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.
The owners manual is very good. all my how to questions were answered in detail.

The freezer compartment
The four-star freezer compartment is suitable for storage of commercially frozen food and for freezing fresh foods.
Frozen food 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 of 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.
Freezing fresh food
When freezing fresh foods set the slider control to the Ã’coldÃ“ position and turn the thermostat control to a higher setting. In any 24 hours you can freeze up to 6 kg. Place food to be frozen in the upper drawer of the freezer as this is the coldest part. After 24 hours reposition the slider control and thermostat control to previous setting. Important To ensure correct operation of the appliance do not use the appliance with the basket or drawers removed.
Frozen food storage
Frozen food can be stored in any basket or drawer of the freezer compartment, including the fast freeze compartment. Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the manufacturer. Do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than is absolutely necessary. Warning 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“.
In the event of a power failure - DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR, the food in the freezer will not be affected if the power cut is short and the freezer is full. If the temperature in the freezer rises, and the food begins to thaw, do not re-freeze the food without checking its conditions. The following guidelines should assist you. Ice-cream: once thawed should be discarded. Fruits & Vegetables: if soft should be cooked and used up. Breads & Cakes: can be re-frozen without danger. Shellfish: should be refrigerated and used up quickly. Cooked Dishes: i.e. casseroles should be refrigerated and used up. Large Pieces of Meat: can be re-frozen providing there are still ice crystals remaining within them. Small Joints: should be cooked and can then be refrozen as cooked dishes. Chicken: should also be cooked and re-frozen as a cooked dish.
Ice cube tray holder
The holder is designed to hold the two ice cube trays supplied and it is recommended that these are used. The holder can be located onto the front of any of the baskets. To make ice cubes: Fill the trays 3/4 full to allow the ice to expand and place in the ice cube tray holder. To turn out the ice cubes simply give the tray a slight twist to release the cubes. 8
