19
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.
o Meat should be wrapped in polythene bags and then placed on
the glass shelf above the salad crisper drawer. (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 Salad and vegetables should be cleaned thoroughly and placed
in the salad crisper drawers.
o Fruit should be cleaned thoroughly and placed in the fruit
drawer.
20
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.
o Milk bottles should have a cap on them and be stored on the
bottle shelves that sit 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 section
The freezer section is suitable for storing and freezing food.
o The freezer section 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 section is only able to freeze a certain quantity of
fresh food at one time. The maximum amount of fresh food (in
kilograms) that can be frozen in a 24 hour period is 10 kg.
o Warm food should be allowed to cool down before you attempt
to freeze it. If you place warm food in the freezer section, 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.
21
Freezing fresh food
o To freeze the maximum quantity of fresh food
specified above, you should set the freezer to fast
freeze mode (see page 13), 24 hours prior to
attempting freezing.
o To freeze smaller quantities of fresh food, you
should set the freezer to fast freeze mode a few
hours prior to attempting freezing.
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.
Do not allow fresh food to touch items that are
already frozen.
o
o After 24 hours you should check that the fresh food
is satisfactorily frozen. If it is then you should
return the appliance to normal temperature
settings.
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 this could
cause the bottle to burst during freezing.
22
Storing commercially frozen food
o The storage time and recommended temperature for storing
commercially frozen foods are indicated on the packaging.
o Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for storage and
use of frozen food.
o When shopping, be careful to choose food which is adequately
packed and is provided with complete storage instructions. It
should have been stored in a freezer where the temperature
does not rise above -18°C.
o Do not buy packages of food that are covered with frost. This
could indicate that the package has thawed at least once before.
o Take care that your frozen food packages do not start to thaw
before you place them in your freezer. This will shorten the
length of time that you can safely store the food for.
Defrosting frozen food
o Partially thawed or defrosted foods should be used as soon as
possible.
o Cold air preserves the food but it does not destroy the micro
organisms which rapidly activate themselves after defrosting and
make foods perishable.
o Partial defrosting reduces the nutritional value of food, especially
fruits, vegetables and readymade meals.
Normal operating noises
Ice cracking noise
o Can be heard during the automatic defrosting process.
o Can be caused by expansion and contraction within the icebox.
o Can be caused by ice dropping from the ice maker into the ice
storage box
Short cracking noise
o Can be heard when the thermostat turns the compressor on and
off.
o Can be caused by the dispenser water supply valve closing.
23
Compressor noise
o There will be an operating noise when the compressor is running.
o After installation, the compressor may be noisier for a short
period of time.
o A similar noise can be caused by the ice dispenser motor.
Bubbling and burbling sound
o This noise is emitted as the coolant flows through the pipework
within the fridge.
Water flowing sound
o This is caused by water flowing into the evaporating tray during
the defrosting process and can be heard whilst the fridge is
defrosting.
o Can be caused by the water/ice dispenser.
Important user information
IMPORTANT: Care should be taken to make sure that
the airflow duct vents on the rear interior wall of the
fridge and freezer sections are not blocked.
IMPORTANT: If your mains power supply fails, then
the food inside of the freezer section will be
preserved for a 5 hour period. After 5 hours the food
should be removed from the freezer section and
consumed as quickly as possible.
Saving energy when 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%.
24
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 should operate at around 3 to 4 degrees
Celsius.
o Allow food to sufficiently cool before putting it in the appliance
(but don’t 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.

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 section 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.
IMPORTANT: Before attempting any of the cleaning steps
shown below, you should remove all items from the
shelves and sections that you are cleaning.
Fridge and freezer door sections
o To remove a door shelf: Take off all
of the items that are stored on the
shelf that you want to remove. Pull
the shelf upwards (1) and then
carefully pull it away from the inside
of the door (2).
26
Fridge and freezer shelves
o To remove a shelf: Take off all of
the items that are stored on the
shelf that you want to remove. Pull
the shelf forwards (a), then lift the
front of the shelf (b) towards 90°
and carefully pull it out of the
grooves (c).
Salad crisper drawers
o To remove a drawer, lift up a little and pull
forward.
Interior parts
o Use a cloth that has been wetted with water
and mild (neutral) detergent and wipe over
the interior parts of the appliance.
Door seal
o Use a cloth that has been wetted with water
and mild (neutral) detergent and wipe
around the door seal.
Rear grill
o At least once a year, remove any dust that
has gathered on the grill at the rear of the
appliance, using a vacuum cleaner.
27
Dispenser shelf
o Take out the spillage grill and use a cloth to
remove water from and clean this area.
DO NOT USE ANY FORM OF ASOLINE
(PETROL) OR BENZENE (BENZOL)
THINNERS ON ANY AREA OF THE
APPLIANCE. AS THESE CHEMICALS CAN
DAMAGE THE SURFACES.
The defrost drain hole
o Defrosting occurs automatically in the fridge section during
operation. The defrost water is collected by the evaporating tray
and evaporates automatically.
o The drain hole should be cleaned periodically with the drain hole
cleaner. This will prevent water from collecting in the bottom of
the refrigerator, instead of flowing down the defrost drainage
channel and drain hole.
o IMPORTANT: Please note that the drain hole cleaner should not
be left in position permanently. Otherwise this may prevent the
defrost water from entering the drain hole.
o You can also pour a small amount of water down the drain hole
to clean the defrost drainage channel.
o You should be careful to make sure that food packages do not
touch the rear wall of the appliance, as this can interrupt the
automatic defrosting process and deflect water into the base of
your refrigerator.
28
o Use a solution of bicarbonate of soda and lukewarm water to
clean the evaporating tray.
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.
Defrosting the
freezer section
Your appliance is frost free, so you should 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.
o The day before you defrost, you should activate fast freeze
mode; this will make sure that the food contained in the section
is frozen properly.
o Whilst defrosting the appliance, the food should be removed
from the section 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 FREEZER SECTION
THAT HAS STARTED TO THAW.
o Turn the appliance off by turning off the power supply to the
fridge freezer.
o Remove the drawers and shelves from the freezer section and
leave the door to the freezer section open. You can place a bowl
of warm water inside the freezer section 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 section should be dried thoroughly. Failure to do this
will result in immediate ice build when the appliance is turned
back on.
29
o With dry hands, reconnect your appliance to your mains supply.
You should activate fast freeze for a 24 hour period, before
returning it to the normal temperature setting of at least -18°C
o You should not attempt to freeze fresh food inside the freezer
section until this 24 hour time period has elapsed.
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.
The light bulb
WARNING: This product is fitted with durable LED bulbs which
last for approximately 10,000 hours. Therefore, there is no
need to change the bulb unless it is faulty or damaged. If a
bulb does need replacing, do not change the fuse or LED lamp
on your own. Please call the Baumatic Customer Care
Department to arrange an engineer visit.
Installation
IMPORTANT: Before installation and usage read
all the instructions and make sure that the
voltage (V) and the frequency (Hz) indicated on
the rating plate are exactly the same as the
voltage and frequency in your home. The rating
plate can be found behind the salad crisper
drawers.
The manufacturer declines all responsibility in the event of the installer
failing to observe all the accident prevention regulations in force,
which are necessary for normal use and the regular operation of the
electric system.

30
o Your refrigerator comes supplied with a 13 amp plug fitted. If in
future you need to change the fuse in this plug, then a 13 amp
ASTA approved (BS 1362) fuse must be used.
o The refrigerator should not share a multi-purpose socket with
other electrical appliances.
o The wiring in the mains lead is coloured as follows:
Brown
Blue
Green and yellow
Live
Neutral
Earth
o As the colours of the wires in the appliance’s mains lead may not
correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals
in your spur box, please proceed as follows:
The brown wire must be connected to the terminal marked “L”
(live), or coloured red.
The blue wire must be connected to the terminal marked “N”
(neutral), or coloured black. The green and yellow wire must
be connected to the terminal marked “E” (earth), or by the earth
symbol, or coloured green and yellow.
o When the connection is completed, no stray strands or cut wire
should be present. The cord clamp must be secured over the
outer sheath.
Positioning
o It is advisable that your appliance is only installed in a location
where the ambient temperature of the room, corresponds with
the climate classification that is stated on the rating plate of your
appliance. Your appliance may not function correctly if the
ambient temperature falls outside of the following ranges.

SN
+10 to +32 degrees centigrade
N
+16 to +32 degrees centigrade
ST
+18 to +38 degrees centigrade
T
+18 to +43 degrees centigrade
o Positioning the appliance requires two persons in order to avoid
injuries or damage to the appliance.
31
o Your appliance should not be located in direct sunlight or
exposed to continuous heat or extremes of temperature (e.g.
next to a radiator or boiler). If this is not feasible, then you
should install an insulation plate between the appliance and the
adjacent heat source.
o You should check whether there is an electrical socket available,
which will be accessible after your appliance is installed.
o Place the appliance flatly and firmly on a solid base. The
appliance is fitted with adjustable feet on the front side, which
can be used to level the appliance.
o The rear side of the appliance is fitted with wheels which
facilitate the positioning of the appliance into its final location.
o Anything positioned above the appliance must be at least 30 cm
away to allow sufficient cooling of the condenser. You must allow
a 5 cm gap either side of the appliance and a 10 cm gap to the
rear.
o If you are placing another cooling appliance next door to this
product, then there must be a gap of at least 5 cm between the
appliances. This will help to prevent condensation from forming.
o Be sure to leave enough space for the opening of the door, to
avoid damage to the appliance or personal injury.
Installation preparation
IMPORTANT: A minimum of two people should
complete all of the installation steps given in this
manual.
o Check that the appliance will easily pass through all doorways
en-route to its final position.
o Appliance dimensions: 1760 mm (h) x 902 mm (w) x 750 mm
(d) (including door handles).
o If your appliance will not fit through a doorway, then it is
possible to remove the fridge and freezer doors by following the
process on the following pages.

34
Installing the decorative plinth
o A decorative cover for the base of the appliance can be installed
if you wish however it is not essential. The plinth is for
decorative purposes only and will not affect the refrigerator’s
performance.
o The plinth should be installed using the 3 screws as shown in the
diagram below:
The water inlet hose and water filter
o The water pressure should be 2.06 - 6.89 bar / 30-100 psi to
allow the icemaker to operate correctly.
o Care should be taken to make sure that the water inlet does not
come into contact with any hot surfaces.
o The water filter only filters the water; it does not eliminate
bacteria or microbes.
o The water filter life will depend on how often you dispense water
and ice. We recommend that the water filter is replaced at least
every 6 months.
o IMPORTANT: The water inlet MUST be connected to your cold
water supply.
35
Connecting the water inlet hose and water filter
1) Connection the water inlet hose to the connector on the rear of the
appliance.
2) Place the seal inside of

cold water mains supply. Push
the water inlet hose firmly onto
connector A.
o Ensure that the water tap which the inlet hose is connected to is
fully open.
o Select the water dispensing option and run it for 2 – 3 minutes,
this supplies water to the water tank and will eventually dispense
water.
36
IMPORTANT- The running of water through the inlet hose and filter
must be done, to make sure that any impurities from the
manufacturing process are washed out.
o Check thoroughly for any leaks.
IMPORTANT- If there are any signs of water leaks, you should follow
the installation procedure stage by stage again.
