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 is connected to the mains supply via a suitable switched and fused socket in a readily accessible position.

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 ASTA 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.

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.

TRANSPORTATION INSTRUCTIONS

1.The appliance should be transported only in an 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 right 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 to the appliance, for which the manufacturer will not be held liable.

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 „Defrosting” and „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 top of the compressor, to avoid defrost water spillage on the floor.

Important!

Care must be taken while cleaning/carrying the appliance not to touch the bottom of the condenser metal wires at the back of the appliance, as this could cause injury to fingers and hands.

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.

Make sure that the mains cable is not caught under the appliance during and after moving, as this could damage the cable.

Do not allow children to play with the appliance or tamper with the controls. BEKO plc declines to accept any liability should the instructions not be followed.

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 +10 and +32 degrees C (50 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

2" (50 mm)

From Radiators

12" (300 mm)

From Refrigerators or Larder Fridge

1" (25 mm)

 

4

4.Make sure that sufficient room is provided around the appliance to ensure free air circulation.

Fit the two plastic wall spacer supplied with the appliance rotating 1/4 turn to the condenser at the back of the refrigerator (see diagram).

5.The fridge/freezer should be located on a smooth surface. The two front feet can be adjusted as required. To ensure that, your appliance is standing upright adjust the two front feet by turning clockwise or anti-clockwise,until the product is in

firm contact with the floor. Correct adjustment of feet avoids excessive vibration and noise.

6.Refer to cleaning and care section to prepare your appliance for use.

WARNING!

Do not connect your appliance to the electricity supply until all the packing and transit protectors have been removed including polystyrene block(s) inserted between the compressor motor and

the cabinet (see diagrams).

Do not remove the plastic drain tray fitted above the compressor motor on models with

auto - defrost fridge.

SUGGESTED ARRANGEMENT OF FOOD IN THE FRIDGE/FREEZER

Arrangement Examples (See diagram)

1.Baked, chilled cooked food, dairy products, cans.

2.Meat, sausages, cold cuts.

3.Fruit, vegetables, salads.

4.Making, storing ice cubes.

5.Frozen food and freezing of fresh food.

6.Frozen food.

7.Butter, cheese, eggs, small bottles, cans, tubes.

8.Tall, large bottles, beverages.

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 rated and suitable for the freezing and storage

of pre frozen food. The recommendation for storage 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 on the lowest shelf. Do not allow 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 should not be consumed too cold.

9.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.

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.
