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.
• Ensure that the appliance does not stand on the electrical supply
cable. Important: if the supply cable is damaged, it must be replaced
by authorised service or qualified personnel using a special cable of
the same type.
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
4
Important Safety Instructions
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
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 disconnect from the electricity supply.
• Placing frozen goods on the top of the appliance can lead to the
accumulation of condensation in the cavity of the storage tray
through contact with the cold. Electronic components are housed
within this cavity. If condensation should drip onto these components, the appliance could be damaged by a short circuit. For this
reason do not place frozen goods on top of the appliance.
• 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.
5
Disposal
• 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 sound! They can be disposed of 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 ensures that playing children do not lock
themselves inside 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
Your freezer needs air
For correct operation this appliance must be located in a dry atmosphere, away from heat sources, e.g. cookers, radiators, boilers and
direct sunlight.
You should also ensure that air can circulate freely around the back
and the top of the cabinet. There should be 100mm (4”) between the
top of the cabinet and any overhanging kitchen furniture.
Alternatively allow 50mm (2”) between the top of the cabinet and any
overhanging kitchen furniture and a gap of 25mm (1”) on either side
of the appliance.
If your appliance is installed under a
continuous worktop, an air outlet
opening of at least 200 cm2 and a
ventilation grille (A/B) matching the
worktop design should be installed at
the rear of the worktop.
The cut surfaces of the worktop (C)
should be varnished to avoid swelling
due to penetration of moisture.

Freezing and storing frozen food
Interior Accessories
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.
• 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.
16
Freezing and storing frozen food
☞
☞
☞
☞
To freeze the maximum quantity shown on the rating plate press the
FROSTMATIC button 24 hours prior to freezing, or 4 to 6 hours for
smaller quantities. Yellow display lights up.
The FROSTMATIC button need not be pressed for freezing of small
quantities.
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 (1) and (2) equipped with its own refrigerated shelves. Unfrozen food must not touch items already frozen, otherwise the frozen food could begin to defrost. Freezer drawers (3) and
(4) should only be used for storage of frozen food.
Place frozen foods in the drawers sorted by type, as far as possible.
Once the required storage temperate has been reached, press the
FROSTMATIC button again. The yellow light goes out.
The appliance’s electronics switch off the FROSTMATIC function automatically after 24 hours. The yellow light goes out. You can also end
the FROSTMATIC function manually by pressing the FROSTMATIC button again.
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.
17
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 pretreating before freezing. The lower value applies to foods with high
fat content.
Preparation of Ice Cubes
☞
☞
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
☞
18
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.
Switch on the FROSTMATIC function a few hours before defrosting to
make sure frozen food remains sufficiently frozen.
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.

Malfunctions
If the electronics in the appliance have detected a fault that prevents
the ACTUAL temperature being measured, all the lights in the temperature display will flash. The appliance will continue to function using a
backup program until your local Service Force engineer has repaired
the appliance.
Cleaning and Care
☞

20
For hygienic reasons the appliance interior, including interior accessories, should be cleaned regularly.
Warning!
• The appliance must not be connected to the mains during cleaning.
Danger of electrical shock! Before cleaning switch the appliance off
and remove the plug from the mains, or switch off or disconnect
from the electricity supply.
• Never clean the appliance with a steam cleaner. Moisture could
accumulate in electrical components and there is a danger of an
electric shock. Hot vapours can lead to the damage of plastic parts.
• The appliance must be dry before it is placed back into service.
Important!
• Ethereal oils and organic solvents can attack plastic parts, e.g.
– lemon juice or the juice from orange peel;
– butyric acid;
– cleansers which contain acetic acid.
Do not allow such substances to come into contact with appliance
parts.
• Do not use any abrasive cleansers.
Remove frozen food and wrap it in several layers of newspaper. Store it
in a cool place, well covered.
Defrost the appliance prior to cleaning (see “Defrosting” section).
Switch off the appliance and unplug it.
Clean the appliance and the interior accessories with a cloth and lukewarm water with a little bicarbonate of soda added (5ml to 0.5 litres
of water).
After cleaning wipe with fresh water and rub dry.
☞
After everything is dry, switch to FROSTMATIC function and switch off
the audible warning signal. Immediately replace the previously
removed food in the freezer. When the red warning light goes out,
turn the FROSTMATIC function off.
Accumulation of dust at the condenser increases energy consumption.
For this reason carefully clean the condenser at the back of the appliance once a year with a soft brush or a vacuum cleaner.
Magnetic door seal
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 temperature
display.
• Put frozen food in the fridge to defrost. The cold in the frozen food
will then be used to cool the fridge.
• Always keep the heat emitting condenser, the metal grille on the rear
wall of your appliance clean.

Technical terminology
The refrigerant circuit has been checked for leaks.
This appliance is in accordance with the following EU guidelines:
– 73/23/EWG dated 19 February 1973 - low voltage guidelines.
– 89/336/EWG dated 3 May 1989 (including guideline change
notice 92/31/EWG) - EMV guideline
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.
