INSTALLATION
Location
When selecting a position for your unit you should make sure the floor is flat and firm, and
the room is well ventilated with an average room temperature of between 16°C and 32°C.
Avoid locating your unit near a heat source, e.g. cooker, boiler or radiator. Also avoid direct
sunlight as it may increase the electrical consumption. Extreme cold ambient temperatures
may also cause the unit not to perform properly. This unit is not designed for use in a garage
or outdoor installation. Do not drape the unit with any covering.
When installing the unit, ensure that 2 cm of free space is left at both sides and 3 cm at the
rear of the unit. Please ensure there is adequate space for the door to fully open.
Levelling the Unit
To do this use the two levelling feet at the front of the unit.
If the unit is not level, the doors and magnetic seal
alignments will not be covered properly.
Cleaning Before Use
Wipe the inside of the unit with a weak solution of bicarbonate soda. Then rinse with warm
water using a ‘wrung-out’ sponge or cloth. Wipe completely dry before replacing the shelves
and salad bin. Clean the exterior of the unit with a damp cloth.
If you require more information refer to the Cleaning section.
• Before Plugging in YOU MUST
Check that you have a socket which is compatible with the plug supplied with the
unit.
• Before Turning On!
Do not turn on until two hours after moving the unit. The coolant fluid needs time
to settle.
Before Using Your Unit
Before placing any food in your unit, turn it on and wait for 24 hours, to make sure it is
working properly and to allow it time to fall to the correct temperature. Your unit should not
be overfilled.

Operation
Switching On Your Unit
1. Connect the mains cable to the mains socket. The
internal temperature of your unit is controlled by
a thermostat. There are seven settings, of which
position 6 is the coldest and position OFF turns
the unit off.
2. Adjust the thermostat control dial to the desired
position, bear in mind that the higher the
number, the lower the temperature. Position 4
is the recommended setting when operating at
normal room temperature (between 16°C and
32°C).
3. The unit may not operate at the correct
temperature if it is in a particularly hot or a
particularly cold room, or if you open the doors
often.
4. To ensure that the unit is cool enough to
sufficiently chill and freeze your food wait 24
hours before filling it with food.
5. If you are concerned that your unit is not
being kept cold enough and wish to check the
temperature you will need a special fridge/
freezer thermometer. These are available from
most supermarkets and hardware shops. Place
the thermometer in either the fridge or freezer
compartment and leave overnight. The correct
temperature for the fridge compartment should
be an average of 5°C. The correct temperature
for the freezer compartment should be -18°C or
lower.
Adjusting the Temperature
The internal temperature of the unit is controlled by a thermostat. The recommended position
is between 1 to 4 for colder working environments (i.e. during winter) and between 5 to 6 for
hotter environments. Please adjust according to the environment.

Noises Inside the Unit!
You may notice that your unit makes some unusual noises. Most of these are perfectly normal,
but you should be aware of them!
These noises are caused by the circulation of the refrigerant liquid in the cooling system. It has
become more pronounced since the introduction of CFC free gases. This is not a fault and will
not affect the performance of your unit. This is the compressor motor working, as it pumps the
refrigerant around the system.
Shopping for Chilled Foods
• Take a quick look at the chilled food package and make sure it is in perfect condition.
• Try to keep chilled food together whilst shopping and on the journey home as this will help
to keep the food cold.
• Don’t buy chilled food unless you can chill it straight away. Specially insulated bags can be
bought from most supermarkets and hardware shops. These bags can keep chilled food cold
for longer while transporting.
• Food that has been left in a car or at room temperature for a prolonged period of time could
raise the food temperature to a dangerous level, which allows harmful bacteria to grow.
• Always unpack and place chilled food in the unit before storing dry food.
Tips for Keeping Food Perfect in the Unit
• Cooked meats/fishes should always be stored on a shelf above raw meats/fishes to avoid
bacterial transfer. Keep raw meats/fishes in a container which is large enough to collect
juices and cover it properly. Place the container on the lowest shelf at the bottom of the
fridge compartment.
• Leave space around your food, to allow air to circulate inside the compartments. Ensure all
parts of the unit are kept cool.
• To prevent transfer of flavours and drying out, pack or cover the food separately. Fruit and
vegetables do not need to be wrapped.
• Always let pre-cooked food cool down before you put in the unit. This will help to maintain
the internal temperature of the unit.
• To prevent cold air escaping from the unit, try to limit the number of times you open the
doors. We recommend that you only open the doors when you need to put food in or take
food out.
Shopping for Frozen Foods
• The freezer compartment is 4-star
.
When you are buying frozen food, check the storage guidelines on the packaging. You will
be able to store each item of frozen food for the period shown against the 4-star rating. This
is usually the period stated as “Best before” on the front of the packaging. The maximum
freezing capacity of this freezer is 2.0kg in 24 hours. Do not place fresh food into the freezer
compartment with combined weight that exceeds 2.0kg.
• Check the temperature of the frozen food cabinet in the shop where you buy your frozen
foods. It should show a temperature lower than -18°C.
• Take a quick look at the frozen food package and make sure it is in perfect condition.
• Always buy frozen products last on your shopping trip or visit to the supermarket. Try to
keep frozen food together whilst shopping and on the journey home as this will help to keep
the food frozen.
• Don’t buy frozen food unless you can freeze it straight away. Specially insulated bags can
be bought from most supermarkets and hardware shops. These bags can keep frozen food
frozen longer.

Preparations for Freezing
• Use quality food and handle it as little as possible. Freeze food in small quantities as it freezes
faster, takes less time to defrost and enables you to control the quantity you need better.
• Leave cooked food to cool completely. Chill food before freezing if possible.
• Consider how you will want to cook the food before freezing it.
• Don’t freeze food in metal containers if you may want to microwave it straight from the
freezer.
• Use special freezer bags, freezer film, polythene bags, plastic containers, and aluminium foil
(heavy duty grade only). If in doubt, double wrap your food. Don’t use aluminium foil for
acidic foods, e.g. citrus fruits. Don’t use thin cling film, glass, or used food containers without
cleaning.
• Exclude as much air from the container as possible. You could buy a special vacuum pump
which sucks excessive air out of the packaging.
• Leave a small amount of air space when freezing liquids to allow expansion.
• You can use the space in the freezer most efficiently if you freeze liquids (or
solids with liquids, e.g. stew) in square blocks. This is known as “Preforming”.
Pour the liquid into a polythene bag which is inside a square sided
container. Freeze it, and then remove it from the container and seal the
bag.
• Label your frozen foods as they will look the same when in frozen state.
Use special fridge freezer tapes, labels and pens with different colours. This
allows you to easily organise and to effectively use the freezer. Write the
contents and date; otherwise the frozen food might exceed the storage
time and this could cause food poisoning. Please refer to your food
packaging for the recommended storage time.
• You may also add the weight and cooking notes, e.g. “defrost first”, “cook from frozen” and
keep a separate log of what is in each drawer. This will save opening the door and searching
around unnecessarily.
Defrosting Frozen Food
1. Take the frozen food out from the freezer compartment and uncover the frozen food. Let
it defrost at room temperature. Don’t forget that defrosting in a warm area encourages the
growth of bacteria and low temperature cooking may not destroy dangerous bacteria.
2. Drain off and throw away any liquid lost during defrosting.
3. Always make sure there are no ice-crystals in the food before cooking, particularly with meat.
These crystals indicate that the food has not fully defrosted.
4. Cook food as soon as possible after defrosting.
5. Many microwaves and ovens have a defrost setting. To avoid bacterial build up, only use
these if you intend to cook the food immediately afterwards.
Never refreeze anything that has been defrosted out unless you cook it again, to kill
off harmful bacteria. Never re-freeze defrosted shellfish. Re-seal packs properly after
removing items. This prevents drying or freezer-burn and a build up of frost on any
remaining food.

Cleaning
Defrosting
Frost might build up in the freezer compartment after the unit has been used for a period of
time. Scrape away the frost using a plastic scraper.
Do not use a metal or sharp instrument to scrap away the frost, nor should you use any
electrical appliances to aid defrosting.
We recommend that defrosting should be carried out when the frost layer builds up to 3cm
(~1.18”). Choose a time when the stock of frozen food is low, follow these procedures:
1. Take out the food, turn the unit off at the mains supply and leave the door open. Ideally, the
frozen food should be put into another freezer. If this is not possible, wrap the food in several
sheets of newspaper or large towels and then a thick rug or blanket to keep it cool.
2. Place a shallow bowl or pan below the freezer compartment. Scrap
away the frost using the plastic scraper. Defrosting the remaining frost
can be speeded up by placing a bowl of hot water inside the freezer
compartment cabinet and closing the door. As the solid frost loosens,
scrap it away with the plastic scraper and remove.
3. When defrosting is complete, clean your unit’s interior and exterior.
Cleaning the Interior and the Exterior of the Unit
• Remove all the shelves and salad bin before cleaning. To remove the salad bin first remove
the lower fridge door shelf.
• Wipe the inside of the unit with a weak solution of bicarbonate soda and then rinse with
warm water using a ‘wrung-out’ sponge or cloth. Wipe completely dry before replacing the
shelves and salad bin.
• Use a damp cloth to clean the exterior, and then wipe with a standard furniture polish. Make
sure that the doors are closed to avoid the polish getting on the magnetic door seals or
inside the fridge/freezer compartments.
• The grille of the condenser at the back of the unit and the adjacent components can be
vacuumed using a soft brush attachment.
Cleaning Tips
Condensation may appear on the outside of the unit. This maybe due to a change in room
temperature. Wipe off any moisture residue. If the problem continues, please contact a qualified
technician for assistance.

Care When Handling / Moving the Unit
Hold the unit around its sides or base when moving it. Under no circumstances should it be
lifted by holding the edges of the top surface.
Servicing
The unit should be serviced by an authorised engineer and only genuine spare parts should be
used. Under no circumstances should you attempt to repair the unit yourself. Repairs carried
out by inexperienced persons may cause injury or serious malfunction. Contact a qualified
technician.
Switching Off for Long Periods of Time
When the unit is not in use for a long period of time, disconnect it from the mains supply, empty
all food and clean the unit, leaving the door ajar to prevent unpleasant smells.
Disposal
Old units still have some residual value. An environmentally friendly method of disposal will
ensure that valuable raw materials can be recovered and used again. The refrigerant used in the
unit and insulation materials require special disposal procedures. Ensure that none of the pipes
on the back of the unit are damaged prior to disposal.
Up to date information concerning options of disposing of your old unit and packaging from
the new one can be obtained from your local council office.
When disposing of an old unit break off any old locks or latches and remove the doors as a
safeguard.

way, searching for an item will mean
the door is open for longer.
Allow hot food and drinks to cool
down before placing them in the
unit.
Placing hot food in the unit will cause
the compressor to run for a long
time, as the unit will have to work
harder to lower the temperature.
Store food covered or packaged.
The evaporation or condensation of
liquids will cause a loss of coldness in
the unit.
Do not over-fill the unit to allow air
to circulate.
Defrosting
Defrost the freezer compartment
when a layer of ice 3 cm thick has
built up.
A layer of ice hinders the cold from
reaching the frozen food, and causes
an increase in energy consumption.
