HOW TO OPERATE THE REFRIGERATOR/

FREEZER

Connect the appliance to the water supply and power supply

(see Installation manual).

When the appliance is connected to the power supply, two hyphens will appear on the freezer display until the optimal temperature is reached. The refrigerator display will show a temperature of 5°C (factory set).

When the appliance is warm, the red alarm LED will blink and the acoustic alarm will sound, indicating that the appliance has not yet reached the optimal temperature for storage of foodstuffs.

Press the Reset button to stop the acoustic alarm.

The red LED will stop blinking when the freezer compartment reaches a sufficiently low temperature for food storage. At this point it is possible to store food into the freezer compartment.

After being switched on, the refrigerator needs 2/3 hours to reach the correct temperature to store a typical volume of food in the refrigerator compartment.

IMPORTANT: If food is placed in the refrigerator before the appliance has cooled completely, it may deteriorate. Turning the refrigerator and freezer controls to a cooler than recommended setting will not cool the compartments any faster.

Do not place food near the air vents in the refrigerator compartment.

A built-in exterior moisture control continuously guards against moisture build-up on the front edges. Do not be alarmed if these edges sometimes feel warm to the touch.

The inside light switches on when both doors are opened.

61502008GB.fm Page 38 Friday, March 9, 2007 12:10 PM

USE OF THE ICE AND WATER DISPENSER

(ON SOME MODELS)

Your freezer dispenses both cubed and crushed ice. When the appliance is switched on, the ice maker is activated and set to the

“Ice cube” function. Its symbol lights up (yellow LED). For crushed ice, press the crushed ice button until the symbol lights up. The button controls are designed for easy use and cleaning.

To dispense ice:

1.

Press the button for the desired type of ice.

2.

Press a sturdy glass against the ice dispenser lever. Hold the glass close to the dispenser opening so ice does not fall outside of the glass.

3.

You do not need to apply a lot of pressure to the lever in order to activate the ice dispenser. Pressing hard will not make the ice dispenser operate faster or produce greater quantities of ice.

4.

To stop dispensing, remove the glass slowly so ice does not fall outside of the glass.

5.

Do not use a fine, fragile glass to collect ice.

NOTE:

The first few batches of ice cubes may have an off-taste; Throw this ice away.

Ice is dispensed from the automatic ice maker bucket in the freezer compartment. When the outside dispenser bar is pressed, a trapdoor opens between the ice bucket and the dispenser. When the glass is taken away from the dispenser bar, the trapdoor closes.

The dispenser will not operate when the freezer compartment door is open.

Large amounts of ice cubes should be taken directly from the bucket, not through the dispenser.

For crushed ice, cubes are crushed before being dispensed. This may cause a slight delay in dispensing crushed ice. Noise from the ice crusher is normal, and pieces of ice may vary in size.

When changing from crushed ice to ice cubes, a small quantity of crushed ice will be dispensed along with the first cubes.

After starting the appliance, it generally takes overnight before the first ice cubes are ready.

If the dispenser does not dispense ice when you press the bar, change the ice selection from ice cubes to crushed ice or vice versa, (see figure) so as to remove any ice blocks.

If the dispenser still does not dispense ice, wait two minutes and repeat this operation.

If there is condensation in the ice/water dispenser area, press the corresponding button (marked A in the figure) to activate the anti-condensation device.

38

61502008GB.fm Page 39 Friday, March 9, 2007 12:10 PM

To dispense water:

After the water dispenser has been switched on, throw the first glasses of water away, then the water can be used.

Repeat this operation whenever water has not been dispensed for a long time.

You do not need to apply a lot of pressure to the lever in order to activate the dispenser. Hold the edge of the glass close to the dispenser opening. Remove the glass slowly so water does not spill out of the glass.

Pressing hard will not make the water dispenser operate faster or produce greater quantities.

USE OF THE DISPENSER LIGHT AND

DISPENSER LOCK (ON SOME MODELS)

The dispenser area has a night light.

It can be turned on and off by pressing the button located at the centre of the panel.

Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent accidental dispensing by small children and pets.

To switch the dispenser off, press button until symbols

turn off.

To switch the dispenser on again, repeat the operation.

The ice maker will automatically switch off when it finishes making ice.

To turn off the water/ice dispenser, press the light button and the ice selection button simultaneously.

The light will automatically switch off when the control panel

Lock function is activated.

NOTE:

The lock feature does not shut off power to the appliance, to the ice maker or to the light. It simply deactivates the dispenser levers.

61502008GB.fm Page 40 Friday, March 9, 2007 12:10 PM

AUTOMATIC ICE MAKER

Useful hints on the automatic ice maker

To turn the ice maker on/off, press the On/Off button .

If the freezer compartment door is open, make sure the inside flap is not blocked as it serves as lock sensor that shuts off the transfer of ice from the automatic ice maker into the bucket installed in the door.

To remove and replace the ice bucket:

1.

Place four fingers in bucket base opening and rest thumb on the release button.

2.

Holding the base of the bucket with both hands, press the release button and lift the bucket up and out. It is not necessary to turn the ice maker control to the OFF position.

The ice maker will not produce ice without the bucket installed in the door.

Normal Ice Production should produce approximately 7 to

9 batches of ice in a 24-hour period.

Ice bucket care:

1.

Empty the bucket. Use warm water to melt the ice if necessary. Never use anything sharp to break up the ice in the bucket. This can cause damage to the ice bucket and the dispenser mechanism.

2.

Wash the ice bucket with a mild detergent, rinse well and dry thoroughly.

Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners or solvents.

NOTE: Do not turn the ice maker on until it is connected to the water supply.

It is normal for ice cubes to be stick together at the corners.

They can be separated easily.

The ice maker will not operate until the freezer compartment is cold enough to make ice.

This can take overnight.

Good water quality is important for good ice quality. Water softener chemicals such as salt can damage the ice maker and lead to poor quality ice.

VACATION

Short vacation

There is no need to disconnect the refrigerator from the power supply if you will be away for less than three weeks. Use up perishable food, freeze other food. If your appliance has an automatic ice maker:

1.

Turn it off;

2.

shut off the water supply to the ice maker;

3.

empty the ice bucket.

Long vacation

Remove all the food if you are going away for three weeks or more. If your appliance has an automatic ice maker, turn off the water supply to the ice maker at least a day before and as soon as the last batch of ice cubes is produced, turn off the ice maker and empty the ice bucket. Unplug the refrigerator and clean it, rinse and dry. Fix some wooden or plastic wedges to the upper part of both doors with adhesive tape and leave the doors open enough for air to circulate inside both compartments. This will prevent odour and mould from setting in.

Moving

Take out all removable parts, wrap them well, and fix them together with adhesive tape so that they do not bang together or get lost.

Tighten the front levelling screws.

Close and fix both doors with adhesive tape and, again using adhesive tape, fix the power cable to the appliance.

Power failure

In the event of a power failure, call the local office of your

Electricity Company and ask how long it is going to last.

1.

In the event of a power cut for maximum 24 hours, both

doors of the appliance must be kept closed. This will allow the stored food to stay cold as long as possible.

2.

Should the power failure last more than 24 hours, remove all frozen food and put it in a portable freezer with a key lock. If this type of freezer is not available and, likewise, no artificial ice packs are available, try to use up the food which is more easily perishable.

3.

Bear in mind that a full freezer compartment will stay cold longer than a partially filled one.

Empty the ice bucket.

Furthermore, a freezer full of frozen meat will stay cold longer than a freezer filled with pre-cooked food.

If ice crystals are still visible on the food, it may be frozen again without running any risk, although flavour and aroma are likely to be affected. If the condition of the food has deteriorated to the point that refreezing it may be it risky, throw it away.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE/AFTER-SALES

SERVICE

Before calling After-sales Service....

Performance problems often result from simple things you can find and solve yourself without tools of any kind.

If your refrigerator does not work

Is the power plug plugged into a live socket with the proper voltage?

Have you checked your home’s fuses?

If there are noises or vibrations

Most of the noises are normal. Hard surfaces like the floor, walls, and cabinets can make the noises seem louder. The following describes the most common types of noises and what may be making them.

Slight hum

You may be hearing the refrigerator's fan motor and moving air.

Clicking noises

The thermostat clicks when the refrigerator stops running and when it starts. The defrost timer clicks when the defrost cycle starts and stops.

Water noises

When the refrigerator stops running, you may hear a gurgling noise in the pipes for a few minutes.

You may also hear the defrost water running into the defrost water pan.

Ice maker noises

Since your appliance has an ice maker, you may hear buzzing (from the water valve), trickling water and the clatter of the ice falling into the bucket.

If your ice maker does not work:

Has the freezer had enough time to become cold? With a new refrigerator this may take overnight.

Is the ice maker ON/OFF button set to ON?

Is the water turned on? Is water getting to the ice maker?

Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator?

This filter may be clogged or installed incorrectly.

First, check the filter installation instructions to ensure that the filter was installed correctly and is not clogged. If installation or clogging is not a problem, call a qualified technician.

If there is water in the defrost pan:

This is normal in hot, damp weather. The pan can even be half full. Make sure the refrigerator is level so that the water does not overflow.

If the edges of the refrigerator cabinet, which come in contact with the door seal, are warm to the touch:

This is normal in hot weather when the compressor is running.

If the light does not work:

Have you checked your home’s fuses?

Is the power plug plugged into a live socket with the proper voltage?

Has the light bulb burnt out?

In the case of burned out bulbs:

1. Always remove the power plug from the socket.

2. See chapter “Maintenance and Cleaning”.

If the motor seems to run too much:

Is the condenser free of dust and fluff?

Are the doors properly closed?

Are the door seals properly fitted?

On hot days or if the room is warm, the motor naturally runs longer.

If the door has been opened a lot or if a large amount of food has been stored, the motor will run longer to cool down the interior.

44

61502008GB.fm Page 45 Friday, March 9, 2007 12:10 PM

Remember

Motor running time depends on different things: number of door openings, amount of food stored, temperature of the room, setting of the temperature controls.

If you have followed the above checks and your appliance still does not work properly, get in touch with the After-sales Service, explaining the problem and specifying the model and appliance service number (given on the data plate).

If the refrigerator temperature is too high

Are the refrigerator controls correctly set?

Has a large amount of food been added to the refrigerator or freezer?

Check that the doors are not opened too often.

Check that the doors close properly.

Make sure that air flow vents inside the compartment are not blocked, as this prevents the circulation of cold air.

If there is moisture build-up

Make sure that air flow vents inside the compartment are not blocked, as this prevents the circulation of air.

Make sure that the food is properly packaged.

Dry any dampness on food containers before placing them in the refrigerator.

Check that the doors are not opened too often.

When the door is opened, humidity from the room air enters the refrigerator. The more often the door is opened, the faster humidity builds up, especially when the room itself is very humid.

If the room is very humid, it is normal for moisture to build up inside the refrigerator.

It is normal for droplets of water to form on the back wall after the automatic defrost cycle.

If the doors do not open and close properly

Check that food packages are not blocking the door.

Check that the pans, shelves, drawers and ice maker are all positioned correctly.

Check that the door seals are not dirty or sticky.

Make sure that the refrigerator is level.

The water filter indicator light

The water filter indicator light indicates when to change the water filter cartridge. The light is located on the control panel.

When the light changes from green to yellow, this means that it is almost time to change the water filter cartridge (90% of the filter life has been used). The water filter cartridge should be replaced when the water filter indicator light changes to red. Or when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably (See “Changing a water filter cartridge” later in this section).

NOTE: Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.

After changing the water filter cartridge, reset the water filter indicator light by pressing the corresponding switch for 3 seconds.

The indicator light will change from red to green when the system is reset.

Changing a water filter cartridge

The water filter is located below the freezer compartment door.

1

Locate the water filter cartridge cap in the front base grille below the freezer compartment door. Rotate the cap counterclockwise to a vertical position and pull the cap and filter cartridge out through the base grille.

NOTE: Since the cartridge contains water, some spilling may occur.

2

Remove the cartridge cap by sliding it off the end of the old cartridge. The cap will slide to the left or right. DO NOT

DISCARD THE CAP.

3

Take the new cartridge out of its packaging and remove the protective cover from the o-rings.

4

Slide the cartridge cap onto the new cartridge as shown.

5

With cartridge cap in the vertical position, push the new filter cartridge into the base grille until it stops. Rotate the cartridge cap clockwise to a horizontal position.

6

RUN WATER THROUGH THE DISPENSER UNTIL THE

WATER RUNS CLEAR (about 9-14 litres or 6-7 minutes).

This will clean the system and clear air from the lines.

NOTE: As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out of the dispenser.

DISPOSAL OF YOUR OLD REFRIGERATOR

Entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. To a child, a scrapped or abandoned refrigerator can be dangerous even if only left unattended for a few days. Before you dispose of your refrigerator or freezer:

Take off the doors.

Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
