SmartFresh drawers
The SmartFresh drawers provide the
right combination of temperature and
humidity. The result is freshness up to
three times longer than in the other
zones of the refrigerator.
Storage temperatures
For fresh foods that are not adversely
affected by cold, the best range is
32° - 37°F (0° - 3°C). This helps to keep
the food fresh considerably longer than
in the rest of the refrigerator, spoiling is
minimal.
The temperature is set to approx. 35°F
(1.5°C).
Humidity
The closer the humidity in the appliance
matches the moisture content of the
food, the more moisture the food will
retain, and the fresher and crisper it will
stay over a longer period of time.
The optimal humidity is determined on
the basis of the food stored in the
appliance.
Proper humidity is assisted by 2
humidity filters located above the
SmartFresh drawers. These filters allow
air to pass through, yet retain moisture.
Using the SmartFresh drawers
^ Use the sensor button to select the
desired drawer.
The selected sensor button turns
yellow, and the sensor buttons for the
food choices appear.
The most recently selected food type(s)
appear yellow.
^ Use the sensor buttons to select the
food type(s).
– Several food types can be selected
at the same time.
– To delete a food type, simply press it
again.
– Depending on the food types
selected, the optimal humidity is
determined for the SmartFresh
drawers.
– The "deli" and "dairy" settings are the
most energy efficient.
^ Touch the access button to confirm
the settings.
^ Place the food in the drawer.
^ Repeat the process above to
additional food types.

SmartFresh drawers
Tips for storing food in the
SmartFresh drawers
For optimal storage conditions, it is
always best to store similar foods
together in one drawer.
The upper SmartFresh drawer is the
best place to store moisture
sensitive foods.
Be sure the drawers are clean and
dry before placing food in them.
Foods that are best stored under dry
conditions
– fresh fish and shellfish, meats,
poultry, sausage, dairy products and
deli salads.
Foods that are best stored under
moist conditions
– fresh produce, e.g., vegetables,
lettuce, herbs, mushrooms,
cabbage, fruit.
Remember that higher moisture levels
can only be attained when the food is
stored unpacked so air can circulate
freely.
17
Using the refrigerator efficiently
Different storage zones
Coldest area
Due to the natural circulation of air in
the appliance, there are different
temperature zones in the refrigerator.
Cold, heavy air sinks to the lowest
section of the appliance. Make use of
these different zones when placing
food in the appliance.
The coldest area in the refrigerator is
directly above the SmartFresh drawers.
The temperature in the drawers
themselves is even colder.
Use these cold areas in the refrigerator
for all highly perishable foods, such as:
– fish, meat, poultry,
This appliance uses a dynamic
cooling feature to establish a
constant temperature during
cooling. As a result, the differences
between temperature zones are less
pronounced.
Leave some space between items, so
air can circulate freely around them.
Make sure the ventilation slits are not
covered - this is important for the
cooling performance.
Warmest area
The warmest area is in the top section
of the door. Use this area to store items
such as butter and cheese.
– deli meats, store-bought meals,
– dishes or baked goods containing
eggs or cream,
– fresh bread dough, pastry dough,
cake batters,
– dairy products.
If storing high-proof alcohol, make
sure it is tightly closed and stored
upright.
Do not store cooking oil in the
refrigerator door. Traces of oil can
cause stress cracks to occur in the
plastic components in the door.
Do not allow food to touch the rear
wall of the appliance, it may freeze
to the wall.
18
SuperCool
When the SuperCool function is
activated, the appliance is cooled as
cold and quickly as possible (to a
factory-preset temperature).
The SuperCool function is ideal for the
rapid cooling of drinks and for
refrigerating large quantities of foods.
Switching on SuperCool
^ Touch the sensor button for the
refrigerator so it turns yellow.
^ Touch the SuperCool sensor button
so it turns yellow.
In the temperature display for the
refrigerator zone, the new temperature
setting appears, 35°F (2°C).
Switching off SuperCool
The SuperCool function automatically
switches off after approx. 6 hours. The
sensor button turns white, and the
appliance continues running at normal
power.
To save energy, the SuperCool function
can be switched off early, once the
food and/or drinks are sufficiently
chilled.
^ Touch the SuperCool sensor button
so that it turns white.
The temperature display for the zone
selected returns to the original
temperature setting.
The appliance now continues running
at normal power.
The temperature in the appliance now
begins to fall, with maximum cooling in
the refrigerator zone.
19
Automatic defrost
Refrigerator and SmartFresh
drawers
The refrigerator and SmartFresh
drawers defrost automatically.
During normal operation, condensate
and frost can form on the rear wall of
the refrigerator and drawers.
You do not need to remove this
build-up, it will defrost and evaporate
automatically with the heat generated
by the appliance.
20
Adjusting the interior fittings
Moving the shelves
Deli drawer
The shelves can be adjusted according
to the height of the food.
This drawer is set on telescopic tracks.
It can be pulled in and out for loading
and unloading, or removed for
cleaning.
^ Using both hands, grasp the shelf
from underneath and lift slightly so
that the rear of the shelf is slightly
above the mountings.
^ Open the drawer.
^ Pull the shelf forward.
^ Move the shelf to the desired height,
then insert the (rear) hooks into
place.
