Dear customer, Before placing your new refrigerator/freezer into operation please read these operating instructions carefully. They contain important information for safe use, for installation and for care of the appliance. Please keep these operating instructions for future reference. Pass them on to possible new owners of the appliance. These operating instructions are for use with several technically comparable models with varying accessories.
Safety The safety aspects of our refrigerators/freezers comply with accepted technical standards and the German Appliance Safety Law. Nevertheless, we consider it our obligation to make you aware of the following safety information: Intended use • The freezer is intended for use in the home. It is suitable for the freezing and storing frozen food, as well as for making ice.

Disposal Appliance Packaging Information All materials are environmentally sound! They can be dumped 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.
You can remove any remnants of adhesive using white spirit. Remove all adhesive tape and packing pieces from the interior of the appliance. Installation Installation Location The appliance should be set up in a well ventilated, dry room. Energy use is affected by the ambient temperature. The appliance should therefore –...
Your freezer needs air Your freezer is designed for maintenance-free operation. What it should never lack is good ventilation. Air is supplied under the ventila- tion slot between the freezer and storage surface. Air is extracted through the upper ventilation grille. Never obstruct these openings. Electrical Connection Any electrical work required to install this appliance should be carried out by a qualified electrician or competent person.
Warning! A cut-off plug inserted into a 13 amp socket is a serious safety (shock) hazard. Ensure that the cut-off plug is disposed of safely. Plug socket The plug socket necessary for connection of your appliance to the elec- tricity supply should be positioned so that it is possible to pull out the appliance plug.
Unscrew the handle. Refit it on the opposite side after having pierced the plugs with a punch. Cover the holes left open with the plugs contained in the documentation pack. AEG75 Prior to Initial Start–Up Please clean the appliance interior and all accessories prior to initial start-up (see section: “Cleaning and Care”).

Important note: if you operate the fast-freeze switch or adjust the temperature regulator, it may happen that your appliance’s refrigerati- on motor does not start immediately but only after some time. This does not mean that your appliance has a fault.

Ice pack There is an ice pack in one drawer of the freezer. Refer to the section “Prior to Initial Start–Up” concerning freezing of the ice pack. In the event of a power failure or malfunction, the ice pack will lengt- hen the amount of time it takes for the frozen food to become too warm by several hours.
To utilise the maximum rated freezing capacity, switch on the fast free- ze switch 24 hours before freezing is due to start (the amber light illu- minates). For smaller amounts the fast freeze switch should be swit- ched on 4 - 6 hours in advance. 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.
Storage Goods Symbols/Freezing Calendar • The symbols on the drawers show different types of frozen goods. • The numbers indicate storage times in months for the appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether the upper or lower value of the indi cated storage time is valid depends on the quality of the foods and pre-treating before freezing.
Each temperature rise reduces the keeping qualities of your frozen food. Around 12 hours before defrosting your freezer, switch over to fast freeze to built up a low temperature reserve in the frozen food. Warning! • Do not use electrical heating appliances or any other mechanical or artificial devices to speed up the defrosting process.
Attention! • Ethereal oils and organic solvents can attack plastic parts, e.g. – lemon juice or the juice from orange peals; – butyric acid; – cleansers which contain acetic acid. Do not allow such substances to come into contact with appliance parts.
If you should ever move house If the freezer compartment is not fully loaded, pack the frozen food all together on as few storage levels as possible: drawers (1) and (2). 24 hours before the removal lorry is due to leave switch over to fast- freezing in order to build up a reserve of coldness in the frozen items.
A malfunction may be caused by only a minor fault that you can rec- tify yourself using the following instructions. Please check whether the pilot lamps come on, the refrigerating unit operates, and the internal temperature is being maintained. Do not perform any other work on the appliance if the following infor- mation does not provide assistance in your specific case.
