4. DAILY USE
4.1 Freezing fresh food
The freezer compartment is suitable for
freezing fresh food and storing frozen
and deep-frozen food for a long time.
To freeze fresh food activate the
FROSTMATIC function at least 24 hours
before placing the food to be frozen in
the freezer compartment.
Place the fresh food to be frozen in the
bottom compartment.
The maximum amount of food that can
be frozen in 24 hours is specified on the
rating plate, a label located on the
inside of the appliance.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours:
during this period do not add other food
to be frozen.
When the freezing process is completed,
return to the required temperature (see
"FROSTMATIC Function").
In this condition, the
refrigerator compartment
temperature might drop
below 0°C. If this occurs
reset the temperature
regulator to a warmer
setting.
4.2 Storage of frozen food
When first starting-up or after a period
out of use, before putting the products
in the compartment let the appliance run
at least 2 hours with the FROSTMATIC
function turned on.
If large quantities of food are to be
stored, remove all drawers from
appliance and place food on glass shelf
to obtain the best performance.

www.aeg.com
In the event of accidental
defrosting, for example due
to a power failure, if the
power has been off for
longer that the value shown
in the technical data chart
under "Rising time", the
defrosted food must be
consumed quickly or cooked
immediately and then refrozen (after cooling).
4.3 Storage of the food in a
fridge compartment
To install the filter in the appliance:
1. Take off the filter cover.
2. Take out the filter from the plastic
bag.
3. Insert the filter in the slot in the rear
wall of the appliance.
Cover or wrap the food, particularly if it
has a strong flavour.
Position the food so that air can circulate
freely around it.
Keep the food on all shelves no closer
than 20 mm from the rear wall and 15
mm from the door.
4.4 PROFRESH PLUS
4. Put on the filter cover.
The refrigerator compartment is
equipped with a device that allows rapid
cooling of food and keeps a more
uniform temperature in the
compartment.
This device activates automatically when
needed, for example when the
temperature inside the appliance is high.
4.5 CLEANAIR CONTROL
filter
This active carbon filter absorbs bad
odours and maintains the best flavour
and aroma for all the food stored in the
refrigerator compartment.
On delivery the filter is in a plastic bag.
CAUTION!
Make sure that the filter
cover is always closed so
that the filter functions
correctly.
To get the best performance the filter
should be changed once every 6 months.
New active filter can be purchased from
your local dealer or through the website.
The part number is printed on the plastic
bag.
5. CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
5.1 Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first
time, the interior and all internal
accessories should be washed with
lukewarm water and some neutral soap
ENGLISH
to remove the typical smell of a brandnew product, then dried thoroughly.
CAUTION!
Do not use detergents,
abrasive powders, chlorine
or oil-based cleaners as they
will damage the finish.
5.2 Periodic cleaning
CAUTION!
Do not pull, move or
damage any pipes and/or
cables inside the cabinet.
CAUTION!
Take care of not to damage
the cooling system.

5.3 Defrosting
Your appliance is frost free. This means
that there is no build up of frost when it
is in operation, neither on the internal
walls nor on the foods. The absence of
frost is due to the continuous circulation
of cold air inside the compartment,
driven by an automatically controlled fan.
The defrost water drains out through a
trough into a special container at the
back of the appliance, over the motor
compressor, where it evaporates.
It is important to periodically clean the
defrost water drain hole in the middle of
the refrigerator compartment channel to
prevent the water overflowing and
dripping onto the food inside.
CAUTION!
When moving the cabinet,
lift it by the front edge to
avoid scratching the floor.
The equipment has to be cleaned
regularly:
1. Clean the inside and accessories with
lukewarm water and some neutral
soap.
2. Regularly check the door seals and
wipe clean to ensure they are clean
and free from debris.
3. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
4. If accessible, clean the condenser
and the compressor at the back of
the appliance with a brush.
This operation will improve the
performance of the appliance and
save electricity consumption.
5.4 Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for long
periods, take the following precautions:
1. Disconnect the appliance from
electricity supply.
2. Remove all food.
3. Clean the appliance and all
accessories.
4. Leave the door/doors open to
prevent unpleasant smells.
