Installation Instructions
1. The space in the room where the
appliance is installed must not be
smaller than 10 cubic metres.
2. This appliance is designed to operate
at temperatures specified in the table
below is equipped with Advanced
Electronic Temperature Control
System [AETCS] which ensures
that at the advised setting [4 - four
on the thermostat ] the frozen food
in the freezer will not defrost even if
the ambient temperature falls as low
as -15 °C. So you may then install
your appliance in a garage or an
unheated room without having to
worry about frozen food in the freezer
being spoilt. However at low ambient
temperatures mentioned above,
fridge contents are likely to freeze,
so check and consume food in the
fridge accordingly. When the ambient
temperature returns to normal, you
may change the setting to suit your
needs. If the ambient temperature
is below 0°C, the food in the fridge
compartment will freeze.So, we
recommend you don’t use the fridge
compartment in such low ambient
conditions. You can continue using
the freezer compartment as usual.
3. Do not place the appliance near
cookers, radiators or in direct sunlight
as this will cause your appliance to
work harder. If installed next to a
source of heat or freezer, maintain the
following minimum side clearances:
From Cookers 50 mm (2”)
From Radiators 300 mm (12”)
From Freezers 25 mm (1”)
7. A special receptacle is supplied to
store the mains plug during transit.
The receptacle is fixed at the back
of the cabinet, on the side of the
compressor. (See diagram) Gently
remove the plug from the receptacle.
Never pull the mains cord, you may
damage the appliance. In the case
of transportation, ensure you locate
the plug in the receptacle provided to
avoid transit damage.
4. 4. Make sure that sufficient room is
provided around the appliance to
ensure free air circulation. Fit the two
plastic wall spacers supplied with the
appliance to the condenser on the
back of the appliance by rotating 1/4
turn. (See Diagram).
5. The fridge/freezer should be located
on a smooth surface. The two front
feet can be adjusted as required. To
ensure that your appliance is standing
upright adjust the two front feet by
turning clockwise or anti-clockwise,
until the product is in firm contact with
the floor. Correct adjustment of feet
avoids excessive vibration and noise.
6. Refer to cleaning and care section to
prepare your appliance for use.
Replacing the interior light bulb
Should the light fail to work, proceed
as follows.
1. Switch off at the socket outlet and
pull out the mains plug.
• You may find it useful to remove
shelves for easy access.
2. Use a flat tipped screwdriver to
remove the light diffuser cover by
inserting the blade in each of the two
recesses to prise off each side.
3. First check that the bulb hasn’t
worked loose by ensuring it is
screwed securely in the holder.
Replace the plug and switch on. If the
bulb works, replace the light cover by
inserting the rear lug and pushing up
to locate the front two lugs.
4. If the light still fails to work, switch off
at the socket outlet and pull out the
mains plug. Replace the bulb with a

Final Check
Before you start using the fridge/
freezer check that:
1. The feet have been adjusted for
perfect levelling.
2. The interior is dry and air can circulate
freely at the rear of the cabinet.
3. Clean the interior as recommended
4. Insert the plug into the wall socket
and switch on the electricity supply.
• When the door is open the fridge
interior light will come on.
5. You will hear a noise as the
compressor starts up. The liquid and
gases sealed within the refrigeration
system may also give rise to noise,
whether the compressor is running
or not which is quite normal.“Due
to operation of the fan inside the
frost free freezer compartment,
overall noise level is slightly higher
in comparison to non-frost free
appliances. This is quite normal and
is not a fault.”
6. Set the thermostat half way between
1 and 5.
7. Front edges of the cabinet may feel
warm. This is normal. These areas
are designed to be warm to avoid
8. “Do not load the appliance
immediately it is switched on. Wait
until the correct storage temperature has been reached.
We recommend that you check
the temperature with an accurate
thermometer (see; Temperature
Control and Adjustment)”
5 Using your refrigerator
Temperature Control And Adjustment
Operating temperatures are controlled
by the thermostat (see diagram) located
on the ceiling of fridge compartment.
Settings may be made from 1 to 5, 5
being 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 you
set the thermostat half way between
the 1 and 5 setting and monitor to
obtain the desired temperature i. e.
towards 5 you will obtain a colder fridge
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.
The normal storage temperature of the
freezer should be -18°C (0°F). Lower
temperatures may be obtained by
adjusting the thermostat towards 5
We recommend that you check
the temperature with an accurate
thermometer to ensure that the storage
compartments are kept to the desired
Remember you must take your reading
very quickly since the thermometer
temperature will rise very rapidly after
you remove it from the freezer.
Please remember each time the door
is opened cold air escapes and the
internal temperature rises. Therefore
never leave the door open and ensure
it is closed immediately after food is put
in or removed.
In case of a temporary ice build up
in the fridge compartment, reduce the
thermostat setting to 1, monitoring
at the same time that the fridge
temperature is maximum +5 degrees
C [41 degrees F]. Once the ice build
up disappears and the appliance
starts auto defrosting again as normal,
then you may increase the thermostat
setting, if required.
Suggested Arrangement Of
Food In The Fridge/Freezer
Arrangement Examples (See diagram)
1. Baked, chilled cooked food, dairy
products, cans.
2. Meat, sausages, cold cuts.
3. Fruit, vegetables, salads.
4. Making, storing ice cubes.
5. Frozen food.
6. Frozen food and freezing of fresh

recommendations are suggested to
obtain the best
results and storage hygiene.
1. The fridge compartment is for the
short term storage of fresh food and
2. The freezer compartment is
rated and suitable for the freezing
and storage of pre frozen food. The
recommendation for
as stated on the food packaging
should be observed at all times.
3. Cooked dishes must be stored in
airtight covered containers.
4. Fresh wrapped produce can be
placed on the shelf. Fresh fruit and
vegetables should be cleaned and
stored in the crisper bins.
5. Bottles can be placed in the door
6. To store raw meat, wrap in polythene
bags and place on the lowest
shelf. Do not allow to come into
contact with cooked food to avoid
contamination. For safety, only store
raw meat for two to three days.
7. Keep the food packed wrapped
or covered. Allow hot food and
beverages to cool before placing
them in the fridge. Do not store
explosive substances. High proof
alcohol must be stored upright in
sealed containers. Left over canned
food should not be stored in the can.
8. Fizzy drinks should not be frozen and
products such as flavoured water
ices should not be consumed too
9. Some fruit and vegetables suffer
damage if kept at temperatures near
0°C. Therefore wrap pineapples,
melons, cucumbers, tomatoes and
similar produce in polythene bags.
10. Place chilled cooked food and similar
food near the rear of the fridge inner
liner where the cold wall is located.
11.Shelves, racks, crisper bins,
drawers, flaps, bottle grippers are all
12.Do not leave frozen food at room
temperature to thaw; the best way to
defrost food is to put it in the fridge
to thaw slowly. Make sure you avoid
defrosting food or food juices drip
onto other food.
13.For hygiene reasons, always wrap
food using a suitable packaging
material before storing in your
appliance to avoid contact with the
appliance surface.
Storing Frozen Food
Prepacked commercially frozen food
should be stored in accordance with
frozen food manufacturer’s instructions
for a
frozen food storage
To ensure that the high quality achieved
by the frozen food manufacturer and
food retailer is maintained, the
following should be remembered:
1. Put packets in the freezer as quickly
as possible after purchase.
2. Ensure that contents are labelled and
3. Do not exceed “Use By”, “Best
Before” dates on the packaging.
If there is a power failure do not open
the door. Frozen food should not be
affected if the failure lasts for less than
13 hrs. If the failure is longer, then the
food should be checked and either
eaten immediately or cooked and then
Freezing Fresh Food
instructions to obtain the best results.
Do not freeze too large a quantity at
any one time. The quality of the food
is best preserved when it is frozen
right through to the core as quickly as
Placing warm food into the freezer
compartment causes the refrigeration
compressor to operate continuously
until the food is frozen solid. This can
temporarily lead to excessive cooling of
the refrigeration compartment.
When freezing fresh food turn the
setting towards. Max small quantities of
food up to 1/2 kg. (1 lb) can be frozen
without having to rotate the temperature
You may place fresh food to be frozen
in any part of the freezer.
Take special care not to mix already
frozen food and fresh food.
Making Ice Cubes
Fill the ice - cube tray 3/4 full with
water and place it in the Ice Bank.
Loosen frozen trays with the handle of a
spoon, never use sharp edged objects
such as knives, forks. Store ice-cubes
in the Ice Bank.
Note: If freshly made ice cubes are
not consumed for several weeks and
stored in Ice Bank, they will slowly
reduce in size and eventually disappear
A) Fridge Compartment
The fridge compartment defrosts
automatically. The defrosting water
runs to the drain tube via a collection
container at the back of the appliance
(1).(see diagram) During defrosting
water droplets may form at the back of
the fridge compartment
where 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, forks to
remove the droplets which have frozen.
If at any time the defrost water does
not drain from the collection channel,
check to ensure 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 (2). If the frost layer
reaches about 1/4”(7 mm), reduce
the setting (i.e. from 4 to 1) to restart
automatic defrosting.

Water Dispenser
The water dispenser is a very useful
feature allowing cold water on tap
without opening the door of your
refrigerator .As you will not have to
open your refrigerator door frequently,
you will have saved energy.
As the level of the water in your glass/
container rises, slightly lessen the
pressure on the arm to prevent the
overspill. If you slightly press the arm,
the water will drip; this is quite normal
and not a failure.

damaged if these kinds of liquids are
used. Warranty does not cover such
usages. Some chemical substances
and additives contained in these
kinds of drinks/liquids may damage
the water tank.
• Use clean and pure drinking water
• Capacity of the water tank is 2.2
Litres (3.8 pints); do not overfill.

Cleaning the water tank

tank by opening latches at both sides.

(if any) during cleaning are properly
attached to their original places.
Otherwise, water leakage may occur.
