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 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.

ENERGY SAVING TIPS 1-

Ensure your appliance is installed in a well ventilated area. If the ambient temperature is low (but in no case lower than (towards 1) if necessary.

10

degrees C), then the energy saving will be more. In this case, check temperatures of fridge and freezer compartments with an accurate thermometer and lower the thermostat setting

2-

Ensure the time between buying chilled/frozen food and placing them in your appliance is kept at minimum, particularly in summer. We recommend you use a cool bag or a special carrier bag to carry frozen food.

3-

Do not leave the door (s) of your appliance open longer than necessary and ensure they are closed properly after each opening.

4-

Defrost your appliance regularly (see "Defrosting") .

5-

Defrost frozen food in the fridge compartment, so that frozen food acts as an ice pack to assist cooling in the fridge.

PROBLEM SOLVING

If the appliance does not operate, check whether: • The plug is inserted properly in the socket and that the power supply is on. (To check the power supply to the socket, plug in another appliance) .

• The fuse has blown/circuit breaker has tripped/main distribution switch has been turned off.

• The temperature control has been set correctly.

• New plug is wired correctly if you have changed the fitted moulded plug.

If the appliance is still not operating after the above checks, please refer to the section on “

Does Beko offer replacements?

This is a repair-only guarantee. On occasion, the Manufacturer may at its sole discretion, replace your product with a new product instead of carrying out a repair. Where a replacement is offered, this would normally be an identical model but when this is not possible, a model of similar specification will be provided. The Manufacturer will cover the costs and arrange for the delivery of the new product and for the return of the old product. Any costs related to disconnecting the faulty product and installing the replacement product will not be borne by the Manufacturer unless previously agreed to in writing. The original guarantee will continue to apply to the replacement product; the new product will not come with a new guarantee.

When will the repair take place?

Our Engineers work Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm. Appointments outside these hours may be possible at the sole discretion of the Manufacturer but cannot be guaranteed. Whilst our Engineers will endeavour to minimize inconvenience and to meet requests for specific timed appointments, this cannot be guaranteed. We will not be liable for delays or if it is unable to carry out a repair because a convenient appointment cannot be arranged.

Will there be any charge for the repairs?

It is your responsibility to provide evidence to the Engineer that your product is covered by this guarantee with a proof of purchase. The Manufacturer reserves the right to charge for the reasonable cost of any service call if: • You cannot provide evidence that your product is covered by this guarantee.

• Where a service call has been made and the engineer finds that there is no fault with your product.

• That your product has not been installed or operated in accordance with the User Instructions Booklet.

• That the fault was caused by something other than faulty materials, defective components or manufacturing defects.

• For missed appointments.

Payment of these costs are due immediately upon the Engineer providing you with an invoice. The Manufacturer reserves the right to terminate the guarantee if you fail to pay the costs for the service call in a timely manner. If you are a resident of the United Kingdom, this guarantee will be governed by English law and subject to the English Courts, save where you live in another part of the United Kingdom, in which case the law and courts of that location will apply. If you are resident in the Republic of Ireland, this guarantee will be governed by Irish law and the Irish courts will have jurisdiction. This guarantee is provided by Beko plc. Beko House, 1 Greenhill Crescent, Watford, Hertfordshire. WD18 8QU. Beko plc is registered in England and Wales with company registration number 02415578.
