water filter has been utilised to about
80 % of its expected lifetime. In this
situation, it is recommended that you
buy a replacement filter. When the
indicator lamp starts flashing, the
water filter has been utilised to 100%
of its lifetime. Replace the filter without
After replacing the filter cartridge, see
the section "Service during operation".

Saving energy
· Pay careful attention to where the
cabinet is placed. See the section
"Installation". When installed correctly,
the cabinet will consume less energy.
· 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.
· Ensure there are no obstructions
preventing the door from closing
· Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This
will ensure safer defrosting of foods
and reduce the work of the
refrigeration unit
· It is advisable to periodically clean the
refrigeration system at the back of the
appliance with a duster or vacuum
· Always leave warm food to cool
down to room temperature before
placing in the fridge.
· Make sure the door gasket is
complete and always clean.
Food Storage
· To obtain the best results from your
appliance, neither hot foods nor liquids
which may evaporate, should be
placed in the larder compartment.
· Avoid buying frozen food if you can
not store it straight away. The use of
an insulated container is advisable.
When you arrive home place the
frozen food in the freezer immediately.
· 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
you appliance and clean, refer to
cleaning and maintenance.
Protect the environment
· Hand over the cabinet packaging
and discarded fridges and freezers to a
recycling station. Contact your local
council or Environmental Health office
for more information.
· Keep foodstuff in re-usable
containers. Cut down on disposable
material as much as possible.
· When cleaning the cabinet, use a
mild washing-up detergent.
· Follow the advice in the section
"Saving energy"
· The door gasket and coolant used in
this cabinet will not harm the ozone
· All parts in the packaging can be
· The cabinet has been designed for
easy dismantling and subsequent
Removing the ventilation grille
The ventilation grille can be removed,
e.g. to wash the grille.
Make sure the door is open when
removing the ventilation grille. Unsnap
the upper edge of the grille by pulling
outward/downward. Then pull the grille
straight out to completely remove it.
Clean the cabinet at regular intervals.
Internal Cleaning
Disconnect the appliance from
electricity supply.
Clean the inside and accessories with
warm water and bicarbonate of soda
(5ml to 0,5 litre water) Rinse and dry
Regularly check the door seals and
wipe clean to ensure they are clean
and free from debris.
External Cleaning
Use water/neutral soap emulsion for
cleaning the surface of stainless steel,
anti-finger-print coated. Do NOT use
abrasive paste.
Wash the outer cabinet with warm
soapy water. Remove the ventilation
grille (see the section "Removing the
ventilation grille") and vacuum-clean
under the cabinet. Once or twice a
year dust the condenser (black grille)
and the compressor at the back of the
appliance, with a brush or vacuum
cleaner, as an accumulation of dust
will affect the performance of the
appliance and cause excessive
electricity consumption.
When moving the cabinet, lift it by the
front edge to avoid scratching the floor.
Servicing and cleaning the water
Never use cleaning agents with a
grinding or aggressive effect.
When necessary, clean the surfaces of
the dispenser and the water container
that are accessible from the outside,
using only a soft cloth and warm water.
The dispenser drip bowl can be
cleaned with a tepid solution of
washing up liquid.
If the system is not be used for a long
period turn off the water connection to
the refrigerator. A filter that has been in
service shall not be exposed to
temperatures below 0 °C as cracking
of the filter body may occur due to
freezing expansion.
If the filter still is to be preserved for
later reuse, suitable storage
temperature will be +5 °C.
When the refrigerator is to be used
again, rinse the system through
thoroughly by draining off at least three
litres (5 pints) of water.
If necessary, all systems containing
water must be sanitized by ordering
the necessary sanitizing kit through
Electrolux Service Force Centre (tel:
+44 8705 929 929) or through our
website www.electrolux.co.uk.
Service during operation
The water filter is replaced as follows:
Place a piece of kitchen tissue or a
dishcloth in the space under the filter.

See the section "When starting the
water system for the first time".
The water connection does not need
to be switched off when changing the
Replacement filters can be ordered
from Electrolux Service Force Centre.
See the section "Service and
replacement parts".
The gas cylinder is replaced as follows:
remove the gas cylinder and transfer
the adapter to the new cylinder.
The replacement gas cylinder is

Assemble a new lamp by guiding it
into a centred position and press until
it snaps into place.
Use a halogen bulb of the same type,
maximum rating of 20 W.
Change of carbon filter
To maintain the best performance the
carbon filter should be changed once
a year with normal usage.
New carbon filters can be purchased
from your local dealer. The filter is
placed behind the grill and can be
reached by opening the cover. The
cover can be opened by simultaneously pressing the lever on the right
of the grill (1) and turning the cover
outward (2). The carbon filter is then
pulled out of its slot (3).
The new carbon filter is placed in the
existing slot - The filter should be
handled carefully so fragments do not
loosen from the surface.
Defrosting the fridge
The fridge is defrosted automatically
every time the compressor stops. Frost
formation can be prevented by:
· not putting warm foodstuff inside
the cabinet.
· avoiding frequently opening the
door or keeping it open too long.
When the appliance is not in use
Disconnect the appliance from
electricity supply.
Empty all foods and clean the
appliance, leaving the doors ajar to
prevent unpleasant smells.
If the cabinet is to be kept on, ask
somebody to check it once in a while
to prevent the food inside from spoiling
in case of a power failure.

some sounds. A pulsing sound is heard when
coolant is pumped inside the cooling pipes.
A ticking sound from the thermostat can be
heard when the compressor switches on and

operation of the cabinet.
If you feel the sound level is incorrect:
Make sure the pipes at the back of the
