HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES
Normal Operating Sounds
The advanced design of today’s frost free appliances means you hear unfamilar noises during everyday
operation. The diagram below describes some of the noises you may hear. These are quite normal and your
appliance is operating correctly
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.
•
The thermostat control will
click when starting or
stopping the compressor.
The fan circulates cold air to
cool the refrigerator and the
freezer compartment and
sounds like air blowing or a
whirring sound.
The flow of refrigerant
through the freezer cooling
coil makes a gurgling noise.
Defrost water drips into the
drain pan during the defrost
cycle.
Water dropping on the defrost
heater causes a hissing or
popping sound during the
defrost cycle.
The automatic defrost timer
sounds like an electric clock
and clicks in and out of the
defrost cycle.
The compressor will make a
humming or pulsating sound
while
operating.

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.
•
Frozen food, once thawed, must not be refrozen.
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty
food, salt reduces the storage time.
•
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal .
•
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as
possible.
•
•
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 place as cool as possible in order that it
can then be placed in the refrigerator as soon as
possible).
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.
•
Never place hot food, bottles or cans of fizzy
drink in the freezer as they may explode.
Containers with a lid must not be filled to the
brim.
•
Do not open the door or place extra fresh food in
the freezer next to food which is already frozen
as this could cause the temperature of the frozen
food to rise and its quality and storage life to
reduce .
•
The symbols on the drawers show different types
of frozen goods.
•
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.
•
The best way to defrost food is to put it in the
refrigerator to thaw slowly.
•
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean (refer to “Maintenance and Cleaning).
•
Never allow spillages to dry and harden.
•
Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated
and labelled and used in date order to ensure
that food is consumed at its best.
•
It is important that food is used before its “best
before” date.
•
Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the
refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped
eggs.
•
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 between.
•
The fresh foods to be frozen must be fresh and of
the best quality.
•
The size of each pack should be small enough to
ensure that it is used in one go . Small packs
freeze more quickly and uniformly and give better
results.
The numbers indicate storage times in months for
the appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether
the upper or lower value of the indicated storage
time is valid depends on the quality of the foods
and pre-treating before freezing.

•
It is important that food is used before its “best
before” date.
•
Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the
refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped
eggs.
•
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 between.
•
The fresh foods to be frozen must be fresh and of
the best quality.
•
The size of each pack should be small enough to
ensure that it is used in one go . Small packs
freeze more quickly and uniformly and give better
results.
The numbers indicate storage times in months for
the appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether
the upper or lower value of the indicated storage
time is valid depends on the quality of the foods
and pre-treating before freezing.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Before any maintenance or cleaning work is carried
out, DISCONNECT the appliance from the
ELECTRICITY supply.
Internal cleaning
The freezer compartment
Thawing
Changing the light bulb
The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for
storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing
fresh foods.
Should the interior light fail to work, first switch off
the appliance and disconnect from the electricity
supply, then replace the bulb as follows;
Frozen or frozen food can be thawed in the fridge or
at room temperature depending on the time
available. Small food items may even be cooked
from frozen; in this case cooking will take longer.
Freezing fresh food
When freezing fresh foods set the slider control to
the “cold” position and turn the thermostat control to
a higher setting.
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water
and bicarbonate of soda (5ml to 0.5 litre of water).
Rinse and dry thoroughly.
In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 6 kg.
NEVER USE DETERGENTS, ABRASIVE
POWDERS, HIGHLY PERFUMED
CLEANING PRODUCTS OR WAX
POLISHES, TO CLEAN THE INTERIOR AS
THESE WILL DAMAGE THE SURFACE AND
LEAVE A STRONG ODOUR.
External cleaning
Many proprietary kitchen surface cleaners
contain chemicals that can attack/damage the
plastics used in this appliance. For this reason it
is recommended that the outer casing of this
appliance is only cleaned with warm water with a
little washing-up liquid added.
An accumulation of dust will affect the performance
of the appliance and cause excessive electricity
consumption.
You MUST ensure that the appliance is switched
OFF.
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 figure.
Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer of the
freezer as this is the coldest part.
After 24 hours reposition the slider control and
thermostat control to previous setting.
Important
D613
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 Expert Appliance Care).
Replace the light cover by sliding it into its original
position and replacing the screw.
Automatic Defrosting
Your appliance has been designed to be frost free.
This means there is no need to defrost your
appliance as this will be carried out automatically.
To ensure correct operation of the appliance do not
use the appliance with the basket or drawers
removed.
Frozen food storage
Frozen food can be stored in any basket or drawer of
the freezer compartment, including the fast freeze
compartment.
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the
manufacturer.
Do not open the door frequently or leave it open
longer than is absolutely necessary.
Warning
Ices lollies, if consumed immediately after removal
from the freezer, can cause low temperature skin
burns.
Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands
are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or
“frost/freezer burns”.
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with one or more trays for
ice-cubes trays.
When the appliance is not in use
Fill the tray(s) 3/4 full to give the ice space to expand
and place them in the freezer compartment.
When the appliance is not in use for long periods,
disconnect from the electricity supply, empty all
foods and clean the appliance, leaving the doors ajar
to prevent unpleasant smells.
To release the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight
twist.
10
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator 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
frozen food: follow the oven instructions, particularly
regarding the placement of aluminium wrapping or
containers in the oven.
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks etc.), in
the freezer compartment.
PR259
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw
accidentally should either be eaten as soon as
possible or thrown away. Alternatively, if the food is
uncooked and has not been completely defrosted it
can be cooked and then refrozen.
Important!
In the event of a power failure - DO NOT OPEN
THE DOOR, the food in the freezer will not be
affected if the power cut is short and the freezer
is full.
If the temperature in the freezer rises, and the
food begins to thaw, do not re-freeze the food
without checking its conditions.
The following guidelines should assist you.
Ice-cream: once thawed should be discarded.
Fruits & Vegetables: if soft should be cooked and
used up.
Breads & Cakes: can be re-frozen without danger.
Shellfish: should be refrigerated and used up
quickly.
Cooked Dishes: i.e. casseroles should be
refrigerated and used up.
Large Pieces of Meat: can be re-frozen providing
there are still ice crystals remaining within them.
Small Joints: should be cooked and can then be refrozen as cooked dishes.
Chicken: should also be cooked and re-frozen as a
cooked dish.
Do not use sharp or metallic instruments to remove
the trays from the freezer.
