I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.

Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could freeze to the food. 0 Place the packed food in the drawers. Unfrozen food must not touch items already frozen, otherwise the frozen food could begin to defrost. Tips: â¢ The following are suited for the packaging of frozen goods: â freezer bags and polyethylene wraps; â plastic containers for frozen goods; â extraâthick aluminium foil. â¢ The following are suitable for sealing bags and wrap: plastic clips, rubber bands or tape. â¢ Smooth the air out of the bag before sealing; air makes it easier for the frozen food to dry out. â¢ Make flat packages, because these freeze more quickly. â¢ Do not fill plastic containers for frozen goods to the brim with liquid or pasteâlike goods, because liquids expand during freezing. 0 Once the required storage temperature has been reached, press the fast freeze button again. The yellow light goes out.
Important! Wait until the necessary storage temperature of â18 Â°C has been reached before storing food already frozen. â¢ Load freezer only with packaged frozen goods, so that they do not dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of other frozen goods can occur. â¢ Please observe maximum storage times and expiry dates of frozen goods.
Place frozen foods in the drawers sorted by type, as far as possible. Index tabs are supplied for placing on drawers. To mark the contents of the individual drawers, press the index tab over the corresponding symbol (see "Storage Goods Symbols/Freezing Calendar" section). This will give you a better overview of the contents, avoid extended door opening and therefore save electricity.
