Information on No-frost technology

All traditional refrigerators that are not equipped with No-frost technology have to be stopped for a certain period in order to defrost the snow and ice formation inside the freezer compartment. However, removing the foods that have to be kept cool, wiping up the defrosted and water spilled at that time generally turns into troubles. Additionally, icing inside the freezer adversely effects the cooling performance of the appliance.

Now, refrigerators manufactured under the No-frost technology present a definite solution against these problems. The air inside the refrigerator is permanently recirculated by a fan as it leaves behind its moist and heat, thanks to the evaporator

f i t t e d b e h i n d t h e d e e p f r e e z e compartment.

cooling and freezing compartments from many points, forming a homogeneous distribution and is circulated as well. Thus, snow and ice formation is avoided in Nofrost refrigerators, while they remain dry and cool even during the hottest summer days.

or loss resulting from ungrounded

operation.

10. Ensure that the power supply voltage complies with the figures stated on the tag inside the fridge compartment.

The operational voltage of your refrigerator is 10 Amperes. Connect the power cord to a grounded plug bearing a current rate of 10 Amperes.

11. At the end of the functional life of your appliance containing cyclopentane gas in the insulation foam and perhaps gas R600a (isobutane) in the refrigeration circuit the latter should made safe before being sent to the dump.

For this operation, please contact your dealer or the Local Organisation in charge of waste disposal.

Operating your

Ice Making

refrigerator

 

Coldness adjustment

Your refrigerator consists of two compartments. The first compartment is the freezer, and the second one is the

fridge or fresh food storage

compartment. Compartment temperatures can be adjusted via thermostats concerned.

Turn the thermostat knobs to their normal

(MED) position. Turn the knobs as required if the compartment temperatures are too high or too low.

Temperature knob for the freezer

compartment:

MED-MAX (High): Is used to freezer foods quickly and to obtain ice immediately.

MED (Medium): Is used for normal use and to store frozen foods for long periods.

MIN-MED (Low): Is used only to keep ice cubes frozen and to save energy.

During hot seasons, when the "freezer" knob is turned to "MAX" position, your fridge will operate for elongated period. The thermostat position should be brought to its initial position when the freezer compartment is cooled sufficiently.

To make ice cubes, fill the ice trays with water and place them in the freezer. To remove the ice cubes first run water on the tray, then hold from both sides and twist gently. Hence, ice cubes will be poured into the container.

MED-MAX (High) : is used to increase

the cooling rate.

Chiller compartment

This compartment is used to thaw frozen foods (meat, fish chicken, etc.) and to store foods without freezing for short periods. The temperature inside the compartment is about 0 ° C.

The lid of the chiller compartment opens automatically when you pull the compartment towards yourself.

Operational warning

1. Avoid spilling water (or any liquid) to the back side of the appliance.

2. Do not leave the door of the refrigerator open for extended periods. This will decrease the cooling efficiency and will increase power consumption.

3. Do not store inflammable materials, explosives or chemicals and deodorants and cosmetic products in which propellant gases are used, in the refrigerator.

4. Do not allow children to hang on the refrigerator door. Do not leave children in the vicinity of an operating refrigerator.

5. Do not continue to operate the appliance if no proper operation is obtained or if a trouble occurs.

Immediately unplug the appliance and call for the Authorized Service.

Tips for storing foods in the

refrigerator:

• Never place hot food in your refrigerator.

Allow hot food to cool down to room temperature.

• Store vegetables and fruits in the vegetable drawer at the bottom of the fridge compartment.

• Store foods with strong odors (melon, strawberry, fish, etc.) in containers with a lid.

Freezer compartment:

It is possible to maintain the freshness and flavor of foods if they are stored in accordance with the following instructions.

Place the foods you want to freeze on the shelf and then place them on the surface of the freezer or in the door rack.

Do not place the foods you want

to freeze near the foods already frozen.

Do not place unwrapped, open foods in the freezer compartment.

Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment; they may break when frozen.

It is recommended to store big amounts of food in the form of single use portions.

Do not refreeze the food that has been thawed. This causes loss of taste and nutrition.

Changing the door
