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
Intended use
• The refrigerator is intended for use in the home. It is suitable for the
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
• If you use the appliance in a commercial application or for purposes other
than the freezing or frozen storage of foods, please observe all valid legal
regulations for your application.
Prior to initial start–up
• Check the appliance for transport damage. Under no circumstance should
a damaged appliance be plugged in! In the event of damage, please contact
the vendor.
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 boltcatches, if
fitted. By doing this you ensure that children cannot lock 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 your mouth immediately after
removal from the freezer compartment. Very cold ice can freeze to lips or
tongue and cause injury.
• Do not touch frozen food with wet hands. Your hands could freeze to the
• 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.
In case of malfunction
• If the a malfunction occurs on the appliance, please look first in the "What
to do if ..." section of these instructions. If the information given there
does not help, please do not perform any further repairs yourself.
• Refrigerators/freezers may only be repaired by qualified service engineers.
Improper repairs can give rise to significant hazards. If your appliance
needs repairing, please contact your specialist dealer or our Customer

Freezing and storing frozen food
You can use your freezer for freezing fresh food yourself.
• The temperature in the freezer compartment must be –18 °C or colder
before freezing food.
• Please observe the freezing capacity given on the rating plate. The
freezing capacity is the maximum quantity of fresh food that can be
frozen within a period of 24 hours. If you wish to freeze food several
days in a row, please observe a maximum capacity of only 2/3 to 3/4
of that on the rating plate. 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.
• 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. 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.
Exception: high alcohol content spirits can be stored in the freezer.
• 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
10 kg
contamination of other frozen
10 kg
goods occurs.
Caution! Do not touch frozen food
with wet hands. Your hands could
freeze to the food.
Place the packed food in the drawers.
Place food to be frozen As shown in
figure. Unfrozen food must not
touch items already frozen,
otherwise the frozen food could
begin to defrost.
Press the fast freeze button 24 hours before introducing fresh food for
freezing of fresh food. The yellow light comes on.
Place frozen foods in the drawers sorted by type, as far as possible.
Preparation of Ice Cubes
Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place it in the freezer
compartment and leave to freeze.
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. Use the ice scraper
Ice pack
There are two ice packs in one drawer of the freezer.
In the event of a power failure or malfunction, the ice packs will lengthen
the amount of time it takes for the frozen food to become too warm by
several hours. The ice packs can only fulfil this task optimally if it is placed
in the uppermost drawer, at the front, above the frozen food. You can use
the ice packs for cooling cold bags.
The inner walls of the freezer are automatically defrosted.
Cleaning and Care
For hygienic reasons the appliance interior, including interior accessories,
should be cleaned regularly.
• The appliance must be disconnected from the mains during cleaning.
Danger of electrical shock! Before cleaning switch the appliance off and
remove the plug from the mains, or switch off or turn out the circuit
breaker or fuse.
• Never clean the appliance with a steam cleaner. Moisture could
accumulate in electrical components, danger of electrical shock! Hot
vapours can lead to the damage of plastic parts.
• The appliance must be dry before it is placed back into service.
• Ethereal oils and organic solvents can attack plastic parts, e.g.
– lemon juice or the juice from orange peals;
– butyric acid;
– cleansers which contain acetic acid.
Do not allow such substances to come into contact with appliance parts.
• Do not use any abrasive cleansers.
Remove frozen food and the food from the refrigerator. Wrap frozen food
in several layers of newspaper. Store it in a cool place, well covered.
Switch the appliance off and remove the plug from the mains, or switch off
or turn out the circuit breaker or fuse.
Clean the appliance and the interior accessories with a cloth and lukewarm
water. Commercially available dish washing detergents may also be used.
After cleaning wipe with fresh water and rub dry.
Accumulation of dust at the condenser increases energy consumption. For
this reason carefully clean the condenser at the back of the appliance once
a year with a soft brush or a vacuum cleaner.
Do not pull, move or damage any pipes and/or cables inside the cabinet.
Switching off the appliance
If the appliance is not going to be used for an extended period:
Remove all deep-frozen packages as well as ice trays.
Switch off the appliance by holding down the ON/OFF button.
Remove the mains plug or switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or fuse.
Clean thoroughly (see section: “Cleaning and Care”).
Leave the door open to avoid the build up of odours.
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.
