it is practical to operate the appliance between
ambient temperature limits according to the climate
class that is given in the chart below and can be
found in the data label.
Class of climate
Ambient temperature
+10 ... +32 °C
+16 ... +32 °C
+18 ... + 38 °C
If the ambient temperature goes below the lower
data the temperature of the cooling compartment
can go beyond the prescribed temperature.
If the ambient temperature goes beyond the upper
data this means longer operating time of the
Do not stand the appliance on a sunny place or close
to a radiator or cooker.
If it is unavoidable because of furnishing and the
appliance has to be stood near a cooker take these
minimum distances into consideration:
In case of gas or electric cooker 3 cm must be
left, when it is less put a 0,5 - 1 cm non-flam
insulation between the two appliances.
In case of oil or coal-fired stove the distance must
be 30 cm since they give off more heat.
The refrigerator is designed to operate when it is
totally pushed to the wall.
When placing the refrigerator keep minimal
distances recommended in figure.
A : placing it under a wall-cupboard
B : placing it freely
Putting it into use
Put the plug into the mains socket. Turn the
thermostatic control knob according to the figure.
This time the red lamp starts giving light, the
compressor starts and cooling begins shortly.
When the red light goes out the temperature is
sufficient and the appliance is suitable for storing
frozen and deep-frozen foods.
Switch and indicator unit
For the usage of the switching and indicator unit see
chapters "Putting it into use", "Controlling the
temperature" and "Freezing".
Components of the appliance are as follows:
A) Green indicator lamp
This lamp lights when the appliance is under
power, i.e. the mains plug is in the mains socket.
B) Red indicator lamp
It lights up depending on the temperature inside
the appliance.
It lights for a short time when starting the
appliance, placing fresh food into it and when the
temperature control knob has been turned in
direction to lower temperatures.
It lights permanently when the temperature inside
the appliance is too high (overloaded with warm
food, door stayed open or the door seal does not
close properly) or possibly the appliance was
broken down.
C) Yellow indicator lamp and freezer switch
In the switched-on state of the switch (pops up
and lights by pressing) the compressor operates
continuously thus providing for the coldest
interior temperature - achievable by the freezer needed for freezing.
D) Temperature control knob
This knob is provided for setting and changing
the temperature inside the appliance.
Controlling the temperature
The thermostatic controller interrupts the operation
of the appliance automatically for more or less time
depending on the setting then restarts it assuring the
required temperature.
Setting the thermostat knob can be done practically
with a coin. Turning the control knob clockwise
cooling becomes more and more intensive.
In the appliance -18 °C or lower temperature can be
reached if the thermostat knob is set according to the
The thermostat can be switched off („0” position),
which means breaking the circuit of the compressor
i.e. stopping cooling.
The temperature coming about in the freezer is
effected by not only the position of the thermostatic
control and the ambient temperature, but frequency
of door openings and the quantity of food put into it,
In maximum position of the thermostat - in
case of increased demand e.g. during
heatwaves - the compressor may operate
continually. This does not cause damages to the
Freezing different products should always be done in
the freezing compartment after proper preparation.
Switch on the freezer switch (pops up and lights by
pressing) 4 hours before freezing food of small
quantities and about 24 hours before freezing
products of larger quantities. This time the
compressor operates continuously to reach the
temperature necessary for freezing.
Place in the foods to be frozen and let the appliance
operate for about 24 hours as written above.
Then push the fast freezer switch again (the yellow
light will go out and the switch turns to its original
The freezing tray is suitable for freezing smaller fruits
(raspberry, strawberry, currant, etc.). Fruits should be
put on the tray in thin layers without packaging. After
freezing they can be packed and sorted out then
placed into the storing compartments.
It is practical to replace frozen products into the
storing compartments (cages) after freezing has
finished so that to make room in the freezing
compartment for another freezing.
Intermediate freezing does not deteriorate foods
already stored.
How to make ice cubes
To make ice cubes fill the enclosed ice cube tray with
water and put it to the frozen food compartment.
Wetting the bottom of the tray and setting
thermostatic control knob to maximum stage can
shorten preparing time. After finishing do not forget
to reset the thermostatic control to the suitable stage.
Ready ice cubes can be taken out of the tray under
running water then twist or hit it.
Some useful information and
After opening and closing the door of freezer
vacuum will rise inside the appliance because of
the low temperature. So wait 2-3 minutes after
closing the door - if you want to open it again while inner pressure equalises.
Take care of operating the freezer at a position of
thermostatic control so that the inside
temperature can never go beyond -18 °C, since
temperature higher than this can deteriorate
frozen foods.
It is practical to make sure of faultless operation
of the appliance daily so as to notice possible
failure in time and prevent deterioration of frozen
Put warm foods into the appliance only when
they are at room temperature.
The condenser must be kept clean.
The appliance and environment

damage the ozone layer, in either its refrigerant
circuit or insulation materials. The appliance shall not
be discarded together with the urban refuse and
rubbish. Avoid damaging the cooling unit, especially
at the rear near the heat exchanger. Information on
your local disposal sites may be obtained from your
municipal authorities.

Hints and ideas
In this chapter practical hints and ideas are given
about how to use the appliance to reach maximum
energy saving and there is environmental information
about the appliance as well.
How to save energy
Avoid putting the appliance in a sunny place and
near anything that gives off heat.
Be sure that the condenser and the compressor
are well ventilated. Do not cover the sections
where ventilation is.
Wrap products in tightly closing dishes or cling
film to avoid building up unnecessary frost.
Avoid products put in the freezer compartment to
touch foods already frozen.
Do not leave the door open longer than
necessary and avoid unnecessary openings.
The tray in figure is not a piece of accessories to the
When ice coating is so thick that it can not be
removed with the frost scraper defrosting is
necessary. Its frequency depends on usage.
How to defrost it:
Break the circuit of the appliance.
Take the frozen foods out of the appliance and put
them into a basket lined with paper or cloth. Store
them in a possibly cool place or replace them into a
frozen or fresh food compartment of a refrigerator.
Leave the door open.
Sweep off the melting water occasionally with a cloth
or sponge in direction of sides which gathers in the
outlet channel practically formed in the bottom of the
appliance and can be removed as follows:
Put an tray high enough in front of the appliance. Pull
out defrost water outlet placed in the middle of the
bottom of the appliance carefully in the direction of
the arrow. Defrost water will flow into the tray through
the outlet.
Clean the door gasket with clean water.
After cleaning apply voltage to the appliance.
It is recommended to remove the dust and dirt
collected on the back of the appliance and the
condenser once or twice a year.
When the refrigerator is not in use
In case the appliance will not be used for a long time
follow these steps:
Remove plug from the mains socket.
Remove foods from the refrigerator.
Defrost and clean it as written before.
Leave the door open to avoid a build up of air inside.
Trouble shooting
Defrosting process can be made quicker by placing
a pot or dish filled with warm water to the cooling
plate formed as a shelf.
After defrosting wipe the surfaces and push defrost
water outlet back.
Apply voltage to the appliance.
After the red light has gone out put the foods back.
Regular cleaning
It is practical to clean the inside of the freezer and
defrost it at a time.
Household cleaner or soap must not be used.
After breaking the circuit wash the appliance using
lukewarm water and wipe it.
During operation of the appliance some smaller but
annoying trouble can often occur, which does not
require calling a technician out. In the following chart
information is given about them to avoid
unnecessary charges on service.
We draw your attention that operation of appliance
goes with certain sounds (compressor- and
circulating sound). This is not trouble, but means
normal operation.
We draw it to your attention again that the
appliance operates discontinuously, so the
stopping of compressor does not mean being nocurrent. That is why you must not touch the electrical
parts of the appliance before removing it from the
mains socket.
Possible cause
The appliance does not cool Thermostatic control is set too low.
Before freezing the appliance was not precooled
Large-sized food was put in.
Too many foods to be frozen were put in.
Warm foods were put in.
Door is not shut properly.
The appliance cools too hard The thermostatic control is set too high.
The appliance does not cool Plug is not connected to the mains socket
at all
There is no voltage in the mains socket.
