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
• 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.
• 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.
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.
4
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 and/or 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 put 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 and/or
freezer (e.g. electric ice cream makers, mixers etc.).
• Before cleaning the appliance, always switch off the appliance and
unplug it, or pull the house fuse or switch off the circuit breaker.
• When unplugging always pull the plug from the mains socket, do
not pull on the cable.
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.
• Under no circumstance should you attempt to repair the appliance
yourself. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause
injury or serious malfunctioning. Contact your local AEG Service
Force Centre.

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.

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.
Your refrigerator needs air
For correct operation this appliance must be located in a dry atmosphere, away from heat sources, e.g. cookers, radiators, boilers and
direct sunlight.
You should also ensure that air can circulate freely around the back
and the top of the cabinet. There should be 100mm (4”) between the
top of the cabinet and any overhanging kitchen furniture.
Alternatively allow 50mm (2”) between the top of the cabinet and any
overhanging kitchen furniture and a gap of 25mm (1”) on either side
of the appliance.

Starting up and temperature regulation
☞
Insert the plug of the connection lead into the plug socket with protective earth contact. When the refrigerator compartment door is opened, the internal lighting is switched on.
The temperature selector knob is
located on the right hand side of the
refrigerator compartment.
Setting “0” means: Off.
Turning clockwise in direction “1”:
Refrigerating unit on and the
refrigerator operates automatically.
Setting “1” means:
Hightest temperature, warmest setting.
Setting “6” (end-stop) means:
Lowest temperature, coldest setting.
AEG62
The temperatures in the refrigerator compartment and freezer compartment cannot be independently regulated.
At a low ambient temperature of around 16°C, setting “1” should be
selected. At ambient temperatures of around 25°C, select setting “2”.
If you require a lower temperature, select setting “3” or “4”. On this
setting , you can be sure the fresh food will be reliably frozen and that
a storage temperature of -18°C will be maintained in the freezer compartment.
If you want the freeze fresh food rapidly, select setting “6”, ensuring
that the temperature in the refrigerator compartment does not drop
below 0°C. You should also promptly reset the temperature regulator
to setting “3” or “4" once the fresh food has frozen.
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 “3” to “4”). At this setting the compressor will be
switched on and off as usual and automatic defrosting recommenced.

The length of storage time depends on the type of food - see manufacturer’s instructions.
However, small quantities of fresh foods can be frozen (see: “Freezing
and storage”).
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.
• 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.
15
☞
☞
• Please note the maximum storage times specified by the
manufacturer.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into
meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
• 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 freezer compartment.
• Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer. 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.
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.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
stick to the food and cause skin abrasions.
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.
Preparation of Ice Cubes

☞ To
under running water for a few seconds.
16
Important! Never try to free an ice tray that is frozen to the freezer
compartment using pointed or sharp edged objects, since you may
damage the refrigerating circuit. Use the plastic scraper.
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 evaporates by itself.
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 the soft plastic 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.
Remove frozen food, wrap it in several layers of newspaper and store
it, covered, in a cool place.
Switch off the appliance and unplug it, or pull the fuse or switch off
the circuit breaker.
Remove the stopper from the meltwater outlet and place a bowl
underneath it to catch the meltwater.
Tip: You can speed up the defrosting
process by placing a pan with warm
water in the freezer compartment and
closing the doors. Remove pieces of
ice that have fallen before they
completely defrost.
After defrosting, thoroughly clean the
freezer compartment ( see "Cleaning and Care" section).
17
Switching off the appliance

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.
Defrost the freezer compartment prior to cleaning (see “Defrosting”
section).
Switch the appliance off and remove the plug from the mains, or
switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or fuse.
Clean the appliance and the interior accessories with a cloth and
lukewarm water. Commercially available dish washing detergents may
also be used.
After cleaning wipe with fresh water and rub dry.
Accumulation of dust at the condenser increases energy consumption.
For this reason carefully clean the condenser at the back of the
appliance once a year with a soft brush or a vacuum cleaner.
Check the water drain hole on the rear
wall of the fridge.
Clear a blocked drain hole with the aid of
the green peg in the pack of accessories
included with the appliance.
After everything is dry place appliance
back into service.
Energy Saving Tips
• Do not install the appliance near cookers, radiators or other sources

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.
