Using the Ice Maker
Ice Maker Principles:
The ice maker tray periodically receives an automatic flow of
water to the ice maker ice cube tray. Once the water freezes
a sensor on the tray recognises cubes have been made and
automatically twists the tray to drop the ice cubes into the
ice bucket. The capacity of the ice maker depends on the
ambient temperature, frequency of the freezer door openings
and freezer compartment cooling temperature setting.
Typical ice harvest is 1.8 kg per day.
If This is Your First Ice Maker
Occasionally you may hear sounds, like the flowing of water
or ice cubes dropping. These sounds are quite normal and are
not a cause for concern or complaint. In periods of infrequent
use ice cubes may stick together; again this is quite normal.
ArtNo.600-0005 - Freezer drawer 1
If You Do Not Use Ice Too Often
Older ice cubes can get stale. Clean the ice container
periodically using warm water. Before putting it back, dry it
well so that the cubes do not stick to the surfaces.
If You Do Not Use the Ice Container For Long Periods of
If you will not be using the ice container for a long time,
throw out the remaining ice cubes, wash the container with
warm water, dry it with a towel and place back in the fridge.
Close the water supply to the ice maker (see ‘Closing the Water
Supply to the Ice Maker’).
ArtNo.600-0006 - Freezer drawer 2
Note: When opening the upper freezer drawer, avoid rapid
pull out which can cause the ice cubes to fall into the lower
deep freeze drawer.

3. Food Storage Tips
Tips on Storing Fresh Food
Make sure that foods, which have been cooked and
require chilling, are at room temperature before placing
them into the appliance. Make sure that these foods are
stored in suitable containers.
Foods stored in the refrigerator should be cleaned and
dried before storing.
Before foods are put into the refrigerator, it is
recommended that the foods should be pressurised,
so that the water cannot vaporise, and the fruits and
vegetables keep fresh and food smells will not mix.
Stored foods can be marked in bags.
Foods eaten daily should be stored at the front of the
Make sure that foodstuffs are stored systematically (raw
meats with raw meats, dairy with dairy) to avoid flavour
transfer and cross contamination. Raw meats should be
stored towards the bottom of the appliance to prevent
the possibility of it dripping onto uncooked food. Other
foods should be stored above raw meat.
When storing food in the fresh food section always
make sure there is adequate space for airflow
circulation. This helps to maintain the shelf life of the
When storing food in the refrigerator make sure that
foods are not too close to the rear wall to avoid the risk
of freezing.
It is suggested for radishes and other root vegetables to
trim the leaves. This keeps the nutrition in the root and
not absorbed by the leaves.
Put frozen foods into the fresh food area to let them
defrost. The low temperature of the refrigerator reduces
the formation of bacteria and extends food life.
Some foods like onions, garlic, bananas and root
vegetables are better stored at room temperature than
in the fridge.
Melon, pineapples and bananas can go directly into the
freezer after preparing, for storage over a longer period.
Packaging fresh foods properly, using the correct
temperature and taking into account food hygiene, will
enhance the quality of fresh foods stored within this
Use plastic bags, aluminium foil or other food wraps to
cover fresh foods not in packaging to prevent flavour
transfer and prevent contamination.
Before storing items in multi-packs (i.e. yoghurt) remove
any excess packaging.
NEVER store anything that is flammable, volatile or
explosive inside the appliance.
Beverages with high alcohol content should be stored
vertically in tightly sealed bottles.
Delicate foods should be stored in the coolest part of
the appliance.
Try not to open the door too often.
Set the thermostat to make sure that foods remain
suitably cold; try to avoid freezing within the fridge.
Using a thermometer will help you to judge how cool
the appliance is. Place it into a glass of water and leave
it inside the appliance for several hours to get a reliable
Some foods contain natural oils and acids (e.g. citric
acid) which can damage plastics if spilled – make sure
these foods are suitably contained.
Unpleasant odours inside the fridge are a sign that
something has spilled and cleaning is required. Using
warm water with bicarbonate of soda will clean the
interior of the appliance and remove most spillages (see
‘Cleaning and Maintenance’).
Always remember to remove perishable foods from this
appliance before taking prolonged trips of holidays.
Tips on Freezing Food
When storing commercially frozen foods, please follow these
As with storing fresh foods, suitable packaging, correct
temperature and food hygiene will enhance the quality
of the food you are freezing.
Avoid putting hot foods into the freezer. First let them
cool until they reach room temperature.
Make sure that all foods for freezing are of a high
quality, and suitable for freezing.
Use packaging material that is odourless and airproof
(such as plastic bags) to store food in so different foods
can be mixed without affecting the quality. Make sure
that it is airtight. Leaking packaging will dehydrate the
products and lead to loss of beneficial vitamins.
Keep the surface of the packaging dry – this keeps the
packs from freezing together.
Mark packages with the kind of food contained and the
date of storage.
Food needs to be frozen quickly, so it is best to
freeze small portions whenever possible and ensure
that they are as cold as possible before storage. The
recommended maximum weight for each portion is
2.5 kg.
Keep food which is fresh away from food which is
already frozen, if you need to freeze fresh food every
day, make sure that it is in small portions to prevent this.
Do not exceed the maximum load for freezing – which is
given as 10 kg / 24-hours (see data badge for details).
Write the expiry date and food names on the outside of
the packaging so you can be assured of the food type
and when it is safe to eat.
Take food from the freezer to defrost when needed.
Defrosted food cannot be refrozen unless it is cooked.
Do not put too much fresh food into the freezer at once.
This could go beyond the freezer’s cooling capacity (see
‘Technical Data’).
Always follow manufacturers’ guidelines for the length
of time you should store food for. Do not exceed these
Try to keep the length of time between purchase and
storage as short as possible to preserve food quality.
Buy frozen foods, which have been stored at a
temperature of –18 °C or below.
Avoid buying food which has ice or frost on the
packaging – This indicates that the products might have
been partially defrosted and refrozen at some point –
temperature rises affect the quality of food.
Should there be a power cut, or the freezer /
refrigeration appliance fail for any length of time you
may need to remove food from the freezer and store
in a cold, hygienic place (i.e. garage or out house area)
until the power is restored, or the appliance is repaired.
To prevent undue temperature rises you should wrap
the foods in layers of insulating material, such as
newspaper, to help to maintain their temperature. It is
also important that any food affected by this situation
should be either consumed or cooked and refrozen
(where suitable) soon afterwards in order to prevent
health risks.
Layers of newspaper can also be used to help keep
foods cold while you are defrosting the freezer (see
‘Cleaning and Maintenance’).

ArtNo.600-0003 - Door alignment
Water Supply Connection
It is recommended to have this product installed by
a qualified technician.
ArtNo.600-0045 - Fitting the water pipe 1
Cut the water pipe according to need and avoid bending the
water pipe too much. Usually, the pipe length should be less
than 5 m. If the water pipe is too long, the ice and cold water
content will be affected because there may be insufficient
water pressure.
Insert one end of the water supply pipe into the water inlet
on the rear of the appliance (Fig.4-12).
Connect the other end into the plastic adaptor. Screw the
adaptor onto a suitable ¾” check valve or washing machine
The water pressure should be between 207-827 kPa
(21-123 psi) for correct operation of the cold water dispenser
and ice maker.
Open the water valve to flush the pipe, check leakage in the
water pipe joints and allow the water to run until it is clear.
The water pipe cannot withstand heat. Keep it away from all
heat sources.
Before first use, press the water dispenser pad several times
for 1 minute. Do not press for more than 1 minute to prevent
overheating of the pad activator solenoid. Cold water will
begin to flow from the outlet.
The water filter is there to filter impurities in the water, and to
make ice clean and hygienic. It cannot sterilise or destroy
anything, so be certain to connect the water pipe to a
drinkable water source.
To prevent the pipe from freezing, do not install the
water pipe in a space below 0 °C.
When the temperature of the ice maker is equal to or below
–15 °C the ice maker will begin to make ice.
Throw out the first few batches of ice cubes if you are
making ice for the first time or have not made it for a
long time.
After the refrigerator is installed, put the water supply
pipe in a suitable place to prevent crushing and
If the cubed ice becomes smaller, this may suggest that
the filter is blocked from the impurities.

The fridge is heavy. When moving the refrigerator
be careful to protect the floor. Keep the refrigerator
vertical and do not tilt the refrigerator – this
prevents damage to the floor.
DO NOT spray or rinse the fridge with water or other
liquids. This could harm the electrical parts.
Use a dry cloth when cleaning near the electrical
parts (such as the light bulb or switch).
DO NOT clean the fridge with a stiff or wire brush.
DO NOT use an organic solvent such as detergent,
petrol, lacquer, thinners, acetone or acid.
To prevent your skin sticking to cold steel parts,
make sure your hands are not wet when touching
the parts.
DO NOT use HOT water to clean the glass shelves, as
they may break or crack.
Water Filter
When the water filter indicator light comes on, it is indicating
that the water filter requires changing (approximately every
6 months). This interval is recommended for daily use.
If not used regularly, then it is suggested that the water filter
is replaced annually or when the water capacity or the ice
making capacity has shown an obvious decrease.
Please pay attention to your local conditions, as you may
need to change the water filter more frequently due to the
different water properties.
Changing the Water Filter
Remove the old filter by turning the filter cartridge handle
anti-clockwise (Fig.5-1). The cartridge will eject slightly from
the filter housing (Fig.5-2).
Air trapped in the system may cause water and the
filter cartridge to eject. Use caution when removing.
Pull out the cartridge from the filter housing.
Note: Place a container under the filter housing to catch any
water that may leak from the old filter cartridge.
Unclip the filter handle from the cartridge (Fig.5-3).
ArtNo.600-0028 - Replacing the filter 2
Remove the protective heat seal from the filter cartridge. Clip
the filter handle onto the new filter cartridge (Fig.5-3). Insert
it into the filter housing with the cartridge handle in the
vertical position (Fig.5-4). Push the filter cartridge into the
housing until it stops.
Gently turn the filter cartridge handle clockwise until it locks.
The handle should now be horizontal (Fig.5-5).
Run the water dispenser for 3 to 5 minutes, at one minute
intervals, to flush out the water tank.
Reset the fridge display – see ‘Fridge Freezer Controls - Water
Filter Settings’.
After installing a new water filter, discard all ice
produced during the first 24 hours.
The fridge water dispenser and ice cube maker
cannot be used without the water filter.
For filter replacement questions or information on your
appliance, contact your dealer.
Shutting Off the Refrigerator
In the event of a power cut, food should remain safely cold for
about 3 hours.
Should there be a prolonged power cut you may need to
remove food from the freezer compartment and store it in
a cold place, wrapped in layers of newspaper to preserve
suitable temperatures.
ArtNo.600-0030 - Replacing the filter 4A
Once power is restored replace the food back into the freezer
Should food begin to defrost, or the power cut last longer
than expected, it is advised that you consume any food
removed from the freezer.
If the power outage is short term, most foods can be left
inside the freezer compartment – this is the best way of
preserving temperature – and surrounded by ice cubes from
the icebox. This is also an ideal solution for power outages
you may have been pre-warned about.
When experiencing a power cut of any kind, do not add any
extra foods to the freezer.
ArtNo.600-0031 - Replacing the filter 5A
When Not in Use
If you are not using the appliance for an extended length
of time, it is recommended that you switch off the electrical
supply, empty any food out, clean the inside of the appliance
and leave the door ajar. This will save energy, and also prevent
a build up of stale odours inside.
The Light
The LED interior lights come on when the door is opened.
The performance of the light is not affected by any of the
appliances other settings.
ArtNo.600-0024 - Removing the air curtain
Air Curtain Removal and Installation
(only for servicing if needed)
Remove the water filter. Take off the fresh food light shield
and unscrew the bulb.
Using a suitable screwdriver, remove the screws of the air
curtain frame.
Take down the fresh food air curtain by using your hands to
press down on the air curtain with a little force (Fig.5-6).
Reinstall the air curtain and water filter in the reverse order.
