Power failure – food safety
Do not refreeze frozen foods that have thawed completely. The food may be
dangerous to eat. Follow the recommendations below if you discover food in your
freezer has thawed:
–Ice crystals still visible – food may be refrozen but should be stored for a shorter
period than recommended.
–Thawed but refrigerator cold – refreezing generally not recommended. Fruits
and some cooked food can be refrozen but use as soon as possible. Meat, fish,
poultry – use immediately or cook then refreeze. Vegetables – discard as they
usually go limp and soggy.
–Thawed and warmer than 41°F (5°C) – discard all food.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Please follow the installation steps below to ensure your appliance operates correctly.

●●
It is imperative the pressure reducing valve (PRV) is fitted prior to the filter. If the PRV
is not fitted to the connection line, the Ice & Water features may not function in some
circumstances.
The water connection to your Ice & Water refrigerator must be installed by an
authorized plumber or Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician.
The water connection instructions below are intended only for the professional installer.
The new tubings supplied with the refrigerator are to be used, old tubings from old
water and ice connections should not be used.
1/4” copper tubing can be connected to the appliance. An adapter that connects the
copper water line from 1/4” compression fitting to a suitable quick connect fitting
is required for proper installation of the water line to the installation components
supplied. Failure to use a suitable adapter will result in leaks and/or property damage.
Replacement parts are available through Customer Care or online at
www.fisherpaykel.com (this service is available to selected markets only).
INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS/WARNING

●●
DO NOT use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without
adequate disinfection before or after the system.
WARNING — connect to potable water supply only.
DO NOT install on line pressure above 119psi (827kPa) or below 22psi (150kPa).
DO NOT use on hot water supply 100°F (38°C) max.
DO NOT cut any length of tube shorter than 8” (200mm).
DO NOT install near electrical wires or water pipes that will be in the path of drilling
when selecting the location of filter system.
DO NOT mount filter in such a position so that it will be struck by other items, such as
wastebaskets, etc.
DO NOT install the filter or any water tubing in direct sunlight as prolonged exposure
to light can weaken plastic components.
DO NOT install in a location that is susceptible to freezing temperatures as damage to
the housing could occur.
DO NOT screw filter to the refrigerator.
DO NOT install the filter or any water tubing in high temperature areas eg in a ceiling cavity.
DO NOT connect copper fittings directly to the fittings of this refrigerator. If
connecting copper tubing to this refrigerator an appropriate adaptor must be used.
DO NOT continuously dispense water for longer than 2 minutes.

for a water connection. Tee and tap fitting is
not supplied.
Connect the 8” (200mm) tubing to the outlet of
the PRV (blue collet) and the inlet connection
of the water filter cartridge as shown in
Diagram 1. Gently pull on both ends to ensure it
is locked.
Connect the 1/4” (6mm) tubing to the outlet of
the water filter cartridge as shown in Diagram 2.
Gently pull to ensure it is locked.
Measure the required length of tubing to run
from the PRV to the water connection point (no
less than 10” (250mm)).
Cut the tubing making sure the ends are square
and clean.
Connect the tubing to the faucet connection
and the base of the PRV (white collet) and then
to the faucet as shown in Diagram 3. Please
note that the faucet connection supplied should
fit most installation situations.
Connect one locking key to each side of the
water filter cartridge in between the cartridge
and the locking collet as shown in Diagram 4.
To flush the water filter of any trapped air,
harmless carbon fines and to also check for
leaks, aim the end of the tubing into a bucket,
turn isolating faucet on and run at least
4qt (4L) of water through. Once complete, turn
isolating faucet off.
Locate desired position for water filter noting
carefully the following points:
●●
It is recommended to fit the water filter in a
vertical orientation with the water filter head
at the top. This will minimize water leakage
when replacing cartridge.
●●
Ensure the filter is in a convenient location to
access every 6 months for replacement. We
suggest that this location is beside the water
filter supply faucet in a cupboard beside the
refrigerator.
●●
A minimum clearance of 2 1/2” (64mm) from
the bottom of the filter cartridge is required
to perform cartridge removal.
●●
Do not screw water filter to refrigerator.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
!1 Attach adhesive foam pad to the back
of the water filter head as shown in
Diagram 5. Write the date to be replaced
on the filter (date installed + 6 months).
Remove the double sided foam backing
and attach the filter to the desired
position, reinforcing the filter with the
screws provided as located in step 10
(refer to the previous page).
Run the 1/4” (6mm) tubing to the back of
the refrigerator ensuring there is enough
tubing to pull the refrigerator out for
service.
Using the measurement guide shown in
Diagram 6, mark out 5/8” (16mm), on the
end of the tubing as shown in Diagram 7.
Insert the tubing marked 5/8” (16mm)
into the water (solenoid) valve up to the
marked line as shown in Diagram 8.
Pull gently on tubing to ensure it is locked
in as shown in Diagram 9.
The completed installation should look like
Diagram 11 on page 16.
Turn the isolating faucet on and check that
all connections are dry and free of drips.
Coil water line tubing behind the
refrigerator. Push your refrigerator into
place being careful not to kink or squash
the water line tube running into the water
(solenoid) valve.
Read pages 16 – 17 carefully and then turn
refrigerator on.

All connections must be checked for leaks.
Ensure 1/4” (6mm) tubing is routed away from sharp objects, sharp corners (beware
of kinking the tube as this will stop water flow), clear of the refrigerator rear
compartment and not in a location where it can be kinked or squashed.
Ensure all push-fit connections are firmly pushed into place. The tube should push in
5/8” (16mm) before reaching the stop.
If tubing is removed at any point, re-cut the end and re-insert. Tubing must be fully
inserted to avoid leaks.
To remove tube from connection points first turn off the isolating faucet. Gently push
the dispensing pad a few times using a glass or container to remove the static line
pressure. Push in the collet firmly while pulling back on the tubing at the same time,
as shown in Diagram 10.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
7. Installation (all models)
Your Fisher & Paykel ActiveSmart™ refrigerator
is fitted with front and rear rollers, designed
for moving the product in the forwards and
backwards direction.
Avoid moving the product in a sideways direction
as this may damage the rollers or the floor
covering/surface.
A Your refrigerator will arrive with the front feet
wound up making moving the product into its
final location a simple task.
Raise the front of
the refrigerator
Lower the front
of the refrigerator
Refrigerator feet
B Roll the refrigerator into its final position making
sure there is the correct air gap between the
product and surrounding cabinetry. See minimum
clearance in cabinetry dimensions table.
C Adjust the front feet down until the refrigerator
is leaning backward with the front approximately
1/2” (10mm) higher than the back. This will ensure a
good door closing action.
(Non French door models only)
D Aligning your refrigerator with cabinetry.
●●
●●
●●
Align the sides of the refrigerator with the
cabinetry by adjusting the hinge side front foot.
Adjust the handle side foot until it touches the
floor and takes a small amount of weight.
Once the refrigerator is in place and aligned with
cupboards/alcove gently push on the front top
and check if the product is rocking or stable.
Uneven door alignment
8. Levelling of refrigerator doors
(French door models only)
●●
●●
●●
For uneven surfaces, front feet can be used to align
the 2 doors.
If left hand door is too low, then unscrew the left
hand foot to lift up the cabinet until the two doors
top edges are aligned.
If right hand door is too low, then adjust the right
hand foot in the same way.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
9. What to do if your product is unstable
A Gently push the refrigerator back until the rear
rollers contact the floor.
●●
Measure the gap under the front foot, which has
come off the floor.
●●
Obtain some solid packing material (hardwood,
plastic, etc) which fits firmly into the gap under
the foot.
Example only
Note: do not use metallic materials that may
corrode, stain and/or damage floor coverings.
B Wind both front feet up and roll the product out
of position.
●●
Place the packing material in the location
diagonally opposite the front roller that lifts off
the floor.
●●
Make sure the packing material stays in place
when the product is pushed back into position.
●●
Ideally, the packing material is large enough to
rest against the back wall so as to prevent it
from moving when the cabinet is pushed into
position.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before placing food in the fresh food or freezer compartments
●●
●●
●●
●●
Remove all internal packaging. Ensure that all transit clips are removed from the
refrigerator. These are small rubber stoppers located at the back of the shelves.
Clean the inside of the appliance with a mix of warm water and a small amount of liquid
detergent, and a soft cloth to remove manufacturing and transportation dust.
Allow the refrigerator and freezer to run empty for 2 – 3 hours to allow each
compartment to cool to the appropriate temperature.
The appliance may have an odor on its initial operation, but this will go when the
refrigerator and freezer have cooled sufficiently.

For the most energy efficient use of your appliance:
Ensure your refrigerator has adequate ventilation.
Do not cover your appliance with any material that will prevent air from flowing around
the cabinet sides.
Ensure you vacuum around the appliance to remove dust and possible pet hair
accumulation. Also keep the appliance and it’s cabinetry free of dust by wiping down
with a dry, lint-free cloth (refer to section ‘Cleaning and caring for your refrigerator’,
‘Cabinet surround’).
Allow good clearances in front of air ducts within the cabinet for maximum cold air
distribution.
Cool hot foods down before placing them in the appliance.
Do not overfill the compartments.
Keep door openings to a minimum.
Select a temperature setting that isn’t too cold.
Check your door seals for leaks.
MOVING OR STORING YOUR APPLIANCE
If your refrigerator is turned off for any reason, wait 10 minutes before turning it back
on. This will allow the refrigeration system pressures to equalize before restarting.
Moving your refrigerator
●●
●●
●●
●●
Turn off the appliance and unplug from the power point. Remove all food.
Turn the adjustable feet to the right as far as they will turn.
Ease the refrigerator out of its position. Tuck the power cord away, tape the shelves in
place and tape the doors closed. If the cabinet needs to be placed at an angle or laid
down, carefully lay it on its side (the right hand side when viewed from the front).
Relocate and install. If the appliance has been left on its side for any length of time,
leave it standing upright as long as you can (a few hours) before turning on.
Storing your refrigerator
●●
●●
When storing your cleaned appliance, leave the doors open. This allows air to circulate
and prevents the build up of bacteria and moulds.
Before using again, clean well using a mixture of warm water and a small amount of
liquid dishwashing detergent. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft lint-free cloth.
Holiday time
We recommend you leave your refrigerator operating while you are on holiday.

●●
●●
●●
To avoid serious illness or death, do not use the water filter where water is unsafe or
of unknown quality.
The water filter cartridge needs to be changed when the filter indicator icon flashes
on the interface panel.
We recommend the water filter cartridge is replaced when the internal and external
icons illuminate. This will happen every 6 months.
If the water filtration system has been allowed to freeze, replace filter cartridge.
The rate of water flow through the water dispenser can slow down as the filter
cartridge accumulates any sediments which may be present in the water supplied to
your home. This varies depending upon your local water quality, which may require
your filter cartridge to be changed more frequently.
In cases of excessively reduced filter life we recommend that you consult a local
plumber or your water supplier for advice on suitable filtration requirements for the
water supplied to your home.
Filter replacement is the consumer’s responsibility and will not be covered by the
warranty except in the case of faulty parts or materials within the filter cartridge.
If the water has not been dispensed for some time or water has an unpleasant taste or
odor, flush system by dispensing 4qt (4L) of water.
If unpleasant taste or odor persists, you may wish to fit a new filter cartridge.

USING YOUR ICE MAKER
(ICE & WATER AND AUTOMATIC ICE MODELS ONLY)
Ice On/Off
Your ice maker is designed to automatically dispense ice
until it senses that the bin is full. So the more ice you use,
the more it makes. It is even clever enough to sense when
there is no bin in place to catch the ice and it will not
dispense any ice.
First use
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
When you first turn your refrigerator on after installation,
the ice maker will be off. The light above the ‘Ice On/Off’
icon will be off.
To turn your ice maker on press the
button. The light
above the ‘Ice On/Off’ icon will be illuminated when the
ice maker is on.
Press and hold ,
and
together for 4 seconds then
close the door(s). The ice tray will flip. Force another
cycle. The ice tray will flip and spill the water into the ice
bin. Empty water and replace bin.
If the bin is full of ice, inserted incorrectly or if all bins are
removed, the ice maker will not operate. When the bin
is inserted correctly the scoop will be on the right hand
side of the bin for RF135B, RF170B, RF170W, RF170A and
RF201A models.
Once your ice maker is in operation, discard the first
3 harvests of ice (8 ice cubes are produced per harvest).
This will flush away any impurities in the water line and
ensure that you get the best quality ice. We recommend
that you also do this after vacations or extended periods
of not using ice.
We recommend that you turn the ice maker off if:
–The water supply is to be off for several hours, or
–The ice storage bin is to be removed for a period of
time, or
– You are going on holiday/vacation.

Information about your ice maker
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
Your automatic ice maker will produce approximately eight cubes of ice every
3 – 4 hours, depending on the freezer compartment temperature and the number of
door openings.
When the ‘Ice Boost’ function is activated, ice production will increase up to 30% from
standard ice making.
The ice cube tray will fill with water.
When cubes are frozen, they will be ejected from the ice tray into the ice storage bin.
Ice making will continue until the storage bin is full.
Ice making will resume once you start to use the stored ice.
Your Ice & Water product comes with a smaller ice bin inside the larger freezer bin.
Attached to the ice storage bin is the hygienic scoop for the ice. This scoop provides
hygienic access to the ice.
If a large amount of ice is required, remove an ice storage bin and allow ice to fall into
the larger bin.
For maximum ice storage, level the stored cubes with the ice scoop.
If ice is not used often, old cubes will become cloudy, taste stale, will shrink and may
stick together. Empty the ice storage bin periodically and wash in lukewarm water. Dry
thoroughly and place back into the correct position.
IMPORTANT!
●●
●●
●●
●●
Avoid contact with the moving parts of the ice maker ejector mechanism, and do not
place your fingers on the automatic ice making mechanism while the refrigerator is
in operation.
Do not use ice cubes that may have become discolored, usually with a green-blue
color. If such discoloration is noted, discard the ice cubes and contact your
Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician.
Ensure the ice maker is connected to the filter and to a drinkable water supply only.
Installation of the water connection to the ice maker must be completed by a
Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician or a qualified plumber.

ACTIVESMART™ SPECIAL FEATURES
Fruit and vegetable bins and humidity control lid
●●
●●
The fruit and vegetable bins feature a unique lid which provides two functions:
The humidity lid seals the bins and provides a humid microclimate to extend storage
times of fruit and vegetables.
The humidity lid prevents condensation, which forms at high humidities, from dripping
down onto the fruit and vegetables by retaining it in the grooves of the lid.
Fruit and vegetable bins and humidity slide (selected models only)
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
Each fruit and vegetable bin has a humidity slide control that can be adjusted to a fruit
or vegetable setting depending on what is stored in the bins.
If possible try to store fruit and vegetables separately. This will help extend their
storage life.
If there is a mixture of fruit and vegetables in the bin adjust the position of the control
to the center.
If there is too much water in the bins (due to the high humidity in the bins), the control
can be adjusted towards the setting with fewer drips (fruit setting) and/or the water
can be wiped out as required.
Remember a minimum amount of water in the bins is beneficial for fruit and vegetable
storage.

CLEANING AND CARING FOR YOUR REFRIGERATOR
Interior (all models)
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
It is important to keep the interior of the refrigerator and freezer clean to help prevent
food from becoming contaminated during storage.
The amount and types of food stored determines how often cleaning should be carried
out in the refrigerator (ideally once every 1 to 2 weeks).
Remove the shelves from cabinet and door. Wash shelves and storage bins in warm
water and detergent; rinse in clean water and dry before replacing.
Wipe over the interior surfaces with warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent.
Alternatively you can use 1tsp baking soda dissolved in 1/2qt (500ml) of warm water.
Rinse with clean water.
To help remove “old stale refrigerator” smells add a few drops of vanilla essence or
vinegar to the water before cleaning.
Clean interior surfaces with warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent. Use a
toothbrush for the magnetic door gasket.
Do not use harsh, abrasive cloths on any part of the refrigerator or freezer.
Glass shelves (all models)
Clean with warm water and detergent or a glass cleaner.
Bottle holder (where fitted)
Clean with warm water and detergent. The use of abrasive cleaners and solvents may
cause damage.
Automatic ice dispenser (Ice & Water and Automatic Ice models only)
●●
●●
●●
●●
We do not recommend you clean the ice maker componentry, but it is important to
clean the bins occasionally.
The storage bin should be cleaned regularly and the old ice in the bottom of the bin
discarded.
Wash bin in lukewarm water. Dry thoroughly and replace.
When replacing the bin ensure that the scoop is on the right hand side or at the front of
the bin (model dependent).
IMPORTANT!
Many commercially available cleaning products contain solvents that may attack
the plastic components of your refrigerator and cause them to crack. It is important
to use only warm water and a small amount of liquid dishwashing detergent on any
components inside and outside your refrigerator. Avoid using anti-bacterial cleaning
products on either the interior or exterior of the cabinet as they may cause rusting of
metal components and cracking of plastic components.

runners. Push the tray/bin back slowly until you feel it clip back onto the runners.
IMPORTANT!
●●
●●
Ensure that trays and bins are securely clipped onto the runners before use.
Bin and tray runners are pre-lubricated, and will not need to be re-lubricated during
their life. Do not attempt to clean grease from the runners, as this will affect their
ability to function. Do not immerse runners in water.
Permanently fixed bins and trays (Freezer drawer models only)
The freezer bins and trays in this model are permanently fixed. They cannot be removed
from the freezer compartment. To clean simply wipe with a soft, damp cloth.

STORING FOOD IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR
Your refrigerator helps to extend the storage times of fresh perishable foods. The cold
temperature slows down the major causes of food spoilage — namely, the growth of
bacteria, moulds and yeasts, and any chemical and physical reactions.
Fresh food care
The quality of food before it is placed in the refrigerator is critical to successful storage.
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
For best results:
Select foods that are very fresh and of high quality.
Buy only the amount that you will use within the recommended storage time. If you buy
extra, plan to freeze it.
Ensure that food is well wrapped or covered before it is stored. This will prevent food
from dehydrating, deteriorating in color or losing flavor and will help maintain freshness.
It will also prevent odor transfer. Fruit and vegetables need not be wrapped provided
they are stored in the vegetable bins of the refrigerator.
Make sure that strong smelling foods are wrapped or covered and stored away from
foods such as butter, milk and cream which can be easily tainted by strong odors.
Refrigerate fresh, perishable foods as soon as possible after purchase. If left at room
temperature for any length of time the rate of deterioration will be accelerated.
Avoid placing food directly in front of air outlets, as it may freeze and cold air needs to
circulate to maintain safe food storage.
Do not open the refrigerator door unnecessarily.
Cool hot foods down before placing them in the refrigerator. This should be done
quickly. It can be aided by placing the container of food in a bowl of ice and water;
renew the ice as necessary. (Note also that hot containers may damage shelves and
walls of the refrigerator).
Store raw and cooked food in separate containers or packaging to prevent cross
contamination.
In addition:
Keep the refrigerator clean. Wipe the inside walls and shelves frequently (refer to
section ‘Cleaning and caring for your refrigerator’) and place only clean containers in
the refrigerator.
Keep a close check on the quality of food in your refrigerator. Discard any food that
shows signs of spoilage. Pay particular attention to meat, fish and poultry, as these
foods are highly perishable. Use food within the recommended storage times.
Dairy foods and eggs
●●
●●
●●
Most pre-packed dairy foods have a recommended ‘use by/best before/best by’ date
stamped on them. Store them in the refrigerator and use within the recommended time.
Butter can become easily tainted by strong smelling foods so it is best stored in a
sealed container.
Eggs should be stored in the refrigerator. For best results, especially when baking,
remove the eggs from the refrigerator two hours before they are to be used.
41
STORING FOOD IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR
Red meat
●●
●●
●●
Place fresh red meat on a plate and loosely cover with waxed paper, plastic wrap or foil.
Store cooked and raw meat on separate plates. This will prevent any juices lost from the
raw meat contaminating the cooked product.
Delicatessen meats should be used within the recommended storage time.
Poultry
●●
●●
●●
Fresh whole birds should be rinsed inside and out with cold running water. Dry and
place on a plate. Cover loosely with plastic wrap or foil.
Poultry pieces should also be stored this way. Whole poultry should never be stuffed
until just before cooking, otherwise food poisoning may result.
Cool and refrigerate cooked poultry quickly. Remove stuffing from poultry and store
separately.
Fish and seafood
●●
●●
●●
Whole fish and fillets should be used on the day of purchase. Until required, refrigerate
on a plate loosely covered with plastic wrap, waxed paper or foil.
If storing overnight or longer, take particular care to select very fresh fish. Whole fish
should be rinsed in cold water to remove loose scales and dirt and then patted dry with
paper towels. Place whole fish or fillets in a sealed plastic bag.
Keep shellfish chilled at all times. Use within 1 – 2 days.
Precooked foods and leftovers
●●
●●
●●
These should be stored in suitable covered containers so that the food will not dry out.
Keep for only 1 – 2 days.
Reheat leftovers only once and until steaming hot.
Fruit and vegetable bins
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
42
Although most fruit and vegetables keep best at low temperatures, take care not to
store the following at temperatures of less than 44.6°F (7°C) for long periods: Citrus
fruit, tropical fruit, tomatoes, cucumbers.
Undesirable changes will occur at low temperatures such as softening of the flesh,
browning, accelerated decaying and/or loss of flavor.
Do not refrigerate avocados (until they are ripe), bananas, mangoes or pepinos.
If possible store fruit and vegetables separately, ie fruit in one bin and vegetables in
the other.
Each fruit and vegetable bin has a humidity control slide that can be adjusted
depending on what is stored in the bins. For more information on using the Humidity
Control refer to section ‘ActiveSmart™ special features’.
STORING FOOD IN YOUR FREEZER
The use of temperatures of -0.4°F (-18°C) or colder to store food means that the food
can be kept for longer periods than when refrigeration temperatures are used. This
is because the growth of bacteria, moulds and yeasts are stopped, and chemical and
physical reactions are severely restricted at such low temperatures.
Frozen food care
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
For best results:
Choose only high quality foods that freeze well.
Store at -0.4°F (-18°C) or colder. Take care to maintain this low storage temperature,
eg try to avoid opening the freezer door unnecessarily. If your ice cream is soft you are
running your freezer too warm.
Leave space at the top of containers, glass jars or plastic bags containing liquids or
semi-solid foods. These expand as they freeze. Usually 1 – 2” (20 – 50mm) head space is
recommended. Seal. Ideally, remove all the air from the package after food is frozen.
Packages or containers of solid foods should have the air removed from them and be
sealed tightly before freezing.
Use the ‘Fast Freeze’ function when freezing fresh food. This helps to speed up the
freezing process, giving optimum freezing results. It is recommended that the function is
activated approximately 2 hours before required.
Freeze immediately or as quickly as possible. Freeze only small quantities of food at
any one time. For best results we recommend that only 2.2lb (1kg) of food be frozen
per 6.6gal (25L) or 0.88 cubic feet of freezer storage volume at any one time. (About
6.6lb (3kg) in small freezers and 8.8lb (4kg) in larger freezers). For faster freezing in
ActiveSmart™ models, we recommend that fresh food is placed at the top of the freezer
compartment close to the air vent.
Thaw foods preferably in a refrigerator, or using a microwave oven or multifunction oven.
Keep a constant turnover of food. Use older items of food first and do not exceed
recommended storage times.
Use good quality freezer proof packaging to maintain food quality.
If food is only covered in plastic film place inside a freezer-proof plastic bag.
Recommended freezer storage times
These times should not be exceeded.

STORING FOOD IN YOUR FREEZER
Meat, poultry and game
●●
●●
●●
●●
Do not try to freeze more than 2.2lb (1kg) of meat per 25qt (25L) of freezer storage
volume at any one time. Meat must be frozen quickly in order to maintain its texture.
Do not stuff poultry before freezing.
Red meat can be cooked from frozen, or from the partly or completely thawed states.
Remember to allow extra cooking time if cooking from frozen.
Always thaw poultry completely before cooking.
Fish
●●
●●
●●
Fish is best frozen commercially. If, however, you do want to freeze fish at home, make
sure the fish is very fresh and of high quality.
Clean, scale and preferably leave whole. All fish should be wrapped in two layers of
packaging as depending on the type of fish, odors and flavors can be readily transferred
either to or from it. Seal well.
For best results, cook from either the frozen or partly thawed state.
Fruit
●●
●●
●●
Choose high quality, mature, and ready to eat fruit. Preferably select varieties
recommended for freezing.
Avoid unripe and over-ripe fruit.
The way fruit is packed depends on how it is to be used. Fruits packed in syrup are ideal
for desserts, whereas fruits packed without sugar are better used for cooking. Most
fruits can be stored for 8 – 12 months.
Vegetables
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
Most vegetables freeze well, although ‘salad’ vegetables lose their crispness. Other
vegetables, eg celery, onion and tomatoes, should only be used in cooked dishes as they
soften on freezing.
Freeze only high quality, mature, ready-to-eat vegetables.
Sort and discard any vegetables that are damaged.
It is necessary to blanch most raw vegetables prior to freezing.
Blanching involves a short cooking period during which vegetable enzymes are
destroyed. If these enzymes are not destroyed they cause undesirable physical and
chemical changes during freezer storage.
Vegetables can be blanched in boiling water, steam or microwave oven. If using boiling
water, boil vegetables for 2 – 4 minutes and cool quickly.
In general, frozen vegetables are best cooked from their frozen state.
Prepared and cooked foods
●●
44
Most cooked foods can be frozen but it is not recommended to freeze the following:
Cooked egg white, custards, cream fillings and milk puddings, gelatine or jelly-like
dishes, mayonnaise and similar salad dressings, meringue toppings. These tend to
separate on thawing.

Normal refrigerator sounds
ActiveSmart™ refrigerators, with their excellent energy ratings and cooling performance,
can produce sounds somewhat different to your old refrigerator.
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
●●
Normal operational sounds include:
Fan air flow sound. ActiveSmart™ refrigerators have fans which change speed
depending on demand. During cooling periods, such as after frequent door openings,
fans circulate the cold air in the refrigerator and freezer compartments producing some
air flow sound. This is quite normal.
Cracking or popping which may occur when the defrost function is operating.
Running water sound. This is the liquid refrigerant in the system and can be heard as a
boiling or gurgling noise.
An audible hissing sound after closing the freezer door. This is due to the pressure
difference between the warm air that has entered the cabinet and suddenly cooled, and
the outside air pressure.
Other sounds may be heard for the following reasons:
– Cabinet not level.
– Floor uneven or weak.
– Bottles or jars rattling on shelves.
If this is your first refrigerator with an ice maker, you will hear occasional sounds that
may be unfamiliar. They are normal ice making sounds and are not cause for concern.
The following sounds are normal with the operation of an ice maker:
– Motor operation (low humming).
– Running water as the ice maker and/or water tank fills.
– Water valve opening and closing (hissing sound).
– Ice being loosened from the ice moulding tray (cracking).
– Ice dropping into bin (clunking).
