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 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 refrigerator. 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 ● settings or reduced (colder) rotating the knob towards ● 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. 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). This function stops automatically after 54 hours. Put the foods to be frozen in the upper compartment of the freezer, as this is the coldest location. The function can be de-activated at any time by pressing key C (see paragraph "Activation of Functions"). 16
17 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. Cold accumulator The appliance is equipped with two cold accumulator. If there is a power outage, they will extend food conservation for a few hours. Thawing Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in the refrigerator 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. 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 compartment. Do not use metallic instruments to remove the trays from the freezer. 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.
18 HINTS Hints for freezing To help you make the most of the freezing process, here are some important hints: • the maximum quantity of food which can be frozen in 24 hrs. is shown on the rating plate; • the freezing process takes 24 hours. No further food to be frozen should be added during this period; • 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 aluminium foil or polythene and make sure that the 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; • water ices, 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-in date on each individual pack to enable you to keep tab of the storage time; • do not put carbonated liquids (fizzy drinks, etc.) in the freezer compartment as they may burst. Hints for storage of frozen food To obtain the best performance from this appliance, you should: • make sure that the commercially frozen foodstuffs were adequately stored by the retailer; • be sure that frozen foodstuffs are transferred from the foodstore to the freezer in the shortest possible time; • not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than absolutely necessary. • Once defrosted, food deteriorates rapidly and cannot be refrozen. • Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the food manufacturer. Freezing Calendar The symbols 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.
