The first time you use your new fridge freezer, there are a few things you can do to help it last longer and get the most out of it.
When it comes to unpacking, it’s a good idea to follow the basic procedures outlined in this tutorial.
1. Let it stand
Consider how long it will take to’stand’ before you begin.
In order to keep food fresh, refrigerators and freezers contain a large amount of liquid. It’s better to wait until everything has settled before plugging your appliance in during shipping.
Allow at least an hour before plugging it in if it was transported upright.
Turn it right side up if it was shipped that way, and then leave it for at least four hours before returning it.
2. Quick clean
To ensure that it is safe to use, you should clean it before using it for the first time.
You don’t have to do much more than a quick wipe down in each cavity with warm water and dishwashing solutions. Put the sections back in once it’s entirely dry.
3. Choose the right position
Your new appliance can generally go in the same spot as your old one, but it needs to be situated so that air can freely flow around it.
Place the fridge freezer in the middle of the room, not too close to the wall, because you’ll need at least 5mm of clearance all the way around it.
4. Turn it on
The last step is to connect it. It will take several hours for the first time it is turned on for it to reach the proper temperature.
When the temperature inside your refrigerator or freezer is just right, you may hear a beep or see a green light. If yours doesn’t, you should be able to keep food within a few of hours.
Install a regular appliance-size light bulb by opening the fridge’s door and screwing it in.
Plug your refrigerator’s plug into the socket in your kitchen’s refrigerator area. Slowly but surely, install the fridge in its rightful location. If you’re having problems, ask a friend or professional mover for aid.
Ensure that the shelves are at the correct height for your needs before proceeding. Make sure your top shelf can accommodate tall objects like pitchers, jugs, big cartons, and other storage containers in your fridge.
Look for a circular switch above the top rack of the fridge that controls the temperature. Set the thermostat to the desired setting. Typically, this temperature ranges from 35 to 38 degrees Celsius.
