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 should be recycled.

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

Electrical and electronic appliances often contain materials which, if handled or disposed of incorrectly, could be potentially hazardous to human health and to the environment.

They are, however, essential for the correct functioning of your appliance.

Please do not therefore dispose of it with your household waste.

Please dispose of it at your local community waste collection / recycling centre or contact your dealer for advice. Ensure that it presents no danger to children while being stored for disposal.

Take care not to damage the pipework at the back of it before or during transportation to an authorised collection depot.

In this way, refrigerant in the pipework and oil in the compressor will be contained and will not leak out into the environment.

~

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, and does not have any adverse effect on the performance of the appliance.

Care must be taken during the transportation and setting up 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.

~

The more coolant there is in an appliance, the larger the room it should be installed in. In the event of a

8 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 m

3 of room space is required. The amount of coolant in the appliance is stated on the data plate inside the appliance.

~

Safe operation of the appliance is only assured if it has been installed and connected in accordance with these operating and installation instructions.

~

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 thawed or partially thawed food.

Defrosted food should be used up as quickly as possible as food soon loses it 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). 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, 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 section. The cans or bottles could explode. Danger of injury and damage to the appliance.

~

When cooling drinks quickly in the freezer section, make sure bottles are not left in for more than one hour, otherwise they could burst, causing injury or damage.

~

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.

~

Never place electric heaters or candles in the appliance to defrost it.

These can damage the plastic parts.

10

Warning and Safety instructions

~

Do not use defrosting sprays or de-icers, as they might contain substances which could damage the plastic parts or which could cause a 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.

~

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

~

Do not block the ventilation gap in the plinth or the top of the appliance housing unit as this would impair the efficiency of the appliance, increase the electricity consumption and could cause damage to the appliance.

~

This appliance is designed for use within certain climate ranges (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.

~

Never use a steam-cleaning appliance to defrost or clean this appliance. Steam could reach the electrical components and cause a short circuit.

Disposal of your old appliance

~

Before disposing of an old appliance, first make the door latches or locks unusable.

How to save energy

Installation site

Normal energy consumption

In a ventilated room.

Protected from direct sunlight.

Increased energy consumption

In an enclosed, unventilated room.

In direct sunlight.

Temperature setting with a thermostat which is approximate

(set in stages).

Temperature setting with a thermostat which is exact to the degree

(digital display).

With a medium setting of 2 to 3.

Larder section 8 to 12 °C

Refrigerator section 4 to 5 °C

PerfectFresh zone just above 0 °C

Freezer section -18 °C

Wine storage section 10 to 12 °C

Use

Not near to a heat source (radiator, oven).

Where the ideal ambient room temperature is approx. 20°C.

Do not cover the ventilation gaps and dust them regularly.

Defrosting

Near to a heat source (radiator, oven).

Where there is a high ambient room temperature.

With a high setting: the lower the temperature in the compartment, the higher the energy consumption.

On appliances with winter setting, please make sure that the winter setting is switched off when the ambient temperature is warmer than

16 °C .

Drawers, shelves and racks arranged as they were when the appliance was delivered.

Only open the door when necessary and for as short a time as possible.

Store food in an organised way.

Frequent opening of the door for long periods will cause a loss of coldness.

Searching for an item will mean the door is open for longer.

Allow hot food and drinks to cool down before placing them in the appliance.

Store food covered or packaged.

Hot food will cause the refrigerator unit to run for a long time, as the appliance will have to work harder to reduce the temperature.

The evaporation or condensation of liquids will cause a loss of coldness in the refrigerator.

Place frozen food in the refrigerator to defrost.

Do not over-fill the appliance to allow air to circulate.

Defrost the freezer section when a layer of ice 0.5 cm thick has built up.

A layer of ice hinders the cold from reaching the frozen food, and increases energy consumption.

12

Switching on and off

Before using for the first time Switching on

Important:

To ensure the correct functioning of the appliance, let it stand for between 1½ and 2 hours after transporting it to its final location before connecting it to the mains.

Protective foil

The stainless steel trim to the interior shelves and the door shelves has a layer of protective foil to prevent damage during transportation.

^ Carefully remove the protective foil from the stainless steel trim.

^ Using a coin, turn the On/Off dial in a clockwise direction away from the "0" position.

Forcing it beyond its range will damage it. Turn it only as far as it will go, then turn it back again.

Cleaning

^ Clean the inside of the appliance and the accessories with lukewarm water and a little washing-up liquid, and then dry with a soft cloth.

The temperature display for the refrigerator section will light up and the interior lighting will come on when door is opened.

The freezer section temperature indicator will light up continuously.

The alarm indicator light will also light up. It will go out when the temperature in the freezer is cold enough.

The appliance starts cooling.

Allow the appliance to run for a few hours before placing food in it. This will ensure that the temperature is sufficiently low.

Cool pack

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

Switching off

^ Using a coin, turn the temperature selector in an anti-clockwise direction back to the "0" position.

13

Switching on and off

The cooling system and the interior lighting are now switched off.

Switching off for longer periods of time

If the appliance is not going to be used for a longer period of time, e.g. whilst on holiday:

^ 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.

14

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 the appliance,

– 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.

. . . 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 section

We recommend a temperature of 5 °C in the middle of the refrigerator.

15

The correct temperature

Setting the temperature

The temperature for the refrigerator section is set using the temperature dial.

The higher or lower the temperature in the refrigerator section, the higher or lower it is in the freezer section.

^ Using a coin, turn the On/Off dial in a clockwise direction away from the "0" position.

The higher the setting, the lower the temperature in the appliance.

The temperature being set will flash in the display.

Forcing the dial beyond its range will damage it. Turn it only as far as it will go, then turn it back again.

The temperature can be set slightly colder than the displayed temperature

(e.g. between 5°C and 3 °C).

^ To do so, turn the temperature dial slowly in a clockwise direction from e.g. 5, until the 5 flashes briefly in the temperature display.

The colder temperature is now set.

If frozen food is to be stored in the

freezer section then a setting of between 3 °C to 5 ° is recommended to ensure that the required temperature in the freezer section is maintained.

It is also advisable to set the temperature within this range if the doors are opened frequently, large quantities of food are being stored in the appliance or there is a high ambient temperature.

Freezer section temperature indicator light

The indicator light shows that the freezer section is on.

Temperature display

The temperature display on the control panel always shows the

required temperature.

For example, if you want to set the temperature for the refrigerator section at 5 °C,

^ turn the temperature selector clockwise from 0 until 5°C lights up on the control panel.

16

Alarm

Your appliance has been fitted with a warning system which ensures that the temperature in the freezer cannot rise unnoticed and to avoid energy being wasted if a door is left open.

Activating the alarm system

The alarm system is always active. It does not have to be switched on manually.

Temperature alarm

An alarm will sound and the alarm indicator light will flash if the temperature in the freezer section becomes too warm.

The temperature the appliance is set at determines the temperature the appliance recognises as being too warm.

The alarm will sound and the alarm indicator light will flash,

– if the freezer door has been left open for a while, e.g. in order to load, re-arrange or take food out.

– when freezing large amounts of food at once.

– if there has been a lengthy interruption to the power supply.

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

Switching the alarm off early

The alarm will stop and the indicator light will go out when the temperature reaches the correct level again.

However, if the noise disturbs you, you can switch the alarm off before this if you wish.

^ Press the alarm off button.

The alarm will stop. The indicator light will stay on until the correct temperature has been reached. The alarm system is then ready should it be needed again.

Door alarm

The alarm will sound if the freezer section door has been left open for more than approx. 60 seconds.

17

Super freeze

Super freeze

Switch the Super freeze function on before putting fresh food into the freezer.

This helps food to freeze quickly and retain its nutrients, vitamins, flavours and appearance.

Super freeze is not necessary:

– when putting in food that is already frozen.

– when freezing less than 2 kg fresh food daily.

Switching on Super freeze

When freezing small quantities of food in the freezer, the Super freeze function should be switched on 6 hours

beforehand. When freezing the

maximum load of food the Super freeze function should be switched on

24 hours beforehand.

Switching off Super freeze

The Super freeze function will switch off automatically after approx. 65 hours.

The indicator light will go out and the appliance will run at normal power again.

To save energy, the Super freeze function can be switched off once a

constant temperature of -18°C or colder has been reached in the freezer.

You should also check the temperature inside the appliance from time to time.

^ Press the Super freeze button. The

Super freeze indicator light will go out, and the appliance will continue to operate at normal power.

^ Press the Super freeze button. The

Super freeze indicator light will come on.

The appliance works at full power to lower the temperature in the appliance.

18

Using the refrigerator efficiently

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.

Warmest area

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

Coldest area

The coldest area in a refrigerator 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 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.

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 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.

19

Using the refrigerator efficiently

Food which should not be stored in a refrigerator

Not all food is suitable for refrigeration, 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 fruit hardens.

Food which should not be stored in a refrigerator includes:

– pineapple, pomegranate, bananas, avocado, mangos, papaya, passion fruit, citrus fruit

– fruit which is not yet ripe

– aubergines/egg plant, cucumbers, potatoes, peppers/capsicum, tomatoes, courgettes,

– some hard cheeses, e.g. Parmesan

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. 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 refrigerator can cause food to start deteriorating.

Storing food correctly

Food should generally be stored covered or packaged. This will prevent food smells from affecting other foods, 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.

Fruit and vegetables

Fruit and vegetables may be stored loose in the vegetable containers.

Please be aware that not all types of fruit and vegetables are suitable for storing in the same container. 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, avocado, figs, blueberries, melons and beans.

20

Using the refrigerator efficiently

– 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.

Meat

Meat should be stored unwrapped.

(Undo wrappings slightly to leave meat loosely covered, and leave containers open). This permits air to circulate around the meat, allowing the surface to dry slightly, which helps prevent the growth of bacteria. 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.

Unpacked meat and vegetables

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

Protein rich foods

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

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

21

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.

^ 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.

To move the split shelf:

^ Take both halves of the split glass shelf out,

Adjusting the door shelf/bottle shelf

^ Push the door/bottle shelf upwards, then remove it by pulling it forwards.

^ Replace the door/bottle shelf at the required position. Ensure that it is securely pushed back into position.

22

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".

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.

23

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.

24

Freezing and storing food

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

Before placing food in the freezer section

^ When freezing more than 2 kg of fresh food, switch on the Super freeze function for 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.

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.

Freezing large items

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

^ Remove the top two freezer drawers, and carefully lift and slide out the glass cold plates.

Placing food in the freezer

Food to be frozen can be placed anywhere in the freezer.

Large quantities should be placed directly on the glass cold plates to freeze the food quickly. To do this first take out the top two freezer drawers.

When removing the top drawer, make sure that you do not block the ventilation slits in the back wall of the appliance. They are important for trouble-free operation of the appliance.

The lowest freezer drawer must always remain in the appliance.

Each drawer and glass cold plate can take a maximum of 25 kg.

^ Place the food flat in the bottom of the freezer drawers or on the glass cold plates 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.

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 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.

Fruit should be defrosted at room temperature in its packaging, or in a covered bowl.

25

Freezing and storing food

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.

Freezer tray

The freezer tray is useful for freezing small items such as berries, herbs and vegetables. They can be frozen individually and therefore maintain their shape when defrosted.

^ Space the food out loosely on the tray.

Ice cubes

^ Fill the ice tray three quarters full with water, and place it in the bottom of one of the 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.

^ Hang the tray in the top or middle freezer drawer.

Leave the 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.

Cooling drinks

When placing bottles in the freezer section for rapid cooling, make sure

they are not left in for more than one

hour as they could burst.

26

Cool pack

The cool pack prevents the temperature in the freezer rising too quickly in the event of a power cut.

Place the cool pack in the top drawer of the freezer section, directly on top of the food. The cool pack will be at its most effective after it has been in the freezer for approx. 24 hours.

If there is a power cut, place the cool pack directly on top of the frozen food in the top drawer so that the food will be kept cold for as long as possible.

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.

Freezing and storing food

27

Automatic defrost

Refrigerator section

The refrigerator defrosts automatically.

Condensate and frost can build up on the back wall of the refrigerator section whilst it is 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.

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

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 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.

28

Cleaning and care

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

Do not let water get into the temperature selector or into the light.

(supplied as standard, depending on model)

– the shelves and bottle shelf in the door

– the butter and cheese compartment

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.

29

Cleaning and care

^ Clean the interior shelves and drawers 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 door open to air the appliance for a short while.

After cleaning

^ Replace all shelves and accessories in the appliance.

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

30

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.

Ensure that current is not supplied to the appliance until after maintenance or repair work has been carried out.

The Super freeze function switches itself off automatically after approx.

65 hours.

^ Check that the doors have been closed properly.

^ Has a large amount of fresh food been frozen at the same time?

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

Some minor problems can be corrected without contacting the Miele Service

Department.

What to do if . . .

. . . 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 appliance does not get cool.

^ Make sure that the temperature dial is not set at "0".

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

^ Check that the fuse is not defective and that the mains fuse has not tripped. If it has, contact the Miele

Service Department.

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

^ Turn the temperature dial to a lower setting.

^ The Super freeze function is still on and the Super freeze indicator light is on.

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

^ Check whether the ventilation gaps in the plinth and in the housing unit at the top have been covered over or become too dusty.

^ 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.

31

Problem solving guide

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

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

. . . the Super freeze indicator light and the temperature display are both flashing at the same time.

There is a fault. Call the Service

Department.

If so, raise 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 section to become too warm.

. . . food has frozen together.

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

. . . the alarm sounds and the alarm indicator light is flashing.

The temperature has risen above the setting on the temperature dial because

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

^ the temperature dial has been turned to a higher setting and the appliance has not yet had sufficient time to reach the temperature set.

^ the ventilation gaps are blocked.

Once the problem has been resolved the alarm indicator light will go out and the alarm will stop.

. . . the Super freeze indicator light does not light up, even though the appliance is working.

The indicator light is defective. Call the

Service Department.

. . . the interior light in the refrigerator section is not working.

Has the refrigerator door been left open for too long? The lighting switches itself off automatically after approx. 15 minutes.

If it also does not come on when the door is opened briefly, but the temperature display is working, then the lamp is defective.

^ Disconnect the appliance from the mains. Switch off at the wall and withdraw the plug from the socket, or disconnect the mains fuse or remove the screw-out fuse in countries where this is applicable.

^ Grasp the lamp cover at the top and at the bottom (1), and pull it forwards to remove (2).

32

^ Unscrew the lamp. This requires some strength, as the safety catch needs to be released.

^ Change the lamp.

Lamp specification:

220 - 240 V, E 14 fitting

See the old lamp for the Wattage required.

Problem solving guide

^ Screw the new lamp into the connection. Make sure the safety catch is correctly fitted a.

^ Replace the lamp cover, and click it into place at the sides.

. . . the floor of the refrigerator is wet.

The 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.

33

Noises

Normal noises

Brrrrr...

Blubb, blubb....

Click....

Sssrrrrr....

Creak ...

What causes them

Humming noise made by the motor (compressor). This noise can get louder for brief periods when the motor is switching on.

A gurgling noise can be heard when coolant is circulating through the pipes.

Clicking sounds are made when the thermostat switches the motor on and off.

On multi-zone and frost-free appliances you can sometimes just hear the movement of air circulating inside the appliance.

Creaking sounds can be heard when material inside the appliance expands.

Remember that the noise of the compressor and the coolant circulating in the system is unavoidable.

Noises that you can easily rectify

Rattling, vibrating

What causes them, and what can you do about them

The appliance is uneven: Realign the appliance using a spirit level, by raising or lowering the screw feet underneath the appliance.

The appliance is touching another appliance or piece of

Building in the appliance

Preparing the appliance

All building-in instructions given are for a right hand hinged appliance.

If you have converted the appliance to left hand hinging you will need to adapt these instructions accordingly.

Building into a peninsular run

When built into a peninsular run, the rear of the building in niche must be fitted with a kitchen furniture panel.

Aligning the housing unit

^ Slide cover strip a into the holder as shown, with the bumps facing downwards. The bumps will fit into keyhole slots b. The cover strip is then flush with the side of the appliance on which the door is opened c.

Before installing the appliance, the housing unit must be carefully aligned using a spirit level. The housing unit corners must be at right angles, as otherwise the appliance furniture door will not align correctly with the 4 corners of the unit. Align the furniture door with the hinges.

Securing the appliance and fitting the furniture door

^ Push the appliance against the housing wall on the side on which the door opens so that the sealing strip is pressed into the housing wall k.

^ Secure the appliance at the top with screw l (4 x 19 mm) into bracket b, pushing the appliance against the furniture wall as you do so.

^ Then secure the appliance in the middle by fitting screw m through the adjusting screw.

^ Then secure the appliance at the bottom by fitting screws n

(4 x 36 mm) through the adjusting screws in the hinge plates.

^ Tighten all the screws.

^ If necessary, align cover strip o by pushing it parallel to the top of the unit - it should not protrude.

^ Fold in the side section of bracket b.

^ Replace covers c and d.

^ Cap the holes with stoppers p and q.

^ Secure door fixings r to the appliance doors with screws s

(3.9 x 9.5 mm), to suit the position of the handles.

With divided doors, several door fixings may be required.

^ Open the doors right out, and push fixing guides t into door fixings r.

^ Position the furniture door onto the appliance door, and secure fixing guides t to the furniture door using screws u (4 x 14 mm). Maintain a distance d (= the thickness of the housing unit walls) between the edge of the appliance door and outer edge of the furniture door.

^ Align the door fixing so that the furniture door on the side with the handle does not lie against the housing unit wall when the door is shut. A minimum distance of 1 mm must be maintained.
