BEFORE USING THE FREEZER
• Your new appliance is a freezer designed
exclusively for domestic use.
To get the most out of your freezer, please
read the instructions carefully. These contain
a description of your appliance as well as
useful tips for storing food.
Keep this handbook for future consultation.
1. After unpacking the appliance, make sure it is not
damaged and that the doors shut properly. Any
damage must be reported to your dealer within
24 hours after delivery of the appliance.
2. Wait at least two hours without moving the
appliance before switching on. This will give
the refrigerant circuit time to settle and
operate efficiently.
3. Installation of the appliance and electrical
connections must be carried out by a qualified
electrician, in accordance with the
manufacturer's instructions and local regulations.
SAFEGUARDING THE ENVIRONMENT
1. Packing
The packaging material is entirely recyclable, and
marked with the recycling symbol. Follow local
regulations for scrapping.
Keep the packaging materials (plastic bags,
polystyrene parts, etc.) out of reach of children, as
they are potentially dangerous.
Information:
This appliance does not contain CFCs (replaced
with R134a) or HFCs
(replaced with R600a - Isobutane). For more
information, refer to the identification data plate
affixed to the appliance.
2. Appliance
The freezer is made of recyclable material. Disposal
must be carried out in accordance with local
environmental regulations for waste disposal.
Make the appliance unusable by cutting off the
power cord. The appliance must be delivered to an
authorised collection centre for the recovery of
refrigerant gas.
PRECAUTIONS AND GENERAL
RECOMMENDATIONS
• Only use the freezer for storing frozen food,
freezing fresh food and making ice cubes.
• Do not cover or obstruct the air vents of the
appliance.
• Do not store liquids in glass containers in the
freezer: risk of bursting.
• Do not eat ice cubes or ice lollies immediately
after taking them out of the freezer: risk of "cold"
burns.
• Do not allow children to play or hide inside the
freezer: risk of becoming trapped inside and
suffocating.
• Do not swallow the contents of the ice packs.
• Before servicing or cleaning the appliance,
unplug it from the mains or disconnect the
electrical power supply.
• The power cable may only be replaced by an
authorised person.
Declaration of conformity
• This appliance is intended to come into contact with
foodstuffs and conforms to D.L. 108 of 25.01.1992
(European Directive 89/109/EEC).
Information
Appliances with Isobutane (R600a)
Isobutane is a natural gas with low environmental
impact. Caution is required, however, since
isobutane is flammable. Therefore, it is essential to
ensure that refrigerant pipelines are not damaged.

HOW TO OPERATE THE FREEZER
The freezer can be used for storing already frozen food and
for freezing fresh food. The amount of fresh food (in kg)
that can be frozen in 24 hours is indicated on the appliance
data plate. The freezer can operate at ambient
temperatures between +10° C and +32° C. Optimal
performance is obtained at temperatures between +16° C
and +32° C.
Switching on the freezer for the first time
• There is no need to set the freezer temperature on the
thermostat because the appliance is already factory set.
• Plug in the appliance. The green LED (indicating that the
appliance is ON) and the red LED will light up, and on some
models also the acoustic alarm (if provided) will sound after
about 1 minute, indicating that the freezer has not yet reached
a sufficiently cold temperature for storage of foodstuffs.
• To mute the acoustic alarm press the fast freeze button; the
yellow LED will light up.
• Deactivate the fast freeze function when the red LED goes out.
Adjusting the thermostat
Select the freezer compartment temperature using the
thermostat knob:
1 = Minimum chilling
4 = Maximum chilling
Ambient air temperature, the frequency of door opening and the
amount of food to freeze can affect the freezer temperature
adjustments.
We therefore recommend starting with a medium
temperature setting (2-3).
Function of LEDs and acoustic alarm (if present)
The green LED indicates whether the appliance is ON.
The red LED (and the acoustic alarm on some models) indicates
that the internal temperature of the appliance is not suitable for
storing food.
This occurs:
• After switching on the appliance.
• When the appliance is switched on again after defrosting and
cleaning operations.
• When too much fresh food is placed in the freezer.
• When the door is not closed properly.
• When the cooling system is faulty
(see “Troubleshooting guide”).
• When the thermostat is set to higher values (lower
temperatures).
The yellow LED indicates that the fast freeze function is activated.
When it is selected, it also mutes the acoustic alarm
(on some models only).
Freezers with door contact rod
The acoustic alarm sounds when the door has been left open for
more than 1 minute. The alarm stops when the door is closed. If it is
necessary to leave the freezer door open for more than 1 minute (e.g.
to rearrange food in the drawers), the alarm can be deactivated by
pulling the rod (see figure).
Fast freeze operation
To freeze the maximum amount of food, press the fast freeze
button 24 hours before placing fresh food in the freezer. The
recommended amount of food to be frozen is indicated on the data
plate on the inside of the appliance. When putting food in to freeze,
the red LED may light up until the ideal temperature is reached.
24 hours after placing the food in to freeze, deactivate the fast
freeze function.

Tips for freezing and storing fresh food.
• Before freezing, wrap and seal fresh food in:
aluminium foil, plastic wrap, cling film, polyethylene containers
with lids, and other containers provided they are suitable for
freezing foods.
• Food (except meat, see below) must be fresh, mature and of
prime quality in order to obtain high quality frozen food.
• Fresh vegetables and fruit should preferably be frozen as soon
as they are picked to maintain the full original nutritional value,
consistency, colour and flavour.
Some meat, especially game, should be hung before it is frozen.
Note:
• Always leave hot food to cool before placing in the freezer.
• Use fully or partially defrosted foods immediately. Do not
refreeze unless the food is cooked after it has thawed. Once
cooked, the thawed food can be refrozen.
Freezing and storing fresh food.
• Place foods to be frozen in the two upper baskets.
• When the freezer is used without the rack, place the ice packs
above the food to be frozen at the front of the top drawer.
Important:
The table alongside shows the recommended maximum
storage time for frozen fresh foods.
Classification of frozen foods
Put the frozen products into the drawers (baskets) and classify
them.
For correct use, follow the storage life indications on the table.
Tip for checking frozen food
Place a low temperature thermometer in the middle of the frozen
food to check the temperature.
Do not place it on the frozen food which would determine the
temperature of the air and not the temperature of the food.

Advice for storing frozen food
When purchasing frozen food products:
• Ensure that the packaging is not damaged (frozen food in
damaged packaging may have deteriorated). If the package is
swollen or has damp patches, it may not have been stored under
optimal conditions and defrosting may have already begun.
• When shopping, leave frozen food purchases until last and
transport the products in a thermally insulated cool bag.
• Once at home, place the frozen foods immediately in the
freezer.
• If food has defrosted even partially, do not re-freeze it.
Consume within 24 hours.
• Avoid, or reduce temperature variations to the minimum.
Respect the best-before date on the package.
• Always observe the storage information on the package.
Removing the baskets
• Pull the baskets out fully, then lift them up slightly in order to
remove.
• Pull the lower basket out fully, then rotate it slightly in order to
remove.
Note on overall capacity
The overall capacity has been calculated without the rack and
without the three upper baskets. For increased storage space, the
freezer compartment can be used without the two upper baskets,
e.g. to freeze poultry or the like.
Making ice cubes
• Fill the ice cube tray 2/3 full and place it in the tray or in a basket.
• Use a spoon handle to detach the tray if it is stuck to the bottom
of the freezer. Do not use sharp or pointed instruments.
• Bend the ice tray slightly to remove the cubes.
• If the tray is made of aluminium, pour water on the bottom of
the tray.
Note:
If the freezer door does not re-open immediately after closing, wait
two or three minutes in order to allow for compensation of the
vacuum created.
Switching off the freezer
• Turn the thermostat anti-clockwise to ●.
The green LED goes out, as well as any other LED that is alight; The
appliance is still connected to the mains power supply.

HOW TO DEFROST AND CLEAN THE
FREEZER
Before any cleaning or maintenance operation, unplug
the appliance from the mains or disconnect the
electrical power supply. Defrost the freezer
compartment once or twice a year, or when the ice on
the walls reaches a thickness of about 3 mm.
If possible, defrost the freezer when it is nearly empty.
• If there are still frozen foods in the freezer, press the fast
freeze button a few hours before defrosting to further chill
the food.
• Remove the food from the freezer, wrap in a newspaper
and group together in a cool place or in a portable cooler.
• Disconnect the freezer from the mains power supply.
• Leave the door open to allow the ice to melt.
• Pull out the defrost water drain and place a container under
the drain.
• Clean the interior of the freezer with a sponge and warm
water and/or neutral detergent.
Do not use abrasive substances.
• Rinse the interior and dry thoroughly.
• Close the feezer and activate the fast freeze function.
Arrange the food and a few hours later deactivate the fast
freeze function.
Prolonged disuse
• Empty the freezer.
• Disconnect the freezer from the mains power supply.
• Defrost and clean.
• Leave the doors open to prevent formation of unpleasant
odours.
Door seal
• From time to time clean the door seal with water and then
dry well.
Do not use oil or grease.
Important
• Ensure that the vent outlets are unobstructed in order to
allow correct air circulation.

INSTALLATION
• Install the freezer away from heat sources. Installation in a hot
environment, direct exposure to the sun or installation near
heat sources (heaters, radiators, cookers) will increase power
consumption and should therefore be avoided.
• If this is not possible, the following minimum distances must
be respected:
• 30 cm from coal or paraffin stoves;
• 3 cm from electric stoves.
• Install the refrigerator in a dry, well-ventilated place.
• Clean the interior (see "How to defrost and clean the
freezer”).
• Fit the accessories.
• Check the door seal is not damaged or deformed, especially
after installation or reversal of door opening.
Electrical connection
• Electrical connections must be made in accordance
with local regulations.
• Voltage and power consumption are indicated on the rating
plate inside the appliance.
• Regulations require that the appliance is earthed.
The manufacturer declines all liability for injury to
persons or animals and for damage to property
resulting from failure to observe the above procedures
and reminders.
• If the plug and socket are not of the same type, have the
socket replaced by a qualified electrician.
• Do not use extension leads or adapters.
Disconnecting the appliance
