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 appliance is regulated by
a thermostat with 6 temperature positions and an
ÒOFFÓ (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 control regulates the temperature
both within the fridge and the freezer compartment.
The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature
inside the appliance depends on the following
Ð room 
Р how often the door is opened
Р how much food is stored
Р position of the appliance
Fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; 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.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & poultry): wrap in
polythene bags and place on the glass shelf above
the salad drawers.
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 salad drawers.
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. 
To Start the Appliance
Allow the appliance to stand for 2 hours after
Plug in the appliance and switch on at the mains
supply. Open the fridge door. Turn the thermostat
control to a midway setting (3-4) and adjust the slider
control to a midway position between ÒcoldÓ and
ÒcoldestÓ. Leave the appliance for approximately 4
hours for the correct temperature to be reached
before placing food inside.
To switch off the appliance turn the thermostat
control to position ÒOÓ
Use of an air circulation slider
Your appliance has an air circulation slider control
situated at the rear of the fridge compartment, which
controls the amount of cold air circulated through the
fridge compartment.
When the ambient temperature is between 10¡C and
16¡C, the slider control should be in the ÒcoldÓ
When the ambient temperature is above 16¡C the
slider control should be midway between ÒcoldÓ and
When the ambient temperature is very high (i.e. hot
summer days) position the slider control to ÒcoldestÓ.
