The food in the refrigerator is frozen • Is the temperature controller in the fridge set to the colder temperature? • Is the surrounding temperature too low? • Did you put food with a high water content in the refrigerator? There are unusual noises • Check that the appliance is installed on a stable, level floor. • Is the back of the appliance too near to the wall? • Have any foreign objects fallen behind or under the appliance? • Is the noise coming from the compressor in the appliance? • A ticking sound may be heard inside the appliance; this is normal. This sound occurs when the various accessories contract or expand. The front corners and sides of the appliance are warm and condensation starts to form • Heat-proof pipes are installed in the front corners of the appliance to prevent condensation from forming. When the surrounding temperature rises, this may not always be effective. However, this is not abnormal. • In very humid weather, condensation may form on the outer surface of the appliance when the moisture in the air comes into contact with the cool surface of the appliance. You can hear a liquid babbling in the appliance • This is the refrigerant, which cools the inside of the appliance. There is a bad smell inside the appliance • You did not seal the food. • If there is a bad smell, clean the low temperature catalyzing deodorizer. • Store foods covered and clean the cold inlet. There is a layer of frost on the appliance’s walls • Is the air outlet on the appliance plugged in? • Space the food out as much as possible to improve ventilation. • Is the door fully closed? Condensation forms on the inside wall of the appliance and around vegetables • Food with a high water content is stored uncovered with a high humidity level or the door has been left open for a long time. • Store the food with a cover or in sealed containers. 12 DA68-00611A 4/20/05 8:04 PM Page 13 USAGE PRECAUTIONS Store food with a high water content at the front of a refrigerator shelf. Store hot food in the appliance after it has cooled. • If you store cold food, you save on electricity and improve refrigeration. Tips Power Saving Tips • Install the appliance in a cool, dry room with adequate ventilation. Ensure that it is not exposed to direct sunlight and never put it near a direct source of heat (radiator, for example). • Never block any vents or grilles on the appliance. • Allow warm food to cool down before placing it in the appliance. • Put frozen food in the refrigerator to thaw. You can then use the low temperatures of the frozen products to cool food in the refrigerator. • Defrost the freezer when ice builds up. A thick coat of ice will impair the transfer of cold to the frozen products, thereby increasing power consumption. • Do not keep the door of the appliance open for too long when putting food in or taking food out. The shorter the time for which the door is opened, the less ice will form in the freezer. • When freezing food or storing it in the freezer, place the food directly on the freezer elements in the top container. 13 DA68-00611A 4/20/05 8:04 PM Page 14 VIEW OF YOUR FRIDGE / FREEZER Basic Model Indor lamp freezing room, controller the Freezer Temperature Freezing room shelf Egg Tray Guard freezer Controller the refrigerator Temperature High humity special fresh room Re-enforced glass shelf Guard varity Super high humity vegetable room Jumbo guard bottle Door in Door type (ELECTRONIC CONTROL) Indor lamp freezing room Freezing room shelf Egg Tray Guard freezer High humity special fresh room Re-enforced glass shelf Door in Door Guard varity Super high humity vegetable room Jumbo guard bottle 14 DA68-00611A 4/20/05 8:04 PM English Page 15 Correct Disposal of This Product (Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment) (Applicable in the European Union and other European countries with separate collection systems) This marking shown on the product or its literature, indicates that it should not be disposed with other household wastes at the end of its working life.
