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.

Refrigerator is not operatingCheck 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.
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.
When there is refrigerator/ freezer noiseOccasional 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).
If there are odours inside the refrigeratorThe interior may need cleaning.
Some foods produce odours.
Some containers and wrapping can cause odours.
Ask yourself if the odour started about the same time you started storing something unusual.
When the motor seems to run more than expectedYour 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? 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.
If the temperature in the refrigerator is too warmCheck that the appliance has enough clearance at the sides, back and top.
Refer to ‘Controlling the temperature’ on page 12.
You may have kept the door open too long or too frequently.
Food containers or packaging may be holding a door open.
If the temperature in the refrigerator is too coldRefer to ‘Controlling the temperature’ on page 12.
Increase the temperature to avoid high energy consumption.
If heavy frosting occurs in the freezerMake 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.
If water drips on the floorThe 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.
Fridge does not exit vacation modeTurn appliance off at the power point. Leave off for three (3) minutes for the memory to clear, then turn back on.
If the doors will not closeCheck whether something is holding the door open.
When temperature is hot/warm on the outside and rear side of the refrigeratorIn normal operation, the refrigerator transfers heat from inside to outside of the cabinet. It is normal for the side and rear of the refrigerator to feel warm/hot while operating. This will be more noticeable during start up and hot ambient conditions.

Water tap is turned off. Turn on the water tap.

  1. Switch off the power at the power point and remove the refrigerator’s power cord from the power point.
  2. Carefully unclip the light cover. You do this by pulling the light cover tab at the rear towards the front of the cabinet.
  3. Unscrew the light bulb and replace it with a bulb that is the same as the original. If, when you remove the light bulb the small rubber “O” ring comes out with the bulb, fit the “O” ring over the new bulb and screw bulb into the socket (see diagram below)

Doors and exterior – stainless steel

Your stainless steel appliance is manufactured from a mark resistant 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.

It is important to wipe in the direction of the grain of the stainless steel to avoid undue marking of the surface.

Doors – surface hardened acrylic

You should only clean the acrylic doors with lukewarm soapy water and a soft cloth, rinsing with clean water and the wipe the surface with clean water and a soft clean cloth to remove soap residue.
