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 of the cabinet.
3. Clean the interior as recommended under "CLEANING AND CARE."
4. Insert the plug into the wall socket and switch on the electricity supply.
• When the door is open the fridge interior light will come on.
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.
"Due to operation of the fan inside the frost free freezer compartment, overall noise
level is slightly higher in comparison to non-frost free appliances. This is quite normal
and is not a fault."
6. Set the thermostat knob half way between 1 and 5.
7. Front edges of the cabinet may feel warm. This is normal. These areas are designed to
be warm to avoid condensation.
8. "Do not load the appliance immediately 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)"
9. When the freezer reaches the desired temperature the freezer fan will stop. When the
freezer fan is on, the noise will be louder when the freezer door is opened.
10. Avoid spillage of food particularly small items like rice, peas, beans through the fan
guard as they may cause the cooling system to block and therefore operate less efficiently.
STORING FROZEN FOOD
Prepacked commercially frozen food should be stored in accordance with the
frozen food manufacturer's instructions for a
To ensure that the high quality achieved by the frozen food manufacturer and the
food retailer is maintained, the following should be remembered:
1. Put packets in the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase.
2. Ensure that contents are labelled and dated.
3. Do not exceed "Use By", "Best Before" dates on the packaging.
If there is a power failure do not open the door. Frozen food should not be
affected if the failure lasts for less than 13 hrs. If the failure is longer, then the
food should be checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then re-
frozen food storage
FREEZING FRESH FOOD
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 possible.
Do not exceed the freezing capacity of your appliance in 24 h which is 4 kg (8.8 lb)
Placing warm food into the freezer compartment causes the refrigeration compressor to
operate continuously until the food is frozen solid. This can temporarily lead to excessive
cooling of the refrigeration compartment.
When freezing fresh food turn the thermostat knob towards 5 Small quantities
of food up to 1/2 kg. (1 lb) can be frozen without having to rotate the temperature
You may place fresh food to be frozen in any part of the freezer.
Take special care not to mix already frozen food and fresh food.
MAKING ICE CUBES
Fill the ice - cube tray 3/4 full with water and place it in the Ice Bank. Loosen
frozen trays with the handle of a spoon, never use sharp edged objects
such as knives, forks. Store ice-cubes in the Ice Bank.
Note: If freshly made ice cubes are not consumed for several weeks and stored
in Ice Bank, they will slowly reduce in size and eventually disappear completely.
