At the end of its working life, the product must not be disposed of as
urban waste. The refrigeration system contains insulating gases and
refrigerants, which require specialised waste disposal. The valuable
materials contained in this appliance can be recycle. It must be taken
to a special local authority differentiated waste collection centre or to
a dealer providing this service.
Before disposing of an old appliance, remove the door seals, latch or
bolt lock to avoid the risk of child entrapment.
Disposing of a household appliance separately avoids possible
negative consequences for the environment and health deriving from
inappropriate disposal and enables the constituent materials to be
recovered to obtain significant savings in energy and resources. As a
reminder of the need to dispose of household appliances separately,
the product is marked with a crossed-out wheeled dustbin.
Before First Use
You must allow the freezer to settle for at least twenty four hours
prior to switching the power on.
It is recommended that you clean the interior of the appliance prior to
first use, using a solution of bicarbonate of soda and warm water and
then thoroughly drying the interior.
The freezer may have an odour to it at first use. This will
disappear as the appliance cools.
Please note:
• The appliance will work continuously until it comes down to the
correct temperature.
• If the appliance is switched off, you should allow five minutes

Controls and Use
fig. 1
1.Thermostat dial
The thermostat automatically keeps the internal temperature at a
constant level. The temperature is regulated by the thermostat dial,
located on the freezer control panel. To change the temperature,
turn the dial anti-clockwise from 1 (highest temperature) to 5 (coldest
temperature). We recommend that you start with the appliance set
to position 3.
Do not turn the dial beyond the maximum. To switch the freezer
off, turn the dial anticlockwise to the minimum position.
2.Super freeze button
This freezer is equipped with a super freeze function. This allows
the freezer compressor to run continuously and so freezes food
more quickly. To select this function, press the button briefly, the
super freeze indicator light (5) illuminates. To switch the function
off, press the button and hold it for three seconds, the indicator light
goes out again.
Note that this function will switch itself off automatically after 24
3.Power indicator light
This green light will illuminate when the freezer is switched on.
4.Over temperature indicator light
This red light will illuminate when the temperature inside the freezer
is too high. This may illuminate after the door has been opened,
or when fresh food is added and should switch off again once the
temperature within the freezer has stabilised.
5.Super freeze indicator light
This yellow light will illuminate when the super freeze function has
been switched on with the super freeze switch (2).

• First remove the freezer drawers.
• To speed up the process, place a bowl of warm water in the base of
the freezer compartment.
Once defrosting is complete, dry the inside of the freezer
compartment with a sponge or clean cloth thoroughly. Then reconnect the mains power supply.
• Clean the drawers separately by hand using soap and water. Do not
put them in a dishwasher.

Installation and Ventilation
This appliance must never be installed close to heat sources i.e.
heating elements, cookers or in damp places
The diagram shows the ventilation requirements for your product.
Failure to provide adequate ventilation can lead to increased running
costs and
premature failure and may invalidate the warranty provided with the

The main consideration when installing any refrigeration unit into
a fitted kitchen is ventilation. The heat removed from the cooling
compartment needs to be dissipated into the atmosphere. Incorrect
ventilation can lead to premature compressor failure, excessive power
consumption and total system failure. For products intended to be
installed into a tall housing unit, the following requirements need to be
met: Important
Please follow the instructions to install this unit
An air intake
should be
somewhere in
the cabinet run to
allow free air in.
In this example,
a plinth vent is
shown underneath
the refrigerator .
The top of the cabinet needs to be
vented into the room
Recommended size of vent opening:
500 x 35mm
If the furniture does not allow free air
into the room then a plinth vent, or other
means of ventilation needs to be provided to ensure a natural flow of air
A thin section of
the plinth can be
removed to allow

There should be space at the rear of the
cabinet to allow cool air to be drawn over
the condenser.

fig. 3
The open channel at the rear is clearly shown. For the correct
operation of the appliance it is important that the top of the housing
unit is not blocked off. A channel depth of 40-50mm is normal with
most units.
A hole is shown in the base shelf of the unit; this allows air to be
drawn over the compressor & heat exchange. Some installers fit a
decorative plinth vent. In most cases this is not required, but is a
welcome aesthetic addition.
As a rule, the more air can get in, the better and more efficient the
operation of the product.
Reversing the Door
fig. 4
It is possible to reverse the door on
this appliance, if required. To do so,
follow the steps below:
Loosen the top hinge fixing screws
and remove the top hinge, taking
care to support the weight of the
Lift the door from the bottom hinge
and place on a soft surface to
protect the door from damage.
Refit the hinge taken from the top
to the opposite lower corner, as in
figure 4.
Replace the door and refit the
hinge taken from the lower corner
to the opposite top corner.
Adjust the hinges to ensure the
door is aligned correctly.
Mounting the Fascia
• Using a screwdriver, fix the mounting
brackets to the appliance door, as
shown in figure 5.
• Position the appliance within the unit.
Ensure that there is a gap of 3 to 4 mm between the non-hinged
side and the cabinet wall.
• Locate the slider in the bracket and fix
the slider to the fascia door 20 to 22 mm from the edge of
the fascia as shown in figure 6, ensuring that the slider is positioned
centrally and horizontally within the bracket. Tighten securely
by hand.
• Fill the gap on the non-hinged side
with the seal strip provided, as shown in figure 7.
