1 Safety
The safety aspects of our refrigerators/freezers comply with accepted
technical standards and the German Appliance Safety Law.
Nevertheless, we consider it our obligation to make you aware of the
following safety information:
Intended use
• The refrigerator is intended for use in the home. It is suitable for the
cooling, freezing and storing of frozen food, as well as for making ice.
If the appliance is used for purposes other than those intended or
used incorrectly, no liability can be accepted by the manufacturer for
any damage that may be caused.
• Alterations or changes to the freezer are not permitted for reasons of
safety.
• If you use the refrigerator in a commercial application or for
purposes other than the cooling, freezing or frozen storage of foods,
please observe all valid legal regulations for your application.
Prior to initial start–up
• Check the refrigerator for transport damage. Under no circumstance
should a damaged appliance be plugged in! In the event of damage,
please contact the vendor.
Refrigerant
The refrigerant isobutane (R600a) is contained within the refrigerant
circuit of the appliance, a natural gas with a high level of
environmental compatibility, which is nevertheless flammable.
• During transportation and installation of the appliance, be certain
that none of the components of the refrigerant circuit become
damaged.
• If the refrigerant circuit should become damaged:
– avoid open flames and sources of ignition;
– thoroughly ventilate the room in which the appliance is situated.
Safety of children
• Packaging (e.g. wraps, polystyrene) can be dangerous for children.
There is a risk of suffocation! Keep packaging material away from
children!
• Please make old appliances unusable prior to disposal. Pull out the
mains plug, cut off the mains cable, break or remove spring or bolt
catches, if fitted. By doing this you ensure that children cannot lock
4
Safety
themselves in the fridge when playing (there is risk of suffocation!) or
get themselves into other dangerous situations.
• Often children cannot recognise the hazards present in household
appliances. It is therefore important that you ensure adequate
supervision and never let children play with the appliance!
Daily Operation
• Containers with flammable gases or liquids can leak at low
temperatures. There is a risk of an explosion! Do not store any
containers with flammable materials such as, for example, spray cans,
fire extinguisher refill cartridges etc in the refrigerator/freezer.
• Bottles and cans must not be placed in the freezer compartment.
They can burst when the contents freeze, high carbonate content
drinks can even explode! Never store lemonade, juices, beer, wine,
sparkling wine etc. in the freezer compartment. Exception: high
alcohol content spirits can be stored in the freezer compartment.
• Do not put ice creams or ice cubes in the mouth immediately after
removal from the freezer compartment. Very cold ice can freeze to
the lips or tongue and cause injury.
• Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could freeze to
the food.
• Do not operate any electrical appliances in the refrigerator/freezer
(e.g. electric ice cream makers, mixers etc.).
• Before cleaning the appliance, always switch off the appliance and
unplug it, or pull the house fuse or switch off the circuit breaker.
• When unplugging always pull the plug from the mains socket, do not
pull on the cable.

Disposal
Appliance Packaging Information
All materials are environmentally sound! They can be dumped or
burned at an incinerating plant without danger!
About the materials: The plastics can be recycled and are identified as
follows:
>PE< for polyethylene, e.g. the outer covering and the bags in the
interior.
>PS< for polystyrene foam, e.g. the pads, which are all free of
chlorofluorocarbon.
The carton parts are made from recycled paper and should be disposed
of at a waste-paper recycling collection location.
Disposal of old Appliances
For environmental reasons, refrigeration appliances must be disposed
of properly. This applies to your old appliance, and - at the end of its
service life - for your new appliance as well.
1
Warning! Before disposing of old appliances make them inoperable.
Remove plug from mains, sever the power cable, remove or destroy any
snap or latch closures. This eliminates the danger that playing children
lock themselves into the appliance (danger of suffocation!) or place
themselves into other life-endangering situations.
Disposal:
• The appliance may not be disposed of with domestic waste or bulky
refuse.
• The refrigerant circuit, especially the heat exchanger at the back of
the appliance, may not be damaged.
• Information concerning collection schedules or locations can be
obtained from the local disposal authorities or town hall.

Installation
Installation Location
The appliance should be set up in a well ventilated, dry room.
Energy use is affected by the ambient temperature.
The appliance should therefore
– not be exposed to direct sunlight;
– not be installed next to radiators, cookers or other sources of heat;
– only be installed at a location whose ambient temperature
corresponds to the climate classification, for which the appliance is
designed.
The climate classification can be found on the serial plate, which is
located at the left on the inside of the appliance.
The following table shows which ambient temperature is correct for
each climate classification: each climate classification:
Climate classification
for an ambient temperature of
SN
+10 to +32 °C
N
+16 to +32 °C
ST
+18 to +38 °C
T
+18 to +43 °C
If installation next to a source of heat is unavoidable, the following
minimum clearances must be maintained at the sides of the appliance:
– for electric cookers 3 cm;
– for oil and coal fired ranges 30 cm.
If these clearances cannot be maintained a heat insulating pad is
required between the cooker and the refrigeration appliance.
If the refrigeration appliance is installed next to another refrigerator or
freezer a clearance of 5 cm at the sides is required, in order to prevent
the formation of condensation on the outside of the appliance.
7
Installation
Your refrigerator needs air
The refrigerating unit of your refrigerator is designed for maintenancefree operation. What it should never lack is good ventilation. Air is supplied under the door through the ventilation slot between the refrigerator an storage surface. Air is extracted through the upper ventilation
grille. Never obstruct these openings by plinth screens or crockery.
If your refrigerator is installed
under a continuous worktop, an air
outlet opening of at least 200 cm2
and a ventilation grille (A/B)
matching the worktop design
should be provided at the rear of
the worktop. The cut surfaces of
the worktop (C) should be varnished to avoid swelling due to
penetration of moisture.
The appliance wall distance must
be at least 30 mm and should be
checked before the ventilation grille is inserted.
Special accessories:
A Ventilation grille, brown
B Ventilation grille, white

Electrical Connection
Any electrical work required to install this appliance should be carried
out by a qualified electrician or competent person.
1
WARNING – THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
The manufacturer declines any liability should these safety measures
not be observed.
Before switching on, make sure the electricity supply voltage is the
same as that indicated on the appliance rating plate. The rating plate is
inside, on the left.
The appliance is supplied with a 13 amp plug fitted. In the event of
having to change the fuse in the plug supplied, a 13 amp ASTA
approved (BS 1362) fuse must be used.
Important
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the
following code:
Green and YellowEarth
Blue Neutral
BrownLive
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not
correspond with the coloured markings indentifying the terminals in
your plug, proceed as follows:
1.The wire coloured green and yellow must be connected to the
terminal marked with the letter „E“ or by the earth symbol or coloured
green and yellow.
2.The wire coloured blue must be connected to the terminal „N“ or
coloured black.
3.The wire coloured brown must be connected to the terminal marked
„L“ or coloured red.
4.Upon completion there must be not cut, or stray strands of wire
present and the cord clamp must be secure over the outer sheat.
1
Warning! A cut-off plug inserted into a 13 amp socket is a serious
safety (shock) hazard. Ensure that the cut-off plug is disposed of safely.
11
Plug socket
The plug socket necessary for connection of your appliance to the
electricity supply should be positioned so that it is possible to pull out
the appliance plug.
If your appliance is installed under
a continuous worktop, the plug
socket should be provided as
shown.
A concealed protective contact
plug socket requires 10 A/16 A
fusing.
If the socket is not accessible once the appliance is built in, the
electrical installation must include suitable means of isolating the
appliance from the mains (e.g. fuse, cut-out, current trip or similar with
a minimum contact separation of 3 mm).
Starting up and temperature regulation
0 Insert the plug of the connection lead into the plug socket with
protective earth contact. When the refrigerator compartment door is
opened, the internal lighting is switched on.
The temperature selector knob is
located on the RH side of the
refrigerator compartment.
Setting „0“ means: Off.
Turning clockwise in direction „1“:
Refrigerating unit on, the latter
then operating automatically.
Setting „1“ means:
Hightest temperature, warmest
setting.
Setting „6“ (end-stop) means:
Lowest temperature, coldest
setting.
The temperatures in the refrigerator compartment and freezer
compartment cannot be independently regulated.
At a low ambient temperature of around 16°C, setting „1“ should be
selected. At ambient temperatures of around 25°C, select setting „2“.
12
If you require a lower temperature, select setting „3“ or „4“. On this
setting, you can be sure the fresh food will be reliably frozen and that a
storage temperature of -18°C will be maintained in the freezer
compartment.
If you want the freeze fresh food rapidly, select setting „6“, ensuring
that the temperature in the refrigerator compartment does not drop
blow 0°C. You should also promptly reset the temperature regulator to
setting „3“ or „4“.
Important!
High ambient temperatures (e.g. on hot summer days) and a cold
setting on the temperature regulator (position"5" to "6") can cause the
compressor to run continuously.
Reason: when the ambient temperature is high, the compressor must
run continuously to maintain the low temperature in the appliance. The
fridge will not be able to defrost since automatic defrosting of the
fridge is only possible when the compressor is not running (see also
"Defrosting" section). The result is the build up of a thick layer of frost
on the fridge rear wall.
If this happens, turn the temperature regulator back to a warmer
setting (position "3" to "4"). At this setting the compressor will be
switched on and off as usual and automatic defrosting recommenced.
Interior Accessories
Storage shelves/wire trays
Various glass or plastic storage shelves and wire trays are included with
your appliance - different models have different combinations.
0 You should always slide one of the full size glass storage shelf into the
lowest set of guides, above the fruit and the vegetable containers, and
keep it in this position.
The height of the storage shelves can be adjusted:
0 To do this pull the storage shelf forward until it can be swivelled
upwards or downwards and removed.
0 Please do the same in reverse to insert the shelf at a different height.
13
VARIO glass storage shelf
Your appliance is equipped with two

The length of storage time depends on the type of food – see
manufacturer’s instructions.
However, small quantities of fresh foods can be frozen (see: „Freezing
and storage“).
Tip: Food in the fridge should always be covered or packaged, to
prevent drying and tainting of other food.
The following are suited for packaging:
– Polyethylene airtight bags and wraps;
– Plastic containers with lids;
– Special plastic covers with elastic;
– aluminium foil.
14
Freezing and storing frozen food
The freezer compartment is for freezing and storing food.
Important!
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18 °C or colder before freezing food or storing food already frozen.
• Do not freeze too large a quantity at any one time (max. 2 kg per 24
h). The quality of the food is best preserved when it is frozen right
through to the core as quickly as possible.
• Allow warm food to cool down before freezing. The warmth will
cause increased ice formation and increase the power consumption.
• Please note the maximum storage times specified by the
manufacturer.
• Thawed foods which have not been processed further (cooked into
meals) may not under any circumstances be frozen a second time.
0 All foods must be packed air tight prior to freezing, so that they do not
dry out or lose their flavour, and so that no flavour contamination of
other frozen goods occurs.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
freeze to the food.
0 Lay the packaged food on the floor of the freezer compartment.
Unfrozen food must not touch items already frozen, otherwise the
frozen food could begin to defrost.
Tips:
• The following are suited for the packaging of frozen goods:
– freezer bags and polyethylene wraps;
– special cans for frozen goods;
– extra–thick aluminium foil.
• The following are suitable for sealing bags and wrap:
plastic clips, rubber bands or tape.
• Smooth the air out of the bag before sealing; air makes it easier for
the frozen food to dry out.
• Make flat packages, because these freeze more quickly.
• Do not fill cans for frozen goods to the brim with liquid or paste–like
goods, because liquids expand during freezing.
15
Preparation of Ice Cubes
0 Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place it in the freezer
compartment and leave to freeze.
0 To loosen the frozen cubes, either bend the ice cube tray or hold it
under running water for a few seconds.
Important! Never try to free an ice tray that is frozen to the freezer
compartment using pointed or sharp edged objects, since you may
damage the refrigerating circuit. Use the plastic scraper.
Defrosting
The fridge defrosts automatically
The rear wall of the fridge covers with frost when the compressor is
running, and defrosts when the compressor is off.
The water from the thawing frost evaporates by itself.
Defrosting the freezer compartment
During use and when the freezer compartment door is opened,
moisture is deposited in the freezer compartment as frost. Remove this
frost from time to time with the soft plastic scraper. Under no
circumstances use hard or pointed objects to remove frost.
The freezer compartment should always be defrosted when the layer of
frost has reached a thickness of approx. 4 millimetres; however at least
once a year. A good time for defrosting is when the appliance is empty
or contains only little food.
Warning!
• Do not use electrical heating appliances or any other mechanical or
artificial devices to speed up the defrosting process, with the
exception of those recommended in these operating instructions.
• Do not use defrosting sprays, they can be hazardous to your health
and/or contain substances that damage plastics.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could
freeze to the food.
0 Remove frozen food, wrap it in several layers of newspaper and store it,
covered, in a cool place.

0 Switch off the appliance and unplug it, or pull the fuse or switch off
the circuit breaker.
0 Remove the stopper from the meltwater outlet and place a bowl
underneath it to catch the meltwater.
Tip: You can speed up the
defrosting process by placing a pan
with hot water in the freezer
compartment and closing the
doors. Remove pieces of ice that
have fallen before they completely
defrost.
0 After defrosting, thoroughly clean
the freezer compartment ( see "Cleaning and Care" section).

Energy Saving Tips
• Do not install the appliance near cookers, radiators or other sources
of warmth. High ambient temperatures cause longer, more frequent
operation of the compressor.
• Ensure sufficient air circulation and exhaust at the appliance base
and at the back wall of the appliance. Never cover air vent openings.
• Do not place warm foods into the appliance. Allow warm foods to
cool first.
• Only leave door open as long as necessary.
• Do not set temperature any colder than necessary.
• Put frozen food in the fridge to defrost. The cold in the frozen food
will then be used to cool the fridge.
• Keep the heat emitting condenser, the metall grille on the rear wall
of your appliance, always clean.
