The green pilot lamp (3), which comes on when the appliance is switched
on and the mains voltage is available. In this position, the refrigerating unit
will operate automatically.
Temperature adjustment with ambient temperature below +16°C
When the ambient temperature in the room in which the appliance is situated is less than 16°C, the ambient switch (2) must be depressed. The yellow
pilot light (1) above the switch comes on. In this way, when the ambient
temperature is low, the compressor operates for longer periods to ensure
that the storage temperature of -18°C is maintained inside the freezer compartment.
Important!
If the ambient temperature rises to above +16°C, de-activate the ambient
switch in order to avoid unnecessary energy consumption. The yellow pilot
light goes out.
Starting up and temperature regulation
• Wash the inside of the appliance with lukewarm water with a little
bicarbonate of soda added (5ml to 0.5 litre of water). Do not use soap
or detergent as the smell may linger. Dry the appliance thoroughly.
• When the refrigerator compartment door is opened, the internal lighting
is switched on. The temperature regulator is located on the top of the
appliance.
7
Setting “0”: Off.
Setting “1”: Highest temperature, (warmest setting).
Setting “4” (end-stop) : Lowest temperature, (coldest setting).
The exact setting should be chosen keeping in mind that the temperature
inside the refrigerator depends on:
-the quantity of food stored
-how often the door is opened
The temperatures in the refrigerator compartment and freezer compartment cannot be independently regulated.
If you want to freeze fresh food rapidly, select setting “4”, ensuring that the
temperature in the refrigerator compartment does not drop below 0°C. You
should promptly reset the temperature regulator to setting “2” or “3”, if this
does occur.
Important!
High ambient temperatures (e.g. on hot summer days) and a cold setting of
the temperature regulator (position"3" to "4") can cause the compressor to
run continuously.
If this happens, turn the temperature regulator back to a warmer setting
(position "2" to "3"). At this setting the compressor will be switched on and
off as usual and automatic defrosting recommenced.

Fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance:
• do not store warm food or evaporating liquid in the refrigerator
• do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong flavour.
• Position food so that air can circulate freely around it.
Useful hints:
Meat (all types): wrap in polythene bags and place on the glass shelf above
the salad drawer(s).
For safety, store in this way for only one or two days at the most.
Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc: these should be covered and may be placed
on any shelf.
Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly cleaned and placed in the
salad drawer(s) provided.
Butter and cheese: these should be placed in special airtight containers
or wapped in aluminium foil or polythene bags to exclude as much air as
possible.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap and should be stored in the bottle
rack on the door.
Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not packed, must not be kept in
the refrigerator.

necessary.
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. The quality of the food is best preserved
when it is frozen right through to the core as quickly as possible.
• Allow warm food to cool down before freezing. The warmth will cause
increased ice formation and increase the power consumption.
• Please note the maximum storage times specified by the manufacturer.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into meals)
may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
• Containers with flammable gases or liquids can leak at low temperatures.
There is a risk of an explosion! Do not store any containers with flammable materials such as, for example, spray cans, fire extinguisher refill cartridges etc in the refrigerator/freezer.
• Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer. They can burst when
the contents freeze, high carbonate content drinks can even explode!
Never store lemonade, juices, beer, wine, sparkling wine etc. in the freezer.
• 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.
Important! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
freeze to the food.
To achieve faster freezing of food or to freeze the maximum allowed quantity, depress the ambient switch 12 hours before loading the food without
modifying the thermostat setting.
Place the food to be frozen in the top drawer. Unfrozen food must not touch items already frozen, otherwise the frozen food could begin to defrost.
Do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than absolutely
necessary.

Frozen food Symbols/Freezing Calendar
Energy Saving Tips
• Do not install the appliance near cookers, radiators or other sources of
continuous warmth. High ambient temperatures cause longer, more frequent operation of the compressor.
• Ensure sufficient air circulation at the appliance base and at the back wall
of the appliance. Never cover air vent openings.
• Do not place warm foods into the appliance. Allow warm foods to cool
first.
• Do not leave the door open any longer than necessary.
• Do not set temperature any colder than necessary.
• Put frozen food in the fridge to defrost. The cold in the frozen food will
then be used to cool the fridge.
Accumulation of dust on the condenser increases energy consumption. For
this reason carefully clean the condenser at the back of the appliance once
a year with a soft brush or a vacuum cleaner. Ensure the appliance is
switched off.
Something Not Working
Warning!
Repairs should only be carried out by qualified service engineers. Repairs
carried out by inexperienced persons may cause injury or serious malfunctioning.
Possible Cause
Appliance is not switched on
Appliance does not work.
Preparation of Ice Cubes
1.
2.
Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place it in the freezer compartment and leave to freeze.
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 the ice scraper supplied.
Defrosting
If the appliance is not functioning correctly, please carry out the following checks before contacting your local AEG Service Force Centre.
Symptom
• 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.
Remedy

Refrigerator
Frost is automatically eliminated from the evaporator of the refrigerator
compartment every time the motor compressor stops, during normal use.
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.
Freezer
The freezer compartment, however, will become progressively covered with
frost. This should be removed with the special plastic scraper provided,
whenever the thickness of the frost exceeds 4 mm. During this operation it
is not necessary to switch off the power supply or to remove the foodstuffs.
