How often should I defrost my freezer? Verified

For optimal use of the freezer it is best to defrost it once every 3-6 months. Ice on the inside of the freezer reduces the available space and increases the use of energy. The thawing process can be accelerated by placing hot water in the drawer or placing bowls of hot water in the freezer.

No, the fridge-freezer needs to stand in an upright position for at least 4 hours before it can be turned on. This is because the coolant liquid needs to settle.

Is it normal that water or ice drops are forming on the back wall of my fridge-freezer? Verified

Yes, this a completely normal phenomenom. The moisture that enters the fridge-freezer with warm air or products will settle on the coldest part, being the back wall. Because the back wall can reach temperatures below freezing, the drops will freeze from time to time. When the fridge-freezer is idle the drops will thaw and flow to the drain of the fridge-freezer.

How long does it take for my refrigerator to reach the set temperature after I turn it on? Verified

This depends on the size, age and model of the refrigerator. It may take several hours to 24 hours for the refrigerator to reach the set temperature. The process can be accelerated by placing non-perishable goods in the refrigerator. The temperature in the refrigerator cannot be measured properly by feeling the air inside. The best way to tell if the refrigerator has reached the set temperature is to place a glass of water in the refrigerator with a thermometer in it.

There is condensation in my refrigerator, why is that? Verified

There can be several causes. The door gasket can be defective, allowing outside air into the refrigerator. It's also possible that the refrigerator is not level, preventing the door from closing correctly. Another cause is a large difference between the temperature inside the refrigerator and outside while the door is being opened frequently.

There is mold on the rubber seals of my fridge-freezer, what should I do? Verified

The rubber seals are not actually inside the fridge-freezer and are therefore warmer. This allows bacteria to grow and mold to form. Clean the rubbers regularly to prevent this.

Could you tell me if the coldest fridge position is 1 or 8? I understand from the instructions that these are degrees, so the coldest = 1 but I would like your confirmation. Because even on 8, it is really cold and freezes the food. I know that there is a "defrost" drawer that is colder than the rest of the fridge, but even outside the drawer, food freezes.
