case, wait for the natural fitting of the gasket or
accelerate this process by heating up the part
involved with a normal hairdryer on a low setting.
Important
In the event of a power cut do not open the door.
The food in the freezer will not be affected if the
power cut is short and if the freezer is full. Should
the food begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly
and must not be re-frozen.
Storage of frozen food
When first starting-up or after a period of use, before
putting the products in the compartment let the
appliance run for at least two hours on the coldest
setting, then turn the thermostat knob to the normal
opertion position.

Thawing
Fresh food refrigeration
Frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in
the fridge or at room temperature depending on the
time available. Small food items may even be
cooked from frozen; in this case cooking will take
longer.
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.
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw
accidentally should either be eaten as soon as
possible or thrown away. Alternatively, if the food is
uncooked and has not been completely defrosted it
can be cooked and then refrozen.
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen food: follow the oven instructions,
particularly regarding the placement of aluminium
wrapping or containers in the oven.
Defrosted cooked food must never be
refrozen.
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with one or more trays for
ice-cubes trays.
Fill the tray(s) 3/4 full to give the ice space to expand
and place them in the freezer compartment.
To release the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight
twist.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & poultry): wrap in
polythene bags and place on top of the salad crisper.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad crisper.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped 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.
Electrical connections
Any electrical work required to install this appliance
should be carried out by a qualified electrician or
competent person.

HINTS AND TIPS
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
Energy Saving Advice
Normal Operating Sounds
¥
¥
¥
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils
or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator.
Do not install the appliance close to sources of
heat, such as a boiler or radiator.
¥
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
appliance are not obstructed.
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 ÕclickÕ when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages
before placing them in the freezer.
¥
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge.
¥
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should be
placed in the fridge before being transferred to
the freezer.
¥
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will ensure
safer defrosting of foods and reduce the work of
the refrigeration unit.
¥
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
Food Storage
To obtain the best performance from your fridgefreezer
¥
Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.
¥
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it
straight away. The use of an insulated container
is advisable. When you arrive home place the
frozen food in the freezer immediately.
¥
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your refrigerator as short as possible.
¥
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
¥
Do not store food uncovered.
¥
Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated
and labelled and used in date order to ensure
that food is consumed at its best.
¥
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean, refer to Maintenance and Cleaning.
¥
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty
food, salt reduces the storage time.
¥
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal .
¥
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of
refrozen water droplets on the pack could
indicate that the product has not been kept at a
suitable temperature and that it may have lost its
original quality. Partially thawed food must not be
refrozen, it must be consumed within 24 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated by the
manufacturer.

HINTS AND TIPS
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
Energy Saving Advice
Normal Operating Sounds
¥
¥
¥
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils
or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator.
Do not install the appliance close to sources of
heat, such as a boiler or radiator.
¥
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
appliance are not obstructed.
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 ÕclickÕ when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages
before placing them in the freezer.
¥
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge.
¥
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should be
placed in the fridge before being transferred to
the freezer.
¥
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will ensure
safer defrosting of foods and reduce the work of
the refrigeration unit.
¥
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
Food Storage
To obtain the best performance from your fridgefreezer
¥
Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.
¥
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it
straight away. The use of an insulated container
is advisable. When you arrive home place the
frozen food in the freezer immediately.
¥
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your refrigerator as short as possible.
¥
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
¥
Do not store food uncovered.
¥
Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated
and labelled and used in date order to ensure
that food is consumed at its best.
¥
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean, refer to Maintenance and Cleaning.
¥
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty
food, salt reduces the storage time.
¥
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal .
¥
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of
refrozen water droplets on the pack could
indicate that the product has not been kept at a
suitable temperature and that it may have lost its
original quality. Partially thawed food must not be
refrozen, it must be consumed within 24 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated by the
manufacturer.

Thawing
Fresh food refrigeration
Frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in
the fridge or at room temperature depending on the
time available. Small food items may even be
cooked from frozen; in this case cooking will take
longer.
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.
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw
accidentally should either be eaten as soon as
possible or thrown away. Alternatively, if the food is
uncooked and has not been completely defrosted it
can be cooked and then refrozen.
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen food: follow the oven instructions,
particularly regarding the placement of aluminium
wrapping or containers in the oven.
Defrosted cooked food must never be
refrozen.
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with one or more trays for
ice-cubes trays.
Fill the tray(s) 3/4 full to give the ice space to expand
and place them in the freezer compartment.
To release the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight
twist.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & poultry): wrap in
polythene bags and place on top of the salad crisper.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad crisper.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped 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.
