5.6.4 SuperFrost
With this function you can freeze fresh food quickly
through to the core. The appliance operates with
maximum refrigeration. The noise of the refrigeration
unit may be temporarily louder as a result.
In addition, frozen food already in storage is given a “cold
reserve”. The food stays frozen longer as a result when you
defrost the appliance.*
You can freeze as many kilograms of fresh food within 24 hrs as
is indicated on the type plate under “Freezing capacity ... kg/
24hrs”. This maximum freezing quantity can vary depending on
model and climate class.
You have to activate SuperFrost in good time, depending on
how much fresh food is to be frozen: about 6 hours before
placing the food inside in case of small amounts and about 24
hours in advance in case of the maximum amount of food to be
frozen.
Wrap produce and spread it out as far as possible. Do not allow
produce to be frozen to touch produce that is already frozen to
prevent the latter thawing.
You do not have to activate SuperFrost in the following cases:
- when placing frozen food in the freezer
- when freezing up to approx. 2 kg fresh food daily

Producing ice cubes*
The production capacity depends on the freezer temperature.
The lower the temperature, the more ice cubes can be
produced in a specific period.
* Depending on model and options
Maintenance
The ice cubes drop from the IceMaker into the drawer. When a
certain filling level has been reached, no further ice cubes are
produced. The IceMaker does not fill the drawer right up to the
brim.
Distribute the ice cubes evenly in the drawer to increase the
capacity.
If large quantities of ice cubes are needed, the complete
IceMaker drawer can be exchanged for the adjacent drawer.
When the drawer is closed, the IceMaker automatically recommences production.
Once the IceMaker has been switched on for the first time, it
may take up to 24 hours until the first ice cubes are produced.
Note
When the appliance is used for the first time and if it has been
out of use for a long time, particles may collect in the IceMaker
and/or water conduit.
u Do not use or consume ice cubes that have been made 24
hours after the first ice cubes are made.
