freezer door remains closed.
Frozen food storage
When you first start the freezer or if the freezer has
been out of use for some time, we advise you to run
your appliance for at least 12 hours in the «fast
freeze» mode before storing frozen food.
To obtain the best performance from this appliance,
you should:
If large quantities of food are to be stored, remove all
drawers and baskets from appliance and place food
on the cooling shelves.
Pay careful attention not to exceed load limit stated
on the side of the upper section (where
applicable).
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the
manufacturer.
Finally, do not open the door frequently or leave it
open longer than is absolutely necessary.
Important
Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks etc.), in
the freezer compartment.
Ice Iollies, if consumed immediately after removal
from the freezer, can possibly result in a low
temperature skin burn.
Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands
are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or
“frost/freezer burns”.
Important
In the event of a power cut do not open the door. The
food in the freezer will not be affected if the power
cut is short and if the freezer is full. Should the food
begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must
not be re-frozen.

To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
flavour.
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and
then refrozen.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & Poultry): wrap in
polythene bags and place on the glass shelf on the
top of the salad crispers.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the
oven instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in
the oven.
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the salad crispers.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
Cold accumulators
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with one or more trays for
ice-cubes trays.
Fill the tray(s) 3/4 full to give the ice space to expand
and place them in the freezer compartment.
To release the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight
twist.
Do not use sharp or metallic instruments to remove
the trays from the freezer.
The freezer contains two cold accumulators. Place
the cold accumulators in the FAST FREEZE
compartment. The cold accumulators increase
storage times in the event of a power cut or
breakdown.
Removal of these units wll increase the capacity of
the fast freezing compartment but will reduce
storage times in the event of a power cut or
breakdown.
Freezing Calendar
Important
IF YOU ARE DISCARDING AN OLD APPLIANCE
THAT HAS A LOCK OR CATCH ON THE DOOR,
YOU MUST ENSURE THAT IT IS MADE

HINTS AND TIPS
GUARANTEE CONDITIONS
Energy Saving Advice
Normal Operating Sounds
•
•
•
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils
or tubing at the rear, and to the cooling
plate/evaporator.
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is
being pumped round, and you will hear a whirring
sound or pulsating noise from the compressor.
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you
will hear a faint ’click’ when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
Food Storage
•
Do not install the appliance close to sources of
heat, such as a boiler or radiator.
•
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
appliance are not obstructed.
•
•
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge.
•
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should be
placed in the fridge before being transferred to
the freezer.
To obtain the best performance from your fridgefreezer
•
Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.
•
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it
straight away. The use of an insulated container is
advisable. When you arrive home place the frozen
food in the freezer immediately.
•
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your refrigerator as short as possible.
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
•
Do not store food uncovered.
•
Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated
and labelled and used in date order to ensure
that food is consumed at its best.
•
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean, refer to Maintenance and Cleaning.
•
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food,
salt reduces the storage time.
•
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal .
•
8
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of
refrozen water droplets on the pack could indicate
that the product has not been kept at a suitable
temperature and that it may have lost its original
quality. Partially thawed food must not be
refrozen, it must be consumed within 24 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated by the
manufacturer.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages
before placing them in the freezer.
•
•
•
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will ensure
safer defrosting of foods and reduce the work of
the refrigeration unit.
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the
door from closing properly.

HINTS AND TIPS
GUARANTEE CONDITIONS
Energy Saving Advice
Normal Operating Sounds
•
•
•
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds
when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils
or tubing at the rear, and to the cooling
plate/evaporator.
When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is
being pumped round, and you will hear a whirring
sound or pulsating noise from the compressor.
A thermostat controls the compressor, and you
will hear a faint ’click’ when the thermostat cuts in
and out.
Food Storage
•
Do not install the appliance close to sources of
heat, such as a boiler or radiator.
•
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated
room and make sure that the air openings of the
appliance are not obstructed.
•
•
Always leave warm food to cool down to room
temperature before placing in the fridge.
•
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should be
placed in the fridge before being transferred to
the freezer.
To obtain the best performance from your fridgefreezer
•
Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.
•
Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it
straight away. The use of an insulated container is
advisable. When you arrive home place the frozen
food in the freezer immediately.
•
Keep the time between buying chilled food and
placing it in your refrigerator as short as possible.
•
Do not push food together too much, try to allow
air to circulate around each item.
•
Do not store food uncovered.
•
Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated
and labelled and used in date order to ensure
that food is consumed at its best.
•
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and
clean, refer to Maintenance and Cleaning.
•
Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food,
salt reduces the storage time.
•
Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing
bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and
provide an airtight seal .
•
8
Packaging which is swollen or has traces of
refrozen water droplets on the pack could indicate
that the product has not been kept at a suitable
temperature and that it may have lost its original
quality. Partially thawed food must not be
refrozen, it must be consumed within 24 hours.
Never exceed the storage times indicated by the
manufacturer.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by
packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages
before placing them in the freezer.
•
•
•
Thaw frozen food in the fridge. This will ensure
safer defrosting of foods and reduce the work of
the refrigeration unit.
Try to avoid keeping the door open for long
periods or opening the door too frequently as
warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the
door from closing properly.

To obtain the best performance, do not store warm
food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do
cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong
flavour.
Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and
then refrozen.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective
material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which
may obstruct the air circulation through them.
Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat
can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must
ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through.
Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & Poultry): wrap in
polythene bags and place on the glass shelf on the
top of the salad crispers.
Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling
water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in
the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing
any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the
oven instructions, particularly regarding the
placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in
the oven.
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are
some more useful hints:
Meat can only be stored safely in this way for
one or two days at the most.
Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly
cleaned and placed in the salad crispers.
Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special
airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be
stored in the bottle rack on the door.
Cold accumulators
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with one or more trays for
ice-cubes trays.
Fill the tray(s) 3/4 full to give the ice space to expand
and place them in the freezer compartment.
To release the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight
twist.
Do not use sharp or metallic instruments to remove
the trays from the freezer.
The freezer contains two cold accumulators. Place
the cold accumulators in the FAST FREEZE
compartment. The cold accumulators increase
storage times in the event of a power cut or
breakdown.
Removal of these units wll increase the capacity of
the fast freezing compartment but will reduce
storage times in the event of a power cut or
breakdown.

Frozen food storage
When you first start the freezer or if the freezer has
been out of use for some time, we advise you to run
your appliance for at least 12 hours in the «fast
freeze» mode before storing frozen food.
To obtain the best performance from this appliance,
you should:
If large quantities of food are to be stored, remove all
drawers and baskets from appliance and place food
on the cooling shelves.
Pay careful attention not to exceed load limit stated
on the side of the upper section (where
applicable).
Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the
manufacturer.
Finally, do not open the door frequently or leave it
open longer than is absolutely necessary.
Important
Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks etc.), in
the freezer compartment.
Ice Iollies, if consumed immediately after removal
from the freezer, can possibly result in a low
temperature skin burn.
Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands
are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or
“frost/freezer burns”.
Important
In the event of a power cut do not open the door. The
food in the freezer will not be affected if the power
cut is short and if the freezer is full. Should the food
begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must
not be re-frozen.
