General information
This appliance is designed for the refrigeration of food
in a domestic home, the storage of frozen foods in the
two-star compartment and the production of ice
cubes.
To ensure correct operation, the appliance should
be located where the ambient temperature is
between 16 - 38 °C.

Using the appliance
Before first use
Model
Remove all securing tapes.
Wash the inside of the appliance with lukewarm water
to which a little bicarbonate of soda added (5 ml to 0.5
litre of water). Do not use soap or detergent as the
smell may linger. Dry the appliance thoroughly.
If the ambient
temperature is
greater than
Position of
drip tray
160 RA
+ 25 °C
Open (pos. 1)
Do not use detergents, abrasive powders,
highly perfumed cleaning products, wax
polishes or products containing alcohol.
To start the appliance
1. Allow the appliance to stand for 2 hours after
installation.
2. Plug in the appliance and switch on at the mains
supply.
3. Turn the thermostat control to the required setting.
A setting of 3 is usually suitable for normal
operation (see thermostat control).
4. Leave the appliance for approximately 4 hours for
the correct temperature to be reached before
placing food inside.
Thermostat Control
The thermostat control situated inside the refrigerator
regulates the temperature of the appliance. The
thermostat control is marked from 1-5, the highest
number being the coldest setting.
Position 0 Position 1 Position 5 -
Off
Cold
Coldest
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the cabinet depends on the following factors:
room temperature
how often the door is opened
how much food is stored
position of the appliance
6
The temperature inside the refrigerator and the twostar compartment can be regulated by adjusting the
tray located under the two-star compartment.
To obtain a lower temperature in the two-star
compartment when frozen food is stored inside and
when the ambient temperature is 25 °C or lower
push the tray in position 2. When frozen food is
stored and the ambient temperature is higher than
25 °C pull the tray out to position 1.
If frozen food is stored in the 2-star compartment
and the ambient temperature is above 25°C, pull
the tray out to position 1 and turn the thermostat
control to a colder setting (higher number). When
the ambient temperature falls below 25°C turn the
thermostat control back to a medium setting and
push the tray into position 2.
Making Ice Cubes
Fill the ice cube tray supplied with the appliance 3/4
full with water and place it in the two-star
compartment. Turning the thermostat control knob to
a colder setting will speed up this process, but
remember to return to its original position after.
To release the ice cubes, twist the tray along its
length.
Normal operating sounds
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when
the refrigerant is pumped to the cooling plate through
the coils or tubing at the rear.
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being
pumped round, and you will hear a whirring sound or
pulsating noise from the compressor.
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you will
hear a faint 'click' when the thermostat cuts in and out.
Defrosting
Regular defrosting is necessary to ensure efficient
operation of the appliance.
It is recommended that the two-star compartment is
defrosted fortnightly or when the frost is more than 45 mm thick.
Frost will build up in the frozen food compartment due
to the moisture in the air which enters the refrigerator
compartment when the door is opened and from
moisture in the stored food.
Empty the two-star compartment.
Push the drip tray into the closed position.
Push in the defrosting button in the centre of the
thermostat control knob.
Leave the appliance door open.
The frost will melt away and the defrost water will
collect in the drip tray.
Place a container beneath the tray and remove the
bung. Remember to replace the bung when the
water has drained away.
Wipe the interior of the two-star compartment dry.

Useful inf or mation and advice
Hints for storage
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do cover
or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong flavour.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective material,
such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which may
obstruct air circulation through them.
Below is the recommended storage positions for
various food types:
1. Frozen food storage and ice making
2. Ready cooked foods, convenience foods
3. Foods in dishes
4. Opened cans
5. Milk, dairy products
6. Fresh meat, cold cuts etc
7. Fruit, vegetables and salads
8. Cheese and butter
9. Eggs
10. Yoghurt and cream
11. Small bottles, soft drinks
12. Large bottles, drinks
Do not allow fresh food to come into contact with
foods that are already frozen.
Storing food in the fresh food compartment
The following tips should help you to ensure that
the food in your home is in as perfect condition as
possible.
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your fridge as short as possible.
Tests showed that the temperature of 1 litre of
orange juice rose to 22 °C in an hour between
the supermarket and home. It then took 11
hours to get down to 7 °C in the refrigerator.
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as
possible.
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do
NOT place in the refrigerator until cool. (Leave
food in a cool place in order that it can be placed
in the refrigerator as soon as possible).
Do NOT mix raw and cooked meat, they must be
separate containers. Take care not to let the
meat juices drip onto other food. If the meat
does drip, remove everything and clean
thoroughly.
Do not store food uncovered.
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean the interior (see „Maintenance &
Cleaning”).
Never allow spills to dry and harden.
Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the
refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped
eggs.
Regularly check the door seal to ensure that it is
free from debris.
Always wash your hands in soapy water and dry
them with a clean towel before handling food.
Storing food in the two-star compartment
The two-star compartment is separated from the fresh
food compartment by the drip tray.
Depending on the position of the thermostat control
knob and the temperature in the compartment ( -12 °C
or lower), frozen food can be stored here.
Small quantities of fresh food can be frozen in the twostar compartment but storing them for a long period of
time is not recommended.

Keep work surfaces clean and avoid cross
contamination by not using the same work
surface or knife, without washing them
thoroughly in between.

transport.
Energy use is affected by the ambient temperature.
The appliance should therefore:
Remove all packaging and adhesive tape.
Any remnants of packaging can be removed using
white spirit.
After transportation the appliance must not be
switched on for 2 hours, this is to allow the
refrigerant to settle.
Cleaning

temperature corresponds to the climate
classification, for which the appliance is
designed.
The climate classification can be found on the
rating plate.
The following table shows which ambient
temperature is correct for each climate
classification.
Climate Classification Ambient Temperature
SN
+10 to +32°C
