Genuine Toshiba owner's manual. Couldn't really ask for more. And written in understandable English in contrast to a few recent experiences I have had with manuals for other equipment other than Toshiba but made in China and written in "Chinglish"!

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. 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 crisper. 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 with 6 temperature positions and one Â«OFFÂ» (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: - room temperature - how often the door is opened - how much food is stored - position of the appliance Important If the fridge is not defrosting correctly, it is possible that because a very low temperature has been selected, the motor is working continuously, which prevents the defrost cycle from operating. To ensure correct defrosting, a lower number should be selected on the thermostat and you should notice that the motor cuts out from time to time, which is correct. If you wish to return to a lower temperature, turn the thermostat to a higher number, how ever you should turn the setting lower occasionally to allow automatic defrosting.
Positioning the door shelves
To permit storage of food packages of various sizes, the door shelves can be adjusted in height. To do this proceed as in the figure. The top shelf can be removed for easier cleaning.
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 & wild fowl): wrap in polythene bags and place on top of the salad crisper. 5
