BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE

Before Using your Fridge

Information on the Frost Free technology
Blomberg Frost Free Combi Refrigerator Freezer Fridge User Manual  & troubleshooting 2

The Frost Free refrigerators are different from the other static refrigerators in terms of their operational system.
In normal fridges, the humidity entering the fridge due to opening the door and the humidity inherent in the food causes freezing in the freezer compartment. To defrost the frost and ice in the freezer compartment, you are periodically required to turn off the fridge, place the food that needs to be kept frozen in a separately cooled container and remove the ice gathered in the freezer compartment.
The situation is completely different in no-frost fridges. Dry and cold air is blown into the fridge and freezer compartments homogeneously and evenly from several points via a blower fan. Cold air dispersed homogeneously and evenly between the shelves cools all of your food equally and uniformly, thus preventing humidity and freezing  .

ARRANGING FOOD IN THE APPLIANCE

Refrigerator compartment

  • To reduce humidity and consequent increase of frost never place liquids in unsealed containers in the refrigerator. Frost tends to concentrate in the coldest parts of the evaporator and in time will require more frequent defrosting.
  • Never place warm food in the refrigerator. Warm food should be allowed to cool at room temperature and should be arranged to ensure adequate air circulation in the refrigerator compartment.
  • Nothing should touch on the back wall as it will cause frost and the packages can stick on the back wall. Do not open the refrigerator door too frequently.
  • Arrange the meat and cleaned fish(wrapped in packages or sheets of plastic) which you will use in 1-2 days,in the bottom section of the refrigerator compartment(that is above the crisper) as this is the coldest section and will ensure the best storing conditions.
  • You can put the fruits and vegetables into crisper without packing. Some recommendations have been specifed below for the placement and storage of your food in the cooling compartment.
    NOTE: Potatoes, onions and garlic should not be stored in the refrigerator.

  • The doors are closed perfectly,
  • There is no dust on the condenser,
  • There is enough place at the rear and side

If your fridge-freezer is operating too loudly;

To maintain the set cooling level, compressor may be activated from time to time. Noises from your fridge-freezer at this time are normal and due to its function. When the required cooling level is reached, noises will be decreased automatically. If the noises persist;

  • Is your appliance stable? Are the legs adjusted?
  • Is there anything behind your fridge-freezer?
  • Are the shelves or dishes on the shelves vibrating? Re-place the shelves and/or dishes if this is the
  • Are the items placed on your fridge-freezer vibrating?

Normal Noises;

Cracking (Ice cracking) Noise:

  • During automatic
  • When the appliance is cooled or warmed (due to expansion of appliance material).

Short cracking: Heard when the thermostat switches the compressor on/off.

 BEFORE CALLING YOUR AFTER SALES SERVICE

Compressor noise (Normal motor noise): This noise means that the compressor operates normally Compressor may cause more noise for a short time when it is activated.
Bubbling noise and splash: This noise is caused by the flow of the refrigerant in the tubes of the system.
Water flow noise: Normal flow noise of water flowing to the evaporation container during defrosting. This noise can be heard during defrosting.
Air Blowing Noise (Normal fan noise): This noise can be heard in No-Frost refrigerator during normal operation of the system due to the circulation of air.

If there is water in the lower part of the fridge freezer, Check that;

  • The drain hole for defrost water is not clogged (Use defrost drain plug to clean the drain hole)

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • If the appliance is not used for long time (for example during the summer holidays) unplug and clean the appliance and leave the door open to prevent the formation of mildew and
  • To stop the appliance completely, unplug from the mains socket (for cleaning and when the doors are left open)
  • If there is still a problem with your fridge freezer although you have followed the instructions in this book, please consult your nearest authorized service center.

 TIPS FOR SAVING ENERGY

  1. Install the appliance in a cool, well ventilated room , but not in direct sunlight and not near a heat source (radiator, cooker.. etc). Otherwise use an insulating plate.
  2. Allow warm food and drinks to cool down outside the 3.When thawing frozen food, place it in the refrigerator compartment.
    The low temperature of the frozen food will help to cool the refrigerator compartment when it is thawing. This will help to save energy. If the frozen food is put out, it results in a waste of energy.
  1. Cover drinks or other liquids when placing them in the appliance Otherwise humidity increases in the appliance. Therefore, the working time gets Also covering drinks and other liquids helps to preserve smell and taste.
  2. Try to avoid keeping the doors open for long periods or opening the doors too frequently as warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the compressor to switch on unnecessarily
  3. Keep the covers of the different temperature compartments (crisper, chiller …etc ) closed
  4. Door gasket must be clean and Replace gaskets if worn.
