About the Fresh Food Compartment

It is recommended to leave storage space between the foods for good cold air circulation. The temperatures in the refrigerator are slightly warmer near the top and colder near the base. Suggestions for storage (Fig. 2.2):

AGA ASXS21 Fridge Freezer User Manual - Fig 2.2

  1. Eggs, butter, cheese, etc.
  2. Cooked meats, sausage, etc.
  3. Drinks and all kinds of bottled foods.
  4. Meat, poultry, fish and raw foods.
  5. Pickled foods, drinks or cans.
  6. Flour foods, cans, dairy, etc.
  7. Fruits, vegetables or salads.
  8. Tins, cans, condiments, etc.

General Features of Your Appliance

  1. The cooler and freezer compartments have separate air circulation systems due to our new No-Frost technology. This ensures that no odours pass between compartments, and vegetables remain fresh for longer periods.
  2. The energy efficient fan maintains air circulation by running independently of the compressor. Thus, a uniform and balanced air circulation is created between cooler shelves.
  3. Through specific air conduit design, the fans distribute cold air from multiple vents on all shelves in the cooler.
  4. By special patented application, display edges and corners form a smooth surface against the door and ensure a perfect aesthetic appearance. The touch operated electronic panel allows easy access of temperature controls and provides an aesthetically even view.
  5. The appliance contains LEDs which gradually illuminate, rather than sudden bright lights. The LEDs reach 100% brightness within a few seconds after the door is opened.
  6. A telescopic rail is used in the chiller compartment to ensure that the chiller operates easily and quietly.
  7. The chiller door includes a self-closing function to avoid slamming or being left open.

General notes:

Fresh Food Compartment (Fridge): Most efficient use of energy is ensured in the configuration with the drawers in the bottom part of the appliance, and shelves evenly distributed, position of door bins does not affect energy consumption.
Freezer Compartment (Freezer): Most Efficient use of energy is ensured in the configuration with the drawers and bins are on stock position.

Even-circ

Even-circ, prevents fresh food losing moisture. This technology ensures that air circulates evenly throughout the fridge compartment, this helps prevent food from drying out.
Fresh food then maintains its texture and taste of food by preventing any humidity loss.

Using the appliance

Lighting
When the product is plugged in for the first time, the interior lights may turn on 1 minute late due to opening tests.
Information on No-Frost Technology (Fig. 2.3)

AGA ASXS21 Fridge Freezer User Manual - Fig 2.3

No-frost refrigerators have a different operating system to static refrigerators. In normal (static) fridges, the humidity entering the fridge due to opening the door and the humidity inherent in the food causes ice to form in the freezer compartment.

To remove the frost and ice from the freezer compartment, it is required to periodically switch the fridge off and place frozen food in a separate cooled container.

The situation is completely different in Nofrost fridges. A built-in fan blows dry and cold air evenly into the cooler and freezer compartments. The cold air disperses uniformly between the shelves, ensuring all your food is cooled evenly, thus preventing humidity and icing to occur.

Therefore, your No-frost fridge allows ease of use, in addition to its huge capacity and stylish appearance.

Shelves

The height of the cantilever shelves can be adjusted to fit your storage needs.
⚠  When opening or closing the dairy bin, please take care not to trap your fingers (Fig. 2.4).

AGA ASXS21 Fridge Freezer User Manual - Fig 2.4

Accessories

Ice tray (Fig. 2.5)

AGA ASXS21 Fridge Freezer User Manual - Fig 2.5
Hold the icebox from the front and pull it toward you to remove it.
Fill the icebox with water and replace it. Ice will be ready after approximately 2 hours. Extract the icebox to serve the ice.
When replacing the icebox after filling it with water, make sure it is positioned horizontally. If it is tilted, water inside the icebox may spill onto the basket.

Vegetable Bowl and Chiller (Breakfast) (Fig. 2.6)AGA ASXS21 Fridge Freezer User Manual - Fig 2.6

This compartment can be used as a chiller compartment, where food can be kept at 0°C. Frozen food can be kept in this compartment to defrost. Meat and/or clean fish (in plastic bags or packets), which will be consumed within 1 to 2 days, can also be stored here.
Water freezes at 0°C, but food containing salt or sugar freezes at colder temperatures.
Do not put food to be frozen or iceboxes in this compartment.

Crisper Air Setting button (Fig. 2.7)

AGA ASXS21 Fridge Freezer User Manual - Fig 2.7

Turn the air adjustment knob between the crisper and chiller to the open position when the crisper is full. Food in the crisper will remain fresh for a longer period of time.

Ionizer / Range Fresh

Ethylene gas is emitted by some fruits and vegetables and causes the fresh groceries to start ripening. When this gas is produced in an enclosed environment, it is re-absorbed by the fruit and vegetables and further accelerates the aging process.
This fridge freezer provides two different solutions to this naturally occurring problem:

Ionizer (Fig. 2.8)

AGA ASXS21 Fridge Freezer User Manual - Fig 2.8
Ionizer spreads negative ions which neutralize particles of unpleasant smell and dust in the air.
By removing these particles from the air in the refrigerator, Ionizer improves air quality and eliminates odours.

Range Fresh (Fig. 2.9)AGA ASXS21 Fridge Freezer User Manual - Fig 2.9
Range Fresh Preserver helps to remove ethylene gas (a bioproduct released naturally from fresh foods) and unpleasant odors from the crisper.
It must be regenerated once a year under a full day sunlight for 24 hours, for example on a window sill.
To regenerate the filter, remove the casing of the filter box by pulling it in the direction of the arrow (Fig. 2.9).
The filter should not be washed with water or in any detergent.

About the Freezer Compartment

Note: Do not pull the freezer drawers with too much force as food may fall out. Do not overpack the drawer otherwise food will fall out when opening too fast.
⚠  Make sure that the two sides of the shelf are in level positions otherwise food may drop off. The shelves will not pull out accidentally when you remove foodstuff from the appliance. The freezer compartment is used for freezing fresh food, for storing frozen food, and for making ice cubes. If the freezer door has been left open for a long time or not closed properly, frost will form and can prevent efficient air circulation. To resolve this, unplug the freezer and wait for it to defrost. Clean the freezer once it has fully defrosted. Remove baskets, covers, and so on, to increase the storage volume of freezer. The freezer volume stated on the label is the volume without baskets, covers, and so on.
⚠  IMPORTANT
Do not refreeze thawed food. It may pose a danger to your health and cause problems such as food poisoning. Do not put warm food in the deep freeze compartment until it has completely cooled. It will thaw already frozen food, which may then rot. When purchasing frozen food, make sure it has been stored under appropriate conditions and the packaging is not damaged. Do not purchase frozen food if the packaging shows signs of humidity or if it has a foul odour. The food may not have been stored correctly and may have gone rotten. 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 freezer. Always follow the instructions printed on the packaging and never exceed the maximum storage life indicated. NOTE: Remove frozen food from the freezer the day before consumption, and put in the bottom compartment of the refrigerator. This helps reduce the temperature in the refrigerator, which in turn saves energy. If the frozen food defrosts in an open area, energy loss will occur. 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.

4. Food Storage Tips

Food storage

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 compartment.
  • 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.
    NOTE: Potatoes, onions and garlic should not be stored in the refrigerator. The table Table 4.1 is a quick guide to show you the most efficient way to store the major food groups in your refrigerator compartment.
  • 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.

AGA ASXS21 Fridge Freezer User Manual - Table 4.1

Tips on Storing Fresh Food

  • Make sure that foods, which have been cooked and require chilling, are at room temperature before placing them into the appliance. Make sure that these foods are stored in suitable containers.
  • Foods stored in the refrigerator should be cleaned and dried before storing.
  •  Before foods are put into the refrigerator, it is recommended that the foods should be pressurised, so that the water cannot vaporise, and the fruits and vegetables keep fresh and food smells will not mix.
  • Stored foods can be marked in bags.
  • Foods eaten daily should be stored at the front of the shelf.
  • Make sure that foodstuffs are stored systematically (raw meats with raw meats, dairy with dairy) to avoid flavour transfer and cross contamination. Raw meats should be stored towards the bottom of the appliance to prevent the possibility of it dripping onto uncooked food. Other foods should be stored above raw meat.
  • When storing food in the fresh food section always make sure there is adequate space for airflow circulation. This helps to maintain the shelf life of the food.
  • When storing food in the refrigerator make sure that foods are not too close to the rear wall to avoid the risk of freezing.
  • It is suggested for radishes and other root vegetables to trim the leaves. This keeps the nutrition in the root and not absorbed by the leaves.
  • Put frozen foods into the fresh food area to let them defrost. The low temperature of the refrigerator reduces the formation of bacteria and extends food life.
  • Some foods like onions, garlic, bananas and root vegetables are better stored at room temperature than in the fridge.
  • Melon, pineapples and bananas can go directly into the freezer after preparing, for storage over a longer period.
  • Packaging fresh foods properly, using the correct temperature and taking into account food hygiene, will enhance the quality of fresh foods stored within this appliance.
  • Use plastic bags, aluminium foil or other food wraps to cover fresh foods not in packaging to prevent flavour transfer and prevent contamination.
  • Before storing items in multi-packs (i.e. yoghurt) remove any excess packaging.
    NEVER store anything that is flammable, volatile or explosive inside the appliance.
  • Beverages with high alcohol content should be stored vertically in tightly sealed bottles.
  • Delicate foods should be stored in the coolest part of the appliance.
  • Try not to open the door too often.
  • Set the thermostat to make sure that foods remain suitably cold; try to avoid freezing within the fridge. Using a thermometer will help you to judge how cool the appliance is. Place it into a glass of water and leave it inside the appliance for several hours to get a reliable reading.
  • Some foods contain natural oils and acids (e.g. citric acid) which can damage plastics if spilled ­ make sure these foods are suitably contained.
  • Unpleasant odours inside the fridge are a sign that something has spilled and cleaning is required. Using warm water with bicarbonate of soda will clean the interior of the appliance and remove most spillages (see `Cleaning and Maintenance’).
  • Always remember to remove perishable foods from this appliance before taking prolonged trips of holidays.

Tips on Freezing Food

  • As with storing fresh foods, suitable packaging, correct temperature and food hygiene will enhance the quality of the food you are freezing.
  • Avoid putting hot foods into the freezer. First let them cool until they reach room temperature.
  •  Make sure that all foods for freezing are of a high quality, and suitable for freezing.
  • Use packaging material that is odourless and airproof (such as plastic bags) to store food in so different foods can be mixed without affecting the quality. Make sure that it is airtight. Leaking packaging will dehydrate the products and lead to loss of beneficial vitamins.
  • Keep the surface of the packaging dry ­ this keeps the packs from freezing together.
  • Mark packages with the kind of food contained and the date of storage.
  •  Food needs to be frozen quickly, so it is best to freeze small portions whenever possible and ensure that they are as cold as possible before storage. The recommended maximum weight for each portion is 2.5 kg.
  • Keep food which is fresh away from food which is already frozen, if you need to freeze fresh food every day, make sure that it is in small portions to prevent this.
  • Do not exceed the maximum load for freezing, please refer to the “Technical Data”.
  • Write the expiry date and food names on the outside of the packaging so you can be assured of the food type and when it is safe to eat.
  • Take food from the freezer to defrost when needed. Defrosted food cannot be refrozen unless it is cooked.
  •  Do not put too much fresh food into the freezer at once. This could go beyond the freezer’s cooling capacity. Please refer to the “Technical Data”.
    When storing commercially frozen foods, please follow these guidelines:
  • Always follow manufacturers’ guidelines for the length of time you should store food for. Do not exceed these guidelines!
  • Try to keep the length of time between purchase and storage as short as possible to preserve food quality.
  • Buy frozen foods, which have been stored at a temperature of ­18 °C or below.
  • Avoid buying food which has ice or frost on the packaging ­ This indicates that the products might have been partially defrosted and refrozen at some point ­ temperature rises affect the quality of food.
  • Should there be a power cut, or the freezer / refrigeration appliance fail for any length of time you may need to remove food from the freezer and store in a cold, hygienic place (i.e. garage or out house area) until the power is restored, or the appliance is repaired.
  • To prevent undue temperature rises you should wrap the foods in layers of insulating material, such as newspaper, to help to maintain their temperature. It is also important that any food affected by this situation should be either consumed or cooked and refrozen (where suitable) soon afterwards in order to prevent health risks.
  • Layers of newspaper can also be used to help keep foods cold while you are defrosting the freezer (see `Cleaning and Maintenance’).

5. Food Storage Table

DocNo.031-0004 – Cooking table – electric & fan single cavity

All storage times given in the table below are intended to be used as a guide only. Storage times of fruits and vegetables depend on the quality of the food. Individual cases may vary.
Packaged fruits and vegetables are consumed until expiration.

⚠  Important
The taste of some spices found in cooked dishes (anise, basilica, watercress, vinegar, assorted spices, ginger, garlic, onion, mustard, thyme, marjoram, black pepper, etc.) changes and they assume a strong taste when they are stored for a long period of time. Therefore, add small amounts of spices to food to be frozen, or the desired spice should be added after the food has thawed

The storage time of food is dependent on the type of oil used. Suitable oils are margarine, calf fat, olive oil and butter. Unsuitable oils are peanut oil and pig fat.
Food in liquid form should be frozen in plastic cups/ tupperware and other food should be frozen in plastic folios or bags.
The table below is a quick guide to show you the most efficient way to store the major food groups in your freezer compartment.

6. Cleaning and Maintenance

Defrosting

Defrosting is done automatically so there is no need to manually defrost this appliance.
⚠ DO NOT use mechanical devices to accelerate the defrosting process.
Cleaning
⚠  Disconnect the appliance from the power supply before cleaning.
⚠ Do not wash your appliance by pouring water on it.
⚠ DO NOT use harsh abrasives, or aggressive cleaners as these can damage the interior of the appliance.
⚠ The fridge is heavy. When moving the refrigerator be careful to protect the floor. Keep the refrigerator vertical and do not tilt the refrigerator ­ this prevents damage to the floor.
⚠ DO NOT spray or rinse the fridge with water or other liquids. This could harm the electrical parts.
⚠ Use a dry cloth when cleaning near the electrical parts (such as the light bulb or switch).
⚠ DO NOT clean the fridge with a stiff or wire brush.
⚠  DO NOT use an organic solvent such as detergent, petrol, lacquer, thinners, acetone or acid.
⚠ To prevent your skin sticking to cold steel parts, make sure your hands are not wet when touching the parts.
⚠ DO NOT use HOT water to clean the glass shelves, as they may break or crack.
To keep internal odours to a minimum it is best to periodically clean the inside shelves, crispers, bins and wall.
Empty the appliance of food and remove the shelves.

Clean the interior using warm water and bicarbonate of soda with a soft cloth. Make sure that the interior is then dried carefully with a suitable cloth.

After washing, rinse with clean water and dry carefully. When you have finished cleaning, reconnect the plug to the mains supply with dry hands.

Shelves and other accessories (plastic and glass parts) can be cleaned in the sink using liquid dishwashing liquid and warm water. Make sure all soap is rinsed off and all parts are dry before replacing them inside the appliance.

Always keep the door seals clean.

Make sure that no water enters the lamp housing and other electrical components.

The appliance should be cleaned regularly using a solution of bicarbonate of soda and lukewarm water.

Clean the accessories separately by hand with soap and water. Do not wash accessories in a dish washer.

Clean the condenser with a brush at least twice a year. This will help you to save on energy costs and increase productivity.

Cleaning the evaporation bowl:
Your fridge defrosts automatically. Water produced by defrosting flows into an evaporation container, passing through a water collecting groove, where it vaporizes.

Replacing LED Lighting
If your fridge has LED lighting contact the help desk as this should be changed by authorized personnel only.
The LED interior lights come on when the door is opened. The performance of the light is not affected by any of the appliances other settings.

Shutting Off the Refrigerator (Powerless)
In the event of a power cut, food should remain safely cold for about 3 hours. DO NOT open doors to fridge or freezer, this will cause a reduction in safe storage time.

Should there be a prolonged power cut you may need to remove food from the freezer compartment and store it in a cold place, wrapped in layers of newspaper to preserve suitable temperatures.

Once power is restored replace the food back into the freezer compartment.
Should food begin to defrost, or the power cut last longer than expected, it is advised that you consume any food removed from the freezer.

If the power outage is short term, most foods can be left inside the freezer compartment ­ this is the best way of preserving temperature ­ and surrounded by ice cubes from the icebox. This is also an ideal solution for power outages you may have been pre-warned about.

When experiencing a power cut of any kind, do not add any extra foods to the freezer.

When not in use

If you are not using the appliance for an extended length of time, it is recommended that you switch off the electrical supply, empty any food out, clean the inside of the appliance and leave the door ajar. This will save energy, and also prevent a build up of stale odours inside.

7. Troubleshooting

Before calling for service, please first read the following table: this could save you time and money.

AGA ASXS21 Fridge Freezer User Manual - Troubleshooting

If you are experiencing a problem with your appliance, please check the following before contacting the after-sales service. Your appliance does not operate Check if:

  •  There is power
  • The plug is connected to the socket correctly
  • The socket fuse or the mains fuse has blown
  • The socket is faulty. To check this, plug another working appliance into the same socket.

Your appliance is performing poorly Check if:

  • The appliance is overloaded
  • The doors are closed properly
  • There is any dust on the condenser
  • There is an adequate distance between the appliance and surrounding walls

Your appliance is operating noisily
The following noises can be heard during normal operation of the appliance.

Cracking (ice cracking) noise occurs:

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

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 fridge.
The fridge doors are opened frequently. Humidity of the room will enter the fridge each time the doors are opened. Humidity increases faster if the doors are opened frequently, especially if the humidity of the room is high.
There is a build-up of water droplets on the rear wall. This is normal after automatic defrosting (in Static Models).

The doors are not opening or closing properly

Check if:

  • There is food or packaging preventing the door from closing
  • The door compartments, shelves and drawers are placed properly
  • The door gaskets are broken or torn
  • Your fridge is level.

The edges of the fridge/freezer in contact with the door joint are warm
Especially during summer (warm weather), the surfaces in contact with the door joint may become warmer during operation of the compressor. This is normal.

⚠ Important:
In the case of a power failure, or if the appliance is unplugged and plugged in again, the gas in the cooling system of your appliance will destabilise, causing the compressor protective thermal element to open.
Your appliance will start to operate normally after 5 minutes.
If the appliance will not be used for a long period of time (such as during holidays), disconnect the plug. Defrost and clean the appliance, leaving the door open to prevent the formation of mildew and odour.
If the problem persists after you have followed all the instructions above, please consult the nearest Authorised

Service Centre.
This appliance is designed for domestic use and for the stated purposes only. It is not suitable for commercial or common use. If the consumer uses the appliance in a way that does not comply with these instructions, we emphasise that the manufacturer and the dealer will not be responsible for any repair or failure within the guarantee period.

Tips for saving energy

  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 appliance compartment. The low temperature of the frozen food will help cool the appliance 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 liquides 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) closed.
  7. The door gasket must be clean and pliable. Replace gaskets if worn.
