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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 freezer’s 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.
