Freezer mode

The use of temperatures of 0°F / -18 °C or colder to store food means that the food can be kept for longer periods than when refrigeration temperatures are used. This is because the growth of bacteria, moulds and yeasts are stopped, and chemical and physical reactions are severely restricted at such low temperatures. This results in food staying fresher for longer.

To use Freezer mode:
  1. Press and hold the LOCK  button for 3 seconds to unlock the control panel.
  2. Press the MODE SELECT  button.
  3. Scroll to FREEZER  mode.
  4. The Freezer mode icon will flash until the compartment is at a suitable temperature for food to be added into the compartment (this will take between 1 – 6 hours).


These times should not be exceeded


1 Bacon, casseroles, milk
2 Bread, ice-cream, sausages, pies (meat and fruit), prepared shellfish, oily fish
3 Non oily fish, shellfish, pizza, cakes and muffins
4 Ham, beef and lamb chops, poultry pieces
6 Butter, vegetables (blanched), eggs whole and yolks, cooked crayfish, minced meat (raw), pork (raw)
12 Fruit (dry or in syrup), egg whites, beef (raw), whole chicken, lamb (raw), fruit cakes

For optimum freezing results we recommend removing storage bins from the compartment and placing packaged food directly on the trays.
