2. Use of the freezer compartment
The freezer compartment is equipped with an upper drawer and a lower drawer. To remove them all, read the disassembly instructions on page 9.
Cleaning and care
For reasons of hygiene, the device (including external and internal accessories) should be cleaned at least every two months.
During cleaning, the device must not be connected to the socket. Electric shock hazard! Before cleaning, switch off the device and pull the plug out of the socket.
To keep your device looking good, you should clean it regularly.
- Spray water onto a cleaning cloth instead of spraying directly onto the surface of the device. This contributes to an even distribution of moisture on the surface.
- Clean the doors, handles, and cabinet surfaces with a mild detergent, then wipe dry with a soft cloth.
- Do not use sharp objects to clean as they are likely to scratch the surface.
- Do not use thinner, car wash, bleach, essential oils, abrasives, or organic solvents such as benzene for cleaning. They can damage the surface of the device and cause a fire.
You should clean the interior of the device regularly. It's easier to clean when food supplies are low. Wipe out the inside of the refrigerator with a weak solution of baking soda and water, then rinse with warm water and a wrung-out sponge or cloth. Wipe dry completely before replacing shelves and baskets. Thoroughly dry all surfaces and detachable parts before reassembling. Although this appliance defrosts automatically, a layer of frost may form on the inside walls of the freezer if the freezer door is opened frequently or left open too long. If the frost is too thick, choose a time when the freezer compartment is almost empty and do the following:
1. Remove existing food and accessory baskets, unplug unit and leave doors open. Ventilate the room thoroughly to speed up the process.
2. When defrost is complete, clean your freezer as above.
Do not use sharp objects to remove frost from the freezer compartment. Only when the interior is completely dry should the device be switched on again and connected to the socket again.
Cleaning the door seal
Be sure to keep the door seal clean. Sticky foods and drinks can cause the seal to stick to the cabinet and tear when the door is opened. Wash the seal with a mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry thoroughly after cleaning.
Only when the door seals are completely dry should the appliance be switched on RReplacing the LED light
