Cleaning care

Details how to clean a large number of things such as the humidity control system and remove trays.

Humidity Control System

When cleaning the shelf above the vegetable bins, we recommend that you do not disassemble the Humidity Control System from the shelf.

In the event that the humidity control lid (plastic lid) and humidity slides become separated from the glass shelf, follow these instructions to reassemble.

  1. Turn shelf upside down

  2. To attach humidity slides onto shelf front corners, fit bottom clips into shelf front trim. Next, slide sideways towards shelf until arm clips onto glass.



  1. To attach humidity control lid – with text facing you, align lid with front of shelf. Hold lid vertically and fit front end into retainer on shelf. Ensure lid fits into retainer as well as underneath humidity slides.



  1. At the sides of the shelf, adjust humidity slide tabs so that the plastic lid is between the shelf and the tabs.

  2. If clips on back of shelf are present, fasten lid with rear clips. Ensure that the cover is fully secure at front and back of shelf.



  Humidity Control System cleaning

To remove produce bins or upper freezer bins

  • To remove bins, roll out the tray and then use two hands when picking up a bin. Picking up a bin one-handed may cause it to crack or break.
  • Remove the bins, wash and replace back onto trays.


Tray removal

To remove trays

  • For ease of removal, empty food from tray/remove the bins from the tray first.
  • Hold the centre front of the tray handle.
  • Lift vertically to unclip from the runners and pull tray towards you to remove.
  • Push both runners back into refrigerator.

To replace trays

  • With the runners pushed back into the refrigerator, place the tray on top of the runners. Push the tray back slowly until you feel it clip back onto the runners.

  • Ensure that trays are securely clipped onto the runners before use.
  • Tray runners are pre-lubricated, and will not need to be re-lubricated during their life. Do not attempt to clean grease from the runners, as this will affect their ability to function. Do not immerse runners in water.

Permanently fixed bins and trays (Freezer drawer models only)

The freezer bins and trays in this model are permanently fixed. They cannot be removed from the freezer compartment. To clean simply wipe with a soft, damp cloth.

Ice storage bin

All models

  • When going on vacation/holiday we recommend cleaning your ice bin and discarding any old ice in the bottom of the bin(s) before leaving.
  • When cleaning use only liquid dishwashing detergent dissolved in warm water and a soft lint-free cloth. Rinse with clean water and dry with a clean, lint-free cloth.
  • When replacing the bin ensure that the ice scoop is positioned at the front.
