WHAT IS REFRIGERATION

VENTILATION AND HOW

DOES IT WORK?

This appliance has been designed and built so as to avoid condensation forming within the refrigerator. Condensation dispersal is carried out automatically by a specific device. The ensuing water will flow through a small pipe into a collection tank from where it will evaporate.

"NO FROST": You are not required to carry out any defrosting operation.

3

REVERSIBILITY OF THE

DOOR

The opening of the door is normally on the left hand side of the equipment (the hinges are on the right.) Should you require the opening on the right hand side, you could undertake the change by following the instructions detailed hereunder.

1.

Unfasten the screws which secure the base (R0)

2.

Lay the equipment gently on its back (with the door facing upwards).

3.

Remove the skirting by inserting your hands under it, and pull the levers downwards that you will find towards the middle, and unhook the skirting by rotating it upwards

(R1). Remove the lever from its left seat and place it on the right seat (R2).

4.

Unscrew the lower hinge (R3), unscrew the right pivot and re-screw it on the left (R4)

5.

Remove the door of the freezer (R5) from the pivot of the upper hinge.

6.

Unscrew the upper hinge (R6) and put it on the left (R7).

7.

Insert the door on to the pivot of the upper hinge which is now on the left (R8).

8.

Insert the pivot of the lower hinge (R3) modified as per item 4 above, in the left seat at the bottom of the door, and re-screw the hinge to the equipment (R9).

9.

Replace the skirting, refasten the screws and reposition the equipment vertically.

Reversibility of the handle

If the model has a fixed vertical or horizontal handle, unscrew it from the left side and screw it to the right side

(fig. 16), by moving the protecting plugs that close the holes.

Should the model have a hinged handle, remove cover G (fig. 17) by unscrewing the screw that is protected by a small lid.

Unscrew the handle L from the left side, position it on the right side and make the 4 fixing holes ø 3 mm by using the handle it self as reference. Screw the handle to the door and replace the cover G. Unscrew the small contrasting block H from the left and position it to the right, aligning it to the handle and fitting it perfectly on to the edge of the unit.

N.B. Do not use the drill to make holes in the unit, the drill can be used to make holes on the door.

Screw with the self tapping screw supplied (there are no previous holes).

Seal the hole on the left with the small plug supplied separately. Insert the protecting plugs (supplied in the small bag) into the holes of the left side (fig.

18).

APPLIANCE INSTALLATION

A

Hinges Adjustment

In case of any accidental bumps during transport, the upper door may not be perfectly aligned with the frame panel.

Should this occur, lightly loosen the screw which fastens the pivot-holding plate (A) to the upper hinge. Close the door and align it with the frame panel.

Tighten the screw and check that the gasket closes properly.

After installing your appliance, check that nothing has been damaged. Should you detect any possible damage to the appliance, please contact your appliance salesman immediately.

Do not disperse packaging material such as plastic bags, polystyrene strips, etc., around the environment. Keep such material away from children.

If the appliance has been transported in a horizontal position, do not plug in the appliance but wait for a few hours

in order to allow the oil to flow back into the compressor. Place the appliance in a dry and aerated environment, duly protected from weather elements. Avoid placing your appliance on balconies, verandas, terraces. Excessive heat during summer and cold during winter could alter the good functioning operation of the appliance or even damage it altogether.

Do not position your appliance near a source of heat like an oven or a central heating plant.

Do not place your appliance next to other pieces of furniture, but leave at least a 3 to 5 cm space on the sides and 10 cm on the top.

Keep your appliance away from the wall by inserting spacers at the back of the said appliance.

Adjust the front legs so that the appliance will lean slightly backwards, to allow the door to close properly.

Clean your refrigerator compartment with a solution of sodium bicarbonate dissolved in water

(1 spoon for every 4 litres of water). Do not use alcohol, abrasive powders or detergents, as these could ruin the surface.

This appliance works best when the ambient temperature is between 16 °C and 32 °C.

Installation of appliance equipped with wheels

If your appliance is equipped with wheels, remember that these do facilitate small handling movements. However, do not pull the appliance for long stretches!

Adjust the legs so that the appliance leans slightly backwards.

SAVING ENERGY

The first way to save electricity is to select the correct place for appliance installation as specified above under installation instructions.

The second way to save electricity is to prevent heat from entering the refrigerator compartments. Keep the refrigerator doors open for as little time as possible and never store hot food inside, like soups or similar dishes in particular, as these will produce a great deal of steam.

Periodically check the door gaskets. Ensure the perfect closure of the doors. Should this not be the case, please contact the Service Centre.

The third way to save electricity is to maintain the heat exchange parts in good condition.

Prevent condensation from accumulating in the refrigerator. Defrost the appliance whenever the frost thickness exceeds 1-2 cm. This is not necessary with NO-FROST appliances.

Clean the condenser periodically as specified below in this Booklet.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION

Please ensure that the voltage (Volt, V) of the mains socket matches the indications on the data plate which you will find inside your appliance.

Should the socket and the appliance plug not be compatible, do not use adapters, multiple plugs or extensions, but have the socket replaced with another suitable kind by qualified personnel.

The socket which feeds the appliance must be kept operational for future operations

(cleaning, defrosting, etc.).

Should the cable become damaged, replace it timeously by contacting specialized Service

Centres for the purchase and assembly of the said cable.

Electric safety of this appliance is assured only when it has been connected to a perfectly effective earthing installation as specified in the electric safety norms in force.

STARTING PROCEDURE

Important: if the appliance has been transported to your house in a horizontal position, please wait for a few hours before plugging in the appliance to allow oil to flew back into the compressor.

Proceed with the Internal cleaning , then connect the appliance to the electric socket without using an adaptor (see Electrical connection).

USE OF THE APPLIANCE

Freezer Control

Operate the electronic control with signals (C1) which is located on the upper part of the equipment. You will see the switching-on push-button 3 of the equipment with a green light; the push button 4 for fast freezing with a yellow light; the switching off push button with a sound alarm with a red light (5), the push-button for temperature adjustment 2 and the temperature display 1.

Switching on and off

SWITCHING ON:

Press button 3 until the temperature is displayed.

The audible alarm will be activated when the appliance is switched on for the first time while it is “warm”.

Press button 5 to turn the alarm off. For more information, see the “Temperature Alarm” paragraph.

SWITCHING OFF:

Press button 3 again until the temperature display goes out.

Regulating the temperature

The appliance is pre-set for normal use. We recommend a temperature of -18°C.

To lower the temperature: press button 2

To raise the temperature: press button 2 until the temperature reaches –30°C.

Continue to press button 2; the temperature goes back to –15°C.

The temperature can be regulated between –15°C et –30°C.

When you press button 2 for the first time, the most recent setting (known as the reference setting) will appear, flashing.

You can change the temperature one degree at a time. Keeping the button pressed down changes the temperature more quickly.

The actual temperature in the appliance will be displayed about 5 seconds after the last press of the button.

Child safety

There is a child safety system to ensure that the appliance is not turned off accidentally. The safety setting is activated by pressing buttons 3 and 5 simultaneously for 2 seconds. The same buttons have to be pressed again to de-activate the safety system.

Temperature display

In normal operation the highest temperature of the frozen food is displayed. A slight deviation

(normally not more than one degree) from the normal value may occur for a short time due to the compressor cycle or the opening of the door.

Display brightness

To adjust the brightness of the display to the ambient light level, two levels of brightness are available. The degree of brightness can be changed by simultaneously pressing buttons 5 and

2.

Temperature alarm

This starts up if the temperature inside the freezer is not low enough (according to the set temperature). A visual warning (red flashing LED) and an audible alarm (buzzer) will switch on. If the temperature is lowered again, the alarm stops. The audible alarm can be switched off by pressing button 5 (Stop alarm).

Alarm power supply breakdown

If the temperature rises above the foodstuff safety level, following an electrical breakdown or some other reason, and then falls again to the normal level, the alarm (audible and visual) will not stop automatically, but must be switched off by pressing button 5.

Until the alarm is switched off, the actual temperature is displayed alternating with the highest temperature recorded.

Alarm door open

If the door stays open for longer than a minute, an audible alarm sounds. This alarm stays on until the door is closed or until button 5 is pressed.

Fast freeze

Pressing button 4 causes the freezer temperature to fall to the lowest possible level. The fast freeze function stops when button 4 is pressed, or automatically after 48 hours.

BEWARE!

before closing the freezer door, ensure that every container flap and/or drawer be perfectly closed within the appliance.

FREEZING

Important notice

If you purchase frozen foodstuffs verify that:

• the packing has boon well sealed and not mishandled or damaged;

• there are no iced lenses (this means that the product has already been oven 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 oven partially;

Never put into your mouth frozen products that have just been taken out of the freezer

(ice-cream, ice-blues, ice cubes, etc.), where the low temperature to which they have been subjected may cause ice burns and possible tongue damage.

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!

Freezing

Ensure that your freezing operations are carried out under the most hygienic conditions as freezing alone does not sterilise the food. It is advisable to freeze the food by packing it into separate meal portions and not in bulk form. Never put hot or even warm foodstuffs into the freezer! Prior to storing the frozen food, pack it in plastic bags, polyethylene sheets, aluminium foil or freezing containers (this material is found on the market and is labelled

“suitable for freezing”). Each pack or container, etc. which you will store into the freezer must follow the instructions below:

• freezing date and expiry date;

• number of portions;

• the glass containers must be of the Pyrex type and MUST NEVER be filled to the brim:

(freezing expands liquids);

• the packs must be pressed down for air elimination within and must be as flat as possible;

• all frozen food packs, whatever the type, must be closed in order to protect the food.

The maximum quantity of food which can be stored within a period of 24 hours is shown on the data table. Never store a higher quantity of food than indicated.

Do not place fresh foodstuffs next to frozen food. This would cause an increase in the temperature of the frozen foodstuffs.

Before freezing fresh foodstuffs, you must empty the fast freezing compartment, place frozen foodstuffs into the preservation compartments, then activate the fast freezing. After 24 hours you may place the fresh foodstuffs into the fast freezing compartment.

The quick-freezing compartments are the first two at the top (fig. 23).

Wait for the next 24 hours before switching off the fast freezing. In any case the switching off will take place automatically after 48 hours.

DEFREEZING

CLEANING

Defrost foodstuffs for immediate use only. Defrosting can be carried out in the following four manners:

• inside the refrigerator;

• in ambient temperatures;

• inside an oven at 40/50° or in a micro-wave oven;

• directly by cooking.

Defrosting in the refrigerator is a slower but safer operation and allows you to save electricity.

The freezing temperature of the foodstuff is released into the refrigerator during defrosting.

Internal cleaning

Before carrying out any other operation, unplug the freezer. Clean the appliance by using sodium bicarbonate dissolved in water (1 spoonful every 4 litres of water).

DO NOT USE ABRASIVE DETERGENTS.

Rinse off with water and dry with a cloth. Plug into the socket.

External cleaning

Before carrying out any other operation, unplug the freezer. Use the same delicate method for external cleaning as you did for the internal cleaning. Remember to dust off the condenser placed at the back of the appliance. Use a dry brush or better still, a vacuum cleaner.

MINOR BREAKDOWNS AND

ANOMALIES

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

Unusual noises

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

Reduced cooling power

- You have placed a larger quantity of food than advisable. You have opened the door too many times. The door has not been properly closed.

The appliance does not cool

- Check that the plug and socket are making contact. You may have blown a mains fuse. The main light switch has tripped. The electronic control is off.

The exterior of the appliance is hot

- This is NOT a defect, but helps to prevent formation of condensate on the external parts 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.

Water droplets on the external walls of the appliance

- During the Spring and Autumn seasons, when the house heating is turned off, it may happen that the external walls of the appliance show some water droplets (condensate). This phenomenon does not interfere with the good functioning of the appliance and is not dangerous to people.

Frost build up inside

- The door is not properly shut. You have opened the door too often.

The door opens with difficulty

- It is normal for the door to offer some resistance to opening after being closed. This is to ensure a perfect seal of the doors. Wait a few minutes before opening once again.

Do not boil

(1) Put a bit of vinegar or lemon in the cooking water.

(2) Salt well before cooking.

(3) The vegetables become mushy during the thawing, owing to the high content of water in them. We advise freezing only if you intend consuming the cooked products.

Generally, the vegetables are better if they are cooked directly without thawing. Reduce the cooking times bearing in mind the boiling effected before freezing.

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.

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

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.
