Before use
Remove all securing tapes. Wash inside the
appliance with lukewarm water and bicarbonate of
soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water). Do not use soap or
detergent as the smell may linger. Dry thoroughly.
Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the refrigerator is regulated
by a thermostat control knob with 6 temperature
positions and one «OFF» (O) position.
Position 1 = minimum coldness
Position 6 = maximum coldness
Turn the thermostat control knob to the required
An intermediate position is usually the most suitable,
although the temperature will be affected by:
• Room temperature
• How often the door is opened
• How much food is stored
• Position of the appliance
In determining the correct temperature control setting
all these factors have to be considered and some
experimentation may be necessary.
When altering the temperature setting, allow 24
hours for the temperature to stablise before making
further changes.
During prolonged periods of abnormally hot
weather, if the thermostat is set on too high a
number, the cooling system may operate
continuously and the fridge cooling plate may
not defrost. Turning the knob to a lower
number will cause the automatic defrosting to
If you wish to return to a lower temperature,
turn the thermostat knob to a higher number,
however you should turn the setting lower
occasionally to allow automatic defrosting.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for one
or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad bin.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with
runners so that shelves can be positioned as
The door shelves
To permit storage of food packages of various sizes,
the central door shelf can be adjusted in height.
To do this proceed as in the figure.
Fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & chicken or poultry):
wrap in polythene bags and place on top of the salad
The top shelf lid can be removed for easier cleaning.
-star compartment
This compartment is suitable for freezing fresh food,
for the storage of commercially frozen food and for
ice cube making.
Freezing fresh food
To freeze fresh foods it is not necessary to change
the setting of the thermostat knob.
However, for a quicker freezing operation, turn the
thermostat knob to the coldest setting; but remember
that, in this condition, the refrigerator compartment
temperature might drop below 0°C. If this occurs
reset thermostat knob to a warmer setting.
Only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly cleaned
Do not allow fresh food to touch food which is
already frozen.
During the freezing process, ensure that the freezer
compartment door remains closed.
Frozen food storage
Storing ready-frozen foods is quite straightforward.
The packs can be placed beside each other or on top
of each other.
You are strongly advised to place ready-frozen food
in the compartment as quickly as possible after
purchase and we therefore recommend that you buy
them last. Also ensure that the external packaging is
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of refrozen
water droplets on the pack could indicate that the
product has not been kept at a suitable temperature
and that it may have lost its original quality.
Partially thawed food must not be refrozen, it must
be consumed within 24 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated.
Do not open the
-star compartment door too
often and do not leave open longer than necessary.
In the event of a power cut do not open the
door. The food in the
compartment will not be affected if the power
cut is short and if the compartment is full.
Should the food begin to thaw, it must be
consumed quickly and must not be re-frozen.
Food can be thawed in a number of ways, depending
on the type of food and the size of the packs.
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigeration compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the
oven instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping in the oven.
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with a plastic ice cube tray.
Fill the tray 3/4 full to allow the ice to expand and
place it in the
-star compartment. To turn out
the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight twist to
release the cubes.
Never try to free an ice tray that is frozen to the
-star compartment using a sharp or
pointed object.
Do not consume ice-lollies which have just
come out of the
-star compartment.
Their extremely low temperature can cause
frost burns. Do not remove items from the
-star compartment if your hands are
damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions
or "frost/freezer burns".
Normal Operating Sounds
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when
the refrigerant is pumped through the coils or tubing
at the rear, to the cooling plate.
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being
pumped round, and you will hear a whirring sound or
pulsating noise from the compressor.
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you will
hear a faint ‘click’ when the thermostat cuts in and
Health and Safety Guidelines
Because of consumer demand, preservatives have been removed from many pre-prepared foods.
This together with the changes in shopping habits to a once-a-week shop, mean that safe handling and
storage of food is even more important than ever.
The following tips should help you to ensure that
the food in your home is in as perfect condition
as possible.
• Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your fridge as short as possible. Tests
showed that the temperature of 1 litre of orange
juice rose to 22°C in an hour between the
supermarket and home. It then took 11 hours to get
down to 7°C in the refrigerator.
• Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as
• Do not push food together too much, try to allow air
to circulate around each item.
• Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do
NOT place in the refrigerator until cool. (Leave food
in a cool place in order that it can then be placed in
the refrigerator as soon as possible).
• Do NOT mix raw and cooked meat, they must be in
separate containers. Take care not to let the meat
juices drip onto other food. If the meat does drip,
remove everything and clean thoroughly.
• Do not store food uncovered.
• Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean the interior (see “Maintenance and
• Never allow spillages to dry and harden.
• Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the
refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped
• Regularly check the refrigerator door seal to
ensure that it is clean and free from debris.
• Always wash your hands with soapy water and dry
them with a clean towel before handling food.
• Keep work surfaces clean and avoid cross
contamination by not using the same work surface
or knife, without washing them thoroughly in
The refrigerator automatically defrosts every time the
compressor stops. The water is discharged, via the
pipe, into a tray located below the appliance, where it
To avoid defrost water overflowing into the
fridge, periodically clean the water discharge
hole in the centre of the V shaped drip
collector at the back of the refrigerator
compartment behind the fruit and vegetable
drawers. Use the special cleaner provided
which you will find already inserted into the
discharge hole.
The freezer compartment, however, will become
progressively covered with frost. This should be
removed with the special plastic scraper provided,
whenever the thickness of the frost exceeds 4 mm.
During this operation it is not necessary to switch off
the power supply or to remove the foodstuffs.
Never use sharp metal tools to scrape off
frost from the evaporator as you could
damage it.
Do not use a mechanical device or any artificial
means to speed up the thawing process other than
those recommended by the manufacturer.
However, when the ice becomes very thick on the
inner liner, complete defrosting should be carried out
as follows:
1. pull out the plug from the wall socket or turn the
thermostat knob to the «O» setting;
2. remove any stored food, wrap it in several layers
of newspaper and put it in a cool place;
3. leave the door open, place a basin on the top shelf
of the refrigerator compartment, under the drain
hole, remove the plug as shown in the figure;
4. when defrosting is completed, dry the interior
thoroughly and refit the plug.
Keep the scraper for future use; turn the thermostat
knob back to the required setting or replace the plug
in the power socket. After two or three hours, reload
the previously removed food into the compartment.
A temperature rise of the frozen food packs,
during defrosting, may shorten their safe
storage life.
Maintenance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance or cleaning work
is carried out, DISCONNECT the appliance
from the ELECTRICITY supply.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in
its cooling unit maintenance and
recharging must therefore only be carried
out by authorised technicians.
Internal cleaning
Changing the light bulb
Should the interior light fail to work, first switch off the
appliance and disconnect from the electricity supply,
then replace the bulb as follows:
1. Unscrew the light cover and then pull it outward by
pressing as shown in the figure. Unscrew the bulb
and replace it with a new 15 watt bulb (available
from your nearest Service Force centre).
2. Replace the light cover by sliding it into its original
position and replacing the screw.
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water
and bicarbonate of soda (5ml to 0.5 litre of water).
Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Clean the drain hole of the water trough at regular
intervals and make sure that the drain hole is never
obstructed, so that the defrost water may flow freely.
Do not use abrasive products.
External cleaning
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water. Do
NOT use abrasive products.
Once or twice a year dust the condenser (black grill)
and the compressor at the back of the appliance,
with a brush or vacuum cleaner, see the figure.
You MUST ensure that the appliance is switched
OFF. An accumulation of dust will affect the
performance of the appliance and cause excessive
electricity consumption.
When the appliance is not in use
When the appliance is not in use for long periods,
disconnect from the electricity supply, empty all foods
and clean the appliance, leaving the door ajar to
prevent unpleasant smells.
