o Make sure that you arrange food in such a way that the door can
close completely. Particular attention should be given to bottles
that may protrude when placed on shelves inside the main
section of the refrigerator.
o Some organic solutions, such as the oils in lemon/orange peel
and acid in butter, can cause damage to the plastic parts
contained inside of the refrigerator.
o Do not open the refrigerator doors too often or leave the doors
open for long periods of time, as this will increase the
temperature inside of the appliance.
o Meat should be wrapped in polythene bags and then placed on
the glass shelf above the crisper drawers. Alternatively it can be
stored in the crisper drawers or the full width pantry (they must
be set appropriately).
o Cold dishes/cooked food should be covered and can be placed
on any shelf or in the crisper drawers or full width pantry (they
must be set appropriately).

in either the crisper drawers or full width pantry (they must be
set appropriately).
o Fruit should be cleaned thoroughly and placed in either the
crisper drawers or full width pantry (they must be set
appropriately).
o Cheese and butter should be placed in airtight containers, or
they can be wrapped in aluminium foil or polythene bags. As
much air as possible should be removed from the bags. The
dairy compartment should be utilised.

The **** freezer section
The freezer section is suitable for storing and freezing food.
o The freezer section temperature must have already reached -18
degrees centigrade (or lower) before you attempt to store food
that is already frozen or freezing fresh food.
o The freezer compartment is only able to freeze a certain quantity
of fresh food at one time. The maximum amount of fresh food
(in kilograms) that can be frozen in a 24 hour period is 10 kg.
o Warm food should be allowed to cool down before you attempt
to freeze it. If you place warm food in the freezer compartment,
then the increased humidity will cause quicker ice formation and
increase the amount of power that the appliance uses.
o The guidance of the food manufacturer should be followed, in
regard to the maximum storage time.
o Thawed foods must not be frozen for a second time.
Freezing fresh food
o When freezing fresh food, after placing the food
in the relevant freezer drawer, you should press
the express freeze button.
o Fresh food should be packed into airtight
containers or packaging. This will help to make
sure that the food doesn’t dry out or lose its
flavour. It will also ensure that flavour does not
transfer from other foods.
o Do not allow fresh food to touch items that are
already frozen.
21
Downloaded from Fridge-Manual.com Manuals
o After 24 hours you should check that the fresh food is
satisfactorily frozen.
Tips on freezing
o Freezer bags, polythene wraps, aluminium
foil (extra thick) and special cans for frozen
foods are suitable packaging for storing
frozen goods in.
o Tape, rubber bands or plastic clips are suitable for sealing bags
and wrappings.
o Before sealing a suitable bag, you should compress the air out of
it, as this will help the food to freeze more easily.
o Flat packages freeze more easily.
o If you are freezing liquid, then do not fill the
container to the brim. Liquids will expand when
being frozen.
o Do not place bottles (glass or tin) containing
liquids (especially sparkling liquids) into the
freezer as this could cause the bottle to
burst during freezing.
Storing commercially frozen food
o The storage time and recommended temperature for storing
commercially frozen foods are indicated on the packaging.
o Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for storage and
use of frozen food.
o When shopping, be careful to choose food which is adequately
packed and is provided with complete storage instructions. It
should have been stored in a freezer where the temperature
does not rise above -18°C.
o Do not buy packages of food that are covered with frost. This
could indicate that the package has thawed at least once before.
22
Downloaded from Fridge-Manual.com Manuals
o Take care that your frozen food packages do not start to thaw
before you place them in your freezer. This will shorten the
length of time that you can safely store the food for.
Defrosting frozen food
o Partially thawed or defrosted foods should be used as soon as
possible.
o Cold air preserves the food but it does not destroy the micro
organisms which rapidly activate themselves after defrosting and
make foods perishable.
o Partial defrosting reduces the nutritional value of food, especially
fruits, vegetables and readymade meals.
In the event of a power cut
o If there is a power cut, then food inside of the appliance will
remain at a safe temperature for approximately 3 hours.
o If the power cut is short, then the best place to leave the frozen
food is inside of the freezer compartment. Particularly if there
are ice cubes inside the of the upper freezer drawer, as this will
help to maintain the temperature.
o If there is a prolonged power cut, then you may need to remove
food from the freezer section and store it in a cold place. To
preserve the temperature, you should wrap the food in layers of
newspaper.
o Once power is restored, if the food has not started to defrost,
then it should be returned to the freezer section.
o If any of the food has started to defrost, then you should not
return it into the freezer section, it should be consumed within a
short period of time.

aware that one of the doors has been left open.
o When you hear the audible alarm, you should immediately check
that all of the doors are shut properly.
The ice maker
The ice maker and ice maker tray is located in the upper freezer
drawer.
How the ice maker works
o The ice maker tray periodically receives an automatic flow of
water into it.
o A sensor on the ice maker tray senses when the water has
frozen and automatically twists the tray and dispenses the ice
cubes into the ice cube storage case below.
o The capacity of the ice maker depends on the ambient
temperature, frequency of the freezer drawers being opened and
the temperature that the freezer section has been set to.
o Typically the ice maker will dispense 1.8 kg of ice per day.
o If the ice cube storage case becomes full, then the automatic ice
making operation will stop.
26
Downloaded from Fridge-Manual.com Manuals
o When the ice maker is dispensing ice into the upper freezer
drawer, circular dashes will appear on the digital display of the
dispenser control panel. IMPORTANT: You should not attempt
to open the upper freezer drawer whilst the ice maker is
dispensing ice.
Ice maker advice and maintenance
o When opening the upper freezer drawer, you should take care
not too open it with too much force or too quickly. Otherwise
you may cause ice cubes to drop into the lower freezer drawer.
o You should clean the ice cube storage case regularly using warm
water. You should dry the ice storage case thoroughly before
replacing it into the upper freezer drawer, otherwise ice cubes
may stick to it.
o If you are not going to use the ice cubes contained in the ice
storage case for a long period of time, then you should clear the
remaining ice cubes. Then clean and dry the ice cube storage
case before refitting it into the upper freezer drawer.
IMPORTANT: You should then switch the ice maker off (see the
section below).
Switching the ice maker off
o Press and hold the freezer section “>” freezer temperature
adjustment button and the fridge section “<” fridge temperature
adjustment button simultaneously.
o This will stop water being fed to the ice maker, but will not
affect the operation of the water dispenser.

Dispenser and ice maker warnings
o To prevent a bad odour then you should regularly remove the ice
from the ice cube storage case.
o If you have not dispensed ice for a period of time, then clear all
of the ice out of the ice cube storage case and let the appliance
produce fresh ice.
o DO NOT USE ICE THAT HAS BEEN STORED IN THE ICE
STORAGE CASE FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME.
o IMPORTANT: If you find that the ice is discoloured, DO
NOT use the ice.
o
o
o
o
Remove all of the ice in the ice cube storage case.
Let fresh ice form.
If the ice is still discoloured then change the water filter.
If the ice is STILL discoloured after changing the water
filter, then contact the Baumatic Customer Care
Department.
o If there is a power cut you should remove all ice from the ice
cube storage case. If you leave the ice in the storage case, then
it will melt and water will flow into the main section of the
freezer.
o DO NOT insert your fingers or any tools into the dispenser
outlet.
Saving energy when using your fridge-freezer
Installing:
o Install the appliance in a cool position. If it is placed in direct
sunlight or next to an oven or other heat source, the energy
consumption can increase substantially.
o Ensure the appliance is installed with the correct ventilation
requirements. Restricting ventilation can increase the energy
consumption by 15%.
Cleaning and Maintenance:
o Occasionally clean the condenser coils (if present) at the back of
the appliance to maintain a high performance level.
28
Downloaded from Fridge-Manual.com Manuals
o Clean the door gasket with warm water or a neutral detergent
that leaves no residue. A tight-sealing door gasket is critical to
the efficiency of your appliance.
Usage:
o Do not open the door repeatedly or more frequently than you
have to.
o Do not set the thermostat too low. A change of just one degree
can effect the energy consumption by 5%. Use a thermometer to
check the temperature.
o The freezer compartment should operate at -15 to -18 degrees
Celsius. The refrigerator should operate at around 3 to 4 degrees
Celsius.

The defrost drain hole
o Defrosting occurs automatically in the refrigerator section during
operation. The defrost water is collected by the evaporating tray
and evaporates automatically.
o The drain hole should be cleaned periodically with the drain hole
cleaner. This will prevent water from collecting in the bottom of
the refrigerator, instead of flowing down the defrost drainage
channel and drain hole.
o IMPORTANT: Please note that the drain hole cleaner should not
be left in position permanently. Otherwise this may prevent the
defrost water from entering the drain hole.
o You can also pour a small amount of water down the drain hole
to clean the defrost drainage channel.
o You should be careful to make sure that food packages do not
touch the rear wall of the appliance, as this can interrupt the
automatic defrosting process and deflect water into the base of
your refrigerator.
o Use a solution of bicarbonate of soda and lukewarm water to
clean the evaporating tray.
o IMPORTANT: It is normal to get some ice droplets forming on
the back wall of the appliance. The formation of ice droplets does
not indicate an appliance fault.
o If you are getting a lot of ice on the back wall of the appliance,
then check that the thermostat is set appropriately and that the
express chill function has not been switched on.
