to be used specifically for the storage of edible food-
stuffs only.
a Frozen food must not be re-frozen once it has been
thawed out.
1 Manufacturers” storage recommendations should
be strictly adhered to. Refer to relevant instructions.
2 During normal operation, the condenser and
compressor at the back of the appliance heat up
considerably. For safety reasons, minimum ventila-
tion must be as shown in the relevant Figure.
Attention: keep ventilation openings clear of
obstruction.
= Before any cleaning or maintenance work is carried
out, be sure to switch off and unplug the appliance.
2 |f the appliance is transported horizontally, it is
possible that the oil contained in the compressor
flows in the refrigerant circuit. It is advisable to wait
at least two hours before connecting the appliance
to altow the oil to flow back in the compressor.
= The inner lining of the appliance consists of chan-
nels through which the refrigerant passes. If these
should be punctured this would damage the appli-
ance beyond repair and cause food loss. DO NOT
USE SHARP INSTRUMENTS to scrape off frost or
ice. Frost may be removed by using the scraper
provided. Under no circumstances should solid ice
be forced off the liner, Solid ice should be allowed
to thaw when defrosting the appliance. See defrost
instructions.
20
Do not use a mechanical device or any artificial
means to speed up the thawing process other than
those recommended by the manufacturer.
Do not place carbonated or fizzy drinks in the
freezer as it creates pressure on the container,
which may cause it to explode, resulting in damage
to the appliance.
This appliance is heavy. Care should be taken when
moving it.
Ice lollies can cause frost burns if consumed
straight from the appliance.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling
unit; maintenance and recharging must therefore
only be carried out by authorized technicians.
Never use metal objects for cieaning your appliance
as it may get damaged.
Under no circumstances should you attempt to
repair the appliance yourself. Repairs carried out by
inexperienced persons may cause injury or more
serious malfunctioning. Refer to your local Service
Centre, and always insist on genuine spare parts.

For operation with different voltages, a suitably sized
auto-transformer must be used.
The appliance must be earthed.
The power supply cable plug is provided with a con-
tact for this purpose.
If the domestic power supply socket is not earthed,
connect the appliance to a separate earth in compli-
ance with current regulations, consulting a specialist
technician.
The Manufacturer declines all responsibility if the
above safety precautions are not observed.

Starting-up and Temperature Regulation
Insert the plug into the wall socket, the pilot light «E»
will light up to show that the appliance is working.
Turn knob «A» beyond the «@» position.
To safely store frozen and deep-frozen foods, the in-
ner temperature of the freezer must be at least -18%C
or colder.
Therefore, we suggest you turn the knob «A» to a me-
dium setting.
The temperature inside the freezer is automatically ad-
justed to ensure safe storage of the food.
However if the appliance works in unfavourable room
conditions such as poor ventilation, high ambient
temperature and frequent door openings, it might be
necessary to select a more suitable setting.
Turn knob «A» towards "max" to obtain lower tempera-
tures and, conversely, towards "min" if a less cold
temperature is required.
Freezer operation can be halted by turning knob «A»
to position «@».
Internal thermometer
This indicates the internal temperature of the freezer. It
may indicate a temperature above -18°C when large
quantities of food are placed inside for freezing or
when the door is left open for a long time.
Blue = -18°C + -30°C
Beige = above —18°C 17°C or —10°C for example)
Red = alarm (temperature above -9°С)

Quick freezing
Move switch (B) to the SUPER position. Pilot light (C)
comes on.
Warning light «D»
This light warns when the temperature inside the
freezer compartment has increased so much as to
jeopardize the preservation of food in the compart-
ment,
When the appliance is switched on for the first time or
when food is placed in the compartment for freezing,
this light remains on until the temperature has reached
the level required for correct storage.
23
Temperature alarm device
Your freezer is fitted with an acoustic alarm designed
to signal when the temperature inside the freezer has
risen to a level which can no longer guarantee correct
storage of food. The signal sounds until the red tem-
perature warning light goes out or until the fast freeze
switch (B) is activated. The fast freeze switch can be
deactivated as soon as the red warning light goes out.
Freezing of fresh foods
To quick-freeze foods when the appliance has not
been in use, switch on the freezer and let it run on the
quick-freeze setting for at least three hours before
putting the food to be frozen in the compartment.
If instead the appliance is already in operation, it
should run on the quick-freeze setting for at least 24
hours before the foods are put in the freezer. Once the
foods have been placed in the freezer, the freezing op-
eration can be considered to be complete 24 hours
later.
Once freezing is complete, the freezer should be reset
for normal storage use.
Place food to be frozen in the appliance's two top
compartments; if freezing only a small amount of
food, always use the top compartment.
The maximum amount of food which is freezable in 24
hours is indicated on the rating plate. This is to be
found on the bottom left-hand side.
You should never freeze all at once a greater quan-
tity of foods than the maximum indicated on the
appliance’s rating plate.
To help you get the best out of the freezing process,
here are a few hints:
Freeze only good-quality, fresh and well-cleaned
foods.
Split them into small portions to speed up freezing
and avoid having to thaw more food than you require.
It is in fact important to remember that once the foods
have thawed out, they deteriorate fast.
Another point to remember is that lean foods keep
better and longer than fatty foods. Salt too reduces
storage time.
Wrap the foods in foil or polythene film, ensuring that
the wrapping adheres closely to the food and is well
sealed.
In this way, by avoiding contact with air, the colour fla-
vour and nutritional value of the foods remain intact.
During the freezing process, do not add further foods
for freezing and do not open the freezer door.
The foods for freezing should not be placed in contact
with already frozen foods, but put in the special freez-
ing compartment. This will stop the temperature of al-
ready frozen foods from rising.
Never put fizzy drinks in the freezer as they might well
burst.
24
In addition, never put hot foods or liquids in the freez-
er compartment and take care not to fill recipients up
to the brim if they are covered with a lid.
It is a good idea to mark the packs with the date on
which freezing started so that you can keep a check
on storage periods.
A special card is located in the holder on the inner
door of the freezer compartment, where pictures of
different types of food are shown followed by a figure.
These figures indicate the maximum storage time, in
months, for each type of food.
Cold pack accumulator
The appliance is equipped with a cold pack accumu-
lator which increases the storage time in the event of a
power cut or electrical failure. This pack must be
placed in the top compartment, on top of the food.
Storage of commercially frozen food
To get the best out of your freezer, in the case of stor-
age of commercially frozen food you should ensure
that:
the products have been correctly stored by the retail-
er;
that there is only a very short time between when you
purchase the products and when you put them in the
freezer;
you do not store products for longer than the time
specified by the food manufacturer.
In addition, if the freezer has been out of use for some
time, before putting the products in the compartment
let the freezer run for at least two hours on the quick-
freeze (SUPER) setting. After this, reset the freezer for
normal storage use.
Avoid opening the door too frequently and when you
do open it, leave it open only for as long as is strictly
necessary.
A word of warning about ice lollies: they should not be
eaten straight out of the freezer as this might cause
cold burns.
In the first compartment, products must only be
stacked up to the mark on the cell so as to ensure that
air circulation is not obstructed.
In order to make use of the appliance's full volume, re-
move the two centre drawers marked “x” (see. figure),
so creating more space inside the freezer.
FR172
To remove the drawers, proceed as follows:
pull the drawer out until it comes to a stop, then tilt it
upwards (see figure).

PROO
Thawing
Before being used, deep-frozen and frozen food can
be thawed out either in the refrigerator or at room
temperature, depending on the time available for this
operation.
Small pieces of food, such as hamburgers, cutlets
chips, and fish fingers, for example, can be cooked
straight out of the freezer, without any intermediate
thawing operation.
Clearly, cooking time will be marginally longer than in
the case of thawed food.
Ice-cube production
This appliance is equipped with trays for the produc-
tion of ice-cubes.
Fill these trays with water to 3/4 of their height, then
put them in the freezer compartment.
The ice-cubes may be shaken out from the trays by
simply twisting; do not use metallic instruments to re-
move the trays from the freezer.
Defrosting
Frost should be removed with the special plastic
scraper provided, whenever the thickness exceeds 4
mm. During this operation it is not necessary to cut-off
the power or to remove the food from the freezer.
Do not use a mechanical device or any artificial means
to speed up the thawing process other than those rec-
ommended by the manufacturer.
If a thick layer of ice is formed it will be necessary to
carry out complete defrosting as following:
set the knob «A» to position «@» or unplug the appli-
ance from the mains socket;
wrap frozen food in several layers of newspaper and
place the food packages in a cool place;
leave the door open and insert the plastic scraper in
the special location to act as an extension channel;
pull out the drawer to collect the defrost water (see
Fig.).
FROM
When defrosting is completed dry the interior thor-
oughly.
Keep the scraper for future use.
Turn the thermostat knob «A» to the desired position
or replace the plug in the socket. After letting the ap-
pliance to run for two or three hours on the quick-
freeze setting, it is ready again for storing frozen food.

MAINTENANCE
Unplug the appliance before carrying out any
maintenance operation.
Warning
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling
unit; maintenance and recharging must therefore only
be carried out by authorized technicians.
Periodical cleaning
Never use metal objects for cleaning your appliance
as it may get damaged.
Wash the interior of the appliance with lukewarm wa-
ter and sodium bicarbonate.
Clean cabinet outer surfaces with a silicone-wax
spray.
The condenser and compressor should be cleaned
using a brush or a vacuum cleaner. This latter opera-
tion will maintain the appliance’s excellent standards
of performance and save energy.
SOMETHING NOT WORKING
Idle periods
During periods when the appliance is not used, you
should take the following precautions:
remove the plug from the wall socket;
remove all food from the appliance;
defrost and clean the interior and all accessories;
leave the door slightly open, thus letting air circulate
and preventing the formation of mould and unpleasant
smells.
If the appliance is not functioning properly check that:
the plug is firmly in the wall socket and the mains
power switch is on;
there is no power failure; the control knob is in the
right position.
26
Furthermore:
If the appliance seems too noisy check that the sides
are not touching furniture that can transmit or amplify
a noise or a vibration. Also, check that the piping of
the refrigerant system does not vibrate.
If your appliance is still not working properly after
making the above checks, contact your local dealer or
the nearest service center.
To obtain fast service, it is essential that when you
apply for it you specify the model and serial
number of your appliance which can be found in-
side the appliance at the bottom on the left hand
side.
