Except for the bottom drawer, which serves for storage purposes, all
compartments and drawers are suited for freezing small quantities of
food. The two upper compartments are suited for freezing of large
quantities of food.
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18 °C or
colder before freezing food.
• Please observe the freezing capacity given on the rating plate. The
freezing capacity is the maximum quantity of fresh food that can be
frozen within a period of 24 hours. If you wish to freeze food several
days in a row, please observe a maximum capacity of only 2/3 to 3/4
of that on the rating plate.
• Allow warm food to cool down before freezing. The warmth will
cause increased ice formation and increase the power consumption.
• When freezing large quantities of food, place the frozen cold accu-
mulation block at the top of the cold food.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into
meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
1. When freezing maximum capacity press the FROSTMATIC button 24
hours prior to freezing, or 4 to 6 hours for smaller quantities. Yellow
indicator light illuminates.
The FROSTMATIC button need not be pressed for freezing of small
quantities of up to 3 kg.
2. 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.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
freeze to the food.
3. Place the packed food in the drawers. Unfrozen food must not touch
items already frozen, otherwise the frozen food could begin to defrost.
The appliance electronics automatically switch the FROSTMATIC func-
tion off after a period of 50 hours. Yellow indicator light goes out. You
can also stop the FROSTMATIC function manually by pressing the
FROSTMATIC button again.
