Regulation and Control
I Freezer control knob
4 Fast Freeze
Setting the knob at 1 will give you a minimum freezing
temperature. Setting 7 will give you the maximum freezing temperature. For normal use set the freezer at a
middle setting (The exact setting will depend on your
usage of the freezer).
This feature is designed to help you freeze your
food more quickly. It is best to press the fast freeze
button before going shopping (preferably 3 houres
in advance) in order to have the freezer in an optimal state to put your food in. If you haven’t pressed
the button prior to purchasing your food you can of
course put your new purchases in, but it will take
longer for the freezer to cool down. (If you put a lot
of fresh food into your freezer you could cause the
temperature alarm to go on. For further information
see sention on temperature alarm).
2 The door alarm
If either of the doors is left open for a prolonged period
of time the door alarm will start to beeb and a red flashing light will go on. Pressing the alarm button will
switch the buzzer off and the light will stop flashing,
but remain red. If you simply shut the doors, this will
also switch off the door alarm buzzer and the light
3 Temperature alarm
If the internal temperature has risen significantly the
temperature alarm will sound and the light will start to
flash. To switch the alarm off simply press the temperature alarm button. This will stop the buzzer and the
red light will stop blinking and remain red.
The temperature alarm may go on because:
a.- The doors have been left open.
b.- There has been a power failure.
c.- More than the recomended amount of food has been
put in at one time.
d.- You need to set the temperature controls to a colder
If the alarm goes on constantly you should contact you
5 On/Off button
To make the product work press the ON/OFF button continuosly for 3 seconds. To switch the product off press the button continuously for 3
seconds. When the product has been plugged in and
the button pressed for the 3 seconds, the button will
light up in green. If the ON/OFF button is green the
freezer knob and fridge knob will also be lit up.
6 Fridge control
Setting the knob to the standby position when the
freezer is working, but the fridge if not being used,
(for example when you go on holiday), will help
you to reduce energy consumption. The fridge door
however must be kept closed.
By turning the knob clockwise you will progressively cool down the fridge. Position 5 is the coldest
setting possible.
If neither the fridge nor the freezer are being used
(i.e. The appliance switched off), both doors should
be left open. This will help to avoid any possible
smells caused by high levels of humidity.

How to use your
Freezing compartment
This freezer, marked
, is suitable for freezing food and permits long term storage of frozen
Freezing of food
Food to be frozen should be left for at least 24 hours.
The procedure for this is as follows:
1... If the freezer has been disconnected and is empty,
plug it an and leave for 3 hours before putting any
food in. By pressing the fast freezer button 24
hours before freezing you will help cool down the
freezer quicker.
If the temperature alarm goes on see the earlier section on the temperature alarm.
2... It is possible that the temperature alarm will sound
if a lot of new food is put in with existing food.
This is due to a slight rise in temperature. The
alarm will switch itself off automatically.
Conserving frozen food
To store Food properly the inside temperature should
never rise above - 18°C.
An ajustable temperature control regulates this temperature.
Make sure the thermostat is on a medium setting.
However, it may sometimes be necessary (due to poor
ventilation, high room temperatures, frequent opening
of doors…) to regulate the setting of the thermostat.
In the case of an accidental stoppage of the appliance
or a power cut proceed as follows:
• Keep the doors closed at all times.
• Try to find out how long the loss of power will last
Once re-established:
A) If the freezer is fully loaded and the power failure is less than the time indicated on the
«Rating Plate» no damage has been done to the
B) If the freezer is not fully loaded the temperature
will rise more quickly. If thawing has not started
proceed as in point A.
C) If the temperature has risen sufficiently the temperature alarm will sound and the temperature
indicator will blink.
You should:
• Check that the doors are shut. If they are not,
you will hear also the door alarm.
• Check that you haven’t overloaded the fridge/freezer with a large amount of new food.
• Check that there hasn’t been a long power cut.
• Check that the fridge/freezer appears to be
working properly and isn’t broken. You
should switch the alarm off by pushing the
appropriate button.
If it continues to come back on it is likely that
there is a problem with the product. Advice
then to the Technical Oficial Service.
If thawing has started, consume the food immediately, or cook it and then freeze it again.
How to use your
Refrigerator Compartment:
This compartment is designed to store drinks and
fresh food. The inner temperature is normally uniform and is kept cool by cold circulating air.
Try to avoid putting food products flush against the air
vents at the back of the fridge as this could cause the
foods to freeze. (see fig. 9).
The dynamic cooling system preserves better the food,
keeping its characteristics for a long time. For that,
wrap the food, so that it does not lose humidity (dehydration, loss of colour). Then, food value and aroma
will also be kept.
Some models might have.:
• A crisp and fresh vegetable compartment. If so, it
will also have a moisture filter which helps to keep
moisture levels high and therefore your fruit and
vegetables fresher.
• A chiller box. This is an ideal place to store meat,
fish and pre-cooked food.
Useful Hints
Do not introduce any new food during a freezing.
Do not put any newly introduced food for freezing
near to already frozen food.
Wrap the food up properly or place it in air tight
containers before putting it into the fridge/freezer.
Do not put any hot food into the freezer.
Food and drinks, which have a strong smell, may
affect other foods and drinks if not stored in an
appropriate manner.
Fig. 9
Follow instructions given in cookbooks to help conserve food longer.

2. Cooling system.
The injected cooling gas may produce a gurgling sound
while passing through the tubes.
3. Motor.
May cause a humbing noise and/or slight bumping.
4. Insulation.
The material used has a tendency to slightly increase
noise levels, however it allows for much better insulation and a lower energy consumption.
5. Fans.
You may occasionally hear the fans working. This is
nothing to worry about. The fans are simply helping the
air to circulate more effectively.
