depending on the quantity of food to be frozen.
After the time has elapsed place the food to be frozen
in the appliance's two top compartments; if freezing
only a small amount of food, use the top
You should never freeze more than 20 Kg. of fresh
food at anyone time.
Once the food is completely frozen (which could take
up to 24 hours) the fast freeze function can be ended
manually at any time by depressing the button
again for more than one second. The yellow light
goes out. If the fast freeze function is not ended
manually, the appliance electronics switch off the fast
freeze function after 48 hours. The yellow light

compartments, so that the two top compartments can
be used for a further freezing operation. Only freeze

Do not allow fresh food to touch food which is already
During the freezing process, ensure that the freezer
door remains closed.
Frozen food storage
When you first start the freezer or if the freezer has
been out of use for some time, we advise you to run
your appliance for at least two hours in the «fast
freeze» mode before storing frozen food.
To obtain the best performance from this appliance,
we strongly recommend that you make sure that the
commercially frozen foodstuffs were adequately
stored by the retailer and, furthermore, be sure that
these frozen foodstuffs are transferred from the
foodstore to the consumer in the shortest possible
time (a temperature increase of the frozen food could
shorten its storage period).
It is also advisable not to exceed the storage period
indicated by the producer of the food.
Finally, do not open the door frequently or leave it
open longer than is absolutely necessary.
Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks
etc.), in the freezer.
Ice lollies, if consumed immediately after
removal from the freezer, can possibly result in
a low temperature skin burn.
Do not remove items from the freezer if your
hands are damp/wet, as this could cause skin
abrasions or "frost/freezer burns".
If there is a power failure during the storage of
frozen food, do not open the door during the
whole time of the power failure. If the freezer is
fully loaded, the frozen food will not be affected if
the power cut is of short duration; otherwise, it is
recommended to consume the food within a very
To remove the drawers, proceed as follows: pull the
drawer out until it comes to a stop, then tilt it upwards
The symbols on the drawers show different types of
The numbers indicate storage times in months for the
appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether the upper
or lower value of the indicated storage time is valid
depends on the quality of the foods and pre-treating
The freezer contains one cold accumulator which can
be found in the top compartment. The cold
accumulator increases storage times in the event of a
power cut or breakdown. It must be placed on top of
Removal of this unit will increase the capacity of the
fast freezing compartment but will reduce storage
times in the event of a power cut or breakdown.
Frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in
the fridge or at room temperature depending on the
time available. Small food items may even be cooked
from frozen; in this case cooking will take longer. Any
frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally
should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown
away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has
not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and
Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
