Setting up
This appliance was designed to operate at an
ambient temperature between +100C and
+430C (SN-T class). If the ambient
temperature is above +430C, inside the
appliance the temperature can increase.
Set up the appliance far from any source of
heat and fire. Placing it in a warm room, the
direct exposure to sunbeams or near a heat
source (heaters, cookers, ovens), will
increase the energy consumption and shorten
the product life.
 Please observe the following minimun
 100 cm from the cookers working with coal
or oil;
 150 cm from the electric and gas cookers.
 Ensure the free circulation of the air around
the appliance, by observing the distances
shown in Item 2.
Assemble on the condenser (in the rear side)
the supplied spacers (Item 3).
 Place the appliance in a perfectly even, dry
and well ventilated place.
Assemble the supplied accessories.
Before putting into operation, clean the inside
of the appliance (see chapter „Cleaning").
After finishing this operation please plug in the
appliance, adjust the thermostat knob to an
average position. The green and red LEDs in
the signalling block must light. Leave the
appliance work for about 2 hours without
putting food inside it.
The freezing of the fresh food is possible after
min. 20 hours of operation.

Temperature adjustment
The temperature of the freezer is adjusted by
means of the knob assembled on the
thermostat (Item 4), position „MAX” being the
lowest temperature.
The achieved temperatures can vary
according to the conditions of use of the
appliance, such as: place of the appliance,
ambient temperature, frequency of door
opening, extent of filling with food of the
freezer. The position of the thermostat knob
will change according to these factors.
Normally, for an ambient temperature of
approx. 320C, the thermostat will be adjusted
on an average position.
The freezer is intended to keep the frozen
food for a long time, as well as to freeze fresh
One of the main elements for a successful
food freezing is the packing.
The main conditions that the packing must
fulfill are the following: to be airtight, to be
inert towards the packed food, to resist to low
temperatures, to be proof to liquids, grease,
water vapours, smells, to be able to be
These conditions are fulfilled by the following
types of packings: plastic or aluminium film,
plastic and aliminium vessels, waxed
cardboard glasses or plastic glasses.
- For freezing the fresh food please use the
supplied baskets of the appliance.
- Do not place into the freezer a too large
quantity of food at a time. The quality of the
food is best kept if they are deeply frozen as
quickly as possible. This is why it is advisable
not to exceed the freezing capacity of the
appliance specified in the "Product Fiche".
In order to reduce the freezing time, push the
button for „fast freeze”.
- The fresh food must not come into contact
with the food already frozen.
- The frozen food you have bought can be
placed into the freezer without having to
adjust the thermostat.
- If the freezing date is not mentioned on the
packing, please take into consideration a
period of max. 3 months, as a general guide.
- The food, even partially defrosted, cannot be
frozen again, it must be consumed
immediately or cooked and then refrozen.
- The fizzy drinks will not be kept in the
- In case of a power failure, do not open the
door of the appliance. The frozen food will not
be affected if the failure lasts less than 36
The signalling system is placed on the front
side of the freezer (Item 5).
It includes:
1. Thermostat adjustment knob – the inside
temperature is adjusted.
2. green LED – shows that the appliance is
supplied with electric energy.
3. red LED – damage – lights if the
temperature in the freezer is too high. The
LED will operate 15-45 minutes after the
putting into operation of the freezer, then it
must go off. If the LED goes on during the
operation, this means that defects have
4. Orange button– fast freeze – by pushing it
the orange led goes on, showing that the
appliance entered into the "fast freeze"
mode . The exit of this mode is done by
pushing the button again, and the orange
led goes off.
The three LEDs give information about the
mode of operation of the freezer.
Replacing the interior light bulb
If the lamp burns out, disconnect the
appliance from the mains. Take out the lamp
trim. Make sure the lamp is screwed correctly.
Plug in the appliance again. If the lamp still
does not go on, replace it with another one
model E14-15W. Mount back the lamp trim in
its place.
After 24 hours since the food was placed
inside, please cancel the "fast freeze"
mode by pushing again the button 4, when
the orange led goes off.
Instruction for use
Defrosting of the appliance
Outside cleaning
 Clean the outside of the freezer by means
of a sponge soaked in soapy warm water,
wipe with a soft cloth and dry.
 The cleaning of the outside part of the
refrigerating circuit (motorcompressor,
condenser, connection tubes) will be done
with a soft brush or with the vacuum-cleaner.
During this operation, please take care not to
distort the tubes or detach the cables.
Do not use scouring or abrasive materials!
 After having finished the cleaning, replace
the accessories at their places and plug in the
We advise you to defrost the freezer at
least twice a year or when the ice layer has an
excessive thickness.
 The ice build-up is a normal phenomenon.
 The quantity and the rapidity of ice build-up
depends on the ambient conditions and on the
frequency of the door opening.
 We advise you to defrost the appliance
when the quantity of frozen food is the least.
 Before defrosting, adjust the thermostat
knob to a higher position so that the food
stores more cold.
- Unplug the appliance.
- Take out the frozen food, wrap it in several
sheets of paper and put them in refrigerator or
a cool place.
Take the separator panel and put it under the
freezer in the direction of the dripping tube.
Take out the obstructing plug. The water which
results will be collected in the special tray
(separator panel). After the melting of the ice
and the run-off of the water please wipe with a
cloth or with a sponge, then dry well. Put the
obstruction plug back in its place. (Item 6)
For a fast thaw please leave the door open.

Instruction for use
Noises during operation
The bubbling and gurgling noises coming from
the refrigerant circulating in the pipes of the
appliance, are normal operating noises.
In order to keep the temperature at the value
you have adjusted, the compressor of the

situation are normal.
They are redced as soon as the appliance
reaches the operation temperature.
Never try to repair yourself the appliance or its
electric components. Any repair made by an
unauthorised person is dangerous for the user
and can result in the warranty cancellation.
The humming noise is made by the
compressor. It can become a little stronger
when the compressor starts.
