6.1.4
Temperature setting cooling compartment
B
As shown, you are able to regulate the temperature of the cooling compartment, if necessary, by turning rotary knob (B) .
Medium setting
The cooling unit’s performance is influenced by ambient temperatures.
Please select the medium setting for ambient temperatures between +15°C
TIP and +25°C. The unit operates within its optimum performance range.
Dometic refrigerators work according to the absorption principle.
Due to physical reasons, an absorption system responds slowly to changes
made on the thermostat controller, or a loss in cooling through opening the
door, or storing food. The devices fulfill the cooling performance requirements of the Climatic Class SN acc. to EN/ISO 7371 in the temperature range
of +10°C to 32°C ambient temperature.
6.2
Storing food
Switch the refrigerator on approx. 12 hours before filling it.
Always store pre-cooled foods in the refrigerator. Make sure that the food is well
cooled when it is bought and also when transporting it. Use insulated cooling bags.
When taking food out of the refrigerator only open the refrigerator door very briefly.
Foods must be packed - best of all in closed containers - and stored separately
from each other.
Allow foods that have been warmed up to cool down before storing.
Store quickly perishable foods directly next to the cooling fins.
The air around the cooling MUST be able to circulate freely without any hindrance.
Products that could emit volatile, flammable gases must not be stored in the
refrigerator.
The freezer compartment is suitable for making ice cubes and for short-term
storage of frozen food. It is not suitable as a means of freezing foods.
6.3
Making ice cubes
Ice cubes are best frozen overnight. At night, the refrigerator has less work to do and
the unit has more reserves.
1. Fill the ice
cube tray with
drinking water
2. Place the ice cube
tray in the freezer
compartment.
Only use drinking water!
11
6.4
Defrosting
As time goes by, frost builds up on the fins.
When the layer of frost is about 3mm thick, the refrigerator should be defrosted.
1. Switch off the refrigerator, as described in section “6.6 - Switching off".
2. Remove the ice cube tray and food.
3. Leave the refrigerator door open.
4. After defrosting (freezer compartment and fins free of frost), wipe the cabinet dry
with a cloth.
5. Use a cloth to mop up the water from the freezer compartment.
6. Switch the refrigerator back on again.
The layer of ice must never be removed forcibly, nor may defrosting be
accelerated using a heat source.
Note:
Water thawing in the main compartment of the refrigerator runs into an appropriate
container at the back of the refrigerator. From there, the water evaporates.
6.5
