Before you start using the fridge/ freezer check that:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
The feet have been adjusted for perfect levelling.
The interior is dry and air can circulate freely at the rear. Clean the interior as recommended under “CLEANING AND CARE.” Insert the plug into the wall socket and switch on the electricity supply.
Avoid accidental disconnection by taping over the switch. You will hear a noise as the compressor starts up. The liquid and gases sealed within the refrigeration system may also give rise to noise, whether the compressor is running or not which is quite normal.
If you are going to store already frozen food ensure the freezer has reached the correct temperature. Then you can put in your already frozen food.
“ Slight undulation of the top of the cabinet is quite normal due to the manufacturing process used, so do not worry, it is not a defect.
Front edges of the cabinet may feel warm. This is normal. These areas are designed to be warm to avoid condensation.
We recommend that you set the thermostat at 3 and monitor the temperature to ensure the appliance maintains desired storage temperatures (see section Temperature Control and Adjustment).
Do not load the appliance immediately it is switched on. Wait until the correct storage temperature has been reached. We recommend that you check the temperature with an accurate thermometer (see; Temperature Control and Adjustment).
Important Notes :
1. If there is a power failure do not open the door. Frozen food should not be affected if the failure lasts for less than 16.5 hours. If the failure is longer, then the food should be checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then re-frozen.
2. If you find the freezer door difficult to open just after you have closed it, don’t worry. This is due to the pressure difference which will equalise and allow the door to open normally after a few minutes.
3. Always wrap food using a suitable packaging material before storing in your appliance to avoid contact with the appliance surface and food remains for hygiene reasons.
Operating temperatures are controlled by the control (see diagram) located on the ceiling of fridge compartment. Settings may be made from min, 1 ... 6, max, max being the coldest position.
When the appliance is switched on for the first time, the setting should be adjusted so that after 24 hours, the average fridge temperature is no higher than +5°C (+41°F). We recommend you set the control half way between the min and max setting and monitor to obtain the desired temperature i. e. towards max you will obtain a colder fridge temperature and vice versa. Some sections of the fridge may be cooler or warmer ( such as the salad crisper and the top part of the cabinet ) which is quite normal.
The normal storage temperature of the freezer should be -18°C (0°F). Lower temperatures may be obtained by adjusting setting towards max position.
We recommend that you check the temperature with an accurate thermometer to ensure that the storage compartments are kept to the desired temperature.
Remember you must take your reading very quickly since the thermometer temperature will rise very rapidly after you remove it from the appliance.
Please remember each time the door is opened cold air escapes and the internal temperature rises. Therefore never leave the door open and ensure it is closed immediately after food is put in or removed.

The freezer compartment is rated and suitable for the freezing of fresh food and storage of pre-frozen food. The recommendation for times.
storage as stated on the food packaging should be observed at all Cooked dishes must be stored in airtight covered containers.
Fresh wrapped produce can be placed on the shelf. Fresh fruit and vegetables should be cleaned and stored in the crisper bins.
Bottles can be placed in the door section.
To store raw meat, wrap in polythene bags and place on the lowest shelf. Do not allow to come into contact with cooked food to avoid contamination. For safety, only store raw meat for two to three days.
Keep the food packed wrapped or covered. Allow hot food and beverages to cool before placing them in the fridge. Do not store explosive substances. High proof alcohol must be stored upright in sealed containers. Left over canned food should not be stored in the can.
Fizzy drinks should not be frozen and products such as flavoured water ices should not be consumed too cold.
Some fruit and vegetables suffer damage if kept at temperatures near 0°C. Therefore wrap pineapples, melons, cucumbers, tomatoes and similar produce in polythene bags.
Place chilled cooked food and similar food near the rear of the fridge inner liner where the cold wall is located.
. Shelves, racks, crisper bins, drawers, flaps, bottle grippers are all removable.
Do not leave frozen food at room temperature to thaw; the best way to defrost food is to put it in the fridge to thaw slowly. Make sure you avoid defrosting food or food juices drip onto other food.
For hygiene reasons, always wrap food using a suitable packaging material before storing in your appliance to avoid contact with the appliance surface.
Prepacked commercially frozen food should be stored in accordance with the frozen food manufacturer’s instructions for a frozen food storage compartment.
To ensure that the high quality achieved by the frozen food manufacturer and the food retailer is maintained, the following should be remembered:
Put packets in the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase.
Ensure that contents are labelled and dated.
Do not exceed “Use By”, “Best Before” dates on the packaging.
If there is a power failure do not open the door. Frozen food should not be affected if the failure lasts for less than 20 hrs. If the failure is longer, then the food should be checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then re-frozen.
Please observe the following instructions to obtain the best results.
Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time. The quality of the food 16 is best preserved when it is frozen right through to the core as quickly as possible.
Do not exceed the freezing capacity of your appliance in 24 h which is 4 kg (8.8 lb) Placing warm food into the freezer compartment causes the refrigeration compressor to operate continuously until the food is frozen solid. This can temporarily lead to excessive cooling of the refrigeration compartment.
When freezing fresh food turn the thermostat towards MAX. Small quantities of food up to 1/2 kg. (1 lb) can be frozen without having to rotate the temperature control.
You may place fresh food to be frozen in any part of the freezer.
Take special care not to mix already frozen food and fresh food.
Fill the ice - cube tray 3/4 full with water and place it in the Ice Bank. Loosen frozen trays with the handle of a spoon, never use sharp edged objects such as knives, forks. Store ice-cubes in the Ice Bank.
Note: If freshly made ice cubes are not consumed for several weeks EN
and stored in Ice Bank, they will slowly reduce in size and eventually disappear completely.
A) FRIDGE COMPARTMENT
The fridge compartment defrosts automatically. The defrosting water runs to the drain tube via a collection container at the back of the appliance (1). (see diagram) During defrosting water droplets may form at the back of the fridge compartment where concealed evaporator is located. Some droplets may remain on the liner and refreeze when defrosting is completed. Do not allow items in the fridge to touch the back wall as the water droplets will make them wet. Do not use pointed or sharp edged objects such as knives, forks to remove the droplets which have frozen.
If at any time the defrost water does not drain from the collection channel, check to ensure that no food particles have blocked the drain tube. The drain tube can be cleared by pushing the special plastic plunger provided down the drain tube (2). If the frost layer reaches about 1/4”(7 mm), reduce the setting (i.e. from 4 to 1) to restart automatic defrosting
B) FREEZER COMPARTMENT
The freezer compartment defrosts automatically.
The fan inside the freezer compartment circulates cold air. Never insert any object through the guard. Do not allow children to play with the freezer fan.
Never store products that contain inflammable propellant gas (eg dispensers, spray cans etc.) or explosive substances.
Don’t cover the shelves with any protective materials, which may obstruct air circulation.
Do not allow children to play with the appliance or tamper with the controls.
Do not obstruct the freezer fan guard to ensure that you obtain the best possible performance from your appliance.
