Starting up and temperature regulation
Important! Only use the appliance when built–in!
1. Connect the appliance to the mains electricity supply.
When the refrigerator compartment door is opened, the internal lighting is switched on.
The temperature control knob is
located on the right hand side of the
refrigerator compartment.
Setting “0” means: Off.
2. Turn the control knob clockwise past
“1”. The refrigerating unit is now on
and operates automatically.
Setting “1” means:
Hightest temperature, warmest setting.
Setting “6” (end-stop) means:
Lowest temperature, coldest setting.
Note: From a food safety point of view +5 °C should be considered
sufficiently cold for storing food in the fridge.
At a low ambient temperature of around 16°C, setting “1” should be
selected. At ambient temperatures of around 25°C, select setting “2”. If
you require a lower temperature, select setting “3” or “4”.
☞
AEG62
Important!
High ambient temperatures (e.g. on hot summer days) and a cold setting on the thermostat (position”5” to “6”) can cause the compressor
to run continuously.
Reason: when the ambient temperature is high, the compressor must
run continuously to maintain the low temperature in the appliance.
The fridge will not be able to defrost since automatic defrosting of the
fridge is only possible when the compressor is not running (see also
"Defrosting" section). The result is the build up of a thick layer of frost
on the fridge rear wall.
If this happens, turn the thermostat knob back to a warmer setting
(position “3” to “4”). At this setting the compressor will be switched on
and off as usual and automatic defrosting recommenced.

Variable Inner Door
The door compartments can be pulled up and removed, and inserted at
other positions as needed.
Correct storage
For physical reasons, there are different
temperature regions in the fridge. The
coldest region is on the lowest storage
shelf. Warmer regions are the top storage shelf, the vegetable drawer and the
storage compartments on the door. The
arrangement example shows at which
places in the refrigerator suitable temperatures for various types of foods exist.
The length of storage time depends on
the type of food - see manufacturer’s
instructions.
Tip: Food in the fridge should always be covered or packaged, to prevent drying and tainting of other food.
The following are suited for packaging:
– Polyethylene airtight bags and wraps;
– Plastic containers with lids;
– Special plastic covers with elastic;
– aluminium foil.
Defrosting
The fridge defrosts automatically
The rear wall of the fridge covers with frost when the compressor is
running, and defrosts when the compressor is off. The water from the
thawing frost evaporates by itself.
The water drainage hole must be cleaned regularly (see the section
"Cleaning and Care").

cause the refrigerant to boil and vaporise.

Closed circulation system that contains the refrigerant. The refrigerant circuit comprises primarily of an evaporator, a compressor, a condenser and pipe work.
• Evaporator
The refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator. Similar to all other
liquids, refrigerant requires heat to evaporate. This heat is removed
from the interior of the appliance, as a result the interior is cooled.
The evaporator is therefore located inside the appliance or placed in
foam immediately behind the inner wall and thus not visible.
• Compressor
The compressor looks like a small drum. It is driven by a built-in
electric motor and is mounted on the base of the appliance at the
rear. The task of the compressor is to draw in vaporised refrigerant
from the evaporator, to compress it, and to pass it on to the condenser.
• Condenser
The condenser normally has the form of a grid. The refrigerant compressed in the compressor is liquefied in the condenser. During this
process, heat is released to the surrounding air at the surface of the
condenser. The condenser is mounted on the base of the appliance.
