In the event of an abnormal temperature rise inside the
freezer (e.g. power cut) warning light (H) will start to flash
and a buzzer will sound.
After the temperature has returned to normal, the warning
light (H) will continue to flash, although the buzzer has
stopped.
When the alarm button (I) is pressed, the warmest tem-
perature reached in the compartment flashes on the indi-
cator (D).
If the power has been off for a long time, frozen food
should be consumed as quickly as possible, or cooked
and then re-frozen.

Operation

ON/OFF (B). The freezer is switched on.
The freezer is pre-set to run at -18°C. this temperature will
be reached in a few hours.
As soon as the appliance is switched on the temperature
indicator (D) shows the current temperature inside the
freezer, the alarm reset light (H) flashes and a buzzer
sounds. Press the alarm reset button (I). The buzzer stops
and the alarm light (H) continues to flash until the setting
temperature is reached.

Freezing fresh food
The 4-star compartment is suitable for long term storage
of commercially frozen food and for freezing fresh food.
To freeze fresh foods allow it to run on the fast freeze set-
ting for at least 24 hours before loading food.
Place the food to be frozen in the compartments as shown
in figure.

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 for at least two hours on the fast freeze setting, then
turn the thermostat knob to the normal operating position.
Important
If there is a power failure when food is in the freezer,
do not open the door of the freezer compartment. The
frozen food will not be affected if the power cut is of
short duration (up to 6-8 hours) and the freezer com-
partment is full, otherwise, it is recommended that the
food should be used within a short time (a tempera-
ture increase of the frozen food shortens its safe stor-
age period).

Thawing

Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can be
thawed in the refrigerator compartment or at room tem-
perature, depending on the time available for this opera-
tion.
Small pieces may even be cooked still frozen, directly
from the freezer: in this case, cooking will take longer.
Ice-cube production
This appliance is equipped with one or more trays for
the production of ice-cubes. Fill these trays with water,
then put them in the freezer compartment.
Do not use metallic instruments to remove the trays
from the freezer.
