Please choose the setting according
to the desired temperature.
The interior temperature also
depends on ambient temperature,
the frequency with which the door is
opened and the amount of foods kept
Frequently opening the door causes
the interior temperature to rise.
For this reason, it is recommended
to close the door again as soon as
possible after use.
The normal storage temperature of
your appliance should be -18 °C (0 °F).
Lower temperatures can be obtained
by adjusting the thermostat knob
towards Position MAX.
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.
Setting the operating

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. The green light
will not glow if the thermostat is set
to ‘0’ position. The green indicator
does not give any indication of the
temperature inside the freezer.
Amber Indicator (2): This indicator
will glow when the fast freeze switch
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

Frequently opening the door causes
the interior temperature to rise.
For this reason, it is recommended
to close the door again as soon as
possible after use.
The normal storage temperature
of your appliance should be -18 °C (0
°F). If the thermostat knob is turned
counter clockwise from position
1, the appliance will be switched
off and “click” sound will be heard.
Lower temperatures can 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 at take the reading
immediately since the thermometer
temperature will rise very rapidly after
you remove it from the freezer.
Freezing food
The freezing area is marked with
symbol on the door liner.
You can use the appliance for
freezing fresh food as well as for
storing pre-frozen food.
Please refer to the recommendations
given on the packaging of your food.
A Attention
Do not freeze fizzy drinks, as the
bottle may burst when the liquid in it
is frozen.
Be careful with frozen products such
as coloured ice-cubes.
Do not exceed the freezing capacity
of your appliance in 24 hours. See the
rating label.
In order to maintain the quality of the
food, the freezing must be effected as
rapidly as possible.
Thus, the freezing capacity will not
be exceeded, and the temperature
inside the freezer will not rise.
A Attention
Keep the already deep-frozen food
always separated with freshly placed
When deep-freezing hot food, the
cooling compressor will work until the
food is completely frozen. This can
temporarily cause excessive cooling
of the refrigeration compartment.
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 equalize and
allow the door to open normally after
a few minutes.
You will hear a vacuum sound just
after closing the door. This is quite
Let the ice cubes slightly thaw
instead, or put the bottom of the tray
in hot water for a short moment.
Fast freeze
If large amounts of fresh food are
going to be frozen, push the fast
freeze switch 24 hours before putting
the fresh food in the fast freeze
It is strongly recommended to keep
fast freeze switch on 24 hours to
freeze maximum amount of fresh food
declared as freezing capacity. Take
special care not to mix frozen food and
fresh food.
Making ice cubes
Fill the ice-cube tray 3/4 full with
water and place it in the freezer.
As soon as the water has turned into
ice, you can take out the ice cubes.
Never use sharp objects such as
knives or forks to remove the ice
cubes. There is a risk of injury!
