Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure they are
offered for recycling.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation!
Disposal of your old appliance
Old appliances contain materials which
can be reclaimed or recycled. Please
contact your dealer, your waste collection centre or scrap merchant about
potential recycling schemes.
Make sure that the pipework is not
damaged whilst moving an old appliance. This is to ensure that the refrigerant and oil in the compressor cannot
leak into the environment. It is important
that they are disposed of in a safe
manner by authorised persons only.
Ensure that the appliance presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
See the appropriate section in the
Warning and safety instructions.

Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
This appliance complies with all relevant legal safety requirements. Inappropriate use can however lead to
personal injury and damage to property.
Read the operating instructions
carefully before starting to use this
appliance. They contain important
notes on installation, safety, operation and care of the appliance. This
way you will avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the appliance.
Keep these operating instructions in
a safe place and pass them on to
any future user.
Correct use
This appliance is intended for domestic use only for the cool storage of food and drink as well as for
storing deep frozen food, freezing fresh
food and for preparing ice. Any other
usage is not supported by the manufacturer and could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
damage caused by improper use of the
appliance.
This appliance contains the coolant
Isobutane (R600a), a natural gas
which is very environment friendly. Although it is flammable, it does not damage the ozone layer and does not increase the green house effect. The use
of this environment friendly coolant has,
however, led to a slight increase in the
noise level of the appliance. In addition
to the noise of the compressor, you
might be able to hear the coolant flowing around the system. This is unavoidable, but does not have any adverse effect on the performance of the appliance.
Care must be taken during transportation and setting up of the appliance that
no parts of the coolant system are damaged. Leaking coolant can damage the
eyes.
In the event of any damage:
- avoid open fires
and anything which creates a spark,
- disconnect from the mains,
- air the room in which the appliance is
located for several minutes and
- contact the Service Department
for advice.
The more refrigerant there is in an
appliance, the larger the room it
should be installed in. In the event of a
leakage, if the appliance is in a small
room, there is the danger of combustible gases building up.
For every 8 g of coolant at least 1 m3
room space is required. The amount of
coolant in the appliance is stated on the
data plate inside the appliance.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply make sure that
the rating on the data plate corresponds to the voltage and frequency of
the household supply. This data must
correspond in order to avoid risk of
damage to the appliance. Consult a
qualified electrician if in doubt.
The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed when
continuity is complete between the appliance and an effective earthing system, which complies with local and national safety regulations. It is most important that this basic safety requirement is tested regularly and where
there is any doubt the household wiring
system should be inspected by a qualified electrician. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for the consequences
of an inadequate earthing system (e.g.
electric shock).
Safe operation of the appliance is
only assured if it has been installed
and connected in accordance with
these operating and installation instructions.
This equipment is not designed for
maritime use or for use in mobile
installations such as caravans, aircraft
etc. However it may be suitable for
such usage subject to a risk assessment of the installation being carried
out by a suitably qualified engineer.
8
Installation work, maintenance and
repairs may only be carried out by
suitably qualified and competent persons to ensure safety.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous and the
manufacturer will not be held liable.
Ensure that current is not supplied
to the appliance while maintenance
or repair work is being carried out.
The appliance is only completely
isolated from the electricity supply
when:
– the plug has been withdrawn. Do not
pull on the cable, only on the plug.
– the mains fuse is withdrawn, or
– the screw-out fuse is removed in
countries where this is applicable.
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead.
Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g.
danger of overheating).
Operation
Never handle frozen food with wet
hands. Your hands may freeze to
the frozen food. Danger of frost burn.
Do not take ice cubes out with your
bare hands and never place ice
cubes or ice lollies in your mouth
straight from the freezer.
The very low temperature of the frozen
ice or lollies can cause frost burn to the
lips and tongue.
Warning and Safety instructions
Do not refreeze thawed or partially
thawed food. Defrosted food
should be used up as quickly as possible as food soon loses its nutritional
value and goes off. Defrosted food may
only be re-frozen after it has been
cooked.
Do not store explosive materials in
the appliance or any products containing propellants (e.g. spray cans).
Switching on thermostats may produce
sparks which could present a fire hazard.
If storing alcohol with a high percentage proof, make sure it is
tightly closed and stored upright.
Danger of explosion.
Do not store cans or bottles containing carbonated drinks or liquids
which could freeze in the freezer. The
cans or bottles could explode.
Danger of injury and damage to the appliance.
When cooling drinks quickly in the
freezer make sure bottles are not
left in for more than one hour, otherwise
they could burst. Danger of injury and
damage to the appliance.
Observe the "use by" dates given
on food to avoid the risk of food
poisoning.
Storage times will depend on several
factors including the freshness and
quality of the food as well as the temperature at which it is stored. Follow the
instructions given on food manufacturer’s packaging on storage conditions
required as well as the "use by" date.
Do not use sharp edged objects to
– remove frost and ice,
– separate frozen foods and remove
ice trays.
They will damage the evaporator causing irreversible damage to the appliance.
Never place electric heaters or
candles in the appliance to defrost
it. These can damage the plastic parts.
Do not use defrosting sprays, or
de-icers as they could contain substances which could damage the plastic parts and which may cause the build
up of gases and pose a danger to
health.
Do not use any oils or grease on
the door seals as these will cause
the seals to deteriorate and become
porous with time.
Do not store cooking oil in the appliance door. Traces of oil can
cause stress cracks to occur in the
plastic components in the door.
Do not block the ventilation gaps in
the appliance as this would impair
the efficiency of the appliance, increase
the electricity consumption and could
cause damage to the appliance.

Warning and Safety instructions
The appliance is designed for a
use within certain climate ranges
(ambient temperatures). It must not be
used in ranges for which it is not designed. The climate range for your appliance is stated on the data plate inside the appliance.
Installing it in a room with too low an
ambient temperature will lead to the appliance switching off for longer periods
so that it cannot maintain the required
temperature.
Never use a steam-cleaning appliance to defrost or clean this appliance. Pressurised steam could reach
the electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation
by cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the appliance and its surrounding in a clean
condition at all times. Any damage
which may caused by cockroaches or
vermin will not be covered by the appliance guarantee.
10
Disposal of your old appliance
Before disposing of an old appliance first make the door latch or

accidentally locking themselves in and
endangering their lives.
Before disposing of an old appliance, unplug it and render the plug
useless. Cut off the cable directly behind the appliance and at the plug to
prevent misuse.
Be careful not to damage any part
of the pipework whilst awaiting disposal, e.g. by
– puncturing the refrigerant channels
in the evaporator.
– bending any pipework.
– scratching the surface coating.
Splashes of refrigerant can damage the
eyes.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.

If, during a long absence, the appliance is switched off but not cleaned
out and the doors are left shut there
is a danger of mould and odours
building up inside the
appliance.
The correct temperature
It is very important to set the correct
temperature for storing food in the appliance. Micro organisms will cause
food which is not stored at the correct
temperature to deteriorate rapidly. Temperature influences the growth rate of
these micro organisms. Reducing the
temperature reduces their growth rate.
. . . in the freezer
– if too much food is stored in it at
once,
For freezing fresh food and storing
frozen food for a long time a temperature of at least -18 °C is needed. At this
temperature the growth of micro organisms is generally halted. As soon as the
temperature rises to above -10 °C, the
micro organisms become active in the
food again so that it cannot be kept as
long. For this reason, partially defrosted
or defrosted food must not be re-frozen.
Food may be re-frozen once it has
been cooked as the high temperatures
achieved when cooking destroy most
micro organisms.
– the warmer the food is which is being
put into it,
Temperature selection
The temperature in the appliance will
rise:
– the more often the door is opened
and the longer it is kept open,
– the higher the ambient temperature
surrounding the appliance.
The appliance is designed for use in
specific ambient temperatures (climate ranges). Do not use in ambient
temperatures for which it is not designed.
The temperatures for the refrigerator
section and for the freezer section are
set independently from one another using the buttons to the right and left
hand sides of the temperature displays.
Press the
. . . in the refrigerator
We recommend a temperature of 5 °C
in middle of the refrigerator section.
Upper button: to raise the temperature
(it gets warmer)
Lower button: to reduce the temperature (it gets colder)
The temperature being set will flash in
the display.
13
The correct temperature
When pressing the buttons the following are shown in the display:
– When first pressed: The last
temperature selected flashes.
– Each subsequent press of the button:
adjusts the temperature shown in
1 °C steps.
– Keeping the button pressed in: adjusts the temperature continually.
Approx. 5 seconds after letting go of
the button the current actual temperature of the refrigerator or freezer is automatically shown.
If you have adjusted the temperature,
wait for approx. 6 hours if the appliance is not very full and for approx.
24 hours if the appliance is full before
checking the temperature display as it
will take this long for the display to
show the accurate temperature of the
appliance. If, after this time, the temperature is too high or too low, you will
need to adjust it again.
Temperature range
The temperature can be adjusted:
– in the refrigerator section from 2 °C
to 11 °C
– in the freezer section from -16 °C to
-26 °C
The ambient temperature in the room
and the installation location can affect
the time it takes for the appliance to
reach the lowest temperture. If the ambient temperature is too high, the appliance may not reach the lowest temperature.
Temperature displays
During normal operation the temperature display shows the temperature in
the middle of the refrigerator section
and the temperature in the warmest
part of the freezer section.
If the temperature in the appliance is
not within the range that the appliance
is able to display (i.e. if it is not between
0 °C and 19 °C in the refrigerator section, and if the temperature in the
freezer section is above 0 °C), only a
bar will light up in the temperature displays.
It will take between 3 and 8 hours approximately for the appliance to reach
the required temperature. The time it
takes will depend on where the appliance is located and the temperature
setting selected.
14
The correct temperature
The temperature displays flash, if
Temperature display brightness
– a different temperature is being set,
The appliance is supplied with the
brightness of the temperature display
set as low as possible. However, if the
door is opened, a setting changed or if
the alarm is sounding, the temperature
display will appear much brighter for
approx. 1 minute.
– the temperature in the appliance has
risen by several degrees, indicating
that the appliance is warming up too
much.
This loss of coldness is no cause for
concern in the following circumstances:
– when the door has been left open for
a while, e.g. for removing or storing a
large amount of food,
– when fresh food is being frozen.
However, if the temperature remains
above -18 °C for a long time, check that
the frozen food has not started to defrost. Do not refreeze thawed or defrosted food! If it has started thawing,
check that the food is safe to use and if
it is, use it as soon as possible.
The level of brightness can be adjusted
to be:
– Brighter: by pressing the alarm button, and whilst holding it in, press the
upper button next to the temperature
display for the freezer section.
– Dimmer: by pressing the alarm button, and whilst holding it in, press the
lower button next to the temperature
display for the freezer section.

Alarm
Your appliance has been fitted with a
warning system which ensures that the
temperature in the freezer section cannot rise unnoticed. It is always active. If
the temperature in the freezer gets too
warm an alarm will sound and the temperature display for the freezer section
will flash. The temperature the appliance is set at determines the temperature the appliance recognises as being
too warm.
Switching the alarm tone off
early
Once the set temperature has been
reached in the freezer section, the
alarm tone stops and the temperature is
displayed constantly. However, if the
noise disturbs you, you can turn the
alarm tone off before this if you wish.
The alarm will sound and the temperature display will flash:
– when the freezer is switched on.
– when the freezer section door has
been left open for a while, e.g. in order to load, to re-arrange or to take
food out.
– when freezing large amounts of food.
– when there has been a lengthy interruption to the power supply.
16
^ Press the alarm button. The alarm
stops. The temperature display continues to flash until the set temperature has been reached. It then lights
up constantly. It does not go out until
the set temperature range has been
reached.
Super cool and Super freeze
Super cool
Freezing fresh food
The super cool function can be used to
rapidly reduce the temperature in the
refrigerator section to its lowest setting
(depending on the room temperature).
Fresh food should be frozen as quickly
as possible. This way the nutritional
value of the food, its vitamin content,
appearance and taste are not impaired.
Switching on super cool
Super cool is particularly recommended for faster chilling of large
amounts of fresh food or drink.
^ Press the super cool button, the
super cool indicator light will come
on.
The appliance works at full power to
lower the temperature in the refrigerator section.
Food which takes a long time to freeze
will lose more water from its cells which
then shrink.
During the defrosting process only
some of this water is reabsorbed by the
cells. The rest collects around the food.
In practice this means that the food
loses a large degree of its moisture.
If food is frozen quickly the cells have
less time to lose moisture so they shrink
less. As there is not so much moisture,
it is easier for the food to reabsorb it
during the defrosting process. There
will be very little water around the defrosted food.
Super freeze is not necessary:
– when putting in frozen food.
Switching off super cool
The super cool function switches itself
off automatically after approx. 6 hours.
The indicator light goes out and the appliance continues running at normal
power.
– when freezing up to 2 kg fresh food
daily.
To save energy the super cool function
can be switched off once food and
drinks are sufficiently chilled.
^ Press the super cool button. The
super cool indicator light will go out.
The appliance continues running at
normal power.
17
Super cool and Super freeze
Switching on super freeze
Switching super freeze off
Switch the super freeze function on before putting fresh food into the freezer.
Depending on the amount of food
placed in the freezer the super freeze
function will switch off automatically after approx. 30 to 60 hours. The super
freeze indicator light will go out and the
appliance will continue running at normal power.
When freezing small quantities of food
in the freezer, the super freeze function
should be switched on 4 - 6 hours beforehand. When freezing the maximum load of food the super freeze
function should be switched on 24
hours beforehand.
^ Press the super freeze button. The
super freeze indicator light will come
on.
The freezer section works at full
power to lower the temperature in the
freezer section.

Using the refrigerator section efficiently
Different storage zones
Natural air circulation gives rise to different temperature zones inside the refrigerator section. Cold, heavy air sinks
to the lowest section of the appliance.
Make use of the different zones when
placing food in the appliance.
Coldest zone
The coldest zone in the refrigerator section is directly above the vegetable
containers.
Use this for all delicate and highly perishable food, e.g.
– fish, meat, poultry,
– sausage products, ready meals,
– dishes or baked goods containing
eggs or cream
– fresh dough, cake mixtures, pizza or
quiche dough,
– soft cheese and other dairy products,
– pre-packed vegetables and other
fresh food with a label stating it
should be kept at a minimum temperature of 4 °C.
Warmest zone
The warmest zone is in the top section
of the refrigerator door. Use this for storing butter and cheese.
Do not store explosive materials in
the appliance or any products containing combustible gas (e.g. spray
cans). Danger of explosion.
If storing alcohol with a high percentage proof, make sure it is tightly
closed, and store upright.
Do not store cooking oil in the refrigerator door.
Traces of oil can cause stress
cracks to occur in the plastic components in the door.
Food must not touch the back wall of
the appliance. Otherwise it may
freeze to the back wall.
Food which should not be
stored in a refrigerator
Not all food is suitable for refrigeration.
These include:
– Fruit and vegetables which are sensitive to cold, such as bananas, avocado pears, papaya, passion fruit,
aubergines, peppers, tomatoes and
cucumbers
– Fruit which is not yet ripe
– Potatoes
– Some hard cheeses
19
Using the refrigerator section efficiently
Storing food correctly
Energy saving tips
Store food covered or packaged. This
will prevent food smells or tastes from
affecting other foods and prevent food
from drying out. The growth of bacteria,
such as salmonella, can be avoided by
setting the correct temperature and
maintaining good standards of hygiene.
– Frequently opening the door or keeping it open for too long will cause the
temperature in the appliance to rise.
The appliance will have to run more
often in order to maintain the cool
temperature inside the appliance.
Only open the door when you need
to and then only for as long as necessary.
Fruit and vegetables
Fruit and vegetables can be stored
loose in the vegetable containers. However, you should bear in mind that
some types of vegetables give off a
natural gas which speeds up the rate at
which food perishes. Some fruit and
vegetables react stongly to this gas
and should not be stored together in
the vegetable containers.
Examples of fruit which produce a
large amount of this natural gas are:
Apples, apricots, pears, nectarines,
peaches, plums, avocado pears and
figs.
Examples of fruit and vegetables
which react strongly to the natural
gases given off by other types of fruit
and vegetables are:
Kiwis, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels
sprouts, mangos, honeydew melons,
apples, apricots, cucumbers, tomatoes,
pears, nectarines and peaches.
20
– If you organise where you store your
food correctly you should be able to
find things quickly and easily without
allowing the temperature in the appliance to rise. Sort the food out carefully before putting it into the appliance.
– Hot food and drinks must be cooled
to room temperature before placing
them in the appliance.
– Do not store groceries too close to
each other. Space should be left between individual items for air to circulate.
Adjusting the interior fittings
Moving the shelves
Adjusting door shelves
The shelves can be adjusted according
to the height of the food.
^ Push the door shelf upwards then remove it by pulling it forwards.
^ Pull the shelves forward as far as
they will go then lift them upwards to
remove them.
^ Replace the door shelf at the required position. Ensure that it is securely pushed back into position.
^ With the rear barrier facing upwards
place the shelf at the required position.
The rear barrier must face upwards to
prevent food from touching the back
of the appliance and freezing to it.
Split shelf
Moving the bottle divider
(depending on model)
The bottle divider can be moved to the
left or right to ensure that bottles are
held securely in position when the door
is opened and shut.
(depending on model)
In order to accommodate tall items in
the appliance one of the shelves is divided. The front section can be taken
out to allow space for tall items standing on the shelf below.
21
Freezing and storing food
Maximum freezing capacity
Home freezing
To ensure that fresh food placed in the
freezer freezes through to the core as
quickly as possible, the maximum
freezing capacity must not be exceeded. The maximum freezing capacity for freezing within a 24 hour period is
given on the data plate "Freezing capacity ....kg/24 hrs".
Only freeze fresh food which is in a
good condition.
Storing frozen food
When buying frozen food to store in
your freezer check
– that the packaging is not damaged,
– the use by date,
– the temperature at which the frozen
food is being stored in the shop.
The length of time it can be kept is reduced if it has been stored at a
temperaure warmer than -18 °C.
^ Buy frozen food once you have finished the rest of your shopping and
wrap it in newspaper or use a cool
bag or box to transport it.
^ Store it in the freezer as soon as possible.
Never re-freeze partially or fully defrosted food. Consume defrosted
food as soon as possible as it will
lose its nutritional value and spoil if
left for too long. Defrosted food may
only be re-frozen after it has been
cooked.
22
Hints on home freezing
– The following types of food are suitable for freezing :
Fresh meat, poultry, game, fish, vegetables, herbs, fresh fruit, dairy products, pastry, leftovers, egg yolks, egg
whites and a range of pre-cooked
meals.
– The following types of food are not
suitable for freezing :
grapes, lettuces, radishes, sour
cream, mayonnaise, eggs in their
shells, onions, whole raw apples and
pears.
– To retain colour, taste and vitamin C,
vegetables should be blanched after
they have been trimmed and
washed. To blanch: bring a large
saucepan of water to the boil, immerse the vegetables in the fast boiling water for 2-3 minutes, depending
on variety. Remove and cool quickly
in cold water. Drain and pack ready
for freezing.
– Lean meat freezes better than fatty
meat and can be stored for considerably longer.
– To prevent chops, steaks, cutlets or
rolled meat from freezing together in
solid blocks when packed, separate
with a sheet of plastic freezer film.
Freezing and storing food
– Do not season fresh foods or
blanched vegetables before freezing. Only season cooked food lightly
before freezing but care should be
taken as the taste of some spices alters when frozen.
– Do not place hot foods or drinks in
the freezer. This causes already
frozen food to thaw and increases
the energy consumption considerably. Allow hot foods and drinks to
cool down before placing them in the
freezer.
Packing
^ Freeze food in portions.
Suitable packing material
– plastic freezer film
– freezer bags
– freezer containers
– aluminium foil
Freezer bags may also be sealed using home heat sealing kits.
^ Expel as much air as possible from
bags etc. before sealing them to prevent freezer burn on food.
^ Close the packaging tightly with
– rubber bands
– plastic clips
– string or bag ties
– cold resistant adhesive tape.
^ Make a note of the contents and the
date of freezing on the packaging.
unsuitable packing material
– wrapping paper
– grease-proof paper
– cellophane
– dustbin liners
– plastic carrier bags
Before placing food in the freezer
^ When freezing more than 2 kg of
fresh food, switch on the Super
freeze function for a while before
placing the food in the freezer (see
"Super freeze").
Placing in the freezer
Fresh food can be placed in any
drawer for freezing, however it is preferable to use the upper drawers. Large
quantities can be placed directly on the
evaporator plates to freeze the food
quickly. To do this first take out one or
several freezer drawers.
Do not place frozen food, even if it is
in a flat package, in the space between the roof of the freezer and the
top evaporator plate. This space is
important for an unhindered air circulation and troublefree operation of
the appliance.
Each drawer and evaporator plate
can be loaded with a maximum of
25 kg.
^ Place the food flat in the bottom of
the drawers or on the evaporator
plates in the freezer so that it freezes
through to the core as quickly as possible.
^ Make sure that the packaging and
containers are dry to prevent them
sticking together when frozen.
23
Freezing and storing food
When freezing, make sure that food
already frozen does not come into
contact with fresh food being frozen
as this could cause the frozen food
to begin to defrost.
month the food was first placed in the
freezer.
Defrosting
Frozen food can be defrosted in different ways:
Freezer calendar
– in the microwave oven,
The freezer calendar on the freezer
drawer gives the length of time which
various foods can be stored effectively.
– in the oven using the "Fan" or "Defrost" setting,
Where the storage time given on the
packaging differs, follow the advice on
the packaging.
Marker system for frozen food
Markers serve as a reminder of how
long food has been stored.
Each freezer drawer has two slide
markers with dials. The months are represented on the dials as 1 – 12.
– at room temperature,
– in the fridge.
Fruit should be defrosted at room temperature in its packing or in a covered
bowl.
Most vegetables can be cooked while
still frozen. Just put straight into boiling
water or hot fat. The cooking time is
slightly less than that of fresh vegetables.
Poultry It is particularly important to
observe food hygiene rules when defrosting poultry. Do not use the liquid
from defrosted poultry. Pour it away and
wash the container it was in, the sink
and your hands.
^ Slide the markers onto the guide runners on the edge of the drawers.
Use the markers to indicate the type of
food being frozen and turn the dials to
the appropriate number to indicate the
24
Warning
Never re-freeze partially of fully defrosted food. Consume defrosted
food as soon as possible as it will
lose its nutritional value and spoil if
left for too long. Defrosted food may
only be re-frozen after it has been
cooked.
Freezing and storing food
Ice cubes
Freezer tray
(depending on model)
The freezer tray can be used for freezing soft fruit, herbs, small items etc. The
tray allows you to space out the food so
that it does not stick together and
keeps its shape.
^ Press down the release button on the
ice cube tray and fill the tray with water. Any excess will flow out through
the outlet.
^ Now pull the release button up to
seal the ice cube tray. Place the tray
on the bottom of one of the freezer
drawers.
^ Once frozen use a blunt instrument,
for example a spoon handle, to remove the ice tray from the freezer.
^ Ice cubes can be removed easily
from the tray by holding it under cold
running water for a short while.
Cooling drinks
^ Place the food on the tray.
^ Hang the tray in one of the upper
freezer drawers.
Leave food for 10 - 12 hours to freeze
thoroughly on the tray. Transfer it to a
freezer bag or suitable container once
frozen. Place the bag or container in
the freezer drawer.
Drinks are best cooled quickly in the refrigerator section using the Super cool
function. If bottles are, however, placed
in the freezer for rapid cooling, make
sure bottles are not left in the freezer for
more than one hour, as they could
burst.
25
Freezing and storing food
Ice pack
(Depending on model)
The ice pack prevents the temperature
in the freezer rising too quickly in the
event of a power cut.
Place the ice pack in the upper drawer
directly on top of food or to save space
on the freezer tray. The ice pack will be
at its most effective after it has been in
the freezer for approx. 24 hours.
If there is a power cut lay the ice pack
directly on top of the frozen food in the
upper drawer so that the food will be
kept cold for the longest time possible.
When placing fresh food in the freezer,
use the ice pack to separate the fresh
food from the food which is already
frozen so that the frozen food does not
begin to thaw.
The ice pack can also be used in a cool
bag to keep food or drinks cool for a
short period of time.
26
Defrosting
Refrigerator section
Before defrosting
Condensate and frost can build up on
the back wall of the refrigerator section
whilst it is in use. These are automatically removed and defrosted by the appliance.
^ Switch on the super freeze function at
least 4 hours before defrosting to ensure frozen food retains its cold reserve for longer when taken out of the
freezer.
The condensate is drained away via a
channel and drain hole into an evaporation system at the back of the appliance.
^ Remove the frozen food from the
freezer and place it in another freezer
or cool box or wrap it in several layers of newspaper or cloths and store
in a cool place until the freezer is
ready for use again.
Ensure that the condensate channel
and drain hole are kept clean and
are never blocked so that condensate can flow away without hindrance.
Freezer section
The freezer section does not defrost automatically because frozen food must
not be allowed to defrost.
In normal use ice and frost will form on
the evaporator plates. If allowed to accumulate, this will impair the efficiency
of the freezer and increase the consumption of electricity.
Do not scrape ice and frost off the
evaporator plates as this can damage the evaporator plates and make
the freezer unusable.
^ Take all freezer drawers out of the
freezer section.
To defrost
Carry out the defrosting procedure
as quickly as possible if food has
not been placed in another freezer.
The longer the food is left out at
room temperature, the faster it defrosts.
^ Switch the appliance on with the On /
Off button.
The temperature display goes out. If
it does not go out then the safety lock
is probably engaged.
^ Open the freezer section door.
The freezer section should be defrosted
from time to time. It must be defrosted if
a layer of ice approx. 5 mm thick has
accumulated. It is best to defrost when
only very little food or no food at all is
left in the freezer.
27
Defrosting
We do not recommend the use of
hot air blowers such as hairdryers
for defrosting your appliance.
Never place electric heaters or candles in the appliance to defrost it.
These can damage the plastic parts.
^ Open out the outlet guide for defrosted water.
^ Place a container in front of the appliance to collect the defrosted water.
Make sure that the container does
not overflow.
To speed up defrosting, a bowl with hot
water (not boiling) can be placed in the
appliance.
28
Do not use defrosting sprays, or
de-icers as they could contain substances which could damage the
plastic parts and which may cause a
build up of gases and pose a danger to health.
After defrosting
^ Empty the container.
^ Use a sponge or a towel to mop up
any water from defrosting still in the
appliance.
^ Clean the freezer section and then
dry it thoroughly.
^ Fold the outlet guide back into position.
^ Close the door and then switch the
freezer section on.
The temperature display for the
freezer section lights up.
^ Switch on the super freeze function
so that the freezer can cool down
quickly. The super freeze indicator
light will come on.
^ Once the temperature in the freezer
has reached the required temperature place the food back in the
freezer drawers and place them back
in the freezer.
^ Switch off super freeze by pressing
the super freeze button. The indicator
light will go out.
Cleaning and care
Never use cleaning agents containing abrasive substances such as
sand, soda, acids or chemical solvents.
^ Take out any removable parts e.g.
shelves for cleaning.
Cleaning the outer casing, the
interior and accessories
"Non-abrasive" cleaning agents are
also unsuitable as they can cause
matt areas to appear.
Use lukewarm water with a little washing up liquid. Accessories and shelves
should be hand washed only. The butter dish is, however, dishwasher safe.
For stainless steel surfaces, use a
proprietary stainless steel cleaning
agent.
^ Clean the refrigerator section at least
once a month and the freezer section
each time it is defrosted.
Make sure that no water can penetrate into the electronic unit, into the
light or into the ventilation gaps.
^ Clean the condensate channel and
drain hole frequently, so that condensate can drain away unhindered. Use
a straw or similar to clear the drain if
necessary.
Do not let water get into the drainage channel and drain hole when
cleaning.
Never use steam cleaning apparatus to defrost or clean the appliance.
The steam could attack the electrical
components and cause a short circuit.
The data plate located inside the appliance must not be removed. It contains information which is required in
the event of a service call.
Before cleaning
^ Switch the appliance off by pressing
both On-Off switches.
^ Clean stainless steel surfaces with a
suitable cleaning agent.
^ After cleaning, wipe the outer casing,
the interior and accessories with a
damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth.
Leave the doors open to air the appliance for a short while.
E-Cloth
^ A microfibre "E-Cloth" is available
from the Miele UK Spare Parts Department, Part Number 980 13530,
which is suitable for cleaning surfaces such as stainless steel, glass,
plastic and chrome without the use of
chemicals.
^ Take any food out of the appliance
and store it in a cool place.
^ Defrost the freezer section.
29
Cleaning and care
After cleaning
If you are unsure about a particular
product or need further advice
please contact your nearest Miele
Sales office. See back page for address.
Ventilation gaps
^ The ventilation gaps should be
cleaned on a regular basis with a
brush or vacuum cleaner. A build up
of dust will increase the appliance’s
energy consumption.
Door seals
Do not use any oils or grease on the
door seals as these will cause the
seals to deteriorate and become porous with time.
The door seals should be cleaned regularly with clean water and then wiped
dry with a soft cloth.
Metal grille at the back of the
appliance
The metal grille at the back of the appliance (heat exchanger) should be
dusted at least once a year. A build up
of dust will increase the energy consumption of the appliance.
When cleaning the grille, make sure
that the pipework and other components do not get broken or damaged
in any way.
30
^ Replace all shelves and accessories
in the refrigerator section.
^ Place food back in the refrigerator
section, close the appliance doors,
and switch the appliance on.
^ Switch on the super freeze function
so that the freezer section can cool
down quickly. The super freeze indicator light will come on.
^ Once the temperature in the freezer
has reached the required temperature place the food back in the
freezer drawers and place them back
in the freezer section.
^ Switch off the super freeze function
with the super freeze button.
The indicator light will go out.
Problem solving guide
Repairs to electrical appliances
should only be carried out by a suitably qualified and competent person
in accordance with local and national safety regulations. Unauthorised repairs could be dangerous.
The following can be corrected without
contacting the Miele Service Department.
What to do if . . .
. . . strange noises can be heard after
switching on the appliance, especially after it has just been installed.
^ Check to see whether any pieces of
furniture next to the appliance are vibrating whilst the appliance is in operation.
Switch the appliance off then:
^ Check whether the appliance is
aligned correctly.
^ Check whether all parts at the rear of
the appliance are free from hindrance. Remove any hindrance.
^ Check whether the cable clips have
been unclipped from the back of the
appliance. They could vibrate when
the appliance is operating.
^ Are all removable parts securely located in the appliance?
^ Are bottles or containers touching
each other?
Remember that the noise of the compressor and the coolant circulating in
the system is unavoidable.
. . . the refrigerator or freezer section
does not get cool.
^ Check whether the respective section
has been switched on. The temperature display for that section should be
illuminated.
^ Check that the plug is correctly inserted in the socket.
^ Check that the fuse is not defective
and that the mains fuse has not
blown. If it has contact the Miele Service Department.
. . . the door to the freezer section will
not open because it has been opened
and closed too many times in succession.
This is not a fault. The suction caused
by opening and closing the door is preventing the door from opening. Wait a
few minutes and then try again. It
should now open without force.
. . . the temperature in the refrigerator
or freezer section is too low.
^ Set the temperature to a warmer setting.
^ The super freeze or super cool function has not been switched off. The
respective indicator light is still on.
. . . the appliance is switching in too
frequently and for too long.
^ Check whether ventilation gaps have
been covered over or become too
dusty.
^ Check whether, the metal grille (heat
exchanger) at the rear of the appliance has become too dusty.
31
Problem solving guide
^ The doors have been opened too frequently, or a large quantity of fresh
food has been put in at once for
freezing.
^ Check that the doors have been
properly closed.
^ Check whether a thick layer of ice
has built up in the freezer section. If it
has then the freezer section will need
defrosting.
. . . food has frozen together.
Use a blunt instrument, e.g. a spoon
handle or plastic scraper to carefully
prise it apart.
. . . there is a thick layer of ice in the
freezer section.
^ Check whether the door to the
freezer section closes properly.
^ Defrost and then clean the freezer
section.
Too thick a layer of ice reduces efficiency and increases energy consumption.
. . . the alarm sounds and the temperature display for the freezer section
flashes.
The freezer section temperature has
risen above the temperature set, because
^ the freezer door has been opened
too frequently or large amounts of
fresh food have been put in at once
for freezing.
^ the ventilation gaps are blocked.
32
^ There has been a lengthy interruption
to the power supply.
Once the problem has been resolved
the alarm will go out and the temperature display for the freezer section will
light up constantly.
. . . a bar lights up or flashes in the
temperature displays.
Check the temperature displays
approx. 6 hours after switching the appliance on. The temperature will not
show in the display until it reaches a
certain temperature.
. . . "F0" to "F5" appears in the temperature display
There is a technical fault. Call the Miele
Service Department.
. . . "nA" appears in the temperature
display.
The temperature in the freezer section
rose as a result of a power cut at some
point during the last couple of days.
^ Press the alarm button whilst "nA" is
lit up.
The temperature display will show the
warmest temperature reached in the
freezer section during the power cut.
Depending on the temperature displayed you should check the condition
of food in the freezer.
If it has defrosted or started to defrost
check that it is still safe to use and if so
use it as quickly as possible. Defrosted
food may only be re-frozen after it has
been cooked.
Problem solving guide
This warmest temperature will be displayed for approx. 1 minute after which
the display will show the actual temperature currently in the freezer section.
. . . the super freeze or super cool indicator light does not light up although the appliance is working.
^ Press the sides of the lamp cover inwards, disengage the cover and
unclip it at the rear.
^ Unscrew the bulb and replace it with
a new one.

The indicator light is defective. Call the
Miele Service Department.
. . . the appliance will not switch off.
The safety lock is engaged.
. . . the interior light in the refrigerator
section does not work.
^ Has the door been left open for too
long? The light automatically goes
out if the door has been left open for
approx. 15 minutes.
If this is not the case then the bulb may
be defective and need replacing:
^ Disconnect the appliance from the
mains. Switch off at the wall and withdraw the plug from the socket (pull
by the plug not the cable), or disconnect the mains fuse or remove the
screw-out fuse in countries where this

Non-rewireable plugs (BS 1363)
If this machine is fitted with a
non-rewireable plug, the following
information applies:
If the socket outlets are not suitable for
the plug supplied with this product, it
must be cut off and an appropriate plug
fitted.
The fuse carrier and the fuse should be
removed from the old plug and disposed of. The old plug should then be
disposed of and on no account be inserted into any socket elsewhere in the
house (electric shock hazard).
The fuse cover must be re-fitted when
changing the fuse, and if the fuse cover
is lost, the plug must not be used until a
suitable replacement is obtained. The
colour of the correct replacement cover
is that of the coloured insert in the base
of the plug, or the colour that is embossed in words in the base of the plug
(as applicable to the design of the plug
fitted).
The correct fuse rating of the replacement fuses that are ASTA approved to
BS 1362 should be fitted. Replacement
fuse covers may be purchased from
your local electrical supplier, or Miele
Service agent.

off for too long causing the internal temperature in the appliance to rise with
the risk of food deteriorating and going
off.
Ventilation
Location
It should not be installed where it is exposed to direct sunlight or directly adjacent to a heat-producing appliance
such as an oven or a radiator. The appliance should be installed in a dry well
ventilated room.
The room temperature should not go
above or below the climate range for
which the appliance is designed. The
higher the ambient temperature of the
room the more energy the appliance requires to operate.
Air at the rear of the appliance gets
warm. To ensure sufficient ventilation
the ventilation gaps must not be covered over. The air inlet and outlet must
not be covered or blocked in any way.
They should be dusted on a regular
basis.
Fitting the handles
If the door hinging does not require
changing the handles should now be
fitted to the appliance doors.
Do not place any appliance which
gives off heat, such as a toaster or
microwave oven on top of this appliance, as this would increase the appliance’s energy consumption.
Climate range
The appliance is designed for a use
within certain climate ranges (ambient
temperatures) and should not be used
outside this range. The climate range of
this appliance is stated on the data
plate inside the appliance.

Building in the appliance
The air inlet and outlet must not be
covered or blocked in any way.
They should be dusted on a regular
basis.
When built into a kitchen run (max.
depth 580 mm) the appliance can be
installed directly next to a kitchen furniture housing unit. The appliance door
b will protrude in front of furniture
fronts at the sides by 34 mm and by 51
mm in the middle of the door. This enables the doors to be opened and shut
without being obstructed.
The appliance can be installed in a
kitchen run. To match the height of the
rest of the kitchen, the appliance can
be fitted with a suitable top box a.
A ventilation gap of at least 50 mm
depth must be allowed for behind the
appliance for air to circulate.
The cross section of the air outlet under
the room ceiling must be at least 300
cm2 to ensure that air can circulate
without hindrance. Otherwise the appliance has to work too hard resulting in
an increase in electricity consumption.
The larger the cross section, the more
efficient the appliance.
When installed next to a wall c a distance of approx. 36 mm is needed on
the hinge side between the wall and the
appliance, so that the doors and the
handles have sufficient space for opening.
When securing to adjoining furniture
d or if a spacer is fitted between the
appliance and the wall, please note the
following:
^ Ensure that the doors have sufficient
space for opening fully after the appliance has been secured.
^ Do not drill within the area marked
with criss cross pattern as this
would damage insulated parts of the
appliance.
^ To secure the appliance to adjoining
kitchen furniture use self-tapping
screws. The depth of the screw must
not exceed 10 mm. See small illustration.
