USING THE APPLIANCE FOR THE FIRST TIME
Before using the appliance for the first time, you should proceed as follows: carefully unpack the appliance and remove all packaging material and any promotional stickers. Keep the packaging (plastic bags, polystyrene and cardboard) out of the reach of children. After unpacking the appliance, carefully check it for external damage that may have occurred during transport. Place the appliance on a sturdy, flat surface and make sure there is enough space all around for sufficient ventilation.
A minimum space of 5 cm is required between the appliance and the surrounding walls. In this way the appliance is able to release heat properly, cool well and function in an energy efficient way.
- You can use the adjustable feet to the left and right to level the appliance.
- Turn the adjustable feet clockwise to lower the appliance.
- Turn the adjustable feet counter-clockwise to raise the appliance.
Do not place the appliance near heat sources such as central heating or a stove. Do take note of the climate class of the appliance. When placed in a room that is too cold, the refrigerator will not function properly.
After placing the appliance, leave it for at least 3 hours before inserting the plug in the socket.
First clean the interior of the appliance. Use warm soapy water with, for instance, washing-up liquid, all-purpose cleaner or soda. Wipe the inside of the appliance after cleaning with clean water and properly wipe everything dry. Leave the appliance to dry for 1 to 2 hours.
The control unit of the appliance is located on the inside. Check that the thermostat is off . Check that the voltage corresponds with the voltage stated on the information plate and insert the plug in the socket.
Adjusting the temperature
By means of the thermostat you are able to switch on the appliance and change the temperature in the refrigerator.
The possible positions of the thermostat:
|0||no cooling, now power|
|1||Maximum temperature, the least cold|
|7||minimum temperature, the most cold|
Set the temperature with the thermostat knob and select a position between 1 and 7. We recommend setting the appliance to position 3-4. The appliance will now cool continuously until the set temperature has been reached. Allow the appliance to reach the set temperature, before filling it with food. Usually this will take 2 to 3 hours. After that, you can set the thermostat to the required position and fill the appliance with food.
To switch off the appliance, set the thermostat to the  position and remove the plug from the socket.
Recommended temperature setting
The ambient temperature affects the operation of the compressor. To prevent the compressor from running continuously (in the summer) or not switching on at all (in the winter), we recommend adjusting the thermostat to the ambient temperature.
|Setting of the thermostat||Position 2-4||Position 4-5||Position 5-6|
The ambient temperature, the frequency of opening the door and the position of the appliance have an effect on the temperature in the appliance. Take this into account when setting the thermostat.
- Do not place hot food in the appliance.
- You should never place hazardous, highly flammable or explosive substances such as alcohol, acetone or petrol in the appliance, because there will be a hazard of explosion.
- Carefully package meat and fish to prevent unpleasant smells.
- Do not place food against the rear wall of the appliance.
- Leave sufficient space between the different foods, to allow the air to circulate properly.
- Do not leave the door open for longer than necessary
- A high ambient temperature will have a negative effect on the energy consumption. Direct sunlight and other heat sources near the appliance also have a negative effect.
- Keep ventilation holes free. Covered and dirty holes cause a higher energy consumption. Ensure sufficient space around the larder, so that a proper ventilation and air flow around the appliance is possible.
- Do not open the door of the appliance more often than necessary and leave the door open as briefly as possible.
- The distance between the shelves and the rear wall ensures a free air circulation. Do not place food against the rear wall.
- Set the thermostat to a lower setting if circumstances allow.
- Allow cooked food that you want to store in the appliance to cool down to room temperature before placing it in the appliance.
- Frost or ice will increase power consumption. Therefore, these should be removed regularly once they are 3 to 5 mm thick.
- A door rubber that does not close properly could increase the power consumption. Therefore, have it replaced by a skilled person in time.
- If the instructions are not observed, this could lead to a higher power consumption.
Observe the following instructions to prevent food from getting contaminated
- When the door remains open for a longer period of time, the temperature in the compartments of the appliance could rise significantly.
- Clean surfaces that could come in contact with food and regularly clean accessible discharge systems.
- Store raw meat and raw fish in suitable packaging in the refrigerator, so they cannot come in contact with other food or leak liquid on other food.
- Freezer compartments with two stars are suitable for storing already frozen food, storing or making ice and making ice cubes.
- Compartments with one, two or three stars are not suitable for freezing fresh food.
