USING THE FREEZER (if

USING THE FREEZER (if applicable) The freezer can also be used to freeze fresh food. The amount of fresh food that can be frozen within a 24 hour period is shown on the specification plate. Freezing fresh food • If the freezer compartment has a shelf, arrange the food to be frozen according to Fig. 1, otherwise arrange it according to Fig. 2 if it does not have a shelf. • Place the food in the middle of the freezer compartment , making sure that it does not touch food that is already frozen and keeping a distance of approx. 20 mm from the already frozen food (Fig. 1 and 2). • For appliances with a freezer compartment , press button (E) to switch on the Fast Freezing function; the white control light (E) lights up and stays on while the freezing process takes place. • After approx. 26 hours, the function automatically switches off and the white control light (E) goes out. The function can be deactivated by pressing button (E). The storage time in months for fresh frozen food is given in the table on the right. When buying deep-frozen goods, pay attention to the following: • The packaging must not be damaged, as this might affect the preservation of the contents. If the packaging is inflated or has wet patches, the product may not have been stored properly and the contents could have defrosted. • Put deep-frozen goods in your shopping trolley last and always transport them in a cool bag. • When you get home, put deep-frozen goods in the freezer straight away. • Never refreeze defrosted items; instead use them within 24 hours. • Avoid temperature fluctuations or keep them to a minimum. Observe the use-by date indicated on the packaging. • When storing deep-frozen goods, always follow the instructions on the packaging. Preparing ice cubes • Fill the ice cube tray 2/3 with water and place inside the freezer compartment . • If the tray freezes to the bottom , do not use any sharp or pointed objects to dislodge it. • To make it easier to take the ice cubes out of the tray, bend the tray slightly.

DEFROSTING THE APPLIANCE Before defrosting, disconnect the appliance from the mains supply or switch it off. The refrigerator defrosts automatically. Occasionally, water droplets will appear on the inside rear panel of the refrigerator; this indicates the automatic defrosting phase. The defrost water is automatically drained to a drainage outlet and then collected in a container where it evaporates. Clean the drainage outlet regularly with the tool supplied with the refrigerator to make sure that the water can drain off continuously and undisturbed. (Fig. 1) Defrosting the freezer compartment (if applicable) The freezer compartment should be defrosted once or twice a year, or if an excessively thick layer of frost builds up. The build-up of frost is completely normal. The amount and speed of frost formation depends on environmental conditions and how often the door is opened. A build-up of frost particularly in the upper part of the freezer compartment is normal and does not affect the operation of the freezer in any way. Defrosting should be carried out when there are not many frozen items stored in the freezer. • Open the door, remove all food items and store them in a cool place or in a cool bag. • Leave the door open to let the frost defrost. • Clean the inside compartment with a sponge and a solution of lukewarm water and/or neutral cleaning agent. Do not use any abrasive cleaners. • Rinse and dry carefully. • Replace the food items. • Close the door. Plug in the mains plug and switch on the appliance. When doing so, follow the instructions given in the section “Using the refrigerator”. The settings activated prior to switching off the appliance will be retained. Fig. 1 8
