Fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
flavour.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
To operate the appliance proceed as follows:
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Position min = minimum coldness
Position max = maximum coldness
Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.
The intermediate position is usually the most
suitable.

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.
•
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean (refer to “Maintenance and Cleaning).
•
Never allow spillages to dry and harden.
•
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as
possible.
Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the
refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped
eggs.
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
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.
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).
•
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.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Should the interior light fail to work, first switch off
the appliance and disconnect from the electricity
supply, then replace the bulb as follows;
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water
and bicarbonate of soda (5ml to 0.5 litre of water).
Rinse and dry thoroughly.
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.
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.
Defrosting
The refrigerator automatically defrosts every time the
compressor stops. The water is discharged, via the
pipe, into a tray located at the back of the appliance
above the compressor, where it evaporates.
The following table shows which ambient temperature is
correct for each climate classification:
SN
+10°C to + 32°C
N
+16°C to + 32°C
ST
+18°C to + 38°C
T
+18°C to + 43°C
It should be located in a dry atmosphere, out of direct
sunlight and away from extreme temperature e.g. not next
to a boiler or radiator, or in a very cold room e.g. an
outhouse, where the temperatures may fall below 10°C
(50°F). If these temperatures are exceeded i.e. colder or
warmer, then the appliance may not operate correctly.
Important
When the appliance is not in use
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.
6
To avoid defrost water overflowing into the fridge,
periodically clean the water discharge hole in the centre
of the V shaped drip collector at the back of the
refrigerator compartment behind the fruit and vegetable
drawer. Use the defrost cleaner provided which you will
find already inserted into the discharge hole.
Remember to wash the defrost cleaner in hot soapy
water at regular intervals. Dry throughly before
replacing.

You should also ensure that air can circulate freely around
the back and the top of the cabinet. There must also be at
least 100 mm (4”) distance between the top of the cabinet
and any overhanging kitchen furniture (A). Ideally, the
appliance should not be positioned beneath overhanging
furniture (B).
There should also be a gap of 25 mm either side of the
appliance. Do not obstruct the space underneath. The
back of the cabinet may be placed close to the wall but
must not touch it. DO NOT install in places with restricted
ventilation.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Should the interior light fail to work, first switch off
the appliance and disconnect from the electricity
supply, then replace the bulb as follows;
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water
and bicarbonate of soda (5ml to 0.5 litre of water).
Rinse and dry thoroughly.
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.
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.
Defrosting
The refrigerator automatically defrosts every time the
compressor stops. The water is discharged, via the
pipe, into a tray located at the back of the appliance
above the compressor, where it evaporates.
The following table shows which ambient temperature is
correct for each climate classification:
SN
+10°C to + 32°C
N
+16°C to + 32°C
ST
+18°C to + 38°C
T
+18°C to + 43°C
It should be located in a dry atmosphere, out of direct
sunlight and away from extreme temperature e.g. not next
to a boiler or radiator, or in a very cold room e.g. an
outhouse, where the temperatures may fall below 10°C
(50°F). If these temperatures are exceeded i.e. colder or
warmer, then the appliance may not operate correctly.
Important
When the appliance is not in use
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.
