de the refrigerator compartment.
Thermostat Control
The freezer and fridge thermostats control the tempe-
rature inside the freezer and refrigerator respectively.
1. The Freezer Temperature Control
The freezer temperature control, regulates the tempe-
rature within the freezer compartment. A change in the
control setting in the freezer compartment could affect
the temperature in the refrigerator compartment under
certain circumstances.
7 Maximum coldness
1 Minimum coldness
An intermediate position is usually the most suitable,
although the temperature will be affected by:
« Room temperature
« How often the door is opened
* How much food is stored
* Position of the appliance
In determining the correct temperature control setting
all these factors have to be considered and some
experimentation may be necessary.
When altering the temperature settings, allow 24 hours
for the temperature to stablise before making further
2. The Fridge Temperature Control

switch off the fast freeze function by pressing the
fast freeze button. The fast freeze function will self
cancel after 36 hours.
Using the Appliance
This appliance is designed to operate in ambient tem-
peratures (surrounding air temperature) between 10°C
(50°F) and 32°C (90°F).
If these temperatures are exceeded i.e. colder or war-
mer, the appliance may not operate correctly.
This appliance is designed for domestic
use only, specifically for storage of edible
Before Use
Remove all transit packaging.
Wash the inside of the appliance with lukewarm water
with a little bicarbonate of soda added (5mi 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.
Starting the Appliance
1. Allow the appliance to stand for 2 hours after insta-
2. Plug in the appliance and switch on at the mains
supply. Press the ON/OFF button continuously for 3
seconds. The appliance will start operating after a 4
minute delay and the internal light will switch on.
The ON/OFF button will illuminate green and the
Freezer and Fridge control knob surrounds light up.
The temperature alarm (a beeping sound) may
come on during the start up phase. If this happens
push the temperature alarm button.
3. Set the thermostat controls for the fridge and free-
zer compartments. See Control Panel section.
4. To ensure safe food storage, allow the appliance to
operate with the doors closed for at least 3 hours,
before loading with food.
Freezer Compartment
The freezer will store frozen food at -18°C or colder
allowing for long-term frozen food storage and freezing
of fresh food.
Freezing Fresh Food
The maximum quantity of food that can be frozen in
24 hours shown on the rating plate and in the tech-
nical specifications section of this instruction book.
When freezing fresh foods, press the fast freeze
button 3 hours before placing the food into the fre-
ezer compartment.
When the food is frozen, switch off the fast freeze
function. The fast freeze function will self cancel
after 36 hours.
The Temperature alarm may sound if a lot of new
food is put into the freezer, due to a rise in tempe-
rature. The alarm will switch off automatically, as
the freezer temperature drops. Push the alarm but-
ton to switch off the audible signal.
Frozen Food storage
The freezer will store frozen food at -18°C or colder
allowing for long term frozen food storage and fre-
ezing of fresh food.
Pre packed commercially frozen food should be
stored in accordance with the manufacturers ins-
tructions for a 4 star frozen food compartment and
should be put in the freezer as soon as possible
after purchase. Your freezer provides for long-term
storage which generally means up to 3 months but
the length of the time can vary and it is important to
follow the recommended times shown on packets
of commercially frozen food.
Refrigerator Compartment
This compartment is designed to store drinks and
fresh food. The inner temperature is normally uni-
form and is kept cool by cold circulating air. Try fo
avoid putting food products flush against the air
vents at the back of the fridge as this could cause
the foods to freeze.
Chill Compartment
The temperature is kept typically at 1-2 degrees
lower than the average temperature in the fridge.
Use the compartment for foods that are marked
typically for storage at 0-5°C for longer preserva-
tion. Adjusting the fridge temperature to cooler or
warmer affects the chiller temperature in the same
way. Avoid stacking large amounts of warm food on
top of already cold food, as this will raise the tem-
perature of the food previously stored in the chiller.
Do not use the chiller, as a zone for rapid cooling at
it is not designed for this.
Food Storage
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. |
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by pac-
king all foodstuffs into airtight packages before pla-
cing them in the freezer.
Always leave warm food to cool down to room tem-
perature before placing in the fridge or freezer.
Food that is to be frozen (when cool) should be pla-
ced in the fridge before being transferred to the fre-
Do not put any hot food into the freezer.
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will ensure
safer defrosting of foods and reduce the work of the
refrigeration unit.
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.
To obtain the best results from your appliance, neit-
her hot foods nor liquids, which may evaporate
should be placed in the larder compartment.
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it
straight away. The use of an insulated container is
advisable. When you arrive home place the frozen
food in the freezer immediately.
Keep the time between buying chilled food and pla-
cing 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.
Wrap the food up properly or place it in airtight con-
tainers before putting it into the fridge freezer.
* Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated
and labeled and used in date order to ensure
that food is consumed at its best.
› Remove suspect food from your fridge freezer
and clean, refer to Maintenance and Cleaning”.
* Do not put any newly introduced food for free-
zing near to already frozen food
Food and drinks, which have a strong odor,
may affect other foods and drinks if not stored
In the Event of a Power
If there is a power failure during the storage of fro-
zen foods, keep the door closed. If the temperatu-
re within your freezer should rise do not refreeze
the food without checking its condition. The follo-
wing guidelines should assist you.
Ice Cream: Once thawed should be discarded.
Fruit and Vegetables: If soft should be cooked
and used up.
Bread and Cakes: Can be refrozen without dan-
ger. |
Shellfish: Should be refrigerated and used up
Cooked Dishes: i.e. casseroles should be refrige-
rated and used up.
Large Pieces of Meat: Can be re-frozen providing
there are ice crystals remaining within them.
Small Joints: Should be cooked and then re-fro-
zen as cooked dishes.
Should be cooked and re-frozen as a fresh dish.

bottom of the appliance, by pushing downwards
and pulling outwards. (See fig 8)
. Remove the hinge cover (B) in the plinth and repo-
sition on the opposite side of the plinth.
Whilst supporting the lower door, use a 8mm nut
driver to remove the 4 hinge retaining bolts and
remove the lower hinge.
Carefully lower the door off the central hinge.
Support the upper door and remove the two secu-
ring screws from the centre hinge. Remove the
hinge, taking care that the upper door does not fall,
retain the plastic spacer washer.
Carefully remove the upper door.
Unscrew the small blanking plugs and refit on the
opposite side to cover the vacant hinge holes.
Unscrew the hinge pin in the upper and lower
hinge blades and refit on the opposite side.
. Change the door self-closing system, putting the
freezer door’s on the fridge door and viceversa.
Refit the spacer washers and the upper door onto
the upper hinge pin and refit the centre hinge in
Relocate the lower door onto the central hinge pin,
and refit the lower hinge assembly.
Refit the plinth.
After reversing the door ensure the internal light turns
off when the fridge door is closed, and the door gasket
seals correctly to the cabinet. If the gasket is not sea-
ling correctly, apply warm air to the non-sealing area
using a hair dryer set to gentle heat.
This will make the rubber more supple and allow it to
revert to its original shape and seal correctly.
