Make sure that the power plug is not squashed or damaged by the back of the fridge/freezer.
- A damaged power plug may overheat and cause a fire.
Do not place heavy articles or the fridge/freezer itself on the power cord.
- There is a risk of a short circuit and fire.
Do not remove the power cord by pulling on its lead, particularly when the fridge/freezer is being pulled out of its niche.
- Damage to the cord may cause a short-circuit, fire and/or electric shock.
- If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a certified service agent or qualified service personnel.
If the power plug socket is loose, do not insert the power plug.
- There is a risk of electric shock or fire.

Place the freezer horizontally on a firm surface, resting on all four plastic 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. Temperatures of the external environment have an impact
on the energy consumption of the device. Therefore:
- do not put the device to a place exposed to sunshine ore besides a radiator or oven,
- put it to a place where the temperature of the environment corresponds to the climatic classification for which the device was designed.
Climatic classification Ambient temperature limits
from +10°C to +32°C
from +16°C to +32°C
from +18°C to +38°C
from +18°C to +43°C
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.
Before switching on, the freezer should be cleaned inside. See under “Maintenance”. Set the thermostat button in
middle position. Allow the freezer to run for several hours before placing food inside.
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.
this appliance complies with the following EC Directives:
- 73/23/EEC of 19. 02. 1973 - Low-Voltage Directive
- 89/336/EEC of 03. 05. 1989 (including Amendment Directive 92/31/EEC - EMC Directive.
Some of the models are not available in all countries.
Testing has been carried out in accordance with ISO 5155 regarding the determination of freezer capacity, energy consumption and
Information for test institute: A plan of the positioning of test packages may be obtained directly from the manufacturer.
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.
The thermostat ensures that the required temperature is maintained in the freezer. Turning the thermostat button towards no. 7 makes the temperature in the freezer colder, and turning the button 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 higher than –18°C.
The green light is illuminated as long as the freezer is connected. The yellow light is illuminated when the “Super” button is depressed. See under “Freezing”. The red light is illuminated
when the temperature in the freezer is higher than the thermostat setting (alarm).
The red alarm light can be due to: Insertion of a large amount of fresh food. The red alarm light
will go out after a while. Opening the lid too long. The red alarm light will go out after a while.
A defect in the system. See under “If something does not work”.

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 The freezing capacity stated can be utilised to the full occasionally to
freeze large amounts of fresh food. However, if the freezer is filled with large amounts
of food for freezing every day, the capacity stated is reduced by about one-third.
The lock works as shown in the drawings. Remember to
keep the key out of the reach of children.
The baskets are designed for the storage of food which has already been frozen. The handles can
be placed in two positions, as shown in the drawings.The baskets can either be placed inside the
freezer or hung on the edge of the casing.
The formation of frost on the inside of freezers cannot be avoided. Frost is formed when moisture
contained in the air comes into contact with the cold surfaces of the freezer. Consequently, the lid
should only be opened when necessary, and it should never be left open. A thin layer of ice or frost
does not affect the function of the freezer adversely, and can be removed carefully using the
scraper provided.
IMPORTANT Never use a knife or any other sharp implement to remove frost.
When the frost or ice layer is 10-15 mm thick, the freezer should be defrosted. We suggest that you
defrost your freezer when there is little or no food inside. Switch off the current. Remove the contents of the freezer, wrap them in newspapers, and leave them in a cold place. The speed of
defrosting can be increased by placing one or more bowls of hot (not boiling) water inside the freezer and closing the lid. Open the lid after a while, and remove the layer of ice carefully. The defrost water can be collected in a bowl as
shown in the drawing. Do not try to speed up defrosting by using anything other than hot water, since this may damage the freezer.
After defrosting, clean the inside of the freezer.
IMPORTANT Remember to replace the plug in the drip water drain.
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, non-aromatic 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.
Disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply. Remove all goods from the freezer. Clean the freezer as described above.
Leave the lid slightly open.
Before changing the bulb, isolate the appliance from the electricity supply. Exert pressure to
remove the light glass as shown in the drawing. Unscrew the bulb, and replace it with a new
bulb (max. 15W). Then re-connect the electricity supply. Extra bulbs are available from your
local Electrolux Service Centre.

Incorrect procedure may cause personal injury or lead to additional defects. It is quite normal for the freezer to seem warm
on the outside occasionally, owing to the heat generated by the freezing process. This heat also helps to prevent the formation of moisture on the outside of the appliance which could cause rust. If the freezer has been switched off briefly, the
compressor may not start immediately when the current is re-connected. This is quite normal.
