OPERATION AND FUNCTIONS

Storage of food in the fridge-freezer

  •  The products should be placed on plates, in containers or packed in food wrap. Distribute them evenly over the shelves.
  •  If the food contacts the rear wall, it may cause frosting or wetting of the products.
  •  Do not put dishes with hot food into the fridge
  •  Products that absorb flavors easily such as butter, milk, white cheese, and products with intense flavor, such as fish, smoked meat, hard cheese must be placed on shelves, packed in food wrap or in tightly sealed containers.
  • The storage of vegetables containing significant quantities of water will cause the deposition of condensation on the vegetable containers, it does not impact on the proper functioning of the fridge.
  •  Before putting the vegetables into the fridge, dry them well.
  • Excessive moisture shortens the shelf life of vegetables, especially leafed vegetables.
  •  Do not wash the vegetables before storing in the refrigerator. Wash-ing removes the natural protection, therefore it is better to wash the vegetables directly before consumption.
  •  It is recommended to place the products in freezer drawers 1, 2, 3* up to natural loading capacity (Fig. 11a / 11b).**
    1. Packed products
    2. Shelf
    3. Natural loading capacity
    4. Amica AKG 3885 E French Door Refrigerator-Freezer Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 8
  • Stacking of products on the freezer shelves is acceptable.*
  • It is acceptable to place products beyond the natural loading capacity by 20-30 mm.**
  • In order to increase the loading capacity of the freezer chamber and allow the stacking of products on the freezer evaporator wire shelves up to maximum height it is possible to remove drawers 1 and 2.*

Freezing food**

  • Practically all the food products, except for vegetables consumed raw, such as lettuce can be frozen.
  • Only food products of the highest quality, divided into small portions for single-use, should be frozen.
  • Products should be packed in materials that are odorless, resistant to air and moisture penetration, and not susceptible to fat. Plastic bags, polyethylene and aluminum sheets are the best wrapping materials.
  • The packaging should be tight and should stick to the frozen products. Do not use glass containers.
  • Keep fresh and warm foodstuff at ambient temperature away from the products, which have already been frozen.
  • We advise you not to place more of fresh food at a time to the freezer per day (see table with technical specifications).
  • In order to maintain optimum quality of the frozen food, reorganize the food that is in the middle of the freezer, so that it does not touch the products that are not yet frozen.
  • It is recommended that you move the already frozen products to one side and place the fresh products that are to be frozen on the opposite side, as close to the rear and side walls as possible.
  • To freeze products, use the space markedAmica AKG 3885 E French Door Refrigerator-Freezer Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 9
  • Bear in mind that the temperature in the freezer is affected by several factors, including the ambient temperature and the number of food products in the chamber, the frequency of opening the door, the amount of frost in the freezer, and the thermostat setting.
  • If you cannot open the freezer door immediately after closing it, allow 1-2 minutes for the negative pressure to compensate, and try again to open the door.
  • The storage time for frozen products depends on their quality before freezing when fresh, and on the storage temperature. The following storage periods are recommended when the temperature of -18°C or lower is maintained:

 

Products Months
Beef 6-8
Veal 3-6
Giblets 1-2
Pork 3-6
Poultry 6-8
Eggs 3-6
Fish 3-6
Vegetables 10-12
Fruit 10-12

Do not store frozen food in the rapid cooling chamber. Ice cubes can be prepared and stored in this chamber.

USING THE REFRIGERATOR EFFICIENTLY

Practical everyday tips

  •  Do not place fridges or freezers next to radiators, heaters, stoves or in direct sunlight.
  •  Make sure that air vents are not covered up and clean the dust off them once or twice a year.
  •  Select the right temperature: 6 to 8°C in your refrigerator and -18°C in your freezer is sufficient.
  • When on holiday, turn up the temperature in your fridge.
  •  Only open your fridge or freezer when necessary. It helps if you know what food each contains and where it is located. Return food to the fridge or freezer as soon as possible after you have used it so that it does not warm up too much.
  •  Wipe the inside of your fridge regularly with a cloth soaked in a mild detergent. Appliances which are not self-defrosting will require regu-lar defrosting. Do not allow frost layers thicker than 10 mm to form.
  •  Keep the seal around the door clean, otherwise it will not shut prop-erly. Always replace broken seals.

Understanding the stars

Amica AKG 3885 E French Door Refrigerator-Freezer Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 13The temperature is at least -6°C; sufficient to store frozen food for about a week. Drawers or compartments marked with one star used to be a feature of (mostly) cheaper fridges

Amica AKG 3885 E French Door Refrigerator-Freezer Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 14 Food can be stored at -12°C or below for 1-2 weeks without losing its taste. Not suitable for freezing food.

Amica AKG 3885 E French Door Refrigerator-Freezer Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 15This rating is mainly used to store foods at -18°C or below. Can also be used to freeze up to 1 kilogram of fresh food

Amica AKG 3885 E French Door Refrigerator-Freezer Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 16 This appliance is suitable for storing foods at -18°C or below and freezing larger quantities of fresh foods

Practical tips

Due to the natural circulation of the air in the appliance, there are dif-ferent temperature zones in the refrigerator chamber.The coldest area is directly above the vegetables drawers. Use this area for all delicate and highly perishable food e.g.:

  • Fish, meat, poultry
  • Sausage products, ready meals
  • Dishes or baked goods containing eggs or cream
  • Fresh dough, cake mixtures
  • Pre-packed vegetable and other fresh food with a label stating it should be kept at a temperature of approx 4OC.
    The warmest area is in the top section of the door. Use this for storing butter and cheese.

Food that should not be stored in a refrigerator
Not all food is suitable for storing in the refrigerator, particularly:

  • Fruit and vegetables which are sensitive to cold, such as bananas, avocado, papaya, passion fruit, aubergines, peppers, tomatoes and cu-cumbers.
  • Fruit which is not yet ripe
  • Potatoes

Warning:
Example of storing the food – see figure 12.
To achieve the most effective food preservation for the longest possible time and to avoid wasting any food, position the products as shown in Figure 12. In addition, this figure illustrates the layout of drawers, bas-kets and shelves, which allows the most efficient use of energy.
Optimal temperature and storage conditions will extend product shelf life and optimize electricity consumption. Optimal storage temperature range should be stated on the food product packaging.

DEFROSTING, WASHING AND MAINTENANCE

Never clean the product’s casing or plastic parts using solvents or strong, abrasive detergents (e.g. washing powders or creams)! Use mild liquid detergents and soft cloths only. Do not use sponges.
Defrosting the fridge***

  • Frost settles on the rear wall of the fridge chamber. It is removed automatically. During the defrosting, the condensate, which contains contaminants may clog the opening in the through. Should it occur, carefully unclog the opening with the cleaning plug (fig. 13).
  • The appliance operates in cycles: it refrigerates (then the frost set-tles on the rear wall), and defrosts (water flows down the rear wall)
  • Disconnect the appliance from the mains before cleaning by removing the plug from the mains socket or switching off the fuse. Prevent water from penetrating the control panel or the light.
  • Do not use defrosting aerosols. They may cause the formation of an explosive mixture, or contain solvents which may damage the plastic components of the appliance and even be harmful to health.
  • Make sure the water used for cleaning does not flow into the evapo-ration container through the discharge opening.
  • The whole appliance, except for the door gasket must be cleaned with a mild cleaning detergent. The door gasket should be cleaned with water and wiped dry.
  • Wash all the accessories (vegetable containers, door shelves, glass shelves, etc.).

Defrosting the freezer**

  •  It is recommended to combine defrosting the appliance with washing it.
  •  Excessive accumulation of ice on the freezing areas impairs the ap-pliance’s freezing capacity and increases the energy consumption.
  •  Defrost the appliance at least once or twice a year. In case of a higher ice build-up, defrosting must be carried out more frequently.
  • If there is food in the freezer, set the knob to the max. position about 4 hours before the planned defrosting. This will ensure the possibility of storing the food at the ambient temperature for a longer time.
  •  After taking the food out of the freezer, put it in a container, wrap it with several layers of paper, a blanket and store it at a cool place.
  •  The defrosting operation should last as short as possible. Long stor-age of food at the ambient temperature shortens their shelf life.

Defrost the freezer chamber following steps:**

  •  Switch of the appliance using the control panel and pull the plug out from the socket..
  •  Open the door and remove the food from the freezer.
  • Depending on the model, pull out the drainage tube located in the bottom of the freezer compartment and place a suitable vessel un-derneath.
  •  Leave the door open, this will speed up the defrost process. Addi-tionally, a pot with hot water (not boiling) may be placed inside the freezer compartment.
  •  Wash the interior of the freezer and wipe it dry.
  •  Switch on the appliance as per the relevant point in the manual.

Automatic fridge defrosting****
The fridge chamber has been equipped with an automatic defrosting function. However, frost may settle on the rear wall of the fridge chamber. This happens usually when large quantities of fresh food products are stored in the fridge.
Automatic fridge defrosting****
The freezer chamber has been equipped with an automatic defrosting function (no-frost). The food is frozen in the cooled circulation air, and the moisture from the freezer chamber is discharged outside. As a result, no ice and frost is produced in the freezer and the products do not freeze on each other.
Washing the fridge and freezer chambers manually****
It is recommended to wash the fridge and freezer chambers at least once a year. This prevents the formation of bacteria and bad odors. Switch off the appliance, using the button (1), remove the food from the chambers and wash them using water with a mild detergent. Then, wipe the chambers dry with a cloth.
Taking out and putting in the shelves*****
Slide the shelf out, then slide it in as much as possible so that its clamp could fit the guide groove (fig. 15).
Taking out and putting in the door shelf*****
Lift the door shelf, remove it, and put it back from the top into its required position (fig. 16).
WARNING! You must not put an electric heater, a heating fan, or a hairdryer into the freezer by any means.

The appliance generates unusual noise

Incorrect levelling of the appliance – level the appliance prop- erly
The appliance is touch- ing furniture and/or other objects – place the appliance at a location that ensures proper clearances around it

 

Certain sounds can be heard during normal use of the refrigerator, which does not affect its correct operation.
Sounds, which can be easily prevented:

  • noise caused by the appliance which is not level – adjust the position with the adjustable turn-in front feet. Alternatively, place pads made of soft material under the rear rollers, especially when the appliance is placed on tiles.
  • touching the adjacent piece of furniture – move the refrigerator away.
  • creaking of the drawers or shelves – take out and put back the drawer or shelf.
  • sounds of clinking bottles – move bottles apart.

Sounds heard during normal use are mainly due to the operation of the thermostat, compressor (switching on), and cooling system (thermal expansion and contraction of the radiator caused by the flow of the cooling agent).
