Defrosting
Refrigerator
The refrigerator automatically defrosts every time the
compressor stops. The water is discharged, via the
pipe, into a tray located at the back of the appliance
above the compressor, where it evaporates.
Important
To avoid defrost water overflowing into the fridge,
periodically clean the water discharge hole in the centre
of the V shaped drip collector at the back of the
refrigerator compartment behind the fruit and vegetable
drawer. Use the defrost cleaner provided which you will
find already inserted into the discharge hole.
Remember to wash the defrost cleaner in hot soapy
water at regular intervals. Dry throughly before
replacing.
