If on the fast freeze function is on Operation After plugging the plug into the power outlet, if the display is not illuminated, press key (A), appliance on. As soon as the appliance is turned on, the following signals will appear on the control panel: • symbol (2) will be positive, indicating that the temperature is positive. • the temperature flashes, the background of the display is red and you will hear a buzzer. Press key (C) and the buzzer will go off (also see the section on "excessive temperature alarm"). Place the freezer thermostat control knob (D) in a middle position, and the appliance will be set up to provide the following temperature: roughly -18°C in the freezer. Switching off The appliance is shut off by holding down key (A) for more than 1 second. After this, a countdown of the temperature from -3 -2 -1 will be shown. When the appliance is shut off, display (B) also goes off. Activation of functions Each time key C is pressed, the following functions are activated in a clockwise direction: Symbol 4 : rapid freezing function. No Symbol: Normal operation
Use of the freezer compartment Temperature regulation The temperature is automatically regulated and can be increased to achieve a higher temperature (warmer) by rotating the thermostat knob toward l settings or reduced (colder) rotating the knob towards l settings. However, the exact setting should be chosen keeping in mind that the temperature inside the refrigerator depends on: • room temperature; • how often the door is opened; • the quantity of food stored; • location of appliance. We suggest setting the knob to the middle position to obtain an internal temperature of approximately - 18°C, which guarantees proper freezing and conservation of the frozen foods. Freezing fresh food The freezer compartment is suitable for long term storage of commercially frozen food, and for freezing fresh food. The maximum quantity of foods to freeze in 24 hours is shown on the serial number plate. To freeze fresh foods, you will need to activate the rapid freezing function. Press key C (several times if necessary) until the corresponding icon appears After a pre-cooling period of 24 hours, place the foods in the freezer. The freezing process takes 24 hours. During this period do not put other foods in the freezer. This function stops automatically after 52 hours. Put the foods to be frozen in the two top compartments. The function can be de-activated at any time by pressing key C (see paragraph "Activation of Functions"). Storage of frozen food When first starting-up or after a period out of use, before putting the products in the compartment let the appliance run at least 12 hours on the fast freeze setting. 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 cooling shelves. Pay careful attention not to exceed load limit stated on the side of the upper section (where applicable). Important In the event of accidental defrosting, for example due to a power failure, if the power has been off for longer that the value shown in the technical characteristics chart under “rising time”, the defrosted food must be consumed quickly or cooked immediately and then refrozen (after cooling). Excessive temperature alarm An increase in the temperature in the freezer compartment (for example due to an electricity outage) is indicated by: - flashing temperature; - freezer compartment flashing (symbol 2); - red illumination of display; - sounding of buzzer. - alarm symbol. When normal conditions are restored: - the acoustic signal shuts off; - the temperature value continues to flash; - the display illumination remains red. When you press key "C" to de-activate the alarm, the highest temperature reached in the compartment appears on indicator 2 for approximately 5 seconds. At this point the flashing stops and the display illumination changes over from red to white.
19 TIPS Tips for freezing fresh foods To help you get the best out of the freezing process, here are a few hints: ■ Freeze only good-quality, fresh and well-cleaned foods. Split them into small portions to speed up freezing and avoid having to thaw more food than you require. It is in fact important to remember that once the foods have thawed out, they deteriorate fast. ■ Another point to remember is that lean foods keep better and longer than fatty foods. Salt too reduces storage times. ■ Wrap the foods in foil or polythene ½lm, ensuring that the wrapping adheres closely to the food and is well sealed. In this way, by avoiding contact with air, the colour ¾avour and nutritional value of the foods remain intact. ■ During the freezing process, do not add further foods for freezing and do not open the freezer door. ■ The foods for freezing should not be placed in contact with already frozen foods, but put in the special freezing compartment. This will stop the temperature of already frozen foods from rising. ■ Never put ½zzy drinks in the freezer as they might well burst. ■ In addition, never put hot foods or liquids in the freezer compartment and take care not to ½ll recipients up to the brim if they are covered with a lid. Tips for storage of commercially frozen food To get the best out of your freezer, in the case of storage of commercially frozen food you should ensure that: ■ the products have been correctly stored by the retailer; ■ that there is only a very short time between when you purchase the products and when you put them in the freezer; ■ you do not store products for longer than the time speci½ed by the food manufacturer; ■ Avoid opening the door too frequently and when you do open it, leave it open only for as long as is strictly necessary; ■ A word of warning about ice lollies: they should not be eaten straight out of the freezer as this might cause cold burns. ■ It is a good idea to mark the packs with the date on which freezing started so that you can keep a check on storage periods. Ice-cube production This appliance is equipped with one or more trays for the production of ice-cubes. Fill these trays with water, then put them in the freezer. Do not use metallic instruments to remove the trays from the freezer. Thawing Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in the refrigerator 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. Freezing Calendar The symbols on the drawers show different types of frozen goods. Door open acoustic alarm An acoustic alarm will sound when the door is left open for more than 1 minute. The door open alarm conditions are indicated by: - flashing symbol (1); - red display illumination; - beeping sound. Press the button (C) to stop the acoustic alarm. When normal conditions are restored (door closed): - the acoustic alarm will stop. 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.
20 Periodic cleaning Never use metal objects for clearing your appliance as it may get damaged. Clean the inside with warm water and bicarbonate of soda. Rinse and dry thoroughly. To guarantee a safe operation of the fridge, once a year remove the ventilation grille at the base and clean the air channels with a vacuum cleaner. Unplug the appliance before carrying out any maintenance operation. Warning This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling unit maintenance and recharging must therefore only be carried out by authorised technicians. MAINTENANCE CUSTOMER SERVICE AND SPARE PARTS If the appliance is not functioning properly, check that: • the plug is firmly in the wall socket and the mains power switch is on; • there is an electricity supply (find out by plugging in another appliance); • the thermostat knob is in the correct position. • If there are water drops on the bottom of the cabinet, check that the defrost water drain opening is not obstructed (see “Defrosting” section). • If your appliance is still not working properly after making the above checks, contact the nearest service centre. To obtain fast service, it is essential that when you apply for it you specify the model and serial number of your appliance which can be found on the guarantee certificate or on the rating plate located inside the appliance, on the bottom left-hand side. Defrosting The freezer compartment is a "no frost" type. This means that there is no buildup of frost when it is in operation, 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.
