Your appliance needs air
50 mm
For safety reasons, minimum ventilation must be as shown Fig.
Attention: keep ventilation openings clear of obstruction;
To obtain the best performance:
• do not store warm food or evaporating liquid in the refrigeator
• do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong flavour.
• Position food so that air can circuiate freely round it.
Useful hints:
Meat (all types): wrap in polythene bags and place on the glass shelf
above the vegetable drawer(s)
For safety, store in this way only one or two days at the most.
Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc: these should be covered and may
be placed on any shelf.
Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly cleaned and
placed in the special drawer(s) provided.
Butter and cheese: these should be placed in special airtight containers or wapped in aluminium foil or polythene bags to exclude as
much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be stored in the
bottle rack on the door.

Important!
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18 °C or colder before freezing food.
• Please observe the freezing capacity given on the rating plate. The
freezing capacity is the maximum quantity of fresh food that can be
frozen within a period of 24 hours. If you wish to freeze food several days in a row, please observe a maximum capacity of only 2/3 to
3/4 of that on the rating plate. The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen right through to the core as quickly as possible.
9
• Allow warm food to cool down before freezing. The warmth will cause increased ice formation and increase the power consumption.
Installation
• Please note the maximum storage times specified by the manufacturer.
Electrical Connection
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into
meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
Any electrical work required to install this appliance should be carried
out by a qualified electrician or competent person.
• Containers with flammable gases or liquids can leak at low temperatures. There is a risk of an explosion! Do not store any containers
with flammable materials such as, for example, spray cans, fire
extinguisher refill cartridges etc in the refrigerator/freezer.
WARNING – THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
The manufacturer declines any liability should these safety measures not be observed.
Before switching on, make sure the electricity supply voltage is the
same as that indicated on the appliance rating plate. The rating plate
is inside, on the left.
The appliance is supplied with a 13 amp plug fitted. In the event of
having to change the fuse in the plug supplied, a 13 amp ASTA approved (BS 1362) fuse must be used.
• Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer. They can burst
when the contents freeze, high carbonate content drinks can even
explode! Never store lemonade, juices, beer, wine, sparkling wine
etc. in the freezer.
• All foods must be packed air tight prior to freezing, so that they do
not dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of other frozen goods occurs.
Important! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands
could freeze to the food.
1.
Place the packed food in the drawers. Place food to be frozen in the
upper drawer. Unfrozen food must not touch items already frozen,
otherwise the frozen food could begin to defrost.
2.
When freezing fresh food, depress the ambient temperature switch
(A) 12 hours before loading the food without modifying the thermostat
setting. The pilot light will come on. At the end of the freezing process,
do not forget to depress again the ambient switch in order to avoid an
increase of the power consumption.

and yellow.
2.
The wire coloured blue must be connected to the terminal “N” or
coloured black.
3.
The wire coloured brown must be connected to the terminal marked
“L” or coloured red.
4.
Upon completion there must be no cut, or stray strands of wire present and the cord clamp must be secure over the outer sheath.

• The numbers indicate storage times in months for the appropriate
types of frozen goods. Whether the upper or lower value of the indicated storage time is valid depends on the quality of the foods and
pre-treating before freezing. The lower value applies to foods with
high fat content.
• By attaching the included index-tabs to the drawers, they can be
marked according to which type of foods the individual compartments contain.
Defrosting
Refrigerator
Frost is automatically eliminated from the evaporator of the refrigerator compartment every time the motor compressor stops, during normal use. The defrost water drains out through a trough into a special
container at the back of the appliance, over the motor compressor,
where it evaporates.
11
Freezer
The freezer compartment, however, will become progressively covered with frost. This should be removed with the special plastic scraper
provided, whenever the thickness of the frost exceeds 4 mm. During
this operation it is not necessary to switch off the power supply or to
remove the foodstuffs.
However when the ice becomes very thick on the inner liner, complete defrosting should be carried out as follows:
1.
Remove the frozen food from
the freezer, wrap it in several
layers of newspaper and put it
in a very cool place.

Accumulation of dust at the condenser increases energy consumption. For this reason carefully clean the condenser at the back of the
appliance once a year with a soft brush or a vacuum cleaner. Ensure
the appliance is switched off.

Energy Saving Tips
• Do not install the appliance near cookers, radiators or other sources
of warmth. High ambient temperatures cause longer, more frequent
operation of the compressor.
Possible Cause
Please see "Changing the
Light Bulb" section.
Carefully warm the leaking
sections of the door seal
with a hair dryer (not hotter
than approx. 50 °C). At the
same time shape the warmed door seal by hand such
that it sits correctly.
