Scrapping old appliances
Risk of fire/flammable material. The symbol indicates there is a risk of fire since flammable materials are used. Take care to avoid causing a fire by igniting flammable material. This appliance is marked according to the European directive 2012/19/EU on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).

WEEE contains both polluting substances (which can cause negative consequences for the environment) and basic components (which can be re-used). It is important to have WEEE subjected to specific treatments, to remove and dispose properly of all pollutants, and to recover and recycle all materials. Individuals can play an important role in ensuring that WEEE does not become an environmental issue; it is essential to follow some basic rules:

  • WEEE should not be treated as household waste.
  • WEEE should be handed over to the relevant collection points managed by the municipality or by registered companies. In many countries, for large WEEE, home collection could be present.

In many countries, when you buy a new appliance, the old one may be returned to the retailer who has to collect it free of charge on a one-to-one basis, as long as the equipment is of equivalent type and has the same functions as the supplied equipment.

Energy Saving

For better energy saving we suggest:

  • Installing the appliance away from heat sources and not exposed to direct sunlight and in a well-ventilated room.
  • Avoid putting hot food into the refrigerator to avoid increasing the internal temperature and therefore causing continuous functionality of the compressor.
  • Do not excessively stuff foods to ensure proper air circulation.
  • Defrost the appliance in case there is ice to facilitate the transfer of cold.
  • In case of absence of electrical energy, it is advisable to keep the refrigerator door closed.
  • Open or keep the doors of the appliance open as little as possible
  • Avoid adjusting the setting to temperatures too cold.
  • Remove dust present on the rear of the appliance.

The appliance should be transported only in a vertical upright position. The packing was supplied intact during transportation. If during transport, the product has been transported horizontally, it must only be laid on its hand side (when facing the door front) and it must operate for at least 4 hours to allow the system to settle after the appliance is brought back position.

  1. Failure to comply with the above instructions could result in damage occurring to the manufacturer will not be held responsible if these instructions are disregarded.
  2. The appliance must be protected against rain, moisture, and other atmospheric influence


  1. If possible avoid placing the appliance near cookers, radiators, or in direct sunlight as the compressor to run for long periods. If installed next to a source of heat or refrigerator the following minimum side clearances:
    From Cookers 4″ (100 mm)
    From Radiators 12″ (300 mm)
    From Fridges 4″ (100 mm)
  2. Make sure that sufficient room is provided around the appliance to ensure free air circulIdeally, A space of no less than 10cm must be left around the freezer, and ensure you are shown in the below diagram.
  3. The appliance should be located on a smooth surface.
  4. It is forbidden to use the refrigerator outdoors.
  5. Protection from moisture. Do not locate the freezer in a moist space to avoid the metal paAnd do not spray water on the freezer, otherwise, it will weaken the insulation and cause leakage.
  6. Refer to the “Cleaning and Care” section to prepare your appliance for use.
  7. If the freezer is installed in unheated areas, garages, etc., in cold weather condensation on the outer surfaces. This is quite normal and is not a fault. Remove the condensation with a dry cloth.

Before you start to use the freezer, please check that:

  1. The interior is dry and air can circulate freely at the rear.
  2. Clean the interior as recommended under the “TAKE CARE” section.
  3. Insert the plug into the wall socket and switch on the electricity supply, then Theon. Avoid accidental disconnection by tapping on the switch. The green light will compressor will start running.
  4. You will hear a noise as the compressor starts up. The liquid and gases sealed with the refrigeration system may also give rise to noise, whether the compressor is run which is quite normal.
  5. If you going to store already frozen food open the freezer lid and check that it reaches the correct temperature. Then you can put in your already frozen food. (“Storing Frozen Food”).
  6. Do not load the appliance immediately after it is switched on. Wait until the corrtemperature has been reached. We recommend that you check the temperature-accurate thermometer (see “Freezer Operation”).



The temperature of the freezer is adjusted using the knob assembled on the thermostat、4、5” does not represent a specific temperature. The smaller the No. the higher the temperatures. So, position “5” is the lowest temperature. Figures mean: “OFF”: Forced Shutdown Point 1-5:Frozen Interval (from -12 ℃ to -30 ℃) The achieved temperatures can vary according to the conditions of use of the appliance, such as the appliance, ambient temperature, and frequency of lid opening, extent of filling with food freezer.

The position of the thermostat knob will change according to these factors. Normally, the ambient temperature of approx. 25℃, the thermostat should be adjusted to the mild position. We recommend that you check the temperature with a thermometer to ensure that the Frito is the desired temperature. Remember you must take your reading very quickly since the temperature will rise very rapidly after you remove it from the freezer.

Indicator Lights
The indicator light is placed on the front side of the freezer for easy visibility. Indicator lights mean the following:

  • Green LED – indicates the freezer is plugged.
  • The red LED – indicates the high temperature inside the cabinet.

Storing Frozen Food

Prepackaged commercially frozen food should be stored following the frozen food manufacturer’s instructions for a freezer compartment. To ensure that the high quality achieved by the frozen food manufacturer and the food retail maintained the following should be remembered:

  1. Put packets in the freezer as quickly as possible after purchase.
  2. Do not exceed the “Use By”, and “Best Before” dates on the packaging.

Freezing Fresh
Food Place the fresh food to be frozen near the side walls to ensure fast freezing and away from already food, if possible. The freezing capacity of your appliance in 24 hours is 5 kg (10lb). Never exceed this maximum capacity. Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time. The food is best preserved when it is frozen right through to the center as quickly as possible. Take special care not to mix already frozen food and fresh food.


  1. There is a water conduit at the bottom of the freezer, when defrosting, extract the rubbed frosted water will drip into the hole and flow out. (NOTES: Please keep the rubber during the defrosting and put it back after defrosting is done).
  2. Extract the water conduit by 20-25mm until the water hole can be seen.
  3. Twist the water conduit until the arrow points downward.
  4. After defrosting is done, make sure there is no more water coming out before out the conduit in place and make the arrow point upward.

Cleaning and Care
We recommend that you switch off the freezer at the socket outlet and pull out the mains plug cleaning. Never use any sharp abrasive instrument, soap, household cleaner, detergent, and wax polish cleaning. Use lukewarm water to clean the cabinet of the freezer and wipe it dry.

Use a damp cloth wrung out in a solution of one teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to clean the interior and wipe it dry. Excess deposits of ice should be removed regularly using a plastic ice scraper available in store. A large accumulation of ice will impair the performance of the freezer. If the freezer is not going to be used for a long period switch it off, remove all food, and leave the lid ajar. Check lid seals regularly to ensure they are clean and free from food particles.


  • If the appliance does not operate when switched on, check.
  • The product is designed and built for domestic household use only.
  • The plug is inserted properly in the socket and the power supply is on. (To power supply to the socket, plug in another appliance).
