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