ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

Before you insert the plug into the wall socket make sure that the voltage and the frequency shown in the rating label at the back wall of the appliance corresponds to your electricity supply. Rating label is on the apper left side of the back wall. We recommend that this appliance is connected to the mains supply via a suitably switched and fused socket in a readily accessible position. Should the mains lead of the appliance becom damaged or should it need replacing at any time, it must bee replaced by a special purpose made mains lead which can only be obtained from a BEKO Authorized Service Agent.

WARNING! THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED

If the fitted moulded plug is not suitable for your socket, then plug should cut off and an appropriate plug fitted. Destroy the old plug which is cut off as a plug with bared cord could cause a shock hazard if inserted into a socket elsewhere in the house.

The moulded plug on this appliance incorporates a 13 A fuse. Should the fuse need to be replaced an ASTA approved BS 1362 fuse of the same rating must be used. Do not forget to refit the fuse cover. In the event of losing the fuse cover the plug must not be used until a replacement fuse cover has been fitted. Colour of the replacement fuse cover must be the same colour as that visible on the pin face of the plug. Fuse covers can be obtained from a BEKO Authorised Service

Agent.

STARTING

Final Check

Before you start using the freezer check that:

1. The interior is dry and air can circulate freely at the rear.

2.Clean the interior as recommended under "CLEANING AND CARE.”

3.Insert the plug into the wall socket and switch on the electricity supply. Avoid accidental disconnection by tqplng over the switch. Green and red lights will glow and the compressor will start runnin (See Temperature Control andAdjustment).

4.You will hear a noise compressor starts up. The liquid and gases sealed within the refrigeration system may also give rise to noise, whether the compressor is running or not which is quite normal.

5.If you are going to store already frozen food open the freezer lid and check that the freezer has reached the correct temperature. Then you can put in your already frozen food. (See Storing Frozen Food page 8).

6.If you are going to freeze fresh Food, you should turn the thermostat knob to SUPER and wait for at least three hours before putting in your fresh food to be frozen. (See Freezing Fresh Food, Page 8).

7.We recommend that you set the thermostat knob at 4 and monitor the temperature to ensure the appliance maintains desired storage temperatures (see section Temperature Control and Adjustment section).

8.Do not load the appliance immediately after it is switched on. Wait until the correct storage temperature has been reached. We recommend that you check the temperature with an accurate thermometer (see; Temperature Control and Adjustment).

Importont Notes:

If there is a power failure do not open the lid. Frozen food should not be affected if the failure lasts for less than 28 hours. If the failure is longer, then the food should be checked and either eaten immediately or cooked and then re-frozen.

lf you iind that the lid of the chest freezer is difficult foopen just after you have closed it, don't worry. This is due to the pressure difference which will equalize and allow the lid to be opened normally ofter a few minutes

TEMPERATURE CONTROL AND ADJUSTMENT

Temperature is controlled by the thermostat knob which is located at the front of the cabinet. "SUPER" is the coldest setting (see the diagram below). The normal storage temperature of your appliance should be -18 °C (0 °F). Lower temperatures may be obtained by adiusting the thermostat knob toward "SUPER" position.

We recommended that you check the temperature with a thermometer to ensur that the Freezer is kept to the desired temperature. Remember you must take reading very quickly since the thermometer temperature will rise very rapidly you remove it horn the freezer.

Please remember each time the lid is opened cold air escapes and the internal temperature rises. Therefore never leave the lid open and ensure it is closed:

immediately after Food is put in or removed.

When you set the thermostat knob to [OFF] position, the appliance will be switched off.

STORING FROZEN FOOD

Prepackaged commercially frozen should be stored in accordance with the frozen food manufacturer's instructions for a frozen food storage compartment.

To ensure that the high quality achieved by the frozen food manufacturer and the food retailer is maintained the following should be remembered:

1.Put packets in the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase.

2.Do not exceed "Use By", "Best Before" dates an the packaging.

3.If there are no instructions on the packet, refer to the storage life guide on the lid liner.

FREEZING FRESH FOOD

 

Place fresh food to be frozen near the

 

side walls to ensure fast freezing and

 

away from already frozen food, if

 

possible.

 

Freezing capacity of your appliance

1

in a 24 hours period is 8 kg (18 Ib).

Never exceed this maximum capacity

 

If you are going to freeze fresh food

 

in excess of 2 kg. (4.5 Ib) turn the

 

thermostat knob to "SUPER" and wait

 

for at least three hours before placing

 

the fresh food in the freezer. Remember

2

to return the knob to its "4" setting

after freezing. Do not freeze too large

 

a quantity at one time.

 

The quality of the food is best preserved

 

when it is frozen right through to the

 

centre as quickly as possible.

 

Take special care not to mix

 

already frozen food and fresh

 

food.

FROZEN FOOD SYMBOLS

AND FREEZER CALENDER

Food symbols are shown on the lid liner. Refer to storage life guide whenever required

The figures next to food symbols represent the safe storage-life,in months.

DEFROSTING

Defrost twice a year or when a frost layer of around 7 mm (1/4") has formed.

To start the defrostins procedure turn the thermostat knob to zero position, alternatively you may, switch off the freezer at the socket outlet and pull out the mains plug.

All food should be wrapped in several layers of newspaper and stored in a cool place (e.g. fridge or larder).

Remove the freezer basket. Leave the lid open. Containers of warm water may be placed carefully in the freezer to speed up the defrosting.

Do not use pointed or sharp-edgedobjects such as knives or forks to remove the frost.

Never use hairdryers, electrical heaters or other such electrical appliances for defrosting.

When defrosting has finished sponge out defrost water which collects at the bottom of the freezer and dry the interior thoroughly. Set the thermostat at "SUPER" position and leave it on for about three hours.
