SITUATING YOUR FRIDGE-FREEZER
CAUTION: DO NOT PLACE THE APPLIANCE NEAR HEAT SOURCES
AND LEAVE AT LEAST 5CM OF SPACE ABOVE THE UPPER SECTION.
FOR FULL INSTALLATION ADVICE, PLEASE SEE PAGE 15
MAKE A NOTE OF THE LOCATION FOR YOUR NEW FRIDGE-FREEZER. MAKE
SURE THAT IT WILL FIT PROPERLY SO THAT:
1) The doors can open freely and completely.
2) You can access your food conveniently.
3) There is sufficient space at the sides and back for the cooling coils to give off heat safely & that they do not touch the plug (see SAFETY SECTION).
NOTE: You can reverse the swing of the door to customise the unit to your location. Please see page 16 for details.
Turning on your Baumatic BF207 FRIDGE-FREEZER:
PLEASE FAMILIARISE YOURSELF WITH THE DISPLAY
PANEL AT THE TOP OF THE UNIT (ILLUSTRATED BELOW).
YOU SWITCH ON YOUR APPLIANCE by PLUGGING
IT IN & SETTING THE REGULATING DEVICE (Electronic Thermostat) inside the Fridge-Freezer near the top, at the
right-hand side (see the Figure on Page 5):
–  –  –
Your Fridge-Freezer’s thermostat automatically regulates the inside temperature of the compartments. By rotating the knob from a lower to a higher numbered position, colder temperatures can be obtained. This is particularly important for food stored in the freezer.
Thermostat setting : LOW SETTINGS: Use these settings (IE, heading towards ‘0’) for short-term storage of food in the fridgefreezer.
USING your Baumatic BF207 FRIDGE-FREEZER:
MID-SETTINGS: Use these settings for long-term storage of food in the freezer.
HIGH SETTINGS: Use these settings to freeze fresh food in your freezer and to keep food extra cold in your refrigerator.
NOTE: On maximum setting, your appliance will work harder to maintain this low temperature so after you reach this temperature, you should turn the knob to a milder setting (depending on long or short-term storage intentions).
REMINDER: Allow the unit time to settle after delivery. If your plug and power socket are now behind the fridge and you still need to move the unit into place, be especially careful: Remember to leave a safe distance between the back of the fridge and the wall.
You switch your Fridge-Freezer OFF by turning the thermostat knob to position ‘0’.
NOTE: When you first switch on the appliance, allow 24 hours for it to cool down to the desired temperature. During this time, DO NOT open the door often or place a lot of food inside the unit.
WARNING! If the appliance is switched off then switched back on again after a short period, the compressor will start up again after approximately half-an-hour. This is part of the normal operation of the appliance.
ARRANGING FOOD IN YOUR FRIDGE-FREEZER
• To reduce humidity and the consequent increase of frost, NEVER place liquids in unsealed containers in the refrigerator. Frost tends to concentrate in the coldest parts of the evaporator. In time, the unit will need more frequent defrosting if too much humidity develops inside it.
• NEVER place warm food inside the refrigerator.
Warm food must be allowed to cool at room temperature. It should then be arranged to ensure adequate air circulation in the refrigerator compartment.
• DO NOT ALLOW anything to touch the refrigerator’s back wall as it will cause frost. Also, packaging, especially paper, can stick to it and spoil.
• DO NOT open the refrigerator door too often or leave it open for long spells of time.
• ARRANGE meat and cleaned fish (wrapped in packages or sheets of plastic) which you will then use within 1-2 days.
• You can put fruits and vegetables into the crisper without packing them.
REMINDER: You should regulate the temperature of your
Fridge-Freezer bearing the following in mind:
o Ambient temperature o How often the doors are opened and closed o Quantity of food stored in the compartments o The location of your appliance
ARRANGING FOOD IN YOUR FRIDGE-FREEZER
Freezer Compartment Your freezer’s chief function is to allow you to store • deep-frozen or frozen foods for long periods of time, and to make ice cubes.
DO NOT put warm food into the freezer.
–  –  –
NOTE: At the maximum cold setting, with a high outside (ambient) temperature and well-stocked (full or nearly full) compartments, the Fridge-Freezer’s operation may be continuous, leading to the formation of ice and frost on the evaporator.
Should this happen, the knob must be turned to a less cold position to allow automatic defrosting.
This will also allow lower energy consumption.
IN CASE OF A BLACKOUT (GENERAL POWER FAILURE)
In case of Power Failure, find out how long the electricity will be off. If the failure is not going to be for any longer than 12 hours, leave the food in the freezer and keep the door closed.
If the POWER FAILURE is going to last longer than 12 hours and some food defrosts, consume the latter as soon as possible.
LONG ABSENCES (vacations, etc.): In the case of long absences, the appliance must be switched off, emptied out completely, dried and the doors left open to prevent the formation of mould and unpleasant odours.
CLEANING / MAINTENANCE
NOTE: Before attempting to clean your Fridge-Freezer,
UNPLUG IT and make sure you do the following:
Remove the baskets and the ice-cube tray.
Leave the door open.
In order to collect the defrosted water, take out the bottom drawer and soak up the water using a sponge as shown in the figure pictured below.
–  –  –
MAINTENANCE THE ONLY MAINTENANCE YOUR FRIDGE-FREEZER REQUIRES IS THE
REPLACEMENT OF THE INTERNAL BULB. REMEMBER TO UNPLUG YOU APPLIANCE FIRST
o Find the lamp housing in the top right of the refrigerator’s interior.
–  –  –
DEFROSTING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
Defrosting occurs fully automatically in the refrigerator compartment during normal operation. The defrosted water collected by the evaporating tray evaporates automatically.
NOTE: The evaporating tray and water drain hole (back of the refrigerator crisper shelf) should be cleaned periodically to prevent water from collecting on the bottom of the refrigerator instead of flowing out.
–  –  –
**** Generally, you should defrost your Freezer at
least twice a year, like this:
You must defrost your freezer when there is more than 5mm of frost covering the shelves.
Do not use sharp metal objects to scrape frost with (they could damage the fridge circuit irreparably). Use the plastic scraper provided.
• Remove the food and wrap it in several layers of paper or newspaper and keep it in the refrigerator or in another cool place.
• Bear in mind that an increase in the food temperature considerably decreases the preservation time.
–  –  –
WARNING – Do not use mechanical devices or other artificial methods to accelerate defrosting other than those recommended by the manufacturer.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS – BF207 FRIDGE-FREEZER:
Ensure that you are going to be placing your fridgefreezer away from heat sources and in a well-ventilated position. This should be at least 50 cm from radiators, gas or coal stoves and 5 cm away from electric stoves. Do not place the appliance in the path of direct sunlight.
Make sure that the plug is accessible after positioning 2) your fridge-freezer.
Keep a space of 15cm above your fridge freezer.
3) If placing beside another refrigerator or freezer, keep at 4) least 2cm between the units to prevent condensation.
Gently move the appliance into place or, in the case of 5) installing in a unit, into its housing.
Adjust the feet (see 6) picture at bottom of page) until your Fridge-freezer sits levelly on your floor.
You can level your unit using these adjustable feet to compensate for dips and rises in your floor surface.
REMINDER: make sure that there is sufficient space behind the cooling coils at the sides and back of your Fridge-Freezer. 13cm is ideal.
YOU MUST install this appliance in well ventilated, dry room.
Energy use is affected by the ambient temperature.
You are therefore advised to:
Not expose the appliance to direct sunlight;
Not install the appliance next to radiators, cookers or other sources of heat;
Only install the appliance at a location whose ambient temperature corresponds to the climate classification, for which the appliance is designed.
The climate classification can be found on the data rating tag, which is located at the left on the inside of the appliance.
–  –  –
If the appliance is installed next to another refrigerator or freezer a clearance of 5 cm at the side is required. This is to prevent the formation of condensation on the outside of the appliance.
