and deep-frozen food for a long time.
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.
1. To freeze fresh food activate the
FROSTMATIC function at least 24
hours before placing the food to be
frozen in the freezer compartment.
2. Place the fresh food to be frozen in
the upper compartment.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours:
during this period do not add other food
to be frozen.
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 on the higher settings.
If large quantities of food are to be
stored, remove all drawers and baskets
from appliance and place food on
cooling shelves to obtain the best
performance.
WARNING!
Make sure that foods do not
exceed the load limit stated
on the side of the upper
section (where applicable)
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
characteristics 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.
ENGLISH

Small pieces may even be cooked still
frozen, directly from the freezer: in this
case, cooking will take longer.
4.4 Ice-cube production
This appliance is equipped with one or
more trays for the production of icecubes.
Do not use metallic
instruments to remove the
trays from the freezer.
1. Fill these trays with water
2. Put the ice trays in the freezer
compartment.
4.5 Cold accumulators
One or more cold accumulators are
supplied in the freezer; these increase
the length of time for which food will
keep in the event of a power failure or
breakdown.
4.6 Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are
equipped with a series of runners so that
the shelves can be positioned as desired.
For better use of space, the front halfshelves can lie over the rear ones.
4.7 Positioning the door
shelves
To permit storage of food packages of
various sizes, the door shelves can be
placed at different heights.
4.8 Carbon Air Filter
Your appliance is equipped with a
carbon filter CLEANAIR CONTROL
behind a flap in the rear wall of the fridge
compartment.
C L E A N A I R
C O N T R O L
The filter purifies the air from unwanted
odours in the fridge and LONGFRESH
compartment meaning that the storage
quality will be further improved.
During the operation, always
keep the air ventilation flap
closed.
4.9 LONGFRESH
Compartment
In the LONGFRESH 0°C compartment
the temperature is controlled
automatically. It stays constantly at about
0°C, no adjustment is necessary.
The constant storage temperature of
about 0°C and the relative humidity of
between 45 and 90 % provide optimal
conditions for the various kinds of food.
You can therefore store a
variety of fresh food in the
LONGFRESH 0°C
compartment, where it will
last up to 3 times longer with
better quality compared to
normal refrigerator
compartments. This allows
you to stock more fresh
food. Taste, degree of
freshness, quality and
nutritional values (vitamins
and minerals) are well
preserved. Loss of weight in
vegetables and fruit
diminishes. Food yields a
higher degree of nutritional
value.
The LONGFRESH 0°C
compartment is also suitable
for defrosting food. In this
case the thawed food can be
stored up to two days .

www.aeg.com
The level of air humidity in
the drawers depends on the
content of humidity in the
stored food, vegetable and
fruit and on the frequency of
door opening The Longfresh
0°C compartment is also
suitable for slow thawing of
food. In this case the thawed
food can be stored in the
Longfresh 0°C compartment
for up to two days.
Tips:
• Pay attention to the freshness of the
food, especially on the expiry date.
Quality and freshness influence the
storage time.
• The whole storage cycle time will
depend on the preservation
conditions made prior to the final
storage in the fridge.
• Food, fruit or vegetables should
always be packed or wrapped up
before storage.
• Animal food always store packed and
dry.
• Food rich in proteins will go bad
quicker. This means seafood will spoil
before fish which in turn will spoil
before meat. While storing food in a
0°C compartment storage time for
that kind of food can be increased by
up to three times as well without loss
on quality.
• All food stored in a 0°C compartment
should be taken out of the drawers
roughly 15-30 min before
consumption, particularly fruit and
vegetables to be consumed without
any additional cooking process.
Allowing fruit and vegetables to
return to room temperature will
improve the texture and flavour.
5. HINTS AND TIPS
5.1 Normal operating sounds
The following sounds are normal during
operation:
• 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 the ambient temperature is high
and the Temperature Regulator is set
to low temperature and the appliance
is fully loaded, the compressor may
run continuously, causing frost or ice
on the evaporator. If this happens, set
the Temperature Regulator toward
warmer settings to allow automatic
defrosting and so a saving in
electricity consumption.
• If foreseen, do not remove the cold
accumulators from the freezer basket.
5.3 Hints for fresh food
refrigeration
To obtain the best performance:
• do not store warm food or
evaporating liquids in the refrigerator
• do cover or wrap the food, particularly
if it has a strong flavour
• position food so that air can circulate
freely around it
5.4 Hints for refrigeration
Useful hints:
• Meat (all types) : wrap in polythene
bags and place on the glass shelf
above the vegetable drawer.
• For safety, store in this way only one
or two days at the most.
• Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc..:
these should be covered and may be
placed on any shelf.
ENGLISH
• Fruit and vegetables: these should be
thoroughly cleaned and placed in the
special drawer(s) provided.
• Butter and cheese: these should be
placed in special airtight containers or
wrapped in aluminium foil or
polythene bags to exclude as much
air as possible.
• Bottles: these need a cap and should
be stored on the door bottle shelf, or
(if equipped) on the bottle rack.
• Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic,
if not packed, must not be kept in the
refrigerator.
5.5 Hints for freezing
To help you make the most of the
freezing process, here are some
important hints:
• the maximum quantity of food which
can be frozen in 24 hrs. 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;
• 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.
5.6 Hints for storage of frozen
food
To obtain the best performance from this
appliance, you should:
• 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.
