Adjustment panels (if necessary)
â¢ Close the door again and check that it is positioned at the requested height. If necessary, use the adjustment screws situated above the fixing bracket and the hinge.
Frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in the fridge or at room temperature depending on the time available. Small food items may even be cooked from frozen; in this case cooking will take longer. Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally should either be eaten as soon as possible or thrown away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and then refrozen. Meat, fish and fruit should be thawed in the refrigerator compartment and small pieces of meat can even be cooked while still frozen, but you must ensure that it is thoroughly cooked through. Vegetables should be directly immersed in boiling water; ready-cooked dishes can be placed directly in the oven in their aluminium wrapping.
Making ice cubes
The appliance is provided with one or more trays for ice-cubes. Fill the tray(s) 3/4 full to give the ice space to expand and place them in the freezer compartment. To release the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight twist. Do not use sharp or metallic instruments to remove the trays from the freezer.
Use the same adjustment screws to align the doors vertically.
Useful hints for freezing
â¢ â¢ â¢ â¢ â¢ Products to be frozen should be fresh and clean. Pack foods in suitable family portions which can be used up all at once. Small packs allow fast and uniform freezing. Lean foods keep better and longer than fatty foods. Salt reduces the storage life of food. Wrap foods closely in aluminium foil or plastic bags or film, and make sure they are properly sealed. Attach a label to each pack, indicating the contents and the date on which it was prepared. Never place hot foods, bottles or containers with fizzy drinks in the freezer (they could explode). Do not fill containers with lids right to the brim. Do not add more food or open the doors during the freezing process. Never place food to be frozen in contact with already frozen food, as this would increase the temperature of the latter.
Check horizontal alignment of the outer door panels and, if necessary, correct their position by moving them along the slots.
A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the oven instructions, particularly regarding the placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in the oven. Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.

â¢ If food is to be frozen immediately after having installed the appliance or after a prolonged period out of use, push the button (I) and allow the appliance to run for at least 4 hours before placing the food in it. If the freezer is already operating, with food inside it, push the button (I) 24 hours before loading food to be frozen. The alarm light indicates when the temperature inside the freezer compartment has risen to a point at which safe storage of frozen foods can no longer be guaranteed. When the appliance is first started up, or after having loaded a quantity of food to be frozen, this warning light will stay or until a safe storage temperature has been reached. Products to be frozen should be placed in the fast freeze compartment and, once frozen, moved to the storage baskets. The maximum freezing capacity is 13 kg in 24 hours. Do not freeze more than this quantity at a time.
Open the door. Adjust the alignment of the front face of the outer door panels by means of the brass insert in the door mounting brackets. â¢
â¢ â¢ Once the door panels are perfectly aligned, fix a clamp screw inside the upper and lower hinge on the lower bracket. The screws must be tighten completely inside the slots.
