EN 80 BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE Installing and operating your fridge Before using your fridge, you should pay attention to the following points: • The operating voltage for your fridge is 220-240 V at 50Hz. • The mains cord of your fridge is fitted with a grounded plug. This plug should be used with a grounded receptacle that has a 16 ampere fuse minimum. If you don’t have a receptacle which conforms to this, contact a qualified electrician. • We do not accept responsibility for any damages that occur due to ungrounded usage. • Place your fridge where it will not be exposed to direct sunlight. • Your appliance should be at least 50 cm away from stoves, gas ovens and heater cores, and at least 5 cm away from electrical ovens. • Your fridge should never be used outdoors or exposed to rain. • When your fridge is placed next to a deep freezer, there should be at least 2 cm between them to prevent humidity forming on the outer surface. • Do not place anything on your fridge, and install your fridge in a suitable place so that at least 15 cm of free space is available above it. • Use the adjustable front legs to make sure your appliance is level and stable. You can adjust the legs by turning them in either direction. This should be done before placing food in the fridge. • Before using your fridge, wipe all parts with a solution of warm water and a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate, then rinse with clean water and dry. Place all parts in the fridge after cleaning. • Install the plastic distance guide (the part with black vanes at the rear) by turning it 90° (as shown in the figure) to prevent the condenser from touching the wall. • The refrigerator should be placed against a wall with a free space not exceeding 75 mm.
EN 81 BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE Information about New Generation Cooling Technology Fridges with new generation cooling technology have a different working system than static fridges. In normal fridges, humid air that enters into fridge and the water vapor that comes out from the foods, accumulates frost formation in freezer compartment. In order to melt this frost, in other words defrost, the fridge has to be stopped. During the stopping period, to keep the foods cold, user has to extract the food to outside of fridge and user has to clear the ice during this period. In the fridges with new generation cooling technology, situation in the freezer compartment is completely different. With the aid of fan, cold and dry air is blown out through many points into the freezer compartment. As a result of the homogenously blown cold air, even in the spaces between shelves, foods are frozen equally and correctly. On the other hand there will be no frost formation. In the refrigerator compartment, there will be nearly same configuration with freezer compartment. Air, that is emitted with the fan, located at the top of refrigerator compartment, is cooled while passing through the gap behind the air duct. At the same time, air is blown out through the holes on the air duct so that cooling process is successfully completed in the refrigerator compartment. Holes on the air duct are designed such that the air distribution becomes homogenous in this compartment. As there is no air passage between freezer and refrigerator compartment, there will be no odor mixing. As a result of these, your fridge with new generation cooling technology, gives you, ease of use beside the huge volume and esthetic appearance. Before Using your Fridge • When using your fridge for the first time, or after transportation, keep it in an upright position for at least 3 hours before plugging into the mains. This allows efficient operation and prevents damage to the compressor. • Your fridge may have a smell when it is operated for the first time. This is normal and the smell will fade away when your fridge starts to cool.

EN 94 CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE Replacing LED Lighting If your refrigerator has LED lighting contact the help desk as this should be changed by authorized personnel only. Defrosting • Your refrigerator performs automatic defrosting. The water formed as a result of defrosting passes through the water collection spout, flows into the vaporisation container behind your refrigerator and evaporates there. • Make sure you have disconnected the plug of your refrigerator before cleaning the vaporisation container. • Remove the vaporisation container from its position by removing the screws as indicated. Clean it with soapy water at specific time intervals. This will prevent odours from forming. Evaporating tray
EN 95 ARRANGING FOOD IN THE APPLIANCE Refrigerator compartment • For normal operating conditions, adjusting the temperature value of the cooler partition of the fridge to 4°C will be enough. • To reduce humidity and consequent increase of frost never place liquids in unsealed containers in the refrigerator. Frost tends to concentrate in the coldest parts of the evaporator and in time will require more frequent defrosting. • Never place warm food in the refrigerator. Warm food should be allowed to cool at room temperature and should be arranged to ensure adequate air circulation in the refrigerator compartment. • Nothing should touch on the back wall as it will cause frost and the packages can stick on the back wall. Do not open the refrigerator door too frequently. • Arrange the meat and cleaned fish(wrapped in packages or sheets of plastic) which you will use in 1-2 days,in the bottom section of the refrigerator compartment(that is above the crisper) as this is the coldest section and will ensure the best storing conditions. • You can put the fruits and vegetables into crisper without packing. Some recommendations have been specified below for the placement and storage of your food in the cooling compartment. NOTE: Potatoes, onions and garlic should not be stored in the refrigerator.

EN 96 ARRANGING FOOD IN THE APPLIANCE Freezer compartment • Please use the deep freeze compartment of your refrigerator for storing the frozen food for a long time and for producing ice. • To get maximum capacity for freezer compartment, please just use glass shelves for upper and middle section. For bottom section, please use lower basket. • Please do not place the food you shall newly freeze nearby the already frozen food. • You should freeze the food to be frozen (meat, minced meat, fish, etc.) by dividing them into portions in such a way that they can be consumed once. • Please do not refreeze the frozen food once they are thawed. It may pose a danger for your health since it might cause problems such as food poisoning. • Do not place the hot meals in your deep freeze before they become cold. You would cause the other food frozen beforehand in the deep freeze to become putrefied. • When you buy frozen food, makes sure that they were frozen under appropriate conditions and the package is not torn. • While storing the frozen food, the storage conditions on the package should certainly be observed. If there is not any explanation, the food must be consumed within the shortest time possible. • If there had been humidification in the frozen food package and it has a foul smell, the food might have been stored under unsuitable conditions previously and gone rotten. Do not purchase this type of foods! • The storage durations of frozen food change depending on the ambient temperature, the frequent opening and closing of the doors, thermostat settings, food type and the time elapsed from the purchase time of the food to the time it is placed into the freezer. Always abide by the instructions on the package and never exceed the indicated storage duration. • During long lasting power failures, please do not open the door of the deep freeze compartment. Your refrigerator shall preserve your frozen food for about 18 hours in ambient temperatures of 25°C and for about 13 hours in ambient temperatures of 32°C. This value will decrease under higher ambient temperatures. During longer power failures, do not refreeze your food and consume them as soon as possible.
EN 97 ARRANGING FOOD IN THE APPLIANCE Not that; if you want to open again immediately after closing the freezer door, it will not be opened easily. It’s quite normal! After reaching equilibrium condition, the door will be opened easily. Important note: • Frozen foods, when thawed, should be cooked just like fresh foods. If they are not cooked after being thawed they must NEVER be re- frozen. • The taste of some spices found in cooked dishes (anise, basilica, watercress, vinegar, assorted spices, ginger, garlic, onion, mustard, thyme, marjoram, black pepper, etc.) changes and they assume a strong taste when they are stored for a long period. Therefore, the frozen food should be added little amount of spices or the desired spice should be added after the food has been thawed. • The storage period of food is dependent on the oil used. The suitable oils are margarine, calf fat, olive oil and butter and the unsuitable oils are peanut oil and pig fat. • The food in liquid form should be frozen in plastic cups and the other food should be frozen in plastic folios or bags. Some recommendations have been specified on pages 98, 99 and 100 for the placement and storage of your food in the deep freeze compartment.
