DEFROSTING
From time to time the frost should be removed from the walls and shelves
inside the
appliance.
Attention: Do not
use sharp objects for this purpose since they could
permanently damage the appliance. Use the plastic scraper
provided.
To defrost the
appliance completely (this should be done at least once every
month), disconnect the plug and leave the door open until the frost has
completely thawed.

During the whole operation it is advisable to wrap any frozen food in several
