Unplug or switch off at the mains supply.
Defrost freezer compartment and clean thoroughly (see section:
"Maintenance and Cleaning").
Leave door open after defrosting to avoid accumulation of odours.
Freezing
Except for the bottom drawer, which serves for storage purposes, all
compartments and drawers are suited for freezing.
Important!
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18 °C or colder before freezing food.
• Please observe the freezing capacity given on the rating plate. The
freezing capacity is the maximum quantity of fresh food that can be
frozen within a period of 24 hours. If you wish to freeze food several
days in a row, please observe a maximum capacity of only 2/3 to 3/4
of that on the rating plate.
• Allow warm food to cool down before freezing. The warmth will
cause increased ice formation and increase the power consumption.
• When freezing large quantities of food, place the frozen cold accumulation block at the front into the top compartment in the freezing
chamber.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into
meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
0 When freezing maximum capacity press the fast freeze button 24 hours
prior to freezing, or 4 to 6 hours for smaller quantities. Yellow indicator
light illuminates.
3
20
The fast freeze button need not be pressed for freezing of small quantities of up to 3 kg.
818 14 33-01/5
0 All foods must be packed air tight prior to freezing, so that they do not
dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of
other frozen goods occurs.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
freeze to the food.
0 Place the packed food in the drawers. Unfrozen food must not touch
items already frozen, otherwise the frozen food could begin to defrost.
Tips:
• The following are suited for the packaging of frozen goods:
– freezer bags and polyethylene wraps;
– plastic containers for frozen goods;
– extra–thick aluminium foil.
• The following are suitable for sealing bags and wrap:
plastic clips, rubber bands or tape.
• Smooth the air out of the bag before sealing; air makes it easier for
the frozen food to dry out.
• Make flat packages, because these freeze more quickly.
• Do not fill plastic containers for frozen goods to the brim with liquid
or paste–like goods, because liquids expand during freezing.
0 Once the required storage temperature has been reached, press the fast
freeze button again. The yellow light goes out.
Frozen Storage
Important! Wait until the necessary storage temperature of –18 °C has
been reached before storing food already frozen.
• Load freezer only with packaged frozen goods, so that they do not
dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of
other frozen goods can occur.
• Please observe maximum storage times and expiry dates of frozen
goods.
2
Place frozen foods in the drawers sorted by type, as far as possible.
Index tabs are supplied for placing on drawers. To mark the contents of
the individual drawers, press the index tab over the corresponding symbol (see "Storage Goods Symbols/Freezing Calendar" section). This will
give you a better overview of the contents, avoid extended door opening and therefore save electricity.
818 14 33-01/5
21
Preparation of Ice Cubes
0 Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place it in the freezer and
leave to freeze.
0 To loosen the frozen cubes, either bend the ice cube tray or hold it
under running water for a few seconds.
Important! Never try to free an ice tray that is frozen to the freezer
compartment using pointed or sharp edged objects. Use a soft plastic
scraper.
Storage Goods Symbols/Freezing Calendar
• The symbols on the drawers
show different types of frozen
goods.
• The numbers indicate storage times in months for the appropriate
types of frozen goods. Whether the upper or lower value of the indicated storage time is valid depends on the quality of the foods and
pre-treating before freezing. The lower value applies to foods with
high fat content.
• By attaching the included
index-tabs to the drawers, they
can be marked according to
which type of foods the individual compartments contain.
22
818 14 33-01/5
Defrosting
During use and when the door is opened, moisture is deposited as frost
inside the appliance, particularly on the evaporator. This frost must be
removed from time to time using a soft plastic scraper. Under no circumstances use hard or pointed objects for this purpose.
The freezer compartment should always be defrosted when the layer of
frost has reached a thickness of approx. 4 millimetres; however at least
once a year. A good time for defrosting is when the appliance is empty
or contains little food.

Warning!
• Do not use electrical heating appliances or any other mechanical or
artificial devices to speed up the defrosting process, with the exception of those recommended in these operating instructions.
• Do not use defrosting sprays, they can be hazardous to your health
and/or contain substances that damage plastics.
If large quantities of frozen goods are in storage, press the fast freeze
button about 12 hours prior to defrosting, so that the frozen goods can
build up a sufficient chill reserve.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
freeze to the food.
Remove frozen food, wrap it in several layers of newspaper and store it,
covered, in a cool place.
Unplug or switch off of mains.
Remove all the drawers. Remove
the pedestal cover (see "Changing
Over the Door Hinges" section).
Place the bottom drawer directly in
front of the appliance to collect the
water from defrosting and pull out
the water drain conduit.
Tip: In order to speed up the
defrosting process, place a pot of
hot water in the freezer
compartment. In addition, remove pieces of ice that break away before
defrosting is complete.
After defrosting, thoroughly clean the freezer compartment and
interior fittings ( see "Maintenance and Cleaning" section).

Hints and Tips
Normal Operating Sounds
• You may hear faint gurgling or bubbling sounds when the refrigerant
is pumped through the coils or tubing at the rear, to the cooling
plate/evaporator.
• When the compressor is on, the refrigerant is being pumped round
and you will hear a whirring sound or pulsating noise from the compressor.
• A thermostat controls the compressor and you will hear a faint click
when the thermostat cuts in and out.
Food Storage
To obtain the best performance from your freezer:
• Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.
• Do not store food uncovered.
• Keep the time between buying chilled food and placing it in your
freezer as short as possible.
• Do not push food together too much, try to allow air to circulate

• Do not install the appliance close to sources of heat, such as a cooker,
dishwasher or radiator.
• Locate the appliance in a cool well ventilated room and make sure
that the air openings of the appliance are not obstructed.
• Always leave warm food to cool down to room temperature before
placing in the freezer.
• Try to avoid keeping the door open for long periods or opening the
door too frequently as warm air will enter the cabinet and cause the
compressor to switch on unnecessarily often.
• Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the door from closing
properly.

Something not Working
Before contacting your local service force centre, check the following
points.
Sympton
Solution
Check there is power at the socket
No power to the appliance.
Check there is not a power cut by
checking the household lights.
Check the fuse has not blown.
Check the ambient temperature is within
the appliances operating limits
The temperature in the freezer is too high. Check the temperature regulator is turned
to the correct setting relative to ambient
conditions.
Adjust the temperature regulator to give
correct temperature control.
Check that the door is closed.
The compressor runs continuously
Large quantities of food have recently
been placed in the cabinet and/or door is
frequently opened.
Check that air ventilation is not
obstructed.
Excessive build up of frost.
If the door seal is not airtight (probably
after changing over the door hinges)
apply warm air to the non sealing area
using a hair dryer set to a gentle heat. (do
not use a fan heater for this purpose).
This will make the rubber more supple
and allow it to revert to its original shape.
Noise
Refer to Normal Operating Sounds
The compressor does not start immediately after changing the temperature setting.
This is normal, the compressor starts after
a period of time.
If after the above checks there is still a fault, call your local AEG Service
Force Centre.

Technical Terminology
• Refrigerant
Liquids that can be used to a generate a cooling effect are known as
refrigerants. They have a relatively low boiling-point, indeed so low,
that the warmth from the food stored in the fridge or freezer can
cause the refrigerant to boil and vaporise.
• Refrigerant Circuit
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.
