allow for about 3mm
movement in depth. Retighten the screw once in place.
o
Take care to check the clearances on all sides of the door when
making adjustments to ensure that the door opens/closes without
interference.
o
Refit the locking nuts onto the top fix plate bolts and tighten,
ensuring the door alignment is still correct.
o
Once satisfied, you can then secure the door at the bottom using
the lower fixing brackets.
IMPORTANT: The lower fixing should only be attached when
the door is sitting centrally and horizontal.
32
Attaching the lower fixings
o Loosen the bracket screws on the bottom of the fridge door and
move them until they fit against the cupboard door.
o
There will be a gap of a few millimetres between the fridge door
and the cupboard door, and it should be parallel with the appliance
door from top to bottom.
IMPORTANT: Ensure the doors are parallel with each other.
o The bottom of the cabinet door is aligned by slightly loosening the
fixing screws and adjusting the position of the fixing brackets.
Retighten the screws when you are satisfied with its position.
33
Complete door installation
o Fasten the fix
plate cover
into the top of
the door as
shown in the
diagram
opposite.
* Repeat the process for the bottom door of the appliance.
o
Attach the bracket, hinge, fix plate and lower bracket covers.

Troubleshooting
IMPORTANT: If your fridge freezer appears not to be
operating properly, before contacting the Baumatic
Customer Care Department, please refer to the
checklist below.
My fridge freezer does not appear to be working/there
is no power to my appliance.
o Check that the plug is fully inserted into the power socket.
o Check that there is power to your mains supply (e.g. that there
hasn’t been a power cut or that the fuse hasn’t blown).
o Check that the thermostat has not been turned to the off
position.
o Check that your mains supply voltage, corresponds to the
voltage stated on the rating plate of your appliance.
My fridge freezer appears to be performing poorly
o Check that the appliance isn’t overloaded and that food hasn’t
been packed too tightly into it.
o The thermostat setting is too low; you should turn the
thermostat up higher.
o Ensure that the door is closing properly and that the door has
not been opened for a prolonged period in error.
o Ensure that there is adequate ventilation for your appliance.
My fridge freezer is noisy
o The refrigerant gas that circulates the pipe work of the appliance
may make a slight noise, even if the compressor is not running.
o If the noise worsens or the appliance gets louder than normal;
check that it is levelled off correctly, that nothing is touching the
rear of the fridge freezer and that nothing placed inside the
appliance is rattling.
35
Ice has formed on the inner back wall of my fridge
o Check that food has not been pushed too far back inside the
appliance, so that it is in contact with the inner back wall.
o IMPORTANT: It is normal to get some ice droplets forming on the
back wall of the appliance. The formation of ice droplets does not
indicate an appliance fault.
My fridge is beeping (alarm)
o Check that the doors are closed properly and that all door seals are
flush. Please see the “Open door warning alarm” section.
o If you have recently installed your appliance with a décor door, then
please review pages 30-31 for the door installation process and
warnings concerning the door sensor.
IMPORTANT: If your appliance appears not to be
operating correctly, then you should disconnect it
from your mains supply and then contact the
Baumatic
Customer
Care
Department
on
telephone number (0118) 933 6911.
