10
Helpful Hints and Tips
The maximum amount of food that can be frozen in 24 hours is specified on the rating
plate, a label located on the inside of the appliance.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours: during this period do not add other food to be frozen.
Storage of frozen food
When first starting-up or after a period out of use, before putting the products in the compartment let the appliance run at least 2 hours on the higher settings.
In the event of accidental defrosting, for example due to a power failure, if the power has
been off for longer than the value shown in the technical characteristics chart under "rising
time", the defrosted food must be consumed quickly or cooked immediately and then refrozen (after cooling).
Frozen Food Calendar
The symbols show different types of frozen goods.
The numbers indicate storage times in months for the appropriate types of frozen goods.
Whether the upper or lower value of the indicated storage time is valid depends on the
quality of the foods and treating before freezing.
Thawing
Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in the refrigerator compartment or at room temperature, depending on the time available for this operation.
Small pieces may even be cooked still frozen, directly from the freezer: in this case, cooking
will take longer.
Ice-cube production
This appliance is equipped with one or more trays for the production of ice-cubes. Fill these
trays with water, then put them in the freezer compartment.
Do not use metallic instruments to remove the trays from the freezer.
Cold accumulators
One or more cold accumulators are supplied in the freezer; these increase the length of
time for which food will keep in the event of a power failure or breakdown.
HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
Hints for freezing
To help you make the most of the freezing process, here are some important hints:
• the maximum quantity of food which can be frozen in 24 hrs. is shown on the rating
plate;
Care and cleaning
11
• the freezing process takes 24 hours. No further food to be frozen should be added during
this period;
• only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly cleaned, foodstuffs;
• prepare food in small portions to enable it to be rapidly and completely frozen and to
make it possible subsequently to thaw only the quantity required;
• wrap up the food in aluminium foil or polythene and make sure that the packages are
airtight;
• do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to touch food which is already frozen, thus avoiding a
rise in temperature of the latter;
• lean foods store better and longer than fatty ones; salt reduces the storage life of food;
• water ices, if consumed immediately after removal from the freezer compartment, can
possibly cause the skin to be freeze burnt;
• it is advisable to show the freezing in date on each individual pack to enable you to keep
tab of the storage time.
Hints for storage of frozen food
To obtain the best performance from this appliance, you should:
• make sure that the commercially frozen foodstuffs were adequately stored by the retailer;
• be sure that frozen foodstuffs are transferred from the foodstore to the freezer in the
shortest possible time;
• not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than absolutely necessary.
• Once defrosted, food deteriorates rapidly and cannot be refrozen.
• Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the food manufacturer.
CARE AND CLEANING
CAUTION!
Unplug the appliance before carrying out any maintenance operation.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling unit; maintenance and recharging must
therefore only be carried out by authorized technicians.
Periodic cleaning
The equipment has to be cleaned regularly:
• clean the inside and accessories with lukewarm water and some neutral soap.
• regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure they are clean and free from
debris.
• rinse and dry thoroughly.
Do not pull, move or damage any pipes and/or cables inside the cabinet.
Never use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning products or wax polishes
to clean the interior as this will damage the surface and leave a strong odour.

What to do if…
Clean the condenser (black grill) and the compressor at the back of the appliance with a
brush. This operation will improve the performance of the appliance and save electricity
consumption.
Take care of not to damage the cooling system.
Many proprietary kitchen surface cleaners contain chemicals that can attack/damage the
plastics used in this appliance. For this reason it is recommended that the outer casing of
this appliance is only cleaned with warm water with a little washing-up liquid added.
After cleaning, reconnect the equipment to the mains supply.
Defrosting of the freezer
The freezer compartment of this model, on the other hand, is a "no frost" type. This means
that there is no buildup of frost when it is in operation, neither on the internal walls nor on
the foods.
The absence of frost is due to the continuous circulation of cold air inside the compartment, driven by an automatically controlled fan.
Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long periods, take the following precautions:
• disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
• remove all food
• defrost5) and clean the appliance and all accessories
• leave the door/doors ajar to prevent unpleasant smells.
If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to check it once in a while to prevent the food
inside from spoiling in case of a power failure.
