3. Cleaning
Clean the refrigerator thoroughly at intervals, as
necessary. Remove the shelves; these, the
cabinet interior and the door should be washed with a
warm solution of sodium bi-carbonate. Finally wipe
over with a cloth rinsed in warm water only, and dry
with a clean cloth. Do not wash any plastic parts in
water that is more than hand warm, and do not expose
them to dry heat. The outside of the cabinet should be
wiped down regularly with a clean, damp cloth.
NEVER USE STRONG CHEMICALS OR ABRASIVE
CLEANING MATERIALS ON ANY PART OF THE
CABINET.
7. Ventilation grills, if used, must have an free
openings of at least 200cm² each
4. Positioning the appliance
When first using this refrigerator please consider the
following points:
ENSURE REFRIGERATOR IS LEVEL
THE PIPEWORK AT THE BACK GETS HOT IN USE
THE REFRIGERATOR HAS NO 'MOTOR' AND IS
THEREFORE VIRTUALLY SILENT
ALLOW AT LEAST 3 HRS. FOR SIGNS OF
COOLING
During the refrigeration process, the appliance
gives off heat from the condenser (under the
upper part of the rear cover) into the surrounding air.
The more ventilated the condenser is, the more
effective the refrigeration will be.
The other condition for satisfactory operation is that
the appliance stands on a flat surface. This is best
seen by placing a glass of water on top of the
appliance.
It is important that the appliance is not directly
exposed to radiated heat (sunlight, radiator, near an
oven, etc.).
Figure 2.
4.1. Installation instructions
The refrigerator is equipped with an electrically heated
absorption cooling unit which is virtually silent in
operation. The fridge is designed for free-standing
installation, but can be built-in if the following
conditions are complied with to ensure satisfactory
operation and maximum cooling efficiency.
IMPORTANT
Please follow the installation details below
carefully Guarantee is valid for products installed
as described only.
1. The refrigerator must be level both directions
2. There should be 20mm clearance to the wall
3. Ventilation must be provided as shown in
alternatives A, B, C or D (fig 2-3)
4. The ventilation duct must at least measure
105mm x the width of the refrigerator
5. Only the entire cooling unit must project into
the duct as shown
6. Air passing through the duct must not be
preheated by any source of heat
Figure 3.
Figure 4.
The refrigerator can be fixed to the bottom of the
furniture through its fixing feet using screws of an
appropiate length. (Fig. 4)
During installation, please ensure the mains
plug is accessible at all times.

5. Using the appliance
To start the refrigerator connect the plug to the socket
outlet and switch on the socket. The cooling fins should
show signs of cooling after about 3 hours.
The refrigerator needs about 6 hours at normal
ambient temperature to reach 6 °C in the storage
compartment.
5.1. Temperature regulation
The usual setting required is in the region of 2 to 3 on
the thermostat knob (Fig. 4), but this can vary with
conditions of load and installation. If it is found
necessary to alter the setting,the knob can be turned
to a higher number to produce a colder temperature,
or a lower number to produce a warmer temperature.
The effect of any adjustment can be checked by
means of the thermometer after leaving the
refrigerator operating for a further period to settle
down again.
This frost-formation is kept back by the FUZZY
LOGIC system built into the appliance by switching
off the unit for two hours in every 24 hours. The
frost will melt and the defrost water will run through
the drain tube from the drip channel into an
evaporating vessel located at the bottom rear of the
refrigerator. (Fig 5) The defrost water will evaporate
automatically into the circulating air and the vessel
will not need emptying manually.
If we want to switch off the unit, turn the thermostat
knob to "0", disconnect the refrigerator from the
electricity supply and leave the cabinet door open.
After defrosting the cabinet interior should be
wiped out with a clean, damp cloth.
Figure 5.
9. Changing the lightbulb (If available)
Figure 4.
6. ICE CUBES
Fill the ice tray to 4/5 with drinking water, and place
the ice tray on the ice-tray shelf. Wipe off any excess
water to prevent the ice tray from freezing to the
surface.
To speed up the making of ice cubes, turn the
thermostat to position 5 for a short while. Remember
to turn the dial to its normal setting when the ice cubes
are frozen.
To remove the cubes from the ice tray, hold it under
running water. The ice cubes can now be taken out
easily.
7. Useful suggestion
Do not overfill the appliance. It is advisable to
leave some space between the products in the
cabinet to ensure efficient and even cooling. If the
shelves are packed too tightly there may be
unacceptable temperature variations.
If the lightbulb needs changing, pull out the plug
and proceed as follows:
Press the metal reflector to one side and draw the
lamp covering backwards. Replace the bulb and
push the covering back into place.
A new 10-watt bulb can be obtained at any service
shop.
10. Reversing the door hang (Fig. 6-7)
Lay the appliance on its back. Remove the 8
screws (1). Remove the door, together with the two
hinges (2), from the housing.
Remove the two cover caps (3) from the housing
and place them in the open hinge holes in the
housing. Place the bottom righthand hinge in the
top left of the door and the top righthand hinge in
the bottom left of the door and hang the door on its
hinges in the open cover cap holes in the housing.
Secure the hinges and cover caps with the 8
screws.
Check that the door closes easily and is sealed
properly.
8. Defrosting, cleaning and
maintenance
Frost will gradually form on the cooling surfaces and it
must not be allowed to become too thick since it acts
as an insulator and interferes with the cooling.
6
Figure 6.
Place the door on the lower hinge (9), slot the
upper hinge into the opening, press together with
the door against the housing and secure with the
two screws (11).
12. Customer service
Figure 7.
11. Replacing the decorative
door panel (Fig. 8-10)
Remove the two screws (1) from the upper hinge of
the door.
Pull the door together with the hinge away from the
housing and up off the lower hinge bolt (2-3).
Remove screws (4) and pull off the frame edge (5).
Slide the decorative panel (6) out of the door frame
and insert the new panel (7), so that the upper edge
of the panel runs exactly parallel to the upper edge of
the frame. A new panel can be inserted more easily
into the upper edge of the frame when the two corners
are cut off by approx. 5 x 5mm (8). Put the frame edge
(5) back in place and secure with screws.
Before you call a service engineer, carry out the
following simple tests:
Is there a power failure? Check the fuses.
Is the plug firmly connected to the socket and is
the socket switched on? Check the socket by
plugging in another appliance, e.g. a table lamp.
Is the thermostat at the correct setting?
(normally 3 or 4).
Has the door not been closed properly causing
the inside temperature to rise too quickly?
Is the refrigerator level?
Has the ventilation become obstructed?
If after checking all the above points, the
refrigerator is still not working satisfactorily, contact
your nearest service engineer. State the problem,
model, product- and serial-number.
(Details of the model, product- and serialnumber
are to be found on the data label in the top left of
the inside compartment.)
This refrigerator is equipped with overheating
protection. An authorised service technician can
check whether this has been triggered or not.
In the event of a fault developing, contact your
nearest Service Centre-see local telephone
directory.
