Suggested arrangement of food in the appliance
Guidelines for obtaining optimum storage and hygiene:
1.The fridge compartment is for the shortterm storage of fresh food and drinks.
2.The freezer compartment is rated and suitable for the freezing and storage of
packaging should be observed at all times. 3.•Hot meals should be cooled down to room temperature before putting into the refrigerator. •Food that you want to freeze should be fresh and in good quality.
•Food should be separated into portions according to the daily or meal needs.
•Even if food will be stored for a short period, food should be wrapped so that will not leak air to prevent driying. Packing materials should be resistant to cold, being torn, moisture, odor, oil and acid. And also should not let
4.Dairy products should be stored in the special compartment provided in the door liner.
5.Cooked dishes should be stored in airtight containers.
6.Fresh wrapped products can be kept on the shelf. Fresh fruit and vegetables should be cleaned and stored in the crisper bins.
7.Bottles can be kept in the door section.
8.To store raw meat, wrap in polythene bags and place on the zero temperature compartment. Do not allow to come into contact with cooked food, to avoid contamination. For safety, only store raw meat for two to three days.
9.For maximum efficiency, the removable shelves should not be covered with paper or other materials to allow free circulation of cool air.
10.Do not keep vegetable oil on door shelves. Keep the food packed, wrapped or covered. Allow hot food and beverages to cool before refrigerating. Leftover canned food should not be stored in the can.
11.Fizzy drinks should not be frozen and products such as flavoured water ices should not be consumed too cold.
12.Some fruit and vegetables suffer damage if kept at temperatures near 0 °C. Therefore wrap pineapples, melons, cucumbers, tomatoes and similar produce in polythene bags and store in vegetable crisper.
Instructions for use
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).
Temperature control and adjustment
•Internal temperature changes of the refrigerator which consists freezer compartment and refrigeration compartment can be adjusted by the thermostat adjustment knob on the illuminated panel.
Operating temperatures are controlled by the thermostat knob (Fig.
The average temperature inside the fridge should be around +5°C.
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.
•Refrigeration compartment temperature adjustment
The temperature of the refrigeration compartment depends on the amount of air coming from the freezer compartment. You can make the temperature adjustment of the refrigeration compartment by bringing the adjuster that is placed on the back wall of the refrigeration compartment between “1” and “5”positions.(Fig. 3)
Please note that the freezer compartment stops working if the thermostat knob is settled to “0” position.
•The temperature of freezer compartment is affected by environmental conditions and upper compartments.
•When the temperatures of the freezer and refrigeration compartments are adjusted to maximum, food stored just below the adjuster of the refrigeration compartment may freeze.
Instructions for use
Storing frozen food
Your freezer is suitable for the
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.
Placing warm food into the freezer compartment causes the refrigeration machine to operate continously until the food is frozen solid. This can temporarily lead to excessive cooling of the refrigeration compartment. When freezing fresh food, keep the thermostat knob at medium position. Small quantities of food up to 1/2 kg. (1 lb) can be frozen without adjusting the temperature control knob.
Take special care not to mix already frozen food and fresh food.
How to use the accessories
