~

This appliance contains the coolant Isobutane (R600a), a natural gas which is environmentally friendly. Although it is flammable, it does not damage the ozone layer and does not increase the greenhouse effect. The use of this 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 the transportation and installation of the appliance that no parts of the cooling system are damaged. Leaking coolant can damage the eyes.

In the event of any damage:

- avoid open flames 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.

10

This data must correspond in order to avoid the risk of damage to the appliance. Consult a qualified electrician if in any doubt.

~

Do not connect the appliance to the mains electricity supply by a multi-socket adapter or an extension lead. These do not guarantee the required safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).

~

The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed when it is correctly earthed. It is most important that this basic safety requirement is observed and regularly tested and where there is any doubt, the household wiring system should be inspected by a qualified electrician.

The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage or injury caused by the lack of or inadequacy of an effective earthing system (e.g.

electric shock).

~

Installation, maintenance and repairs may only be carried out by a suitably qualified and competent person in strict accordance with current national and local safety regulations.

Repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be dangerous.

The manufacturer cannot be held liable for unauthorised work.

12

Warning and Safety instructions

Correct use

~

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.

~

Do not refreeze 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.

~

Do not store explosive materials in the appliance or any products containing propellants (e.g. spray cans). Thermostats switching on may produce sparks which could present a fire hazard. Flammable compounds could explode.

~

Do not operate any electrical equipment (e.g. an electric ice-cream maker) inside the appliance. Danger of sparking and explosion.

~

If storing alcohol with a high percentage proof in the refrigerator, 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, resulting in injury or damage.

13

Warning and Safety instructions

~

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 the food manufacturer's packaging regarding storage conditions and "use-by" dates.

~

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.

~

Do not place electric heaters or candles in the appliance to defrost it. These will damage the plastic parts.Do not use defrosting sprays or de-icers, as they might contain substances which could damage the plastic parts or which could cause the build-up of gases and pose a danger to health.

~

Do not use a steam-cleaning appliance to defrost or clean this appliance. Steam could reach electrical components and cause a short circuit.

~

Do not use any oils or grease on the door seals, as these will cause the seals to deteriorate and become porous with time.

~

If storing food which contains a lot of fat or oil in the appliance or the refrigerator door, make sure it does not come into contact with plastic components as this could cause stress cracks.

~

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.

14

Warning and Safety instructions

~

(ambient temperatures), and should not be used outside this range.

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, e.g. a garage, can lead to the appliance switching off for longer periods so that it cannot maintain the required temperature.

Stainless steel appliances

~

Do not use sticky notes, transparent adhesive tape, masking tape or other types of adhesive on the surface of the door. These damage the surface, causing it to lose its dirt-repellent protective coating.

~

The high-quality surface of the door is susceptible to scratching.

Even fridge magnets can cause scratching.

Disposal of your old appliance

~

Before disposing of an old appliance, first make the door latch or lock unusable.

This way you will prevent children from accidentally locking themselves in and endangering their lives.

~

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.

^ switch the appliance off,

^ disconnect it from the mains,

^ clean the appliance out and

^ leave the doors ajar to air the appliance.

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.

22

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.

The temperature in the appliance will rise:

– the more often the door is opened and the longer it is kept open,

– the more food that is stored in it,

– the warmer the food is which is being put into it,

– 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.

Dynamic cooling

The dynamic cooling fan automatically switches on when the cooling system for the refrigerator switches on. It distributes the temperature in the appliance to all areas evenly so that all the food will be chilled to about the same degree.

. . . in the freezer section

To freeze fresh food and to store frozen food for a long time, a temperature of

-18 °C is required. At this temperature the growth of micro-organisms is generally halted. As soon as the temperature rises 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.

. . . in the refrigerator and the

PerfectFresh zone

We recommend a temperature of 4 °C in the middle of the refrigerator.

The temperature in the PerfectFresh zone is controlled automatically, and is maintained at 0 to 3 °C.

23

The correct temperature

Setting the temperature

The temperatures in the refrigerator section/PrefectFresh zone and freezer section are set independently of one another.

^ Select the refrigerator or the freezer section.

The "Refrigerator" symbol or the

"Freezer" symbol will light up yellow.

^ You can now use the arrow sensors on either side of the temperature display to set the temperature you require.

By touching the

X sensor: the temperature will get colder

Y sensor: the temperature will get warmer.

The temperature being set will flash in the display.

The following information shows in the display when the sensors are touched:

– Touching a sensor once: the last

temperature selected flashes.

– Each subsequent touch of a sensor: adjusts the temperature shown in

1 °C steps.

– Leaving a finger on the sensor: changes the temperature continuously.

When the highest or lowest temperature in the range is reached, the

X or Y sensor disappears.

Approx. 5 seconds after taking your finger off a sensor, the average,

current temperature of the refrigerator or freezer section 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 give an accurate reading. If, after this time, the temperature is still too high or too low, you will need to adjust it again.

Temperature range

The temperature can be adjusted:

– In the refrigerator section from 4 °C to 9 °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 temperature. If the ambient temperature is too high, the appliance may not reach the lowest temperature.

30

Storing food in the refrigerator section

Different storage zones

Due to the natural circulation of the air in the appliance, there are different temperature zones in the refrigerator.

Cold, heavy air sinks to the lowest section of the appliance. Make use of the different zones when placing food in the appliance.

This appliance has automatic dynamic cooling, which helps to keep an even temperature when the fan is running, making the difference between the various zones less pronounced.

Warmest area

The warmest area is in the top section of the door. Use this for storing butter and cheese.

Coldest areas

The coldest areas in the refrigerator section are directly above the

PerfectFresh zone and in the

PerfectFresh zone itself which is slightly colder still.

Use these areas 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 temperature of approx. 4 °C.

Do not store explosive materials in the appliance or any products containing propellants (e.g. spray cans). Danger of explosion.

If storing alcohol with a high percentage proof, make sure it is tightly closed, and store upright.

If storing food which contains a lot of fat or oil in the refrigerator or the refrigerator door, make sure that it does not come into contact with plastic components as this could cause stress cracks.

Food must not touch the back wall of the refrigerator, as it may freeze to the back wall.

To allow air to circulate efficiently, do not pack food too closely together in the refrigerator. Do not cover the fan in the rear wall of the refrigerator, as this is essential for keeping the appliance cool.

31

Storing food in the refrigerator section

Food which is not suitable for storing in the refrigerator

Not all food is suitable for storing in a refrigerator at temperatures below 5 °C, as some food is sensitive to cold.

Cucumbers, for example, become glassy, aubergines bitter and potatoes sweet. Tomatoes and oranges lose their aroma, and the peel on citrus fruits hardens.

Food which is sensitive to cold includes:

– Pineapples, avocados, bananas, pomegranates, mangos, melons, papayas, passion fruit, citrus fruit (such as lemons, oranges, mandarins, grapefruit),

– Fruit which is not yet ripe

– Aubergines/egg plant, cucumbers, potatoes, peppers/capiscum, tomatoes, courgettes/zucchini,

– Some hard cheeses, e.g. Parmesan refrigerator can cause food to start deteriorating.

Storing food correctly

Food should generally be stored covered or packaged in the refrigerator

(there are some exceptions to this rule in the PerfectFresh zone - see below).

This will prevent food smells from affecting other food, food from drying out, and also any cross-contamination of bacteria. The growth of bacteria, such as salmonella, can be avoided by setting the correct temperature and maintaining good standards of hygiene.

Unpacked meat and vegetables

Unpackaged meat and vegetables should be stored separately. To avoid any microbiological cross-contamination, these foods may only be stored together if they are wrapped.

When shopping for food

The freshness of food when first placed in the appliance is an important factor in determining how long it stays fresh, and how long it can be kept in the refrigerator. Always observe the use-by date and recommended storage temperature.

Time out of the refrigerator, e.g. during transportation, should be kept to a minimum. For example, do not allow food to stay in a hot car for too long.

Once food has started to deteriorate, this process cannot be reversed. As little as two hours outside the

32

Storing food in the PerfectFresh zone

Food is stored at a lower temperature in the PerfectFresh zone than in the refrigerator section. The humidity in the

PerfectFresh zone compartments can also be regulated to suit the food being stored, providing ideal storage conditions and ensuring that food stays fresh considerably longer while retaining both flavour and vitamins.

Storage temperature

The optimum storage temperature for fresh food which is not sensitive to cold is 0 - 3 °C. This is the temperature range which is automatically maintained in the PerfectFresh zone.

Food can be stored there at this temperature without loss of freshness for considerably longer than in a standard refrigerator, as the deterioration process is decelerated at this temperature.

Remember that the fresher the food when placed in the appliance, the longer it will stay fresh.

Humidity level

The humidity level in the PerfectFresh compartment will depend on

– the moisture content of the food being stored and

– the quantity of food being stored.

Use the regulator to adjust the humidity level in the PerfectFresh compartment.

The closer the storage humidity is to the humidity content of the food, the crisper and fresher the food remains over a longer period, as the water content of the food is largely retained.

Storing food in the

PerfectFresh zone compartments

You can adjust the relative humidity in the PerfectFresh compartment with the regulator.

Slide the regulator to the relative humidity level required.

. = high humidity. The regulator closes the vents to the compartment and retains the moisture already present. The humidity level greatly depends on the type and quantity of food being stored.

Please take into account that high humidity is only achieved and effective if the food is stored unwrapped or

loosely wrapped.

– The high humidity setting

. is ideal for storing freshly harvested produce such as vegetables, salad, herbs, cabbage and home-grown seasonal fruit.

33

Storing food in the PerfectFresh zone

, = low humidity.

The regulator opens the vents to the compartment to allow the moisture to escape.

If the regulator is set at low humidity

,, the humidity will be approx. the same as the humidity in the refrigerator section. At this setting, the low temperature is the main advantage of the compartment rather than the humidity.

– With low humidity

, selected, the

PerfectFresh compartment is ideal for storing particularly sensitive foods, such as fresh fish, shellfish, meat, poultry, sausages, dairy products and salad.

Please note that foods rich in protein deteriorate faster than others.

Shellfish, for example, deteriorates faster than fish, and fish deteriorates faster than meat.

Always keep these foods covered or

wrapped.

Exception: Meat. The surface of the meat dries out slightly, helping to prevent the growth of bacteria, which results in the meat lasting longer. To prevent the risk of bacterial cross-contamination and meat deteriorating, do not let one type of meat come into direct contact with another type.

Take food out of the PerfectFresh zone approx. 30 - 60 minutes before using it. The aroma and taste do not fully develop until the food has reached room temperature.

Can all types of food be stored together?

Do not place all types of food together in one compartment. Some types of food do not store well together. Aromas and flavours can transfer from one type of food to another (e.g. carrots absorb the smell and flavour of onions very easily). Some food also gives off a natural gas (ethylene) which speeds up the rate at which other food perishes.

Examples of fruit and vegetables which produce a large amount of this natural gas are:

Apples, apricots, pears, nectarines, peaches, plums, avocados, figs, blueberries, melons and beans.

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.

Example: Broccoli should not be stored with apples, as apples produce a large amount of natural gas to which broccoli is very sensitive. The result is a shorter than expected storage time for the broccoli.

34

Storing food in the PerfectFresh zone

The following tips may help if you find that food you have stored does not keep well (e.g. food becomes limp or wilts after only being stored for a short time):

^ Only use the appliance for storing fresh food. The condition of the food when it is first placed in the appliance is an important factor in determining how long it stays fresh.

^ Clean food before placing it in the PerfectFresh zone.

^ Allow very moist food to drain before placing it in the PerfectFresh zone.

^ Do not store food which is sensitive to cold in the PerfectFresh zone

(see "Food which is not suitable for storing in the refrigerator")

^ Bear in mind that not all types of food can be stored together (see "Can all types of food be stored together?").

^ Select the correct PerfectFresh compartment (high or low humidity).

^ Store food unwrapped in the high humidity PerfectFresh compartment.

High humidity in the PerfectFresh compartment can only be achieved by storing food which contains moisture in it.

If the humidity is not high enough, because, for example, too little food has been stored in the compartment, you can use a wet sponge to increase the humidity.

^ If you think that the temperature in the PerfectFresh zone is too high or too low, try regulating it via the refrigerator section by altering the temperature of the refrigerator section slightly by 1 to 2 °C.

The temperature must be increased if ice crystals start to form on the floor of the

PerfectFresh zone as otherwise the cold temperature will damage the food.

^ If a lot of water has gathered on the base of the PerfectFresh zone, dry the base with a towel. Drain food before storage or place a rack on the floor of the

PerfectFresh zone and place the food on the rack so that the moisture can drip down.

35

Adjusting the interior fittings

Moving the shelves

The shelves can be adjusted according to the height of the food.

^ Raise the shelf, and pull it forwards slightly until the notch at the side is in line with the shelf support. It can then be raised or lowered to the required level.

The raised edge at the back must face upwards to prevent food from touching the back of the appliance and freezing to it.

Stoppers prevent the shelves from being dislodged by mistake.

To move the split shelf:

^ Take both halves of the split glass shelf out,

^ fit the two brackets onto the supports on either side at the required height,

^ and push the glass shelves in one after the other. The shelf with the raised edge must be at the back.

Split shelf

In order to accommodate tall items in the appliance, one of the shelves is divided. The front section can be pushed under the rear section.

^ Push the rear half of the glass shelf up slightly from below.

^ At the same time, pull the front half of the glass shelf forwards slightly and then push it carefully under the rear half.

36

Adjusting the interior fittings

PerfectFresh zone compartments

The compartments in the PerfectFresh zone are on telescopic rails, and can be removed for filling, emptying or cleaning purposes.

^ Pull out the compartment as far as it will go, and then lift it up and out.

Push the runners back in again to avoid injury or damage.

^ Carefully pull out the lid between the compartments slightly, and lift it down and out.

^ To replace it, insert the compartment lid from beneath into the holders, and push it back into place.

To replace the compartment,

Adjusting the condiment tray/bottle shelf

^ Lift the tray/shelf up and out of the stainless steel frame to remove.

^ Push up the stainless steel frame, and remove.

^ Replace the frame at the required height. Ensure that it is securely pushed back into position.

^ Some stainless steel frames are easier to remove and replace if you put your hand behind the back bar of the frame and lift it upwards.

^ Replace the tray/shelf in the frame.

The tray/shelf can be removed completely and used as a serving tray at the table.

^ place it back on the fully extended runners a. The front of the runners must be right up against the front of the compartment b.

^ Then push the compartment back in c.

37

Adjusting the interior fittings

Universal container

(depending on model)

The universal container can be used both to store and serve food.

Moving the bottle divider

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.

The bottle divider can be removed completely (e.g. for cleaning).

^ To do this, push up the front edge of the bottle divider, and disengage it.

It consists of a deep tray a and a shallow tray b. Both trays fit the stainless steel frame.

If you wish to use the universal container to serve food,

^ place the shallow tray b in the stainless steel frame, and use the deep tray as a lid a.

You can lift the universal container, including contents, out of the frame and take it to the table.

38

Freezing and storing food

Maximum freezing capacity

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".

The maximum capacity quoted is calculated in accordance with DIN EN

ISO 15502.

Freezing fresh food

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.

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.

If food is frozen quickly, the cells have less time to lose moisture, so they shrink less. As there is not so much moisture loss, it is easier for the food to reabsorb it during the defrosting process, and very little water collects around the defrosted food.

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 temperature 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 cool 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.

39

Freezing and storing food

Home freezing

Only freeze fresh food which is in a good condition.

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, lettuce, 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 plunge into ice-cold water to cool quickly. 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.

– 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.

Unsuitable packing material

- wrapping paper

- grease-proof paper

- cellophane

- bin bags

- plastic carrier bags

Suitable packing material

- plastic freezer film

- freezer bags

- aluminium foil

- freezer containers

^ 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

- freezer tape.

Freezer bags may also be sealed using home heat sealing kits.

40

Freezing and storing food

^ Make a note of the contents and the date of freezing on the packaging.

Before placing food in the freezer

^ When freezing more than 2 kg of fresh food, switch on the Super freeze function some time before placing the food in the freezer (see

"Super freeze").

This also helps to prevent food that is already in the freezer from starting to defrost.

Placing food in the freezer

The following maximum capacities must be observed:

– freezer drawer = 25 kg

– glass cold plate = 35 kg

Food to be frozen must on no account touch food which is already frozen to avoid partial thawing.

^ Make sure that the packaging and containers are dry to prevent them sticking together when frozen.

– Freezing small amounts of food

Place the food in the upper freezer drawers.

^ Place the food flat in the bottom of the drawers so that it freezes through to the core as quickly as possible.

Please note that when removing the drawers, the lowest freezer drawer must always remain in the freezer.

When placing food on the glass cold plate make sure it does not obstruct the ventilation gaps at the back.

This is important for problem-free operation and normal energy consumption.

– Freezing the maximum amount

(see data plate)

^ Remove the upper freezer drawers.

^ Place the food flat on the upper glass cold plates so that it freezes through to the core as quickly as possible.

Once frozen:

^ Place the frozen food in the freezer drawers and push them back into the appliance.

– Large items

If you wish to freeze large items such as a turkey or game, the glass cold plates between the drawers can be removed.

^ Remove the upper freezer drawers and carefully lift and slide out the glass cold plates.

41

Freezing and storing food

Freezer calendar

The freezer calendar on the freezer drawer gives the length of time in months which various foods can be stored for effectively.

Where the storage time given on the packaging differs, follow the advice on the packaging.

2-3 months:

Cakes, ice cream, stews

3-5 months:

Fish, mushrooms, bread

6-8 months:

Pork, veal, poultry

10-12 months:

Beef, fruit, vegetables

Defrosting

Frozen food can be defrosted in different ways:

– in a microwave oven,

– in an oven using the "Fan" or

"Defrost" setting,

– at room temperature,

– in the refrigerator (the cold given off by the frozen food helps to keep the other food cold),

– in a steam oven.

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. Danger of salmonella poisoning.

Ensure that meat and fish (e.g mince, chicken, fish fillets) do not come into contact with other foods when thawing.

Collect the liquid and dispose of it carefully.

Fruit should be defrosted at room temperature in its packaging, 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 due to changes in the cell structure.

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.

42

Freezing and storing food

Ice cubes

^ Fill the ice tray three quarters full with water and place it 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 twisting the tray gently or by holding it under cold running water for a short while.

Cooling drinks

Do not store cans or bottles containing carbonated drinks or liquids which could freeze in the freezer section. The cans or bottles could explode.

When cooling non-carbonated drinks quickly in the freezer section, make sure bottles are not left in for more

than one hour, otherwise they could burst.

Cool pack

The cool pack prevents the temperature in the freezer rising too quickly in the event of a power cut. This can help to prolong the storage time.

^ Place the cool pack in the top drawer of the freezer.

The cool pack will be at its most effective after it has been in the freezer for approx. 24 hours.

In the event of a power cut:

^ Place the frozen cool pack directly on top of the frozen food in the front of the top drawer.

When placing fresh food in the freezer, use the cool pack to separate the fresh food from the food which is already frozen so that the frozen food does not begin to thaw.

The cool pack can also be used in a cool bag to keep food or drinks cool for a short period of time.

43

Defrosting

Refrigerator section and

PerfectFresh zone

Condensate and frost can build up on the back wall of the refrigerator section and the PerfectFresh zone whilst in use.

You do not need to remove this, as it will defrost and evaporate automatically with the warmth generated by the appliance.

The condensate is drained away via a channel and drain hole into an evaporation system at the back of the appliance.

Freezer section

This appliance is equipped with a "Frost free" system. The freezer section defrosts automatically.

The moisture generated in the appliance collects on the condenser and is automatically defrosted and dissipated by the condenser from time to time.

This automatic defrosting system enables the freezer section to remain permanently ice-free, however, the food stored in the freezer section will not defrost.

Ensure that the condensate channel and drain hole are kept clean and are never blocked so that condensate can flow away without hindrance.

44

Cleaning and care

A range of Miele branded cleaning and conditioning products is available to order from Miele or www.miele-shop.com.

Make sure that no water can penetrate into the electronic unit or into the light.

Do not let water get into the condensate channel and drain hole when cleaning.

Do not use steam cleaning apparatus to clean the appliance.

Steam could reach 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.

The stainless steel doors have a special finish which is resistant to soiling.

Do not treat the doors with stainless steel conditioning agent as this will cause noticeable smearing.

However, do use Miele stainless steel conditioning agent to treat the other stainless steel surfaces of the appliance (available from Miele or www.miele-shop.com).

Unlike stainless steel cleaning agents, the conditioning agent does not contain any abrasive substances and will gently remove soiling. Each time it is used, it forms a water and dirt repellent protective coating.

To avoid damaging the surface of your appliance, do not use:

– cleaning agents containing soda, ammonia, acids or chlorides,

– cleaning agents containing descaling agents,

– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.

powder cleaners and cream cleaners,

– solvent-based cleaning agents,

– stainless steel cleaning agents,

– dishwasher cleaner,

– oven sprays,

– glass cleaning agents,

– hard, abrasive sponges and brushes, e.g. pot scourers,

– melamine eraser blocks,

– sharp metal scrapers.

Before cleaning

^ Switch the appliance off.

^ Disconnect it from the mains.

^ Take any food out of the appliance and store it in a cool place.

^ Take out any removable parts, e.g.

shelves, for cleaning.

45

Cleaning and care

^ The bottle shelf and condiment tray in the door can be removed from their stainless steel frames for cleaning.

To remove the stainless steel trim from the lid of the butter and cheese compartment (in the top of the door), proceed as follows:

^ Take the butter and cheese compartment out of the refrigerator section.

^ Open the lid of the compartment.

^ Pull the dividing plate out with both hands.

^ Take out any removable parts, e.g.

shelves, for cleaning.

The stainless steel trim is a tight fit across the plastic lid and will require sufficient force to detach it.

Cleaning the interior and accessories

^ Clean the appliance at least once a month.

Remove soiling immediately to prevent it from drying on.

^ Detach the stainless steel trim from the edge of the lid (1.) at one side and remove.

^ Press the white plastic stoppers out of notches (2.).

^ After cleaning, refit the stainless steel trim onto the lid in the reverse order.

^ Remove the compartments and the lid from the PerfectFresh zone (see

"Adjusting the interior fittings -

PerfectFresh zone compartments")

Use lukewarm water with a little washing-up liquid.

The following are dishwasher safe:

– the butter dish, egg trays and ice cube tray (supplied as standard, depending on model)

– the bottle shelf and condiment tray in the door (removed from their stainless steel frames)

– the butter and cheese compartment

(with the stainless steel trim removed)

The stainless steel frames and the stainless steel trim on the butter and cheese compartment in the door are

not suitable for cleaning in a dishwasher.

46

Cleaning and care

Appliance doors, side panels

The temperature of the dishwasher programme must not exceed 55 °C.

Contact with some foodstuffs, such as carrots, tomatoes or ketchup can cause plastic items to discolour.

However, this discolouration will not affect the stability of plastic items.

^ Clean the interior shelves, dividing plate, compartment and compartment lids by hand. These are

not suitable for cleaning in a dishwasher.

^ 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.

^ After cleaning, wipe 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.

^ Miele stainless steel conditioning agent can be used to remove any soiling from stainless steel trim and frames.

^ It is important to treat the stainless steel frames and trim with Miele stainless steel conditioning agent each time they are cleaned. This will protect the surface and help prevent resoiling.

Remove any soiling from the appliance doors and side panels immediately.

If this is not done, it might become impossible to remove and could cause the surface to alter or discolour.

All surfaces are susceptible to scratching.

Contact with unsuitable cleaning agents can alter or discolour the surfaces.

^ The surfaces should be cleaned using a solution of hot water and a little washing-up liquid applied with a soft sponge. They can also be cleaned with a damp microfibre cloth

(without using any cleaning agent).

^ After cleaning, wipe with a damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth.

Stainless steel appliances

– Appliance doors

The appliance doors have a high quality, special finish which is resistant to soiling and is very easy to clean.

Do not use the following to clean/condition the doors

– stainless steel cleaning agent: this will damage the surface.

– Miele stainless steel conditioning agent: this will cause noticeable smearing.

47

Cleaning and care

– Side panels

^ Use Miele stainless steel conditioning agent to remove any soiling from stainless steel surfaces.

^ Make sure you treat the side panels with Miele stainless steel conditioning agent each time you clean them.

This will give them a water and dirt repellent protective coating and help prevent re-soiling.

Metal grille at the back of the appliance

The compressor and metal grille at the back of the appliance (heat exchanger) must be dusted at least once a year. A build-up of dust will increase the energy consumption of the appliance.

When cleaning make sure that the cable, pipework and other components do not get broken, kinked or damaged in any way.

Ventilation gaps

^ The ventilation gaps should be cleaned regularly with a brush or vacuum cleaner. A build-up of dust will increase the energy consumption of the appliance.

Door seals

Do not use any oils or grease on the door seals as these will cause the seals to deteriorate and become porous over time.

The door seals should be cleaned regularly with clean water, and then wiped dry with a soft cloth.

After cleaning

^ Push the dividing plate in until it clicks into place.

^ Replace all shelves and accessories in the refrigerator section.

^ Put the food back in the refrigerator.

^ Reconnect to the mains and switch the appliance back on.

^ Switch on the Super freeze function so that the freezer can cool down quickly.

^ Once the freezer has reached the required temperature, place the food back in the freezer drawers and put them back in the freezer.

^ Switch off the Super freeze function as soon as the temperature in the freezer is a constant -18 °C or colder.

Problem solving guide

Repairs to electrical appliances should only be carried out by a suitably qualified and competent person in strict accordance with current local and national safety regulations. Repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for unauthorised work.

What to do if . . .

. . . the temperature in the refrigerator section or freezer section is too low.

^ Select a warmer temperature.

^ Check that the doors have been closed properly.

^ Has a large amount of fresh food been put in at the same time for freezing?

This makes the compressor run for longer, causing the temperature to fall automatically.

^ Super cool has not yet switched itself off.

^ Super freeze has not yet switched itself off.

. . . the refrigerator section or freezer section does not get cold.

^ Check whether the relevant section is switched on. The temperature display must be lit up.

^ Check that the plug is correctly inserted into the socket and switched on.

^ Check that the fuse is not defective and the mains fuse has not tripped. If it has, there could be a fault with the household electrical wiring, the fridge/freezer or another electrical appliance. Contact a qualified electrician or Miele.

. . . the compressor is switching in too frequently and for too long.

^ Check whether the ventilation gaps have been covered over or become dusty.

^ Check whether the metal grille (heat exchanger) at the back of the appliance has become too dusty.

. . . 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 several times in succession is preventing it from opening. Wait a few minutes and then try again. It should now open without force.

51

Problem solving guide

^ The doors have been opened too frequently, or a large amount of fresh food has been put in at once for freezing.

^ Check that the doors have been closed properly.

. . . the compressor runs continuously.

To save energy, the compressor runs at a lower speed, but for longer, when less cooling is required. In this case, the motor runs for longer.

. . . the alarm sounds and the alarm off sensor is flashing.

One of the sections is too warm, because

^ the door has been opened too frequently, or large amounts of fresh food have been placed in the appliance at once.

^ the ventilation gaps are blocked.

Once the problem has been resolved and the correct temperature has been reached, the alarm indicator will go out and the alarm will stop.

. . . the frozen food is thawing because the freezer is too warm.

^ Is the room temperature lower than the ambient temperature for which the appliance is designed?

. . . bars light up in the temperature displays.

Check the temperature display about 6 hours after switching on the appliance.

Only temperatures within the range the appliance can display will be shown.

If so, increase the temperature of the room.

Operating in a room which is too cold will cause the cooling system to switch off for too long, causing the freezer to become too warm.

. . . "

_F" appears in the temperature

display.

There is a fault. Call Miele Service.

. . . food has frozen together.

Use a blunt instrument, e.g. a spoon handle or plastic scraper, to prise it apart carefully.

. . . the Change active charcoal filter indicator is red.

^ Replace the active charcoal filters.

You can order replacement filters via your Miele dealer or Miele.

52

Problem solving guide

. . . "

nA" appears in the temperature

display.

The temperature has risen too high at some point during the last couple of days because of a power cut.

^ Touch the alarm off sensor whilst "nA" is lit up in the display.

The LED lighting may only be repaired or replaced by a service technician.

There are live electrical components under the cover. Danger of injury and damage to the appliance.

The temperature display will show the warmest temperature recorded in the freezer section during the power cut.

Depending on the temperature displayed, you should check the condition of food in the freezer section.

If it has defrosted or started to defrost, check that it is still safe to use and if so use it as soon as possible. Defrosted food may only be re-frozen after it has been cooked.

The warmest temperature will show in the display for about 1 minute. The display will then revert to showing the current temperature in the freezer section.

. . . you cannot switch the appliance off.

The safety lock has been activated.

Do not remove the cover. If the cover is damaged or needs to be removed due to damage, exercise

caution. There are lasers in the lighting (laser beam class 1M) which you should avoid looking at directly.

Do not use optical instruments

(magnifying glass or similar) to look at the lighting either.

. . . the floor of the refrigerator section is wet.

The condensate drain hole is blocked.

^ Clean the condensate channel and drain hole.

If you still cannot remedy the fault having followed these suggestions, please contact the Miele Service

Department.

To prevent unnecessary loss of temperature it is advisable not to open the doors while waiting for the appliance to be serviced.

. . . the interior lighting in the refrigerator is not working.

^ Was the refrigerator door left open for too long? The lighting switches itself off automatically after approx. 15 minutes if the door is left open.

If this is not the case, then the interior lighting is defective.

^ Call Miele Service.

Changing the door hinging

Refitting the handles

Please make sure you follow the instructions below carefully when you refit the handles. The door seal will be damaged if the handle is fitted incorrectly.

It is important to check that the side section of the handle d does not come into contact with the door seal when opening the door, as this would damage the door seal permanently.

If, after you have refitted the handle, you find that the side section does touch the door seal when the door is opened:

^ Realign mounting plate c with grub screws a until the mounting plate and the side section of the handle d are at the correct angle and the side section does not touch the door seal when the door is opened.

^ Loosely attach the handle to the opposite side of the door with the two front screws b.

Mounting plate c must be positioned on the side of the door so that when the door is closed it is flush with the side of the appliance.

If this is not the case,

^ tighten both grub screws a with a suitable allen key until mounting plate c lines up correctly.

^ Then tighten all 4 screws b.

^ Slide the side section of the handle d into the guides on the mounting plate until it clicks into place.

To align the upper door use the long outer slots in the middle hinge plate:

^ Slightly loosen both screws c.

^ Align the door by sliding the hinge plate to the left or right.

^ Then tighten screws c.

^ Remove centre screw a from the hinge plate.

^ Slightly loosen both outer screws b.

^ Align the door by sliding the hinge plate to the left or right.

^ Then tighten screws b again. Screw a does not need to be used again.

* The appliance depth is increased by approx. 35 mm for appliances with wall spacers fitted.

a Top box b Appliance c Housing unit d Wall

Installation

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 across the entire width of the top box for air to circulate.

The cross section of the air outlet under the room ceiling must be at least

300 cm

2 to ensure that air can circulate without hindrance. Otherwise the compressor has to work harder, resulting in an increase in electricity consumption.

The ventilation gaps must not be covered or blocked in any way.

They should be dusted on a regular basis.

When built into a kitchen run (max.

housing unit depth 580 mm) the appliance can be installed directly next to the furniture housing unit. The appliance door will protrude in front of furniture fronts at the sides by 34 mm* and by 55 mm* in the middle of the doors. This enables the doors to be opened without hindrance.

When installed next to a wall d a distance of approx. 55 mm must be maintained on the hinge side between the wall d and the appliance b, so that the doors and the handles have sufficient space for opening.
