then dry thoroughly.
If “dEMo” appears on the Display, the appliance is in demonstration mode: refer to “WHAT
TO DO IF...” paragraph.
Do not use detergents or abrasive powders, as these will damage the finish.
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
two top compartments.
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.
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 on the higher settings.
In the event of accidental defrosting, for example due to a
power failure, if the power has
been off for longer than the value shown in the technical characteristics chart under "rising
time", the defrosted food must
be consumed quickly or cooked
immediately and then re-frozen
(after cooling).
4.3 Thawing
Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in the refrigerator compartment or at room temperature, depending on the time available
for this operation.
8
www.aeg.com
Small pieces may even be cooked still
frozen, directly from the freezer: in this
case, cooking will take longer.
4.4 Ice-cube production
This appliance is equipped with one or
more trays for the production of icecubes. Fill these trays with water, then
put them in the freezer compartment.
4.5 Cold accumulators
One or more cold accumulators are supplied in the freezer; these increase the
length of time for which food will keep in
the event of a power failure or breakdown.
Do not use metallic instruments
to remove the trays from the
freezer.
5. HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
5.1 Hints for freezing
To help you make the most of the freezing process, here are some important
hints:
• the maximum quantity of food which
can be frozen in 24 hrs. is shown on
the rating plate;
• the freezing process takes 24 hours.
No further food to be frozen should
be added during this period;
• only freeze top quality, fresh and thoroughly cleaned, foodstuffs;
• prepare food in small portions to enable it to be rapidly and completely frozen and to make it possible subsequently to thaw only the quantity required;
• wrap up the food in aluminium foil or
polythene and make sure that the
packages are airtight;
• do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to
touch food which is already frozen,
thus avoiding a rise in temperature of
the latter;
• lean foods store better and longer
than fatty ones; salt reduces the storage life of food;
• water ices, if consumed immediately
after removal from the freezer compartment, can possibly cause the skin
to be freeze burnt;
• it is advisable to show the freezing in
date on each individual pack to enable
you to keep tab of the storage time.
5.2 Hints for storage of frozen
food
To obtain the best performance from
this appliance, you should:
• make sure that the commercially frozen foodstuffs were adequately stored
by the retailer;
• be sure that frozen foodstuffs are
transferred from the foodstore to the
freezer in the shortest possible time;
• not open the door frequently or leave
it open longer than absolutely necessary;
• once defrosted, food deteriorates rapidly and cannot be refrozen;
• do not exceed the storage period indicated by the food manufacturer.

6. CARE AND CLEANING
CAUTION!
Unplug the appliance before carrying out any maintenance operation.
This appliance contains hydrocarbons in its cooling unit; maintenance and recharging must
therefore only be carried out by
authorized technicians.
6.1 Periodic cleaning
The equipment has to be cleaned regularly:
• clean the inside and accessories with
lukewarm water and some neutral
soap.
• regularly check the door seals and
wipe clean to ensure they are clean
and free from debris.
• rinse and dry thoroughly.
Do not pull, move or damage
any pipes and/or cables inside
the cabinet.
Never use detergents, abrasive
powders, highly perfumed cleaning products or wax polishes to
clean the interior as this will damage the surface and leave a
strong odour.
Clean the condenser (black grill) 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.
Take care of not to damage the
cooling system.
7. WHAT TO DO IF…
WARNING!
Before troubleshooting, disconnect the mains plug from the
mains socket.
Only a qualified electrician or
competent person must do the
troubleshooting that is not in this
manual.
Many proprietary kitchen surface cleaners contain chemicals that can attack/
damage the plastics used in this appliance. For this reason it is recommended
that the outer casing of this appliance is
only cleaned with warm water with a little
washing-up liquid added.
After cleaning, reconnect the equipment
to the mains supply.
6.2 Defrosting of the freezer
The freezer compartment of this model,
on the other hand, is a "no frost" type.
This means that there is no buildup 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.
6.3 Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for
long periods, take the following precautions:
• disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
• remove all food
• defrost (if foreseen) and clean the appliance and all accessories
• leave the door/doors ajar to prevent
unpleasant smells.
If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to check it once in a while to prevent the food inside from spoiling in
case of a power failure.
