use a small coin.The internal temperature of the
freezer is automatically adjusted by the thermostat to
ensure safe food storage. 
However, if the appliance is working in unfavourable
room conditions such as
- poor 
ventilation, 
-
high temperature, 
-
frequent door openings, 
it may be necessary to select a more suitable
setting.
To obtain a lower temperature, turn the thermostat
control to the higher number; to obtain a higher
