THE CONTROL PANEL
The freezer is controlled with switches and the thermostat button.
It is shown below:
1 ON/OFF switch (green signal lamp)
2 Continuous operation button (yellow signal lamp)
3 Alarm off button (red signal lamp)
KEY:
1) ON /OFF SWITCH When the appliance is switched on, the green light comes on.
When it is off, the light goes off.
2) CONTINUOUS OPERATION BUTTON This switch is used to select one of the two automatic operation
modes: continuous and automatic.
i) CONTINUOUS OPERATION –
the yellow light is on. In continuous operation, the cooling system
will work constantly to chill your appliance. Select this mode
when you want to freeze large amounts of fresh foods and in
case you want to deep freeze foods that are already frozen.
ii) AUTOMATIC OPERATION –
the yellow light is off. The interior temperature is controlled by the
thermostat which turns the cooling system on and off.
How often the appliance switches its cooling system on and
off depends on:
• The thermostat knob position (thermostat position)
• How often you open the door.
• Ambient temperature.
3) Alarm off Button and the red signal lamp
• You turn the alarm off by pressing the Alarm off’ button. It looks
like this:
The alarm goes on because the temperature inside the freezer
has risen errantly beyond the scope of the setting you had
selected (red signal lamp will be on). It will also go off when the
there is excessive dust collected at the back of the condenser
(red signal lamp will be off).
162579
8
Temperature Selection
You control the freezer’s interior temperature automatically by
setting the thermostat. This can be found on the control panel at
the bottom of the freezer.
• The most suitable position is in the middle between max. (7) &
min. (1).
• We recommend setting the thermostat on a position
approaching maximum (7) only to accelerate cooling (e.g.,
before loading smaller amounts of fresh foods or when the
operation mode has risen to the ambient temperature).
• Thermostat settings towards min. (1) help you save energy,
provided that the freezer is loaded with a smaller amount of
frozen foods.
• Changes in the ambient temperature will affect the
temperature in the interior of the appliance.
• Choose the correct setting using the thermostat knob (pictured
below).
Using Your Freezer
Starting Your Freezer
For The First Time
(* After It Has Been
Installed)
• Switch the freezer on.
• The sound alarm will come on because the temperature will be
too high. It is designed to activate when exposed to this. THIS
IS NORMAL. You switch the alarm off by pressing the alarm
button:
• On the control panel, switch to the continuous operation
position. All three signal lamps will light up. Place fresh food
into the freezer several hours after the red signal lamp has
gone off.
• 24 hours before you place fresh food in the freezer, switch the
continuous operation button (‘2’ in Figure on page 7) on (i.e.,
so that the yellow lamp comes on). At the end of this period,
load fresh food into the freezing compartment (the topmost
compartment of the freezer).
• After 24 hours, move the frozen food to the storage
compartment of the freezer and repeat the freezing procedure
with a new load, if required.
• REMINDER - fresh food should not touch those packages that
are already frozen.
USING YOUR FREEZER
• Approximately 24 hours after the last loading of fresh food into
your freezer, press the continued operation button again (‘2’ in
Figure on page 7) so that the freezer switches to its automatic
operation (yellow light turns off).

162579
Proper Freezing Procedure
• If you want to freeze small quantities of fresh food (1-2kg),
you DON’T have to switch the appliance to the continuous
operation mode.
• The storage time and recommended temperature for storing
commercially frozen foods is indicated on the packaging. For
storing and use, consider the manufacturer’s instructions.
• When shopping, be careful to choose only packages of foods
which are adequately packed and provided with complete
data. They should be stored in freezers where the temperature
is not higher than -18°C.
• Do not buy packages of food encased in frost or ice.
This indicates that the package has thawed at least once
previously.
• Take care that packages don’t start to thaw. Temperature rise
shortens the storage time of commercially frozen foods.
Points To Bear In Mind
When Using Your
Freezer
162579
10
• Do NOT touch the cooled surfaces while your freezer is
operating, especially not with wet hands or mouth. Skin might
stick to the cold surfaces and become damaged.
• Do not freeze bottled drinks, especially not fizzy ones such as
mineral water, sparkling wine, beer, cola, etc., because liquid
expands during freezing and may make the container it is in
explode.
• With the exception of ice cream, never try to eat frozen food.
You may get frostbite or damage your teeth and mouth.
• Carefully check the food for colour or smell. If you are in doubt
about the quality of the food stored, throw it away because it
may be spoiled and therefore dangerous to eat.
• Disconnect the appliance from the mains before repairing (only
a qualified technician should repair it) and before cleaning /
maintenance.
• Only use the tools enclosed with your appliance or those tools
that have been recommended for use in this manual.
• The rating plate is in the interior or on the rear wall of the
appliance.
• Storing time During Power Supply Interruption. Avoid opening
the freezer in case of a blackout that lasts longer than 15
hours.

• To reduce humidity and possible frost, NEVER place liquids in
unsealed containers in the freezer.
• Make sure that you arrange food in such a way that the door
can close completely.
• NOTE - Sometimes your freezer door may seem ‘stuck’ if
you try to open it again right after closing it. This normal
phenomenon is due to pressure shifts within the appliance and
should clear in a few minutes. Please give it this time before
re-opening.
• NEVER place warm food inside the freezer. Warm food must
be allowed to cool to room temperature first.
• Unpleasant odours within may mean your freezer needs to be
cleaned or that food has spoiled and needs to be discarded.
• Pack food in freezer storage bags, noting the type of food,
quantity, date prepared and inserted into the freezer. Write this
information on the bags.

• Always be mindful of the storage life of foods you are going
to be freezing for a long time. Although the temperature of
the freezer can dip to a very low level, this does not mean
that food can be stored indefinitely. Pay particular attention to
the information printed on the packaging of the foods you are
going to be placing in your freezer.
• Always store food with a view to how often it will be used.
Food consumed daily should be placed in a more accessible
place than food stored long-term so that you don’t end up
leaving the door open for extended periods while searching for
food.
• Do not store excessive quantities or weights of food. Always
try to leave gaps between your packages for better storage
results.
• Do NOT place food too closely to the interior walls. Items
placed too closely to walls may freeze to them!
• Do not load tepid packages alongside frozen ones in your
freezer. The freshly introduced food may cause a slight and
potentially detrimental thaw in the frozen article/s.
• Use correct packaging and wrap items correctly.
• The packaging should be airtight and shouldn’t leak since this
could cause substantial vitamin loss and dehydration from
your food.
• Foil and bags should be applied carefully to articles of food so
that they can be stored systematically & comfortably within the
freezer.
• It is very important that the food is frozen as soon as possible.
We recommended that the size of the package not be too
large. It should also have been sufficiently cooled (at least to
room temperature) before being loaded in your freezer.
• The amount of fresh foods that can be loaded within 24 hours
is indicated on the rating plate (freezing capacity).
• Food cut into small portions will be easier to defrost and cook.
The recommended weight for each portion is 2.5kg.
• The outside of a food packaging should be dry before being
placed in the freezer. All packages should be odour-free and
non-toxic.
162579
12
A NOTE ON DEFROSTING
• Partially thawed or defrosted foods should be consumed as
soon as possible. Cold air preserves the food but it does not
destroy micro-organisms which rapidly activate themselves
after defrosting to make foods perishable. Partial defrosting
reduces the nutritional value of foods, especially of fruits,
vegetables and ready-made meals.
• Generally, you should NOT refreeze defrosted items.
Cleaning/Maintenance
LONG ABSENCES: In the case of long absences (extended
holidays, sabbaticals, etc.), the appliance must be switched off,
emptied out completely, dried and the doors left slightly open to
prevent the formation of mould and unpleasant odours.
NOTE: Before attempting to clean your appliance, UNPLUG
IT and make sure you do the following:
WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU CLEAN AND MAINTAIN YOUR
REFRIGERATOR ONCE A MONTH.
• Pay particular attention to the sealing rubber bars of the doors.
These need to be kept clean for hygienic reasons as well as to
allow the door to close properly.
• Leave the door open during cleaning.
• In order to collect the defrosted water, take out the bottom
drawer and soak up the water using a sponge as shown in the
figure pictured below.
To accelerate the defrosting process, you can scrape off any
frost that may have formed on the back coils using a plastic
spatula. DO NOT USE A METAL ONE!!!!
162579
• Clean the inside of your Freezer after using a solution of soda
bicarbonate in warm water (1 tablespoon Bicarbonate to 2
litres of water).
• Clean the condenser (back of unit) with a broom once a year.
13
Never Use Solvents To Clean Your Freezer
MAINTENANCE FROM TIME TO TIME, YOU WILL NEED TO
REPLACE THE INTERNAL BULB. REMEMBER TO UNPLUG
YOU APPLIANCE FIRST
Find the lamp housing in the top right of the refrigerator’s
interior.
Gently move the transparent lamp cover plate from the lamp
cradle.
Unscrew the bulb and replace with a new one, maximum
10W.
HOW TO CLEAN THE CONDENSER – the condenser consists
of a coil structure at the back of your freezer.
To clean it, carefully follow the following instructions:
To optimize the operation of the appliance and to save energy
you should periodically clean the dust from the condenser at the
back of the appliance.
NOTE: You will be alerted to the presence of excessive
amounts of dust on the condenser by a sound alarm.
Upon hearing this alarm, you should:
• Check the air circulation through the bottom rail openings.
• If necessary, clean or vacuum the dust from the condenser.
See the instructions below & on the next page.
To check if there is dust and clear dust away
1. If the air opening in the bottom rail of the fridge is dirty or
dusty, you should clean or vacuum it (see the figure below).
2. Remove the bottom board of the unit cabinet.
3. Push a finger through the opening in the bottom rail and
release the fastener.
4. Pull the rail towards you and remove it.
6. Pull the condenser dish out.
7. Use the vacuum cleaner to clean the dust from the condenser.
8. Replace the condenser dish & the bottom rail in the opposite
order to taking them out.
162579
Disconnect the freezer from the mains before you clean the
condenser!
14
PERIODIC CLEANING OF THE CONDENSER
1. Firstly, disconnect it from the mains.
2. Empty the contents of your freezer. You should take the
necessary precautions to maintain any food items you wish
to keep. Remember that it is a health hazard to allow frozen
articles of food to thaw and then refreeze them. Wrap them
in newspaper or some other insulation-giving wrapper and/or
store them in another freezer.
3. Remove the appliance from the unit in which it is held.
4. Pull the appliance out so that you have access to the
condenser at the rear of the freezer. NOTE - you must take
care not to overbalance the appliance whilst moving it out
- WARNING: - Tipping hazard.
5. Unscrew the screws that secure the bonnet at the back of the
appliance. Remove the bonnet.
6. Clean the dust from and dirt from the condenser.
7. After replacing the bonnet, move the freezer back into the
cabinet space.
Defrosting
When the frost and ice layer on the inside of the appliance has
grown to 3-5 mm, you should defrost your freezer.
24 hours prior to defrosting, press the continuous operation
mode button (‘2’ in diagram on page 7). This will provide an
extra low temperature of food inside the freezer. After this
period, take the food out & protect it from melting (eg. Moving it
to another freezer &/or wrapping it in newspaper).
Disconnect the freezer from the mains power supply.
CAUTION!
• Avoid using defrosting sprays - these may damage the plastic
parts in the fridge and could be hazardous to health.
• Water collected at the bottom of the interior of the freezer
should be mopped with a sponge or a highly absorbent cloth.
Ensure that your freezer has adequate ventilation.
See the cleaning and installation sections for the
recommended openings you should observe.
Turn the thermostat from higher down to lower as
soon as possible, depending on how full the freezer
is and the ambient temperature.
Never use the continuous operation feature
unnecessarily. Press the operation mode selection
switch to the setting for automatic operation.
Try not to open the door too often, especially when
the weather is wet and hot. Once you open the door,
be sure to close it as soon as possible.
15
162579
Tips for Energy Savings
Use higher thermostat settings only if essential and
not for constant, long-term use.
Do not leave the appliance on Fast freeze indefinitely
or for periods in excess of that recommended in this
manual.
Before loading the appliance with packages of fresh
foods, ensure they are first cooled to the ambient
temperature.
If the door seal (gasket) is damaged, the energy
consumption will be much higher. To keep the sealing
in good condition, be sure not to spill oils or fats
on it. A damaged seal will need to be replaced. A
crushed seal can be ‘fluffed’ out using hot air from a
hair dryer held at a safe distance.
The condenser at the bottom of the appliance must
always be clean and free of dust.
162579

Troubleshooting
Trace a problem using the table below instead of having to call
for help.
Problem
What to do
YOUR FREEZER DOES
NOT APPEAR
TO BE WORKING /
NO APPARENT POWER
Check that the plug is well-inserted into the power socket. Plug in if
necessary.
Check that there is power from the mains-there may be a blackout
or your fuses may have blown.
Check That The Electronic Thermostat (Regulator Found On
The Inside Wall Of The Fridge-freezer Near The Top) Is In The
Recommended Functioning Position And Not ‘0’ (Off).
Check that the socket is sufficient and no adapter or extension
leads have been used.
Check that the power supply voltage corresponds to the appliance.
YOUR FREEZER
APPEARS TO BE
PERFORMING POORLY
You have overloaded the appliance or food has
Been packed too tightly. Take out
And consume food; look for out-of-date food
That can be disposed of.
The thermostat setting is set too low. Set it Higher.
Ensure that the door has been closed properly.
For instance, there may be a problem inside the
Unit, keeping the door open or another
Fault, such as a broken or missing
Door seal.
Ensure that there is no dust on the condenser.
Ensure that there is enough room at the rear and Sides of the unit.
The Cooling Gas Which Circulates May Make
A Slight Noise (Bubbling Sound) Even When
The Compressor Is Not Running. This Is
Normal. If These Sounds Change, Ensure:
Your Unit Is Well Levelled /
Nothing Is Touching The Rear Of The Unit /
No Material On The Appliance Is Vibrating.
Note: A Sound Like Flowing Water Is Perfectly
Natural As It Indicates That The Refrigerant Is
Flowing. This Is Not A Malfunction.
