Do not under any circumstances attempt to repair the appliance yourself. Repairs carried out by untrained people may result in personal injury or serious malfunction of the appliance. Service of the appliance should be carried out by an authorised service company, and only original spare parts should be used. It is dangerous to alter the appliance specifications, or to change the appliance in any other way. Make sure that the appliance is not placed on top of the mains cable. This appliance includes components that are heated during operation. Consequently, adequate ventilation must always be provided. If ventilation is insufficient defects may occur, resulting in the warming up of the stored frozen food. See under Installation. The inside of the appliance contains pipes through which coolant flows. If these pipes are punctured the appliance may be damaged beyond repair and the frozen food may warm up. Do not damage inside of the appliance with sharp implements. This appliance is heavy. Take care when moving it. If the appliance is fitted with a lock to prevent tampering by children, the key must always be kept safely out of the reach of children, and far away from the appliance. Before disposing of an old appliance, make sure that the lock (if present) no longer works. This is to prevent accidents and avoid the danger of children getting locked inside. IN THE INTERESTS OF THE ENVIRONMENT: When disposing of your old appliance: Check with your local Council or Environmental Health Officer to see if there are facilities in your area for collecting the gas from the appliance for recycling. This will help reduce the amount of CFC gas released into the atmosphere. Help to keep your country tidy - when disposing of an old appliance or a CFC free appliance use an authorised disposal site. 3 POSITION Place the freezer horizontally on a firm surface, resting on all four feet. Use a wooden block or similar object to compensate for any bumps/holes in the surface. The room should be dry and adequately ventilated. If the room temperature is not between 10°C - 32°C, or falls below freezing point, the freezer will not function as it should. Do not place the freezer close to sources of heat, radiators, chimneys, cooker etc., and do not place the freezer in direct sunlight. If the freezer has been handled standing on end it should be allowed to stand in normal position for about 12 hours before switching it on. Please ensure that when the appliance is installed it is easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a breakdown. ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS. Before switching on, make sure that the voltage of your electricity supply is the same as that indicated on the rating plate, located inside the lid. Warning: This appliance must be earthed. For your convenience, this appliance comes complete with either a moulded-on or rewireable 13 amp (BS1363) plug, protected by a 13 amp ASTA approved (BS1362) fuse. In the event of having to change the fuse in the plug supplied, a replacement 13 amp ASTA approved (BS1362) fuse must be used. In the case of a moulded-on plug, the fuse cover MUST be refitted after changing fuse. If the fuse cover is lost or damaged the plug MUST NOT be used until a replacement is obtained. 4 Replacement covers are avaliable from your local electricity shop or nearest customer service centre. The colour of the replacement fuse cover must match the colour insert or emboss on the base of the plug. In the case of a re-wireable plug care must be taken to ensure that the top cover is refitted without causing damage to either the top cover or base. In the event of the plug becoming damaged or cracked, it must be replaced with an equivalent 13 amp, BS1363 approved plug (ref. fig. 1) and rewired using the following procedure: Fig. 1 IMPORTANT The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code: Green and Yellow Earth Blue Neutral Brown Live SWITCHING ON Before switching on, the freezer should be cleaned inside. See under Maintenance. Set the thermostat control knob to a medium setting. Allow the freezer to run for several hours before placing food inside. 5 TEMPERATURE CONTROL CONTROL PANEL The thermostat ensures that the required temperature is maintained in the freezer. Adjust the temperature by turning the control knob with a coin that fits the groove. Turning the thermostat control knob towards. SUPER makes the temperature in the freezer colder, and turning the control knob towards no. 1 makes the temperature warmer. The correct setting can be found by measuring the temperature of the top package in the middle of the freezer. This should not have a temperature warmer than -18°C. The red signal light remains illuminated to indicate that the internal temperature of the appliance is correct for safe storage of frozen food. If the temperature os too high in the appliance the light will go out. The light may go out the following reasons: There is a power failure. The lid has been recently opened. A large quantity of food has been added to the appliance. There is a fault. Thermostat control knob Signal light FREEZING OPENING/CLOSING THE LID The lid is fitted with a tightly closing sealing strip to prevent moisture getting inside the freezer and increasing the amount of frost formed. When the lid is opened the air inside the freezer becomes slightly warmer and expands. As soon as the lid is closed again the air is cooled immediately. This may lead to the creation of a vacuum which makes it hard to open the lid immediately after it has been closed. This is quite normal. Wait a few minutes until the vacuum has disappeared, then open the lid by pulling gently. Never pull the handle violently. 6 It is important that fresh food placed in the freezer is frozen quickly, and that the food already in the freezer is heated as little as possible. If more than 3-4 kg of food is to be frozen: Turn the thermostat button to the coldest setting (SUPER.). The freezer will now run continuously, creating a sufficient reserve of the temperature required. Turn the thermostat button 6-24 hours before placing new food in the freezer, depending on how much food is to be frozen. Place the food in the freezer and leave the thermostat set at SUPER. for about 24 hours more. Then turn the thermostat button back again. The freezer will return to normal storage temperature. If you forget to turn the thermostat control knob back, the freezer will not be damaged but energy will be wasted. PACKAGING AND POSITIONING Food must be cold before freezing (no warmer than room temperature). Food must be packed in airtight and moisture-proof packaging to prevent it from drying out. Place fresh food for freezing close to the cold sides of the freezer, making sure that it is not in contact with the frozen food already in the freezer. Never fill the freezer to more than 5 mm below the top edge. See under Helpful hints. CAPACITY The freezing capacity of the freezer is stated in the data plate (kg/24 hours). Do not exceed the amount stated - if you do, the freezing time will be extended. The data plate is located inside the lid. IMPORTANT If you wish you freeze food several days in a row, please observe a maximum capacity of 2/3 of that on the data plate. The quality if the food is best preserved when it is frozen right throught to the core as quickly as possible. FREEZING CAPACITY 7 BASKETS The baskets are designed for the storage of food which has already been frozen. The basket(s) can be hung on the edge of the casing. Extra baskets are available from Expert Appliance Care. STORAGE Frozen food can be stored anywhere inside the freezer, but should be kept at least 5 mm below the top edge. Never exceed the maximum storage time for purchased frozen food. When you buy frozen food, make sure that it has been stored at the correct temperature. Do not buy products which have wet or damaged packaging. Place purchased products in your freezer as quickly as possible. We recommend using an insulated bag to bring such products home with you. Never place bottles, warm objects, or fizzy drinks in the freezer. FREEZING Only use fresh food of the best quality. Cool hot dishes to room temperature as quickly as possible before placing them in the freezer. Wrap food carefully in freezer foil, or use the special freezer boxes or bags which are on the market. Divide food into small portions before freezing - this ensures that freezing is more rapid, and means that you only need to defrost the amount needed for immediate consumption. Remember that defrosted food must not be re-frozen. However, dishes which have been cooked using defrosted fresh food may be frozen. Mark the freezer packaging with the date of freezing. We recommend keeping a record of the contents of your freezer. If freezing is too slow, the quality of the food being frozen deteriorates. Consequently, do not freeze larger amounts than stated in the freezers data plate. If you wish to freeze food several days in a row, the maximum freezing capacity stated per day 8 is reduced by about one-third. As far as possible, keep the lid closed during freezing. If you know nothing about home freezing, we recommend that you purchase a book containing advice and guidelines. DEFROSTING In general food should not be defrosted at room temperature, since this increases the risk of bacteria growth. It is best to defrost large portions of meat or poultry in the refrigerator, and this also applies to food which is to be consumed as it is (e.g. fruit, butter and sliced meat). Small portions of food can be cooked straight from the freezer. A good number of readyto-cook dishes can also be cooked without defrosting. Always observe the instructions on product packaging. Bread tastes good when defrosted in a moderate oven. Microwave ovens can be used for the rapid defrosting of most frozen foods. Observe the instructions for use of the microwave oven concerned,especially regarding foil dishes. EXTERNAL CLEANING Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water. Do NOT use abrasive products. WHEN NOT IN USE Disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply. Remove all goods from the freezer. Clean the freezer as described above. Leave the lid slightly open. HOW TO CLEAN YOUR FREEZER INSIDE Remove the plug from the mains socket, and remove all loose accessories before cleaning the freezer. The best time to clean your freezer is after defrosting and before the electricity supply is connected again. Use a damp cloth to clean your freezer. Use hot water, and a mild, nonaromatic cleaning agent. After cleaning the freezer, clean the basket/baskets before replacing them. IMPORTANT Never use strong cleaning agents, scouring powder or strongly aromatic cleaning agents to clean your freezer inside, since this will damage the inside and leave a strong smell. 9 SOMETHING NOT WORKING If the appliance is not working correctly, please carry out the following checks before calling out an engineer.
