SHOCK FREEZE
The "Shock Freeze" compartment is specifically
designed to freeze up to 2 kg of fresh food
extremely quickly. The ultra‑fast "Shock Freeze"
function minimizes the formation of ice crystals
inside the food as it freezes, thus ensuring it is of
the best possible quality when defrosted prior to
consumption. When the "Shock Freeze" function
is not active, the compartment can be used as
normal for traditional freezing or for the storage of
already frozen foods.
Note: When the Shock Freeze function is active
you may hear a humming sound. This is absolutely
normal and is caused by airflow that permits
optimum cold distribution inside compartment.
Activating and deactivating the "Shock Freeze"
function:
1. Make sure at least 12 hours have passed since
the last time the "Shock Freeze" function was
activated (if at all). Do not activate the function
more frequently than once every 12 hours.
2. Make sure that the "Fast Freeze" function is
notactive: "Shock Freeze" and "Fast Freeze"
functions cannot be active together at the
same time.
3. Empty the "Shock Freeze" compartment.
4. Activate the "Shock Freeze" function by briefly
touching the button
the icon lights up and the fans on the bottom
of the compartment come on, increasing the
flow of cold air and accelerating the freezing
process as a result.
5. Place the food to be frozen inside the
compartment, a few centimeters (min.
2 cm) away from the fans onthe back of the
compartment, so that cold air cancirculate.
6. To achieve maximum freezing speed,
we recommend not to deactivate the
"Shock Freeze"function until its automatic
deactivation, keeping closed the door
7. The "Shock Freeze" function is automatically
deactivated 4‑5 hours after its activation: the
indicator
switches off and the fans are
deactivated. The "Shock Freeze" function may
nevertheless be switched off at any time as
desired, by briefly pressing the button
the control panel: the indicator
and the fans are deactivated.
Attention:
‑ Incompatibility with the "Fast Freeze"
function

Freeze" and "Fast Freeze" functions cannot be
used at the same time. Therefore, if the "Fast
Freeze" function has been already engaged, it

‑ If the fans in the Shock Freeze compartment
do not start working
After the "Shock Freeze" function has been
activated, it may happen that the indicator
lights up as expected, but the fans do not start
working. This is normal and means that freezer
defrosting is in progress. At the end of the
defrosting phase (maximum duration: 1.5 hours),
the fans will automatically start working and the
"Shock Freeze" process will begin as normal.

amounts of food, the fast freeze function can be
deactivated after a few hours.
