material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
Position ● = minimum coldness
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Turn the thermostat control knob to the required
position.
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the
following factors:
– room temperature
– how often the door is opened
– how much food is stored
– position of the appliance

INSTALLATION
Important
IF YOU ARE DISCARDING AN OLD APPLIANCE
THAT HAS A LOCK OR CATCH ON THE DOOR,
YOU MUST ENSURE THAT IT IS MADE
UNUSABLE TO PREVENT YOUNG CHILDREN
BEING TRAPPED INSIDE.
Positioning
This appliance should only be installed at a location
where the ambient temperature corresponds to the
climate classification indicated on the rating plate,
which is located at the left on the inside of the
appliance.
Normal Operating Sounds
Depending upon the position which you choose for
your appliance, you may wish to reverse the way in
which the door opens. To do this, refer to instructions
on “Door reversal”.
•
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/evaporator.
Please ensure that when the appliance is
installed it is easily accessible for the engineer in
the event of a breakdown.
•
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 out.
Important
It must be possible to disconnect the appliance from
the mains power supply; the plug must therefore be
easily accessible after installation.
Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator have runners so that
shelves can be positioned as desired.

or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator.
Please ensure that when the appliance is
installed it is easily accessible for the engineer in
the event of a breakdown.
•
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 out.
