Important Safety Instructions
These warnings are provided in the interests of your safety. Ensure
you fully understand them before installing or using the appliance.
Your safety is of paramount importance. If you are unsure about the
meaning of these warnings contact the Customer Care Department
for assistance.
Intended use
• The freezer is intended for use in the home. It is suitable for the freezing of fresh food and storing frozen food, as well as for making
ice. If the appliance is used for purposes other than those intended
or used incorrectly, no liability can be accepted by the manufacturer
for any damage that may be caused.
• Alterations or changes to the freezer are not permitted for reasons
of safety.
• If you use the freezer in a commercial application or for purposes
other than the freezing or frozen storage of foods, the manufacturer
accepts no liability for any damages which may occur.
Prior to initial start–up
• Check the appliance for transport damage. Under no circumstance
should a damaged appliance be plugged in. In the event of damage,
please contact your supplier.
Refrigerant
The refrigerant isobutane (R600a) is contained within the refrigerant
circuit of the appliance, a natural gas with a high level of environmental compatibility, which is nevertheless flammable.
• During transportation and installation of the appliance, be certain
that none of the components of the refrigerant circuit become
damaged.
• If the refrigerant circuit should become damaged:
– avoid open flames and sources of ignition;
– thoroughly ventilate the room in which the appliance is situated.
Safety of children
• Packaging (e.g. wraps, polystyrene) can be dangerous for children.
There is a risk of suffocation! Keep packaging material away from
children!
• Please make old appliances unusable prior to disposal. Pull out the
mains plug, cut off the mains cable, break or remove spring or bolt
catches, if fitted. By doing this you ensure that children cannot lock
4
themselves in the appliance when playing (there is risk of
suffocation!) or get themselves into other dangerous situations.
• Often children cannot recognise the hazards present in household
appliances. It is therefore important that you ensure adequate
supervision and never let children play with the appliance!
Daily Operation
• 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 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. Exception: high alcohol content spirits can be
stored in the freezer.
• Do not put ice creams or ice cubes in the mouth immediately after
removal from the freezer. Very cold ice can freeze to the lips or tongue and cause injury.
• Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could stick
to the food causing skin abrasions.
• Do not operate any electrical appliances in the refrigerator/freezer
(e.g. electric ice cream makers, mixers etc.).
• Before cleaning the appliance, always switch off the appliance and
unplug it, or pull the house fuse or switch off the circuit breaker.
• When unplugging always pull the plug from the mains socket, do
not pull on the cable.
In case of malfunction
• If a malfunction occurs on the appliance, please look first in the
"What to do if ..." section of these instructions. If the information
given there does not help, please do not perform any further repairs
yourself.
• This product should be serviced by an authorised engineer and only
genuine spare parts should be used.
• Under no circumstances should you attempt to repair the appliance
yourself. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause
injury or serious malfunctioning. Contact your local AEG Service
Force Centre.

Disposal
Appliance Packaging Information
All materials are environmentally friendly! They can be dumped or
burned at an incinerating plant without danger.
About the materials: The plastics can be recycled and are identified as
follows:
>PE< for polyethylene, e.g. the outer covering and the bags in the
interior.
>PS< for polystyrene foam, e.g. the pads, which are all free of chlorofluorocarbon.
The carton parts are made from recycled paper and should be disposed
of at a waste-paper recycling collection location.
Disposal of old Appliances
For environmental reasons, refrigeration appliances must be disposed
of properly. This applies to your old appliance, and - at the end of its
service life - for your new appliance as well.
Warning! Before disposing of old appliances make them inoperable.
Remove plug from mains, sever the power cable, remove or destroy
any snap or latch closures. This eliminates the danger that playing
children lock themselves into the appliance (danger of suffocation!) or
place themselves into other life-endangering situations.
Disposal:
• The appliance may not be disposed of with domestic waste or bulky
refuse.
• The refrigerant circuit, especially the heat exchanger at the back of
the appliance, must not be damaged.
• Information concerning collection schedules or locations can be
obtained from your local Council or Environmental Health Office.

Installation
Installation Location
The appliance should be set up in a well ventilated, dry room.
Energy use is affected by the ambient temperature.
The appliance should therefore
– not be exposed to direct sunlight;
– not be installed next to radiators, cookers or other sources of heat;
– only be installed at a location whose ambient temperature
corresponds to the climate classification, for which the appliance is
designed.
The climate classification can be found on the rating plate, which is
located at the left on the inside of the appliance.
The following table shows which ambient temperature is correct for
each climate classification:

Please check whether, after installing your appliance and especially
after reversing the door, the door seal seals right round. A badly fitting
door seal may lead to heavy frosting and result in a higher power consumption (see also “What to do if ...”).
Power supply
☞
A correctly installed, earthed socket is required for the electrical supply.
The supply must have a fuse rating of at least 10 Amps. If the socket is
not accessible once the appliance is built in, the electrical installation
must include suitable means of isolating the appliance from the mains
(e.g. a fused spur).
Before initial start-up, refer to the appliance rating plate to ascertain if
supply voltage and current values correspond with those of the mains
at the installation location.
e.g.: AC 220 ... 240 V 50 Hz or
220 ... 240 V ~50 Hz
(i.e. 220 to 240 volts alternating current, 50 Hertz)
The rating plate is inside the appliance on the left.

is activated again.
The temperature regulator (1) can be used to set the required storage
temperature, -18°C or colder.
Setting “1” means:
highest, warmest internal temperature
Setting “4” means:
lowest, coldest internal temperature
Recommended regulator setting:
1.5 to 2.
Important: Regularly check on the red temperature pilot light (4) and
the thermometer that the required storage temperature is being maintained.
Ice pack
There is an ice pack in one drawer of the freezer.
Refer to the section “Prior to Initial Start–Up” concerning freezing of
the ice pack.
In the event of a power failure or malfunction, the ice pack will
lengthen the amount of time it takes for the frozen food to defrost by
several hours.
The ice pack can only fulfil this task if it is placed in the uppermost
drawer, at the front, above the frozen food.
You can use the ice pack for cooling cold bags.
Freezing and storing frozen food
You can use your freezer for freezing fresh food yourself.
Important!
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18°C or
colder before freezing food.
18
☞
☞
☞
• 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.
Press the fast freeze button for the freezing of fresh food. The yellow
light illuminates.
To utilise the maximum rated freezing capacity, switch on the fast
freeze switch 24 hours before freezing is due to start (the yellow light
illuminates). For smaller amounts the fast freeze switch should be
switched on 4 - 6 hours in advance.
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
stick to the food and cause skin abrasions.
Place the packed food in the drawers. Place food to be frozen in the
appliance´s two top drawers (3) equipped with its own refrigerating
unit. Unfrozen food must not touch items already frozen, otherwise
the frozen food could begin to defrost. Freezer drawers (4) should
only be used for storage of frozen food.
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 "Frozen Food Symbols/Freezer Calendar" section). This will
give you a better overview of the contents, avoid extended door
opening and therefore save electricity.
19
☞
Once the required storage temperate has been reached, press the fast
freeze button again. The yellow light goes out.
Tips:
• The following are suited for the packaging of frozen goods:
– freezer bags and polyethylene wraps;
– special 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 containers for frozen goods to the brim with liquid or
paste–like goods, because liquids expand during freezing.
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 indextabs to the drawers, they can be
marked according to which type of
foods the individual compartments
contain.
Preparation of Ice Cubes
☞
☞
20
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
☞
☞
☞
☞
☞
☞
During use and when the door is opened, moisture is deposited as
frost inside the appliance, particularly on the evaporator melts. This
frost must be removed from time to time using the soft plastic
scraper supplied. Under no circumstances use hard or pointed objects
for this purpose.
The freezer should always be defrosted when the layer of frost has
reached a thickness of approx. 4 millimetres. Defrost should be carried
out once a year regardless of the amount of frost that has built up. A
good time for defrosting is when the appliance is empty or contains
only little food.
Each temperature rise reduces the keeping qualities of your frozen
food. Around 12 hours before defrosting your freezer, switch over to
fast freeze to build up a low temperature reserve in the frozen food.
Warning!
• Do not use electrical heating appliances or any other mechanical or
artificial devices to speed up the defrosting process.
• Do not use defrosting sprays, they can be hazardous to your health
and/or contain substances that damage plastics.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
stick to the food and can cause skin abrasions.
Remove frozen food, wrap it in several layers of newspaper and store
it, covered, in a cool place.
Switch off the appliance and unplug it, or pull the fuse or switch off
the circuit breaker.
Remove all drawers except the bottom one. The bottom drawer serves
as a practical container to collect the water from the thawing ice.
Tip: To speed up the defrosting process, place a pan with warm water
in the appliance and close the door. Remove pieces of ice that have
fallen before they completely defrost.
Remove the bottom drawer and dry the interior of the bottom compartment thoroughly.
After defrosting, thoroughly clean the freezer compartment and interior fittings ( see "Cleaning and Care" section).
21
Switching off the appliance
☞
To switch off the appliance, turn the thermostat control knob to position "0".
If the appliance is not going to be used for an extended period:
Remove all deep-frozen packages as well as ice-trays.
Switch off the appliance by turning the temperature regulator to
position "0".
Remove the mains plug or switch off or disconnect from the electricity supply.
Defrost freezer and clean thoroughly (see section: “Defrosting and
Cleaning”).
Leave the door open to avoid the build up of odours.

After opening and closing the door of your freezer you will not be
able to open the door again immediately. This is because a vacuum
will have developed inside, keeping the door closed until the pressures
inside and outside the door have equalised. After a few minutes you
can easily reopen the door.

Energy Saving Tips
• Do not install the appliance near boilers, radiators or other sources
of heat. High ambient temperatures cause longer, more frequent
operation of the compressor.
• Ensure sufficient air circulation and exhaust 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.
• Check the storage temperature in the freezer on the thermometer.
• Put frozen food in the fridge to defrost. The cold in the frozen food
will then be used to cool the fridge.
