When the appliance is connected to the power supply, two hyphens will appear on the freezer display until the optimal temperature is reached. The refrigerator display will show a temperature of 5C (factory set). When the appliance is warm, the red alarm LED will blink and the acoustic alarm will sound, indicating that the appliance has not yet reached the optimal temperature for storage of foodstuffs. Press the Reset button to stop the acoustic alarm. The red LED will stop blinking when the freezer compartment reaches a sufficiently low temperature for food storage. At this point it is possible to store food into the freezer compartment. After being switched on, the refrigerator needs 2/3 hours to reach the correct temperature to store a typical volume of food in the refrigerator compartment. IMPORTANT: If food is placed in the refrigerator before the appliance has cooled completely, it may deteriorate. Turning the refrigerator and freezer controls to a cooler than recommended setting will not cool the compartments any faster. Do not place food near the air vents in the refrigerator compartment. A built-in exterior moisture control continuously guards against moisture build-up on the front edges. Do not be alarmed if these edges sometimes feel warm to the touch. The inside light switches on when both doors are opened. 19
