Appliance Description

Freezer tray

In the freezer section there is a freezer tray in the second drawer from the top. It can be used in both the top drawer and the second drawer from the top.

Berries and vegetables, for example, can be pre-frozen on the freezer tray.

Advantage: The berries are not squeezed and maintain their natural form. The frozen berries can then be stored in compartments or drawers packaged in individual portions.

Cold Accumulation Block

A cold accumulation block is enclosed with the appliance.

3

In the event of power failure or a malfunction of the appliance, the cold accumulation block will increase the hold over period by several hours. The cold accumulation block cools best if it is placed in the top drawer at the front on the frozen food. If the freezer section is only partially filled, pack the frozen food together as tightly as possible, so that in the event of a power cut the cold remains in the frozen food for longer.

When freezing food, place the cold accumulation block on the already frozen food to prevent defrosting due to the warmth of the food that is being frozen.

When defrosting the appliance place the cold accumulation block on top of the frozen food to keep it cold.

The block may also be used in a cool bag to keep the temperature of food down during transportation.

Refer to the section "Prior to Initial Start-Up" regarding the freezing of the cold accumulation block.

818 36 55-00/3

Appliance Description

ACTUAL temperature means:

The temperature display indicates the current temperature inside the fridge or the freezer compartment. The ACTUAL temperature is indicated with static illuminated numbers.

3

Once the COOLMATIC- or the FROSTMATIC function has been switched on the DESIRED temperature that was set originally for the fridge or the freezer cannot be changed.

Temperature Displays

The temperature displays shows several types of information.

• In normal operation the average temperature in the fridge section is displayed (ACTUAL temperature). The variations in temperature in the whole fridge section are small.

• In the freezer section the warmest temperature is displayed (ACTUAL temperature). When fully filled, the warmest zone is normally located at the top in the front area of the freezer section. Depending upon how the section is filled, the temperatures are lower in other areas of the freezer section.

• While the temperature is being set, the currently set fridge and freezer section temperatures flash in the display (DESIRED temperature).

Tip: When changing the temperature setting wait about 24 hours until the temperature display has stabilised.

Storage Shelves

The storage shelves can be adjusted to various heights:

0

1. Pull the storage shelf forward until it can be tipped up or down and removed.

2. To insert at a different height use the same procedure in reverse.

Variable Inner Door

The door compartments can be pulled up and removed, and inserted at other positions as needed.

LONGFRESH 0 °C cold zone

The LONGFRESH 0 °C cold zone consists of 2 drawers provided with slide controls to set the air moisture.

In the LONGFRESH 0 °C cold zone the temperature is automatically controlled. It remains constant at about 0 °C, no setting is required.

The low storage temperature of around 0 °C and the air moisture that can be regulated result in optimum storage conditions for various foodstuffs.

Compared to the normal fridge zone, fresh food can be stored in the

LONGFRESH 0 °C cold zone for longer while keeping the same quality.

High levels of taste and freshness, vitamins and minerals are retained.

Weight loss in fruit and vegetables is reduced. Nutrition levels in your food are higher as a result.

3

The LONGFRESH 0 °C cold zone is also suitable for slowly defrosting frozen food. If you do this, the defrosted food can be kept in the

LONGFRESH 0 °C cold zone for up to two days.

To use the maximum fridge section space, you can take the drawers out of the appliance. The storage conditions then correspond to the “Dry“ setting (only for packaged food).

818 36 55-00/3

Interior Accessories

Setting the air moisture

The two drawers can be used independently of one another with higher or lower air moisture according to the storage conditions required.

The air moisture can be set with the aid of the slide control on the front of each drawer.

• Dry: a low relative air moisture is obtained when both controls are slid to position c

, i.e. the air holes are fully opened.

• Moist: a high relative air moisture is obtained when both controls are slid to position a

, i.e. the air holes are fully closed.

The air moisture in the drawers depends upon the moisture content of the food stored and upon how often the door is opened.

Quick Chill Shelf

The quick chill shelf can be placed in one of the upper grooves. To maintain the best performance the shelf should be placed in the second groove from the top.

Bottle- and Can Holder

The side of the bottle- and can holder is moveable to enable a more flexible placement of cans and bottles in front of the air discharge grill. To alow the holder to be moved easier when moving sideways, press the shelf backwards.

The bottle support can be pulled out when chilling larger bottles.

Dismantling of the Bottle- and Can Holder

0

Correct storage

A fan provides for quick cooling of the food and an even temperature distribution in the fridge zone and in the

LONGFRESH 0 °C cold zone.

Foods with different perishability can therefore be arranged on the shelves as you like, without having to take into account the different temperature zones which usually occur. The arrangement (see fig.) indicates possible ways of storing food.

In order to check the temperature on the shelves you can carry out the following test yourself:

0

1. Place a cup of water in the centre of the said shelf with a thermometer inside.

2. Leave the fridge door closed overnight and check the temperature first thing in the morning.

3. At this point the temperature should read no more than 5 °C; if it does, you need to adjust the temperature regulator to a colder setting.

For further information on keeping food cool and safe a guide published by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food is available and can be obtained free of charge by contacting:

Foodsense, London SE99 7TT. Tel: 0645 556000

Food that is sensitive to cold temperatures should not be stored in the

LONGFRESH 0 °C cold zone:

• citrus and tropical fruits, such as pineapples, bananas, grapefruits, melons, mangoes, papayas, oranges, lemons, kiwi fruit.

• hard cheese, potatoes, vegetables that are sensitive to cold temperatures such as cucumbers, peppers, aubergines, avocados, half ripe tomatoes, beans, courgettes.

Tips:

• When shopping always look for the freshest foods. Quality and freshness are crucial to how long food can be kept.

• Always store meat and fish wrapped and dry.

• Foodstuffs rich in protein spoil more quickly: Shellfish and crustaceans go off more quickly than fish and fish in turn goes off more quickly than meat. By storing them in the 0°C section, the storage period even for these foodstuffs can be increased by up to 3 times without loss of quality.

• All food that is stored in the LONGFRESH 0 °C cold zone should be removed from the drawers approx. 15 - 30 minutes before consumption. Aroma and taste develop at room temperature and the enjoyment of the food is increased.

• Food stored in the refrigerator compartment should always be covered or packed so that they do not dry out, lose their flavour, or transfer their flavour to any other refrigerated food. The following are suitable for packing:

– polyethylene bags;

– plastic containers with lids;

– special plastic covers with rubber retainers;

– aluminium foil.

818 36 55-00/3

To obtain the best performance from your refrigerator/freezer:

• Do not store warm food or evaporating liquids.

• 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 around each item.

Freezing

Except for the bottom drawer, which serves only for storage purposes, all compartments and drawers in the freezer compartment are suitable for freezing fresh food.

Warning!

• Before foods are frozen, the actual temperature in the freezer compartment must be -18 °C or colder.

• Please observe indicated freezing capacity on the rating plate. The freezing capacity represents the maximum amount of fresh goods that can be frozen within 24 hours. If you freeze goods on several days, one after the other, freeze amounts equal to 2/3 to 3/4 of the capacity indicated on the rating plate.

• When freezing large amounts of frozen food, place the frozen freezer block at the front of the middle drawer in the freezer section on the already frozen food.

• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.

0

1. Place the packaged frozen foodstuffs in the bottom drawer. Pack together as tightly as possible, to prevent loss of coldness and place the freezer block on top.

Take care: Do not touch frozen foods with wet hands. Your hands could freeze onto them.

2. Before freezing, wrap up all foodstuffs to be frozen in airtight packaging, so that they do not dry out, do not lose their taste and there can be no transfer of taste to other frozen foods. Place the food to be frozen in the top drawer(s). Non-frozen goods must not touch already frozen goods, as otherwise the frozen goods can defrost.

3

When using the max. freezer capacity, set the operating mode

FROSTMATIC for 24 hours before freezing – with smaller amounts 4 to

6 hours are sufficient.

The FROSTMATIC mode need not to be set for freezing of small quantities of up to 3 kg.

818 36 55-00/3

35

36

3

The appliance electronics automatically switch the FROSTMATIC operating mode off after a period of approx. 52 hours at the latest. You can also stop the FROSTMATIC operating mode manually by switching to normal operation.

Tips:

• The following are suited for the packaging of frozen goods:

– freezer bags and polyethylene wraps;

– plastic containers for frozen foods;

– extra-thick aluminium foil

• The following are suited for sealing bags and wraps: plastic clips, rubber bands or adhesive tape.

• Press air out of bags and wraps before sealing, because air encourages drying of frozen goods.

• Make flat packages, because these freeze more quickly.

• Do not fill plastic containers for frozen foods to the brim with liquid or paste-like goods, because liquids expand during freezing.

Frozen Storage

Warning! Before initial loading of the freezer compartment with previously frozen goods, the required storage temperature of -18 °C must be reached.

• 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.

• If the freezer section is only half filled, pack the frozen food together as tightly as possible. This ensures that the cold is retained in the frozen food for longer in the event of a power cut.

2

When possible store frozen goods separately according to type in drawers.

818 36 55-00/3

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.

Preparation of Ice Cubes

0

1. Fill ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water and place in a drawer and allow to freeze.

2. To remove the finished ice cubes twist the ice cube tray or hold under running water for a short time.

Warning! Do not, under any circumstances, free an ice tray which is frozen to the appliance with pointed or sharp edged objects. Use a spoon-handle or similar object.

Defrosting

Fridge zone and LONGFRESH 0 °C cold zone defrost automatically

The electronics start the defrosting cycle in the refrigerator every time the compressor stops.

The water collects in the discharge trough at the back wall of the refrigerator, and is fed through the discharge opening in the catch tray at the compressor where it is evaporated.

818 36 55-00/3

38

Defrosting

Freezer Compartment Defrosting

Moisture is precipitated in the form of white frost in the freezer compartment during operation and when the door is opened, especially in the middle at the top. Remove this white frost from time to time with a soft plastic scraper, e.g. a dough scraper. Do not under any circumstances use hard or pointed objects for this purpose.

The appliance should be defrosted when the thickness of the white frost has reached about 4 mm; but at least once a year in any case. A convenient time for defrosting is any time when the appliance is empty, or only minimally loaded.

1

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, because they may be health endangering and/or contain substances damaging to plastics.

0

1. About 12 hours prior to defrosting set the operating mode to FROST-

MATIC in order to build up sufficient chill reserve for the interruption in operation.

Caution! Do not touch frozen goods with wet hands. Hands can freeze to the goods.

2. Remove frozen goods, pack them in several layers of newspaper, cover them and store them in a cool place.

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.

• A murmuring noise can be made by the flows of air created by the fan.

Food Storage

To obtain the best performance from your refrigerator/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 around each item.

2

Energy Saving Advice

• 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 compartment.

• 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.

What to do if ...

Before contacting your local Service Force Centre, check the following points.

Symptom Solution

No power to the appliance.

Appliance cools too much.

The temperature in the refrigerator/ freezer is too high.

Check there is power at the socket

Check there is not a power cut by checking the household lights.

Check the fuse has not blown.

Temperature is set too cold.

Temporarily select a higher temperature setting.

Check the ambient temperature is within the appliances operating limits

Check the temperature setting is correct relative to ambient conditions.

In the display, “POWER” is displayed.

Symptom Solution

Excessive build up of frost.

The compressor runs continuously

If the door seal is not airtight (probably after reversing the door) 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.

Adjust the temperature to give correct temperature control.

Check that the doors are closed.

Large quantities of food have recently been placed in the cabinet and/or door is frequently opened.

Check that air ventilation is not obstructed.

Refer to Normal Operating Sounds Noise

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.

In-guarantee customers should ensure that the above checks have been made as the engineer will make a charge if the fault is not a mechanical or electrical breakdown.

Please note that proof of purchase is required for in-guarantee service calls.

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.
