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.
F To Start the Appliance
1. Allow the appliance to stand for 2 hrs after
installation.
2. Plug in the appliance and switch on at the mains
supply.
3. Turn the thermostat control knob to the required
setting. A setting of 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.
Controlling the temperature, setting
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.
Turning the control button towards the bigger numbers
cooling becomes more and more intensive.
In the ice-making compartment can be reached -2 °C
or lower temperature if the knob of the thermostatic
control is set according to following table:
Ambient temperature
Thermostat setting
from 10 °C to 16 °C
from 16 °C to 25 °C
from 25 °C to 32 °C
from 32 °C to 38 °C
„1”
„1-2”
„2-3”
„3-4”
In this case the temperature starting automatically in
the fresh food compartment is about +5 °C or below.
The setting 5., 6. and 7. are suitable for quick chill of
big quantity goods.
The temperature coming about in the refrigerator is
effected by not only the position of the thermostatic
control but the ambient temperature, frequency of
door openings and the quantity of food put into it
newly etc.
In the maximum i.e. „7” position - in case of
increased demand e.g. during heatwaves without disconnecting continuous operation can
occur. This does not cause damages to the appliance.

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.
7
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 ice-making
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.

Main t 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
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.
10
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.
