Using the Appliance
Before Use
Remove all securing tapes.
Wash the inside of the appliance with lukewarm water
with a little bicarbonate of soda added (5 ml to 0,5 litre
of water). Do not use soap or detergent as the smell
may linger. Dry the appliance thoroughly.
Do not use detergents, abrasive powders,
highly perfumed cleaning products, wax
polishes or products containing alcohol.
F To Start the Appliance
1. Allow the appliance to stand for 2 hrs after
installation.
2. Plug in the appliance and switch on at the mains
supply.
3. Turn the thermostat control to the required setting.
A setting of 3 - 4 is usually suitable for normal
operation (see thermostat control).
4. Leave the appliance for approximately 4 hours for
the correct temperature to be reached before
placing food inside.
Thermostat Control
The thermostat control situated inside the refrigerator
regulates the temperature of the larder compartment.
Thermostat control is marked from 1-5 the higher the
number, the colder the setting.
Position 0 - Off
Position 1 - minimum coldness
Position 5 - maximum coldness
Model
If the ambient
temperature is
greater than
Position of
drip tray
ER 6642 T
+25 °C
Open (pos. 1)
The temperature inside the refrigerator and the 2-star
compartment can be regulated further by adjusting
the tray located under the 2-star compartment.
To obtain a lower temperature in the 2-star
compartment when frozen food is stored inside and
when the ambient temperature is 25 °C or lower push
the tray in Position 2. When frozen food is not stored
in the 2-star compartment and when the ambient
temperature is higher than 25 °C pull the tray out to
Position 1.
If frozen food is stored in the 2-star compartment and
the ambient temperature is above 25 °C, pull the tray
out to position 1 and turn the thermostat control to a
colder setting (higher number). When the ambient
temperature falls below 25 °C turn the thermostat
control back to a medium setting and push the tray
into position 2.

Storage time and temperature of
foods
The enclosed charts at the end of the instruction
books give information about storage time in the
frozen and the fresh food compartment.
The storage times quoted are intended as a guide
only.
How to use the two-star frozen
food compartment
The frozen food compartment is separated from the
fresh food compartment by the drip tray.
Depending on the position of the thermostatic control
knob and the temperature in the compartment
(-12 °C or lower), frozen food can be stored here.
Small quantities of fresh food can be frozen in the twostar compartment but storing them for a long period of
time is not recommended.
Do not allow fresh food to come into contact with
foods that are already frozen.
How to make ice cubes
Fill the supplied ice cube tray ¾ full with water and
place in the freezer compartment. Turning up the
thermostat control will speed up the freezing process,
but remember to turn the thermostat control back to
its original position.
To release the ice cubes, twist the tray along its
length.
7
Storage Shelves
The shelves in the refrigerator compartment are
adjustable to allow storage of large items.
The shelves can be re-arranged by opening the door
to 90°.
The door shelves are also adjustable.
To allow the air to circulate within the fridge
compartment do not cover the wire shelves
with paper or trays.
Hints & Tips
Food Storage
To obtain the best results from your appliance
neither hot foods nor liquids which may evaporate,
should be placed in the larder compartment.
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your fridge as short as possible.
Do not push food together too much, try to allow air
to circulate around each item.
Do not store food uncovered.
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean, refer to cleaning and maintenance.
Energy Saving Advice
Do not install the cabinet close to sources of
heat, such as a cooker, dishwasher or radiator.
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
cabinet are not obstructed.
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge.
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods, or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet, and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the
door from closing properly.
It is advisable to periodically clean the
refrigeration system at the back of the appliance
with a duster or vacuum cleaner.
Maint enance & Cleaning
Before any maintenance of cleaning work is
carried out DISCONNECT the appliance from
the ELECTRICITY SUPPLY.
Internal Cleaning
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water and
bicarbonate of soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water). Rinse
and dry thoroughly.
Do not use detergents, abrasive powders,
highly perfumed cleaning products, wax
polishes or cleaning products containing
bleach or alcohol.
Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean
to ensure they are clean and free from debris.
8
External Cleaning
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water.
Once or twice a year dust the condenser (black
grille) and the compressor at the back of the
appliance with a brush or vacuum cleaner, as an
accumulation of dust will affect the performance of
the appliance and cause excessive electricity
consumption.
Defrosting
While in operation the **-star compartment becomes
progressively covered with frost.
This frost, which acts as an insulator and thus prevents
the cold from reaching the food should be removed
whenever the thickness of the frost exceeds 1/4”.
To carry out complete defrosting proceed as follows:
1. Push the conveyor completely in.
2. Place a tray on the upper shelf of the refrigerator
under the drain hole of the conveyor.
3. Remove any food from inside the **-star
compartment, wrap it in several sheets of
newspaper and store in a cool dry place.
4. Turn the thermostat knob on position << 0 >>. To
accelerate defrosting, place a bow of hot water
inside the compartment (with a piece of cardboard
underneath the bowl as protection).
5. When defrosting is completed, dry thoroughly and
remove the water collected in the tray.
Turn the thermostat knob on a medium position to
restart the appliance.
After letting the appliance run for at least half an
hour replace the previously removed food into the
** -star compartment.
When defrosting it is not necessary to remove the
foods from the inner door and the refrigerator
compartment.
Important
A temperature rise of the frozen food packs during
defrosting may shorten their storage life.
Never use sharp metal tools to scrape off frost from
the evaporator as youcould damage it beyond
repair.
Changing the Light Bulb
Should the light fail to work you can change it as
below:
Disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply.
Remove the lamp cover retaining screws, then take
the lamp cover off in the direction of the arrow and the
bulb can be changed. (Type of the bulb: 230 V, 15 W,
E 14 thread)
After changing the bulb replace the lamp cover, and
retaining screws and reconnect the appliance to the
electricity supply.
When the appliance is not in use
When the appliance is not in use for long periods
disconnect from the electricity supply, empty all of the
food and clean the appliance, leaving the door ajar to
prevent unpleasant smells.
