Transportation, unpacking
Cleaning
It is recommended to deliver the
appliance in original packaging, in
vertical position considering the
protective warning on packaging.
After each transportation the appliance
must not be switched on for approx. 2
hours.
Unpack the appliance and check if there
are damages on it. Report possible
damages immediately to the place you
bought it. In that case retain packaging.
Remove every adhesive tape, which
ensure the parts not to move in the
appliance.
Wash the inside of the appliance using
lukewarm water and mild detergent. Use
soft cloth.
After cleaning wipe out the inside of the
appliance.
Placement
The ambient temperature has an effect
on the energy consumption and proper
operation of the appliance. When
26 electrolux
GB
placing, take into consideration that it is
practical to operate the appliance
between ambient temperature limits
according to the climate class that is
given in the chart below and can be
found in the data label.
Class of climate
SN
N
ST
Ambient temperature
+10 ... +32 °C
+16 ... +32 °C
+18 ... + 38 °C
If the ambient temperature goes below
the lower data the temperature of the
cooling compartment can go beyond the
prescribed temperature.
If the ambient temperature goes beyond
the upper data this means longer
operating time of the compressor,
increasing temperature in the freezer or
increasing energy consumption.
When placing the appliance ensure that it
stands level. This can be achieved by two
adjustable feet (1) at the bottom in front.
1-1 piece of distance washers (2) are
accessories of the adjustable feet. If
levelling the appliance requires, these
washers can be removed.
In case of gas or electric cooker 3 cm
must be left, when it is less put a 0,5 1 cm non-flam insulation between the
two appliances.
In case of oil or coal-fired stove the
distance must be 30 cm since they
give off more heat.
The refrigerator is designed to operate
when it is totally pushed to the wall.
When placing the refrigerator keep
minimal distances recommended
in figure.
A : placing it under a wall-cupboard
B : placing it freely
Switch and indicator unit
For the usage of the switching and
indicator unit see chapters "Putting it into
use", "Controlling the temperature" and
"Freezing".
2
1
Do not stand the appliance on a sunny
place or close to a radiator or cooker.
If it is unavoidable because of furnishing
and the appliance has to be stood near a
cooker take these minimum distances
into consideration:
Components of the appliance are as
follows:
A) Green indicator lamp
This lamp lights when the appliance is
under power, i.e. the mains plug is in
the mains socket.
B) Red indicator lamp
It lights up depending on the
temperature inside the appliance.
GB
It lights for a short time when starting
the appliance, placing fresh food into it
and when the temperature control
knob has been turned in direction to
lower temperatures.
It lights permanently when the
temperature inside the appliance is
too high (overloaded with warm food,
door stayed open or the door seal
does not close properly) or possibly
the appliance was broken down.
C) Yellow indicator lamp and freezer
switch
In the switched-on state of the switch
(pops up and lights by pressing) the
compressor operates continuously
thus providing for the coldest interior
temperature - achievable by the
freezer - needed for freezing.
D) Temperature control knob
This knob is provided for setting and
changing the temperature inside the
appliance.
Putting it into use
Put the plug into the mains socket. Turn
the thermostatic control knob according
to the figure. This time the red lamp starts
giving light, the compressor starts and
cooling begins shortly.
When the red light goes out the
temperature is sufficient and the
appliance is suitable for storing frozen
and deep-frozen foods.
electrolux 27
Controlling the temperature
The thermostatic controller interrupts the
operation of the appliance automatically
for more or less time depending on the
setting then restarts it assuring the
required temperature.
Setting the thermostat knob can be done
practically with a coin. Turning the control
knob clockwise cooling becomes more
and more intensive.
In the appliance -18 °C or lower
temperature can be reached if the
thermostat knob is set according to the
figure.
The thermostat can be switched off („0”
position), which means breaking the
circuit of the compressor i.e. stopping
cooling.
The temperature coming about in the
freezer is effected by not only the position
of the thermostatic control and the
ambient temperature, but frequency of
door openings and the quantity of food
put into it, etc.
In maximum position of the
thermostat - in case of increased
demand e.g. during heatwaves - the
compressor may operate continually.
This does not cause damages to the
appliance.
Freezing
Freezing different products should
always be done in the freezing
compartment after proper preparation.
Switch on the freezer switch (pops up
and lights by pressing) 4 hours before
freezing food of small quantities and
about 24 hours before freezing products
of larger quantities. This time the
compressor operates continuously to
reach the temperature necessary for
freezing.
Place in the foods to be frozen and let the
appliance operate for about 24 hours as
written above.
28 electrolux
GB
Then push the fast freezer switch again
(the yellow light will go out and the switch
turns to its original position).
The freezing tray is suitable for freezing
smaller fruits (raspberry, strawberry,
currant, etc.). Fruits should be put on the
tray in thin layers without packaging. After
freezing they can be packed and sorted
out then placed into the storing
compartments.
Storing
It is practical to replace frozen products
into the storing compartments (cages)
after freezing has finished so that to make
room in the freezing compartment for
another freezing.
Intermediate
freezing
does
not
deteriorate foods already stored.
How to make ice cubes
To make ice cubes fill the enclosed ice
cube tray with water and put it to the
frozen food compartment. Wetting the
bottom of the tray and setting
thermostatic control knob to maximum
stage can shorten preparing time. After
finishing do not forget to reset the
thermostatic control to the suitable stage.
Ready ice cubes can be taken out of the
tray under running water then twist or hit
it.
Some useful information and
advice
After opening and closing the door of
freezer vacuum will rise inside the
appliance because of the low
temperature. So wait 2-3 minutes after
closing the door - if you want to open it
again - while inner pressure equalises.
Take care of operating the freezer at a
position of thermostatic control so that
the inside temperature can never go
beyond -18 °C, since temperature
higher than this can deteriorate frozen
foods.
It is practical to make sure of faultless
operation of the appliance daily so as
to notice possible failure in time and
prevent deterioration of frozen foods.
Hints and ideas
In this chapter practical hints and ideas
are given about how to use the appliance
to reach maximum energy saving and
there is environmental information about
the appliance as well.
How to save energy
Avoid putting the appliance in a sunny
place and near anything that gives off
heat.
Be sure that the condenser and the
compressor are well ventilated. Do not
cover the sections where ventilation is.
Wrap products in tightly closing dishes
or cling film to avoid building up
unnecessary frost.
Avoid products put in the freezer
compartment to touch foods already
frozen.
Do not leave the door open longer
than
necessary
and
avoid
unnecessary openings.
Put warm foods into the appliance only
when they are at room temperature.
The condenser must be kept clean.
The appliance and
environment
This appliance does not contain gasses
which could damage the ozone layer, in
either its refrigerant circuit or insulation
materials. The appliance shall not be
discarded together with the urban refuse
and rubbish. Avoid damaging the cooling
unit, especially at the rear near the heat
exchanger. Information on your local
disposal sites may be obtained from your
municipal authorities.
GB
The materials used on this appliance
marked with the sympol
are
recyclable.
Maintenance
Defrosting
Bleeding part of the moisture of cooling
chamber in form of frost and ice goes
with the operation of the appliance.
Thick frost and ice has an insulating
effect, so it reduces cooling efficiency as
the temperature increases, it needs more
energy, at a certain thickness it does not
allow the door of the freezing
compartment to open, possibly the door
can be broken.
It is possible to scrape off and remove
smaller frost and ice with the enclosed
ice scraper.
The tray in figure is not a piece of
accessories to the appliance!
When ice coating is so thick that it can
not be removed with the frost scraper
defrosting is necessary. Its frequency
depends on usage.
How to defrost it:
Break the circuit of the appliance.
Take the frozen foods out of the
appliance and put them into a basket
lined with paper or cloth. Store them in a
possibly cool place or replace them into
a frozen or fresh food compartment of a
refrigerator.
Leave the door open.
electrolux 29
Sweep off the melting water occasionally
with a cloth or sponge in direction of
sides which gathers in the outlet channel
practically formed in the bottom of the
appliance and can be removed as
follows:
Put an tray high enough in front of the
appliance. Pull out defrost water outlet
placed in the middle of the bottom of the
appliance carefully in the direction of the
arrow. Defrost water will flow into the tray
through the outlet.
Defrosting process can be made quicker
by placing a pot or dish filled with warm
water to the cooling plate formed as a
shelf.
After defrosting wipe the surfaces and
push defrost water outlet back.
Apply voltage to the appliance.
After the red light has gone out put the
foods back.
Regular cleaning
It is practical to clean the inside of the
freezer and defrost it at a time.
Household cleaner or soap must not be
used.
After breaking the circuit wash the
appliance using lukewarm water and
wipe it.
Clean the door gasket with clean water.
After cleaning apply voltage to the
appliance.
It is recommended to remove the dust
and dirt collected on the back of the
appliance and the condenser once or
twice a year.

GB
When the refrigerator is not in
use
In case the appliance will not be used
for a long time follow these steps:
Remove plug from the mains socket.
Remove foods from the refrigerator.
Defrost and clean it as written before.
Leave the door open to avoid a build up
of air inside.
Trouble shooting
During operation of the appliance some
smaller but annoying trouble can often
occur, which does not require calling a
technician out. In the following chart
information is given about them to avoid
unnecessary charges on service.
We draw your attention that operation
of appliance goes with certain sounds
(compressor- and circulating sound).
This is not trouble, but means normal
operation.
We draw it to your attention again
that the appliance operates
discontinuously, so the stopping of
compressor does not mean being nocurrent. That is why you must not touch
the electrical parts of the appliance
before removing it from the mains
socket.
