was transported horizontally. Otherwise
the compressor may sustain damage.
This time will allow the oil sufficient
time to return to the compressor.

Electrolux 8181499--02/4
Using the freezer
GB
To start the freezer and thermostat
control
Turn the thermostat control to the desired position.
MIN The lowest position of the thermostat control
results in the highest temperature inside the cabinet.
MAX The highest position of the thermostat control
results in the lowest temperature inside the cabinet.
H : Switched off.
Allow the cabinet to run for a period of 24 hours
whenever the temperature setting is changed. This
will allow the temperature to stabilise inside the
cabinet.
Temperature inside the freezer
To ensure that foodstuff will keep for a long time, be
sure that the temperature inside the freezer is -18°C
or below. Please note, however, that the energy
consumption increases as the temperature decreases.
Switching off
Turn the control anti-clockwise past the click
position to "H".
Unplug the power supply plug from the wall socket
or, alternatively, remove the fuse.
Alarms and other features
Temperature alarm
The red warning light illuminates when the
temperature inside the cabinet rises above -12°C.
The light goes out again when the temperature falls
below -13°C.
Freezing
You need not press the fast-freezing button when
freezing smaller quantities of food during any
24-hour period.
In all other cases, press the fast-freezing button
approx. 24 hours prior to placing the food in the
freezer.
Press the fast-freezing button to switch off
fast-freezing again about 24 hours after placing the
food in the freezer.

Electrolux 8181499--02/4
Practical advice on freezing
· When freezing products, use the top shelf, and if
necessary the shelf beneath as this is the coldest
part.
· Place the foods directly on the freezer shelves.
· Spread out the products as much as possible to
allow air to circulate between them.
· Do not place food products which are to be
frozen directly against other frozen food.
The heat from the unfrozen food may cause
the frozen food to thaw on the surface.
· Once frozen, re-arrange the products and put
them as close as possible to each other.
The food will then stay cold longer in the
event of a power failure.
· Do not freeze too much food at the same time.
The freezing capacity of the unit is indicated in
the specifications section.
Check that the cabinet is operating and
keeps the set temperature one day after
switching it on for the first time. Only
after then should the freezer be used to
freeze fresh foodstuff.
Suitable storage periods
Food purchased in frozen condition: Follow the
advice on the maximum storage period indicated on
the packaging.
Fresh food frozen at home:
Fatty and salty food should not be kept frozen for
more than three months. Cooked food and low-fat
food may be kept up to about six months. Lean food
and berries can be kept for approximately one year.
Thawing
It is best to use a fridge to thaw food. Place the
foodstuff on a plate with a raised edge to prevent
liquids from running out. To quickly thaw food, put
it in room temperature or in cold water. When using
a microwave oven to thaw foodstuffs, follow the
manufacturer's instructions.
Cabinet interior
Freezer drawers
The freezer drawers make it easy to quickly and
easily find the food package you want. To gain
space, the drawers can be removed and the products
can be put directly on the shelves. On all shelves,
except the top shelf, it is possible to place products
that protrude 20 mm from the front edge. This
allows maximum use of the available space.
Do not remove the bottom drawer. It is required to
assure proper air circulation.
5
Electrolux 8181499--02/4
Ice cubes
Fill the ice tray to max. 3/4 since water expands as it
freezes. Release the ice cubes by twisting the ice
tray.
If ice cubes are kept for a long time, they will dry
out and the taste is affected. Thus, throw away old
ice cubes and prepare new ones when needed.

placed. See the section "Installation". When
installed correctly, the cabinet will consume less
energy.
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods, or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet, and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the
door from closing properly.
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will ensure
safer defrosting of foods and reduce the work of
the refrigeration unit
It is advisable to periodically clean the
refrigeration system at the back of the appliance
with a duster or vacuum cleaner.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages
before placing them in the freezer.
Carefully follow the advice on freezing products
in the section "Use". This will prevent wasting
energy.
Do not set the temperature too low in the freezer.
A suitable temperature is in the range of -18°C
to -20°C .
Defrost the freezer when the frost layer reaches a
thickness of 3-5 mm. Regularly check the door
seal to ensure that it is clean and free from debris.
Make sure the door gasket is complete and
always clean.
·
·
neither hot foods nor liquids which may
evaporate, should be placed in the larder
compartment.
Avoid buying frozen food if you can not store it
straight away. The use of an insulated container is
advisable. When you arrive home place the
frozen food in the freezer immediately.
Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated and
labelled and used in date order to ensure that food
is consumed at its best.
Remove suspect food from you refrigerator and
clean, refer to cleaning and maintenance.

Maintenance and Cleaning
GB
Removing the ventilation grille
The ventilation grille can be removed, e.g. to wash
the grille.
Make sure the door is open when removing the
ventilation grille. Unsnap the upper edge of the grille
by pulling outward/downward. Then pull the grille
straight out to completely remove it.
Internal Cleaning
Clean the inside and the accessories with warm
water and bicarbonate of soda (5 ml to 0,5 litre of
water).
Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Do not use detergents, abrasive
powders, high perfumed cleaning
products, wax polishes or cleaning
products containing bleach or alcohol .
Regulary check the door seals and wipe clean to
ensure they are clean and free from debris.
Disconnect the appliance from electricity supply.
Internal Cleaning
Clean the inside and accossories with warm water
and bicarbonate of soda (5ml to 0,5 litre water)
Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to
ensure they are clean and free from debris.
External Cleaning
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water.
Remove the ventilation grille (see the section
"Removing the ventilation grille") and vacuum-clean
under the cabinet. Once or twice a year dust the
condenser (black grille) and the compressor at the
back of the appliance, with a brush or vacuum
cleaner, as an accumulation of dust will affect the
performance of the appliance and cause excessive
electricity consumption.
When moving the cabinet, lift it by
the front edge to avoid scratching
the floor.
To Change the Light Bulb
The light is switched on automatically when the
door is opened. Before replacing the light bulb,
disconnect the power plug from the outlet.
Press the spring together and pull the grille
downward at the same time.
Use a bulb of the same type, E14 socket, maximum
rating of 25 W.

Electrolux 8181499--02/4
Defrosting the freezer
A certain amount of frost will always form on the
freezer shelves and around the top compartment.
Defrost the freezer when the frost layer reaches a
thickness of about 3-5 mm.
Remove the freezer drawers and place them on top
of each other by turning every other drawer one half
turn. Put insulating material around the drawers, e.g.
blankets or newspapers.
The frozen products can also be packed closely
together and be kept in a cold location, e.g. in the
fridge.
Defrosting can be accelerated by placing bowls with
hot water (not boiling) inside the freezer.
Take out the drain spout and place it in the bottom
freezer drawer where water can collect.
Loosen the ventilation grille to enable the bowl to fit
under the drain spout.
Carefully scrape off the ice when it starts to thaw.
Use a wood or plastic scraper. Do not use sharp
objects as these may damage the interior.
When all the ice has melted, clean and wipe the
cabinet dry, then push the drain spout back in place.
Switch on the cabinet and replace the frozen
foodstuff.
Never use a hair dryer or other heating
appliances to speed up defrosting. Excessive
heat may damage the plastic interior, and
humidity could enter the electric appliance
making it live.
When the appliance is not in use
Disconnect the appliance from electricity supply.
Empty all foods and clean the appliance, leaving the
doors ajar to prevent unpleasant smells.
If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to
check it once in a while to prevent the food inside
from spoiling in case of a power failure.
Something Not Working
GB

Problem
Possible cause / Remedy
Audible alarm + flashing red warning
lamp. (It is too warm inside the freezer.)
Switch off the audible alarm by pressing the alarm shut-off
button.
The audible alarm could have been triggered by:
The cabinet having been recently switched on and the
temperature still being too high. See the chapter "Switching on
and setting the temperature".
It is too warm inside the freezer.
Set a lower temperature.
Make sure that the door is completely closed and that the
insulating strip is complete and clean.
If warm food products have been put inside the freezer, wait for
a couple of hours and then check the temperature again.
Distribute the food products to allow cold air to circulate
around them.
Set a warmer temperature.
Fast Freeze could have been switched on.
It is too cold inside the freezer.
8
Electrolux 8181499--02/4
Too much frost and ice are produced.
Make sure that the door is completely closed and that the
insulating strip is complete and clean.
Set a warmer temperature.
The compressor operates continuously.
Set a warmer temperature.
Make sure that the door is completely closed and that the
insulating strip is complete and clean.
The temperature where the cabinet is placed is above normal
room temperature.
The cabinet does not operate at all.
Cooling or interior light does not
operate. No indicator lamps light.
The power plug is not properly connected.
The fuse has blown.
The cabinet is not switched on.
Power does not reach the cabinet. (Try connecting another
electrical device to the power outlet.)
Sound level in cabinet is too high.
The refrigerating system will always produce some sounds. A
pulsing sound is heard when coolant is pumped inside the
cooling pipes. A ticking sound from the thermostat can be
heard when the compressor switches on and off. The sound
level varies depending on the operation of the cabinet.
If the cushion spacers (between the cabinet wall and pipes)
come loose, put them back in place again.
Carefully follow the instructions in the chapter "Installing the
cabinet".
Power failure
Do not unnecessarily open the cabinet, except when the power
cut seems to be long, in which case the food products should be
moved to another cabinet that works. If the frozen products are
still hard following the power cut, they may be immediately
refrozen. If the food products have thawed but are still fresh,
they may be used, however they should be prepared before
re-freezing or eating them.
