General Safety
s
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its
cooling unit; maintenance and recharging
must therefore only be carried out by
authorised technicians.
s
Take utmost care when handling your
appliance so as not to cause any damages to
the cooling unit with consequent possible fluid
leakages.
s
The appliance must not be located close to
radiators or boilers.
s
Avoid prolonged exposure of the appliance to
direct sunlight.
s
Do not use other electrical appliances (such as
ice cream makers) inside of refrigerating
appliances.
During Use
s
This appliance is designed for domestic use only,
specifically for the storage of edible foodstuffs. It is
not intended for commercial or industrial use.
s
Containers with flammable gases or liquids can
leak at low temperatures. Do not store any
containers with flammable materials, such as
spray cans, fire extinguisher refill cartridges etc. in
the freezer.
s
Frozen food should not be refrozen once it has
thawed out.
s
Do not place carbonated or fizzy drinks in the
freezer compartment.
s
Ice lollies can cause ‘frost/freezer burns’ if
consumed straight from the freezer.
s
Do not remove items from the freezer
compartment if your hands are damp/wet, as this
could cause skin abrasions or frost/freezer burns.
s
Placing frozen goods on the top of the appliance
can lead to the accumulation of condensation in
the cavity of the storage tray through contact with
the cold. Electronic components are housed within
this cavity. If condensation should drip onto these
components, the appliance could be damaged by
a short circuit. For this reason do not place frozen
goods on top of the appliance.
s
Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer
as they can burst when the contents freeze.
