inside temperature of the refrigerator. By
rotating the knob from position 1. to 5.,
temperatures can be obtained.
Important note: Do not try to rotate
knob beyond 1 position it will stop your
appliance.
• For short-term storage of food in the appliance, you can set the knob between minimum
and medium position. (1-3)
• For long-term storage of food in the appliance, you can set knop medium position. (3-4)
Note that; the ambiant temperature, temperature of the freshly stored food and how often the
door is opened, affects the temperature in the refrigerator compartment. If required,change
the temperature setting.
• When you first switch on the appliance, for starting a suitable cooling, the appliance
should work 24 hours continuously until it cools down to sufficient temperature.
• In this time do not open the door so often and place a lot of food inside the appliance.
• If the unit is switched off or unplugged, you must allow at least 5 minutes before restarting
or re-plugged the unit in order not to damage the compressor.

Defrosting
Excessive frost will affect the performance of the refrigerator. Ice making compartment
should be melted at least twice a year or when ice exceeds 7 mm.
For this;
• Make sure that drain tray flap on place. (Take the Winter mode. At the end of defrosting
take the previous mode depending on the ambient temperature. Winter- Summer mode)
• The day before you defrost, set the thermostat dial to 5. position to freeze the foods
completely.
• During defrosting, frozen foods should be wrapped in several layers of paper and kept in
a cool place. The inevitable rise in temperature will shorten their storage life. Remember
to use these foods within a relatively short period of time.
• Switch the refrigerator off at the socket outlet and pull the main plug
• Leave the door open and to accelerate the defrosting process one or more basins of
warm water can be placed in the freezer compartment.

Check that ;
• You have not overloaded the appliance ,
• The doors are closed perfectly ,
• There is no dust on the condenser ,
• There is enough place at the rear and side walls.

The cooling gas which circulates in the refrigerator circuit may make a slight noise(bubbling
sound) even when the compressor is not running. Do not worry this is quite normal. If these
sounds are different check that ;
• The appliance is well leveled ,
• Nothing is touching the rear ,

Your fridge is designed to operate in the ambient temperature intervals stated in the standards,
according to the climate class stated in the information label. We do not recommend operating
your fridge out of stated temperatures value limits in terms of cooling effectiveness.

Tips For Saving Energy
1.Install the appliance in a cool, well ventilated room , but not in direct sunlight and not near
heat source (radiator, cooker.. etc). Otherwise use an insulating plate.
2.Allow ward food and drinks to cool down outside the appliance.
3.When thawing frozen food, place it in the refrigerator compartment. The low temperature
of the frozen food will help to cool the refrigerator compartment when it is thawing. So it
causes energy saving. If the frozen food is put out, it causes wastage of energy.
4.When placing, drinks and slops they must be covered. Otherwise humidity increases at
the appliance. Therefore the working time gets longer. Also covering drinks and slops
helps to save smell and taste.
5.When placing food and drinks, open the appliance door as briefly as possible.
6.Keep close the covers of any different temperature compartment in the appliance (crisper,
chiller ...etc ).
7.Door gasket must be clean and pliable. Replace gaskets if worn.
Recommendations
If the appliance is not used for long time (for example during the summer holidays)set te
thermostat knob to “•” position. Defrost and clean the refrigerator leaving the door open to
prevent the formation of midew and smell.
