OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR LABCOLD SPARKFREE LABORATORY
REFRIGERATOR MODEL RLPR02042
Please read and follow these instructions carefully before use.
LOCATION
Your refrigerator should be installed with a minimum of 25mm (1-inch) clear space at the top and
sides to allow the warm air from the condenser in the rear of the refrigerator, to circulate freely. It is
also important that the refrigerator is not directly exposed to external sources heat (sunlight,
radiator, near an oven, etc.) Similarly an excessively cold location (below 16oC) is also
undesirable and may lead to incorrect operation or defrosting. The refrigerator cabinet should
stand level or with a slight tilt backwards. It must not tilt forward as this could affect door sealing
and closing.
BEFORE STARTING
It is recommended that you clean the interior and exterior of your refrigerator prior to use as dust
and contaminants from the packaging may have accumulated during transit or storage. (See
paragraph “Cleaning Your Refrigerator).
Please check the voltage indicated at the back of your refrigerator conforms to your local electricity
supply: failure to do so may invalidate the Guarantee.
If this unit is supplied in UK/ Irish specification then the correct voltage is 220 – 240 volts A.C. 50
Hz and a 3 - pin, 13 amp fused plug is fitted to the mains lead.
IMPORTANT – This appliance must be earthed
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following codes:Blue
- Neutral
Brown
- Live
Green and Yellow - Earth
SAFETY NOTES:
• This product is designed for operation by adults. Children should not be allowed to tamper
with the controls or play with the product.
• A qualified electrician should carry out any electrical work required to install this refrigerator.
• An authorised Service Engineer should service this product, and only genuine spare parts
should be used.
• It is dangerous to alter the specifications or modify this product in any way.
• Care must be taken to ensure that the refrigerator does not stand on the electrical supply
cable.
• The refrigeration system is Ammonia free and does not contain any CFC`s.
• Some noise can be expected from the refrigeration compressor and the associated
pipework. The sound of liquid in the system is perfectly normal.
• There are working parts in this product, which heat up. Always ensure that there is
adequate ventilation, as a failure to do this will result in component failure and possible
content loss.
• Before defrosting, cleaning or maintenance work is carried out, be sure to switch off the
refrigerator and unplug it.
• DO NOT USE SHARP INSTRUMENTS to scrape off frost or ice. Solid ice should be
allowed to thaw when defrosting the refrigerator.
• This refrigerator is heavy. Care should be taken when moving it.
• Under no circumstances should you attempt to repair the refrigerator yourself. Repairs
carried out by inexperienced persons may cause injury or more serious malfunctioning.
Refer to your local Service Centre.
TO START
Plug the mains lead of your refrigerator into a suitable socket. Switch on electrical supply and
allow the refrigerator to operate for 24 hours before adjustment of temperature or loading.
REGULATION OF OPERATING TEMPERATURE
A thermostat controls the refrigerator temperature, which can be adjusted if necessary using the
control dial located within the chamber (see image below). The operating temperature will have
been pre-set to 4oC during manufacture and should not normally require adjustment. However the
factory setting may have altered during transit and should be checked and adjusted as necessary
before loading. The range of settings is from No.1 (warmest) to No.6 (coldest) on the control dial
and adjustment of temperature is performed as follows:
Warmer
Colder
Off
- Turn control knob to the LEFT (anti-clockwise)
- Turn control knob to the RIGHT (clockwise)
- Turn fully to the LEFT until it clicks.
Control settings of 3 to 5 should be adequate in normal climatic conditions and general laboratory
locations. Prolonged use of the coldest setting may freeze some contents of the compartment and
may affect the correct operation of the automatic defrost function.
Such factors as location, room temperature, frequency of door opening and frequency of defrosting
will affect your refrigerator temperature and the thermostat setting might have to be varied to allow
for these. During hot weather if the location or room temperature exceeds 29oC the cooling system
can be expected to run continuously.
Temperature adjustment dial
DOOR AND LOCK
Door opening is by pulling the recessed handle in the top. A light touch on the door should be
sufficient for it to close firmly. The magnetic door gasket around the door liner provides an effective
seal when the door is closed.
This unit is supplied with a lock and two keys. To lock and unlock, push key in gently and a light
twist of 90 degrees will be satisfactory. If it seems stiff, remove the key and try again. The key can
be removed in the locked and unlocked positions.
THE KEYS SHOULD NOT BE LEFT IN THE LOCK as they protrude from the unit, which could be
a safety hazard, and if knocked could cause damage to the door and lock. The warranty will not
cover this type of failure.
LABCOLD DOES NOT ACCEPT LIABILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE OF KEYS.
WE WOULD BE HAPPY TO SUPPLY A COMPLETE LOCK AND KEY REPLACEMENT
HOWEVER THERE MAY BE A CHARGE FOR THIS.
DEFROSTING
This product, when used normally, and in accordance with this manual, will defrost completely
automatically as part of its standard operating cycle during which the compressor motor should
stop periodically. You may observe small amounts of ice, or drops of water on the rear interior wall.
This is completely normal. Any excess moisture that collects in the base of the chamber should be
mopped up periodically with a paper towel.
Should you observe the interior back wall of the refrigerator to have a thick layer of frost this may
be due to excessively frequent or extended door openings, moist items being placed in the
chamber, or too low an operating temperature. To manually defrost remove the contents to another
refrigerator, and turn off at the mains. Once all the ice has melted and the resultant water mopped
up, the refrigerator can be restarted. If the ice build up was as a result of an incorrect operating
temperature please readjust as indicated in the relevant previous section.
This model does not have the facilities for the storage of frozen items
CLEANING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
The cleanliness of your refrigerator is as important to your samples as maintaining proper
temperatures.
Exterior
Use a silicone liquid wax polish, which will clean and polish the cabinet in one easy application.
CAUTION!
• Do not use waxes, which contain ammonia, as they tend to discolour the finish.
• Do not use aerosol polishes as the spray may damage the plastic parts.
Interior
Your refrigerator interior should be wiped with a soft cloth dampened with a solution of mild
detergent. Rinse with clean warm water and dry thoroughly.
CAUTION!
• Do not use scouring powders, bleaching agents, solvents, acids, metals or nylon
sponges when cleaning any part of your refrigerator.
• Metal polishes, waxes or furniture creams must not be used to clean the interior, as
damage to plastic surfaces will result.

GENERAL OPERATION
The unit has two operating modes: MAX/MIN DISPLAY MODE and HI/LO DISPLAY MODE. To
change from one mode to another press MODE button once.
The MAX/MIN DISPLAY MODE shows the current temperature along with the maximum and
minimum temperature. Initially the maximum and minimum temperatures values will be the same
as the current temperature, these will alter once changes in temperature are recorded.
The HI/LO DISPLAY MODE shows the current temperature and the pre-set high and low
temperature alarm limits.
RESET MAXIMUM OR MINIMUM MEMORIES
To reset both memories:
In the MAX/MIN DISPLAY MODE press the MEMORY CLEAR button once.
To reset individual Max or Min Memories:
In the MAX/MIN DISPLAY MODE press either the MAX button or the MIN button once to reset the
respective memory. The other memory will be unaffected.
Note: Resetting a memory will result in the current temperature being displayed in the MAX or MIN
memory display.
TEMPERATURE ALARM
The alarm will sound for 1 minute if the current temperature crosses either the high or low
temperature alarm limit. Unless the alarm is deactivated it will stop automatically after 1 minute to
conserve power but will issue a 3 second repeater sound every minute for up to 12 hours. The
repeater alarm will continue to sound until it is deactivated, even if the temperature later returns to
normal limits. The HI or LO indicator will also flash continuously for up to 12 hours or until the
alarm is deactivated.
DEACTIVATION OF ALARM
When the alarm sounds it can be deactivated by pressing either the HI, LO or MEMORY CLEAR
buttons. The alarm will automatically reset.
SETTING HIGH/LOW TEMPERATURE ALARM LIMITS
To set the high temperature alarm limit press the HI button to increase by 1º steps. Press and hold
the HI button to give fast advance. The same procedure applies for setting the low temperature
alarm limit by pressing the LO button. The selection range is from -50ºC to +70ºC (-58ºF to
+158ºF).
There is a switch on the back of the thermometer for the selection of Celsius or Fahrenheit.
SAMPLING CYCLE
There is a switch on the back of the thermometer to select NORMAL or FAST sampling cycles.
NORMAL selects a 60 second sampling cycle and FAST selects a 10 second sampling cycle.
Note – Reset the thermometer after any change to the sampling cycle.
MAINTENANCE
Keep the thermometer dry. If it gets wet, wipe dry immediately. Liquids can contain minerals that
will corrode the electronic circuits.
Use and store the thermometer in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can
shorten the life of electronic devices, damage the battery and distort or melt plastic parts.
Handle the thermometer carefully. Dropping can damage circuit boards.
Keep free of dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.
Wipe the thermometer with a damp cloth occasionally. Do not use chemicals, cleaning solvents or
strong detergents.
Remove old or weak batteries.
Do not attempt to modify or tamper with the thermometer’s components as this may cause a
malfunction and invalidate the warranty.
