Please ensure that there is a small `air-gap’ between the condenser on the rear of the appliance and the rear wall. Do not place or store heavy items on the top of this appliance. Ensure that the appliance is positioned on a firm flat floor. This appliance must be level. Adjust the level by screwing the adjustable feet up or down (use your fingers or a suitable spanner). Ensure that the appliance is upright and both feet are in firm contact with the floor so that the cabinet is stable. Connect the plug to an adjacent 13amp socket outlet and ensure that the appliance is not standing on the supply cable.

It is essential to ensure that refrigerant tubes are not damaged during transportation and the installation of the appliance. If the refrigerant circuit is damaged, avoid naked flames or sources of ignition and ventilate the room in which the appliance is situated.
Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.

3.1 Switching on the Appliance
- Allow the appliance to stand for a minimum of 4 hours after installation.
- Plug in the appliance and switch on at the mains supply.
- Set the thermostat control to the required setting as detailed in the Temperature Control section (3.2.).
- Leave the appliance for approximately 4 hours for the correct temperature to be reached.
3.2 Temperature Control
The temperature selector knob is located just behind the door on the front of the appliance (See `Description of the Appliance’ on page 3). Set the thermostat as follows:
- Setting “Min”: Warmest Temperature.
- Setting “Normal or Mid”: Normal Operation (adequate for most situations).
- Setting “Max”: Coldest Temperature.
Important! During high ambient temperatures e.g., on hot summer days, it may be necessary to set the thermostat to the coldest setting (position 7).
This may cause the compressor to run continuously to maintain a low temperature in the cabinet.
3.3 Storing & Freezing Food in the Freezer
This appliance is a four-star freezer and is suitable for the long-term storage of frozen food items. It can also be used for freezing and storing fresh food items.
You should always follow the storage guidelines printed on each food producers packaging; however, the following information is provided as a general guide for the maximum storage life of frozen items:
- Fresh Meat and Poultry – up to 12 months.
- Cooker Meats – up to 2 months.
- Fresh Fish – up to 6 months.
- Fruit and Vegetables – up to 12 months.
- Bread and Cakes – up to 6 months.
3.4 Normal Operating Sounds
You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when the refrigerant is pumped to the cooling system and through the coils or tubing at the rear of the appliance. When the compressor is in operation you may hear a slight whirring sound or pulsating noise. The thermostat controls the operation of the compressor, and you may hear a slight click as it cycles in and out.
3.5 Energy Saving Advice
Do not install the appliance close to sources of heat, such as a cooker, dishwasher, or radiator. Locate the appliance in a cool well-ventilated room and make sure that the air vents are clear. Try to avoid keeping the door open for a long time, warm air will enter the cabinet and may cause a buildup of ice as well as affecting the energy consumption. Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the door from closing properly. Ensure that the door seal is clean and there are no tears or splits. Do not put hot food into the freezer let it cool down first.
3.6 In the Event of a Power Failure
If there is a power failure, keep the door closed. When the power has been restored the appliance will start to operate but it may take some time to achieve the pre-set operating temperature. Check the condition of your stored food items and liquids.
Before any maintenance or cleaning work is carried out, DISCONNECT the appliance from the ELECTRICITY supply.
4.1 Internal Cleaning
Clean the interior and accessories with warm water and bicarbonate of soda (5ml to 0.5 litres of water). Rinse and dry thoroughly. Do not use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning products, wax polishes or cleaning products containing bleach or alcohol.
4.2 External Cleaning
Wash the outer cabinet with warm soapy water. Do NOT use abrasive products. There may be sharp edges on the underside of the product, so care should be taken when cleaning. Once or twice a year dust the rear of the appliance and the compressor at the back of the appliance, with a brush or vacuum cleaner, as an accumulation of dust will affect the performance of the appliance and cause increased energy consumption.
It is advisable to carry out de-frosting when your frozen food stocks are minimal. Any frozen food that you do have inside the appliance should be wrapped in thick newspaper or stored in a cool bag whilst carrying out the defrost operation.
If ice buildup in the appliance exceeds 3-5mm, empty the contents and switch off the appliance, leave the door open and allow the ice to melt. Do not use sharp objects to scrape the ice away. Clean and dry the interior, close the door, and turn on the power to the appliance. When the power has been restored the appliance will start to operate but it may take some time to achieve the pre-set operating temperature.
4.4 When the Appliance Is Not in Use
When the appliance is not in use for long periods, remove the contents, disconnect from the electricity supply, and clean the appliance, leaving the door ajar until you wish to use the appliance again.
4.5 Reversing the Door
The door opening can be reversed from “right hand hinged” to “left hand hinged” if required. If your appliance is supplied “left hand hinged” simply reverse the following procedure.
