1.Insert the plug into the wall socket.
2.Turn the Temperature regulator clockwise to a medium setting.
3.The Pilot light will light up and a sound is on only for 2 sec. indicating that the appliance is powered.
4.The Alarm light will blink and the sound signal alarm will get on, indicating that the temperature inside the appliance is too high.
5.Push the FROSTMATIC switch and the sound signal alarm will get off.
6.Push the FROSTMATIC switch once again and the FROSTMATIC light will light up. The freezer will start to operate.
1.To turn off the appliance, turn the Temperature regulator to the "O" position and a sound is on only for 2 sec.
2.The pilot light will switch off.
The temperature within the appliance is controlled by the Temperature regulator situated at the bottom of the cabinet.
To operate the appliance, proceed as follows:
•turn the Temperature regulator toward lower settings to obtain the minimum coldness.
•turn the Temperature regulator toward higher settings to obtain the maximum coldness.
A medium setting is generally the most suitable.
However, the exact setting should be chosen keeping in mind that the temperature inside the appliance depends on:
•how often the door is opened
•the quantity of food stored
•the location of the appliance.
The FROSTMATIC function accelerates the freezing of fresh food and, at the same time, protects foodstuffs already stored from undesirable warming.
You can activate the FROSTMATIC function by pressing the FROSTMATIC switch. The FROSTMATIC light will light up.
It is possible to deactivate the function at any time by pressing FROSTMATIC switch. The FROSTMATIC light will switch off.
Excessive temperature alarm
If the temperature inside the freezer has risen to a point where the safe storage of frozen food is no longer ensured (for example due to an power failure) the Alarm light will blink and an acoustic alarm will sound.
1.Switch off the warning tone by pressing the FROSTMATIC switch. The FROSTMATIC light illuminates.
The Alarm light blinks until the required temperature has been reached again.
2.The FROSTMATIC switch can be released as soon as the Alarm light is off. The FROSTMATIC light goes out.
When the freezer is first switched on, the Alarm light blinks until the temperature has dropped to a safe level for the storage of frozen food.
Door open alarm
An acoustic alarm will sound when the door is left open for more than 90 seconds. When normal conditions are restored (door closed), the acoustic alarm will stop. In any case, press the Acoustic alarm reset switch to deactivate the acoustic alarm.
Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first time, wash the interior and all internal accessories with lukewarm water and some neutral soap so as to remove the typical smell of a brandnew product, then dry thoroughly.
Do not use detergents or abrasive powders, as these will damage the finish.
Freezing fresh food
The freezer compartment is suitable for freezing fresh food and storing frozen and deepfrozen food for a long time.
To freeze fresh food activate the Fast Freeze function at least 24 hours before placing the food to be frozen in the freezer compartment.
Place the fresh food to be frozen in the two top compartments.
The maximum amount of food that can be frozen in 24 hours is specified on the rating plate, a label located on the inside of the appliance.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours: during this period do not add other food to be frozen. After 24 hours, when the freezing process is completed, return to the required temperature (see "Temperature regulation").
Storage of frozen food
In the event of accidental defrosting, for example due to a power failure, if the power has been off for longer than 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).
Frozen Food 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 treating before freezing.
One or more cold accumulators are supplied in the freezer; these increase the length of time for which food will keep in the event of a power failure or breakdown.
HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
Hints for freezing
To help you make the most of the freezing process, here are some important hints:
10Care and cleaning
•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;
•only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly cleaned, foodstuffs;
•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;
•lean foods store better and longer than fatty ones; salt reduces the storage life of food;
•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.
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;
