electricity supply.Avoid accidental
disconnection by taping over the
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.
6. 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.
7. “ 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.
8. Front edges of the cabinet may

Important Notes :
11. If there is a power failure
do not open the door. Frozen food
should not be affected if the failure
lasts for less than 14 hours. If the
failure is longer, then the food
should be checked and either eaten
immediately or cooked and then refrozen.
12. 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.
13. 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
5 Using your refrigerator
Temperature Control And Adjustment
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
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 freezing of fresh food and
storage of pre-frozen food. The
recommendation for
as stated on the food packaging
should be observed at all times.
3. Cooked dishes must be stored
in airtight covered containers.
4. Fresh wrapped produce can be
placed on the shelf. Fresh fruit and
vegetables should be cleaned and
stored in the crisper bins.
5. Bottles can be placed in the
door section.
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. Fizzy drinks should not be
frozen and products such as flavoured
water ices should not be consumed
too cold.
9. 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.
10. Place chilled cooked food and
similar food near the rear of the
fridge inner liner where the cold wall
is located.
11. Shelves, racks, crisper bins,
drawers, flaps, bottle grippers are all
12. Do not leave frozen food at

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 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
1. Put packets in the freezer as
quickly as possible after purchase.
2. Ensure that contents are
labelled and dated.
3. 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 14 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 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
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 3,5
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
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.
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.
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
The fan inside the freezer
compartment circulates cold air. Never
any object through the guard. Do not
allow children to play with the freezer
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
