Accessing your ice

Information about your manual ice system

  • To make ice, take the ice tray and lid from on top of the ice storage bin. Remove the lid from the ice tray and fill the tray with water. Place the lid back on the ice tray and carefully position it back onto the ice storage bin.
  • Once the ice is solid, take the ice tray and lid off the ice storage bin, remove the lid from the tray and twist the ice tray at each end in opposite directions. Turn the ice tray over the ice storage bin to dislodge the cubes into the bin.
  • Fill the ice tray with clean water and repeat to fill the ice storage bin.
  • Attached to the ice storage bin is the ice scoop which provides hygienic access to ice.
  • To access ice cubes, take the ice tray and lid from the top of the ice storage bin and place onto a flat surface. Take the scoop from the front of the bin, scoop cubes into vessel and then replace the scoop, tray and lid back to the top of the bin.
  • For maximum ice storage, level the stored cubes around the bin with the ice scoop.
  • If ice is not used often, old cubes will become cloudy, taste stale, will shrink and may stick together. Empty the ice storage bin periodically and wash in lukewarm water. Dry thoroughly and place back in the correct position.

Ice trays and lid

  • To make ice, remove the lid from the ice tray and fill the tray with water. Place the lid back on the ice tray and carefully position it on a flat surface in the freezer compartment.
  • To empty the ice cubes into the lid, hold the tray and lid together and twist the ends of the tray in opposite directions to dislodge.
  • Refill the ice tray with water and store in the freezer.
  • Ice cubes are best stored in a closed container or plastic bag as they readily absorb odours and tastes from other foods.
