Once re-established:
This freezer, marked
, is suitable for
freezing food and permits long term storage of
frozen food.

1... If the freezer has been disconnected and is
empty, plug it an and leave for 3 hours before
putting any food in. By pressing the fast freezer button 24 hours before freezing you will
help cool down the freezer quicker.
If the temperature alarm goes on see the earlier section on the temperature alarm.
2... It is possible that the temperature alarm will
sound if a lot of new food is put in with existing
food. This is due to a slight rise in temperature. The alarm will switch itself off automatically.
Conserving frozen food
To store Food properly the inside temperature
should never rise above - 18°C.
An ajustable temperature control regulates this
Make sure the thermostat is on a medium setting.
However, it may sometimes be necessary (due to
poor ventilation, high room temperatures, frequent
opening of doors…) to regulate the setting of the
In the case of an accidental stoppage of the
appliance or a power cut proceed as follows:
A) If the freezer is fully loaded and the power
failure is less than the time indicated on the
«Rating Plate» no damage has been done
to the food.
B) If the freezer is not fully loaded the temperature will rise more quickly. If thawing has
not started proceed as in point A.
C) If the temperature has risen sufficiently the
temperature alarm will sound and the temperature indicator will blink.
You should:
• Check that the doors are shut. If they are
not, you will hear also the door alarm.
• Check that you haven’t overloaded the
fridge/freezer with a large amount of new
• Check that there hasn’t been a long
power cut.
• Check that the fridge/freezer appears to
be working properly and isn’t broken. You
should switch the alarm off by pushing
the appropriate button.
If it continues to come back on it is likely
that there is a problem with the product.
Advice then to the Technical Oficial
If thawing has started, consume the food
immediately, or cook it and then freeze it
• Keep the doors closed at all times.
• Try to find out how long the loss of power will
How to use your
Refrigerator Compartment:
This compartment is designed to store drinks
and fresh food. The inner temperature is normally uniform and is kept cool by cold circulating air.
Try to avoid putting food products flush against the
air vents at the back of the fridge as this could
cause the foods to freeze. (see fig. 11).
The dynamic cooling system preserves better the
food, keeping its characteristics for a long time. For
that, wrap the food, so that it does not lose humidity (dehydration, loss of colour). Then, food value
and aroma will also be kept.
Some models might have.:
• A crisp and fresh vegetable compartment. If so,
it will also have a moisture filter which helps to
keep moisture levels high and therefore your
fruit and vegetables fresher.
• A chiller box. This is an ideal place to store meat,
fish and pre-cooked food.
Useful Hints
Do not introduce any new food during a freezing.
Do not put any newly introduced food for freezing near to already frozen food.
Wrap the food up properly or place it in air tight
containers before putting it into the fridge/freezer.
Do not put any hot food into the freezer.
Food and drinks, which have a strong smell,
may affect other foods and drinks if not stored in
an appropriate manner.
Follow instructions given in cookbooks to help
conserve food longer.

Normal noises when functioning
1. Temperature control.
May cause clicking sounds when the system is
connected or disconnected.
2. Cooling system.
The injected cooling gas may produce a gurgling
sound while passing through the tubes.
3. Motor.
May cause a humbing noise and/or slight bumping.
4. Insulation.
The material used has a tendency to slightly increase noise levels, however it allows for much better insulation and a lower energy consumption.
5. Fans.
You may occasionally hear the fans working. This
is nothing to worry about. The fans are simply helping the air to circulate more effectively.
