HOW TO OBTAIN SERVICE
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:
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.
FITTED WITH BS 1362 13A FUSE ALWAYS FIT BS 1362 REPLACEMENT CARTRIDGE FUSE
3.Connect the brown (Live) wire to the terminal in the plug marked 'L'
or coloured red.
With alternative plugs a 13 A fuse must be fitted either in the plug or adaptor or in the main fuse box.
If in doubt contact a qualified electrician. 3
In order to operate the automatic ice maker/dispenser and chilled water dispenser, you will need to get your appliance plumbed into the cold mains water supply in your house via a standard 1/2 “ valve fitting. If in doubt contact a qualified plumber and your local water company. See page 9.
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.

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 +32 degrees C (41 and 90 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:
50 mm (2")
300 mm (12")
25 mm (1")
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 flat tipped screwdriver and an allen key (M6) 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 flat tipped screwdriver in the order shown in the figure.
