Installation Instructions
1. If possible avoid placing the
appliance near cookers, radiators or in
direct sunlight as this will cause the
compressor to run for long periods.
If installed next to a source of heat
or refrigerator, maintain the following
minimum side clearances:
From Cookers 2” (50 mm)
From Radiators 12” (300 mm)
From Refrigerators or Larder Fridge
1” (25 mm)
2. No gap is required at sides and top.
See item 3 below to ensure a gap is
obtained at the rear of the appliance.
If a gap is available on side and top,
retain it if possible as it would improve
the air circulation around the appliance.
3. Fit the two plastic wall spacers
supplied with the appliance onto
the condenser at the back of the
refrigerator by rotating 1/4 turn (see
technology developed by Beko,down
to -15°C ambient temperature.
7. A special receptacle is supplied to
store the mains plug during transit.
The receptacle is fixed at the back of
the cabinet, on the right hand side of
the compressor. (See diagram) Gently
remove the plug from the receptacle.
Never pull the mains cord, you may
damage the appliance. In the case
of transportation, ensure you locate
the plug in the receptacle provided to
avoid transit damage.
4. The appliance should be located on
a smooth surface. The two front feet
can be adjusted as required. To ensure
that, your appliance is standing upright
adjust the two front feet by turning
clockwise or anti-clockwise, until the
product is in firm contact with the
floor. Correct adjustment of feet avoids
excessive vibration and noise.

4 Before operating
Final Check
Before you start using the fridge/
freezer check that:
1. The feet have been adjusted for
perfect levelling.
2. The interior is dry and air can
circulate freely at the rear.
3. Clean the interior as recommended
4. Insert the plug into the wall socket
and switch on the electricity supply.
Avoid accidental disconnection by
taping over the switch.
5. You will hear a noise as the
compressor starts up. The liquid
and gases sealed within the
refrigeration system may also
give rise to noise, whether the
compressor is running or not which
is quite normal.
6. If you are going to store already
frozen food you don’t need to change
the thermostat setting.
7. Slight undulation of the top of the
cabinet is quite normal due to the
manufacturing process used, so do
not worry, it is not a defect.
8. Front edges of the cabinet may feel
warm. This is normal. These areas
are designed to be warm to avoid
9. We recommend that you set
the thermostat at 3 and monitor
the temperature to ensure the
appliance maintains desired
storage temperatures (see
section Temperature Control
and Adjustment).
10. Do not load the appliance
immediately after it is switched
on. Wait until the correct storage
temperature has been reached.
We recommend that you check
the temperature with an accurate
thermometer (see; Temperature
Control and Adjustment).
Important Notes :
1. If there is a power failure do not
open the door. Frozen food should not
be affected if the failure lasts for less
than 10.5 hours. If the failure is longer,
then the food should be checked and
either eaten immediately or cooked
and then re-frozen.
2. If you find the freezer door difficult
to open just after you have closed
it, don’t worry. This is due to the
pressure difference which will equalise
and allow the door to open normally
after a few minutes.
3. Always wrap food using a suitable
packaging material before storing
in your appliance to avoid contact
with the appliance surface and food
remains for hygiene reasons.
5 Using your freezer
Remember you must take your
reading very quickly since the
thermometer temperature will rise very
rapidly after you remove it from the
Please remember each time the door
is opened cold air escapes and the
internal temperature rises. Therefore
never leave the door open and ensure
it is closed immediately after food is
put in or removed.
Operating temperatures are controlled
by the thermostat (see diagram)
located on the inner side wall of the
freezer compartment. Settings may
be made from 1, 2 ... fast freeze, fast
freeze being the coldest position.
When the appliance is switched on for
the first time, the thermostat should
be adjusted so that after 24 hours,
the average freezer temperature
is no higher than -18°C (0°F). We
recommend you set the half way
between the 1 and 4 setting. Lower
temperatures may be obtained by
adjusting the setting towards fast
freeze position.
We recommend that you check
the temperature with an accurate
thermometer to ensure that the
storage compartments are kept to the
desired temperature.
Please observe the following
instructions to obtain the best results.
Do not freeze too large a quantity at
any one time. The quality of the food
is best preserved when it is frozen
right through to the core as quickly as
Do not exceed the freezing capacity of
your appliance in 24 h which is 10 kg
(22 lb)
Placing warm food into the freezer
compartment causes the refrigeration
compressor to operate continuously
until the food is frozen solid.
If you are going to freeze fresh food
in excess of 2kg. (4.5 lb) turn the
thermostat to the fast freeze position
a few hours before placing the fresh
food in the freezer.
Remember to turn the
thermostat back to its previous
position once food has frozen.
It is recommended to place fresh
food to be frozen in fast freeze
compartment of the freezer.
Take special care not to mix already
frozen food and fresh food.
Prepacked commercially frozen food
should be stored in accordance
with the frozen food manufacturer’s
instructions for a frozen food
storage compartment.
The freezing area is marked with
symbol on the door liner.
To ensure that the high quality
achieved by the frozen food
manufacturer and the food retailer is
maintained the following should be
1. Put packets in the freezer as quickly
as possible after purchase.
2. Do not exceed “Use By”, “Best
Before” dates on the packaging.
3. Please note that drawers, baskets,
flaps, trays are all removable.
Your appliance defrosts automatically.
The fan inside the freezer
compartment circulates cold air. Never
insert any object through the guard.
Do not allow children to play with the
freezer fan.
Never store products that contain
inflammable propellant gas
(eg dispensers, spray cans etc.) or
explosive substances.
Don’t cover the shelves with any
protective materials, which may
obstruct air circulation.
Do not allow children to play with the
appliance or tamper with the controls.
Do not obstruct the freezer fan guard
to ensure that you obtain the best
possible performance from your
Making ice cubes
Fill the ice-cube tray 3/4 full with water
and place it in the freezer.
As soon as the water has turned into
ice, you can take out the ice cubes.
Never use sharp objects such as
knives or forks to remove the ice
cubes. There is a risk of injury!
Let the ice cubes slightly thaw instead,
or put the bottom of the tray in hot
water for a short moment.
When you fast freeze , there may be
a short delay before the compressor
starts to operate. This is normal and
does not indicate a compressor fault.
