  • Maintain proper refrigerator tempratiures
    • Take a look at the temperature control/thermostat; it should be turned to 'ON' position.
    • Then make sure that the power cord/cable is plugged into the working electrical wall socket.
    • It is better to check the appropriate circuit breakers or fuse of the fuse box and reset if necessary.
    • The required voltage may not be available
    • If all above is checked and you feel that the same is in OK condition then it may be that the refrigerator has gone into defrost mode.
  • Storage tips for vegetables & fruits
    • KEEPING VEGETABLES FROM DRYING IN THE REFRIGERATOR

      To keep vegetables from turning brown or becoming "soft" or dry in the refrigerator, storage guidelines should be followed carefully. Below given are some storage tips to help maximize vegetable storage.

    • STORE VEGETABLES IN VEGETABLE TRAYS/CRISPERS

      To keep vegetables from turning brown or becoming "soft"or dry in the refrigerator, storage guidelines should be followed carefully. Below given are some storage tips to help maximize vegetable storage.

    • WRAP CERTAIN VEGETABLES

      To keep vegetables from turning brown or becoming "soft" or dry in the refrigerator, storage guidelines should be followed carefully. Below given are some storage tips to help maximize vegetable storage.

    • REMOVE EXCESS WATER

      Vegetables need a certain amount of moisture to remain fresh as long as possible. However, too much moisture can reduce the life of vegetables, especially lettuce. Brown spots may develop with excess moisture. It is necessary to note that lettuce be well drained before storing. It may be better to keep a layer of paper towels in the bottom of the bag to absorb any excess moisture; replace them occasionally.

    • CONSIDER VEGETABLE QUALITY

      Vegetable quality affects the length of storage period. Quality can vary from item to item, variety to variety and season to season. Sort vegetables before storage and use soft vegetables first. Discard that showing evidence of decay.

    • FRUITS AND VEGETABLES STORAGE

      Crisper/Vegetable tray is designed for storing fruit and vegetable. It traps moisture to help keep foods fresh. Controls on some crisper/vegetable tray regulate the humidity level in it. As a general rule, vegetables need high humidity while most fruits require low humidity.

      Sort fruits and vegetables before storing. Beaten or crushed pieces decay more quickly and contaminate good pieces. Wrap odourous foods such as onions.

  • Storage tips for meat, cheese & eggs
    • Fresh meat, luncheon meat and cheese should be stored in the coldest part of the refrigerator to extend storage time. A temperature control/air control adjusts the amount of cold air entering the freezer.
  • Storage tips for dairy foods
    • Most dairy foods have freshness dates on their cartons, so you know how long you can safely store them. These foods should be refrigerated immediately upon purchase and use, each time. Close cartons tightly to keep out air and odors.
    • At times, fungus develops on the top surface of cheese. Cut off at least 25 mm around and below the spoiled area. The remaining cheese will still be flavourful and safe to eat. Do not try to save individual cheese slices, soft cheese, paneer, cream, sour cream, or yogurt when fungus appears.
  • Storage tips for wine
    • Corked wines could be stored in a horizontal position to prevent the cork from drying and shrinking. Storing wine bottles in an upright position lets air into the wine causing it to spoil.
  • Keeping your family away from food critic illness

    Bacteria causes food critic illness increase at temperatures of 4 - 60℃. Three general rules to follow to help keep your food safe:

    • Keep Foods Clean - Handle food with clean hands. Keep the refrigerator interior clean to stop contamination.
    • Keep Foods Hot - Once food is cooked, it must be kept hot (above 60℃) until serving. Bacterial growth increases greatly when cooked foods remain at room temperature for longer than two hours. Avoid cooling leftovers on the counter before refrigerating.
    • Keep Foods Cold - Refrigerator and freezer temperatures do not kill bacteria but, will slow its growth. Colder the food, the slower is bacteria growth.
  • Freezing do's and dont's
    • How to prepare food before putting it in the freezer?

      When freezing foods, use a freezer wrap that is air/moisture/vapor-proof, such as freezer bags, aluminum foil or select airtight containers. Force as much air out of packages or containers as possible and be sure they are tightly sealed. Trapped air can cause the food to dry out.

      Fresh meats and poultry can be left in the original store wrapping when freezing for less than 2 weeks. For longer freezer storage, wrap additionally with a suitable freezer wrap.

      The refrigerator freezer compartment should be lower than -15℃ with an optimum temperature of -13℃. Check the temperature by placing appropriate thermometer between two frozen items. Read after a day. If needed, adjust the temperature/air control setting and check the temperature after another day.

    • Is there a correct way to load the freezer?

      Actually, yes! You should avoid adding too much warm food to the freezer. This slows the rate of freezing and can raise the temperature of already frozen foods. The result is lower food quality. Put packages in the coldest part of the freezer first (against the walls or bottom of the compartment). Leave space between packages for cold air circulation.

      Also, avoid storing hard-to-freeze items such as ice cream and orange juice on the freezer door shelves. These foods are best stored in the freezer interior where the temperature variation is minimum with door openings.

    • What To Do when Your Refrigerator Stops Working?

      You won't necessarily have to throw out all your food! But in the event of a power failure or appliance malfunction, you may need to take steps to ensure the safety of perishable foods. If the power will be restored or a service technician can repair it within a few hours, don't worry - just ensure to keep the doors closed. After the refrigerator begins working again, examine the food. Meat or poultry that still contains ice crystals may be refrozen. Completely thawed foods should be cooked. After cooking, they can be frozen again. If you have any other question which is not covered above. You can e-mail your question at this address & we will be happy to send you our response by mail. (At the end of each question the following should be stated and feedback system be started to find out usage and effectiveness of our efforts.)

      SOLUTION : Be sure the floor is leveled and can adequately support Refrigerator. Adjust the leveling legs or rollers as needed.

    • Install the refrigerator away from direct sunlight, draught of air or any other heat generating appliances like stove, oven etc.
    • In case of models with external condenser, clean the condenser coils periodically (once in 6 months). Always keep them free from dust and lint.
    • Refrigerator components like compressors generate heat, so provide enough breathing space around refrigerator (min. 100 mm) for continuous airflow around refrigerator. If the heat can't escape, the refrigerator's cooling system will work harder and consume more electrical energy.
    • Check door gasket for any air leakage. Door gaskets should provide a tight seal. Replace gaskets that have become hard or out of shape or leaving small gap.
    • In case of direct cool or conventional models, defrost it regularly (when frost builds up over freezer is about 6 mm thick). A defrosted refrigerator operates more efficiently than one that is ice-coated.
    • Keep the frequency & duration of door opening to the minimum. For this, think about what you need to take out or store before opening refrigerator door. You'll reduce the amount of time the door remains open.
    • Fully loaded refrigerator is fine but ensure adequate air circulation inside.
    • Never place hot food inside the refrigerator; allow it to cool it room temperature before storing in the refrigerator. Also allow foods to cool in refrigerator prior to freezing.
      For proper food safety, food should be refrigerated within two hours of being cooked. Leave container covers loosely fitted/little open so that food cools faster then tightly covered.
    • Cover/wrap all food stuff; especially liquids, leafy vegetables etc.
    • Do not use refrigerator on maximum setting unnecessarily.
    • Myth - Refrigerators are supposed to add coldness to the food inside of it.
    • Truth - Refrigerators do not add cooling, they actually remove the heat from the food and the air inside it. This heat is then transferred to the exterior condenser that in turn is absorbed by the air in the room.
