Set default temperature -18 °C, it is optimal for food storage. The Display shows the set temperature.

The set temperature will be reached within 24 hours.

Fluctuations of some degrees around set temperature are normal and does not mean any fault in the appliance.

After a power failure the set temperature remains stored.

Red ALARM Indicator Light

Under normal operating conditions, the internal temperature of the freezer will ensure the long-term conservation of the stored food.

When such temperature rises above a certain level (-12 °C, for example due to an earlier power failure), the appliance will trigger an acoustic and light alarm. The light alarm is a blink red light (Red ALARM Indicator Light), while the acoustic alarm is an intermittent sound.

First use






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 compartments (indicated with graphics) are suitable for freezing fresh food and storing frozen and deep-frozen food for a long time.

To freeze fresh food activate the SUPER Quick Freeze function.

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.

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 2 hours on the higher settings.

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).


Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed at room temperature. Small pieces may even be cooked still frozen, directly from the freezer: in this case, cooking will take longer.


Normal Operating Sounds

You may hear a faint gurgling and a bubbling sound when the refrigerant is pumped through the coils or tubing. This is correct.

When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being pumped around and you will hear a whirring sound and a pulsating noise from the compressor. This is correct.

The thermic dilatation might cause a sudden cracking noise. It is natural, not dangerous physical phenomenon. This is correct.

When the compressor switches on or switches off, you will hear a faint "click" of the temperature regulator. This is correct.

10 Care and cleaning

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;

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;

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.



Unplug the appliance before carrying out any maintenance operation.

This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling unit; maintenance and recharging must therefore only be carried out by authorized technicians.

Periodic cleaning

The equipment has to be cleaned regularly:

clean the inside and accessories with lukewarm water and some neutral soap.

regularly check the door seals and wipe clean to ensure they are clean and free from debris.

rinse and dry thoroughly.

Care and cleaning





Do not pull, move or damage any pipes and/or cables inside the cabinet.

Never use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning products or wax polishes to clean the interior as this will damage the surface and leave a strong odour.

Clean the condenser (black grill) and the compressor at the back of the appliance with a brush or a vacuum cleaner. This operation will improve the performance of the appliance and save electricity consumption.

Take care of not to damage the cooling system.

Many proprietary kitchen surface cleaners contain chemicals that can attack/damage the plastics used in this appliance. For this reason it is recommended that the outer casing of this appliance is only cleaned with warm water with a little washing-up liquid added.

After cleaning, reconnect the equipment to the mains supply.

Defrosting of the freezer

The freezer compartment of this model, on the other hand, 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.

No-Frost technology

In order to facilitate the removal of the ice layer, the evaporator is assisted by electric heating during the defrosting procedure. The ventilator is in OFF position. The defrost water will drip in the tray placed at the compressor and will evaporate. In the course of the defrosting procedure (approx. 30 minutes) the evaporator becomes warm but it has no influence on the internal temperature.

The foods should be kept well-packed in order to avoid any moisture loss as a result of air circulation.

Do not obstruct the vent holes.

It is recommended to put all foods in the baskets in the freezer compartment.

Periods of non-operation

When the appliance is not in use for long periods, take the following precautions:

1.disconnect the appliance from electricity supply

2.remove all food

3.clean the appliance and all accessories

4.leave the lid open to prevent unpleasant smells.

If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to check it once in a while to prevent the food inside from spoiling in case of a power failure.

12 What to do if…



Before troubleshooting, disconnect the mains plug from the mains socket.

Only a qualified electrician or competent person must do the troubleshooting that is not in this manual.

There are some sounds during normal use (compressor, refrigerant circulation).

The appliance operates discontinuously, so the stopping of compressor does not mean being no current. That is why you must not touch the electrical parts of the appliance before breaking the circuit.
