Hints & Tips
In this chapter practical hints and ideas are given about how
to use the appliance to reach maximum efficiency.
Environmental information is also supplied..
Normal Operating Sounds
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when the
refrigerant is pumped through the coils or tubing.
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being
pumped round and you will hear a whirring sound or
pulsating noise from the compressor.
A thermostat controls the compressor and you will hear
a faint 'click' when the thermostat cuts in and out.
Food Storage
To obtain the best performance from your appliance:
Do not store warm food or evaporating liquid.
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it straight
away.The use of an insulated container is advisable.When
you arrive home, place the frozen food in the freezer
compartment immediately.
Do not push food together too closely.
Do not store food uncovered.
Ensure that food placed in the freezer compartment is
dated and labelled and used in date order to ensure that
food is consumed at its best.
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
airtight seal.
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 by
the manufacturer.
13
In the Event of a Power
Failure
If there is a power failure during the storage of frozen
foods, keep the door closed. If the temperature within
your freezer compartment should rise, do not refreeze
the food without checking its condition. The following
guidelines should assist you:
Ice Cream: Once thawed should be discarded.
Fruits & Vegetables: If soft should be cooked and used
up.
Breads & Cakes: Can be refrozen without danger.
Shellfish: Should be refrigerated and used up quickly.
Cooked Dishes: i.e. casseroles should be refrigerated
and used up.
Large Pieces of Meat: Can be refrozen providing
there are still ice crystals remaining within them.
Small Joints: Should be cooked and can then be
refrozen as cooked dishes.
Chicken: Should also be cooked and refrozen as a fresh
dish.

Maintenance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance of cleaning work is carried
out DISCONNECT the appliance from the
ELECTRICITY SUPPLY.
Defrosting
The refrigerator automatically defrosts every time the
compressor stops.The water is discharged, via the pipe, into
a tray located behind the appliance, where it evaporates.
Important
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 salad drawer(s). Use
the special cleaner provided which you will find already
inserted into the discharge hole.
While in operation the ****-star compartment becomes
progressively covered with frost.
This frost, which acts as an insulator and thus prevents the cold
from reaching the food should be removed whenever the
thickness of the frost exceeds 6 mm (1/4”).
To carry out complete defrosting proceed as follows:
1. Remove any food from inside the ****-star
compartment, wrap it in several sheets of newspaper
and store in a cool dry place.
2. Turn the thermostat knob to position << 0 >>. To
accelerate defrosting, place a bowl of hot water inside
the compartment (with a piece of cardboard underneath
the bowl as protection).
3. Remove any loose pieces of ice as soon as possible.
4. When defrosting is completed, clean and dry thoroughly.
Turn the thermostat knob to a medium position to
restart the appliance.
After letting the appliance run for at least half an hour
replace the previously removed food into the **** -star
compartment.
When defrosting it is not necessary to remove the foods
from the inner door and the refrigerator compartment.
Internal Cleaning
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water and
bicarbonate of soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water). Rinse and
dry thoroughly.
Do not use detergents, abrasive powders, highly
perfumed cleaning products, wax polishes or
cleaning products containing bleach or alcohol.
Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to
ensure they are clean and free from debris.
External Cleaning
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water.
Once or twice a year dust the condenser (black grill) and
the compressor at the back of the appliance with a brush
or vacuum cleaner, as an accumulation of dust will affect
the performance of the appliance and cause excessive
electricity consumption.
Changing the Light Bulb
Should the light fail to work you can change it as below:
Disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply.
Remove the lamp cover retaining screws, then take the
lamp cover off in the direction of the arrow and the bulb
can be changed. (Type of the bulb: 230 V, 15 W, E 14
thread)
After changing the bulb replace the lamp cover, and
retaining screws and reconnect the appliance to the
electricity supply.
Important
A temperature rise of the frozen food packs during
defrosting may shorten their storage life.
Never use sharp metal tools to scrape off frost from the
evaporator as you could damage it beyond repair
When the appliance is not in
use
When the appliance is not in use for long periods
disconnect from the electricity supply, empty all of the
food and clean the appliance, leaving the door ajar to
prevent unpleasant smells.
16
