around the appliance to ensure free air
Fit the two plastic wall spacers supplied with
the appliance rotating 1/4 turn to the condenser
at the back of the appliance (Fig. 3).
• The appliance should be located on a level
surface. The two front feet can be adjusted as
required. To ensure that your appliance is

turning clockwise or counter-clockwise, until
the product is in firm contact with the floor.
Correct adjustment of feet avoids excessive
vibration and noise.

Prior to startup
Before you start operating your appliance, the
following points should be re-checked for
• Is the appliance standing level on the floor?
• Is there sufficient space for good air
• Is the interior clean? (Also see the section
‘Cleaning and care’)
• Set the thermostat knob half way between
1 and Max.
• Now connect the appliance to the mains.
Do not place foodstuff into the appliance until
the temperature has reached the desired level.

1 = Lowest cooling setting (Warmest setting)
MAX. = Highest cooling setting (Coldest and
fast freeze option setting)
Please choose the setting according to the
desired temperature.
The interior temperature also depends on
ambient temperature, the frequency with which
the door is opened and the amount of foods
kept inside.
Frequently opening the door causes the interior
temperature to rise.
For this reason, it is recommended to close
the door again as soon as possible after use.
The normal storage temperature of your
appliance should be -18 °C (0 °F). Lower
temperatures can be obtained by adjusting
the thermostat knob towards Position MAX.
We recommend checking the temperature
with a thermometer to ensure that the storage
compartments are kept to the desired
temperature. Remember to take the reading
immediately since the thermometer
temperature will rise very rapidly after you
remove it from the freezer.

Freezing food
The freezing compartment is marked with
this symbol.
You can use the appliance for freezing fresh
food as well as for storing pre-frozen food.
Please refer to the recommendations given
on the packaging of your food.
Do not freeze fizzy drinks, as the bottle may
burst when the liquid in it is frozen.
Be careful with frozen products such as
coloured ice-cubes.
Do not exceed the freezing capacity of your
appliance in 24 hours. See the rating label.
In order to maintain the quality of the food, the
freezing must be effected as rapidly as possible.
Thus, the freezing capacity will not be
exceeded, and the temperature inside the
freezer will not rise.
Keep the already deep-frozen food always
separated with freshly placed food.
When deep-freezing hot food, the cooling
compressor will work until the food is completely
frozen. This can temporarily cause excessive
cooling of the refrigeration compartment.
If you find the freezer door 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 door to open normally
after a few minutes.
You will hear a vacuum sound just after closing
the door. This is quite normal.
Do not close air flow channels while loading.
Making ice cubes
Fill the ice-cube tray 3/4 full with water and
place it in the freezer.
As soon as the water has turned into ice, you
can take out the ice cubes.
Never use sharp objects such as knives or
forks to remove the ice cubes. There is a risk
of injury!
Let the ice cubes slightly thaw instead, or put
the bottom of the tray in hot water for a short
(Fig. 4)
Fast freeze
If large amounts of fresh food are going to be
frozen, adjust the control knob to max. 24
hours before putting the fresh food in the fast
freeze compartment.
It is strongly recommended to keep the knob
at max position at least 24 hours to freeze
maximum amount of fresh food declared as
freezing capacity. Take special care not to mix
frozen food and fresh food.
Remember to turn the thermostat knob back to
its previous position once food has frozen.
Defrosting of the appliance
The appliance defrosts automatically.

Cleaning and care
Interior and Exterior Surfaces
Always unplug the power cable or switch
off the circuit breaker before cleaning.
Clean the exterior using lukewarm water and
a mild detergent.
Never use detergents, abrasive or acidic
Wipe the inside compartment dry.
Be careful to prevent water from getting into
contact with the electrical connections of the
temperature control or the interior light.
If the appliance is not going to be used for a
long period of time, unplug the power cable
and remove all food. Clean the appliance and
keep the door open.
To preserve the appearance of your appliance,
you can polish the exterior and the door
accessories with a silicone wax.
Clean the condenser at the back of the
appliance once a year using a brush or a
vacuum cleaner. Dust build-up leads to
increased energy consumption.
Inspect the door gasket at regular intervals.
Clean with water only, and wipe totally dry.
Cleaning of the accessories
To clean a drawer, pull it out as far as possible,
tilt it upwards and then pull it out completely.
Practical tips and notes
• Always leave food to thaw in a container that
allows the thawing water to run off.
• Do not exceed the maximum allowable
freezing capacity when freezing fresh food
(see the section "Freezing")
• Do not give children ice-cream and ices directly
from the freezer.
The low temperature may cause cold burns on
• Never re-freeze defrosted food; defrosted food
must be consumed within 24 hours. Only food
that has been cooked can be refrozen.
• Do not take out frozen food with wet hands.
• Store only fresh and impeccable food.
• Always use appropriate packaging material
to avoid odour penetration or degradation of
the food.
• Store commercially frozen food in accordance
with the instructions given on the packaging.
• Freeze cooked food in small quantities. This
ensures rapid freezing and maintains the
quality of the food.
• Do not freeze liquids in tightly closed bottles
or containers.
The bottles/containers may burst at low
• Carry pre-frozen food in suitable bags and
place it in your freezer as soon as possible.
Always defrost food in the fridge compartment.

Normal operating noises
Various functional noises are completely
normal due to the operation of the cooling
system of your appliance;
• Gurgling, hissing, boiling or bubbling noises
are caused by the refrigerant, circulating inside
the cooling system. These noises can still be
heard for a short period of time after the
compressor shuts off.
• Sudden, sharp cracking or popping noises
are caused by the expansion and contraction
of the inside walls or some components inside
the cabinets.
• Buzzing, whirring, pulsating or high-pitched
humming noises are caused by the
compressor. These noises are slightly louder
at the start-up of the compressor and reduce
when the appliance reaches the operating
Also to avoid disturbing vibrations and noises
make sure that;
• Your appliance is standing level on all four
• Your appliance is not in contact with the
walls, surrounding objects or kitchen cabinets
and furniture.
• Cans, bottles or dishes inside the appliance
are not touching and hitting each other.
• All shelves and bins are mounted correctly
inside the appliance cabinets and doors.
What, if....
1- The appliance will not work, even though
it is switched on.
• Check if the power cable is properly
• Check if the mains supply is in order, or if a
circuit breaker has been tripped!
• Check the temperature control for correct
2- There is a power failure.
Your freezer is suitable for the long-term
storage of frozen food that are available
commercially and also can be used to freeze
en en
and store fresh food.
Do not open the door in case of a power failure.
For a rated appliance, frozen food in
the freezer compartment will not be affected
if the power failure lasts shorter than the
“Conservation Time From Failure (hours)”
mentioned in the rating label.
If the power failure is longer than the
“Conservation Time From Failure (hours)”,
then the food should be checked and either
consumed immediately or cooked and then
3- Other possible malfunctions
Not every malfunction is a case for our
customer service. Very often, you can easily
resolve the problem without requesting service.
Before requesting service, please check if the
malfunction has been caused by an operating
error. If this is the case, and a service has
been requested, a service charge will be levied
even if the appliance is still under guarantee.
If the problem persists please contact your
dealer or customer service.
Please have the type and serial number of
your appliance ready when calling. The rating
label is located inside the appliance.
Reversing the door
