Instruction for use
Appliance description
Advise for food conservation
(Item. 1)
The freezer is intended to keep the frozen food
for a long time, as well as to freeze fresh food.
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 washed.
These conditions are fulfilled by the following
types of packings: plastic or aluminium film,
plastic and aliminium vessels, waxed
cardboard glasses or plastic glasses.
Door handle
Lamp housing
Lock housing
Thermostat box
Spacer for transport
Freezer 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
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.
- 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".
- 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. LED Orange– fast freeze function activated
– by setting the knob to Superfreeze
position the orange led goes on, showing
that the appliance entered into the "fast
freeze" mode. The exit of this mode is
done automatically after 50 hours then the
appliance runs in economic mode, and the
orange led goes off.
The three LEDs give information about the
mode of operation of the freezer.

- when placing frozen food in the freezer;
- when freezing up to approx. 2 kg fresh food
Defrosting of the appliance
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 buildup 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.
