Before using

Remove all securing tapes. Wash inside the appliance with lukewarm water and bicarbonate of soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water).

Do not use soap or detergent as the smell may linger. Dry thoroughly.

Setting the temperature

The temperature inside the refrigerator is regulated by a thermostat with 6 temperature positions and one ÇOFFÈ (O) position.

Position 1 = minimum coldness

Position 6 = maximum coldness

Turn the thermostat dial to the required position.

The intermediate position is usually the most suitable (3-4).

The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the following factors:

Ðroom temperature

Ðhow often the door is opened

Ðhow much food is stored

Ðposition of the appliance

Before using Important

During prolonged periods of abnormally hot weather, if the thermostat is set on too high a number, the cooling system may operate continuously and the fridge cooling plate may not defrost. Turning the knob to a lower number will cause the automatic defrosting to resume.

The freezer compartment

The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing fresh foods.

Freezing fresh food

To freeze fresh foods it is not necessary to change the setting of the thermostat knob.

However, for a quicker freezing operation, turn the thermostat knob to the coldest setting; but remember that, in this condition the refrigerator compartment temperature might drop below 0¡ C.

If this occurs reset thermostat knob to a warmer setting.

In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 3 kg. of fresh food.

Place the food to be frozen on the shelf of the freezer as this is the coldest part.


In the event of a power cut do not open the door. The food in the freezer will not be affected if the power cut is short and if the freezer is full. Should the food begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must not be re-frozen. (See ÒHints & TipsÓ).

Storage of frozen food

When first starting-up or after a period of non use, before putting the products in the compartment let the appliance run for at least two hours on the coldest setting, then turn the thermostat knob to the normal opertion position.

Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the manufacturer.

Finally, do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than is absolutely necessary.


Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks etc.), in the freezer compartment.

Ice Iollies, if consumed immediately after removal from the freezer, can cause low temperature skin burns.

Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or Òfrost/freezer burnsÓ.
