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.
Fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong flavour. Do not cover the shelves with any protective material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which may obstruct the air circulation through them. To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are some more useful hints: Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & chicken or poultry): wrap in polythene bags and place on top of the salad bin. Meat can only be stored safely in this way for one or two days at the most. Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly cleaned and placed in the bottom salad bin. Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible. Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be stored in the bottle rack on the door. The walls of the refrigerator are equipped with runners so that shelves can be positioned as desired.
Setting the temperature
The temperature inside the refrigerator is regulated by a thermostat control knob with 6 temperature positions and one Ã‡OFFÃˆ (O) position. Position 1 = minimum coldness Position 6 = maximum coldness Turn the thermostat control knob to the required position. An intermediate position is usually the most suitable, although the temperature will be affected by: Â¥ Room temperature Â¥ How often the door is opened Â¥ How much food is stored Â¥ Position of the appliance In determining the correct temperature control setting all these factors have to be considered and some experimentation may be necessary. When altering the temperature setting, allow 24 hours for the temperature to stablise before making further changes. 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. If you wish to return to a lower temperature, turn the thermostat knob to a higher number, however you should turn the setting lower occasionally to allow automatic defrosting.
Normal Operating Sounds
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils or tubing at the rear, to the cooling plate. When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being pumped round, and you will hear a whirring sound or pulsating noise from the compressor. A thermostat controls the compressor, and you will hear a faint Ã”clickÃ• when the thermostat cuts in and out.
