BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE Your new appliance is designed to be used in the household and similar applications such as: - kitchen areas in shops, offices and other working environments - farm houses - by clients in hotels, motels, residences, bed & breakfasts. The product must only be used to store frozen food, to freeze fresh food and to make ice. Regulations require the appliance to be earthed. The manufacturer declines all liability for injury to persons or animals and for damage to property resulting from failure to observe the above procedures and reminders. 1. After unpacking, make sure that the appliance is undamaged and that the door closes perfectly, with the gasket remaining intact. Any damage must be reported to your retailer within 24 hours after delivery of the appliance. 2. Wait at least two hours before switching the appliance on in order to ensure the refrigerant circuit is fully efficient. 3. Installation and electrical connection must be carried out by a qualified technician, according to the manufacturer’s instructions and local safety regulations. 4. Clean the inside of the appliance before using it. • Before connecting the appliance to the mains supply, ensure that the voltage corresponds to that given on the rating plate located on the rear of the appliance. • Electrical connections must be made in accordance with local regulations. INSTALLATION • Unpack the appliance. • Remove the 4 spacers inserted between the door and the appliance. (Fig 3) • Make sure the defrost water drain plug (if provided) is correctly positioned (E). • For optimum appliance operation and to avoid damage when the door is opened, leave a space of at least 7 cm from the rear wall and 7 cm at the sides. (Fig. 4) • Fit the accessories (if provided). Switching on the appliance • The appliance is factory set for optimum operation at a temperature of -18°C. • Plug in the appliance. • The green LED lights up (if provided). • Also the red LED (if provided) will switch on because the temperature inside the appliance is not yet sufficiently low for food storage. The red LED will normally switch off within the first six hours after the appliance is switched on. • After connecting the appliance to the mains supply and when the optimal temperature has been reached (this phase takes about 1 hour during which the lid will not open), ensure that the fast freeze button is not pressed (the yellow LED, if provided, is off). • Place food inside the product only when the red LED (if provided) has switched off. • Thanks to the efficient lid seal, the appliance lid will not re-open easily immediately after closing. Wait a few minutes before re-opening the lid of the appliance. Temperature Adjustment Use the thermostat to select the ideal storage temperature. To adjust the internal temperature, proceed as follows: • Turn the thermostat knob to 1 for a storage temperature that is less cold. • Turn the thermostat knob to 6 for a colder storage temperature. • For partial loads, or when the load indicator is below the “e” symbol inside the appliance, it is advisable to move the thermostat to the lower position (on “e”, if present on the thermostat scale) FREEZING FOOD Preparation of fresh food for freezing • Before freezing, wrap and seal fresh food in: aluminium foil, cling film, air and water-tight plastic bags, polyethylene containers with lids, provided they are suitable for freezing foods. • Food must be fresh, mature and of prime quality in order to obtain high quality frozen food. • Fresh vegetables and fruit should preferably be frozen as soon as they are picked to maintain the full original nutritional value, consistency, colour and flavour. • Always leave hot food to cool before placing in the appliance. Freezing fresh food • Place foods to be frozen in direct contact with the walls of appliance (Fig. 5): A) - foods to be frozen, B) - foods already frozen. • Avoid placing foods to be frozen in direct contact with food already frozen.
• For best and fastest freezing, foods should be split into small portions; this will also be useful when the frozen items are to be used. 1. At least 24 hours before storing fresh food in the appliance, press the fast freeze button (4). 2. Place the food to be frozen and keep the lid of the appliance closed for 24 hours. The fast freeze function automatically deactivates after about 50 hours. FOOD STORAGE Refer to the table on the appliance. Classification of frozen foods Load and classify the frozen foods; it is advisable to indicate the storage date on the packs, to ensure consumption before the expiry dates listed in months in Fig. 6 for each type of food. Advice for storing frozen food When buying frozen food, make sure that: • The packaging is intact (food in damaged containers may have deteriorated). If a package is swollen or has damp patches, the product may not have been stored in optimum conditions and therefore undergone partial defrosting. • When shopping, leave frozen food purchases until last and carry them in a thermally insulated bag. • On arriving home, immediately place the frozen food in the appliance. • Avoid or minimise temperature variations. Observe the expiry date on the packaging. • Always follow the storage instructions on frozen food packages. Note: • Eat fully or partially defrosted foods immediately. Do not refreeze unless the food is cooked after it has thawed. Once cooked, the food can be refrozen. • In case of a prolonged power failure: Do not open the appliance door, except to place ice packs (if provided) over the frozen foods on the right and left side of the appliance. This will slow down the rise in temperature. PRECAUTIONS AND SUGGESTIONS • During installation, make sure the appliance does not damage the power cable. • Do not store glass containers with liquids inside the product as they may break. • Do not eat ice cubes or ice lollies immediately after taking them out of the appliance as they may cause cold burns. • Before carrying out any maintenance or cleaning, always unplug the appliance or disconnect the power supply. • Do not install the appliance in places exposed to direct sunlight or near heat sources in order to avoid increasing power consumption. • Do not put aerosol spray cans or recipients containing propellants or flammable substances in the appliance. • Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable liquids and gases in the vicinity of this or any other domestic appliance. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion. • Install the appliance in a perfectly horizontal position, on a floor strong enough to take its weight and in an area suitable for its size and use. • Install the appliance in a dry, well-ventilated place. The appliance is set for operation at specific ambient temperature ranges, according to the climatic class indicated on the data plate located at the rear of the product (Fig. 7). The appliance may not work properly if it is left for a long time at a temperature outside the specified range. • It is advisable to leave the appliance connected if left empty even for short periods. • Be careful not to damage the floors when you move the appliance (e.g. parquet). To facilitate product handling, it is advisable to empty it beforehand, if possible. Note: The appliance must be handled and installed by two or more persons. • Do not use mechanical devices or any means other than those recommended and/or supplied by the manufacturer to speed up the defrosting process. • Do not use electrical appliances inside the product, unless such appliances are specifically recommended by the manufacturer. • The bulb used inside the appliance is specifically designed for domestic appliances and is not suitable for general room lighting within the home (EC Regulation 244/2009). • This appliance must not be used by children under 8 years of age, or by people with limited physical, sensory or mental abilities or without experience and knowledge of it, unless instructed in its use by those responsible for their safety. • Do not allow children to play or hide inside the product: risk of becoming trapped inside and suffocating. • Power cable modification or replacement must only be carried out by qualified personnel or After-sales Service. • Do not use extension leads or adapters. • Electrical disconnection must be possible either by unplugging the appliance or by means of a double- pole switch located upline from the socket. • Ensure that the voltage indicated on the appliance data plate corresponds to the domestic supply voltage. • Do not ingest the contents (non-toxic) of the ice packs (if provided). • Restrict the number of times you open the door. • This appliance features “skin condenser” technology: the condensing unit is integrated into the walls of the freezer. For this reason the side and front walls of the product may become hot while the product is running. This is entirely normal and also reduces the risk of condensation forming in particularly critical environmental conditions (see paragraph “Troubleshooting guide”).
APPLIANCE DEFROSTING The appliance should be defrosted when the thickness of ice on the walls reaches 5-6 mm. • Disconnect the appliance from the power supply. • Remove food from the appliance and put it in a very cool place or a thermally insulated bag. • Leave the appliance door open. • Remove the internal defrost water drain plug (depending on model) (Fig. 8). • Remove the external defrost water drain plug (depending on model) and reposition it as shown in fig. 8. • Use the separator (depending on model) inside the product as a recipient for any remaining water, (D) as shown in fig. 8. If there is no separator, use a shallow container. • Defrosting can be sped up by using a spatula to detach the frost from the appliance walls. • Remove the frost from the bottom of the appliance. • In order to avoid permanent damage to the appliance interior, do not use pointed or sharp metal instruments to remove the ice. • Do not use abrasive products or heat up the interior artificially. • Dry the inside of the appliance thoroughly. • Refit the plug after defrosting. CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE • Remove the frost from the upper edges (see Troubleshooting Guide). • Clean the inside after defrosting, using a sponge dampened with warm water and/or mild detergent. • Clean the side vent (if provided). Unplug the appliance before carrying out maintenance operations. Do not use abrasive products, scourers or stain-removers (e.g. acetone, trichloroethylene) to clean the appliance. To obtain the best results from your appliance, carry out cleaning and maintenance at least once a year. HANGING THE LID LIGHT BULB (if provided) • Disconnect the appliance from the mains power supply. • Remove the diffuser by following the sequence of steps shown in the figure. • Unscrew the light bulb and replace it with an identical bulb of the same wattage and voltage. • Refit the diffuser and plug in the appliance.
