starts being displayed again. The interior temperature
slowly adjusts to the new setting.
5.7.5 SuperFrost
With this function you can rapidly freeze fresh
food through to the core. The appliance works
with maximum refrigerating performance. The
sound of the refrigeration unit may be temporarily
louder as a result.
Depending on how much fresh food is to be frozen you
must switch SuperFrost on in advance - for a small
amount of food to be frozen, about 6 hours, for the
maximum amount about 24 hours before putting the food
in.
Package the food and place it inside across as wide an
area as possible. Do not bring food that is to be frozen into
contact with products that are already frozen to prevent
these items from starting to thaw.
You do not need to switch SuperFrost on in the following
cases:
- when placing frozen food in the freezer
- when freezing up to about 1 kg of fresh food a day
Freezing with SuperFrost
u Briefly press the SuperFrost button Fig. 3 (9) once.
w The SuperFrost symbol Fig. 3 (10) lights up.
* Depending on model and options
w The freezing temperature drops and the appliance
operates at its maximum refrigeration power rating.
When a small amount of food is to be frozen.
u Wait approx. 6 hrs.
u Place packaged food in the upper drawers.
When the maximum amount of food is to be frozen.
u Wait approx. 24 hrs.
u Remove upper drawers and place the food directly onto
the upper shelves.
w SuperFrost automatically switches itself off after about
65 hours.
w The SuperFrost symbol Fig. 3 (10) goes out when the
freezing process is complete.
u Place food inside the drawers and push them closed
again.
w The appliance returns to work in the energy-saving
normal mode.
5.7.6 Drawers
Note
Insufficient ventilation results in an increase in energy
consumption and reduction of the refrigerating performance.
For appliances with NoFrost:
u Leave the bottom drawer in the appliance.
u Never block the air slits in the fan on the rear wall.
u To store frozen food directly on the shelves: pull the
drawer forward and lift it out.
5.7.7 Shelves
u To remove shelf: lift it at
the front and pull out
forward.
u To reinsert shelf: simply
slide it in as far as it will go.
5.7.8 VarioSpace
In addition to the drawers,
you can also take out the
shelves. This gives you
space for large frozen items.
Poultry, meat, large joints of
game and tall bakery items
can be frozen and then
presented whole.
11
Operation
u Each drawer can hold up
to 55.12 lbs (25 kg) of
frozen food; each plate
can hold up to 77.16 lbs
(35 kg).

5.7.10 IceMaker*
The IceMaker is in the top drawer of the freezer compartment.
Make sure that the following conditions are fulfilled:
- The appliance is level.
- The appliance is connected to the electricity supply.
- The freezer compartment is switched on.
- The minimum freezer temperature is 14 °F (-10 °C).
- The IceMaker is connected to the water supply.
- All air was bled from the waterline before starting the
icemaker. The icemaker will only work if there is no air
in the waterline.
12
Producing ice cubes*
The production capacity depends on the freezer temperature. The lower the temperature, the more ice cubes can
be produced in a certain period.
The production capacity is 90- 100 ice cubes in 24 hours
at a freezing temperature of 0 °F (-18 °C).
To have the maximum capacity of approx. 130 ice cubes
in 24 hours, activate the SuperFrost Function. Be aware
that this increases the energy consumption because the
compressor will run constantly.
The ice cubes fall out of the IceMaker into the drawer.
When the ice cubes reach a certain height in the drawer,
no more ice cubes can be produced. The IceMaker will
not fill the drawer to the top.
Evenly distribute the ice cubes in the drawer in order to
increase the filling capacity.
If large quantities of ice cubes are required, the complete
IceMaker drawer can be swapped with the neighboring
drawer. When you close the drawer, the IceMaker automatically restarts production.
When the IceMaker is switched on for the first time, it may
take up to 24 hours for the first ice cubes to be produced.
Note
Particles may accumulate in the IceMaker or water line the
first time the appliance is used or after an extended period
out of service.
u Do not use or consume ice cubes that are produced
within 24 hours of the first ice cube production.
Setting the water supply time*
The opening time of the valve on the IceMaker can be
adjusted if, for example, the water pressure in the pipe is
too low or too high.
The water supply time can be set in stages from E1 (short
supply time) to E8 (long supply time). The default setting
is E3.
u Activate setting mode: press and hold the SuperFrost
button Fig. 3 (9) for approximately 5 s.
