BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE
Your new appliance is designed to be used in the household
and similar applications such as:
- kitchen areas in shops, offices and other working
- farm houses
- by clients in hotels, motels, residences, bed & breakfasts.
The product must only be used to store frozen food, to
freeze fresh food and to make ice.
Regulations require the appliance to be earthed. The
manufacturer declines all liability for injury to
persons or animals and for damage to property
resulting from failure to observe the above
procedures and reminders.
1. After unpacking, make sure that the appliance is undamaged
and that the door closes perfectly, with the gasket remaining
intact. Any damage must be reported to your retailer within
24 hours after delivery of the appliance.

• Before connecting the appliance to the mains supply,
ensure that the voltage corresponds to that given on the
rating plate located on the rear of the appliance.
• Electrical connections must be made in accordance
with local regulations.
• Unpack the appliance.
• Remove the 4 spacers inserted between the door
and the appliance. (Fig 3)
• Make sure the defrost water drain plug (if provided) is
correctly positioned (E).

SWITCHING ON THE APPLIANCE
• The appliance is factory set for optimum operation at a
temperature of -18°C.
• Plug in the appliance.
• The green LED lights up (if provided).
• Also the red LED (if provided) will switch on because
the temperature inside the appliance is not yet
sufficiently low for food storage. The red LED will
normally switch off within the first six hours after the
appliance is switched on.
• After connecting the appliance to the mains supply and
when the optimal temperature has been reached (this
phase takes about 1 hour during which the lid will not
open), ensure that the fast freeze button is not pressed
(the yellow LED, if provided, is off).
• Place food inside the product only when the red LED (if
provided) has switched off.
• Thanks to the efficient lid seal, the appliance lid will not
re-open easily immediately after closing. Wait a few
minutes before re-opening the lid of the appliance.
Use the thermostat to select the ideal storage temperature.
To adjust the internal temperature, proceed as follows:
• Turn the thermostat knob to 1 for a storage
temperature that is less cold.
• Turn the thermostat knob to 6 for a colder storage
• For partial loads, or when the load indicator is below
the "e" symbol inside the appliance, it is advisable to
move the thermostat to the lower position (on "e", if
present on the thermostat scale)
