Installation instructions
1. Do not keep your appliance in a room where
the temperature is likely to fall below 10 degrees
C (50 degrees F) at night and/or especially in
winter, as it is designed to operate in ambient
temperatures between +10 and +32 degrees
C (50 and 90 degrees F). At lower temperatures
the appliance may not operate, resulting in a
reduction in the storage life of the food.
Transportation
instructions
1. The appliance should be transported only
in a upright position. The packing as supplied
must be intact during transportation.
2. If during the course of transport the appliance,
has been positioned horizontally, it must not
be operated for at least 4 hours, to allow the
system tosettle.
3. Failure to comply with the above instructions
could result in damage to the appliance, for
which the manufacturer will not be held liable.
4. The appliance must be protected against
rain, moisture and other atmospheric influences.
2. Do not place the appliance near cookers

Temperature control
and adjustment
Before operating
Final Check
Before you start using the appliance check that:
Operating temperatures are controlled by the
thermostat knob (Fig. 2) and may be set
between 1 and 5, the coldest position.
When the appliance is switched on for the first
time, the thermostat should be adjusted so that,
after 24 hours, the average fridge temperature
is no higher than +5°C (+41°F ).
We recommend setting the thermostat half-way
between the 1 and 5 setting and monitoring to
obtain the desired temperature i. e. towards 5
you will obtain a lower temperature and vice
versa. Some sections of the fridge may be
cooler or warmer ( such as the salad crisper
and the top part of the cabinet ) which is quite
normal.
In ambient temperatures above 25°C (77°F),
especially in summer, turn the thermostat knob
towards 5. In ambient temperatures below
25°C (77°F) turn the thermostat knob to a half
way position.
Frequent door opening causes internal
temperatures to rise, so it is advisable to close
as soon as possible after use.
1. The feet have been adjusted for perfect
levelling.
2. The interior is dry and air can circulate freely
at the rear.
3. The interior is clean as recommended under
"Cleaning and care.”
4. The plug has been inserted into the wall
socket and the electricity is switched on. When
the door is open the interior light will come on.
And note that:
5. You will hear a noise as the compressor
starts up. The liquid and gases sealed within
the refrigeration system may also make some
(noise), whether the compressor is running or
not. This is quite normal.
6. We recommend setting the thermostat knob
midway and monitor the temperature to ensure
the appliance maintains desired storage
temperatures (See section Temperature Control
and Adjustment).
7. Do not load the appliance immediately it is
switched on. Wait until the correct storage
temperature has been reached. We recommend
checking the temperature with an accurate
thermometer (see; Temperature Control and
Adjustment).

Defrosting
Getting to know your
appliance
The larder refrigerator defrosts automatically.
The defrosting water runs to the drain tube via
a collection channel and is evaporated in a
special container at the back of the appliance.
During defrosting, water droplets may form at
the back of the larder refrigerator where a
concealed evaporator is located. Some droplets
may remain on the liner and refreeze when
defrosting is completed. Do not use pointed or
sharp-edged objects such as knives or forks to
remove the droplets which have refrozen.
If, at any time, the defrost water does not drain
from the collection channel, check that no food
particles have blocked the drain tube. The drain
tube can be cleared by pushing the special
plastic plunger provided down the
drain tube (Fig. 3).
