Before operating

Final Check

Before you start using the fridge/ freezer check that:

1. 2. 3. 4.

The feet have been adjusted for perfect levelling.

The interior is dry and air can circulate freely at the rear of the cabinet.

Clean the interior as recommended under “CLEANING AND CARE.” Insert the plug into the wall socket and switch on the electricity supply.

• When the door is open the fridge interior light will come on.

5.

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.“Due to operation of the fan inside the frost free freezer compartment, overall noise level is slightly higher in comparison to non-frost free appliances. This is quite normal and is not a fault.”

6. 7.

Set the setting half way between min and max.

Front edges of the cabinet may feel warm. This is normal. These areas are designed to be warm to avoid condensation.

8. 9.

“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)” When the freezer reaches the desired temperature the freezer fan will stop. When the freezer fan is on, the noise will be louder when the freezer door is opened.

10.

Avoid spillage of food particularly small items like rice, peas, beans through the fan guard as they may cause the cooling system to block and therefore operate less efficiently.

13 EN

Using your refrigerator

Temperature Control And Adjustment

Operating temperatures are controlled by the thermostat (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 thermostat 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.

In case of a temporary ice build up in the fridge compartment, reduce the thermostat setting to 1, monitoring at the same time that the fridge temperature is maximum +5 degrees C [41 degrees F]. Once the ice build up disappears and the appliance starts auto defrosting again as normal, then you may increase the thermostat setting, if required.

15 EN

11.

Shelves, racks, crisper bins, drawers, flaps, bottle grippers are all removable.

12.

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.

13.

For hygiene reasons, always wrap food using a suitable packaging material before storing in your appliance to avoid contact with the appliance surface.

Storing Frozen Food

Prepacked commercially food should be stored in accordance with the frozen food manufacturer’s instructions for a frozen 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:

1.

Put packets in the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase.

2. 3.

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 13 hrs. If the failure is longer, then the food should be checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then re-frozen.

Freezing Fresh Food

Please possible.

(8.8 lb) observe the temperature control.

the following instructions to obtain the best results.

Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time. The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen right through to the core as quickly as Do not exceed the freezing capacity of your appliance in 24 h which is 4 kg 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 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.

16 EN

Making Ice Cubes

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 and stored in Ice Bank, they will slowly reduce in size and eventually disappear completely.

Defrosting

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.

Warnings!
