Read carefully the warnings contained in the present book, they contain important points about safety installation, use and maintenance.

Store the instructions book away and give it to any future owner of the freezer.

The appliance is adapted to preserve and to freeze perishable foods for domestic use. Every other type of use is considered improper.

The installation must be done according to this instructions book. An incorrect installation may damage the apparatus.

In case any appliance functioning problems, please refer to the authorised assistance centres or otherwise always and only to specialised personnel.

Before any maintenance operations, be sure to unplug and avoid to pull the electrical wire or the apparatus.

If this freezer replaces another one with a latch lock, a spring lock, etc., remember, before scrapping it, to break the lock, or better still, to dismantle the door in order to avoid that someone may remain trapped inside (children playing, animals, etc.).

The parts destined to be in contact with foods are in accordance with the EEC 89/109 directives. The apparatus is in accordance with the relative safety regulations for electrical household appliances.

After having unpacked the freezer, please control that it is not damaged. Possible damages must be notified to the dealer within 24 hours from delivery. Do not scatter the packing material (plastic, polystyrene, etc.).

For a good use and functioning of the freezer, place it far from sources of heat and be sure to place it in a well ventilated area (see APPARATUS INSTALLATION

page 14

). Never leave liquid-filled glass bottles in the freezer as they may explode.

WHAT IS REFRIGERATION

VENTILATION AND HOW DOES

IT WORK?

A

This appliance has been designed and built in a way so as to avoid internal frost or ice accumulation. The cooling of foodstuff is effected by means of forced cold air

(C)

circulation inside the freezer compartments.

The humidity is not deposited as frost on the foodstuff and on the internal walls of the freezer

(this is normal in traditional freezers), but is captured by the air flow and transported to the refrigerating evaporator

(A)

and kept under form of ice.

A device automatically melts the ice and the water thus produced flows through tube

(B)

into the collecting tray

(D)

where it evaporates.

This is FROST FREE: a drier climate and a more uniform temperature for better food preservation.

There is no need for you to effect any defrosting operations.

Place of installation

Before installing the appliance, please read the safety rules and regulations carefully in order to avoid any inconvenience. Place the apparatus in a closed, dry and well ventilated area far from sources of heat and at least 3/5 cm. away from any other furniture. Keep the appliance away from the wall by means of the spacers to be mounted behind

(fig. 2)

. Adjust the front small feet so that the appliance leans slightly backwards. This will help to close the door in a proper way. During the intermediate seasons, Spring and Autumn, when the domestic heating is not in function, it may occur that the external walls of the freezer fill up with tiny drops

(condensation). This phenomenon will not interfere with the good functioning of the appliance and neither will it be danger to a person.

If your equipment has a height equal to 1565 mm or 1385 mm, it can be coupled with a refrigerator with the same dimensions, through an assembly kit that has been separately supplied by your retailer.

Roller equipped apparatus installation

If your appliance is equipped with rollers, remember that these rollers serve to facilitate small movements. Do not pull or push it for long distances. Having set up the appliance in its proper position, extract the key placed under the base

fig. 4

and with this key, rotate the two small front feet anticlockwise

fig. 3

until the appliance is slightly raised from the ground. In this way the freezer will remain blocked and will not slide on its rollers anymore. Adjust the small feet in a way that the appliance is leaning slightly backwards.

Reversible doors

The opening of the door of the freezer is to the left (hinges on the right), if instead you wish to invert it, you may proceed as follows:

I.

Check that this model possesses a base

fig. 5

, then remove it by unscrewing the screws; if your appliance is without any base, start reading from number

Close off the remaining holes on the left with the small caps that you have removed from the right and replace the freezer in a vertical position.

If your model is equipped with a base, finish the operation by screwing it back into the initial seat

fig. 5

.

If your freezer has been transported to your house in a horizontal position, please wait for a few hours before switching it on, so that the oil can flow back into the compressor.

Proceed with the internal cleaning (see INTERNAL CLEANING

page 17

). You may now plug in your apparatus without using reducers (see ELECTRICAL CONNECTION

page 15

). Following the first electric connection, it may be happen that the unit will not start the cooling cycle immediately even through the GREEN LIGHT is lit upon the control panel. This indicates that the defrosting cycle is taking place. Functioning of the unit will restart automatically within half an hour. Position the thermostat to fast freezing (see CONTROL PANEL

page 15

). Wait a few hours before putting in foodstuffs.

If this appliance is supplied with a 13 amp fused plug moulded onto its mains lead, it must not be used without the fuse carrier cover filled. Replacement carrier covers are available from the local Electricity Company. Use only on a 220/240 volt 50 Hz AC supply fitted with a 10 amp fuse in the supply or a 13 amp fuse in the plug. For replacement of the fuse in the moulded plug use a 13 amp BS 1362 fuse which must be an ASTA or BS approved or certified type. When replacing the fuse in the plug make sure to re- fit the fuse cover. If the fuse cover is lost, the plug must not be used until a replacement is obtained. If a replacement fuse cover is required, ensure it is of the same colour as that visible on the pin face of the plug.

Important:

If for any reason the moulded plug is removed, or the appliance has been supplied without any plug, the instructions given below should be carefully followed. Dispose of a plug that has been cut from the flexible cord.

WARNING:

There is the shock hazard if such a plug is inserted in a 13 A socket elsewhere in the house.

The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:

Green & Yellow - earth

Blue - neutral

Brown - live

As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug: The wire which is coloured greenyellow must be connected to the terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter “E” or with the earth symbol or is coloured green or green & yellow. The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter “N” or is coloured black.

The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter “L” or coloured red. If the terminals in the plug are not marked or if you are in any doubt as to the correct connections, consult a qualified electrician, who is registered with the

National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC).

WARNING:

This appliance must be earthed.

The control and signals panel is situated on the upper part of the cabinet (above the door

fig. 1 page 13

). You will find the KNOB that regulates the thermostat, the GREEN, RED, YEL-

LOW warning light and/or the thermometer.

GB

The

KNOB

regulates the thermostat between the less cold (MIN/–) and colder (MAX/+) temperature positions. Normally, an intermediate position is quite adequate. It is better to regulate the thermostat towards a colder position when the room temperature is over 30 °C or otherwise when the internal part of the appliance has heated up owing to repeated and prolonged openings of the door. There is also the fast freezing position (S/SUPER/FF) and the switched off position

O

. Warning: when the thermostat is in position

O

(compressor switched off), the appliance remains live.

SWITCHING THE APPLIANCE OFF

The green lamp goes out turning the appliance off (knob completely rotated anticlockwise). So this lamp may be off even if the appliance is connected to the mains.

Before proceeding with any maintenance or cleaning operation, be sure to pull the plug out of the socket.

GREEN WARNING

LIGHT ON

indicates that the freezer is active.

RED WARNING

LIGHT ON

indicates that the temperature inside the freezer is too hot (e.g. loss of current, breakdown, etc.). Regulate the thermostat knob onto a colder temperature and control that the foodstuff in the freezer are not even partially thawed (see IMPORTANT NOTICE

page 17

). The red warning light way switch on with fast freezing operation, by keeping the door opened for a lengthy period of time, during defrosting (max 3 times a day): this however is not due to any anomalies.

YELLOW WARNING

LIGHT ON

indicates that the rapid freezing is functioning. The freezer is freezing as much as possible.

RAPID FREEZING

is activated by turning the knob to S/SUPER/FF and is manually switched off by turning the knob anticlockwise.

THERMOMETERS

Some freezer models are provided with thermometers that allow you to see the internal temperature. The thermometers may have different shapes and different application characteristics.

Mechanical thermometers

It is found on the control panel (to the left of the warnings lights) and is divided into three sectors: RED, GREEN, YELLOW.

Red sector

alarm condition. The temperature is too high (hot). Take immediate precautions

(see RED WARNING

page 16

).

Green sector

preservation condition. The position that you have chosen by moving the knob (see CONTROL PANEL

page 15

) is optimal and the freezer is in a condition to keep the foodstuffs at their best.

Yellow sector

rapid freezing condition with the coldest temperature.

HOW TO LOAD THE APPLIANCE

How to prepare foodstuffs

Wrap the foodstuffs in plastic bags, sheets of polyethylene, sheets of aluminium freezing boxes (all these types of material are sold with the indication “good for freezing”) before putting them in the freezer. When you prepare these packets, press them to avoid the air being tapped inside. Each type of foodstuff needs a particular way of preparation for freezing. For this purpose, we have prepared a Freezing chart for easy consultation (see FREEZING

page 17

).

Bring the freezer to its maximum freezing temperature

(see RAPID FREEZ-

ING

page 16

)

at least 24 hours before putting great quantities of foodstuff to be frozen

(see

data plate fig. 19 page 15

).

Load the freezer in the suitable fast freezing compartments (see CAPTION

page 13

) and wait for 24 hours before disconnecting the fast freezing thermostat. At this point the freezing process is to be considered completed. Open the freezer and put the foodstuffs in the preservation compartments. Position the thermostat to the ideal preservation temperature. When you freeze fresh foodstuffs, never put them in contact with those already frozen.

Warning: before closing the freezer be sure that the compartments flaps are closed.

Do not preserve in the freezer for periods longer that indicated in the freezer cards or as advised by the frozen food manufacturers. It is for this reason that when new products are put into the freezer, the manufacturing and the expiry dates must be clearly marked on the products.

DEFREEZING

IMPORTANT NOTICE

INTERNAL CLEANING

GB

Freeze only fresh and ripe foodstuffs.

Maximum hygiene should be respected because freezing does not sterilise.

It is advisable to freeze foodstuffs subdivided into one meal confections.

Never put anything hot or warm into the freezer! Do not put fresh foodstuffs near the frozen ones, this could cause an increase temperature.

Consume the products before date as indicated on the freezing charts.

Every packet or box, etc. that you place into the freezer must have the following requisites:

manufacturing and expiry date;

number of portions contained;

glass jars must be in Pyrex and never filled to the brim (freezing expands liquids);

small bags are to be compressed to eliminate the air and must be as flat as possible;

every confection must be closed in order to protect the foodstuffs;

remove the fat from the meat to preserve it better.

Observe the maximum quantities to be put in within 24 hours

(as indicated on the

data plate fig. 19 page 15

).

Defreeze the product for immediate use only. Defreezing must be observed according to the cases and to the product. This must be carried out in four ways:

in the fridge

at room temperature

in the oven at 40/50 °C or in the micro-oven

by cooking

Defreezing in the fridge is slower but the safest.

If you purchase frozen foodstuffs verify that:

the packing has been well sealed and not mishandled or damaged;

there are no iced lenses (this means that the product has already been even partially thawed);

the processing date and dates relevant to the type of freezer have boon clearly marked

(yours is );

in the meantime the products have not thawed, not even partially;

It is important not to block the cooling air inlets and outlets that are found on the top part and on the back wall of the appliance, fig. 20, with containers, packets, etc…

Be sure to allow free air circulation between the products which are placed inside the freezer. Never put into your mouth frozen products that have just been taken out of the freezer (ice-cream, ice-lollies, ice cubes, etc.), because the extremely the low temperature to which they have been subjected may cause ice burns and possible tongue damage.

Every time you open the door of the freezer, you cause the internal temperature and consequent energy consumption to increase. Reduce to a minimum the opening times, by working out beforehand what has to be taken out or put in.

Should there be no electric current, do not open the door. The freezer will maintain its own freezing integrity for several hours.

In case of prolonged current absence, transfer the frozen foodstuffs into another working freezer.

If the food stuffs have been thawed, even partially, you may re-freeze them only after having cooked them!

If the freezer is not empty,

insert fast freezing

(see CONTROL PANEL

page 15

)

24 hours before cleaning

. This will guarantee a greater freezing degree to the products which are preserved and they will be preserved for a longer period once they have been taken out. As soon as you have removed the products, wrap the in newspaper and then in a blanket (cooling bags will also do). Place everything in a cool place or even better, in a refrigerator.

Once this operation has been completed, unplug the freezer and proceed to clean it.

Carry out the cleaning by using bicarbonate of soda melted in water (1 spoon every 4 litres of water).

DO NOT USE ABRASIVE DETERGENTS.

Rinse with water and dry with a cloth.

Before placing the frozen products put the plug into the socket and switch on the fast freezing operation. Wait for 3-4 hours before replacing the foodstuffs into the proper compartments. After a further 24 hours you may position the thermostat on to the preservation temperature (see CONTROL PANEL

page 15

).

Should no food be placed into the freezer within the next 48 hours, position the thermostat onto the minimum temperature. Do not strain the compressor unnecessarily.

EXTERNAL CLEANING

MINOR BREAKDOWNS AND

ANOMALIES

FREEZING TABLES

GB

Before effecting any other operation, unplug the freezer. Use the same delicate method for external cleaning as you did for the internal cleaning. Remember to clean the condenser placed at the back of the appliance

fig. 1 page 13

. Use a dry brush or better still, a vacuum cleaner.

Before calling the Service department, see if you can solve the problem through the following check-points:

UNUSUAL NOISES

You haven’t regulated the base properly and so the freezer vibrates.

It is normal to hear not only the noise of the compressor but also the whirling of the ventilator especially when the door is opened.

REDUCED COOLING POWER

You have placed a larger quantity of food than advisable (see

data plate fig. 19

on

page 15

).

You have opened the door too many times.

The door has not been properly closed.

LOSS OF COOLING POWER

Check that the plug and socket are making contact.

You may have a blown mains fuse.

The main light switch has tripped.

The knob is on “

O

” position.

DOOR WING HOT

This is NOT a defect, but helps to prevent formation of condensation on the external pant of the appliance.

WHITE STREAKING ON FROZEN MEATS

The temperature is too low or you have not heeded the expiry dates indicated on the freezing chart.

PART-FREEZING

Normally, products containing lots of sugar, fats and alcohol such as ice-creams or juices, do not freeze completely and remain partially soft.

Fruit

Fruit must be covered with

sugar

or syrup according to the cases. The quantity of sugar to use in order to preserve it is

about 250 gr. per kg of fruit

. Syrups are to be used in different percentages and they are prepared by boiling water with some sugar already melted in it.

The various concentration are:

30% solution, 450 gr. of sugar for every litre of water

40% solution, 650 gr. of sugar for every litre of water

50% solution, 800 gr. of sugar for every litre of water

To maintain the colour of the fruit unaltered, dip it into some lemon juice before covering it with sugar, or otherwise add some lemon juice to the syrup. Fruit to be freezed needs an hour in the fridge for setting before being placed into the freezer. The syrup must cover the fruit completely.

Bread

To be preserved for

2 months.

Defreeze the bread in the oven at 50 °C having put it in before switching the oven on.

Butter and cheese

Before freezing butter and cheese, cut them into pieces for weekly consumption. Butter is preserved for

8 months

and so is hard cheese (parmesan). Other types of cheese need

4 months

. defreezing must be done in the fridge being careful about the condensation which logically forms on these products.

Eggs

Eggs are to be frozen without the shell and are to be placed into small containers (e.g.

cleaned yoghurt cups). Once frozen, they must be placed into polythene bags for preservation. They last for

3 months

.
