Safety Information
Before installing and using the appliance
read this user's instruction book carefully.
It contains safety precautions, hints,
information and ideas. If the freezer is
used in compliance with the instructions
written, it will operate properly and
provide you with the greatest satisfaction.
These warnings are provided in the
interest of safety. You must read them
carefully before installing or using the
appliance.
Use the freezer only for storing frozen
food, freezing fresh food and making
ice cubes.
Do not eat ice cubes or ice lollies
immediately after taking them out of
the freezer, as they may cause frost
burns.
Do not allow children to play or hide
inside the freezer, as they may
become trapped inside and suffocate.
Do not store glass containers with
liquids in the freezer, as they may
burst.
Ensure that the freezer is not resting
on the power supply cable.
Before servicing or cleaning, always
unplug the appliance or disconnect
the power supply.
Do not use other electrical appliances
(such as ice cream makers) inside the
appliance.
Your
appliance
contains
an
environmentally friendly natural gas,
isobuthane (R600a). Caution is
required however, since isobuthane is
flammable. Therefore it is essential to
ensure that the refrigerant pipelines
are not damaged.
It is most important that this instruction
book should be retained with the
appliance for future reference.

Helpful hints and tips
Freezing food
Before freezing, fresh food must be
packed in airtight and moisture-proof
packaging to prevent it from drying
out.
Only use fresh food of the best quality.
Always leave hot food to cool to room
termperature before placing in the
freezer.
Divide food into small portions before
freezing; this ensures that freezing is
more rapid, and that you only need to
defrost the amount needed for
immediate consumption.
Mark the freezer packaging with the
date of freezing.
Place fresh food for freezing close to
the cold sides of the freezer, making
sure that it is not in contact with the
frozen food already in the freezer.
Frozen food can be stored anywhere
inside the freezer, but should be kept
at least 5 mm below the upper edge.
Food storage
For fresh frozen food, please refer to
the storage period table underneath.
For purchased frozen food, never
exceed the expiry date.
When you buy frozen food, make sure
that it has been stored at the correct
temperature. Do not buy products
which have wet or damaged
packaging. Place purchased products
in your freezer as quickly as possible.
We recommend using an insulated
bag to bring such products home with
you.
Important! Remember that fully or
partially defrosted food must not be refrozen. However, dishes which have
been cooked using defrosted food may
be frozen.
In the case of a power failure or
breakdown
Do not open the lid.
Important! If the power has been off for
longer that the value shown in the
chapter "Technical data" under "Holdover time", the defrosted food must be
consumed
quickly
or
cooked
immediately and then refrozen (after
cooling).
