Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or “frost/freezer burns”.
In the event of a power cut the food in the freezer will not be affected if the power cut is short and if the freezer is full. Do not open the door. Should the food begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must not be re-frozen .
Frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in the fridge or at room temperature depending on the time available. Small food items may even be cooked from frozen; in this case cooking will take longer.
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.
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.
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.
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.

The thermostat setting can vary as the temperature inside the refrigeration compartment depends on the following factors: – how often the door is opened – how much food is stored – position of the appliance
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.
Do not cover the shelves with any protective material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which may obstruct the air circulation through them.
To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are some more useful hints: Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & wild fowl): wrap in polythene bags and place on top of the salad crispers.
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 bottom 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.

You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils or tubing at the rear, to the cooling plate/evaporator or to the fixed freezer shelves.
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.
The walls of the refrigerator have runners so that the shelves can be positioned as desired .
For better use of space, the front half-shelves can lie over the rear ones.
To permit storage of food packages of various sizes, the door shelves can be adjusted in height. To do this proceed as shown in the diagram.
The top shelf can be removed for easier cleaning.

To obtain the best results from your appliance, neither hot foods nor liquids which may evaporate, should be placed in the larder compartment.
Keep the time between buying chilled food and placing it in your fridge 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.
Remove suspect food from your refrigerator and clean, refer to ‘Maintenance and Cleaning’.
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.
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.
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.
• • • • • •
Do not install the cabinet close to sources of heat, i.e. boiler or radiator.
Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated room and make sure that the air openings of the cabinet are not obstructed.
Avoid unnecessary frosting in the cabinet by packing all foodstuffs into airtight packages before placing them in the freezer.
Always leave warm food to cool down to room temperature before placing in the fridge or freezer.
Food which is to be frozen (when cool) should be placed in the fridge before being transferred to 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.
If there is a power failure during the storage of frozen foods, keep the door closed. If the temperature within your freezer should rise do not refreeze the food without checking it’s condition.
The following guidelines should assist you.
Once thawed should be discarded.
Fruit and Vegetables:
If soft should be cooked and used up.
