8. CARE AND CLEANING

CAUTION!
Unplug the appliance before car-
rying out any maintenance oper-
ation.
This appliance contains hydrocar-
bons in its cooling unit; mainte-
nance and recharging must
therefore only be carried out by
authorized technicians.
8.1 Periodic cleaning
1.
Switch off the appliance.
2.
Disconnect the mains plug from the
mains socket.
3.
Regularly clean the appliance and
the accessories with warm water and
neutral soap. Clean the lid seal care-
fully.
4.
Fully dry the appliance.
5.
Connect the mains plug to the mains
socket.
6.
Switch on the appliance.
CAUTION!
Do not use detergents, abrasive
products, highly perfumed clean-
ing products or wax polishes to
clean the inner side of the appli-
ance.
Prevent damage to the cooling
system.
There is no need to clean the
compressor area.
Many proprietary kitchen surface clean-
ers contain chemicals that can attack/
damage the plastics used in this appli-
ance. For this reason it is recommended
that the outer casing of this appliance is
only cleaned with warm water with a little
washing-up liquid added.
8.2 Defrosting the freezer
Defrost the freezer when the frost layer
reaches a thickness of about 10-15 mm.
The best time to defrost the freezer
when it contains no or only a little food.
To remove the frost, do these steps:
1.
Switch off the appliance.
2.
Remove any stored food, wrap it in
several layers of newspaper and put
it in a cool place.
3.
Leave the lid open , remove the plug
from the defrost water drain and col-
lect all defrost water on a tray. Use a
scraper to remove ice quickly.
4.
When defrosting is completed, dry
the interior thoroughly and refit the
plug.
5.
Switch on the appliance.
6.
Set the temperature regulator to ob-
tain the maximum coldness and run
the appliance for two or three hours
using this setting.
7.
Reload the previously removed food
into the compartment.
Never use sharp metal tools to
scrape off frost as you could
damage the appliance. Do not
use a mechanical device or any
artificial means to speed up the
thawing process other than those
recommended by the manufac-
turer. A temperature rise of the
frozen food packs, during de-
frosting, may shorten their safe
storage life.
The amount of frost on the walls
of the appliance will be increased
by the high level of the outer en-
vironment humidity and if the
frozen food is not wrapped prop-
erly.
8.3 Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for
long periods, take the following precau-
tions:
1.
Switch off the appliance.
2.
Disconnect the mains plug from the
mains socket.
3.
Remove all food.
4.
Defrost and clean the appliance and
all accessories.
5.
Leave the lid open to prevent un-
pleasant smells.
