Installation.

WARNING: THE APPLIANCE SHOULD ONLY BE INSTALLED BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN IN COMPLIANCE WITH THESE INSTRUCTIONS, CURRENT STANDARDS AND REGULATIONS.

Before Fitting:

Before connecting to the electricity supply leave the appliance to stand for 2 hours to allow the cooling system to settle.

Please read through this section before starting any work.

At the base of the kitchen unit intended for installing the appliance, there should be at least 200cm2 free space, for adequate air circulation.

Do not cover the air outlet grille at the top of the appliance.

Your Integrated Fridge Freezer is designed to fit into a tall housing as shown (fig 1). It is vitally important that the appliance is vented correctly.

Choosing a location:

Your Integrated Fridge Freezer should be fitted into a kitchen unit space where it is easy to use.

The power socket should be in a readily accessible position adjacent to the unit. Never place the appliance near a heat emitting device (eg. cooker, radiator, water heater or similar) and do not expose it to direct sunlight. In such a position your Fridge Freezer will have to work harder and will cost more to run and may be damaged by the heat. The appliance may be exposed to lower or higher temperatures but only for short periods of time and the temperature should never be lower than 5˚C.

The rear wall of the appliance gets warm during operation and water evaporates from the drain pan on the compressor. You must therefore provide adequate air circulation at the rear of the appliance.

694527.qxd 1/31/03 9:18 Page 10

Getting your Appliance ready for use.

Before connecting to the mains electricity supply leave the appliance to stand for 2 hours to allow the cooling system to settle.

Clean the appliance, and be thorough, especially in the interior. (see ‘Caring for your Appliance.

Final Check:

Before you start using your appliance check that:

-The appliance is level.

-It is thoroughly dry inside.

-There is adequate air circulation.

-Accessories are correctly placed in their positions.

Running in the Compressor:

Your appliance is operated by a compressor which switches on and off in order to maintain the internal temperature.

The compressor requires a running in period of up to 2 months. During this time it has to work a little harder and may result in more noise than usual.

Noise levels are also determined as to the location of the appliance, what is stored and where the items are placed,

Whether the compressor is running or not, it is normal to hear sounds created by the liquid and gases sealed within the system.

10

694527.qxd 1/31/03 9:18 Page 11

The Controls.

The temperature in both the fridge and the freezer is regulated by one thermostat which is located inside the top right of the fridge compartment.

Turn the control knob clockwise from the OFF

(O) position to the required setting1 - 7.

TEMPERATURE SELECTION -

Higher settings on the knob (towards 7) mean lower temperatures (colder) in all compartments of the appliance. Temperature in the interior of the appliance may even drop below 0˚C

When the ambient temperature is normal, we recommend medium setting.

Changes of the ambient temperature affect temperature in the interior of the appliance (choose the correct setting of the thermostat knob).

In the OFF (O) position the appliance does not operate (the cooling system is switched off), however the interior light will still operate when the door is opened.

694527.qxd 1/31/03 9:18 Page 12

Storing Food.

STORING FRESH FOOD:

Proper use of the appliance, adequately packed food, correct temperature and taking into account hygienic precautions will substantially influence the quality of the food stored.

Foods to be stored in the refrigerator should be properly packed, to prevent drying out and odour transference. Plastic bags, containers with lids, foil and plastic stretch wrap are ideal.

Wrap cheese firstly in greaseproof paper and then in a polythene bag, excluding as much air as possible. For best results take out of the fridge an hour before eating.

Before storing food in the refrigerator, remove the excess packaging.

Allow adequate air circulation around packages, make sure that foodstuffs do not touch each other (various odours may mix).

Never store poisonous or dangerous substances. Your appliance has been designed for the storage of edible food stuffs only.

Beverages with high alcohol percentage shall be stored in tightly sealed bottles in a vertical position.

Position food to allow air to circulate freely, ensuring nothing comes into contact with the cooling plate at the rear of the refrigerator.

Foods should be cooled down before storing.

Quickly perishable foods should be stored at the back ie. the coldest part of the refrigerator.

Try not to open the door too often.

Wrap raw or defrosting meat and poultry in polythene or foil and store below cooked foods and dairy products.

Clean out salad bins regularly and check that nothing has dripped into them.

Keep food for as short a time as possible and adhere to ‘sell by’ dates.

Store fruit and vegetables in the salad bins under the glass shelf as it provides a better humidity level for these items.

Take off any unusable leaves on vegetables and wipe off any soil.

Leave lettuce, cabbage, parsley and cauliflower on the stem.

If you are going away, ensure that perishable foods are removed from the refrigerator before you leave.

Storing Food.

FREEZING FRESH FOODS -

Carefully select food you intend to freeze: it should be of high quality and thoroughly cleaned before freezing it.

Use correct packaging suitable for the freezer.

-The packaging should be air tight and should not leak since this could cause substantial vitamin loss and dehydration of foods.

-Foils and bags should be soft enough to wrap tightly around foods.

Mark packages with the following data:

-The kind and quantity of foods.

-The date of loading.

Prepare fresh foods for freezing in small quantities to ensure that the food freezes quicker and its quality does not deteriorate during thawing and preparation.

Dry packs of food to be frozen so that they do not freeze together.

The quantity of fresh foods that can be loaded in the freezer within 24 hours is indicated on the rating plate (freezing capacity). If the loaded amount is too large, the quality of freezing is reduced, which affects the quality of frozen foods.

Don’t put liquid filled bottles or sealed cans containing fizzy drinks into the freezer as they may burst.

Don’t try to keep food which has thawed, it should be eaten within 24 hours, or cooked and refrozen.

Don’t give children lollipops and water ices directly from the freezer, the low temperature may cause ‘freezer burns’ on their lips.

FREEZING PROCEDURE - Switch on the integrated switch for intensive cooling some 24 hours before loading the appliance with larger amounts of fresh foods and turn the thermostat knob to position 4-6.After 24 hours load the freezer with fresh food packages. After loading wait another 24 hours then switch off the switch and turn the thermostat knob to the required position (see Temperature Selection page 11). The switch is ON when the marking I or colour marking is visible, and OFFwhen the marking O is visible or colour marking is not visible (depending on model).

Fast freeze switch

STORING FROZEN FOODS -

Store commercially frozen foods according to the manufacturer’s recommended storage instructions as indicated on the packaging. When shopping select frozen foods last and be careful in choosing adequately packed foods. Wrap frozen food when you buy it and put it in the freezer as soon as possible. Don’t but packages of food with a frost layer, this indicates that the package has been at least partially thawed before.

DEFROSTING FROZEN FOOD -

Partially thawed or defrosted food should be used as soon as possible.

Cold air preserves the food but it does not destroy micro-organismswhich rapidly activate after defrosting and make foods perishable.

Caring for your Appliance.

DEFROSTING:

AUTOMATIC DEFROSTING OF THE REFRIGERATOR-

There is no need to defrost the refrigerator, because ice deposited on the interior back wall is defrosted automatically.

Ice is deposited on the interior back wall during the compressor operation, later on when the compressor is not operating, the ice defrosts and water droplets collect and drain through the outlet in the interior back wall into the drain pan situated above the compressor, from where it evaporates.

MANUAL DEFROSTING OF THE REFRIGERATORAs long as the defrost water runs to the channel and through the outlet to the drain pan on the compressor, automatic defrosting of the appliance is assured.

In the case of ice formation on the interior rear wall increasing (3-5mm),ice should be manually defrosted.

Set the thermostat knob to OFF (O) position and leave the refrigerator door open.

Never use electric devices for defrosting and do not scrape the ice with sharp objects. After defrosting is completed, turn the thermostat knob to the desired position and close the refrigerator door.

The cause of increased ice formation may be one of the following:

-The door does not seal well. (Clean the gasket if it is contaminated or replace it if it is damaged).

-The door was frequently opened or was left open for a long period.

-The food stored in the refrigerator was warm.

-Food or packaging is touching the interior rear wall.

MANUAL DEFROSTING OF THE FREEZERWhen the frost and ice layer in the freezer is 3 - 5mm thick you should defrost the freezer.

A few hours before defrosting, set the thermostat to position 7, so that packages are well frozen.

Reset the thermostat to OFF (O) position and disconnect the power supply. Empty the freezer, wrap frozen food in a blanket and put in a cool place.

Insert the supplied pipe into the groove (the defrost water outlet) in the bottom of the appliance

Place a vessel underneath to collect the defrost water. Defrosting is accelerated if the door is left open.

Avoid using defrosting sprays, as they may cause damage to the plastic parts and may be hazardous to health.

REPLACING THE LIGHT BULB-

Should the light fail to work, switch off at the power point and pull out the plug. Remove the shelves to make access easier. Access to the bulb is from the rear of the cover (arrow 1) and remove the cover in the direction of (arrow 2).

Unscrew the old bulb. Screw the new bulb securely into the holder. Replace the plug in the power point and switch on. If the light fails to work, do not worry, it will not affect the working of your Larder Fridge. Obtain a replacement (max 15 watt 220-240Valternating current, E14 lampholder) from your nearest Spares Centre and replace the old bulb.

Caring for your Appliance (cont).

CLEANING THE APPLIANCE:

WARNING: SWITCH OFF ELECTRICITY SUPPLY AND PULL OUT THE MAINS PLUG BEFORE CLEANING.

WARNING: DO NOT USE HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS, ABRASIVE POWDERS OR WAX POLISH. THESE NOT ONLY DAMAGE THE SURFACES, BUT ALSO LEAVE A SMELL WITHIN THE APPLIANCE.

Clean the exterior of the appliance with warm water and a small amount of liquid detergent, dry thoroughly.

Varnished surfaces are cleaned with soft cloth and an alcohol based cleaning agent (for example glass cleaners). You may also use alcohol (ethanol or isoprophylic alco hol).

The application of abrasive and specially aggressive cleaners, such as the stainless steel cleaners, is not appropriate for the cleaning of plastic and coated parts.

Remove the detachable accessories in the interior of the appliance and wash in warm soapy water, dry thoroughly.

Wipe the interior and fittings with a clean cloth wrung out in either a solution of one teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to one pint water or Milton sterilising fluid, diluted according to manufacturers’ instructions. Dry the interior thoroughly with a clean cloth before replacing fittings and food.

Every now and then wipe the condenser on the rear wall of the appliance. Use a soft non-metalbrush or a vacuum cleaner.

Do not forget to clean also the defrost water receptacle above the refrigerator compressor (do not remove the receptacle).

Use warm, soapy water to wipe along and in between the creases of the door seal, dry thoroughly.

WARNING: Do not use detergent it will damage the door seal.

After cleaning reconnect to the power supply and switch on.

GOING AWAY:

If you do not intent to use the appliance for a long period, set the thermostat knob to the OFF (O) position, switch off at the socket outlet and pull out the plug.

Remove all food, follow defrosting instructions (page 13) and clean the appliance. Leave the door ajar to prevent the accumulation of odours.

694527.qxd 1/31/03 9:18 Page 16

Troubleshooting.

When checking an appliance you can come across some problems which are a result of improper handling of the appliance and can be easily eliminated.

Run through this checklist before calling your nearest Service office.

The appliance won’t work.

Check the plug is firmly positioned in the wall

 

socket and the power supply is switched on.

 

Check the power supply with another

 

appliance.

 

Check the fuse.

 

 

There has been a power failure.

DO NOT OPEN THE FREEZER DOOR.

 

If power does not return within 16 hours, food

 

should be removed from the freezer and either

 

cooked and eaten within 24 hours or cooked

 

and refrozen.

 

 

The appliance is making alot of noise.

Check the appliance is stabilised.

 

Ensure the appliance is not touching the wall

 

or kitchen units.

 

 

Continuous Operation of the Compressor

Has the door been opened frequently or for

 

left open for a long period of time?

 

The door is not closed properly/does not seal

 

properly (clean the gasket if it is contaminated

 

or replace it if it is damaged).

 

Have you observed the maximum storage

 

quantities?

 

Check there is adequate air circulation.

 

 

Water is leaking from the refrigerator.

Check that the defrost water outlet is not

 

blocked. (If blocked a plastic straw can be used

 

to clear).

 

Check that stored food or packaging is not in

 

contact with the cooling plate on the interior

 

rear wall of the refrigerator. (NB. It is normal

 

for droplets to run down the cooling plate).

 

Is there ice formation on the interior rear wall?

 

(see ‘Manual defrosting of the Refrigerator’ )

 

 

Refrigerator interior light does not work.

SWITCH OFF AT THE SOCKET AND PULL OUT

 

THE MAIN PLUG, check the bulb is screwed in

 

correctly.

 

If it still doesn’t work, replace the bulb (see

 

‘Changing the Light Bulb).

 

 

The freezer door is difficult to open.

If you have just closed the freezer door, it

 

may be particularly difficult to open again

 

immediately. This is partly due to the

 

difference in temperature between the room

 

and the internal compartment. Wait 5 minutes

 

for the external and internal pressure to

 

equalise and try again.

 

 

Refrigerator and freezer compartments are

 

colder than normal.

This is normal when the integrated fast freeze

 

switch is selected.

The compressor runs for prolonged periods.
