Cleaning Clean the refrigerator thoroughly at intervals, as necessary. Remove the shelves; these, the cabinet interior and the door should be washed with a warm solution of sodium bi-carbonate. Finally wipe over with a cloth rinsed in warm water only, and dry with a clean cloth. Do not wash any plastic parts in water that is more than hand warm, and do not expose them to dry heat. The outside of the cabinet should be wiped down regularly with a clean, damp cloth. NEVER USE STRONG CHEMICALS OR ABRASIVE CLEANING MATERIALS ON ANY PART OF THE CABINET. The miniCool achieves its operating temperature after several hours. 5.2. Temperature regulation The usual setting required is in the region of the middle of the thermostat knob (Fig. 6), but this can vary with conditions of load and installation. If it is found necessary to alter the setting,the knob can be turned to a higher symbol to produce a colder temperature, or a lower symbol to produce a warmer temperature. The effect of any adjustment can be checked by means of a thermometer after leaving the refrigerator operating for a further period to settle down again. 4. Positioning the appliance When first using this refrigerator please consider the following points: ENSURE REFRIGERATOR IS LEVEL THE PIPEWORK AT THE BACK GETS HOT IN USE THE REFRIGERATOR HAS NO 'MOTOR' AND IS THEREFORE VIRTUALLY SILENT ALLOW AT LEAST 3 HRS. FOR SIGNS OF COOLING During the refrigeration process, the appliance gives off heat from the condenser (under the upper part of the rear cover) into the surrounding air. The more ventilated the condenser is, the more effective the refrigeration will be. The other condition for satisfactory operation is that the appliance stands on a flat surface. This is best seen by placing a glass of water on top of the appliance. It is important that the appliance is not directly exposed to radiated heat (sunlight, radiator, near an oven, etc.). Please do not place the refrigerator onto thick carpet! 4.1. Installation instructions This version is supposed to be freestanding. Cooling unit room cover protects from the hot parts of the cooling unit. Foot frame with grilles ensures sufficient ventilation. 5. Using the appliance To start the refrigerator connect the plug to the socket outlet and switch on the socket. The cooling fins should show signs of cooling after about 1-2 hours depending on ambiant temperature. 5.1. Initial operation The device must be plugged into a properly earthed socket. The miniCool starts automatically with a self-test. The LED illuminates after plugging-in several times and after that continuous light can be seen if the door is open. Figure 3. 6. Thermometer (Fig. 4) Refer to the separate instruction leaflet supplied with the thermometer. The thermometer can be stood up using the attached stand or alternatively it can be fixed to the refrigerator door, in which case the sensor wire should be arranged so that it is not stretched or damaged when the door is opened. The temperature sensor is located inside the refrigerator in the upper left corner in front of the evaporator. The display will then show the current, maximum and minimum temperature inside the refrigerator. After the first pull down of the refrigerator (allow four hours) please make a "reset" on the thermometer because otherwise it will keep as "maximum" the ambient temperature. If you find lower than +2 °C or even negative temperature as a minimum on the screen, it must have occured due to a cutout in the electrical circuit. In these circumstance's the electronic thermostat will make a restart and start to cool down the refrigerator, without monitoring the refrigerator for 45 minutes. If you reset the thermometer again (1-2 hours later) and the normal +2 ... +8 °C is shown then you can be sure that the medincines have not been damaged or frozen. The more medicines you store in the refrigerator then reduces the hazard of freezing, if the unit has a short period of time undercooling. We take no responsibility for damage to vaccines through freezing, if there has been a cutout in the electricity for a short period of time. It is important to reset the thermometer regularly to ensure that the temperature is maintained between 2 °C and 8 °C. 5 The temperature readings may rise temporarily after opening the door or placing additional items inside the cabinet. On the thermometer the battery transit strip must be removed to activate the temperature display. C 9. Interior light Two light-emitting diodes (A) on an electronic PCB illuminate the cooling compartment when the door is opened. Two sensors (B) control whether the door is open or not and the LEDs will work accordingly. B A Figure 6. 10. Reversing the door hang, Figure 4. 7. Useful suggestion Do not overfill the appliance. It is advisable to leave some space between the products in the cabinet to ensure efficient and even cooling. If the shelves are packed too tightly there may be unacceptable temperature variations. 8. Defrosting, cleaning and maintenance Frost will gradually form on the cooling surfaces and it must not be allowed to become too thick since it acts as an insulator and interferes with the cooling. We recommend to defrost the appliance in every 3 weeks, or depending on the ice quantity on the cooling fins. While defrosting the appliance should be switched off by disconnecting the refrigerator from the electricity supply and leave the cabinet door open. The frost will melt and the defrost water will run through the drain tube from the drip channel into an evaporating vessel located at the bottom rear of the refrigerator. (Fig 5.) After defrosting the cabinet interior should be wiped out with a clean, damp cloth. Figure 5. 6 (Fig. 7-8.) Disconnect at the mains. Lay the appliance on its side. Loosen up 7 screws (1) of footframe and remove the footframe. Put the fridge on a desk to ease the work. Open the door and snap out the fixing tab (2) of the upper hinge pin by the help of screwdriver and push out the pin. (fig. 8.) Remove the door and the hinge washer. Remove the bottom hinge pin (3) and the upper and lower hinge plug (4) in the same way as in case of the upper hinge pin. Snap in the lower hinge pin (3) to the desired side. Put back the door and the hinge washer and snap in the upper hinge pin (2). Snap in the 2 hinge plugs (4) too. Put back the footframe with its screws. Figure 7. (Details of the model, product- and serialnumber are to be found on the data label in the top left of the inside compartment.) This refrigerator is equipped with overheating protection. An authorised service technician can check whether this has been triggered or not. In the event of a fault developing, contact your nearest Service Centre-see local telephone directory. 13.

Check the fuses. Is the plug firmly connected to the socket and is the socket switched on? Check the socket by plugging in another appliance, e.g. a table lamp. Is the thermostat at the correct setting? Has the door not been closed properly causing the inside temperature to rise too quickly? Is the refrigerator level? Has the ventilation become obstructed? If after checking all the above points, the refrigerator is still not working satisfactorily, contact your nearest service engineer. State the problem, model, productand serial-number.
