fresh foods.
To operate the appliance proceed as follows:
Freezing fresh food
Turn the thermostat control knob beyond the «■»
position.
When you first start the appliance, we suggest that
you turn the thermostat control knob to a medium
setting, although the temperature will be affected by:
-
Room temperature
-
How often the door is opened
-
How much food is stored
-
Position of the appliance
In determining the correct temperature control
setting all these factors have to be considered and
some experimentation may be necessary.
When altering the temperature setting, allow 24
hours for the temperature to stablise before making
further changes
To obtain a lower temperature, turn the thermostat
control knob towards max; to obtain a higher
temperature turn the control knob towards min. For
easier turning of this control knob, use a small coin.

It is not necessary to adjust the thermostat setting
when freezing fresh food.
In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 9 kg.
Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer of the
freezer as this is the coldest part.
Important
In the event of a power cut the food in the freezer will
not be affected if the power cut is short and if the
freezer is full. Do not open the door. Should the food
begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must
not be re-frozen .
Rear spacers
Frozen food storage
In the bag with the documentation, there are two
spacers which must be fitted as shown in the figure.
When first starting-up or after a period of use, before
putting the products in the compartment let the
appliance run for at least two hours on the coldest
setting, then turn the thermostat knob to the normal
opertion position.
Slacken the screws and insert the spacer under the

Warning
E
G
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and
then refrozen.
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with one or more trays for
ice-cubes trays.
Fill the tray(s) 3/4 full to give the ice space to expand
and place them in the freezer compartment.
To release the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight
twist.
Do not use sharp or metallic instruments to remove
the trays from the freezer.
Cold accumulators
The freezer contains two cold accumulators which
can be found in one of the freezer drawers. Place the
cold accumulators in the FAST FREEZE
compartment. The cold accumulators increase
storage times in the event of a power cut or
breakdown.
Removal of these units will increase the capacity of
the fast freezing compartment but will reduce
storage times in the event of a power cut or
breakdown.
Fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
flavour.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & wild fowl): wrap in
polythene bags and place on top of the salad
crispers.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad crispers.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the
oven instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in
the oven.
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.

When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is
being pumped round, and you will hear a whirring
sound or pulsating noise from the compressor.
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
appliance are not obstructed.
•
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you
will hear a faint ’click’ when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages
before placing them in the freezer.
•
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge.
•
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should be
placed in the fridge before being transferred to
the freezer.
•
•
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it
straight away. The use of an insulated container is
advisable. When you arrive home place the frozen
food in the freezer immediately.
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will ensure
safer defrosting of foods and reduce the work of
the refrigeration unit.
•
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
•
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the
door from closing properly.
•
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your refrigerator as short as possible.
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
•
Do not store food uncovered.
•
Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated
and labelled and used in date order to ensure
that food is consumed at its best.
•
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean, refer to Maintenance and Cleaning.
•
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food,
salt reduces the storage time.
•
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal .
•
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of
refrozen water droplets on the pack could indicate
that the product has not been kept at a suitable
temperature and that it may have lost its original
quality. Partially thawed food must not be
refrozen, it must be consumed within 24 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated by the
manufacturer.

In the Event of a Power Failure
If there is a power failure during the storage of frozen
foods, keep the door closed. If the temperature within
your freezer should rise, do not refreeze the food
without checking its condition. The following
guidelines should assist you:
Ice-cream: Once thawed should be discarded.
Fruits & Vegetables: If soft should be cooked and
used up.
Breads & Cakes: Can be refrozen without danger.
Shellfish: Should be refrigerated and used up
quickly.
Cooked Dishes: i. e. casseroles should be
refrigerated and used up.
Large Pieces of Meat: Can be refrozen providing
there are still ice crystals remaining within them.
Small Joints: Should be cooked and can then be
refrozen as cooked dishes.
Chicken: Should also be cooked and refrozen as a
fresh dish.
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 pre-treating before freezing.

When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is
being pumped round, and you will hear a whirring
sound or pulsating noise from the compressor.
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
appliance are not obstructed.
•
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you
will hear a faint ’click’ when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages
before placing them in the freezer.
•
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge.
•
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should be
placed in the fridge before being transferred to
the freezer.
•
•
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it
straight away. The use of an insulated container is
advisable. When you arrive home place the frozen
food in the freezer immediately.
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will ensure
safer defrosting of foods and reduce the work of
the refrigeration unit.
•
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
•
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the
door from closing properly.
•
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your refrigerator as short as possible.
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
•
Do not store food uncovered.
•
Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated
and labelled and used in date order to ensure
that food is consumed at its best.
•
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean, refer to Maintenance and Cleaning.
•
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food,
salt reduces the storage time.
•
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal .
•
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of
refrozen water droplets on the pack could indicate
that the product has not been kept at a suitable
temperature and that it may have lost its original
quality. Partially thawed food must not be
refrozen, it must be consumed within 24 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated by the
manufacturer.

In the Event of a Power Failure
If there is a power failure during the storage of frozen
foods, keep the door closed. If the temperature within
your freezer should rise, do not refreeze the food
without checking its condition. The following
guidelines should assist you:
Ice-cream: Once thawed should be discarded.
Fruits & Vegetables: If soft should be cooked and
used up.
Breads & Cakes: Can be refrozen without danger.
Shellfish: Should be refrigerated and used up
quickly.
Cooked Dishes: i. e. casseroles should be
refrigerated and used up.
Large Pieces of Meat: Can be refrozen providing
there are still ice crystals remaining within them.
Small Joints: Should be cooked and can then be
refrozen as cooked dishes.
Chicken: Should also be cooked and refrozen as a
fresh dish.
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 pre-treating before freezing.

Warning
E
G
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and
then refrozen.
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with one or more trays for
ice-cubes trays.
Fill the tray(s) 3/4 full to give the ice space to expand
and place them in the freezer compartment.
To release the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight
twist.
Do not use sharp or metallic instruments to remove
the trays from the freezer.
Cold accumulators
The freezer contains two cold accumulators which
can be found in one of the freezer drawers. Place the
cold accumulators in the FAST FREEZE
compartment. The cold accumulators increase
storage times in the event of a power cut or
breakdown.
Removal of these units will increase the capacity of
the fast freezing compartment but will reduce
storage times in the event of a power cut or
breakdown.
Fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
flavour.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & wild fowl): wrap in
polythene bags and place on top of the salad
crispers.
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the bottom salad crispers.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the
oven instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in
the oven.
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
