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 refrigerator is intended for use in the home. It is suitable for the cooling, freezing and storing of
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 refrigerator are not permitted for reasons of safety.
• If you use the refrigerator in a commercial application or for purposes other than the cooling, 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 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 compartment. 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 compartment.
• Do not place ice cream or ice cubes in the mouth immediately after removal from the freezer compartment. Very cold ice can freeze to the lips or tongue and cause injury.
• Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could freeze to the food.
• 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.
• When unplugging always pull the plug from the mains socket, do not pull on the cable.
22
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 Customer care
department.
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.
Remove transport packaging
The appliance and the interior fittings are protected for transport.
☞1. Pull off the adhesive tape on the left and right side of the door.
2. Remove all adhesive tape and packing pieces from the interior of the appliance.
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.
23
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:
Climate classification
for an ambient temperature of
SN
+10 to +32 °C
N
+16 to +32 °C
ST
+18 to +38 °C
T
+18 to +43 °C
If installation next to a source of heat is unavoidable, the following minimum clearances must be maintained at the sides of the appliance:
– for electric cookers 3 cm;
– for oil and coal fired ranges 30 cm.
If the refrigeration appliance is installed next to another refrigerator or freezer a clearance of 5 cm at
the sides is required, in order to prevent the formation of condensation on the outside of the appliance.
Models fitted for matching front panel (E-appliances)
Installation option 1 (optimum):
Optimum ventilation of E-appliances is ensured through fresh air
being able to enter both under the appliance as well as through an
opening in the furniture plinth. The warmed air must be able to be
exhausted upwards through the air shaft (min. 200 cm2) on the furniture back.
Installation option 2:
Operation of E-appliances is possible even without a ventilation
opening in the furniture plinth. The fresh air able to enter under the
appliance is sufficient for ventilation. The function and life of the
appliance are not impaired. The warmed air must be able to be
exhausted upwards through the air shaft (min. 200 cm2) on the furniture back. If the appliance is ventilated without a plinth opening,
however, the energy consumption may differ from that specified in
the brochure.
Important note! In order not to impair the function of the appliance,
never cover or obstruct the ventilation openings.
24
Door reversal (where necessary)
Warning!
When changing the side of the door opening, the appliance may not be connected to the mains. Remove
plug from the mains beforehand.

Electrical connection
☞
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.
The mains cable may only be changed by a qualified electrician or competent person. If your appliance
needs repairing, please contact your local Customer Care Department.

Prior to Initial Start–Up
clean the appliance interior and all accessories prior to initial start-up (see section: “Cleaning and
☞ Please
Care”).
30
Starting up and temperature regulation
Important! Only use the appliance when built–in!
The temperature regulator is in the refrigerator compartment on the upper right. It is also the ON/OFFswitch.
Position „0“ = Refrigeration off
Position „1“ = Warmest interior temperature
Position „6“ = Coldest interior temperature
1. Plug the mains plug into the mains socket.
2. Set the required temperature by turning the temperature
regulator.
AEG62
The inside light goes on. The compressor starts and then runs
automatically.
Note: When the setting is changed, the compressor does not start immediately if automatic defrosting is
currently taking place.
Goods to be refrigerated can be loaded immediately after switching on, because the storage temperature
in the refrigerator is quickly reached.
Important! Wait until the freezer compartment has reached a temperature of –18°C, before storing
frozen food.
Note: From a food science point of view, +5°C for the refrigerator compartment and -18°C for the freezer compartment should be considered cold enough as a storage temperature.
The following effects are of significance in respect of the interior temperature:
– Ambient temperature;
– Quantity and temperature of the food stored;
– Frequency with which the door is opened and how long it is left open.
– A defect in the appliance.
The temperature regulator setting may therefore need to be adjusted to suit the specific conditions.
Recommended settings:
Examples:
☞
Ambient temperature
Temperature controller position
Approx. 10°C
Range up to 1
Approx. 16°C
Range about 2
Approx. 25°C
Range about 2
Approx. 32°C
2 to 3
Approx. 38°C
1 to 2
3. If you want a higher or lower temperature, turn the temperature regulator to a warmer or cooler setting
respectively.
Important!
High ambient temperatures (e.g. on hot summer days) and a cold setting on the temperature regulator
(position"5" to "6") can cause the compressor to run continuously.
Reason: when the ambient temperature is high, the compressor must run continuously to maintain the
low temperature in the appliance. The fridge will not be able to defrost since automatic defrosting of the
fridge is only possible when the compressor is not running (see also "Defrosting" section). The result is
the build up of a thick layer of frost on the fridge rear wall.
If this happens, turn the temperature regulator back to a warmer setting (position “4” to “5”). At this
setting the compressor will be switched on and off as usual and automatic defrosting recommenced.
31
Switching off the appliance
☞1. To switch off the appliance, turn the temperature regulator to position "0". The inside light goes out.
If the appliance is not going to be used for an extended period:
1. Switch off the appliance by turning the temperature regulator to position "0". The inside light goes out.
2. Remove the mains plug or switch off or disconnect from the electricity supply.
3. Clean thoroughly (see section: “Cleaning and Maintenance”).
4. Leave the door open to avoid the build up of odours.
☞
Interior Accessories
Storage Shelves/Storage Racks
Depending on the model, your appliance is equipped with either glass storage shelves or storage racks.
The glass shelf above the fruit and vegetable compartment must always remain in this position so that
fruit and vegetables stay fresh longer.
The remaining storage shelves can be adjusted to various heights:
1. Pull the storage shelf forward until it can be tipped up or down and
removed.
2. To insert at a different height use the same procedure in reverse.
☞
☞
Adjustment for tall goods (not for all models):
Remove the front half of the two-part vario glass storage shelf and
insert it at a different level. Space is thus gained for storage of tall
goods on the underlying storage shelf.
Variable Inner Door
The door compartments can be pulled up and removed, and inserted at other positions as needed.
32
Correct Storage
For physical reasons, there are different temperature regions in the
fridge.
The coldest region is on the lowest storage shelf.
Warmer regions are the top storage shelf, the vegetable basket and
the storage compartments on the door.
The arrangement example shows at which places in the refrigerator
suitable temperatures for various types of foods exist.
Tip: Food in the fridge should always be covered or packaged, to
prevent drying and tainting of other food.
The following are suited for packaging:
– Polyethylene airtight bags and wraps;
– Plastic containers with lids;
– Special plastic covers with elastic;
– aluminium foil.
Freezing and storing frozen food
The freezer compartment is for freezing and storing food.
Important!
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18°C or colder before freezing food or storing
food already frozen (for the recommended settings, see the table in the section "Starting up - Setting
the temperature").
• Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time (max. 2 kg per 24 hrs). 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 observe maximum storage times and expiry dates of frozen goods.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
• Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could stick to the food and cause skin
abrasions.
1. 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.
2. Lay the packaged food on the floor of the freezer compartment. Unfrozen food must not touch items
already frozen, otherwise the frozen food could begin to defrost.
Tips:
• The following are suited for the packaging of frozen goods:
– freezer bags and polyethylene wraps;
– special cans 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 cans for frozen goods to the brim with liquid or paste–like goods, because liquids expand
during freezing.
☞
Note for inspection authorities:
Batch plans for the determination of freezing performance or warm-up time can be requested directly
from the manufacturer.
33
Preparation of Ice Cubes
☞1. Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place it in the freezer compartment and leave to freeze.
2. 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 a spoon handle or similar.
Defrosting
The fridge defrosts automatically
The rear wall of the fridge covers with frost when the compressor is running, and defrosts when the
compressor is off.
The water from the thawing frost is collected in the drain channel on the rear of the fridge, feed
through the drain hole into the collector on the compressor, and then evaporated.
The water drainage hole must be cleaned regularly (see the section "Cleaning and Maintenance").
Defrosting the freezer compartment
During use and when the freezer compartment door is opened, moisture is deposited in the freezer compartment as frost. Remove this frost from time to time with a soft plastic scraper, e.g. a pastry scraper.
Under no circumstances use hard or pointed objects to remove frost. The freezer compartment should
always be defrosted when the layer of frost has reached a thickness of approx. 4 millimetres; however at
least once a year. A good time for defrosting is when the appliance is empty or contains only little food.
Warning!
• Do not use electrical heating appliances or any other mechanical or artificial devices to speed up the
defrosting process, with the exception of those recommended in these operating instructions.
• 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 cause skin
abrasions.
1. A few hours before defrosting, set the temperature controller to 6 in order to create a refrigeration
reserve in the frozen food.
2. Remove frozen food, wrap it in several layers of newspaper and store it, covered, in a cool place.
3. Remove the mains plug or switch off or disconnect from the electricity supply.
4. Remove the stopper from the meltwater outlet and place a
bowl underneath it to catch the meltwater.
Attention! After defrosting, replace the plug in the condensation
water drain.
Tip: You can speed up the defrosting process by placing a pan
with warm water in the freezer compartment and closing the
door. Remove pieces of ice that have fallen before they completely defrost.
5. After defrosting, thoroughly clean the freezer compartment (see
"Cleaning and Care" section). Replace the stopper in the meltwater outlet.
6. Put the food inside and put the unit back into operation.
☞
34
Cleaning and Care
For hygienic reasons the appliance interior, including interior accessories, should be cleaned regularly.
Warning!
• The appliance may 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 turn out the
circuit breaker or fuse.
• Never clean the appliance with a steam cleaner. Moisture could accumulate in electrical components,
danger of electrical 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.
1. Remove frozen food and the food from the refrigerator. Wrap frozen food in several layers of newspaper.
Store it in a cool place, well covered.
2. Defrost the freezer compartment prior to cleaning (see “Defrosting” section).
3. Remove the mains plug or switch off or disconnect from the electricity supply.
4. Clean the appliance and the interior accessories with a cloth and lukewarm water. Commercially available dish washing detergents may also be used.
5. After cleaning wipe with fresh water and rub dry.
6. Regularly unblock the condensation water drainage hole in the
rear wall of the refrigeration chamber with the aid of the green
strip inserted into the drainage hole.
7. After everything is dry place appliance back into service.
☞
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.
• Only leave door open as long as necessary.
• Do not set temperature any colder than necessary.
• Put frozen food in the fridge to defrost. The cold in the frozen food will then be used to cool the fridge.

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.
