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 boltcatches, if fitted. By doing this you ensure that children cannot lock themselves in the
4
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.
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 Service.
• If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer,
its service agent or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.

Interior Accessories
Storage Shelves
The glass shelf above the fruit and
vegetable compartment should
always remain in position, to ensure
fruit and vegetables stay fresh longer.
The remaining storage shelves can be
adjusted to various heights:
Pull the storage shelf forward until it
can be tipped up or down and remoD338
ved.
To insert at a different height use the same procedure in reverse.
Adjustment for tall goods:
Remove the front half of the two-part vario glass storage shelf and insert it
at a different level. Space is thus gained for storage of tall goods on the
underlying storage shelf.
Variable Inner Door
The door compartments can be pulled up and removed, and inserted at
other positions as needed.
Moisture regulator
There is an adjustable air grille in front of the shelf above the fruit and vegetable compartments.
The opening in the ventilation slots can be adjusted with the slider.
Right slider: Ventilation slots opened.
With the ventilation slots open, more air circulation results in a lower air
moisture content in the fruit and vegetable compartments.
10
Left slider: Ventilation slots closed.
When the ventilation slots are closed,
the natural moisture content of the
food in the fruit and vegetable compartments is preserved for longer.
Variable Storage Box
1.
2.
Some models are equipped with a
variable storage box which is fitted
under a door shelf compartment and
can be slid sideways.
The box can be inserted under any
door shelf compartment.
To change the position of the storage box; lift the shelf compartment
with the box upwards and out of the
holders in the door and remove the
retaining bracket out of the guide
under the shelf compartment.
Reverse the above operation to insert
the shelf at a different height.
Fresh food refrigeration
To obtain the best performance:
• do not store warm food or evaporating liquid in the refrigerator
• do cover or wrap the food, particularly if it has a strong flavour.
• Position food so that air can circulate freely round it.
Useful hints:
Meat (all types): wrap in polythene bags and place on the glass shelf above the
vegetable drawer(s). For safety, store in this way only one or two days at the
most.
Cooked foods, cold dishes, etc: these should be covered and may be placed
on any shelf.
Fruit and vegetables: these should be thoroughly cleaned and placed in the
special drawer(s) provided.
Butter and cheese: these should be placed in special airtight containers or wapped in aluminium foil or polythene bags to exclude as much air as possible.
11
Milk bootles: these should have a cap and should be stored in the bottle rack
on the door.
Bananas, potatoes, onions and garlic, if not packed, must not be kept in the
refrigerator.

Remove the mains plug or switch off or turn out the circuit breaker or fuse.
Finally, leave the doors open so as to avoid a build up of odours.
Freezing and storing frozen food
You can use your freezer for freezing fresh food yourself.
Important!
1.
2.
• 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 contamination of
other frozen 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 in the compartment as per the diagram.. Unfrozen food must not touch items
already frozen, otherwise the frozen
X
food could begin to defrost.
Place frozen foods in the drawers
sorted by type, as far as possible.
15
Preparation of Ice Cubes
1.
2.
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 supplied.
Freezing Calendar
• The symbols on the drawers show
different types of frozen goods.
• The numbers indicate storage times
in months for the appropriate
types of frozen goods.
Whether the upper or lower value of the indicated storage time is valid
depends on the quality of the foods and pre-treating before freezing. The
lower value applies to foods with high fat content.
Defrosting
Refrigerator
Frost is automatically eliminated from the evaporator of the refrigerator
compartment every time the motor compressor stops, during normal use.
The defrost water drains out through a trough into a special container at
the back of the appliance, over the motor compressor, where it evaporates.
Freezer
The freezer compartment of this model, on the other hand, is a "no frost"
type. This means that there is no buildup of frost when it is in operation,
neither on the internal walls nor on the foods.
The absence of frost is due to the continuous circulation of cold air inside
the compartment, driven by an automatically controlled fan.
16
Cleaning and Care
For hygienic reasons the appliance interior, including interior accessories,
should be cleaned regularly.
Warning!
1.
2.
3.

ve 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.
Attention!
• 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.
Important: Insert the 2 upper shelves in the original position after leaving them for cleaning.
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.
17
Energy Saving Tips
• Do not install the appliance near 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.
