13
Installation
Basket Storage
Frozen food should be stored in the two lower baskets and the top
compartment used for fast freezing.
Freezer Tray
The freezer tray is particularly suitable for open freezing, for example
strawberries, raspberries etc.
14
Starting up and temperature regulation
To Start the Appliance
1.Allow the appliance to stand for 2 hrs after installation.
2. Plug in the appliance and switch on at the mains supply.
3. Freezing different products should always be done in the freezing
compartment after proper preparation.
4. Push the freezer switch (pops up and lights by pressing) 4 hours before
freezing food of small quantities and about 24 hours before freezing
products of larger quantities. This time the compressor operates continuously
to reach the temperature necessary for freezing.
5. Place in the foods to be frozen and let the appliance operate for about 24
hours as written above.
6. Then push the fast freezer switch again (the yellow light will go out and the
switch turns to its original position).
7. The freezing tray is suitable for freezing smaller fruits (raspberry, strawberry,
currant, etc.). Fruits should be put on the tray in thin layers without
packaging. After freezing they can be packed and sorted out then placed into
the storing compartments.
Thermostat Control
The temperature within the
freezer is controlled by the
thermostat control knob situated
on the control panel.
0 = Off
Turning the thermostat control
knob clockwise makes the
temperature progressively colder.
15
Switching Off the Appliance
When the appliance is not in use for long periods, disconnect from the
electricity supply, empty all foods and clean the appliance, leaving the door
open to prevent unpleasant smells.
Freezing and Storing Frozen Food
It is important that fresh food placed in the freezer is frozen quickly and that
the food already in the freezer is heated as little as possible.
If more than 3-4 kg of food is to be frozen:
1. Push the fast freeze switch (d) to the right 6-24 hours before placing the
fresh food in the freezer, the yellow light will illuminate. The compressor will
now run continuously, to ensure that the fresh food is frozen as quickly as
possible.
2. Place the food in the freezing compartment and leave the 'fast freeze' switch
on for a further 24 hours.
3. Then push the fast freezer switch again (the yellow light will go out and the
switch turns to its original position).
4. The freezing tray is suitable for freezing smaller fruits (raspberry, strawberry,
currant, etc.). Fruits should be put on the tray in thin layers without
packaging. After freezing they can be packed and sorted out then placed into
the storing compartments.
If the 'fast freeze' switch is accidentally left on, the freezer will not be
damaged, but energy will be wasted.
Frozen Food Storage
When first starting the freezer or if the freezer has been out of use for some
time, we advise you to run your appliance for at least 2 hours with the 'fast
freeze' switch on before storing frozen food.
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the manufacturer.
Do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than is necessary.
Important
Do not put carbonated liquids in the freezer. Ice lollies, if consumed
immediately after removal from the freezer can cause a low temperature
skin burn. Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands are damp/wet,
as this could cause skin abrasions or frost/freezer burns. In the event of a
power cut the food in the freezer will not be affected if the power cut is
short and the freezer is full. Do not open the lid. Should the food begin to
thaw it must be consumed quickly and must not be refrozen.
16
Thawing
Deep frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in a 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.
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.
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
Preparation of Ice Cubes
1. Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place in the freezing
compartment and leave to freeze.
2. To remove the cubes twist the tray or hold it under running water for a few
seconds.
Never try to free an ice tray that is frozen to the freezer compartment by
using pointed or sharp edged objects.
17
Defrosting

8.
The freezer compartment will become progressively covered with frost. This
should be removed with the special plastic scraper provided whenever the
thickness of frost exceeds 6 mm (1/4“).
During this operation it is not necessary to switch off the power supply or to
remove the foodstuffs.
However, when the ice becomes very thick on the inner liner, complete
defrosting should be carried out and it is advisable to peform this operation
when the appliance is empty.
To carry out complete defrosting:
Disconnect the appliance from the electrical supply. If the plug is inaccessible
turn the thermostat control knob to „0“.
Remove any stored food, wrap in several layers of newspaper and store in a
cool place.
Leave the door open.
Carefully draw the plastic
drain spout out of the lower
part of the appliance
according to the direction of
the arrow and place a tray of
a suitable size in the
position shown.
During defrosting, push the
defrost water towards the
edge of the cooling plates
using a dry cloth or a
sponge. It will be collected
at the bottom of the
appliance, from where it can
be diverted into the tray and then disposed of.
To accelerate the defrosting process place a bowl of hot (not boiling) water
inside the freezer and close the door.
When defrosting is completed, dry the interior thoroughly, replace the drain
spout and close the door.
Turn the thermostat control knob back to a medium setting and leave to run
for at least 4 hours with the 'fast freeze' switch on.
9. Replace the previously removed food.
Important
A temperature rise of the frozen food packs during defrosting may shorten
their safe storage life.
Never use sharp metal tools to scrape off frost from the evaporator as this
could damage the appliance beyond repair.
18
Cleaning and Care
Before any maintenance or cleaning is carried out you must DISCONNECT
the appliance from the electricity supply.
Internal Cleaning
Clean the inside and accessories with warm water and bicarbonate of soda (5
ml to 0.5 litre of water).
Rinse and dry thoroughly.
NEVER use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning products
or wax polishes to clean the interior as these will damage the surface and
leave a strong odour.
External Cleaning
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water.
Once or twice a year dust the condenser (black grille) and the compressor at
the back of the appliance with a brush or vacuum cleaner, as an
accumulation of dust will affect the performance of the appliance and cause
excessive electricity consumption.
Door seal
After opening and closing the door of your freezer you will not be able to
open the door again immediately. This is because a vacuum will have
developed inside, keeping the door closed until the pressures inside and
outside the door have equalised. After a few minutes you can easily reopen
the door.
19
Energy Saving Tips
Do not install the appliance near cookers, radiators or other sources of
warmth. High ambient temperatures cause longer, more frequent
operation of the compressor.
Ensure sufficient air circulation and exhaust at the appliance base and at
the back wall of the appliance. Never cover air vent openings.
Do not place warm foods into the appliance. Allow warm foods to cool
first.
Only leave door open as long as necessary.
Do not set temperature any colder than necessary.
Put frozen food in the fridge to defrost. The cold in the frozen food will
then be used to cool the fridge.
Always keep the heat emitting condenser, the metal grille on the rear wall
of your appliance clean.
20

Noises During Operation
The following noises are characteristic of refrigeration appliances:
Clicks
Whenever the compressor switches on or off, a click can be heard.
Humming
As soon as the compressor is in operation, you can hear it humming.
Bubbling/Splashing
When refrigerant flows into thin tubes, you can hear bubbling or splashing
noises. Even after the compressor has been switched off, this noise can be
heard for a short time.
Regulations, Standards, Guidelines
This appliance was designed for household use and was manufactured in
accordance with the appropriate standards. The necessary measures in
accordance with appliance safety legislation regulations (GSG), accident
prevention regulations for refrigeration appliances (VBG 20) and the
regulations of the German Society of Electrical Engineers (VDE) were
observed in the manufacture of this appliance. The refrigerant circuit has
been checked for leaks.
This appliance is in accordance with the following EUguidelines:
– 73/23/EWG dated 19 February 1973 - low voltage guidelines.
– 89/336/EWG dated 3 May 1989
(including guideline change notice 92/31/EWG) - EMV guideline
22
Technical Terminology
Refrigerant
Liquids that can be used to a generate a cooling effect are known as
refrigerants. They have a relatively low boiling-point, indeed so low,that
the warmth from the food stored in the fridge or freezer can cause the
refrigerant to boil and vaporise.
Refrigerant Circuit
Closed circulation system that contains the refrigerant. The refrigerant
circuit comprises primarily of an evaporator, a compressor, a condenser
and pipe work.
Evaporator
The refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator. Similar to all other liquids,
refrigerant requires heat to evaporate. This heat is removed from the
interior of the appliance, as a result the interior is cooled. The evaporator
is therefore located inside the appliance or placed in foam immediately
behind the inner wall and thus not visible.
Compressor
The compressor looks like a small drum. It is driven by a built-in electric
motor and is mounted on the base of the appliance at the rear. The task
of the compressor is to draw in vaporised refrigerant from the evaporator,
to compress it, and to pass it on to the condenser.
Condenser
The condenser normally has the form of a grid. The refrigerant compressed in the compressor is liquefied in the condenser. During this
process, heat is released to the surrounding air at the surface of the
condenser. The condenser is mounted on the base of the appliance.
