****** Page 6 ****** 6 INSTALLING YOUR NEW APPLIANCE Adequate ventilation around your refrigerator The diagram below shows the recommended airspace to allow for ventilation of your refrigerator. If 5 mm side clearance, the fridge cabinet must sit at least 5 mm proud of kitchen cabinetry for doors to open. A 5 mm side clearance requires 50 mm rear clearance and 50—90mm clearance above. If you don’t have a cupboard with a rear gap, the recommended clearance area on top increases from 50mm to 90mm (x) and from 32mm to 72mm (y). When positioned in a corner area, spacing of at least 300mm on the sides will allow the doors to open enough to enable the removal of bins and shelves. CAUTION! The rollers are designed for forward or backward movement only. They are not castors. Moving the refrigerator sideways may damage your floor and the rollers. E 50mm Minimum recommended 2 airspace CABINET (Rear gap) 300mm 300mm 1. 2. 3. 4. NOTE: Doors are designed to sit proud of cabinetry (not flush). The clearances shown above are the recommended minimum clearances. The clearance at the rear must not exceed 75mm. Installing your refrigerator Your new refrigerator should arrive with the front adjustable rollers wound down, to tilt the top backwards by about i Omm from upright. This will allow your freezer drawer to self-close, providing a consistent closed seal. Roll the refrigerator into place. The top of the refrigerator should be tilted back by omm (see diagram on left). If the refrigerator isn’t tilted back, you can adjust the two front rollers by turning the large, plastic roller nut. (see diagram below). One turn of the nut increases the height of the refrigerator by 10mm. If you have difficulty turning the roller nut, have someone tilt the refrigerator back, so you have better access. Alternatively, you can access the rollers from the side, using a flat screwdriver. (See diagram below). Large plastic roller nut Check the alignment of the refrigerator to the surrounding cupboards to see if it is level. You can adjust the level with the rollers as detailed in step g. Aligned to cupboards ie. even gap Top of refrigerator is level ie. horizontal Adjust front rollers for uneveness of floor //eg. wind this roller x/ down or up Height adjustable front rollers 10-15mm Fixed rear rollers 5. 6. After you have tried Step 3 and 4, and still find your refrigerator rocks from corner to corner, it means your floor is uneven. Find a piece of plastic or hardboard etc. and pack it firmly under the rear roller. On certain floor surfaces the refrigerator may roll forward during operation. Where provided a “Roller Stop” can be placed under the front rollers. If roller stop is required, please contact Customer Service (details on back page) and quote part no. 1448845. Roller Stop

****** Page 7 ****** INSTALLING YOUR NEW APPLIANCE 7. 8. 9. You may now need to fine-tune the installation by repeating Steps g, 4 and 5. Clean your refrigerator thoroughly following the instructions on page 13 and wipe off any dust that has accumulated during shipping. Plug your refrigerator straight into its own power point and never use a double adapter. If you need to roll the refrigerator to get to the plug, remember to raise the stability foot first. 10. Before you put any food in your refrigerator, it’s recommended you leave it on for 2 or 3 hours to check it is running properly. Congratulations! You have successfully installed your new refrigerator. 7 INITIAL START-UP Refrigerators work by transferring heat from the food inside to the outside air. This operation makes the back and sides of the refrigerator (particularly at start-up) feel warm which is normal. A cooling coil is located behind the rear wall of the freezer section. This coil cools and removes moisture from the air inside. Avoid placing food against the air vents in the refrigerator, as it affects efficient circulation of the air inside the compartment. If the door is opened frequently, a light frosting will occasionally occur on the freezer’s interior. This is normal and will clear after a few days. If the freezer door is accidentally kept open, a heavy frost will coat the inside walls and should be removed. Your new refrigerator uses a high-speed compressor, along with other energy-efficient components, which may make unusual sounds. These sounds simply indicate your refrigerator is working how it should. They include: Compressor running noises; Air movement noise from the small fan motor; • A gurgling sound, similar to water boiling; A popping noise, heard during automatic defrosting; • A clicking noise, prior to compressor start-up. Further details can be found on page 14.

****** Page 8 ****** 8 ELECTRONIC DISPLAY CONTROLS The electronic display panel consists of an LCD display with black backlighting and 6 touch buttons. When the power is first turned on, the display, with backlighting, will activate. If no buttons have been pressed and the fridge door is closed the backlighting will turn off after 30 seconds. Controlling the temperature We recommend that when you start your refrigerator for the first time, the temperature for the refrigerator is set to and the freezer to -i 80C. If you want to change the temperature, follow the instructions below. Make only small adjustments and wait 24 hours to see if it’s correct. Checking the softness of ice cream is a good indication T your freezer is the right temperature, while feeling the coldness of water kept in the refrigerator is a good way of checking the temperature of the food compartment. NOTE: When you set a temperature, you set an average temperature for the whole refrigerator cabinet. Temperatures inside each compartment may vary, depending on how much food you store and where you place it. High or low room temperature may also affect the actual temperature inside the refrigerator. If no button has been pressed for some time there may be a delay of up to 2 seconds before the display responds, this is normal and is a part of the display design to reduce the chance of accidental changes. Changing the freezer temperature Press the freezer button to make the freezer colder in IOC steps. Once the maximum of -230C is reached, the display will return to -140C with the next press of the button. The bar graph gets smaller with colder freezer settings. Changing the refrigerator temperature Press the fridge button to make the refrigerator colder in IOC steps. Once OOC is reached, the display will return to 7 oc with the next button press. The bar graph gets smaller with colder refrigerator settings. Fast freeze function fast freeze Use the fast freeze function when you add a large amount of food to the freezer compartment. This freezes the food quickly but does not affect the temperature in the refrigerator compartment. To use this function, press the fast freeze button once. An animated icon will light up. The fast freeze function will now operate for 90 minutes. If you want to turn the fast freeze function off before 90 minutes have passed, simply press the fast freeze button again. The icon will disappear and the freezer will return to normal operation. Freezer temperature alarm alarm &inks If the alarm sounds for no apparent reason, check whether anything is keeping the door open. If the freezer becomes too warm due to the freezer door being left open or warm food being placed too close to the temperature sensor, a buzzer will sound. The icon adjacent to the alarm reset button, the freezer set temperature and bar graph will all flash, until the alarm reset button is pressed. Once pressed, the alarm disable icon adjacent to the alarm button will illuminate for 50 minutes, or until the temperature drops to an acceptable level. Make sure nothing is holding the freezer door open and move any warm food away from the temperature sensor. If the freezer is still too warm after 50 minutes, the alarm will sound again, indicating that something may be wrong with the refrigerator. NOTE: The freezer temperature alarm can be reset for 12 hours by pressing the alarm reset button continuously for 10 seconds. Door alarm If the fridge or freezer door is left open for more than two minutes, the alarm will buzz and an arrow pointing to an open door will flash, along with the temperature setting and bar graph. If you want to leave the door open while you load the refrigerator, you can turn the alarm off for 8 minutes by pressing the alarm reset button. If the fridge door is left open for more than 30 minutes, the light will automatically turn off to save energy. To turn the light back on simply close and reopen the door again.

****** Page 9 ****** 9 ELECTRONIC DISPLAY CONTROLS Child Lock Press and hold the freezer and fridge buttons together to activate the child lock. This will disable the display to prevent accidental changes to settings. To turn the child lock off, press and hold the freezer and fridge buttons together. Drinks chill timer The drinks chill timer is used to quickly chill a bottle. Place the bottle in the freezer and the timer can be set for a minimum of 5 minutes to a maximum of 30 minutes. To set, simply press the drinks chill button repeatedly for the number of minutes (In 5-minute intervals). Once set, an animated icon appears beside the drinks chill button, with a timer that counts down one minute at a time. You can change the time or turn the timer off even after the countdown has started. A buzzer will tell you when the time is finished and the icon will flash until the alarm reset button is pressed. If your drink is not cold enough, reset the drinks chill function (remembering the drink is already partially chilled). Suggested chilling times: 10 minutes for cans of drink 20 minutes for bottles of wine 30 minutes for bottles of soft drink. Energy efficiency Your refrigerator has been designed to be energy-efficient and can operate in three modes: Normal, Eco and Vacation. Normal mode 18 inutes Normal mode is used when the refrigerator door is often opened. It’s the default mode of your refrigerator. Eco mode can be used if you don’t open your refrigerator door a lot. It is activated in one of two ways: by manually pressing the eco/holiday button once when in normal mode, or, — automatically activates after 30 hours if the refrigerator door has not been opened. The leaf icon will appear on the electronic display when eco mode is on. If eco mode is activated automatically, the refrigerator will revert to normal mode once the refrigerator door is opened. If eco mode is entered manually, opening the door will not revert it back to normal mode. To exit eco mode, simply press the eco/holiday button until the word “normal” is displayed. Use Eco mode when you’re not using the refrigerator all the time (eg. as a long-term storage refrigerator). If the door is going to be opened a lot, switch back to normal mode. Remember, if eco mode is turned on manually, it won’t switch off automatically. Vacation mode Use this button when you go on vacation or leave the house for long periods. The refrigerator minimises defrosting to save energy but maintains your temperature settings. To put the refrigerator into vacation mode, press the eco/vacation mode button until the aeroplane icon appears. The vacation mode will operate until the button is pressed again or the refrigerator door is opened. NOTE: Opening the freezer drawer won ‘t effect the operation of either Eco or Vacation modes. Eco and Vacation Modes minimise defrosting to save energy, while maintaining your temperature settings. Other special refrigerator features Independent control of the compressor and fan to provide the best performance. Extra cooling depending on the number of times the door is opened. Automatically adjusts defrost time when the door is not frequently opened. NOTE: Display malfunctions may be due to brief power supply interruptions. If this occurs, turn the refrigerator off at the power point and wait 5 minutes. The refrigerator pressure will need time to equalise before you turn the refrigerator on again.

Twist Ice & Serve To use, remove the tray, fill with water and place back in the freezer. Once ice has formed (approximately g hours) simply twist the knob at the front clockwise until the ice drops into the bin below. LED lighting CAUTION! Your refrigerator is fitted with long life LED lighting. In the unlikely event the LED lights should fail, then the LED lights should be serviced by the manufacturer, it’s service agent or similarly qualified technician. Refer to the warranty page for contact details. When the door is left open for 15 minutes, the LED light will dim to 50% brightness to conserve energy and prolong the life of the LED. If the door is left open for a further 15 minutes, the light will automatically turn off. Close and reopen the door again to turn the light back on. Deodoriser Your appliance is fitted with a deodoriser to assist with the removal of food odours inside your appliance. (Refer item 15). Odours are removed by absorption through the filter by the normal operation of the appliance. Keeping food covered and wrapping food with plastic wrap will also help to reduce the odours inside your appliance.

****** Page 13 ****** CARE AND MAINTENANCE Cleaning the appliance WARNING’. Before cleaning: Turn appliance off at the power point, then remove power cord from socket. This will make sure there is no chance of getting an electric shock. Doors stainless steel This stainless steel has a special advanced protective coating that eases the removal of marks such as finger prints and water spots. To keep your stainless steel appliance looking at its best, you should clean it regularly. You should only clean the stainless steel doors with luke-warm soapy water and a soft cloth, rinsing with clean water and then wipe the surface with clean water and a soft clean cloth to remove soap residue. Doors — surface hardened acrylic Clean outside of door only with the anti-static cleaner supplied (ACL Staticide #2003). It is designed to reduce dust accumulation on acrylic surfaces. Alternatively, only use lukewarm soapy water and a soft cloth, rinsing with clean water and then wipe the surface with a soft clean cloth to remove soap residue. Interior You should clean the appliance interior regularly. It will be easiest to clean when the food supply is low. Wash the interior with a soft cloth and use an unscented mild soap with lukewarm water. Thoroughly dry all surfaces and removable parts. Avoid getting water on appliance controls. If you have taken out any removable parts, replace them and switch the power on before re- stocking the appliance with food. Naturally, you should keep the interior of your appliance hygienic by promptly and thoroughly wiping up any food spills. Don’t use a steam cleaner. If live components come into contact with condensing steam, they may short- circuit or cause an electric shock. Door seals Take care to keep door seals clean. Sticky food and drink can cause seals to stick to the cabinet and tear when you open the door. Wash seal with a mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry. 13 CAUTION! Never use hot water, solvents, commercial kitchen cleaners, aerosol cleaners, metal polishes, caustic or abrasive cleaners, or scourers to clean this appliance, as they will damage it. Many commercially available cleaning products and detergents contain solvents that will damage your refrigerator. Damage to this product after delivery is not covered by your warranty. When cleaning, use only a soft cloth with an unscented mild soap and lukewarm water.

****** Page 14 ****** 14 TROUBLESHOOTING If you think something may be wrong with your refrigerator, you can carry out some easy checks before calling for service. You may locate the problem, sparing yourself from inconvenience, saving time and money. problem Refrigerator is not operating When there is refrigerator/ freezer noise If there are odours inside the refrigerator When the motor seems to run more than expected If the temperature in the refrigerator is too warm If the temperature in the refrigerator is too cold If heavy frosting occurs in the freezer If water drips on the floor Fridge does not exit vacation mode If the doors will not close solution • Check that the power cord is plugged into the power outlet properly and that the outlet is switched ‘ON’. • Try running another appliance from the power outlet. If no power is coming from the outlet you may have blown a fuse or tripped a circuit of your household power supply. • Try adjusting the temperature control to a slightly “colder” position. e It is normal for the freezer fan NOT to operate during the automatic defrost cycle, or for a short time after the appliance is switched on. Modern refrigerators/freezers with increased storage capacity use high speed compressors. These can provide a seemingly high level of sound which is quite normal. Normal operational sounds include: • Occasional gurgling, similar to water boiling. • Air flow noise (air circulates because of a small fan). • A popping noise heard during automatic defrost. • A clicking noise heard just before the compressor starts (this is just the automatic switching action of the temperature control, turning the compressor on or off). Other strange sounds may mean that you need to check and take action. For example, noises may mean that: • The cabinet is not level. • The floor is uneven or weak. • Bottles are badly placed and rattling. • There are vibrations from an object on top of or behind or beside the refrigerator. e The back of the refrigerator cabinet is touching the wall. Remember it is quite normal for noise to seem louder just after the refrigerator starts operating. • The interior may need cleaning. • Some foods produce odours. e Some containers and wrapping can cause odours. • Ask yourself if the odour started about the same time you started storing something unusual. Your new refrigerator has a large fridge and freezer section to keep cool. So it is normal to frequently hear the sound of the motor. However, to keep operation to a minimum check the following: • Are doors kept open too long or too often? • Are controls set too cold? See Controlling the temperature’ on page 8. e Have large amounts of warm food just recently been stored? Summer, festive seasons and holidays usually mean a lot more work for your refrigerator. • If the day is hot or the room is very warm, the refrigerator will need to run more than normal. • The refrigerator will run more that normal just after you install it or when it has been turned off for a long time. • Check that the appliance has enough clearance at the sides, back and top. Refer to the installation instructions on page 6. • Refer to ‘Controlling the temperature’ on page 8. • You may have kept the door open too long or too frequently. • Food containers or packaging may be holding a door open. • Refer to ‘Controlling the temperature’ on page 8. • Increase the temperature to avoid high energy consumption. Make sure you fully close the freezer and fridge doors. If the doors are left open, a heavy frost will coat the inside of the freezer. If a frost develops, remove it and take care to properly close the doors. The defrost water tray, (located at the back or underneath of the cabinet) may not be properly positioned, or the drain tube may not be properly positioned to direct water into this tray. You may need to pull the refrigerator away from the wall to check the tray and tube. Turn appliance off at the power point. Leave off for three (3) minutes for the memory to clear, then turn back on. • Check whether the top of the refrigerator is tilted back 10-15mm to allow the doors to self close. • Check whether something is holding the door open. If you still require service If you have a problem, and the problem persists after you have made the checks mentioned above, contact your nearest Electrolux approved Service Centre or the dealer you bought the refrigerator from. Be ready to quote the model number, 9-digit PNC and 8-digit serial number, which is stated on the label inside the refrigerator compartment.
