INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS
1. The space in the room where the
appliance is installed must not be
smaller than 10 cubic metres.
2. If possible avoid placing the
appliance near cookers, radiators or
in direct sunlight as this will cause the
compressor to run for long periods.
If installed next to a source of heat
or refrigerator, maintain the following
minimum side clearances:
From Cookers 2” (50 mm)
From Radiators 12” (300 mm)
From Refrigerators or Larder Fridge
1” (25 mm)
3. This appliance has been designed
to operate in ambient temperatures up
to 32 degrees C (90 degrees F) and
is equipped with Advanced Electronic
Temperature Control System [AETCS]
which ensures that at the advised
setting [4 - four on the knob] the frozen
EN
food in the freezer will not defrost
even if the ambient temperature falls
as low as -15 °C. When first installed
the product MUST NOT be placed in
low ambient temperatures because
the freezer will not reduce to it’s
standard operating temperature. Once
it has reached its steady operating
state it can be re-located. So you
may then install your appliance in a
garage or an unheated room without
having to worry about frozen food in
the freezer being spoilt. However at
low ambient temperatures mentioned
above, fridge contents are likely
to freeze, so check and consume
food in the fridge accordingly. When
the ambient temperature returns to
normal, you may change the knob
setting to suit your needs.
4.No gap is required at sides and top.
See item 4 below to ensure a gap is
obtained at the rear of the appliance.
If a gap is available on side and
top, retain it if possible as it would

Final Check
Before you start using the fridge/
freezer check that:
1. The feet have been adjusted for
perfect levelling.
2. The interior is dry and air can
circulate freely at the rear.
3. Clean the interior as recommended
under “CLEANING AND CARE.”
4. Insert the plug into the wall socket
and switch on the electricity supply.
Avoid accidental disconnection
by taping over the switch. Green
and red lights will glow and the
compressor will start running.
5. You will hear a noise as the
compressor starts up. The liquid and
gases sealed within the refrigeration
system may also give rise to noise,
whether the compressor is running or
not which is quite normal.
6. If you are going to store already
frozen food open the freezer door and
check that the fast-freeze switch is
at 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
already frozen food.
7. 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.
8. “ Slight undulation of the top of
the cabinet is quite normal due to the
manufacturing process used, so do
not worry, it is not a defect.
12
9. Front edges of the cabinet may feel
warm. This is normal. These areas
are designed to be warm to avoid
condensation.
10. We recommend that you set
the thermostat knob at 3 and
monitor the temperature to ensure
the appliance maintains desired
storage temperatures (see section
Temperature Control and Adjustment).
11. 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).
Important Notes :
1. If there is a power failure do not
open the door. Frozen food should not
be affected if the failure lasts for less
than 16.5 hours. If the failure is longer,
then the food should be checked and
either eaten immediately or cooked
and then re-frozen.
2. If you find the freezer door difficult
to open just after you have closed
it, don’t worry. This is due to the
pressure difference which will equalise
and allow the door to open normally
after a few minutes.
3. Always wrap food using a suitable
packaging material before storing
in your appliance to avoid contact
with the appliance surface and food
remains for hygiene reasons.

5 Using your refrigerator
TEMPERATURE CONTROL AND ADJUSTMENT
4
2
1
Temperature is controlled by the
thermostat which is located on the
rear wall of the cabinet.Thermostat
knob is located on the indicator light
set. “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 'number 4 ' position.
We recommend that you check the
temperature with a thermometer to
ensure that the storage compartments
are kept to the desired temperature.
Remember you must take your reading
very quickly since the thermometer
temperature will rise very rapidly
after you remove it from the freezer.
Please remember 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.
13

INDICATOR LIGHTS
There are three coloured indicator
lights located on the front of the
appliance which shows the operating
mode of the freezer.
Green Indicator (1)
Illuminates when the appliance is
connected to the mains and will glow
as long as electricity is available.
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 while fast freeze switch is
on. Fast freeze operation is for freezing
fresh food.
Red Indicator (3) Illuminates:
a. If the pre-set temperature can not
be maintained.
b. If excessive amounts of fresh food
are placed inside.
c. If the appliance door is left open
accidentally.
EN
IMPORTANT:
When you press the fast freeze switch,
there may be a short delay before the
compressor starts to operate. This
is normal and does not indicate a
compressor fault.
Remember you must take your
reading very quickly since the
thermometer temperature will rise very
rapidly after you remove it from the
freezer.
Please remember 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.
FREEZING FRESH FOOD
Operating temperatures are controlled
by the thermostat knob (see diagram)
located on the inner side wall of the
freezer compartment. Settings may
be made from 1, 2 ... fast freeze, fast
freeze being the coldest position.
When the appliance is switched
on for the first time, the thermostat
knob should be adjusted so that
after 24 hours, the average freezer
temperature is no higher than -18°C
(0°F). We recommend you set the
knob half way between the 1 and 4
setting. Lower temperatures may be
obtained by adjusting setting knob
towards fast freeze position.
We recommend that you check
the temperature with an accurate
thermometer to ensure that the
storage compartments are kept to the
desired temperature.
14
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 core as quickly as
possible.
Do not exceed the freezing capacity of
your appliance in 24 h which is 10 kg
(22 lb)
Placing warm food into the freezer
compartment causes the refrigeration
compressor to operate continuously
until the food is frozen solid.
If you are going to freeze fresh food
in excess of 2kg. (4.5 lb) turn the
thermostat knob to the fast freeze
position and wait for about 24 hours
before placing the fresh food in the
freezer.
Remember to turn the thermostat
knob back to its previous position once food has frozen.
It is recommended to place fresh
food to be frozen in fast freeze
compartment of the freezer.
Take special care not to mix already
frozen food and fresh food.
EN
