can never go beyond -18 °C, since temperature higher
than this can deteriorate frozen foods.
It is practical to make sure of faultless operation of
the appliance daily so as to notice possible failure in
time and prevent deterioration of frozen foods.
After a power failure the product will restart and the
quick freeze function will be switched on. If not
