IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR CORRECT DISPOSAL OF THE
PRODUCT IN ACCORDANCE WITH WEEE DIRECTIVE 2012/19/EU.
At the end of its working life, the product must not be disposed
of as urban waste. It must be taken to a special local authority
differentiated waste collection centre or to a dealer providing this
service.
Disposing of a household appliance separately avoids possible
negative consequences for the environment and health deriving from
inappropriate disposal and enables the constituent materials to be
recovered to obtain significant savings in energy and resources. As a
reminder of the need to dispose of household appliances separately,
the product is marked with a crossed-out wheeled dustbin .
Before First Use of the Fridge/Freezer
You must allow the fridge to settle for at least twenty four hours
prior to switching the power on.
It is recommended that you clean the interior of the appliance prior to
first use, using a solution of bicarbonate of soda and warm water then
thoroughly dry the interior.
The fridge may have an odour to it at first use. This will disappear
as the appliance cools.
This appliance has been designed with ease of use in mind but
please read the following instructions carefully to ensure you
familiarise yourself with the appliance and its operation. This will help
you to get the best results and also help to prevent you from being
charged for unnecessary service calls.
3
Please note:
The appliance will work continuously until it comes down to the
correct temperature.
If the appliance is switched off, you should allow five minutes
before switching it on again to prevent unnecessary damage to the
compressor.
Fridge Use
• Never put liquids in the refrigerator uncovered.
• Never put hot foods in the refrigerator. Warm food should
be allowed to cool to room temperature before being put
into the refrigerator.
• Nothing should rest against the rear wall of the
refrigerator, as this will cause frost and possible
condensation problems which will be difficult to remove.
• Make sure food is clean and any extra water is wiped
away before putting into the fridge.
• Wrap or cover food before putting into the fridge. This
will help prevent the loss of moisture, keep food fresh and
avoid unpleasant odours.
• Sort foods prior to storing. Any foods to be used soon
should be stored at the front of the shelf to prevent
deterioration caused by the door being open for
prolonged periods.
• Do not overfill the fridge. There should be sufficient space
between the foods to allow the cool air to circulate.
• Thawing frozen foods in the fridge compartment will help
to keep the temperature low and save energy.
4
Freezer Use
• The freezer compartments are designed to store only
frozen food.
• Never put hot or warm foods in the freezer, allow them to
cool fully before putting them into the freezer.
• Follow the instructions on the food packaging for storage
of frozen food. If no information is provided, foods
should not be stored for more than three months after the
purchase date.
• Store food in small packages (ideally less than 2.5kg).
This reduces the freezing time and improves the quality of
the food after thawing.
• Wrap food before putting into the freezer. To stop the
wrapping sticking together, ensure it is dry.
• Label the food before freezing with information including
type of food and dates of storage and expiry.
• Once food is thawed, it must not be refrozen. Only defrost
as much food as is required to prevent wastage.
• Bottled or canned drinks should not be stored in the
freezer compartments as they could explode.
• The maximum amount of fresh food that can be frozen
within a 24 hour period is 10 kg.
• Do not attempt to freeze more than the maximum amount.
• To freeze fresh food more quickly, switch on the super
freeze function a few hours prior to placing the food in the
freezer.
5
• Do not use the super freeze function more than once
in 72 hours. Use over the recommended time will place
unnecessary strain on the refrigeration system.

Door Open Alarm
This appliance is equipped with an alarm to alert you if a door is left
open.
In the event that a door is left open for more than a minute the
appliance will start beeping in short bursts, this continues every thirty
seconds until both doors are properly shut.
Defrosting the Fridge
The fridge is cooled by convection using cold air forced through
channels at the rear of the fridge. No defrosting is required.
13
Defrosting the Freezer
The freezer is frost free and as such is designed not to require
defrosting. If you notice ice on the back wall of the fridge then this
could be due to a number of factors including food items touching the
back wall or an ingress of warm air caused by a faulty door seal.
Care and Cleaning
Always disconnect the appliance from the power before any
cleaning or maintenance.
•Leave spaces between food items wherever possible to allow air to
flow between them.
•Avoid contact of oily or acidic foods with the rear and side walls.
Oils and acids can damage the liner material. If any such foods
come into contact with the walls, clean the spot with warm water
and bicarbonate of soda.
•The refrigerator and freezer sections should be cleaned using a
solution of bicarbonate of soda and lukewarm water. •Do not use abrasive products or detergents. After washing, rinse
and dry thoroughly.
•Clean the shelves and balconies separately by hand using soap and
water. Do not put them in the dishwasher.
•Keep the door seals clean to avoid damage to them and to help to
ensure that they continue to function correctly.
•Once cleaning is complete, then reconnect the power.
•If the appliance is not used for prolonged periods of time, unplug
and clean it. The doors should be left slightly open to prevent the
formation of mildew or odours.
