Tips on storing fresh food

Storing in the refrigerator compartment

  • Keep your fridge temperature below 5°C.
  • Hot food must be cooled to room temperature before storing in the appliance.
  • Foods stored in the refrigerator should be washed and dried before storing.
  • Food to be stored should be properly sealed to avoid odour or taste alterations.
  • Do not store excessive quantities of food. Leave spaces between foods to allow cold air flowing around them, for a better and more homogeneous cooling.
  • Foods eaten daily should be stored at the front of the shelf.
  • Leave a gap between foods and the inner walls, allowing air flow. Don’t store foods against the rear wall: foods could freeze against rear wall. Avoid direct contact of food (especially oily or acidic food) with the inner liner, as oil/acid can erode the inner liner. Clean away oily/acid dirt whenever it is found.
  • Defreeze frozen food in the fridge storage compartment. This way, you can use the frozen food to decrease the temperature in the compartment and save energy.
  • The ageing process of fruit and vegetables such as courgettes, melons, papaya, banana, pineapple, etc. can be accelerated in the refrigerator. Therefore, it is not advisable to store them in the refrigerator. However, the ripening of strongly green fruits can be promoted for a certain period. Onions, garlic, ginger and other root vegetables should also be stored at room temperature
  • Unpleasant odours inside the fridge are a sign that something has spilled and clean- ing is required. See CARE AND CLEANING.
  • Different foods should be placed in different areas according to their properties:

Storage in the freezer compartment

  • Keep the freezer temperature at -18°C.
  • 24 hours before freezing, switch on the Super Freeze function; for small quantities of food 4-6 hours are sufficient.
  • Hot food must be cooled to room temperature before storing in the freezer compartment.
  • Food cut into small portions will freeze faster and be easier to defrost and cook. The recommended weight for each portion is less than 2.5Kg
  • It is better to pack food before putting it into the freezer. The outside of the packaging must be dry to avoid bags sticking together. Packaging materials should be odour-free, airtight, non-poisonous and nontoxic.
  • In order to avoid expiration of storage periods, please note the freezing date, time limit and name of the food on the packaging according to the storage periods of different foods.
  • WARNING! Acid, alkali and salt etc. could erode the internal surface of the freezer. Do not place food with these substances (eg. seafood) directly on internal surfaces. Salt water in the freezer should be cleaned up immediately.
  • Do not exceed the food storage times recommended by the manufacturers. Only take the required amount of food out of the freezer.
  • Consume defrosted food quickly. Defrosted food cannot be re-frozen unless it is first cooked, otherwise it may be less edible.
  • Do not load excessive quantities of fresh food in the freezer compartment. Refer to the freezing capacity of the freezer (see TECHNICAL DATA).
  • Food can be stored in the freezer at a temperature of at least -18°C for 2 to 12 months, depending on its properties (eg. meat: 3-12 months, vegetables: 6-12 months).
  • When freezing fresh food, avoid bringing it in contact with already frozen food. Risk of thawing!
  • Defreeze frozen food in the fridge. This way, you can use the frozen food to decrease the temperature in the fridge compartment and save energy.

Different foods should be placed in different areas according to their properties:

Power interruption

In the event of a power cut, food should remain safely cold for about 16 hours. Follow these tips during a prolonged power interruption, especially in summer:

  • Open the door/drawer as few times as possible.
  • Do not put additional food into the appliance during a power interruption.
  • If prior notice of a power interruption is given and the interruption duration is longer than 16 hours, make some ice and put it in a container in the top of the refrigerator compartment.
  • An inspection of the goods is required immediately after the interruption.
  • As temperature in the refrigerator will rise during a power interruption or other fail- ure, the storage period and edible quality of food will be reduced. Any food that de- frosts should be either consumed, or cooked and refrozen (where suitable) soon afterwards in order to prevent health risks.

Installation

Environmental conditions

  • The room temperature should always be between 10°C and 43°C, since it can influence the temperature inside the appliance and its energy consumption. Do not install the appli- ance near other heat-emitting appliances (ovens, refrigerators) without isolation.

Door reversibility

Before the appliance is permanently installed, check the correct position of the door hinge. If necessary see door reversibility below.

Space requirement

Required space when door is opened:

Positioning your appliance

  • This appliance should be installed in a room that is dry and well ventilated.To provide adequate ventilation,make sure the refrigerator is at least 20mm clear on all sides from kitchen cabinetry, and 30mm from the back wall. Any units placed above the appliance must be clear by 50mm to allow sufficient ventilation.
  • If locating the refrigerator close to a corner, sufficient spacing must be left for opening the doors and removing the shelves.
  • This appliance should be at least 100mm from any electric or gas cooker. If this is not possible, make sure that appropriate insulation is used (eg insulated wall).
  • Avoid exposing the appliance to direct sunlight, and sources of heat (such as radiators, heaters or cookers).
  • Locating this appliance in a cold environment (such as a shed, outhouse or garage) may compromise its performance. A consistent room temperature of 10°C or above is recommended to ensure optimum performance and food care.

Aligning the appliance

The appliance should be placed on a flat and solid surface.

  1. Tilt the appliance slightly backwards.
  2. Set the feet to the desired level. Make sure the distance to the wall on the hinge side is at least 100mm for the door to open properly.
  3. The stability can be checked by alternately bumping on the diagonals. The slightly swaying should be the same in both directions. Otherwise the frame can warp; possible leaking door seals are the result. A lowering of the rear feet facilitates the door.

Waiting time

  • Maintenance-free lubrication oil is located in the capsule of the compressor. This oil may get through closed pipe system during transportation. Before con- necting the appliance to the power supply you have to wait 2 hours so that the oil runs back into the capsule.

Electrical connection

Before each connection check if:

  • power supply, socket and fusing are appropriate to the rating plate.
  • the power socket is earthed and no multi-plug or extension is being used.
  • the power plug and socket are of sound condition.

Connect the plug to a properly installed household socket.

Door reversibility

Before connecting the appliance to the power supply, you should check whether the door swing must changed from right (as delivered) to left, as required by the installation location and the usability.
