It is recommended to operate the appliance at the
highest position of the thermostatic control for
some hours so that it can reach the sufficient
storing temperature as soon as possible.
Never use sharp metal tools to scrape off frost
from the evaporator as you could damage it. Do
not use a mechanical device or any artificial
means to speed up the thawing process other
than those recommended by the manufacturer. A
temperature rise of the frozen food packs, during
defrosting, may shorten their safe storage life.
