special plastic scraper provided, whenever the thick-

the power supply or to remove the foodstuffs.
However, when the ice becomes very thick on the
inner liner, complete defrosting should be carried out

1. Remove any stored food, wrap it in several layers
of newspaper and put it in a cool place.
2. Turn the thermostat control
3. Leave the door open.
4. Remove the three large drawers.
5. When defrosting is completed, remove the water
that has collected in the small bottom drawer and
dry the interior thoroughly.
Turn the thermostat control to a medium setting and,
after letting the appliance run for at least two hours in
the «fast freeze» mode, replace the previously
removed food into the compartments.
A temperature rise of the frozen food packs
during defrosting may shorten their storage life.
Never use sharp metal tools to scrape off frost
from the evaporator as you could damage the
appliance beyond repair.
