Before Putting Into Use

Before connecting the appliance to electrical power supply, leave it stand for about 2 hours, which will reduce the possibility of malfunctions in the cooling system due to transport handling.

Clean the appliance thoroughly, especially in the interior (See Cleaning and Maintenance).

In case the interior accessories are not correctly placed, rearrange them as described in chapter “Description of the Appliance”.

Instructions for Use

These instructions for use are intended for the user. They describe the appliance and correct operating procedures for safe use.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS:

We Care for the Environment

Our products use environmentally friendly manner. To this end, individual packaging materials are clearly marked.

These instructions are printed either on recycled paper or chlorine free bleached paper.

When your appliance finally wears out, please try not to burden the environment with it; call your nearest authorized service agent. (See Disposing of Worn Out Appliance)

Tips for Energy Savings

Try not to open the door too often, especially when the weather is hot and humid. Once you open the door, close it as soon as possible. This is especially important if you have an upright model.

Every now and then check if the appliance is sufficiently ventilated (adequate air circulation behind the appliance).

Set the thermostat from higher to lower settings as soon as possible (depends on how loaded the appliance is, ambient temperatures etc).

Before loading the appliance with packages of fresh foods, make sure that they are cooled to

ambient temperature. (excluding soups)

Ice and frost layers increase energy consumption, so clean the appliance as soon as the frost layer is 3-5 mm thick.

If the gasket is damaged or the door seal is poor, energy consumption is substantially higher. To restore efficiency, replace

the gasket.

Always consider instructions stated in sections Positioning and Energy Saving Tips, otherwise the energy consumption is substantially higher.

Important

If you have bought this appliance to replace an old one equipped with a door lock that cannot be opened from the inside (lock, bolt), make sure that the lock is removed, disabled or destroyed before discarding. This will make it impossible for children to accidentally lock themselves inside the appliance and suffocate.

The appliance must be properly connected to an electrical power supply. (See: Connection to Power Supply).

If the food has a strange smell or color, throw it away, because it is very likely that it is spoiled and therefore is dangerous to consume.

Always disconnect the appliance from the power supply before cleaning the appliance, replacing the light bulb and / or attempting repairs. WARNING: repairs should be preformed by qualified service personnel only.

Do not defrost the appliance with other electric appliances (for example a hair dryer) and never attempt to scrape/remove ice/frost with sharp objects. Use only enclosed tools or tools recommended by the manufacturer.

The refrigerating system of the appliance is filled with refrigerant and oil, so when the appliance is damaged, handle it with care and dispose of it in compliance with environmental protection safeguards. (See: We Care for the Environment).

The rating plate containing Model No/Serial No and other technical data specific to this unit, is located either inside the appliance or outside on the

rear wall.

Dispose of Worn Out

Appliances

When your appliance finally wears out, dispose of it in a safe and harmless manner. If the appliance is equipped with a door lock that cannot be opened from the inside (lock, bolt), make sure the lock is removed, disable or destroyed before being discarded. This will make it impossible for children to accidentally lock themselves inside the appliance and suffocate.

The refrigerator system of the appliance is filled with refrigerant and insulating substances which should be separately treated and processed. Call your nearest authorized service agent or specialized servicing center. If you are unable to locate one, contact your local authorities or your distributor. Be careful not to damage the tubes on the rear wall of the appliance (danger of pollution).

Operation Control

The temperature of the refrigerator is controlled by setting the thermostat knob. (exterior rear wall of the cabinet) to the desired setting.

Temperature Selection

To start the refrigerator, turn the temperature control knob, (exterior rear wall of the cabinet) to the position corresponding to the desired cooling ( on the graduated blue dial )

Fig A

The refrigerator temperature will vary depending on the quantity of the food stored and on the frequency with which the door is opened.

To turn the control to the “OFF” position, rotate the control knob to the “0” position. If the refrigerator has been left out of use for some time, set the control to maximum for 2-3 hours before turning to the desired position. If the refrigerator is not being used for long time periods, disconnect the plug and leave the door partially open. This will help to reduce mold/mildew from accumulating inside the refrigerator cabinet.

Changes in ambient room temperature will affect internal refrigerator temperatures (choose correct setting of the thermostat knob).

In STOP (0) position the appliance does not operate (cooling system is switched off), yet power supply is not interrupted (the light is on , when you open the refrigerator door).

Temperature in the refrigerator also depends on how often the door is opened.

Use

Storing Fresh Foods

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 so as to prevent mixing various moisture degrees and odors (in polyethylene bags or sheet, aluminum foil, wax paper, or stored in covered containers or bottles).

Before storing food in the refrigerator, remove excessive packaging (like yogurt in multi-package).

Pack systematically and make sure that foodstuffs do not touch each other (various odors may mix). Assure adequate air circulation around packages.

Never store flammable, volatile or explosive substances.

Beverages with high alcohol percentage shall be stored in tightly sealed bottles in

vertical position.

Food should not touch the rear wall of the refrigerator

Foods should be cooled down before storing.

Crispy and delicate foods should be stored in the coldest parts of the refrigerator.

Try not to open the door too often.

Set the thermostat to a setting where lowest temperatures are reached. Set the thermostat gradually so as to avoid freezing of foods. Use a thermometer and measure the temperature in the individual compartments. Place the thermostat in a glass vessel filled with water. Temperature readings are most reliable a few hours after a steady state condition is reached.

Some organic solutions like volatile oils in lemon and orange peel, acid in butter etc. can cause damage when in contact with plastic surfaces or gaskets for long periods of time.

Unpleasant odors inside the refrigerator is a sign that something is wrong with foods or that your refrigerator needs cleaning. Unpleasant odors can be eliminated or reduced by washing the interior of the refrigerator with mild solution of water and vinegar. We also recommend using activated carbon filters to clean the air or to neutralize odors.

If you are planning a long journey, make sure to remove perishable articles of food out of the appliance before you leave.

Maintenance and Cleaning

Automatic Defrosting of the

 

Switch Off the Appliance

Refrigerator

 

When Not In Use

 

 

 

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

Ice build-up on the inner back wall during the compressor operation; will (when the compressor has cycled off) defrost automatically. Defrost water collects inside the drain through passing through the drain outlet in the inner back wall into a drain pan situated above the compressor, from where it evaporates.

Cleaning the Appliance

Disconnect the power bar before cleaning the appliance.

Do not use coarse or aggressive cleaning agents as you can damage the surface.

Clean the exterior with water and detergent. Remove the detachable accessories in the interior of the appliance and clean with water and liquid detergent. Plastic parts cannot be washed in dishwashers.

Wash the interior of the appliance with lukewarm water, adding one or two spoonfuls of vinegar.

After cleaning, connect the appliance to power supply and reload it.

If you do not intend to use the appliance for long periods of time, (vacations) set the thermostat knob to the STOP (0) position, disconnect the power supply, take out the foods and defrost and clean the appliance. Leave the door slightly open.

Changing the Direction of the Door

Opening (Swing)

If you find the direction of opening the door on your appliance inconvenient, you can change it. Holes on the opposite side have already been prepared in the factory.

Trouble-Shooting Guide

Sometimes you may come across minor problems that in most cases do not require a service call and can be easily eliminated. The problem may have resulted from improper handling and/or installation of the appliance. Please refer to the below troubleshooting guide to assist you in identifying the possible cause and solution to your problem. Should the problem still persist after completing these checkpoints. Contact the closest authorized service agent in your area for assistance.

The Appliance Fails to Operate After Connecting to Electrical Power Supply

Check the power cord is properly connected.

Check the power supply in the electrical outlet. (blown fuse / circuit breaker)

Make sure the appliance is switched on. (thermostat knob in operating position)

Continuous Operation of the

Cooling System

The door is frequently opened or left open for too long.

The door is not properly closed (the door may sag, the gasket may be polluted or damaged).

Perhaps you may have overloaded the appliance with fresh foods.

The reason may be inadequate ventilation of the compressor (assure adequate air circulation).

Ice Formation on the Inner Rear Wall

As 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 case the ice formation on the inner back wall is increased (3-5 mm), ice should be manually defrosted.

Set the thermostat knob to STOP (0) position and leave the door open. Never use electric devices for defrosting and do not scrape the ice or frost layer with sharp objects.

After defrosting is complete, turn the knob to 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 is frequently opened or left too long; –the food stored in the refrigerator was warm; –the food or dish is touching the inner back wall.

Water is Leaking From the Refrigerator

If the discharge water outlet is clogged, or the defrost water drips over the channel, water will leak from the refrigerator.

Clean the clogged outlet, for example with a plastic straw.

Manually defrost the increased ice layer. See “Ice Formation on the Inner rear Wall”

Noise

Cooling in a refrigerator-freezing appliance is made possible by cooling the system using a compressor, which will produce certain noise levels. How noisy the appliance is depends on where it is placed, how it is used and how old the appliance is.

During the operation of the compressor the noise of the liquid is heard and when the compressor is not operating, the refrigerant flow is heard. This is a normal condition and it has no influence whatsoever on the lifetime of the appliance.

After starting the appliance, the operation of the compressor and the refrigerant flow may be louder, which does not mean that something is wrong with the appliance and it has no influence on the lifetime of the appliance. Gradually the is noise reduced.

Sometimes unusual and louder noise is heard, which is rather unusual for the appliance. This noise is often a consequence of inadequate installation.

–The appliance must be level and installed on a firm solid base/floor.

–It should not touch the wall or kitchen units standing next to it.

–Check the accessories on the interior of the appliance, they should be placed correctly in their positions; also check, bottles, tins, and other vessels are not touching each other causing rattling

and/or vibrations.
