Installation location
The appliance should be placed in a
dry room that can be ventilated. The
installation location should not be
directly exposed to the sun and should
not be near a heat source such as a
stove or radiator. If installation next to a
heat source is unavoidable, use a
suitable insulating plate or maintain the
following minimum distances from the
heat source:
n
3cm from an electric or gas
cooker,
n
30cm from oil or solid fuel cookers.
If the appliance is being installed next
to another refrigerator or freezer,
maintain a minimum distance between
the sides of the two appliances of
25mm. This prevents the formation of
condensation.
If there is a cover or cupboard above
the appliance, there must be a gap of
10mm to enable the appliance to be
pulled out if necessary.
Installation notes
The heated air must be able to escape
unimpeded from the rear of the
appliance.
Transport and installation
If the appliance is being installed in the
corner of a room or in a niche, the
minimum required gaps (see section
"Device and installation dimensions")
at the sides of the appliance must be
observed so that the doors can be
opened all the way.
This appliance is heavy and must be
secured during transport and fitting.
!
Warning!
This appliance is very heavy. If the
appliance falls over during transport
and installation work, it can cause
serious injuries. At least two people are
required to install the appliance safely.
Keep the doors of the appliance shut
until the appliance is positioned and
level at its installation location.
3. Do not remove the shelves and
containers. Leaving them intact
makes it more difficult for children
to climb in!
4. Never let children play with a worn
out appliance.
Risk of asphyxiation!
Refrigerators contain refrigerants and
the insulation contains gases.
Refrigerants and gases must be
disposed of properly. Do not damage
refrigerant tubing until such time when
it can be disposed of properly.
4Downloaded from Fridge-Manual.com Manuals
If adjacent kitchen units are deeper
than 75 cm, the minimum required
gaps at the side must be observed in
order to enable the entire door opening
angle to be used (see section "Door
opening angle").

removed in order for the appliance
to fit through the doors of the
house or flat, the doors must be
removed by customer services only.
Ventilation
The air from the base panel at the front
and cover plate at the rear heats up.
The heated air must be able to escape
unimpeded. Otherwise, the
refrigerating unit has to work harder,
which increases the appliance’s power
consumption. You must therefore
never cover or block the ventilation
openings.
The appliance must be installed
and connected up by a specialist in
accordance with these assembly
instructions.
If the water pressure is more than
8.2bar, a pressure reducing valve
must be integrated. If the water

Unit of temperature
When arranging the food,
bear in mind the following:
When purchasing food,
bear in mind the following:
n
Allow warm food and beverages to
cool down outside of the appliance.
n
When the device is switched on, the
appliance initially displays the
temperature in degrees Celsius(°C).
Pack food so that it is airtight to
prevent it from losing its flavour or
drying out.
n
To set the unit of temperature:
Press the "alarm/lock" key for
2seconds.
Do not block air outlets with food.
Doing so impedes the air
circulation.
The freshness of food at the time of
purchase is important when
determining how long it may be kept.
In principle, the following applies: The
fresher the produce when it is placed
into the hydroFresh drawers, the
longer it will keep. When purchasing
food, always pay attention to how
fresh it is.
n
Do not allow oil or fat to come into
contact with plastic parts or with
the door seals.
Removing the hydroFresh
drawers
The temperature can be displayed in
degrees Celsius (°C) or in degrees
Fahrenheit (°F).
The "childproof lock" symbol appears.
1. Pull the hydroFresh drawer out as
far as possible.
hydroFresh drawers
Hold down the "quick ice" key for
15seconds until the unit of

Fridge compartment
The temperature of the fridge
compartment can be adjusted
between +2 °C and +8 °C.
We recommend that you set it to
+4°C.
Perishable foods should not be stored
at temperatures of more than +4°C.
Use of fridge
Use the fridge to store prepared
dishes, bakery products, canned
goods, condensed milk, cheese,
spreads, sauces, dips, and eggs.
2. Lift the front of the hydroFresh
drawer and remove it.
The temperature in the hydroFresh
drawers is kept at around 0°C. This
low temperature provides optimum
storage conditions for perishable
goods.
Foods can be kept in the hydroFresh
drawers for a much longer period of
time before spoiling than they can if
stored in the normal fridge
compartment.
The hydroFresh drawers are covered
by a special moisture filter. This special
filter optimises the air humidity in the
hydroFresh drawers. As a result, the air
humidity in the hydroFresh drawers is
up to 90% relative humidity depending
on how full they are. This storage
atmosphere provides optimum
conditions for fresh produce such as
vegetables, salad, herbs, and fruit.
Suitable for fresh cooling:
As a general rule, all fresh food that
needs to stay fresh as long as possible
is suitable. This includes meats and
sausages, fresh fish, seafood, milk,
butter, soft cheese, crème fraîche,
vegetables, and fruit.
Not suitable for fresh
cooling:
Fruit and vegetables that are sensitive
to the cold, such as tropical fruits,
avocado, papaya, passion fruit,
aubergine, cucumber, and peppers.
Also, fruit that needs to ripen, green
tomatoes, and potatoes should not be
kept here.

Notes on the freezer
compartment
n
n
n
Make sure that the freezer
compartment drawer is always
closed. If the drawer is open, the
frozen food thaws out. The freezer
ices up heavily. In addition, energy
is wasted due to the high power
consumption of the appliance.
When you close the freezer
compartment drawer, there is
negative pressure in the freezer
compartment.
If the freezer compartment drawer
cannot be opened again soon after
being closed, please wait for the
negative pressure to disperse.
Use the freezer
compartment for the
following:
n
Storing deep frozen food.
n
Freezing food.
n
Storing ice cubes.
Freezing foods
Only freeze fresh food in good condition.
Do not allow food to be frozen right next
to food that has already been frozen.
Make sure that foods are packed in
airtight packaging so that they do not
lose their taste or dry out.
To pack the food
correctly:
Buying and storing
deep−frozen foods
Pay attention when purchasing deep
frozen food:
n
Make sure that the packaging is not
damaged.
n
Check the best before date.
n
The temperature of the
supermarket freezer must be below
−18°C. Otherwise, the storage life
of deep−frozen foods is reduced.
n
Buy deep frozen foods last.
Transport frozen food home in a
cold bag or wrapped in newspaper.
n
At home put deep frozen food into
the freezer compartment
immediately. Use up deep frozen
food before the best before date.
1. Put the food into the packaging.
2. Squeeze out air completely.
3. Close packaging tightly.
4. Label packaging with its content
and date of freezing.
The following are unsuitable
for use as packaging:
Wrapping paper, parchment paper,
cellophane, refuse bags and used
shopping bags.
The following are suitable as
packaging:
Plastic films, tubular polyethylene films,
aluminium foil, and freezer bags.
You can buy these products from your
specialist dealer.
For sealing, the following are
suitable:
Rubber bands, plastic clips, string,
cold−resistant adhesive tape or similar.
You can use a heat sealer to seal bags
and tubular polyethylene films.
Thawing out frozen
food
Depending upon type of food and the
intended use, a choice can be made
between the following:
n
at ambient temperature,
n
in the fridge,
n
in an electric oven, with/without hot
air convection,
n
in the microwave.
Storage life of frozen food
Caution!
The storage life of food depends on
the foot type. The following guidelines
apply to a temperature of −18°C:
Do not refreeze slightly or fully thawed
frozen food. Such food can only be
frozen again after being prepared
(boiled or roasted).
n
Fish, sausage, prepared dishes,
bakery products:
Up to 6 months
n
Cheese, poultry, meat:
Up to 8 months

dispenser opening.
Note the following when
placing the appliance into
operation
The ice and water dispenser only
works if the appliance is connected to
the water supply.
After placing the appliance into
operation, you must wait around
24hours before the first lot of ice
cubes is ready.
Bottom frozen food
drawer
The frozen food drawer can be
removed.
Removing the bottom frozen food
drawer:
Lift the freezer drawer upwards.
The ice maker can produce up to 100
ice cubes in 24 hours assuming that
ice cubes are removed several times a
day. The quantity produced depends
on the room temperature and the
appliance’s temperature setting.
When ice is being produced, you can
hear the water valve, the sound of the
water flowing into the ice bowl, and
the sound of the ice cubes falling
down once they have been produced.
Information!
Do not put bottles or food for fast
cooling into the ice cube container.
The ice maker can become blocked
and damaged.
Pay attention to the
quality of the drinking
water
Caution!
The supplied water filter only filters out
particles from the supplied water, and
does not filter out bacteria or
microbes.
All materials used in the water
dispenser are odourless and tasteless.
If the water has an aftertaste, it may be
for the following reasons:
After the connections are made, air
bubbles are still in the lines.
Draw and discard drinking water until
the water can be drawn without
bubbles. Throw away the first five
glasses of water.
n
Mineral and chlorine content of the
drinking water,
n
When using the ice maker for the first
time, throw away the first 30 to 40 ice
cubes for hygiene reasons.
Material of household piping or
connection line,
n
Freshness of drinking water. If no
water is drawn for a long time, the
water can taste somewhat stale. If
this happens, draw and discard
around 15 glasses of water.
Notes on using the
appliance
When the freezer compartment has
reached its freezing temperature, water
flows into the ice maker and freezes to
form ice cubes. The finished ice cubes
are automatically discharged into the
ice cube container.
The taste and smell of the water can
be improved by the installation of the
supplied water filter in the water inlet.
Occasionally, the ice cubes stick
together. During transport to the
opening where they are discharged,
they usually separate automatically.
Once the ice cube container is full, the
ice maker switches off automatically.
