Installation Instructions
  1. The space in the room where the appliance is installed must not be smaller than 10 cubic metres.
  2. See Installation-Diagram for detailed Installation Instructions.
  3. This appliance has been designed to operate in ambient temperatures up to 38 degrees C (100 degrees F) and is equipped with Freezer Guard technology which ensures that even if the ambient temperature falls to -15°C, frozen food in the freezer does not thaw thanks to this. So, you may then install your appliance in a garage or an unheated room without having to worry about frozen food in the freezer being spoilt.
    However at low ambient temperatures mentioned above, fridge contents are likely to freeze, so check and consume food in the fridge accordingly. When the ambient temperature returns to normal, you may change the knob setting to suit your needs. If the ambient temperature is below 0°C, the food in the fridge compartment will freeze. So, we recommend you don’t use the fridge compartment in such low ambient conditions. You can continue using the freezer compartment as usual.
  4. Do not place the appliance near cookers, radiators or in direct sunlight as this will cause your appliance to work harder. If installed next to a source of heat or freezer, maintain the following minimum side clearances:
    From Cookers 50 mm (2”)
    From Radiators 300 mm (12”)
    From Freezers 25 mm (1”)
  5. Refer to “Maintenance and cleaning” section to prepare your appliance for use.
  6. A special receptacle is supplied to store the mains plug during transit.
    The receptacle is fixed at the back of the cabinet, on the side of the compressor (see diagram). Gently remove the plug from the receptacle.
    Never pull the mains cord, you may damage the appliance. In the case of transportation, ensure you locate the plug in the receptacle provided to avoid transit damage.

Storing Frozen Food

Prepacked commercially frozen food should be stored in accordance with the frozen food manufacturer’s instructions for a Blomberg Frost Free Combi Fridge Freezer Instructions  & troubleshooting 20 frozen food storage compartment. To ensure that the high quality achieved by the frozen food manufacturer and the food retailer is maintained, the following should be remembered:

  1. Put packets in the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase.
  2. Ensure that contents are labelled and dated.
  3. Do not exceed “Use By”, “Best Before” dates on the packaging.

If there is a power failure do not open the door. Frozen food should not be affected if the failure lasts for less than 13 hrs. If the failure is longer, then the food should be checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then re-frozen.

Freezing Fresh Food

Please observe the following instructions to obtain the best results. Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time. The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen right through to the core as quickly as possible. Do not exceed the freezing capacity of your appliance in 24 h which is 4.25 kg (9.35 lb.).
Placing warm food into the freezer compartment causes the refrigeration compressor to operate continuously until the food is frozen solid. This can temporarily lead to excessive cooling of the refrigeration compartment.
You may place fresh food to be frozen in any part of the freezer.
Take special care not to mix already frozen food and fresh food.

Making Ice Cubes

Fill the ice – cube tray 3/4 full with water and place it in the Ice Bank.
Loosen frozen trays with the handle of a spoon, never use sharp edged objects such as knives, forks. Store ice-cubes in the Ice Bank.
Note: If freshly made ice cubes are not consumed for several weeks and stored in Ice Bank, they will slowly reduce in size and eventually disappear completely.

Defrosting

A) Fridge Compartment
The fridge compartment defrosts automatically.
The defrosting water runs to the drain tube via a collection container at the bac of the appliance (1) (see diagram). During defrosting water droplets may form at the back of the fridge compartment where concealed evaporator is located. Some droplets may remain on the liner and refreeze when defrosting is completed.
Do not use pointed or sharp edged objects such as knives, forks to remove the droplets which have frozen. If at any time the defrost water does not drain from the collection channel, check to ensure that no food particles have blocked the drain tube.

The drain tube can be cleared by pushing the special plastic plunger provided down the drain tube (2). If the frost layer reaches about 1/4”(7 mm), reduce the temperature setting to restart automatic defrosting.

Does Blomberg offer replacements?

This is a repair-only guarantee. On occasion, the Manufacturer may at its sole discretion, replace your product with a new product instead of carrying out a repair. Where a replacement is offered, this would normally be an identical model but when this is not possible, a model of similar specification will be provided. The Manufacturer will cover the costs and arrange for the delivery of the new product and for the return of the old product. Any costs related to disconnecting the faulty product and installing the replacement product will not be borne by the Manufacturer unless previously agreed to in writing. The original guarantee will continue to apply to the replacement product; the new product will not come with a new guarantee.

When will the repair take place?

It is your responsibility to provide evidence to the Engineer that your product is covered by this guarantee with a proof of purchase. The Manufacturer reserves the right to charge for the reasonable cost of any service call if:

  • You cannot provide evidence that your product is covered by this guarantee.
  • Where a service call has been made and the engineer finds that there is no fault with your product.
  • That your product has not been installed or operated in accordance with the User Instructions Booklet.
  • That the fault was caused by something other than faulty materials, defective components or manufacturing defects.
  • For missed appointments.

Payment of these costs are due immediately upon the Engineer providing you with an invoice. The Manufacturer reserves the right to terminate the guarantee if you fail to pay the costs for the service call in a timely manner.

If you are a resident of the United Kingdom, this guarantee will be governed by English law and subject to the English Courts, save where you live in another part of the United Kingdom, in which case the law and courts of that location will apply.

If you are resident in the Republic of Ireland, this guarantee will be governed by Irish law and the Irish courts will have jurisdiction.

This guarantee is provided by Beko plc. Beko House, 1 Greenhill Crescent, Watford, Hertfordshire. WD18 8QU.
