ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

Before you insert the plug into the wall socket make sure that the voltage and the frequency shown in the rating plate inside the appliance corresponds to your electricity supply.

Rating label is on the left hand side of fridge inner liner.

We recommend that this appliance be connected to the mains supply via a suitable switched and fused socket. The appliance must be positioned so that the plug is accessible.

Should the mains lead of the appliance become damaged or should it need replacing at any time, it must be replaced by a special purpose made mains lead which can only be obtained from a BEKO Authorised Service Agent.

WARNING! THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED

If the fitted moulded plug is not suitable for your socket, then the plug should be cut off and an appropriate plug fitted. Destroy the old plug which is cut off as a plug with bared cord could cause a shock hazard if inserted into a socket elsewhere in the house.

The moulded plug on this appliance incorporates a 13 A fuse. Should the fuse need to be replaced an ASTABEAB approved BS 1362 fuse of the same rating must be used. Do not forget to refit the fuse cover. In the event of losing the fuse cover the plug must not be used until a replacement fuse cover has been fitted. Colour of the replacement fuse cover must be the same colour as that visible on the pin face of the plug. Fuse covers are available from any good electrical store.

IMPORTANT! FITTING A DIFFERENT PLUG

As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug proceed as follows:

(See diagram).

1.Connect the green-yellowor green (Earth) wire to the terminal in the plug marked 'E' or with

the symbol or coloured green and yellow or green.

2.Connect the blue (Neutral) wire to the terminal in the plug marked 'N' or coloured black.

TRANSPORTATION INSTRUCTIONS

1.The appliance should be transported only in a vertical upright position. The packing as supplied must be intact during transportation.

2.If during the course of transport the appliance has to be transported horizontally, it must only be laid on its left hand side when standing in the front of the appliance. After bringing it to upright position,it must not be operated for at least 4 hours to allow the system to settle.

3.Failure to comply with the above instructions could result in damage occuring to the appliance. The manufacturer will not be held responsible if these instructions are disregarded.

4.The appliance must be protected against rain, moisture and other atmospheric influences.

5.When positioning your appliance take care not to damage your flooring, pipes, wall coverings etc. Do not move the appliance by pulling by the door or handle.

6.Empty any water in the drain tray before moving. See section ‘Care & cleaning’ for further information.

7.Make sure that the defrost water pipe at the back of the product is fixed to the plastic evaporating pan on the right hand side of the compressor, to avoid defrost water spillage on the floor.

Do not attempt to sit or stand on top of your appliance as it is not designed for such use. You could injure yourself or damage the appliance.

"IMPORTANT: Make sure that mains cable is not caught under the appliance during and after carrying / moving the appliance, to avoid the mains cable becoming cut or damaged."

IMPORTANT

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

1.The space in the room where the appliance is installed must not be smaller than 10 cubic metres.

2.Do not put your fridge freezer in a cold room where the temperature is likely to go below +5 degrees C (41 degrees F) during night time and/or especially in winter.

This fridge freezer has been designed to operate in ambient temperatures between +5 and +43 degrees C (41 and 109 degrees F) Therefore if the appliance is installed in an unheated/cold room (eg: conservatory/annex/ shed/garage etc) then the appliance will not operate causing the freezer compartment to run warmer and as a result the storage time of frozen food may be reduced.

3.Do not place the appliance near cookers, radiators or in direct sunlight as this will cause your appliance to work harder. If installed next to a source of heat or freezer, maintain the following minimum side clearances:

From Cookers

50 mm (2")

 

 

From Radiators

300 mm (12")

 

 

From Freezers

25 mm (1")

 

 

From Wall

50 mm (2")

4.Adjustable feet adjustment for levelling

If your refrigerator is not level, you can level it by turning the front feet as illustrated in the figure below. The corner where the feet is lowered when you turn in the direction of black arrow and raised when you turn in the opposite direction. You may need somebody to help you to slightly lift the refrigerator off the floor for a few centimeters. Take care when lifting the appliance because it is very heavy.

5. Door height adjustment

If there is a misalignment between the doors, perform the steps indicated below to adjust door heights:

Doors can be raised vertically. This process can be performed easily using a cross section screwdriver and an allen key as illustrated in the following figures. Door racks should be removed when adjusting the door height.

• Remove the screws fastening the lower cover using a cross section screwdriver in the order shown in the figure.

STARTING

Final Check

Before you start using the fridge/freezer check that:

1.The feet have been adjusted so that the product is level.

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-frostfree appliances. This is quite normal and is not a fault.”

6.Front edges of the cabinet may feel warm. This is normal. These areas are designed to be warm to avoid condensation.

7."Do not load the appliance immediately it is switched on. Wait until the correct storage temperature has been reached. (See page 20)

8.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.

9.Avoid spillage of food particularly small items like rice, peas, beans through the fan guard and air flow vents as they may cause the cooling system to block and therefore operate less efficiently.

10.The factory set temperature is +4°C for fridge compartment and -18°Cfor freezer compartment.

11.The compressor will start running approximately 5 minutes after the refrigerator is plugged in to protect the electronic components of your appliance. After start up of the compressor, compartment temperatures will reach the set temperatures in 24 hours depending on the ambient temperature and load in your refrigerator.

12.Pay attention to the following points during the first 24 hours of the operation:

-Do not open the doors frequently.

-Do not overload your refrigerator.

-Do not put hot food.

STORING FRESH FOOD

Meat & poultryBest stored in the Chiller Compartment (See page 13)

Wrap raw meat and poultry loosely in polythene bags or aluminium foil. This prevents drying.

Wrap fish and offal in polythene bags.

Dairy Products

Wrap cheese firstly in greaseproof paper and then in polythene bag excluding as much air as possible. For best results take out of the fridge compartment an hour before eating.

Wrap bread well to keep it fresh.

Fruit & vegetables

Take off any unusable leaves on vegetables and wipe off any soil.

Leave lettuce, cabbage, parsley and cauliflower on the stem.

Wrap pineapples, melons, cucumbers, tomatoes and similar produce in polythene bags as these types of produce may suffer damage if kept at very low temperatures.

Wrap food, which has a strong odour, or can dry out, in polythene bags, aluminium foil, or place in an airtight container.

FRIDGE COMPARTMENT STORAGE ADVICE

Fruit & vegetables

Don’t store bananas.

Don’t store melon - it can be chilled for short periods as long as it is wrapped to avoid it flavouring other food.

Wrap food affected by temperatures near 0°C (pineapples, cucumbers, tomatoes etc.) in polythene bags.

Meat & poultry

Store raw meat and poultry below cooked food and dairy products.

Do not allow raw meat to come into contact with cooked food to avoid contamination. For safety, only store raw meat for two to three days in the Chiller Compartment.

General

Cooked dishes must be stored in airtight covered containers.

Don’t store cooked and fresh food together in the same container.

Always allow hot food and beverages to cool first.

Leftover canned food should not be stored in the can.

Place chilled cooked food and similar food near the rear of the fridge where it is coldest.

Keep food for as short a time as possible and adhere to ‘best before’ and ‘use by’ dates.

Don’t let defrosting food or food juices drip onto other food.

For AS920 Model only with Stored Water Dispenser:

Do not fill water tank with any liquid other than drinking water; beverages such as fruit juice, carbonated fizzy soda drinks, alcoholic drinks are not suitable for use with water dispenser. If such liquids are used, water dispenser will malfunction and may be damaged beyond repair. Guarantee does not cover such uses. Some chemical ingredients and additives in such drinks / beverages may also attack and damage water tank material.

Only use clean pure drinking water.

STORING PRE-FROZENFOOD- See also page 22

Take special care not to mix with fresh food.

The recommendation for storage as stated on the food packaging must always be followed.

Pre-packedfrozen food should be stored in accordance with the food manufacturer’s instructions for afrozen food storage compartment.

To ensure that the high quality achieved by the food manufacturer and retailer is maintained: 1 Wrap packets when you buy them.

2 Put packets in the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase. 3 Ensure that contents are labelled and dated.

4 Do not exceed ‘use by’ and ‘best before’ dates.

FREEZING FRESH FOOD - See also page 22

Take special care not to mix with already frozen food.

Always choose high quality fresh food and be sure it is thoroughly clean.

You can place food to be frozen in any compartment in the freezer.

Amounts

Prepare fresh food in small portions to ensure rapid freezing. Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time. The quality is best preserved when the food is frozen right through to the core as quickly as possible.

Do not exceed the freezing capacity which in a 24 hour period is 13 kg.

When freezing the maximum amount press the Fast Freeze button.

When freezing small amounts, i.e. 2 kg (5lbs) there is no need to press the Fast Freeze button.

Preparation

Wrap food in aluminium foil or freezer quality polythene bags.

Wrap fish and offal in polythene bags.

Wrap food which has a strong odour or can dry out, in polythene bags, aluminium foil, or place in airtight containers.

Make sure all air is excluded from foil wrapping or bags.

Freezer compartment storage info/advice

Do not leave frozen food at room temperature to thaw; the best way to defrost food is to put it in the fridge to thaw slowly. Make sure you avoid defrosting food or food juices drip onto other food.

The freezer compartment is rated and suitable for the freezing and storage ofpre-frozenfood.

Don’t freeze filled bottles or sealed cans containing fizzy (carbonated) drinks as they may burst.

Check contents of the freezer every so often.

Don’t close the freezer door before placing the drawers in place.

Don’t try to keep frozen food which has thawed, it should be eaten within 24 hours or cooked and re-frozen.

If there is a power failure do not open the door. Frozen food should not be affected if the failure lasts for less than 8 hours. If the failure is longer, then the food should be checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then re-frozen.

Placing warm food into the freezer compartment causes the compressor to operate continuously until the food is frozen solid. This can temporarily lead to excessive cooling of the refrigeration compartment.

Serving

Don’t remove items from the freezer with wet hands.

Don’t give children ice cream and water ices direct from the freezer. The low temperature may cause ‘freezer burns’ on lips.

Defrost food from the freezer in the fridge compartment.

Products such as flavoured water ices should not be consumed too cold.

Fill ice cube trays 2/3 with water and place them in the freezer. To dispense the ice cubes, twist the tray as shown. Store ice cubes in the tray underneath.

Warning! Do not fill ice cube storage tray with water.

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.

Chiller Compartment

Crisper or Chiller (0°C i. e. zero degree centigrade compartment (1)

The drawer at the bottom of the fridge compartment can be converted into a salad crisper or a Chiller Compartment.

The Chiller Compartment will keep the temperature below the temperature in the fridge compartment around 0°C and so, meat or fish can be kept fresher for longer.

Chiller Compartment is also ideal for the storage of ready cooked chilled food.

Important:

Vegetables and fruits may freeze if the adjustment slider (2) is kept at Chiller Compartment position. Therefore, check the position of the slider (2) before storing food.

In ambient temperatures at 10°C or lower, green leaf vegetables and other easily frozen salad should be removed from this compartment

(1) and placed into the upper crisper compartment. (3)

Do not swap the position of these drawers and make sure that the position adjustment slider is set at the desired position i.e. salad crisper or Chiller Compartment.

In ambient temperatures above 28°C, if the compartment (1) is required to be colder, the adjustment slider (4) in the freezer can be converted to open position. Be sure the adjustment slider (4) in the freezer is in close position when the ambient temperature is below 28°C.

Sliding shelves can be pulled out to easily reach the food placed at the rear of the shelf.

Snack Tray - Supplied with AS920 Model Only

Snack tray can be used to store small items that you frequently use. Please take extra care not to damage the Snack Tray when you take it out of the fredge.

Stored Water Dispenser - Supplied with AS920 Model Only

Water dispenser is a very useful feature to obtain chilled water without opening the door of your fridge. Since you do not have to open the door of your fridge frequently, you also save on electricity.

Using the water dispenser

Push in the lever of the water dispenser with your glass. By releasing the lever, you cut off the dispensing. When operating the water dispenser, maximum flow is achieved by fully depressing the lever. Please note, how much water flows from the dispenser depends on how far you depress the lever. As the level of water in your cup / glass rises, gently reduce the amount of pressure on the lever to avoid overflow. If you depress the lever a small amount, then water will trickle; this is perfectly normal and is not a fault.

Filling in the water tank of water dispenser

Open the cap of the water tank as illustrated in the figure.

Fill in with pure and clean drinking water. Close the cap.

To avoid accidental water dispensing, we recommend you

Water Tank Capacity 2.2 Litres

to lock the water dispenser. [See Page 16]

 

Caution!

• Do not fill water tank with any liquid other than drinking water; beverages such as fruit juice, carbonated fizzy soda drinks, alcoholic drinks are not suitable for use with water dispenser. If such liquids are used, the water dispenser will malfunction and may be damaged beyond repair. The guarantee does not cover such uses. Some chemical ingredients and additives in such drinks / beverages may also attack and damage the water tank material.

Only use clean pure drinking water.

Capacity of water dispenser tank is 2.2 litres [3.8 pints], do not overfill.

Push the water dispenser lever with a rigid cup. If you are using a plastic disposable cup, then push the lever with your fingers from behind the cup.
