No longer store the frozen produce for the max. storage period. Refrigerator compartment m Caution If the refrigerator compartment has become too warm, cook warmed refrigerated food before consumption. If in doubt, do not use raw food. Usable capacity Information on the usable capacity can be found inside your appliance on the rating plate (see diagram at chapter “Customer service”). Fully utilising the freezer volume To place the maximum amount of food in the freezer, the top frozen food container can be taken out of the appliance. The food can then be placed directly on the shelves and stacked in the lower frozen food container. Freezer compartment Use the freezer compartment ■ To store deep-frozen food. ■ To make ice cubes. ■ To freeze food. Note Ensure that the freezer compartment door has been closed properly. If the door is open, the frozen food will thaw. The freezer compartment will become covered in thick ice. Also: waste of energy due to high power consumption! When the freezer compartment door is closed, a low pressure occurs, causing a sucking noise. Wait two to three minutes until the low pressure has adjusted itself. We recommend leaving the ice cube container in the appliance. This ensures optimum temperature distribution in the freezer compartment. Purchasing frozen food ■ Packaging must not be damaged. ■ Use by the “use by” date. ■ Temperature in the supermarket freezer must be -18 °C or lower. ■ If possible, transport deep-frozen food in an insulated bag and place quickly in the freezer compartment. Max. freezing capacity Information about the max. freezing capacity within 24 hours can be found on the rating plate (see diagram at chapter “Customer service”).
en 14 Freezing fresh food Freeze fresh and undamaged food only. To retain the best possible nutritional value, flavour and colour, vegetables should be blanched before freezing. Aubergines, peppers, zucchini and asparagus do not require blanching. Literature on freezing and blanching can be found in bookshops. Note Keep food which is to be frozen away from food which is already frozen. ■ The following foods are suitable for freezing: Cakes and pastries, fish and seafood, meat, game, poultry, vegetables, fruit, herbs, eggs without shells, dairy products such as cheese, butter and quark, ready meals and leftovers such as soups, stews, cooked meat and fish, potato dishes, soufflés and desserts. ■ The following foods are not suitable for freezing: Types of vegetables, which are usually consumed raw, such as lettuce or radishes, eggs in shells, grapes, whole apples, pears and peaches, hard- boiled eggs, yoghurt, soured milk, sour cream, crème fraîche and mayonnaise. Packing frozen food To prevent food from losing its flavour or drying out, place in airtight containers. 1. Place food in packaging. 2. Remove air. 3. Seal the wrapping. 4. Label packaging with contents and date of freezing. Suitable packaging: Cling wrap, tubular film made of polyethylene, aluminium foil, freezer containers. These products are available from specialist outlets. Unsuitable packaging: Wrapping paper, greaseproof paper, cellophane, bin liners and used shopping bags. Items suitable for sealing packaged food: Rubber bands, plastic clips, string, cold-resistant adhesive tape, etc. Bags and tubular film made of polyethylene (PE) can be sealed with a film heat sealer. Shelf life of frozen food Storage duration depends on the type of food. At a temperature of -18 °C: ■ Fish, sausage, ready meals and cakes and pastries: up to 6 months ■ Cheese, poultry and meat: up to 8 months ■ Vegetables and fruit: up to 12 months Super freezing Food should be frozen solid as quickly as possible in order to retain vitamins, nutritional value, appearance and flavour. Several hours before placing fresh food in the freezer compartment, switch on super freezing to prevent an unwanted temperature rise. As a rule, 4–6 hours is adequate. This appliance runs constantly and the freezer compartment drops to a very low temperature. If the max. freezing capacity is to be used, super freezing must be switched on for 24 hours before the fresh produce is placed in the freezer compartment. You can freeze smaller quantities of food (up to 2 kg) without fast freezing. Note When super freezing is switched on, increased operating noises may occur. Switching on super freezing 1. Keep pressing the “select” button until the freezer compartment climate zone is marked with an arrow. 2. Press “super” button. If “super freezing” is switched on, “SU” and “super” are indicated on the display panel. Switching off super freezing 1. Keep pressing the “select” button until the freezer compartment climate zone is marked with an arrow. 2. Press “super” button. If super freezing is switched off, the “SU” and “super” displays go out on the display panel. Note Super freezing automatically switches off after approx. 2^ days.
en 15 Thawing frozen food Depending on the type and application, select one of the following options: ■ at room temperature ■ in the refrigerator ■ in an electric oven, with/without fan assisted hot-air ■ in the microwave m Caution Do not refreeze thawing or thawed food. Only ready meals (boiled or fried) may be refrozen. No longer store the frozen produce for the max. storage period. Refrigerator compartment The refrigerator compartment is the ideal storage location for meat, sausage, fish, dairy products, eggs, ready meals and pastries. Storing food ■ Store fresh, undamaged food. The quality and freshness will then be retained for longer. ■ In the case of ready-made products and bottled goods, observe the best-before date or use-by date specified by the manufacturer. ■ To retain aroma, colour and freshness, pack or cover food well before placing in the appliance. This will prevent the transfer of flavours and the discolouration of plastic parts in the refrigerator compartment. ■ Allow warm food and drinks to cool down before placing in the appliance. Note Avoid contact between food and rear panel. Otherwise the air circulation will be impaired. Food or packaging could freeze to the rear panel. Note the chill zones in the refrigerator compartment The air circulation in the refrigerator compartment creates different chill zones: ■ Coldest zone is between the vegetable container and the glass shelf situated above. Note Store perishable food (e.g. fish, sausage, meat) in the coldest zone above the vegetable container. ■ Warmest zone is at the very top of the door. Note Store e.g. hard cheese and butter in the warmest zone. Cheese can then continue to release its flavour and the butter will still be easy to spread. “Cool-fresh” container Foods suitable for “cool-fresh” container: In principle all foods which are fresh and are to remain fresh for even longer, such as: fish, seafood, meat and sausage, dairy products, and ready meals. Foods not suitable for the “cool-fresh” drawer: Fruit and vegetables sensitive to cold (e.g.: tropical fruit such as pineapples, bananas, papaya, citrus fruits, melons as well as tomatoes, aubergines, zucchini, capsicums, cucumbers, potatoes). The ideal storage location for these foods is the refrigerator compartment. Vegetable container with humidity controller To create the optimum storage climate for fruit and vegetables, you can set the air humidity in the vegetable container depending on the quantity stored: ■ smaller quantities of fruit and vegetables – high air humidity ■ large quantities of fruit and vegetables – low air humidity
en 16 Notes ■ Fruit sensitive to cold (e.g. pineapple, banana, papaya and citrus fruit) and vegetables sensitive to cold (e.g. aubergines, cucumbers, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes and potatoes) should be stored outside the refrigerator at temperatures of approx. +8 °C to +12 °C for optimum preservation of quality and flavour. ■ Condensation may form in the vegetable container depending on the type and quantity of products stored. Remove condensation with a dry cloth and adjust air humidity in the vegetable container with the humidity controller. Super cooling Super cooling sets the refrigerator temperature to the coldest temperature setting for approx. 6 hours. Then the appliance automatically switches to the temperature set prior to super cooling mode. Switch on super cooling mode, e.g. ■ before placing large quantities of food in the refrigerator compartment. ■ for the fast cooling of drinks. Note When super cooling is switched on, increased operating noises may occur. Switching on super cooling 1. Keep pressing the “select” button until the refrigerator compartment climate zone is marked with an arrow. 2. Press “super” button. If “super cooling” is switched on, “SU” and “super” are indicated on the display panel. Switching off super cooling 1. Keep pressing the “select” button until the refrigerator compartment climate zone is marked with an arrow. 2. Press “super” button. If super cooling is switched off, the “SU” and “super” displays go out on the display panel. Ice and water dispenser The following can be dispensed as required: ■ cooled water, ■ crushed ice, ■ ice cubes. m Warning Never reach into the ice cube dispenser opening! Risk of injury! m Caution Do not place bottles or food in the cube container in order to cool them quickly. The ice maker may block and be damaged. * Not all models. Using the ice and water dispenser The ice and water dispenser only works when the appliance is connected to the water mains. When the appliance has been switched on, it takes approx. 24 hours until the first batch of ice cubes are ready. When the appliance has been connected, there are still air bubbles in the lines. Run off drinking water and pour away until water can be dispensed without bubbles. Pour away the first 5 glasses. When using the ice maker for the first time, do not use the first 30-40 ice cubes for reasons of hygiene. Operating the ice maker As soon as the freezer compartment has reached its freezing temperature, ice cube production starts. After 2–3 hours the ready ice cubes are automatically discharged into the ice cube container. Note The appliance produces more ice if you lower the freezer compartment temperature. This will slightly increase the energy consumption of your appliance. Occasionally ice cubes will freeze together and block the dispenser: 1. Open the door and check inside whether ice cubes are sticking to the ice and water dispenser. 2. If the ice and water dispenser is not blocked: m Caution A full ice cube container is heavy! ■ Carefully pull out ice cube container and remove ice cubes which are frozen together. When the ice cube container is full, ice making switches off automatically. When ice cubes are being made, the buzzing water valve, the water flowing into the ice cube tray and the falling ice cubes can be heard.
en 17 Observing drinking water quality All materials used in the drinks dispenser are odourless and tasteless. If the water has an aftertaste, this may be caused by: ■ Mineral and chlorine content of the drinking water. ■ Material of the domestic water line and connection line. ■ Freshness of the drinking water. If water has not been dispensed for a long time, the water may have a “stale” taste. In this case fill approx. 15 glasses of water and throw away. We recommend that you regularly dispense a little fresh water from the water maker and that you do not switch off the appliance. This will ensure that the best water quality is retained. The enclosed water filter will filter only particles out of the supply water, not bacteria or microbes. Dispensing ice/water ■ Select the ice and water dispenser button (water, crushed ice or ice cubes). ■ Keep pressing the button until the required quantity is in the glass. Dispensing water Note The water from the water dispenser is cooled to a palatable temperature. If you would like the water colder, place ice cubes in the glass before dispensing the water. Note When dispensing fairly large amounts of water, the dispensed water may become warmer. Dispensing ice Disconnecting the ice maker If ice cubes are not to be dispensed for longer than 1 week (e.g. holiday), temporarily disconnect the ice cube maker to prevent the ice cubes from freezing together. To disconnect the ice maker: 1. Remove the ice cube container. 2. Keep pressing the “options” button, until the [IWD off] function is marked with an arrow. 3. Activate by pressing the setting button + (function is framed). 4. Empty and clean ice cube container. Re-attach the ice cube container. Ensure that the ice cube container engages with the support. Switching on the ice cube maker again: 1. Keep pressing the “options” button, until the [IWD off] function is marked with an arrow. 2. Deactivate by pressing the setting button - (function is no longer framed). sec min lock sabbath IWD off time sec min lock sabbath IWD off time
en 18 Water filter m Warning Do not use the appliance in places where the water quality is risky or not sufficiently known about without suitable disinfection, before and after filtering. A filter cartridge for filtering particles can be obtained from customer service or a specialist dealer. m Caution ■ After installing a new filter, always discard the ice produced within the first 24 hours after switching on the ice maker. ■ If the ice has not been used for a prolonged period, pour all ice cubes out of the container and also discard the ice produced within the next 24 hours. ■ If the appliance or the ice has not been used actively for several weeks or months or if the ice cubes have an unpleasant taste or odor, change the water filter. ■ Air trapped in the system may cause water to escape and the filter cartridge to be ejected. Caution when removing. ■ The filter must be changed at least every 6 months. Important information concerning the water filter ■ After use, the water system is subject to low pressure. Be careful when removing the filter! ■ Rinse the water system through if the appliance has not been used for a long period, or if the water tastes or smells unpleasant. In addition to this, draw water from the water dispenser for several minutes. If the unpleasant taste or smell persists exchange the filter. Exchanging the filter cartridge After 6 months you are prompted via the [filter change] display message to change the filter cartridge (see chapter “Special functions”).
