OPERATION
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 «OFF» (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
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.
Low Room Temperature Switch 
When the room temperature is + 16° C  or less, the
Low Room Temperature Switch, located next to the
thermostat control knob, must be switched on to
maintain the correct temperatures inside the fridge
and freezer compartments.
Please note that in this setting the interior light will
remain on, even if the door is closed.
No damage can be caused by leaving the switch in
this position for any period of time (see page 10 Low
ambient operation). However should the temperature
rise above 16°C remember to turn the switch off
again.
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.
The freezer compartment
The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for
storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing
fresh foods.
Freezing fresh food
It is not necessary to adjust the thermostat setting
when freezing fresh food. Depress the ambient
switch at least 24 hours before loading food to be
frozen.
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.
Important
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 “Hints & Tips”).
