I have just had my fridge freezer delivered, how long should I wait before using it?

Last Update date :2017.04.19

Once the unit is in the house you should:

  • Leave the appliance to sit for 2 hours.
  • Then plug it in and switch it on.
  • It should then be left overnight to stabilize before putting any fresh food into it.

The ideal setting for the refrigerator is +4C and -18C for the freezer.


You can turn on the quick freeze feature on a couple of hours prior to putting food in, as this will lower the temperature to between -21 and -26 so that the food will chill down to -18 faster.
