Information on Less Frost


Thanks to the wrap around evaporator, Less Frost technology offers more efficient cooling, less manual defrost requirement, and more flexible storage room.

Thermostat Setting

The thermostat automatically regulates the temperature inside the cooler and freezer compartments. Refrigerator temperatures can be obtained by rotating the knob
to higher numbers; 1 to 3, 1 to 5 or SF (Maximum numbers on the thermostat depends on your product.) Important note: Do not try to rotate the knob beyond position 1, it will stop your appliance from working.

Thermostat settings:

  • 1 – 2 : For short-term storage of food
  • 3 – 4 : For long-term storage of food
  • 5 : Maximum cooling position. The appliance will work longer.If required, change the temperature setting.

If device has SF position:

  • Turn the knob to SF to freeze fresh food quickly. In this position, the freezer compartment will operate at lower temperatures. After your food freezes, turn the thermostat knob to its normal use position. If you do not change the SF position, your appliance work will automatically return to its last used thermostat position according to the time indicated in the note. Return the thermostat switch to the SF position and return it to normal use according to the time indicated in the note.If the thermostat switch is in the SF position when your appliance is first started, your appliance work will automatically return to the operation in the thermostat-3 position according to the time indicated in the note.
  • Super freezing: This switch shall be used as superfreeze switch. For maximum freezing capacity, please turn on this switch before 24 hours placing fresh food. After placing fresh food in the freezer, 24 hours ON position is generally sufficient. In order to save energy, please turn off this switch after 24 hours from placingfresh food.
  • Winter Switch : If ambiant temperature is below 16 oC, this switch shall be used as winter switch and it keeps your fridge above 0 oC while freezer is below -18 oC in low ambiants.

Temperature Settings Warnings

  • Your appliance is designed to operate in the ambient temperature ranges stated in the standards, according to the climate class stated in the information label. It is not recommended that your fridge is operated in the environments which are outside of the stated temperature ranges. This will reduce the cooling efficiency of the appliance.
  • Temperature adjustments should be made according to the frequency of door openings, the quantity of food kept inside the appliance and the ambient temperature in the location of your appliance.
  • When the appliance is first switched on, allow it to run for 24 hours in order to reach operating temperature. During this time, do not open the door and do not keep a large quantity of food inside.
  • A 5 minute delay function is applied to prevent damage to the compressor of your appliance when connecting or disconnecting to mains, or when an energy breakdown occurs. Your appliance will begin to operate normally after 5 minutes.

Visual and text descriptions in the accessories section may vary according to the model of your appliance.

Ice Tray (In some models)CANDY CDV1S514EWHE Fridge Freezer

  • Fill the ice tray with water and place in the freezer compartment.
  • After the water has completely frozen, you can twist the tray as shown below to remove the ice cubes.

The Plastic Scraper (In some models)

  • After some time, frost will build up in certain areas of the freezer. The frost accumulated in the freezer should be removed regularly.
  • Use the plastic scraper provided, if necessary. Do not use sharp metal objects for this operation. They could puncture the refrigerator circuit and cause irreparable damage to the unit.

The Bottle Holder (In some models)

Use the bottle holder to prevent bottles from slipping or falling over.


Refrigerator Compartment

  • To reduce humidity and avoid the consequent formation of frost, always store liquids in sealed containers in the refrigerator. Frost tends to concentrate in the coldest parts of the evaporating liquid and, in time, your appliance will require more frequent defrosting.

  • Never place warm food in the refrigerator. Warm food should be allowed to cool at room temperature and should be arranged to ensure adequate air circulation in the refrigerator

  • Make sure no items are in direct contact with the rear wall of the appliance as frost will develop and packaging will stick to it. Do not open the refrigerator door frequently.

  • We recommend that meat and clean fish are loosely wrapped and stored on the glass shelf just above the vegetable bin where the air is cooler, as this provides the best storage conditions.

  • Store loose fruit and vegetable items in the crisper containers.

  • Store loose fruit and vegetables in the crisper.

  • Storing fruit and vegetables separately helps prevent ethylene-sensitive vegetables (green leaves, broccoli, carrot, etc.) being affected by ethylene releaser fruits (banana, peach, apricot, fig etc.).

  • Do not put wet vegetables into the refrigerator.

  • Storage time for all food products depends on the initial quality of the food and an uninterrupted refrigeration cycle before refrigerator storage.

  • To avoid cross-contamination do not store meat products with fruit and vegetables. Water leaking from meat may contaminate other products in the refrigerator. You should package meat products and clean any leakages on the shelves.

  • Do not put food in front of the air flow passage.

  • Consume packaged foods before the recommended expiry date.

Do not allow food to come into contact with the temperature sensor, which is located in the refrigerator compartment, in order to keep the refrigerator compartment at optimum temperature.

  • For normal working conditions, it will be sufficient to adjust the temperature setting of your refrigerator to +4 °C.

  • The temperature of the fridge compartment should be in the range
    of 0-8 °C, fresh foods below 0 °C are iced and rotted, bacterial load increases above 8 °C, and spoils.

  • Do not put hot food in the refrigerator immediately, wait for the temperature to pass outside. Hot foods increase the degree of your refrigerator and cause food poisoning and unnecessary spoiling of the food.

  • Meat, fish, etc. should be store in the chiller compartment of the food, and the vegetable compartment is preferred for vegetables. (if available)

  • To prevent cross contamination, meat products and fruit vegetables are not stored together.

  • Foods should be placed in the refrigerator in closed containers or covered to prevent moisture and odors.

The table below is a quick guide to show you the most efficient way to store the major food groups in your refrigerator compartment.

Food Maximum storage time How and where to store
Vegetables and fruits 1 week Vegetable bin

Meat and


| 2 – 3 Days| Wrap in plastic foil, bags, or in a meat container and store on the glass shelf
Fresh cheese| 3 – 4 Days| On the designated door shelf
Butter and margarine| 1 week| On the designated door shelf
Bottled products

e.g. milk and yoghurt

| Until the expiry date recommended by the producer| On the designated door shelf
Eggs| 1 month| On the designated egg shelf
Cooked food| | All shelves


Potatoes, onions and garlic should not be stored in the refrigerator.

Freezer Compartment

  • The freezer is used for storing frozen food, freezing fresh food, and making ice cubes.
  • For freezing fresh food; wrap and seal fresh food properly, that is the packaging should be air tight and shouldn’t leak. Special freezer bags, aluminum foil polythene bags and plastic containers are ideal.
  • Do not store fresh food next to frozen food as it can thaw the frozen food.
  • Before freezing fresh food, divide it into portions that can be consumed in one sitting.
  • Consume thawed frozen food within a short period of time after defrosting
  • Never place warm food in the freezer compartment as it will thaw the frozen food.
  • Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions on food packaging when storing frozen food. If no information is provided food, should not be stored for more than 3 months from the date of purchase.
  • When purchasing frozen food, make sure that it has been stored under appropriate conditions and that the packaging is not damaged.
  • Frozen food should be transported in appropriate containers and placed in the freezer as soon as possible.
  • Do not purchase frozen food if the packaging shows signs of humidity and abnormal swelling. It is probable that it has been stored at an unsuitable temperature and that the contents have deteriorated.
  • The storage life of frozen food depends on the room temperature, the thermostat setting, how often the door is opened, the type of food, and the length of time required to transport the product from the shop to your home. Always follow the instructions printed on the packaging and never exceed the maximum storage life indicated.
  • The maximum amount of fresh food (in kg) that can be frozen in 24 hours is indicated on the appliance label.
  • To use the maximum capacity of the freezer compartment, use the glass shelves for the upper and middle section, and use the lower basket for the bottom section.
  • Use the fast freezing shelf to freeze home cooking (and any other food which needs to be frozen quickly) more quickly because of the freezing shelf’s greater freezing power. Fast freezing shelf is the bottom drawer of the freezer compartment.

NOTE: If you attempt to open the freezer door immediately after closing it, you will find that it will not open easily. This is normal. Once equilibrium has been reached, the door will open easily.

Defrosting the Refrigerator Compartment

CANDY CDV1S514EWHE Fridge Freezer 6

  • Defrosting occurs automatically in the refrigerator compartment during operation. The water is collected by the evaporation tray and evaporates automatically.
  • The evaporation tray and the water drain hole should be cleaned periodically with the defrost drain plug to prevent the water from collecting at the bottom of the refrigerator instead of flowing out.
  • You can also clean the drain hole by pouring half a glass of water down it.

Freezer defrosting process

  • Small amounts of frost will accumulate inside the freezer, depending on the length of time the door may be left open or the amount of moisture introduced.
  • It is essential to ensure that no frost or ice is allowed to form in places where it will affect the close fitting of the door seal. This might allow air to penetrate the cabinet, encouraging continuous running of the compressor. Thin frost formation is quite soft and can be removed with a brush or plastic scraper. Do not use metal or sharp scrapers, mechanical devices or other means to accelerate the defrosting process. Remove all dislodged frost from the cabinet floor. It is not necessary to switch off the appliance for the removal of thin frost.
  • For the removal of heavy ice deposits, disconnect the appliance from the mains supply, empty the contents into cardboard boxes and wrap in thick blankets or layers of paper to keep cool. Defrosting will be most effective if carried out when the freezer is nearly empty and should be carried out as quickly as possible to prevent an unnecessary increase in the temperature of the contents.
  • Do not use metal or sharp scrapers, mechanical devices or other means to accelerate the defrosting process. An increase in temperature of frozen food during defrosting will shorten the storage life. Keep contents well wrapped and cool while defrosting is taking place.

CANDY CDV1S514EWHE Fridge Freezer 7

  • Dry the inside of the compartment with a sponge or a clean cloth.
  • To accelerate the defrosting process, place one or more bowls of warm water in the freezer compartment.
  • Examine the contents when replacing them in the freezer and if some of the packages have thawed out, they should be eaten within 24hours, or be cooked and re-frozen.
  • After defrosting is complete, clean the inside of the appliance with a solution of warm water and a little bicarbonate of soda, then dry thoroughly. Wash all removable parts in the same way and reassemble. Reconnect the appliance to the mains supply and leave for 2 to 3 hours on setting number ‘5’ before introducing the food back into the freezer.

Replacing LED Lighting

To replace any of the LEDs, please contact the nearest Authorised Service Centre.
Note: The numbers and location of the LED strips may change according to the model.

  • If the product is equipped with an LED lamp This product contains a light source of energy efficiency class .
  • If the product is equipped with LED Strip(s) or LED card(s)
  • This product contains a light source of energy efficiency class .


Transportation and Changing Positioning

  • The original packaging and foam may be kept for re-transportation (optional).
  • Fasten your appliance with thick packaging, bands or strong cords and follow the instructions for transportation on the packaging.
  • Remove all movable parts (shelves, accessories, vegetable bins, and so on) or fix them into the appliance against shocks using bands when re-positioning or transporting.
    Always carry your appliance in the upright position.

Repositioning the Door

  • It is not possible to change the opening direction of your appliance door if door handles are installed on the front surface of the appliance door.
  • It is possible to change the opening direction of the door on models without handles.
  • If the door-opening direction of your appliance can be changed, contact the nearest Authorised Service Centre to change the opening direction.


If your refrigerator is not working properly, there may be a minor problem. Check the following.

The appliance does not operate Check if:

  • There is power
  • The mains is connected
  • The thermostat setting is on the “•” position
  • The socket is defective. To check this, plug another working appliance into the same socket.

The appliance performs poorly Check if:

  • The appliance is overloaded
  • The doors are closed properly
  • There is any dust on the condenser
  • There is enough space near the rear and side walls.

Your appliance is operating noisily Normal noises Cracking noise occurs:

  • During automatic defrosting
  • When the appliance is cooled or warmed (due to expansion of appliance material).
  1. Short cracking noise occurs : When the thermostat switches the compressor on/off.
  2. Motor noise: Indicates the compressor is operating normally. The compressor may cause more noise for a short time when it is first activated.
  3. Bubbling noise and splash occurs: Due to the flow of the refrigerant in the tubes of the system.
  4. Water-flowing noise occurs: Due to water flowing to the evaporation container. This noise is normal during defrosting.
  5. Air blowing noise occurs : In some models during normal operation of the system due to the circulation of air.

The edges of the appliance in contact with the door joint are warm
Especially during summer (warm seasons), the surfaces in contact with the door joint may become warmer during the operation of the compressor, this is normal.

There is a build-up of humidity inside the appliance Check if:

  • All food is packed properly. Containers must be dry before being placed in the appliance.
  • The appliance door is opened frequently. The humidity of the room enters the appliance when the doors are opened. Humidity increases faster when the doors are opened more frequently, especially if the humidity of the room is high.

The door does not open or close properly Check if:

  • There is food or packaging preventing the door from closing
  • The door joints are broken or torn
  • Your appliance is on a level surface.
  • The compressor can run loudly or the noise of the compressor/refrigerator may increase in some models during operating in some conditions such that the product is plugged in for the first time, depending on a change in the ambient temperature or change of usage. That is normal; when the refrigerator reaches the required temperature, the noise decreases automatically.


  • If the appliance is switched off or unplugged, wait at least 5 minutes before plugging the appliance in or restarting it in order to prevent damage to the compressor.

  • The cooling unit of your refrigerator is located at the rear of the appliance.
    Therefore, water droplets or ice may form on the rear surface of your fridge due to the operation of the compressor at specified intervals. This is normal, there is no need to perform a defrosting operation unless there is excessive ice.

  • If you do not intend to use your fridge for a long period of time (such as during the summer holidays), set the thermostat to the “•” position, defrost and clean your fridge, leaving the door open to prevent the formation of mildew and odor.

  • If a problem persists after you have followed all the above instructions, please consult the nearest authorized service center.

  • The appliance you have purchased is designed for domestic use only. It is not suitable for commercial or common use.
    If the consumer uses the appliance in a way that does not comply with this, we emphasize that the manufacturer and the dealer will not be responsible for any repair and failure within the guarantee period.


  1. Install the appliance in a cool, well-ventilated room, but not in direct sunlight and not near a heat source (such as a radiator or oven) otherwise an insulating plate should be used.

  2. Allow warm food and drinks to cool before placing them inside the appliance.

  3. Place thawing food in the refrigerator compartment if available. The low temperature of the frozen food will
    help cool the refrigerator compartment while the food is thawing. This will save energy. Frozen food left to thaw outside of the appliance will result in a waste of energy.

  4. Drinks or other liquids should be covered when inside the appliance. If left uncovered, the humidity inside the appliance will increase, therefore the appliance uses more energy. Keeping drinks and other liquids covered helps preserve their smell and taste.

  5. Avoid keeping the doors open for long periods and opening the doors too frequently as warm air will enter the appliance and cause the compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.

  6. Keep the covers of the different temperature compartments (such as the crisper and chiller if available) closed.

  7. The door gasket must be clean and pliable. In case of wear, replace the gasket.
