Daily use






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

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).

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.


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.

Cold accumulators

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.


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;

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 warm water and bicarbonate of soda (5 ml to 0,5 liter of water)

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.

Once a year remove the ventilation grill at the base of the appliance and clean the air channels with 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 the freezer

A certain amount of frost will always form on the freezer shelves and around the top compartment.

Defrost the freezer when the frost layer reaches a thickness of about 3-5 mm. To remove the frost, follow the instructions below:

1.Turn the Temperature regulator to the "0" setting and disconnect the mains plug from the mains socket.

2.Remove any stored food, wrap it in several layers of newspaper and put it in a cool place.

3.Leave the door open.

4.Remove the three large drawers.

5.When defrosting is completed, remove the water that has collected in the small bottom

drawer and dry the interior thoroughly.

Insert the plug into the wall socket and turn the thermostat control to a medium setting. After let the appliance run for at least two hours in the "Fast Freeze" mode, replace the previously removed food into the compartments.

12 What to do if…

Cleaning the air channels

1.Remove the plinth (1), then the ventilation grid (2).

2.Clean the ventilation grid.

3.Carefully pull the air deflector out (3), checking that there is no water left from the defrosting.

4.Clean the lower part of the appliance with a vacuum cleaner.




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.defrost and clean the appliance and all accessories

4.leave the door/doors open to prevent unpleasant smells.
