WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
5.1 Freezing fresh food
The freezer compartment is suitable for
freezing fresh food and storing frozen
and deep-frozen food for a long time.
ENGLISH
To freeze fresh food activate the
FastFreeze function at least 24 hours
before placing the food to be frozen in
the freezer compartment.
In the event of accidental
defrosting, for example due
to a power failure, if the
power has been off for
longer that the value shown
in the technical data chart
under "Rising time", the
defrosted food must be
consumed quickly or cooked
immediately and then refrozen (after cooling).
Place the fresh food to be frozen in the
top compartment.
The maximum amount of food that can
be frozen in 24 hours is specified on the
rating plate, a label located on the
inside of the appliance.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours,
during this period do not add other food
to be frozen.
When the freezing process is completed,
you can restore previously set
temperature (see "FastFreeze function").
5.2 Storage of frozen food
When first starting-up or after a period
out of use, before putting the products in
the compartment let the appliance run at
least 2 hours with the FastFreeze
function turned on.
9
5.3 Thawing
Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to
being used, can be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment or at room
temperature, depending on the time
available for this operation.
Small pieces may even be cooked still
frozen, directly from the freezer: in this
case, cooking will take longer.
6. HINTS AND TIPS
6.1 Normal operating sounds
6.3 Hints for freezing
The following sounds are normal during
operation:
•
•
•
•
•
A faint gurgling and bubbling sound
from coils sound when refrigerant is
pumped.
A whirring and pulsating sound from
the compressor when refrigerant is
pumped.
A sudden cracking noise from inside
appliance caused by thermic dilatation
(a natural and not dangerous physical
phenomenon).
A faint click noise from the
temperature regulator when the
compressor switches on or off.
6.2 Hints for energy saving
•
Do not open the door frequently or
leave it open longer than absolutely
necessary.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Freeze only top quality, fresh and
thoroughly cleaned food products.
For more efficient freezing and
thawing divide food into small
portions.
Wrap the food in aluminium foil or
polythene. Make sure that the
packages are airtight.
To avoid increase in temperature of
already frozen food, do not place
fresh unfrozen food directly next to it.
Lean foods store better and longer
than fatty ones. Salt reduces the
storage life of food.
Do not eat ice cubes, water ices or ice
lollies immediately after taking them
out of the freezer. Risk of frostbites.
It is advisable to show the freezing
date on each individual pack to
enable you to keep tab of the storage
time.
10
www.electrolux.com
6.4 Hints for storage of frozen
food
•
•
Make sure that the commercially
frozen food products were adequately
stored by the retailer.
Make sure that frozen foodstuffs are
transferred from the food store to the
freezer in the shortest possible time.
•
•
Once defrosted, food deteriorates
rapidly and cannot be refrozen.
Do not exceed the storage period
indicated by the food manufacturer.
7. CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING!

suitable for washing in a
dishwasher.
7.2 Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first
time, the interior and all internal
accessories should be washed with
lukewarm water and some neutral soap
to remove the typical smell of a brandnew product, then dried thoroughly.
CAUTION!
Do not use detergents,
abrasive powders, chlorine
or oil-based cleaners as they
will damage the finish.
7.3 Periodic cleaning
CAUTION!
Do not pull, move or damage
any pipes and/or cables
inside the appliance.
CAUTION!
