Important!

It is important that this User Guide should be retained with your Ice & Water refrigerator for future reference. Should the appliance be sold or transferred to another owner, please ensure that the User Guide is left with the appliance. This will ensure that the new owner can familiarize themselves with the information and warnings contained within the Guide.

Safety and warnings 3

WARNING!EN

Electric Shock Hazard

Read and follow the SAFETY AND WARNINGS outlined in this User Guide before operating this appliance.

Failure to do so can result in death, electric shock, fire or injury to persons.

Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this User Guide.

Important safety precautions

Warning

When using this appliance always exercise basic safety precautions including the following:

Danger

This appliance is not intended for use by children or infirmed persons without supervision. This is especially important when using the freezer drawer compartment. Young children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the appliance.

Risk of child entrapment. Before you throw away your old refrigerator or freezer:

Take off the doors

Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.

Disposal

Extreme care must be taken when disposing of your old appliance to avoid hazards. The refrigerant gas must be safely removed and for the safety of young children, remove doors. Your Fisher & Paykel Appliances Authorised Service Center will be able to give advice on environmentally friendly methods of disposing of your old refrigerator or freezer.

Electrical

This appliance must be properly installed in accordance with the installation instructions before it is used.

Never unplug your refrigerator or freezer by pulling on the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from the outlet socket.

Do not plug in any other appliance at the same power point outlet socket as your refrigerator or freezer is using. Do not use extension cords or double adapters with these products.

Repair or replace immediately all electric service cords that have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion along its length or at either the plug or appliance end.

If the power supply cord is damaged, it must only be replaced by your Fisher & Paykel Appliances Authorised Service Center because special purpose tools are required.

4 Safety and warnings

When moving your appliance away from the wall, be careful not to roll over or damage the power cord.

Unplug your refrigerator or freezer before cleaning or replacing the interior lightbulb.

Storing food and drinks

Never store volatile or flammable materials in your refrigerator or freezer as they may explode. Never freeze liquids in glass containers. Liquid expands during freezing, which may cause the container to explode.

Never freeze carbonated drinks. They may explode.

Do not consume food if it is too cold. Food removed from the freezer compartment may be cold enough to cause damage when brought into contact with bare skin, eg. frozen ice cubes.

Power failure – food safety

Do not refreeze frozen foods that have thawed completely. Follow the recommendations below if you discover food in your freezer has thawed:

1)Ice crystals still visible – food may be refrozen but should be stored for a shorter period than recommended.

2)Thawed but refrigerator cold – refreezing generally not recommended. Fruits and some cooked food can be refrozen but use as soon as possible. Meat, fish, poultry – use immediately or cook then refreeze. Vegetables – discard as they usually go limp and soggy.

3)Thawed but warmer than 38˚F (4˚C). Red meat can be cooked immediately and refrozen but use as soon as possible. Discard all other frozen foods.

Do not refreeze frozen foods that have thawed completely. The food may be dangerous to eat.

Important!

Cleaning

Many commercially available cleaning products contain solvents which may attack plastic components of your refrigerator or freezer and cause them to crack. Please refer to the cleaning care section of this booklet for further advice.

Fig.2 Water connection kit

Important!

It is imperative the pressure reducing valve (PRV) is fitted prior to the filter. This valve ensures the water will not flow back into the mains from the refrigerator water system. If the PRV is not fitted to the connection line your Ice & Water refrigerator features may not function in some circumstances.

It is recommended that an authorised plumber in your state or town is used to install the water connection.

The new tubings supplied with the refrigerator are to be used, old tubings from old Ice & Water connections should not be used.

Installation precautions/warning

DO NOT use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.

WARNING – connect to potable water supply only.

DO NOT install on line pressure above 130 psi (900 kPa) or below 22 psi (150 kPa). DO NOT use on hot water supply (100°F [38°C max.]).

DO NOT install near electrical wires or water pipes that will be in the path of drilling when selecting the location of filter system.

DO NOT mount filter in such a position so that it will be struck by other items, such as wastebaskets, etc.

DO NOT install the filter in direct sunlight as prolonged exposure to light can weaken plastic components.

DO NOT install in a location that is susceptible to freezing temperatures as damage to the housing could occur.

DO NOT screw filter to the refrigerator.

AVOID contamination of pipes during installation.

DO NOT use copper tubing. The plastic tubing supplied should always be used.

6 Installation instructions

Installation instructions:

1 Ensure that refrigerator is not plugged into a power supply.2 Locate a cold water supply/feed only suitable for a water

connection. Tee & tap fitting is not supplied. If you can’t find the connection faucet, contact an authorised plumber in your state or town to fit your water connection.

3Connect the 8” (200 mm) blue tubing to the outlet of the PRV (blue collet) and the inlet connection of the water filter cartridge as shown in Diagram 1. Gently pull on both ends to ensure it is locked.

4 Connect the white ¼” (6 mm) tubing to the outlet of the water filter cartridge as shown in Diagram 2. Gently pull to ensure it is locked.

5 Measure the required length of tubing to run from the PRV to the water connection point.

6 Cut the tubing making sure the ends are square and clean.

7Connect the tubing to the faucet connection and the base of the PRV (white collet) and then to the faucet as shown in Diagram 3. Please note that the faucet connection

supplied should fit most installation situations. If your faucet requires a different fitting, please contact an authorised plumber in your state or town to purchase the correct fitting.

8 Connect one locking key to each side of the water filter cartridge in between the cartridge and the locking collet as shown in Diagram 4.

9To flush the water filter and check for leaks, aim the end of the tubing into a bucket, turn isolating faucet on and run at least 3 qt (3 L) of water through. Once complete, turn isolating faucet off.

10Locate desired position for water filter noting carefully the following points:

It is recommended to fit the water filter in a vertical orientation with the water filter head at the top. This will minimize water leakage when replacing cartridge. Ensure the filter is in a convenient location to access every 6 months for replacement. We suggest that

this location is beside the water filter supply faucet in a cupboard beside the refrigerator.

A minimum clearance of 2 ½” (64 mm) from the bottom of the filter cartridge is required to perform cartridge removal.

Do not screw water filter to refrigerator.

19Coil water line tubing behind the refrigerator. Push your refrigerator into place being careful not to kink or squash the water line running into the water (solenoid) valve.

20Read pages 9 – 14 carefully, and then turn refrigerator on.

21The first time you require water out of the dispenser, there will be a delay while the water reservoir fills up. As this is happening, the symbol will flash. Once the reservoir is full, this symbol will stop flashing.

8 Installation instructions

22Run a further 3 qt (3 L) through the system, stopping intermittently to ensure the reservoir is flushed out. Failure to do this will result in excessive dripping from your dispenser.

23Press until the Ice menu is highlighted then pressto turn on the ice maker. Presstogether to force a cycle. The ice tray will flip. Force another cycle. The ice tray will flip and spill the water into the ice bin. Empty water and replace bin.

24You are now ready to enjoy chilled water and ice dispensing from your Active Smart™ refrigerator. Please note that once installation is complete a few drips may appear out of the dispenser over the next few days as the remaining trapped air is cleared.

Important!

All connections must be checked for leaks.

If unsure of connection process and/or leaks then contact your local plumber to install and check the system for you.

Ensure white ¼” (6 mm) tubing is routed away from sharp objects, sharp corners (beware of kinking tube as this will stop water flow), clear of the refrigerator unit compartment and not in a location where it can be squashed.

Ensure all push-fitconnections are firmly pushed into place. The tube should push in ¾” (20 mm) before reaching the stop.

If tubing is removed at any point, re-cutthe end andre-insert.Tubing must be fully inserted to avoid leaks.

To remove tube from connection points, turn off the isolating faucet, push in the collet and gently pull tubing at the same time, as shown in Diagram 11.

6. What to do if your product is unstable

EGently push the refrigerator back until the rear rollers contact floor.

Measure the gap under the front foot, which has come off the floor.

Obtain some solid packing material (hardwood, plastic etc) which fits firmly into the gap under the foot.

Note: Do not use metallic materials that may corrode and stain or damage floor coverings.

FWind both front feet up and roll the product out of position.

Place the packing material in the location diagonally opposite the front roller that lifts off the floor.

Make sure the packing material stays in place when the product is pushed back into position.

Ideally, the packing material is large enough to rest against the back wall so as to prevent it moving when the cabinet is pushed into position.

14 Installation instructions

Before placing food in the fresh food or freezer compartments

Remove all packaging. Ensure that all transit clips are removed from the refrigerator. These are small rubber stops located at the back of the shelves.

Clean the inside of the appliance with warm water and a little liquid detergent to remove manufacturing and transportation dust.

Allow the refrigerator and freezer to run empty for 2 – 3 hours to allow each compartment to cool to the appropriate temperature.

The appliance may have an odor on its initial operation, but this will go when the refrigerator and freezer have cooled sufficiently.

Energy efficiency

Do not cover your appliances with any material that will prevent air from flowing around the cabinet sides.

Do not leave the door open for any longer than is necessary.

Allow good clearances in front of the air ducts within the cabinet for maximum cold air distribution.

Moving or storing your refrigerator

If your refrigerator or freezer is turned off for any reason, wait 10 minutes before turning it back on. This will allow the refrigeration system pressures to equalise before restarting.

Moving your refrigerator

Turn off the appliance and unplug from the power point. Remove all food. Turn the adjustable feet to the right as far as they will turn (refer to page 12).

Ease the refrigerator out of its position. Tuck the power cord away and tape the doors closed. Tape the shelves in place. If the cabinet needs to be placed at an angle or laid down, carefully lay it on its side (the right hand side when viewed from the front).

Relocate and install. If the appliance has been left on its side for any length of time, leave it standing upright for at least 10 minutes before turning on.

Storing your refrigerator or freezer

When storing your cleaned appliance, leave the door(s) open. This allows air to circulate and prevents the build up of bacteria and moulds.

Before using again, clean well using a mixture of warm water and baking soda (add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to each 1 pint (500 ml) of water). Rinse with clean water.

Holiday time

We recommend you leave your refrigerator or freezer operating while you are on holiday.

Before you start using your Ice & Water refrigerator 15

Check refrigerator is switched on and has cooled for at least 2 hours (refer to page 23 – The temperature of your refrigerator and freezer) before use. EN Check that the water filter has been connected and turned on.

Turn on ice maker (refer to page 19).

At first use allow approximately 1 minute from when the dispensing pad is pushed until water is dispensed. This will allow the tank to fill.

Run through and discard the first 3 qt (3 L) of water from the dispenser, stopping intermittently (refer to page 18 – First use). Failure to do this will result in excessive dripping from your dispenser.

Discard the first bin of ice (refer to page 19 – First use).

You are now ready to enjoy ice and water from your Active Smart™ refrigerator.

Fig.15 Water dispenser

Please note that once installation is complete a few drips may appear out of the dispenser over the next few days as the remaining trapped air is cleared.

18 Using your water dispenser

Dispensing pad

Your water dispenser has been designed for one handed operation. Simply push your glass up against the dispenser pad found at the back of the dispenser area. This pad requires only a gentle press to activate.

Please remember that pressing very hard against the dispensing pad will not make the dispenser operate faster or produce greater quantities of water.

First use

After installation, on the first use, allow approximately a one minute delay from when the dispensing pad is pushed until water is dispensed. This will allow the tank to fill completely. The symbol will flash while the water reservoir fills up. Once the reservoir is full, the symbol will stop flashing.

After you fill the tank for the first time, dispense and discard approximately 3 qt (3 L) stopping intermittently to flush the tank out.

Dispensing

Unless Measured Fill is selected, water will be dispensed in free-flowmode. (For more information on Measured Fill refer

to page 21). To dispense water push the dispensing pad gently, using a

glass or container. When you dispense water, a light will appear above the dispensing area, and on the display screen. The water fill icon will also appear.

To stop the flow of water, simply pull your glass away from

the dispensing pad.

Fig.17 Water dispenser

Important!

To avoid damage to property or personal injury do not put hands, fingers or objects up the dispenser opening.

Please note that once installation is complete a few drips may appear out of the dispenser over the next few days as the remaining trapped air is cleared.

Using your ice maker 19

Ice maker

EN

 

Your ice maker is designed to automatically dispense ice until it senses that the bin is full. So the more ice you use, the more it makes. It is even clever enough to sense when there is no bin in place to catch the ice.

First use

When you first turn your refrigerator on after installation, the ice maker will be off.

To turn your ice maker on use the button to scroll to thescreen.

Use the orbutton to turn the ice maker on or off.

Shows the ice maker is on.

Shows the ice maker is off.

Presstogether to force a cycle. The ice tray will flip. Force another cycle. The ice tray will flip and spill the water into the ice bin. Empty water and replace bin.

If the bin is full, or inserted incorrectly the ice maker will not

operate. When the bin is inserted correctly the scoop will be on

the right hand side of the bin for models E522B and the front of Fig.18 Turning ice maker on the bin for model RF201A (refer to Fig.19 on page 20). If the bin is

removed the ice maker will not operate

Once your ice maker is in operation, discard the first bin of ice cubes. This will flush away any impurities in the water line and ensure that you get the best quality ice. We recommend that you also do this after vacations or extended periods of not using ice. We recommend that you turn the ice maker off if:

The water supply is to be off for several hours or

The ice storage bin is to be removed for a period of time or

You are going on holiday/vacation.

20 Using your ice maker

Information about your ice maker

Your automatic ice maker will produce approximately eight cubes of ice every 2 – 3 hours, dependent on freezer compartment temperature and number of door openings.

The ice cube tray will fill with water after the freezer has reached the correct temperature. The first cubes will normally freeze after several hours.

When cubes are frozen, they will be ejected from the mould into the ice storage bin. Ice making will continue until the storage bin is full.

Ice making will resume when the ice is used.

For maximum ice storage, level the stored cubes with the ice scoop provided.

Your Ice & Water product comes with a smaller ice bin inside the larger freezer bin. Attached to this is a scoop for the ice.

If a large amount of ice is required, remove the smaller storage bin and allow ice to fall into the larger bin.

If ice is not used often, old cubes will become cloudy, taste stale, will shrink and may stick together. Empty the ice storage bin periodically, wash in lukewarm water, dry thoroughly and place back.

E522B

RF201A

Fig.19 Ice storage bin and scoop in correct position

Important!

Avoid contact with the moving parts of the ice maker ejector mechanism, and do not place your fingers on the automatic ice making mechanism while the refrigerator is in operation.

Do not use ice cubes that may have become discolored, usually with a green-bluecolor. If such discolouration is noted, discard the ice cubes and contact your Fisher & Paykel Appliances Authorised Service Center.

Ensure the ice maker is connected to the filter and only to a drinkable water supply. Installation of the water connection to the ice maker must be completed by a qualified service technician or a qualified plumber (see installation instructions).

26 Active Smart™ special features

Fruit and vegetable bins and humidity control cover

The fruit and vegetable bins feature a unique cover which provides two functions:

The humidity cover seals the bins and provides a humid microclimate to extend storage times of fruits and vegetables.

The humidity cover prevents condensation, which forms at high humidities, from dripping down onto the fruit and vegetables. The ability to retain high humidity in the fruit and vegetable bin may produce small amounts of water in the bottom of the fruit and vegetable bins. This can be wiped out as required.

Fruit and vegetable bins and humidity slide (where fitted)

Each fruit and vegetable bin has a humidity slide control that can be adjusted to fruit or vegetables depending on what is stored in the bins.

If possible try to store fruit and vegetables separately. This will help extend their storage life. If there is a mixture of fruit and vegetables in the bin adjust the position of the control to the center.

If there is too much water in the bins the control can be adjusted towards the setting with fewer drips.

Remember a small amount of water in the bins is beneficial for fruit and vegetable storage.

Slim storage drawer (where fitted)

EN

 

The bins at the bottom of the refrigerator provide storage space for items that you may want to keep separate from the rest of the refrigerator. These slim storage bins can be used for deli item storage, beverages or for defrosting foods.

Door alarms

Fig.26 Slim storage drawer

If the fresh food compartment door is left open the alarm will beep after 90 seconds and if the freezer door is left open the alarm will beep after 60 seconds.

While either door remains open, subsequent beeps will sound every 30 seconds for 5 minutes. A continuous alarm will sound if the door has been left open for 5 minutes or longer and the light will turn off. The alarm will stop when the door is closed.

Bottle rack (where fitted)

The bottle rack can be used to store a variety of bottles and can be positioned anywhere you would position a shelf. To re-position,lift the rear of the rack and pull forward. Bottles are best stored with the neck of the beverage facing the front of the refrigerator.

Drip Tray

The drip tray is designed to fit into the lip at the bottom of the water dispenser panel.

To insert the tray always ensure that the rounded sides are fitted into the dispenser panel first. The purpose of the tray is to capture any odd drips of water that may fall after dispensing. The tray can be easily removed for cleaning (see page 32).

Glass Shelves

Glass shelves can be repositioned in the cabinet as desired. Remove by lifting up at the back and pulling forward.

28 Water filter

All the water that enters your refrigerator is filtered to remove impurities through a cartridge located in a position of your choice outside the refrigerator. Of course, this will need changing approximately every 6 months or up to 740 gallons (2800 L) depending on the quality of the incoming water and how much you use the dispenser.

There is a replacement indicator icon on the control panel which will appear when the filter needs replacing. It will flash, when dispensing water, as a reminder.

Replacement cartridges are available from your authorised Fisher & Paykel Dealer. The details of the replacement cartridge are on the label on the cartridge.

Changing the water filter cartridge

It is not necessary to turn off the water supply before attempting to change the water filter cartridge.

1Grasp and firmly twist the cartridge in an anticlockwise direction (to the left when installed in the recommended orientation) as shown in Diagram 1.

2Pull the cartridge away from the filter head (down when installed in the recommended orientation) as shown in Diagram 2.

– It is not unusual for a few drops of water to be present when the filter is removed.

3Discard old filter.

4Filter installation:

Remove protective cap on spigot on head.

Push the cartridge up towards filter head while rotating it in a clockwise direction (to the right when installed in the recommended orientation) as shown in Diagram 3.

5Reset filter indicator icon on the display (this will remind you when the filter is due to be replaced again). Refer to page 29.

6Dispense 10 qt (10 L) to flush the cartridge, removing trapped air and harmless carbon fines.

7A few drips may appear out of the dispenser over the next few days as the remaining trapped air is cleared.

To reset the filter indicator

EN

 

Important!

We recommend the water filter is used from installation.

Do not reset monitor before filter is changed or filter monitoring will be inaccurate.

Press and holdandbuttons for 4 seconds to reset the filter indicator.

If present the icon in the screen will disappear when reset.

To disable the filter indicator

Note: if disabled, you will not be reminded to change your filter.

When no filter is to be fitted, you can disable the filter indicator.

Press and hold,andbuttons for 4 seconds to turn this feature off/on.

When activated or deactivated the icon will flash and on or off will be displayed in the

screen.

We recommend that you do not disable the filter indicator if you have a filter fitted to the connection.

Important!

To avoid serious illness or death, do not use the water filter where water is unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after use of filter.

The water filter cartridge needs to be changed when the filter indicator icon flashes on the interface panel.

We recommend the water filter cartridge is replaced when the icon flashes. This will happen every 6 months or 740 gallons (2800 L).

If the water filtration system has been allowed to freeze, replace filter cartridge.

The rate of water flow through the water dispenser can slow down as the filter cartridge accumulates any sediment which may be present in the water supplied to your home. This varies depending upon your local water quality, which may require your filter cartridge to be changed more frequently.

In cases of excessively reduced filter life we recommend that you consult a local plumber or your water supplier for advice on suitable filtration requirements for the water supplied to your home. Filter replacement is the consumer’s responsibility and will not be covered by the warranty except in the case of faulty parts or materials within the filter cartridge.

If the water has not been dispensed for some time or water has an unpleasant taste or odour, flush system by dispensing 10qt (10 L) of water.

If unpleasant taste or odour persists, you may wish to fit a new filter cartridge.

30 Measured Fill Calibration

Measured Fill Calibration

The accuracy of your Measured Fill function can be affected by variations in the incoming water pressure. The Measured Fill Calibration Mode allows you to fine-tunethe amount of water dispensed from the preselected volumes on your cabinet.

The calibration mode is worked out as a percentage. You can measure the amount the refrigerator is under filling or over filling and increase or decrease the calibration to get the exact amount you want.

To assess whether the Measured Fill function is under or over filling:

Press the button until 1 qt (1 L) is displayed. Dispense this amount into a measuring jug.

Estimate the amount of water that has been dispensed into the jug. eg. 31 floz = under filling by 1 floz or 975 ml = under filling by 25 mls

To calculate the Calibration factor:

Transfer the difference into a percentage.

eg. 32/31 = 1.03 = 103% or 1000/975 = 1.03 = 103%

Enter the Calibration mode by pressing and holding theandbuttons together for 4 seconds. 100CAL will be displayed.

The number displayed is a percentage. Adjust this accordingly using the andbuttons. eg. 100 CAL = 103 CAL

Press the button to confirm your selection.

Please note:

The Measured Fill function has an accuracy of +/-5%at the time of calibration.

The accuracy of your calibration will of course be subject to the accuracy of your measuring device and method.

However, if your refrigerator is malfunctioning, have it attended to by your Fisher & Paykel Appliances Authorised Service Center as soon as possible. All electrical repairs must be carried out by an adequately trained service technician or qualified electrician.

32 Cleaning and caring for your refrigerator

Exterior

Stainless exterior doors (Iridium or EZKleen finishes)

It is important when cleaning the exterior door surface of your refrigerator, to only use liquid dishwashing detergent dissolved in warm water.

Dry the door with a clean, lint free cloth.

The use of any abrasive or stainless steel cleaners and solvents will damage the door surface.

Water dispenser pad and interface

We have incorporated a Dispenser and Key Lock function in your refrigerator to make cleaning easier (refer to page 24). This will help you to avoid accidental water dispensing while you clean. Clean the pad and interface panel with a soft damp cloth.

Other exterior surfaces

Clean all other exterior surfaces with warm water and detergent.

If necessary, clean the magnetic door gasket and the center door gaskets with an old toothbrush, warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent.

Water evaporator tray

The water evaporator tray is found above the compressor at the back of the refrigerator or freezer. The tray may require infrequent cleaning.

Carefully move the refrigerator or freezer out from the wall. Switch off the appliance.

We do not recommend that you remove the evaporator tray. If cleaning is required, excess water can be soaked up from the evaporator tray using a sponge. Wipe out with warm water and detergent or disinfectant.

Reassemble taking care not to over-tightenthe fasteners. Switch on the appliance.

Drip Tray

To clean, take the tray out of the dispenser panel and pull the two halves of the tray apart.

Clean in warm water with a mild detergent. Dry the tray and clip back together.

Reinsert the tray back into the dispenser panel.

Cleaning and caring for your refrigerator 33

Interior

EN

 

It is important to keep the interior of the refrigerator and freezer clean to help prevent food from becoming contaminated during storage.

The amount and types of food stored determines how often cleaning should be carried out (ideally once every 1 to 2 weeks) in the refrigerator.

Remove the shelves from cabinet and door. Wash shelves and storage bins in warm water and detergent; rinse in clean water and dry before replacing.

Wipe over the interior surfaces with warm water and detergent or baking soda dissolved in warm water (add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to each ½ qt (500 ml) of water). Rinse with clean water.

To help remove “old stale refrigerator” smells add a few drops of vanilla essence or vinegar to the water before cleaning.

Clean exterior surfaces with warm water and detergent. Use a toothbrush for the magnetic door gasket.

Do not use harsh, abrasive cloths or cleaners or highly perfumed, strong smelling cleaners or solvents on any part of the refrigerator or freezer.

Glass shelves

Clean with warm water and detergent or a glass cleaner. If cleaning the shelves without removing from the cabinet, use only warm water and detergent as a glass cleaner can damage the plastic components of your refrigerator.

Bottle rack

Clean with warm water and detergent. The use of abrasive cleaners and solvents may cause damage.

Automatic ice dispenser

We do not recommend you clean the ice maker componentry, but it is important to clean the bins occasionally.

The storage bin should be cleaned regularly and the old ice in the bottom of the bin discarded. Wash bin in lukewarm water, dry thoroughly and replace.

When replacing the bin ensure that the scoop is on the right hand side, (E522B only) and at the front on RF210A.

Important!

Many commercially available cleaning products contain solvents that may attack the plastic components of your freezer and cause them to crack. It is important to use only warm water and a small amount of liquid dishwashing detergent on any plastic components inside and outside your freezer. Avoid using anti-bacterialcleaning products on either the interior or exterior of the cabinet as they may cause rusting of metal components and cracking of plastic components.

34 Cleaning and caring for your refrigerator

Humidity Control System

Important!

When cleaning the shelf above the vegetable bins, we recommend that you do not disassemble the Humidity Control System from the shelf.

In the event that the plastic lid and humidity slides become separated from the glass shelf, follow these instructions to reassemble.

1 Turn shelf upside down

2 To attach humidity slides onto shelf front corners, fit bottom clips into shelf front trim. Next, slide sideways towards shelf until arm clips onto glass.

3To attach humidity control lid – with text facing you, align lid with front

of shelf. Hold lid vertically and fit front end into retainer on shelf. Ensure lid fits into retainer as well as underneath humidity slides.

4At the sides of the shelf, adjust

humidity slide tabs so that the plastic lid is between the shelf and the tabs.

5 If clips on back of shelf are present, fasten lid with rear clips. Ensure that the cover is fully secure at front and back of shelf.

To remove trays or fixed bins

EN

 

For ease of removal, empty food from tray/bin first. Hold the center front of the tray/bin handle.

Lift vertically to unclip from the runners and pull tray/bin towards you to remove.

Push both runners back into refrigerator.

To replace trays or fixed bins:

Fig.30 Tray removal

 

With the runners pushed back into the refrigerator, place the tray/bin on top of the runners. Push the tray/bin back slowly until you feel it clip back onto the runners.

Important!

Ensure that trays and bins are securely clipped onto the runners before use.

Bin and tray runners are pre-lubricated,and will not need to bere-lubricatedduring their life. Do not attempt to clean grease from the runners, as this will affect their ability to function. Do not immerse runners in water.

Permanently fixed bins and trays (model RF201A only)

The freezer bins and trays in this model are permanently fixed. They cannot be removed from the freezer compartment. To clean simply wipe with a soft, damp cloth.

On vacation/holiday

Switch the ice maker to off on the interface panel (refer to page 19). Shut off the water supply to the refrigerator.

On return turn on the water supply to the refrigerator.

Dispense 10 qt (10 L) of water and discard to ensure the tank is refilled with fresh water. Turn on the ice maker (refer to page 19).

Throw away the first bin of ice cubes.

36 Refrigerator sounds

Normal refrigerator sounds

Active Smart™ refrigerators, with their excellent energy ratings and cooling performance, can produce sounds somewhat different to your old refrigerator.

Normal operational sounds include:

Fan air flow sound. Active Smart™ refrigerators have fans which change speed depending on demand. During cooling periods, such as after frequent door openings, fans circulate the cold air in the refrigerator and freezer compartments producing some air flow sound. This is quite normal.

Cracking or popping which may sound like ice coming off the evaporator. This occurs when the defrost function is operating.

Running water sound. This is the liquid refrigerant in the system and can be heard as a boiling or gurgling noise.

An audible hissing sound after closing the freezer door. This is due to the pressure difference between the warm air that has entered the cabinet and suddenly cooled, and the outside air pressure.

Other strange sounds may be heard for the following reasons:

Cabinet not level

Floor uneven or weak

Bottles or jars rattling on shelves

If this is your first refrigerator with an ice maker, you will hear occasional sounds that may be unfamiliar. They are normal ice making sounds and are not cause for concern.

The following sounds are normal with the operation of an ice maker:

Motor operation (low humming).

Running water as the ice maker and/or water tank fills.

Water valve opening and closing (hissing sound).

Ice being loosened from the ice moulding tray (cracking).

Ice dropping into bin (clunking).

Storing food in your refrigerator 37

Red meat

EN

 

Place fresh red meat on a plate and loosely cover with waxed paper, plastic wrap or foil.

Store cooked and raw meat on separate plates. This will prevent any juices lost from the raw meat from contaminating the cooked product. Delicatessen meats should be used within the recommended storage time.

Poultry

Fresh whole birds should be rinsed inside and out with cold running water. Dry and place on a plate. Cover loosely with plastic wrap or foil. Poultry pieces should also be stored this way. Whole poultry should never be stuffed until just before cooking, otherwise food poisoning may result. Cool and refrigerate cooked poultry quickly. Remove stuffing from poultry and store separately.

Fish and seafood

Whole fish and fillets should be used on the day of purchase. Until required, refrigerate on a plate loosely covered with plastic wrap, waxed paper or foil.

If storing overnight or longer, take particular care to select very fresh fish. Whole fish should be rinsed in cold water to remove loose scales and dirt and then patted dry with paper towels. Place whole fish or fillets in a sealed plastic bag.

Keep shellfish chilled at all times. Use within 1 – 2 days.

Precooked foods and leftovers

These should be stored in suitable covered containers so that the food will not dry out.

Keep for only 1 – 2 days.

Reheat leftovers only once and until steaming hot.

Fruit and vegetable bins

Although most fruit and vegetables store best at low temperatures, take care not to store the following at temperatures of less than 47°F (7°C) for long periods: citrus fruit, tropical fruit, tomatoes, cucumbers.

Undesirable changes will occur at low temperatures such as softening of the flesh, browning and/or accelerated decaying.

Do not refrigerate avocados (until they are ripe), bananas, mangoes or pepinos. If possible store fruit and vegetables separately, i.e. fruit in one bin and vegetables in the other.

Each fruit and vegetable bin has a humidity control slide that can be adjusted depending on what is stored in the bins. For more information on using the Humidity Control refer to page 26.

38 Storing food in your freezer

The use of temperatures of 0˚F (-18˚C)or colder to store food means that the food can be kept for longer periods than when refrigeration temperatures are used. This is because the growth of bacteria, moulds and yeasts are stopped, and chemical and physical reactions are severely restricted at very low temperatures.

Frozen food care

For best results: Choose only high quality foods that freeze well.

Store at 0˚F (-18˚C)or colder. Take care to maintain this low storage temperature, eg. try to avoid opening the freezer door unnecessarily. If your ice cream is soft you are running your freezer too warm.

Leave space at the top of containers, glass jars or plastic bags containing liquids or semi-solidfoods. These expand as they freeze. Usually 1” (20 – 50 mm) head space is recommended. Seal. Ideally, remove all the air from the package after food is frozen.

Packages or containers of solid foods should have the air removed from them and be sealed tightly before freezing.

Use the Freezer Chill function when freezing fresh food. This helps to speed up the freezing process, giving optimum freezing results. It is recommended that the function is activated approximately 2 hours before required. For more information refer to page 22.

Freeze immediately and as quickly as possible. Freeze only small quantities of food at any one time. For best results we recommend that only 2.2 lb (1 kg) of food be frozen per 0.9 cu.ft (25 L) of freezer storage volume at any one time. (About 7 lb (3 kg) in small freezers and 9 lb (4 kg) in larger freezers). For faster freezing in Active Smart™ models, we recommend that fresh food is placed at the top of the freezer compartment close to the air vent.

Do not pile frozen food around the fan cover. It can prevent adequate air circulation. Thaw foods preferably in a refrigerator, or using a microwave oven or multifunction oven.

Keep a constant turnover of food. Use older items of food first. Do not exceed recommended storage times.

Use good quality freezer proof packaging to maintain food quality.

If food is only covered in plastic film place inside a freezer-proofplastic bag.

Recommended freezer storage times

These times should not be exceeded.

Meat, poultry and game

EN

 

Do not try to freeze more than 2.2 lb (1 kg) meat per 0.9 cu.ft (25 L) of freezer storage volume at any one time. Meat must be frozen quickly in order to maintain its texture.

Do not stuff poultry before freezing.

Red meat can be cooked from frozen, or from the partly or completely thawed states. Remember to allow extra cooking time if cooking from frozen. Always thaw poultry completely before cooking.

Fish

Fish is best frozen commercially. If however you do want to freeze fish at home, make sure the fish is very fresh and of high quality.

Clean, scale and preferably leave whole. All fish should be wrapped in two layers of packaging as depending on the type of fish, odors and flavors can be readily transferred either to or from it. Seal well.

For best results, cook from either the frozen or partly thawed state.

Vegetables

Most vegetables freeze well, although ‘salad’ vegetables lose their crispness. Other vegetables, eg. celery, onion and tomatoes, should only

be used in cooked dished as they soften on freezing.

Freeze only high quality, mature, ready-to-eatvegetables. Sort and discard any that are damaged.

It is necessary to blanch most raw vegetables prior to freezing.

Blanching involves a short cooking period during which vegetable enzymes are destroyed. If these enzymes are not destroyed they cause undesirable physical and chemical changes during freezer storage. Vegetables can be blanched in boiling water, steam or microwave oven. If using boiling water, boil vegetables for 2 – 4 minutes and cool quickly. In general frozen vegetables are best cooked from their frozen state.

Prepared and cooked foods

Most cooked foods can be frozen but it is not recommended to freeze the following:

Cooked egg white, custards, cream fillings and milk puddings, gelatin or jelly-likedishes, mayonnaise and similar salad dressings, meringue toppings. These tend to separate on thawing.

Fruit

Choose high quality, mature, and ready to eat fruit. Preferably select varieties recommended for freezing.

Avoid unripe and over-ripefruit.

The way fruit is packed depends on how it is to be used. Fruits packed in syrup are ideal for desserts, whereas fruits packed without sugar are better used for cooking. Most fruits can be stored for 8 – 12 months.
