Do not store lettuce, eggs, apples, pears, grapes, peaches, yoghurt, buttermilk, sour cream or mayonnaise in the freezer.

Avoid contamination of food

To avoid contamination of food, please respect the following instructions:

  • Opening the door for long periods can cause a significant increase of the temperature in the compartments of the appliance.

  • Regularly clean surfaces that can come in contact with food and accessible drainage systems.

  • Clean water tanks if they have not been used for 48 h; flush the water system connected to a water supply if water has not been drawn for 5 days.

  • Store raw meat and fish in suitable containers in the refrigerator, so that it is not in contact with or drip onto other food.

  • If the refrigerating appliance is left empty for long periods, switch off, defrost, clean, dry, and leave the door open to prevent mould developing within the appliance.

Freezing and storing foods in the freezer

Important recommendations for freezing fresh food

  • The maximum quantity of food that you can put in the freezer in one go is stated on the type plate. Putting more than this maximum quantity of food into the freezer will slow the freezing process and reduce the quality. Moreover, this will also harm the quality of frozen food already stored in the freezer.

  • Use only good-quality fresh food that is suitable for freezing.

  • Allow hot food to cool to room temperature.

  • Food needs to be frozen quickly. It is recommended that you use small packs.

  • Use air and watertight packaging to prevent the food from drying out and lose its vitamins.

  • Note the type and quantity of the food on the packaging, together with the date on which it was frozen.

  • Do not allow fresh food to come into contact with frozen food.

Important recommendations for storing frozen food

  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the storage and use of frozen food. Take note of the recommended storage temperature and use-by date stated on the packaging.

  • Use only food in undamaged packaging that has been stored at a temperature of -18 °C or lower.

  • Do not buy food covered in frost. This indicates that the food has thawed or partially thawed several times and, as a result, is of inferior quality.

  • Make sure that the food does not thaw during transport. An increase in its temperature will shorten the storage life and harm the quality of the food.

Thawing frozen food

  • Thawing is an important step in storing food preserved by freezing. Food must be thawed in the correct way.

  • Suitable methods of thawing food are:

    • in the refrigerator;

    • in cold water;

    • in a microwave or conventional oven with a suitable thaw program.

  • Some frozen products can be prepared without needing to thaw them first. The manufacturer will state this on the packaging.

  • The food needs to be packed in small portions. In this way the food thaws faster.

  • Use partially or completely thawed food as quickly as possible. The bacteria in thawed food are reactivated and the food will spoil rapidly. This applies in particular to fruit, vegetables and ready-made food.

  • Do not refreeze partially or completely thawed food.


Cleaning outside

Door handles and trim

Clean with a cloth dampened with soapy water. Dry with a soft cloth.

Keep the outside clean. Wipe with a clean cloth lightly dampened with mild liquid dish detergent. Dry with a clean, soft cloth.

Do not wipe the wine reserve with a soiled dish cloth or wet towel. These may leave a residue that can damage the finish. Do not use scouring pads, powdered cleaners, bleach or cleaners containing bleach because these products can scratch and damage the finish.

Stainless steel

Regularly clean and polish the Stainless Steel Door Panels and Handles (on some models) with a commercially available stainless steel cleaner to preserve and protect the fine finish.

Do not use appliance wax or polish on the stainless steel.


Clean the wood with a dampened rag. Do not allow the wood to become overly wet.

Custom Wood Panels

Please contact your custom panel supplier for direction on cleaning and care.

Cleaning inside

Turn off power at the circuit breaker or fuse box before cleaning. If this is not practical, wring excess moisture out of sponge or cloth when cleaning around switches, lights or controls.

Use warm water and baking soda solution— about a tablespoon (15 ml) of baking soda to a quart (1 liter) of water. This both cleans and neutralizes odors. Thoroughly rinse and wipe dry.

Wooden Racks

Clean the wooden racks with a dampened rag. Do not allow the racks to become overly wet.

Other parts of the wine reserve

Including door gaskets, ice storage bins and all plastic parts - can be cleaned the same way. After cleaning the door gaskets, apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to the door gaskets at the hinge side. This helps keep the gaskets from sticking and bending out of shape. Do not wash any plastic parts in the dishwasher.

Preparing for vacation

For long vacations or absences, remove food from the wine reserve. Adjust the temperature up (+) until the unit turns off . Clean the interior with a baking soda solution of one tablespoon (15 ml) of baking soda to one quart (1 liter) of water. Leave the door open.

For shorter vacations, remove perishable foods and leave the control at the regular setting. However, if the room temperature is expected to drop below 16°C, follow the same instructions as for extended vacations.

Turn off the icemaker and shut off the water supply to the freezer.

Interior light replacement

Do not try to replace a burned-out LED light. An authorized technician will need to replace the LED lights.
