declines to accept any liability should the instructions not be followed.
1. If possible avoid placing the appliance near cookers, radiators or in direct
sunlight as this will cause the compressor to run for long periods. If installed next
to a source of heat or refrigerator, maintain the following minimum side
From Cookers
From Radiators
From Fridges
4" (100 mm)
12" (300 mm)
4" (100 mm)
2. Make sure that sufficient room is provided
around the appliance to ensure free air circulation.
Ideally, ensure you allow gaps as shown in the
below diagram.
3. The appliance should be located on a smooth surface.
4. Refer to "Cleaning and Care" section to prepare your appliance for use.
5. Fit the two plastic wall spacer supplied
with the appliance rotating 1/4 turn to
the condenser at the back of the
freezer (see diagram).
6. If the freezer is installed in unheated areas, garages etc., in cold weather
condensation may form on the outer surfaces.
This is quite normal and is not a fault. Remove the condensation by wiping with
a dry cloth.
Final Check
Before you start using the freezer check that:
1. The interior is dry and air can circulate freely at the rear.
2. Clean the interior as recommended under "CLEANING AND CARE".
3. Insert the plug into the wall socket and switch on the electricity supply. Avoid
accidental disconnection by taping over the switch.
4. You will hear a noise as the compressor starts up. The liquid and gases sealed
within the refrigeration system may also give rise to noise, whether the
compressor is running or not which is quite normal.
5. If you going to store already frozen food open the freezer lid and check that the
freezer has reached the correct temperature. Then you can put in your already
frozen food. (See Storing Frozen Food page 7).
6. Do not load the appliance immediately after it is switched on. Wait until the
correct storage temperature has been reached. We recommend that you check
the temperature with an accurate thermometer (see Freezer Operation page 6).
Important Notes:
 If there is a power failure do not open the lid. Frozen food should not be affected
if the failure lasts for less than 36 hours. If the failure is longer, then the food
should be checked and eaten immediately or cooked and then refrozen.
 If you find that the lid of the chest freezer is difficult to open just after you have
closed it, don’t worry. This is due to the pressure difference which will equalize
and allow the lid to be opened normally after a few minutes.
Temperature adjustment
The temperature of the freezer is adjusted by means of the knob assembled on the
thermostat, position „MAX” being the lowest temperature.
The achieved temperatures can vary according to the conditions of use of the
appliance, such as: place of the appliance, ambient temperature, frequency of lid
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. 250C, the thermostat should be adjusted to the mild position.
We recommended that you check the temperature with a thermometer to ensure
that the Freezer is kept to the desired temperature. Remember you must take your
reading very quickly since the thermometer temperature will rise very rapidly after
you remove it from the freezer.
Please remember each time the lid is opened cold air escapes and the internal
temperature rises. Therefore never leave the lid open and ensure it is closed:
immediately after Food is put in or removed.
Indicator lights
The indicator light set is placed on the back side of the freezer for easy visibility.
By using the Thermostat Adjustment Knob (1), you can adjust the internal
temperature of the freezer.
Indicator lights mean the following:
2 - green LED – shows that the appliance is supplied with electric energy.
3 - red LED – lights if the temperature in the freezer is too high. The LED will
operate 45 minutes after putting into operation of the freezer, then it must go off. If
the LED comes on during the operation, this may mean that a defect has occured.
4 - orange LED - 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.
Prepackaged commercially frozen food should be stored in accordance with the
frozen food manufacturer’s instructions for a
freezer compartment.
To ensure that the high quality achieved by the frozen food manufacturer and the
food retailer is maintained the following should be remembered:
1. Put packets in the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase.
2. Do not exceed “Use By”, “Best Before” dates on the packaging.
Place fresh food to be frozen near the side walls to ensure fast freezing and away
from already frozen food, if possible.
Freezing capacity of your appliance in a 24 hours period is 12 kg (26.4 lb).
Never exceed this maximum capacity. If you are going to freeze fresh food in excess
of 2 kg. (4.5 Ib). Turn knob to Superfreeze position and wait for at least three hours
before placing the fresh food in the freezer. Do not freeze too large a quantity at any
one time.
The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen right through to the centre
as quickly as possible.
Take special care not to mix already frozen food and fresh food.

To start the defrosting procedure turn the thermostat knob to zero position.
Alternatively you may switch off the freezer at the socket outlet and pull out the
mains plug.
All food should be wrapped in several layers of newspaper and stored in a cool
place (e.g. fridge or larder).
Remove the freezer baskets. Leave the lid open. Containers of warm water may be
placed carefully in the freezer to speed up the defrosting.
Take out the frozen food, wrap it in several sheets of paper and put them in
refrigerator or a cool place.
Use a tray 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 tray. 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. Put the obstruction plug back in its place.
For a fast thaw please leave the door open.
Do not use pointed or sharp-edged objects such as knives or forks to remove the
