BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE
Before Using your Fridge
‡ When using your fridge for the ¿rst time, or after
transportation, keep it in an upright position for at least 3
hours before plugging into the mains. This allows ef¿cient
operation and prevents damage to the compressor.
‡ Your fridge may have a smell when it is operated for the
¿rst time. This is normal and the smell will fade away when
your fridge starts to cool.
Information on the Frost Free technology
The Frost Free refrigerators are different from the other static
refrigerators in terms of their operational system.
In normal fridges, the humidity entering the fridge due to
opening the door and the humidity inherent in the food causes
freezing in the freezer compartment. To defrost the frost and
ice in the freezer compartment, you are periodically required to
turn off the fridge, place the food that needs to be kept frozen
in a separately cooled container and remove the ice gathered
in the freezer compartment.
The situation is completely different in no-frost fridges. Dry
and cold air is blown into the fridge and freezer compartments
homogeneously and evenly from several points via a blower
fan. Cold air dispersed homogeneously and evenly between
the shelves cools all of your food equally and uniformly, thus
preventing humidity and freezing.

You can use your appliance even if the ambient temperature is falling down
as low as -15°C. However at low ambient temperatures (as -15°C), food
in the fridge compartment may freeze. Please check ¿rst and then you
can consume food in the fridge compartment. You can change the setting
of thermostat knob to suit your needs when the ambient temperature
returns to normal.
USER INFORMATION
Warnings about Temperature Adjustments
‡ The thermostat setting should be done by taking into consideration
how often the fridge and freezer doors are opened and closed, how
much food is stored in it and the environment in which the fridge
freezer is found.
‡ In order for the fridge freezer to be completely cooled after its ¿rst
connection to the socket, it has to operated for up to 24 hours.
‡ Throughout this period of time, do not frequently open and close the
doors of your fridge freezer and do not over¿ll it.
‡ When you would like to re-operate your fridge freezer after
disconnecting its plug from the socket, wait for at least 5 minutes to
insert the plug again so that no damage is incurred by the compressor.

ARRANGING FOOD IN THE APPLIANCE
Refrigerator compartment
‡ To reduce humidity and consequent increase of frost never place
liquids in unsealed containers in the refrigerator. Frost tends to
concentrate in the coldest parts of the evaporator and in time will
require more frequent defrosting.
‡ Never place warm food in the refrigerator. Warm food should be
allowed to cool at room temperature and should be arranged to
ensure adequate air circulation in the refrigerator compartment.
‡ Nothing should touch on the back wall as it will cause frost and the
packages can stick on the back wall. Do not open the refrigerator
door too frequently.
‡ Arrange the meat and cleaned ¿sh(wrapped in packages or sheets
of plastic) which you will use in 1-2 days,in the bottom section of
the refrigerator compartment(that is above the crisper) as this is the
coldest section and will ensure the best storing conditions.
‡ You can put the fruits and vegetables into crisper without packing.
Some recommendations have been speci¿ed below for the placement
and storage of your food in the cooling compartment.
NOTE: Potatoes, onions and garlic should not be stored in the refrigerator.

ARRANGING FOOD IN THE APPLIANCE
Freezer compartment
‡ Use the deep freeze compartment of your refrigerator for storing
frozen food for a long time and producing ice.
‡ Place the food you would like to freeze initially in the upper basket of
the freezer. Please do not place food nearby the already frozen food.
You may place your food ne[t to the other frozen food after they are
frozen (for at least 24 hours).
‡ For optimum appliance performance to reach ma[imum freezing
capacity, after placing fresh food into the freezer, turn on (1) the low
ambient switch for 24 hours is genarally is suf¿cient. After 24 hours,
you can turn off (0) the low ambient switch.
‡ You should freeze your food (meat, minced meat, ¿sh, etc.) by
dividing them into portions in such a way that they can be consumed
in portions.
‡ Please do not refreeze frozen food once it is thawed. It may pose a
danger for your health.
‡ Do not place hot meals in your deep freeze before they are cold.
‡ As you buy frozen food, make sure they were frozen under appropriate
conditions and that the packaging is not torn.
‡ While storing frozen food, the storage conditions on the package
must be observed. If there are no instructions, the food has to be
consumed in the shortest possible period of time.
‡ Frozen food has to be transported before it perishes and it should be
placed in the fast freezing shelf as soon as possible. Do not use the
door shelves for freezing purposes.
‡ The storage durations of frozen food changes depending on the
environment temperature, the frequent opening and closing of the
doors, thermostat settings, food type and the length of period that
elapsed from the time the food was bought to the time it entered the
freezer. Always abide by the instructions on the package and never
e[ceed the storage duration.
Some recommendations have been speci¿ed on pages 19, 20 and 21 for
the placement and storage of your food in the deep freeze compartment.

TRANSPORTATION AND CHANGING OF
INSTALLATION POSITION
Transportation and Changing of Installation Position
‡ The original packages and foamed polystyrene (PS) can
be retained if required.
‡ During transportation, the appliance should be secured
with a wide string or a strong rope. The instructions written
on the corrugated bo[ must be followed while transporting.
‡ Before transporting or changing the installation position,
all the moving objects (ie,shelves,crisper…) should be
taken out or ¿[ed with bands in order to prevent them from
getting damaged.
Repositioning the door
‡ It is not possible to change the opening direction of your
refrigerator door, if the door handle on your refrigerator is
installed from the front surface of the door.
‡ It is possible to change the opening direction of the door
on models without any handles.
‡ If the door opening direction of your refrigerator may
be changed, you should contact the nearest Authorised
Service Agent to have the opening direction changed.
BEFORE CALLING YOUR AFTER SALES SERVICE
If your fridge freezer is not working properly, it may be a minor problem,
therefore check the following, before calling an electrician to save time
and money.
What to do if your appliance does not operate;
Check if;
‡ ‡ There is no power,
‡ ‡ The general switch in your home is disconnected,
‡ ‡ The socket is working. To check this, plug in another appliance that
you know which is working into the same socket.
What to do if your appliance performs poorly;
Check if;
‡ You have overloaded the appliance,
‡ The thermostat setting is “1” position (if so set the thermostat dial
suitable value)
‡ The doors are closed perfectly,
‡ There is no dust on the condenser,
‡ There is enough place at the rear and side walls.
If your fridge-freezer is operating too loudly;
To maintain the set cooling level, compressor may be activated from time
to time. Noises from your fridge-freezer at this time are normal and due
to its function. When the required cooling level is reached, noises will be
decreased automatically. If the noises persist;
‡ Is your appliance stable? Are the legs adjusted?
‡ Is there anything behind your fridge-freezer?
‡ Are the shelves or dishes on the shelves vibrating? Re-place the
shelves and/or dishes if this is the case.
‡ Are the items placed on your fridge-freezer vibrating?
Normal Noises;
Cracking (Ice cracking) Noise:
‡ During automatic defrosting.
‡ When the appliance is cooled or warmed (due to e[pansion of
appliance material).
Short cracking: Heard when the thermostat switches the compressor
on/off.
EN

EN
18
BEFORE CALLING YOUR AFTER SALES SERVICE
Compressor noise (Normal motor noise): This noise means that the
compressor operates normally Compressor may cause more noise for
a short time when it is activated.
Bubbling noise and splash: This noise is caused by the Àow of the
refrigerant in the tubes of the system.
:DWHUÀRZQRLVH Normal Àow noise of water Àowing to the evaporation
container during defrosting. This noise can be heard during defrosting.
Air Blowing Noise (Normal fan noise): This noise can be heard in
No-Frost refrigerator during normal operation of the system due to the
circulation of air.
If there is water in the lower part of the fridge freezer,
Check that;
‡ The drain hole for defrost water is not clogged (Use defrost drain plug
to clean the drain hole)
IMPORTANT NOTES:
‡ If the appliance is not used for long time (for e[ample during the
summer holidays) unplug and clean the appliance and leave the door
open to prevent the formation of mildew and smell.
‡ To stop the appliance completely, unplug from the mains socket (for
cleaning and when the doors are left open)
‡ If there is still a problem with your fridge freezer although you have
followed the instructions in this book, please consult your nearest
authorized service center.
‡ The lifetime of your appliance is stated and declared by the
Department of Industry. The length of time for retaining parts required
for the proper operation of the appliance is 10 years.
TIPS FOR SAVING ENERGY
1.Install the appliance in a cool, well ventilated room , but not in direct
sunlight and not near a heat source (radiator, cooker.. etc). Otherwise
use an insulating plate.
2.Allow warm food and drinks to cool down outside the appliance.
3.When thawing frozen food, place it in the refrigerator compartment.
The low temperature of the frozen food will help to cool the refrigerator
compartment when it is thawing. This will help to save energy. If the
frozen food is put out, it results in a waste of energy.
4.Cover drinks or other liquids when placing them in the appliance
Otherwise humidity increases in the appliance. Therefore, the working
time gets longer. Also covering drinks and other liquids helps to preserve
smell and taste.
5.Try to avoid keeping the doors open for long periods or opening the
doors too frequently as warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
6.Keep the covers of the different temperature compartments (crisper,
chiller ...etc ) closed
7.Door gasket must be clean and pliable. Replace gaskets if worn.
