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 +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:

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 flat tipped screwdriver and an allen key (M6) as illustrated in the following figures. Door racks should be removed when adjusting the door height.

BEFORE FIRST USE & OPERATION

Ice/Water Dispenser

The minimum inlet water pressure required is 1 bar

The maximum inlet water pressure allowed is 8 bars

The appliance must be connected to the cold mains water supply and must never be connected to the hot water.

•Make sure the anti-condensationswitch underneath the display is pressed after connecting the appliance to the cold mains water supply. (Factory setting is in pressed position)

You will need to wait for 12 hours before you get your first ice cubes from the ice dispenser. If there is less than 16 ice cubes in the ice cube container, ice dispenser may not operate.

The dispenser will not be activated if the freezer door is open. Therefore, please make sure that the freezer door is closed in order to allow the dispenser to start operating.

In order for the ice/water dispenser to operate smoothly, the water pressure in the system should be between 1 – 8 bars. To check this, see if 1 glass of water (100 cc) fills using the dispenser in 10 seconds.

Do not forget to take out the Ice Hole Cover before using the ice dispenser.

Water dispenser is automatically activated when the refrigerator starts operating. However it would take up to 12 hours for the water to chill.

Approximately the first 30 pieces of the ice cubes made and dispensed should not be consumed.

Water may not flow from the dispenser during the initial operation because of the air trapped in the piping system. Press the latch for about 1 minute three times at intervals to bleed the air trapped in the system. The uneven flow of the water from the dispenser will disappear as soon as the trapped air in the system is released.

The first 10 glasses of water should not be consumed.

Always make sure that you fit the water filter before using the ice/water dispenser.

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 respective interior light will come on.

5.You will hear 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 the operation of fans inside the appliance, 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 24)

8.When the compartments reach the desired temperatures fans 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.

SUGGESTIONS FOR STORING FRESH FOOD

Meat & poultryBest stored in the Chiller Compartment (See page 21)

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

Wrap fish and similar items in polythene bags to avoid drying and odour.

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, salads, cucumbers, tomatoes etc.) in polythene bags to avoid freezing.

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 in the Chiller Compartment.

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.

12

13

STORING PRE-FROZENFOOD- See also page 27

Take special care not to mix with fresh and thawed food.

The recommendation for (4 star means-18°Cor colder) 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 27

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

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

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.

When freezing the maximum amount press the Fresh Freeze button.

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

Preparation

Wrap food in aluminium foil or freezer quality polythene bags.

Wrap fish and similar items 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 to make sure items are not stored for too long.

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 fridge compartment.

Serving

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

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

Products such as flavoured ice lollies should not be consumed too cold for the same reason.

Defrost food from the freezer in the fridge compartment.

USING THE ACCESSORIES

Water/Ice Dispenser

With its three different functions, the dispenser efficiently meets your chilled cold water and ice cube needs without having to open the door of the refrigerator. It is a continuous cold water and ice source without manually adding water. User friendly control panel provides the following dispensing functions:

• Ice Cube

• Crushed Ice

• Chilled Water

Note:

Water or ice can be dispensed for a maximum of 60 seconds at each use.

When the freezer door is open, the dispenser will not work.

Using the Water Dispenser

Warnings

• It is normal for the first few glasses of water taken from the dispenser to be warm.

• In cases where the water dispenser has not been used frequently, sufficient amount of water must be drained from the dispenser to get fresh water.

Spillage Tray

Water drops that drip during use, accumulates in the spillage tray. Remove the spillage tray by pressing down in the right corner. You can remove the water with a sponge or a soft cloth.

16

17

Using the Ice Dispenser

Please note, first ice cubes will not be ready before 12 hours after switching on the appliance.

If you don’t require ice cubes - for example in winter or during holidays away from home, turn on “Ice off” function.

The ice maker produces approximately 120 pieces of ice cubes in 24 hours which can be dispensed as ice cubes or crushed ice. This amount may vary depending on certain conditions.

It is normal to get crushed ice from the dispenser in a longer time than in getting the ice cubes and also flowing of some crushed ice before the ice cubes drop if crushed ice option had been selected before selecting ice cube option. Furthermore, in cases when no ice was taken from the dispenser for a long time, any difference in the smell and taste of the ice as well as having smaller pieces is very normal. If this is the case, the ice in the icebank should be emptied and the icebank must be cleaned thoroughly.

Warnings

No ice should be added from outside to the icebank. This may adversely affect the ice supply or crushing the ice.

It is normal to have a couple of ice cubes stuck together in the icebank.

Moving parts such as blades in a housing at the ice outlet of the dispenser must not be touched to avoid injury.

Never use sharp objects to break the ice in the icebank. This may cause damage on the icebank.

Food stuff should never be placed into the icebank for quick cooling purposes.

If you see water droplets on the water dispenser or when you connect the appliance to the water system please make sure the anti-condensationswitch underneath tne display is pressed. (Factory setting is in pressed positionSee page 24)

Ice off

To stop ice formation, “ice off” button is pressed. When ice off is selected, no water will be taken into the Icematic. However, already existing ice can be taken from the dispenser. To restart ice formation, “ice off” button must be pressed again.

Warning: If you do not use the ice dispenser, do not forget to put ice hole cover in to the chanfer inside of the freezer door. (See page 15)

Cleaning the Ice Container and the Water Dispenser

Follow the procedure and warnings below to clean the Ice Container:

Press “Ice off” key before taking out the Ice Container.

Remove the Ice Container by lifting first and then pulling towards yourself as shown in the diagram.

Empty the ice in the Ice Container if any. To take out the stuck ice, use objects that are not sharp to avoid any damage on the Ice Container.

Pay attention that the inside of the Ice Container is not wet/damp before placing it back to its housing.

After placing the Ice Container back to its housing and closing the freezer door, if you want to get ice from the ice dispenser, exit from “ice off” mode by pressing the “ice off” key again.

Do not touch moving parts like the knife in the Ice bank

2. Pull

1. Lift

 

Humidity level control in the lower crisper/chiller compartment

19

Snack Tray

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 fridge and place it back in the fridge gently.

Active Ionizer

Bacteria

It is in the air channel of refrigerator back side of the crisper (3). With ionizing the air, airborne Ion bacteria and the bad smell originated from these bacteria will be reduced.

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.

SUGGESTED ARRANGEMENT OF FOOD IN THE FRIDGE/FREEZER

Arrangement Examples (See diagram)

1.Baked, chilled cooked food.

2.Wine and similar items.

3.Meat, sausages, cold cuts - You may also use Chiller Compartment (4-b)to store these items

4.Fruit, vegetables, salads. (4-a,4-b)

5.Fastest freezing compartment

6.Frozen food and freezing of fresh food.

7.Butter, cheese, eggs.

8.Small items

9.Tall bottles, beverages.

10.Dairy products, small packs.

The following guidelines and recommendations are suggested to obtain the best results and storage hygiene.

1.The fridge compartment is for the short term storage of fresh food and drinks.

2.The freezer compartment is (4 star) rated and is suitable for the freezing of fresh food and storage of pre frozen food. The recommendation forstorage as stated on the food packaging should be observed at all times.

3.Cooked dishes must be stored in airtight covered containers.

4.Fresh wrapped produce can be placed on the shelf. Fresh fruit and vegetables should be cleaned and stored in the crisper bins.

5.Bottles can be placed in the door section.

6.To store raw meat, wrap in polythene bags and place in the Chiller Compartment. Do not allow such items to come into contact with cooked food to avoid contamination. For safety, only store raw meat for two to three days.

7.Keep the food packed wrapped or covered. Allow hot food and beverages to cool before placing them in the fridge. Do not store explosive substances. High proof alcohol must be stored upright in sealed containers. Left over canned food should not be stored in the can.

8.Fizzy drinks should not be frozen and products such as flavoured water ices, ice lollies should not be consumed too cold.

9.Some fruit and vegetables suffer damage if kept at temperatures near 0°C for example in the Chiller Compartment.

Therefore wrap pineapples, melons, cucumbers, tomatoes and similar produce in polythene bags and never place them in the chiller compartment.

10.Place chilled cooked food and similar food in the Chiller Compartment.

11.Shelves, racks, crisper bins, drawers, flaps, bottle grippers are all removable.

12.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.

13.For hygiene reasons, always wrap food using a suitable packaging material before storing in your appliance to avoid contact with the appliance surface.

SUGGESTIONS FOR STORING FROZEN FOOD

Prepacked commercially frozen food should be stored in accordance with the frozen food manufacturer's instructions for a ( 4 star) frozen food storage compartment.

To ensure that the high quality achieved by the frozen food manufacturer and the food retailer is maintained, the following should be remembered:

1.Put packets in the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase.

2.Ensure that contents are labelled and dated.

3.Do not exceed "Use By", "Best Before" dates on the packaging.

If there is a power failure do not open the freezer door. Frozen food should not be affected if the failure lasts for less than 8 hrs. If the failure is longer, then the

food should be checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then refrozen.

• If you remove home freeze drawer and ice bank to increase the volume, section over the line shown in the figure below becomes two star section. Use this volume only for short-termstorage of food.

FREEZING FRESH FOOD

Please observe the following instructions to obtain the best results.

Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time. The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen right through to the core as quickly as possible.

Do not exceed the freezing capacity of your appliance in 24 h which is 13 kg.

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

You may place fresh food to be frozen in any part of the freezer, however we recommend fresh freeze compartment for fastest freezing.

Take special care not to mix already frozen food and fresh food.

DEFROSTING

The fridge and freezer compartments defrost automatically. 27

CLEANING AND CARE

**We recommend that you switch off the appliance 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 appliance 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.

**Make sure that no water enters the lamp housing and other electrical items.

**If the appliance is not going to be used for a long period of time switch it off, remove all food, clean it and leave the door ajar.

**Vacuum-cleanthe dusts on the appliance once a year.

**Check door seals regularly to ensure they are clean and free from food particles.

**Removal of door tray

To remove door racks, remove all the contents and then simply push the door rack upwards from the base.

**To remove a freezer drawer, pull it as far as possible, and then tilt it upwards, and then pull it out completely.

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

Protection of plastic surfaces

Do not put liquid oils or oil-cookedmeals in your refrigerator in unsealed containers as they damage the plastic surfaces of your refrigerator. In case of spilling or smearing oil on the plastic surfaces, clean and rinse the relevant part of the surface at once with warm water.

Specially Treated Doors

Genuine stainless steel doors have been specially treated to enhance and maintain the elegant appearance of the material. To ensure you can preserve and maintain this, we recommend that you regularly wipe the doors, in an up and down motion with a soft, dry and clean piece of kitchen roll. For further information, please contact Beko Customer Services.

REPLACING THE INTERIOR LIGHT BULB

Should the light fail to work, proceed as follows.

1.Switch off at the socket outlet and pull out the mains plug.

• Remove all shelves and drawers for easy access.

2.Use a flat tipped screwdriver to gently remove the light diffuser cover by inserting the blade to prise off each side. Take care not to damage the plastic cover and inner liner.

3.First check that the bulb hasn’t worked loose by ensuring it is screwed securely in the holder. Replace the plug and switch on. If the bulb works, replace the light cover by inserting the rear lug and pushing up to locate the front two lugs.

4.If the light still fails to work, switch off at the socket outlet and pull out the mains plug. Replace the bulb with a new 15 watt (max) screw cap (SES) bulb.

5.Carefully dispose of the burnt-outlight bulb immediately.

Replacement light bulb can easily be obtained from a good local electrical or DIY store.

KEY DO'S AND DON'TS

DoClean your appliance regularly (See "Cleaning and Care")

DoKeep raw meat and poultry below cooked food and dairy products. DoTake off any unusable leaves on vegetables and wipe off any soil. DoLeave lettuce, cabbage, parsley and cauliflower on the stem.

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

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

DoWrap fish and offal in polythene bags.

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

DoWrap bread well to keep it fresh.

DoChill white wines, beer, lager and mineral water before serving. DoCheck contents of the freezer every so often.

DoKeep food for as short a time as possible and adhere to "Best Before", "Use by" etc. dates.

DoStore commercially frozen food in accordance with the instructions given on the packets that you buy.

DoAlways choose high quality fresh food and be sure it is thoroughly clean before you freeze it.

DoPrepare fresh food for freezing in small portions to ensure rapid freezing. DoWrap all food in aluminium foil or freezer quality polythene bags and

make sure any air is excluded.

DoWrap frozen food when you buy it and put it in to the freezer as soon as possible.

DoDefrost food in the fridge compartment.

DoRemove ice cream from the freezer 10-20minutes before serving.

Don't- Store bananas in your fridge compartment.

Don't- Store melon in your fridge. It can be chilled for short periods as long as it is wrapped to avoid it flavouring other food.

Don't- Store poisonous or any dangerous substances in your appliance. It has been designed for the storage of edible foodstuffs only.

Don't- Consume food which has been stored for an excessive time in the fridge. Don't- Store cooked and fresh food together in the same container. They should

be packaged and stored separately.

Don't- Let defrosting food or food juices drip onto food.

Don't- Leave the door open for long periods as this will make the appliance more costly to run and cause excessive ice formation.

Don't- Put hot food into the appliance. Let it cool down first.

Don't- Put liquid-filledbottles or sealed cans containing carbonated liquids into the freezer as they may burst.

Don't- Exceed the maximum freezing loads (13 kg in any 24 hours) when freezing fresh food.

Don't- Give children ice-creamand water ices direct from the freezer. The low temperature may cause 'freezer burns' on lips.

Don't- Freeze fizzy drinks.

Don't- Try to keep frozen food which has thawed, it should be eaten within 24 hours or cooked and refrozen.

Don't- Remove items from the freezer with wet hands.

Don't- Close the freezer door before placing the compartment drawer in place. Don’t- 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.

ENERGY SAVING TIPS

1- Ensure your appliance is installed in a well ventilated area. If the ambient temperature is low (but in no case lower than 5 degrees C), then the energy

saving will be more.

2- Ensure the time between buying chilled/frozen food and placing them in your

appliance is kept at minimum, particularly in summer. We recommend you use a cool bag or a special carrier bag to carry frozen food.

3- Do not leave the door (s) of your appliance open longer than necessary and ensure they are closed properly after each opening.

4- Defrost frozen food in the fridge compartment, so that frozen food acts as an ice pack to assist cooling in the fridge.

PROBLEM SOLVING AND TROUBLE SHOOTING

If the appliance does not operate when switched on, check whether:

The plug is inserted properly in the socket and that the power supply is on. (To check the power supply to the socket, plug in another appliance)

The fuse has blown/circuit breaker has tripped/main distribution switch has been turned off.

The temperature control has been set correctly.

New plug is wired correctly if you have changed the fitted moulded plug.

If the appliance is still not operating after the above checks, please refer to the section on “How To Obtain Service”.

Please ensure that above checks have been made as a charge will be made if no fault is found.
