• Repair or replace immediately all electric service cords that have become frayed or otherwise damaged.

Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion along its length or at either the plug or appliance end.

• If the power supply cord is damaged, it must only be replaced by your Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician because special purpose tools are required.

SAFETY AND WARNINGS

• When moving your appliance away from the wall, be careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.

• Do not use electrical appliances inside the food storage compartments of the appliance.

IMPORTANT!

Your refrigerator is designed to operate for many years without the need for service checks. However, if your refrigerator is malfunctioning, have it attended to by your Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician as soon as possible.

All electrical repairs must be carried out by an adequately trained service technician or qualified electrician.

Cleaning

Many commercially available cleaning products contain solvents which may attack plastic components of your refrigerator and cause them to crack. Please refer to the cleaning care section of this booklet for further advice.

Disposal

Extreme care must be taken when disposing of your old appliance to avoid hazards:

– The flammable refrigerant gas must be safely removed.

– The thermal insulation foam contained in this appliance is produced by flammable insulation blowing gases, any exposed foam may be highly flammable and must be carefully treated during disposal.

– The doors should be removed and the shelves left in place so that children may not easily climb inside.

5

SAFETY AND WARNINGS

• Your Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician will be able to give advice on environmentally friendly methods of disposing of your old refrigerator or freezer.

Storing food and drinks

• Do not store explosive substances such as aerosol cans with a flammable propellant in this appliance.

• Never store volatile or flammable materials in your refrigerator as they may explode.

• Never freeze liquids in glass containers. Liquid expands during freezing, which may cause the container to explode.

• Never freeze carbonated drinks. They may explode.

• Do not consume food if it is too cold. Food removed from the freezer compartment may be cold enough to cause damage when brought into contact with bare skin, eg frozen ice cubes.

6

Power failure – food safety

• Do not refreeze frozen foods that have thawed completely. The food may be dangerous to eat.

Follow the recommendations below if you discover food in your freezer has thawed:

– Ice crystals still visible – food may be refrozen but should be stored for a shorter period than recommended.

– Thawed but refrigerator cold – refreezing generally not recommended. Fruits and some cooked food can be refrozen but use as soon as possible. Meat, fish, poultry – use immediately or cook then refreeze. Vegetables – discard as they usually go limp and soggy.

– Thawed and warmer than 5°C – discard all food.

MOVING AND STORING YOUR APPLIANCE

● ●

● ●

● ●

If your refrigerator is turned off for any reason, wait 10 minutes before turning it back on. This will allow the refrigeration system pressures to equalise before restarting.

Moving your appliance

Turn off the appliance and unplug from the power point. Remove all food.

Ease the appliance out of its position. Tuck the power cord away, if applicable tape the shelves in place and tape the doors closed. If the cabinet needs to be placed at an angle or laid down, carefully lay it on its side (the right-hand side when viewed from the front).

Relocate and install. If the appliance has been left on its side for any length of time, leave it standing upright as long as possible (at least a few hours) before turning it on.

● ●

● ●

Storing your appliance

When storing your cleaned appliance, leave the door(s) open. This allows air to circulate and prevents the build up of bacteria and moulds.

Before using again, clean well using a mixture of warm water and baking soda (add 1 tsp of baking soda to each 500 ml of water). Rinse with clean water.

Holiday time

We recommend you leave your refrigerator operating while you are on holiday.

First use of the ice maker/water dispenser

Check your refrigerator is switched on and has been cooling for at least 2 hours before use (refer to page 21 – The temperature of your refrigerator and freezer).

Check that the water isolation tap has been connected and turned on.

Press dispenser pad and discard the first 3 L of water, stopping intermittently to remove trapped air in the system. Failure to do this will result in excessive dripping from your dispenser. This will make sure that the pipes are cleared. If in doubt, keep re-using the dispenser until the water runs clear.

Please discard the first few batches of ice after start up.

Note: the first time the water dispenser is used, there will be a 1 – 2 minute delay while the tank fills, before water is dispensed.

Storing ice for extended periods

Storing ice for long periods of time can affect its appearance and odour. We recommend that you dispose of any ice which has been stored for extended periods and remove and clean the icebox. Allow the ice box to dry thoroughly and cool down before replacing it back into the appliance to prevent ice from sticking to the bin.

Water filter

The Filter icon on the control panel will appear when the filter needs replacing.

To maintain water quality we recommend the water filter be replaced every 6 months.

Replace the water filter as per manufacturer’s instructions or follow instructions below.

After changing, press the Function button for 3 seconds, the Filter icon will disappear and the filter timer will reset.

Replacement cartridges are available from your Fisher & Paykel Service Agent

(Kemflo Aicro filter part number 0060823485).

To replace the water filter

Turn off the water supply.

Remove the locking key at one end of the filter and then disconnect the water tube.

Repeat on the other end of the filter.

To fit the new filter insert the water tube at the inlet end of the filter, secure with locking clip and flush 19 L (5 gal) of water through the filter. Note the flow direction on the filter

(see page 14). Check for leaks.

Turn off water supply and connect water tube to the outlet end of the filter, secure with locking clip.

IMPORTANT

To avoid serious illness or death, do not use water of unsafe or of unknown quality.

The water filter cartridge needs to be changed when the Filter icon appears on the interface panel or after 6 months of use.

If the water filtration system has been allowed to freeze, replace filter cartridge.

Filter replacement is the consumer’s responsibility and will not be covered by the

Manufacturer’s Warranty except in the case of faulty parts or materials within the filter cartridge.

If the water has not been dispensed for some time or has an unpleasant taste or odour, flush 10 L of water through the system. If unpleasant taste or odour persists, fit a new filter cartridge.

The volume of the icebox equals the quantity of ice cubes, which the appliance can make in one day. Occasionally a small number of ice cubes may remain inside the box. If the ice gets stuck, this will result in abnormal operation of the ice cube maker.

To avoid this problem, remove the icebox and rearrange the ice cubes, and remove the ice cubes which cannot be separated.

You may hear ice being dropped into the storage compartment. This is normal.

IMPORTANT!

Always keep the ice cube outlet clean and clear of obstructions.

Turning the ice maker off and removing the icebox enables extra space for food storage. Install the additional door shelf at the position above the inlet on the freezer door (Fig. 12).

Avoid contact with the moving parts of the ice maker and do not place your fingers on the automatic ice making mechanism while the refrigerator is in operation.

Do not use ice cubes which have become discoloured, usually appearing a greenishblue. If discolouration is observed, contact

Fisher & Paykel Customer Care to arrange a service visit.

Ensure the ice maker is connected to the filter and to a potable water supply.

Installation of the water connection must be completed by a Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician or qualified plumber.

SPECIAL FEATURES

Fruit and vegetable bins

The fruit and vegetable bin provides a humid environment for your produce ensuring moisture and nutrients are retained, and your fruit and vegetables are kept fresher for longer.

To remove the bin, pull it out until it stops, then lift and continue to slide the bin until it is fully extended.

Fruit and vegetable bin humidity slide

The bin has a humidity control slide that can be adjusted to the fruit or vegetable setting depending on what is being stored in the bins.

Humidity Control graphic

CLEANING CARE – EXTERIOR

● ●

● ●

● ●

Exterior

Stainless exterior doors

It is important when cleaning the exterior door surface of your refrigerator, to only use liquid dishwashing detergent dissolved in warm water and a soft cloth.

Dry the door with a clean, lint free cloth.

The use of any abrasive or stainless steel cleaners and solvents will damage the door surface.

● ●

● ●

Other exterior surfaces

Clean all other exterior surfaces with a mix of warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent, and a soft cloth.

If necessary, clean the magnetic door gasket and the centre door gaskets with an old toothbrush, warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent.

Water dispenser pad (Ice & Water models only)

Clean the dispenser pad and drip tray with a mixture of warm water and a mild detergent. Dry thoroughly.

CLEANING CARE – INTERIOR

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

Interior

It is important to keep the interior of the refrigerator and freezer clean to help prevent food from becoming contaminated during storage.

The amount and types of food stored determines how often cleaning should be carried out (ideally once every 1 to 2 weeks) in the refrigerator.

Remove the shelves, door shelves and bins and rinse these parts in a mixture of warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent. Rinse and dry the shelves and bins thoroughly before replacing them into the refrigerator.

Wipe over the interior surfaces with a mixture of warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent or baking soda dissolved in warm water (add 1 tsp of baking soda to each

500 mls of water). Rinse with clean water.

To help remove “old stale refrigerator” smells add a few drops of vanilla essence or vinegar to the water before cleaning.

Do not use harsh, abrasive cloths or cleaners or highly perfumed, strong smelling cleaners or solvents on any part of the refrigerator as they can cause damage.

Glass shelves

Clean with warm water and detergent or a glass cleaner. If cleaning the shelves without removing from the cabinet, use only warm water and detergent as a glass cleaner can damage the plastic components of your refrigerator.

To remove the shelf, tilt the front upwards so that the restraining pegs are clear of the side guides and pull towards you. Keep the shelf tilted to allow the retaining stops to clear the side guides.

Shelf

When repositioning, make sure the shelf is pushed back fully and the retaining stops have located securely.

Shelf runner

IMPORTANT!

When adjusting the height of a shelf, first remove any food placed on the shelf.

STORING FOOD IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR

Your refrigerator helps to extend the storage times of fresh perishable foods. The cold temperature slows down the major causes of food spoilage – namely, the growth of bacteria, moulds and yeasts, and any chemical and physical reactions.

Fresh food care

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

The quality of food before it is placed in the refrigerator is critical to successful storage.

For best results:

Select foods that are very fresh and of high quality.

Buy only the amount that you will use within the recommended storage time. If you buy extra, plan to freeze it.

Ensure that food is well wrapped or covered before it is stored. This will prevent food from dehydrating, deteriorating in colour or losing flavour and will help maintain freshness. It will also prevent odour transfer. Fruit and vegetables need not be wrapped provided they are stored in the vegetable bins of the refrigerator.

Make sure that strong smelling foods are wrapped or covered and stored away from foods such as butter, milk and cream which can be easily tainted by strong odours.

Refrigerate fresh, perishable foods as soon as possible after purchase. If left at room temperature for any length of time the rate of deterioration will be accelerated.

Avoid placing food directly in front of air outlets, as it may freeze and cold air needs to circulate to maintain safe food storage.

Do not open the refrigerator door unnecessarily.

Cool hot foods down before placing them in the refrigerator. This should be done quickly. It can be aided by placing the container of food in a bowl of ice and water; renew the ice as necessary. (Note hot containers may damage shelves and walls of the refrigerator).

Store raw and cooked food in separate containers or packaging to prevent cross contamination.

● ●

● ●

In addition:

Keep the refrigerator clean. Wipe the inside walls and shelves frequently (refer to

‘Cleaning Care’) and place only clean containers in the refrigerator.

Keep a close check on the quality of food in your refrigerator. Discard any food that shows signs of spoilage. Pay particular attention to meat, fish and poultry, as these foods are highly perishable. Use food within the recommended storage times.

Dairy foods and eggs

● ●

● ●

● ●

Most pre-packed dairy foods have a recommended ‘use by/best before/best by’ date stamped on them. Store them in the refrigerator and use within the recommended time.

Butter can become easily tainted by strong smelling foods so it is best stored in a sealed container.

Eggs should be stored in the refrigerator. For best results, especially when baking, remove the eggs from the refrigerator two hours before they are to be used.

30

STORING FOOD IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR

● ●

● ●

● ●

Red meat

Place fresh red meat on a plate and loosely cover with waxed paper, plastic wrap or foil.

Store cooked and raw meat on separate plates. This will prevent any juices lost from the raw meat contaminating the cooked product.

Delicatessen meats should be used within the recommended storage time.

● ●

● ●

● ●

Poultry

Fresh whole birds should be rinsed inside and out with cold running water. Dry and place on a plate. Cover loosely with plastic wrap or foil.

Poultry pieces should also be stored this way. Whole poultry should never be stuffed until just before cooking, otherwise food poisoning may result.

Cool and refrigerate cooked poultry quickly. Remove stuffing from poultry and store separately.

● ●

● ●

● ●

Fish and seafood

Whole fish and fillets should be used on the day of purchase. Until required, refrigerate on a plate loosely covered with plastic wrap, waxed paper or foil.

If storing overnight or longer, take particular care to select very fresh fish. Whole fish should be rinsed in cold water to remove loose scales and dirt and then patted dry with paper towels. Place whole fish or fillets in a sealed plastic bag.

Keep shellfish chilled at all times. Use within 1 – 2 days.

● ●

● ●

● ●

Precooked foods and leftovers

These should be stored in suitable covered containers so that the food will not dry out.

Keep for only 1 – 2 days.

Reheat leftovers only once and until steaming hot.

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

Fruit and vegetable bins

Although most fruit and vegetables keep best at low temperatures, take care not to store the following at temperatures less than 7°C for long periods: Citrus fruit, tropical fruit, tomatoes, cucumbers.

Undesirable changes will occur at low temperatures such as softening of the flesh, browning, accelerated decaying and/or loss of flavour.

Do not refrigerate avocados (until they are ripe), bananas, mangoes or pepinos.

If possible store fruit and vegetables separately, ie fruit in one bin and vegetables in the other.

Each fruit and vegetable bin has a humidity control slide that can be adjusted depending on what is stored in the bins. For more information on using the Humidity

Control refer to page 27.

STORING FOOD IN YOUR FREEZER

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

We recommend the use of temperatures -18°C or colder to store food. This means that the food can be kept for longer periods than when refrigeration temperatures are used.

This is because the growth of bacteria, moulds and yeasts are stopped, and chemical and physical reactions are severely restricted at such low temperatures.

Frozen food care

For best results:

Choose only high quality foods that freeze well.

For best results store at -18°C or colder. Take care to maintain this low storage temperature, eg try to avoid opening the freezer door unnecessarily. If your ice cream is soft you are running your freezer too warm.

Leave space at the top of containers, glass jars or plastic bags containing liquids or semi-solid foods. These expand as they freeze. Usually 20 – 50 mm head space is recommended. Seal. Ideally, remove all the air from the package after food is frozen.

Packages or containers of solid foods should have the air removed from them and be sealed tightly before freezing.

Use the Fast Freeze function when freezing fresh food. This helps to speed up the freezing process, giving optimum freezing results. It is recommended that the function is activated approximately 2 hours before required. For more information refer to page 24.

Freeze immediately or as quickly as possible. Freeze only small quantities of food at any one time. For best results we recommend that only 1 kg of food be frozen per 25 L of freezer storage volume at any one time. (About 3 kg in small freezers and 4 kg in larger freezers). For faster freezing, we recommend that fresh food is placed at the top of the freezer compartment close to the air vent.

Thaw foods preferably in a refrigerator, or using a microwave oven or multifunction oven.

Keep a constant turnover of food. Use older items of food first and do not exceed recommended storage times.

Use good quality freezer proof packaging to maintain food quality.

If food is only covered in plastic film place inside a freezer-proof plastic bag.

● ●

Meat, poultry and game

Do not try to freeze more than 1 kg meat per 25 L of freezer storage volume at any one time. Meat must be frozen quickly in order to maintain its texture.

Do not stuff poultry before freezing.

Red meat can be cooked from frozen, or from the partly or completely thawed states.

Remember to allow extra cooking time if cooking from frozen.

Always thaw poultry completely before cooking.

Fish

● ●

● ●

● ●

Fish is best frozen commercially. If, however, you do want to freeze fish at home, make sure the fish is very fresh and of high quality.

Clean, scale and preferably leave whole. All fish should be wrapped in two layers of packaging as depending on the type of fish, odours and flavours can be readily transferred either to or from it. Seal well.

For best results, cook from either the frozen or partly thawed state.

Fruit

● ●

● ●

● ●

Choose high quality, mature, and ready to eat fruit. Preferably select varieties recommended for freezing.

Avoid unripe and over-ripe fruit.

The way fruit is packed depends on how it is to be used. Fruits packed in syrup are ideal for desserts, whereas fruits packed without sugar are better used for cooking. Most fruits can be stored for 8 – 12 months.

Vegetables

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

● ●

Most vegetables freeze well, although ‘salad’ vegetables lose their crispness. Other vegetables, eg celery, onion and tomatoes, should only be used in cooked dishes as they soften on freezing.

Freeze only high quality, mature, ready-to-eat vegetables.

Sort and discard any vegetables that are damaged.

It is necessary to blanch most raw vegetables prior to freezing.

Blanching involves a short cooking period during which vegetable enzymes are destroyed. If these enzymes are not destroyed they cause undesirable physical and chemical changes during freezer storage.

Vegetables can be blanched in boiling water, steam or microwave oven. If using boiling water, boil vegetables for 2 – 4 minutes and cool quickly.

In general, frozen vegetables are best cooked from their frozen state.

Prepared and cooked foods

● ●

Most cooked foods can be frozen but it is not recommended to freeze the following:

Cooked egg white, custards, cream fillings and milk puddings, gelatine or jelly-like dishes, mayonnaise and similar salad dressings, meringue toppings. These tend to separate on thawing.
