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.


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.


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.




















































































































22mm. RED









































































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.



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 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 occuring to the appliance. The manufacturer will not be held responsible if these instructions are disregarded.

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 to avoid touching the bottom of the condenser metal wires at the back of the appliance as you might injure your 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.

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")



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

Fit the Two plastic wall spacers supplied with the appliance rotating 1/4 turn to the condenser at the back of the appliance (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.

A special receptacle is supplied to store the mains plug during transit. The receptacle is fixed at the back of the

cabinet, on the side of the compressor. (See diagram) Gently remove the plug

from the receptacle. Never pull the mains cord, you may damage the appliance. In the case of transportation,

ensure you locate the plug in the receptacle provided to avoid transit damage.

Arrangement Examples (See diagram)




Baked, chilled cooked food,





dairy products, cans.



Meat, sausages, cold cuts.



Fruit, vegetables, salads.




Making, storing ice cubes.




Frozen food.





Frozen food and




freezing of fresh food.






Butter, cheese.




Small bottles, cans, tubes.







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 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 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.

10.Place chilled cooked food and similar food near the rear of the fridge inner liner where the cold wall is located.

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.


Operating temperatures are controlled by the thermostat knob (see diagram) located on the ceiling of fridge compartment. Settings may be made from 1 to 5, 5 being the coldest position.

When the appliance is switched on for the first time, the thermostat should be adjusted so that after 24 hours, the average fridge temperature is no higher than +5°C (+41°F). We recommend you set the thermostat half way between the 1 and 5 setting and monitor to obtain the desired temperature i. e. towards 5 you will obtain a colder fridge temperature and vice versa. Some sections of the fridge may be cooler or warmer ( such as the salad crisper and the top part of the cabinet ) which is quite normal.

The normal storage temperature of the freezer should be -18°C(0°F). Lower temperatures may be obtained by adjusting thermostat knob towards 5 position.

We recommend that you check the temperature with an accurate thermometer to ensure that the storage compartments are kept to the desired temperature. Remember you must take your reading very quickly since the thermometer temperature will rise very rapidly after you remove it from the freezer.

Please remember each time the door is opened cold air escapes and the internal temperature rises. Therefore never leave the door open and ensure it is closed immediately after food is put in or removed.

In case of a temporary ice build up in the fridge compartment, reduce the thermostat setting to 1, monitoring at the same time that the fridge temperature is maximum +5 degrees C [41 degrees F]. Once the ice build up disappears and the appliance starts auto defrosting again as normal, then you may increase the thermostat setting, if required.

When you set the thermostat knob to 0 [Zero] position, the appliance will be switched off.




Final Check

Before you start using the fridge/freezer check that:

1.The feet have been adjusted for perfect levelling.

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 fridge interior light will come on.

5.You will hear a 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 operation of the fan inside the frost free freezer compartment, overall noise level is slightly higher in comparison to non-frostfree appliances. This is quite normal and is not a fault.”

6.Set the thermostat knob half way between 1 and 5.

7.Front edges of the cabinet may feel warm. This is normal. These areas are designed to be warm to avoid condensation.

8."Do not load the appliance immediately it is switched on. Wait until the correct storage temperature has been reached. We recommend that you check the temperature with an accurate thermometer (see; Temperature Control and Adjustment)"

9.When the freezer reaches the desired temperature the freezer fan will stop. When the freezer fan is on, the noise will be louder when the freezer door is opened.

10.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.


Prepacked commercially frozen food should be stored in accordance with the frozen food manufacturer's instructions for a 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 door. Frozen food should not be affected if the failure lasts for less than 13 hrs. If the failure is longer, then the food should be checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then refrozen.



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 4 kg (8.8 lb)

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.

When freezing fresh food turn the thermostat knob towards 5 Small quantities

of food up to 1/2 kg. (1 lb) can be frozen without having to rotate the temperature control knob.

You may place fresh food to be frozen in any part of the freezer.

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


Fill the ice - cube tray 3/4 full with water and place it in the Ice Bank. Loosen frozen trays with the handle of a spoon, never use sharp edged objects

such as knives, forks. Store ice-cubesin the Ice Bank.

Note: If freshly made ice cubes are not consumed for several weeks and stored in Ice Bank, they will slowly reduce in size and eventually disappear completely.












The fridge compartment defrosts





automatically. The defrosting water runs






to the drain tube via a collection

Drain Tube




container at the back of the appliance (1).







(see diagram)






During defrosting water droplets may form









at the back of the fridge compartment





where concealed evaporator is located.





Some droplets may remain on the liner and





refreeze when defrosting is completed. Do





not use pointed or sharp edged objects such as knives, forks to remove the droplets which have frozen.

If at any time the defrost water does not drain from the collection channel, check to ensure that no food particles have blocked the drain tube. The drain tube can be cleared by pushing the special plastic plunger provided down the drain tube

(2). If the frost layer reaches about 1/4"(7 mm), reduce the setting (i.e. from 4 to 1) to restart automatic defrosting.


The freezer compartment defrosts automatically.


The fan inside the freezer compartment circulates cold air. Never insert any object through the guard. Do not allow children to play with

the freezer fan.

Never store products that contain inflammable propellant gas (eg dispensers, spray cans etc.) or explosive substances.

Don’t cover the shelves with any protective materials, which may obstruct air circulation.

Do not allow children to play with the appliance or tamper with the controls.

Do not obstruct the freezer fan guard to ensure that you obtain the best possible performance from your appliance.
