HOW TO DEFROST AND CLEAN THE FREEZER

Defrost the freezer compartment once or
twice a year, or when the ice on the walls
reaches a thickness of about 3 mm. If
possible, carry out defrosting when the
compartment is nearly empty.
Remove the food from the low temperature
compartment, wrap in a newspaper and group
together in a cool place or in a portable cooler.
Disconnect the appliance from the mains
power supply.
Leave the door open to allow the frost to melt.
Remove the defrost water from the
compartment bottom.
Clean the interior with a sponge dampened in
lukewarm water and neutral detergent.
Do not use abrasive products.
Rinse the interior and dry thoroughly.
Note: Do not use sharp or pointed metal
instruments to scrape off ice; do not heat the
freezer compartment artificially.

HOW TO CLEAN THE REFRIGERATOR COMPARTMENT

Periodically clean the inside of the
refrigerator compartment.
Defrosting of the refrigerator compartment is
completely automatic.
Droplets of water on the rear wall of the
refrigerator compartment indicate that the
periodic automatic defrost cycle is in progress.
The defrost water is automatically routed to a
drain outlet and into a container from which it
evaporates.
Clean the defrost water drain outlet regularly
using the tool supplied with the appliance in
order to ensure defrost water is removed
correctly.
Before carrying out any cleaning operations,
unplug the appliance.
Use a sponge dampened in lukewarm water
and/or neutral detergent.
Rinse the interior and dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use abrasive products.
