Electrical requirements

Before you insert the plug into the wall socket make sure that the voltage and the frequency shown in the rating label, which is on the left hand side of the fridge inner liner corresponds to your electricity supply.

We recommend that this appliance be connected to the mains supply via a suitable switched and fused socket. The appliance must be positioned so that the plug is accessible.

Should the mains lead of the appliance become damaged or need replacing at any time, it must be replaced by a special purpose made mains lead which can only be obtained from a Beko Authorized Service Agent.


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 a bared cord could cause a shock hazard if inserted into a socket elsewhere in the house.

The moulded plug on this appliance incorporates a 13A fuse. Should the fuse need to be replaced an ASTABEAB approved BS1362 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.


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 on your plug, proceed as follows:

1Connect the green - yellow or green (earth) wire to the terminal in

the plug marked ‘E’ or with the symbol or coloured green and yellow or green.

2Connect the blue (neutral) wire to the terminal in the plug marked ‘N’ or coloured black.

3Connect the brown (live) wire to the terminal in the plug marked ‘L’ or coloured red.

With the alternative plugs a 13A fuse must be fitted either in the

plug or adaptor or in the main fuse box. If in doubt contact a qualified electrician.

Green and yellow or green

The appliance should be transported only in a vertical upright position. The packing as supplied must be intact during transportation.

If during the course of transport the appliance has to be transported horizontally, the product must only be laid on its right hand side (when facing the door front) and it must not be operated for at least 4 hours to allow the system to settle after the appliance is brought back to upright position.

Failure to comply with the instructions could result in damage occurring to the appliance. The manufacturer will not be held responsible if these instructions are disregarded.

The appliance must be protected against rain, moisture and other atmospheric influences.

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.

Empty any water in the drain tray and Water Dispenser tank before moving. See section ‘Defrosting’ and ‘Care & cleaning’ for further information.

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 when carrying the appliance to avoid touching the bottom of the condenser metal

support/pipework at the back of the appliance as you might injure your fingers and hands or damage your product.

Important Make sure that mains cable is not caught under the appliance during and after carrying/moving the appliance, to avoid the mains cable becoming cut or damaged.

Do not attempt to sit or stand on top of your appliance. You could injure yourself and damage the appliance.

BEKO plc declines to accept any liability should the instructions not be followed.



Do not put your appliance 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 appliance has been designed to operate in room (ambient) temperatures between +5 and +32 degrees C (41 and 90 degrees F). Therefore if it is installed in an unheated/cold room (eg conservatory, annex, shed, garage, etc.) then it will not operate causing the freezer compartment to run warmer and as a result the storage time of frozen food may be reduced.

Do not place the appliance near cookers, radiators, or in direct sunlight as this will cause it to work harder. If installed next to a source of heat, maintain the following minimum side clearances:

From cookers

50mm (2")

From radiators

300mm (12")

Make sure that sufficient room is provided at the back of the appliance to ensure free air circulation. We also recommend 20mm ( 4/5") clearance on both sides, even though it is not essential for the operation of appliance. The essential clearance at the back is ensured when the wall spacers are fitted, see ‘Installation’.



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

2Locate the appliance on a smooth surface.

3To ensure it is standing upright adjust the two front feet by turning clockwise or anti-clockwise,until it is in firm contact with the floor. Correct adjustment of feet avoids excessive vibration and noise.

4A 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. Gently remove the plug from the receptacle. Never pull the mains cord, you may damage the appliance. In case of transportation, ensure you locate the plug in the receptacle provided to avoid transit damage.

5The space in the room where the appliance is installed must not be smaller than 10 cubic metres.

6Fit the front grille supplied with your appliance as shown in the diagram.

switching on for the first time

Before you switch on the appliance check:

1Ensure all packaging have been removed.

2Ensure the appliance is kept for at least 4 hours in upright position.

3Ensure the feet have been adjusted for levelling.

4Ensure the interior is dry and air can circulate freely at the rear.

5Ensure the interior is clean as recommended under ‘Care & cleaning’

6Insert the plug in to the wall socket and switch on the electricity supply.

When the fridge door is open, the interior light in the fridge compartment will come on.

You may hear some noise as the compressor and the freezer fan start up. The liquid and gases 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.”

7Set the thermostat knob half way between Setting 1 and Setting 5.

8Do not load with food immediately. Wait until the correct storage temperature has been reached. We recommend that you check the temperature with an accurate

thermometer (see section Temperature Control and Adjustment).

9When 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.

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

10Avoid 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.

11"[FOR CDA752F model only] Before you use the water dispenser for the first time, clean the water tank interior with clean warm water."


temperature control & adjustment

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 and freezer 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 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 completely.
