ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
Before you insert the plug into the wall socket make sure that the voltage and the
frequency shown in the rating plate inside the appliance corresponds to your
electricity supply. Rating label is on the left hand side of the freezer liner.
We recommend that this appliance is connected to the mains supply via a
suitable switched and fused socket. The socket must be in an accessible position.
Should the mains lead of the appliance become damaged or should it need
replacing at any time, it must be replaced by a special purpose made mains lead
which can only be obtained from a BEKO Authorised Service Agent.
WARNING! THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
If the fitted moulded plug is not suitable for your socket, then the plug should be
cut off and an appropriate plug fitted. Destroy the old plug which is cut off as a
plug with bared cord could cause a shock hazard if inserted into a socket
elsewhere in the house.
The moulded plug on this appliance incorporates a 13 A fuse. Should the fuse
need to be replaced an ASTABEAB approved BS 1362 fuse of the same rating must
be used. Do not forget to refit the fuse cover. In the event of losing the fuse cover
the plug must not be used until a replacement fuse cover has been fitted. Colour
of the replacement fuse cover must be the same colour as that visible on the pin
face of the plug. Fuse covers can be obtained from a BEKO authorised service

IMPORTANT
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. The space in the room where the appliance is installed must not be smaller
than 10 cubic metres.
2. If possible avoid placing the appliance near cookers, radiators or in direct
sunlight as this will cause the compressor to run for long periods. If installed
next to a source of heat or refrigerator, maintain the following minimum side
clearances:
From Cookers
2" (50 mm)
From Radiators
12" (300 mm)
From Refrigerators or Larder Fridge
1" (25 mm)
3. Make sure that sufficient room is provided around the appliance to ensure free
air circulation. Allow a minimum of 60 mm (2.4 inches) between the top of the
fridge and the ceiling or the underside of a wall cupboard.
4. Fit the two plastic wall spacers supplied with the appliance rotating 1/4 turn
to the condenser at the back of the appliance (See diagram).
Electronic card
5. The appliance should be located on a smooth surface. (covered by plastic cover)
The two front feet can be adjusted as required.
To ensure that,your appliance is standing
upright adjust the two front feet by turning
clockwise or anti-clockwise, until the product
is in firm contact with the floor. Correct
adjustment of feet avoids excessive
vibration and noise.
6. Refer to "Cleaning and Care" section to
prepare your appliance for use.
7. A special receptacle is supplied to store the
mains plug during transit.
The receptacle is fixed at the back of the
cabinet, on the right hand side of the
compressor. (See diagram) Gently remove
the plug from the receptacle. Never pull
the mains cord, you may damage the
appliance. In the case of transportation,
ensure you locate the plug in the receptacle
provided to avoid transit damage.

STARTING
Final Check
Before you start using the freezer check that:
1.
2.
3.
4.
The front feet have been adjusted so the appliance is level.
The interior is dry and air can circulate freely at the rear.
Clean the interior as recommended under "CLEANING AND CARE."
Insert the plug into the wall socket and switch on the electricity supply. Avoid
accidental disconnection by taping over the switch, the compressor will start
running in about five minutes.
5. You will hear a noise as the compressor starts up. The liquid and gases sealed
within the refrigeration system may also give rise to noise, whether the
compressor is running or not which is quite normal.
6. If you are going to store frozen food make sure the temperature reaches -18°C
or below. (See Storing Frozen Food page 8)
7. If you are going to freeze fresh food, turn the thermostat knob to fast freeze
position you must wait at least three hours before putting in your fresh food to
be frozen. (See Freezing Fresh Food, Page: 9).
8. Front edges of the cabinet may feel warm. This is normal. These areas are
designed to be warm to avoid condensation.
9. We recommend that you set the thermostat knob at MIN setting and monitor
the temperature to ensure the appliance maintains desired storage temperatures
(See Temperature Control and Adjustment section).
Important Notes :
1. If there is a power failure do not open the door. Frozen food should not be
affected if the failure lasts for less than 15 hours. If the failure is longer, then
the food should be checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then
re-frozen.
2. If you find the freezer door difficult to open just after you have closed it, don't
worry. This is due to the pressure difference which will equalise and allow the
door to open normally after a few moments.
3. You will hear a vacuum sound just after closing the door. This is quite normal.
4. When you switch on, the appliance will not start immediately, because the
appliance incorporates a protection device in the electronics - wait for about
5 minutes.
5. If you try to reopen the door after closing you will notice that it can require a
lot more force than usual, please see page 5 for more information.
6
TEMPERATURE CONTROL AND ADJUSTMENT
Operating temperatures are controlled by the thermostat knob (see diagram) located
on the inner side wall of the freezer compartment. Settings may be made from 1,
2 ... fast freeze, fast freeze being the coldest position.
When the appliance is switched on for the first time, the thermostat knob should be
adjusted so that after 24 hours, the average freezer temperature is no higher than
-18°C (0°F). We recommend you set the knob half way between the 1 and 4 setting.
Lower temperatures may be obtained by adjusting setting knob towards fast freeze
position.
We recommend that you check the temperature with an accurate thermometer to
ensure that the storage compartments are kept to the desired temperature.
Remember you must take your reading very quickly since the thermometer
temperature will rise very rapidly after you remove it from the freezer.
Please remember each time the door is opened cold air escapes and the internal
temperature rises. Therefore never leave the door open and ensure it is closed
immediately after food is put in or removed.
STORING FROZEN FOOD
Prepacked commercially frozen food should be stored in accordance with the
frozen food manufacturer's instructions for a
frozen food storage
compartment.
To ensure that the high quality achieved by the frozen food manufacturer and the
food retailer is maintained the following should be remembered:
1. Put packets in the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase.
2. Do not exceed "Use By", "Best Before" dates on the packaging.
7
FREEZING FRESH FOOD
Please observe the following instructions to obtain the best results.
Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time. The quality of the food is best
preserved when it is frozen right through to the core as quickly as possible.
Do not exceed the freezing capacity of your appliance in 24 h which is 10 kg (22 lb)
Placing warm food into the freezer compartment causes the refrigeration compressor to
operate continuously until the food is frozen solid.
If you are going to freeze fresh food in excess of 2kg. (4.5 lb) turn the thermostat knob
to the fast freeze position and wait for about 24 hours before placing the fresh food in the
freezer.
Remember to turn the thermostat knob back to its previous position once food has frozen.
It is recommended to place fresh food to be frozen in one of the fast freeze compartments.
Take special care not to mix already frozen food and fresh food.
Compartments other than the
fast freeze compartment shown
with (1) should only be used for
storage of frozen food shown
with (5, 6). Ice bank (3) has been
specially designed to make and
store ice cubes (See Making Ice
Cubes).

CLEANING AND CARE
** We recommend that you switch off the freezer at the socket outlet and pull out
the mains plug before cleaning.
** Never use any sharp abrasive instrument, soap, household cleaner, detergent
and wax polish for cleaning.
** Use luke warm water to clean the cabinet of the freezer and wipe it dry.
** Use a damp cloth wrung out in a solution of one teaspoon of bicarbonate of
soda to one pint of water to clean the interior and wipe it dry.
** If the freezer is not going to be used for a long period of time switch it off,
remove all food, clean it and leave the door ajar.
** To remove a drawer, pull it as far as possible, and then tilt it upwards, and
then pull it out completely.
** Any dust that gathers on the condenser, which is located at the back of the
freezer, should be removed once a year with a vacuum cleaner.
** Check door seals regularly to ensure they are clean and free from food
particles.
