3. DAILY USE
3.1 Cleaning the interior
Before using the appliance for the first
time, wash the interior and all internal
accessories with lukewarm water and
some neutral soap so as to remove the
typical smell of a brand-new product,
then dry thoroughly.
Do not use detergents or abrasive powders, as these will damage the finish.
If “dEMo” appears on the Display, the
appliance is in demonstration mode: refer to “WHAT TO DO IF...” paragraph.
3.2 Freezing fresh food
The freezer compartment is suitable for
freezing fresh food and storing frozen
and deep-frozen food for a long time.
To freeze fresh food activate the FROSTMATIC function at least 24 hours before
placing the food to be frozen in the
freezer compartment.
Place the fresh food to be frozen in the
upper 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.
The freezing process lasts 24 hours: during this period do not add other food to
be frozen.
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 re-frozen (after
cooling).
3.4 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.
3.5 Ice-cube production
This appliance is equipped with one or
more trays for the production of icecubes. Fill these trays with water, then
put them in the freezer compartment.
Do not use metallic instruments
to remove the trays from the
freezer.
3.3 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.

3.7 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.
3.8 Positioning the door
shelves
To permit storage of food packages of
various sizes, the door shelves can be
placed at different heights.
3.9 Carbon Air Filter
C L E A N A I R
C O N T R O L
Your appliance is equipped with a carbon filter CLEANAIR CONTROL behind
a flap in the rear wall of the fridge compartment.
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.
3.10 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 compart-
ment, 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 .
10 www.aeg.com
3.11 Humidity control
Both drawers can be used according to
the desired storage conditions independently of each other with lower or
higher humidity.
Regulation for each drawer is separate
and is controlled using the slide valve at
the front of the drawer.
• „Dry“: low air humidity - up to 50 %
relative humidity
This humidity level is reached when
both sliders are set into this position
and the ventilation openings are
wide open.
• Humid“: high relative humidity - up to
90%
This humidity level is reached when
both sliders are set in this position
and the ventilation openings
are closed. Humidity is kept and can
not escape.
3.12 Drawer
The wire shelves inside the drawers permit that air can circulate freely and consequently a better conservation of foods.
The compartment has stops to prevent
the drawers from falling out when fully
extended.
To remove the drawers (e.g. for cleaning
purposes), pull them out as far as the
stops, lift and extract.

Cakes containing cream and other kinds of pastry products can
be stored in the Longfresh 0°C
compartment for 2 or 3 days.
Not to be placed in the Longfresh 0°C compartment:
• cold sensitive fruit which have
to be stored at cellar or room
temperature like pineapple,
bananas, grapefruit, melons,
mango, papaya, oranges, lemons, kiwi fruit.
• The types of food not mentioned above should be stored
in the refrigerator compartment (e.g. all sorts of cheese,
cold cuts, etc.)
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.
• 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.

4. HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS
4.1 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.
4.2 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
4.3 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.
ENGLISH
Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc..: these
should be covered and may be placed
on any shelf.
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.
Milk bottles: these should have a cap
and should be stored in the bottle rack
on the door.
Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if
not packed, must not be kept in the refrigerator.
4.4 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;
• only freeze 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;
13
• 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.
4.5 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.

damage the plastics used in this appliance. For this reason it is recommended
that the outer casing of this appliance is
only cleaned with warm water with a little
washing-up liquid added.
After cleaning, reconnect the equipment
to the mains supply.
5.2 Replacing the carbon filter
To get best performance the carbon air
filter should be changed once every
year.
New active air filters can be purchased
from your local dealer.
Refer to “Installation of the carbon air filter” for the instructions.
The air filter is a consumable accessory
and as such is not covered by the guarantee.
5.3 Defrosting of the
refrigerator
Defrosting of the fridge compartment is
automatic.
The water that forms flows into a recipient on the compressor and evaporates.
This recipient cannot be removed.
5.4 Defrosting the freezer
A certain amount of frost will always form
on the freezer shelves and around the
top compartment.
Defrost the freezer when the frost layer
reaches a thickness of about 3-5 mm.
About 12 hours prior to defrosting, set the Temperature regulator toward higher settings, in order to build up sufficient chill reserve for the interruption in operation.
ENGLISH
15
To remove the frost, follow the instructions below:
1. Switch off the appliance.
2. Remove any stored food, wrap it in
several layers of newspaper and put
it in a cool place.
CAUTION!
Do not touch frozen goods with
wet hands. Hands can freeze to
the goods.
3. Leave the door open and insert the
plastic scraper in the appropriate
seating at the bottom centre, placing a basin underneath to collect the
defrost water.
In order to speed up the defrosting process, place a pot of warm
water in the freezer compartment. In addition, remove pieces
of ice that break away before defrosting is complete.
4. When defrosting is completed, dry
the interior thoroughly and keep the
scraper for future use.
5. Switch on the appliance.
6. After two or three hours, reload the
previously removed food into the
compartment.
Never use sharp metal tools to scrape
off frost from the evaporator as you
could damage it.
Do not use a mechanical device or any
artificial means to speed up the thawing
process other than those recommended
by the manufacturer.
A temperature rise of the frozen food
packs, during defrosting, may shorten
their safe storage life.
5.5 Periods of non-operation
When the appliance is not in use for
long periods, take the following precautions:
• disconnect the appliance from electricity supply
• remove all food
• defrost (if foreseen) and clean the appliance and all accessories
• leave the door/doors ajar to prevent
unpleasant smells.
If the cabinet will be kept on, ask somebody to check it once in a while to prevent the food inside from spoiling in
case of a power failure.
