food must be consumed quickly or cooked immediately and
then refrozen (after cooked).
Thawing
• Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can
be thawed in the freezer compartment or at room
temperature, depending on the time available for
this operation.
• Small pieces may even be cooked still frozen, directly
from the freezer. In this case, cooking will take longer.
Important!
In order to make the most of the volume of the frozen-food
storage compartment, the user can remove one or more
shelves or drawers out of the appliance, suitable to your
daily use. In order to save energy, do not take the bottom
freezer drawer out.
Noises during operation
The following noises are characteristic of refrigeration
appliances:
Clicks Whenever the compressor switches on or off, a click
can be heard.
Humming As soon as the compressor is in operation, you
can hear it humming.
Bubbling When refrigerant flows into thin tubes, you can
hear bubbling or splashing noises.
Splashing Even after the compressor has been switched off,
this noise can be heard for a short time.
Energy saving tips
• Do not install the appliance near cookers, radiators or
other sources of warmth.
• Do not open the door too often or leave the door open
any longer than necessary.
• Do not set temperature colder than necessary.
• Make sure the side plates and back plate of the
appliance are with some distance from the wall,
follow the instructions relevant to installation.
Hints for freezing
To help you make the most of the freezing process there are
some important hints:
• The freezing process takes 24 hours. No further food
to be frozen should be added during the period.
• Only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly cleaned
foodstuffs.
• Prepare food in small portions to enable it to be
rapidly and completely frozen and to make it possible
subsequently to thaw only the quantity required
• Wrap up the food in polythene and make sure that
packages are airtight;
• Do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to touch food which
is already frozen, thus avoiding a rise in temperature of
the latter.
• Lean foods store better and longer than fatty ones; salt
reduces the storage life of food.
• Blocks of ice, if consumed immediately after removal
from the freezer compartment, can possibly cause the
skin to be freeze burnt.
• It is advisable to show the freezing date on each
individual pack to enable you to keep tab of the
storage time.
7
Hints for storage of frozen food
To obtain the best performance from this appliance,
you should:
• Make sure that the commercially frozen foodstuffs were
stored correctly by the retailer.
• Be sure that frozen foodstuffs are transferred from the
food store to the freezer in the shortest possible time.
• Do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer
than absolutely necessary.
• Once defrosted, foods deteriorate rapidly and can not
be re-frozen.
• Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the
food manufacturer.
Defrosting
• The compartment of this appliance is “frost free”.
• This means that there is no buildup of frost when it is
running, neither on the internal walls nor on the foods.
• The absence of frost is due to the continuous circulation
of cold air inside the compartment, driven by an
automatically controlled fan.
Out of use for an extended period of time
• Remove all refrigerated packages.
• Remove the mains plug or switch off or disconnect the
electricity supply.
• Clean thoroughly (see section: Cleaning and Care)
• Leave the door open to avoid the build up of odours.
