Using the Appliance
Before Use
Remove all securing tapes.
Wash the inside of the appliance with lukewarm water
with a little bicarbonate of soda added (5 ml to 0,5 litre of
water). Do not use soap or detergent as the smell may
linger. Dry the appliance thoroughly.
Do not use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning products, wax polishes or
products containing alcohol.
Storage time and temperature of
foods
) To Start the Appliance
1. Allow the appliance to stand for 2 hrs after installation.
The enclosed charts at the end of the instruction book
give information about storage time in the frozen and the
fresh food compartment.
2. Plug in the appliance and switch on at the mains supply.
The storage times quoted are intended as a guide only.
3. Turn the thermostat control to the required setting. A
setting of 3 - 4 is usually suitable for normal operation
(see thermostat control).
4. Leave the appliance for approximately 4 hours for the
correct temperature to be reached before placing
food inside.
Thermostat Control
The thermostat control situated inside the refrigerator
regulates the temperature of the larder compartment.
Thermostat control is marked from 1-5 the higher the
number, the colder the setting.

Small bottles, soft drinks
Large bottles, drinks
How to use the four-star frozen food
compartment
The frozen food compartment is separated from the fresh
food compartment.
Place the food to be frozen into this compartment.
Depending on the position of the thermostatic control
knob and the temperature in the compartment
(-18 °C or lower), frozen food can be stored here.
Do not allow fresh food to come into contact with foods
that are already frozen.
How to make ice cubes
Fill the supplied ice cube tray ¾ full with water and place
in the freezer compartment. Turning up the thermostat
control will speed up the freezing process, but remember
to turn the thermostat control back to its original position.
To release the ice cubes, twist the tray along its length.
Do not use sharp or pointed items to remove a frozen ice
cube tray from the freezer compartment.
Storage Shelves
The shelves in the refrigerator compartment are
adjustable to allow storage of large items.
The shelves can be re-arranged by opening the door to
90°.
The door shelves are also adjustable.
To allow the air to circulate within the fridge compartment do not cover the glass shelves with
paper or trays.
7
Hints & T ips
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 much.
Do not store uncovered food.
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.
Energy Saving Advice
Do not install the appliance close to sources of heat,
such as a boiler or radiator.
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated room
and make sure that the air openings of the appliance
are not obstructed.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by packing
all foodstuffs into airtight packages before placing
them in the freezer compartment.
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should be
placed in the fridge compartment before being transferred to the freezer compartment.
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long periods or
opening the door too frequently as warm air will enter
the cabinet and cause the compressor to often switch
on unnecessarily.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the door
from closing properly.
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.

Maint enance & Cleaning
Before any maintenance of cleaning work is carried out DISCONNECT the appliance from the
ELECTRICITY SUPPLY.
4.
When defrosting is completed, clean and dry thoroughly.
Turn the thermostat knob to a medium position to
restart the appliance.
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 grille)
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.
After letting the appliance run for at least half an hour
replace the previously removed food into the **** -star
compartment.
Defrosting
When defrosting it is not necessary to remove the foods
from the inner door and the refrigerator compartment.
The refrigerator automatically defrosts every time the
compressor stops. The water is discharged, via the pipe,
into a tray located below 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.
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.
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.
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.
