Operating temperatures are controlled by the thermostat knob (Item 5) and may be set at any position between 1 and 5 (the coldest position).

The average temperature inside the fridge should be around +5°C (+41°F). 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.


Final Check

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).


Your freezer is suitable for the long-termstorage of commercially frozen foods and also can be used to freeze and store fresh food.

If there is a power failure, do not open the door. Frozen food should not be affected if the failure lasts for less than 18 hrs. If the failure is longer, then the food should be checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then re-frozen.
