Attention
The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for
storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing
fresh foods.
Freezing fresh food
After completion of the door reversing operation,
check that the door gasket adheres to the cabinet. If
the ambient temperature is cold (i.e. in Winter), the
gasket may not fit perfectly to the cabinet. In that
case, wait for the natural fitting of the gasket or
accelerate this process by heating up the part
involved with a normal hairdryer.
To freeze fresh foods it is necessary to change the
setting of the thermostat knob.
However, for a quicker freezing operation, turn the
thermostat knob to the coldest setting; but remember
that, in this condition the refrigerator compartment
temperature might drop below 0° C.
If this occurs reset thermostat knob to a warmer
setting.
In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 3 kg. of fresh
food.

Thawing
Fresh food refrigeration
Frozen food, prior to being used, 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.
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
flavour.
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and
then refrozen.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
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.
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & wild poultry): wrap
in polythene bags and place on top of the salad
drawer.
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
any type of frozen food: follow the oven instructions,
particularly regarding the placement of aluminium
wrapping or containers in the oven.
Defrosted cooked food must never be
refrozen.
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 help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad drawers.
Electrical connections
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.
The plug must not be used if the fuse cover/carrier is

HINTS AND TIPS
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
Energy Saving Advice
Normal Operating Sounds
•
•
•
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils
or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator.
•
Do not install the appliance close to sources of
heat, such as a boiler or radiator.
•
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
appliance are not obstructed.
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is
being pumped round, and you will hear a whirring
sound or pulsating noise from the compressor.
•
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you
will hear a faint ’click’ when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
•
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge.
•
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should be
placed in the fridge before being transferred to
the freezer.
•
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will ensure
safer defrosting of foods and reduce the work of
the refrigeration unit.
•
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 switch on unnecessarily often.
Food Storage
To obtain the best performance from your fridgefreezer
•
Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.
•
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it
straight away. The use of an insulated container is
advisable. When you arrive home place the frozen
food in the freezer immediately.
•
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your refrigerator as short as possible.
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
•
Do not store food uncovered.
•
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 your refrigerator and
clean, refer to Maintenance and Cleaning.
•
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 by the
manufacturer.

•
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages
before placing them in the freezer.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the
door from closing properly.

HINTS AND TIPS
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
Energy Saving Advice
Normal Operating Sounds
•
•
•
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils
or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator.
•
Do not install the appliance close to sources of
heat, such as a boiler or radiator.
•
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
appliance are not obstructed.
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is
being pumped round, and you will hear a whirring
sound or pulsating noise from the compressor.
•
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you
will hear a faint ’click’ when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
•
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge.
•
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should be
placed in the fridge before being transferred to
the freezer.
•
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will ensure
safer defrosting of foods and reduce the work of
the refrigeration unit.
•
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 switch on unnecessarily often.
Food Storage
To obtain the best performance from your fridgefreezer
•
Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.
•
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it
straight away. The use of an insulated container is
advisable. When you arrive home place the frozen
food in the freezer immediately.
•
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your refrigerator as short as possible.
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
•
Do not store food uncovered.
•
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 your refrigerator and
clean, refer to Maintenance and Cleaning.
•
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 by the
manufacturer.
8
•
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages
before placing them in the freezer.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the
door from closing properly.

Thawing
Fresh food refrigeration
Frozen food, prior to being used, 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.
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
flavour.
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and
then refrozen.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
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.
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & wild poultry): wrap
in polythene bags and place on top of the salad
drawer.
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
any type of frozen food: follow the oven instructions,
particularly regarding the placement of aluminium
wrapping or containers in the oven.
Defrosted cooked food must never be
refrozen.
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 help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad drawers.
Electrical connections
Any electrical work required to install this appliance
should be carried out by a qualified electrician or
competent person.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE

Attention
The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for
storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing
fresh foods.
Freezing fresh food
After completion of the door reversing operation,
check that the door gasket adheres to the cabinet. If
the ambient temperature is cold (i.e. in Winter), the
gasket may not fit perfectly to the cabinet. In that
case, wait for the natural fitting of the gasket or
accelerate this process by heating up the part
involved with a normal hairdryer.
To freeze fresh foods it is necessary to change the
setting of the thermostat knob.
However, for a quicker freezing operation, turn the
thermostat knob to the coldest setting; but remember
that, in this condition the refrigerator compartment
temperature might drop below 0° C.
If this occurs reset thermostat knob to a warmer
setting.
In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 3 kg. of fresh
food.
