Maintenance and Cleaning

Maintenance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance of cleaning work is car-
ried out DISCONNECT the appliance from the
ELECTRICITY SUPPLY.
Internal Cleaning
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water and
bicarbonate of soda (5 ml to 0.5 litre of water). Rinse and
dry thoroughly.
Do not use detergents, abrasive powders, highly
perfumed cleaning products, wax polishes or
cleaning products containing 
bleach or alcohol.
Clean the drain hole of the water trough at regular inter-
vals and ensure that the drain hole is clear at all times. If
blocked carefully clear using a piece of flexible curtain
wire inserted into the drain outlet to remove the blockage.
Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure
they are clean and free from debris...
External Cleaning
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water.
Do NOT use abrasive products.
There are sharp edges on the underside of the
product so care should be taken when 
cleaning.
Once or twice a year dust the condenser (black grill) and
the compressor at the back of the appliance with a brush
or vacuum cleaner, as an accumulation of dust will affect
the performance of the appliance and cause excessive
electricity consumption.
Changing the Light Bulb
Should the light fail to work you can change it as below:
Disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply.
Remove the lamp cover retaining screws, then take the
lamp cover off in the direction of the arrow and the bulb
can be changed. (Type of the bulb: 230 V, 15 W, E 14
thread)
After changing the bulb replace the lamp cover, and
retaining screws and reconnect the appliance to the elec-
tricity supply.
Defrosting Your Appliance
The fridge compartment is defrosted automatically, when
the motor stops. Defrost water from the cooling plate runs
out of the drain and onto a tray on the motor compressor
where it evaporates. Droplets of water on the cooling plate
during defrosting are quite normal and will freeze on the
plate afterwards.
When the appliance is not in use
When the appliance is not in use for long periods discon-
nect from the electricity supply, empty all of the food and
clean the appliance, leaving the door ajar to prevent
unpleasant smells.

Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated room
and make sure that the air openings of the cabinet are
not obstructed.
Always leave warm food to cool down to room temper-
ature before placing in the fridge.
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long periods,
or opening the door too frequently as warm air will
enter the cabinet, and cause the compressor to often
switch on unnecessarily.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the door
from closing properly.
It is advisable to periodically clean the refrigeration
system at the back of the appliance with a duster or
vacuum cleaner.
