User Instructions
Useful information
The following guidelines and recommendations are suggested to obtain the best results and storage
y Frequent door openings can cause internal temperature to rise so the door should be closed as soon as
possible after use.
y For hygiene reasons, it is always a good practise to pack, wrap and cover the food before storing.
y Use a polythene bag to store raw meat and place on the lowest shelf. Avoid contact with cooked food
to prevent contamination. For safety reasons, store raw meat for two to three days only.
y Cooked dishes must be stored in airtight covered containers.
y Food and beverages should cool to room temperature before storing.
y Most vegetables should be blanched and chilled before freezing.
y Bottles can be placed in the door section.
y Some fruits and vegetables like pineapples, melons, tomatoes, and cucumbers should be wrapped in
polythene bags.
y Do not leave frozen food at room temperature to thaw. You could defrost the food by putting it in the
fridge to thaw slowly. Make sure you avoid defrosting food dripping food juices onto other food.
Energy saving tips
• Place your fridge away from direct sunlight, your oven or any other heat sources. Allow 20 cm clear
space on both sides and above, and at least 5 cm behind.
• Cover all food stored, and arrange it so that cold air can circulate freely.
• Higher cold setting will use more energy. Do not set to maximum cold if it is not necessary.
• Cool the hot/warm food to room temperature before putting them into your fridge.
• Frequently opening and closing the door would cause the internal temperature to rise and it will consume
more energy.
• Close the door(s) properly, and make sure the seals and hinges are airtight. Check the seals by
putting a sheet of paper between the door and the main body of the fridge. If the paper moves, your
seals need replacing.
• Defrost regularly if your refrigerator is not a frost-free or cyclic defrost model. Accumulated ice layer
should not be more than 5 mm thick.
• The pre-set combination of drawers, baskets and shelves have already been set in the most efficient way for
use of this product.
Fridge Compartment
• The fridge compartment defrosts automatically. The defrosting water runs
through the drain port to the drain tray at the back of the appliance.
• In the case, that some droplets may remain inside the compartment and re-freeze,
after the defrosting cycle, this is normal. Do not use pointed or sharp objects, i.e. knives or forks, to
remove the droplets which have frozen.
• Check the collection channel to ensure that no food particles have blocked the drain channel.
User Instructions
Freezer Compartment
To help you make the most of the freezing process, here are some important hints:
the maximum quantity of food which can be frozen in 24 hrs. is shown on the rating plate;
the freezing process takes 24 hours. No further food, to be frozen should be added during
this period;
only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly cleaned, foodstuffs;
prepare food in small portions to enable it to be rapidly and completely frozen and to make
it possible to thaw only the quantity required;
wrap up the food in aluminium foil or polythene and make sure that the packages are airtight;
do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to touch food which is already frozen, thus avoiding a rise in
temperature of the latter;
lean foods store better and longer than fatty ones; salt reduces the storage life of food;
water ices, if consumed immediately after removal from the freezer compartment, can
possibly cause the skin to be freeze burnt;
removing items from the freezer compartment, can possibly cause the skin to be freeze burnt;
it is advisable to show the freezing in date on each individual pack to enable you to keep
tab of the storage time.
