Fridge - Page 6

6 Use Fridge • Never put liquids in the refrigerator uncovered. • Never put hot foods in the refrigerator. Warm food should be allowed to cool to room temperature before being put into the refrigerator. • Nothing should rest against the rear wall of the refrigerator, as this will cause frost and possible condensation problems which will be difficult to remove. • Make sure food is clean and any extra water is wiped away before putting into the fridge. • Wrap or cover food before putting into the fridge. This will help prevent the loss of moisture, keep food fresh and avoid unpleasa..

Do not attempt to freeze more than the maximum amount. - Page 7

7 • Follow the instructions on the food packaging for storage of frozen food. If no information is provided, foods should not be stored for more than three months after the purchase date. • Store food in small packages (ideally less than 2.5kg). This reduces the freezing time and improves the quality of the food after thawing. • Wrap food before putting into the freezer. To stop the wrapping sticking together, ensure it is dry. • Label the food before freezing with information including type of food and dates of storage and expiry. • Once food is thawed, it must not be refrozen un..

Storage - Page 8

8 Storage The fridge section is for short term food storage. Although the temperature can be maintained between 0-10˚C, extended periods of food storage is not recommended. As the cold air circulates within the fridge, the temperature can vary between the different sections. As such, foods should be stored in different sections according to type. Section 6 is the coldest part of the fridge. 1. Butter 2. Food in jars and bottles 3. Drinks , e.g. milk 4. Cooked food 5. Yogurts and cheese 6. Fresh meat and fish 7. Fruit and vegetables The fridge shelves can be moved according to the storag..

9 To move the shelf, lift up the front section and then pull it outwards. To replace, slide the shelf back into the slot, and the lower the front section. The salad crisper is designed with a humidity control to ensure fruit and vegetables last longer. This can be adjusted by the slider at the front right of the salad crisper. Fully opening the slider control to high humidity restricts the amount of dry air entering the crisper from the fridge compartment, extending the life of items such as lettuce and cucumber. Open (fully left) = Low. Closed (fully right) = High.

Fitting the product into the cabinet - Page 19

19 Fitting the product into the cabinet 1. Remove the gasket protection pieces: These are on the hinge-side edge of each door and prevent excessive seal compression during transport. They are required later during the installation process (step 6). Remove the screws and gasket protectors from each door (fig. 6) and proceed with the installation. Cover caps are provided, in a polythene bag, to fill the holes where these protectors were fitted; take care when inserting these. 2. Fit the top fixing brackets: Secure the two metal fixing brackets to the top of the product using two screws f..

20 4. Fit the magnetic seal strips: Two magnetic seals are supplied to fill the gap between the cabinet and the edge of the products. These simply fit against the left and right edges of the fridge chassis. To make it easier, it is useful to apply a little sticky tape to the top and bottom of each strip to prevent curling. Note that the seal may need to be cut to length. 5. Fit the width spacers: For cabinets with 15mm thickness sides a small spacer is required to be fit. The spacer is shown in Fig. 9 and marked as ‘ S ’. This ensures perfect alignment when installed. There are four ..

Position the product in the housing: The product can now be pushed into the housing unit, ensuring that the two guide pieces are fitted in the hinges and the guide is fitted to the middle fixing bracket. When the guides (on both sides) are flush against the front face of the cabinet sides the product is at the correct depth in the unit. At this stage ensure that the product is centrally aligned within the housing and then remove the guide pieces (‘ G ’ in Figs. 8 and 9) from the hinges. Do this by opening the appliance doors and removing them. Check too that the magnetic seal ..

Measuring and drawing a centre line with pencil can help here, depending upon where you want the decor door to sit. If you want an offset for example, then you have to factor this in to your measurements . Align the holes in the centre of the fixing plate with the centre line, using the guides to help you (Fig. 19). Secure the plate in position using wood screws of appropriate length. Please take care to ensure the screws selected will not punch through ..

Adjusting the decor doors - Page 28

28 Adjusting the decor doors The position of the decor doors can be adjusted on all 3 axis by following the guide below. If the range of adjustment detailed below is not enough then the refrigerator is likely not located correctly in the cabinet and/or the upper decor fixing plates are incorrectly positioned. We recommend another person holds the decor door during these steps. Horizontal Adjustment (Y): 1. Loosen the upper fixing plate nuts using a 10mm spanner (‘ Y ’ in Fig 21). These are on both sides of the fixing plate. 2. Slide the decor door and/or fixing plate left or right a..
