Operating Instructions

 

Internal Control Panel

The internal control panel enables you to view and modify all the features and options of your refrigerator.

Temperature Control

  • When the refrigerator is first turned on, the cooling system will automatically cool both refrigerator and freezer compartments to their set temperatures. This will take between 2 – 3 hours.
  • It is recommended to check the operation of the refrigerator periodically once every 4 hours up to a period of 24 hours.
  • The two compartment temperatures are accurately and independently controlled and do not change with the temperature or humidity of the surroundings, whether summer or winter.
  • If you wish to alter the temperature of either the fresh food compartment or freezer compartment, this can be easily done by using the internal control panel located on the right hand side of the refrigerator compartment.
  • Once food is added to the product, allow at least 12 hours for the product to reach the selected cooling temperatures.
  • If at any time you notice that the refrigerator is not cooling properly, call your installer/Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician to verify the unit is operating properly. Take immediate steps to prevent food from spoiling by storing in another refrigerator or freezer.
