General instructions
You have just purchased a home freezer which has
been produced according to the standards appli-
cable to these appliances. During manufacture, the
necessary measures have been taken as required by
the Appliance Safety Act, the Accident Prevention
Regulations for Refrigerating Installations (VBG 20),
and the Requirements of the Association of German
Electrical Engineers (VDE).
The refrigeration circuit has been checked for leak-
age.
This appliance meets the radio interference suppres-
sion requirements of EC Directive 82/439 EC and the
standards concerning the effects of electrical appii-
ances on power systems EN 60 555 Parts 1-3/DIN
VDE 0838 Parts 1-3, June 1987.
Before starting up, we recommend you to read the
following Instructions for Use, since only by doing so
can you benefit from all the advantages offered by
your chest freezer.
These Instructions for Use are intended for several
comparable models with different equipment. Please
note only the instructions which refer to your chest
freezer version.
Industrial use
Should you use your home freezer for industrial pur-
poses, please note the legal requirements valid in
your area.
Choice of location
if possible, your freezer should be installed in a dry,
well-ventilated room. Please make sure that your
chest freezer or its electrical components are not ex-
posed to any spraying or splashing water.
The refrigerating unit needs a good supply of air and
proper ventilation in order to function perfectly.
Please make sure that the external walls of the appli-
ance are not covered over or blocked.
Ambient temperature has an effect on the power
consumption of the refrigerating system. The appli-
ance should therefore:
— not stand in the direct sunshine, next to a radiator,
or close to the oven
— stand in a position where the ambient temperature
corresponds with the climate category for which
the appliance was designed.
You will find data on this on the rating plate, which is
in the interior of the appliance. It will consist of one of
the following:
Climate Ambient temperature
category from ... to
SN —+10t0+32%
№ + 16 10 + 32 °С
ST + 18 to + 38°C
T + 18 to + 43°C
The appliance should be installed horizontally on a
firm surface. Correct any floor irregularities with suit-
able packing pieces.
When your chest freezer is in use, you will find that
the outside is warm to touch. This is caused by the
special cooling system, integrated cooling circuit
(shell-and-tube condenser) whose heat prevents for-
mation of condensation and thereby rust on the ex-
ternal housing.
Ensure that all surfaces (sides) of your chest freezer
receive sufficient air so that the heat can be dissipat-
ed.
Thermometer
On some models there is a thermometer fitted into
the dividing wall between the large and the small
freezer space.
It shows the temperature of the items at the same
level as the upper filling mark. If your freezer is not
full, please remove the thermometer from its holder
and place it on the frozen food.
You can remove the thermometer by withdrawing it
laterally from its holder (Fig. 1).
If the lid is open for long periods, the temperature in-
dication will be affected by room air.
Ensure that the storage temperature is at least
-18 °C.
Temperature audible alarm
If your deep-freeze is fitted with an audible tempera-
ture warning (Fig. 2/arrow), you will hear this at the
same time as you see the red temperature-control
light come on. This will warn you that the internal
temperature is too high.
The acoustic warning will sound until the red tem-
perature warning light goes out or until it is cancelled
by operating the fast freeze switch (amber light).
Before starting up
In common with all new appliances, your chest freez-
er will emit a specific odour when new.
Сев)
it is advisable to clean the interior of the freezer and
all accessories before use (see also “Defrosting and
cleaning”).
Fitting of basket handles
Insert handles as shown in Fig. 3 if the basket is to
be suspended on the plastic cover frame on the
upper edge of your chest freezer.
If baskets are to be placed in the chest freezer and
stacked above each other, the handles are to be
folded inwards as shown in Fig. 4.
The handles then serve as a support for the basket
to be placed on top.
Voltage and current
Please ensure that the voltage and current indicated
on the rating plate agrees with the voltage of your
electricity supply.
220/240 volts — (i.e. 220/240 V a. c.).
The rating plate is located on the inside of the freezer
lid.
Electrical connection
WARNING - THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
EARTHED
if your appliance has been equipped with a mains
lead with a moulded-on type plug, you must comply
with the following regulations: The plug moulded on
to the cord incorporates a fuse. For replacement,
use a 13 amp BS 1362 fuse. Only ASTA approved or
certified fuses should be used. The fuse cover/
carrier must be replaced in the event of changing the
fuse. The plug must not be used if the fuse cover/
carrier is lost. A replacement cover/carrier must be
obtained from an electrical goods retailer. if the
socket outlets in your home are not suitable for the
plug fitted to the appliance, then the plug must be cut
off and an appropriate one fitted. When fitting the
plug please note the following points:
important
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accor-
dance with the following code:
Green and Yeliow Earth
Blue Neutral
Brown Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
appliance may not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying the terminals in your plug, pro-
ceed as follows:
1. The wire which is coloured creen and yellow
must be connected to the earth terminal in your
plug, which is marked with the letter E or by the
earth symbol + or coloured green, or green and
yellow.
2. The wire which is coloured brown must be con-
nected to the live terminal which is marked with
the letter L or coloured red.
3. The wire which is coloured blue must be connect-
ed to the neutral terminal which is marked with
the letter N or coloured black.
When wiring the plug, ensure that ali strands of wire
are securely retained in each terminal. Do not forget
to tighten the mains lead clamp on the piug.
Warning! A cut off plug inserted into a 13 amp
socket is a serious safety (shock) hazard. Ensure
that the cut off plug is disposed of safely.
Voltage 220/240 V AC
Fuse rating 13 amps
See rating plate for further information.
Earthing contact socket
The earthing contact socket outlet necessary for
connection of the freezer to the electricity supply
should be positioned so that it is possible to pull out
the appliance piug.

Starting up
Insert the mains plug of your chest freezer into a
socket fitted as prescribed with a protective contact
(Schuko socket). Y our appliance is then operational.
Fig. 10
The green mains operating lamp (3) and red tem-
perature monitoring lamp (5) show, and the tem-
perature acoustic warning (6) sounds.
The green mains operating lamp indicates operation
and must continuously show.
The red temperature monitoring lamp tells you that
the storage temperature has not yet been attained.
If you additionally operate the fast freeze switch
(4), the amber pilot lamp in the switch (4) shows,
and the refrigerating unit operates in continuous
mode.
When the fast freeze switch is pressed, the tempera-
ture acoustic warning (warning tone) immediately
ceases.
if you switch off the fast freeze switch (4) when the
red temperature monitoring lamp (5) has gone out,
the amber lamp goes out.
The red temperature monitoring lamp (5) and tem-
perature acoustic warning (6) give an alarm if:
- the storage temperature has not yet been reached
(starting up)
~ the minimum storage temperature is no longer be-
ing maintained (fault)
— if large quantities of fresh food have been placed
inside
~ the chest lid has been open for too long.
The red temperature warning light (5) and tem-
perature audible alarm (6) give no warning:
— if the power supply is interrupted;
— if the thermostat is defective.
Important: Check regularly on the red temperature
monitoring lamp and on a thermometer placed inside
whether the storage temperature is being main-
tained.
Temperature regulation
The temperature regulator (thermostat) is located
beside the pilot lights and controls on the front of
your freezer. It can be used for continuous setting of
the most economical storage temperature for your
frozen food (figure 5). It has settings from 1 to 7:
Setting “1” means: highest temperature =
warmest setting;
Setting “7” means: lowest temperature =
coldest setting.
Since the ambient temperature, type and quantity of
stored frozen food, and frequency and duration of lid
opening are decisive for the optimum storage condi-
tions of -18 °C or colder, you should check the inter-
nal temperature on a thermometer.
Set the temperature regulator so that the indicated
temperature is -18 °C.
Important: If you operate the fast freeze switch or
adjust the temperature regulator, it may happen that
the refrigerating unit of your chest freezer starts, not
immediately, but with some delay. In this case, your
appliance has no fault.
Energy-saving during
half- or part-loading
(not on all models)
When your chest freezer is half- or even less loaded,
you can save energy if you store your frozen food in
the lower area — not higher than the green stacking
mark on the separating wall (Fig. 6).
Turn the temperature controller in the green storage
area (Fig. 7) and monitor the storage temperature
with a thermometer placed on the frozen food. The
minimum storage temperature should be -18 °C.
When storing frozen food above the green stacking
mark, please never forget to reset the temperature
controller to a colder setting; settings 3 to 7.
Maximum loading/
filling mark
Please note that you should store frozen food only
as far as the lower edge of the plastic cover frame
(figure 8/arrow).
Freezing fresh food
Your freezer can be used for storage of frozen food
and for freezing of fresh food.
Before filling the freezer for the first time with frozen
food (deep-frozen food), the optimum storage tem-
perature of -18 °C must have been attained at the
filling mark.
If you intend to freeze food yourself, switch on the
fast freeze button 4 to 24 hours beforehand (accord-
ing to quantity).
Freeze only sound fresh food.
Please make sure that as far as possible airtight
packaged tood has good contact with the side re-
frigerating panels during freezing. In this manner,
the food will freeze right through more quickly.
After around 24 hours (or less for smaller quantity),
the fast freeze switch can be switched off.
If you intend to freeze more food, retain the fast
freeze setting.
Only place the food in the baskets after freezing is
completed!
It is particularly important to keep the freshly in-
serted food separate from the already frozen
food.
8
For this reason, we recommend using the small
freezing compartment on the internal right-hand side
for freezing purposes. Only when freezing larger
quantities (e. g. a quantity corresponding to the daily
freezing capacity) must you freeze part of the food
having proper contact with the side walls in the large
freezing compartment.
The daily freezing capacity of your chest freezer is
shown on the rating plate. This quantity should not
be exceeded. If freezing is carried out every day, it is
advisable to reduce this maximum figure to obtain
improved frozen food quality. That is to say, if you
want to carry out freezing on several consecutive
days, only utilize % to % of the maximum capacity.
Hint for test centres
Filling plans for determination of freezing capacity
and warm-up time according to DIN Standard condi-
tions may be ordered direct from the manufactur-
er.
Storing deep-frozen food and
the do’s and don’ts of storing
frozen food
Once the freezing process is completed, deep-
frozen storage takes place in the temperature range
below -18 °C, the freezer system being regulated
automatically (fast freeze button switched off).
When freezing food yourself, please note the maxi-
mum storage times and the storage times indicated
in the "Freezer Booklet".
For storage of already frozen food, it is imperative to
note the storage time specified by the manufacturer
on the packing.
Make sure that only packed food is stored in the
freezer, since unpacked food will soon dry out when
exposed to the extreme cold.
With the exception of spirits and drinks containing a
higher percentage of alcohol, beverages in glass
bottles, particularly soft drinks containing carbon di-
oxide, juices, beer, wine, etc. should not be stored in
the freezer. When the contents freeze, the glass bot-
ties will crack or even burst.
Ice-cream and fatty foods should be kept near the
bottom.
Never handle deep-frozen food with wet hands.
Your hands could easily become frozen to the
food.
Never use the freezer as a means of cooling hot
meals, since this causes heavy frost formation on
the evaporators and an increase in electricity con-
sumption.
If you want to utilize fully the effective capacity of
your appliance and need to store an especially large
quantity of deep-frozen food, you can remove all
storage baskets. Even when food is loaded in this
manner, the functional safety of your appliance is as-
sured.
Defrosting and cleaning
The moisture in the air entering the freezer when the
lid is opened condenses in the freezer in the form of
frost.
This should be removed from time to time with a
plastic scraper, e.g. pastry scraper (not with a knife
or the like). It is not necessary to switch off the freez-
er when doing so. To prevent heavy frost formation,
keep the freezer lid closed as much as possible. This
also saves electricity, since heavy frost incrustation
impairs refrigerating efficiency.
Your freezer should be defrosted at least once a
year or as soon as a thick layer of frost has formed.
This is best done when your chest freezer is com-
pletely or partly empty.
Any temperature rise in the frozen food will reduce
the time for which it can be kept. Before defrosting
therefore, switch over your freezer to “Fast Freeze’
for around 12 hours to build up sufficient low-
temperature reserve.
All food packages remaining in the freezer, hermeti-
cally packed if possible, should then be
wrapped in several layers of newspaper and stored
in a cool place (e.g. refrigerator).
To defrost, the chest freezer is switched off: pull out
mains plug or remove fuse. The green lamp goes
out.
You can accelerate the defrosting process by plac-
ing a bowl of hot water in the freezer and removing
the lumps of ice before they are completely melt-
ed.
Never attempt to accelerate defrosting by means of
electric heating or warming appliances, candies, or
the like.
This may place you at risk of a serious accident and
may also damage your chest freezer.
Make sure when cleaning your chest freezer that no
liquids penetrate inside the operating and monitoring
devices and inside the electrical components.
Draining off after defrosting into removable sepa-
rating wall (not on all models):
To drain off the water after defrosting, remove the
plug from the defrosting outlet in the floor of the in-
ternal compartment. Before doing so, do not forget
9
to place the removed separating wall or a flat dish
under the outlet to collect the water (Fig. 9).
When defrosting is completed, refit the sealing
plug.
After defrosting the freezer, wash inside and out as
well as accessories with lukewarm water to which a
mild detergent can be added. Then rinse with clean
water and wipe dry. Finally, switch the freezer back
on.
The frozen food can be placed back inside after
around 10 minutes (see also “Starting up).
Faults and servicing
in order to ensure absolute safety always have any
necessary repairs, especially repairs to the electrical
parts of the appliance, carried out by a qualified elec-
trician. In the event of a breakdown, therefore, you
are advised to call either the dealer from whom you
purchased the freezer or our after-sales service de-
partment direct.
Before approaching our after-sales service, check
whether it is not one of the pilot light bulbs that is de-
fective.
if, for example, the green light goes out whilst the
freezer is operational, switch over to “Fast Freeze”.
If the amber light comes on, the green light is defec-
tive.
If the amber light does not come on when set to “Fast
Freeze”, but the refrigerating unit is operational, this
means that the amber light must be replaced.
if neither of the pilot lights is on, first check that the
power supply has not been cut off (mains plug,
house fuse, overall power failure in the supply sys-
tem, etc.). If necessary, contact your electrician im-
mediately.
If the red light and the temperature audible alarm
come on, or the temperature inside the freezer has
risen sharply without fresh food having been insert-
ed or the lid having been open for any length of time,
this means that there is a fault.
Switch to "Fast Freeze", keep your freezer closed,
and notify our after-sales service immediately (see
list of service centres). In this case, do not carry out
any repairs yourself, especially in the electrical parts
of the appliance.
When doing so, please quote
— the type,
- E-number, and
— F-number of your appliance.
The rating plate bearing this information is located in-
side the lid.
Keep the freezer closed and inform our after-sales
service whether the refrigeration system is still oper-
ating. If the refrigeration system fails, the cold re-
tained in frozen food stored in a full freezer will re-
main effective for a specific period of time. This is
indicated in the brochure accompanying the appli-
ance.
N. B.! Unjustified after-sales service calls must be
paid for even during the guarantee period.
Important: Check regularly on the red temperature
monitoring lamp and on a thermometer placed inside
whether the storage temperature is being main-
tained.
When not in use
If your freezer is to remain unused for any length of
time, it must be disconnected (unplugged) from the
electricity supply. It should then be defrosted,
cleaned thoroughly, and the lid left open to prevent
any odours from forming.
Hints on energy-saving
One or two additional hints on energy-saving are giv-
en below:
- Do not install your freezer next to a radiator or
oven or in direct sunlight.
- Do not place any hot food in the freezer.
- Do not open the lid unnecessarily and close it
again as quickly as possible.
- Check the storage temperature in the freezer
compartment with a thermometer.
- Do not set the storage temperature lower than
-18 °C.
- Ensure good ventilation of all surfaces (sides) of
your chest freezer.
If you ever move house
If your freezer is not fully loaded, pack all the frozen
food in concentrated fashion at a few storage lev-
els.
Switch over to fast freeze 24 hours before the re-
moval van leaves to create a low-temperature re-
serve in the frozen food.
Secure the chest freezer lid against opening during
transport.
Place the chest freezer on the removal van last so
that you can unload it first and replug it into the
mains supply.
10
Special accessories
For full equipment of your chest freezer, universal
storage baskets, available only in sets of 2, can be
ordered from your supplier.
Your chest freezer can be made lockable by a retrofit
set.
Cover lock
if your chest freezer is equipped with a lock, the key
should not be kept within reach of children or near
the appliance so that children cannot lock them-
selves inside.
