  • Original packaging and foam materials should be kept for future transportations or moving.

Using your refrigerator

beko-BCHA275K4SN-Built-In-Refrigerator-4

Thermostat setting button
The interior temperature of your refrigerator changes for the following reasons:

  • Seasonal temperatures.
  • Frequent opening of the door and leaving the door open for long periods.
  • Food put into the refrigerator without cooling down to the room temperature.
  • The location of the refrigerator in the room (e.g. exposing to sunlight).
  • You may adjust the varying interior temperature due to such reasons by using the thermostat. Numbers around the thermostat button (MIN to MAX) indicates the cooling degrees, MAX being the coldest position.
  • If the ambient temperature is higher than 32°C, turn the thermostat button to maximum position.
  • If the ambient temperature is lower than 25°C, turn the thermostat button to minimum position.

Fridge compartment
Fridge compartment performs full-automatic defrosting. Water drops and a frosting up to 7-8 mm can occur on the inner rear wall of the fridge compartment while your refrigerator cools down. Such formation is normal as a result of the cooling system. The frost formation is defrosted by performing automatic defrosting with certain intervals thanks to the automatic defrosting system of the rear wall. User is not required to scrape the frost or remove the water drops. Water resulting from the defrosting passes from the water collection groove and flows into the evaporator through the drain pipe and evaporates here by itself. Check regularly to see if the drain pipe is clogged or not and clear it with the stick in the hole when necessary.

Freezer compartment
The freezer compartment defrosts automatically.

Warnings!
The fan inside the freezer compartment circulates cold air. Never insert any object through the guard. Do not allow children to play with the freezer fan. Never store products that contain inflammable propellant gas (e.g. dispensers, spray cans etc. or explosive substances. Don’t cover the shelves with any protective materials, which may obstruct air circulation. Do not allow children to play with appliance or tamper with the controls. Do not obstruct the freezer fan guard to ensure that you obtain the best possible performance from your appliance.

HarvestFresh
Fruits and vegetables stored in crispers illuminated with the HarvestFresh technology preserve their vitamin content (vitamin A and C) for a longer time thanks to the blue, green, red lights and dark cycles, which simulate a day cycle. If you open the door of the refrigerator during the dark period of the HarvestFresh technology, the refrigerator will automatically detect this and enable the blue, green or red light to illuminate the crisper for your convenience. After you have closed the door of the refrigerator, the dark period will continue, representing the night time in a day cycle.

Maintenance and cleaning

  • Never use gasoline, benzene or similar substances for cleaning purposes.
  • We recommend that you unplug the appliance before cleaning.
  • Never use any sharp abrasive instrument, soap, household cleaner, detergent and wax polish for cleaning.
  • Use lukewarm water to clean the cabinet of your refrigerator and wipe it dry.
  • Use a damp cloth wrung out in a solution of one teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to one pint of water to clean the interior and wipe it dry.
  • Make sure that no water enters the lamp housing and other electrical items.
  • If your refrigerator is not going to be used for a long period of time, unplug the power cable, remove all food, clean it and leave the door ajar.
  • Check door seals regularly to ensure they are clean and free from food particles
  • To remove door racks, remove all the contents and then simply push the door rack upwards from the base.
  • Never use cleaning agents or water that contain chlorine to clean the outer surfaces and chromium coated parts of the product. Chlorine causes corrosion on such metal surfaces
