Defrosting the freezer

A certain amount of frost will always form on the
freezer shelves and around the top compartment.

Important! Defrost the freezer when the frost layer
reaches a thickness of about 3-5 mm.

To remove the frost, do these steps:
1. Switch off the appliance.
2. Remove any stored food, wrap it in several layers

of newspaper and put it in a cool place.

3. Leave the door open.
4. When defrosting is completed, dry the interior

thoroughly and refit the plug.

5. Switch on the appliance.
6. Set the temperature regulator to obtain the maxi-

mum coldness and run the appliance for two or
three hours using this setting.

7. Reload the previously removed food into the com-


Important! Never use sharp metal tools to scrape off
frost from the evaporator 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.

Periods of non-operation

When the appliance is not in use for long periods, take
the following precautions:
disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
• remove all food
• defrost (if foreseen) and clean the appliance and all


• leave the door/doors ajar to prevent unpleasant


If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to check it
once in a while to prevent the food inside from spoiling
in case of a power failure.

What to do if…

During operation of the appliance some smaller but an-
noying trouble can often occur, which does not require
calling a technician out. In the following chart informa-
tion is given about them to avoid unnecessary charges
on service.

Important! The operation of the appliance goes with
certain sounds (compressor and circulating sound).
This not means a trouble, but a normal operation.

Important! The appliance operates discontinuously, so
the stopping of compressor does not mean being no
current. That is why you must not touch the electrical
parts of the appliance before breaking the circuit.


Possible cause


The compressor operates

The Temperature Regulator may be
set incorrectly

Set a warmer temperature

The door does not close tightly or it
is not shut properly

Check if the doors close well and the
gaskets are undamaged and clean

The door has been opened too fre-

Do not leave the door open longer
than necessary
