e For appliances with lockable lids: Children playing could get locked
in. Danger of suffocation! Keep the key out of the reach of children
and do not leave it near the appliance.
e Before disposing of old appliances make them inoperable. Remove
plug from mains, sever the power cable, remove or destroy any snap
or latch closures. This eliminates the danger that playing children lock
themselves into the appliance (danger of suffocation!) or place
themselves into other life-endangering situations.
» Children often do not recognise the dangers involved with household
appliances. Please provide for the necessary supervision and do not
allow children to play with the appliance!
‘Daily Operation
e Containers with flammable gases or fluids can develop leaks through
contact with the cold. Danger of explosion! Do not store containers
with flammable substances, such as aerosol cans, refill cartridges for
cigarette lighters etc. in the refrigerator/freezer.
e Bottles and cans may not be placed in the freezer compartment. They
can burst when the contents freeze - or even explode if the contents
contain carbonic acid! Never place sodas, juices, beer, wine,
champagne etc. into the freezer compartment. Exception: Spirits with
high alcohol content may be stored in the freezer compartment.
e Do not place ice cream or ice cubes directly from the freezer
compartment into the mouth. Very cold ice can freeze to the lips or
tongue and cause injury.

Installation Location
The appliance should be set up in a well ventilated, dry room. The
basement is an optimal place for chest freezers.
/\ Warning! The appliance may not be exposed to spray or splash water.
Danger of electrical shock!
Energy use is affected by the ambient temperature.
The appliance should therefore
— not be exposed to direct sunlight;
- not be installed next to radiators, cookers or other sources of heat;
— only be installed at a location whose ambient temperature
corresponds to the climate classification, for which the appliance is
The climate classification is stipulated on the serial plate which can be
found on the inner side of the lid. The following table shows which
ambient temperature is correct for each climate classification:
The refrigerator or freezer needs air.
The side walls become warm whilst the appliance is on. The heat is
generated by the special refrigerating system (shell condenser) and
prevents condensate and thus rust from forming on the side walls. In
order for the heat to be able to be dissipated, air must be able to
circulate around all the side walls.
Attention! To function correctly the appliance requires good
ventilation. Make sure that the side walls and the base of the appliance
are not covered or obstructed.
Appliance Alignment
IS The appliance must have a solid, level footing. Please compensate for
uneven floors with appropriate supports.

plate agree with the voltage of your electricity supply.
220/240 volts (i. e. 220/240V AC).
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
ist lost. À replacement cover/carrier must be obtained from an electri-
cal 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:
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the
following code:
Green and Yellow 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 indentifying the terminals in
your plug, proceed as follows:
1. The wire which is coloured green 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 connected to the live
terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red.
3. The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the neutral
terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black.
When wiring the plug, ensure that all strand of wire are securely retai-
ned in each terminal.
Do not forget to tighten the mains lead clamp on the plug.

Thermometer/digital temperature display
Thermometer (not included with all models)
Some models are supplied with a
thermometer which can be hung
inside the appliance. You could
for example hang the
thermometer on the top storage
baskets. If the freezer is not
completely full, you should place
the thermometer directly onto
the food stored for a more
precise temperature
If the lid is left open for a longer period, the thermometer display IS
influenced by the air in the room.
Digital temperature display
(not included with all models)
Some models have a digital temperature display °C
integrated in the handle of the lid. In normal operation,
it shows the temperature of the frozen products in
centigrade (°C). There are however the following
— After switching on the freezer "--" is shown briefly.
- If the temperature inside the freezer is higher than O °C, "+" appears.
- If the storage temperature cannot be measured due to a malfunction,
"+" or "-36", appear, simultaneously the warning buzzer and the red
warning light indicate an alarm condition. (Also see section "What to
do if...").
The temperature display indicates the temperature of the frozen food
and therefore changes relatively slowly, if you put fresh goods in for
example. If you leave the lid open for a long time, the temperature
warning may respond, the temperature display may however remain
unchanged. In this case there is no malfunction. Press the WARNING
OFF button, to switch the warning buzzer off. The red warning light
goes out automatically after a short time.
Appliance Description
Temperature Warning
If the temperature in the freezer is too high, the warning О
buzzer sounds and the red warning light flashes.
The warning buzzer and red warning light are triggered:
- if the storage temperature required has not yet been
reached when starting the freezer; if the storage
temperature is no longer maintained (malfunction);
, - after inserting fresh foodstuffs in a greater quantity than permitted
by the freezing capacity (see section on "Freezing”);
- if the lid is left open too long.
US" You can switch off the warning buzzer with the WARNING OFF button.
The red warning light continues to flash until it is sufficiently cold
again inside the freezer.
The warning buzzer and red warning light are not triggered:
— if the power supply is interrupted;
— ¡f the electronic thermostat is faulty.

Appliance Description
You can also place the storage baskets in the freezer and stack them. To
do this, turn the baskets as shown in the diagram and place them on
top of each other. The handles are not needed to do this.
Freezing trays (not included with all models)
Some models are equipped with freezing trays. You can place the
freezing trays in the storage baskets.
Berries, for example, can be pre-
frozen on the freezer tray.
Advantage: The berries are not
squeezed and maintain their
natural form. You can the pack
the frozen berries in portions
and store them.
Freezer packs (not included with all models)
Some models are equipped with
ice packs. The ice packs are
intended to stabilise the
temperature in the freezer.
To be able to fulfil this task
properly, the ice packs should
always be positioned right at
the top in the freezer.

can divide the freezer into a
large storage section A and a
smaller freezing section B (also
see section on "Freezing"). The
dividing partition can
additionally be used:
- for catching defrost water
(see section on "Defrosting"):
- as a freezing tray (e.g. for
prefreezing berries).
For this purpose, the dividing partition can either be placed on the
bottom of the small freezing section B or put into a storage basket.
Prior to Initial Start-Up
Please clean the appliance interior and all accessories prior to initial
start-up (see section: "Cleaning and Care”).
Remove the ice packs - if they have been supplied with your model.
Only place the ice packs to freeze on the floor of the freezer once the
optimal storage temperature of -18 °C has been reached.
After approx. 24 hours place the ice packs (if they were supplied with
your model) onto the freezing trays which are inserted in the storage
baskets hung at the top of the freezer.
If the freezing trays are being used for pre-freezing, you can place the
ice packs directly onto the frozen foods in the baskets hung at the top
of the freezer.
Re-freeze thawed ice packs in the same fashion, e.g. after cleaning the
appliance. |
Initial Start-Up
Insert plug into mains socket.
- The green power supply pilot light lights up as long as the appliance
is on.
- The red warning light flashes and the warning buzzer sounds as the
storage temperature required in the freezer has not yet been reached.
- For models with a digital temperature display "--" is briefly displayed.
Subsequently "+" is displayed as long as the temperature in the
freezer is above 0 °C.
Press the WARNING OFF button, to switch the warning buzzer off.
The red warning light goes out automatically after some time.
Temperature Adjustment
A coin has to be used to turn the
temperature controller. This
makes it more difficult to
inadvertently adjust the
temperature (child protection).
Position "1" means: warmest internal temperature
Position "4" means: coldest internal temperature
Recommended position: "2" to "3"
Twist the temperature controller to position "2" 10 "3" using a coin.
The following influences are of decisive importance for the internal
- ambient temperature;
- quantity of food stored;
— frequent or prolonged opening of the lid.
Therefore regularly monitor that the optimal storage temperature of -
18 °C or colder is maintained, either using the thermometer or the
digital temperature display depending on which model you have.
If necessary, correct the temperature setting, until the thermometer or
the digital temperature display shows -18 °C or colder.
From a nutritional point of view, -18 °C is considered a sufficiently cold
storage temperature.
e) Saving energy for half or partial loads
Some models enable you to save energy if your freezer is only half full
or less,
13 To do this, distribute all the
frozen foods in the lower area of
the freezer in such a way that
they do not exceed the green
marking” A on the dividing
— partition.
US” Turn the temperature controller
in the green economy area B.
US” Ensure that the optimal storage
temperature of -18 °C or colder is B— — .
Attention! If frozen foods are stored
above the green marking on the partition, turn the temperature
controller to position "2" to "4" again.
Switching the Appliance Off
IS To switch off the appliance pull out the plug from the power supply or
switch off or disengage the household fuse. The green power supply
pilot light goes out.

Maximum capacity / Stacking limit
To be able to store larger quantities or bulky products for freezing you
can remove all the storage baskets. The appliance will still function
safely if used in this way.
Do not stack the products higher
than the lower edge of the
plastic frame.
Tip: To freeze fresh foods use the small freezing compartment on the
right of the dividing partition (also see section on "Interior accessories
dividing partition"). This enables you to separate already frozen foods
from fresh foods. Always make sure already frozen goods cannot
defrost by coming into contact with fresh products. If the freezing
compartment is too small you can freeze part of the products in the
large storage section on the left of the dividing partition.
e Before freezing food the temperature in the freezer must be -18 °C
or colder.
e Please observe indicated freezing capacity on the serial plate. The
freezing capacity represents the maximum amount of fresh goods
that can be frozen within 24 hours. If you freeze goods on several
days, one after the other, freeze amounts equal to 2/3 to 3/4 of the
capacity indicated on the serial plate.
e Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into
meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
For exploitation of maximum freezing capacity press the O

Caution! Do not touch the frozen foods with wet hands. Hands can
freeze to the goods.
Place the packed food products into the freezer. Ensure they come into
contact with the side walls. Unfrozen goods may not come into contact
with already frozen goods, otherwise the frozen goods may start to
If more products have to be frozen, keep on the fast freeze switch -
otherwise switch the fast freeze function off about 24 hours after
inserting the food products, for smaller quantities earlier. To do this,
press the FROSTMATIC button again. The yellow FROSTMATIC display
goes out.
If you do not switch off the fast freeze process with the FROSTMATIC
switch it switches itself off automatically after 48 hours.
e The following are suited for the packaging of frozen goods:
- freezer bags and polyethylene wraps;
- special cans for frozen goods;
— extra-thick aluminium foil
* The following are suitable for closing bags and foil: plastic clips,
rubber bands or adhesive tape.
e Before closing press out the air from the bags and foil, as air make
the frozen products dry out more easily and wastes space.
e Make flat packages, because these freeze more quickly.
e Do not fill cans for frozen goods to the brim with liquid or paste-like
goods, because liquids expand during freezing.
Note for inspection authorities:
Batch plans for the determination of freezing performance or warm-up
time can be requested directly from the manufacturer.
Frozen Storage
Attention! Before filling the freezer for the first time with previously
frozen goods, the necessary storage temperature of -18 °C must have
been attained.
e Load freezer only with packaged frozen goods, so that they do not
dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of
other frozen goods can occur.
e Please observe maximum storage times and expiry dates of frozen
e Store ice cream and fatty foods in the lower area of the freezer (near
to the bottom).
Whilst in operation and when the lid is opened, the moisture inside the
freezer forms hoar frost. Remove this hoar frost from time to time with
a soft plastic scraper, e.g. a spatula. Do not under any circumstances
use hard or pointed objects for this purpose.
Defrost the freezer when the layer of hoar frost has become 4 mm
thick. For models with a no-frost system at least once a year.
Models with a minimum frost system do not need to be defrosted as
often, as in the case of these appliances ice and hoar frost take longer
to build up in the freezer. The minimum frost system is maintenance
free throughout the entire service life of the appliance.
A convenient time for defrosting is any time when the appliance is
empty, or only minimally loaded.
e Do not use electrical heating appliances or any other mechanical or
artificial devices to speed up the defrosting process, with the
exception of those recommended in these operating instructions.
* Do not use defrosting sprays, because they may be health
endangering and/or contain substances damaging to plastics.
About Press the FROSTMATIC button twelve hours before defrosting so
that the frozen goods are thoroughly deep frozen to cope with the
Caution! Do not touch frozen goods with wet hands Hands can freeze
to the goods.
Remove frozen goods, pack them in several layers of newspaper, cover
them and store them in a cool place, e.g. in a refrigerator.
Remove the mains plug or switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or
Remove the interior accessories (baskets, trays etc.).
Pull out the plug of the defrost
water outlet at the bottom of
the freezer.
To catch the defrost water, place
the freezing trays (not included
with all models), the dividing _
partition or another flat
receptacle under the defrost
water outlet.
Tip: To accelerate the defrosting
process, place a saucepan with
hot water in the appliance and
close the lid. Remove pieces of
ice that break away before
defrosting is complete.

Technical Terminology
Fluids which are used for refrigeration are called refrigerants. They
have a relatively fow boiling point; so low, that the warmth of foods
in the refrigeration appliance can cause them to boil or vaporise.
* Refrigerant circuit
Sealed circulation system, in which the is found. The refrigerant
circuit consists for the most part of an evaporator, a compressor, a
condenser and tubing.
e Evaporator
The refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator. Like all fluids,
refrigerants require warmth in order to be evaporated. Like all f'uids,
refrigerants require warmth in order to be evaporated. This is why the
evaporator is located inside the freezer or directly behind the interior
walls and as a result is not visible.
* Compressor
The compressor looks like a small bin. It is powered by a built-in
electric motor. It is the task of the compressor to withdraw vaporous
refrigerant from the evaporator, to compress it and feed it to the
e Condenser
The refrigerant which has been compressed by the compressor, IS
liquefied in the condenser. Thus warmth is released, which is given
off into the surrounding air at the surface of the condenser. The
condenser is therefore attached to the outside of the appliance or
directly behind the exterior sides and is thus not visible.
