How to Use the Electronic Display on your American Style Fridge Freezer

If you’ve recently purchased an American style fridge freezer, you’ll need to know how to use its electronic display. The display on your new fridge freezer can be used to do many helpful things including changing its temperature, setting the holiday mode, and activating the key lock. We’ve put together this handy how-to guide to help you learn how to use your American style fridge freezer’s display.

Changing the Temperature

If you need help changing the temperature in your American style fridge freezer, watch the video above to see how. Or, follow these quick and easy steps to find out how to do this:

  1. Press the top left or top right button to go through the different temperature settings. Note: The left button controls the freezer temperature and the right button controls the fridge temperature.
  2. You’ll see the temperatures displayed just to the side of the buttons
  3. Note: We recommend the average temperature inside the fridge to be around 4°C to 5°C and the freezer temperature to be -18°C for everyday refrigeration use.
  4. Note: If you need to cool items down quickly after a big food shop, you can lower the temperature by pressing the temperature buttons, or you can press the fast freeze or quick cool buttons located underneath the temperature buttons.

Holiday Mode

If you’re going on holiday, your American style fridge freezer comes with a handy feature that can be set so your appliance uses less energy whilst you’re away. Watch the video above to see how to set the holiday mode. Or, follow these quick and easy steps to find out how to do this:

  1. Press the ‘Vacation’ button. Note: It’s best to use this setting after clearing out your fridge.
  2. Once the holiday mode is set, the freezer will continue to run, but the fridge won’t cool anymore and will only run at 15°C to prevent odours and waste less electricity.
  3. The LED display located in the middle of the appliance will change colour to signify that holiday mode has been set

Key Lock

The key lock is a great feature which once activated, prevents any settings from being accidentally adjusted by yourself or your little ones. Simply press the key lock button once to activate this feature. Watch the video above to see how to do this.

    Water and Ice Dispenser

    Your American style fridge freezer comes with a water and ice dispenser that allows you to enjoy cool water on tap as well as the option of whole or crushed ice. Simply press the ‘dispenser’ button until the setting you want appears. The display will show you a different image depending on your chosen option. Watch the video above to see how to do this.
