Clean the interior surfaces and all internal accessories with lukewarm water with a little baking soda added (about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to  1 liter of water) and a soft cloth. This will remove any dust from transit and storage and help remove the typical smell of a brand new product. Dry thoroughly.
    CAUTION: Do not use harsh or abrasive detergents or powders as these will damage the finish. After washing the interior parts and surfaces, open the fridge door for ventilation of the internal compartments.

Getting Started (Cont.)

Installation
Space requirements

  • Door opening: Place the unit so there is enough space for the door to open (Fig. 1).
  • Clearances: Ensure that air can circulate freely around the back of the cabinet, which is necessary to cool the compressor and condenser. Allow at least 10cm clear space at the back and sides of the unit.
  • Overhanging wall units: To ensure the best performance, if the appliance is positioned below an overhanging wall unit, the minimum distance between the top of the cabinet and the wall unit must be at least 10cm. Ideally,  however, the appliance should not be positioned below overhanging wall units.STIRLING 158L Bar Fridge fig 1

Leveling

The appliance must be installed level in order to work properly. If the unit is not level, the doors and magnetic seal alignments will not be covered properly.

  •  To level the unit, adjust one of the leveling feet at the base of the cabinet (Fig. 2).STIRLING 158L Bar Fridge Levelling

Electrical connection

  • WARNING! It must be possible to disconnect the appliance from the mains power supply; the plug must therefore be easily accessible after installation.
  • Before plugging in your new fridge, let it stand upright for at least 4 hours. This will allow the refrigerant gases to settle into the compressor and reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system.
  • The appliance must be earthed. The plug of the power supply cord is equipped with a contact for this purpose. Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third (earth) prong from the power cord. If the plug does not fit your outlet, consult a licensed electrician for advice to have the outlet changed.
  • Plug the unit into a dedicated, properly installed and earthed wall outlet. Ensure that your outlet voltage and circuit frequency correspond to the voltage stated on the appliance rating label.
  • Secure the power supply cord behind the unit. Do not leave it exposed or dangling to prevent injury and accidental disconnection from the power supply.
  • Adjust the temperature control as described on page 11.
  • When first starting up, and after a period out of use, allow the unit to cool down on the coldest setting for at least 4 hours before placing perishable food in the fridge.

Instructions

Thermostat control

  •  The control for regulating the temperature in the bar fridge is located on the upper right-hand side of the cabinet (Fig. 3). The higher the number on the dial, the colder the temperature in the refrigerator compartment  “1” is the warmest setting and “5” is the coldest setting).STIRLING 158L Bar Fridge Product Thermostat control
  • The first time you turn the unit on, set the thermostat control to the coldest position (5). After approximately four hours, adjust it to the setting that best suits your needs – a middle setting (at positions 3–4) should be appropriate in most cases for general operation, which will avoid over-cooling and damaging the compressor.
  • To turn the appliance off, first turn the thermostat control to the minimum position [ 0 ] , which will cut off power to the compressor, then disconnect the power supply cord from the wall outlet in order to shut off the power to the unit.

NOTE: The unit may not work at the set temperature on particularly hot days, or if the door is opened too frequently. To ensure efficient operation, do not open the door unnecessarily or for prolonged periods of time.
NOTE: If the unit is unplugged, turned off or has lost power, you must wait 10 minutes before restarting the unit. If you attempt to restart before this time delay, you may damage the compressor.

IMPORTANT!
Do not leave the appliance to run at position “5” for prolonged periods of time as this will damage the compressor and the food inside the chiller compartment.

Instructions (Cont.)

The bar fridge interior The fridge compartment is suitable for short-term storage of fresh food. The temperature inside the fridge compartment varies depending on the amount of food stored and the frequency of door opening. It is low enough to limit some bacterial growth, but it is not suitable for the long-term storage of perishable foods.

  • The walls of the fridge are equipped with a series of runners so that you can position the two glass shelves to suit your individual storage requirements (Fig. 4: A).
  • The door balconies are suitable for the storage of food and drink bottles, cans, and jars(Fig. 4: B). They may be removed for cleaning: gradually pull a balcony up until it is free, then reposition it after cleaning.
  •  The chiller compartment (Fig. 4: C) is designed for short-term storage of some commercially frozen foods,  keeping them at a temperature of around -6°C. This storage area is not a true freezer; it works best when the food is already frozen. Do not store bottled beverages in the chiller compartment as liquids may expand when frozen causing the bottle to break and potentially damage the appliance. The chiller compartment should be defrosted approximately once a month, or before the frost on the walls of the compartment reaches about  5mm in thickness. Defrosting is easy with the defrost button; see page 17 for instructions.
  • The drip tray sits under the chiller compartment (Fig. 4: D). It is designed to catch melting ice during semi-automatic defrosting. The defrost water will eventually evaporate.
  • The easy-to-pull-out crisper drawer (Fig. 4: E) is covered with a glass shelf (Fig. 4: F) to help you keep your fruit and vegetables fresh and crisp. STIRLING 158L Bar Fridge drip tray 2.

Food storage tips

  •  In order to maintain good cooling efficiency and save energy, do not open the doors for too long or too often.
  • Do not overload the fridge.
  •  Keep enough space around items for cold airflow.
  • Do not block ventilation openings.
  •  Do not place items directly against the back wall.
  •  Let hot food cool down to room temperature before storing them in the fridge. Otherwise, the cooling capacity will be affected and power consumption increased. Hot items may also affect the plastic parts inside the appliance.
  • If necessary, wipe containers clean and dry before storage in the refrigerator.
  • Thaw frozen foods in the fridge compartment to ensure safety and save energy.
  •  Use sealed containers or storage bags to prevent food from drying out, losing its taste or taking on aromas from other foods.
  • Cover cooked foods and store them on any shelf in the fridge compartment.
  • Store butter and cheese in airtight containers or wrap them thoroughly.
  • Make sure milk bottles are properly closed before storage on a door balcony.
  • Do not keep bananas, potatoes, onions, and garlic in the refrigerator.

Storing food in the chiller compartment

  • Do not store food uncovered in the chiller compartment.
  • Do not push food together too much, leave some space for air to circulate around each item. Do not place packages directly against the back wall.
  • Do not place hot foods or liquids which may evaporate in the chiller compartment.
  •  Once you have opened a packet of frozen food, rewrap it airtight to prevent surface evaporation which causes drying or freezer burn.
  • Do not store bottles in the chiller compartment as they may shatter. Do not store carbonated liquids such as bottles of fizzy drinks in the chiller compartment as the container could explode under pressure and damage the appliance.
  • Do not refreeze food once it has been defrosted. If it has thawed accidentally, use it up immediately or throw it away.
    CAUTION! Do not remove items from the chiller compartment if your hands are damp or wet as this could cause skin abrasions.

Energy-saving tips

  •  Place the fridge in the coolest area of the room, away from heat-producing appliances and out of direct sunlight.
  • Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing them into the fridge. Overloading the fridge forces the compressor to run longer.
  • Wrap foods properly and wipe containers dry before placing them in the fridge. This cuts down on frost build-up inside the fridge.
  • Do not line any fridge storage bin with aluminum foil, wax paper or paper towels. Liners interfere with cold air circulation, reducing cooling efficiency.
  • Position food so that air can circulate freely around it.
  •  Do not leave the fridge door open for longer than required.

Power failure
Most power failures are corrected within a few hours and should not affect the temperature inside your fridge if you minimize the number of times the door is opened. However, if the power is going to be off for a longer period of time, you need to take proper steps to protect your food.

Going away?

  •  Short vacation: Leave the fridge operating during vacations of less than a month.
  •  Long vacation: If you are not going to use the bar fridge for longer periods, remove all food and unplug the power cord. Clean and dry the interior thoroughly. To prevent odor and mold growth, leave the door open slightly, blocking it open, if necessary.
    WARNING: Restrict children’s access to the room with the open fridge to avoid
    creating a child entrapment risk.

Moving the fridge

  •  Remove all food from inside the fridge, securely tape down the shelves and trays, and tape the door shut. Turn the leveling feet up to the base to avoid damage.
  •  Protect the outside of the unit with a blanket or similar soft material and make sure the fridge stays secure in the upright position during transportation.

Other Useful Information

Defrosting the bar fridge
This appliance will generate frost in the chiller compartment, especially if the fridge is located in an environment with high humidity or if the fridge door is opened frequently. And if the frost layer is getting too thick, it will affect the appliance’s cooling performance and energy consumption. It is therefore important to defrost the chiller compartment regularly.
Do not let frost build-up to more than 5mm thickness. We recommend you defrost the chiller compartment once every month, or more often if the door is opened frequently or the appliance is located in a high humidity environment.

  •  Press the defrost button for an immediate cut-off of the cooling system.
  • Remove food items from the fridge and keep them temporarily in another fridge or cooler bag.
  •  During defrosting, the ice melts into the drip tray and will automatically evaporate over time.
  • When the defrosting process is complete, the cooling system will restart automatically.
  • Defrosting may take a few hours. To speed up the process, put bowls of hot (not boiling) water in the appliance.

WARNING!

  •  Never use sharp or metallic tools to scrape off frost as it may damage the cooling system. To scrape ice off surfaces, use a plastic scraper.
  •  Do not use boiling water to accelerate defrosting because it may damage any plastic parts.
