The freezer compartment
Thawing
The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for
storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing
fresh foods.
Frozen or frozen food can be thawed in the fridge or
at room temperature depending on the time
available. Small food items may even be cooked from
frozen; in this case cooking will take longer.
When freezing fresh foods set the slider control to
the “min” position and turn the thermostat control to
a higher setting.
In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 6 kg.
Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer of the
freezer as this is the coldest part.

UNUSABLE TO PREVENT YOUNG CHILDREN
BEING TRAPPED INSIDE.
Positioning
This appliance should only be installed at a location
where the ambient temperature corresponds to the
climate classification indicated on the rating plate,
which is located at the left on the inside of the
appliance.
Normal Operating Sounds
Depending upon the position which you choose for
your appliance, you may wish to reverse the way in
which the door opens. To do this, refer to instructions
on “Door reversal directions” paragraph.
The advanced design of today’s frost free appliances means you hear unfamilar noises during everyday
operation. The diagram below describes some of the noises you may hear. These are quite normal and your
appliance is operating correctly
Important
It must be possible to disconnect the appliance from
the mains power supply; the plug must therefore be
easily accessible after installation.
The thermostat control will
click when starting or
stopping the compressor.
The fan circulates cold air to
cool the refrigerator and the
freezer compartment and
sounds like air blowing or a
whirring sound.

Defrost water drips into the
drain pan during the defrost
cycle.
You should also ensure that air can circulate freely
around the back and the top of the cabinet. There
must also be at least 100 mm (4”) distance between
the top of the cabinet and any overhanging kitchen
furniture (A). Ideally, the appliance should not be
positioned beneath overhanging furniture (B).
Water dropping on the defrost
heater causes a hissing or
popping sound during the
defrost cycle.
The automatic defrost timer
sounds like an electric clock
and clicks in and out of the
defrost cycle.
There should also be a gap of 25 mm either side of
the appliance. Do not obstruct the space
underneath.

HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES
Because of consumer demand, preservatives have been removed from many pre-prepared foods. This
together with the changes in shopping habits to a once-a-week shop, mean that safe handling and
storage of food is even more important than ever.
The following tips should help you to ensure that the food in your home is in as perfect condition as
possible.
•
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your fridge as short as possible. Tests
showed that the temperature of 1 litre of orange
juice rose to 22°C in an hour between the
supermarket and home. It then took 11 hours to
get down to 7°C in the refrigerator.
•
•
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as
possible.
•
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
•
Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do
NOT place in the refrigerator until cool. (Leave
food in a place as cool as possible in order that it
can then be placed in the refrigerator as soon as
possible).
•
Do NOT mix raw and cooked meat, they must be
in separate containers. Take care not to let the
meat juices drip onto other food. If the meat does
drip, remove everything and clean thoroughly.
•
Do not store food uncovered.
•
The best way to defrost food is to put it in the
refrigerator to thaw slowly.
•
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean (refer to “Maintenance and Cleaning).
•
Never allow spillages to dry and harden.
•
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.
•
It is important that food is used before its “best
before” date.
•
Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the
refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped
eggs.
•
Regularly check the refrigerator door seal to
ensure that it is clean and free from debris.
•
Always wash your hands with soapy water and
dry them with a clean towel before handling food.
•
Keep work surfaces clean and avoid cross
contamination by not using the same work
surface or knife, without washing them thoroughly
in between.
•
The fresh foods to be frozen must be fresh and of
the best quality.
•
The size of each pack should be small enough to
ensure that it is used in one go . Small packs
freeze more quickly and uniformly and give better
results.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
DIMENSIONS
Frozen food, once thawed, must not be refrozen.
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food,
salt reduces the storage time.
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal .
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of
refrozen water droplets on the pack could indicate
that the product has not been kept at a suitable
temperature and that it may have lost its original
quality. Partially thawed food must not be
refrozen, it must be consumed within 24 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated.
Never place hot food, bottles or cans of fizzy drink
in the freezer as they may explode. Containers
with a lid must not be filled to the brim.
Do not open the door or place extra fresh food in
the freezer next to food which is already frozen as
this could cause the temperature of the frozen
food to rise and its quality and storage life to
reduce .

HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES
Because of consumer demand, preservatives have been removed from many pre-prepared foods. This
together with the changes in shopping habits to a once-a-week shop, mean that safe handling and
storage of food is even more important than ever.
The following tips should help you to ensure that the food in your home is in as perfect condition as
possible.
•
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your fridge as short as possible. Tests
showed that the temperature of 1 litre of orange
juice rose to 22°C in an hour between the
supermarket and home. It then took 11 hours to
get down to 7°C in the refrigerator.
•
•
Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as
possible.
•
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
•
Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do
NOT place in the refrigerator until cool. (Leave
food in a place as cool as possible in order that it
can then be placed in the refrigerator as soon as
possible).
•
Do NOT mix raw and cooked meat, they must be
in separate containers. Take care not to let the
meat juices drip onto other food. If the meat does
drip, remove everything and clean thoroughly.
•
Do not store food uncovered.
•
The best way to defrost food is to put it in the
refrigerator to thaw slowly.
•
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean (refer to “Maintenance and Cleaning).
•
Never allow spillages to dry and harden.
•
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.
•
It is important that food is used before its “best
before” date.
•
Store eggs in the egg rack provided in the
refrigerator door. Discard any broken or chipped
eggs.
•
Regularly check the refrigerator door seal to
ensure that it is clean and free from debris.
•
Always wash your hands with soapy water and
dry them with a clean towel before handling food.
•
Keep work surfaces clean and avoid cross
contamination by not using the same work
surface or knife, without washing them thoroughly
in between.
•
The fresh foods to be frozen must be fresh and of
the best quality.
•
The size of each pack should be small enough to
ensure that it is used in one go . Small packs
freeze more quickly and uniformly and give better
results.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
DIMENSIONS
Frozen food, once thawed, must not be refrozen.
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food,
salt reduces the storage time.
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal .
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of
refrozen water droplets on the pack could indicate
that the product has not been kept at a suitable
temperature and that it may have lost its original
quality. Partially thawed food must not be
refrozen, it must be consumed within 24 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated.
Never place hot food, bottles or cans of fizzy drink
in the freezer as they may explode. Containers
with a lid must not be filled to the brim.
Do not open the door or place extra fresh food in
the freezer next to food which is already frozen as
this could cause the temperature of the frozen
food to rise and its quality and storage life to
reduce .

INSTALLATION
Warning
IF YOU ARE DISCARDING AN OLD APPLIANCE
THAT HAS A LOCK OR CATCH ON THE DOOR,
YOU MUST ENSURE THAT IT IS MADE
UNUSABLE TO PREVENT YOUNG CHILDREN
BEING TRAPPED INSIDE.
Positioning
This appliance should only be installed at a location
where the ambient temperature corresponds to the
climate classification indicated on the rating plate,
which is located at the left on the inside of the
appliance.
Normal Operating Sounds
Depending upon the position which you choose for
your appliance, you may wish to reverse the way in
which the door opens. To do this, refer to instructions
on “Door reversal directions” paragraph.
The advanced design of today’s frost free appliances means you hear unfamilar noises during everyday
operation. The diagram below describes some of the noises you may hear. These are quite normal and your
appliance is operating correctly
Important
It must be possible to disconnect the appliance from
the mains power supply; the plug must therefore be
easily accessible after installation.
The thermostat control will
click when starting or
stopping the compressor.
The fan circulates cold air to
cool the refrigerator and the
freezer compartment and
sounds like air blowing or a
whirring sound.

The flow of refrigerant
through the freezer cooling
coil makes a gurgling noise.
Defrost water drips into the
drain pan during the defrost
cycle.
You should also ensure that air can circulate freely
around the back and the top of the cabinet. There
must also be at least 100 mm (4”) distance between
the top of the cabinet and any overhanging kitchen
furniture (A). Ideally, the appliance should not be
positioned beneath overhanging furniture (B).
Water dropping on the defrost
heater causes a hissing or
popping sound during the
defrost cycle.
The automatic defrost timer
sounds like an electric clock
and clicks in and out of the
defrost cycle.
There should also be a gap of 25 mm either side of
the appliance. Do not obstruct the space
underneath.

The freezer compartment
Thawing
The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for
storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing
fresh foods.
Frozen or frozen food can be thawed in the fridge or
at room temperature depending on the time
available. Small food items may even be cooked from
frozen; in this case cooking will take longer.
When freezing fresh foods set the slider control to
the “min” position and turn the thermostat control to
a higher setting.
In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 6 kg.
Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer of the
freezer as this is the coldest part.
After 24 hours reposition the slider control and
thermostat control to previous setting.
Important
To ensure correct operation of the appliance do not
use the appliance with the basket or drawers
removed.
Frozen food storage
Frozen food can be stored in any basket or drawer of
the freezer compartment, including the fast freeze
compartment.
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the
manufacturer.
Do not open the door frequently or leave it open
longer than is absolutely necessary.
Warning
Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks etc.), in
the freezer compartment.
Ices lollies, if consumed immediately after removal
from the freezer, can cause low temperature skin
burns.
Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands
are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or
“frost/freezer burns”.
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with one or more trays for
ice-cubes trays.
Fill the tray(s) 3/4 full to give the ice space to expand
and place them in the freezer compartment.
To release the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight
twist.
Do not use sharp or metallic instruments to remove
the trays from the freezer.
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
frozen food: follow the oven instructions, particularly
regarding the placement of aluminium wrapping or
containers in the oven.
Any electrical work required to install this appliance
should be carried out by a qualified electrician or
competent person.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
EARTHED.
The manufacturer declines any liability should
this safety measure not be observed.
