In the event of an abnormal temperature rise inside the freezer (e.g. after a
power cut) warning light (H) will start to flash and a buzzer will sound.
After the temperature has returned to normal, the warning light (H) will
continue to flash, although the buzzer has stopped.
When the alarm button (I) is pressed, the warmest temperature reached in
the compartment flashes on the display (D).
Sound signal alarm with open door
This appliance incorporates an alarm which gives off a sound signal when
the door remains open for more than 60 seconds. The signal can be stopped
by closing the door.
Starting up and temperature regulation
Please clean the appliance interior and all accessories prior to starting the
appliance. Plug in the appliance at the mains supply.
• Press the button ON/OFF (B). The freezer is switched on. The freezer is preset to run at -18°C. this temperature will be reached in a few hours.

Freezing and storing frozen food
1.
2.
10
You can use your freezer for freezing fresh food yourself.
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18 °C or colder
before freezing food.
• Please observe the freezing capacity given on the rating plate. The freezing capacity is the maximum quantity of fresh food that can be frozen
within a period of 24 hours. If you wish to freeze food several days in a
row, please observe a maximum capacity of only 2/3 to 3/4 of that on the
rating plate. The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen
right through to the core as quickly as possible.
• Allow warm food to cool down before freezing. The warmth will cause
increased ice formation and increase the power consumption.
• Please note the maximum storage times specified by the manufacturer.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into meals)
may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
• Containers with flammable gases or liquids can leak at low temperatures.
There is a risk of an explosion! Do not store any containers with flammable materials such as, for example, spray cans, fire extinguisher refill cartridges etc in the refrigerator/freezer.
• Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer. They can burst when
the contents freeze, high carbonate content drinks can even explode!
Never store lemonade, juices, beer, wine, sparkling wine etc. in the freezer.
• All foods must be packed air tight prior to freezing, so that they do not
dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of
other frozen goods occurs.
Important! Do not touch frozen food
with wet hands. Your hands could
stick to the food.
Place the packed food in the drawers.

• The symbols on the drawers show different types of frozen goods.
• 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 pre-treating before
freezing. The lower value applies to
foods with high fat content.
• By attaching the included index-tabs to the drawers, they can be marked
according to which type of foods the individual compartments contain.
Defrosting
The freezer will become progressively covered with frost. This should be
removed with the special plastic scraper provided, whenever the thickness
of the frost exceeds 4 mm. During this operation it is not necessary to switch off the power supply or to remove the foodstuffs.
However when the ice becomes very thick on the inner liner, complete
defrosting should be carried out as follows:

Freezing and storing frozen food
1.
2.

You can use your freezer for freezing fresh food yourself.
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18 °C or colder
before freezing food.
• Please observe the freezing capacity given on the rating plate. The freezing capacity is the maximum quantity of fresh food that can be frozen
within a period of 24 hours. If you wish to freeze food several days in a
row, please observe a maximum capacity of only 2/3 to 3/4 of that on the
rating plate. The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen
right through to the core as quickly as possible.
• Allow warm food to cool down before freezing. The warmth will cause
increased ice formation and increase the power consumption.
• Please note the maximum storage times specified by the manufacturer.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into meals)
may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
• Containers with flammable gases or liquids can leak at low temperatures.
There is a risk of an explosion! Do not store any containers with flammable materials such as, for example, spray cans, fire extinguisher refill cartridges etc in the refrigerator/freezer.
• Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer. They can burst when
the contents freeze, high carbonate content drinks can even explode!
Never store lemonade, juices, beer, wine, sparkling wine etc. in the freezer.
• All foods must be packed air tight prior to freezing, so that they do not
dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of
other frozen goods occurs.
Important! Do not touch frozen food
with wet hands. Your hands could
stick to the food.
