sound signal alarm will turn
on.
2. Push the FROSTMATIC switch and
the sound signal alarm will get off.
3. Push the FROSTMATIC switch once
again and the FROSTMATIC light will
light up. The appliance will start to
operate.
3.3 Switching off
Turn the Temperature regulator to the
"O" position and a sound is on only for 2
seconds .
The power indicator light will switch off.
3.4 Temperature regulation
The temperature is regulated
automatically.
4
5
5 Alarm light
A medium setting is
generally the most suitable.
However, the exact setting
should be chosen keeping in
mind that the temperature
inside the appliance
depends on:
• room temperature,
• how often the door is
opened,
• the quantity of food
stored,
• the location of the
appliance.
1. Turn the Temperature regulator
toward lower settings to obtain the
minimum coldness.
2. Turn the Temperature regulator
toward higher settings to obtain the
maximum coldness.
ENGLISH
CAUTION!
If the ambient temperature
is high or the appliance is
fully loaded, and the
appliance is set to the lowest
temperatures, it may run
continuously causing frost to
form on the rear wall. In this
case the dial must be set to
a higher temperature to
allow automatic defrosting
and therefore reduced
energy consumption.
3.5 FROSTMATIC function
The FROSTMATIC function accelerates
the freezing of fresh food and, at the
same time, protects foodstuffs already
stored from undesirable warming.
Press the FROSTMATIC button.
The FROSTMATIC indicator appears.
This function stops automatically after 28
hours.
To switch off the function before its
automatic end repeat the procedure
until the FROSTMATIC indicator goes
off.
The function switches off by
selecting a different set
temperature.
3.6 Door open alarm
An acoustic alarm will sound if the door
is left open for a few minutes. The door
open alarm conditions are indicated by:
• a flashing Alarm indicator;
• an acoustic buzzer.
When normal conditions are restored
(door closed), the alarm will stop. The
buzzer can also be switched off by
pressing any button.
3.7 High temperature alarm
If the temperature inside the freezer has
risen to a point where the safe storage of
frozen food is no longer ensured (for
example due to an power failure), the
Alarm light will blink and an acoustic
alarm will sound.
When the freezer is first
switched on, the Alarm light
blinks until the temperature
has dropped to a safe level
for the storage of frozen
food.
1. Switch off the warning tone by
pressing the FROSTMATIC switch.
The FROSTMATIC indicator appears.
The Alarm light blinks until the required
temperature has been reached again.
2. Release theFROSTMATIC switch as
soon as the Alarm light is off.
The FROSTMATIC indicator turns off.
3.8 High temperature alarm
An increase in the temperature in the
freezer compartment (for example due to
an earlier power failure) is indicated by:
• flashing of the alarm and freezer
temperature indicators;
• sounding of the buzzer.
Press any button to reset the alarm.
The buzzer switches off.
The freezer temperature indicator shows
the highest temperature reached for a
few seconds. Then show again the set
temperature.
The alarm indicator continues to flash
until the normal conditions are restored.
4. DAILY USE
WARNING!
Refer to Safety chapters.
4.1 Freezing fresh food
The freezer compartment is suitable for
freezing fresh food and storing frozen
and deep-frozen food for a long time.
7
To freeze fresh food activate the
FROSTMATIC function and place the
food to be frozen in the freezer
compartment.
The maximum amount of food that can
be frozen in 24 hours is specified on the
rating plate, a label located on the
inside of the appliance.
8
www.aeg.com
The freezing process lasts 24 hours:
during this period do not add other food
to be frozen.
When the freezing process is completed,
return to the required temperature (see
"FROSTMATIC Function").
4.2 Storage of frozen food
When first starting-up or after a period
out of use, before putting the products
in the compartment let the appliance run
at least 2 hours with the FROSTMATIC
function turned on.
In the event of accidental
defrosting, for example due
to a power failure, if the
power has been off for
longer that the value shown
in the technical data chart
under "Rising time", the
defrosted food must be
consumed quickly or cooked
immediately and then refrozen (after cooling).
4.3 Thawing
Deep-frozen or frozen food, prior to
being used, can be thawed in the
refrigerator compartment or at room
temperature, depending on the time
available for this operation.
Small pieces may even be cooked still
frozen, directly from the freezer: in this
case, cooking will take longer.
4.4 Cold accumulators
The freezer contains at least one cold
accumulator which increases storage
time in the event of a power cut or
breakdown.
This shall be placed on top of the frozen
food in the front part.
5. HINTS AND TIPS
5.1 Normal operating sounds
5.3 Hints for freezing
The following sounds are normal during
operation:
To help you make the most of the
freezing process, here are some
important hints:
• A faint gurgling and bubbling sound
from coils sound when refrigerant is
pumped.
• A whirring and pulsating sound from
the compressor when refrigerant is
pumped.
• A sudden cracking noise from inside
appliance caused by thermic
dilatation (a natural and not
dangerous physical phenomenon).
• A faint click noise from the
temperature regulator when the
compressor switches on or off.
5.2 Hints for energy saving
• Do not open the door frequently or
leave it open longer than absolutely
necessary.
• If foreseen, do not remove the cold
accumulators from the freezer basket.
• the maximum quantity of food which
can be frozen in 24 hours is shown on
the rating plate;
• the freezing process takes 24 hours
no further food to be frozen should
be added during this period;
• freeze only top quality, fresh and
thoroughly cleaned, foodstuffs;
• prepare food in small portions to
enable it to be rapidly and completely
frozen and to make it possible
subsequently to thaw only the
quantity required;
• wrap up the food in aluminium foil or
polythene and make sure that the
packages are airtight;
• do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to
touch food which is already frozen,
thus avoiding a rise in temperature of
the latter;
ENGLISH
• lean foods store better and longer
than fatty ones; salt reduces the
storage life of food;
• water ices, if consumed immediately
after removal from the freezer
compartment, can possibly cause the
skin to be freeze burnt;
• it is advisable to show the freezing in
date on each individual pack to
enable you to keep tab of the storage
time.
5.4 Hints for storage of frozen
food
9
• make sure that the commercially
frozen foodstuffs were adequately
stored by the retailer;
• be sure that frozen foodstuffs are
transferred from the foodstore to the
freezer in the shortest possible time;
• not open the door frequently or leave
it open longer than absolutely
necessary;
• once defrosted, food deteriorates
rapidly and cannot be refrozen;
• do not exceed the storage period
indicated by the food manufacturer.
To obtain the best performance from this
appliance, you should:
