Yoghurt, sour cream 11. 6 Bottles, drinks Storage Shelf The shelf inside the appliance has a flap on the left side that makes storing large sized bottles possible. The door shelves taken out of appliance can be used for serving foods (fruit, salads, etc.) The Ice-making Compartment This compartment is suitable for the storing of commercially frozen food and for making and storing ice cubes. Hints & Tips Food Storage To obtain the best results from your appliance neither hot foods nor liquids which may evaporate, should be placed in the refrigerator. Keep the time between buying chilled food and placing it in your fridge as short as possible. Do not push food together too much, try to allow air to circulate around each item. Do not store food uncovered. Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and clean, refer to Cleaning and Maintenance. Frozen food storage 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 compartment as quickly as possible after purchase and we therefore recommend that you buy them last. Also ensure that the external packaging 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 ice-making compartment door too often and do not leave open longer than necessary. Important In the event of a power cut the food in the icemaking compartment will not be affected if the power cut is short and if the compartment is full. Do not open the door. Should the food begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must not be refrozen. Energy Saving Advice Do not install the cabinet close to sources of heat, such as a cooker, dishwasher or radiator. Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated room and make sure that the air openings of the cabinet are not obstructed. Always leave warm food to cool down to room temperature before placing in the fridge. 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 switch on unnecessarily often. Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the door from closing properly. It is advisable to periodically clean the refrigeration system at the back of the appliance with a duster or vacuum cleaner. 7 S t or age time char t Time and method of storage of fresh foods in the refrigerator Foods Storage time in days 3 4 5 6 x x x X x x x X x x Raw meat Cooked meat Roasted meat Raw minced meat Cooked minced meat Cold cuts 1 X X X X X X 2 X X X X X x x Fresh fish Cooked fish Tinned fish, open Fresh chicken Fried chicken Fresh duck, goose Roasted duck, goose Butter unopened Butter opened Milk Cream Sour cream Cheese (hard) Cheese (soft) Egg Spinach, sorrel Green peas, green beans Mushroom Carrot Tomato Cabbage Strawberry, raspberry, etc. Tinned fruits opened Cakes filled with cream X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X x X x X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X x x x X X X X X x X x X X X X x X x X X X X X x Notation: X x 8 recommended storage time maximum recommended storage time 7 x x x x x x X X x x x X X X X x X x X X X x x x x x x x X x x x x x x X x x X x x X x X x X x X x X x X x x X X X x x x x X X x X X x Method of packaging cling film, airtight dish covered dish covered dish covered dish covered cling film, cellophane, greaseproof paper cling film, airtight dish covered dish covered cling film, airtight dish covered cling film, airtight dish covered original packaging original packaging original packaging plastic box plastic box aluminium foil cling film cling film cling film cling film cling film cling film cling film cling film dish covered dish covered Maint enance & Cleaning Before any maintenance of cleaning work is carried out DISCONNECT the appliance from the ELECTRICITY SUPPLY. 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. NEVER use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning products or wax polishes to clean the interior as these will damage the surface and leave a strong odour. External Cleaning Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water. When the appliance is not in use Defrosting While the appliance is in operation the ice-making compartment becomes progressively covered with frost. This frost, acts as an insulator and prevents the cold from reaching the insulator food. The frost should be removed whenever the thickness of the frost exceeds 1/4. To carry out complete defrosting proceed as follows. Pull out the plug from the wall socket or turn the thermostat control knob to the '0' position. Leave the fridge and ice-making compartment doors open, when defrosting is completed, dry the appliance thoroughly. Remove any defrost water collected in the tray. Replace the plug in the socket or return the thermostat to the initial position and, after letting the appliance run for at least an hour, place the food in the refrigerator. When the appliance is not in use for long periods, disconnect from the electricity supply, empty all foods and clean the appliance, leaving the door open to prevent unpleasant smells. 9 Some thing N o t Wor king If the appliance is not working correctly, please carry out the following checks before contacting Expert Appliance Care.
