OPERATION

Before using

Remove all securing tapes. Wash inside the appliance with lukewarm water and bicarbonate of soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water).

Do not use soap or detergent as the smell may linger. Dry thoroughly.

Setting the temperature

The temperature inside the refrigerator is regulated by a thermostat with 6 temperature positions and one ÇOFFÈ (O) position.

Position 1 = minimum coldness

Position 6 = maximum coldness

Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.

The intermediate position is usually the most suitable (3-4).

The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the following factors:

Ð room temperature

Ð how often the door is opened

Ð how much food is stored

Ð position of the appliance

Important

During prolonged periods of abnormally hot weather, if the thermostat is set on too high a number, the cooling system may operate continuously and the fridge cooling plate may not defrost. Turning the knob to a lower number will cause the automatic defrosting to resume.

Low RomTemperature Switch

To ensure that the appliance is working efficiently when the room temperature drops below 16¡C, the switch mounted next to the thermostat control should be switched on.

No damage can be caused by leaving the switch in this position for any period of time (see page 11 Low room temperature operation).However should the temperature rise above 16¡C remember to turn the switch off again.

D710

A - Low Room Temperature Switch

The freezer compartment

The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing fresh foods.

Freezing fresh food

When freezing large amounts of fresh food turn the thermostat to maximum approximately 1 hour prior to freezing.

When the food is frozen return to the normal position.

In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 10 kg. of fresh food.

Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer of the freezer as this is the coldest part.

If you need to store large quantities of food, you can remove the drawer from the appliance and pile the food directly on the cooling shelves, always respecting the load limits where they are stated.

Important

In the event of a power cut the food in the freezer will not be affected if the power cut is short and if the freezer is full. Do not open the door. Should the food begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must not be re-frozen .

DEFROSTED COOKED FOOD MUST NOT BE

REFROZEN.

Frozen food storage

When you first start the freezer or if the freezer has been out of use for some time, we advise you to depress the ambient switch for at least two hours before storing frozen food.

Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the manufacturer.

Finally, do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than is absolutely necessary.

5

Warning

Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks etc.), in the freezer compartment.

Water ices, if consumed immediately after removal from the freezer, can cause low temperature skin burns.

Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or

Òfrost/freezer burnsÓ.

Important

In the event of a power cut the food in the freezer will not be affected if the power cut is short and if the freezer is full. Do not open the door. Should the food begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must not be re-frozen .

Thawing

Food can be thawed in a number of ways, depending on the type of food and the size of the packs.

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 or deep-frozen food: follow the oven instructions, particularly regarding the placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in the oven.

Fresh food refrigeration

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.

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 or chicken): wrap in polythene bags and place on top of the salad crispers.

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 crispers.

Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or

6 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.

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 or to the fixed freezer shelves.

¥ 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.

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 use sharp or metallic instruments to remove the trays from the freezer.

INSTALLATION

Warning

IF YOU ARE DISCARDING AN OLD APPLIANCE

YOU MUST ENSURE THAT IT IS MADE

UNUSABLE TO PREVENT YOUNG CHILDREN

BEING TRAPPED INSIDE.

Depending upon the position which you choose for your appliance, you may wish to reverse the way in which the door opens. To do this, refer to instructions on ÒDoor reversal directionsÓ paragraph.

Important

It must be possible to disconnect the appliance from the mains power supply; the plug must therefore be easily accessible after installation.

Positioning

This appliance is designed to operate in ambient temperatures between 10¡C (50¡F) and 32¡C (90¡C).

It should be located in a dry atmosphere, out of direct sunlight and away from extreme temperature e.g. not next to a boiler or radiator, or in a very cold room e.g. an outhouse, where the temperatures may fall below 10¡C (50¡F). If these temperatures are exceeded i.e. colder or warmer, then the appliance may not operate correctly.

You should also ensure that air can circulate freely around the back and the top of the cabinet. There must also be at least 100 mm (4Ó) distance between the top of the cabinet and any overhanging kitchen furniture (A). Ideally, the appliance should not be positioned beneath overhanging furniture (B).

There should also be a gap of 25 mm either side of the appliance. Do not obstruct the space underneath. The back of the cabinet may be placed close to the wall but must not touch it. DO NOT install in places with restricted ventilation.

Adjust the level of the appliance by screwing out the adjustable foot, or feet, at the bottom of the cabinet using your fingers.

HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES

Because of consumer demand, preservatives have been removed from many pre-prepared foods. This together with the changes in shopping habits to a once-a-week shop, mean that safe handling and storage of food is even more important than ever.

The following tips should help you to ensure that the food in your home is in as perfect condition as possible.

¥ Keep the time between buying chilled food and placing it in your fridge as short as possible. Tests showed that the temperature of 1 litre of orange juice rose to 22¡C in an hour between the supermarket and home. It then took 11 hours to get down to 7¡C in the refrigerator.

¥ Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible.

¥ Do not push food together too much, try to allow air to circulate around each item.

¥ Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do

NOT place in the refrigerator until cool. (Leave food in a cool place in order that it can then be put in the refrigerator as soon as possible).

¥ Do NOT mix raw and cooked meat, they must be in separate containers. Take care not to let the meat juices drip onto other food. If the meat does drip, remove everything and clean thoroughly.

¥ Do not store food uncovered.

¥ The best way to defrost food is to put it in the refrigerator to thaw slowly.

¥ Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and clean (refer to ÒMaintenance and Cleaning).

¥ Never allow spillages to dry and harden.

¥ 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.

¥ It is important that food is used before its Òbest beforeÓ date.

¥ Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped eggs.

¥ Regularly check the refrigerator door seal to ensure that it is clean and free from debris.

¥ Always wash your hands with soapy water and dry them with a clean towel before handling food.

¥ Keep work surfaces clean and avoid cross contamination by not using the same work surface or knife, without washing them thoroughly in between.

¥ The fresh foods to be frozen must be fresh and of the best quality.

¥ The size of each pack should be small enough to ensure that it is used in one go . Small packs freeze more quickly and uniformly and give better results.

8

¥ Frozen food, once thawed, must not be refrozen.

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.

¥ Never place hot food, bottles or cans of fizzy drink in the freezer as they may explode.

Containers with a lid must not be filled to the brim.

¥ Do not open the door or place extra fresh food in the freezer next to food which is already frozen as this could cause the temperature of the frozen food to rise and its quality and storage life to reduce .

¥ The symbols on the drawers show different types of frozen goods.

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.

In the event of a power failure causing the temperature within your freezer to rise, do not refreeze the food without checking its condition.

The following guidelines should assist you.

Ice-cream

: once thawed should be discarded.

Fruits & Vegetables:

if soft should be cooked and used up.

Breads & Cakes

: can be re-frozen without danger.

Shellfish

: should be refrigerated and used up quickly.

Cooked Dishes

: i.e. casseroles should be refrigerated and used up.

Large Pieces of Meat:

can be re-frozen providing there are still ice crystals remaining within them.

Small Joints

SOMETHING NOT WORKING

Important:

If you call out an engineer to a fault listed below, or to repair a fault caused by incorrect use or installation a charge will be made, even if the appliance is under guarantee.

Before

contacting your local Service Force Centre, check the following points:

Symptom

No power to the appliance

The light does not come on

The temperature in the fridge or freezer section is too high

The freezer door will not open

The compressor runs continously

Excessive frost and ice has built up

Solution

Check there is power at the socket.

Check there is not a power cut by checking the household lights.

Check the fuse has not blown.

Ensure that the bulb is correctly fitted.

Replace the bulb if it has blown.

Check the door light switch is not jammed.

Check the thermostat control knob in the fridge is turned to the correct setting relative to ambient conditions.

Check the ambient temperature is within the applianceÕs operating limits of 10¡C to 32¡C.

Relocate the appliance if necessary.

Has door just been opened? If so leave for a few minutes to allow the air pressure to equalise.

Adjust the thermostat control knob to give correct temperature control. See ÒSetting the temperatureÓ.

Check that the doors are closed.

Large quantities of food have recently been placed in the cabinet and/or door is frequently opened.

Check that air ventilation is not obstructed.

Ensure the doors are not left open.

Check that nothing is preventing the doors from closing.

Is the door gasket intact and clean.

Has advised periodic defrosting been carried out.

Noise

Water under the salad crispers

Refer to normal operating sounds.

Check the drain hole is not blocked. (see

Maintenance and Cleaning).

Low room temperature operation

During prolonged periods of low room temperatures,ie;10¡C and lower, the compressor on single compressor fridge freezer can remain inoperative during this time .

This is due to the air temperature within the refrigerator compartment being maintained at 6¡C or under thus not calling the thermostat to energise the compressor .

11

During a normal night time period of approximately 8 hours a traditional fridge freezer can normally maintain the frozen food temperature but if the appliance is left for longer period in a low ambient temperature the freezer will defrost .

If, after the above checks, there is still a fault, call your local Service Force Centre.

In-guarantee customers should ensure that the above checks have been made as the engineer will make a charge if the fault is not a mechanical or electrical breakdown.

ELECTRICITY supply.

Changing the light bulb

Should the interior light fail to work, first switch off the appliance and disconnect from the electricity supply, then replace the bulb as follows;

Internal cleaning

Clean the inside and accessories with warm water and bicarbonate of soda (5ml to 0.5 litre of water).

Rinse and dry thoroughly.

NEVER USE DETERGENTS, ABRASIVE

POWDERS, HIGHLY PERFUMED

CLEANING PRODUCTS OR WAX

POLISHES, TO CLEAN THE INTERIOR AS

THESE WILL DAMAGE THE SURFACE AND

LEAVE A STRONG SMELL.

External cleaning

Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water. Do

NOT use abrasive products.

An accumulation of dust will affect the performance of the appliance and cause excessive electricity consumption.

You MUST ensure that the appliance is switched

OFF

Once or twice a year dust the condenser (black grill) and the compressor at the back of the appliance, with a brush or vacuum cleaner, see figure.

D411

Unscrew the light cover and then pull it outward by pressing as shown in the figure. Unscrew the bulb and replace it with a new 15 watt bulb (available from your nearest Service Force Centre).

Replace the light cover by sliding it into its original position and replacing the screw.

Defrosting

Refrigerator

The refrigerator automatically defrosts every time the compressor stops. The water is discharged, via the pipe, into a tray located at the back of the appliance above the compressor, where it evaporates.

HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES

Because of consumer demand, preservatives have been removed from many pre-prepared foods. This together with the changes in shopping habits to a once-a-week shop, mean that safe handling and storage of food is even more important than ever.

The following tips should help you to ensure that the food in your home is in as perfect condition as possible.

¥ Keep the time between buying chilled food and placing it in your fridge as short as possible. Tests showed that the temperature of 1 litre of orange juice rose to 22¡C in an hour between the supermarket and home. It then took 11 hours to get down to 7¡C in the refrigerator.

¥ Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible.

¥ Do not push food together too much, try to allow air to circulate around each item.

¥ Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do

NOT place in the refrigerator until cool. (Leave food in a cool place in order that it can then be put in the refrigerator as soon as possible).

¥ Do NOT mix raw and cooked meat, they must be in separate containers. Take care not to let the meat juices drip onto other food. If the meat does drip, remove everything and clean thoroughly.

¥ Do not store food uncovered.

¥ The best way to defrost food is to put it in the refrigerator to thaw slowly.

¥ Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and clean (refer to ÒMaintenance and Cleaning).

¥ Never allow spillages to dry and harden.

¥ 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.

¥ It is important that food is used before its Òbest beforeÓ date.

¥ Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped eggs.

¥ Regularly check the refrigerator door seal to ensure that it is clean and free from debris.

¥ Always wash your hands with soapy water and dry them with a clean towel before handling food.

¥ Keep work surfaces clean and avoid cross contamination by not using the same work surface or knife, without washing them thoroughly in between.

¥ The fresh foods to be frozen must be fresh and of the best quality.

¥ The size of each pack should be small enough to ensure that it is used in one go . Small packs freeze more quickly and uniformly and give better results.

8

¥ Frozen food, once thawed, must not be refrozen.

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.

¥ Never place hot food, bottles or cans of fizzy drink in the freezer as they may explode.

Containers with a lid must not be filled to the brim.

¥ Do not open the door or place extra fresh food in the freezer next to food which is already frozen as this could cause the temperature of the frozen food to rise and its quality and storage life to reduce .

¥ The symbols on the drawers show different types of frozen goods.

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.

Warning

Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks etc.), in the freezer compartment.

Water ices, if consumed immediately after removal from the freezer, can cause low temperature skin burns.

Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or

Òfrost/freezer burnsÓ.

Important

In the event of a power cut the food in the freezer will not be affected if the power cut is short and if the freezer is full. Do not open the door. Should the food begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must not be re-frozen .

Thawing

Food can be thawed in a number of ways, depending on the type of food and the size of the packs.

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 or deep-frozen food: follow the oven instructions, particularly regarding the placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in the oven.

Fresh food refrigeration

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.

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 or chicken): wrap in polythene bags and place on top of the salad crispers.

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 crispers.

Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or

6 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.

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 or to the fixed freezer shelves.

¥ 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.

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 use sharp or metallic instruments to remove the trays from the freezer.

OPERATION

Before using

Remove all securing tapes. Wash inside the appliance with lukewarm water and bicarbonate of soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water).

Do not use soap or detergent as the smell may linger. Dry thoroughly.

Setting the temperature

The temperature inside the refrigerator is regulated by a thermostat with 6 temperature positions and one ÇOFFÈ (O) position.

Position 1 = minimum coldness

Position 6 = maximum coldness

Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.

The intermediate position is usually the most suitable (3-4).

The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the following factors:

Ð room temperature

Ð how often the door is opened

Ð how much food is stored

Ð position of the appliance

Important

During prolonged periods of abnormally hot weather, if the thermostat is set on too high a number, the cooling system may operate continuously and the fridge cooling plate may not defrost. Turning the knob to a lower number will cause the automatic defrosting to resume.

Low RomTemperature Switch

To ensure that the appliance is working efficiently when the room temperature drops below 16¡C, the switch mounted next to the thermostat control should be switched on.

No damage can be caused by leaving the switch in this position for any period of time (see page 11 Low room temperature operation).However should the temperature rise above 16¡C remember to turn the switch off again.

The freezer compartment

The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing fresh foods.

Freezing fresh food

When freezing large amounts of fresh food turn the thermostat to maximum approximately 1 hour prior to freezing.

When the food is frozen return to the normal position.

In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 10 kg. of fresh food.

Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer of the freezer as this is the coldest part.

If you need to store large quantities of food, you can remove the drawer from the appliance and pile the food directly on the cooling shelves, always respecting the load limits where they are stated.

Important

In the event of a power cut the food in the freezer will not be affected if the power cut is short and if the freezer is full. Do not open the door. Should the food begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must not be re-frozen .

DEFROSTED COOKED FOOD MUST NOT BE

REFROZEN.

Frozen food storage

When you first start the freezer or if the freezer has been out of use for some time, we advise you to depress the ambient switch for at least two hours before storing frozen food.

Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the manufacturer.
