Movable shelves
The walls of the refrigerator are
equipped with a series of runners so
that the shelves can be positioned as
“Vital & frisch” 0°C
• In the “Vital & frisch” 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.
Positioning the door shelves
To permit storage of food packages of
various sizes, the door shelves can be
placed at different heights.
To make these adjustments proceed as
follows: Gradually pull the shelf in the
direction of the arrows until it comes free,
then reposition as required.
• You can therefore store a variety of
fresh food in the “Vital & frisch” 0°C
compartment, where it will last up
to 3 times longer with better quality
compared to normal refrigerator
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 “Vital & frisch” 0°C
compartment is also suitable for
defrosting food. In this case the
thawed food can be stored up to
two days in the “Vital & frisch” 0°C
• 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.
electrolux 31
Humidity control
• Both drawers can be used
according to the desired storage
conditions independently of each
other with lower or higher humidity.
“Vital & frisch” 0°C

• The wire shelves inside the drawers
permit that air can circulate freely
and consequently a better
conservation of foods.
Regulation for each drawer is
separate and is controlled using the
slide valve at the front of the
• “Dry”: low air humidity - up to 50 %
relative humidity.
This humidity level is reached when
both sliders are set into this
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.
Note: if large quantities of foods are to
be stored in the 0°C compartment, it is
possible to remove the bottom drawer.
32 electrolux
• Pay attention to the freshness of the
food, especially on the expiry date.
Quality and freshness influence the
storage time.
• Foods, and especially salad, must
be kept well covered or packaged
in such a way that they do not dry
out and that their flavours and
fragrances remain unchanged.
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.
• 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 “Vital & frisch” 0°C
compartment is also suitable for
slow thawing of food. In this case
the thawed food can be stored in
the “Vital & frisch” 0°C
compartment for up to two days.
Not to be placed in the “Vital &
frisch” 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.
