Use of the freezer compartment
The freezer is provided with the symbol
which means that it is
suitable for freezing fresh food and for
long term storage of frozen and
deep-frozen food.
The temperature may be regulated
between -15°C and -24°C.
We suggest setting the internal temperature of approximately -18°C,
which guarantees proper freezing and
conservation of the frozen foods.
During the stability period by the first
starting the temperature displayed can
not correspond to the setting temperature. During this time it is possible
that the temperature displayed is
different than the setting temperature.
Difference between the temperature
displayed and temperature setting is
normal. Especially when:
- a new setting has recently been
- the door has been left open for a
long time
- warm food has been placed in the

compartment are quite normal.
During normal functioning the indicator
shows the warmest temperature inside
the compartment.
Storage of frozen food
When first starting-up or after a period
out of use, before putting the products
in the compartment let the appliance
run at least 12 hours. To obtain the
best performance from this appliance,
you should: if large quantities of food
are to be stored, remove all drawers
and baskets from appliance and place
food on cooling shelves.
Pay careful attention not to exceed the
load limit stated on the side of the

Cabinet interior
Freezer drawers
The freezer drawers ensure that it is
quick and easy to find the food
package you want. In order to obtain
maximum space, all fittings except the
top door and the lower box can be
removed and filled with groceries up to
the indicated loading limit.
Removable shelves
There are the removable shelves inside
the freezer. Remove the shelf when
large food products need to be frozen.
Shelf for ice machine.
Cannot be removed.
Ice container.
Can be removed. Lift the front edge
and then pull out. When the ice
container is pulled out, this stops all
the functions of the ice machine.
When re-fitting (if necessary), the ice
container feed screw should be
positioned against the rear flange.
Saving energy
· Pay careful attention to where the
cabinet is 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
often switch on unnecessarily.
· Ensure there are no obstructions
preventing the door from closing
· 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
· Food which is to be frozen (when
cool) should be placed in the fridge
before being transfered to the freezer.
· 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 "Using the
freezer". This will prevent wasting
· Do not set the temperature too low in
the freezer. A suitable temperature is in
the range of -18°C to -20°C .
· Make sure the door gasket is
complete and always clean.
Food Storage
· To obtain the best results from your
appliance, 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.
Protect the environment
· Hand over the cabinet packaging
and discarded fridges and freezers to a
recycling station. Contact your local
council or Environmental Health office
for more information.
· Keep foodstuff in re-usable
containers. Cut down on disposable
material as much as possible.
· When cleaning the cabinet, use a
mild washing-up detergent.
· Follow the advice in the section
"Saving energy"
· The door gasket and coolant used in
this cabinet will not harm the ozone
· All parts in the packaging can be
· The cabinet has been designed for
easy dismantling and subsequent
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.
Clean the cabinet at regular intervals.
Internal Cleaning
Disconnect the appliance from
electricity supply.
Clean the inside and accessories with
warm water and bicarbonate of soda
(5ml to 0,5 litre water) Rinse and dry
Regularly check the door seals and
wipe clean to ensure they are clean
and free from debris.
External Cleaning
Use water/neutral soap emulsion for
cleaning the surface of stainless steel,
anti-finger-print coated. Do NOT use
abrasive paste.
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.
Servicing and cleaning the ice
When necessary, clean the surfaces of
the dispenser and the ice container
that are accessible from the outside,
using only a soft cloth and warm water.
Never use cleaning agents with a
grinding or aggressive effect.
When necessary, the feeder and the
ice container can be cleaned after
removal of the surfaces accessible
from the outside, using only a soft
cloth and warm water.
Ensure that the ice container is
thoroughly dry before being re-fitted.
If the system is not to be used for a
long period, it is advisable to switch off
the ice machine and water supply,
empty the ice container and fit the
cover supplied over the delivery hole
for ice in the door. When re-starting,
avoid using the ice produced during
the first day.
To change the lamp
The light is switched on automatically
when the door is opened. Before
replacing the light bulb, disconnect the
power plug from the outlet.
Disassemble the lamp by using a
screwdriver in the recess on the lamp
Assemble a new lamp by guiding it
into a centred position and press until
it snaps.
Use a halogen bulb of the same type,
maximum rating of 20 W.
Defrosting is not necessary.
Every 24 hours, the evaporator is
defrosted automatically.
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.

A ticking sound from the thermostat can be
heard when the compressor switches on and

operation of the cabinet.
If you feel the sound level is incorrect:
Make sure the pipes at the back of the

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.
