installed correctly the cabinet will consume less
¥ Try to avoid keeping the doors open for long
periods or opening the doors too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
¥ If the ambient temperature is high, the thermostat
knob is on the coldest setting (higher numbers) and
the appliance is fully loaded, the compressor may
run continuously, causing frost or ice to form on the
evaporator. If this happens, turn the knob to a
warmer setting (lower numbers) to allow automatic
defrosting and so a saving in electricity
¥ Do not place warm foods inside the appliance.
Allow warm foods to cool first.
¥ Put frozen food in the fridge to defrost. The cold in
the frozen food will then be used to cool the fridge.
¥ Keep the heat emitting condenser, the metall grille
on the rear wall of your appliance, always clean.
Hints for refrigeration
¥ Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids in
the refrigerator and do cover or wrap up the food,
particularly if it has a strong smell.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some useful hints:

polythene bags and place on top of the salad
compartment, this being the coldest spot in the
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
¥ Cooked food, cold cuts, jelly, etc.: these should
be well covered and can be stored on any of the
wire shelves.
¥ Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom drawer/s.
¥ Butter & cheese: these should be placed in
special airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium
foil or polythene bags to keep out as much air as
¥ Milk bottles: these should have a top and should
be stored in the bottle rack on the door.
Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not
packed, must not be kept in the refrigerator.
Freezer compartment
Temperature Control
¥ To freeze fresh foods it is not necessary to change
the setting of the thermostat knob.
¥ For a quicker freezing operation, turn the
thermostat knob to the coldest setting; but
remember that, in this condition, the refrigerator
compartment temperature might drop below 0¡C. If
this occurs reset thermostat knob to a warmer
¥ At the first starting-up or after a period out of use,
before putting the products in the compartment, let
the appliance run for at least two hours on the
coldest setting, then turn the thermostat knob to
the normal operating position.

which is already frozen, thus avoiding a rise in
temperature of the latter.
¥ Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your
hands could stick to the food and cause skin
