fresh food compartment and freezer
compartment. Thus, air in the fresh food
compartment and freezer compartment
do not get mixed. Thanks to these two
separate cooling systems, cooling speed
is much higher then other refrigerators.
Odours in the compartments do not
get mixed. Also additional power saving
is provided since the defrosting is
performed individually.

Explanations
This is the normal recommended setting.
These settings are recommended when the ambient
temperature exceeds 30°C.
Use when you wish to freeze your food in a short
time. Your refrigerator will return to its previous mode
when the process is over.
If you think that your fridge compartment is not cold
enough because of the hot conditions or frequent
opening and closing of the door.
You can use it when your fridge compartment is
overloaded or if you wish to cool down your food
rapidly. It is recommended that you activate quick
fridge function 4-8 hours before placing the food.
Freezing fresh food
• It must be preferred to wrap or cover
the food before placing them in the
refrigerator.
• The foodstuff that you want to freeze
must be fresh and in good quality.
• Food to be frozen must be put in the
freezer compartment. (They should not
be allowed to come in contact with
the previously frozen items to prevent
their partial thawing. Freezing capacity
of our product is given in the technical
specifications of your refrigerator.)
• Foodstuff must be divided into portions
according to the family’s daily or meal
based consumption needs.
• Periods given in the information about
deep freeze must be obeyed for
storage times.
• The foodstuff must be packaged in an
airtight manner to prevent them from
drying even if they are going to be kept
for a short time.
• Frozen food must be used immediately
after they are thawed and they should
never be re-frozen.
• Hot food must cool down to the room
temperature before putting them in the
refrigerator.
• Materials to be used for packaging
must be tear-proof and resistant to
cold, humidity, odor, oils and acids and
they must also be airtight. Moreover,
they must be well closed and they must
be made from easy-to-use materials
that are suitable for deep freeze usage.
15
• Please observe the following
instructions to obtain the best results.
1. Do not freeze too large quantities of
food at one time. The quality of the
food is best preserved when it is frozen
right through to the core as quickly as
possible.
EN
2. Placing warm food into the freezer
compartment causes the cooling
system to operate continuously until the
food is frozen solid.
3. Take special care not to mix already
frozen food and fresh food.
Recommendations for
preservation of frozen food
• Prepacked commercially frozen
food should be stored in accordance
with the frozen food manufacturer's
instructions for a frozen food storage
compartment.
• To ensure that the high quality achieved
by the frozen food manufacturer and
the food retailer is maintained, the
following should be remembered:
1. Put packages in the freezer as quickly
as possible after purchase.
2. Ensure that contents are labeled and
dated.

Deep-freeze information
Defrosting
The freezer compartment defrosts
automatically.
Food must be frozen as rapidly as
possible when they are put in a
refrigerator in order to keep them in
good quality.
The requires (according to certain
measurement conditions) the refrigerator
to freeze at least 4.5 kg of foodstuff at
32°C ambient temperature to -18°C or
lower within 24 hours for every 100-liters
of freezer volume.
16
EN
It is possible to keep the food for
a long time only at -18°C or lower
temperatures.
You can keep the freshness of food
for many months (at -18°C or lower
temperatures in the deep freeze).
WARNING! A
• Foodstuff must be divided into portions
according to the family’s daily or meal
based consumption needs.
• Foodstuff must be packaged in an
airtight manner to prevent them from
drying even if they are going to be kept
for a short time.
Materials necessary for packaging:
• Cold resistant adhesive tape
• Self adhesive label
• Rubber rings
• Pen
Materials to be used for packaging
the foodstuff must be tear-proof and
resistant to cold, humidity, odor, oils and
acids.
Foodstuff to be frozen should not be
allowed to come in contact with the
previously frozen items to prevent their
partial thawing.
Frozen food must be used immediately
after they are thawed and they should
never be re-frozen.

Blue light
Sliding Body Shelves
(in some models)
Foodstuff stored in the crispers that are
enlightened with a blue light continue
their photosynthesis by means of the
wavelength effect of blue light and thus,
preserve their freshness and increase
their vitamin content.
Sliding body shelves can be pulled
by slightly lifting up from the front and
moved back and forth. They come to a
stop point when pulled towards front to
allow you reach the foods placed at the
back of the shelf; when it is pulled after
slightly lifted upwards at the second stop
point, the body shelf will be released.
The shelf should be hold tightly from the
bottom as well in order to prevent it from
tipping over. The body shelf is placed on
the rails at the sides of the refrigerator
body by bringing it to one lower or one
upper level.
The body shelf should be pushed
backwards to seat it completely.
Egg tray
You can install the egg holder to the
desired door or body shelf.

Ion:
(in some models)

Air is ionized by means of the ionizer
system in the fridge compartment air
duct. Thanks to this system, air-borne
bacteria and particles that cause odor
are removed.

EN
Crisper humidity control
sliders
Crisper of your refrigerator is designed
specially to keep your vegetables freshly
without loosing their humidity. Cold air
circulates basically around the crisper
and the amount of the cold air passing
through the crisper is controlled by the
sliders on the front side of the crisper
cover.
You can adjust the humidity control
sliders to a suitable position according
to the humidity and cooling condition of
your food in the crisper.
If you want your food in the crisper
to cool more, open the holes of the
humidity control sliders and if you want
them to cool less and keep their humidity
for a longer time, close the holes.

Icematic
* When the Icematic water supply
reservoir (1) is removed from its place
in order to fill it up, it must be replaced
within two minutes after it is filled with
water. The nozzle of the system will
open and the Icematic cells will be filled
with water automatically as soon as the
cartridge is seated in its place. Your ice
will be ready approximately in two 2
hours.
• Do not remove the Icematic (2) from its
seating to take ice.

serve the ice cubes.
• If you wish, you may keep the ice
cubes in the ice bank.
The ice bank is just for accumulating
ice cubes. Do not put water in it.
Otherwise, it will break.
About water supply reservoir
Remove the water supply reservoir and
fill it up with water. After filled up with
water, the reservoir must be pushed

7 Recommended solutions for the problems
Please review this list before calling the service. It might save you time and money.
This list includes frequent complaints that are not arising from defective workmanship
or material usage. Some of the features described here may not exist in your
product.
The refrigerator does not operate.
• Is the refrigerator properly plugged in? Insert the plug to the wall socket.
• Is the fuse of the socket which your refrigerator is connected to or the main fuse
blown out? Check the fuse.
Condensation on the side wall of the fridge compartment (MULTIZONE, COOL
CONTROL and FLEXI ZONE).
• Very cold ambient conditions. Frequent opening and closing of the door. Highly
humid ambient conditions. Storage of food containing liquid in open containers.
Leaving the door ajar. Switching the thermostat to a colder degree.
• Decreasing the time the door left open or using it less frequently.
• Covering the food stored in open containers with a suitable material.
• Wipe the condensation using a dry cloth and check if it persists.
Compressor is not running

plug-out plug-ins as the refrigerant pressure in the cooling system of the refrigerator
has not been balanced yet. Your refrigerator will start running approximately after 6
minutes. Please call the service if the refrigerator does not startup at the end of this
period.
