Temperature control
and adjustment
And note that:
4. You will hear a noise as the compressor
starts up. The liquid and gases sealed within
the refrigeration system may also make some
noise, whether the compressor is running or
not. This is quite normal.
Temperature is controlled by the thermostat
knob (Fig. 2). "Number 4" is the coldest
setting.
The normal storage temperature of your
appliance should be -18 °C (0 °F). Lower
temperatures may be obtained by adjusting
the thermostat knob towards Position 4.
We recommend checking the temperature with
a thermometer to ensure that the storage
compartments are kept to the desired
temperature. Remember to take the reading
immediately since the thermometer temperature
will rise very rapidly after you remove it from
the freezer.
Please remember that each time the door is
opened cold air escapes and the internal
temperature rises. Therefore never leave the
door open and ensure it is closed immediately
after food is put in or removed.
5. If you are going to store ready-frozen food,
open the freezer door and check that the fastfreeze switch is off (the amber light will not
come on). The red light will go out when the
freezer has reached the correct temperature.
Then you can put in your ready-frozen food.
(See Storing Frozen Food section).
6. If you are going to freeze fresh food, you
must press the fast-freeze switch.
The amber light will come on and you must
wait at least three hours before putting in your
fresh food to be frozen. (See Freezing Fresh
Food section).
7. We recommend setting the thermostat knob
at 3 and monitoring the temperature to ensure
the appliance maintains desired storage
temperatures (see section "Temperature control
and adjustment").
Before operating
8. Do not load the appliance immediately it is
switched on. Wait until the correct storage
temperature has been reached. We recommend
that you check the temperature with an accurate
thermometer (see; Temperature Control and
Adjustment).
Final Check
Before you start using the freezer check that:
1. The interior is dry and air can circulate freely
at the rear.
2. The interior is clean as recommended under
"CLEANING AND CARE."
Important Note:
If there is a power failure do not open the door.
Frozen food should not be affected if the failure
lasts for less than 16 hours. If the failure is
longer, then the food should be checked and
either eaten immediately or cooked and then
re-frozen.
3. The plug is inserted into the wall socket and
the electricity supply is switched on. Avoid
accidental disconnection by taping over the
switch. Green and red lights will glow and the
compressor will start running.

Indicator lights
Storing frozen food
There are three coloured indicator lights located
inside the appliance which show the operating
mode of the freezer (Fig. 2).
Your freezer is suitable for the long-term storage
of commercially frozen foods and also can be
used to freeze and store fresh food.
For storing home-frozen fresh food refer to the
storage-life guide on the door-liner.
If there is a power failure, do not open the
door. Frozen food should not be affected if the
failure lasts for less than 16 hrs. If the failure
is longer, then the food should be checked and
either eaten immediately or cooked and then
re-frozen
Green Indicator (1)
Illuminates when the appliance is connected to
the mains and will glow as long as there is
electricity present. The green light will not glow
if the thermostat is set in the 'O' position. The
green indicator does not give any indication
of the temperature inside the freezer.
Freezing fresh food
Amber Indicator (2)
This indicator will glow when the fast-freeze
switch (4) is on and will continue to glow
until the fast-freeze switch is turned off. The
compressor will run continuously whilst the fastfreeze switch is on. Fast-freeze operation is for
freezing fresh food (see Freezing Fresh Food,
section).
Please observe the following instructions to
obtain the best results.
Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one
time. The quality of the food is best preserved
when it is frozen right through to the centre as
quickly as possible.
Do not exceed the freezing capacity of your
appliance in 24 h.
Placing warm food into the freezer compartment
causes the refrigeration machine to operate
continously until the food is frozen solid.
Red Indicator (3) Illuminates:
a. When the appliance is first switched on,
and will stay on until the pre-set temperature
has been attained.
b. If the pre-set temperature can not be
maintained.
c. If the appliance is overloaded with fresh
food.
d. If the appliance door is left open accidentally.
Fast freeze
If you are going to freeze fresh food in excess
of 2 kg. (4.5 lb), turn on the fast-freeze switch
and wait about three hours before placing the
fresh food in the fast-freeze compartment
Remember to turn off the fast-freeze switch.
Leave the fast freeze switch on for about 24
hours if the maximum quantity is being frozen.
Take special care not to mix already
frozen food and fresh food.
Thermostat knob (5)
The thermostat knob is located on the indicator
light frame.
Important:
When you press the fast-freeze switch, there
may be a short delay before the compressor
starts to operate. This is normal and not a
compressor fault.

Cleaning and care
Defrosting
(Fig. 4, 5, 6)
1. We recommend that you switch off the
appliance at the socket outlet and pull out the
mains plug before cleaning.
2. Never use any sharp instruments or abrasive
substances, soap, household cleaner, detergent
or wax polish for cleaning.
3. Use luke warm water to clean the cabinet
of the appliance and wipe it dry.
4. Use a damp cloth wrung out in a solution
of one teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to one
pint of water to clean the interior and wipe it
dry.
5. Make sure that no water enters the
temperature control box.
6. If the appliance is not going to be used for
a long period of time, switch it off, remove all
food, clean it and leave the door ajar.
7. We recommend that you polish the metal
parts of the product (i.e. door exterior, cabinet
sides) with a silicone wax (car polish) to protect
the high quality paint finish.
8. Any dust that gathers on the condenser,
which is located at the back of the appliance,
should be removed once a year with a vacuum
cleaner.
9. Check door seals regularly to ensure they
are clean and free from food particles.
10. Never:
• Clean the appliance with unsuitable material;
eg petroleum based products.
• Subject it to high temperatures in any way,
• Scour, rub etc., with abrasive material.
11. Removal of dairy cover and door tray :
• To remove the dairy cover, first lift the cover
Defrosting is very straightforward and without
mess thanks to a special defrost water collection
facility at the bottom of the freezer.
Defrost twice a year or when a frost layer of
around 7 mm (1/4") has formed. To start the
defrosting procedure, switch off the freezer at
the socket outlet and pull out the mains plug.
All food should be wrapped in several layers
of newspaper and stored in a cool place (e.g.
fridge or larder).
Remove all freezer drawers. The special defrost
collection basin collects the defrost water.
Containers of warm water may be placed
carefully in the freezer to speed up the
defrosting.
Do not use pointed or sharp-edged
objects such as knives or
forks to remove the frost.
Never use hairdryers, electrical heaters
or other such electrical
appliances for defrosting.
When defrosting has finished, close the
defrosting part and dry the interior thoroughly.
Press the fast-freeze switch, and leave it on for
about three hours.
