EN 9 BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE Electrical connection (For UK type plug) For your safety please read the following information Warning: This appliance must be earthed. This appliance operates from 220-240 volts and should be protected by a 13 amp fuse in the plug. The appliance is supplied with a standard 13 amp 3-pin mains plug fitted with a 13-amp fuse. Should the fuse require replacement, it must be replaced with a fuse rated at 13 amp and approved to BS1362. If the mains plug which is fitted is unsuitable for the socket outlet in your home or is removed for any other reason, please follow the instructions below on how to wire a 13 amp 3 pin plug.. How to wire a 13 amp plug. Important The wires in the mains lead on this appliance are coloured in accordance with the following code: GREEN/YELLOW Earth BROWN Live BLUE Neutral Green and Yellow - Earth FUSE 13 Amps Blue – Neutral Brown – Live Cord Clamp As the colours may not correspond with the markings identifying the terminals in your plug proceed as follows. The green and yellow wire must be connected to the terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter E or with the earth symbol green and yellow. or coloured The blue wire must be connected to the terminal marked N. The brown wire must be connected to the terminal marked L. You must make sure the lead is firmly secured under the cord clamp. EN 10 BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE Before using your fridge freezer • When using your fridge for the first time, or after transportation, keep it in an upright position for at least 3 hours before plugging into the mains. This allows efficient operation and prevents damage to the compressor. • Your fridge may have a smell when it is operated for the first time. This is normal and the smell will fade away when your fridge starts to cool. Information on the Frost Free technology The Frost Free refrigerators are different from the other static refrigerators in terms of their operational system. In normal fridges, the humidity entering the fridge due to opening the door and the humidity inherent in the food causes freezing in the freezer compartment. To defrost the frost and ice in the freezer compartment, you are periodically required to turn off the fridge, place the food that needs to be kept frozen in a separately cooled container and remove the ice gathered in the freezer compartment. The situation is completely different in no-frost fridges. Dry and cold air is blown into the fridge and freezer compartments homogeneously and evenly from several points via a blower fan. Cold air dispersed homogeneously and evenly between the shelves cools all of your food equally and uniformly, thus preventing humidity and freezing.

If the noises persist; • Is your appliance stable? Are the legs adjusted? • Is there anything behind your fridge-freezer? • Are the shelves or dishes on the shelves vibrating? Re-place the shelves and/or dishes if this is the case. • Are the items placed on your fridge-freezer vibrating? Normal Noises; Cracking (Ice cracking) Noise: • During automatic defrosting. • When the appliance is cooled or warmed (due to expansion of appliance material). Short cracking: Heard when the thermostat switches the compressor on/off. BEFORE CALLING FOR AFTER SALES SERVICE Compressor noise (Normal motor noise): This noise means that the compressor operates normally Compressor may cause more noise for a short time when it is activated. Bubbling noise and splash: This noise is caused by the flow of the refrigerant in the tubes of the system. Water flow noise: Normal flow noise of water flowing to the evaporation container during defrosting. This noise can be heard during defrosting. Air Blowing Noise (Normal fan noise): This noise can be heard in No-Frost refrigerator during normal operation of the system due to the circulation of air. If there is water in the lower part of the fridge freezer, Check that; • The drain hole for defrost water is not clogged (Use defrost drain plug to clean the drain hole) About the water dispenser; If the water flow is abnormal; Check that; • The tank is well installed. • The tank gaskets are well assembled. If dripping occurs: Check that: • The tap is well assembled. • The tap gaskets are well assembled. IMPORTANT NOTES: • If the appliance is not used for long time (for example during the summer holidays) unplug and clean the appliance and leave the door open to prevent the formation of mildew and smell. • To stop the appliance completely, unplug from the mains socket (for cleaning and when the doors are left open) • If there is still a problem with your fridge freezer although you have followed the instructions in this book, please consult your nearest authorized service center. • The lifetime of your appliance is stated and declared by the Department of Industry. The length of time for retaining parts required for the proper operation of the appliance is 10 years. EN 29 EN 30 TIPS FOR SAVING ENERGY 1.Install the appliance in a cool, well ventilated room, but not in direct sunlight and not near a heat source (radiator, cooker, etc.). Otherwise use an insulating plate. 2. Allow warm food and drinks to cool down outside the appliance. 3. When thawing frozen food, place it in the refrigerator compartment. The low temperature of the frozen food will help to cool the refrigerator compartment when it is thawing. This will help to save energy. If the frozen food is put out, it results in a waste of energy. 4.Cover drinks or other liquids when placing them in the appliance Otherwise humidity increases in the appliance. Therefore, the working time gets longer. Also covering drinks and other liquids helps to preserve smell and taste. 5.Try to avoid keeping the doors open for long periods or opening the doors too frequently as warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the compressor to switch on unnecessarily often. 6.Keep the covers of the different temperature compartments (crisper, chiller ...etc. ) closed 7.Door gasket must be clean and pliable. Replace gaskets if worn. Help-line Insurance If after the previous checks there is still a fault, please contact the Montpellier Service Help-line below.
