SWITCHING ON
1. Insert the plug into the wall socket.
2. Turn the Temperature Regulator to the Full
Loaded position and let the appliance run for
24 hours to allow the correct temperature to be
reached before placing food inside. The power
indicator light will light up.
3. Adjust the Temperature Regulator according to
the quantity of the stored foods.
SWITCHING OFF
Turn the Temperature regulator to the "0" position.
TEMPERATURE REGULATION
The temperature within the appliance is controlled
by the Temperature Regulator situated on the
control panel.
To operate the appliance, proceed as follows:
• to obtain a lower temperature inside the
appliance, turn the Temperature Regulator
clockwise.
6
A. Temperature Regulator
B. Half Loaded position
C. Full Loaded position
•
to obtain a higher temperature inside the
appliance, turn the Temperature Regulator
counterclockwise .
In case of freezing less food volumes, the Half
Loaded setting is the most suitable. In case of
freezing large amounts of food, the Full Loaded
setting is the most suitable (refer to "Switching
on").
However, the exact setting should be chosen
keeping in mind that the temperature inside the
appliance depends on:
• room temperature
• how often the lid is opened
• the quantity of food stored
• the location of the appliance.
HIGH TEMPERATURE ALARM
An increase in the temperature in the freezer (for
example due to a power failure) is indicated by
switching on of the Alarm light .
During the alarm phase, do not place food inside
the freezer.
When normal conditions are restored, the Alarm
light will switch off automatically.
DAILY USE
WARNING! Refer to Safety chapters.
FREEZING FRESH FOOD
The freezer compartment is suitable for freezing
fresh food and storing frozen and deep-frozen food
for a long time.
The maximum amount of food that can be frozen in
24 hours is specified on the rating plate (refer to
"Technical data").
The freezing process lasts 24 hours: during this
period do not add other food to be frozen.
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 24 hours Temperature
Regulator to the Full Loaded position.
CAUTION! In the event of accidental
defrosting, for example due to a power
failure, if the power has been off for
longer than the value shown in the
technical characteristics chart under
"rising time", the defrosted food must
be consumed quickly or cooked
immediately and then re-frozen (after
cooling).
The numbers indicate storage times in months for
the appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether the
upper or lower value of the indicated storage time
is valid depends on the quality of the foods and
treating before freezing.
STORAGE BASKETS
Hang the baskets on the upper edge of the freezer
(A) or place them inside the freezer (B). Turn and fix
the handles for these two positions as shown in the
picture.
A
The following pictures show how many baskets can
be placed inside the various freezer models.
The baskets will slide into each other.

OPENING AND CLOSING THE LID
CAUTION! Never pull the handle with
immense force.
As the lid is equipped with a tightly closing seal, it
is not easy to reopen it shortly after closing (due to
the vacuum formed inside). Wait for few minutes
before reopening the appliance.
The vacuum valve will help you to open the lid.

HINTS AND TIPS
WARNING! Refer to Safety chapters.
HINTS FOR FREEZING
To help you make the most of the freezing process,
here are some hints:
• The maximum quantity of food which can be
frozen in 24 hours is shown on the rating plate.
7
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The freezing process takes 24 hours. No further
food to be frozen should be added during this
period.
Freeze only top quality, fresh and thoroughly
cleaned foodstuffs.
Prepare food in small portions to enable it to be
rapidly and completely frozen and to make it
possible subsequently to thaw only the quantity
required.
Wrap up the food in aluminium foil or polythene
and make sure that the packages are airtight.
Do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to touch food
which is already frozen, thus avoiding a rise in
temperature of the latter.
Lean foods store better and longer than fatty
ones; salt reduces the storage life of food.
Water ices, if consumed immediately after
removal from the freezer compartment, can
possibly cause the skin to be freeze burnt.
It is advisable to show the freezing in date on
each individual pack to enable you to keep tab
of the storage time.
HINTS FOR STORAGE OF FROZEN FOOD
To obtain the best performance from this appliance,
you should:
• make sure that the commercially frozen
foodstuffs were adequately stored by the
retailer;
• be sure that frozen foodstuffs are transferred
from the store to the freezer in the shortest
possible time;
• not open the lid frequently or leave it open
longer than absolutely necessary.
• Once defrosted, food deteriorates rapidly and
cannot be refrozen.
• Do not exceed the storage period indicated by
the food manufacturer.
CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING! Refer to Safety chapters.
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 brand-new
product, then dried thoroughly.
CAUTION! Do not use detergents,
abrasive powders, chlorine or oilbased cleaners as they will damage
the finish.
PERIODIC CLEANING
CAUTION! Unplug the appliance
before carrying out any maintenance
operation.
Do not use detergents, abrasive
products, highly perfumed cleaning
products or wax polishes to clean the
inner side of the appliance.
Prevent damage to the cooling system.
There is no need to clean the
compressor area.
1. Switch off the appliance.
8
2. Regularly clean the appliance and the
accessories with warm water and neutral soap.
Clean the lid seal carefully.
3. Fully dry the appliance.
4. Connect the mains plug to the mains socket.
5. Switch on the appliance.
DEFROSTING THE FREEZER
CAUTION! Never use sharp metal
tools to scrape off frost as you could
damage the appliance. Do not use a
mechanical device or any artificial
means to speed up the thawing
process (other than those
recommended by the manufacturer). A
temperature rise of the frozen food
packs, during defrosting, may shorten
their safe storage life.
The amount of frost on the walls of the
appliance will be increased by the high
level of the outer environment humidity
and if the frozen food is not wrapped
properly.
Defrost the freezer when the frost layer reaches a
thickness of about 10-15 mm.
1. Switch off the appliance.
2. Remove any stored food, wrap it in several
layers of newspaper and put it in a cool place.
3. Leave the lid open, remove the plug from the
defrost water drain and collect all defrost water
on a tray.
4. When defrosting is completed, dry the interior
thoroughly and refit the plug.
5. Switch on the appliance.
6. Set the temperature regulator to obtain the
maximum coldness and run the appliance for
two or three hours using this setting.
7. Reload the previously removed food into the
compartment.
1. Switch off the appliance and disconnect the
appliance from electricity supply.
2. Remove all food
3. Defrost and clean the appliance and all
accessories.
4. Leave the lid open to prevent unpleasant
smells.
PERIODS OF NON-OPERATION
When the appliance is not in use for long periods,
take the following precautions:
If the cabinet will be kept on, ask
