Defrosting the freezer
Defrost the freezer when the frost layer rea-
ches a thickness of about 10-15 mm.
The best time to defrost the freezer when it
contains no or only a little food.
To remove the frost, do these steps:
1. Switch off the appliance.
• not open the lid frequently or leave it open
longer than absolutely necessary.
• Once defrosted, food deteriorates rapidly
and cannot be refrozen.
• Do not exceed the storage period indica-
ted by the food manufacturer.
2. Remove any stored food, wrap it in sev-
eral layers of newspaper and put it in a
cool place.
3. Leave the lid open , remove the plug from
the defrost water drain and collect all de-
frost water on a tray. Use a scraper to re-
move ice quickly.
