frozen at once.
Door alarm
If one of the appliance doors is left
open for more than 60 seconds, the
alarm signal will sound.
15
Using the Super and DynaCool functions
Super function
The Super function is used to rapidly
reduce the temperature in the
refrigerator and freezer sections to their
lowest settings (depending on the room
temperature).
When used with the refrigerator the
Super function is ideal for the rapid
cooling of drinks and refrigerating large
quantities of food.
When used with the freezer the Super
function is ideal for freezing large
quantities of unfrozen food. The
function should be switched on approx.
6 hours before the fresh food is placed
in the freezer. If the max. freezing
capacity is used allow 24 hours.
This helps food to freeze quickly and
retain its nutrients, vitamins, flavor and
appearance.
It is not necessary to use the Super
function in the freezer if you are loading
frozen food or if you are loading less
than 4.4 lbs (2 kg) of food.
Turning on the Super function for the
refrigerator/freezer
^ Press the Super button for the
refrigerator or freezer as desired, the
indicator light will turn on.
The appliance will now work at full
power to lower the temperature in the
refrigerator/freezer section.
Turning off the Super function for the
refrigerator/freezer
The Super function automatically turns
off after:
Refrigerator: approx. 6 hours
Freezer:
approx. 30 - 60 hours
(depending on the amount of food
frozen).
The indicator light will go out, and the
appliance will run at normal power.
The Super function can be turned off
early, once a constant temperature
of 0°F (-18° C) or colder has been
reached in the freezer section, or once
the food and/or drinks are sufficiently
chilled in the refrigerator.
^ To turn the function off early, press
the Super button for the refrigerator
or freezer as desired, the indicator
light will go out.
The appliance will now run at normal
power.
16
Using the Super and DynaCool functions
DynaCool m
DynaCool should also be selected if:
If the dynamic cooling function
(DynaCool) is not switched on, the
natural circulation of air throughout the
appliance can create different
temperature zones in the refrigerator
section, with the colder, heavier air
sinking to the lowest section. See
"Using the refrigerator efficiently".
– the room temperature is high (above
approx. 86°F (30 °C), and
If you are placing a large amount of
food in the refrigerator at one time, the
DynaCool function is recommended.
This will help to distribute the
temperature evenly throughout the
cavity so all food will be chilled to about
the same temperature.
The temperature can be set as usual,
with the temperature selection buttons.
– the humidity is high.
Turning on DynaCool
^ Press the DynaCool button, the
indicator light will turn on.
Turning off DynaCool
^ Press the button for DynaCool button,
the indicator light will go out.
When the door is open, the fan
automatically turns off.
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
section is directly above the fruit and
vegetable drawers.
This appliance uses a dynamic
cooling feature (DynaCool) to
establish a constant temperature
during cooling. As a result, the
differences between temperature
zones are less pronounced.
Use these cold areas in the refrigerator
for all highly perishable foods, such as:
– fish, meat, poultry,
– deli meats, store-bought meals,
– dishes or baked goods containing
eggs or cream,
– fresh bread dough, pastry dough,
cake batters,
– dairy products.
Leave some space between items so
that air can circulate freely around
them. Do not cover the fan in the rear
wall - this is important for 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.
Never store explosive materials in
the appliance, or products with
flammable propellants (e.g. spray
cans,). Danger of explosion!
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
Using the freezer efficiently
Maximum freezing capacity
Placing food in the freezer
To ensure that food is frozen
thoroughly, the maximum freezing
capacity should not be exceeded.
See the data plate:
"Freezing capacity.....lb/kg/24 hrs".
Food to be frozen can be placed
anywhere in the freezer section.
Freezing food
Fresh food should be frozen as quickly
as possible. This helps maintain the
nutritional value, vitamin content,
appearance and taste of the food.
Never refreeze partially or fully
defrosted food. Consume defrosted
food as soon as possible, it will lose its
nutritional value and spoil if left for too
long. Do not refreeze defrosted food
unless it has been cooked.
Before placing food in the freezer
^ When you are planning to freeze
large amounts of food (more than
4 ½ lbs [2 kg]), turn on the Super
function for the freezer ahead of time
(see "Super").
This will provide the food already in
the freezer with a protective boost of
cold air.
Large quantities of food should be
placed directly on the glass plates to
freeze the food quickly. To do this,
remove the two top freezer drawers.
When taking these drawers out be sure
not to block the ventilation slits in the
back wall of the appliance. They are
important for trouble-free operation of
the appliance.
The lowest freezer drawer should not
be removed.
Each drawer and each glass plate
can hold a maximum of 55 lbs
(25 kg).
^ Place the food flat in the bottom of
the freezer drawers or on the glass
plates, so that it will freeze through to
the core as quickly as possible.
^ When placing items in the freezer,
make sure the packaging and
containers are dry, to keep them from
sticking together when frozen.
When freezing, make sure that
already frozen food does not come
into contact with fresh food being
frozen, this could cause the frozen
food to defrost.

Using the freezer efficiently
Freezing large items
Defrosting
If you would like to freeze large items
e.g. turkey or ham, the glass plates
between the drawers can be removed.
Frozen food can be defrosted in
different ways:
^ Remove the top full-width freezer
drawer, and carefully lift and slide out
the glass plates.
Freezer calendar
– in a microwave oven,
– at room temperature,
– in the refrigerator (the cold given off
by the frozen food helps to keep the
other food cold),
The calendar on the freezer drawers
indicates the suggested length of time
(in months) which various foods should
be stored.
– in a steam oven.
If the storage time given on the
packaging differs, follow the advice on
the packaging.
Poultry It is especially important to
observe proper hygiene when
defrosting poultry. Never save the liquid
from defrosted poultry. Drain it away
and promptly wash the container, the
sink and your hands. Danger of
salmonella poisoning.

20
10 - 12
Thin pieces of meat and fish can be
placed directly in a hot pan without
defrosting.
Fruit should be defrosted at room
temperature in its packaging, or in a
covered bowl.
Most vegetables can be cooked while
still frozen. Simply place directly into
boiling water or hot oil.
Using the freezer efficiently
Cooling drinks quickly
Cool pack
To cool drinks quickly, turn on the
Super function for the freezer. See
"Super" for more information.
The cool pack prevents the
temperature in the freezer from rising
too quickly in the event of a power
failure.
Do not leave bottles in the freezer for
more than 1 hour, closed containers
could burst.
Freezer tray
The freezer tray can be used to freeze
small items such as berries, herbs and
vegetables. They are frozen individually
and therefore maintain their shape
when defrosted.
^ Load the items loosely onto the
freezer tray.
^ Hang the tray on one of the upper
freezer drawers.
Place the cool pack in the top freezer
drawer, directly on top of the food. The
pack will be at its most effective after
approx. 24 hours.
If there is a power failure the cool pack
will help keep food cold as long as
possible.
When placing fresh food in the freezer,
use the cool pack to separate the fresh
food from the already frozen food. This
will prevent the frozen food from
beginning to thaw.
Allow 10 - 12 hours for the items to
freeze thoroughly. Then transfer them to
a suitable container or bag.

Automatic defrosting
Refrigerator section
Freezer section
The refrigerator defrosts automatically.
The freezer defrosts 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.
The moisture generated in the
appliance collects on the condenser
and is automatically defrosted and
dissipated by the condenser from time
to time.
The condensate is drained away via a
channel and drain hole into an
evaporation system at the back of the
appliance.
Be sure that the condensate channel
and drain hole are kept clean and
are unblocked so that condensate
can flow away easily.
22
This automatic defrosting system
enables the freezer to remain
permanently ice-free, however the food
stored remains frozen.
Adjusting the interior fittings
Moving the shelves
To move the split shelf:
The shelves can be adjusted according
to the height of the food:
^ Remove both halves of the glass.
^ Lift the shelf, pull it forwards slightly,
until the notch at the side is in line
with the shelf support. It can now be
moved up or down as desired.
The raised edge at the back of the shelf
must face upwards to prevent food
from touching the back of the
appliance.
Stops prevent the shelves from
unintentionally being pulled out too far.
Split shelf
To accommodate tall items such as tall
bottles or containers, one of the shelves
is divided. The front section can be
gently pushed under the rear section:
^ Pull the front half of the glass shelf
forwards slightly, then slide it
carefully under the rear half.
^ Fit the brackets onto the support on
the left and right sides at the desired
height.
^ Slide in the glass shelves one after
the other.
The glass shelf with the raised edge
should be placed at the back.
