Whilst this is a photo copy, and some of the pages are a little askew, it was all readable and intact. A real bonus finding an old manual for a classic piece of kit that no other site had.

In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 10 kg. of fresh food. Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer of the freezer as this is the coldest part.
placement of aluminium wrapping or containers in the oven. Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
Making ice cubes Frozen food storage
When first starting-up or after a period of non use, before putting the food in the compartment let the appliance run for at least two hours on the coldest setting, then turn the thermostat knob to the normal operating position. Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the food manufacturer. Finally, do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than is absolutely necessary. Important Do not put carbonated liquids, (fizzy drinks etc.), in the freezer compartment. Ice Iollies, if consumed immediately after removal from the freezer, can cause low temperature skin burns. Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or Ã’frost/freezer burnsÃ“. Important In the event of a power cut do not open the door. The food in the freezer will not be affected if the power cut is short and if the freezer is full. Should the food begin to thaw, it must be consumed quickly and must not be re-frozen. (See Ã’Hits and TipsÃ“) The appliance is provided with two plastic ice cube trays. Fill the trays 3/4 full to allow the ice to expand and place them in one of the freezer drawers. To turn out the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight twist to release the cubes.
The freezer contains two cold accumulators. Place the cold accumulators in the FAST FREEZE compartment. The cold accumulators increase storage times in the event of a power cut or breakdown. Removal of these units wll increase the capacity of the fast freezing compartment but will reduce storage times in the event of a power cut or breakdown.
Fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance, do not store warm food or evaporating liquids in the refrigerator; do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong flavour. Do not cover the shelves with any protective material, such as paper, cardboard or plastic, which may obstruct the air circulation through them. To help you use your refrigerator correctly, here are some more useful hints: Raw meat (beef, pork, lamb & Poultry): wrap in polythene bags and place on the glass shelf on the top of the salad crispers. Meat can only be stored safely in this way for one or two days at the most. Fruit & vegetables: these should be thoroughly cleaned and placed in the salad crispers. Butter & cheese: these should be placed in special airtight containers or wrapped in aluminium foil or polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible. Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be stored in the bottle rack on the door.
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. A microwave oven is particularly suitable for thawing any type of frozen or deep-frozen food: follow the oven instructions, particularly regarding the 6
