Operating temperatures are controlled by the thermostat knob (Item 5) and may be set
at any position between 1 and 5 (the coldest position).
The average temperature inside the fridge should be around +5° C (+41° F).
Therefore adjust the thermostat to obtain the desired temperature. Some sections of
the fridge may be cooler or warmer (such as salad crisper and top part of the cabinet)
which is quite normal. We recommend that you check the temperature periodically
with a thermometer to ensure that the cabinet is kept to this temperature. Frequent
door openings cause internal temperatures to rise, so it is advisable to close the door
as soon as possible after use.


Final Check
Before you start using the appliance 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. The interior is clean as recommended under "Cleaning and care."
4. The plug has been inserted into the wall socket and the electricity is switched on.
When the door is open the interior light will come on.
And note that:
5. You will hear a noise as the compressor starts up. The liquid and gases sealed
within the refrigeration system may also make some (noise), whether the compressor
is running or not. This is quite normal.
6. Slight undulation of the top of the cabinet is quite normal due to the manufacturing
process used; it is not a defect.
7. We recommend setting the thermostat knob midway and monitor the temperature to
ensure the appliance maintains desired storage temperatures (See section
Temperature Control and Adjustment).
8. Do not load the appliance immediately it is switched on. Wait until the correct
storage temperature has been reached. We recommend checking the temperature
with an accurate thermometer (see; Temperature Control and Adjustment).


Your freezer is suitable for the long-term storage of commercially frozen foods and
also can be used to freeze and store fresh food.
If there is a power failure, do not open the door. Frozen food should not be affected if
the failure lasts for less than 18 hrs. If the failure is longer, then the food should be
checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then re-frozen.
