Notify customer service.
The more refrigerant an appliance
contains, the larger the room must be.
Leaking refrigerant can form a flammable gas-air mixture in rooms which
are too small.
The room must be at least 1 m3 per 8 g
of refrigerant. The amount of refrigerant
in your appliance is indicated on the
rating plate inside the appliance.

Fixing
Installation
Installation location
Install the appliance in a dry, well
ventilated room. The installation location
should neither be exposed to direct
sunlight nor near a heat source, e.g.
a cooker, radiator, etc. If installation
next to a heat source is unavoidable,
use a suitable insulating plate or observe
the following minimum distances to
a heat source:
–
3 cm to an electric cooker.
–
30 cm to an oil or solid-fuel cooker.
The floor on which the appliance is to
be installed must be rigid. If required,
reinforce the floor. To ensure that the ice
maker functions correctly, the appliance
must be upright.
Observe ambient temperature
and ventilation
The atmosphere grade is written on the
identification plate. It states the room
temperature within which the appliance
can be operated.
Atmosphere
grade
Permitted ambient
temperature
SN
+10 °C to 32 °C
N
+16 °C to 32 °C
ST
+16 °C to 38 °C
T
+16 °C to 43 °C
Ventilation
Never cover the ventilation openings
in the base panel. The cooling motor
otherwise has to increase ist output,
and this increases the electricity
consumption.
For secure installation, the appliance
screwed to neighbouring kitchen
furniture and/or units.
It is very important therefore that all
bordering furniture and/or units are fixed
securely to the floor and/or walls.
If making structural changes fix the
appliance in place again corresponding
to the the installation instructions.
Installation surface
A load-bearing base is necessary
because of the heavy weight of the fully
laden appliance.
The weight of the appliance when fully
loaded:
–
45.7 cm appliance
250 kg
–
61.0 cm appliance
350 kg
–
76.2 cm appliance
425 kg
In case of doubt, consult an architect
or structural engineer.

Electrical
connection
Do not use an extension lead or a multiplug socket.
The plug to secure the appliance must
be freely accessible. Connect the
appliance to a 220–240 V/50 Hz ac
current via a plug which has been
properly installed. The socket must be
fused with a 10 A fuse or higher.
For appliances operated in nonEuropean countries, the identification plate should be checked
whether the electric supply and the
current model stated match the vales
of the mains supply. The rating plate
is situated in the bottom left-hand
side of the appliance. Any necessary
exchanging of the mains lead should
carried out by a specialist electrician.
m
Warning
Never connect the appliance to
electronic energy saver plugs or to
power inverters which convert the
direct current to 230 V alternating
current (e.g. solar equipment,
power supplies on ships).
After installing the appliance, wait at
least ½ hour until the appliance starts
up. During transportation the oil in the
compressor may have flowed into the
refrigeration system.
Before switching on the appliance for
the first time, clean the interior of the
appliance (see “Cleaning the appliance”,
page 16).
