Final Check
Important Notes :
Before you start using the freezer
check that:
1. The feet have been adjusted and the
product is level.
2. The interior is dry and air can circulate
freely at the rear.
3. Clean the interior as recommended
4. Insert the plug into the wall socket
and switch on the electricity supply.
Avoid accidental disconnection by
taping over the switch.
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. Front edges of the cabinet may feel
warm. This is normal. These areas
aredesigned to be warm to avoid
7. 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
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
19 hours. If the failure is longer, then
the food should be checked and either
eaten immediately or cooked and then
2. If you find the freezer door difficult to
open just after you have closed it,

light up.
5 Using your freezer
Storing the frozen food
food should be stored in accordance
with the frozen food manufacturer's
instructions for a
frozen food
storage compartment.
The freezing area is marked with
symbol on the door liner.
To ensure that the high quality achieved
by the frozen food manufacturer and the
food retailer is maintained the following
should be remembered:
1. Put packets in the freezer as quickly
as possible after purchase.
2. Do not exceed "Use By", "Best
Before" dates on the packaging.
3. Please note that drawers, baskets,
flaps, trays are all removable.
Never use hairdryers, electrical heaters
and other similar electrical
appliances for defrosting.
When defrosting has finished, sponge
out any defrost water which collects at
the bottom of the freezer and dry the
interior thoroughly. Turn the thermostat
knob to mid point. Close the freezer
door. Insert the plug into the wall socket

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. Therefore defrosting
can be conducted without mess.
Containers full 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, forks to remove
the frost.
