function turned on. The freezer drawers
ensure that it is quick and easy to find
the food package you want. If large
quantities of food are to be stored,

bottom drawer which needs to be in
place to provide good air circulation. On
all shelves it is possible to place food
that protrude until 15 mm from the door.
In the event of accidental
defrosting, for example due
to a power failure, if the
power has been off for
longer that the value shown
