Moving or storing your appliance

If your appliance is turned off for any reason, wait 10 minutes before turning it back on. This will allow the refrigeration system pressure to equalise before restarting.

Moving your appliance

  • Turn off the appliance and unplug from the power point. Remove all food.
  • Ease the appliance out of its position. Tuck the power cord away, tape the bins in place and tape the lid shut.
  • Relocate and install. If the appliance has been left on its side for any length of time, leave it standing upright for at least 2 – 3 hours before turning on.

Storing your appliance

  • When storing your cleaned appliance, leave the lid open. This allows air to circulate and prevents the build-up of bacteria and moulds.
  • Before using again, clean well using a mixture of warm water and a small amount of liquid dishwashing detergent. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft lint-free cloth.

Holiday time

  • We recommend you leave your appliance operating while you are on holiday.
