Refrigerant Gas Information

IMPORTANT: This appliance is provided with refrigerant gas, ISOBUTHANE (R600a). When moving the appliance make sure that it is not excessively struck or shaken. Failure to do so could damage the appliance.

Damage to the refrigerating circuit, with possible leaking of refrigerating gas, could create a risk of explosion caused by external sparks or flames.

In the Event of Accidental Leakage

Allow the material to evaporate providing that adequate ventilation is provided.

Behaviour of the Gas

This refrigerant gas is highly flammable so do not allow the gas to come into contact with hot surfaces or naked flames.

Gas R600a is heavier than air: if released it forms a high concentration at floor level where ventilation is poor.

First Aid


Take the exposed person from the polluted area and carry them to a warm, well ventilated place.

Long exposure can cause the onset of asphyxia and possible loss of consciousness. If necessary, practice artificial respiration, and in the most serious cases, administer oxygen under close medical supervision.

Skin Contact

It is unlikely that occasional contact with the skin is dangerous. If this should happen thoroughly wash the affected zone.

Liquid splashes and atomised liquid can cause freezing burns.

Wash the affected part with plenty of water and call a doctor to treat any burns.

Eye Contact

Wash with plenty of water, with eyelids well open, and call a specialist doctor as soon as possible.

In any event, should you inhale or come into contact with

R600a gas, we advise you to consult your own doctor.

About the Freezer Compartment

The freezer compartment consists of two drawers, three glass shelves and three tilting door shelves .

As with the fridge, certain areas of the freezer are better for storage of certain foods.

Large/heavier portions of food, such as meats joints for roasting are best stored in the drawers at the bottom of the appliance, while less weighty items should be stored on the shelves – this is to prevent damage to the appliance.

You should always make sure that food stored is suitable for freezing, and that you have stored it securely inside the appliance.


To remove the shelves, lift the shelf in an upward direction at the rear, and pull it towards you. You must have the appliance door open by at least 90°.

Defrosting Food for Cooking

Should food become partially thawed or defrosted, it should be consumed as soon as possible as the quality will be affected by defrosting. n n

before cooking and no ice crystals remain. This is especially important for poultry, as this can be extremely harmful to health.

Always follow the defrosting instructions on packaging when defrosting ready meals – manufacturers’ guidelines are always best, as some frozen foods should be cooked from frozen.

The Icemaker/Water Dispenser


• NEvER expose the water pipe to temperatures below

0 °C to avoid freezing.

• Test the tubing for leaks by flushing the tube through with water, until the water runs clear.

• After the appliance has been sited into the location of your choice, make sure that the water tube is arranged so it does not incur damage through bends and kinks and is clear of any heat sources.

• Once the temperature inside the freezer is at –15 °C ice production will begin.

• DO NOT over use the icemaker. If you attempt to use the ice cube button too often it will go into a shut down mode. This is perfectly normal and requires you to wait for one hour before attempting to re-use it.

• DO NOT use delicate or fragile glassware.

• DO NOT touch the ice cube outlet with your hands, or any implements to avoid injury or damage.

How the Icemaker Works

Capacity of the icemaker depends on the freezer temperature, the ambient temperature of the environment around the appliance and how often the freezer door is opened.

Do not store ice cubes, which are produced during the first batch of cubes following appliance start up, or after a prolonged break. Discard these cubes.

To allow the ice cube tray to fill to maximum capacity, you will need to manually arrange the ice cubes periodically.

Some ice cubes may stick together when dropped into the storage box – you will need to separate these to ensure maximum use of the icebox.


First use of the Icemaker / Water Dispenser

n n

of water, as there may be dust and / or impurities within the water pipes.

This will make sure that the pipes are cleared. If in doubt, keep re-using the dispenser until the water runs clear.

Noises During Ice Making

The ice making process can be noisy. You may hear ice being dropped into the storage compartment. This is perfectly normal.

Storing Ice for Extended Periods

Ice, which is stored for a long period of time, may go an opaque colour and have a strange odour. We recommend that you dispose of this ice, remove and clean the icebox.

Allow the tray to dry thoroughly and cool down before replacing into the appliance to prevent ice from sticking.

Preventing Ice from Being Made

If you do not require any ice over a prolonged period of time

(i.e. during winter) you can switch off the valve between the water supply and the appliance. It is recommended that you clean the icebox, dry it carefully and replace it back into the appliance – this will prevent any odours being produced.

Installing and Removing the Ice Cube Storage


To remove the icebox, press the bottom of the drawer and then pull the top, releasing the unit (Fig.2-5).

Note: Water moisture may have condensed and frozen the icebox in place.

If the icebox does not fit easily, remove it and turn the cam mechanism 90° clockwise (Fig.2-6). Reinstall the icebox, making sure that the catch on the tray fits into the shelf slot.

If the Ice Maker does not Work Properly

The volume of the icebox equals the quantity of ice cubes, which the appliance can make in one day. Occasionally small number of ice cubes may remain inside the box. If the ice gets stuck, this will result in abnormal operation of the ice cube maker. To avoid this problem, remove the icebox and rearrange the ice cubes, and remove the ice cubes which cannot be separated.

3. Food Storage Tips

Tips on Storing Fresh Food

Make sure that foods, which have been cooked and require chilling, are at room temperature before placing them into the appliance. Make sure that these foods are stored in suitable containers.

Foods stored in the refrigerator should be cleaned and dried before storing.

Before foods are put into the refrigerator, it is recommended that the foods should be pressurised, so that the water cannot vaporise, and the fruits and vegetables keep fresh and food smells will not mix.

Stored foods can be marked in bags.

Foods eaten daily should be stored at the front of the shelf.

Make sure that foodstuffs are stored systematically (raw meats with raw meats, dairy with dairy) to avoid flavour transfer and cross contamination. Raw meats should be stored towards the bottom of the appliance to prevent the possibility of it dripping onto uncooked food. Other foods should be stored above raw meat.

When storing food in the fresh food section always make sure there is adequate space for airflow circulation. This helps to maintain the shelf life of the food.

When storing food in the refrigerator make sure that foods are not too close to the rear wall to avoid the risk of freezing.

It is suggested for radishes and other root vegetables to trim the leaves. This keeps the nutrition in the root and not absorbed by the leaves.

• Put frozen foods into the fresh food area to let them defrost. The low temperature of the refrigerator reduces the formation of bacteria and extends food life.

Some foods like onions, garlic, bananas and root vegetables are better stored at room temperature than in the fridge.

Melon, pineapples and bananas can go directly into the freezer after preparing, for storage over a longer period.

Packaging fresh foods properly, using the correct temperature and taking into account food hygiene, will enhance the quality of fresh foods stored within this appliance.

• Use plastic bags, aluminium foil or other food wraps to cover fresh foods not in packaging to prevent flavour transfer and prevent contamination.

Before storing items in multi-packs (i.e. yoghurt) remove any excess packaging.

n n

explosive inside the appliance.

Beverages with high alcohol content should be stored vertically in tightly sealed bottles.

Delicate foods should be stored in the coolest part of the appliance.

Try not to open the door too often.

Set the thermostat to make sure that foods remain suitably cold; try to avoid freezing within the fridge.

Using a thermometer will help you to judge how cool the appliance is. Place it into a glass of water and leave it inside the appliance for several hours to get a reliable reading.

Some foods contain natural oils and acids (e.g. citric acid) which can damage plastics if spilled – make sure these foods are suitably contained.

Unpleasant odours inside the fridge are a sign that something has spilled and cleaning is required. Using warm water with bicarbonate of soda will clean the interior of the appliance and remove most spillages (see

‘Cleaning and Maintenance’).

Always remember to remove perishable foods from this appliance before taking prolonged trips or holidays.


Tips on Freezing Food

As with storing fresh foods, suitable packaging, correct temperature and food hygiene will enhance the quality of the food you are freezing.

Avoid putting hot foods into the freezer. First let them cool until they reach room temperature.

Make sure that all foods for freezing are of a high quality, and suitable for freezing.

• Use packaging material that is odourless and airproof

(such as plastic bags) to store food in so different foods can be mixed without affecting the quality. Make sure that it is airtight. Leaking packaging will dehydrate the products and lead to loss of beneficial vitamins.

Keep the surface of the packaging dry – this keeps the packs from freezing together.

Mark packages with the kind of food contained and the date of storage.

Food needs to be frozen quickly, so it is best to freeze small portions whenever possible and ensure that they are as cold as possible before storage. The recommended maximum weight for each portion is

2.5 kg.

• Keep food which is fresh away from food which is already frozen, if you need to freeze fresh food every day, make sure that it is in small portions to prevent this.

Do not exceed the maximum load for freezing – which is given as 10 kg / 24-hours (see data badge for details).

Write the expiry date and food names on the outside of the packaging so you can be assured of the food type and when it is safe to eat.

Take food from the freezer to defrost when needed.

Defrosted food cannot be refrozen unless it is cooked.

• Do not put too much fresh food into the freezer at once.

This could go beyond the freezer’s cooling capacity (see

‘Technical Data’).

When storing commercially frozen foods, please follow these guidelines:

• Always follow manufacturers’ guidelines for the length of time you should store food for. Do not exceed these guidelines!

Try to keep the length of time between purchase and storage as short as possible to preserve food quality.

Buy frozen foods, which have been stored at a temperature of –18 °C or below.

Avoid buying food which has ice or frost on the packaging – This indicates that the products might have been partially defrosted and refrozen at some point – temperature rises affect the quality of food.

• Should there be a power cut, or the freezer / refrigeration appliance fail for any length of time you may need to remove food from the freezer and store in a cold, hygienic place (i.e. garage or out house area) until the power is restored, or the appliance is repaired.

To prevent undue temperature rises you should wrap the foods in layers of insulating material, such as newspaper, to help to maintain their temperature. It is also important that any food affected by this situation should be either consumed or cooked and refrozen (where suitable) soon afterwards in order to prevent health risks.

Layers of newspaper can also be used to help keep foods cold while you are defrosting the freezer

(see ‘Cleaning and Maintenance’).

Note: For further installation details refer to the instructions supplied with the water filter.

• Pressure of the cold water supplied to the automatic icemaker is between 1.5-8.5 bar.

• The water tube should be of an appropriate length, usually 12 metres, and should be free of bends after being inserted into place. If the water pipe is too long then the water pressure will be reduced, affecting the ice and cold water content.

• DO NOT connect water supply when the ambient temperature is below 0 °C, otherwise the water pipe may freeze.

• Always use potable/drinking water.

• Keep the water tube clear of heat sources.

• The water filter is there to filter impurities in the water, and to make ice clean and hygienic. It cannot sterilise

or destroy anything, so be certain to connect the water pipe to a drinkable water source.

Shutting Off the Refrigerator

In the event of a power cut, food should remain safely cold for about 3 hours.

Should there be a prolonged power cut you may need to remove food from the freezer compartment and store it in a cold place, wrapped in layers of newspaper to preserve suitable temperatures.

Once power is restored replace the food back into the freezer compartment.

Should food begin to defrost, or the power cut last longer than expected, it is advised that you consume any food removed from the freezer.

If the power outage is short term, most foods can be left inside the freezer compartment – this is the best way of preserving temperature – and surrounded by ice cubes from the icebox. This is also an ideal solution for power outages you may have been pre-warned about.

When experiencing a power cut of any kind, do not add any extra foods to the freezer.

When Not in Use

If you are not using the appliance for an extended length of time, it is recommended that you switch off the electrical supply, empty any food out, clean the inside of the appliance and leave the door ajar. This will save energy, and also prevent a build up of stale odours inside.

Water Filter

To maintain water quality, the filter will need replacing from time to time. We recommend that the water filter is replaced every 2 years. However, if the water quality shows signs of deterioration, either visually or in taste, then the filter should be changed sooner.

Changing the Light Bulb

6. Troubleshooting

Before calling for service, please first read the following table: this could save you time and money.

Problem Cause Solution

The temperature is too low




The temperature inside the freezer is too low, with the fresh food temperatures fine.

The temperature inside the fresh food compartment is too cold, while the freezer sections are fine.

The foods stored in the full width pantry are frozen.

1.1.1 The temperature inside the freezer section is set too low.

1.2.1 The temperature inside the fresh food area is set too low.

1.3.1 The control setting in the fresh food area is set too cold.



The foods stored in the crisper are frozen.

Readings on the dispenser display are showing error codes.

1.4.1 The settings for the fresh food compartment are too cold.

1.5.1 An electronic operating problem has been encountered. Set the temperature in the freezer slightly higher then wait 24 hours for new balance to be achieved. Set the temperature inside the fresh food section slightly warmer. The temperatures will reach new balance within 24 hours. Set the fresh food control setting slightly higher.

The new set point temperature will reach a balance within 24 hours. Raising the fresh food control settings to a slightly higher temperature and/or lowering the humidity control setting will prevent frost or ice forming. Call your service engineer who can diagnose the problem and make correction.

The temperature is too high





The freezer drawer sections or fresh food compartment temperatures are too high.

2.1.1 The doors are opened frequently or for too long each time.

2.1.2 The doors are left open.

The temperature is too warm in the freezer but okay in the fresh food section.

The temperature is too warm in the fresh food section but okay in the freezer.

The temperature inside the crisper is too warm.

2.2.1 The temperature setting in the freezer is set too warm.

2.3.1 The temperature setting in the fresh food section is set too warm.

2.4.1 The fresh food set temperature is too warm. Try to reduce the frequency of opening doors. Take extra care to keep gaskets sealing well around the perimeter of the doors. Keep gaskets clean and dirt free. Set the temperature colder for the freezer section. Then allow it to balance within 24 hours at new colder temperature. Set the food temperature control slightly colder.

The new colder temperature can be achieved within 24 hours. Set the fresh food temperature colder and the balance to colder temperature will be achieved within 24 hours

Water, humidity or frost/ice in the fridge


Moisture formation on the inside of the fridge.

3.1.1 It is in a hot or humid environment.

3.1.2 The door is left open. Try raising the temperature slightly in the affected compartment. Check to make sure the door gaskets are clean and sealing well against the metal cabinet frame. Reduce the frequency of door openings.

3.1.3 The door or drawer is opened too frequently or for too long each time.

3.1.4 Food containers or liquids are left open. Let hot foods cool to room temperature and cover foods and liquids.


Water droplets collect in the lower crisper drawer areas.

3.2.1 Humidity settings are set too high. It is normal for some wet air to collect inside the enclosed crisper. To reduce the accumulation of moisture, lower the humidity setting and/or raise the fresh food compartment temperature.





Water forms at underside of the crisper glass covers.

3.3.1 Moisture given off from wet foods.

3.3.2 Door seal leaks or frequent door openings in humid environment.

Water/humidity/frost on the outside of the fridge


Wet air forms droplets of water on the outside edges of the fridge.

4.1.1 Warm, humid air in the environment mixes with cooler air at the door gasket areas of the fresh food and freezer compartments causing condensation.

Solution When placing foods in the fridge first pat them with a dry cloth to remove excess moisture. Check the door gaskets and reduce door openings. Possibly raise fresh food temperature.

A small amount of dew or water moisture is normal. It is best to wipe it down with a dry cloth to improve performance.

A slight increase in the compartment temperatures can reduce this moisture formation. Check door gasket for proper seal and clean.

Automatic ice maker


The ice maker does not work properly.

5.1.1 Ice cubes are sticking together. Take out the lump of ice cubes, crush it and then return only the separated ice cubes back to the ice cube container. See above.


Ice cubes are too large or too small.

5.1.2 Ice cubes may end up sticking together if stored too long.

5.2.1 Ice maker water supply set incorrectly. Adjust the ice maker water supply.

Cold water & ice dispenser




Cold water not dispensing.

6.1.1 The freezer or refrigerator door is not fully closed.

The water supply pipe is not open.

Problem Cause Solution

The fridge has a bad odour


The inside of the fridge is dirty.

7.1.1 The inside walls, shelves, and door bins need cleaning.

7.1.2 Food in the fridge has been stored beyond its useful life. Clean all inside surfaces with warm water and a clean soft damp cloth then wipe dry. Wrap and cover foods to extend useful food life.

The door is hard to open and/or close


The door has a closing problem. 8.1.1 The door may have food articles or packages that are obstructing closure.

8.1.2 The level of the refrigerator is causing the door to shift out of position.

8.1.3 The door could be hitting against adjacent cabinets or appliances. Reposition the shelves, door bins, or internal containers to allow the door to close. Make sure the floor is level using sturdy materials that are also non flammable. Provide a good 25 mm (1”) clearance on all

3 sides and on top of the cabinet so doors can open and close freely.




The compressor does not work.

The fridge operates frequently or operates for a long time.

9.1.1 The refrigerator is in deep freeze cooling.

9.1.2 The refrigerator is not powered on. This is normal for a refrigerator that goes into deep freeze automatically. The period of deep freeze cooling lasts about 30 minutes. Make sure the plug is inserted all the way into the power outlet. Has the circuit breaker tripped? Check and change to a new 13 A fuse and/or reset the circuit breaker. Check the electrical supply to the room. Call the local electricity company.

9.2.1 The room temperature or ambient temperature is high.

9.2.2 The ice maker is in operation. This is normal – the ice maker adds extra work load in the refrigerator.

9.2.3 The doors are frequently opened and closed. Try to reduce frequency of door or drawer openings.

9.2.4 The control settings in the freezer and fresh food compartments are set to cold level.

9.2.5 Door seals may be dirty, frayed or cracked. It is normal for the fridge to operate continuously. Raise up the compartment temperatures slightly and allow 24 hours to reach new balance. Clean off the gaskets.



The compressor frequently cycles on and off.

The light is out.


A beeping noise from inside the fridge or freezer.

9.3.1 The compartment temperature sensors keep the fridge at the set points causing the compressor to cycle.

10.1.1 The light switch is blocked somehow with debris or food particles.

10.1.2 The fridge power is off.

11.1.1 A door is open for over 60 seconds. This is normal. The fridge compressor will provide the required cooling level. Disconnect the power supply cord plug.

Locate the light switch on the food liner wall and move it to see if pressing the switch in and out a few times can dislodge the food. Make sure the power cord plug is fully engaged into the wall outlet socket. This is normal and will repeat every 1 minute until the door is closed.
