Before you insert the plug into the wall
socket make sure that the voltage and
the frequency shown on the rating
plate inside the appliance corresponds
to your electricity supply.
Rating label is on the left hand side of
fridge inner liner.
We recommend that this appliance be
connected to the mains supply via a
suitable switched and fused socket.
The appliance must be positioned so
that the plug is accessible.
Should the mains lead of the appliance
become damaged or should it need
replacing at any time, it must be
replaced by a special purpose made
mains lead which can only be obtained
from a BEKO Authorised Service
If the fitted moulded plug is not
suitable for your socket, then the plug
should be cut off and an appropriate
plug fitted. Destroy the old plug which
is cut off as a plug with bared cord
could cause a shock hazard if inserted
into a socket elsewhere in the house.
The moulded plug on this appliance
incorporates a 13 A fuse. Should
the fuse need to be replaced an
ASTABEAB approved BS 1362 fuse
of the same rating must be used. Do
not forget to refit the fuse cover. In the
event of losing the fuse cover the plug
must not be used until a replacement
fuse cover has been fitted. Colour
of the replacement fuse cover must
be the same colour as that visible on

2. Connect the blue (Neutral) wire to
the terminal in the plug marked ‘N’ or
coloured black.
3. Connect the brown (Live) wire to
the terminal in the plug marked ‘L’ or
coloured red.
With alternative plugs a 13 A fuse must
be fitted either in the plug or adaptor
or in the main fuse box. If in doubt
contact a qualified electrician.

compliance with national regulations.
B	The power cable plug must be easily
accessible after installation.
B	Voltage and allowable fuse protection
are specified in the “Technical
Specifications” section.
B	The specified voltage must be equal
to your mains voltage.
B	Extension cables and multiway plugs
must not be used for connection.
Page: 8
B	A damaged power cable must be
replaced by a qualified electrician.
B	The appliance must not be operated
before it is repaired! There is danger

7 Recommended solutions for the problems
Please review this list before calling the service. It might save you time and
money. This list includes frequent complaints that are not arising from defective
workmanship or material usage. Some of the features described here may not
exist in your product.
The refrigerator does not operate
•	 Is the refrigerator properly plugged in? Insert the plug to the wall socket.
•	 Is the fuse of the socket which your refrigerator is connected to or the main fuse
blown out? Check the fuse.
Condensation on the side wall of the fridge compartment
•	 Very cold ambient conditions. Frequent opening and closing of the door. Highly
humid ambient conditions. Storage of food containing liquid in open containers.
Leaving the door ajar.
•	 Switching the thermostat to a colder degree.
•	 Decreasing the time the door left open or using it less frequently.
•	 Covering the food stored in open containers with a suitable material.
•	 Wipe the condensation using a dry cloth and check if it persists.
Compressor is not running
•	 Protective thermic of the compressor will blow out during sudden power failures or
plug-out plug-ins as the refrigerant pressure in the cooling system of the refrigerator
has not been balanced yet.
•	 Your refrigerator will start running approximately after 6 minutes. Please call the
service if your refrigerator does not startup at the end of this period.
•	 The fridge is in defrost cycle. This is normal for a full-automatically defrosting
refrigerator. Defrosting cycle occurs periodically.

are tightly closed.
•	 The refrigerator is adjusted to a very low temperature. Adjust the refrigerator
temperature to a warmer degree and wait until the temperature is achieved.
