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

is valid depends on the quality of the
foods and pre-treating before freezing.
Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to
being used, can be thawed in the
refrigerator or at room temperature,
depending on the time available for
this operation.
Small pieces may even be cooked still
frozen, directly from the freezer: in this
case, cooking will take longer.

Ice-cube production
This appliance is equipped with one or
more trays for the production of icecubes. Fill these trays with water, then
put them in the freezer compartment.
Do not use metallic instruments to
remove the trays from the freezer.
Cold accumulators
2 cold accumulators are supplied in
the freezer; these increase the length
of time for which food will keep in the
event of a power failure or breakdown.
They must be placed in the top
Hints for freezing
To help you make the most of the
freezing process, here are some
important hints:
• the maximum quantity of food
which can be frozen in 24 hrs. is
shown on the rating plate;
• the freezing process takes 24
hours. No further food to be frozen
should be added during this period;
• prepare food in small portions to
enable it to be rapidly and
completely frozen and to make it
possible subsequently to thaw only
the quantity required;
• wrap up the food in aluminium foil
or polythene and make sure that
the packages are airtight;
• do not allow fresh, unfrozen food
to touch food which is already
frozen, thus avoiding a rise in
temperature of the latter;
• water ices, if consumed
immediately after removal from the
freezer compartment, can possibly
cause the skin to be freeze burnt;
• it is advisable to show the freezingin date on each individual pack to
enable you to keep tab of the
storage time;
• do not put carbonated liquids (fizzy
drinks, etc.) in the freezer
compartment as they may burst.
Hints for storage
of frozen food
To obtain the best performance from
this appliance, you should:
• make sure that the commercially
frozen foodstuffs were adequately
stored by the retailer;
• be sure that frozen foodstuffs are
transferred from the foodstore to
the freezer in the shortest possible
• not open the door frequently or
leave it open longer than absolutely
• Once defrosted, food deteriorates
rapidly and cannot be refrozen.
• Do not exceed the storage period
indicated by the food
