appliances and is not suitable for household room
illumination.
Suggestion for Energy Saving
••Ensure there is sufficient space between stored
foods. This allows cold air to be circulated evenly
and lowers electricity bills.
••Store hot food only after it has cooled in order to
prevent dew or frost.
••When storing an appliance in the freezer
compartment, set the freezer temperature lower
than the temperature indicated on the appliance.
••Do not set the temperature of the appliance lower
than needed. For ice making in normal climates,
the freezer temperatures should be set to -19 or
colder.

fridge compartment. Keep a distance of at least 3
cm from the sensor.
••Please note that a temperature rise after
defrosting has a permissible range in the
appliance specifications. If you wish to minimise
the impact this may have on the food storage due
