Defrosting the appliance. Groupe Brandt KGIT122FD | Manualzz

Partially thawed or defrosted foods should be used as soon as possible. Cold air preserves the food but it does not destroy microorganisms which rapidly activate themselves after defrosting and make foods perishable.

Partial defrosting reduces the nutritional value of food, especially fruits, vegetables and readymade meals.

Defrosting the appliance

Refrigerator needs no special defrosting procedure, because ice deposited at the inner back wall is defrosted automatically.

Ice deposited on the inner back wall during the compressor operation is defrosted when the compressor stops operating, and condensed water drops are drained through the outlet in the inner back wall into the drain pan situated above the compressor where it evaporates. In case you should notice excessive ice formation at the rear refrigerator panel (3-5 mm thick), switch the appliance off and thaw it manually.

• Clean the freezer when the frost layer in the freezer reaches thickness of around 3-5 mm.

• 24 hours before defrosting activate the fast freeze function

(see relevant control chapter depending upon the model of the appliance – fast freezing) for continuous operation in order to additionally freeze the food inside. After that period take the food out of the freezer and protect them from excessive thawing.

• Switch the appliance off (see the relevant control chapter for ON/OFF function) and pull the power cord from the wall socket.

• Place a convenient absorbent cloth underneath to collect the defrost water and change it periodically.
