Energy Saving Tips
Install the appliance in a cool, dry room with adequate ventilation.
When installing the appliance, a space of at least 1 Ocm must be kept above and around the freezer to ensure adequate ventilation around the freezer.
Allow warm food to cool down before placing it in the appliance.
Do not keep the door of the appliance open for too long when putting food in or taking food out. The shorter time, for which the door is open, the less ice will form in the freezer.
Clean the rear of the freezer regularly. Dust increases energy consumption.
Do not set temperature colder than necessary.
Do not cover air vent openings.

Freezing and storage of fresh food
Food shall be stored with a space in between, which is good for refrigeration cycle.
Food shall be stored in different categories so that you can find it more easily.
Food shall be sealed before stored in the freezer to avoid water loss and smell taint.
It’s optional to pack food before putting it in the freezer. The outside of the packing must be dry to avoid bags sticking together. Packing materials should be odor-free, airtight, non poisonous and non-toxic.
We suggest to identify portion noting down information as follow:

  • Name of food
  • Weight of portion
  • Quantity (number of pieces)
  • Freezing date
  • Limit date of storage

See the diagram inside the freezer for common food storage time limit:

PIZZA BOX image 1

  1. stew, ice cream, sausages, bread
  2. Fish, shrimp, lamb, meat
  3. Vegetables, fruits, poultry, beef

Food should be fresh, mature and of good quality.
Fresh vegetables and fruits must be frozen, if possible, immediately after harvest to maintain the most nutrients, structure, texture, color and taste.
Hot food should be cooled down to room temperature prior to placing it in the freezer.
Only take the required amount of food from the freezer. Defrosted food cannot be re-frozen unless it is first cooked, otherwise it may be less edible.
Avoid placing fresh food directly in contact with deep frozen food. Deep frozen food could defrost and may not outlast the foreseen storage time.
To freeze very well, insert fast freezing function (see functions chapter) 2 hours before storing fresh food.
Do not load excessive quantities of fresh food in the freezer. It is better to refer to the freezing capacity of the freezer.
Usually 24 hours are enough to bring the freezing process to an end. After this time, function will be disabled automatically.
For freezing small quantity of food, it’s possible to stop the function manually after few hours to avoid useless energy consumption.

Insertion into a row of kitchen units image 5

The freezer can be inserted into a row of kitchen units. To match the freezer to the height of
the row of the units, a suitable stack cabinet can be added. When inserting the freezer into a row of standard kitchen units (max. depth 580 mm), the appliance can be installed directly next to the kitchen unit. The freezer door projects relative to the front of the kitchen unit by 34mm at the side and by SS mm in the middle of the freezer. It can be opened and closed perfectly as a result.

Important for the ventilation:
At the back of the stack cabinet, there has to be a ventilation duct of at least SO mm depth throughout the width of the stack cabinet.
The ventilation space under the ceiling has to be at least 300cm2
The larger the ventilation space, the more energy-saving the freezer is in operation.
If the freezer is installed with the hinges next to a wall, the distance between freezer and wall has to be at least SS mm. This corresponds to the projection of the handle when the door is open.
