Refrigerator
compartment
The refrigerator compartment is the ideal
storage location for meat, sausage,
fish, dairy products, eggs, ready meals
and pastries.
Note the chill zones in
the refrigerator compartment
The air circulation in the refrigerator
compartment creates different chill
zones:
■
Storing food
■
■
■
■
Store fresh, undamaged food.
The quality and freshness will then
be retained for longer.
In the case of ready-made products
and bottled goods, observe the bestbefore date or use-by date specified
by the manufacturer.
To retain aroma, colour and freshness,
pack or cover food well before placing
in the appliance. This will prevent
the transfer of flavours and the
discolouration of plastic parts in
the refrigerator compartment.
Allow warm food and drinks to cool
down before placing in the appliance.
Note
Avoid contact between food and
rear panel. Otherwise the air circulation
will be impaired.
Food or packaging could freeze to
the rear panel.
Coldest zone is between the arrow
stamped on the side and the
glass shelf situated below. Fig. 5
Note
Store perishable food (e.g. fish,
sausage, meat) in the coldest zone.
■
Warmest zone is at the very top
of the door.
Note
Store e.g. hard cheese and butter
in the warmest zone. Cheese can then
continue to release its flavour and
the butter will still be easy to spread.
Vegetable container with
humidity controller
Fig. 4
The vegetable container is the optimum
storage location for fresh fruit and
vegetables. A humidity controller and a
special seal can be used to adjust the air
humidity in the vegetable container.
This allows fresh fruit and vegetables
to be stored twice as long as with
conventional storage.
The air humidity in the vegetable
container can be set according to
the type and amount of products
to be stored:
■
■
10
Mainly fruit as well as for a large load
– lower air humidity
Mainly vegetables as well as for
a mixed load or small load – higher air
humidity
en
Notes
■ Fruit sensitive to cold (e.g. pineapple,
banana, papaya and citrus fruit)
and vegetables sensitive to cold
(e.g. aubergines, cucumbers, zucchini,
peppers, tomatoes and potatoes)
should be stored outside the
refrigerator at temperatures of approx.
+8 °C to +12 °C for optimum
preservation of quality and flavour.
■
Condensation may form in the
vegetable container depending on the
type and quantity of products stored.
Remove condensation with a
dry cloth and adjust air humidity in the
vegetable container with the humidity
controller.
Freezer compartment
Use the freezer compartment
■
■
■

Tips for saving energy

■
■
■
Install the appliance in a dry, well
ventilated room! The appliance should
not be installed in direct sunlight
or near a heat source (e.g. radiator,
cooker).
If required, use an insulating plate.
Select 560 mm cavity depth.
A smaller cavity depth will result in
a higher energy consumption.
Allow warm food and drinks to cool
down before placing in the appliance.
Thaw frozen food in the refrigerator
compartment and use the low
temperature of the frozen food to cool
refrigerated food.
Open the appliance as briefly as
possible.
Regularly defrost the freezer
compartment to remove the layer
of frost.
A layer of hoarfrost will impair
refrigeration of the frozen food and
increase power consumption.
Ensure that the freezer compartment
door is always closed properly.
Occasionally clean the rear of
the appliance to prevent an increased
power consumption.
The arrangement of the fittings
does not affect the energy rating of the
appliance.
