Safety note
If this new appliance, provided with a magnetic door
closure, replaces one which is equipped with a spring
closure, you are advised to ensure that the door of
the discarded refrigerator can no longer be closed
from the outside.
This is to avoid children accidentally shutting them-
selves inside the fridge and thus endangering their
Position the appliance well away from sources of heat
(radiators, stoves, cooking appliances, direct
sunlight, etc.).
The best performance is obtained with a room
temperature of between +10% and +32%C. If the
temperature drops below this level, there is a low
ambient temperature switch situated below the ther-
mostat housing (see page 7) which should be acti-
The appliance can be fitted next to other kitchen units
as long as the air can circulate freely (see figure). It is
important that the bottom grill is not obstructed as the
air must circulate freely through this grill.
For the cooling unit to work efficiently the appliance
should be located in a dry atmosphere.
Your fridge/freezer will be heavy when loaded with
food and must be stood on a strong firm floor. it
should also be level.
The appliance is provided with two levelling feet
located at the front, and two rear castors for easy
movement. The refrigerator should be levelled accu-
rately, adjusting the feet as necessary so that it is
tilted slightly backwards to facilitate closure of the
doors. |
Make sure the appliance is upright and all adjusters
are in firm contact with the floor so that the cabinet
does not rock in any direction.
Connecting to the mains
Before you use your fridge/freezer, check that the
voltage shown on the data label inside the cabinet.
conforms with your mains supply.
The mains lead of the fridge/freezer is fitted with a
non-rewireable moulded-on 13 amp plug containing a
13 amp fuse. If the fuse requires replacing at any
time, the fuse cover/carrier should be removed, using
a small screwdriver to lever it out. The old fuse
should be replaced by a 13 amp ASTA approved BS
1362 fuse and the fuse cover/carrier must be refitted
before the piug is used again.
If the fuse cover/carrier is lost, it must be replaced by
one of the same colour as that of the coloured insert
in the base of the plug. In no circumstances must
the plug be used without a correct fuse cover/
carrier fitted.
If the plug supplied on the fridge/freezer mains lead
is not suitable for the socket outlet in your home, it
should be cut off and disposed of safely, or
destroyed, to avoid any possible shock hazard
resulting from the plug being inserted into a 13 amp
socket elsewhere in the house. A suitable replace-
ment plug should then be fitted as given below. (If a
13 amp plug and socket are not used, the circuit
supplying the freezer should contain a 10 amp fuse).
The wires in the mains lead of this appliance are
coloured in accordance with the following code:
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead may not
correspond with the coloured markings identifying the
terminal in your plug, proceed as follows:
Connect the GREEN-and-YELLOW coloured wire to
the plug terminal marked letter E or earth symbol ©
or coloured green or green-and-yellow.
Connect the BLUE coloured wire to the plug terminal
marked letter N or coloured black.
Connect the BROWN coloured wire to the plug termi-
nal marked letter L or coloured red.
If at any time a replacement mains lead is required,
the cross sectional area of its conductors must not be
less than 0.75 mm?
The cover of the terminal box can be removed to gain
access to the mains lead terminals after releasing the
two clips with a small screwdriver, but remember to
first disconnect the plug from the electricity
supply socket.
However, we recommend that this operation be
carried out by a member of the Electrolux Service
Organisation or a qualified electrician.
As a general guide to fitting any plug
Ensure the lengths of wire inside the plug are
prepared correctly.
Connections should be firmly made after all
conductor strands are entered into the terminal posts.
When preparing the cable ends take care not to
damage the outer sheath, or the insulation
surrounding the inner conductors.
Tighten all screws.
Replace the top cover of the plug and secure.

Starting up
After cleaning and positioning the appliance, connect
the fridge freezer to the mains (see page 5) and set
the temperature as follows:
Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the fridge and freezer is
regulated by a single thermostat with 6 functional
positions and one “stop” (®) position.
Position 1 minimum cold
Position 6 maximum cold
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position; posi-
tion 3 or 4 is usually the most suitable.
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the fridge depends on room temperature, how
often the door is opened, how much food is stored
and the position of the appliance, and therefore may
require slight adjustments from time to time.
If the fridge is not defrosting correctly, check the ther-
mostat setting. If a very low temperature has been
selected, the motor will work continuously, which in
turn prevents the defrost cycle from operating.
To ensure that correct defrosting is taking place, a
lower number should be selected on the thermostat.
“You should notice that the motor cuts out from time to
time, which indicates that the defrosting is now
To return the appliance to a lower temperature, turn
the thermostat to a higher number. However you
should turn the setting lower occasionally to allow
automatic defrosting to take place.
If the room temperature drops below 16 degrees
centigrade, you will need to check the temperature
setting. A switch is located beside the thermostat
knob. The operating position is where the switch is
depressed (the built-in light is on).
You should ensure that this switch is used correctly. It
is most likely that the switch will need to be depressed
throughout the winter to allow for the low overnight
temperatures. No damage can be caused by leaving
the switch in this position for a period of time. During
the Spring, release the switch.

B - Ambient switch
The coldest area of the refrigerator is the lower part, above the fruit and vegetable drawer.
For the best performance from your refrigerator, al-
ways follow these rules:
E make sure the appliance is installed correctly.
M never put hot drinks or food into the refrigerator,
leave them to cool to room temperature first.
m cover food, especially if strong smelling.
Em Space out the food so that air can circulate freely
around it.
m don't block the gap between the front part of the
shelves and the back. |
Freshness control
The fruit and vegetable compartment can accumulate
moisture depending on the type of food stored.
To regulate the build-up of damp air in this compart-
ment there is a grill which can be adjusted. ‘For
salads and leafy vegetables, a high moisture content
will ensure that they retain their freshness but root
vegetables such as turnips require a less moist
The adjuster allows you to select the best conditions
for your food, the atmosphere will be dryer the more
the grill is opened.
Helpful hygiene tips
Always wash your hands with soapy water and dry
them with a clean towel before handling food.
Keep work surfaces clean. Do not use the same work
surface for raw and cooked food without washing it
thoroughly in between.
Use clean kitchen roll wherever possible for cleaning
up food. If you use a dishcloth be sure to boil it
Regularly remove suspect food from: your fridge and
clean the interior with a solution of bicarbonate of
soda in warm water (1 tablespoon to 1 litre of water).
Never allow spills to dry and harden.
Regularly check the fridge door seal to ensure that it
is clean and free from bits and pieces and sticky
Make sure that food is used before its “best before”
Cool food as quickly as possible but don’t place in
fridge or freezer until cool. (Leave food in as cool a
place as possible in order that it can be placed in the
fridge or freezer without delay).
Do not store food uncovered.
Do not mix raw and cooked meat, they must be in
separate containers. Take care not to let the meat
juices drip onto other food. If the meat does arip
remove everything and clean thoroughly.
The symbol means that your freezer will store
food at —18°C (0°F) for long term storage and will
also freeze fresh food.
Storing frozen food
Your freezer compartment has the following capa-
Net Storage Volume 2.9 cu ft
“Weight of Stored Food
“(This is a standard measurement and the actual
capacity depends upon the density and sizes of food.
The above figures are based on an average density
of 0.32 kg per litre).
Pre-packed commercially frozen food should be
stored in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions
for 3 star frozen food compartments and should be
put into the freezer as soon as possible after
purchase. Your freezer provides for long term storage
which generally means up to 3 months but the length
of storage time can vary and it is important to follow
the recommended times shown on packets of
commercially frozen food.
Storage times for home prepared frozen foods are |
given on pages 14, 15 and 16.
> ! .
10 | 4
If your fridge/freezer breaks down or the power fails,
don’t open the freezer door and the frozen food won't
be affected for up to 15 hours, providing that the door
Is not opened.
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidently
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and it has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked then
refrozen. (Note that some items must be thawed
completely before cooking - see page 12).
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
Starting up
In any 24 hours you can freeze as much as 4 kg of
fresh food.
Existing frozen food should be re-arranged to leave
space on the top shelf for freezing. The packets to be
frozen should be placed on the top shelf in contact
with the refrigerated surface as far as possible and
spaced apart to allow cold air to circulate between
them. They should not touch existing packets. Leave
the thermostat at its usual setting.
The products for freezing should be placed in the
upper drawer and then transferred to the lower
drawers so that the top compartment is left free for
the next freezing operation. | ’
To freeze fresh food after starting up the appliance for
the first time or after a period of non use it is neces-
1) to position the thermostat to a medium setting e.g
setting 4.
2) to leave the appliance operating for at least 4
3) to place the fresh food to be frozen in the upper
if you wish to fast freeze fresh food the following
operation has to be carried out:
1) position the thermostat to the maximum setting (6)
2) leave the appliance operating for at least 4 hours
3) place the food to be frozen in the upper drawer
4) adjust the thermostat dial back to No. 4, 24 hours
after the fresh food has been placed in the freezer
Following this second procedure, the fridge inner
temperature could drop below 0°C. If this happens
while freezing, adjust the thermostat dial to a setting
corresponding to a higher inner temperature.
To freeze fresh food when the appliance is operating
with other frozen food in the freezer compartment it is
1. to depress the switch located underneath the ther-
mostat housing to letter D 24 hours before placing the
fresh food to be frozen in the freezer compartment.
2. to place the fresh food to be frozen in the upper
3. to depress the switch located underneath the ther-
mostat housing to letter N 24 hours after the introduc-
tion of fresh food in the freezer compartment.
If you wish fo fast freeze food the foliowing operations
have to be done:
1. depress the ambient switch located underneath
the thermostat housing 24 hours before placing the
fresh food to be frozen in the freezer compartment.
2. place the fresh food in the upper drawer and, at
the same time position the thermostat to the
maximum setting.
3. release the switch located underneath the ther-
mostat housing and position the thermostat dial to a
medium setting 24 hours after the fresh food intro-
duction into the freezer compartment.
Some useful hints for freezing
The foods to be frozen must be fresh and of the best
The size of each pack should be small enough to
ensure that it is used in one go. Small packs freeze
more quickly and uniformly, and give better results.
Frozen food, once thawed, must not be refrozen.
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food,
salt reduces the storage time.
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil, so that they adhere to the food and
provide an air-tight seal. Stick a label on each pack
showing the contents and date of freezing. This
makes it easy to check storage times.
Never place hot food, bottles or cans of fizzy drink in
the freezer as they may explode. Containers with a lid
“must not be filled to the brim.
Do not open the door, or place extra fresh food in the
freezer next to food which is already frozen, as this
could cause the temperature of the frozen food to
rise and its quality and storage life to reduce.
Storing ready-frozen food
Storing ready-frozen foods is quite straightforward.
The packs can be placed beside each other or on top
of each other.
You are strongly advised to place ready-frozen food
in the freezer compartment as quickly as possible
after purchase and we therefore recommend that you
buy them last. Also ensure that the external pack-
aging is intact.
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of refrozen
water droplets on the pack could indicate that the
product has not been kept at a suitable temperature
and that it may have lost its original quality. Partially
thawed food must not be refrozen, it must be
consumed within 24 hours. Never exceed the storage
times indicated.
Do not open the freezer door too often and do not
leave it open longer than necessary.
In the event of a power cut, the food in the freezer will
not be affected if the power cut is short and if the
freezer is full. Do not open the door. Should the food
begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must
not be refrozen.
Food can be thawed in a number of ways, depending
on the type of food and the size of the packs.
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the refrigera-
tion compartment and small pieces of meat or poultry
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food, follow the
oven instructions.
Making ice cubes
The freezer compartment includes an ice store
enabling you to build up a supply of ice cubes for a
forthcoming party or spell of hot weather when ice
will be in demand. The ice tray fits in the top of the
First, make ice cubes by filling the ice tray with fresh
drinking water 3/4 full to allow the ice 10 expand and
place it in the top of the ice store or in one of the
freezer drawers.
When the ice cubes have formed, hold the tray
upside down over the ice store and twist the tray
along its length, allowing the loosened cubes to fall
into the store. Several makings of ice cubes can be
accommodated and, of course, you can also leave
the ice tray full of cubes, conveniently placed on top
of the ice store.
Important points to remember
adjust the level of your fridge/freezer before loading it
with food — see page 4.
cover or wrap liquids and foods, particularly those
with strong odours.
put vegetables and salads in the salad drawer, in
plastic bags.

with this.
keep the refrigerator drain outlet clear; if blocked,
carefully clean it with a piece of flexible curtain wire.

they could cause frost burns. |
use a sharp instrument to hasten defrosting or
remove ice trays.
use the wet tray in any other domestic appliance.
The fridge compartment is defrosted automatically.
Defrost water from the cooling plate runs out of the
drain and onto a tray on the motor compressor where
it IS evaporated. This process is completely auto-
matic. Droplets of water on the cooling plate during
defrosting are quite normal and will freeze on the
plate afterwards.
To avoid defrost water overflowing into the fridge,
- periodically clean the water discharge hole in the
centre of the V shaped drip collector at the back of
the refrigerator compartment behind the fruit and
vegetable drawer.
Use the special cleaner supplied with the instruction
In the Freezer Compartment frost accumulates on the
refrigerated shelves during normal working and
should occasionally be removed using a stiff bristle
brush or a plastic scraper.
Heavy frosting (about 1/4” thick) will reduce the
freezer’s efficiency and therefore complete defrosting
should then be carried out, probably at 6 month inter-
vals depending on usage. Preferably you should do
this when there is little or no food in the freezer in the
following manner:
1. Any remaining frozen food should be placed in
another freezer, or placed in cardboard boxes and
wrapped in blankets, or layers of paper. Put in a cool
2. Switch off at the wall socket and remove the plug.
3. Leave the door open and insert the ice scraper
under the channel in the centre of the lower part of
the appliance. Place a low-sided container beneath
the scraper to collect the water.
4. Defrosting can be speeded up by putting bowls of
hot (not boiling) water on the shelves and loosening
the frost with a stiff bristle brush or a plastic scraper.
5. After defrosting clean and dry the interior as
explained under “Cleaning” and replace the scraper
in one of the drawers.
6. Replace the plug, switch on, replace any frozen
food, and close the door.
If the temperature of frozen food is allowed to rise
unduly during defrosting, its storage life may be

Before all operations, disconnect the appliance from
the mains.
The most suitable time to clean your fridge/freezer is
after defrosting the freezer and remember to first
switch off and pull out the plug.
Both compartments and all the fittings should be
thoroughly cleaned with a clean cloth wrung out in a
solution of one teaspoonful of bicarbonate of soda in
each pint of water.
Never use detergents, abrasive powders, highly
perfumed cleaning materials or wax polishes to clean
the interior. These will damage the surfaces and
leave a strong smell.
The outside should be occasionally dusted or wiped
over with a damp cloth and a small amount of deter-
gent. But not the door seal, which shouid be cleaned
only with soap and water and thoroughly dried.
A small amount of wax polish applied every few
months will maintain the gloss finish of the outside.
The motor compressor and condenser at the rear
should also be cleaned of dust occasionally using a
brush, but make sure the fridge/freezer is unplugged
when you do this.
Occasionally, strong smelling food may leave the
fridge with a slight odour. Placing a small dish of
bicarbonate of soda powder in the fridge should
slowly absorb these smells. The dish should be
refilled periodically.
The freezer drawers can be easily removed for more
thorough cleaning. Pull out fully and lift, unhooking
them, from the catches.
For repositioning, raise the catches, insert and slide
Going on holiday
Don’t switch off at the mains if you intend to leave
food in the fridge and/or freezer.
For 2 days or less there is no need to remove any
_ food from the fridge. For up to 1 week remove all food
except eggs, butter and bacon.
If you are leaving both the fridge and freezer
compartments empty, switch off at the wall socket,
defrost, clean and dry, and leave both doors open.
Replacing the bulb
Should the interior light fail to work, first switch off
and pull out the mains plug, and then replace the
bulb as follows:
Unscrew the bulb in a clockwise direction and remove
it from the appliance.
Replace the bulb in an anti-clockwise direction with a
new S.E.S. 10 watt bulb (available from your local
Electrolux Service Centre as listed on page 19).
Before you call for a Service Engineer, carry out
these simple checks:
Is there a power failure?
Check your house lights. If so, keep the freezer door
closed until the power is restored.
Is the plug firmly connected to the wall socket and is
the socket switched on?
Check the power supply by plugging in another appli-
ance or a table lamp.
ls the fuse in the plug intact and are the wires in the
mains lead correctly connected to the plug?
(See “Connecting to the Mains”, page 5).
Have you turned the thermostat to the correct
Have the doors been left open causing the tempera-
ture to rise?
Sometimes the freezer door will be difficult to open
shortly after you have closed it. Dont worry; this is
due to a pressure difference which will quickly equa-
lise and allow the door to open normally.
