mean any fault in the appliance.
After a power failure the set temperature remains stored.
2.4 Red ALARM Indicator
Under normal operating conditions, the
internal temperature of the freezer will
ensure the long-term conservation of the
stored food.
When such temperature rises above a
certain level (-12 °C, for example due to
an earlier power failure), the appliance
will trigger an acoustic and light alarm.

5. Move frozen food from the freezing
compartments into the other compartments (storing compartments) to
make room for another freezing.
If the SUPER Quick Freeze Button is accidentally left on, the
freezer will not be damaged, but
energy will be wasted and it will
be automatically switched off 52
hours later. The SUPER Indicator
Light will also go out.
3.1 Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first
time, wash the interior and all internal
accessories with lukewarm water and
some neutral soap so as to remove the
typical smell of a brand-new product,
then dry thoroughly.
Do not use detergents or abrasive powders, as these will damage the finish.
4.1 Freezing fresh food
The freezer compartments (indicated
with graphics) are suitable for freezing
fresh food and storing frozen and deepfrozen food for a long time.
To freeze fresh food activate the SUPER
Quick Freeze function.
The maximum amount of food that can
be frozen in 24 hours is specified on the
rating plate, a label located on the inside of the appliance.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours: during this period do not add other food to
be frozen.
4.2 Storage of frozen food
When first starting-up or after a period
out of use, before putting the products
in the compartment let the appliance run
at least 2 hours on the higher settings.
In the event of accidental defrosting, for example due to a
power failure, if the power has
been off for longer than the value shown in the technical characteristics chart under "rising
time", the defrosted food must
be consumed quickly or cooked
immediately and then re-frozen
(after cooling).
4.3 Thawing
Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed at room temperature.
Small pieces may even be cooked still
frozen, directly from the freezer: in this
case, cooking will take longer.
5.1 Normal Operating Sounds
• You may hear a faint gurgling and a
bubbling sound when the refrigerant
is pumped through the coils or tubing.
This is correct.
• When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being pumped around and
you will hear a whirring sound and a
pulsating noise from the compressor.
This is correct.
• The thermic dilatation might cause a
sudden cracking noise. It is natural,
not dangerous physical phenomenon.
This is correct.
• When the compressor switches on or
switches off, you will hear a faint
"click" of the temperature regulator.
This is correct.
5.2 Hints for freezing
To help you make the most of the freezing process, here are some important
• the maximum quantity of food which
can be frozen in 24 hrs. is shown on
the rating plate;
• the freezing process takes 24 hours.
No further food to be frozen should
be added during this period;
• only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly cleaned, foodstuffs;
• prepare food in small portions to enable it to be rapidly and completely frozen and to make it possible subsequently to thaw only the quantity required;
• wrap up the food in aluminium foil or
polythene and make sure that the
packages are airtight;
• do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to
touch food which is already frozen,
thus avoiding a rise in temperature of
the latter;
• lean foods store better and longer
than fatty ones; salt reduces the storage life of food;
• water ices, if consumed immediately
after removal from the freezer compartment, can possibly cause the skin
to be freeze burnt;
• it is advisable to show the freezing in
date on each individual pack to enable
you to keep tab of the storage time.
5.3 Hints for storage of frozen
To obtain the best performance from
this appliance, you should:
• make sure that the commercially frozen foodstuffs were adequately stored
by the retailer;
• be sure that frozen foodstuffs are
transferred from the foodstore to the
freezer in the shortest possible time;
• not open the door frequently or leave
it open longer than absolutely necessary;
• once defrosted, food deteriorates rapidly and cannot be refrozen;
• do not exceed the storage period indicated by the food manufacturer.
Unplug the appliance before carrying out any maintenance operation.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling unit; maintenance and recharging must
therefore only be carried out by
authorized technicians.
6.1 Periodic cleaning
The equipment has to be cleaned regularly:
• clean the inside and accessories with
lukewarm water and some neutral
• regularly check the door seals and
wipe clean to ensure they are clean
and free from debris.
• rinse and dry thoroughly.
Do not pull, move or damage
any pipes and/or cables inside
the cabinet.
Never use detergents, abrasive
powders, highly perfumed cleaning products or wax polishes to
clean the interior as this will damage the surface and leave a
strong odour.
Clean the condenser (black grill) and the
compressor at the back of the appliance
with a brush. This operation will improve
the performance of the appliance and
save electricity consumption.
Take care of not to damage the
cooling system.
Many proprietary kitchen surface cleaners contain chemicals that can attack/
damage the plastics used in this appliance. For this reason it is recommended
that the outer casing of this appliance is
only cleaned with warm water with a little
washing-up liquid added.
After cleaning, reconnect the equipment
to the mains supply.
6.2 Defrosting of the freezer
The freezer compartment of this model,
on the other hand, is a "no frost" type.
This means that there is no buildup of
frost when it is in operation, neither on
the internal walls nor on the foods.
The absence of frost is due to the continuous circulation of cold air inside the
compartment, driven by an automatically
controlled fan.
6.3 No-Frost technology
In order to facilitate the removal of the
ice layer, the evaporator is assisted by
electric heating during the defrosting
procedure. The ventilator is in OFF position. The defrost water will drip in the
tray placed at the compressor and will
evaporate. In the course of the defrosting procedure (approx. 30 minutes) the
evaporator becomes warm but it has no
influence on the internal temperature.
The foods should be kept well-packed in
order to avoid any moisture loss as a result of air circulation.
Do not obstruct the vent holes.
It is recommended to put all foods in the
baskets in the freezer compartment.
6.4 Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for
long periods, take the following precautions:
1. disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
2. remove all food
3. clean the appliance and all accessories
4. leave the lid open to prevent unpleasant smells.
If the cabinet will be kept on, ask
somebody to check it once in a
while to prevent the food inside
from spoiling in case of a power
Before troubleshooting, disconnect the mains plug from the
mains socket.
