• 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 stor-
age life of food.
• Frozen liquids, if consumed immedi-
ately 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.

7. CARE AND CLEANING

WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
7.1 Periodic cleaning
CAUTION!
Unplug the appliance before
carrying out any maintenance
operation.
Do not use detergents, abra-
sive products, highly perfumed
cleaning products or wax polishes
to clean the inner side of the ap-
pliance. Prevent damage to the
cooling system. There is no need
to clean the compressor area.
1. Switch off the appliance.
2. Regularly clean the appliance and the
accessories with lukewarm water and
neutral soap.
Clean the lid seal carefully.
3. Fully dry the appliance.
4. Connect the mains plug to the mains
socket.
5. Switch on the appliance.
6.2 Hints for storage of frozen
food
To obtain the best performance from this
appliance, you should:
• Make sure that the commercially fro-
zen 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.
• Do not open the lid 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.
7.2 Defrosting the freezer
CAUTION!
Never use sharp metal tools to
scrape off frost from the evapora-
tor 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.
Defrost the freezer when the frost layer
reaches a thickness of about 10-15 mm.
The amount of frost on the walls of the
appliance will be increased by high levels
of outer humidity and if the frozen food
is not wrapped properly.
The best time to defrost the freezer when
it contains no or only a little food.
1. Switch off the appliance.
2. Remove any stored food, wrap it in
several layers of newspaper and put
it in a cool place.
