CLEANING AND CARE
** We recommend that you switch off the freezer at the socket outlet and pull out the
mains plug before cleaning.
** Never use any sharp abrasive instrument, soap, household cleaner, detergent
and wax polish for cleaning.
** Use luke warm water to clean the cabinet of the freezer and wipe it dry.
** Use a damp cloth wrung out in a solution of one teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
to one pint of water to clean the interior and wipe it dry.
** Excess deposit of ice should be removed on a regular basis using a plastic ice
scraper available from your local store. Large accumulation of ice will impair the
performance of the freezer.
** If the freezer is not going to be used for a long period of time switch it off, remove
all food, clean it and leave the lid ajar.
** Any dust that gathers on the condenser, which is located at the back of the
freezer, should be removed once a year with a vacuum cleaner.
** Check lid seals regularly to ensure they are clean and free from food particies.
