Operating tips
■
■
The sides of the housing are
sometimes heated slightly.
This prevents condensation in
the area of the door seal.
If the air humidity is high,
condensation may form in the
refrigerator compartment, especially
on the glass shelves. If this is the
case, pack or wrap the food and
select a lower temperature in the
refrigerator compartment.
■
It is quite normal for condensation
droplets or frost to form on the inside
of the back panel. The frost thaws
automatically and runs into the
evaporation pan via the condensation
channel. Keep the condensation
channel and drain hole clean so that
the condensation can drain. Fig. 3
■
When the freezer compartment has
reached its set temperature,
the display 8 “AL” goes out.
en
■
■
If the freezer compartment door
cannot be immediately re-opened after
it has been closed, wait until the
resulting low pressure has equalised.
The refrigeration system may cause
several areas of the freezer shelves to
frost quickly. The appliance does not
require defrosting until the entire
surface of the freezer shelf is covered
with more than 5 mm of frost or ice.

When purchasing food, please
note:
The “purchase freshness” is important
for the shelf-life of your food.
In principle, the following applies: the
fresher you store the food in the
appliance, the longer it will remain fresh.
Therefore, when buying food, pay
attention to the degree of freshness.
In the case of ready-made products and
bottled goods, observe the best-before
date or use-by date specified by the
manufacturer.
10
■
Wrap or cover food before placing in
the appliance. This will retain the
aroma, colour and freshness of the
food. In addition, flavours will not be
transferred between foods and the
plastic parts will not become
discoloured.
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.
Vegetable container with
humidity control
Fig. +
To create the optimum storage climate
for vegetables and fruit, the air humidity
in vegetable container can be regulated
according to the quantity stored.
smaller quantities of fruit and vegetables
– high air humidity
large quantities of fruit and vegetables
– low air humidity
Note
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 for
optimum preservation of quality and
flavour.
en
Note the chill zones in the
refrigerator compartment
The air circulation in the refrigerator
compartment creates different chill
zones:

While the refrigerating unit is running,
beads of condensation or hoarfrost form
at the back of the refrigerator
compartment. This is quite normal.
It is not necessary to wipe off the
condensation or frost. The rear panel
defrosts automatically. The condensation
runs into the condensation channel,
Fig. 3. and is conveyed to the
refrigerating unit where it evaporates.
Note
Keep the condensation channel and
drainage hole clean, so that the
condensation can run out.
Note
Approx. 4 hours before defrosting the
appliance, switch on super freezing so
that the food drops to a very low
