In the Event of a Power Failure
If there is a power failure during the storage of frozen foods, keep the door closed. If the temperature within your freezer should rise, do not refreeze the food without checking its condition. The following guidelines should assist you:
Ice Cream: Once thawed should be discarded.
Fruits & Vegetables: If soft should be cooked and used up.
Breads & Cakes: Can be refrozen without danger.
Shellfish: Should be refrigerated and used up quickly.
Cooked Dishes: i.e. casseroles should be refrigerated and used up.
Large Pieces of Meat: Can be refrozen providing there are still ice crystals remaining within them.
Small Joints: Should be cooked and can then be refrozen as cooked dishes.
Chicken: Should also be cooked and refrozen as a fresh dish.
Normal Operating Sounds
- You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils or tubing.
- When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being pumped round and you will hear a whirring sound or pulsating noise from the compressor.
- A thermostat controls the compressor and you will hear a faint ‘click’ when the thermostat cuts in and out.
