-18° C or colder. Therefore, we suggest you turn the
knob to a medium setting.
The temperature inside the freezer is automatically
adjusted to ensure safe storage of the food.
However, the exact setting should be chosen
keeping in mind that the temperature inside the
appliance depends on:
• room temperature;
• how often the door is opened;
• the quantity of food stored;
• location of appliance.
Turn knob ➁ towards “max” to obtain lower
temperatures and, conversely, towards “min” if a less
cold temperature is required.

the level required for correct storage.
Storage of commercially frozen
When you first start the freezer or if the freezer has
been out of use for some time, we advise you to run
your appliance for at least two hours in the «fast
freeze» mode before storing frozen food.
If there is a power failure when food is in the
freezer, do not open the door of the freezer.
The frozen food will not be affected if the
power cut is of short duration (up to 18
hours) and the freezer is full, otherwise, it is
recommended that the food should be used
within a short time (a temperature increase
of the frozen food shortens its safe storage
Acoustic alarm
This appliance also incorporates an alarm which
gives off a sound signal whenever the warning light
comes on. This signal can be temporarily stopped by
depressing the push button for fast freezing ➃.
The fast freezing push button can be released as
soon as the warning light is off.
The appliance also incorporates an alarm which gives
off a sound signal when the door remains open for
more than 60 seconds. To stop this sound signal close
the door.
Before being used, deep-frozen and frozen food can
be thawed out either in the refrigerator or at room
temperature, depending on the time available for this
Small pieces of food, such as hamburgers, cutlets
chips, and ½sh ½ngers, for example, can be cooked
straight out of the freezer, without any intermediate
thawing operation.
Clearly, cooking time will be marginally longer than in
the case of thawed food.
Freezing Calendar
The symbols on the drawers show different types of
frozen goods.
The numbers indicate storage times in months for the
appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether the upper
or lower value of the indicated storage time is valid
depends on the quality of the foods and pre-treating
before freezing.
Ice-cube production
Freezing of fresh foods
This appliance is equipped with trays for the
production of ice-cubes.
Fill these trays with water to 3/4 of their height, then
put them in the freezer compartment. The ice-cubes
may be shaken out from the trays by simply twisting;
do not use metallic instruments to remove the trays
from the freezer.
To quick-freeze foods when the appliance has not
been in use, switch on the freezer and let it run on the
quick-freeze setting for at least three hours before
putting the food to be frozen in the compartment.
If instead the appliance is already in operation, it
should run on the quick-freeze setting for at least 24
hours before the foods are put in the freezer. Once
the foods have been placed in the freezer, the
freezing operation can be considered to be complete
Cold accumulators
The appliance is equipped with two cold
accumulators. If there is a power outage, they will
extend food conservation for a few hours.

Tips for freezing fresh foods
Tips for storage of commercially
frozen food
To help you get the best out of the freezing process,
here are a few hints:
■ Freeze only good-quality, fresh and well-cleaned
foods. Split them into small portions to speed up
freezing and avoid having to thaw more food than
you require. It is in fact important to remember that
once the foods have thawed out, they deteriorate
■ Another point to remember is that lean foods keep
better and longer than fatty foods. Salt too reduces
storage times.
■ Wrap the foods in foil or polythene ½lm, ensuring
that the wrapping adheres closely to the food and
is well sealed. In this way, by avoiding contact with
air, the colour ¾avour and nutritional value of the
foods remain intact.
■ During the freezing process, do not add further
foods for freezing and do not open the freezer
■ The foods for freezing should not be placed in
contact with already frozen foods, but put in the
special freezing compartment. This will stop the
temperature of already frozen foods from rising.
■ Never put ½zzy drinks in the freezer as they might
well burst.
■ In addition, never put hot foods or liquids in the
freezer compartment and take care not to ½ll
recipients up to the brim if they are covered with a
■ It is a good idea to mark the packs with the date
on which freezing started so that you can keep a
check on storage periods.
To get the best out of your freezer, in the case of
storage of commercially frozen food you should
ensure that:
■ the products have been correctly stored by the
■ that there is only a very short time between when
you purchase the products and when you put them
in the freezer;
■ you do not store products for longer than the time
speci½ed by the food manufacturer;
■ In addition, if the freezer has been out of use for
some time, before putting the products in the
compartment let the freezer run for at least two
hours on the quick-freeze (SUPER) setting. After
this, reset the freezer for normal storage use;
■ Avoid opening the door too frequently and when
you do open it, leave it open only for as long as is
strictly necessary;
■ A word of warning about ice lollies: they should not
be eaten straight out of the freezer as this might
cause cold burns.
