 fast freeze (all models)

We have created the ‘Fast Freeze’ feature to help your get the best possible results when freezing fresh food. ‘Fast Freeze’ boosts the freezing speed by dropping the freezer to its coldest temperature for 12 hours, which helps to ensure vital freshness, texture and taste are retained during the freezing process.

Door alarms (all models)

  • If the fresh food compartment door is left open the alarm will beep after 90 seconds and if the freezer door is left open the alarm will beep after 60 seconds.
  • While either door remains open, subsequent beeps will sound every 30 seconds for 5 minutes.
  • A continuous alarm will sound if either of the doors have been left open for 5 minutes or longer and the interior compartment light(s) will turn off. The alarm will stop only when the door(s) is closed.

If ‘Alarm Mute’ has been activated the door alarms will be silenced for 20 minutes.

The LED above the  button will illuminate to indicate that the appliance is in this mode.
