Instructions for installation and use

Safety a good habit to get into

ATTENTION

Read your handbook carefully since it contains instructions which will ensure safe installation, use and maintenance of your appliance.

Your Indesit Fridge Freezer is built to International standards (EN60) and has been awarded the European approval mark (IMQ) for compliance to UK electrical safety requirements. It also meets the EC standards on the prevention and elimination of radio interference (EC directive 87/308 - 02.06.89).

1.This appliance is designed to be used indoors and under no circumstances should it be installed outside.

2.The appliance should be used only by adults exclusively for storing foodstuffs in compliance with the instructions provided in the handbook. Under no circumstances should children be allowed to operate, or tamper with, this product.

3.For electrical safety, do not attempt to operate this appliance with wet hands or feet.

4.Do not operate this appliance connected to an extension lead. If a longer supply cable is required, this must be replaced with one of the same specifications in compliance with the current electrical regulations. This operation should be carried out by a qualified person. Ensure that the cable is not trapped or damaged during the installation.

5.Never pull the cable or the appliance to remove the plug from the socket.

6.Do not touch the internal cooling elements, especially if your hands are wet, since you could burn or hurt yourself. Do not eat ice cubes straight out of the freezer.

7.Before doing any cleaning, disconnect the appliance from the electricity (by pulling out the plug orturning off the general switch in your home); it is not sufficient to place the temperature regulation knob onto cut off the power.

8.Before disposing of your old appliance, remember to break or remove the lock as a safety measure to protect children who might lock themselves inside the appliance when playing.

9.If your appliance is not operating properly, before calling your after-salesservice read the chapter on “Trouble Shooting” which might help you resolve the problem. Do not attempt to repair the fault by intervening on the internal components.

10.If damaged, the power supply cord on this appliance must necessarily be replaced by our service centre because special tools are required for replacement.

Installation

To ensure that the appliance operates properly and to reduce energy consumption, it is important that the appliance is installed correctly.

Ventilation

The compressor and condenser generate heat and, therefore, need to be ventilated properly. Rooms with less than perfect ventilation are not very suited for installation of the appliance. Therefore, it should be installed in a room with an opening (window or French window) that provide the appropriate amount of air re-circulation.It is also important that the room not be too humid.

During installation, make sure not to cover or obstruct the grates that allow for proper ventilation of the appliance. For proper ventilation of the appliance, you must leave:

-a space of at least 10 cm between the top part and any cabinets above it;

-a space of at least 5 cm between the sides of the appliance and any adjacent cabinets/walls.

Away from Heat

Avoid positioning the appliance in a place where it is directly exposed to sunlight or near an oven, cook top or the like.

Level

The appliance must be level. If the floor is not level, the adjustable foot located in front can be used to level the appliance.

Electrical Connection and Earthing

Before proceeding with the electrical connection, make sure that the voltage indicated on the rating plate, located at the bottom left near the vegetable crisper, corresponds to the mains voltage in your home and that the socket is fitted with a standard earthing wire in accordance with safety standards for 46/90 systems. If the socket is not fitted with an earthing wire, the manufacturer will not be held liability for any damages and or injuries arising out of the use of the appliance. Do not use multiple sockets or adapters.

Insufficient power?

The electrical socket must be able to handle the maximum power load of the appliance, which is indicated on the rating plate located at the bottom left next to the vegetable crisper.

Before making the electrical connection ...

After the appliance has been delivered, place it in the vertical upright position and wait at least 3 hours before inserting the plug into the socket in order to ensure that it functions properly.

Electrical connection

Your appliance is now supplied with a 13 amp fused plug that can be plugged into a 13 amp socket for immediate use. Before using the appliance please read the instructions below.

WARNING - THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED. THE FOLLOWING OPERATIONS SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.

Replacing the fuse:

When replacing a faulty fuse, a 13 amp ASTA approved fuse to BS 1362 should always be used, and the fuse cover refitted. If the fuse cover is lost, the plug must not be used until a replacement is obtained.

Replacement fuse covers:

If a replacement fuse cover is fitted, it must be of the correct colour as indicated by the coloured marking or the colour that is embossed in words on the base of the plug. Replacements can be obtained directly from your nearest Service Depot.

Removing the plug:

If your appliance has a non-rewireablemoulded plug and you should wish to remove it to add a cable extension or tore-routethe mains cable through partitions, units etc., please ensure that either:

-the plug is replaced by a fused 13 amp re-wireableplug bearing the BSI mark of approval

or:

-the mains cable is wired directly into a 13 amp cable outlet, controlled by a switch, (in compliance with BS 5733) which is accessible without moving the appliance.

Disposing of the plug:

Ensure that before disposing of the plug itself, you make the pins unusable so that it cannot be accidentally inserted into a socket. Instructions for connecting cable to an alternative plug:

Important: the wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:

Green & Yellow

- Earth

Blue

- Neutral

Brown

- Live

As the colours of the wires in the mains lead may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:

Connect Green & Yellow wire to terminal marked “E” oror coloured Green or Green & Yellow.

Connect Brown wire to terminal marked “L” or coloured Red. Connect Blue wire to terminal marked “N” or coloured Black.

If a 13 amp plug (BS 1363) is used it must be fitted with a 13 amp fuse. A 15 amp plug must be protected by a 15 amp fuse, either in the plug or adaptor or at the distribution board. If you are in any doubt about the electrical supply to your machine, consult a qualified electrician before use.

What Not to Store in the Refrigerator

Garlic (transmits odour), onions and leeks. Bananas (they will turn black).

Citrus fruits.

Potatoes and root vegetables (store in dark, dry places).

-Air in the refrigerator circulates naturally so that colder, heavier air tends to descend towards the bottom. This is why meat and fish should be stored just above the crisper.

-Remember to follow our instructions on the storage life of foods: If not stored correctly, even the freshest food will deteriorate quite quickly.

-Contrary to popular belief, cooked foods do not keep longer than fresh food.

-Do not store liquids in unsealed containers since this will increase the humidity and lead to the formation of frost in the refrigerator.

Energy Saving Tips

- Install the Appliance Correctly

This means that the appliance should be installed away from heat sources or direct sunlight in a well ventilated room.

- Correct Temperature Settings

Set the refrigerator temperature knob to one of the middle settings. Very cold temperature settings will not only consume a great deal of energy but will neither improve nor lengthen the storage life of the food. Excessively cold temperatures may ruin vegetables, cold cuts and cheese.

- Do Not Overfill Your Appliance

Remember that proper storage of food requires good air circulation. Overfilling your appliance will hamper proper air circulation and overwork the compressor.

- Keep the Door Closed

Open the refrigerator only when necessary; remember that every time you open the door most of the cold air will be lost. To bring the temperature back to the proper level, the motor must run for a considerable amount of time, consuming a substantial amount of energy.

- Check the Seal on the Door

Keep the seal clean and soft so that it fits tightly against the door to ensure that no cold air is lost.

- Never Put Food in the Refrigeror while Still Hot

A container of hot food in the refrigerator will increase the temperature significantly; allow food to cool to room temperature before storing.

Caring for Your Appliance

Before doing any cleaning, disconnect the appliance from the electricity (by pulling out the plug or turning off the general switch in your home).

Defrosting

The evaporator defrosts automatically during operation; the defrost water is collected by the conveyor and is evaporated externally automatically.

Clean the defrost water drain hole periodically (see fig. 1) to prevent the water from collecting on the bottom of the refrigerator instead of flowing out.

Fig. 1

Cleaning and Maintenance

-Your appliance is manufactured with hygienic, odourless materials. To preserve these characteristics, always use sealed containers to store foods in order to prevent spills, stains and the formation of difficult to remove odours.

-Only use a water and bicarbonate solution to clean the applianc. Clean the internal and exterior of your appliance with a sponge soaked in a warm water and sodium bicarbonate solution, which is also a good disinfectant. If you do not have any sodium bicarbonate at home, use a neutral soap.

-What not to use: Do not use abrasive detergents, bleach or detergents containing ammonia. Never use solvent based products.

-All removable parts can be cleaned by soaking them in hot soapy water or detergent. Remember to dry them thoroughly before replacing them.

-Discontinued use of the appliance: If the appliance is not in use for any length of time, remember to clean the interior and dry thoroughly, leaving the door open to prevent the formation of odours and mould.

-Replacing the light bulb. Unscrew the burned out bulb and replace it with another bulb with a wattage no higher than 15 Watt (fig. 2).

Trouble Shooting

The Refrigerator does not Work

Check that:

The mains switch in your home is on;

The plug is inserted correctly in the socket;

The socket is working; to check this connect the appliance;

To another socket in the room.

The Appliance does not Refrigerate Properly

Check that:

The door is shut properly and that the door seal is not damaged;

The thermostat temperature knob is on the correct setting;

The refrigerator has not been overfilled.

Food in the Refrigerator is too Cold

Check that:

The thermostat knob is on the correct setting.

The Motor Runs Continuously

Check whether:

The door is not closed properly or has been left open;

The room temperature is not too high.

The Appliance is Noisy

Check whether:

The appliance is perfectly level;

The appliance has been installed between cabinets or other objects that vibrate or make noise;

Remember that the refrigerant in the cooling circuit causes a slight bubbling sound, even when the compressor is not running (this is quite normal).

If after all the checks, the appliance still does not operate or the problem persists, call the nearest Service Centre and inform them of: the type of problem, the abbreviation of the model name (Mod.) and the relative numbers (S/N) written on the rating plate located at the bottom left next to the vegetable crisper (see examples in the figures below).
