Very comprehensive document which is a must-have for any Satellit 2100 owner whose set up is somewhat intricate. Due to the bad quality of the pictures that are rather dark and a bit blurred I gave 4-star feedback.
The manual was missing 2 pages but when I presented the problem to the company they made every attempt to get the 2 pages to me, when they couldn't they refunded my money. A very pleasing and easy transaction. The manual they provided was the original, it was concise and to the point. I plan to do business with this company again when should the need arise.
Irrespectively of this manual exist only germany language, it's useful - although i need some additional task to translate: My english is bad, but usable - but i really dont speak germany. :)

How to use the freezer
The appliance can be used to freeze fresh food of quantity specified on the data label. Freezing different products should always be done after proper preparing as follows. Set the thermostat knob to a medium position. Put the previously frozen food - or some of it - to another basket or baskets. Put the fresh food into the upper basket, leaving enough space for airflow. If there is some previously frozen food left in the upper basket, put this food into the back of the basket avoiding the contact between the fresh food and the already frozen food. Run the appliance this way for 24 hours. After 24 hours set the thermostat knob according to your choice or leave it in a medium position, which is in general appropriate for everyday cooling needs. Should you want to freeze the quantity declared by the producer, remove the upper basket from the appliance and put the fresh food uniformly distributed directly on the cooling surface. Setting the thermostat knob to a higher (e.g. maximum) position is not recommended. Although doing so would make the freezing time shorter, on the other hand the temperature of the fridge compartment may go permanently below 0Â°C, what yields freezing the food and drinks stored there. Never freeze food in bigger quantity than given in the 'Technical data' at the same time, otherwise freezing will not be thorough and after dissolving various deterioration may take place (losing taste and aroma, lysing, etc.). Do not make ice during freezing preferably, because making ice reduces freezing capacity.
How to make ice cubes
To make ice cubes fill the enclosed ice cube tray with water and put it to the frozen food compartment. Wetting the bottom of the tray and setting thermostatic control knob to maximum position can shorten preparing time. After finishing do not forget to reset the thermostatic control to the suitable position. Ready ice cubes can be taken out of the tray under running water then twist or hit it. If the ice tray freezes to the compartment, avoid using metal tools or knife to take it out as the cooling system can be damaged.
Some useful information and advice
The variable shelves are worth paying attention to, which increases the usability of the fresh food compartment considerably. Rearranging the shelves is also possible when the door is open at an angle of 90Â°. After opening and closing the door of freezer vacuum will rise inside the appliance because of the low temperature. So wait 2-3 minutes after closing the door - if you want to open it again while inner pressure equalises. Take care of operating the freezer at a position of thermostatic control so that the inside temperature can never go above -18 Â°C, since temperature higher than this can deteriorate frozen foods. It is practical to make sure of faultless operation of the appliance daily so as to notice possible failure in time and prevent deterioration of frozen foods.
Storing in the freezer
It is practical to replace frozen products into the basket(s) after freezing has finished. Doing this you could make room in the freezing compartment for another freezing. Intermediate freezing does not deteriorate foods already stored. In large quantities of food are to be stored, remove the baskets except the lowermost one from appliance and place food on the cooling surface. Do not forget to keep to the storage time given on the packaging of frozen products if you buy them frozen. To store home-frozen products see the storing instructions placed in the door of the freezer. Symbols signify the various foods, numbers mean maximum storing time given in months. It is safe to store quick-frozen, frozen foods only if they have not dissolved even for a short time until placing them into the freezer. If the deep-frozen food has already dissolved, refreezing is not recommended, it has to be used up as soon as possible. 8
Hints and ideas
In this chapter practical hints and ideas are given about how to use the appliance to reach maximum energy saving and there is environmental information about the appliance as well.
How to save energy
Avoid putting the appliance in a sunny place and near anything that gives off heat. Be sure that the condenser and the compressor are well ventilated. Do not cover the sections where ventilation is. Wrap products in tightly closing dishes or cling film to avoid building up unnecessary frost. Do not leave the door open longer than necessary and avoid unnecessary openings. Put warm foods into the appliance only when they are at room temperature. Keep the condenser clean.
