IMPORTANT
First make sure that the appliance has not been damaged in transit. If any damage
has been incurred, please inform the supplier immediately.
Please read these instructions carefully.
Keep the instructions in a safe place and make sure that they are retained with the
refrigerator when the appliance is transferred to a new location or owner.
Note! If this refrigerator is replacing a larger one which is going to be scrapped,
remove the door before disposal to prevent children from becoming trapped inside.
Please contact the relevant area refuse office to arrange disposal. The pipe system
of your refrigerator must not be damaged if technically correct disposal is to be
guaranteed.
If possible, please take the packaging of your new refrigerator to the recycling centre
for your area.
Recommendation: before installation or initial use of the appliance, clean the interior
and fittings with lukewarm water and, if necessary, a mild detergent. Never use
acidic, abrasive or strongsmelling detergents or wax polishes!
Connecting to the mains
The refrigerator must only be connected to the electricity supply using an earthed
socket outlet, installed in accordance with local regulations. Before connecting the
refrigerator, check from the data label inside the cabinet that the voltage agrees with
your mains supply.
Plug connection (for United Kingdom only)
If a 3-pin 13 amp fused plug is used, it should be fitted with a 3 amp fuse; with other
plug types, the circuit should contain a 5 amp fuse.
Warning - This Appliance must be earthed.
MOULDED-ON PLUG WITH FUSE (for United Kingdom only)
The mains lead is fitted with a nonrewirable moulded-on 13 amp plug containing a 3
amp fuse. If the fuse requires replacing at any time, the fuse cover/carrier should be
removed using a small screwdriver to lever it out. The old fuse should be replaced
by a 3 amp ASTA approved BS1362 fuse and the fuse cover/carrier must be refitted
before the plug is used again.
If the fuse cover/carrier is lost, a replacement can be obtained from our service
shops. The fuse cover/carrier must be of the same colour as that of the coloured
insert in the base of the plug. In no circumstances must the plug be used without a
correct fuse cover/carrier fitted.
If the plug supplied on the mains lead is not suitable for the socket in your home, it
should be cut off and disposed of safely, or destroyed, to avoid any possible shock
hazard resulting from the plug being inserted into a 13 amp socket elsewhere in the
house. A suitable replacement plug should then be fitted as given below.

IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains
following code:
GREEN-AND-YELLOW
BLUE
BROWN
lead of this appliance are coloured in accordance with the
: EARTH
: NEUTRAL
: LIVE
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead
may not correspond with the coloured markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed
as follows.
Connect the GREEN-AND-YELLOW coloured
wire to the plug terminal marked letter E or
earth symbol
or coloured green or greenand-yellow.
Connected the BROWN coloured wire to the
plug terminal marked letter L or coloured red.
Connected the BLUE coloured wire to the plug terminal marked letter N or coloured
black.
SWITCHING ON
Inside the refrigerator you will find a plastic bag containing 4 small wheels. Carefully
place the refrigerator on its back and insert the pins of the wheels into the metal
holders located on the underside of the refrigerator. In this way you can always move
your refrigerator to where it is needed.
To switch on the refrigerator, plug it into the socket and turn the thermostat (in the
inside compartment) to position 3 or 4. The appliance start to cool in about one hour.
The temperature inside the refrigerator is affected by location, room temperature and
too frequent opening of the door. Adjustment of the thermostat dial may therefore be
necessary.
TEMPERATURE CONTROL
The cooling capacity can be adjusted with the thermostat. 0=cooling is switched off,
from 1-7 the temperature decreases. When the thermostat is at a medium setting (3
or 4) and the ambient temperature is normal, the temperature inside the refrigerator
is between 0º-7ºC.
Note! Depending on the ambient temperature, service life, and quantity and
temperature of the refrigerated items, the temperature inside the refrigerator can
drop to below 0ºC when the thermostat is set at 7 (maximum cooling capacity).
Drinks can freeze, glass bottles and can may burst!
If the ambient temperature is very high, the cooling capacity decreases. This does
not mean than the appliance is defective.
USING THE REFRIGERATOR
The refrigerator provides sufficient storage space for food, milk, drinks etc. The
shelves on the inside of the door are suitable for bottles, tins and small packets. The
un-refrigerated space above the cooling compartment can be used for storing
glasses and snacks.
4
All food should be stored in its original packaging or in closed containers. Liquids
should also only be stored in closed bottles or containers. In this way food remains
moist, odours do not form and neither does excess ice form on the cooling unit. Allow
hot food and drink to cool down before placing them in the refrigerator.
The temperature in the freezer section of the unit is set at - 12ºC. Frozen products
can be stored here for short periods (please follow the instructions on the packet
very carefully!)
Do not keep any easily combustible substances such as ether, petrol,
adhesive, propane gas etc. in the refrigerator, it could explode!
ICE CUBES
Fill the ice-cube container to 4/5 with potable water. Place the ice-cube container in
the freezer section. 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 7 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. Remove the lid
with the ice cubes from the ice tray and the ice cubes can now be taken out easily.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Defrosting
Frost will gradually form on the cooling surfaces and it must not be allowed to
become too thick since it impairs the cooling efficiency of the refrigerator.
A552 model
To defrost turn the thermostat dial to 0 remove the ice tray and leave the cabinet and
frozen food storage compartment door open.
The frost will melt and run into the drip collector which should be located underneath
the frozen food storage compartment.
When defrosting is complete, remove the drip collector and turn the thermostat dial
to its normal setting.
Rinse out the ice tray, refill it with fresh water and place it on its shelf. Some drips of
water may come from the cooling fins during normal operation.
A300 model
Defrosting of the frost built up on the evaporator should be started with pushing in
the push button in the middle of the thermostat knob. It should be pushed until a
clickingish heardt. (The button remains in the pushed-in-position). Defrosting has
started. The defrost water is automatically evaporated by the heat generated by the
appliance. After defrosting is completed, cooling will automatically be started again.
(Push button returns to the original position.)
Defrosting should be repeated at least once a week.
Defrost water
During the defrosting process the water runs through a hose into a container on the
back of the refrigerator where it evaporates. This container does not need to be emptied.
Cleaning
Clean the inside of your refrigerator regularly to keep it fresh and hygienic. Switch off
the appliance and pull out the plug. Clean the interior and fittings carefully with a mild
detergent in lukewarm water.
5
Never use acidic, abrasive or strongsmelling detergents or wax polishes as these will
damage the surfaces and leave an unpleasant smell.
The wooden housing should be dusted from time-to-time or wiped down with a damp
cloth. The door seal should only be cleaned with water and rubbed down with talcum
powder from time to time.
If possible, the unit should also be dusted occasionally with a brush or, even better,
with a vacuum cleaner. Ensure that the plug is disconnected.
Longer periods of absence …
If you wish to switch off the appliance for a longer period of time, pull out the plug,
defrost the refrigerator and clean it carefully. Leave the door open to prevent
unpleasant odours from forming.
TROUBLE-SHOOTING
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, eg. 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 and product
number. (Details of the model and product number 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.
INPORTANT ADVICE
Do
- make sure that drinks and food, particularly those with a strong smell, are closed
tightly or well packed;
- close the door properly after use. The door should only be left open a little when
the refrigerator is switched off;
Do not
- use sharp objects to remove the frost layer or free the ice tray,
- obstruct the airflow on or above the cooling unit,
- put any hot or warm food/drinks into the refrigerator - allow them to cool down first
Sodium chromate is used for corrosion protection (less than 2 weight % of the
coolant).
